[FLNK] (pronounced ‘Flank’) is the gaming group that I’m a part of. We have an ongoing 1,000+ email thread talking about anything and everything. From time to time, I’ll provide a few excerpts, using our gamertags to protect anonymity:
NightMystic: Apparently the second dlc for gears is called Raams Shadow and tells a prequel story before Gears 1
xceranwrapx: They don’t need that, because there are no plotholes or stones left unturned in the Gears franchise
TheWantonWonton: Yeah everything was wrapped up pretty neatly with the “kill only bad things” bomb. But a prequel offers a unique opportunity to expand the rich and varied history of the various bro squads of the Gears universe. Seems that it will also be an excuse to retcon a lady bro into the excessively masculine timeline.
- Takes place after Emergence Day, RAAM’s Shadow pits players in post-Emergence Day Sera “as Zeta Squad is enlisted to evacuate Ilima City and protect the citizens against a Locust Kryll storm,” taking on the titular General RAAM, as well as playing as him yourself. Get to play as the Zeta Squad aka the original Bro Squad. Michael Barrick from the Gears comics, Lt. Minh Young Kim from the first game, Tai Kaliso from the second and a new character named Alicia Valera. Another 250 Points of Achievements. Adds 4 Characters. Chocolate Weapon Set
TheWantonWonton: Ha, kryll. Fuck those things.
BaconboyG12: Sounds just about awful (so just about right). Raam was the stupidest name for a general since grievous.
RickJames18: First off…spoilers bro!!! I was eagerly awaiting the exciting Gears of Bore finale. Second…may I suggest Mareeeeuhhhhh?
TheWantonWonton: Sorry bro–i thought i was just stating the brobvious
TheWantonWonton: Every enemy in Gears had a stupid name, and the enemies in Star Wars get worse and worse.
