As per usual, I was drifitng through the blog section and came across:
Grinds My Gears: Call of Duty and Other Over-Hyped Games
Right then, most of it to me, seems a little superficial. I don't really care about CoD5, it's commited itself to suicide, pre-release by some ridiculous dev on dev bashing.
Back to the point, the blog says soemthign that made me feel enthusiastic enoguh to write a blog entry myself. Not that it is uncommon for me to do so.
"And I have a feeling that Killzone 2 might become the next Haze/Lair."
Now, I am a self professed PS3 fanboy. Check my blog entries if you don't believe me. But KillZone 2, to me does nothing.
Let's skip all of the cycnical bashign and get down to the nitty gritty of this monochrome shooter, I can't udnerstand why the rumoured 60 million dollars has been poured into this when:
-Resistance 2 looks and sounds better and isn't being a resource hog
-It's doing NOTHING new or innovative
-It's never going to beat Halo 3 critically due to bias
-And 8 Days could have used some of the monies
Don't get riled up just yet. I popped Resistance and 8 Days in there, mainly becuase I was running out of points. Why was i running out of points though? Becuase all I needed to say had been fulfilled by the second point.
Yes, 60 million dollars into a game that does nothing new. You could argue 100 million dollars went into GTAIV that did less than Killzone 2, but that was a definite seller, and Rockstar clearly haven't got consoles to support (and GTAIV didn't shift hardware).
All I can say is that to me, the shooter is the prettiest thing ever. But can't i obtain the same experience with CoD4? Or are we still relatively in the dark about Killzone 2?
