Gears of War Wednesday: A few good COGs will turn this war around

Written by: / / No Comments

Times are tough, soldier. This is a dirty, desperate war and even though we’ve achieved much in a short space of time, and we must take pride in those achievements, there’s still more to do.

Unfortunately, we can’t dictate the terms of war and while it would be great to fight with the full might of the COG army, personnel are constantly being redeployed into areas that the higher-ups think will suit them better, which means we lose a few good COGs in the process.

Just this week, we’ve lost three soldiers because the top brass thought it would be a good idea to assign them to duties elsewhere in the field, fighting a war of a different kind.

While we fight in trenches, these three have been sent to the frontlines with fresh supplies for the troops we may have long forgotten, bringing renewed messages of hope to the brave men and women who have lost their way. Their mission is also one of recruitment, finding willing young bodies to join the cause and fight alongside us.

These three brave soldiers will also be selecting prize winners and packing videogames into envelopes to… wait a minute, that’s not in line with the fiction! Guess that’s my cue to drop the pretence.

Tonight, Lisa (Leeloo ZA), Wayne (Numphie) and myself (El33tOliver) will be making our final preparations for rAge 2012, which begins this Friday, but we’ll be heading up to Jo’burg very early tomorrow morning to get ready for the event. As a result, chances of making it to tonight’s Gears of War Wednesday sessions are slim, but if we get a chance, we’ll be there.
