Ye I used to play Warhawk every day.

It's funny because I always used the sixaxes for flying warhawks and steering tanks etc! haha it was new at the time so wanted to use it.

I actually got really good with it and could out-manoeuvre most people in the air quite easily!

I still think more devs should incorporate sixaxes into their games, just do it properly an well thought through, they could easily have functions like push controller to mele etc in FPS. At least have the option so you can toggle it off/on if you want.

Everyone just totally ignores it now (for the most part), what a waste! A fully-functional motion sensor inside EVERY PS3 controller and almost NO ONE ever uses it outside of Sonys 1s Party Devs, and even then....

WhittO you are spot on with the Sixaxis underutilization. Heavenly Sword and Folklore to this day still are the two games for best using the function I think.

^^ Ye I loved using it in Folklore, it made capturing soo much more meaningful and satisfying as opposed to just pressing a button.

That's an example of sixaxes done right, you didn't use it for everything, it was just another input for the game that had a specific function.

Only 70? I think I've got over 250. And that only counts ranked play so it doesn't count split-screen games that I played a LOT. And bear in mind I'm one of the LESS dedicated players. :)
Kleptic  +   1454d ago
I had over 100 hours in the first month, of which never counted properly because the stat system was beyond broken when the game shipped...

and as far as ranked play that actually ticked, i think i'm at like 70'ish...

and I agree...that is NOTHING compared to what I think this article is talking about with dedicated players...many say that it takes nearly 1000 hours to reach general...and there are still guys that play it nearly daily and hit general in like 2008...

This seems like a competition so I will say my play it time is OVER 9000 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!
dinkeldinkse  +   1454d ago
I have about 1000 hours,
But most of that is non-ranked because of split screen.

i was mediocre at this game.. this game came out when i wasn't to fond of shooters
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1454d ago
Awesome. Can't wait to become an ace in Starhawk also
telekineticmantis  +   1454d ago
Wonde what determines a diehard
because I'm not much of a trophy hunter.
Kleptic  +   1454d ago
if they are talking about the people that have played it regularly since the game released in 2007...probably something around 1000+ hours...shouldn't have anything to do with trophies...just the fans that stayed competitive in it for the past 4 years nearly...

I won't get in. I just run and drive around like a headless chicken getting owned. All the time though I have a smile on face because it is so much fun.

My typical Warhawk experience

ME: I need a jeep, NOW!
I later find a jeep and start driving like a mad man, swerving, off bridges down cliff etc
Team: Why are you driving like that?
ME: I'M RUNNING!
Team: From?
ME: EVERYTHING.
Pintheshadows  +   1454d ago
I got in a jeep the other day and a guy jumped on the gun. I wanted to tell him it was his funeral. I drove about 100 yds and hit a proxy mine. I laughed.
ThanatosDMC  +   1454d ago
Yeah, I hope Starhawk uses proxy chat.
dkgshiz  +   1454d ago
Damn, I wish this game was coming out during the summer time. More games need to have summer releases.
