GEARS OF WAR 2 OUT ON FRIDAY
I don’t have a particularly strong backbone. In the past, I worried so much about what people thought of me that I slowly stopped being myself. Fortunately, in recent times I feel very much myself, and feel very much comfortable with who I am. I went out for dinner with a friend tonight that I care a lot about. And she made me think a lot about my life in general. I never thought that writing a blog would negatively affect some of my friends and the people that I care dearly about. I just wanted a place to share my musings and photographs. There’s no ulterior motive. I don’t comment on other people’s blogs to become more popular. I just know that comments mean a lot to bloggers because it means people are actually reading your posts. So to anyone who thinks I am commenting on their blog to raise my own popularity — I apologize for that misconception and I promise that is not my intention. I will stop commenting unless you want me to continue. To any friends who may be offended by things I have written or turned off by the tone of my blog — I’m sorry. I am who I am, but I never intended to hurt your feelings or come across as full of myself. It’s pretty much the opposite. I promise this blog will never have ads. I have never and will never delete comments (unless they are pure spam) or modify comments. I will have never and will never advertise anything without being transparent about it, if I even ever advertise anything at all. I promise I have always been honest in my posts and will continue to do so. I won’t lie or embellish. I will tentatively continue to blog, but not at the expense of my friends and loved ones. So, moving on.
GEARS OF WAR 2 is coming out on Friday and I could NOT be more excited. I have my pre-order in with EB Games (even though I despise them), and can’t wait to pick it up. I played co-op and multi-player for hours on the first Gears of War and to date, it is still my favourite Xbox 360 game. I imagine to spend just as many hours on this one. (Finishing it on the Insane level and trying to collect dog tags, of course )
The first Gears of War ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with Marcus and Dom killing Raam and setting up the bomb that really didn’t do all that much I’m looking forward to finding out what happens and more about the Locust (and the Queen!) and their motivations for earth.
I also hear that there will be more cutscenes and cinematics which is great for Campaign/Co-Op mode. I love getting invested in video game characters, if it is supposed to be better than the first, then I know I’m in for a real treat.
Co-Op is supposed to be just as good as the first, so I can’t wait to get on there with my long-time gaming buddy Keith. Believe it or not, I used to play quite frequently in a bit of an Xbox clan, but I just haven’t had much time lately. It’ll be good to sit down and blow hours on a bit of gaming. Fable II will be my next game to play, but it is definitely Gears 2 all the way first
Anyone else excited about this game? Want to play multiplayer. Add me as “Buggo” on Xbox Live.
