Gears Of War 2: Awesome New Features Revealed

A recent GearHeads podcast has revealed some amazing new features of Epic's blockbuster in the making, Gears Of War 2. Along with an epic (pardon the pun) multi-player match between Cliffy B's team and the GearHeads crew, in-depth discussions reveal:

How using the new grenades work (Sticking them to anything, stun effects, etc.)

Hear how the Scorcher treats opponents like a cigarette.

How Gears 2 feels compared to the original.

The Locust shield can be used to decapitate opponents. (Gears of War 2, Xbox 360)

Meh.
Game looks just like gears of war 1, it lacks the WOW factor to be GOTY like MGS4 or R2.
fenderputty  +   2356d ago
It's gonna
be tough considering GTA4 and MGS4 had 10's tossed at it like they were going out of style.

I do think Gears is going to kick major ass though.
Tommy Vercetti  +   2356d ago
GOTY 2008?
Certainly a top candidate. No other shooter this year comes close. I do agree with "fenderputty" It might go to Gta4 or MGS4.

Gotta love how Sony fans come in here and "TRY" mention Resistance and Killzone in the same breath as Gears when they know realistically they have no form of arguement besides fanboy dreams. LOL

Resistance was never even considered or talked about for GOTY in 06 or even came close to selling as many copies even tho it was bundled in Europe. Decent game but no one outside of a fanboy would even put them in the same catagory.

Killzone. I'll admit it looks good, but we have been down this road before. The original Killzone was a HUGE disappointment and got low scores accross the board. But like I said, this one might be pretty good.

So before I get all these disagrees from Sony fans, PLEASE give me some solid facts or trends that will dispute my arguement. Till then, just accept the fact that Gears is better. That is why it's always higher on everyones most wanted lists. And that my friends is a cold hard FACT!!!

Most of what you said is correct. I am a PS3 owner but I am willing to admit Gears of War was better than Resistance Fall of Man. But both sequels are looking amazing and I think to call one better than the other before all is said and done would be premature.

Well of course Resistance wasn't going to win game of the year. The PS3 wasnt even out when Gears came out. No launch game is going to win game of the year. Gears was better than Resistance one because people had a longer time to work with the 360.

The argument and the reason why a lot of people feel Resistance 2 will be better is that the two are on more equal footing now. It seems that Resistance 2 has many major changes from the prequel as opposed to Gears of War 2 which will be better than the first but it's not doing something that we haven't seen before like Resistance is.

This can't be GOTY 08 because you can't play as a sterile old man with back problem who hides in cardboard boxes and prefers to fondle a man's genitalia while thinking he is a pirate. ARRRRG! Oh crap, my back!

Gears 2 is going to kick ass, be bigger, badder, and more badass than the original. But GOTY 2008, don't know about that one.

Besides, this whole "GOTY" award is pretty pointless, considering many different sources and outlets will have they're own GOTY awards.

yeah really though, like the guy above me said, alot of people have their own GOTY awards so i doesn't really matter I'm sure GTA, MGS4, Gears, and R2 will all win one somewhere.

Halo CE is for Combat evolved. Was it really a launch title on the xbox though? I thought it came out a little while later. cant remember but its the reason I bought the original xbox and probably why I bought the 360. Its Gears that will keep me a slave to xbox in general though. Resistance 1 is a pretty crappy game though. I havent finished it and its the only game I have for my ps3 right now. Now before I get disagrees I will state why. the weapons sound like a 70's science fiction b movie. I like heavy machine gun sounds. To each his own I guess.
Mozilla89  +   2355d ago
lol
Well no problem, thanks for reminding me for what the CE stood for, there was a special download for Halo PC i think called CE and I though it stood for custom edition. It allowed users to make maps and stuff, but its along time ago so I might be wrong.

I think if Halo didn't come out on launch it came out really close to it. The whole point I was trying to make was that comparing a second generation xbox game to a first generation ps3 game is not equal. That being said I can understand why you feel Resistance 1 is terrible, I guess its not for everyone. Or you might have played too much COD4.

My GOTY Contenders are;

-MGS4
-GTA4
-GeOW2

Between all of this games above i think MGS4 will take the crown. The game is just to good in all aspects. MGS4 game of the year followed by GeOW2. I think GTA4 is a good game but is a little overrated.

What about Fable 2? This game is shaping up very good. We'll see.

This game is going...
...to be a huge seller for the 360. The original Gears of War for me was really the first next-gen game to hit the 360 with its detailed graphics, larger than life characters and in your face, unapologetic action. Sure the story was lacking but Gears of War was one hell of a ride that really made you happy to own an HD display.

Sony need something like this on the PS3. Ok, lets not get into the Uncharted debate as we all know it features some fantastic graphics however, it does not even come close to the gritty, R-rated action offered in Gears.

nycredude  +   2356d ago
@Close Second
And the same can be said about the 360.

Xbox 360 needs a game like Uncharted. Gears had great graphics nut it doesn't even come close to the colorful, witty, fun blockbuster movie experience that is offered in Uncharted.

See what I did? For someone with an avatar like yours you sure sounded like a fanboy.
Close_Second  +   2356d ago
For f**k sake...
...The only similarity between Uncharted and Gears is the fact that they are both played from a 3rd person perspective and have a cover system. I have played through both and I have to admit that although Uncharted was fun I (repeat "I") did not find it as impressive overall as Gears.

You have to take into consideration that Uncharted is basically a game like Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider but on next-gen steroids in terms of visuals. Gears to me felt like the kind of blockbuster game you had always wanted to play but hardware limitations prevented it from being possible. In terms of gameplay I can definitely see where they can make major improvements - and yes, the same can be said of Gears. Sure the characters were good and the story could have easily been used for National Treasure 2 (which probably would have made that a better movie) but Uncharted's gameplay did not even come close to being as "in your face" as Gears.

I must add that Uncharted did start to really knock my socks off once you got into the abandoned WWII U-Boat base where the lighting and scare factor really came into its own.

The great thing about not being a fanboy as you suggest, is that I get to play both gears and uncharted and I therefore feel I can make a better judgement than those that play one and just read about the other.

Finally, I get sick and tired of tossers on this site calling you a fanboy because you happen to like one game more than another. I did not put down Uncharted but merely pointed out that I bet Sony would love Gears of War (or something like it) on the PS3 and the fact that gears features what I believe to be more "gritty, R-rated action".

Oh actually, one last point. Given that sales for Halo 3, Gears of War, Bioshock and just about any other AAA title released on the 360 eclipse actual sales of Uncharted (no, I'm not counting copies bundled with the PS3 as sales) then I dare say that Sony would want "Gears" more than Microsoft would want "Uncharted".

Actually, reading Close Second's comment. He does not sound like a fanboy at all. He's actually right, the PS3 really doesn't have anything as gritty and R-Rated like Gears right now. UT3 doesn't count because it's multiplatform.

The only game I can think of that will be gritty, ruthless and bloody is God of War III. But we don't even know how that looks like yet.

I used to fall for that "You sound like A fanboy bait", sometimes it makes no difference what you say.

lol! flop? funny how you sony leg hupers have flops mixed with AAAs... in what way was Gears 1 a flop? It was game of the year, sold more than any game on the PS3 did or probably ever will...

let me guess.. Gears 1 was a flop and Haze and lair was not? you sony leg humpers are pathetic and already lost the ability to tell the difference between a flop and a AAA title...

call gears 2 wherever you want.. but it's guaranteed that this game will make any PS3 game sells look like poop... even if the game sells as good as the first (which will obviously do) your lovely PS3 wouldn't be able to match it. Hell not even Metal Gear got closed to this game.. regardless of the fact that it was the most anticipated PS3 game and the pS3 have a larger installbase than what the xbox 360 had when Gears 1 came out.

We'd say that currently Gears of War tops it, and a few other titles are on the same visual level, but the game looks extremely nice."

Only those who don't have a 360 are telling themselves over and over that it's going to be a flop. Correction, only those fanboys who don't have a 360 are telling themselves over and over that it's going to be a flop. Most normal people don't care.

Yeah maybe last year,what did you have for the last 6 months?
NG2? that was a fail.

You have nothing to look forward to in the future.
09's gonna be a rough year for the 360 fans.
"Sony leg humpers" lmao i've read 5 post's of yours in the last 2 hours with that,get some new material.

so what 360 got some decent scores?

so halo 3 scored good.although it was a terrible game.
GTA IV scored good.although it was a terrible game

It comes down to a matter of opinion and prefference.

For example,to me,Warhawk is the best online game i've ever played.
Motor storm.Best off road racing game i've ever played.
Godfather:Dons edition to me,it beats GTA IV in every way.
Folklore,amazing grapics,intruiging storyline
GTP best racing game on the market right now,and it's only a demo.
Speaking of demo's SSHD one of the most addictive and visually impressive game's i've ever seen.
Genji days of the blade,yet another fun,graphically impressive game.
Heavenly sword,AGAIN another fun visually impressive game.

Wanna know why i dont own a 360? I DONT LIKE ALIEN SHOOTING GAMES.
Not everyone like's the same game's as you.that's why there's 3 different console.

The only difference is one of those 3 has a terrible failure rate.

Of course you hate Gears of War.. It's on the 360. Duh.
And, of course it's going to be a seller. Duh.

@ThatCanadianguy420 - Uhm.. "It comes down to a matter of opinion and prefference." Exactly. It's all about opinions. So why don't you shut up then? No one cares about your opinion, just as I'm sure you don't care about my opinion. But, there is a difference between opinions and just being an ignorant fanboy, and.. you are being an ignorant fanboy.
"I DONT LIKE ALIEN SHOOTING GAMES." Then don't buy them you idiot, buy the other games that are out. You really are an idiot if you believe that the 360 only has shooters..
"Of course it'll be a seller,they have nothing else to buy." Ahahaaa. Actually, there will be plenty to buy this year, you would have to own a 360 to notice that, though. Sorry. =)

You know, even if the 360 has the most AAA titles, it might have something to do with the fact that IT HAS MORE GAMES THAN THE WII AND PS3 COMBINED!!!

And besides, what's the point of having all of these games that you claim are AAA if you can't play them because your system exploded!!?

Bladestar: "At least try to come up with a smarter xbox360 bashing..but not about the games... even idiots know that the xbox 360 has the most games."

I just feel that Halo and Greys of...I mean Gears of War 2 were way too overrated.

Just because any of you don't like Gears 2 don't mean it won't be awesome. If someone doesn't like MGS4 because they don't like the storyline, gameplay or cutscenes, does that mean the game isn't awesome? No, it doesn't. Some of you are bashing Gears just because you don't own a 360. Gears 2 will be one of, if not the best game of the year.

I seriously doubt either Grand Theft or Metal Gear will end up GOTY. Yes they both got 10s like Bioshock but lets not forget why Bioshock recieved the award and Gears before it, because they were astounding "new" IPs. Now if we are going by sales then I would have to say GTAIV would win hands down. This will be a very interesting year one way or another but my money is on Fall Out.

Man if GTA4 gets goty , I will be pissed gta4 is cool and all but really it was a let down ..wayyyy over hyped. I say gears 2 or mgs4 has to.

I think GTA4 was over hyped. I mean fans know that GTA games are good buys because the games are typically long and have great replay value. But I don't think GTA4 has done anything really ground breaking.

Smash Brothers... eh. That game sucked actually. The single player gameplay was horrible and "thrown" together and multiplayer was horribly laggy and almost unplayable at times. I owned my copy for a few weeks before trading it in.

I haven't played MGS4 but I know it has a lot of hype. After a few weeks we'll see where it stands. I don't know if the game brought any revolutionary gameplay elements in except for the exceptional plot but again I haven't played it. I think it is a strong contender for GOTY.

Gears 2, if anything like Gears, will be one of those addicting slug fests that you just cannot put down. I know so many people who still play gears daily. The single player is only disappointing in the fact that it isn't enough to feed the craving to play. You just don't want to stop. Even finding a copy of Gears is challenging. Lots of Gamestops and such are still sold out (I think they recently re-released it though). The bad thing is although it adds lots of new gameplay elements to the already good gears mix... I don't know if it will be revolutionary enough to get GOTY. The end of year release will surely help feed its nomination for GOTY.

Fable 2, again... simply adds to the first game. Nothing really revolutionary. Great game though with lots of awesome replay value.

IMO LittleBigPlanet will be the GOTY simply because of its radical game design. It isn't due out till October which, like Gears 2, the "newness" factor will fuel its win.

socomnick, you are an absolute imbecile. He said NOTHING about ANY console, yet your highly inadequate brain tells you to insult him about being a Sony fanboy.

I am beginning to lose faith in the human race. All this rabid idiocy makes me sick to the stomach.

False
The first gears had lots of revolutionary gameplay and it had a story. The only downfall was the single player game was short. The multiplayer more then made up for it.

If I had to compare the story lines to any other game, I would say it feels like Half Life.

The gameplay is unlike any other. It has sort of a futuristic Unreal feel... but it has lots of mechanics that put it in its own category.

Gears 2 will be an instant classic and will be a nominee for GOTY...

"Of course it'll be a seller, they have nothing else to buy".

and what ps3 owners do?

What are you asking exactly?
Z501  +   2356d ago
Bladestar must've forgot about
VAMPIRE RAIN
Hour of Victory
Two Worlds

ETC....

See how they forget.

It's funny how the "bots" like to talk about PS3 owners waiting, while they WAIT for Gears 2, cause Mass Effect & Ninja Gaiden 2 have come & gone.

Using the shield as an multi purpose weapon/tool is a great feature.

LOL@ThatCanadianguy420

I read your BIO and it boggles my mind you would troll in 360 threads anyways; hating a company as you do(severe hatred forming into MALICE) doesn't seem healthy mentally.

epic post! it's like your looking into like a bizzaro world where everything is backwards. You should start putting a warning before your posts stating: Dont read if you have a full bladder cuz you will piss yourself!. e.g "Warhawk is the best online game i've ever played" --translation--> warhawk is the only online game i've played so itz teh best. or "Heavenly sword,AGAIN another fun visually impressive game" --traslation--> i like 6 hour movies!. why didn't you mention LAIR? isn't that a "gem" too? I think you need to lay off the rocks and stop giving canadians a bad name.

"09's gonna be a rough year for the 360 fans" --wasn't 08 supposed to be the death of the 360? riiiight.....

+bubz for the laugh
RememberThe357  +   2354d ago
You really need to stop hatin. And the death of the 360? WTF? No. But tell me what the 360 has gotten that the PS3 hasn't. I haven't turned on my 360 in I don't know how long, and thats staring to piss me off. I want Gears so bad I'm actually mad that its not coming out sooner.
Teknique1988  +   2356d ago
@CanadianGuy
wow its amazing how you and other droids are flooding the 360 section whats wrong metal grey solid not tieing you over or how about METAL GEAR ONLINE LMAO i see why u droids are upset since you cant get a game on that foreman grill that posseses superior online play like gears but not to worry you can always play WARHAWK LMAO=)
poopface1  +   2355d ago
yay gears 2
I cant wait to play this game. great for coop. sony fanboys crying today?
RememberThe357  +   2355d ago
I don't think so. They'll just focus on all the games that are coming out for the PS3 at the same time. This game isn't going to make anyone cry. Look, I'm really looking foreword to this game. After GI previewed this game and shined a light on all the improvements the game has received I was completely sold. But if my 360 blew up the day before it came out wouldn't be weeping in a corner or anything.

RememberThe357  +   2354d ago
Wait. What about not have a gamer tag? I don't want to pay for online play, give me a brake.
thomas0506  +   2355d ago
Gears did have innovation, it was in a totally different league from other shooters. It just made you want more. Cmon wat other games give u a chainsaw on your gun? :P
DiLeCtioN  +   2355d ago

I cannot wait.
godcrusher  +   2355d ago
I am Really
looking forward to this game. If any game would make me renew my Live account this is it. That being said I am really looking forward to Resistance 2 as well. BUt the king of the hill is when Tekken 6 comes out. I love me some fighting games.
CallOfWar22  +   2355d ago
LOL who the hell is calling Grays of War????
WTF!!! Last time I played Metal Gear 4 it was pretty gray looking itself????? Wow u Exclusive NExt Gen system owners are lame as hell. Especially the Sony ones. All u can really say is RROD and Grays of War??? LOL. Atleast Xbots make decent points. PS3 no Games, crappy ports, Movie Gear Solid 4, no mic support, long updates, crap controller. But u all can't really say all that. U can't diss Halo or Gears cuz all u can say is that it's overated. So is every game on the planet. Metal Gear is just as overated as the rest of em. I can't wait to see all of u haters in november when Gears earn numerous critical acclaim and atleast...atleast Multiplayer GOTY. IMO Just give it the GOTY! Close second to GTA 4!
