Gears2

The sequel to the game that catapulted the Xbox 360 to stardom, Gears of War 2 is a pretty damn decent game. If you were bummed when the retail release of the all-DLC-included version of the game got shelved, there’s a faint glimmer of hope. Gears of War 2 is getting a “Game of the Year” Edition which does indeed include all DLC to date. Odd, considering Gears of War 2 failed to win any Game of the Year Awards, but I digress. Happy to hear of the new Gears 2 release?

Don’t put those dancing shoes on just yet…

Instead of putting the DLC on the disc like they said they would, They’ve now opted to include a redeemable token to download the “All Fronts collection” which poses two problems for local gamers : Firstly, I’m still waiting for the goddamned code that was supposed to come with the game when it first launched and secondly – even if local copies do come with the code, the bloody content is blocked, necessitating the use of a VPN.

Thanks once again Microsoft, for not giving us Xbox Live. With this next release could you include a tube of anal lube?

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.
