5 more days until pure bloody FPS BLISS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Genesis53221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Yay! I'm pretty freakin' happy about this. It's going to be great can't wait to play it.

Ryo-Hazuki3221d ago

When i bought SF4 last Wednesday....i asked if they're was going to be a midnight release, well.....they didnt know lol Maybe things changed as of today or something

Lifendz3221d ago

I hope Sony never again makes a game available to the press so far in advance of release. Why? Because dodging spoilers has proven neigh impossible. The last 2 episodes of ListenUP were just full of KZ2 spoilers. I listened thinking they would give the usual spoiler warning but they didn't. And with so many people on my friends list already having the game it really is starting to make me antsy for it.

Preordered mine and can't wait. Ordered surround sound headphones for it. Killzone 2 set to redefine FPSs. Fanboys miss out.

I cant wait to play the amazingness that is K2, but I think I'll jump right to online. Oh yeah, K2 is the second largest mountain in the world I think that might give us some indication to how awesome Killzone 2 is going to be! muahaha

I have something else that is rising due to all this excitement..well not really..

Nonsense 4 Gamers3221d ago

Well the A-Holes at my local GameStop keep telling me "There aren't enough pre-orders for a midnight launch" even though I know they're full of #@$%. I told them about the articles like this that I've been reading online and they said "You can't believe everything you read on the internet."

I downloaded the demo from the UK store and pre-ordered it from Best Buy who IS having a midnight launch :D

BiG_LU3221d ago

Hell yea son!!! I can freaking wait and the day is so close.

king dong3221d ago

only 5 days and i still haven't got my ps3 yet!! i've just had to shell out more than a few grand cash for a new car :-( and the missus is still not letting me sell the wii, wii fit, family trainer and about 6 games..i ask her why everyday????????

cod4 is getting stale again(no challenge anymore), and battlefields servers are hit and miss, so that can end up frustrating at times! halo and l4d are both super games, but i want a new shooter to play. and 32 player killzone is where i want my new fix to come from!! i cant wait to long. and now you can buy an adaptor so you can use the 360 pad aswell....the wii's gotta go!

yeah i'm looking forward to halo wars, but it aint no killzone thats for sure! and shooters are what i play more than anything.

enjoy people, ill be there soon!

Marquis_de_Sade3221d ago

Screw the midnight launch, I have the Collectors Edition preordered on shopto.net for £33, usually get games a day early and sometimes even 2 days early.

My call to Gamestop:

Me: "Are you going to have a midnight release for the game?"
Gamestop: "No"
Me: "Why?"
Gamestop: "Because there isn't enough hype for it."
Me: o_0 "What?"

Of all the things you could say about KZ2, "it doesn't have enough hype" is not one of them. More advertising yes. Hype, no.

butterfinger3220d ago

If you were honest with yourself, you would admit that you can't afford a PS3, have never played the demo, and have been praying everyday that KZ2 flops since you will be missing out on one of the best FPS this gen. If I'm being honest with myself, I suppose I must admit that I feel sorry for you.

earwax3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

This site is total Bull $hit and so PS3 biased it makes me sick. To the LOSER above, I do have a PS3 and it is great at ONE thing.......collecting dust. The KZ2 demo was LAME and I will buy the game after it hits $40 bucks in a month.

butterfinger3220d ago

Keep saving you milk money, little guy. Maybe your mom can up your allowance or you can ask for a PS3 for your birthday/Christmas?

Fantastic news. I expect a few hundred more stores to do midnight launches after the commercials hit.

jwatt3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Yea I went to go pay off the rest of my preorder today and they told me they're having a midnight launch.

Dark General3221d ago

Same here Jwatt. When i was preordering on Thursday the clerk said "We're having a midnight release, you should drop by". I think this will be my first midnight launch event.

Max Power3221d ago

since i live in LA i wasn't sure if the Gamestop that i pre-ordered would be doing a midnight launch, so looks like i have a call to make tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Gambit073221d ago

Max, which gamestop you're going to, I'm in NoHo.

Proxy3221d ago

I just pre-ordered on Amazon today. I want to got to the midnight launch if they're having it locally. Guess I'll have to cancel my Amazon order if I decide to.

wanderofys3221d ago

I live in a small town in Southwest Virginia and even our Gamestop is doing a midnight launch. I'm excited :)

Max Power3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

well silverlake area, but i pre-ordered it at the Glendale Galleria. the gamestop there is called "planet X"

UnDone143221d ago

ouuuu Glendale? I was born there living in Northridge now!

I preordered mine on Amazon with "Release Date" shipping. Hopefully I get it a day early!

What? No midnight launches for Halo Wars?

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3221d ago

No only bargain bin giveaways XD

silverchode3221d ago

Retard: Bot: But EDGE gave it a 7!
:)

Sir Ken_Kutaragi3221d ago

That's not the only thing that Rises when i think of getting my Copy of KillZone 2!!! ;-o

Dimitri3221d ago

So what if some crappy magazine gave it a 7. I have a different opinion about this game, and I am definetely getting this on the first day it comes out.

omodis4203221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Whats everyone going to play first? Multiplayer or Campaign?

Campaign

sonarus3221d ago

For KZ2 its a tough choice but i will probably do campaign. I will go thru campaign so as to give the servers enough time to settle. But if the servers hold up i will be running thru both side by side

Aclay3221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

I'm playing the Campaign first, that's what I always do. The Campaign will give you plenty of time to get used to using various weapons, so when you step in Multiplayer, you'll be ready to dish out some damage for sure.

For Killzone 2, I'm just as interested in the Story as the Multi-player.

Premonition3221d ago

Campaign for me since i know servers migt take a nice hit.

UltimateIdiot9113221d ago (Edited 3221d ago )

Straight to multiplayer. I won't have Friday for Killzone 2 due to a night exam. I need to make sure my friends don't rank way too far from me.

@Wolf
I have a friend just like that, it's kind of sad, he refuses to buy Killzone 2 because he mainly plays on single player (which he considers too short) and almost never any multiplayer aspect.

Wolf8733221d ago

and replay campaign for sake of fun. I never touch Multiplayer, just don't like it for some reason, maybe because I'll get owned too easily ;P. Only my bros enjoy Multiplayer aspects of games.

goflyakite3221d ago

I have a few friends like you, they never touch the online portion of games. Their reason is because there's too many people that play way too much and own everyone with ease.

I'm guilty for playing COD4 too much and being one of the crazy people online. But when it comes to something like NHL 09 online team play, I'm one of the teams losing 5-0, even though I consider myself pretty good offline. I still play online NHL though.

You might find it different with this game though, you never know.

DJ3221d ago

We're gonna play through the entire Campaign mode, then hop over to Multiplayer the next day.

Wolf8733221d ago

:D, I would give it a try. But I remember trying to play COD-4 online, and I had just started the game when I was brought down numerous times and in all those tries I only managed to kill one person! Just ONE! That says it all: I suck at online. I usually don't play shooter games, not these types, but Killzone looked exceptional so I thought I'd buy it, plus I tried out the demo and it didn't seem too hard.

Max Power3221d ago

the only game that i didn't start playing the campaign was COD 4 and that is because i specifically bought it to usher me into Online Multiplayer.

MUNKYPOO3221d ago

campaign, cause i have to brush up on my skills

redsquad3221d ago

Campaign... then campaign again.
I'm rubbish at multiplayer.:(

yardie873221d ago

since being privileged to get into BETA I will prolly be playing both kinda heavy!!! Cant wait...KZ2 got this in the bag! For now @least, until I"m conviced otherwise , that 360 has something EPIC to offer...no pun intended :)
