I thought Guerrilla Games was European.

Lunatic

What does that have to do with anything?

@above
I thought he was Austrian? I know he is "Dutch" lol. I think I needed a "/s".

hay2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

Yeah, they're dutch. But you have to have american-esque elements in game to appeal more in US, Europe doesn't give a damn so we have it like that.

Is it me or this is weaker review than others? I love Zero Punctation but this was more bland and hardly as clever and accurate as previous.
Before anyone calls me butthurt Killzone fanboy: I found Bulletstorm more enjoyable.

Also he didn't mention my biggest gripe with this game. Ridiculously moronic storyline.

@Perjoss: Yeah, I know, but he's often more spot-on than here. Bulletstorm review is way better than this one and it's only week older.

Perjoss2463d ago

@ hay

zero punctuation is very funny the first few times you watch him, after that you start to notice a pattern, his problem is he only seems to do 1 flavour of humour, almost as if he writes a normal review and then passes it through a zero punctuation filter or template, the reviews are all very similar.

captain-obvious2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

this guy talks too much and too fast

nice review tho

LunaticBrandon2463d ago

@zootang

Did you watch the video? He seemed to think Killzone 3 was made by Americans.

If Ben only played with the Move for 10 minutes, he didn't take enough time to get used to it and figure out the perfect combo of control options.

I always enjoy his reviews of games I loved the most. Like GOW3 and this.

distorted_reality2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

I think the point is though if that you're not enjoying a control option within 10 minutes, then you probably won't at all.

I'm not talking about skill level, learning how to use it effectively etc, as obviously that all comes with time.

There's a difference between learning how to use something and ENJOYING how to use something, and in the gaming world, learning how to use a control option shouldn't be a chore.

Also, will +bub anyone who can tell me how my earlier comment was trolling lol.

bwazy2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

No review on the multiplayer?

Anyways, theres quite a few things I've found wrong in the video, I won't explain them all, but the most obvious one was when he said that PS3 USERS SHOULD SHOOT WITH R2!

Comon now, every PS3 game in existance (that I know of) uses r1 and L1 and aim and shoot. Kinda makes me think he loves xbox.

/sigh

Hes still funny though.

OhReginald2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

R2 is isn't even a trigger on the ps3 controller. Its a pedal. Triggers are concave. PS1 had R1 to shoot, PS2 had R1 to shoot, and PS3 has R1 to shoot. Unless the PS4 controller has a trigger button then that will be the shooting button.

R1 button is the shooting button for playstation 3 shooters. PERIOD.

And whats the point of even mentioned that R2 pedal should be for shooting when you can customize your controls to your liking. Its called flipping in kz3 control options menu. Flip R2 R1 Flip L2 L1 etc etc

Yahtzee thinks that games should be able to stand up on their single player component alone, so he never reviews multiplayer.

thief2463d ago

So did he review Halo 3?

guigsy2463d ago

Yes and he slated Halo 3 for that very reason. He said Reach stands up on its single player though.

Shmotz2463d ago

It's just what he reviews a fair bit of his games on. Bioshock on PS3 used L2/R2 to fire and whatnot and I hated it tbh. L1/R1 for life!

jerethdagryphon2463d ago

he nio longer reviews as review his reviews are entertainment thats what hes paid for

its expected his review will be like that as for his speech... its called zero punctuation for a reason

citan2463d ago

Red Dead Redemption doesn't (which makde me change weapon for the first 15 minutes), Bioshock 2 doesn't. They're both badly ported from X360. I never understood why on Earth I'd have to shoot with my middle, not index finger. Index is faster, more precise. People who invented guns got it right hundreds of years ago.

krisq2463d ago

The patch for RDR rectified that. You can now shoot with L1/R1 combo.

Bodster2463d ago

Believe it or not my middle finger is a better trigger finger than my index, I always use it for games/paintball/airsoft etc :)

mindedone2463d ago

The middle finger has a slower response time than the index finger. But, I will agree that it feels awkward at first.

RedDead2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

well, it's quite obvious you don't know him at all. He barely ever reviews Multiplayer and believes a game should be able to stand on it's single player alone. He's not a fanboy at all. He likes...Half life 2. SotC, res 4( I think) and a few more I don't remember...Amnesia the dark decent is another I think. Also Bulletstorms devs first game. Don't think he likes Bulletstorm though.

Oh I agree aswell, L2 R2 suck imo. Shoulda copied the 360 or stuck with the Ps2 one.

Still I find it odd how Guerilla games have somehow become a mascot for Sony these days. They've only made 1 great game imo. Which was Killzone 2. the other 9 vary between good and mediocre. Insomniac and Naughty Dog have a great track record with almost nothing but great games.

krisq2463d ago

I hate shooting with R2.

SmokeyMcBear2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

yeah, im never going to understand that one, R1 is by far the most natural position for your index finger to rest on. Its right there, with no movement needed. Its like what the x button is to the thumb, the R1 button is the index finger. When they use R2, its infuriating, and is stupid. The R2 and L2 buttons have always been secondary, and require either an extending motion of your index finger, or you can use your middle finger to use those buttons, but they should definitely not be used for primary functions. Another reason why madden pissed me off, was using the L2 and R2 as primary function buttons, god dammit. And no, dont tell me triggers help, because its still a strained motion with your fingers, unlike using r1 being more natural.

Redempteur2463d ago

Pure hate for the game for the sake of it .

so it doesn't like move because he is too lazy to calibrate it ?

couldn't he look for the boutons , and how they are used in the freaking tutorial ?

Also shooting with R1 is better .

Perjoss2463d ago

there's always one isn't there...

mate, you're not supposed to take his reviews seriously, 99% of the time he speaks negatively about pretty much everything, its funny, i guess...

Someone's a bit sensitive about their British heritage I see...

IQUITN4G2463d ago (Edited 2463d ago )

I got a bit pissey over the one he did for Halo3 and wrongfully called his type of take as not all at funny, but now i'm less daft with the over protective thing, it's easy to see he's definitely good at what he does .I can understand why some might take offense to this but killzone is an easy target anyway
