The 7,000th Gears of War 2 Blog

Like everyone else on this planet, I got Gears of War 2 on Friday, and it is incredible. I played a bunch of the single player and some multiplayer last night and then woke up early and hammered through the rest of the campaign. I can assure you that everything you've heard about it is true. So it's awesome. The story was much more intriguing than the first, the graphics look a whole hell of a lot better, there's texture pop in pretty regularly but it isn't nearly enough to bother you, and it's not just Gears 1.5. Oh, and Marcus' scar looks disgusting. I do have to give mad props to Horde mode. My roomate and I put it on casual and got to wave 40 before getting sleepy and calling it a night and it was hella fun. If only there were a zombie game with the exact same premise... only you could barricade stuff... one can dream, right? Anyways, yeah Gears 2 is one hell of a game and I have a feeling it'll be what people are playing on Xbox Live for a long time to come. I know it'll be my go to multiplayer game. So go buy it  if by some miracle you haven't already. You'll like it. Unless you didn't like the first Gears. But who didn't?

Mirror's Edge is next. Can't wait. Oh, and Wrath of the Lich King comes out the same day. Dunno how much time that'll be getting though with this stack of unplayed games sitting next to me.

Then Left 4 Dead. Hell yes.

So what does this mean about me that not only do I NOT have the game, but I don't have a 360 in the first place? :P

Left 4 Dead should be a good purchase.  I'm thinking of getting that one myself.  Still uncertain about Mirror's Edge though.  We'll see how it goes.

Yeah, L4D is looking to pretty damn awesome. I'm totally addicted to Horde myself.
