Gears of War Announcement Soon

Epic's Vice President Mark Rein announced today that a "BIG" Gears of War announcement will be coming next week. This follows the announcement of the official Gears of War website. Epic's Mark Rein hinted that it might be the release date, but would not confirm anything. And neither would Microsoft. Other rumors have been spreading that the announcement will be for a Gears of War demo, which would have 360 owners everywhere monitoring marketplace like the goverment watches Iraq. I hope it's for the demo.

I hope so, of course it will be impossible to download cause the minute they announce it everybody will try to download it, like the Halo 3 trailer.

¬°Hey! This is the first time I visit this blog! And veliebe me, it is the last! How in the hell can you use white text over black background??? That's plain crazy, I'm almost blind seeing white dots everywhere... LOL! I thought sites with white text and black background were a thing from the first times of Internet and that they had almost dessapear! :)

Hey, sorry for the rant, but maybe the content of your blog is good enough, it just happens that I couldn't read it for more than one minute!!!

Again, sorry, I just had to say this! Good luck!

I agree with black text on white. I have trouble reading it sometimes.

Hey gg! Believe me, white text over black background is part of the past, just like green over black was first! :)

And oh well, I didn't disappear, I just had other things to do... But it's true that is hard to read for long times that white text, at least for me, after a while I start to see dots everywhere, LOL!

BTW, if it were easier to read white text I think we should see bigger sites like Google, Yahoo, MSN or IGN (just to mention a games related site) using that design...

Of course, this is just my humble opinion, and I don't want to ask people to change their designs to my likings, but I just wanted to say it: please, no more white text over black backgrounds! Thanks! :)

Good luck to you all! And excuse me for my poor english!

Regards.

Anthony- actually it's a proven scientifical fact. It's easier for the eyes to look at something light in the dark rather than something dark in the light. Why your eyes are having to look at somehting white in the black your eyes will pick up anything bright a lot easier and quicker and a lot crisper cause your eyes are wider open. You know how if you turn all the lights out you can see anything bright in a room real crisp and easier. Just how the eyes work cause they are looking for light. Make them wider open and look for the light it's easier.

So yes it actually should be easier. But I've had no complaints from any other readers about reading the white text on the black background so I'm not ready to change that appearance cause I like the way it is. I have more problems reading black on white but hey that's just me I guess.

But I do hope you do come back cause this is a very good site for news, analysis, reviews, previews, and podcasts with a lot of good staff with very good thoughts. So I hope your color preferences don't affect your reading of this blog.
