Check out the CES Killzone 2 gameplay vids!!!!!

I suggest a pre-order at GameStop. You'll get a code to play the beta early.

I pre-ordered this with the demo code a few weeks back and I can't wait to try it out Friday.

I'm new to first person shooters so I will suck but I'm sure it will look badass when 12 year olds waste me.

Does anyone know if the demo will have multiplayer?

If you pre-order at gamestop you can access it on the 5th. That's what the card says anyway.

The whole purpose of a demo is so that people that aren't sure about the game can try it out. All they did was get people that were already going to buy the game anyway.

Also, I am no fan of Gamestop. The only way I shop there is if I have a giftcard to burn. I hate the fact that they open new games prior to selling them.

They get people who were going to buy the game to do it at Gamestop. I think it's stupid of Sony to make this deal. If they want Killzone to be a system seller they should be putting this demo out everywhere.

Well guys, consider this... You were at home and I was at work.

Benefits come at a price.

All I can say is: The game is as good as the 95+ metacritic score says it is.

Have you had a chance to play the multiplayer or just the story mode.

Does anyone know if the demo allows you to play multi?

The demo is a very short section of the single player.

As for first impressions, it feels like every other war-based shooter ever, but I quite like the momentum and weight of your movements and the guns.

Still looking forward to the full game.

Yeah, turning is quite different. In the COD games, it's like you're turning on a distinct, tight vertical axis. KZ2 you kind of subtly lean when you turn, and run. Like you really would. The gun kickback movement is very real, too.

The AI of the Helghast is really cool. I took cover and one put a grenade right on me. I withdrew and was flanked by one of them.

I have to use a proxy in order to get above 56k speeds on PSN.

Opening ports on my router didn't work. Putting the PS3 in the DMZ didn't work, not even hooking the modem directly to the PS3 worked.

Load up Privoxy and I'm downloading at full speed.

02-05-2009, 06:06 PM
privoxy?

ZootedGranny
02-05-2009, 06:40 PM
Well, first I have to clarify. My speeds were always shitty, no matter the time, no matter the day. However, slow download speeds during the weekly Thursday PSN update are pretty normal, because everyone is crashing the store.

But, on to Privoxy:

http://www.privoxy.org/

Install it on your PC and then load it, and in the Network settings of the PS3, when it comes to the Proxy option, choose Use and then input your PC's IP address, and 8118 as the port.

I only use Privoxy when I know I'm going to be downloading something from PSN.

The problem is that there is a moments delay before any movement and then it overshoots when you find your target. Doesn't matter what speed you put it on that delay is still there.

Sorry, had to do it, but, seriously, must just be something with the demo/server you're on.I was just on the playstation forums and there are a ton of players going apeshit over this lag on the right analog stick. It wouldn't have anything to do with it being from UK though. It is a problem in the coding if anything. One of the developers went onto the playstation thread and stated this was what they wanted to do. With all the complaining about it, I certainly hope they change their minds on that decision. That is the only thing I don't like about this game.

I bought it when Gamestop had some kind of Buy 2 Get 1 Free used game sale + 30% off w/ the Gamestop Card.

Anyways the guy was cool and only rang up one game, so I got 3 games for like $25.

I played through like 30% of it and then put it down for about 4 months. Picked it back up and got through about 85% complete, that was a couple weeks ago and I haven't played since.

Because LBP was supposed to release on a Tuesday and they were doing a whole big thing for it, then all of the sudden like 4 days before it was supposed to release, they found a song with some Lyrics about Allah in them and they had to take them out of the entire game. The release was delayed til the next Saturday.

Well, do you play the campaign? Or just the Multiplayer? or both?

THe graphics on this game are amazing, though, a bit more "dirty" and darker than COD. That's because it's on the Planet Helghan.

The shooting and moving are not as precise as COD, there s more body roll in the movement and more gun hop in the firing. Some people like this, others don't. I haven't heard anyone yet who's complaining about KZ2 though. THe MP games are alot more deep and customizable than COD games.

By the way, if you change the controller set up to "Alternate 2" and change the sensitivity of the X and Y axis 2 clicks below maximum each, it has more of a COD feel, still a little different, but the closest I've gotten to making it fell similar.

The single player is unimaginative and dull. You can tell the Helghast are of human descent because their entire world is essentially Earth 1.1. Warehouses full of explosive barrels, refineries with hundreds of stairwells and trainyards with millions of crates.

If you've played any war-based game from the past 10 years, you've played Killzone 2's campaign.

However, the multiplayer is quite good. It's not doing much new, but it takes from enough sources and implements the ideas well. It has an unlock progression similar to Call of Duty paired with the classes and game modes of Team Fortress. The tweaks come from being able to mix class perks to create hybrid roles, and a rolling multiplayer mode that changes gametypes mid-game.

I went to go pick up empire total War from my gamestop since the manager told me she would sell it to me at midnight there was less then 6 ppl there who showed up for Halo wars they sold out of killzone 2 the day it was released.I just can't see Halo Wars as being that big of a title. I know people will buy it just because it is Halo but will most likely be disappointed in it.

This damn level where you have to get the tank across the bridge is a damn pain in the ass. Doesn't matter how far you get the tank, if you die, you start over. I was practically over the bridge and damn machine turret shot me in the back. 25 minutes worth of work and 5 tries down the drain. I absolutely hate levels like this.

Oh, and aiming on this game is still a bitch.

I really don't think XBOX has any edge whatsoever over the PS3 other than the cheap price tag. If they were the same price, noone would think they weren't doing well. PS3 though, seems a lot better to me.

I think the physics accelerators will do to games what graphics accelerators (video cards) did in the late 90's. So with that in mind, I think the next gen of consoles will have physics cards in it and it will be a whole new ballgame...

As far as graphics go, I think we're seeing close to the limit of current gen capabilities, and in that respect the 360 has edged out the PS3 every time Gamespot did a comparison. The differences were very minute though.

The only advantage a PS holds is the BR, which I, personally, don't give 2 shits about since I use my 360 to play games. The only movies I watch on that thing are the ones I get on Netflix' instant queue.

And if you take all that away, I would still game on the 360 due to XBL and the controllers. Just my 2 cents. :)

Exactly the better machine doesnt allways mean the better gameing experience the Xbox was Loads better then the ps2 in the power department yet I dont think you will find any one who will argue that the ps2 wasn't the better system for gameing of the two.

Just my 2 cents. :)I am definitely not thrilled with Sony trying to go the "complete entertainment center" route, but it is very useful and puts it over the top for me. I do know that they have yet to produce a game for the PS3 that utilized the processor in full yet as well. I think Uncharted 2 is supposed to be the first game designed for the PS3 that will utilize its full potential so we will see on that front.

If there was one thing I would want changed on the PS3 it is to have the 360 controllers design setup. I still hate having the analog in the secondary position. Feels completely unnatural.

That said, if I had to choose one over the other I would choose the PS3 every time. Definitely glad I own both though.

Like Guru said...PS3 hasn't yet maxed itself out on it's capabilities. It's still a very new process to most all developers. As far as XBOX having the better graphics. Well, I'd hope they would, beings most games are made for them, then just ported over to the PS3. If a game comes out for both which is designed on the PS3, you'll see the exact opposite, but probably a little more magnified. It won't be enough of a difference to spat at, but probably more than the differences that exist between the two now.

You might not give a lick about the bluray player. You might not like watching movies in true 1080p high definition either. Especially if you don't have an 1080p t.v. That's you though. I kinda like all the detail. The only thing I'm missing is great sound and a great theater seating setup. Then...I'll be immersed in the American dream...

The problem is that most multi-platform games are designed with the 360 in mind. It's a consequence of PS3 being in third place and most of a games sales being on the 360. Thus developers aren't taking advantage of the Cell and instead using the system more or less the same as the 360, the Cell is doing the work of the 360 CPU and the RSX is doing the work of the 360 GPU. Since RSX isn't as capable as the 360 GPU, they have to tone down the game to get it to run. This is why multiplatform games tend to run better on the 360 and why PS3 ports often have no AA or run at sub-HD resolutions.

But the graphical capabilities of the two systems aren't very different to begin with. Any edge the Cell could potentially give the PS3 is going to stay confined to first party games. Not many developers are going to bother to invest so much in the version that's gonna sell less so they just do the port as best they can.

Blu-Ray is great if you care about it. If you just want to play games, it's a worthless feature that is responsible for the PS3's high price and third place status.

OTX's Nick Williams says that, according to his company's data, one third of those who plan to purchase God Of War III have yet to buy a PS3, implying a major bump for hardware sales when the game debuts.


But knowing sony's bullshit way of thinking they will release god of war 3 in every major country but the us on tuesday then release it here on a friday.

If they even think about releaseing GoW 3 like they did kZ 2 I swear to god I will have my vengence.

You are really confusing me here. FRIDAY...FRIDAY?!?! OH NOES! WTF! Makes no sense to me. Seems to me, you are thinking that you must be getting the game 3 days later than you could be getting it, when you could be saying...I'm getting it 4 days EARLY!

It's INCREDIBLY stupid. It makes me think you must be unemployed. Who else would make such a big deal about a game not being released on Tuesday when they would probably be at work and could not play it anyway. Whereas Friday...employed people have an entire night...and two days to play. How on earth can that be a bad thing? Do you only work weekends? What?

I'd think 5X as many people would RATHER a Friday release, and 5X as many people COULD show up for a midnight release if they so chose. Whereas most...have to work on Wednesday morning.

Is there any REAL reason your upset? Or is it just that there was no midnight release due to the economy?

Here's where I end up wrongfully bitching to Tiny about every little thing in this process so I apologize in advance. Man I hate when my buggy breaks.

I was just considering swapping out my HDD for something bigger too. I guess that will wait. I wonder how that works if you've upgraded your HDD and have to go through this?

UPDATE: Well, I can't find my f'ing receipt so I'm screwed like a stray dog in Chinatown and going out another $150 or so. My Xbox buddies are laughing their asses off because their shit just gets covered. Send it on in. This is absurd. If I could cost these pricks the world I would but they've already got my initial investment so what am I going to do? Get an XBox? Yep, I can feel the burn of the mandingo in my sphincter already. I could choke a kitten. Maybe I should just sell my games and use the proceeds plus whatever I would have spent getting the POS3 fixed and get an Xbrick and see what it's like to deal with their RROD. Sony sure hasn't won me over for brand loyalty.
