Taking us through his multiplayer hands on experience with Gears of War is OXM Nab Gil - a man who, to this day, is still quivering from the memory of it all. At least, that is his explanation for the shakes....
I payed off my pre-order of the GoW collector's edition today...november 12th cant come soon enough
I can not WAIT to show this to a couple of my Sony Fanboy friends... they WILL buy 360's after i show them the beauty of GOW
"that you feel incredibly lucky to be an Xbox 360 owner. This is the game you’re going to show off to friends, to Sony supporters, hell, even complete strangers on the street."
Hell yeah buya nothing like it. PS3 give up this Christmas, because this is going to sell 360's like it's for free!
let me play TheMART on the PS3 side here.
It's going to suck look at the lame gameplay it's just a pop and shoot game nothing really next gen here. Wow 8 players in multiplayer and the levels are so small it is so boring. I bet the reason why it can only play 8 at a time is that the 360 over heats if they try to push it anymore then that.
Why waste your time with a 360 when the PS3 is the way to go with R:FOM having 40 players and larger maps to play on. This game blows Blah blah blah.
See Mart it's not nice to come over to a topic that I have no intention of playing the game or getting a 360 myself. I did that just because like you, I want to be spitful and bash your game and console. Now I know everyone is going to bash what I just wrote and I don't really care. I wanted to make a point about how sad it is that The MART can come over to our side and just bash away about a console he doesn't want and games he doesn't even care to play.
Have fun with your game to the rest of the real Gamers and just so you know it looks sweet. I hope the PS3 gets great games like this when it's a year old as well. Well Later
It gives us an idiot to laugh at for a few minutes.
Now go on and leave us, go play your ps??? oh wait there is no ps3 yet is there?
Oh, and reguarding your avitar, thanks, we appreciate envy, but it's spelled XENOS not xenu, lol!!
You can play 40 player online with Resistance but i'm sure they'll scale back the models to look like Halo 1. There's no way you can show the graphical detail in Gears of War with more than 8 players. More players = less polygons.
Get a life dude. Whats up with you sony fan boyz hating theMart, because he proves that the 360 is a superior system?
There are a few differences in your story and mine. poster above, thanks for the support
First of, there is no 'your' and 'my' side on this website. This is news4GAMERS.com. Not newsfor360 or newsforps3.com.
Second, you have no idea. I had a PS2 but the DVD drive died after just a year and it's collecting dust, because Sony has a bad servicelevel. They let you pay big bucks and one may wait for months before it's returned. You'd be better off to buy a new one instead. Nice service. MS picks up a broken 360 within a day and deliver it repaired or a new one within one or two weeks for 2 years (overhere in Europe). Now that's service. That's why I am not so happy with Sony after that joke.
But well. If the PS2 would have lived up to Ken's lies, I would be thinking a bit more positive maybe, but it got defeated on graphics by Dreamcast/XBOX. Emotion Engine anyone? The 'great' online system'? With the PS3 I see the lies over again, Cell strong spec's on paper, but for scientific use, not for games actually. 360 has the more optimal CPU for that. Cell = assymetric, 360 GPU is programmed symetrical. The GPU? PS3 spec's unknown? Nope, Sony just didn't put them out because on paper, they would loose from the 360 GPU.
And most important: the games. I have given my props for Resistance some time ago when I saw the first footage running. I said just plain out: this is looking really great guys!
But from that point on it dissapointed. It's just COD3+BF2 with some aliens added. For real. This time around PS3 just hasn't got the games to pay 600+ dollars for.
That's my opinion and this is yours. Fact is that multiple game reviewers say there is nothing like Gears of War. NOTHING. So it's fair to say this one will bring gamers to the system, even former PS fans.
So you may play me, I like it when you do that! Don't forget all the PS fanboys that came over to dish the 360 for having no 1080p (still not nescessary but it's nice to kill the PS fanboy stupidness) and the not needed BR push format of Sony (Betamax, Minidisc, UMD anyone?).
I will keep giving my opinion. Even when Sony freaking fanboys keep spamming me. I hope the others that like sarcasm will give me positive feedback so I get my bubble back. And if not, I'll just make my posts longer I guess with 3 or 4 bubbles. For real, they may do whatever they want I give my thoughts about things like I feel they are.
Gears will sell multiple systems, it'll kill any Resistance and PS fanboys will run over to the 360 demopods this Christmas!!!
Im having mixed reactions. I do think this game is going to be an amazing game but I think it could be ruined if you over hype it. The guns + chainsaw will be awsome and all the GORE!!!! But the third person thing idk they did it with G.R.A.W. and that game dident last to long in the top10 and that was a well known game! Im leaning toward call of duty3 over this game Just my oppinion though you can think what you want.
I love GRAW! I sold it cause I never liked 3rd person squad all that much, but then I bought it again and played multiplayer and I'm hooked!
see that's what I thought, but it isn't graw all over again. It's fast paced and mobile.
Just read the article
"Forget comparisons to the other squad-based games like Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six. Epic Games has given the warfare genre a much needed kick up the backside,"
"It may sound similar to the Ghost Recon set up, but in reality it’s a completely different beast. The two maps on offer were relatively small, but this actually improved the gameplay, as it meant teams were constantly jostling for the best positions, sliding round cover in the small courtyards to get a better firing angle on each other. There were no safe areas to hide until only the stragglers were left, and the better vantage points required a lot of guts to storm and successfully hold."
See graw was slow and uneventful for someone like me who came off Halo 2's online. Trust me I think it's over hyped a little but it's still a must have for me.
Every day there is something new with this game a preview and interview, images and its all fine and dandy but Its just making me want to play the game even more. This preview really says it all doesnt it I cannot wait for this Killer app.
that every previewer just creams their shorts when they play this game. Can't wait to play it.
