The chainsaw fight that takes place in the middle of the video isn't some fancy, man-gland-swelling shot aimed at winning your hearts and minds (and man-glands!). It's an addition to the game
How do you counter a chainsaw from the back? Unless you have in the middle of the fight, two gamers lock eyes, starts to run towards each other with the chainsaw, like you see in Massive war movies... So what do you have to do to gain the Edge? Tap a button faster? OR maybe a little knife comes out from the front of your boot and sticks it to the other...in the(?)
How do you counter a chainsaw attack from the back? you dont. Is a *chainsaw* going to sneak up on you.. really? Im intrigued by this idea. It could be a really great gameplay feature if the Locust overwhelm you, and you have to fight them off in a chainsaw duel.
I'm not liking this
It looks interesting.
It remind me of the sword battles you can have in Halo 3 At first they were amazing, but then people figured out how certain button combinations which would mean they always win the battle The chainsaw in Gears of War is an icon, but quite useless when all is said and done
I agree with toughName here. The beauty of the chainsaw was always killing a guy without him knowing you were coming. My best Gears game ever was when I was the last remaining guy on my team and I snuck up to every member of the other team and ripped their arses to pieces. You can't counter a chainsaw attack if he gets you from the back, and if it is a face to face confrontation I would probably switch to the shotgun before you even got close to me. I think most people would. If you see the guy coming you are going to take him out, not hope you win in a chainsaw competition. This will get old quick, and no one will bother using it. I hope they don't screw up the current weapons. Add some new maps and weapons, but don't screw anything up.
kinda is a good thing tho...game got stupid sometimes when someone would hide on a corner just to chainsaw people and you couldnt counter at all....at least this tosses a lil more skill into doing such things
Never saw that happen. If someone was hiding in a corner, and *10* people ran into him, then, its kinda stupid they didnt use their gun instead isnt it. The chainsaw rocked. you *could* ambush someone, or hide in cover.. which was cool. But no one could hold a single piece of cover for that long.
you could counter it by either shooting a random bullet into him when you hear the saw starting up or sometimes if your lucky you can stop them by hitting them (i have managed to do this with a shotgun and pistol)
Hopefully it isn't just a bunch of button mashing cause that could get pretty annoying, especially if you get into a chainsaw-chainsaw battle in the middle of the firefight where you can easily get picked off by members of the other team.
i like the idea, im just worried how it will be implemented into the game
They can pull if off...
Who Want chainsaw battles? Nobody, it's going be like the sword battle (halo 3), I really hate these games.
They just noticed this.
ill be fine with the chainsaw battle, although it can't just be a roll of dice thing, it ill be what people were whining about with the halo 3 melee or the COD4 stabbing being a one shot kill.
One thing is for sure, things will get a lot bloodier.
Out of every comment here, this one makes sense. Bubble for you.
and negative bubbles for the both of you! cheers!
i think itll be awesome. if 2 guys chainsaw at the same time itll be like that tug of war game on myspace. just keep button mashing for 2 seconds and whoever pressed it more times gets the kill.
I hope it doesn't come down to button mashing. That will get boring fast.
Sounds Interesting and could be a nice aspect of the game... if only they do it.. right.
IMO, this we'll make up close battles a lot better.
I like the idea, you got to add something new and this is something I wanted in the first one. I know its probably a glitch but if you ever happened to chainsaw each other at the same time it hilarious stuff.
Hahhah Gears? Wait until Guerilla -- the best developer evar -- releases Killzone 2! And Haze! ahahah and Resistance 2! Halo 1,2,3 and hahah! aint gonna matter. Gears of War 2? AH! No one liked that game.
Gears 1 sells over a million, wins awards, and one of the most anticipate sequels in 2008, and you come to the most fan boyish conclusion that no one will like gears2? Someone needs to cut the circulation of weed going around in your place of residents. Cause your statements are just ridiculous. Even the most die hard fan of Sony knows the power of Gears of War. Hell, they even want it to be for The PS3, and the excuse is(drum roll please) "the game would be far more superior on the ps3." Yeah, great reason. So, PS3 industrial strength extreme fans will try to find a game, could be coming out in six months, could be a whole year, or my personal favorite on the next Gen console. So, can you imagine what Jiinn would say if Sony announced Gears coming to Sony PS3. How quick his opinion of Gears of war would change?
This shall be a nice addition. How many times have you been doing well in a multi player game of Gears and people start chainsawing you, becuase they can not handle you. It gets irratating, becuase those chainsaws suck you in, but now you can counter the Chainsawer The Chainsawer has just become the Chaninsaweeee.
yea i knew it hahahaha told u so...look at my last post hell im right. I knew it...I need to calm down. deep breaths...I knew it ahah
I KNEW THEY WOULD PUT THIS IN!! Just by looking at the trailer posted a few days ago on N4G it was so obvious that Epic would put this in. Heres proof that I said it. http://n4g.com/RedirectToOb...
enjoy this web site, i really do how people fanboys on both sides say the most out right sh1t ever. both sides will agree with me. ;)
he's obviously a troll. Anyhow this is one ps3 owner that is jealous of this game, and this game alone.
action that is Gears of War. Feels like your dead smack in a Action Hollywood flick. For what it's worth, the story needs more detail, but you got Weapons/Chainsaw and you needs to dispose them ugly SOBs, Locust Hordes, it doesn't get better than that...Hahaha You are right in a sense, Gears is all about Tactical War and survival at every turn. Def not a Frag Fest like it's cousin UT3. Sucks you would never pay $50 online but you can get good deals out there for less. Breaking it down, it's about $4 and some change a month. -So if you don't drink 2 coffee's or Make your lunch, 1 day out of the "MONTH" instead of buying at work..etc, it's quite affordable.(I'm guessing you have a jaab) -Loose change whenever you buy something at the store could give you $4 a month. You can also get Free months from certain Promos and such to at least try some online multi-player games or just Gears. If you do, you'll get a sense why 4X4 and even 8X8 in some games bring out the best and strongest players as opposed to 32 player (close your eyes) and just shoot multi-player games. Not to knock those games but you get the point. With the top on hand, I would like to see how this will be implemented before I think it's super Rad. There were lots of things I didn't like about Chainsaw glitches.
No more unrealistic crap with one chainsaw user being able to take down the other when both had em revving, and hoping the game rolls the dice in their favor, that was so unrealistic. In the real world, they would clash and probably jam or something. The other thing they need to do is make the chainsaw clash with or cut through whatever other gun the opponents try to melee with, rather than them always lowering and screwing over the chainsaw, which is also pathetically unrealistic.
This could be a good idea as long as it doesn't go into a massive cutscene-esque battle each time, otherwise it will take too long
Anyone else that me that think Epic should make a Evil Dead game now, with all the chainsaw-stuff being shown around ? They could have bloody game play, a wisecracking "hero" and a game which cuts deeps into you ;)
I wish people would learn.. Do NOT F*** with Perfection.. They could add.. New Guns New Mele weapons New Levels Better Graphics Better physics New Characters Vehicles Longer Crazier single player 4 Player Coop Replay Theater But do NOT... F*** with the chainsaw
Yah Don't listen to Jinn he's a little off.
Now this is going to be very interesting.
Well all i got to say is ps3 fanboys that brag about those games are stupid 1st of all last time i checked they arent out yet so how could u say a game that isnt out yet is better than any particular game that is? 2nd of all if SONY is so good then why is it the only reason there system sells is for a blu-ray player. Proof for that is simple xbox 360 has 12 games that have sold over 2 million copies and ps3 has 4 2 of which are included in bundles when you BUY a PS3. Anyways its plain and simple all those games that are coming out could suck same with gears of war 2 ya it might look good but doesnt mean it plays good. When the game comes out and its good then open your mouth until then just shut up.
if you think about it, how in the world can two chainsaw chains actually battle each other. They would jam up or one would bounce off. Also, why would you want a chainsaw on a gun in the first place when you could just shoot the fuker? Adding a chainsaw to the tip of a weapon would just add to the weight to the gun and throw the aim off considerably. This is bad gun design no matter how you look at it. But then again, aliens are attacking from the ground so I guess logic doesn't matter.
It was a machine gun. The aim is less important when you are just firing wildly. It was also quicker to kill a guy with the chainsaw, than the machinegun. The shotgun on the other hand would beat both. My favourite part about Gears is how you spawn with two wicked weapons in multi-player.
You mean like Doom? How creative
It would be cool if they had some sixaxis action going on. lol Imagine actually moving the controller to kill a guy with the chainsaw, that would be pretty sweet. Especially in a battle like this.
about 7.3 i think it is maybe higher. thats alot. ps3 has a higher attach rate of blu ray movies than games init. allthough you must respect sony for including it. it is the main selling point of the system. it won the format war for them.
but lets focus more on 4 player splitscreen
The chainsaw is so fun to use :p, especially when you just taunt them for a few seconds then WRRROOMMM!
I'm pretty sure that if you tried to fight with chainsaws they would bounce off each other and injure those wielding them pretty badly.
