Hey, Look! Retail Gears of War 2

This message is less about any sort of "we have it" bragging and more to let you know about our coverage plans.

Mail call! Along with retail copies of Red Alert 3 and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, this thing showed up, too...

This controller does nothing to this box, no matter how hard I try.




























Expect a review on Monday. Oh, the red controller is not part of the Monday embargo, so I guess I can tell you all about it. It's red? You heard it here first.

Nice man, to bad I only have a ps3, Killzone 2 FTW!

Posted by SilverArrows

Sweet. I'm excited about the review. Is there any Previews etc. that might up before that ..... i can't get enough of Gears right now :)

Posted by dotxhideki

I bet it'll get a 5 star rating. On a side note, I heard that the red controller has squeaky control sticks.

Posted by Darknaut

If only I had not spend my money on all the other glorious titles that came out this month I'd have reserved that one too. Damn. :(

Posted by erinfizz

Shows what I know about the 360...I thought at first that maybe you just liked to match your controllers to your outfits.  :)

Posted by fearlessidiot

Wait is this a review version, because i was under the impression that you already had a review build. If its just a FLuke that they shipped it early, I HATE YOU. i don' t own a 360 though, but that trailer may push me over the edge. The red controller also comes with a red battery, You heard it hear first.

9.6 stars. You heard it here first.

Posted by ZeroGravX

I see what's wrong there! The controller has to be on first!

Posted by AdventChild

Meh.  I wasn't a huge fan of the first one.

Edited by JoelTGM

Thanks for the fast review.  My EB Games said they're not decided yet if they're selling it at midnight :(

Posted by dsplayer1010

Damn you're lucky.

Posted by dtran1212

this should get 4/5 stars

Posted by ep_driver

I think the first one was an average game, nothing spectacular, nothing terrible. Anyone wanna gift me a copy of Gear2? I'll take a free copy. Also, that red contoller is wack.

Posted by samcotts

I'm actually feeling excited for you.

Posted by mordecaix7

Schweet.  Got it on reserve.  Can't wait for next friday!

Posted by Impossibilium

Pah, you might have a retail copy but do you have a large plastic gun that makes fake chainsaw noises to scare/amuse small mammals?

I think not.

Posted by Pibo47

"this should get 4/5 stars"

Why should it? Have you played it? I have, and this very well could be a 5/5.
Posted by WholeFunShow

OMGZZZ A RED CONTROLLER!!!! & some kind of sequel which ought be okay I guess...

Posted by Ma7moud

I hope it gets a 5, I'll will be getting both though, the red controller and Gears 2.

Posted by BagManForHire

RED controller FTW!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Sweep

I heard that anyone who plays Gears Of War 2 before November 7th is eaten alive by grasshoppers.

Thats not a metaphor kids. Actual grasshoppers.

DONT SAY I DIDNT WARN YOU JEFF!

To tell you the truth, with all the games I've recently purchased, I totally forgot Gears of War 2 is almost here. There's another $50-$60 down the drain for me...

Posted by CaleShepard

I've been watching a live broadcast all week  lol

Posted by keyhunter

I was under the impression that red contollers haver been out for months.

Posted by krazedkaoz

Posted by Milkman

The closer this gets the more excited I become for it.

Posted by HatKing

"It's red" mind=blown.

Posted by MOLE

I hope so, becuase I need some visual learning here

Posted by John

Actually, it's red AND black.

Posted by noble_art

Feel sorry for the folks that don't have a 360.  

Posted by killdave
