Epic Games interview

Epic Games interview

Microsoft's and Epic Games' Gears of War 2 is set to be released on November 7th in Europe, and here is a long interview covering it. Microsoft's XCN let several European websites submit questions for it, including us, and it ended up with a great variety of interesting questions. Answers are provided by Cliff Bleszinski and Rod Fergusson.

Indeed, I think this game is going to rule. Good interview too.

A longer campaign mode sounds great to me as I didn't like the multiplayer modes at all in the first game but the single player in solo and co-op was great fun. Just too short.

Oh, and Anya's model getting upgraded is good as well. There was something off about it in Gears 1...

Damn if only they had the replay camera system Halo 3 has..

Image freeze framing a grenade tag explosion against 3 locust or cogs? a boom shot to 4 players..

Your friend diving in front of you to only have the locust's head behind him exploded to smithereens

Or better yet, diving from an explosion of 4 or more locust stuck together, only to notice one torque has taken out all of them..

man, it would've been EPIC!
