Gears of War 2 - Epic's Great Sequel News Update

100°
331w ago - Gears of War 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 4.7-million-selling blockbuster third-person tactical action game, one of the most popular Xbox 360 games in history.

Gears of War 2 picks up six months after the events of Gears of War, and thrusts players back into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against a nightmarish force of underground creatures known as the Locust Horde.

Gears of War 2 is developed by Epic Games exclusively for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system. Players continue the story of Marcus Fenix, a reluctant war hero, as he leads Delta Squad on a series of perilous and adrenaline-pumping missions.

Gears of War 2 blends a best-in-class third-person shooter with unsurpassed high-definition visuals, all layered on top of an engaging story of survival, loss and retribution.

Features:

Bigger, better and more badass gameplay. Gears of War 2 builds upon the gameplay of the first title in every way. First, the scope of the action is bigger. New characters, more weapons, nastier enemies, bigger vehicles and grander locales offer players more action, more emotion and more thrills.

Next, every major aspect of the game has been refined to create heightened, more immersive experiences. Finally,...
 

End of Year Exclusives: Sony Vs Microsoft

50°
331w ago - Last year you'll have no arguments that Microsoft's better games line up prevailed over Sony's. You could forgiven Sony and its developers for not having enough time to get used to the new hardware or it could have been that Microsoft just crammed all their five star quality titles into a few months.

Whatever the reason, it leaves 2008 to be more important. With now both Sony and Microsoft preparing great looking line ups for the end of the year. We take a look to find out who's line up looks better on paper.

Sony's heavy hitters are Killzone 2, Resistance 2 & Little Big Planet and to be honest that sounds like enough to fight off anything Microsoft have as Sony are releasing what should be 3 fantastic games.

Although Microsoft will be serving up some Gears of War 2, Fable 2 & Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise to combat Sony's onslaught. At the recent industry press events we got a truck load of information about what both company's will be offering come Christmas time.

Microsoft

Microsoft don't exactly have the massive line up they've had in previous years but come with a few hotly anticipated games. Gears of War 2 is already looking like a suitable follow up to, arguably 2006's Game of the Year. While titles like Viva Pinata & Banjo Kazooie are...
 

Next Medal Of Honor: War On Terror?

50°
331w ago - Let's face it: Medal of Honor is an ailing franchise. What began as a phenomenon on the original PlayStation has declined into a series that boasts little more than average FPSs. Most will agree that the last truly great installments were Frontline for the PS2 and Allied Assault for the PC.

Since then, things seem to have gone downhill, and last year's Medal of Honor: Airborne didn't cut the mustard, either.

So when the chips are down, it's probably time to try something new. According to a portion of an EA survey, sent to us by a reader, and a variety of other sources, it seems Medal of Honor could be getting a drastic overhaul. Apparently, the survey focused heavily on a new concept EA is considering for their franchise, and it centers on what some may see as still-too-sensitive material: the current war on terror.

That's right, if this is true, you'll be seeking out Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan. The premise operates around a true-life 2002 coalition forces mission entitled, "Anaconda," and players will take control of Petty Officer First Class Neil Roberts, a Navy SEAL and a man charged with the difficult task of saving Anaconda from complete disaster. Here's a snippet from the survey:

"In March of 2002, coalition forces moved into Northern Afghanistan to...

Smears of War? 720p Gears of War 2 screens arrive!

50°
332w ago - The eagerly awaited Gears of War 2 footage was released last night to the delight of fans and gamers. What we saw was some great looking action with far more happening on screen than Gears 1.

I was floored when I saw the down sampled video. Upon further inspection of the 720p feed though, it appears that Epic isn't rendering on screen what we might think. Check out these full 720p direct feed game captures. Jpgs are not compressed.

It appears that Epic has applied a strong smear filter to the engine. This smear effect is also similar to the median blur in Photoshop. Why is it there? Is it there for effect? Perhaps. But does it make the game look better? Maybe if you're using lower res textures and lower poly models. View the images and decide for yourself.

More screenshots can be seen at the link up top of this article.
