    Liked your tough, macho action heroes?

    Tough because you now have to play as a strong, independent woman:

    There’s also a new PC exclusive turn based strategy game called Gears Tactics.

    The cut scene cinematic announcement trailer was pretty cringey and the shooting more of the same.

    ''It's not about you, it's about ME!'', at least they portray the new generation of women right, insufferable cunts that think they deserve to take the spot light no matter the cost.

    Nice, this will probably be the nail in the coffin for this fucking godawful series. Good riddance.

    You know what, I'm almost starting to think that this is a subtle, passive-aggressive way for the developers to torpedo a franchise they are fed up with.
