    I definitely traded it in. It's gone, and if I'm in the mood for a game with a chainsaw, I'll play doom on Live arcade, not to mention I just bought Doom3 for Xbox, which comes with Doom 1 and 2.

    I thought the press 'A' and 'X' options were helpful; What bothers me was that you couldnt jump. Hope we fight a Burmak

    I love Gears. I still play some MP every once in a while. I love the strategy involved. I hope the second game really gets into the story involving the Locusts.

    not only that, but the ranked shit. i'd go into a room, unable to invite my friends, but the opposing team all seemed to know each other... there was some bug that was being exploited.

    for a team based game the fact you couldnt bring your team along ruined it for me.

    I felt that the teaser was really REALLY lame....

    Generic and cliche..

    The tech demo was pretty good though.

    agree 100%. How much longer do we have to endure that "lone guy with a gruff voice narrating?" The red color and style was cool, but I feel like I have seen and heard that so many times before.

    Which pisses me off, even if the fight itself is reportedly not as good as it should be.

    It was more or less they all got together before making a room, and then the host told the others what the stats on the room they were making were, and as soon as his friends saw that they all joined. No bug.

    I'll buy the second one, online co-op almost always gets me to buy a game.

    I'm learning pretty fast that if they say "Teaser" anymore you aren't gonna see anything too great. There were some people getting teary eyed over the star trek "teaser" and I was pretty much like "ooh, they show parts of a ship!" and was generally unimpressed.

    Anywho, the video game industry has made me pretty skeptical on release dates. Considering the original GoW was delayed what, like a year, it's hard to believe a game with no real screen shots will be out in only 9 months.
