The lights are on
He's gone through hell, and come out the other side. Dominic Santiago steps into the spotlight in today's Gears of War 3 profile. Dom is the consummate wingman, having followed Marcus Fenix into the deepest holes and darkest places that the world of Sera has to offer. Along the way, he's been forced to face some dark moments, but none worse than the torture and death of his beloved wife, Maria. The months that have passed since then have been hard on the man, but he's no less willing to follow his friends into battle, in the hopes that he won't have to lose anyone else he loves. Click the image below to take a look at Santiago as we find him at the beginning of Gears of War 3.

Dom is so cool. His name is just unfortunate.
Dom has outshined Marcus. The most emotional moment in GoW 2 is when he lost his wife Maria. Dom looks more like a badass now, which should make for some great times come next April.
he looks like a mexican santa!
Two days after GoW2 release, I've yet to play it... my friend is having a conversation with someone who isn't into games 5 feet away from me.
"AND THEN DOM HAS TO SHOOT HIS WIFE IN THE FACE"
I look over at him... "Seriously dude? ...I hate you so much"
The scene in gears 2 was very moving. Hope he gets some vengence.
This will be one of the characters to really watch...
I remember really feeling for Dom. I'm sure people don't want spoilers here, but what he had to do, after all he's had to do was heartbreaking. Gears 3 shows him living with his decisions.. and boy, does he look grizzly.
I have always liked mentally unstable characters(such as Emile from Halo Reach)it makes them all the more aggressive
When he had to 'save' his wife in GOW2 was crazy. When he saw her in the true light it pretty much shocked me in a way a game hasn't done in a long time. That was a crazy twist in the game.
Dom is my favorite character in the game i feel like he has went through the worst out of all the gears having to kill his wife. but that is just my opinion
Poor, poor Dom. His son and daughter were killed on E-Day, and he had to end the life of the woman that he loved. What then is there to stop him from pulling a Tai and blowing his head off? He has nothing left to fight for, save his friendship with Marcus. He has no reason to fight, no reason to live. You can see how he calmly accepts death in the Ashes to Ashes trailer when the Grub nearly kills him.
Epic Games needs to redeem Dom and give him something to live for and a reason to keep fighting, and the solution is simple. Delta should rescue a group of Stranded in GoW3 that includes a few children. While sitting down looking at his picture of Maria, a boy or girl asks him why he has a picture of his or her mother. A quick DNA test by Jack shows that the child is of Dom and Maria, conceived on their last night together as husband and wife before she wandered off and become Stranded. The child somehow managed to escape when his or her mother was captured by the Locust, and now united with the child he did not know he had Dom has a real reason to live, to love, to fight and be the badass that we all know him to be.
You can kill Baird, you can almost get away with killing Cole, you can kill Dizzy and Jace (seriously, please kill Jace. He's lame) but you can't kill Marcus, Anya or Dom. Epic Games, redeem Dom!!
And does anyone else wonder if it's intentional that Baird looks exactly like Final Fantasy VII's Cid?
When I read what people say on their comments I am shocked to see so many people talking so badly about how this game's story line is trash. I don't think I've ever been more freaked out while watching a game scene than when Tai in Gears 2 blew his head off after being tortured by the Locust. I don't think I've ever felt more emotion while watching a game than when Dom took his life to save the rest if the squad in Gears 3. Dom is the man. Baird is good, Cole is good, but Dom is the ***. Excuse my language.
