    I didn't think the first one was that great. The sequel is just a new story and a couple more guns ...

    New story + a couple more weapons? Isn't that EVERY sequel/rehash?

    But yes, the first one was kinda' short. I really enjoyed the graphics in GOW1.

    Getting now , 2 hours to go [​IMG]. Stupid net connection , needs to be faster.

    Least it's region free , makes up for EA screwing over pal regions with dead space.

    :/ I really should mod my 360.. I'm gonna get a 2nd 360 so it doesn't bother me but I don't want to get banned and be unable to play Halo3 till I get the new one.

    Might look into doing it this week anyways so many games coming up that I want (Although I am buying Gears 2 anyway)

    Bull crap, there will so be a PC version. If Microsoft's name is on the box, there will be a PC port, there is always* a PC port.

    *Not always

    I'm still working my way thru the first one (just got an Xbox a few weeks ago and GoW and SWTFU came bundled with it). The game didn't really grab me but it's starting to. I think I found the controls funny because I play shooters on my PC with a mouse and keyboard - that and taking cover is a big adjustment.

    It'll turn up on pc eventually , it's always "not coming out on pc" , then it appears. Just trying to boost console sales and get people to buy one to play it. The piracy excuse is just a scapegoat now , cba to make a pc port or game doesn't sell cos it's shit and it's "omg piracy" , yet perfectly fine to have all the leaks for consoles [​IMG] .


    Good game though , played for about an hour or so , seems like they have slowed it down a bit though , the run doesn't seem as fast , and movement just seems a little slower. Long time since I played the first though , so could just be me.

    Gonna be a good few days , gears now [​IMG] and pal release of dead space at end of the week.

    Saw this release earlier but was too scared to get it since i didn't know if it was the retail version or not and that's a mistake i rather not do again (Damn U Fallout 3!)
    Well anyways is this the retail version? If so then i'll get it [​IMG]

    What mistake?

    The "fake" copy of Fallout 3 works fine.
