Gears of War 2 video documentary

Gears of War 2 video documentary

Epic Games just released the sixth video in their Behind the scenes series for Gears of War 2, this one naimed 'A Pixel Is Worth 1,000 Words'. It presents the graphics and is by far the most impressive video I've seen of the game. Keep in mind that they are showing different environments in the game, and some of them might be more fun to watch for the first time by yourself when you play the game. It's worth a short sneak peak though!

I think it's kindof hypocritical talking about how great the graphics are in your game, but at the same time not releasing it for the graphical most powerfull platform outthere.. But whatever, still looks good enough on the Xbox 360.. I'm really looking forward to playing this in co-op..

I'm really not surprised that you brought that kind of negativity here. After being on the market for 2 years, what game in terms of graphics exemplifies the PS3 as being the most graphically powerful console. As far as I'm concerned, I think Resident Evil5 will be the game to win that award. And you know what, it's on both consoles. The game's development leads on the 360, so find something to justify your argument.

how is that hypocritical? They DID win best Graphics for Gears of War. And you know what? GOW came out on PC aswell. But thats entirely besides the point.

I think you need to figure out what hypocritical means

I guess all devs and game producers should just shut their mouths about their games unless it's running on a computer, give me a break
Commented on 2008-10-16 00:47:55
ok I watched it, looks real awesome quite a bit better than gears 1.

Ohw, and we are not allowed to give any criticisme to all the marketing hyping they do with so-called video-docs like this? Give me a break..

Like I said, I will buy and play the game anyway, so all fanboys are not to worry.. But I won't buy into most of the blabla they tell us in video's like this.. It's still only GoW2, a sequal of GoW1 on the same hardware, still using the same engine, only slightly updated.. And I'm still slightly pissed off Epic seem to have forgotten their roots and only go for the big money now (I expect at least 2 premium DLC-packs for GoW2)..

The guy that seriously thought I meant the PS3 was funny.. Oblivious ftw! ;)

I'm sure GoW2 will eventually come to the PC, even if they are saying right now that it won't. They've said that about many other games in the past, and they all came to the PC. It's going to look incredible on the 360 though, so that will most certainly hold me over til one day i have a copy for my PC.

Blablablablabla

And hypocritical = accusing somebody of being guilty of something while also doing it yourself.

And Gears1 came out on PC... my roomate is sitting in the other room playing it on his new PC right now. Gears2 will come out on PC as well... but right now, MS wants to use it as an incentive to push the 360 into more homes. Building for a console means that everybody who can get their hands on the console will experience the game the way that they intend it, instead of having various system specs across all different systems and some people who can't even meet the minimum requirements. It levels the playing field. They know already what the install base of the 360 is and the fact that they are pretty much guaranteed sales to most of those people... It's called smart business. People will get their hands on the PC version eventually. Until then, looks like they'll have to grab a 360.

While I do not really like the character design the architecture is amazing.
They got some really impressive scenes in this game. Defiantly one of the best looking games of late.

But...it isn't hypocritical. They are talking about the game that they have designed FOR the 360 so they are discussing how the graphics look on the 360.

Cliff has said Gears 2 will not come to the PC Ever..i think that is a very clear no, and its best to listen to what he has to say rather than think it will come to PC despite that
