The video shows the "new" Gridlock plus the destructible environments...
Im a PS3 Fanboy, but I have 2 admit, this game looks good. The bad part is that I would not buy a 360 for one game. Too bad. Anyways I am 2 busy this semester with SOCOM, LBP, Resistance 2, Motor Storm 2 and Bioshock. lol
And WipEout HD, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Valkyria Chronicles, etc. Not to mention the multi-platform games.
real subtle trolling
As usual here come the insecure fanboys feeling the need to say "look what my console has! look!!". No one cares. The article is about Gears 2, ok? I guess the Race Pro article wasn't enough for you. This game will probably own the holidays.
No. More humor is called for.
Is that multiplayer or co-op?
What's with the fog? Is there a sniper rifle in this game or is it more of a close combat type of focus? Quite honestly, and correct if I'm wrong, it seems like EPIC has sacrificed view distance for close up detail. Can't tell how good the graphics are in this video due to the poor quality, however the game play does look solid. The fog is disturbing tho...... On a side note, I don't see how people compare this to R2, they are two different kinds of shooters, kind of funny when you think of the lengths people will go to win an argument.
Quite some time ago there were screen shot comparisons between G1 and G2. The fog that you mention was the first thing I noticed too. It's almost as if they added slightly more detail in your immediate surroundings, but that seems to have killed the detail in anything over 10 yards away.
When you mentioned that all I could imagine was Cliffy B force choking the developers. "Your lack of fog is disturbing." With or without fog though, I'm really looking forward to this game. I suppose it'll be a bit more of a new experience for me since I never really got to play the first Gear's multiplayer online. I expect it will be my favorite aspect of the game for this one though.
Or maybe that level has fog and the others don't? "I don't see how people compare this to R2, they are two different kinds of shooters" True indeed, one was an average FPS while the other one was a mega succesful, GOTY-winning third person shooter.
@ Jenzo.. Thanks for not answering ANY of my initial questions about the game and coming off like a complete A$$, you are truly a wealth of information that surely can never be fully tapped. Among fanatics on this site you are truly the master of making comments irrelevant to the current conversation. Thanks for the disagree, you sure made a powerful statement with that and your well thought out response. Kudos to you sir.
the way the camera move when the player run. it,s the best thing in GOW(for me) and the multiplayer looks good.
I didn't know there was multiplayer in God of War?? And the camera moves when you run? fascinating! Edit:Actually GOW=God Of War.It came out first..therefore it gets that acronym.Gears of War is know as GeOW.Now you understand (i hope)
u understand now(i hope).
if we are going to get nit picky GeOW= Gears of War or simply GEARS or GEARS2 GOW refers God of War. thats at least how I see it.
is go to Google.com and google GOW. See what comes up, then come back and know that we are talking about Gears of War.
haha.... so easy to get under the skin of sony fans. GOW stands for Gears of War to some players, and other God of War. Do you guys think just by saying it isn't actually means anything? give it up already, GOW2 win OWN ALL other system exclusives this holiday season just checked Google and Monty is right. So from now on God of War should be known as GoOW because i said so.
fight over a stupid spelling. ok GOW=GOD OF WAR. GEOW=GEARS OF WAR. happy now guys.
God of War is whatever you want to make it. Gears of War is GOW. Like I said before, just search it in any web search engine and it will come up with Gears of War not God of War. I know this is hard to accept, but its the the truth, try it yourself and you will find out.
Yeah.. it's late.. but Monty's too much of a tool not to show up. and I quote from 82 days ago (Monty's response to X-Play G-Phoria 08): "was there really any other option? GOW on the PS2 is awesome, and then bringing it to a handheld? A no brainer for best handheld game." So unless Gears of War came out on PS2, and the rest of the gaming community doesn't know about it.. well sir, you see where I'm going with this.
wtf I was JEALOUS of this game but it is already getting stale just from watching the gameplay videos :( and oddly R2 is getting better and better the more i watch its videos :P and you can compare the two for instance imagine that gow2 was a rotted meatball and R2 was a delicious plump fruit you my like meat balls better then fruit but you would always like the plump fruit over the rotten meat ball,... but you are right it is much more related to a persons taste of games than quality. EDIT: :P i still have 1 more agree than disagry you XBOX FANBOYS CAN DO BETTER THEN THAT...EDIT: WAIT NEVER MIND
Single player is looking good but multiplayer sucks donkey balls.
Resistance 2 will tear away Gears 2 in reviews and sales this Fall
Kinda like Resistance 1 beat Gears 1..... oh wait Gears 2 more then doubled Resistance's sales even with the Bundle resistance got and it scored something like 10 points higher on average. Resistance 1=Average everyday FPS, Gears 2=Epic.
I have no idea why your comparing Resistance 1 and Gears 2. And even if you were comparing Gears 2 to Resistance THEN based it off of past sales of prequels than you just broke your argument. Why does everything need to be like a console war? "Gears 2 is Gears 1.5; They lied and said it was 2..." "Resistance looks like an old and tired Halo..." Can't PS3 owners enjoy their respectable shooter as well as 360 owners enjoy theirs? ~I am a gamer...who will go broke this holiday~
Orly is that so? Gears of war 1 – 5 million sales on install base 9 million. Resistance 1 – 2+ million sales on install base of 1 million. ORLY? This holiday season, Gays in War 1.5 will be destroyed. R2 is “bigger, badder and more badass..”.than gays in war in every way!!!
i loved Geow, but this doesn't look any different really
the gameplay is pretty much there, they tweaked a couple of things and polished the game some more. I mean Gears 1 was great except for the glitches and host advantage plus short campaign. Epic said the campaign will be longer, that they fixed the host issue and that they fixed most of the glitches/exploits from the first, so even though its "more of the same" it should be rated higher than the first cause they virtually improved everything even if it just was by a little bit
I loved when he just hammered the locust with his fist..however, I hope they increase the draw distance..unless that is intentional because Its creeping me out only seeing that far..
It will be a good game but not strenching the boundaries of the 360 or maybe the systems is tapped already...
...destruction unless the steps are made of platinum coated diamond. To me it does not look any better...just different in terms of artistic style. Now if the wind was blowing through and kicking up dust and the weeds were being trampled underfoot, etc then I'd be going wow. However, it feels like Gears of War 1.2 and not Gears of War 2.
Yeah, it looks ok. But damn, that is a REALLY low draw distance. Gameplay looks kind of funky too. Everyone's rolling like a bunch of armadillos, hehe.
ripping this game won't even play the game yet alone own a 360 to play it on, so why are they so worried? I think they have to be pretty insecure especially if they have to name their PS3 titles in here! Thanks anyway Sony Fanboys Im well aware of what I can buy and play on my PS3 this holiday season... for me on PS3 it's all about LBP! on my 360 however Gears 2 and Fable 2 fit the bill perfectly! and if you can tell the games draw distance from this toilet dump of a video you must have jesus' eyes... cause I've seen better quality videos posted on these forums with better detail/view than this by a long shot! you wouldn't judge resistance based off a video sharing this same quality would you?... freaking fanboys...
persasly, play on both. I play on my roommates 360 for GEARS and will soon to be GEARS2, cant stop my current addiction to Castle Crashers right now though, that game is epic!
