Morgan brings you an early look at some of the sweet new features that can be found in 'Gears of War 2' for the Xbox 360.
Wake me up when they show a AAA title
I bet you cry yourself to sleep.
and ps3 gamers don't buy 360 games for their ps3s....NOR will they say anything good towards them, because there on 360 right?
Like most people did with Gears1, and the rest of the 360's exclusives. No need to upgrade since they appear to be using the same Unreal Engine from decades ago. Gears2 is sure to be a fun game, but its literally a rehash of the first one. I mean G4TV has to pretend "Wait if you think it look just like the first one.. buh uhb.. hold on' Because it does. Making the action take place on little Island maps that are no bigger than the maps in Gears1 isn't fooling anyone. WOW look at that amazing backdrop. That you are never going to venture to. I'll be happy after everyone gets gears2 this year, and realizes that was the last good game the 360 put out in its lifetime.
When is the PC version coming out? What are the specs for your PC? Does your PC boot up a game as fast as a console? Will the PC version have screen tear...no matter what settings you put it on? Has your PC recovered from that time you told it you were going to buy Crysis? Does it support achievements?
No Live. You won't have to pay to play online. Peer to Peer is free everywhere in the world except some places where idiots don't know any better. Gears of War(PC) came with achievements, not sure why they wouldn't repeat it this time around. They were the same as the 360 one, well minus the Brumak fight. Jenzo, you are bull$hitting up the wrong tree with me. I have my PC hooked up to my 5.1 theater & 1080p Projector. It stays on all the time, and yes. Games like COD4/Bioshock/UT3/Gears load very quickly because you install most of the game on your HDD. There is no screen tearing in Unreal Engine titles with a basic videocard its not that advanced of a game. Stop trying to bash PC gaming, you just come off sounding completely retarded. You can use your 360 controller with most Games For Windows, and it works fine. Crysis is one of the most amazing things to experience in the world of gaming. Its a shame everyone cant, but thats life. I mean, you get to pretend Gears of War is the best looking Unreal Engine game out though, right? lol. I mean Jenzo, are you really trying to bring up screen tearing? I mean.. honestly.. do you think the 360 is amazing hardware or something that trumps a PC powerful enough to run Crysis? Please dude. Tell me you are joking?
@ VIper "He like most people will probably pickup the exclusive PC version which will have more features and run in a higher resolution." Well... For Gears 1 PC gamers had to wait a full year. I am not into playing old stuff, I want the new games. But I guess PS3 owners are used to play old games: Lost Planet --> 2 years after 360 version Oblivion --> 1 year after 360 version Bioshock --> 1.5 year after 360 version Dirt --> 0.5 year after 360 version Plus you forgot this: Epic isn't very happy with sales on PC. UT3 sold sh!t compared to the console versions. They even said that Unreal Engine 4 will be console only. They haven't announced Gears 2 for PC and MS just declared they want more 360 exclusives to really drive the sales. 1+1=2 Epic will be happy with more 360 sales instead of PC piracy and for MS it would drive the PC owners that played Gears 1 and want Gears 2 to buy a 360 for that game. Too bad PS3 kiddy. You fail over and over again.
I remember playing a better version of Bioshock on PC, I remember Playing a better version of Lost Planet on PC, I remember playing a better version of COD4 on PC as well as a better version of Mass Effect. Which matters to me, because I'm a gamer, but I also have a job. So I can afford to wait for the superior version of PC titles to come out of the quick out the door console port. I think you just stumbled into your own BS trap mate. Its called self ownage. You can pretend that you are an insider at Epic, but you aren't. You are just some dude that trolls n4g with different names. 1 is Power of Green, and the other is "Themartatxboxkings" a joke of a website. So I understand why the delusions run so deep.
@CViper - Even if their games get pirated they are still cheaper to develop and sell in much larger quantities on the 360 than on the PS3. Has your beloved MGS4 even reached a million yet?
@ Vipi So you haven't read Epics own comments on the Unreal 4 Engine probably being console exclusive? mmmmhhh "I remember playing a better version of Bioshock on PC, I remember Playing a better version of Lost Planet on PC, I remember playing a better version of COD4 on PC as well as a better version of Mass Effect. Which matters to me, because I'm a gamer, but I also have a job." Right. Ofcourse the PC versions will always stay on top with resolutions also compared to the PS3. Question is not which version is better, question is which platform brings in the $$$$$ And fact is that the PC doesn't have to many paying customers. DMC4 is another game that suffered, we just read recently. Companies will go console exclusive because of that. No need to get the PC version out anymore if it just kills sales. Doesn't matter if you specific pay for them. "I think you just stumbled into your own BS trap mate. Its called self ownage." You sound like a very angry teenager that thinks he is always right. You're also comparing your scooter to your friends which one has the most bling bling right kid? "You can pretend that you are an insider at Epic, but you aren't." Again, go read up their own words about Unreal Engine 4. "You are just some dude that trolls n4g with different names. 1 is Power of Green, and the other is "Themartatxboxkings" And again, you're wrong. But as I said, because your weakness of your posts, you need to grab on something you believe in. If that what makes you feel better while you cry yourself into sleep, be my guest. You sound silly dude, and you probably are. Go watch your MGS movie again on your BluRay player while we 360 owners keep playing the best games. Oh and one thing: Little Big Planet is the only interesting game on your console although it looks a bit kiddy.
This game does look great.
but id be lying.
The game looks as great as the first one did. Unfortunately, it doesn't look much better... I guess I was just expecting more since it's coming out 2 yrs after the first one? Gears was the sh#t when it first came out b/c there was nothing like it on current consoles... but after the release of Uncharted & MGS4, this footage doesn't look quite as exciting. Still looks like it'll be fun though.
only 4 months away.
Crap graphics Looks like sh!t
Are you blind?
The game really is looking fantastic! I shouldn't have expected this to be new footage but... man, I really hope they release a bit more soon. The multiplayer is the big draw for me this time (even though it wasn't on the first). I'm glad they seem to have balanced things out a lot more on that side. Apparently getting rid of the whole host advantage thing and making it alot harder to just charge right at someone. I'm really looking forward to this baby! It's almost the whole reason I'll be getting an Xbox Live account. I still don't like having to plop down the $50 for it but it'll be worth it to play this game and a few others like Team Fortress 2 (have it) and Virtua Fighter 5 (getting it soon). All in all I'm gonna have a ton o' stuff to play on my consoles. It's gonna be grrrreeeaat! Well, except for my poor wii. *shakes head*
Sooooo freaking annoying. Ill download it. Not buying this year because of Queefy's attitude.
gameplay wise it looks a lot better and seems like theres a lot more you can do now to defeat the enemy. Whoever said its just a mindless shooter try playing it that way on anything but the easiest difficulty and you will get owned if you just run around. The graphics look a lot better, for those played the first you can tell its a lot more detailed now. The first IMO didnt have such great graphics just good character models, it was just overhyped like most 360 games in 06 and 07, but I think this time the hype will be justified.
why do people put Motorstorm on a list of must-have tittles ?? as for MS not having plans for 09..ROFL
best offroad racing games ever. It has great graphics, lots of racing action and mulitplayer is a blast. Besides grid, its one of my favorite racing games. Just my opinion, but you asked why people would put it on the list of wanted games. I also like flatout fot the 360!!!!
xbox = epic fail
Greatest game of the year. Will sell 8 million units in its first week. No question. MGS4 is still trying to sell 3 million, lol.
CViper "how about.. oh I dunno.. Splinter Cell => Delayed Alan Wake => Never coming out Warhounds => Never coming out Huxley => Delayed, and more than likely never coming out FF13 => Coming out after the PS3 version is done." Well Wardevil ???? LA Noire ????? Getaway 2 ????? Tekken 6 Home => Still waiting
i think it looks like the original and i hope the story is better.
no story was my biggest complaint of gears1 besides weak final boss/level. a story would add more immersiveness. give players a purpose other than just shooting. i want more background on the locust.
xpro pt.. don't waste your time with him ps3 is getting their first decent lineup of games now and they are all yanked up for those games ..when you own a console and literally don't play nothing for more than a year .. every sudden decent game is celebration even sequels to decent/average games This is somewhat closer to what the ps3 should have been at lunch .. kinda late to the game party ..but hey ..nice blue-ray player
you would know what that feels like wouldn't you? first year for 360 was terrible. not until end of that year did you get gears. so calm down with the fanboy crap.
GeOW 2 already has the best "Graphics" for any console this year (IGN). The gameplay is looking rock solid as well as the rocking multiplayer. GOTY contender easily. This game will easily score better than RFOM 2, just like the original GeOW did with the original lackluster RFOM. GeOW = AAA RFOM = AA Any questions???
This game beats any game on PS3...
If you want great graphics, then you will have to play Killzone 2. If you want more then a couple people on screen then you will have to play killzone 2. If you want small pretty battles, then go play Gears of War 2. I will be playing both, cause I'm pretty sure they both will be top notch. Risistence 2 will also rock!!!!!
Sorry to burst you bubble, but GeOW 2 already has the better graphics according to IGN. Though, I think they are both very good graphically. And the new update to the Unreal engine also always for over a hundred independant "characters on screen" in GeOW 2. There is already footage with this. Multiplayer, just depends what mood I am in. Bigger battles, I will take COD 4/Killzone 2, smaller battles, then GeOW 2. I agree though, both Killzone 2 and GeOW 2 will be great, I am slightly looking more forward to GeOW 2 though, but Killzone 2 is a very very close 2nd. As for Resistance, hopefully they improve that title, as it didn't impress me much at all. It was very generic and the online was a less than exciting.
Just plain Sexy
I dont care wheater your a 360 fanboy or a PS3 fanboy Resistance and Gears will both be great games. I am buying both of them myself. And for one thing Gears 2 looks better but the game will also be shorter because more space on the DVD is needed for grapics. Resistance 2 will be as long as the first one because of its storage device although it may not look as great because THATS NOT WHAT INSOMNIAC WANTS TO DO!!!! lol. Besides why in Gods name are we comparing a 3rd person shooter to a 1st person shooter anyway
It is better then the first in every way but what I found lacking in the first was it was short and the story was mediocre. If they fix those 2 areas in this game then it really has out done the first gears because the gameplay and graphics are already kick a$$. Definately must buy game on day 1.
I didnt like the first one was boring, i dont know why this and halo get so much hype.
everyone on this site knows I'm a Gears fan...loved the first game...it was the first game this generation that I thoroughly enjoyed...as of right now, this is my most anticipated shooter this year, with R2 at a close second...just 100% bada$$...
