Gears of War 2: Viddoc #7

Microsoft and Epic released a 7th viddoc for Gears of War 2, where the developers spend quite a bit of time basking in their own glory.

Jeez, don't get me wrong, I'm excited about this game, but this was just too much self love for a developer. And the way they talk about it, it's like Gears of War is the single most important achievement in gaming..... And it's NOT! I mean I can't wait to get my hands on this game but this video was just a big ass kiss....

And what's up with those horrible done tattoo's? :-)

I hear you, but i think these Vidoc's are a bit like marmite, either you love it or you hate it :), i do however think they are very professionally done and look very good, but i think 3 of them would have been a good amount to do, not 7 and not released every week!, the good thing is the game will be released next week, so instead of constantly hearing about it, we get to finally play this beast that is GOW2 :)

Lol, lets face it though, these guys have earned it. And I'm guessing if Epic managed to get a bit more independance from Microsoft on this (ie like Bungie with H3) they would probably be toning it down at least a bit from this, and still I have found each of these things useful and interesting to watch.

Hey honey , what are we gonna do tonight ??? We're gonna shoot some locusts ...

Euhm ...the day has yet to come when my girlfriend says such a thing.

It's more something like this : Hey honey what are we gonna do tonight? I dunno what you're gonna do but i'm playing GOW2 and you are going 2 get me a beer .

Mostly followed by 2 weeks of silence ...

:)
Truth is ... I put my children to bed ,then some TV watching with the wife and when everybody is sleeping it's MY TIME at cost of some good night sleep .

Games that look and play that good dont just happen, it takes tremendous skill. Imo, they earned the right to pat themselves on the back a little. And I've heard Cliffy commend other games for being good, so he's not as big a douche as some of you make him out to be.

About the game

    aphex187 Played a bit of BF1 yesterday, still doesn't hold my attention like it used to but by jingo it looks beautiful!! (46 minutes ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I know hdr makes a difference. However, is it worth 1000+ euro's? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea that's sorta like turning up the "digital vibrance" setting in the Nvidia control panel. Without HDR we're just seeing more saturated colors. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (10 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (10 Hours ago)
