<em>Gears of War</em> thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind’s epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet.</p> <p>In this third-person tactical shooter, gamers live and breathe the role of Marcus Fenix. A disgraced former war hero, Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warrior fiends. Gamers immerse themselves in an experience so intensely emotional and gut-wrenching that playing will be like controlling a blockbuster action movie.</p>
The PC Gamer Holiday 2006 issue features a nine-page article about Windows Vista and Microsoft's recent push for PC gaming with its Games for Windows initiative. The article talks about Microsoft's plans for the near future, an interview with Peter Moore, but most interestingly, it features a photo of a Games for Windows promo kiosk (similar to the current PS3/Wii demo stations). The kiosk to promote PC games has a display with various titles on it, including Flight Sim X, Age of Empires III, Rise of Nations, ShadowRun, and Halo 2, but most importantly ... Gears of War, complete with a Games for Windows logo on the box cover.
