don't you have 24hr supermarkets or stores in America/Canada?

In the uk you can get games at midnight in most places.
If you get it from tesco's or asda it's cheaper than from game or gamestation.

Resistance 2 coming out the same day in the US ?

so like its opening for both of them? lol

its not fair that U.S get it like 4th of Nov and us Europeans wait until the 28TH !!!

Resistance and gears were coming out with a 4 day difference? Not sure but that was the release difference a week or so back.

SL1M DADDY5454d ago (Edited 5454d ago )

According to Gamefly, Gears of War comes out the 7th and Resistance 2 comes out on the 4th. At least in North America. Did the developers change the date again?

fafoon5454d ago

midnight? bad idea
the kids won't be allowed to go outside at midnight.
try midday.

I see this has been turned into a resistance thread but the story is about Gears so The kids won't be able to buy r2 at midnight but the adults will buy GoW2.

This youngster agrees with you.

It's actually not that common in Canada for stores to open up at midnight. The only games this year that this happen for was GTA IV and Metal Gear Solid 4. Usually when there is a midnight launch it's a huge event.

Bnet3435454d ago

The launch of Gears of War 2 is a huge event ...

moparful995454d ago

Ranking The Gears Of War Games From Worst To Best

The Gears of War series has been a consistent deliverer of quality for Xbox, but which games are the best?

KicksnSnares467d ago

Gears of War is my favorite video game franchise, and the Locust is my all-time favorite faction.

My rank list:
1. Gears of War 2
2. Gears of War 3
3. Gears of War 1
4. Gears of War 4
5. Gears of War 5
6. Gears of War Judgment (No Locust in multiplayer was a disgrace)

DeusFever466d ago

Agree 100% with this ranking. The campaign in Gears of War 2 is among the most fun campaigns ever made. It’s been downhill from there.

Zombieburger638466d ago

I’d say gears 2 and 3 are pretty even. I absolutely loved both of them.

darthv72467d ago

2 is still my favorite but 5 is also up there (for me). Then I'd say 1, 3, 4 and Judgement. Tactics isnt the same type of game, so it seems odd to rank it among TPS when its a strategy game. So I make that one all its own. Pretty fun game too.

Jericho1337467d ago

The first is and has always been the best one imo - the story, the levels, the set pieces, the soundtrack - as close to perfect as a campaign can get.

I’d say the series had been on a continual downhill slide until 5.

Om4ever466d ago

Naaaan ... 2 is the best by far

MadLad467d ago


I love the series as a whole, but 4 was pretty by the numbers, and Judgement was just ok.
