Gears of War XBOX 360
« on: December 18, 2006, 08:01:04 PM »
I'm getting Gears of War for Christmas, and was just wondering if anyone else has it and what they think of it.
The commercial they did was kind of dumb, so I retooled it taking out the Mad World song and putting this in.

I think it works much better. C'mon Microsoft!

Or maybe its the game they love. I dunno. Just a hunch. I just wish I knew how to embed my youtube video of it.

I actually like the advert.  It's odd that an action game is promoted with a song like Mad World, but here it is:

I just love the commercial the way it is. Once you play the game it makes more sense.  And i must say it is amazing. And i dont think it really matters if you have HD or not on your TV (ive played on both) the graphics are still amazing. Not just that but the story is great and the co-op definatly makes the game even more fun to enjoy.  I now wish all games were like that. The only way that i could describe it is like you are actually in a Movie, and your a total part of it. 

Also a few weeks ago i got a bunch of buddies together and we had 5 xbox 360's hooked up on a network and decided to play gears instead of GRAW and we had so much more fun. If i remember right it lasted for about 10 hours on a saturday. This is one game that makes the 360 worth the buy.  and be sure to be on the lookout for Assasins Creed and Mass Effect. Both of those looks specatacular as well.

How would you compare the GoW multiplayer to Halo 2?

They both are great in their own ways but in my opinion you gotta love the chainsaw in GoW.  sneak up behind someone and chop their heads off, nothing better (in not a violent person belive me).  Me and a bunch of buddies all agree that GoW has a lot better multiplayer system than any other game we have played.

But I heard its only got something like 4 player deathmatch and thats it. No 16 player deathmatch or capture the flag or king of the hill. I don't know... Halo covered on all those things. I bet it is still a fun multiplayer, but I dunno if it is better than the Halos.

This game is amazing. I mean, it's challenging even on its easiest setting, the enemies are actually pretty smart, and oh man, the graphics...the graphics...

Quick XBOX 360 question:

Is there a guide to the must have accessories for the 360 system? You know, kinda like what CNET does for must have firefox extensions?

If so, point me in that direction. I just don't want my 360 bursting into flames, or not being able to use it to its full potential. Also, Is the Madkatz rf adapter for 360/xbox/ps2/ps1 any good? I really need an rf adapter until I get an HD tv.

Finally got rid of my bunk 360 and got a new one. I also got a LCD HDTV for X-mas. GOW on a 16x9 TV at 1080i is freaking unreal!!!  All of the 360 games I have played at high res are absolutely gorgeous.
