Resistance 2 looking better than Gears?...does'nt sound right
I think so. I never liked the Unreal Engine 3.
Grey > Brown
That is just a sentence to bring up the interest in the article. That's what all good journalists do.
Resistance 2 is looking better than Gears 2 as for Gameplay Resistance 2 easily has the edge with 8 player co-op and 60 plsyer online
Every1 finds it so hard to believe R2 cant look better than Gears, well how do they know, they havent seen any of the latest/final build for R2 or Gears for that fact. But in my opinion, Gears 2 graphics have already been passed by previous games on both platforms (from what we have seen so far) As for R2 graphics, i think its difficult to have great looking graphics for such huge environments, probably almost like a sandbox as some levels will be huge for the bosses to navigate through.
Name one game besides GoW1 that comes close to GoW2 ? Let alone surpassing it
Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavenly Sword, Motorstorm, Motorstorm 2 ... they all look better than Gears
Well I'll go ahead and name two games that vastly surpass Gears of War since you thought that it would be a challenge to name one. Metal Gear Solid 4 Uncharted
lol not to mention whats on the way like killzone 2, heavey rain, infamous or RE5 ! Basically, most games now look as good as, or better than GeoW 2, i think people are just trying to hold onto the fact GeoW 1 looked so good compared to what was out at the time but now its sequel just doesnt stand out at all graphics wise (when compared to the above games mentioned)
I don't think Uncharted looked better than Gears of War. The graphic styles were just different. Gears had a gritty future look to it and Uncharted had cartoony FarCry looking graphics.
Maybe on the x360... Have you seen any PS3 exclusives!?
Uncharted doesnt look better than Gears??? It actually looks OCEAN better than Gears. X360 wont ever have anything that can rival the likes of Uncharted/Mgs4/gt5/killzone 2/mag/heavy rain and gow3 Ofcourse Resistance 2 will look and play better than gears 2
elementx, read some reviews and most of them will say that uncharted was one of the best looking game this generation, that title was (arguably) taken over by MGS4
I've played both and they're great games, I just liked the graphics in Gears better. It may or may not have better graphics than Uncharted, I've never compared them side-by-side.
i thought the picture on the article had to kind of have something to do with the story...wolverine isn't involved here even though these are "rumors" you would at least expect a source from somewhere i'm gonna go ahead and not believe these until i actually see something other than a few lines on a random blog, probably shouldn't have even been approved but it is n4g
I guess you don't know 2 things: 1. Who Weapon X refers to 2. That N4G approves stories categorized as rumors when they actually are...rumors.
You can make up some yourself and post them if you feel like it. Here are my own sourceless rumors: * Alan Wake to be released in quarter 1,2 or 3 in 2009 * Bill Gates to star in Gears of War 2 * Resistance 2 to get banned in Germany and Australia because it depicts aliens in a racist way * Playstation 3 will get an external HD-DVD player this holiday The Bitbag can have them for free if you want to post them, Torrence. I'm sure they will get you some traffic...
Hey Jenzo, when and if any of these rumors come true, you are the first one I'm calling out. They are just rumors and were posted as so. Weapon X has a good track record and he's got some great inside connections. Once again, these are RUMORS!
Weapon X...Surfer Girl...whatever. I'm calling you out on my rumors as well! Now go write some more flamebait articles with no substance or sources. Ooops! Too late! http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
If you believe that you have to be a retard Gears of war 2 graphically crushes resistance 1.5 theirs no competition
Very true. I've seen all the HD videos of both games. While R2 does look good, there's just no comparison. Everyone knows it, but some fanboys pretend they don't.
Are you stupid? Have you even seen Resistance 2? I'm guessing you don't even have a ps3. Both games look good.Stop complaining just because the one that looks better is on a system you don't have.
GeoW is the 1.5 version. Didnt you said your nephew show you the game?then you should know this by now, IT DOES LOOKS BETTER THAN GeoW2(or perhaps your imaginary nephew didnt show it to you). R2 is looking better and better every time i see it, its just awesome. If (LBP.rumor=true) then CEMELC=Happy.
Whatever helps you sleep at night PP
That is a fact. Not a rumor. Anyone who has been following Resistance 2 knows this. Not only bigger, badder and more badass with 300 feet bosses, ultra insane weapons like the slicers and massive gore, but also 60 player online, 8 player COOP, better story. Resistance 2 OWNS Gays in war 1.5. http://www.gamespot.com/pag... These pictures dont lie. Resistance 2 is bigger, badder and more badass than Gays in war 1.5. Thats beside the point...HOW DO YOU GET THE KRATOS SACKBOY GUYS. Does anyone know? For EU resident?
"Fable 2 preorders for the collectors edition comes with Gears Of War 2 clothing." For your character or you personally? If it's you then that's pretty lame...
It's not that hard to believe resistance 2 surpasses gears 2.Even bioshock looks better than gears and that a game from 2007.Both games graphically look great so it doesn't seem to be that big of a deal.Just look at F.E.A.R.2 and how good that looks.Multiplatform titles look like they are stepping up a notch.
i dont wanna get too excited cuz its a rumor but if its true GOW lvl on lbp for the people who preorder the game at gs ... oh boy, i hope i get to kill zeus at the end but then again he needs to live cuz he still has to fight kratos one last time lol, sony gimme GOW3 gameplay plz
i bought my 360 just for GoW. I found the game nice in terms of graphics but VERY VERY boring. I mean the game follows the same patern all the time: hide-shoot-hide-SHOOT-Berseeke r(or whatever is called)and then shoot again. Then i playd Bioshock, which in my opinion is the greatest game for Xbox. I watched a couple of trailers for Gears 2 and I feel it' s all of the same: one or two improvements, plus the new "meat-shield'', some detail there, a little bit colour here. on the other hand, I will definately buy this game just to see where the story goes(????), and eeeeeeeeeem just for some SundayAfternoonBRUTALtimewaste . By the way R2 looks like a ton of fun imo.
So what else are you supposed to do when your in a shootout? Stand still and shoot?
Of coarse not. you mindlessly "run n gun" .
The 1 major complaint i had about 1 first gears is the story was....... hell, there was no story. Everything else was good though.Favorite thing about gears is the chainsaw.That was awesome dude.
who cares about graphics? both of these games will LOOK amazing, but it's the RESISTANCE gameplay that i'm after. ...well that and anything LBP. Catapult? please. GoW levels? i'll make em' myself if not true.
smokingmonkey you just read my mind man , i was thinking the same thing if theres no GOW lvls on lbp i will make them myself and a metal gear one and a zelda one as well lol
We've seen videos from Gears 2 as well as R2: R2 looks like R1 not much better. R1 had mediocre graphics Gears 2 looks improved on Gears 1 and Gears 1 had real next gen graphics. Gears 2 will chainsaw R2 in two parts. BTW read it closely: "Resistance 2 graphics may be beyond Gears Of War." MAY BE Anything may be.
I am extremely hyped about Triple A Resistance 2. "Ted Price: At this point, we feel very comfortable with the PS3, especially since Resistance 2 is our fourth PS3 title. One benefit of developing for a sole platform is that we've been singularly focused on pushing the PS3 harder and harder. And as a result, each game we release shows significant improvements over its predecessors." And the pictures dont lie. Resistance 2 eats Gays in war 1.5 alive. Dont forget to click "full size". http://www.gamespot.com/pag... Bigger, badder and more badass...than gays in war 1.5! OWNED!
Why are PS3 tards always denying the facts? Gears 1: 9.4 out of 10 http://www.gamerankings.com... Resistance 1: 8.7 out of 10 http://www.gamerankings.com... It'll be the same again this time around.
there is no way Gears 2 would trump Resistance 2 live in ur fanboy dreams about Gears 1.5 and remove that LBP image from ur avatar u stupid bastard FART at XFARTKINGS
How bout this.. You people keep fighting over which game looks better. I'll actually go play them, sound good? Good. (When they release.) Have a good day.
Pathetic droids can't except the truth at least i will be playing gears of war 2 with next gen graphics as for resistance 2 graphically you can tell its a rushed job under delivering piece of crap. I've also heard Hollywood is making a MOVIE of gears of War anyone making a movie of resistance or is it unworthy for a movie
Its a Rushed JOB? are you kidding me, this guy its a douche(and has no sence of reality). Resistance 1 came a year earlier than GeoW, so R2 is been in development more than GeoW2(the equation goes like this R2=GeoW2+1, where GeoW2=2 years, i know you'll not understand but give a try its simple). I know this will make look stupid but don't worry its nothing you didn't already knew.
Until then, there is no way to say which game looks/plays better. Personally, both games are day one purchases for me. I loved the prequels and played the heck out of them. I think it is pointless to debate which game is superior in X way or Y way until we know. A rumor is just that...a rumor. Judging by what I saw as a Qore user, I'm pretty sure Resistance 2 will live up to hype. Likewise, Gears of War 2 should top the original. Lets be excited two amazing games are coming out within days of one another. See you online when they come out.
Resistance 2 is just COD with aliens. Been there done that. Just another fps. At least Gears does things differently and that is why I enjoy Gears more. I seen both games in action and both games look great but Gears 2 easily takes the cake. The journalist is just throwing some fire in that sentence to bring up interest. That's what all good journalists do.
Resistance 2 has 60 player online, 8 player co-op, better story mode and better game play COD4 is better than all games on your x360
What does Gears do that's different?
Well name a third person shooter with a cover system and has extensive multiplayer features like Gears 2??? Because I can name you about a 1000 games that play like Resistance. Gears 2 throws in Horde mode which sounds insanely fun and a NEW REFRESHING TAKE ON CTF called Meat Flag. What does Resistance 2 do any different from all the other shooters? Besides the fact that it stole every idea from COD4. EDIT So I guess you failed on trying to think of a game that matches Gears 2. And Killswitch? That game is like 10 years old. That's the best you can think of??? Thanks for proving my point. Gears 2 is a rare gem. Resistance is a fun game but it's just another COD type game. Just another fps. Been there done that.
3rd person cover system is nothing new. Online is nothing new. R2 has 60 player online plus squad based multiplayer. Don't ask what you don't want to know.
Killswitch had a cover system. Came out on PS2, before Gears obviously. @Ska, i did not prove your point. You asked me to name one game before gears that had a cover system, so I did. That proves my point that Gears wasn't revolutionary at all with a cover system. If I wanted to be a fanboy I could say Gears stole from Killswitch.
Gears of War 2 cover system is the best cover system in any game!
Gears really is a special game for me. It made me realise how samey first persons shooters are these days, and in fact the only FPS I have really enjoyed in a long time was CoD4.
I understand how hard it is nowadays to generate traffic to a website but this is ridiculous. Next time you make up "rumors" at least make them slightly believable...23 comments and only Jenzo points out the obvious. For shame gamers....for shame
Nobody has seen the final R2 game yet No beta testers no Pre view site No PP NO Mart And who is calling R 2 the same are R1 LOL Gears just looks like it has DLC Face it xbots u are getting ripped off big time and in terms of GFX on both games We all no its not down to that R2 will win all the way with 8 player coop anti lag servers with 60 people vs in each other and more Resistance has a future expect R3 to have 100 vs 100 if not more if they work with Mag team servers SONY FTW
Stop approving this crap, it's even lower than PSX Extreme, Hiphop gamer and Kotaku in the garbage websites set.
than R2 and it is going to be the better overall game just because there are more players in a game does not meen it is more fun to play and has strategy!
That is so true just I have a bigger stick than you doesn’t mean that you is not going to have fun with your small thing. Good point.
But look how many used copies of Gears of War there are at your local Gamestop and then look how many Resistance: Fall of Man's there are. Even taking selling proportions into account, it's a BIG difference! Resistance 2 is going to be incredible! There's no way around it. Gears of War 2 will be good, just like the first one. It just won't be amazing. The first one had an innovative camera technique, which was nice. However, that didn't save the repetitive gameplay. I would call the environments in RFOM some of the most memorable of any game in recent history...and that includes Shadow of the Colossus, Zelda, and Kingdom Hearts.
But its not better than R2. R2 is much better than gears 2. Maybe not graphics but everything else. To compare the fun factor to Gears 1 and R1, R1 wins hands down. Gears just had really bad bullet lag online.
<i>Fable 2 preorders for the collectors edition comes with Gears Of War 2 clothing.</i> If this is true, then they are seriously desperate in marketing Fable II. Gears of Wars fans will obviously buy Fable II for this. And no, not all 360 gamers are both Gears of War and Fable fans at the same time. Some GeOW fans doesn't like Fable.
They got it all wrong. - Pre-order GOW2 from Gamestop and get a free CliffyB action figure, designed by Todd McFarlane! - Resistance 2 might look better than Gears of War 2, but I think we're all more excited that it will play better. This just in: New enemy in Gears of War 2 looks like blatent rip-off of the "Angels" from Resistance: Fall of Man. I know they didn't do it on purpose. I just think it's a bit ridiculous.
but I seriously doubt it will make GeOW fans buy the game. Why would they buy a 60 dollar game just because of a custom armor? I will probably get the game because it looks enjoyable. Why else does one buy games? Personally, I had much more fun with Gears than I had with Resistance, but then again I just recently bought Resistance. This time, though, I will buy both games around the same time and enjoy them both. Who cares which one will look better? They are both looking great. I'm more excited about this holiday season than this one. My wallet, on the other hand, isn't very excited at all...
they should put Ryu Hayabusa's outfit in.
