I think the only mode I really enjoy is Wingman, although that can even get frustrating because I'm an idiot

I refuse to play horde with random people because they're all fucking idiots. Hell, even some of my friends are fucking idiots and I won't play with them. I know it's all about just having fun, but seriously - some of the dumb shit people do just irritates me. if you want to dick around, let's play execution. There's no point playing Horde unless you're going to take it at least a little bit seriously.

I also feel like the game is a load slower than Gears 1, even after getting used to it - and that frustrates me.

Don't get me wrong, the single player was far better in some ways than the first (I still loved Cole's entrance and sniper practice )

Serial - I have no doubt that standard still won't like the game. If Gears 1 didn't hook you, Gears 2 won't. I still refuse to believe they're overrated. They make huge, HUGE leaps and bounds with regards to gameplay, and make most (maybe any) 3rd person shooter games look like junk. Uncharted, all games like that are meh in comparison to the way the camera hooks on the back, the cover system and so on. Hell, even the guns feel like they're really powerful, which is something you simply can't say about games like Halo.

Fucking Gears 2 multiplayer is shitty now. 5 round games are bullshit, and everyone is a fucking moron that lets the enemies get the power weapons. Was playing Jacinto, and my teammates all went to the poison grenades. We got torqued, mortared, and hammer of dawned. It was horrendous.

Gears 1's lobby system was much better, because I could play games with a 14 round limit where the game didn't end in 5 goddamn minutes and the retarded noobs would just beat the piss out of each other on 5 round Gridlock matches and I wouldn't have to deal with them on my team.

Host advantage was fixed, but now it lags 200% more. And unlike Gears 1, if it lags, you're FUCKED.

The campaign and horde are awesomesauce, though, and make my $60 worthwhile.

I haven't. I've heard it's more varied but it's still Gears.

Xbox LIVE Marketplace Black Friday Sale - Xbox Live's Major Nelson

Do yourself a favour and buy Rez HD, if you haven't already.

Hehe, I heard about that. Videogames, bringing couples together.

I like that game well enough, but nothing beats playing Civ 4 with its expansions while listening to some classical and baroque music.
