I've been debating on getting this for a little while now. All their shirts are buy one, get one 50% online.

I wanted the Beta Tester shirt so bad. I guess this is going to have to be good enough... but I still love it!

I got the shirt with the graffiti design from the recent E3 from here. The trick is bushy mustaches. No one recognizes you. Unless you've already got a bushy mustache, in which case you might need some other means of getting the shirt.

lol? tits? My goodness, my american slang must be off o.O

It's an okay looking shirt, but if people saw you wearing it, they'd probably be like "What school is that from?" I mean, as long as they don't look at you from the back.

I find it amazing that there is not yet a photoshop of Shang Tsung working the register at a Hot Topic in this thread. Graphics people are slacking.

Just tell them it's the Hanover Cougars and get on with your day.

Personally, I love having shirts that strangers don't immediately recognize. I have very little interest in being a walking billboard for Gap/A&F/etc.

I have more than a few gaming T-shirts myself. Gears of War is included in the collection.

I'll be adding this one to 3 others. :woop: I have the "Save Carmine" shirt, the OG Slick shirt from Hot Topic, and the "Go Commando" shirt from GameStop.

I got the OG Slick Gears shirt in Hot Topic, and I get a bunch of band tees from there. I'd say go for it.

This shirt is a great find. Hot Topic is for emo losers with wallet chains, but this shirt is awesome.

I bought a Gears of War 2 T-Shirt a while back and recently bought 2 Gears of War 3 T-Shirts, all from Hot Topic. I've gotten several other gaming shirts there. None of them were that shirt though... It does look pretty cool though, the back saves it, without that part, I wouldn't really like it.

I bought the OG Slick shirt and the GOW 3 shirt there and I still was the most normal person there so I'm sure you'll be fine purchasing it.

I get shirts at Hot Topic all the time.
I don't see the problem, really. They normally have a few really good Pink Floyd and Iron Maiden ones in stock.

At first I saw the shirt and was like "WTF does this have to do with Gears?"


Oooohhhh I see now. Pretty sweet shirt. I have a shirt from preordering the first Gears at BB a few years ago; it's just the omen sign on a black shirt.

Oh, that's cool too but I don't think it has COLE 83 on the back.

I bought a Dragon Age Origins shirt from Hot Topic a couple years back, I fill the hollow space left behind with beer and all is right with the world. :drunk

You have a soul?

Sadly, HT sells pretty cool shirts. But they make them in NO larger than an XL. Which is gay.

baring in mind there's 99.9% chance there's no such thing, probably not ;) =P

It's with the people that frequent their stores.

I got my Gears 3 hoodie from there and have received nothing but compliments wearing it at gaming events.

Own it, wore it yesterday, it is now my favorite shirt.
Wife is getting annoyed with Gears 3 spending (currently at 3 shirts, one hat and the Console Edition). Must not tell her about Season Pass...

This. Because....

This shirt is a great find. Hot Topic is for emo losers with wallet chains, but this shirt is awesome.

Cliched, bullshit like the topic title and this reply are already well over 10 years old. It's a store. A store that sometimes sells cool gaming related shit. Who cares who elses shops there? Or what they look like? Or who they specifically cater to?

Buy from them, or don't. But for shit's sake. Stop with the "Hot Topic Eats Babies" bullshit. They don't. And the jokes were never that funny to begin with.

This t-shirt is much better....

http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Apparel/TShirts/Graphic/Gears-Of-War-3-Born-2-Saw-TShirt-194807.jsp

Uhhh, not really, no. In fact, that shirt is fucking terrible. And the shirt that created this thread, is definitely not "the tits".

Nothing beats the E3 design that OG Slick did. Didn't care for the orange that Hot Topic ended up with. Much prefered the red. But it's still better looking than either of these shirts.
