hehe, nope.

anyways, sounds cool. i only got GoW for PC.

to be honest, while the DX10 version has some awesome graphics, this game always felt like a console shooter. probably coz its a port, not a ground-up creation, but to me it just didnt have that real mouse and keyboard feel to it. i dunno if they will bother porting it..did it sell well for PC?

and its nice to see a platform releasing more exclusives. even if it does branch over to PC. and why wouldnt it? Xbox is Microsoft after all.

still, PS3 is better. moo hahaha

I found this lurking under the trailer for this game:


Quote:
First, Marcus is clearly still the protagonist. Duh. But also, we can hear Dom's voice in the background, pleading with Marcus to find his wife if he doesn't survive the upcoming battle.

Is this dialogue meaningless, meant only for dramatic effect, or is it a piece of the sequel's storyline? Could Dom actually be killed and replaced with a new coop partner? We doubt it... but we also doubt the script of this teaser is accidental. Expect a grimmer, darker follow up. Marcus mentions death multiple times and one panicked grunt screams, "Oh no, they're all dead! They're all dead, Sarge!"

The gruesome chainsaw battle between Marcus and a Locust also hints at what we might experience in the actual game. A big complaint about the original Gears was the randomness of the chainsaw. When you went at a baddie or multiplayer opponent, the odds of your saw beating the other guy's saw seemed completely arbitrary and, thus, grew increasingly frustrating. We hope such clashes will now result in dueling minigames, complete with counter attacks and finishing moves (like the blade to the back shown in the teaser

Nice, I GOW was good, I had it preordered and everthing. But the day I bought it was also the day I beat the game (On normal settings). Really short, I hope thay make this one a lot longer than the first.

And the Multi player sucked, Only two players per system ***?

And the online play laged so bad, It was funny whaching my roommate play it online for the first time. He keept aming at the person he was trying to shot instead of aim off to the side ot infront of them.

I liked gears on the 360. It was the first game I played on my 360 and I was amazed at some of the scenery.

I'm looking forward to GoW2. Takes xbox360's owners minds off a possible halo sequel (no halo wars don't count) I'm sure they'll lengthen the campaign and improve multiplayer. Thats what sequels are for, improvements right? I friggen hope so...
