Gears Tactics isn’t your typical turn-based strategy title. Sure, the game has some mechanical things in common with XCOM and other entries in the genre, but there aren’t many other tactics games that deliver this much blood, guts, and swagger. This is the kind of game where you gain extra turns by brutally executing enemies with your chainsaw-equipped Lancer Rifle. But hey, don't take it from me -- you can check out the game’s over-the-top launch trailer, below.
