Even if I have to pay more for a hard copy of a retail game - I would. I absolutely despise it for video games, unless they're small like in the XBLA. Maybe I'm just old-school, but I love my discs.

You mean if the smoke grenades you spawn with have the "concussion" ability? From what I've seen so far, yes. That means 10 people on the map (in a full match) will have it every round, or even after every spawn.

I'm apprehensive of those new "concussion" smoke grenades as well. It can be stuck to any surface, tagged, or randomly thrown. I really don't see why EPIC put this in, the smoke was valuable before (you just had to know how to use it). That's what frags are for...

Well, I have to wait and see how it'll turn out. Oh, and in the videos it shows everyone starting with one smoke grenade -- so picture 10 people on a map having it.

OMG! How could I forget that it's across everything now!? Too much school work is interfering with my Gears 2 addiction. I must drop out, I say!

Anyway, I still have to play the campaign for a bit -- that's just how I've played every other game. Then I can enjoy the glory of online (or, find out how much of a nuisance those stickied-smoke-concussion grenades are).

"I like that when the disk is in, all the information, dlc etc....is right there. "
Same, that's a great feature. Easy way to get new Gamerpics, DLC, or updated information straight from the Dashboard. Wow, it's weird how excited I am for an update ... lol.

"Online; I'm looking forward to the campaign, but I've been playing Gears of War 1 in multiplayer since 2006. I'm too ready to jump into new maps and test out the new netcode."
That is how I feel. Now, if there were two of me..."
Lol, same. I'm just dying to finally play my favourite game with no/minimal lag, in a smooth and consistent experience. It's extremely tempting, but I still have to play the campaign first (at least one or two chapters). Get a feel of all the tweaks, then I can get working on that Seriously 2.0.  ;)

Rendezvous, for sure. Not only was it a good choice of poem, but that voice -- so amazing. Plus, all the action near the end really pumped up the adrenaline...

Do you really want to see a women get headshotted? Whoops ... that just sounded wrong.

It's a shame you're done with Linksys - I have the WRT54GS and it works perfectly (wired) with my Xbox 360. Maybe you need to update the firmware? Or, have you tried DD-WRT?

But I do recommend pretty much any D-Link as the alternative, which they make pretty good quality routers and have a decent price.
