Gears of War 2 Dialogue
I couldn't find the link, but way back when Gears of War 2 was still in development, I read an interview where a member of Epic's top brass (I can't remember if it was CliffyB or Mark Rein) was talking up about how excited they were about the game's story and dialogue. I can't believe they had to hire someone to write lines like this.
Or maybe they had to hire someone TO write lines like this, because, oh man, Gears 2 DOES have awesome dialogue. It's a bunch of heavily armored dudes packing guns with chainsaw bayonets shit-talking like thirteen-year-olds. The game's actual "drama" is so over-the-top grim, and action set pieces so ridiculously preposterous that it transcends into a truly excellent B-movie experience. Does that make sense? A "Triple-A" "B-grade" game?
Regardless, "ten shitloads" has now entered my lexicon. You need a buddy to back you up:
(In a gravelly voice): "It has TEN shitloads of meat in it, rookie!"
Oh, and that picture to the sandwich linked above? That's only one half of the sandwich.
