This looks increasingly like certain people there are sick of making Gears games and I don't blame them. It's not a particularly rich universe and Judgement (or whatever it's called) looks stale already. Gears 3 was very boring and I hardly saw anyone on my friends list play it for more than a couple of weeks if at all. I hope Epic can bring something new to the table early next gen though it would seem that the new consoles will be out a year at least before they could have anything ready.

To be fair, the other people commenting were a bit hard on you, but i can see why, that was a silly thing to say. I know LOTS of people who play gears 3 religiously and how can you say a game not released looks stale? I could say that of most games these days. I think what you missed of this comment is that its only your opinion.

Just want to apologise to BenThomasFoster and sibear on the behalf of that gears414 chap on account of him acting like, to borrow one of his more tame choice of insults, a massive tit.

Issue has been dealt with.

Large numbers of the company's directors leaving. I can smell a buy out. Me thinks Epic may be becoming part of Microsoft Game Studios proper.

Just a hunch though.

Don't apologise for others actions, that route leads down a slippery slope. First you'll blame yourself, then you'll get angry and hate yourself. Then comes the time when you can't cope and have to drink toilet duck just to get through the days. Soon you'll realise toilet duck just isn't strong enough to get rid of the pain so you move onto something stronger, mashing down and snorting calgon tablets, including the powerball for extra cleaning action.

It's a swipperwy swope awwight.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Epic are independent though?

I sure hope not

Epic must make a fair bit of cash with all the Unreal licensing.

I think you might be right. That's Mike Capps, Cliff Blezinski, Ray Muzyka, Greg Zeschuk and Peter Molyneux recently. I have a horrible feeling they may have all left because they don't like the direction of next-gen game consoles and it'd be a perfect time for them to move on.

Perhaps they're going to form a sort of supergroup games company; the Foo Fighters of games.
