Anybody else here gettin' this on friday?

I'm so stoked. I loved the first game. The sequel even looks more badass than the first one. And so far, the reviews are pretty good.

IGN and Gametrailers both have it a 9.5

Well if you check the Very Good Things Thread you'll see I didn't get the LE like I wanted, but I was able to get it 2 days early. Check 7-11's around you if you want it today.

Well, as of 7:53PM on November 6th, 2008, I beat Gears of War 2.

Beating a game before it's supposed to come out: fan-f***ing-tastic.

EDIT: As a headsup, stay after the credits for a special something.

Bongo, either the game is really short or you savor video games like Dylan Thomas appreciates fine alcohol.

Aww, come on! (http://kyle.geib.googlepages.com/GiantBombcast11-04-2008.MarcusPheoni.MP3) (3'32" - 1.62mb )

What is Marcus Pheonix like at home?

Seriously, I listened to this part like 5 times and couldn't stop giggling like a moron. Giant Bombcast is pretty damn entertaining.

Not really short. More just that I beat it on Co-Op on the easiest difficulty, where you can run up and bitch smack them all to death and 90 percent of the time come out ok.

I'm running through on Insane difficulty now :)

To those who have beaten the game...
At the end, when Marcus is trying to contact Anya, and the other helicopter with Cole shows up, is the lady that steps out behind Cole Anya? Or is it an as-of-now unnamed character that will replace Anya? I can't quite tell.

I'm pretty sure that's Anya. When you played the first Gears of War, you see Anya, and she looks like the same girl there.

That's what I thought, but I was talking to a friend about GoW2 the other day and he said...
The ending was ok except for them killing off Anya suddenly and for no reason.

Wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.
