Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

DAILY MANIFESTO

GR Game Diary 05/03/2011

Posted on Tuesday, May 3 @ 21:45:27 Eastern by

It's kind of nice writing in the Game Diary every day of the week. While I'd love to capture and post gameplay of the latest and greatest games this often, I can't say that capturing, encoding, editing, and uploading gameplay is all that easy. And I don't even edit!

Today's focus is on the King of the Hill game type. You'll see in the video that the objective in KotH is to capture a specified area and hold it until time runs out. Enemies who enter the area will break your team's control. I've been told that King of the Hill in Gears of War 3 is akin to Annex mode. I didn't play Gears of War 2 enough to know what that means but there you go.

The gameplay above was captured in a King of the Hill game on Thrashball, the fictional evolution of Football in the Gears universe. I don't know if I get it on film but the scoreboard hanging over the center of the field can be shot and subsequently used to crush anyone who happens to be underneath it. I've only managed to use it to team kill but I had fun doing it!

You'll also see the Sawed-Off Shotgun in action. At close range you can really turn an enemy player into hunks of bloody, Unreal-Engine-rendered meat. That's just what Gears needed, another over powered shotgun for people to abuse right? I actually think it gives people new to Gears a fair amount of strength to lean on. When the hill is highly contested you can take out two or three enemies with the sawed-off while blind-firing.

Let's watch and keep an eye out for tomorrow's finally gameplay video of Capture the Leader.
