Personally I'm happy it's been delayed that way they have more time to make the multiplayer actually work. It was so awful on GOW 2 it took forever to find a game.

Saw that sroey, and I believe I did something known as sqee-ing at certain parts.

The finishing moves look so badass (hello, flame finish, and beat-you-to-death-with-your-own-arm finish), and the whole thing really looks like it's wokring the game engine (Unreal, right?) to breaking point. It looks so damn beautiful.

There is one guaranteed way to gain access to the highly sought after Gears of War 3 beta which is expected to kick off early next year. All you'll need is about $60 worth of disposable income.
Electronic Arts has announced that anyone who pre-orders Bulletstorm: Epic Edition, exclusive to Xbox 360, will get to play in the Gears of War 3 demo. Purchasing the standard edition of Bulletstorm for PS3 or the PC will not gain you cross-platform players access. Bulletstorm hits stores on February 22, 2011.

Some questions have arisen in the gaming community since this news first was announced on Friday. Epic Games have addressed the most common which I am sharing right here.

First, for now the only places you can pre-order the Epic Edition of Bulletstorm is at Gamestop and Amazon.com. In the UK, Amazon's UK site is the only option. Additional retailers could be added but there is no guarantee.

If you can only find the standard edition of Bulletstorm at Amazon (as it is currently labeled) or Gamestop, don't worry. Any pre-order of the standard edition for Xbox 360 will automatically upgrade the to Epic Edition when it ships

Wait? For the beta, or is that a release date?

Dear God, let it be the release date.

Got my exclusive early beta access today, not sure when it starts but all I know is it starts before the masses get regular beta access.

I've really fallen out of love with games recently, my PS3 never gets used (nothing new there though ) and my Xbox is getting neglected (with Kinect being like the abused step child locked in the cupboard under the stairs). So I'm hoping the beta for this, and the full releases of Crysis 2 and Portal 2 renew my interest, otherwise I am getting to the point where I'm questioning whether I should bother buying another Xbox LIVE subscription.

This is the only thing i'm keeping my xbox for i think.

I rented star ward unleashed2 and completed it quickly, on hard too. No other games seem to appeal and playing COD or Halo online has lost it's appeal. I think..... i think i'm growing up.....

I don't think it's growing up, although it could be and I'm suffering from the same affliction also.

Nothing holds my interest and when I do start a game I think I'll be interested in I'll start then pause and do something else. Then never go on the game again.

For me I think this current generation has hit a bit of a lull, or a plateau where the games are now all too samey and uninspiring. Portal 2 will be my only real must have purchase, then we'll see. If the next Xbox came out soon I think my interest would be renewed, but something's got to change. Sequel after sequel after sequel, is getting dull, I know most of the best games are sequels, but they were never produced yearly, and that's the killer. CoD is killing gaming for me because almost everyone I used to play online with now plays it and nothing else and I couldn't care less about it.

I actually find myself playing and preferring the more quirky or casual games my iPhone has to offer than my Xbox does at the moment. I can buy something for 59p, £1.49, £2.99 and it'll hold more interest than a £40 game for the 360 and I think that says a lot.

I'm looking to buy an iPad 2 now and although it's main purpose won't be games, I can see it being my main gaming platform for the foreseeable future.

Playing dross like that will certainly make gaming lose it's appeal.

As for Gears 3, we'd be getting it soon if they hadn't pissed about to get a winter release

Been trying to play the beta for the last few days.

When i downloaded it a couple of days ago it was only 88.51mb, but then when you run it you get about a 1gb title updates and I couldn't be bothered waiting.

Now trying to play it this morning and I'm struggling to find players. Going off the figures it gives you, theres only about 500 people with access currently (it's not the public beta yet) and I'm struggling to get a game.

The new menu and preference system is nice though.

If I pre-order from Game, do I get the beta now? or do I have to wait until next week with that one?

Closed VIP beta started last Monday, this Monday the Bulletstrom owners get access and a week on Monday pre-order people get Beta access.

I started off quite terribly but I'm starting to enjoy it now, really decent game once you get used to it, some of the new levels are fantastic, shame about the new weapons though, I'm less impressed about those.

The old town and the checkout level are great, the Sports arena is good, but a bit too open for my liking.

Is the beta just TDM then? Don't suppose there's a chance to try out Horde? Or Beast even?

Had a blast on the beta last night and was actually very impressed!

It was fast and smooth with no lag or connection problems.

Only problem were the bloody shotguns! Still crazily overpowered - at times it was just a mental shotgun fest. Still it was good fun - more so than previous Gears MP - as I never really got into them before.

Oh and the new interface is much more pleasing on the eye and informative. Good stuff

Yes you did borstal

Just load up Bulletstorm - you will notified about an update for the game - then at the Bulletstorm menu there should be a Gears of War 3 Beta option. Click that and you will be prompted to download a larger update - about 500MB.

And you are away!

Sroey - I noticed the shotgun issue too, I tried to fight back but soon realised that I'm shit with the Shotgun. I soon found out however that the Lancer seems improved and I was downing and killing enemies with my Lancer before I was in the shotguns range. Ended up going on a run of about 9 kills and 0 deaths which is a record for me on Gears.

What did you make of the levels? The old Mexican style town seemed best to me.

SHP - I found the lancer was actually very effective at long range but I'm useless with the shotgun up close - I think I panic a bit and become a bit jittery.

Mexican town level? Hmm must be missing something as I only cycled through the checkout level and the thrashball one...

Really liked the thrashball one.

Borstal - You make me laugh bud

Trade it back maybe?

I'm rather enjoying the beta. Never really got into the MP of the first two games with exception to Horde mode of course. Was it ever this good?

Especially like the three different assault rifles that accommodate for close/mid/long range combat. Especially like the bayonet on the retro lancer, Gears has been crying out for a charge attack like that though the regular chainsaw never gets old.  

Also like keeping the double barrel shotgun handy as an insurance policy for those players that try to rush you. What a mess...

So, how does my beta code work then? Do I just enter the code and an option to download the beta appears?

That's pretty cool.

I should have at least 100 hours of Gears-ness saved up. Hell, on Horde alone.

How's everyone enjoying the beta anyway. Fucking digger launcher is a pain in the hole.
