Gears of Wars - HD video review

The guys over at gametrailers.com posted a HD video review of Gears of Wars. I was on the fence about purchasing this one until I watched this review. The graphics are unbelievable.

Don't get me wrong, those games are fun to play for a few minutes, but how about some high-res sweetness to put our equipment to use. Check out this HD video of the upcoming game Small Arms.
