Soto was first introduced to Gears of War by his cousin when he was just 11 years old, falling in love with the game while watching him play GBs (GameBattles). Soto was fascinated by the fact there were no mini maps or cross hairs on the screen unless aiming his weapon. After his cousin issued him a challenge to beat him in a 1v1 in order to play the campaign, Soto went out and purchased an Xbox 360 controller without having a console of his own. It took Soto about two months to finally beat his cousin but it taught him that playing the best makes one better at the game.
