Fanboy Article, considering most of the things u wrote were jst shown for abt 20min to the press a couple of days ago which i'm 90% sure u were not among, so basically your reasons were based on screenshots and word of mouth thats jst a couple of days old?! u fail my friend :)
"Return of the cover system" .......so, these are "Reasons To Be Wary IF YOU DIDN'T LIKE THE LAST INSTALLMENT"? "Killzone 3 has boring new weapons (so far, anyway), and don’t let those GFX-addled hacks tell you otherwise" I don't think I'll let a guy who hasn't played the game tell me otherwise, either. EDIT: Hey, you know you wanna bubble me up.
A first person cover mode that doesn't use the idiotic back to the enemy move like so many games is supposed to be a matter of concern? It's obvious the only PS3 this clown has played is at a kiosk.
well said cows boring new weapons, that doesn't make any sense. All that was shown was 1 level of a game that isn't even finished. Pathetic article from a blogger who comes off as a pretentious twat.
Comparing the weapons to R&C is just dumb, this isn't a game for cartoon like weapons. It's bad enough that there are jet packs, hopefully they aren't part of the MP. And I like the cover system.
This article should be renamed Infinite Resaons not to giove my shit site hits.
How the hell is my comment "off-topic" I'm talking about the AUTHOR.
Reason 1... Broken Cover System???? What??? KZ2 has the best cover system in FPSes (if there are any other that is), it worked perfectly. You seriously will whine about not able to pose a sh!t stance behind a wall?? Reason 2...Lacks Variety... Hasn't this been addressed. They already confirmed alien jungles, Ice level, nuclear devastated levels, space level.... Or are you gonna whine that they just showed you 1 single ice level. What more do you expect in games??? I mean wasn't this the same with Halo or CODMW2???? Reason 3... Tedious Guns.... WTF!!??? They show a 20 min demo and you can predict that all guns are boring. They showed 2 new guns in a demo and when were KZ2 weapons boring?? Sorry it couldn't live up to your Rachet and Crank arsenal, but the same is the case with any FPS. Reason 4.... And probably the most retarded reason of all. I would have even considered this if you said they would incorporate PS MOVE and that would cause imbalances, but 3D SERIOUSLY!!!! How many people will own a 3DTV by then??? I doubt more than a few thousand.... Quite whining.
Totally agree. I really dont know what hes talking about with the cover system. Why would I want to sit behind a box when i can use it as cover and peek round fom behing it? He's actually complaining about there being more variety. That's just plain stupid. He's basically saying that there is a variety of levels, but because he played a jungle level on Sonic 2 the game is derivative. Tedious guns? Yeah because everyone thought the lightning guns was dull...it needs more weapons yes, but compared to a lot of other games, the weapons were far from dull. 3D to cause imbalance? Why? Because I can judge where to throw a grenade? I have never ever had a problem with judging where someone is in relation to me. That is, by far, the weakest argument I have ever read on a site.
I find it rather hilarious how inconsistent his logic, if you can call it that, is. In the first reason, he recommends that KZ3 should conform to other shooters' methods, but suggests it shouldn't mold to them in the second and third reasons. Besides, the designers already said they are going to do environments unlike any other game and add way more variety to the guns while maintaining the lore. He's not a smart cookie, methinks. On a side note: Reported link for being a blog entry - not a valid article.
not every one likes killzone i for one didnt enjoy number 2 because of the controls preferd number 1 and i aint no fanboy. Each to there own i say and unless they improve the controls reach and black ops are the only fps i will buy this year
That's perfectly fine to not enjoy the game. Not everyone will/does. That's not the issue here though. The issue is that the author of this article is making claims for arguments that have no ground. It's a troll post as far as i'm concerned.
Spoken like a true one console owner.
has many good points...to me killzone 2...was a huge hype machine i played it...and even though it looked good, it def wasnt anything that hasnt been done before..and done ALOT better fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me, ill rent killzone 3, if its mind blowing ill buy it. Same with halo reach. Its being hyped up, and halo 3 didnt do anything for me so ill also be renting that, if its all they say ill buy it
I couldnt care less about the opinion of any random blog about KZ2 or KZ3. I love (notice PRESENT tense, still playing it) KZ2 and I know KZ3 will be better in every way. The only factor that makes me "wary" about KZ3 is GG trying to cater the lame COD heavily autoaiming based, zero skills and twitchy masses. I would be extremely disappointed if KZ3 loses personality because of it. "don’t let those GFX-addled hacks" <-- this shit is too good. I know fans of other consoles would love to have those "hacks" running on their console of choice. @bellow Learn to use reply if you intend to call other dumbass.
Dumbass Strange Evil since when do Halo lack variety in its levels? Halo takes you to deserts, forest, snowy places, spaceships, swamps, cities, and so on.
That is what I meant to say 0_0 Just read what I said " They already confirmed alien jungles, Ice level, nuclear devastated levels, space level.... Or are you gonna whine that they just showed you 1 single ice level. What more do you expect in games??? I mean wasn't this the same with Halo or CODMW2???? " I meant KZ3 having all those variety is now similar to games like Halo which also have variety in their levels... Read properly before you pull the trigger.
Oops my bad dude. Should have read that more carefully.
KZ3 will be Awesome,nuff said.
Lame Article. Period! KZ3 will Be Awesome, be "wary" now for all I care, You'll be Enjoying it as Much as Everyone Else...
My guess the writers mum didn't get him a PS3
lol yeah I know.
-_- Some one is very cranky, seriously point one has been addressed in developer videos, point 2 really, point 3 we haven't seen it all, and point 4 is actually interesting.
funny a third killzone comes out and they bash it when all we been seeing is articles of the game and some videos that where leaked out but when a halo game comes out they dont make "think twice before buying this game" articles just move on if u dont want to buy it then dont buy
I agree with the imbalance of multiplayer but I think everything else will be a non-factor.
If they don't raise the leveling cap or don't fix it from being so easy to obtain, then its a rental. Seriously, also add some dlc post release if they're not going to fix the leveling cap. @Fishy fingers It won't win half of those awards next year. I don't have to tell you what game is coming out thats going to have a say on the matter.
"Tedious new guns Killzone 3 has boring new weapons (so far, anyway)," what a fail fanboy! the new gun "wasp" IS AWESOME!!! http://i48.tinypic.com/6gy0...
Is this for real? I just screw-faced like a jamaican hearing about this news. http://www.youtube.com/watc... who wrote this? The White Boy hatcher?!?
haha yes n we want him dead...loool
Was not tacked on. So why are you saying this? Maybe you are are a space Nazi in disguise instead of an impartial journalist LoL
Wow this article is lame. Bred from fear no doubt and the game is a year away. Just sad.
Hmmm. Interesting. I'll consider a few of these problems while I'm playing Killzone 3. ;)
no matter what they will find any little reason to complain about first the controls which the developers stated they are responsive now we have a so called journalist nitpicking through whats been confirmed he complained about the cover system WHAT IS WRONG! with the cover system? then lacks variety? COME ON! why did this even get approved?
It's a FPS.
Variety is welcome. i liked KZ2 guns. don't worry about the 3d, 3D is OPTIONAL. the cover system was good, you wouldn't survive if you didn't use it sometimes because of the amazing AI. Probably GG will fix the problems of killzone2.. they getting lots of feedback.
Most of this guys points kinda fall flat. I can understand the last few but I don't see what is wrong with the cover system. Ya you can crouch but the cover system makes such things feel a touch more fluid and gives you a nice little peek over what your hiding behind. I was disappointed it wasn't in multiplayer but guerrilla made a point when they said it slowed down the game too much as everyone just hid behind stuff.
None of those reasons made sense. Thats how I can sniff out a fanboy. No game has more concepts prototypical to its genre than HALO...should I be wary of that fanboy???. NOooo right. The only mistake killzone ever made is trying to give todays gamers a unique experience. Tactical gameplay, a cover system, smart AI, a difficult game, great immersion, and new concepts. Now obviously people want the same concepts and feel over and over from the shooter genre. The controls we're bad at one point I dare somebody to play that game today after the patches, and say that you would be exposed as an obvious fanboy. I thought the guy had guy had good reasons, Wh knows what these jungles and nuclear wastelands will look like. I can't wait for them to show this game, I can tell from the hate it will eclipse the whole FPS genre. BE afraid fanboys be very afraid hahaha!!!!
Wow, I think Killzone is the only franchise which evokes such strong emotions that people are warning not to buy the game. Is that what this no name blogger is actually saying? I thought I had seen it all. What a joker.
And he didn't even mention the 'heavy' controls.
This guy is a tool? He does a terrible job of trolling. I clicked out of his article within 10 secs and forgot about him in the last 5.
1) What the hell was wrong with the cover system? It placed you right into a fire-fight, and made you chose your cover carefully. What's wrong with just crouch-moving? It's about as intuitive to a soldier as flailing your arms around screaming "Shoot Me!" 2) Oh heavens, Guerilla want to add a bit of variety. I wished they would just stick to a single corridor! 3) Maybe I don't want a land shark or a shrink ray in my gritty WWII in Space game? Maybe I like having practical (comparatively) weaponry in my war game? 4) I'm sure the increased accuracy in depth perception will help those same players a lot... when they don't have head aches, blurred vision. And who says the depth perception is actually accurate? It's still relative to the size of the TV screen. So 4ft in game will not necessarily translate to 4ft in real life.
"Articles" like this undermine the quality and purpose of this site, without a doubt. This is nothing but flamebait, regardless of your opinion of KZ2.
I do kind of have the same reservations myself about the new environments. It IS cliche in my opinion to have the extremes of jungle and arctic levels in the same game. They can probably make up for that though if they make sure the story is really polished and engaging. And as for the cover system, if they say it will be refined then it probably will be a little better than in KZ2, which was admittedly a little rough feeling. It's not necessary for multiplayer, but in single player its nice to be able to lean out from a wall and take shots while exposing yourself to as little enemy damage as possible.
This guy is a joke. I tried 3Dtv yesterday and it was amazing. I can only imagine what KZ3 will look like in 3D. Somebody tell this fool to stop hating.
move along folks, absolutely NOTHING to see here... lol :)
Dogs. People got really excited when they saw attack dogs in concept art, and disappointed when they didn't show up in KZ2. Now KZ3 has jetpacks while dogs have yet to be seen.
Environments will be 10 times bigger than in the last killzone it will almost be like a free roam FPS explore helghast culture This game will show cities and everyday life on helghan it will be some what like GTA but everybody is your enemy. You get to fight on the intruder(Agile platform vehicle in the screen shots) The feeling of being completely outnumbered being searched for just you and your compadres sneaking up on enemies with brutal melee stealth kills
the ps3 is a monster and it gets better with time ..while others show thieir age
telekeneticmantis almost none of what you said is true btw
Is this article trying to be serious or is it a joke.
one of them being hype
So going by your logic. We should just completley disregard Halo:Reach and Gears of War 3 right?
It's like 2005-2009 all over again.
Blog, ridiculous opinion = no thanks.
I think they should just eliminate the cover system, especially since its not even used online, adding prone would be better all together, but you know, this game is realistic or whatever right? Also, whoever thinks its okay for GG to include cover for the single player and not the multiplayer needs to be fired, demoted, whatever, to get them away from this game as much as possible. We need people that are gonna push for the perfect game, and KZ2 with its laggy controls, broken(but lag free) online, and a cover system that is only implemented for the single player, I could go on too about the weapons, how boring they were without being able to upgrade them in any sort of way. Fix those things and all my worries about KZ3 will have been appeased.
I love KZ2 and ill love KZ3 just the same. I'm very excited and looking forward to it. The only opinion that matters on what I like and don't like is MINE.
