No big loss...
Loved it. Easily better than GoW1, and Horde is great fun.

93 score on metacritic. Apparently most others agree.

Yea Gears 2 was way better than 1 imo. Online play was soo much better too. Hopefully they fix the host issues that Gears 2 had in Gears 3. If they do they will have a real winner on their hands imo.

Whats the big fuss about GoW anyway....its mediocre at best imo.

Played GoW1 on X360 and wasn't keen...it came to PC and i still wasn't keen....Saw massive hype on GoW2..played it and still wasn't keen.

What about some frikkin PC exclusives hey Microsoft?, not papped up console ports that did well on a console !!!!11111one

Didn't someone at Epic say they weren't doing PC games anymore and then boom Bulletstorm is announced? Unless they meant PC exclusives.

It looks like Epic shifted the PC porting responsibility to the studio they are working with on Bulletstorm (People Can Fly). They created, or at least finished creating, the Gears of War port. So I guess they mean Epic's core studio won't be making anything for PC anymore, People Can Fly will.

I will be playing Gears 3 on 360, so I really don't care what is or isn't coming to PC.



They will still sell a bunch because people will buy it regardless of whether or not they have the backstory. It's a numbers game.
Ya but doesn't matter how many they sell. They will always yell, 'PIRACY!!!!"

So obnxious.

I would give the same answer if asked if I would ever play another EPIC game again. I'm not interested in mediocre console games, sorry.

There is no point in porting the game at the point since its almost 2 years old now. They already have their audience for the series and Gears 3 will probably do phenomenal sales. The games are solid though in co-op mode. I don't think they are that special but I had a very good time playing both games in co-op mode (at hardest difficulty) with my brother. Personally I'd rather Epic make a new single player Unreal but that ain't happening.

+1

IMO, UT3 was the biggest POS ever. A new Unreal might be good.

gears of war 2 is incredible. Great game with great graphics. I absolutly love it. Its less grim and more colorfull than first Gears ... And I dont know if that is good, but its MUST PLAY game anyway.

And Shame it might not show on pc. Gears1 was ported just like it would be a pc game. Would love to see Gears2 100000x100000 resolution downsampled images with 16xSAA 16AF 60fps.
Althought they managed to squeeze more than I tought from 360 with Gears2. It even have aa!

Part of my frustration is that I think UE3 looks really crappy on console, which is funny because it was made for consoles. It just looks washed-out and desaturated on console, where as the higher res and AA you can force on PC makes it look a lot better.

It is true. Epic is right down the road from me. They pay 25% less than all other companies in the area because its a "gaming" company and they "don't have any money". Trust me, I made the right decision. I'm making a ton more than the funny money they offer people for IT jobs. They might pay well for artists , etc, but not IT.
