Less than two months away in both North America and Europe, here are a pair of new screenshots from Gears Of War.
Framerate hopefully will be good by the time it is released.
One thing I find funny is the xboxitcs that bash Resistance for lacking color and praise this game, which is just as lacking in color. lol
That R:FOM has no color...it looks dull and muddy (although it does take place in England...hadn't thought of that). The lighting just seems more dynamic in GOW.
But it does look next-gen where rfom doesn't.
Completely different types of games, different perspective, style of play.
Hopefully some new gameplay videos soon, I'd like to see if the framerate has been smoothed out since E3.
I'm also curious if they have more than 8 players at once now. If so how many?
I plan on getting a ps3, eventually, but I have to say that this game looks really good. Let's hope that it doesn't become friends w/ the overhype monster though...::cough:: HALO ::cough:: Don't get me wrong, it was a fun game...but it was WAY overhyped. Anywayz, this game looks awesome, I'm also looking forward to RFOM.
It's not all about looks when it comes to next-gen, though both of these games look very polished, it's also about functionality, depth, story, and just the feel of the game...something that can get a lot more in depth with the new machines.
I can not wait untill Nov.
one of the few games that looks so good, it often gets mistaken for pre-rendered CG.
It looks pretty good, but why are the people in this game so huge? Have they given any explanation yet? Anyways, I'll wait until Resistance and Gears are both out and I see them side by side on hdtvs before I authoritatively state which looks better. Its hard to judge from just screens, but both games look really sweet so far.
they are going to leave it at this and i think its a good idea. they are going for some tactical games. should be fun. no reason to have more than 4 on 4
will kill ALL ps3 shooters stone dead!!!!!
and i'm not trying to be funny,i'm just a realist!!!!!!
GOW is THE shooter of 2006!!! STANDARD!!!
Oh I know why they can't do what we do. Right. The are full that S#!t. *LOL*
Exactly DC rider 360.
I know thats like impossible but please a demo would make this game a must buy for everyone.
there will be no demo, atleast no before the launch of the game
which is why I doubt you'll see a demo before it comes out.
your a genius seriuosly. I completely agree, and have been saying it forwhile, a 3rd person shooter 0_o. 360's supposudly 1st "Game worth buying". I'd rent it before i bought it.
With a fu*king HUD!
Well this game doesn't come with a HUD. As said in the IGN Insider when one of the game makers was playing through it.
Anyways this game still looks sweet and I can't wait to load this game into the 360 ^^
Your comments are pure ignorence, You have nothing valid to add to any section but at least I dont want to, nor do my fellow Xbox360 fans want to come and read your crap.
A gamers news site. So any fanboy can post wathever they want. That is funny that the Real Deal once upon a time said that to defend his biased post in the PS3 section. So this is a free gamers site. As for JIN being a St4546 fanboy thats another thing.
Is the same old formula played out a millions times as well, a first person shooter. Bland textures, bad aliens vs. humans, sounds like halo to me.
What are you talking about?, Gow will have day levels with bright blazzing suns and clean crisp clear day maps I'v read many Cliffy B articals stating it. Theres a differance between Dark smokey levels of Gow, and the sh*t green haze of R.FOM and many other PS3 games. http://screenshots.teamxbox... This art is the only pic i have time to look for it's just one small example of what will be in the game. There's real time, time change in Gow so you may be playing a map that starts out in the day and you must hurry before night fall because the creature are more active at night, for obivous reasons. lol
I didn't know there was going to be colorful levels, sweet.
They look freaking good again!
And for all talking about this and Resistance, just wait till november. They'll both be on the demopods and I can tell you which one will be better and have all the people playing
Gears ofcourse. NOt only because of the graphics, but also gameplay. Resistance is just COD3 straight FPS. Just nothing new. Yeah a few new weapons, 40 ppl online. What's new? I mean I don't see the difference between 20 or 40 people online.
Gears on the other hand, has a strategical part of 4 persons, one can snipe, the other gives hard fire cover, one is doing flank and you as Marcus goes straight in on front. That's because there is no 'I' in Gears as is stated in some marketing texts.
The shoot and take cover thing also makes it having an edge over run and shoot FPS like Resistance. It just takes more thinking, it will be gameplaywise, graphics, sound... Gears will knock anything this Christmas and the coming time!
R.FOM is a FPS an is not even in the same ball park as GOW. I tierd of Sony fans saying RALF i mean R.FOM looks like GOW theres so many things going on with lighting ect in Gow. R.FOM, MGS4, and a few others have that Green haze like the contrast on you're tv set is turned up too high, faded, non rich in color depth, with little color, no shine or grittness BS. Thats a fact.
The new enemy design looks really awesome, like a lot better than the same grunts they've been showing over and over. Looks like they fixed the anti-aliasing problems too.
are totally consumed by your Nonsense(360 Fans), i'll join your forums a bit. Game looks nice, i just hope its fun..because the way i see it, its highly doubtful.
Also graphically its good, but i dont see it as out of this world.
Real time weather change, missions streching from day to night, vehicals, Special Cut scene like gameplay ect http://screenshots.teamxbox... http://screenshots.teamxbox... list goes on. Cliffy talks a lot about this game and at the same time says nothing, meaning it's hard to find tid bits sometimes. He said you could be playing a mission and if it starts raining the ground will have real time physics and the longer it rains the muddyer the ground gets and it will effects you're movment. In a nut shell he said the ground will have physics like MotoStorm for the PS3. Can't wait to see what vehicals are used in the game.
the had real time gameplay at E3 and it looked great. hence why many reviewers/websites voted it best game at E3, the only game that beat it in some was mass effect(yup, another 360 EXCLUSIVE).
regardless of screenshots real or not, the gameplay looks fantastic, and this is why it has sold, not from hype. Sony should try putting out some gameplay footage, instead of hiding how "great" their product is.
Jin you talk about 40 players in RFOM. But your forgeting that bandwidth is not up to the level of next gen consoles. Both consoles can do hundreds of people but it will be Lag galore. Xbox people know this since we have been gaming online for over 5 years. Trust me sony is running 40 players online in their closed office networks which have mostly Gigabit lan. When the console finally comes out into the real world we will know how much players the game actually supports. Watch I bet you there is going to have to be a patch. Even with microsoft's 5+ years of online expertise they don't want to push the number of players online since some people have really crappy internet and it just ruins the game for everyone. For RFOM I think a real world number of players of 12 is playable (same as call of duty 2).
"To make sure we run well over the internet with that many players, we have all spent a lot of time running with artificially high latency and packet loss so that we make sure our systems are designed to handle them without looking bad."
The guys over at Insomniac really know what they're doing.
Personally "you're" doubtfull the games fun. People at E3 said it was an out of this world blast, many have said the game feels and plays revolutionary. Maybe you don't like tactical shooters?. I bet you think that standard FPS they call R.FOM looks fun to you. lol
Sony fanboys we know you're jalouse you can all stop asking what's the gameplay about.
There was a demo on E3 SP on stage, there was a MP behind closed doors.
And everybody was going crazy about the game. It got so much awards and this Christmas it'll sell the systems. Period doesn't matter anymore what you ask or say, Epic/MS will make this the best game out there for this year and a long time from now
What fanboy started the trend comparing Gow to RFOM lol. A sqaud based 3rd person tactical coopertive shooter, and a standard FPS shouldn't be compared. Graw and Area 51 shouldn't be compared Sony fans crack me up.
that lost exclusivity. I wouldn't be surprised to see this game lose exclusivity as well.
Gears of War will never go to the PS3. In a few years it could go to Vista PC, but that's only because it's a Microsoft platform.
YOu can forget that.
Gears is the new Halo. Halo 3 is the last one in that series. MS have secured this one with enough money.
And if Epic would try to get it on another platform, MS would simply buy Epic. Money enough, unlike Sony who are in debt
its an MS owned IP.. they are publishing it... how do you expect it to end up on the PS3?
with all the buzz surrounding GOW i'm hearing about the graphics.. and yes, they look amazing. and very smart AI that takes cover just as you do.
with resistence.. i hear about the excellent AI, ai that not only takes cover, but doesnt just stand in a spot looking around waiting to be flanked, the AI does its own flanking. theres alot of praise from www.1up.com and www.ign.com for this game's AI. and then the weapons, very orignal, very well thought out, weaponns that you can't get from another game. and the ai, and singleplayer is awesome and all, but they say multiplayer is even better?
unqiue weapons, and better ai, 40-players online, and unique new multiplayer modes... make the GAMEPLAY just fantastic.
getting back to gow, i like the gameplay, but is it anything new? or at least different? its like killswitch, with better AI, and jaw-dropping graphics.
That awesome A.I. has been done before its called F.E.A.R no game does it better, and i do agree resistence looks good but im still kinda up in the air about the multi-player it doesnt seem like it takes to much skill to be any good at i mean seriously a gun that shoots through walls and gernades the explode and pins fly in every direction no skill at all
1. RFOM will be overshadowed by Gears.
2. Gears is going to sell consoles like crazy.
3. From what I seen in RFOM the AI looks like shyt.
4. Personally there is nothing about RFOM that is worthwhile. I mean it has nice graphics but Gears looks better plus I would rather play a tactical shooter than an fps although COD3 is an exception and I do think COD3 will be better than RFOM although I really cant wait for all these games to come out RFOM, Gears, Heavenly Sword, and Motorstorm to come out so I can see these games in action because of right now dis is how I see it:
Gears is going to be THE shyt, the best looking game of 2006, and sell at least 3 million copies by the end of the year.
RFOM will be ok but will be overshadowed by COD3 and Gears and will have serious lag issues and bad AI
Motorstorm wont look ANYTHING like what has been shown so far.
Heavenly Sword will be good but I need to
see more of the game besides arena because if thats all you do in the game than o hell naw I wont be buying it.
Also if you are going to repsond to me den do it wit some intellect for immature dumbass sony fanboy rants will be ignored. I'm looking at you Hyperbear, Gametime, Jin, and Alien and the rest of your rabid fanboy crew.
Microsoft has only been able to sell a little over 5.8 million consoles in ten months and constantly pushes back their sales and shipment targets, Gears of War better sell lots of 360s. Otherwise...uhh. I mean, come on, Microsoft boasted that they would sell 10 million consoles before the PS3 ever launched, but now they're saying that they're going to ship 10 million by the end of the holiday season (and who knows what their definition of that is).
And since you're our official analyst (yes, you've just been promoted) everyone here will hold you to your statements:
" Gears is going to be... the best looking game of 2006, and sell at least 3 million copies by the end of the year. "
" RFOM will...have serious lag issues and bad AI"
" Motorstorm wont look ANYTHING like what has been shown so far." Hmm.
Then again, your inner buddies have been saying that "If a game screen doesn't have a HUD, it isn't gameplay", so it's understandable why you can't believe the Motorstorm screenshots. They're just too gorgeous. But how you can switch gears and suddenly defend Gears of War screens that don't have an HUD either is a bit of a mystery. But, no harm done.
MS sold 5 million at the end of June. That is in 7 months. That's over 700.000 units a month worldwide.
From then sales have got in higher gear. So at least 700k have sold a month. I would say even close to 1 million.
That would make at least 1.750.000 since the end of June, up to 2.5 million
Combined that is 6.750.000 to 7.500.000 units of 360 sold
Deal with it DJ they hit 10 million before Sony got 500k out before the end of the year
"In addition to shipping 5 million units by June, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said that the company will have 10 million consoles out before Sony or Nintendo launch."
"Before our competition even enters the marketplace we will have a 10-million-unit headstart with Xbox 360," said Gates, whose appearance was a surprise.
Shipping does not equal sales, and it's obvious that Microsoft doesn't want to let people in on what's really going on. It's negative press that needs to be avoided.
Nextgenwars.com actually keeps a good tally on sales of the 360 console. The rate was a lot faster a few months ago, but sales have been slowing down since the beginning of July. Even their manufacturers in Taiwan have slowed down production in anticipation of the PS3 and Wii launches.
No DJ, there have been just statements SOLD 5 million at the end of June.
Furthermore, if it would be shipped and not sold, I say IF, you should know shipping means sold nowadays. Shops don't hold a large number of units on the shelves, they order, sell, order. Just-in-time delivering it is nowadays.
Sales declined? Proof please DJ! More countries are added from Spring on, so even if USA saw a decline in sales, more new countries will contribute to sales world wide. I bet at least 700.000 units are still sold every month so the 6.750.000 number will be done at least.
With Sony only putting out 500k units till the end of this year, gamers will jump in at even a higher rate then expected these holidays. The 10 million mark will be there before you know it
can`t wait for this badboy
somebody??? At least 10 gigs right?? .....can't be 5 NO WAY!!!
Well, folks, I really like this one myself, but Nah, the above two pics really are not doing it any justice at all. Ha Ha Ha I'm surprised that you are basing your comments like sheer 360fanboys on the above pics about how the game looks at all, PLEASE...the first one has the background looking like the one for 'Valkyrie Profile' for the PS2, you know, while the second one is obviously from a cutscene. There have been some images in the past that really look great, but the above two (especiallly the one with 4 characters is utter crap) don't depict anything at all.
The only true good thing I've found about the game is its animation system. The reflexes of the main character are just amazing, and real next-gen, but if you talk about anything else, well yeah, its the best use of Unreal Engine 3.0 that we've seen so far, nothing more...nothing less.
There is that thing that I really don't appreciate, that is its based on a middleware and so it can be run on any machine, even the two core PC, you know. So, there isn't anything excited about it to be running on 360 as it doesn't show anything of a specific system and infact anything of the next-gen except some really amazing use of normal-maps and an awesome animation system. Physics, gamelength, weapon variety, vehicular gameplay, multiplayer, online etc. are the features we have to see and judge upon how much next-gen it is, also that how much dynamic its story-line is !!!
this game is gonna be awesome! dont even lose your breath comparing this to resistance,its not in the same league! GOW is far better looking then resistance,and gameplay wise....GOW seems alot more fun....not just running and gunning like resistance,its stupid to compare these 2 games! by the way the only reason we talk about resistance is because its the only game that look interesting for the ps3!and maybe metal gear,but thats it!i'm sure GOW will be a candidate for game of the year!
I pressed lame on accident trying to read who voted! Personally I can't wait for this game Splinter cell and Rainbow 6 later this year! Heck we might even get lucky and see a new Rally sport here real soon!
This game is going to ROCK. Every single person at e3 was blown away by it, and that wasn't even close to the final build. More details should arise at X06, so stay tuned. I can't wait for november, it's gonna be the best month of gaming ever.
I don't even know where they start comparing GOW to RFOM. Why are fanboys bent on comparing every 360 product 1:1 to a PS3 product. Can't we jus t look at the games for what it is. They say that GOW brings nothing new then again what is RFOM bringing?
Really it should be about the Gameplay. Graphics is just eye candy. All you fanboys/fanboyettes care about is comparing graphics. It's getting old.
This game does look good and ofcourse I'am getting it but sometimes you just have to
Take it for what it is, just a mere "Picture" save the Orgasms for when you actually play.
RFOM will not be on the same level as this game IMO. That 40 player online at once, will not be lagfree. Just cause it supports 40 doesn't make it better. What about the lagfree play Not everyone has good internet speeds. Just wait and see.
For now you shouldn't even compare these two games. If you were to ask random gamers about "RFOM" they probally "ROFL", cause the game is jus tnot in the same realm as GOW. Not saying it's a bad game but I've tried playing FPS with the PS controller and it just doesn't work for me. Ofcourse we'll just have to wait and see...
Quote: RFOM(i hear about the excellent AI, ai that not only takes cover, but doesnt just stand in a spot looking around waiting to be flanked, the AI does its own flanking)If you have done any reading on GOW the AI allows charectors to do the same things in Gears of War. Is this thread about Gears or RFOM?/ Bhai you are a loser go play you're PS2.
These Sony fanboys really should be comparing RFOM to Huxely not Gears of War. lol Now STFU and deal with it. MS and Sony will be neck to neck until people see all what the 360 has to offer.
But Im still waiting for the hundreds of amazing 360 games. The only last one worth playing was Dead Rising. As for sending others to play their PS2; LOL. At least the PS2 is the console for GAMERS this holyday season. It has more games and better ones that the next gen consoles. Also Microsoft only hope for the 360 is Gears of War. I been saying that for sometime ago. ARE YOU FANBOYS THAT BLIND? LOL
tell me what is so different in RFOM gameplay that makes you guys say it has better AI,physics and just the way it plays period,i want to know because i bet there is nothing that GOW cant match and ill prove it so let me know.
back on topic these screens are cool and i see there starting to use anti-aliasing on the game wich is great news because there were alot of jaggyz in the e3 demo but this game will sell alot and alot of 360 period no one cant say $hit else.
I can`t wait for this one!! This is when liquidfartface, queenboy, DJ, jin kazama and the truth buya a XBOX 360! Besides, HALO 3 is gonna own RFOM!
Huxely, Halo 3 & Shadowrun are gonna own RFOM!
pictures of GOW. Personally I think GOW is and will be the sh*t!!! I also think that RFOM is looking bad azz too. Like most people have stated, these are two different games and can't be compared as a whole but only on case by case bases. Graphics, sound, and etc. Personally I would describe RFOM as having a dark clean look whereas GOW has a DARK GRISLY look. I like both. Some will agree, but based on the above comments most wont. I hate it when fan boys try to down games for other consoles. BIOSHOCK didn't get much attention till it was said to be released for the 360. Now its going to be the sh*t!?! RFOM doesnt look good because its on PS3!?! Oh I get it. Fan Boyz are scared to show their feelings! lol Even though PS3 hasn't showed ME anything worth the $600 they are asking, I KNOW they will. You don't become the number one game company for nothing and this is coming from someone who NEVER owned a PS brand and isn't even considering purchasing a PS3 until the price gets down to sub $400(The premium ed). SONY has made alot of dumb mistakes but you can't count them out as just a big flop 360 fan boys. Sony fan boys need to stop being so gullible and realize that other companies make game consoles and have features and games that SONY will NOT and can NOT offer. Its so funny. Everybody says that the Wii is for kids but those fan boys seem the most reserved and mature. Oh the irony. For what its worth I'm a Gamer not a fan boi.
as in they announced Kotor, etc to be exclusive, to end up later not being exclusive. That is all. Sorry for the confusion :)
Honestly though, I wouldn't be surprised if Gears of War lost exclusivity as well considering MS and Vista, etc.
The reason being is that Microsoft paid EPIC to make GOW. They own the rights to GOW. Therefore it will NEVER be on a SONY or Nintendo console. It will stay CONSOLE exclusive but could go to PC. But only unless MS says so. People bash on the 360 when they have a console exclusive go PC but they forget that Microsoft makes money off the PC and don't have SONY nor Nintendo to compete with in that sector. A sector in which they OWN.
If its anywhere as short as Prey was I will just rent it because their is noway a game that takes 4 and a half to 5hrs to beat is worth $59.99 +tax. I don't care how fun the online play is if they want more money they had better start providing more gameplay.
I must suck at Prey because that game took me at least 10 hours to beat.

Won't be long now!
First of all I want to apologize for accidentally voting "lame" on this post. I was actually trying to scroll down with my mouse and I accidentally clicked on lame. lol how ironic, because I usually never vote either way on any news post, I just make my comments and go on my way.....and if you have read any of my previous posts you will know that I don't think there's anything "lame" about GOW. Now my original comments are that this game looks bada$$ but I would love to see more gameplay....I downloaded the one off XBL and you could tell the gameplay was awesome but the video quality was terrible, so I just want to see more.....come on, stop teasing me with these screens!
i much prefer the second pic better, the textures isn't that fantics in the first pic and it's like almost meh, now in the second pic it's just awesome... very rich in it's detail on the locust very nice indeed, and the lighting is just gorgeous. that first image isn't that fantastic at all. and R:FOM will prolly match this game in quality, the hype that resistance is recieving is off the charts, this game will prolly never go on xboxlive until after it's released. a demo really would do more harm than good so they better just sell this game on hype alone. still very impressive an dthis game will be the titl;e for the xbox360 i hope.
I just dont know how anyone can bash either game? first they dont compare, second they both look amazing. I am so hyped for GOW and I have never been hyped for any video game...The game looks phenomonal...it won awards, and when can you go against winning a bunch of E3 awards you all know this game will be just what everyone is expecting...only thing I am hoping is that the game isn't like prey like someone said and that the single player is much more in depth. But I bet it will be far longer than 5 hours because this game looks like it will be extremely hard to beat
I've been keeping an eye on this one, as I'm sure many have, and I think it will turn out being a stellar title. The videos I've seen make the gameplay look like a lot of fun, and I don't the "stop and pop" system is all you have to use, as Marcus frequently uses his shotgun on enemies, so I doubt it will be another Kill.switch. Good looking title, I'd love to play it.
Did not mean to press lame, just wanted to see who voted "lame"lol.
Anyways, the manager from our local GAME Store here in UK went last week to a gaming conference in Dublin and there he had the chance to play the MP version of GoW. Man the guy was raving about it to absolutely every person coming into the store. He said, no frame rate hickups, no latency, no screen tearing etc..
Pure gaming bliss!Man that made me even more want this game.
