Epic: Nothing About Gears 2 Family Friendly

Spong: Epic Games' VP, Mark Rein, has confirmed to SPOnG that there will be filters in Gears of War 2 to moderate more adult content. He's keen to stress, however, that this does not make Gears 2 a game for kids and casuals.

"Nothing about Gears 2 is 'family friendly' - it is a MATURE title. However there are options for turning down 'strong language' and 'gore'", Rein told SPOnG.

The options in question will turn on-screen blood into sparks and will filter out nasty cuss words.

XD Chain sawing people isn't exactly family fun hahaha. Even if only sparks come out! Just keep it the way it is. This is a M game, leave it like that. Theres not much you can do to the game that changes the fact that you are killing humanoids with weapons that are meant to inflict severe pain and damage. Kids shouldn't be playing it regardless because of this.

Its a game with "monsters" and you KILL them. How family frendly can you make a game thats purpose is for you to kill the other side. Maybe they will have flowers shoot out of their heads when you get a head shot!

Make sure this game becomes only available for adults. However, with the high piracy rate there is, I doubt this will ever happen.

Stupid little kids will find a way to play this online anyway.

If the game is intended for adults and has a mature rating, why are they putting child safety protections in the game? That's like having 2 versions of an 'R' movie, one has little black squares over everything in case kids are present.

If you have a kids and they are running around while you are playing you might want to use those options to turn it down a notch :)

I play at night in the basement - after the kids are in bed, and the sound still travels a bit - sound system does not have a headphones jack - or I'd do that.

I actually traded GTA4 because of this. - The cussing was CONSTANT, and though it doesn't bother me, I don't want my 3 year old running around talking like Brucie.
