How can a game be good but also disappointing? Sometimes a game can be so good mechanically or story wise that you forget some of the missteps it took along the way, but sometimes those issues are just too much for some gamers to forgive. This is just a few games that sparked some controversy over the years, and to this day, some people cant decide if they like them or not.
L.A. Noire had some really awesome concepts. The game play consisted of having to interrogate people with clues you found at different crime scenes and reading their facial expressions. The tech behind the facial recognition was scary realistic, and the detective style game play was extremely entertaining. The problem with LA Noire was the story, and the dumb twists it took along the way. About half way through the game, a twist is introduced out of nowhere that made many gamers scratch their heads in disbelief. It felt as if there was a chunk of story that was simply missing or was cut for whatever reason. The conclusion of the story made little sense and the overall message ended up being lost due to the fact the main character didn’t even follow his own principles.

Yesterday there were rumors that Gears of War Judgement would ship with a download code for the original Gears of War. That rumor has now been confirmed, but pre-order bonuses have also been reveled.
- Players will receive the Hammerburst for multiplayer
- A Marcus Emergence Day skin for multiplayer.
- Some retailers will also receive an Anya skin for multiplayer
There have been a few other retailers who will be receiving other content. You can check out which retailers will get which content here. Also it is worth mentioning, if you pre-order Judgement from the Microsoft Store, you will get a free 1600 point card.
Gears of War Judgement rumored to include original Gears of War.
One of Microsoft’s most successful franchises, Gear of War, will be getting a new game this March. Gears of War Judgement will be hitting stores soon, but there is a rumor circulating that Judgement will ship with another game included. The rumor states that a download code for the original Gears of War will be included in the box.The rumor does make sense considering Judgement is a prequel to the original game, and that is a good way to get people to bite on the rest of the franchise.
Gears of War Judgement is being developed by People Can Fly, and places the player in the perspective of the fan favorite, Baird. Fans of the series can expect some cool new features, such as the Smart Spawn System, and will give players some insight on events that occurred before the original trilogy. A new multiplayer mode known as OverRun, will also introduce a class based multiplayer, a first for the franchise. Gears of War Judgement hits stores on March 19th, 2013 for the Xbox 360.
Gears of War 3 is easily one of the best games this generation.
It’s hard to believe that the first Gears of War came out almost 5 years ago. I remember first seeing the title, and being blown away. It was easily one of the most anticipated new franchises this generation. Gears of War 2 released two years later, and while an improvement from the original, but Gears 2 had some problems. Now it’s time for the final game of the trilogy, Gears of War 3. Epic again has made a lot of promises, and it is now time to see if Gears of War 3 lives up to the hype.
