Watch: Aoife swats some Locusts for the first time in Gears of War

It's another episode of Late to the Party.

Gears of War, as a series, has just never appealed to me. Nothing personal Marcus Fenix, but although I can totally get behind a gun that can also be used to fell a tree, I just always thought those games looked kind of...grey. But hey, different strokes for different folks and all, and I do recognise and respect that the first Gears of War game was, for its time, a highly-polished cover-based shooter.

Johnny was probably the last person I'd expect to have fond memories of the original game, to be honest, but he was very keen to take me though it for an episode of Late to the Party. I made my feelings about it perfectly clear, and then begrudgingly acquiesced. So whatever happened afterwards is all his fault, is what I'm trying to say.
