Well at least they're going to make the sequel sound better. The guns in the first game lacked any sort of kick.

This game is going to seriously kick some ass this November.

Yeah, I mean, they were ok, I liked some of em, but there is plenty of room for improvement coming from there.

despite not really feeling the first game, im actually looking forward to this just to see how the story pans out. im hoping its as good as they're saying this time around.

lmao the old gattling gun sound question, I just like the sound when it slices through everything. Predator 1 had an awesome one

I know what you mean. Unlike a lot of people, I am actually buying Gears of War 2 primarily for the campaign.

Since Gears was my first 360 game, oh so long ago, I'm itching for more campaign. The evolved gaming on all levels is icing on the cake.

Now I just HOPE & PRAY for a better online experience. Online play as it is now or was on Gears 1 angered me the last run through. Glitches, their users & horrible patches and Epic's NAZI Gears Forum, um sorry Cliffy Shrine, Moderators, aka The Personal Opinion Gestapo, burned me out to the point that I almost gave up on online gaming... Oh and I will always bitch about how ridiculous the 10K seriously achievement is/was. Yeah after going over 10K I glitched back and got it the crappy way as I felt cheated.

Fingers are crossed this time but not holding my breath.

@TheFuriousOne, Agreed. Predator 1 has the Gatling gun sound down packed.

As a orchestra (movie/game OSTs) only listener, nice that Steve Jablonsky is doing the OST...hopefully it's good.
He did The Island and Transformers and I didn't like the Island that much, but there are a few Transformer tracks i like.

Looking forward to the OST :P

    nostradamus @Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (1 Hour ago)

  • Megido
    Megido The problem with MGS2 is that like 80% of the game is story, and the story sucks. When you get to play, MGS2 is good. (2 Hours ago)

    asdfg @nostradamus: very interesting vid. Had no idea MGS2 had so much detail. Crazy what the PS2 and Kojima could pull off. (2 Hours ago)
