I have not played the Gears Of War game, but I still found this to be funny. I can see why some people are a tad mad at you about this. It's just that in terms of what makes a good game, I honestly don't think character development should be that big a deal. It's a game, not a movie. Of course, movies based on video games are mostly bad anyway. The animation was as fantastic as ever.
I do think that it's less confusing when you name something Gears Of War plus the number. I like how the voice is so gruff and stupid sounding in this. I should have expected there to be a penis of some kind involved in this. Not that you're known for it, we're all known for it! This is the Internet, after all.
I keep staring at those round blue things on his chest...
I guess the whole marketing strategy for the game was based on overly manliness. Some guys get hard-ons for stuff like that.
Been a fan of your work for awhile. This video is no exception. You had a well-defined idea with a good joke in mind, and you certainly ran with it. The only issue I have is that you may have beaten it into the ground a little bit. That being said, great animation, and I love your sense of humor!
My 5 went to it after he said "big tires + loud engines = penis". Wish I could download it and show it off.
