Of course I pre-ordered as well. I love this game. Yeah, Gears 2 had its issues (huge issues...multiplayer is a JOKE). But the Gears 3 Beta showed me that Epic fixed a big part of the problems. Dedicated servers were awesome. That sawed off double barreled shotgun is a bit overpowered (as is the retro lancer)...but I am not complaining. Oh man...I can't wait for Tuesday....and that means Monday at 11:59 PM.
