Guess the rumor that Microsoft was going to cycle between Gears of War and Halo games was true

As great as the first game was..
Why would anyone be surprised/shocked by the announcement of the sequel?
I mean..
They have been saying that they planned it as a trilogy since before the release of the first game..so, be either this year, next or in 2010..a sequel was coming anyway.

I don't think anybody is shocked by the announcement of a sequel, it's just nice to finally hear that it is confirmed and has a time frame for release.

Mods, I'm sorry but that level of stupidity and trolling has gotten old, joke character or not.

I like Gears. I hope they make the campaign more varied and longer though. They also need to work on the AI, Uncharted puts it to shame. They just jumped over their cover into your gun fire. I would also like good boss fights, and not the QTE type they used.

More color and less one dimensional chars would be welcome too.


Uncharted was a fun game and the graphics were tight, but lauding that the AI was great or better than gears is where I draw the line. I mean with the constant respawning enemies and ludicrous slide animation into cover is not what I call exceptional AI. PLus I would say the worst offender of QTE this gen is uncharted last boss fight.

Please try harder

.....In saying all of this I am really excited to see what Gears 2 brings to the table, it really was the first game that had the graphic fedility and game play to begin this gen.

This must be a lie the 360 has no games coming in 2008 amiright?

Great news I can't wait for some screen shots and video footage. The first game was a blast hopefully the second is even better.

Actually I thought the multi was great. Still the most played MP game with folks here at the office. The big downside was the lack of a party system which they really really need.

Wow at all the pre-emptive bitter tears. And yes, there are dozens of people who thought not only that Gears wasn't coming in 2008, but that MS wouldn't have anything to announce at GDC because they 'blew their load' at the end of 07.

Now that we can lay that to rest, I can't wait for first screens to see how far the UE3 has come for consoles.

Funny, I've yet to see you comment on the stupidity that plague the boards of your own web site. Balayer devant sa porte, tout ça...

Why do we have to turn everything into a "vs." battle?

Console exclusive to the 360, I hope? It'd be a shame if we couldn't get to experience Gears 2 in the same way we have experienced Gears on PC, at highest quality levels and at a smooth 60fps.

I see celebrating and trolling, but no bitter tears.

With MS policy this year, I don't think we will see any in-game footage or screens. It will be just CG teaser. May be at E3.

Ok, I will since you missed my point entirly.

Like climbing out of a hole was better? That has little to do with AI and not what I was referring to.


and ludicrous slide animation into cover

Again, that has nothing to do with AI.

AI stand for artificial intelligence. In Gear the bad guys either ran toward you or took cover and then ran toward you. In Uncharted sitting behind cover will get you killed. The bad guy flush you out and flank you. They make you think and the make you move.

So perhaps you should try harder.. at reading and stop playing GDF.

When the hell is that, though? I heard that E3 wasn't coming until the Fall. Come on MS/Epic, give us something!

A multiplayer where people take cover (Vegas) instead of running to each other, rolling then shotgun.

That was basically my entire online experience with that game.

I love it when some one makes a stupid comment and everyone just bust out with either funny gifs and dumb ass remarks. Just ignore the fucking and don't feed him.

OMG no don't you insult gears, lawl, Uncharted was the suck and blah blah bla!!!

Honestly, both were extremely exceptional games, with exceptional visuals, and great AI, each with strengths and weakness's.

End of story.

Things gears of war 2 needs to improve upon the first game.

-A story
-A game that lasts longer than 6 hours
-A multiplayer component that isn't technically flawed (host lag problems)
