 Gears of War 2 Now On Sale

Gears of War 2 is out, and for the past weekend or so, I've been applying the GhostGrip in steady 4 hour doses to keep my hands dry as the online play for Gears is ridicoulous.  Initial thoughts, wow, I really am impressed with the pre-game lobby.  They've basically taken the best of pre-game lobbies and combined them into one.  On top of that, you can practice by yourself or with friends by setting up a match with bots.  This will allow you and your friends to work on your technique and strategy on different maps. 

 

 Horde Mode Yo

Nice.  Also, in the new Horde mode, you can just have the game send you a steady supply of enemies to dispatch.  Now, that all sounds wonderful, so here's the bad, stinking grenades on walls... absolutely flawed and uncalled for.  #1. it's almost impossible to see the things when you're running around trying to find someone to shoot at.  #2.  Just the very way that they work is encouraging overuse and abuse by wussies.  Those two things combined do not make for very good game play.  Till next time,,, keep your hands dry.


Deja vu all over again

 

Yeah, I know, I talk a lot about Gears of War, incidentally someone has tried to point out that GOW = God of War and GEOW = Gears of War.  Whatever man, save it.  So I had a chance to take a brief sniff at Mercs2 and I gotta say,,, it's pretty decent so far.  It moves along good, the game play is good, AI is well balanced, kinda looks like Far Cry, or reminded me of it.  However, for a second when I was playing it, I thought I was experiencing deja vu. 

 

Mansion?

 

When you get to the twin staircase level, it's just like the inside of Mansion on Gears.  I don't know why this is, but it seems to be a trend that's happening.  Games are starting to "bite" on other games.  Just like when rap started surging in popularity,,, don't bite my rhymes.  Personally, I think it sucks and I hope game developers will knock it off.  I don't want to be engaged in a game and then have a familiar scene pop up from another title, only slightly tweaked, it's deflating and destracting.  I had to shut her down last night at that level and throw in Gears and chainsaw some fools.  Now I'm back in Gears mode thanks to that scene from Mercs2, hopefully I can bring myself back to Mercs2 and give it a second chance.  I gotta say thanks to Mercs2 though, because I haven't ran some GOW in a while, and I'll be damned if chainsawing locustesess isn't as fun as ever, can't wait for GOW2.
