The End of the War

by G. Christopher Williams

31 October 2011

Gears of War 3 marks the ostensible ending of one of the Xbox 360's earliest games.

With the holiday game season upon us, the Moving Pixels blog and podcast crew have turned their atention to some of the biggest releases of the year.  The ostensible “final chapter” of the Gears of War saga is, of course, one of these most anticipated of titles.

Given Gears importance in this console generation, as one of the titles associated with the Xbox 360’s early days, the crew discusses how the trilogy has been brought to an end, its approach to multiplayer play, and speculates a bit on where this franchise may be headed in the future.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
