Marcus In Chains? Now updated – it’s Baird and Cole!

Ooh, look – the (slightly disappointing) third game in the “Gears of War” saga wasn’t the last word on DudeBros in Do-Rags saving the day and kerb-stomping monster men into oblivion.  Funny, I had a feeling that it wouldn’t be.

Eurogamer has a story – inspired by Game Informer’s cover above – which guesstimates a big reveal for a new game in the 360 signature FPS series in next week’s Xbox 360 press conference at E3 .  I’m thinking Kinect support with Baird and Anya dance-off mini-games and a sweet Kart Racing level (like “Joyride”! Only worse!)

See, this whole ‘Appealing to the Normals’ thing is easy…

Updated – Saturday 2 June 2012!

Cole Train, baby – Woo!

The other two “Game Informer” magazine covers have leaked prior to E3’s Monday kick-off and feature Baird and Cole from the other “Gears” games, with the frequently bickering odd couple leading a different squadron in a game said to offer a prequel side-story to the current trilogy.  It’s also supposed to be developed by People Will Fly, who brought you the excellent and underrated SF shooter, Bulletstorm.

The king of the frosted tip, the bard of bad attitude, the one-liner whiner – Damon Baird

“Education? Me? With my busy schedule?”

Posting has been lighter today than I would have liked and this young fellow is who you should blame/send a bouquet of flowers to.

See, Hagrid is a lovely boy but has some distinct behavioural challenges that we would like to eradicate – pulling on the lead when out walking,  barking lengthily at dogs who walk past his window and his zero tolerance policy on Spaniels are all things which we would like to make a thing of Hagrid’s past.

To this end, we’ve started to see a dog trainer one-to-one and we’ve begun to put a programme in place which should help our slightly Lairy Lurcher become the fine and well-mannered gentlemen that he clearly would like to be.

Just look at that face.  He’s a ruddy delight and no mistake, but that’s no reason to think that he can’t be ruddier and infinitely more delightful.   He’ll make friends with Spaniels yet.
