"In an odd turn of events for non-PS3 games making their way to the console, the Halo map "Wizard" is now playable in Unreal Tournament 3. Should this awaken Microsoft lawyers? We hope not."
I'm sorry Xbox guys i couldn't help myself.
you busy right now? lets go play Unreal
I'll send you an invite
I'm sorry Sony fans I couldn't help myself
that was funny
One thing you don't know this but UT3 is one of the few games on PS3 that let you send invites and chat and what not so.. Yeah i'll send you one ;)
is XBL even up? so hard to tell these days.
I guess you don't realize you can send invites to friends in UT III??
I'm still waiting for that Gears of War mod.
Gears code is on PC
Third person mod already created
It's only a matter of time.
well Relcom can take a joke clearly you guys can't.
and I...along with the *51* other people on my friends list... haven't had a single problem with LIVE
these things...tend to be exaggerated
well bloodgulch and sidewinder are both close to complete as well...but the creator claims to be 'scared' of cooking it for the PS3...I bet he does it anyway...I would assume most legal matters would only come into play if the kid tried to charge for it...
and yeah, Toughname you were already told about how UT3 has game 'invites'...but you weren't told that they do absolutely nothing...you get a message "so and so has invited you to a game"...ha...and thats it...you can then find his name on your list and 'follow player'...or back track all the way to the main menu...go to community...go to friends...and "look" at the invite he sent you...but as far as I can tell it still doesn't do anything...
when you recieve the message though, its not like it says accept or deny...it just tells you you are welcome to join him...which seems redundant, because you could do that anyway...
its CoD 4 that needs the invites...UT3 has it under control...sort of...you can join them through the friends list, just like Warhawk...
Yeah they do get exaggerated a bit. Like the time people thought the hardware failures for the 360 were exaggerated only to find out that they were in fact as bad as they though. lol
Nice work! Too bad they can't recreate the awesome gameplay though.
Stop Dissin ma blu ray playerz
See I can Joke too.
Do you feel any dumber then you look and sound right now.
aww toughname has 51 friends on xbox live, I'm proud of him.
Get hang em high in there!
PLAY BEYOND DUDZ...PS3 IZ Z BESTEST!!!
Back to Radiant Silvergun on the Saturn...
I didn't put stars around 51 because I wanted to show everyone how many friends I had
51 should be a significant number to the Sony fanboys...hopefully you guys caught that
To Jenzo who said that its to bad it cant recreate the awesome gameplay.
I suspect you haven't played Unreal 3 yet? Anyone who compares this to Halo should be castrated.
Unreal feels like a game for men, and Halo feels like a game for children/people who like to jump like rabbits nonstop and unload multiple clips to get a kill or a no skill required sniper
Its just the map gemotrey. Nothing special. this has been happing on the PC for along time now.
I'll play Halo on PS3 while you Xbots do this all night.
lol MS lawyers?
the original Wizard wasn't quite a creative marvel...its a pretty generic FPS map
but this was a great map in the first 2 halos I wish they included it in Halo 3
Is this one of the popular Halo maps?
(sorry my Halo knowledge is very limited when it comes to multiplayer,i only played single)
too small a map for most games
oddball was fun though *the old teleporter-teleporter strategy*
They think that their system is so much better than the ps3, lol,, Most of them havent even played on a ps3 yet, but yet they open up their broke @ss mouths. I wonder what they are gonna say after we get in game xmb, and then home,,, I cant wait to see how they react.
I think you can....wait....
At the time the PS3 gets ingame xmb(what's taking so long? memory issues?) the 360 will probably have other newer features, that you in turn will have to wait for.
Once again Jenzo, you are making yourself look more and more like someone with no justifiable reasons behind your arguments.
For those of us who own all of the next gen systems, they will probably say that the PS3 is far more powerful
I love my 360, but i hate buying stuff for it especially considering Live has sucked major ass lately and i actually pay for that crap.
At least PSN is FREE and remember us "sony fanboys" get all of these extra maps and mutators to play with whereas the 360 version is stripped and pointless
By that logic, Forza wouldn't have physics as good as it does and such robust customization options, because it would be too busy catching up to Gran Turismo.
Creativity doesn't grow on trees.
True Xbots are nothing but budget gamers who wanted a cheap "PC" to play games on -guess what PC's games are waining!!!
ITs gonna be the PS3 era soon!!
And every one who has played my PS3 have regretted be inpatient and getting a budget PC aka xbox360...
The BLuray and multimedia fucntions alone are phenomenal!..Nothing comes close and and the updates keep rolling in...
HOME is gonna be awesome...
THis Unreal mod is amazing this is just the start of an amazing open approach for SOny and EPic.
My only regret is that OSX doesn't run on PS3 !
are very impressive!! It just brings a whole lot more to the game for the PS3
The action cam one is a good addition
cool, people were bound to make stuff like this- expect pretty much every halo map in UT3 sometime soon
bubbles for heyheyhey.
IMO the maps aren't what makes Halo a legendary fps that kills most competition when it comes to online console gaming. It's the amazingly gameplay.
You got to be kidding me right? Halo 3's online game sucks! And i own all 3 Halo games. You must not get out much.
Update: Well if the amount of people playing it is a gauge of just how good it is. Then Britney Spears and Nsync must have been awesome then, by that logic. Sales only mean "popularity" to me. I dont care what anybody says. and i agree, COD4 is better. And whats funny is i was going to emphasize the word "console" originally, but didnt out of laziness and figuring that people's common sense would kick in and tell them that for them
Read my comment again. I said most online console competition. IMO COD4 is better. If Halo 3's online is t3h suxXx0rz, how come it's one of the most played games on Live?
JENZO after responding to this third in a series of your terribly biased and pretty unhelpful comments i must say that it is clear now that you play very few games if you think Halo is the best online game.
are you actually comparing the average 10 year old community of Halo to the actually skillful game of Call of Duty 4? Or maybe you just cant live since death occurs with 2 bullets like reality rather then shooting whole clips in halo
I said that I think COD 4 is the best online game. Read the post above you again.
It's only on this site that games like Halo 3 and Super Mario Galaxy are considered jokes.
Yes, I compare the online experiences of Halo 3 and COD 4. What's wrong with that? I think they are both great games with their own ups and downs (although I prefer COD 4 on a personal note). The Halo community is great, with options to share your replays and create and share levels in the forge.
COD4 is very realistic and demands lots of skill. Have you tried the 'noob-tube'? It let's noobs kill skilled veteran players using the grenade launcher. Very balanced indeed... ;)
So lets make maps of it "because it sucks"
So how many people are playing this map? like 4 out of the 8 people who bought UT3 on the PS3? :)
so much, or that we really want to play Halo. Its jus the ...."WE CAN"
i tried the map out today and your right..... halo does suck...
For sucking so bad tons of people sure do seem to like it. Different strokes for different folks. The guy who made it obviousy likes halo.
personally, i'm waiting for the actual halo mod. weapons and everything..
i couldnt agree more the mods are amazing and they keep coming like crazy god bless open network
to be honest 360 gaming seems more expensive, trust me iv been there, n my ps3 cost me less overall cuz of the less peices of kit i bought was already built in, apart from the headset, i didnt buy that as i just found bluetooth headset lying around.
so im just gonna put it out there, XBOX GAMING IS NOT A BROKE A$$ JOB, ps3 is the cheaper mans console especially when its suppoes to last 10 years??
i own both 360 n ps3, more fun no 360 though,
Should I be excited for a map from a game I don't care about? I guess so just to brag to X-bots
If you dont care then why are you posting? Think before you speak.
I'm just saying that I don't care much for Halo, But I care very much for a free map
Maps are cool and all but its going to take more than a DM map to make Halo playable through UT3 on the PS3. It would take multiple new maps, new skins, new guns, new sound effects and a few mutators.
..Maybe someday but today is not that day..
so until then its back to playing UT3 with action cam/speed freak/super beserk
Wtf are you on about dude?
You can send out game invites in all good PS3 online games, at least that I know of... Resistance (the most complete game, online features wise, of this gen so far), CoD 4, Warhawk, UT3, ...
Sorry man, but you are gonna have to try harder...
Anyways, I guess this will be the only way to play Halo in true HD for a good while xD
"the most complete game, online features wise, of this gen so far"
Why did you have to go and say that? Now I have to be made to look like I am bashing a game I love (resistance). You obviously have not played halo3. I am not saying it is a better game or a good game or anything like that but online feature wise it is the king of this gen AT THIS POINT. I have spent hours with both and it is not even close. Again this is not to say halo is more enjoyable or anything like that, I am just saying it has way more online features and the party system has yet to be copied or beaten. I am not an x-bot, at this moment I don’t even own an xbox (though I am a fan of all 3 systems).
onto another game with 10 year old gameplay *yawn* who cares, UT3 is no better than the last 2 UT games and Halo just flat out sucks.
That would really stick it to Xbots, seeing as they will not be gettnig that game on XBLA.
My friend is close to completing his Star Wars inspired map & Mutator.
Should be about another week or so, I got a peek of it last night and OMG amazing & huge!
you guys gotta realise, n im sure most of you do, that the mods not going to change the gameplay, it may look like halo3 , it May look exactly like halo3 IT MAY EVEN LOOK BETTER THAN HALO 3, but it is in no way halo 3 gameplay, as thats what it is ,, game not just just visuals.
well there are already several guys in the community making full blown halo and gears mutators...Gears will actually be easy to mimick, gameplay wise that is (they are not able to fully convert all the sound over yet though, and proprietary voice acting like that brings in a lot of legal issues)...
and for halo some kid is slowling everything down, created a melee animation for several weapons, limits amount you can carry, and adds a reload function as well...that combined with more halo maps...and you have something similar to the gameplay overall...
however one user said it best in regard to turning UT3 into halo "that is like having a delicious chocolate cake, and then putting mustard flavored icing on it...just because you can"...the gears mod should be cool though...Gears pacing and squad stuff with 16 players instead of 8...the 3rd person cam works great (although some complaints that some skins take up too much of the screen), and with a rumored over the shoulder zoom update coming this week, as well as the infamous shaky cam sprint...will be pretty cool to see where things go...
its worth noting that everything I just mentioned is in regards to multiplayer only...no one is trying to make a gears single player mod that I know of...its just pretty elaborate mods to the standard multiplayer modes...just pointing out that there most definitely will be pretty accurate mimmicks of existing games coming fairly soon...
So one map constitutes an entire game? The Halo games are good but they're not that good.
Noodlecup's comments are ironic considering UT’s gameplay has barely change since the first in the series. There were a lot of long time Unreal fans left disappointed by UT3 and after playing the demo I found out why.
The only people that i have met that are impressed with UT3 are people who didnt play UT and UT 2004. It is a fun game but it even has the exact same guns as 04. Before some idiot who has never played halo jumps on that comment, they have added tons of new guns with each halo game. I can only flak gun so many people in my life before it gets old. Why exactly do we still have to switch to the impact hammer again? I thought halo paved the way for a melee button in 01. Resistance and every other game has copied this feature why not ut3 (resistance also copied the regen health system and final battle to blow up the core by shooting 4 pylons) Ohh yeah because it is still too busy copying doom. UT is fun don’t get me wrong but anyone talking about halo being more of the same in a convo about UT3 just shows how little they know about video game history.
Its a little ignorant to say that "only people that never played UT/04 are impressed with UT3"...
some of us like the back to twitch gameplay...some of us like no melee...some of us like the same core gameplay that we grew up on, back when it was the only good online experience available...and even a few of us still like picking up health packs...few things in gaming compare to going on a killing spree, and the intensity you feel knowing you have been under 20% health for the past 4 kills...
I have been an avid Unreal fan since the first game launched not longer after Quake 2...and I wouldn't take an UT labeled game any other way than how we got it...and its even more refreshing to have that speed and intensity on a console...only other port to a console like this that was even close was Quake III on the DC...which, while having a slim fanbase nowadays, is still regarded as one of the best console shooters ever...and definitely one of the best PC ports gameplay wise...
while I do agree that the switching to the impact hammer, then charging it, then gibbing a dude is a good bit of work for a rewarding close range kill...it makes them more rare, and more humiliating if you are stupid enough to let it happen to you...thats how it should be...I knife so many people in CoD 4 that it has totally lost that "the dude I just stabbed should just go kill himself" feeling that you get after splattering a guy all over your screen with an impact hammer...
I can take a far amount of slow realistic gameplay just like the next guy...but the sit back and just bum rush attitude of UT remains in tact with UT3...its back to actually learning where the best powerups are...controlling the map and getting the best weapons is where its at...its not a slow everything down...and make everyone more or less equally powerfull in UT3...games like that can very quickly turn into "who sees who first"...
the core gameplay mechanics of UT3 are what totally get rid of the annoying modern online gimmicks...there is no more laying down in a corner and taking pot shots at people...no camping...no "well my screen is red so I will just hid for a minute"...it makes every player much more aggressive...you die so much in the game, it doesn't matter...its just spawn and start shooting...always...I personally love that...and wouldn't take a UT game any other way...
don't get me wrong...i still love the modern shooter mechanics too, and they were/are welcome changes...just pointing out that there is still plenty of room for the back to basics gameplay of UT3...for a lot of us...and UT3 still has some issues that need addressed, particularly some more warfare maps that are not as big...as well as adding a not glitched open mic support option (although I haven't gotten a mic to work yet in that game)...
but because each halo game gets new weapons, it makes it like a new experience each time around?...ha...no...Halo 3 and UT3 are similar in that regard...H3 added some cool online features, but hardly broke new ground in the gameplay department...if all it takes to totally reinvent the gameplay is new weapons, there are already more weapon mods in the pipeline for UT3 than every released weapon in Halo combined...new weapons can be great...but if the guns are already great and balanced, why change that?...
the overall point of my argument is simply this...halo pioneered what a console fps could be...the "epiphany" worked perfectly...but where Halo failed was in keeping up with its own competition...when halo 2 launched with online abilities...nothing on a console touched it...Halo 3?...not even close...console shooters online and otherwise have increased exponentially since then, and Halo 3 failed to deliver...UT3 easily stands against all twich pc shooters as one of the best...and halo 3 doesn't even stand as one of the top 5 online shooters of this year...more often than not, people still stuck on halo 3 being the best shooter on the market, clearly have yet to play or know about what else is available...
Kleptic you need to understand that my comments are not meant to say UT3 is not a fun game. It is and i like it. You are right about twitch pc shooters and kill streaks with 40% health. I was very let down by the game and i know lots of other were. The only people who seem to be going crazy about it are ps3 owners who are two young to have played the others. These people frustrate me because they are acting like ut3 is a new bag and it is not. These guys will call halo 3 more of the same and them priase ut3. Ut3 offers no evolution other than GFX. The jump still sucks, so does the hammer, so the bioriffle and yet none of this has been fixed. Halo 3 fixed many of the problems that h2 multiplayer had. just my 2 cents though
fair enough...I guess there are a good bit of people new to the franchise now...
but also...UT3 did do one thing that has never been close to done...full mod support for a console community...that is what got me excited about it again...PC shooters just do not have the following they used to anymore...
so I guess as a PC gamer I can see why some would be a little underwhelmed, that is if they have become tired of the past UT games...
in either case...I was an avid UT and Halo player...my point was mostly that I am very happy with what UT3 is...and was pretty unimpressed with Halo 3...but that is simply because Halo is so similar to so many other games in pace as of late (CoD 4 and Resistance just to name a few)...UT 3 was so welcome to me because its something that not every other recent game is trying so desperately to copy...
Keep in mind the games you mentioned that are a lot like halo are the bitters not the other way around. Halo 3 was simply a perfection of the formula that halo 1 setup. I personally loved halo 3 but I have been a halo fan for years and have years of multi player practice so I am obviously biased.
wonder if they cud make Goldeneye and Perfect Dark levels to???
WOW! id get it if they did!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-P
Someone already did, I believe its called Perfect Temple
yeah and facility is on the way from the same person, at least he was gauging interest about it...would be a sweet remake, although it was done with the source engine already i believe...
see what Bungie is missing.
Remakes of Old Halo maps like Blood Gulch
Now UTIII is going to beat them to it
lawyers? you cannot patent the layout of a thing that i know of. and all this uses is the layout it doesn't use any of the textures or any thing that remotely looks like the textures...ect
LOL wow can't you ps3 leeches come up with anything original? God you guys make me sick!
"I wonder what they are gonna say after we get in game xmb, and then home,,, I cant wait to see how they react"
You cant wait to see how they react because you have nothing better to do.go play a game or somthing.... or better yet get your self something more memorable to look forward too.....like losing your virginity.enough of the fanboy talk,b.
eddierivera did you just give me a disagree because you think trolling is more fun than getting some...i find that strange.
Halo is considered to be the holy grail and the saving grace for a declining XBOX 360 console. Due to Bungie Studio's lack of desire and incohesiveness, Halo 3 is only able to manage a resolution of 640p. This is below the standard setting of all High Definition TV being that the default is 720p.
Fortunately, those who wish to experience the way Halo was intended to be can do so with Unreal Tournament III on the PLAYSTATION 3® Home Entertainment Console. With an open source network and collaborative efforts between Epic Games and Sony, gamers across the globe are now able to display their creative minds through development of the Unreal Engine 3.
Currently Epic Games are in the works with Microsoft for an XBOX 360 port of the same title. Dark Sniper expects this game to be cancelled due to lack of cooperation from Microsoft Corporation to actually give gamers a chance to enhance their playing experience. Microsoft is totally against an open source network and giving their owners additional map content at no charge.
Sniper COD 4 is in 640p. Great argument you should join the debate team.
I especially love
"PLAYSTATION 3® Home Entertainment Console"
Bwah ha ha ha love the R
Does sony pay well these days or did you just copy your post straight from their home page. People like you are a disgrace to gaming. Games are about fun not what system they are on.
Dark Sniper admits to being a moron once again. Dark Sniper completely forgot that COD4 runs at only 600p on the mighty PLAYSTATION 3® Home Entertainment Console, not to mention all the other multiplatform games that run much worse than on the XBOX 360, which is embarrassing. Sniper apologizes and admits his incompetence.
