GoW2 fixed a lot of the problems of GoW1, great games overall even though the stories suck. slywink

I'm in for the sequel.  Let's just hope they have a better story than Dom constantly roid raging over her wife.

I'm more interested in the announcement of the Gears of War boardgame actually. Fantasy Flight has apparantly been working on that one for quite some time, but no previews have been shown so far...

gameplay details leaked?

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=242034

Quote
New Locust enemies will reportedly have tentacle-like limbs which can reach out to player cover spots, while COGs will carry explosives that can travel beneath the surface to destroy enemy cover locations.

You can forget about pushing around burnt out cars too - mobile cover will come in the form of a hefty mech suit that offers not only protection but also the tools to dish out some carnage.

These cover system innovations will be on offer in both the singleplayer and multiplayer game, according to the site.

The game will also take place in the summer and feature brand new environments for the series, including underwater, so Marcus will have to break out the wetsuit.

Edge also speculates that jungle or foliage-heavy areas could appear in the game, as hinted at by Epic's Unreal Engine 3 demo at GDC in March.

'underwater' gear would of course float just like the regular gears; like a rock.

Interested to see what they do with the story and how they'll open up the levels.

After not feeling GoW1... I played through GoW2 and just didn't really like it. Thought the graphics were kinda disappointing and it had the "more of the same" kind of a feeling. Hoping GoW3 brings more to the table (from those leaked gameplay details, we'll see...).

Announcements that a game is still a year away aren't all that exciting. It's not like we didn't already know there would be a Gears 3.

That is pretty much what CliffyB said during an interview with him on Xbox Live when he was showing them around the Epic offices.  When asked if there was going to be a Gears 3 he replied with something like "I don't know if making a sequel to one of the most popular games of all time, sold millions of copies, and made a lot of money is the proper business business decision to make.".

Yeah I saw that and thought it was funny.

They're next game should be called Gears Vs. Unreal and be a mash-up of both worlds.

NO!  What was the name of the book so I can wikipedia the story?  NM: I found it

I read the spoiler and it didn't do anything to reference the end of GOW2, specifically:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Marcus' Dad getting on the radio and asking, "What have you done?"

Looks like they're pulling a Halo with yet another crazy infectious and mutating monster army with swarmy elements.  Roll Eyes

Dom's got his man beard going on and a serious case of deathwish going on.  And hey look, a female COG soldier to add some estrogen to this sausage party.

This sounds really dumb.  paranoid

But I wonder who the 4 playable characters will be.  Marcus and Dom are a given.  The people in my horde group always play the same character and it would be cool if we could play them in the campaign as well.  Although I always use Dizzy and I'm pretty sure he won't be in Gears 3.

Um, Cole Train? How could one not be the Cole Train? I would guess the 4th will be the chick instead of that other blond dude. See, he left so much of an impression that I can't remember his name. Hence, replaced by hot chick.

Cliff was on Fallon last night and he talked about the game very briefly and they showed the trailer.
Cliff said the game will most likely be released on April 8th, 2011.

same vein as the 'Mad World' trailer. More emphasis on art than actual game play etc. Noticed 2 new guns- 2x barrel shotgun and some other rifle with a blade on the end.
Will play for sure - I like the series even before this trailer.

Yeah it's all in-game footage so it's kind of like showing gameplay I guess.  I think we all know pretty much what we are going to get by now.  Honestly if they give more of the same with 4 way co-op and drop in/drop out horde mode I'll be happy.  I also love how they include bots for all of the multiplayer modes.  I wish more console shooters did that.
