    Major Nelson, why do you make it easy for Cliff to talk about the issues regarding Gears of War 2. You guys are ridiculous.

    Call of Duty 4, Call of Duty WaW, and Halo 3 are on top of the Xbox Live charts. That means those games have the most players. So don’t use the BS that a lot of players playing the games cause issues. The game was released in the Alpha stages and Microsoft and Epic don’t want to admit it.

    All Epic had to do was RELEASE A BETA!!! My brother stated this at Epic Games forums and was banned for discussing something that Halo 3, Call of Duty WaW, and Call of Duty 4 used to ensure the community would have a great experience. Epic Games only cares about money. I bought the first map pack but I won’t be getting this one. I bet the next one will have War Machine in it. It’s so obvious what they are doing.

    I actually thought Gears of War was going to be one of the franchises to keep. I’m loving Fallout 3 so I think I’ll stick to that.

    BTW, the Title Update 3 still has lag issues. Epic just sucks!

    @DOOBYDAR Of course he did not. It looks bad for Microsoft and Epic if he did. He avoided the issue as usual. I won’t get Gears 3 as well! You think a major title like Gears would be more carefully handled. Oh well.

    If you don’t like a game don’t play it. Gears plays great for me most of the time, and I WILL be buying the new maps this week:)
    I have had COD and Halo lag also. That’s what happens when a crappy host gets picked… everyone else suffers.

    Well, I didn’t hear the price for the SnowBlind Map Pack, I’m getting it. The DishWasher cometh THIS Wednesday!??! Insta-buy, although I bought 1600 for Snowblind, The Dishwasher gets priority in this situation. Cliff said “Jazz Jack Rabbit” and I just smiled for about 1.5 miles of my (15 miles) drive to work.

    @Maj
    Um, I’m not understanding the ‘Living Roster’ on MLB2K9. My understanding is that a gamer/user of the game can take the REAL names and input them into the MLB2K9 and upload them for other gamers to download the REAL NAMES of the sports athletes. So, does this mean now that Guitar Hero World Tour can have famous songs created and uploaded by gamers/users of Guitar Hero World Tour so we can finally download play a wicked guitar of Sonic the Hedge Hog or Final Fantasy or did they work in some ‘special rights’ as it is a sports game and it is totally ‘legal’ to do that?
