With its acclaimed gameplay, intense characters, and visceral action, the Gears of War franchise has helped define the modern shooter genre. Written by Arthur Gies, Gears of War: Retrospective is a detailed look back the entire Gears franchise, from the first game’s initial development as an Xbox 360 title, all the way up to Gears 5. Learn the history of Gears through the words of its developers, designers, and artists, accompanied by key visuals, concept art, and more. Watch my video review of this book below to see what’s inside.
Gears of War: Aspho Fields is an in-depth look at Delta Squad’s toughest fighters—soldier’s soldier Marcus Fenix and rock-solid Dominic Santiago—and a detailed account of the pivotal battle of the Pendulum Wars. This novel is a prequel to the first Gears of War video game and a bridge between that game and Gears of War 2. I chose to listen to the audiobook, available on Downpour, narrated by Nan McNamara, the voice actor who portrays Anya Stroud in the Gears of War games. Below is my review of this book. Enjoy!
