Gears of War is an Unreal Tournament side story:

Remember how in Unreal Championship 2 the lore says that the Bio-Rifle fires tarydium sludge? Remember how in Championship 2 the sludge was alive?

Immulsion is just a shitload of tarydium all in one spot, possibly mixed with some other stuff, and with a baaaaad attitude.

The humans of Seras/Ceras/whatever are colonists from the main Unreal storyline who crashed on Seras a long time ago and lost their databases on much of the Unreal 'verses tech during their landing, hence they have laser satellites but forgot how to make long-range starships and FTL drives.

Further minor WMG: The Locust had no technological capability until the humans arrived and the two went to war, although they probably domesticated creatures like Brumaks before then.


I'm done.

I thought this was a foregone conclusion.

I also love your avatar. Highway to Hell indeed.

The COG lacks long-range spaceflight and no mention of the outside universe is ever made (yet), so the crashed-colony bit didn't come to me immediately.

I heard somewhere that they were part of a larger civilization but got cut off from them, and wound up Planetbound.

Musta been the books.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
