    Does anyone know how to get hold of a gears 3 beta code, i hate preordering games so dont want to do that.

    Only way is pre-order the limited edition of Gears 3. To be fair, you aren't missing that much

    or buy epic edition of bulletstorm. Tbh I wouldn't bother for me it's no different to 1 or 2 .No depth or compelling game modes same old boring tdm

    really?! ive played a lot of the beta and i say its far superior to the others, loved gears 1 to death, loved gears 2 gamemodes but not the MP and now gears 3 has best of both.

    really really excellent game, been pc gaming for a while now and gears 3 beta has made my pc gather a little dust.

    OP tough if you dont like preordering, if you want the beta thats all you can do, unless your a microsoft VIP which i doubt it.

    That's fine enjoy playing your game. When I get 3 and the finished product I may try again.

    LOVING the beta, and its just a beta. lots more to come. i'm a gears nut and it hasnt disappointed me. the one game mode got old though.

    gamestop.ie were giving them away free for registering, dunno if they still are but thats where i got mine

    The game is basically finished. MS wanted to push it back to the end of the year. Epic have gone on record as saying that the game is ready to go gold now so it is probably as close to the finished product beta you are ever going to get. I'm loving it. Clocked in quite a few hours so far. I don't think I'll be able to give Gears 2 the same love as I once did when the beta is over

    Could you preorder it, get the code and then cancel your preorder?

    cheers all you lot for the help, although i guess without preordering its all pretty fruitless. I hate preordering games as you tend to get screwed on the price.

    just do what i am doing.
    pre order to get the code and then cancel (done it with Medal of Honor), mines was online but you can get the code instore (check stock first) with a £5 deposit.
    and i will be getting the game anyway, just not from Game.

    can anyone tell me if gears 3 plays more like gears 2 or gears 1?

    i was a huge gears1 player and was so dissapointed with gears 2, its so slow compared to the first.

    gears 1 but with gears 2 gametypes and some elements, shotguns are pretty much gears 1 but theyve made them harder to use with lancers being useful this time round, im a huge fan of 1 and gears 3 will cater you as it has me.

    The speed is for sure more gears 1 like. Plays a lot faster than gears 2.

    The lancer?? The hammerburst is overpowered imo, making it my weapon of choice, and at first the sawed-off seemed immense but one shot every 6 seconds is just not fast enough in the middle of a firefight so I stick with a gnasher =/

    And also, is it just me, or does anna seem to be a lot faster than the other gears?

    ah good to hear guys, even wall bouncing was rubbish on gears 2 whereas i could literally wall bounce thru any map on gears1 easily.

    how are shotguns harder to use now? o and why are lancers better? i dont like how powerful they r on gears 2.....i wish they had just made gears 2 and 3 like gears 1 but wwith quality graphics.

    the lancer is very weak compared to gears 2, but it has a bigger clip. The retro lancer has deadly power but the recoil means its hard to hit anything more than a few feet away.

    The gnasher is much more consistant although its not just a shotgun fest anymore like gears 1, and to some extent gears 2 was.

    Great job by Epic, if they can get more dedicated servers up that is, been hounding them.

    nice nice, what about sniper, gears1 sniper was quality gears 2 sniper was shocking imo

    Back to he good old days Headshots galore - BUT the maps are a lot smallers apart from thrashball so the sniper gets wasted somewhat. In old town its ok but theres so many builidngs that you can only really get people when they sneak their head around the corner, its useless in checkout (as there isnt a sniper, lol) and trenches is too shotgunny to use a sniper, but again, ive never seen one on the map either

    checkout has a sniper, it alternates with the digger launcher each round.

    lool, well geeky but i used to play hours every day of matches with only snipers as the weapons on gears 1 so glad its kinda going bk to how it was, i quite liked the ability to down ppl with the sniper aswell with an active....im really looking forward to it coming out in september, think my degree may suffer though!
