Gears of War 2 lead developer Cliff Bleszinksi describes the benefits of the Unreal Engine 3, destructible environments, multiplayer chainsaw duels, and explains why you won't be able to customize your guns in Gears of War 2.
Gears of War 2 will be one of 2008's biggest disappointments by far. Xbox 360's entire lineup from June on foward looks to be extremely disappointing. This is primarily due to Microsoft's console running toward the end of it's course. It's painstakingly obvious that PLAYSTATION®3 is the greatest console to fit your gaming needs. With Xbox 360 looking to be obsolete in the next couple of years, it's almost certain that Gears of War 2,3 and 4 will appear on PS3. $niper
Honestly, the best part about your comment, was the fact that you were completely serious.
I guess your head doesn't hold any brains at all, but is just one big tumor.
Oooops, clicked on the open zone! Very obvious from that first comment. So this is it, huh? I like it.
The option to invert your up and down controls was also a plus. Looks like Gears2 is going to get better and better if they infact do mimic the type of controls Uncharted had as an Option for players who find it less clunky. Its good to see developers constantly upgrading things and not considering them done. Sad to see no weapon customization though, and I guess 5 vs 5 is confirmed for the multiplayer. Which isn't an issue, but I cant see how thats going to improve much more over 4 vs 4 as far as scale of battle goes. Either way, you are playing agains 5 other dudes, or 9 other dudes. Not quite a full scale war like he keeps saying. I hope they quit development on UT3, and just focus on gears.
..... just waitin for icewakes comment!!!
".We have this whole chart of things we've announced and things we haven't..." "There are some really nice surprises that haven't been announced." Jeeze..how many surprises does this guy have..... "Eight billion tasks have been cycled on for improving the cover system. You can interrupt the swat turn and go right into a roady run so you're not stuck swat turning. The angle of cover entry for roady run has been tweaked so you don't necessarily get cuked into cover as often when you roady run. Mantling's a little more crisp. Just evading into cover is more crisp. Every single last action has been tweaked. The angle at which you cover slip when you move forward has been tweaked. Every single bit of the cover system has been massaged this time. I went back and played Gears 1 and I still think it's a great cover system, but what I missed was tremendous and I'm so happy with a lot of the results that have come out of the tweaking for Gears 2." And to think some say this game will not Improve..Cannot Wait.
Definitely a goty 08
MGS4. You lose.
Fable 2 will probably rank higher than MGS4 lol.
Resistance 2 stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
MGS4 and LittleBigPlanet Fable 2 ? hahahahahahahah
Man you can feel the PS3 fanboy anger and nervousness due to all the news thats been coming in lately and E3 being around the corner.
Let's look at all the "news thats been coming in lately": GTA IV is released. PS3 version blows away 360 version. Ninja Gaiden 2 is released. The second biggest 360 game of the year turns out to be a huge flop. Bioshock, by far the best game ever released on 360, is confirmed for the PS3 with numerous improvements. Metal Gear Solid 4 is released. Instantly considered one of the greatest games of all time. Wow. So much great news for xbox fans. The only way it could get any better for you right now is if M$ quits the game industry tomorrow.
I think POG just got....OWnD
Doesnt matter what kids think, it'll be awesome. The first one was good, and its online multiplayer was VERY popular. And it was a last minute add-in. I'm more interested in how the Campaign Story will pan out, but the multiplayer looks like it getting better.
Man oh man, this game is gonna rock ! Last year was awesome on 360 with Bioshock & Mass Effect, but Gears 2 is gonna Rule !!!
WTF is that C-Viper kid talking about Uncharted for?. Almost like he's almost suggesting the cover system in Uncahrted was good and its great how Gears uses something that works lol.
Maybe you should read the article next time. Then you would know what Cliffy said about Uncharted. You really are a complete moron. Isn't it your silly ass xbot duty to worship everything about Gears2? And you dont' even read the article? I mean we all know you are a die hard fanboy, but are you even a gamer at all? Interesting interview--for gamers. IF you read it. When you wake up, does it hurt your head to realize how stupid and pathetic you are? Or have you not realized it yet? Sorry for the unfortunate life spoiler.
Yes... this game was be good. Gears 1 completely blew me away when i first saw it, it was such a leap in terms of graphics that it may be a while before another game can really take my breath away again like that game did. And the gameplay of multiplayer is soooooooo addictive, and it was truly the first game that i took personally when i got chainsawed or curbstomped.
Gears of War will own all all console exclusives this year. It will show MGS4 how a true AAA title sells one day ONE, completely dominating MGS4 sales to date. You have idiots on this site that talk out of their azz like D1ckSucker, i mean DarkSniper and pimpstation, but come the release of GeOW2, all sonydroids will be envious once again and probably run out and get a 360 because they can't take it anymore. on that note... JUDGEMENT DAY !! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahahahahahahahahaha so what now kiddies? GT in 09? FF in 2010? ROFL!!
Definately my #1 most anticipated game of the year. Tired of hearing about all the MP options and want to hear more about the campaign.
LOL @ the whole Judgement Day thing. Fishheads crack me up. I know it's not fun to laugh at the mentally ill but..
i love purple. yes gears will sell like crack. Id prefer it to be a great great game that sold ok over a decent game that sold amazingly. maybe it will be/do both
"So you played Uncharted and thought their cover style was a good idea? Well, we thought some players would want it. Personally, I can't stand it. I like our system, but it's okay to have that option. I don't like my Y-axis inverted but some people do, so we want to make everybody happy." ---droids got pwned.
