Yesterday we posted a giant guide to getting all of the unlockables in “Gears of War 3,” including weapon skins, playable characters, executions and mutators. One of the unlockable characters is Aaron Griffin, the head of an Imulsion pumping corporation who plays an important role in the “Gears of War 3″ campaign. More noteworthy is the fact that Aaron Griffin is voiced by actor/musician/life coach, Ice T.
Unlocking Griffin through the game is actually pretty tough, and would require playing hundreds of waves of Horde mode to earn the required cash for the onyx Big Money medal. Alternatively, there’s a way to unlock him in about 5 minutes, but it requires some social networking.
Head on over to the “Gears of War” Facebook page and hit Like. This will unlock the ability to access a code generator which will spew out a DLC code for Ice T/Griffin. Feel free to enter that code into Xbox.com now, and you’ll be able to play as Griffin in multiplayer the moment “Gears of War 3″ launches next Tuesday.
If you’re troubled about Liking corporate pages, you’re welcome to Unlike the page after you’ve gotten the code, but it doesn’t rule out the possibility that more unlocks will be made available on the page in the future. Then again, you could just head back and re-“Like” it in that eventuality.
