Wow. What a lineup we have coming our way this fall. I'm pulling out my hair in anticipation for such big titles as Mass Effect 2, Modern Warfare 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Borderlands, and ODST.  But one game in particular has me especially intrigued. and that game is...

Gearheads hit the Epic Forums soldiers! Go, go, go!

Wed Dec 10, 2008 at 05:34:13 AM EST

I know that everyone here loves to play online against other Gearheads in private matches because of the fun social aspect of Gears/Gears 2. But I know that quite a few of us like to play online because we can get full matches and sometimes Gearheads are on at different times. I myself am usually not home friday nights and play in the later pacific hours and often on weeknights. With that said, I've been playing a lot online using the matchmaking over xbox live.

I'm a big fan of the MS Trueskill system since it allows you to play people who are at your skill level and makes for some amazingly close and competitive online matches. But right out of the gate Gears 2 has some severe issues with matchmaking wait times as well it seems people exploiting by standbying. Just this early afternoon I was on my Xbox for about 1.5 hours and for nearly half of that time I was staring at a matchmaking lobby screen. For some reason today it was very slow. I tried several times changing the playlist because in the past some lists got me into a match quicker. Today it wasn't really different but I had the best luck in the Flashback playlist.

Is RE 5's graphics better than Gears 2's?

Fri Dec 05, 2008 at 01:40:08 PM EST

Well today is the release of the RE 5 demo for XBL Japan with North America's demo scheduled for sometime in January 2009. This time, you lucked out, Suns! MS is permitting XBL-users to d/l the demo and burn them onto CD or DVD and play them on their consoles WITHOUT violating the XBL-user agreement. That's right, if you can find a torrent link to d/l the Japanese demo and burn it onto a CD-R or DVD-R, you can play it on a non-Japanese console/account.  

Some of the gamers (mostly NeoGaf forum members) who have already played the demo are already stating that the graphics look better than Gears 2.Capcom is using their own proprietary engine dubbed "Framework/Crystal" and all of you know that Epic is using the Unreal 3.5 engine with Gears 2. I know that most of us have not even played the Japanese demo yet, but the screen captures that I've seen are pretty impressive.

My first post on the new site.

Tue Oct 14, 2008 at 09:53:35 PM EST

Okay, so since the website upgrade, I haven't posted a new diary.

What I want to talk about is all the "Leakage" of Gears 2 info.  

There are new Videos of MP footage, campaign ending, etc....

I will not look at the campaign, but I am sure that there are many Gears fans that already know the ending to the campaign.

Thats too bad....

I wish Epic would have done a better job with security.  I understand that "bootleg" footage out there does help to boost the hype factor...

But why so sloppy?  

I remember when the 7th (final) JK Rowlings book came out.  There was High security that No Leaks would get out until everyone got a copy on opening night.

Why do we have to deal with this?  Epic should have know that security was important?!

Any, it just takes away the fun factor (not looking), because some idiots not only Stole what wasn't theirs, but then Posted it for their One Second of Fame.

Idiots....

Anyway...  What do you think?  Did Epic/MS really botch the job on this?

Have you peeked?...  ;-)
