Why do we still care what day Hitler's birthday is, after more than half a century since his death? Over the course of history many awful leaders have been born; Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Zedong, Pol Pot, Bin Laden, Mussolini, Genghis Khan, Vlad III, and many, many more, if we were to put a black mark on all of those birthdays as well we'd be totally screwed, unable to celebrate half the days of the calendar year. So why single out Hitler's birthday as particularly awful?

On a more on topic note, this game needs to be a launch title for Xbox Series X later this year.



Hitler and my daughter have the same birthday.

I keep telling you that Marry Jane isn't your daughter (please get the joke).



I look forward to playing it on the Xbox when it gets ported over. Sadly, my PC needs upgrading in order to play it.

Judging from the gameplay videos, this genre suits the Gears universe pretty well.



Tempting. I love the genre, have some experience with Gears, and I'm still killing time waiting for FF7R. That price is hard to swallow though for a top-down tactics game on Steam, with so many other options available for much cheaper. The reviews are good, but they don't scream 'must-play right now regardless of price or anything else'. Reviews on Steam seem even more mixed.

Probably a wait-for-sale, unless you're a big fan of both the genre and series.

Well I watched ACG's review, and even though it was tepid he did recommed a buy. Guess I'll give this a go.

This does seem more geared (no pun intended) towards gamepass owners.

Agreed. Although I'd also question why people know when his birthday is in the firstplace? Like, why care about something like that?

Nice.....I know David Letterman's birthday too. Don't even have to look it up. Same with Hitler's.

So, I like The Simpsons, and there was an episode, about, 15-20 years ago where Homer was trying to remember Marge's birthday, and ran through a few other birthdays he did know, one being his friend Barney. Homer says to himself "Barney's is April 20th, same as Hitler".......I guess I care about it because it was a funny, off-hand remark from a character I liked.
