Cliffy's original claim of "Bigger and more badass" did nothing for me, but today's demo looked spectacular.

I'm officially hyped.
 
can someone post the voice over text from the trailer, it really gives me chills when he says 'I will not fail this rondevoux of death' as he runs down the stairs

If the game features a lot more set pieces like that, it's going to be fantastic.

No one seems to be talking about the 5 man horde mode either, which sounds great.
 
I didn't like this environment. It's all smoke and rubble, very boring. The parts of the first Gears I liked the most were like the mansion and other buildings with interesting architecture. This setting is just like a bunch of crap everywhere. I was hoping this one would get away from that. oh well.
 
wow, that was awesome.

Here's a link to the Poem used in the voiceover.
http://www.bartleby.com/104/121.html

Alan Seeger - "I Have a Rendezvous with Death"

I HAVE a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air—
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath—
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear...
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

Five distinguished characters? I really hope that five player co-op extends to the campaign...
i dont' think it's going to happen. the level design just doesn't seem to be built for that many players. at least they announced the online 5 player coop survival mode. i've been wanting to play something like that where waves of enemies respawn until everyone is dead.

Holy shit @ the walkthrough. O_O The flamethrower = pure badass

edit: Did he just say they were going to ride the fucking brumak? Holy shit.

I think the conference video was pre-recorded, the glitch in the beginning was weird. The footage stopped and restarted again..

Thats the failsafe in case something happens. They have the presenter playing on one box, and a "shadow player" on another doing the same stuff - that way if something happens they can just fade to the shadow box and all is good.

Its so crazy behind the scenes at these events that I bet what happened was someone got jumpy (for whatever reason) and hit the switch and the shadow player wasn't quite ready, thereby showing us the intro being played twice.

Either that, or it was pre-recorded :p

That's what convinced me it was real time. Shit like that, jumping back to check points, happened all the time in Gears.

Don't think it was this. The black screen and checkpoint load was too familiar a bug. :)

Not only did they say they were gonna ride the Brumack but Dom implied that they'd already ridden a Reaver!

Ride them Locusts baby!!!!

I want to use that background so bad but it doesn't fit on my screen, it's too small. But also, the gamerpix and theme on the XBLM are godly.

Wow. Looks really, really good.

In motion, in looked a bit rough around the edges, but they still have a lot of time.

He gonna cry in the car
That may be the best boxart this gen.

I hope the Limited Edition keeps it the same. o_o

GOTY 08

And it released on a fucking Friday, genius.
