jaosobno  +   1478d ago
Can anyone describe it for us working people? Is it any good?
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1478d ago
It's...

*faints*

Just try it.
Megaman42xX  +   1478d ago
I knew I forgot something, Thanks.
I also went through the tutorials And there's a few other things. A blade launcher weapon, and a rocket launcher. You can find upgrade boxes throughout the level that will, well upgrade your selected weapon. Also the slow-down can be activated by hitting A in a direction and then holding LT
Megaman42xX  +   1478d ago
Yes
I liked it, here are some of the things I was hoping to figure out.
The slowdown seems to be auto. It activated when I got shot a lot. If you hold the dash for too long you overheat and aren't able to use it for a few second. You're able to swap out any gun for another you see on the ground using RB.

Guns I've seen so far:
Shotgun
Assault Rifle
Machine Gun
Heavy Machine Gun
Sniper Rifle
Emp grenade/Basic grenade

Controls:
LB to dash
RB Reload
LT to Aim
RT to shoot
A to Dodge/Roll (no jump)
B Melee
X didn't seem to do anything
Y Throw Grenade
jaosobno  +   1478d ago
Sounds great, thx for the info dude!
teedogg80  +   1478d ago
@ Megaman42xX
X is used to take cover. Anyway this game is REALLY good. I'm sold on it now for sure.
matt4107  +   1478d ago

Guitarwolf  +   1478d ago
PSN usually updates between 4-6pm cst. Unless of course we get this sooner which would be a nice treat.

"OK guys, do you want the good news first or the bad news first?"
"Bad news"
"Xbox Live is going to cost more from September"
"Booo!"
"The good news is that you get the Vanquish demo a few hours before the PSN!"
"Wooo! That almost makes it worth it!"
HungPHAT  +   1478d ago
True ! The PS3 is the Lead platform ! Don't believe me ? Just google it guys ...anyways day one for sure ... Ya RDR was a xb port that turned out meh and Mafia 2 was a shitty port from the PC ! Vaquish was made on PS3 then ported to XB ! Just like Hot pursuit and Metal of Honor will be this year

Don't get
Too exited. It was meant to be lead platform for RDR and Mafia2 and look what happened there. It's multiple format, need say no more.
jaosobno  +   1478d ago
@iistuii

RDR - no lead platform, game developed by two separate teams. Since game was developed on GTA4 engine where 360 was lead, well, you get what I mean.
Mafia 2 - PC was lead.

Please don't insinuate that PS3 lacks power. You know very well that that isn't true (even most prominent sites mention PS3 as the most powerful console). After all we have visual and gameplay masterpieces (exclusives) to prove you wrong. The best looking games of this console generation always came from sony first party studios and no matter how much you try to deny that, the games speak for themselves.

In all honesty, when PS3 is lead, 360 version doesn't suffer. When it's other way around, PS3 suffers. Most developers prefered 360 because it's essentially a PC in a different box (and most developers come from era before consoles were strong - PC developers) and PS3 actually requires you to use your brain when developing and learn new things - this is obviously something that some developers dislike.

As a PS3 owner I'm glad to see that developers are starting to switch to PS3 as lead. In that case nobody gets damaged. 360 owners shouldn't care because they do not suffer a drop in quality when porting and PS3 owners can be happy because they get normal performance and graphics, so everybody wins.
