EGM, Gamepro and most other game mags and sites suck. Why I stopped getting subscriptions and stopped reading their reviews.

I rarely agree with most of the reviews.

This game plays as good as it looks. And that's a very rare combo these days.

I highly recommend playing co-op over live with a friend(it's the exact same game as the single player, except a buddy is controlling your teammate instead of the 360.

Using the headset to bark out orders and tactics with your friends is fantastically fun, and it really gets you right into the game. Makes you feel like you are really there in the middle of the battle.

Do they have a death match mode or is it just co-op?

No CTF (hooray!)

Gears of War will have three multiplayer modes which are:

* War Zone - 4-on-4 team deathmatch; no respawns
* Resurrection - 4-on-4 team deathmatch; downed players will revive after 30 seconds, unless finished off by opponents
* Execution - “Kill the Leader”; highest-ranked player on the team is the leader and can pick up weapons supporting players can’t use

They're planning on a lot of post game content, so I wouldn't doubt they'd add on some more multiplayer modes.

The funniest thing I've heard so far was some story on the xbox forums about a guy who heard from his manager friend at EB that on emergence day there would be this huge flood of downloadable content including all these new maps and gametypes or whatever. Its mainly funny because its been my experiance that people from gamestop/EB know little or nothing about anything. :lol:

I hate that damn place. Dude freaked out on me about not having a reserve for FFXII but they still had a ton of stock. He was all "You really should reserve your games to make sure you get them." PISS OFF with your game reserves!!

This is true, but the comment came from CliffyB, although it doesn't state if it's just a bunch of lame gamerpics or new maps/gametypes.

How popular do you think Gears' will be over Xbox Live? What plans do you have to release content after it's shipped?

CliffyB: I hope that the game will be extremely popular over Live. Co-op on Live is just amazing! We've got some goodies in the queue for downloadable content but we're not quite spilling the beans at this time. Everyone will have to wait and see!

I'll definitely be picking this up, just not yet. My gaming cup runeth over, what with FFXII, LoZ:TP, and PSU demanding my time. I think Gears looks amazing, but the other games mentioned are taking top priority.

Yeah...I'm not going to buy it from them now. I'm going to wait until Game Craze, the small local store, gets it. I'll have to wait a bit longer, but I'd rather support them anyway if Gamestop is going to be stupid. And besides, I bet with a new Super Wal-mart (BLEGH) and gamestop, game craze wont last much longer anyway...so sad...

I finally got my copy today. the guys at EB told that ONLY people that pre-ordered the game would get thier copies cause the rest where stuck in Memphis. So Now I'm stuck here at work pulling another 15 hour shift staring at my cubicle covered in GOW posters and with game, waiting for my chance to play.
