Killzone: Shadow Fall Has No Logo Screens or Warnings on Start-Up, Loads Straight to Main Menu

One aspect of video games synonymous with this generation is the plethora of screens that some games show before you even get to the main menu. There are developer and publisher logos, epilepsy and dolby screens, some of which can cumulatively top out at close to a minute or two before the gamer is even at the title’s main menu. This was something the developers at Guerrilla Games wanted to change in their upcoming first-person shooter, Killzone: Shadow Fall.

That's great, hopefully more games will start doing it. I wish they did the same with those safety warnings, there should be a checkmark to disable it

Xsilver945d ago

i Still like to see it but if they do once it like the first time you turn on the game i wouldn't mind.

HapPy dance
NO mOre splash screens

Agreed. All logotypes, disclaimers etc. should be shown the very first time the game is started. After that it should be straight to the game main menu. Had this thought for a long time.

Really glad that GG could manage this on their own.

FIFA 13 and FIFA 14 are the worst,
You have to press X to pick your language,
Then you have to press Start to go to the EA logo,
Press X to cancel that
On the FIFA logo screen you have to press Start again, it then connects to the internet.
Then X again on the autosave screen
After that you have to pick your presets which takes another 3 presses of the X button…………

Hopefully you get my drift, it is a total pain in the buttocks just to have a quick game with your mates.

This on top of not having any load times after the first 30 seconds is just amazing.
Instant gaming FTW!

Bringing it back to the old days where you turned on a game, pressed a button, and you were in in under 10 seconds. Love it!

Misaka_x_Touma945d ago

that never happened on PlayStation maybe the other system.

sinjonezp945d ago

He is talking about n64 SNES genesis days where games come right on as soon as you pop a cart in.

sigfredod945d ago

They should play only the first time you play the game, then you should be able to turn it off, some are really long

dredgewalker945d ago

Agreed, sometimes I just really want to get to that start screen immediately when I load up a game.

Would love for EA to do this. They plaster so many splash screens for themselves, the developer, the engine, the physics engine, the coffee shop where the director gets his morning cup o' joe, and every possible partner they had making the game it is really annoying every time you start the game....particularly in ME3 where it would randomly freeze on me and I'd have to restart.

Don't see it happening with them though...their ego wouldn't allow it.

SeanScythe945d ago

This should be standard, we don't need warnings for every game. We don't need the move instructions every time I start a game just because it supports the move controller. Make a section in the options for Warnings and if people need to read them they can.

TransientDreamer945d ago

Completely agreed. Or find a way to integrate them into the tutorial or opening cinematic. Just don't make them into a speed bump, or a chore to be clicked through.

rainslacker945d ago

You can thank the people that were silly enough to throw their controllers at the TV or knock over a lamp while playing a move/wii game for those couple of screens.

Maybe make it so they don't show up if you don't have the camera on, and no Move controller assigned. Otherwise you know some dumb ass will sue them because they didn't actually have a disclaimer.

theXtReMe1945d ago

Yeah, I hope every game is like this. It's so ridiculous the screens we have to put up with. I can understand one screen for about 10 seconds that has everything on it, Dolby Digital, speed tree, and all of the other tools they use to develop their game with. But to have screen after screen after screen after screen for a minute or two is irritating.

Great job, Guerilla!

Godhimself_In_3d945d ago

Yes i hated that ps move screen the most smh
