first i'd like to say that was probably the best story they've had, and the multiplayer's perfect. i did find a couple glitches in campaign but other than that it's excellent. but i can't help but ponder some of the things characters have said and some of the observastions made... here's my list of questions/thoughts that i deemed note-worthy throughout the series (granted i never read any of the books so there may be answers here that i didn't know about.). 1: how did mirra (queen) meet adam to begin with? they just bumb into each other on the street one day? 2: and what the hell is she? sure she's queen of the grubs, but she looks human and wasn't affected by the tower like the rest of the locust. 3: if she IS human (and i'm guessing she is) how did she come into power over the locust? they seem to shoot at everyone else. 4: how come there was moving blood in number two when cole killed a lambent that jumped for them? it just went right up the wall and left... they didn't really explain that. i know the immulsion is alive now but i didn't know it could just float away on it's own. plus that was the only time i we see it happen. soooo... what? 5: how were the cogs "misgiuded efforts at retaliation" so misgiuded? seemed pretty spot on to me. didn't drive us any closer to extinction at all. 6: dunno why the queen says we brought the war upon ourselfs either. cause we couldn't make a cure for you?... seems they started it when they just busted out and started shooting everyone. 7: and last but certainly not least. the f**k are the sires?... i have no idea where they come into the story at all. i thought gears 3 was gonna go somewhere with that, but they seemed to just sorta drop it. :/ anyway if your still reading this please answer if you can and leave your own thoughts.
