Gears of War 2 made an appearance at the Comic-Con today and some interesting news was dropped, announcing that Gears 2 would get “linked achievements”. What exactly is a “linked achievement”? Well simply put, things you achieved in the first Gears of War game will have an affect on your play through the much anticipated sequel. Cliffy B gave some examples of what he meant by linked achievements:

- Complete Act One in Gears Of War, unlock a playable Anthony Carmine in Gears of War 2
- Find 10 COG tags in Gears Of War, unlock Minh Young Kim in Gears of War 2
- k!ll Raam in Gears Of War, unlock a playable Raam in Gears of War 2
This is a great way to promote players to play through the original title and promote continuity between titles. This is an interesting and innovative idea that should be incorporated into more sequels especially since there are so many sequels coming out soon. Curious what if any other “linked achievements” might get added later?

Why link it to achievements instead of just unlocking characters? Seems a bit odd. Dope, but odd.

On top of the linked achievement news coming from Comic-Con, a new Gears of War 2 edition was unofficially announced by the panel members. A new Halo 3 Legendary edition priced $130 Gears of War 2 bundle that is said to include a miniature replica model of a Lancer. Something we should have expected seeing that we caught word from our own source that a mini Lancer would grace some sort of Gears of War 2 edition. Microsoft has yet to confirm this $130 Gears 2 edition, what other content will be included or when it'll be available, but we expect news to trickle in soon. And just in case you were wondering, the answer is an emphatic "yes". A certain blogger will be plopping down his $130 come November.

Steve Jablonsky recently finished the last recording session at Skywalker Sound for the soundtrack. He also did Transformers and the remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

You'll see Carmine brother Anthony in the game.

There's a 130 dollar bundle of Gears 2 that will include an actual Lancer. No, it's not a functioning gun. Note: The information about the bundle -- including pricing and what it will include -- is unconfirmed by Microsoft and is subject to change.

Gears 2 is "just as much Dom's story as Marcus'."

Dizzy's hat can be shot off in multiplayer. Dizzy is voiced by Peter Jason from Deadwood.

The collector's edition of Gears 2 will include the photo of Dom and his wife that Dom actually carries through the campaign. He pulls it out to ask people if they've seen Maria.

Both the comic and the novel are prequels to Gears 2 but take place after the first game. The comic stars a new COG soldier who makes a cameo in the campaign mode of the second game.

Jack, the helpful little robot from Gears 1 has much more screen time in Gears 2.

The panel showed off a Gears of War Xbox 360 adorned with fancy artwork and a red paint job. One side of the console showed frenzied Locust and the other showed COG soldiers.

The Gears novel comes out on October 28. Karen Travis also wrote the Republic Commando novels and love writing about war. She quizzed the folks at Epic asking, "How do the soldiers clean the chainsaw bayonet? What does their armor feel like?" Cliff had no answer when she originally posed the question. At one point Ortega suggested that they use "Lancer floss."

The Corpser is in the game.

Dom's older brother Carlos, who is a friend of Marcus', is in the novel.

Len Wiseman is directing the Gears movie, Chris Morgan is doing the script and Legendary Pictures is co-financing. Cliff is an executive producer on the project.

The actor playing the lead role might not be the massive buff guy that people expect.

Cliff enjoyed lighting things on fire and dressing as a ninja as a kid.

Thirty percent of Gears 2 takes place in The Hollow (the Locust lair). Cliff made the distinction to ensure that people didn't think it was a "cave game."

People think Jon DiMaggio is hilarious. Especially when he converses with himself in the Bender and Marcus Fenix voices.
