    The Update for the new Multiplayer Mode Annex will go live at 4 Pacific, but I have yet to check if that is true. Also the usual Bug fixes they say, and a Tweak to teh Boomshot and Hammer of Dawn.

    Also, the 4 new maps, that don't have a date, will follow the Halo 2 Route. Pay for the first few months, free after then. This is becuase MS pretty much stopped them from releasing the Maps for free, and wanted them to put a price on them.

    The first change to assassination is laaame, the leader one isn't a bad one though.

    Annex doesn't sound too amazing.

    Ditto. GoW is God of War. It came first, it gets that cool abbreviation.

    Yeah, but Gears of War is a much better game so it gets to have the acronym. :p 


    Seriously though, their excuse for selling maps is lame as it just feels like a cop out. These maps should be free as they could have been included with the game had they not decided to rush the game out the door in time for last fall's gaming onslaught.


    Annex is fun, but the kills not counting for achievements is very lame.

    oh right, setting up player matches vs ranked.


    yeah that sucks, plus not being able to invite friends to ranked games either. perfect game for clans, but alas.

    I was referring to the fact that Ranked games of Annex don't count your kills towards you ranked achievements.

    Too little, too late. I've long since traded in Gears of War.

    :eek: 

    Gears of War didn't have fighting gods, mythology, and sex!

    But it did have chainsaws, which GoW did not.

    Gears = so freaking over-rated. No map pack will entice me to try that again online. *shudders*

    How, exactly would God of War on PS2 get an update with new maps?

    Maybe for all 3 PS2 owners that have the Sony abandoned hard drive?
