The folks at Gametrailers TV have managed to land the first Gears of War 2
footage and it will be shown on the May 9th show (1AM EST on SpikeTV). It's not clear how much footage we are going to get but it's going to be introduced by CliffyB. It still kills me that they keep landing all these deals and are still stuck in a 1AM time slot.
