Gears of War 3 Going OG With Some Ice-T?

Richard Walker

Original Gangsta and New Jack Hustler, Mr. Icington Tea, otherwise known as Ice-T has been answering questions on his UStream 'Ice TV', dropping a claim that he'll be performing voice-acting duties on Gears of War 3.

Who or what the rapper will be lending his smooth vocal tones to is unknown, as he was supposed to be keeping the information close to his chest it seems, as he quickly back-pedalled saying, "I didn't just say that," having blabbed his role in the upcoming game.

As ever until proper confirmation arrives, we'll chalk up Ice-T's claims as pure unfounded rumour for now, but then why would the man lie?

  • Cop Killer
  • Ice does love him some Gears. I think it could be cool. All I know is I want Gears 3 now.
  • Svu is amazing if it's true I'm pumped
  • Ice T + Cole train = Gears of War 3 Rap?? I think so lol
  • Body Count!
  • Gears 1 peaked too early, now its just going downhill. Why does every alien have to eventually turn into the flood?
  • probably playin Jace Stratton, the new cog guy with the cornrows
  • probably jace from the comics
  • Quality!! Tracey Marrow has an awesome voice!! Original Gears
  • Why not get someone like Tom Araya or Kerry King to do a voice? That'd be awesome.
  • He'll be playing his character from Law and Order :D
  • #10 Good idea.. it would sound something like the song 'Disorder' ps. I saw Slayer last wkend @ Manc Academy - FUCKING CLASS!!
  • they should get some serious actors to do the voice overs, not rappers/singers
  • #4, can Terry Tate rap?
  • Rap War's X D
  • Could be true if you check this out http://kotaku.com/5333091/ice-t-plays-call-of-duty-loses-stuff-demands-snapple-rings-cliffy-b
  • #10 you rule. Tom Araya's gravel road voice would be awesome to hear yelling while chainsawing a locust or lambent. I listen to Slayer while playing Gears 2 oddly enough.
  • I think if he is the new voice actor, he'll play that Jace Stratton that is the new rookie to Gears of War 3.
  • should be good if he is doing voice acting for a character. Like him on Law n Order. But if its for a rap song i say Nah !
  • http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/gears-of-war-3/showimg-5/ dis hasta be his character!
  • This game should be amazing when it comes out really really looking forward to it if you wanna play multiplayer with me add me ArmedBulldozer.
  • I was hoping for some OJ instead but this is good
  • They had better not change out the Cole Train or i'll be pissed !
  • "COG Killuuuuh!"
  • Yeah he's definitely playing Jace.
  • @6 why did the flood just rip off headcrabs?????!?? anyway gears 2 was epic and 3 looks to raise the bar even higher. Just hope the online will good from the outset and not take 6 TU's to work well
  • I have to agree with most others. Will probably be playing Jace. Still should be pretty nice though, looking forward to this game for sure. Been replaying Gears and Gears 2 to refresh my memory. Already got the 3rd in reserve =)
  • @12 I saw them on the 3rd in London: THEY PLAYED ALL OF SEASONS IN THE ABYSS! Pure awesomeness. @17 Same! Nothing like hearing Necrophobic (TEARING LIMB FROM LIMB!!) while chainsawing someone.
  • #28 quality mate!! seasons is one of my favourite albums of all time, ironicly enough so is Original Gangster!!
  • I'm just annoyed they went ahead to make a whole new playable character instead of giving us the opp to play as cole train :/ Glad to see anya is playable now
  • This just can't be bad. Iceberg delivers!)
  • He can't act. What makes you think he can even voice act. First Gears 3 was off to a horrible start with the new dumbass weapons. Now this?
  • @7,8,18,25,27 Definitely not Jace. My bet is on Anya. XD
  • maybe a black hoffman??
  • COP KILLA!
  • @ #30, Cole and Baird will both be playable in Gears 3 as well as 2 more unamed new characters. Marcus & Dom will have their own story and so will Cole & Baird, and both stories intertwine and connect at the game's end. All this was listed in the latest Game Informer.
  • Hang on a sec. Nolan North voiced Jace Stratton in Gears 2 when he popped up for a second.
  • it will be jace stratton from the comic i have a fealing he will be in it
  • ja probally
  • Ice-T = Jace
  • Word
  • I'd love Cole to get killed in this one.... I hate him!
  • #42: no wai!! :-P
  • GAY!!! It probably appeals to the 12 year old audience that think hip hop is cool.
  • 42 YOUR RACIST THEN AND 44 YOUR ARE INTO POP THEN OR THAT INDIE CRAP AN YES 12 YEAR OLDS ARE INTO HIP HOP COS IT TEACHES EM BAD SHIT LIKE CARRYING GUNZ AND PIMPIN,DRUG DEALING ETC BY THE WAY IM NOT 12 YRS OLDS AND I LIKE HIP HOP. ITS PEOPLE WHO DONNT UNDERSTAND HIP HOP SAYS ITS SHIT ETC AND ICE-T HAS HELP Made hip hop into wat is to day and is an okay actor by the way 2
  • #30 N00b... The second squad in GoW3 will let you play 4 other characters. 2 of them are Baird & Cole, those are the only ones said. The first squad is Marcus, Dom, Jace & Anya. #32, YOur a fucking idiot. How about you play the game before you start saying shit about the weapons that we know little about. Also, don't say he can't voice act if you never heard him. Get off the fucking internet if all your going to do is say shit.
  • Gives me memories , back at ps2 playing def jam fight for ny , can't wait for gears 3 , bfnn a fan since gears 1 never really liked gears 2 since my rank got reset twice, back at lvl 32 in 6 hours at triple xp, hope it has gears 1 controll with gears 2 graphics or better , and new weapons
  • Sorry for typing bfnn , meany to say been a fan, typing on an iPod touch is annoying, yes I do have a laptop and pc
  • X zibit would be cool to do voice in this game
  • Also are there any carmine left, since every gears ( I know there's only 2) carmine always dues and one of his brother replaces him
  • fail....
  • Just putting this out there...maybe... Ice-T will voice Cole Train's older brother? Maybe twice the train????? In all reality though, probably Jace. But I can hope, right?
  • Tom Araya for president!
  • The guy with the dreads from those screens I presume. That or Cole Train grew some hair.
  • What is it with Epic Games and their black guys...
  • Its definitely Jace.
  • lol really ice-t no one cares
  • @45 In what way am I racist? I didn't say I hope he dies 'cause he's black. I just find him annoying always shouting crap and that terrible rap! I had to mute the credits.
  • they should follow suit with the previous two games anthony carmine then benjamin carmine... ...and put a carl carmine in there or some other carmine beginning with the letter c...
  • they should get t pain to do a voice that would be hilarious
  • @44, Most 12 year olds don't listen to Ice-T, they only care about Lil Wayne & Eminem. They have no respect for old-school and probably don't even know that he raps. Kids these days only care about sex and drugs and partying and blah,blah,blah. They don't care about emotion, *I don't like this song because it makes sense, so instead I'm gonna listen to something which talks about pussy and guns* OT: Ice-T for the win, he's acting on SVU is amazing and I hope he uses some of that talent in this. Can't Wait
