So, this Gears of War 3 is supposedly a big deal. In case you didn’t know, the beta recently ended. After a total of 1.29 million participants in 145 countries, 927 million kills, 23 billion bullets fired, and a span of 249 years of playtime (all according to Microsoft's stats), it’s safe to assume that it was pretty popular, right? I mean, I played the beta, and it was alright. I got a few hundred kills, earned some of the beta-only unlockables, and I might have giggled once or twice whenever I’d continuously beat an enemy to death with his own leg. But so what?
