I don't know who does their marketing, but they make some great ads. This and the one with the Mad World song are fantastic.

I swore off all Gears games after the crap that was Gears 2 but 4 player co-op, female GEARS, and what sounds like a more interesting experience may sway me...we'll see.

Mad World is the single greatest VG commercial I've ever seen (and one of the best trailers of any sort I've seen). I have it saved in HD on my home PC.

Gears 1 was an amazing game, probably in my top 5 ever, Gears 2 was in my top 5 letdowns ever...

Agreed on both accounts. Finished GOW2 and sold it asap. I'll get GOW3 just to finish the series out, but I don't expect it to be mind blowing...

The GOW series has been mediocre at best. Ill probably pass on GOW3, unless they do something dramatically different, and hire someone besides a high school drop out to do the writing.

I love both Gears 1 and 2 (for SP....Gears 1 only for MP).

Love the commercial...is that Cloud from FF7 that comes in at 50 seconds?

I thought GOW2: Last day trailer was slightly better. Hopefully MP will be much much btter than 2, heck I'll even take GOW1's host advantage now...

Gears of War 2 has been one of the only games that I've ever played the adversarial multiplayer extensively (for me.) I can't wait.

i've always enjoyed gears co-op, and i always invest quite a few hours in multiplayer just hoping it will get better.... co-op is never a let down, adversarial always was.... it'll probably be the same thing this time, only i wont waste $60 at launch.... $40 purchase for me.

Did anyone catch Cliffy on Jimmy Fallon last night? He was pretty subdued, it looked like his stylist and PR rep tried to tone him down a bit.

It was pretty cool to see the trailer on HD on tv, but after the letdown that was GoW2, I'm not holding my breath that we'll see anything revolutionary here.

THIS!^^^

I have VERY high hopes for this game... I absolutely LOVED G1...and G2...campaign...multiplayer was a farce. I can imagine it will be a launch title for me...to finish the story, our clan will, no doubt have a good run in private...but unless the multi is repaired...Iwon't spend much time this time around. We have seen what good multiplayer lobbies can do, (Halo) and poor ones...(Gears/MW2 ...even to this day, the money train keeps rolling, {MW2} and they pay no heed to the people shelling out the dough...) I was AMAZED that Treyarch actually tweeted gamers to find out what they liked about W@W...That shows interest...Hopefully Cliffy got the message last time around...but Idoubt it...

#1. 2 New Weapons shown very cool love the Double barrel shotty, looks like Up close roll and shoot gibs are back, the regular shotty no doubt will fire faster and have better range, I can hear cry babies now "he is using the new Double barrel !"

#2. Lady COG, she looks good thinner than the males thank goodness.

#3. New Uniforms lighter cooler makes them look more human than full suited up tanks, No doubt we will given choices of not DLC options, Less Gear, Less Armor BUT you move faster, more GEAR more heavy Armor you move slower. Or It may be just Cosmetic options like in HALO REACH, just buy cool new Gear for you character.

#4. Dragging, wounded, looks like I hope you can still crawl, when "downed" but now a Team mate can "Drag" you to cover and you can Both Return Fire.

#5. the enemy of my enemy is my friend, Looks like Either HORDE mode just got much more interesting, or We are teaming up with New Aliens against the Locust or we are teaming up with the Locust against other aliens. Which are shinny and smooth and skinny clearly not Locust art or Locust kin, an obvious 3rd party. Tentacles can get behind Cover.

#6. Gun Mods, this has been rumored, but the rifle she hands DOM is clearly modded looks like a Grenade launch on the bottom and a laser sight or aimer on top, not a Chain saw, and its differently colored.

As Long as they KEEP Meat shields I will be Happy.

Gear 2 was such a Generational leap from Gear 1 I can only Imagine what they have planned for Gear 3, and seeing HOW Long its taking them. I am excited.

My sister lives in the same building as him, and apparently that is what he is really like. The whole bad-azz game designer thing is just an act to make Epic seem like an edgy game studio.

I've been a gear head since Gears1 release. Went online with it and had a blast. I really wish they would have unrank matches. I never had so much fun with gears 1. It was a all out and raw game compared to G2. It was fun. I just got on played a few matches talked smack and got booted..lol. Although G2 was a totally different game, it was as they said, leaps and bounds over G1 and it was. But I think the online made it hard to play. Host this, host that. I have to unplug the network cable in order not to lose rank. I can't wait for G3 it's going to be Epic...I hope.

Ditto...after each "title update" made the multiplayer worse in Gears2, I swore off supporting Epic. May buy used when it starts going for $20, the 4p co-op campaign makes it worthwhile at least.

Where did you find it in HD? I had it saved to my old 360 20gig hard drive which got fried. Now you can't download the Mad World trailer from live.

Apparently Nolan North had a small bit part in Gears 2 as Jace Stratton (who is the star of the comic series) and he's being upgraded to one of the main 4 characters in Gears 3. As if he hasn't got enough video game lead voiceover work.

Nope, that's Anya. Gamepro magazine article just confirmed its her. Great article on the game, definitely a good read.

GamePro, or Game Informer? In any case, Game Informer has a 4 or 5 page preview on it this month. They also confirm that it's supposed to be Anya, although it looks nothing like her imo.

Read. Think. Post. In that order, preferably

Sorry, you're right. GameInformer magazine. Apparently things have turned worse and she's been forced to toughen up a bit. She's more gritty now that she's in the action.
