Gears of War 2 on SciFi Channel and a note about Resistance 2

Sci-Fi Channel aired an HD ‘Sci Vs. Fi: Gears of War 2’, and all the hype reeled me in…and then I realized it’s a Microsoft game.  Dammit.  I’ve only got a PS3, PS2, PC, and a Wii.  I’m outta luck.  This simply means I’ll have to put Resistance 2 on my Christmas Gift list.

Anyway, GOW2 it looks fantastic.  Aisha Tyler, the actor formerly on “Ghost Whisperer” (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0878768/ , age 38) loves it, as does “Chuck” himself, Zachary Levi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1157048/).  Not that celebrity endorsements are all that important to me, but it’s fun to watch them rave about video games.  The show is funny and really cranks one up for the game.

One thought on “Gears of War 2 on SciFi Channel and a note about Resistance 2

  1. They’re both great games however Gears edges out Resistance 2 slightly in the single player campaign. Resistance 2’s multiplayer is slightly better mostly due to the 8 player coop campaign mode which is fantastic!Both games are must owns if you have both systems. Smart move adding it to your Christmas list Dan. Look forward to playing coop online with you in the future.
