Gears of War 3 officially hit retailers’ shelves yesterday, and we got to attend Xbox Canada’s launch party for the game this weekend, in downtown Toronto. Unfortunately, we were missing a bit of our own… gear this time round, meaning we couldn’t record our usual audio input, thus leaving us in our own little predicament as to how to best cover the event. Well, what you’re about to see is the result of hours of debate, finally ending in capitulation. The event was loads of fun, with a horde of Gears fans and media alike, a wall of screens for multiplayer, hot “locust meat”, airbrush tattoos, a chance to play the game in stereoscopic 3D, chainsaw Gears woodwork and, well after we left, a performance by Tokyo Police Club. Check it out!
