    Lets hope they don't add DRM's to the saves, like they did on the first Gears.

    I had to trade in my copy because my 360 won't play it anymore, and I wasn't about to erase my save, halfway through Insane mode.

    I haven't even PLAYED the first one yet. *sigh* But looks like it should be awesome. I just hope it doesn't get hyped to all high hell like Halo 3.

    I doubt it. Direct sequels from the same developer on the same system aren't that difficult to produce. It's the same rationale that makes 2 Mass Effect sequels in the next two years possible.

    Extremely good news, I was a huge fan of the first Gears of War.

    I wonder if the chainsaw clashing will be implemented into the game, that looked really cool.

    The trailer is up on XBL.



    Nice!!!

    But is it me, or did Fenix sound different than he did in the first game? I know DiMaggio is still doing the voice, but it sounded alot different.

    It sounded like Handbanana was doing the voice-over.



    Sorry for those that don't understand the reference...but the voices are identical. Kind of takes away some of the mystique.

    Should be good, but you just know they're itching to one-up The Club with an achievement that requires 10 002 kills online.

    Are you going to be getting either one of those achievements? I can't imagine the amount of game time it takes to get 10,000+ kills. At least with GRAW they counted bot kills.

    Yeah it takes a huge amount of time especially since the first time around the "Seriously..." achievement was glitchy, for some people it took way more than 10,000 kills for it to unlock. So hopefully if Gears 2 does have a "Seriously..." achievement it will at least unlock when it is supposed to.

    Could you elaborate further on this?

    Because I lost my Gears save for some reason as well, when Live was going on and off during December. Luckily I had already beaten Insane and have all of my achievements for it.

    Probably not. I chickened out at around 1200 kills for Seriously and took advantage of the glitch. The time I figured it would have taken from that point, would have been about 3 months if I managed exactly 100 kills per day. The Club I'll likely not even put on my gamertag. Gears 2... will probably be left at 950 assuming there IS indeed another achievement like Seriously and it is worth 50 points. Glitch or no glitch like for the first one I won't be using it.

    This is out today, where's all the excitement? Isn't this supposed to be the THE franchise on the 360?

    I just started the first one two days ago so it will be awhile before I grab it.
