This morning Epic has released the title update for their hit sequel Gears of War 2, check out what they've patched!
Thanks Epic. Don't fix any of the horrendous game play problems. Thanks now we can find matches faster and realize that much more that the game is broken.
Take your fantasy land trolling to the open zone. Why havnt the mods deleted THAT trolling garbage?
Would you prefer them releasing the entire thing a few months down the road, instead of fixing the most important issues as they show up? Or not patch it at all? If you actually read the article, you would read: "In order to get the update out as quickly as possible, we focused just on immediate infrastructure issues and have left any potential gameplay issues for a future update." I think a bug that prevented people from playing campaign when live was down is a little more important than a few balancing issues.
Someone call JeanPool when they fix the chainsaw. Until then, he isn't playing.
Lack skills to kill chainsaw chargers? Awww, poor baby.
ill check it later but a few things i dont like about Gears 2 is...the dam chainsawing, its so easy to kill someone now. i.e i did a roll from an enemy a second later it draws me back to a cutscene of me being murdered by my opponent..f'n joke man. my second point is the matchmaking system its so unnecessary, you could sit there for five minutes looking for a game its really annoying. compared to the first Gears this game hasnt improved vastly in the online section. I really missed the unranked custom games.
you're a blind fanboy. if you check my profile i OWN ALL 3 CONSOLES which i enjoy. I have both Gear titles so please save your rant. As for the disagrees it just shows that they don't play the game online, don't own it or even played the first Gears.
Definitely agree with you about the chainsawing. At first I just hated the game because of the easy chainsaw kills but now i've adopted and changed my strategies. No more roadie shotguns anymore unless you know the guy doesn't have his lancer out. One thing that pisses me off about the game are those easy grenade kills when its planted on the wall. I mean you dont even have time to blink when you set one off your dead! Host advantage is still present as well. One thing I hated about the first Gears. I know host advantage is always going to be there in games but it seems to be more of an advantage in Gears than any other games I play.
You suck if you get chainsawed all the time, if you know how to melee or use the shotgun you wouldn't get raped by the chainsaw. Quit your whining. My gamertag is owningudotcom, I love destroying noobs like you.
gdgdgd makes it that much better now... Gears 2 here I come :D
And not a moment to soon. The long waits were actually beginning to put me off playing it. Or at least, wait to play it. Good news.
So it's out of Open Beta now? ;)
Holy crap, a joke warrants 4 disagrees? I think a Christopher Reeves joke would have gone over better...

Gears of patch 2 shame this get hight score,, whole the game need patch to work. low deployment cost (creepy game all bugs)+ Good marketing= Microsoft rules
what about little big patch?, server patch anyone?
well not like some ps3 titles they need a patch to fix a previous patch lol
The PS3 is the patch leader...My PS3 have over 6gb of patches. :(
Nice ownage by all of you lol
still takes me ages
for me i am done with this game after i finished the suicide missionary and it is time to play COD 5 multilayer. see you soon guys.
there we go. leave this game like i did until they fix it. horde is great but that was supposed to be an extra not the core of the multiplayer. fix it epic! no excuses. they actually had time to work on multiplayer
What gameplay issues? Do they mean all the improvements? Lol. If people don't like the improvements... go back to playing gears 1 crybaby's.
thanks for nothing epic... go to recent players through the game after a match... do they actually play their game? that would never work...one person leaves or doesnt come and ur down on people and cant get more... bring back public unranked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
actually it works all the time, you goto your recent players list and hit X to invite all you need is one person and you were in business matchmaking is working smooth for me now, before i was only having trouble with 4 player parties I had no problem getting in games alone
i want to know why i get a unplayable disc error for 20 minutes before my game will load, even though it is brand new, scratchless and all my other discs (including scratched ones) work fine. patch that and i'll be happy
If you don;t have a HDD/Space/Internet then Blame Epic like others do when they continue to get Chainsawed.
The game is installed, it just wont recognise the disc.
that sounds like a disc drive problem imo
doesnt look your (damn) update sped anything up for me! Please. . .JUST LET US CHOOSE RANKED OR UNRANKED ! EVEN ,I mean EVEN games like smackdown vs raw09,08,07 lets you choose.In fact,the MAJORITY does.Its getting really annoying now. . .during development,Epic said they rewrote the multiplayer code to make us finding games faster,and I was shocked.Faster than GeOW1 ? ? But now I see the searching for a game,the time wasted is BIGGER,BETTER and just ass though.gameplay issues.Chainsaw sometimes,not always is a b1tch. But. . .IM GLAD the shotgun got its downgrade.
check you internet connection and your nat settings after the update it takes me less than 30 seconds to find a game as for choosing, the choice is there...public or private you want a player match then set up a private game, it isn't that hard
PATCHES for Gear Of Flop 2, no patches is needed as the game suck.... BTW the only award it getting is (FLOP-OTY 2008) ccc - Exclusive only on Flopbox 3fixme. (Jump Out)
