I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Is This Gears Of War: Tactics Game Real?

Posted on Friday, February 15 @ 13:00:00 Eastern by

The screenshot above (more below) reportedly shows an alpha build of a game tentatively titled Gears of War: Tactics, a spin-off of Epic's third-person shooter series that uses the Kinect for input. At least that's what VGleaks says.

The article which was run without a byline and without a source for the leak says that Gears of War: Tactics gives players control over four Gears. Players draw a path with their finger to move characters around the map and again use Kinect controls to select actions and attack.

I'm skeptical about the Kinect's use with this game. If the project is real I'd be willing to be that it's been changed from targeting the Xbox 360 and is now a "Windows 8" game, meaning you'll be able to go turn-for-turn with friends whether they're on the Next-Gen Xbox, a Windows tablet, or a Windows Phone. Wouldn't using a touch screen make a lot more sense than prodding the air in front of your TV?

With the success of X-COM: Enemy Unknown and Fire Emblem: Awakening, a Microsoft-branded strategy game can't be completly out of the question, right?
