Default Epic may ban those who spoil Gears 3

Good move.

First up at Eurogamer: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...-spoil-gears-3

Then at IGN stealing from Eurogamer: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/118/1187890p1.html

I agree. Funny how people at eurogamer were ragging on Epic for this stating, but the people at IGN supported this.
Douchebags shouldn't leak this kind of stuff because it ruins the game for people.
Wonder how they're going to ban the people that are leaking the game though. Hell, I wonder how they're going to find them.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Well, since the majority of people are completely retarded and forget to plug out the interwebs, it is not all that hard to be honest.

Heck, when I got Black Ops three or four days ahead of release I did not dare to have the wireless adapter plugged in due to the fear of ban. Thou it would not have been an all that big deal tbh.

Joking yes?

I hope they sort out people who glitch the map like on Gears 2.

Good move! They did the same thing for George R.R Martin's A Dance with Dragons. I don't want to know how Gears of War 3 ends, who dies and who lives, anything to do with the game until I play and complete it myself.

Nope. Admittedly, I'm oh-so-slightly bitter at the recent decline in arena shooters, but it's really a shame to see Epic go from creating an amazing series of games that pretty much defined a generation of gamers to...well...Gears.

After all, the first game was a bit of fun with friends, but it was never more than that. Mechanically, it did nothing that Killswitch didn't do several years prior (and better). The story was one of the most non-engaging I've ever found in a series of supposedly story-driven games, and the multiplayer felt clunky and shoehorned in compared to the sickeningly fluid gameplay I'd come to expect from Epic.

Also, the real killer for me is the way that Epic spent little to no effort promoting Unreal Tournament 3 in favour of over-hyping the GoW franchise, then came out and said that UT3's launch was 'extremely underwhelming'. They create good games and frankly brilliant engines, but seeming to almost deliberately kill off the series that made the company what they are (and what got me seriously into gaming) is nothing short of depressing to me.

Unreal Tournament 3 had good gameplay in concept but in practice it was weak. The same thing over and over, your in an arena with enemies, kill them. No story changes the levels, no real plot developments. And I felt the multiplayer was too "common", it felt like every other shooter multiplayer there has ever been.

Gears of War is Epic's crowning achievement, they've created a franchise that will perhaps one day join other franchises that have become colossal, like Halo, Star Wars or 40k. Gears has a great storyline that really shows humanity fighting for its survival, the strength they all have together, and the protagonists own stories that pull you in even further. And its multiplayer is rare in that it actually has good new ideas, in how many shooters can you pick up your wounded foe and use him as a bullet shield as so many badass characters in fiction have done?
