Here's something that I'm guessing none of you expected. Gears of War 3, Epic Games' trilogy-capping shooter that was released on September 20, now has an Xbox Live demo. The free download is only available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, offering a taste of the game by way of the early "Shipwreck" level.
I kinda feel like anyone who was going to play Gears 3 already has, what with it being the first marquee sequel released this holiday season. But hey, it's a kickass game and you should definitely play it if you haven't. The demo ought to convince anyone who might still be on the fence, though a BETTER demo would have been a single-map taste of Horde 2.0. Just saying.
Also, yes. This is a slow week for news.
