    Honestly, even though I bought both Gears games, it really doesn't have the shelf life of Halo or COD. And the endings really are anticlimactic.

    3rd Gears book hasn't come out yet and the 4th is going to come but hasn't really been announced yet so no wonder you haven't read them

    Nice show, just beat the single player of SC Conviction, it's really good but the graphics engine is outdated, and the mark-and-execute is too easy.

    I'm torn because I enjoyed the game a lot, but it didn't particularly blow my mind. But since the gameplay is so good, although I miss many of the good hardcore features of the old SC games (maybe Ubi will make them optional on the next game), and there's more modes to explore, including co-op, I'm sure I'll have a blast for at least 20 more hours (co-op, deniable ops, and campaign on realistic, and I'll probably go for all achievements, since I can't think of any achievement that seams "impossible"). In total, there's at least 30 hours of content if you are completion or someone likes to enjoy all of the modes.

    For instance, if you play MW2 and dispose of the game after finishing the solo campaign once, don't blame on the game, the Spec-Ops Co-op and the Multiplayer modes add at considerably more value to it.

    SC:Conviction gets a flat 9/10, and its biggest shortcoming IMO, is the presentation.

    You talk about them saying that Gears of War 3 will come out on 4/8/11 and that its such a big deal that its almost a year away. But if you open the the game case to Dragon Age Origins Awakenings, there is a card that I can only assume is Dragin Age Orgins 2 and it states something is coming out on 02/01/2011 so announcing or hinting it at is awesome it gives me something to look foward to, instead of wondering when are they going to make a sequal or what not.

    I had no Idea that's how a Jewish mother sounds Adam..lol
    Hasn't Matt played MGS4? If you want stealth and an intelligent Ai that's one of the best game to play.

    Idk, ....but Jake seemed out of it.

    as for the satisfying AI, arkham asylum came pretty damn close to your expectations.

    Heh, funny you should mention Mass Effect 2 co-op. I remember reading a review about ME2 the day it came out and some idiot self-hired reviewer said that it was "unacceptable" that there isn't any co-op. I obviously flipped but managed to refrain from flaming the entire website.

    Splinter Cells previous were fun but always were a little aggravating i am a achievement hunter and i play every game that isn't Barby Horse Adventure. But Splinter Cell Conviction seems a little more my pace. I like some stealthy elements and like Abbie said Escape From Butcher Bay was my favorite stealthy game too. So it sounds like Conviction will be a little more my pace.

    Gears Wars or what ever I doubt will ever come to play. I mean yeah we know gears 3 was coming out before the End of December 2008. by the Adam Fenix message "What have you done, this is Adam Fenix" whatever. Do you really believe they put that message in there for the Gears 3 franchise? I don't. We are missing the big picture, at least yall are G4 no offense. What happened 15 years before E-day what happened on E-Day what happened during the Pendulum Wars? Adam Recorded that message because he was "mostlikey helded at gunpoint with his squad on the first game" when General RAAM killed that COG troop on the first game "Not Kim" I believe he was in line next to get shot. That was his Squad Beta Squad. The little machine on the first game the COG troop dropped in that hole by the car, that was intel Adam's Intel. He know everything about the queen the locust the lambeth and left it with a troop so Delta could find it and find out really how to kill the locust for good. Imulsion makes them stronger, the lightmass bomb didn't kill them, now the flood didn't kill them so what will. Who knows? Adam Does! So Epic, G4, person who may read this Take my word for this. Although most of my info is Guesstamation it's most likey true. Ohh yeah about the multiplayer on Gears 2, the only reasons I got off of Gears is because A. the deranked me when I got offline once on a xbox and B. they change the Gears 2 multiplayer too much (especially the smoke grenade it use to knock people over and then it made them stop for a second now it does nothing so it's just another way to waste ammo) Like I said before None of this infomation is Offical but that doesn't mean It's not most likely true.

    Gears of war 2 was a great game if you have anything to complain about complain about that suck as cam when running i mean damn is to much to ask deveolpers for a player controlled camera that helps me. I think that will be the first thing i tackle when i get in the industry.

    I missed Adam last week. I miss Patrick this week. I miss Abbie when she isn't there and I think Matt Keil should become a permanent member of the show. I enjoy his sense of humor and thoughts on gaming. All in all Feedback is awesome.
