As is often the case with video game news, a sharp-eyed forum-goer brings us this story. Over at NeoGAF, a poster with the latest issue of Game Informer has been relating some of the Gears 2 info contained within.
gears 2 will rock your world
Why are you here then?
just create huge enviroments and more people in there.
Halo 3: 8 vs. 8 Multiplayer.
Frontlines: Fuel of War: 50 vs. 50 Multiplayer.
Huxley: 60 vs. 60 (100 vs. 100 possibly) Multiplayer.
The point is that different games want different experiences. Just putting more people in the game is not the point.
There is all manner of Massive Multiplayer videogames here or coming exclusively for Xbox 360.
Damn the man in the cowboy hat looks real badass. Do I see new type of enemies?:D YES I DO:D Plus that girl looks cute as well:P
Ha, I thought the same thing. The dude in the cap looks like he enjoys a cigar and a shot of whiskey. My kind o' badass.
Sounds like it's just going to be 2 player co-op again, I was personally hoping for more, at least 4, so that's kind of disappointing as me and my bro's are big co-op fans.
Other than that, sounds good, 100's of emery AI will be cool as long as they can keep them all intelligent at the same time as the tech demo showed nothing more than simple clones following a set routine, hell you can have over 50 bots on UT3 (PC) so I cant see why not.
Roll on November...
If you disagree, please state why? Oh that's right, your not allowed to be critical when its Gears are you.... Even when its your own personal opinion...
Just ignore it. People always do that, leave disagree and not state why. You said it was a disappointment for you not everyone else, nothing wrong with that. But it is not just Gears that people do this too. Youill get about 15 to 20 disagree for stating an unbiased opinion about MGS4, KZ2, etc so it goes both ways. I have not heard anything definitive on the number of co-op. Yes I hop the AI is intellignet which I am sure they will be.
BTW I did not give you a disagree.
Show us in-game graphics...dats what everyone wants to see.... need to see this best graphics ever..in action.....lol...
GDC 08 tech demo, it's labeled as Gears of War 2 gameplay footage on the Xbox Live marketplace and over at Gametrailers. We seen it, you seen it here on N4G, and probably drooled over it over at GT. Nice try Danja, but you probably should have stayed in bed this mourning, because that jealousy is making you sick and you don't look so good :)
http://www.gametrailers.com... thats your special little link.
I know that hurt Danja.
keep thinking they said otherwise.. hey I'm sure Alan Wake is going to release footage soon as well. @ Danja, Cant do 16 players. They said they are doing 5 vs 5. Epic. So much powah.
lol...ur now bragging about a Tech demo...dude...wow they have better water effects ..what esle is there to be proud of in that Tech demo..? Not to mention Uncharted still has better water effects..than what was show in that silly demo ..of that outdated engine.. look at the mindless A.I's running into the more than visible wall...and the graphics looks the same.... RFOM2 is what you call a true sequel when everything improves..Graphics & Gameplay....60 player online...lag free......can Gears even manage 16 players...?...lol
Blademask, it was "only" Mark Rein who said anything, and it was taken out of context. Google it :) <---
Nice try though, now excuse me I'm going to do a "you" and troll some PS3 news :)
Get a life, man. What's the point of raining on their parade? Who cares if Uncharted does have better water effects? Whuppidy-do-da. Do you sit and stare at them all day?
I played and beat uncharted and the storyline was mediocre at best. RFoM killed it in that aspect. Nor did I really care for the graphics. The foliage looked really cheesy for all of the hype. Not to mention it was a ten hour game with no multiplayer--which Gears has.
I for one would love for Gears to be on the PS3; it's a great game. Cheers to the XBOX owners for Gears 2. It will be great, despite what trolling fanboys say.
#1.1, Not if you have anything to do with it< Gotchaaa...
#3 lol, That was a demonstration and should be taken at face value vs how the knew tech that was just roughly demonstrated will be implemented in the real game. Friggin Sony fanboys.
That why i called it a tech demo, or did you miss that?
Oh, and "Friggin Sony fanboys." the only fanboy here is you, I own a 360, PS3, PSP, DS, Wii, PC, Iphone etc
I own everything, so grow up and leave me out of your childish game of name calling you prepubescent idiot.
At least you know where your rubbish belongs, in the open zone... or where you banned from the gamer zone... I wonder....
Looks like we already have PS3 trolls guarding this 360 thread patrolling it. Well I thought at least this time 360 fans could enjoy atleast one thread without being outnumbered by PS3 fan trolls in a 360 thread. lol
3 dis-agrees in 3 minutes...classic.....LOL maybe if you stop making such ignorant comments...and labelling everyone who doesn't say something pro- 360 Sony Fanboy's..you wouldn't be targeted..but then again...you've only become worst each day with ur fanboi comments...MART EDIT:@ Jason 360 Funny Mark Rein stated that UT3 on PS3 looks better than Gears...but you can keep living in denial...you can know when a console is outdated when a 1st generation game is still considered it's best looking game...lol
It's just jealousy POG, the first Gears set the bar for next gen gaming in terms of graphics and gameplay, and has still to be dethroned. Even Epics own UT3 couldn't take it, so with the 360 "still" being the powerhouse in all things graphics, it's only natrual for them to whine and cry like babies.
Look there's one NOW!.
What do you wan't from me?, write Epic and ask them to implement the AI and ask if they can have them all(Locust) fighting eachother in a real combat scenario in their next tech demo lol..
What wrong with saying a PS3 fanboy would never appreciate a 360 AAA for what it is without major bias?.
1. Mass Effect says HI. 2. COD4 Says Hi. 3. Halo3 says HI 4. UT3 says HI(we can have more than 8 people playing multiplayer, and look better!) 5. Assassins Creed says Hi 6. Bioshock says Y hullo thar 7. Hl2-Orange Box says Hi I'm over 30 years old and I still kicked the hell out of gears visuals as well as gameplay. and to top it all off Uncharted says 'Hi, Gametrailers just called me the best looking console game out.'
danja shut ur mouth +) no 1 cares what u have to say go play with ur fandriod friends in the park kid
"Funny Mark Rein stated that UT3 on PS3 looks better than Gears...but you can keep living in denial..." Where was that stated at??
lmao. UT3 is sh1t compared to Gears ONE, in both graphics and gameplay. Just wait for Gears 2, you pathetic n00bs.
So, i'm just gonna be blunt and say that I hope you 360 owners get a kick out of this game, because I had an absolute blast when I played Gears of War when I owned an XBox 360.
u will see a gameplay between July to November
E3 would be my bet.
Till then just watch the GDC tech demo.
I wouldn't recommend a PC tech demo as your guide for 360 Gears 2 gameplay.
Wait for something "real".
side note, this thread has turned to cr*p, some people on this site a complete joke.
Its FOOTAGE of GEARS OF WAR 2! Oddly enough that would be a huge story. If it was true. the GDC Unreal Engine Tech demo is what the crew at Epic said it was, and STILL says it is on their site. Regardless of what PR spin they are putting onto it on XBL, no one has seen Gears 2 footage with Gears 2 assets running around a Gears 2 level. Gears 2 is going to be great, if they improve the advantage the host gets in multiplayer.. The hype is going to be greater than anything.. there is really nothing else to hype for the lineup at the scale of Gears2. @ Jason, you are a complete.... GDC 2008: Unreal Tech Demo Direct-Feed From the page you just sent me. Check out the impressive features of the updated Unreal Engine 3 via an on-stage demonstration. Unreal Engine 3 technology that was showcased at the Microsoft keynote address earlier today. This included an impressive facial animation demo featuring an excitable bald-headed character with highly expressive features, as well as the "fracture" demo running in Epic's editing tools in a level surreptitiously named "Gears of War 2." However, Epic vice president Mark Rein quickly pointed out that "none of these demos are Gears of War 2, [Epic is] not showing that." Seriously? Are you tired or something? Where is the Out of Context link to Mark Rein correcting himself? or Epic.
this game will own but for this year GTA IV will win
this isn't 2006..ne more... MGS4 RFOM2 possibly KZ2 all direct competition...and better games.....GeOW2 will be just marginally better in graphics..I doubt it will even look better than Uncharted.. RFOM2..is looking to own GeOW2....
i own a 360 and gta 4 is going to bee goty belive me gears of war 2,too human,fable 2,ng2,fallout 3, will be great contenders rfom series is over hyped by sony drios insomniac dont make the type of aaa game i like.
"MGS4 RFOM2 possibly KZ2 all direct competition...and better games....." Yes... since you know how they all play and look. You probably haven't even played Gears 1 have you? "RFOM2..is looking to own GeOW2...." Nice.. nice way to contradict yourself..
I want blind fire while swat rolling, and an energy weapon.
i just wanna kill more locust and enjoy the online :)
If your not a 360 owner or not interested in Gears 2, get out of the thread. For people who love their 360, lighten up, everyone is allowed their own opinion and to be critical, stop taking everything as though its some personal attack on you.
We're talking computer games... get a grip.
Anyway, I was looking forward to some new info and a nice discussion, seems thats to much for some so I'm out, before you taint this game anymore.
I dont know why they're whining so much ! They dont care about 360 and dont care about Geow 2 ( they said they prefer Res 2 or KZ2 LOL ).
Either they got nothing to do (or play) or maybe ... I dont know.
I personnaly dont troll ps3 news all day long ( I only troll on Haze brecause I hate it lol ...looks so boring ! )
It would be cool to reserve in some way some threads to 360 gamers exclusively so we can discuss in an intelligent manner and in "peace".PS3 gamers dont need something like that since 80% of this site is composed of sony fans (not being biased its only a constat ).Sometimes its fun to be the hated minority but sometimes it just gets boriiiing.
Anyway 360 gamers are in for a treat once again with Geow 2.
What a ridiculous reply, you start by bashing PS3 fans for troll 360 threads then go on to say... "I only troll on Haze because I hate it lol ...looks so boring ! "
Do you not realize how hypocritical that is? Probably not.
i feel bad 4 those who love that trash oh my bad the 360
"The most memorable of these new additions may be Tai, a spiritual and meditative warrior from a tradition of honor-bound fighters."
Is that really what we want?
Everyone is hyped for gears. Everyone wants gears... You are just spreading bullshit on the site about Gears 2 tech demo. There is no such thing. The creators have said its not Gears 2. Gamtrailers even calls it: GDC 2008: Unreal Tech Demo Direct-Feed Mar 25, 2008 Check out the impressive features of the updated Unreal Engine 3 via an on-stage demonstration. No one has seen Gears 2 in action. You are just annoying.
You did not read one comment of mine did you-U ignorant fan fuc. lol.
GTFO you've been saying that same sh8t from day one no one cares about what spin you spew it just doesn't matter the game was announced and now there's new info. I responded to the PS3 fanboy taking jabbs at the Tech demo.
Pat yourself on the back for figuring out That they added improvments to the GOW engine that will be in the GOW2 engine.
Who's spreading BULLSHIT moron?, You didn't see meeeeee saying what I seen on XBL was an earily build of GOW2 . lol Why are you so fanatically anti GeOw?.
EDIT: Reply you stupid mutha fuka I dare you!, point it out for me.
EDIT 2: wAtdaFck... That truth doesn't need to be told to me did you even read any of my posts or is your trolling rabid ass acting stupid to have an excuse to attack me?. lol
That Tech Demo had demonstrated impressive physics, destructable evironments and group gameplay. Its a work in progress too...
Only ignorant anti MSFT fanatics find ways of bashing improvments. He's telling the truth to a person that said no such thing to be corrected.
#6.3, U stupidddddd... 4real...
you of all person shouldn't be calling ppl ignorant.. ur the most ignored person on the site....combing ur account + that of the Mart...since you guys are the same person... EDIT: LOL @ POG...dude is it ur time of the month ?? why be so sensitive..to someone's else opinions...aww ur 360 broke again...poor thing... EDIT2: @ WatdaFck - I think we all know who dis-agreed with yah....that ignorant Fanboy called POG ....lol
Stop overreacting He's telling the truth. Its Gears of War 1 showing off what the Unreal Engine can do with its new lighting. He's not anti-GeoW, because he didn't say he was. Stop being an ignorant XBOT.
"There is no such thing. The creators have said its not Gears 2." You are right, however, what makes you think that they wont implement everything in the tech demo, plus more, into Gears of War 2?
Thats how I know for a 100% fact that everything isn't going to be put into a game. Its to show off technology, some things work in a game and some things dont. Clearly some things will, but its not one in the same. You cant brag about seeing gears2 from seeing a gears 1 tech demo for a new unreal 3 engine.
I think this will be the most hyped up game this year, and second best seller (GTA4 #1) for the year.
MS will hype this just like halo 3 last year....
with toys, novels, big-budget movie in the works, and a Gears dew :)
Definitely my most wanted game this year!! The online is seriously addicting, the only game i take it personal when I lose...probably because its 4 on 4.
Star Wars unleased being my second.
all you sony droids can cry and whinge about whatever you want about GOW2, but it wont change the fact thats its better than all your crappy 2008 lineup combined. now you can all go cry in a corner cause you will never get this game. get over it ps3 loser fanboys
hope you noticed I was joking .... right ?
Like you said we're talking about video games ! Get a grip !
That Tai guy looks interesting but I'm happy there will be a bit more focus on the story this time. Despite how much fun I had with the first one there was some moments where I was like what hell is this story about. I'm interested to see the new changes made to the Unreal Engine in Gears 2 and where the overall story will go this time.
Your my hero POG I love you more then my kids.
Jason360, thanks alot for the link. O man all my questions answered on that video. Gears of War 2 is going to be miles better than the 1st. The water physics is amazing, Graphics, and the destructible environment. 100 locust, that was realllllly scary!!!
I love this site, all my gaming news wrapped up in a neat package in one place. Just wish I could comment n' interact w/the "gamers" on here more often. Anyway, can't wait for the release, they're doing some great things with the UT3 Engine. I'm especially looking forward to the destructible environments, and soft body physics. It's going to be interesting to see how separate difficulty setting for each player in co-op will pan out. I'm not quite understanding how that could possibly work. The programming that goes along with that'll be a real b*tch.
people don't remember what Mark Rein said.
I smell selective memory.
Guess what's in my PC tray right now.
And it aint God of War btw.
This game's gonna rock!
GOW franchise has a ton of Upside.. Being a Ps3 owner I can see potential there.. The only problem is.. Its limited on the 360.. I think GOW devs do a great job with what they have.. I mean can you imagine what GOW would be like if they used a 50gig Blu Ray disc (like MGS4)? But ultimatly it will fall short.. It will get alot of sales.. but after gamers hear about how epic MGS4 was and How amazing RFOM2 is (another 50 gig game) GOW will fall way way short.. Im not trying to put 360 down never do.. but you guys cant be serious to think that GOW will compete with these games on a limited DVD9 disc.. I mean I admit GOW was a good title.. but seriously put yourself in a PS3 owners shows.. We are getting games that 50 gigs on ONE disc.. GOW will have slightly better graphics.. but it will be a 10- maybe 12 hr game.. and for the most part enjoyable for 360 fans.. But just remember it could be more.. WAY MORE
Gonna have to disagree. "Gigs" dont make a great game. You do realize Sony has yet to win a GOTY in next gen, right ? You do realize that Sony doesnt have a AAA exclusive yet, right (ck metacritic) ? Maybe that will finally change with MGS4...
Hey I love my PS3, but BluRay disc isnt going to make *games* get GOTY awards or go AAA, it just means there is plenty of space for raw data. BluRay sure didnt keep DMC4 from requiring "gigs" of a download to run on my PS3, while 360's dvd9 did not...
BluRay is great & all & it does give the devlopers alot of space to deal with, but what does that matter when multiplats often look & run better on 360 & are developed much faster ? Not hatin', just trying to make some valid points to my disagree.
Frankly, if dvd9 is 360's limitation, then developing for PS3's architecture is also a BIG limitation that has delayed awhole lotta games & provided some gimped multiplats.
Still, I love my PS3 & my 360, but I recognize their limitations.
Lord Vader is trying to be reasonable & use logic. Bad boy.
Lord, I agree with everything you've said. BD IS a limitation because it only runs at one speed (the inside and outside of a disc don't spin at the same speed, DVD drives deal with that, BD does not as of yet). Meaning you have to fix this with advanced coding (uncommon) or with downloads (more common).
To the other guy, are you serious? Because a game is made on a DVD it can't be as epic as a game on BD? Right, I suppose that every game made on DVD is more epic than every cartridge game (can you say Zelda: OoT?). BD only offers one thing in the end that DVD does not: potential. Potential alone doesn't make a great game.
Look at UTIII. That's a game that has, for the most part, a cult following for a fan base. It didn't do anything 'amazing' with the 50GB of storage to draw a new crowd to the game. Don't believe it, look at its sales. UTIII was made by Epic, as was Gears. Now tell me this, which Epic game is more epic? BD isn't everything.
First of all, why the f*ck are we just NOW hearing about this stupid magazine? And why the F***CK from some stupid forum? JESUS CHRIST!!!!! WHY DON'T I OWN THIS MAGAZINE???? WHY IS IT NOT IN MY LAP??? WHY CAN'T ANY IDIOTS MAKE PROPER SCANS??? F*c*ckkk
dude ur just owned urself....you've never heard of "Game Informer"....and you call urself a gamer....This is one of the best non-biased gaming magazines out..... either i can see ur just in a rush to join the one bubble gang...
Mabye because the magazine hasn't shipped to everyone yet...fukin retard... i haven't gotten my issue yet.
Ok easy guys... Never said the game wasnt gonna be good.. Im saying it can be better.. Every one knows data takes space.. the more space the more data.. The more space the more space you can have for better sound qaulity.. game length... graphics.. Never said the game was gonna suck.. Not once.. Im just saying if the Devs can make magic with limited space.. Just imagine what they could do with 50 gigs of space.. Thats all.. soo touchy..
We're just still waiting for it to actually materialize into something tangible. PS3 games don't seem to be any longer on average. People talk about the amount of characters on screen in Heavenly Sword. Are there not tons of people in Dead Rising, Ninety Nine Nights, ect? When the advantage is actually utilized we can talk again.
Cant wait to see some screenies. Gears 2 should deliver and i will definatlly pla7y this on my friends xbox next door. Love blockbuster games
