Resistance 2 Collector’s vs GOW 2 Limited

With the announcement today of Resistance 2 being released November 4th we quickly looked at our “Release Calendars” and noticed another little game being released the same week.  That’s right you X360 lovers, Gears of Wars 2 is coming November 7th.  With both games having ‘Special Editions’, we try to break down both ‘Editions’ then ask you, the reader the following question.

  1. Special editions aside, I’m going with Gears 2 on this one.

    Resistance 2 looks interesting, but not enough to
    wrangle $60 out of my hands…might just have to get
    it post-release on the cheap 🙂

  2. Dude, Co-op play on R2 will get me to buy it. And with co-op multiplayer….. it’s only that much sweeter! (it does come with multi- co-op, right?)

  3. lol yea didn’t u write the other article about resistance shouldn’t u know lol funny stuff here, yea but I’m going for that resistance collectors edition shit is tight son

  4. @ Ariel, I’m trying to sell this thing. I fear the X360 fanboys once they catch wind of this poll!

  5. I’m surprised GOW2 is losing the poll so badly… at the same time, I wasn’t a fan of the original Gears, but so many people were.

  6. I told you guys a while back, the only GOW2, was God of War 2. With the PS3 hitting it’s peek this year, it’s no surprise that Resistance 2 is the more anticipated game.

  7. Both games have online co-op, but!

    Resistance 2 has 8-player vs. Gears’
    measly 2.

    Still, I’m gonna have to go Gears and
    probably Resistance 2 down
    the line 🙂

    I had tons of fun with the first Gears and
    Resistance, from the little I played of it,
    bored me to tears…

  8. my problem with Gears was the goofy running and odd combat angles. It just never sat well with me.

  9. @ juan(seems people do this a lot it seems fun) so your trying to sell a SONY game huh ummm how much u get paid by SONY????

  10. oh, not that much my stock in Sony is all that matters

  11. oh that makes sense stock is always good , look at the 1920’s sure was a good investment

  12. Gears was one of the most boring games I played back in ’06. I wound up selling it back to Gamestop two weeks after I bought it. I’ll be damned if I get duped a second time.

  13. Gears of war 1 was allright and the second one will be the same. I’m excited to see all the new weapons in resistance 2 and to try out the eight player co-op/60 player multiplayer.

  14. This is totally ridiculous. This is a super PS3 fanboy site and its almost repulsive how much so. The Gears of War 2 collectors edition comes with more stuff, it comes in a metal case, and its only $69.99. The writer of this article also barely states that it is $10 cheaper, which is a very significant amount.

  15. I also love how all the PS3 fanboys are always on the forums instead of actually playing their PS3 eh?

  16. Resistance 2 kills xbox 360

  17. @Holden: We’re nowhere close to being a PS3 fanboy site or fanboy site of any system. We love and hate all systems. Just because most of us don’t really like Gears doesn’t mean we’re fanboys of some kind (one of our writers prefers the Gears package). With your statements, I can assume you are the fanboy. I also don’t see why he’d have to hype up the $10 price difference. It was mentioned above.

  19. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
    Extremely useful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such info much.
    I was seeking this particular info for a very long time.

    Thank you and best of luck.
