Leviathan and Gears of War
« on: October 10, 2011, 08:35:33 AM »

Hey, guys. I'm not sure about this, but there are at least some similarities between Leviathan and Gears of War (a trilogy video game series) I began to notice.

http://gearsofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Locust_Horde
The Locust Horde look a little bit similar to the Darwinist, because these underground aliens use biological warfare. Almost all of their machines are living things. The Humans (or COG) doesn't have any bio-animals, but they have machines. But their machines are not really as good as the Clankers.

Compare that to the bats from Leviathan.

The ending of Gears of War 3 has some similarities of Goliath, but not all. It was over with cliffhanger note of what will happen now. There is no kissing in the Gears ending, just a character holding the main character's hand as they watch the sun set in the beach.

Don't persecute me, this is just a feeling of the similarities.

Guess I'm the only one who knows video games.

Anyway, this where my favorite brother characters: The Carmines, are. Each died from GOW 1 and 2, but the oldest survive.

I am a HUGE fan of Gears of War and i see many many similarities in the two.but they are unique in there own ways i mean the difference between a air gun and a machinegun/chainsaw![
