We already touched on the upcoming Comic-Con 2008 festivities, but yesterday Microsoft released an officially official press release detailing all the Gears of War 2
love they'll be showing for Comic-Con attendees. And already, we're jealous we can't attend.
Microsoft will have a booth setup on the floor where everyone can get a chance to play Too Human
and Ninja Gaiden II
, where also on Saturday, July 26th from 2:00-2:45PM the Cliff Bleszinski and GoW2
lead writer Joshua Ortega will be signing Gears
posters. Later on Saturday, from 3:30-4:30PM, team Epic will be holding a "Gears of War
" Showcase Panel where Bleszinski, Ortega and Karen Traviss
will discuss all things Gears
and give an exclusive preview of the vehicles and weapons that'll grace Gears 2
come this Fall. NECA will also be on hand selling an exclusive Carmine figure
, previewing the General RAAM figure and there will be other Gears
comic and novel goodness all over.
2008 is the year Gears of War 2
takes over Comic-Con and, depressingly, we can't attend. Though, MS does promise to "Bring it Home" via Xbox Live, so that should help our Gears 2
needs. Hopefully it'll be enough.
