New Gears of War 2 Content – Yup, It’s Blocked.

49 second read

Yesterday saw the release of two bits of long-awaited Gears of War 2 Downloadable content. First and Foremost is Dark Corners – which features the first single player DLC as well as a collection of 7 multiplayer maps. Released concurrently was the All Fronts Collection which as the name implies is a collection of every single Gears 2 map released to date. Good news, right?

Not for South African Gears fans it isn’t – once again we’ve been deemed unfit to receive them, thanks in part to Germany’s draconian videogame laws. The content had been freely accessible for a time yesterday, so if you managed to grab it then, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of you, it’s time to hook up those VPN’s.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    One thing that ticks me off beyond believe is. If we fall under the same laws as the ex Nazi clan to the east. Then why did they sell GOW2 to us in the first place ,If we cant even get the DLC? Oh man i really need to chainsaw a german politician now.
