ZA Critique: Gears of War

I know what you're thinking. The other blogs have slowed down or you got lost and you clicked into here, looking for some kind of inspiration. Some sense that yes, my desire to read about video games to this degree will be validating someday.

My friend, that day has come. Because what you need, what the world needs, is another Gears of War post.

A thorough description of the reload mechanism. An engaging look at how the game actually isn't really that sexual with quotes from Vorpal Bunny Ranch. A charming comparison between Homeric epics and the game's motifs thanks to Roger Travis. Yes...it's all right here folks. Just thinking about that game now makes me hear that beautiful ring, that classic sound:

Pew...pew pew pew. Pew pew pew pew pew pew pew.
