Default Gears of War 3

I am rather looking forward to playing this game and seeing how this franchise chooses to end its trilogy (hear that Halo?). This series is probably the only reason i still own a 360, and if they ever ported them to the pc (or if Windows 8 will play them in emulation mode) i'll ditch my 360 all together.

First review out for it: Gears Of War 3 Video Game, Review HD | Video Clip | Game Trailers & Videos | GameTrailers.com

Best shooter series out there IMHO.
Can't wait to get this game, it was the reason why I picked up a 360 and one of the few games I still play on either console (my PS3 is relegated to a BD player pretty much).

I've had the LE preordered for a little while now, so excited to get it early next week!

Post as well if you're interest now, or later doing horde or reverse horde mode so we can team up at some point in the future

Yep, poor fiancee had to relearn the controls which took about 30 mins since the settings she set for her sensitivity at the main screen wasn't kept when we launched the campaign.

I'm a few hours in to the campaign now and loving it. Glad it's finally released as it's the only reason I still have an xbox. Just want to beat the campaign and get closure to the story, then it's a 360 for sale.

Anyone finish it yet and can provide a rough length? Or how many acts/chapters there are?

On another site I visit they were saying it was about 8-10 hours on normal difficulty playing by themselves. Now for me it'll probably take 1.5 times as long as it would normally take me as sometimes my fiancee gets lost or I have to point out where ammo for her guns are (she's fine in combat, its getting around after and before she needs a seeing eye dog). We're playing it in arcade mode so I saw that it has the traditional 5 Acts we've come to expect from Gears.
