    Default Dou you think Maria Santiago.....

    Should have been confirmed for the game at this stage?


    I feel it has ruined a good surprise and they should have either not told us, or just kept hinting it.



    Also do you think she will still love Dom, or do you think she will be messed up? Baring in mind she might be "hardened" now compared to when she was with Dom.

    Actually while i was playing gears and picked up info about this "Maria" i just didn't give a damn and thought she was some random backround-detail-story or something.
    It appeared it weren't. Well i think Epic should have kept it unknown for us that she will be in the game, woulda been much more twisting and interesting to find out for one self that she is in the game. Lol, i suck at explaining things in english.

    I got what your saying.



    Yeah i would have liked to have found out in the actual game, like Marcus sees her and he's like "holly ****!" and we're like "Who is she?!" and then marcus would say "Maria?" and then we would be saying "Holly ****!". lol

    It just means that there's probably more to her story than whether or not she's alive.

    Anyone else thinking that they announced her but really mean to kill her off to drive Dom's Character in the third game?

    Well, I believe the picture of Maria that is shown in the magazine is how Dom sees Maria in his thoughts and memories. Maria went missing on E day, and 14 years later I highly doubt she is able to keep a "clean" appearance: hair looks to groomed, and the clothes aren't crappy looking enough. I think at this point she would look like your average stranded. In Gears 2 I think we will just get the backstory on her with Dom having flashbacks, and Dom will be looking for her and A.) she is already dead B.) he will find her alive C.) Dom will die and someone else will find her D.) Dom won't find her in Gears 2, and the search will carry on into Gears 3.

    IT never says shes alive, just that she survived the initial attack and MAY have been spotted at a hospital.

    Agreed Maria looks too clean and well for her character model to be anything other than something that appears in flashbacks. I think we'll see flashbacks of her and Dom together to try and tug at our emotions. We'll have more of a connection to the characters if we see them happy and well together before Emergence Day.

    Thanks for the balloon.

    I'm going to go ahead and throw this out there, and this is WAY OUT THERE. Do you think that there might be a possibility that Tai, Dom, and Maria are connected? As in Tai is possibly Maria's brother, relative, or just knows Maria, and Tai may have some more information on Maria's whereabouts.

    Your icon spam is... interesting... and yet disturbing to the point of suicide... Interesting.. perhaps this is why so many Gears fans have popped up dead on the forums as of late?

    It's kind of both for me. While I sort of wish they had kept it in the dark for a surprise, I am also a total Gears junkie that NEEDS to know every tidbit of info I can get my greasy fanboy hands onto, so I am happy both ways

    Ugh, sorry for the double post, just could have edited the last one, guess that was a blonde red-head moment? Hmmm

    I love your ideas and theories, but this time I don't think that would work. As above said he's Asian, they are Mexican. He might have info though. But in the interview with the guy who voices Marcus, he said he's coming back to do the stranded guy's voice again so if anyone is going to have the info on maria I'm guessing its either him or Dizzy. as Dom was using the stranded to try and find her.

    Yeah, calling Tai her brother/cousin/relative was going out on a limb, but there is definetely a possibility that Tai, or perhaps Dizzy, has some information on Maria's whereabouts.

    I think Dizzy is the most likely to know having been stranded and all.

    Yea that sounds possible. It would be cool if Dizzy was the last person to see her. But I hope Dom finds her. I can't wait to see what will happen to her and Dom GOW 2.

    This is weird. When I first heard she existed back in gears of war 1, I thought suddenly ," oh, she's in gears of war 2." And it looks like I'm right!

    No, he is not the most likely person to know. The standed guy from the first one who Dom knew from asking him to find out info on her is the most likely person to know. As he will be in the second game.

    I read somewhere that Dom's search for Maria will be a major driving point in the plot of Gears Of War 2.
