Some of my favorite phares are:

Ownage
Pwned
Powned
Pownage

And what my friends call " The single worst name you can a gamer"

I was certainly a fan of the UT announcer, but I don't think it suits Gears of War. Reason number one, why is there an announcer? It made sense in UT because it was a tournament, it was a blood sport. But now we have Gears of War, and it doesn't make any sense at all. Cliffy is trying to show his solidarity here and isn't going to be borrowing too much from the Unreal franchise (although I wouldn't be disconcerted if he threw in the Ripper :P) but that doesn't mean he has forgotten the popularity of the announcer. If you have watched any of the trailers you will notice that Marcus and the other characters will 'announce' things such as "Nice shot!" or react in a satisfactory way when you splatter some poor Locust's brains out on the street. So will there be a traditional announcer? I highly doubt that, but I wouldn't be surprised to see those audio cues slip into the multiplayer.

^^^love that idea, the players can be their own anouncers! that would be sooooo cool! ex. whenever Marcus chainsaws someone he says 1 of 5 different phrases, their should be a couple different phrases for each type of kill, and the phrases should be different for each player, like marcus would say something different than dom, but then would would the locust say, "ahfkasdfhaksdhfkshfkashfkhfkahghg"?!

They could roar maybe, or laugh in a sinister way. Maybe they have their own barbaric sounding language :)

Gears, to me, is not like the tournament style MP of UT. UT's announcer is great, always good to hear so much variety in deaths. But for Gears, it's more tactical strategy, an announcer would be a loud obnoxious nuisance to me, especially when I'm sneaking around. Can't tell you how many times the fanmade announcer to Counter Strike made me screw up. Hate servers with it. And as Snake said, it seems characters announce things and say gestures.

If there's an option to turn it off or on though, I'll probably switch it from time to time.

An announcer for Gears would fit IMO. But just have the voice and no writing on the screen to tell you what you've done. I haven't seen too much of the HUD, but I'd rather have a clear screen in multiplayer than a bunch of writing telling me how other people have killed, or been killed. That would be pretty sweet to have the option of voice acting between Marcus and a Locust. Each voice be different depending on team you're on.

Makes it feel like UT or Quake, leave it out, just wait till Unreal Tournament III comes out on 360.

ok, first of all, is the guy on unreal tournament the same as on unreal championship?

and no, i do not think they should have the announcer in gears...... i just like the characters saying what they say, like grenadier elites' "fresh meat" when you chainsaw, or Marcus' "back in your hole!"

Hear hear. The minimal action dialog and cinematic conversation in GOW is perfect the way it is.
