By the way, madeye, I wanted to thank you for the PlaySwitch recommendation. I finally got around to posting Gears of War 2 on there and within a day I sold it for 43 dollars. Awesome.

Well, "upcoming" in that it could be a year off.

But I am super stoked. The first game was fun as crap.

Pick it up cheap somewhere. It's a great engine and I enjoyed it as a medieval Batman simulator but it's like they forgot to put a game in there

Ugh. Ride your horse for a half-hour to this destination, scale a few identical towers to scope out the landscape, fight some generic guards, then hide in one of the babillion bales of hay scattered around the city. That whole game felt like fluff to me.

Yeah, exactly. The sequel looks like it's attempting to fix the first game's problem's though.
