Gears Of War 2 Patch Hits!

Title update 2 for Gears Of War 2 has finally arrived addressing a number of issues with the online multiplayer. The patch seems to have fixed a huge amount of glitches and exploits which is going to make the online experience much more enjoyable again. The glitches were really starting to piss me off and I stopped playing for a while, but now I hope to play more with the arrival of this latest update.

Epic has released this list of the problems that have been addressed in Title Update 2:

Update [23/10/08]

[Tomo’s Saints Row 2 Character]

Just a small post to update you guys on what is going on with us right now:

Mark’s Xbox:
Mark96’s Xbox 360 gave him a E74 error and had to be sent in for repair. Fortunately he just received an e-mail saying that the console has been repaired and is now being shipped back to him. So he should be back online any day now.

The Christmas Clusterfuck:
There wont be alot posted here in the next few weeks because we’re in the middle of the Christmas Clusterfuck. A lot of our time will be spent playing new games that are being shoved down our throats over this holiday season. One of the titles due to emerge on the 7th Nov is Gears 2. When that hits we hope to be able to organize some nice clan matches, so stay tuned for those.

Saints Row 2:
Saints Row 2 was released and we all bought a copy (except for Mark96, due to the above reasons) and myself and Tomo have been murdering the co-op mode. Unfortunately Volition thought it would be a great idea to remove the fantastic game modes introduced and Saints 1 (such as Protect Tha Pimp, Blinged Out Ride & Big Ass Chains) and replace them with a mode called Strong Arm, which involves players trying to complete a mixture of activities to earn cash and win the game. Then to top it all off they removed clan support! Which really rattled my cage. We were hoping to defend our title and beat our previous leaderboard record (7th), but that’s never gonna happen now.

Anyway, moving on a wrapping up, here is something that myself and Tomo found whilst messing around in Saints 2’s co-op:

Five free maps for Gears 2 on Launch!

We all know that Gears Of War 2 is going to come with 10 multiplayer maps. Well now Epic have bumped up that number to 15 with the announcement that 5 classic maps are going to be included with the game in the form of a redeemable voucher.

The Flashback Map Pack will included new polished re-makes of Canals, Gridlock, Mansion, Subway, and Tyro Station from the original Gears Of War.

Best of all this is all free, but of course, people who buy the game pre-owned at a later date won’t be able to use the code, and there’s no information about whether the map pack will also be available to purchase on the XBL Marketplace. Could this be a clever marketing ploy by Epic to make sure that people still buy the game new after launch? Who cares, it’s free maps!

UK Gets Gears Of War 2 Hardcore Pack!

Allot of us UK gamers felt a little bit cheated when it was announced that US Amazon customers would be getting thier own exclusive limited edition version of Gears 2 with a life sized Lancer!

Well now it’s been revealed that UK retailer Game Station will be getting thier own limited edition version of the game, but unlike the US customers, the UK gets a golden lancer! Sounds great, but this fucker has been priced at £129.99! The same RRP as the recently reducted Xbox Arcade!

The Gears of War 2 – Hardcore Pack includes:

Life Size gold Lancer Assault Rifle

  • 36” long
  • Weigh’s over 5 kilo’s
  • Chainsaw Sound Effect
  • Vibration Functionality

Gears of War 2 Limited Collectors Edition.

As most of you already know, when you purchase the limited edition you get the gold lancer to use online, so this is what it will most likely look like.

In my opinion this is way overpriced and looks really tacky when compared to the US lancer with the neat blood splatter. I’ll definately give this a miss, i’d much rather spend that sort of money on something i’ll enjoy like Guitar Hero World Tour! I did buy the Halo 3 legendary edition, but that was reasonably priced, it’s a stylish product and looks great next to my Elite. But what would you do with the lancer? You’d need to get some nails on the wall to mount it, and even then the gold makes it look crappy! However in it’s defence the vibration and sound effects might be cool, bit is it enough to warrant the £130 price tag? £60 more than the Halo 3 legendary? I don’t think so Tim!
