Holy hell! November this year. Damn, I definitely need to get another 360 soon. That trailer was pretty awesome. This game better not be a total piece of shit for coming out so soon....

Dude, Richie....I'm gonna be back soon I hope....

Yeah, I about did the same.

Is it me or does the trailer look like those are just the drawings and not animated yet? Or whatever it is. It just looks like a flip book of drawings to me....

Best News of my life, lol!

I couldn't agree more It is quite possibly the greatest thing in the world. I love GOW to death and I intend on doing just what I did with GOW 1 in GOW2 Living it! I shall now go back to Gears of War mode, prepare all friends and family members that from November of 08 until atleast march of 08 I'm not leaving my room.

02-20-2008, 09:26 PM
yes i agree GOW was amazing but how comes there was so many glitches found in the game e.g backflip, skydive, chainsaw glitch etc. This just ruined the game for me as a lot of people were glitching on the ranked matches so unfair :(

Looks like its probably back to dedicating my life to Gears until I get Seriously again! They better do Seriously again with another kick ass gamer picture!

I was never that into Gears of War, I'd rather play Rainbow 6, but the game itself is good. The sequel should be more of the same and then some, probably have some crazy achievement like Seriously... that'll take months to get. Hopefully we'll get some four player co-op like Halo 3 this go round.

And hopefully they won't make it glitchy for some people and not unlock at 10k. Mine unlocked before. Thankfully :)

I should really try to get back in Gears of War. Just like BioShock, I was excited to play it and just when I started getting into it, I played something else and never looked back.

It looks great, i saw the trailer and it looks like there will be a fight on chainsaw so if you have your chainsaw on as same as the other guy the stronger man will pull it out. Sorry i just love chainsaws :D.

I predict a delay Same here. I just started playin gears 1 though, I was hoping to get seriously on it but with all these new games coming out and now GOW 2 right around the corner. It's too late to start.

yeah november is too early. they should take more time so the game comes out better.

November is the best time to release this. It wont get delayed. MS will hype this to death.

I'd be happy with 8v8. If there is like 16 vs 16 and spawning is enabled then holy shit. :O

yeah november is too early. they should take more time so the game comes out better.

It will been two years when #2 is released. And I'm sure it was a month before the release date that the first one went gold. So they will have about 2 years for development time. Look at the difference between COD 2 and COD 4. Infinity Ward had only two years and made an incredible game. It is on par with Halo 3. A delay is possible but I doubt it and expect an incredible game from those at Epic!

I just really want a demo!

Edit: This will probably become a rumor later on. But in the video, it obviously shows Marcus and a Locust having a chainsaw battle. Could that be a possibility in the new game? And is the Locust chainsaw a lancer? Or could it be a new weapon for the locusts that happens to have a chainsaw on it?

The reason why gears was such a success is because of the 1 death rounds that they had, like a third person counter-strike feel, very unique and very fun.. this would just ruin it.

I agree, I doubt it is going to be delayed. Epic probably already started working on it as soon as they released the first GoW. :p

And I would love a demo, Halo 3 and CoD4 had them...So should GoW2!!

It seems like they might try and rush this one just to keep up with big names titles and especially in time for the holidays. Nothing's final so obviously they could push the date back but the first Gears got so much attention long before it first came out and this game is like 9 months away with the first official word on it and an idea of when it'll come out.

I thought the teaser trailer sucked, it really didn't show anything about the game. I hope the game is better than the first, and I hope the online achievements are better than the first.

I honestly think they could just take the same game they created and make new levels in a new campaign, make new weapons and just improve on the multiplayer quite a bit and I would be more than okay with that.

If everyone loved the first Gears of War, they should love a second one even if it's not technologically improved.
Even though I know they'll still complain, but people just expect the impossible.

My God did any of you see the Unreal tech demo? Was that footage from Gears 2? The destructable scenery is just amazing, I really hope they have that in Gears 2. The water was incredible as well.

Epic worked on the unreal engine since the day after GOW but not GOW2. Cliffy B himself said last time maps were released that they weren't finished working on the first GOW so he had no news on GOW2. It may get pushed back but 2 years is clearly enough time as we've seen with Cod2 - Cod4.

On to what Whooah said I agree 110%. If they did nothing but touch it up, give us a new campaign and add more maps I would be more than happy.

Yeah thats true, i wonder just how much better gears 2 will be. I wasnt expecting this game until summer 2009. Im not a game designer on the other hand so what the hell do i know
