It was my bday the other week and i ended up getting fallout 3, farcry 2, fable 2 and deadspace. Must say i cant get off of fallout, and am enjoying dead space, however the other 2 seem to have fallen to the bottom of the pile..maybe the sort you have to get into.
im gettin cod5 on the ps3, pre ordered it last week, its a good thing it comes out the day after my exams so i dont have to worry about revision for my modulars..
dunno about gears 2, ill probably get it at christmas if cod5 doesnt reel me in..
i too have played the beta, i dont think its a cod4 rip off, imo its a whole different concept, ww2 and modern warfare is a completely different eras, i dont like the dullness of cod5 the maps are quite cool aswell, sniping is worse then cod4..
