Gears of War 2 was "bigger, better, and more badass." But what is Gears of War 3? "With Gears of War 3, we wanted to take the scale of the story down, make it personal," executive producer Rod Fergusson explains in a new "behind the scenes" video for the game.

"It's also very much a father-son story," design director Cliff Bleszinski adds. "I myself lost my dad when I was fifteen. Rod Fergusson lost his dad. So did Lee Perry. We are actually making this personal."

Bleszinski promises that the single player campaign is the longest Epic Games has ever produced, besting previous efforts like Jazz Jackrabbit 2. Why? Because there's a lot of ground to cover. "We wanted this story to have a conclusion," Fergusson notes. "We didn't want to have a cliffhanger."

      So, Epic considers this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAuz7HeiOFE raw emotional power to not be very personal? My god, after that tour de force I can only imagine what they have planned for #3! Bring your box o tissues for this one, bros!

        Dude, that scene was so fucking deep. I hope Marcus reunites with his dad in this and it's at least 90 times more deep than that.

        You know, I never even got that scene, because isn't she still alive? They're like, "only one way to solve the problem of a hungry woman. Shoot her in the FACE"

      Personally I'm thinking... and I really hate to be a hater but...

      WHATEVER! It's Gears of War! It's kiddy combat and adolescent drama with the gore and language cranked up to 11. It's everything a seasoned gamer rolls their eyes at.

      Gonna pre-order this on amazon soon. I love gears mainly because the controls and mechanics are so tight and fun. Really gears is a great game that gets a lot of shit it doesn't deserve.

      Omg Cliff Belzsinski is just like Madonna. Having lost a parent at a young age, his tortured soul is now inspired to make great art!
