    I tried a search and it only yielded a picture of Smasher in a man bikini, so I'll start this one up.

    The one thing about this baby that has me hella excited is the insane 16 player multiplayer.

    Open world, 8 player gangs, who can fight against another 8 player or simply coop and do missions together in the game's open huge world. You can go hunting, raid a town, find outlaws, and you can do it with 7 other friends. Awesomeness ensues.

    "Tonight, muchachos, we ride!"

    It is GTA on horses, brother Smang, but War for Cybertron is Gears of War on Cybertron. It's the fact that you're in the wild west with 7 other buddies that makes this awesomeness!

    Played it at PAX East and had a lot of fun. A lot more violent than I was expecting.

    It may look like GTA in the wild west but I think it had it's own voice.

    Definitely picking it up when it comes out.

    It also has some subtle elements that make it very Western, like the death animations on the badguys. They die in a very old western style, flailing wildly as they collapse.

    i know bro, wasn't slamming it. pretty excited to be honest. ill be even more excited if i can figure out how to make my gamer tag say "man with no name"

    how does it control Fuzz? it appears to have cover mechanics and the like - i just hope they are better than the gta ones.

    I definitely want to give this game a try. I dig spaghetti westerns and Peckinpah movies, so why not a game like this?

    It had decent controls. The one thing that I may have had an issue with is the Dead Eye mode, where it slows down time and you can tag places on people to shoot. I had some difficulties there, but that was still a pretty freakin' cool mode.

    There are cover mechanics, and if I recall correctly you can slide into cover and vault over it. But I could be recalling things incorrectly due to the whirlwind of gaming that took place that weekend.

    All the trailers they have out make it look killer, but a little pixelated for the horses and huntable animals. I just hope the controls are similar to GTA 4's.

    I actually caught a trailer for this yesterday. It hadnt been on my list because I got sick of GTA4 so quickly. But riding around with 7 friends, shooting up bad guys and going hunting. That sounds pretty awesome.
