Is this free? One of those maps is from the PC version of Gears of War.

^^ 800 points as far as i'm aware.

I'll wait until it's free, which it inevitably will be.
Commented on 2008-12-15 14:28:07
maybe free...

why don't they fix the buggy ass online aspect of this game before they put out these map packs?

800 points for rehashed content and 2 maps that should have been on the disc? No thanks. It's kinda adding insult to injury considering multiplayer was so broken. Now they push out some maps shortly after release and expect people to cough up more money, even when it's not all-new content? Ridiculous. Epic never used to do stuff like this either, it's a shame they've gone this way.

Considering the game operates via matchmaking also, will there be a new playlist for these maps or will it completely mess up matchmaking for people who don't want to be nickle&dimed?

Looks geat, just bad that they costs.. But anyways, nice:D Especially Fuel Station, I think it's feaking cool to play Horde on it.

Which one?

Like any DLC if you dont want to buy it you don't have to, the game itself as a package was well worth the money i paid, and 15 maps we get with the game are more than enough for me.

I agree 100% they should fix the lag before they try to expand the game further, as it is now you are pretty much forced to play private games since the public games are a frigging lag lottery.
Not sure how epic managed to realease such a laggy game, i mean it's only 10 players on playing on small maps it shuldn't be that hard to provide a lag free experience, especially since pretty much every major 360 multiplayer game is more or less lag free online.
Damn shame since it is such an awesome game in every other way :(

These things always split the userbase. Not buying, since only half my friends will and we'll never end up using them.

Semi-off topic: what the heck is up with the narration?

I luvs me some ColeTrain, and I luvs me some Baird . . . but Baird's narration for the "Top 5 GoW1" video spots and ColeTrain's lines in this trailer seriously sound like they're doing Public Service Announcements for Saturday Morning Cartoons.

"The NEXT map is a SERIOUS danger, man! Word up and true dat, look out for the dangerous stuff as you try to find somewhere safe to shoot at the other team. That's the way the ColeTrain likes to do it!! WoooHooo!"

I absolutely loved the gritty, harsh, clearly-adult nature of GoW1 and 2, but these voiceovers for the promo materials are killing me!!

If they spent more time fixing the multiplayer, instead of dropping this on us, maybe people would have a positive feeling to this. It's time-sensitive, this kind of DLC stuff. Of course, in Gears 2's case, the worst possible time ever when your game doesn't work! lol
Commented on 2008-12-15 19:03:56
I'm with the "fix your shit before you lay down some more" crowd.

Haven't played MP, but I've gathered enough feedback on the subject to recognize that "it ain't solid". Campaign was MASSIVE though, wish they'd release some SP DLC for once (at a respectable price obviously)...
Commented on 2008-12-15 19:47:19
Some SP DLC would be awesome, and I would happily pay for it. How would that work though?

This part I agree with you......

....but this part..... ROTFLMFAO!!! hahaha Really? Cause I play a ton of Halo 3, COD4, and Gears online with high speed cable internet and while they're occasionally lag free, most of the time they are not.

i got so put off by the multiplayer aspect of GEARS 2, i don't even play gears 1 anymore.

what was my cure to gears 1 addiction? gears 2... the online just blows, you can't use any of the skills you had in gears 1..

don't get me wrong, i love all the additions, the grenade tagging is one of the best things ever, crawling on the floor to your team mate when down? dude! how could they not have it before!? no active down on sniper? awesome..torque bow headshot? sweet mother of god! but the way you can't choose a match you want, getting chainsawed even when you are shooting the damn mother &!*£E$! with a shotgun straight to the face, and damn annoying unbalanced weapons? yup blows..just sucks.

one of the thrills about gears 1, even through the host advantage and glitches was how you can walk out feeling like the greatest hero alive...dude, the amount of times i used to pop heads, shotgun down the host, take out an entire elite locust horde..those were the days

Gears 1 was all about that, but you can't do that crap in gears 2, you can't even bloody choose the game you want to play..

is this downloadable pack tempting me? nah..but i did manage to move away from gears and stumble on a gem of a game..prince of persia..what a game

This is going to make matchmaking even WORST!

Days being wild I'd say man and thats why im back to gow1. Maybe its world aint that crowdy as it use to be back in days, maybe U cant meet all those crazy gearheads but still it feels so bloody powerfull. U can feel every single shot, every crushed head, every headshot feels so rewarding. Sniper vs torque wars on Warmachine. Flanking those on a balcony in Mansion, bloody duels just to get boomshot on Gridlock etc etc. What an awesome memories ! Each single kill in GOW1 had its story. Now its all gone. 800MP for 3 maps that should be free ? U gotta be kidding me epic.....again. Pffffffffffffffffff.

    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (40 minutes ago)

    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (43 minutes ago)
