The best games from E3 2018 - Geared Up!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Video Games, Videos, Wireless / WiFi,

E3, the biggest gaming convention in the U.S., started with a bang this week. Geared Up co-host Andru Edwards is down in Los Angeles for the show and on this episode, we run down the big game announcements of the year from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. Microsoft is pushing to make more Xbox-exclusive games by buying four popular game studios and founding another studio of its own; Sony's games didn't stand out as much as its bizarre press conference; and Nintendo's Super Smash Bros was the hit of the convention. Plus, an intriguing new study on something most people want nothing to do with: Airport WiFi.

Bleeding Edge TV 613: Gears of War Xbox One Elite Controller Review

As a follow-up to the Gears of War 4 custom Xbox One S console that I showed you the other day, here's a look at the limited edition Gears of War 4 Xbox One Elite Wireless controller! This is the very first custom Elite controller that Microsoft has released for the Xbox One, and as you can see, the design is super unique, and very much Gears of War-themed through and through. You get everything you'd find on the standard Elite controller, like the paddles on the back, removable thumbsticks and d-pad, and super-solid build. It costs $50 more than the regular Elite controller, and what you are paying for there is the Gears of War 4 design, because functionally  the two controllers are exactly the same. What do you think? Would you pick up a $200 Xbox controller?

Unboxing Live 197: Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Xbox One S console

Microsoft has released the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 limited edition console, and I think it's the most impressive game console release to date from a design perspective. I give you a look at the custom red Xbox One S with Gears of War 4 design elements in this episode. As you can see, aside from the battle worn look, you have the deep laser etching for the claw marks on both the Xbox One S console itself, as well as the included Gears of War 4 controller. Microsoft did a fantastic job!

Gears of War ultimate Mad World

Microsoft is set to release the remastered Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One in just over a week, and today the launch trailer was released, bringing back the Mad World title track that was used years ago with the original. You can watch the trailer after the break, which includes all new in-game footage that shows just how great Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is going to look once it hits Xbox One consoles. The original Mad World trailer is recognized as one of the most memorable video game trailers of all time, due to its use of emotion to convey the heavy situation that the Gears would be facing.

Gear of War: Ultimate Edition is completely remastered, and runs in 1080p at 60fps, even in multiplayer. The game will be available on August 25th, and you can pre-order it now. If you don't have an Xbox One yet, there is even a Gear of War: Ultimate Edition console bundle.

Gears of War 3 beta review

gears of war 3 beta

"Gears of War 3," the final installment in the Gears of War trilogy, is slated to hit store shelves on September 20, bringing the war between The Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) and the Locust Hoard to its conclusion. However, you don't have to wait until the fall to play the game; developer Epic Games has given those who purchased "Bulletstorm: Epic Edition" or pre-ordered "Gears of War 3" a chance to take the online multiplayer for a spin. New and returning gamers will appreciate all the new weapons, characters, and the smooth online experience.

The "Gears of War" beta comes with a purpose. Besides letting gamers preview the title before its release, Epic Games is using it to test its new dedicated online servers. The studio is also looking to iron out any bugs, glitches, and exploits that plagued the previous series entries.

The gameplay of "Gears of War 3" multiplayer remains mostly the same, but it incorporates new weapons, maps, game modes, and game play mechanics. Gamers will continue to strategically go in and out of cover to get a better position for the kill.
