Its in three parts and all well worth the download. Its not a CliffyB demonstration but is from X06 and shows a little more. The grenade throwing aspect is pretty interesting and I like that the HUD is so minimal.

Honestly, who uses WMV's to stream media these days. It's so horrendously slow compared to QT.


ANYWHO, Gears of War looks drop dead gorgeous.

Yep, it's a crapware program...

A crapware programs that streams movies about 10 times faster than WMP does.

Yea I haven't found quicktime to stream any faster than WMV's, but from a software standpoint, quicktime is pretty horrible. Up there with Real player. I still can't figure out how to maximize a damn quicktime video.

As for GoW, it looks great, only thing I find weird is the blood, it just looks weird!

Same here, I never use WMV format unless I'm forced to. QT seems so much faster, smoother and better quality for me. But hey, I use a Mac and all of you use a PC, I guess WMV would work better for ya.

I want this game and a 360 for co-op over live alone. That will be insane. There has not been a good co-op game in YEARS. And why are you streaming it? Right-click-save as.:o

I thought the locust hord only came out in dark places?

The loading seems pretty quick in the game. I also like the reloading function for the gun.

Quicktime is good as long as you use Quicktime Alternative, and not Apple's POS Memory Hog. Oh and QT Streams usually have better quality then WMV streams.

Actually I prefer wmv streams, even on a Mac. They seem to start faster, but this is with flip4mac of course.

I so can't wait for this game to come out.

Gah, just more then a month left for it to show up here!! The wait is unbareble. Finally a game in my taste that uses the hardware! What really impresses is that they seam to have fixed the framerate issues by the look of the videos.

Yea... the frame rate seems to have been improved greatly but there are still noticable hitches here and there... most likely caused by the game loading up the level on the fly (ala Half Life 2 style). I can't wait to get my grubby paws on this gem! :thumbsup:

The next 7-8 november will be busy days for Xbox 360 owners. No fewer than 5 games will debut within two days, including heavyweights like Gears of War and Call of Duty 3.

Gears is Nov 12 US and Nov 17 EU....That's 5 days not 5 months like our competitors.;)

You're not ranting about the freakin 8th tony hawk game which are always same thing over and over (same characters too).
