Blezinski: Gears of War female narrator revealed in Gears 2

Wednesday, 18th June 2008 12:29 GMT By Mike

While talking about the Gears of War 2 storyline with Danish site Gamereactor, Gears of War 2 producer Cliff Blezinski said that the identity of the series’ female narrator will be revealed in Gears of War 2.

When asked whether the story for Gears of War 2 would focus on Marcus Fenix, Cliff replied:

“It is without doubt the story of Marcus but at the same time it’s a story about the human race with its back to the wall,” said Blezinski, translated from Danish by VG247.

“And in the sequel it’s a lot about Dom and the two new characters Tai and Dizzy. There’s also loads of back story about the Pendulum Wars, Jacinto etc.”

“And what about that voice you hear in the trailers?” he said. “Those kinds of things are answered in 2.”

We’re hyped. Gears of War 2 is out later this year.

    Apparently they just gave Alone in the Dark 3/10. :-D

    Wow… that’s painful. Any idea which version they reviewed? Though I guess it might not make any difference depending on what they didn’t like.

    Blimey, I may not be able to read it but a score like that probably makes it unnecessary anyway. Lack of reviews, no demo and out on Friday all adds up to one thing.

    Well, they talk about Eden so I surmise it’s the 360 version.

    Grafikk: 4
    Gameplay: 3
    Lyd: 4
    Holdbarhet: 3

    Graphics, Gameplay (dur), Sound, Durability.

    Norwegian and Danish are almost identical when written but sound utterly different when spoken.

    Another wasted opportunity. I bet Phil is loving his new position.

    N4G handily translated the bits we need to know:

    Graphics: 4
    Gameplay: 3
    Audio: 4
    Durability: 3

    Plus:
    The summary when you load a saved game.

    Minus:
    Poor controls, slow, feels old, bad voice acting, frustrating gaming mechanics

    They gave SSBB 10/10 in case that mattered.

    It’s not very durable, it’s a standard disc surely? Presumably “longevity” would be a better translation?

    ‘ark at expert over there!

    Maybe the game was so bad they tried chewing the disc instead?

    Perhaps that’s it, either way I think I’ll leave it unless it drops to Mastertronic levels of pricing! :-)

    You might want to rethink those Alone in the Dark pre-orders. 6 out of 10 from X360 magazine.

    Ta.

    I’ve heard that it’s “a bit fiddly”.
