Full footage from today's GDC press conference display's Epic Games' next big sequel.
Why doesn't it tell us anything about Gears 2 >_<
AW I thought they were going to show gameplay footage since they had pics of it.
yeah, they might wanna get rollin on that if they're gonna have it out in november, i expected somethin sweet
Played the first one on PC, I enjoyed it. I'll play this as well then. :)
I'm sure they're already working on it... they just wanted to show the programmers what the engine does... its not a game players conference you know :)
love the animation. Hopefully they do a better job with the story this time. And I'd like a few instances where you face more than like four guys at a time. Just to switch things up a bit. Can't wait for this one. Hopefully MS allows my roommates "order" to go through on his 360 repair.
The first one had a story? I don't remember any story to it. I do agree though that the second needs more enemies at a time because I got kind of bored with the first especially since they basically all came straight at you. Graphically though it remains one of the best. Lets hope the second surpasses the original's graphics.
I guess, doesn't show anything at all, well except that it will be out in Nov '08, which is awesome. IMO, this will be the biggest game of '08, it will get the kind of coverage that H3 got, it will be everywhere.
I have a feeling this teaser tells us more than we think. 1. You hear Dom saying "if anything happens to me find maria." Could this be the story to this game, Dom gets killed or injured, and you have to find Maria, at least for part of the game, to tell her what happened. 2. Knowing Epic, instead of killing dom he'll probably be turned into some kind of locust soldier or something, like everyone expects the Locusts queen is not a locusts at all. That would be a sweet final boss, fighting dom after playing him in the first game. 3. The chainsaw. Maybe locusts can now block the chainsaw, instigating some kind of mini game like RE4 where you have to press the right buttons and you push them away and chainsaw them in the back. That would definately be sweet and intense if you can still die from other locusts while the minigame is taking place, like you have to do it as quick as possible to limit your chance of dying.
God, I hope not. <---Does not want Gears of War 2 Mountain Dew. But then you're probably just the kind of sucker to buy something like that.
Thats what they call a teaser!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes. Take Marketing 101, Section 1.5B: Leave them Wanting More.
This is marketing relax.
The biggest game of 08 is MGS 4. But I still cant wait for this game. Gears of war fist game i played on xbox 360.
I did toss it aside for 2 months and such...Ya know there are certain games you never forget when you first get a console. Gears of War was one of them, welcome to next-gen BAM!!!I remember Jet Set Radio:Future was the first game for my Original Xbox. Wish they bring that back.. I think the biggest games in 2008, will be MGS4 Gears of War 2 GTA4 Gears deadsmack in the middle of some stiff franchises, well SSB for wii, will be up there as well. I'll never forget this music, next-Gen started for me. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
While mgs 4 is cool it cant compete with gears it would get slaughtered in sales if it came out around the same time.
Yea I liked gears even though my friend liked it alot more than me. I just felt it had too many glitches but the graphics was still top notch.
I think my top games will be Mgs4, GTA4 and then GeoW and Resistance2.
MGS4 is a game that is liked in all reagions..NA/Euro/JAP? I just can't say the same for shooters, that is why I think, that game might appeal to a variety. GTA4 is one of those sandbox games that will sell no matter, looking at past sales. Unless your talking about NA only. We all know Japanese gamers are not going to jump for joy for Gears of War and GTA4.
Biggest games will be MGS4, GeoW 2, GTAIV, and SSBB(sold a million in Japan alone!).
I think you'll find that you will be correct.
GTAIV will probably sell the most, then madden and a couple other sports games, but Gears of War 2 will almost certainly out-sell MGS4.
You're going to be really surprised about how well Gears of War does. MGS4 is going to have a run for its money...
Man, i said i was not going to buy another xbox 360 but damn. I loved the first Gears! Ms had better put a stop to RROD. It got me once, so come Jun (Gaiden) or Nov everything hopefully will be in order. I will be pissed if i have to miss out on account of 360's still RROD.
Yeah Gears is the best of the 360. If it wasn't that single game I would gladly pack up my 360 and stick only to my PS3. But Gears is still the best next-gen game if you ask me. Great teaser. Reminds me of Sin City. But game play would have been nice.
Didn't show much but seeing Gears of War 2 come up at the end was nice. I'm so happy this game is coming out this year!
GEARS OF WAR 2 FTW !!!
cool teaser =)
...and that was a complete waste of my time.
still one of the biggest names in video game history
Oh, I agree. But the tech demo was far more interesting and worthwhile.
In the US, GTA 4 will be the biggest game, followed by GOW 2.
ah yeh, gow2 coming to virtual boy!
Biggest gaming year ever!
very very cool, going to have to buy xbox 360 for this :(
Can't wait for the PC version.
Damnit. Only a teaser trailer. Oh well. At least we know it is coming out in November.
Can't wait to blast some noob in the face with my overpowered shotgun or Fragtag some host. Good times
nice, cool video with my favorite colors. hope we get to see gameplay footage by E3 (which i don't doubt)
there was nothing there. it showed nothing of interest. how can you say that was "cool"? the only thing to come of that was the nov. '08 release.(and that could change) i didn't expect gameplay but couldn't they have shown 30 sec. of in game footage or a cutscene or something? i don't think that's too much to ask. and don't act like giggly school girls over nothing, which is exactly what that "trailer" was.
They gotta save something to show at E3 and x08.
Personally aside from the amazing graphics, Gears of War was alright... The single player game was good but I found the online portion was rather lacking. 8 player rambo style run around blood bath.... If I were a FPS newbie and had no skills then I would probably have played it more.
If it's anything like the first GOW, I'll play the story mode and return it for half of my money back after a few days.
You do realize the multiplayer in GeoW was tacked on at the last minute right? This isn't going to be the case this time, so multiplayer should be much, much better.
I'm a R6, Halo, Ghost Recon, COD, MGS, Killzone type of guy. Tactics/hand-eye cordination skills and online stats are what catch my interest. If GOW2 is more of a tactical game this time around then I'm all for it. But if it's the same run around, point and shoot type of game then I'll pass.
Hahaha.. This teaser was awesome, it didn't have to be gameplay footage. The sight/sound was enough....
BUT still no gameplay they could at least tell us something. I still think that this game wiill be an reincarnation of the last 1, with not much improvement.
I agree with this comment. It will be the same game, different maps.
Gears of War 2: Re-emergence Day (In Marcus Fenix tone) Time to pwn... Now we need someone to find a link to the tech demo
What a bad trailer...
It showed duel melee combat with a finishing move. Chainsaw wars on Live anyone?
Sounds gay if you ask me.
Going tohave to call Bullshit on the PS3 fanboys mentioning PS3 games in the 360 thread.
The highest selling MGS sold 7 million with the later ones doing worse. It took 10 years and 100 million PS2 owers to sell 7 million copies of the best selling MGS and the later ones did much worse.
lmaooooooo SHUT UPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP Gears sold 4.5 million OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG it outsold the WORST SELLING MGS game ever by 1 MILLION LMAO. Maybe because the PS2 had SOOOO MANY games by that time.
MGS 1 and 2 BOTH outsold Gears...just like MGS4 will outsell Gears
there are lots of games that dont show gameplay just look at kz2 we dont know much about the gameplay but this year the hot games are geow2 brawl gta4 too human fable 2 banjo kazoie mario cart wii mgs4 the new mega exclusive 360 title which i think is goldeneye resistance 2 good year i got a 360 and a wii and i will be getting a ps3 late this year
wrong last year the kz2 footage was real time, they played the game! by the way geow 2 is not even impressive.
Killzone 2 actual game footage has been out for months dude.
"geow 2 is not even impressive. "
That would be your opinion if you didnt know anything about videogames.
what a gay line, "...bare your teeth.."
I played GeoW, living in Britain, I am like the only person with a PlayStation 3. SO all my friends have loved GeoW, but I really have to admit I resent people calling it next-gen, and I hate the Unreal camp art direction (the same goes for UT III) and the general grey boring game play that goes with it.
It was, to most 360 fans an equivalent in quality of Heavenly Sword, there was literally nothing special about it. Just a plain simply fun game. I can definitely see the marketing playing a role in it's exaggerated hype. But Microsoft does deserve respect there. Very good advertising.
And before shoutign out GotY, wait for the year to be through, despite not owning a 360 notice me not contesting this view, and rather waitinf for it to be confirmed or not.
I thought gears was amazing but i guess everybody is entitled to his or her own opinion!
Finally Ms is starting to show some muscle and make some huge announcements! Gears 2 I have a feeling is about to make the PS3 look last gen once again lol!
What a strange theory.
Surely if this game was as next-gen as you say it is, then it would have revolutionised gaming. And I really don't see that. And also if that statement was true, then my comparison with Heavenly Sword, and equally good/mediocre game then that would have revolutionised gaming.
I don't know, but I think ti could have a ah rd time, making Playstaion 3 look last-gen, especially with the slurry of games that are coming for it. I won't discount it by any means though. The industry moves fast, and so do consumers. No doubt it will be a large financial success.
a human on 'roids can't overpower an alien. 8D
BTW they come from underground.
ironic, calling people dorks when i was kidding. you're the one sounding like a dork. Dork. i know a few aliens myself. your mom is one of em, got into my pants illegally. 8DD
oh come on, i can't believe people are excited over this. this is not considered a trailer. it doesn't show the environments or characters, just what he is going to be able to do with a chainsaw this time around.
about no gameplay footage, it will be interesting to see how epic improves the stop and pop dynamic since so many games use it now. i also felt the video was kinda "finish the fight"ish in terms of it just existing to make fans feel good. im excited about seeing more but everyone already knew GeOW2 was coming so no big shocker today unfortunately
No one "knew" anything.
And, we still havent really seen any gameplay footage except some tech-demonstrations.
There is *plenty* of time for them to market the game and release details. In due time, all in due time.
But, I suspect you're not really interested... I highly recommend you buy a Xbox 360 so you can play the vast library of great games and be ready for Gears of War 2, you dont want to miss out on what many expect to be Game of the Year 2008.
i dont have a 360 and haven't played GeOW? not once in my post did i sound demeaning or fanboyish. gears of war is a great franchise, i was just hoping that they would release something more than an artsy version of marcus fenix blabbering about killing the locusts. i think gears of war revolutionized the industry and i'm hoping geow2 ends up good so the genre can move past the current dynamics
goosebumps .... I CANT FRIKKIN WAIT! Gears 2 with a new way to chainsaw kill oh man crazy!!!
