Lancer wielding Anya Stroud in new Gears of War 3 trailer

The new Gears of War 3 trailer features a kick ass female character actually holding a lancer and kicking bad dude ass with the squad. Does this mean we’ll get a female squad member? Cross everything ladies! Anya Stroud is of course a Gears of War veteran, though we don’t usually see her out in the field kicking ass and taking numbers, despite her being a Lieutenant in the COG Armed Forces. Here’s hoping she’s not rescinded back to the role of information officer and earpiece voice only.

    Wait… THAT’S ANYA? As in, ‘voice in your head telling you what to kill and to pick up some cookies on your way back to base’ Anya?!?!

    *mind blown*

    Unless there’s absolutely NO OTHER WOMEN in the COG army, her being there… doesn’t really make a lot of sense. Yeah, she was a ranked officer, but I figured that was because she was in Intelligence/some other non-combatant division of the military.

    Man, Anya now looks badass! I like it! Now she gets to play more of a major role in the storyline and game. But i wish that Anya wouldn’t be the only female though… maybe the other woman from the gears of war books.
    I also wish there was new melee weapons, like being able to pick up the butcher knife or have a two handed explosive mace similar to the maulers.

    If there is going to be a pendulum lancer in the game, does that mean that it’s going to pack more of a punch in trading off for the low recoil?

    Also, does the double barrel shotgun with an even shorter range mean that you’re going to have to get up to the locust’s faces every time for a one shot kill?

    Last note… If there is going to be a pendulum lancer and still keep the one with the chainsaw, does that mean there’s going to be a much more diverse arsenal of weapons available in gears?

    In the video the features of the pendulum lancer and the hammerbursts seems to have a tradeoff. Where the pendulum “kicks like a mule”, in the video the hammerbursts seems to have no recoil at all.

    The new tentacle things are completely random… they don’t resemble any familiar locust life form whatsoever.

    Just saying…
