The lights are on
When fans first heard that the next Gears of War game was going to be a prequel, many assumed that players would tackle the locust hordes as a young Marcus Fenix or Dom. Epic Games and People Can Fly decided to throw gamers a curveball by having the next game in the series star the wise-cracking Damon Baird, a character that was in the original trilogy but never thrown into the spotlight. Watch the video to learn more about Baird, the decision to highlight him, and the story of Judgment from Cliff Bleszinski, Rod Fergusson, and creative director Adrien Chmielarz.

chicks dig the baird
Well don't care for Baird. But if the gameplays good and the stories Epic enough I'll be satisfied.
hey, I don't need convincing, baird is awesome.
I really like the mix of personalities in Kilo squad. Baird is the snarky yet smart arse, Cole brings his bravado (and with the potential to get to know him a bit more personally), Garron is fresh out of the 'bad guy' camp of the Pendulum Wars which gives him an opposing perspective as he is now working with those soldiers he used to kill, and Sofia is snooty with her by-the-book attitude. She is particularly interesting as she is keen on ratting out the squad's wild behaviour, and due to her minimal rank (and from a prestigious military academy too) one has to think that she's also in it for brownie points from a thankful superior.
Cuz Baird's awesome. Duh.
No explanation needed. I love Baird.
Give him the Baird
