I'm about as excited for Gears of War 4 as I was for 2 and 3.
I just don't care.
Don't get me wrong. I don't HATE the Gears of War franchise. I just think this video sums it up really REALLY well:
You like what you like though bro. I didn't absolutely hate the first game, and maybe, just maybe, this will be a game I look into, depending on what's different.
I think the overall problem I've had with Gears of War is that I just don't find it to be a good third person shooter, and it has an incredibly lackluster story about roided out dudes without sleeves. It's about as interesting as Bulletstorm was 3 weeks after launch. There just wasn't enough substance there to keep me interested, in very much the same way that Call of Duty didn't have enough substance to actually get me to pick up a new CoD game in the last 4 years.
That being said, I hope I can have a negative opinion on something and express it in a constructive way without the risk of getting an account warning for holding an opinion.
Can't argue with that, the story mostly is dudes killing things. But, even though I was skeptical about the games at first I ended up liking them. In fact I DIDN'T want the games, they just happened to come with the xbox one, so I game them a shot, and oh boy...

Personally, I was hoping for a prequel set in the tail end of the pendulum wars (the war that occurred before the Locust war, which ended just several weeks before E day). When I realized there was going to be a sequel, I was pretty well stoked.
Speaking of release, an article I read the other day claimed that the release date is aimed at October 11th (my birthday, which would be pretty awesome). Not sure if that will indeed be the case.
Side not, I'm calling it, the D in JD stands for Dom. Just my own speculation.
Yeah, I did as well expect to see a prequel instead of sequel. With all that talk about pendulum wars (which I think was about the control over imulsion) I thought we'd get to see a game about it.
I believe it has been confirmed that October 11th is going to be the release date.
And yeah, my speculation is as well that the D in JD stands for Dom.
Whenever someone says Dom I just go like, DOM!!!
