I'm really stoked for Beast mode as well, not to mention Horde 2.0. Gears 2 was the reason I bought an Xbox in the first place, so I'm pretty excited.
Feel free to add me if you'd like, my gamertag is Zydrate Junkie.
In the bleak life and modern times
Under grey skies and electric light
Mortal men are living gods
More real than any god ever was
