SliceGaming writes about 5 Ways to Make Gears 2 the Best Shooter of All Time.
Destructible environment and a good party system is all i need.
i don't see how vehicles will work in gears. Too few ppl and the maps are simply too small for vehicles. As for party system never played halo 2 (beyond a couple of mins of single player when i decided to rent it for xbox 360 one day) so i don't really understand the party system thing. Less lag online would be great as always. I seriously doubt epic's ability to tell a story so i honestly won't be counting on a good gears story. That being said, i don't really think gears needs much of a story to be a success. Destructible environments would add A LOT of variety to Gears since it is cover based. If concrete can be destroyed after heavy fire it keeps gamers on their toes instead of just waiting for your turn to pop from cover
I think destructible environments has become such a subjective thing. Every newly released game these days has some form of DS and it has yet to blow me away. And while playing I didn't notice the lack of DS so I could take it or leave it. And vehicles, the APC was fun for the very short time it was used. I hope they expand on that or just forget vehicles entirely
Gears of war sucks i have seen the light thanks to my sexy black PS3. i just threw my pos 360 out the window after i played my ps3 for ONLY 1 MILLISECOND. Sony is God. ignore all my negative PS3 comments in the past! (btw, i worte this retarded article before i unboxed my brand new ps3 ... i'm still tingling in my happy place!!! =))))
hahaha tougName is officially an N4G celebrity. Knew it was only a matter of time before you gathered a following. He could have been a little more subtle with your name though
i agree with you and sonarus my major gripe was how laggy everything was i think that if this game is able to have dedicated servers implemented then i would definately go out and buy a 360 for gears 2 because lag was really my only gripe with the game. i had a blast playing gears online and i was really good but i got a ps3 as one game was not enough to sway me shotgun ftw best gun in gears stops those chainsawing [email protected] in their tracks and blows them into chunks lol :)
How the hell could i forget the lag...no more lag would make this game a hell of alot better.
Stop writting trash and get a life son.
Mgs4 dosnt even need a list, already the best shooter of all time.
I thought this side of the site is moderated? I see all kinds of fanboy slams and people making names that are Xbox owners. I don't want to point fingers at troublemakers but why are they all PS3 owners? Sorry, didn't mean to feed the troll's (slowly walks away)
which he clearly is, it's all the agrees that he has..lol people have actually agreed with the mindless drivel that he has been speaking
oh, writen by toughNAME, cool i won't read then.
toughNAME = A bigger joke then Zhuk. No one is close to Power of Green, though. He is by far the biggest, most desperate 360 BABOON to ever troll N4G. Gears 2 isn't going to be the biggest, best game this year(Gears and Deadrising are my favorite 360 Exclusives... I'mjust being real... Gears isn't going to be the best game this year... Resistance 2 is going to be just as good and better this time.. I don't know about Killzone 2 yet.... but Insomniac is STOKED about Resistance 2... they assure it will no longer be a launch title ;) ). IT HAS COMPETITION. Do you morons ACTUALLY think the 4-year-in-the-making Metal Gear Solid 4.... that will end the storty of Snake... possbily in death will be ran over by Unreal Engine shooter Gears of War? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH A game that, as Edge said themselves, The production values of the the end of MGS4 fit more for an ending of "The Return of the King"(Lord of the Rings), not Halo 3. Take a hint BOTS. Or just sit and wait. MGS4 is going to be MIND BLOWING. Unlike anything we have seen so far this generation. Keep doubting Resistance 2 and Killzone 2. They are going to be MASSIVE AAA games for the PS3. I think LittleBigPlanet has a HUGEEE change of being an absolute phenomenon. Another thing to keep in mind... I was listening to Insomniac's podc ast from last Thursday.... and they said the things Sony has coming to the PSN were HUGEEE... to the point where it was going to steal people from Xbox Live. They said Sony was either goign to start cahrging for online or Microsft would have to make theirs free... and they said it was NOTHING we have seen so far.... get ready BOTS... There's a storm coming.
Nothing like a troll with a name like FlopBox accusing others of trolling while he trolls in a 360 THREAD rambling about RFOM and Killzone. I don't even think you realize how stupid and ass backwards your whole comment/rant sounds. I am going to simply say this. You fishheads claimed RFOM was going to kill Gears and Halo and it never did. Now you are setting yourself up for the same thing again. 1st to worst!
Then we can talk. R2 60 players online totally destroys any FPS in the history of gaming only on PS3. (NO PC PORTS!!!!!!!)
What makes massive multiplayer so good? RFOM blew online. Don't own a PS3, but quite a few friends do. We all thought it blew. Just bein' real son.
& just like RFoM, it sucked. #s don't equate to quality, & if you've actually played Gears MP, you would know that having more than 5 or 6 per team would be a jumbled mess. That would be like having 2 teams of 20 on R6:V. Not very tactical, & defeats the purpose of the map dynamics.
posted it,then approved it himself?talk about hustling! Gears 2 needs more than 5 things to make it comparable to Half-Life,so we'll see how close Epic can get
Half-Life didnt have a multi-player...great single player though. I cant really say thats the best shooter because of that. We all know breakfast is tastier then lunch :)...not so sure about brunch though....thats still open.
Half-Life: Deathmatch. Good times.
i agree, Half Life was a badass game.
and have it on the back of the box too. "now includes jump"
I knew Gears of War was missing something...
just add the jumping from UT in there minus the double jump
Vehicles wouldn't work in gears. Although, I don't enjoy vehicles in most shooters.
I love to see destructable environments and larger scale battles if even just in SP. I know Gears MP is more close quarters 4x4 or 5x5 but I think the SP could have some intense battles similar to COD4. Something that makes IW's COD games so great is the intensity during battle, explosions going off all over, people yelling, smoke rolling and bullets flying the way combat is. If Gears could capture that intensity in their universe that would make it truly the ultimate. I could see people getting chainsawed in one corner screaming as bullets and pieces of shrapnel flying all over the place as Locusts come charging from behind cover and a small troop of Cog's come rolling in for reinforements. Ahhhh, I am really hoping that's what they mean by bigger and badder.
I cant believe my eyes you actually made a decent post i am surprised
Wow, yes he did... Still waiting for you Endzor to make one.
1 Your username shows immaturity 2 you are ignored by 65 users 3 why do i have 6 bubbles to your 3? p.s Learn how to troll properly
lmao. RearEnd-Sore (use lube next time) GOT PWNED.
And "TheEndzor" is a name that screams maturity. Well look at that I gained another bubble, now I'm at 4. You are a PS3 fanboy and trash talk the 360, I own both systems and fight for the 360 on this site. That is the reason why I am ignored by many and I'm sure some find my name offensive and block me because of that. Still doesn't change the fact that you still haven't made a comment worth a crap.
Very weak "InYourMom" if you look at my post history you will see that i do compliment the 360 where it is due unlike most fanboys I have made many lengthy non biased comments to many articles which is why i am gaining bubbles... As a matter of fact looking at your score history it shows you as visiting the site every 5 days or so. With that said, you coming on this site from your little breaks just to bash someone and say that i haven't posted anything good is very childish and ignorant in my honest opinion And Yes you did gain a bubble probably from your little fanboy friends however i am sure that it wont last that long especially with the way you post comments P.s maybe you should learn to post something worthwhile before you bash someone else
Especially replays and having some sort of other weapon like a knife. Those are some great ideas that should be included in Gears of War 2. Having replays in Halo 3 was a big a plus and being able to share them was very nice as well. A game like Gears of War you always had that moment that made you want to go back in time and share it with some friends or who ever.
instead of a TPS?(I'm partial to FPS) lol Ok seriously ... this is subjective so, making the game perfect would be different for everyone. It's a great game as is, nuff said.
be just horrible if you did that the whole feel of the game is surrounded by hiding in cover with the 3rd person view picking your best time to fire
that disagreed with me should notice that I said this all is subjective. It's personal opinion. You have yours and I have mine. Either way, I noted the games success as is.
The only way to make Gears Of War 2 the best shooter of all time is to release it on PLAYSTATION®3,where it can actually become the game Epic wants it to be. $hane
I think we are going to have to work on your bubbles troll. You should have NONE and I am going to take one at every opportunity I get.
I think Shane will be here a lot longer on this site then you will
Well I don't believe above mentioned feature will make a game greatest of all time. There needs to be revolutionary features in a game in order to make it best of all time. Gears2 will be a great game if it includes all these features, but best shooter of all time is an overstatement.
Very professional, he can find a way to separate his job from his taste. And of course, he HAS taste, unlike those pigs, baboons, Xtards, whatever you wanna call them... you know them well. The only way to make Gears 2 rock is to utilize the full capacity of a 50 GB Blu-ray disc. Oh wait.
yes oh wait. u have got to have your daily doce up of sony cum. now get down and suck that sony salami
^^^ LOL at the flaming [email protected]
Gears was a great game, but please get rid of the damn jumping, shaking, "cinematic" camera! Why does a constantly shaking camera make a game better?! Dark Sector had the same thing. Damn it!
seriously off topic but i gotta blow off some steam the [email protected] xbox heat box sh!t box whatever is trash i just tryed to play madden everytime console just freezes for no reason dont beleive me go look at my acount and look at my gamer tag how could these [email protected] like power of green lawman brother simon aka gaymon like such a peice of junk, i feel bad because a lot of cheap @ss people are going buy the arcade 360 with gta not knowing anything about how crappy it is, such a sad shame i have all three dont beleive me i will give you all my ids and wii number to prove myself, ps3 or wii never gave me any trouble just that cheap @ss xcrap and im tired of it im tired of comin to n4g and see people bash the ps3 cause the crap box had a year head start on everything i pray sony wins and microsoft stops making consoles because we are going to keep goin through the same stuff. man ps3 ftw for real, [email protected] dlc on gta4 im going to get the one i kn ow i can play and not worry about breakin
no one cares about you.
Dude...the things listed there were obvious as hell...
How about some cross-hairs in the 3rd person view instead of relying on a zoomed in approach. Aiming in that game sucked.
vehicles in gears 2? in sp sure but not in mp. it would be turning into ut3 then. as for lag, dedicated servers sounds good to me. new mp modes will probably included. and i don't think there is much to worry about in terms of a story as we have all ready heard, that is going to be a priority this time round. rest assured, i'm sure this game is gonna kick locust ass.
yea gears was iight thats why i bought it for my computer, i wouldnt choose it over most games considering it got old after a short wile,u guys praise it cause its the only good game you got, Microsoft stays having franchises that dont improve from the start, look at halo for example halo 1 was good when it came out, they just killed it by making 3 of them, it gets old after a wile just like sending your easy break oven back to Microsoft gets old PS: well see what happens in the long run. PS3 over 13 million units sold going on 2 years, "XBOXpleaseFixMe" over 17 million units sold going on 3 years you do the math. buy the way the playstation eye toy is gonna get crazy in the future, it really changes the way you play a game, sony=better technology. how can you even own a console that cant play socom? im not gonna get into games, jus gonna play me some gt5 prolouge, peace
1) 4 player splitscreen online and offline 2) A long decent story 3) Interesting characters 4) A variety of weapons and vehicles 5) Lots of different Locust species
