Episode 78 - Gears of War

12Nov

In this month's gritty episode of the Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) lock 'n load and run for cover as they discuss the first installment of the classic XBox series, Gears of War. You'll get two perspectives on the game: one from a seasoned veteran of the series, and one from a first-time player.  During this month's Concertcast, the guys cover a vast timeline as they come up with their Top 7 albums of the 1970's. Will Rich find another game that improves his opinion about modern, 3rd person shooters? Will Shawn have different feelings about this title after so many years behind him? And how does the original Gears hold up over the years with multiple additions to the series? Tune in and fine out!
