Yes, yes, we've seen the Gears of War 2 meat shield. And the flame thrower, we've seen that. Pretty cool! But these new characters? Well, these are new. Details on the characters are super scant, but it looks like the game is finally getting a female character. (Well, more than Gears of War sole standard narrator/codec/briefing lady in one cutscene. Remember her? Nah, neither do we.)
