Gears of War 3 out September

Gears of War, the popular, and ever so gory, third -person shooter series now has an official release date for its third and final installment. Gears of War 3, which was originally set to be released sometime this spring, now has an official release date of September 20, 2011 (IGN).  IGN also states that there is some speculation as to whether the game will use Kinect, Microsoft’s new motion sensor technology for the Xbox 360.
I’m sorry, but what?  Motion sensors for a shooting game?  Don’t get me wrong, I think Kinect is a really cool concept.  Motion sensing technology without a controller is a fantastic idea.  But how that could possibly be efficient in shooter?  Imagine, when you have to go into cover, you dive behind your couch.  Or maybe baseball pitch motion could activate a grenade toss.  Either way, it just sounds ridiculous in concept, and I’m pretty sure that most people playing Gears of War are not avid Kinect gamers.

And that, my friends, is what really grinds my gears of war.
