Did You Know Gaming? takes a look at the Gears series.

Gears of War 4 is out tomorrow and what better way to spend your time than reminiscing over the previous three titles and the choice nuggets of information surrounding their development.

Did You Know Gaming? covers the early developments of the series, inspirations, and Easter eggs.

What’s more, it seems we have Joss Whedon to blame for Marcus Fenix’s troubles after he told Cliff Bleszinski that Buffy the Vampire slayer was at its best when Buffy suffered. Bleszinski realised this was true of Fenix’s story and doubled down on the torment.

There’s also a nice reminder about the Carmine Xbox avatar t-shirts that I totally forgot about. My avatar wore her Save Carmine t-shirt with pride and he was indeed spared – although you can take a look at the unused alternate ending that shows his rather hilarious demise.

Looking back, what are your favourite moments from the franchise? And will you be picking up Gears 4 tomorrow? Chime in below.
