Gears of War 2 Combustible Map Pack out today, have a free trailer

As was announced last night, the Gears of War 2 Combustible Map Pack is now available on Xbox Live for 800 MS Points. To celebrate, here are some screens and a video (after the jump) for you to look at with your eyes.

Looks hot, but I’m not sure if I’ll be downloading this until I know for a fact that Gears 2′s matchmaking problems are going to be fixed properly. Post-title update, my experiences in the game lobby have only gotten worse — a fact made even more annoying now that griefers have started hosting matches simply to quit them as soon as they’ve started — exploiting both the lack of host migration and the knowledge that it can take over fifteen minutes to get a game started.

Until I can play Gears of War 2 without bullsh*t like that happening, I think I’ll keep my 800 Points to myself.
