Sony have released a new batch of Starhawk screens in honor of PAX this weekend, which Starhawk will be present at and give gamers a chance to play in some 5v5 CTF matches.
Damn SH looks phenomenal! Sony has some of the sexiest exclusives in the biz.
Welps, between Starhawk and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, I should be a pretty happy PS3 gamer in 2012. Can't wait to get into a starhawk and dogfight in space. Bungie deprived me of space dogfighting MP in Halo: Reach, but come next year, that need will be sated. LOL @ Disagree(s): You're totally right. I have no right to pretend I have a PS3, when clearly, I dont. I'm sorry D:
I'm gonna be crazily happy gamer in 2012. Many great looking exclusives like Starhawk, Sly Cooper, Twisted Metal, The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, The Secret World; great multiplats like BioShock Infinite, Hitman: Absolution, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, Mass Effect 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines, The Darkness II, Metal Gear Solid Rising etc.
This game looks beast! Hopefully the learning curve isn't as brutal as Warhawk's. A newcomer to Warhawk four years after it launches is like throwing a person who can't swim into a pool of sharks. Your odds of winning/having fun are VERY slim when you keep getting owned over and over again. The biggest problem with Warhawk was air to troop kills, but I remember that Jobe said he would address this issue.
"The biggest problem with Warhawk was air to troop kills, but I remember that Jobe said he would address this issue." Yeah, I believe they resolved this issue by removing the hovering from the hawks.
Yep, ur right. Now I remember. That alone will make me pre-order this game.
I believe they also simplified the controls and removed the "pro" flight controls that had sixaxis support. Someone who mastered that kind of flight just dominated...
^^It's like how they simplified the controls for Fight Night Champion. In a game that involves strategy, you should be able to carry out your strategy without worrying about cumbersome controls. Having difficult controls doesn't make a game challenging, it makes it FRUSTRATING.
Well said. I'm also glad they ditched the auto lock on for the foot battles, for a more Gears/UC over the shoulder approach.
Those explosions look pretty awesome.
just as long as they dont dumb the game down. I understand they need to make the game "friendly" to newcomers, but removing features that were already in warhwak simply because it simplifies it for everyone is crap imo. I loved warhawk for its difficult learning curve because not everyone can master it. I loved pro flight because when you master it, you feel good about yourself. you cant just take away pro flight because people raped when using it. it just doesnt make sense
Pro-flight is still available in Starhawk. They just took away the six-axis flight mode.
well yea i know i was just giving an example
Ahh ok, the only thing i'm not liking at the moment is the knives being attached to stupid R3 buttons. Grrr, that was my most used weapon in Warhawk.
