Sounds a bit like Crazy King and that's by far my favourite Halo 2 game. Bring it on!

From teamxbox.com:

"Update

We have just received word from Microsoft regarding this leak. A Microsoft spokesperson told us:

Earlier this afternoon, we prematurely posted news on the upcoming title update for “Gears of War,” which will contain an exciting new multiplayer mode called “Annex.” While we can confirm that the information provided about “Annex” is correct, the release date of April 9 is not final and remains TBD.

Stay tuned for more info, and we promise that this game-changing new multiplayer mode will be well worth the wait."

I am pretty sure that sillothian traded in GOW when he picked up Crackdown. I think he's pretty tied up with his new PS3 at the moment. Haven't seen him online for a while.

He said he'd buy it back if a decent mode - with respawns - came out.

Sil has a PS3? Tch. Splitter.

Finally respawns, though still no deathmatch mode. Don't think is enough to tempt me to get the game again, unless I can find it for £20.

Yes Mad I've got a PS3. Got the F1 game and Resistance, both of which are excellent. Online on both is great too. Resistance is a great change of pace from GRAW, R6 and GOW. Reminds me of the original UT.

I read on the official forums last night (and there's a scary place!) that Epic have four maps ready to give out - free - to the public, but they've been prevented from doing so by Microsoft.

Apparently MS are insisting they charge for the new stuff, and everything has ground to a halt while the two firms thrash out a compromise. Looks like it'll be going the Halo 2 route of buy-now-free-later. Seriously poor show on MS's part - but anything free on the marketplace embarrasses much of the drek they insist on charging for, I guess.

Annex is free - but probably won't be out until later in the week.

If thats true thats absolutely scandalous. I dont get the argument that because one thing is free, it'll stop people buying something else which isnt. Do DVD's given away on newspapers have any effect on DVD retail sales?

If anything, if this is proven to be the case, I'll buy even less DLC content as I'll know that its probably MS insisting on it not being free, rather than the Dev/Pub.

MS would do well to look at what happened to GRAW and Battlefield when paid for content involving maps was released. Then again, when a game reaches Halo 2/GoW levels, you can get away with splintering the community.

Can maybe allaboutthegames.net sponsor this DLC like the Discovery Channel did? C'mon Hairy, think of the community!

I like this approach to DLC - charge at first then after a few months give it away free. It would be nice if it was all like that (or completely free).
