Posted By: Jeffrey Kanjanapangka - Friday, October 24, 2008 11:52 AM

In the video below, Marcus Fenix and the boys of Delta Squad take a minute for themselves to "stop and smell the roses" in this TV spot for Gears of War 2.

With humanity in one of its darkest hours, could this be the "last day" they see the surface?  Gears of War 2 is a tactical third-person shooter from Epic Games exclusively for the Xbox 360. The game ships November 7th.

gears trailers are very emotional and awesome cant wait for November 7

Best commercial ive seen, Mad world was great as well, but you can't beat the origonal of many things, everyone is going to say (most of the tmie) that the first of a game is better then the 2nd of a game, so mad world does hold that spot, but taking in this new atmosphere of gears, i think this video very well defines it.. :) awesome commercial,

(p.s.) you dont see bad ass commercials like this for Resistance 2 .. play'nstaygay 3way FTL

GoW game of the year :3

You people make me want to kill myself.

Stop Nagging!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Especialy you RROD, you are the worst. you are a huge ass nerd and everybody knows it. Stop talking about video games, you make yourself sound ridiculous. Im only 14 and I probably have more common sense than you. you need to get out of your mothers basement and get a job (more perfebly a life). Im fourteen and I allready have a job, I also play football hockey and baseball and I get good grades.

Why dont you go outside and do some of those things? why spend countless hours rotting in front of a computer nagging about video games?

Get A Life You Computer Maggot!

That was a cool trailer.

Posted by newbman - Saturday, October 25, 2008 10:02 PM
xEternalx is right. So RROD, what have you seen better? It's called marketing. It's the same everyware.

Posted by xEternalx - Saturday, October 25, 2008 6:36 PM
RROD needs to get a life.

No one cares which console is better or anything. Just appreciate how far we've come in the gaming industry and the fact that in this economy the industry is still going strong. Bashing another console will just kill the industry. If we just had a PS3 or an 360..that's a monopoly. We need all 3 of them. Drop it, acting like 12 year old's comparing there shoes. They both do what they need to do. Zomg no one cares kkthxbai.

@ Bookshelf

I's not about looking or playing the best. It's about profit. Copies of Gears 1 were pirated more than it was sold. The way Cliffy B looks at the situation, why would he make a free game for pc gamers?

Resistance 2 will not be better than Gears of war 2. I mean, I saw many Resistance 2 gameplay so far and all I can say is that I'm not impressed. Graphics looks like crap, explosions lame, I think the first Resistance will be better. The true PS3 FPS that did impressed me is Killzone 2.
Killzone 2 is so awesome. Wow!

Posted by REDZ3RO - Saturday, October 25, 2008 7:19 AM
I think what gets me with this video is just the fact it shows the other side of war.

And just knowing that you are about to go into a battle, and it very will could be your last.

Deep stuff.

Posted by RedRingsOfDeath - Saturday, October 25, 2008 6:21 AM
OMG!!i think this is one of the best commercials that epic had made for the game.... its on a emotional level.


i am not RROD i have an s in my name and i also made this account a year ago..so don't get me confused! PLEASE!

Posted by xmywreckingballx - Saturday, October 25, 2008 5:46 AM
it's the same trailer as the one for Gears 1. The "Bad World" trailer, it's just like it I love it. The Bad World trailer got me pumped for the game. And now this trailer is pumping me up too! I wish I was working full time hours right now. I would so buy it.

Posted by sps73 - Saturday, October 25, 2008 5:39 AM
And let's not forget Fable 2 with 15 - 20hrs of main story and upwards of 100hrs of side/special missions, which many people have stated are indistinguishable from the main story, which keeps the gameplay feeling seemless.

And Deadspace, which could last up to 20+hrs, It took me 18.

Posted by sps73 - Saturday, October 25, 2008 5:31 AM
How do you know it will be longer vertigo?

And don't give me that disc space crap because with Oblivion being 120 hr+, Fallout 3 100+, and Bioshock 25 - 30hr (it took me 26 and a half hrs.) I think we all now know that a DVD9 with the proper compression techniques applied during game dev. is capable of holding large amounts of data, therefore large games with top notch graphics, sound and smooth gameplay!

You're just beating a dead horse with that DVD9=small inferior games myth...

Posted by oO_VERTiGO_Oo - Saturday, October 25, 2008 1:12 AM
@darknell
It will at least be longer than gears of war.

also that music and video are a totally different theme than the game in my honest opinion mad world was better although i like this music better

as usual rrod tries to ruin the 360 forum.
to rrod if u dnt like gow2 or the 360 dnt post on the 360 forums simple as that. ur just mad bcuz ps3 doesnt have as many kick ass games as the 360.

Posted by REDZ3RO - Friday, October 24, 2008 4:12 PM
My thing is...

If you don't own the system to play the game... Why are you even here if you don't have anything nice to say.

R2 and GOW2 will BOTH be top sellers for there respected systems.

I don't own a PS3, but I respect the few PS3 owners out there that are Gamers. Not Fanboys.

"I Play Games, Not Consoles!".

*EDIT*

*What* game commercials have you seen that looks better than this one.

Posted by Hife - Friday, October 24, 2008 4:07 PM
Damn, that was one hell of a commercial, and that's from a PS3 only owner. As others have said, it gave me goosebumps.

And my two cents on the R2 v. GoW2 thing. I personally think we should be comparing Resistance to Halo. Their styles are much closer.

Posted by xBlaCkBiRdx02 - Friday, October 24, 2008 4:04 PM
@RROD

Well at least you werent the first one and posted 10 comments... One game commercials have you seen that looks better than this one, "Mad World" will never be topped...

R2 and GOW2 are both gonna be great and they are totally different games, but will both kick ASS..

Posted by Bookshelf - Friday, October 24, 2008 4:03 PM
I think Cliffy B is BSing, he should know that his precious game would look and play the best on a PC.

Posted by BrooklynOwns - Friday, October 24, 2008 3:54 PM
I think Cliffy B said they're won't be a PC version.

Resistance 2 won't look better than Gears 2. But that's not saying R2 won't look great. I think the only company that created an engine that can rival Gears graphics is Naughty Dog. Uncharted absolutely looks amazing.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 24, 2008 3:47 PM
Epic also said that they tapped out the Xbox 3FixMe and that there is nothing left in it.

Posted by automatic_ab - Friday, October 24, 2008 3:44 PM
If the PC version for this is anything like the bug infested piece of garbage that GoW1 was, I swear I'm going to EPIC myself and sticking that disc up someone's A55!

Rub the cumm from out your eyes it's blinding you to reality.

Your talking about Epic Games here. The creators of the Unreal Game Engine you dick sucker. There is NO WAY that R2 is going to look better graphically than Gears2. Epic is so far ahead when it comes to high-end graphics over all other game studios it's not even funny.

Posted by vaheegn - Friday, October 24, 2008 2:39 PM
So from this trailer, you can see the obvious:
-The game is rated M for Mature.
-Marcus stares into space thinking about donuts
-Cole is amazed at the sight of a flower.
-Dom longs for his wife.
-Marcus/Dom go underground to fight the locust.

I'm just writing this to let time pass by as I anxiously await the game's release.

sps73 you is write when it doens come out rrod...

shut up yet again about how bad a game will be....and he will be 100% wrong about this...

resistence 2....yah what ever will get some good reviews...

but doesnt matter....lol

i also cant wait for
resident evil 5....mgs4..tekken..lol

Posted by magopus6 - Friday, October 24, 2008 2:23 PM
@sps73

please do not misunderstand me. I absolutely loved GOW. and the weapons are great. The lancer is by far my favorite weapon in any game ever made. but with such a great game, my greed wanted more. i have heard of a couple new weapons, i just hope EPIC has been keeping hidden many more

Posted by G4rulesforever - Friday, October 24, 2008 2:10 PM
This game is gonna kick ass!!!
Far Cry 2 and Fallout 3 are going to have to satisfy me until this game comes out.

Posted by BrooklynOwns - Friday, October 24, 2008 2:00 PM
Gears 2 and R2 will be two great titles to be released in November.This holiday season is turning out to be a great time to be a gamer unless you only own a Wii.

Nintendo where are you?

Posted by bleahy - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:45 PM
@RedRingOfDeath,

Lack of weapons?

Semi-Auto Pistol
Magnum
Lancer
Hammerburst
Shotgun
Boomshot
Longshot
Torque Bow
Hammer of Dawn
Frag Grenades
Smoke Grenades

Just because a game doesn't throw 20 weapons at you doesn't mean it has a lack of weapons. You're again comparing this to Resistance, which is made by the guys that do Ratchet & Clank. You know, the guys KNOWN for filling a game with tons of great weapons.

This is just as silly as the 60 players vs. 10 players argument. Different games, people.

Posted by REDZ3RO - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:41 PM
Very nice.

Looking foward to getting this game and playing it for a very long time...

Posted by sps73 - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:35 PM
@RROD: The campain was 10 to 12 hrs. long and everyone knows the weapons in Gears are second to none, so you and magopus give it up already!

This game is going to be great and there is nothing anyone is going to do to stop that!

I SMELL YET ANOTHER MEGA HIT FOR THE 360! Smell it RROD i know you can....i know you can!

Posted by REDZ3RO - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:34 PM

I said the STORY was average at best, not the game. I see you didn't dispute the 5 hour campaign and the lack of weapons.

@RROD: We'll see in a couple of weeks if Gears2 is just average with no improvements upon the first Gears, and when we see that you are completely wrong as usual, you will hide for a couple of days as usual little boy!

Posted by magopus6 - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:13 PM
@RROD, JDarkley

I agree that R2 is very much improved, especially graphics wise. this first one had a gray/blue hue. R2 looks very lush. but i have a feeling GOW2's story will be improved, with a couple new weapons.

but R2 will have a rediculous amount of awesome weapons, and R2's story will be amazing. GOW2 will be fun dude, but like i said, i hope they have more weapons than what has been shown so far.

again its hard to compare the two, i agree with Jdark that the games are completely different....but when it comes down to it, i am much more excited about R2!

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:06 PM
Resistance 1 was a launch title like Perfect Dark Zero. Which one was better? Resistance 2 is much improved over the first launch title. Gears 2 looks just like Gears 1 with a flame thrower added to it. No improvements.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 24, 2008 1:03 PM
Resistance 2 will be better. Resistance 2 is 3 games in one. It has a single player campaign, a separate 8 man co-op mode, and a multi player with up to 60 players. I have the beta and it's all awesome. Gears is cool but it's campaign is only 5 hours long and the story was average at best with only 5 guns to play with. Resistance 2 is the clear winner here. Glad we cleared that up.

Posted by bapesta - Friday, October 24, 2008 12:59 PM
i amticipate that R2 will come with better graphics than gears2. yes, the first resistances graphics wernt exactly amazing but they have been much improved and made by the same people who made the newest Ratchet and clank which was a beautiful game.

Posted by JDarkley - Friday, October 24, 2008 12:59 PM
Okay, since everybody is bringing it up, I just have to say please stop shoving "Gears" and "Resistance" into some rivalry. It happen with the first games and it's happening again. I as a 360 owner have Gears and my roommate, a PS3 owner, has "Resistance." I've played both games and they are each very good in their own right, but they are two completly different games. It's more than just one is an FPS and one is a TPS, but the pacing and presentation are different for both. Both games kicked ass and their respective sequels will probably do the same, but at the end of the day it will just come down to personal preference and which system you own, and nobody should put down a game just because it's on a system that you don't own.

Posted by Smartguy81 - Friday, October 24, 2008 12:53 PM
i found myself only using the shotgun and machine gun in resistance. the stupid exploding pod gun was the worst thing ever though....well...that and the bullets that disappear after 60 feet.

both games are incredible, gow's graphics are much much better than resistance. i love the style, world, and characters of gow. but i like resistance story and weapons better. i have a funny feeling that gow2's story is going to miles ahead of the first one! (which cliffy b also hinted at)

and its kinda hard to compare considering they are two different styles, two different shooters, etc.

Il tell u what, u know I own both systems, and i am more attached to playstations, but I will admit that I will get this game, and it will be very enjoyable. BUT....I am more excited for resistance than this. I am 10 times more excited for R2 because R2's story, weapons design are better than gow in my honest opinion
