Gears of War added to Games On Demand

Epic shooter available via the digi-shop

Just in case there are still a few 360 gamers yet to indulge in a bit of Locust annihilation, Microsoft has added Epic's TPS (third-person shooter) to its Games On Demand service. And if you've just got an Xbox 360 for Christmas (like this kid) that means you don't even have to leave your house to buy it.

Here's the company line:

A Nightmare from Below. A Hero from Within. The planet lies in ruin - cities crumbling, Man's greatest works fallen. Humanity is cornered, nowhere to run. The Locust Horde has risen, and they won't stop coming. They won't stop killing. The Coalition is desperate for soldiers. The sick, the wounded, the imprisoned are all that remain. An inmate named Marcus Fenix, once left to die, is now charged with keeping humanity alive. He can take comfort in but one fact: The human race isn't extinct. Yet.

"Take cover and return fire!" with the intuitive one - button cover system to blind fire, evade, flank, and ultimately destroy the nightmarish Locust Horde.

Here's the sequel (more of the same) in action.
