So wait, Dom had kids....and they're dead?

#1 Posted by REforever101 (258 posts) -

yea, thats messed up

he didnt seem emotionally scarred in gears 1 though. I'd rather they keep it that way too. I mean, i dont want epic to suddenly change the way Dom is just because they added in that plot point

maybe. oh and yea....its been said my cliffy b that his wife vanished after their kids died

I think the entire point of this game is how Dom is emotionally scarred. And is trying to find his lost wife. He seemed all business in the game, but now maybe they will show some downtime where Dom acually talks to the squad about what happened

He showed emotional scaring in Act 2, he just hides it.

I've read about this before as well so they're not really spoilers for the next game but yeah, that seems a bit messed up but I wish Dom talked more about it or gave hints.

Gears isn't very good at providing any backstory.  Hopefully Gears 2 changes that...

gears of war having a storyline isnt normal.
But on meth, it is.

Sorry.

There was a screen play going around on the internet a couple months ago for the gears movie. It said that Dom was having lunch at the park and his kids were on a jungle gym and an emergence hole opened up underneath it. But I don"t know if the screen play was real or not, so it might be different in GOW2.

So Dom is pretty much The Punisher?

Rock.

I'm all for some emotional story elements, but I just hope the game doesn't get too sappy.

You could've added *spoiler*

Not all of us sit on the computer all day trying to know everything about a game before it comes out.

I'm surprised people don't even know the whole story of Alan Wake yet..

To me it looked like he was dying as Marcus was rushing in.

Erm... I wish Cliff didn't mention it in an interview, that would have been a great plot point to find out in the game... So shocked to hear that, pretty sad to. :(
