Top 10 Heroic Sacrifices In Video Games
Tomb Raider and Gears of War: Judgment both came out these past few weeks and I have had no money to buy them. However, I did manage to save up to pre-order BioShock Infinite (I had an Amazon gift card to spend!), so that will be one new game I’ll be getting soon.
As for the other two games I had been anticipating, can anyone tell me (here or in a message): how are they?
Neither Microsoft or Epic Games have officially announced if this is the official box art, but evidence is pretty high that it is. This image appeared on NeoGAF (that is the European PEGI rating in the bottom left corner), and if you go on the Xbox.com page for Gears of War: Judgment the image on the upper left corner looks seemingly identical to the picture above.
A lot of people have not been happy with video game box arts lately for some of our favorite series (BioShock Infinite, anybody?). Might be a bit generic and prequels don’t always particularly pique my interest, but I adore Baird and I am glad he will have his chance to shine a bit more in the series. Every other character has had their moment!
Someone else posted this image in the NeoGAF thread as well. Has a lot more spirit to it, but I’m not sure where it is from - fan-made or special edition cover, perhaps? Either way, Epic Games should use it for something!
Gears of War: Judgment is releasing March 19 for Xbox 360.
Which image do you like better?

12:52 - Fable: The Journey is using Kinect. Looks fun - I wanna shoot fireballs at my enemies!
12:54 - I missed the guy’s name, but he’s right - Xbox does get the best games. ^^ (fans of other consoles, please don’t kill me!)
12:55 - GEARS OF WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks epic as usual…BAIRD! <3 But what happened to Marcus?
Well, comes up in 2013. Can’t wait to see where Gears of War: Judgment is going. That was way too vague and short!
12:56 - Nice dubstep! Some new racing game is being previewed, could it be…? Yep, Forza Horizon. October 23rd, 2012!
12:57 - Entertainment update! So, we can search shows by genre by fall using Kinect + Bing. 12 additional countries are being added as well, so more language variety!
12:59 - Welcome Nickelodeon, Paramount Movies, Machinima, and Videos (Spanish tv) to the Xbox family!
1:01 - Microsoft’s portfolio of sports is growing - NBA is being added with highlights and live games. And next season NHL is also being added. Replays, live games, whatever you want. ESPN is also getting an upgrade - 24/7 live programming events. Sports fans, I’m sure you’re all jizzing yourselves right now. Pardon my French. XD
1:03 - Live preview of all that was just said! I wish I liked sports so I could feel as excited as the crowd…
1:04 - MUSIC TIME! Xbox Music is going to have a huge library, not just for the Xbox, but for Microsoft PCs, phones, tablets, etc. And cue video preview…
1:05 - I do like that share option. I can stalk what my friends are listening to! ^^
1:06 - More announcements for Kinect. Looks like a fitness preview…
1:08 - “If you have a body, you’re an athlete.” I like that, Nike. They’re partnering with Xbox to make Kinect Training. If you want a hardcore exercise method, this is it.
So turns out…
The new installment in Epic’s billion-dollar franchise is Gears of War: Judgment. The July cover of Game Informer shows series mainstay Damon Baird shackled as the Locust hordes rage around him. Augustus “Cole Train” Cole, soldier and world-famous Thrashball player,will be on the second cover image in the same precarious situation.
I’m about to have a huge fan girl moment - I have a secret crush on Baird. ^^
Curious though…what happened to Marcus Phoenix? Guess we’ll find out in the next issue!
Thanks for the update, Game Informer.
