Yeah... they smoothed everybody's skin out for Gears 3. I mean, Marcus and Baird have a little five o' clock shadow now, but Baird's acne scarring is gone and he looks undeniably different. I still can't decide if the difference in his face is for better or worse, but back in Gears 1-2 he definitely looked more like a long-time soldier.
I think all that time in the sun only improved everybody's complexion. That, or Delta squad found some alovera. :/
Marcus decided to start sharing his Cocoa Butter lotion.
I'm sorry, but I just don't like Karen Traviss. I don't like her work. Deal with it.
