Gears of War

Some of my classmates in the Immersive Mediated Environments Master's Program at Indiana University at Bloomington have been asking whether or not it's a good idea to purchase an XBox 360. I say yes, and I can give you my reason in three words: "Gears of War."

My friend Rory and I have been waging a two-man genocide against the locust horde, sending whole legions of those foul beasts back into the abyss. And it's been bloody good fun.
