Yes I did for sure. It was my theme at gamespot. Heres the poem from the trailer (not the full version)


I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade
It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath
I have a rendezvous with Death
And I to my pledged word am true
I shall not fail that Rendezvous

not bad, its in the same vain as the mad world one. But i dont know why he dragged the body all that way seemed like there was others he could have used.

The first time, the second, you name it. The chill never stops.

That trailer was brilliant, and kind of made me believe that this time the stroy will be good, especially since Josh Ortega is saying that people at Epic cried, yes, cried

Loved it.  I kind of caught me off guard with the poem. I liked how he grabbed the locust and "mushed" his face.

Just incase somebody hasn't hasn't seen it.
It is one of my favourite trailers come to think of it. I remember watching it through the live feed of E3, and I was like "OMG, this is epic"!

Gears of War has always had great trailers. I loved the Mad World one and now the Rendezvous trailer.

Hell yeah.  I'm playing through Gears 1 for the first time and it's fucking epic.

I have to agree....that trailer was epic.  I finally got around to preordering the limited edition online since i had the EXACT store credit amount on my edge card for it.  I need to stop going to gamestop >_>.

The voice clip is awesome, and the part where the Locust turns its mini-gun was very cool. Still, it didn't have the same impact on me as the trailer for Gears of War 1.

I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air-
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath-
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear...
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

I liked it, but i thought the mad world one was better

however, this one is more related to the actual feel of the game

Trailer was really awesome. Sent chills down my spine. Mad World still was better, but Marcus running with the Locus, with the drums beating. Awesome.

it was one of the best trailer of E3 for me. The Prince of Persia and God of War 3 trailers had it beat...

Better than RE5, Mirror's Edge, and Fallout 3 trailers
