BackgroundGears of War 3 is the spectacular conclusion to one of the most memorable and celebrated sagas in video games. Developed by Epic Games exclusively for Xbox 360, Gears of War 3 plunges you into a harrowing tale of hope, survival, and brotherhood.
In Gears of War 3, fight on as Marcus Fenix, the grizzled war hero and leader of Delta Squad. Eighteen months after the fall of the last human city, the war against the Locust rages on. Meanwhile, deep beneath the surface, a fearsome new threat is infecting the planet from within. With survivors scattered and civilization in ruins, time is running out for Marcus and his comrades as they fight to save the human race.

I realized that I haven't updated this blog in a while. Yes, I tell myself to constantly, but it never works out that way. So what exactly have I been up to at Neoseeker here with my fellow editorial? Stuff.
Today is September 20, and for many of us, that's synonymous with "Gears of War 3 Day." That's right, Gears of War 3 is out today, and in celebration, I shall repost our review of the game here, which actually went up last week on September 15, in the wee hours of the morning when few of you were actually awake to appreciate it.
Honorary mentions include the Fallout: New Vegas Lonesome Road DLC and phase one of the Diablo III beta. Congrats to anyone who got into that, by the way.
Additionally, we're still seeing about updating our front page layout, though there is no ETA on that yet, with everything that's been going on. What you may be interested to learn, however, is that we're working on putting together a staff page, where you can read about us and all that goodness. No guarantees on whether those photographs included will actually be of ourselves, though. Who knows, Wolfwood might put up a picture of a cat or something.
As for myself, I'm not yet sure what to include. We'll be submitting our bios by the end of the week.
Extra Hands on Deck
Backtracking a little, we were of course at E3 this year, as we have been for the past several years. This year, however, our attending team expanded to include PS3 reviewer Heath (kik36), plus camera guys David (DNA2251) and Rob (ThreeTwoFiveSix). Good guys to have behind the camera. Since June, David has also helped us with other events, like Call of Duty XP.
We're hoping that next year will allow us more room to grow as well, and perhaps push for an even stronger presence at conventions. Hell, maybe one day Neo will send us to PAX or gamescom.
Good gaming, all. Also, dig the headers. My blog posts, though rare, can be a tad long, so I'm borrowing organizational tools we use in our reviews: HEADERS.
If you actually want to better keep up with Neo goings-on, I recommend following boss man Redemption. Should you be the type to hang around Twitter or Facebook, we're on there too, under "Neoseeker." Our connection to the industry VeGiTAX2 also updates his blog way more than me, so check that out if you're curious about all his hardware adventurings.
