With Cliffy B gone, I’m afraid how the Gears of War franchise will end up. As a big fan of it I figured it was up to me to take care of it, so after the much anticipated prequel game coming next month, here’s my pitch for the opening to GEARS OF WAR 4. Written by me, Tobbii Karlsson. Listen up Epic Games.
Gears of War 4.
Marcus Fenix is fighting his way through the Locust horde, the Lancer Machinegun is frantically firing bullets into the pest before him, drenching his long pink dreads in their blackened blood. He chuckles out a snarky laughter as he pushes the chainsaw-blade from beneathe the gun down into the skull of a unknowing Boomer soldier. Out of nowhere he’s knocked to the side… A Berserker appeared before him.
“Get out of there!” yelled Baird as he slided down what once was a kindergarten’s exterior, now nothing but rubble. “I’ve got this one.”
Baird aimed his Hammer of Dawn as his silver-tipped mohawk swayed through the air, out of nowhere came a ray of light and blew the monsterious being to shreds. Marcus approached his friend, and but his arm around him. “Thanks Baird, I owe you one. Let’s have a cup of Earl Grey, okay?”
Q: What the hell was that Tobbii?
A: Well, we had a discussion on Skype me and another BD Writer about how videogame characters tend to have so boring hair-styles, and I wrote this… I’m not sure why. I don’t even know why I posted it, I guess I just found the image of Marcus Fenix in pink dreads funny.
