I thought it was only a time exclusive?
Commented on 2007-08-02 16:59:46
But it will be released for the 360 in 2008 right?

Why does only the ps3 logo exist?.The game was supposed to come to 360 aftes Christmas...

I have no idea how many times I have said this or anyone with straight fact.

Haze is exclusive to PS3 THIS YEAR, meaning 2007.
2008, expect 360/PC version!

Very interesting concept.

gamer: Dude, this AI sucks!

developer: No no... Our AI is sooo good that it just appears to suck.. You see, these troops are so high on nector that they view the world with blinders on, so to speak. Basically the bad guys are just really arrogant.

gamer: But I punched this dude in the face and he just stood there.

developer: Don't you see.. that's how good our AI is..

gamer: huh?

Looks like an interesting game. I wonder how they are going to bring the concept from the SP into the MP?

Got that right about showing a lot of game footage. UBI needs to slow down with showing so much because they spoil their games sometimes. Splinter Cell Double Agent was completely spoiled if you think about months before release because they basically showed you every level and what happened. Well they didn't say it, but people who were previewing it were revealing things that happened without even writing spoilers in the article.

Is this guy seriously trying to justify the game's shit AI.

Honestly, no one will give a damn for this game once HALO 3 is out.

Then, when we get tired of HALO, Haze will come, reloaded with more stuff for the 360 version, and all will be fine. :)
Commented on 2007-08-02 20:37:54
its a 360 game also!!!!!!
Commented on 2007-08-02 22:09:25
wow you guys need to fix this, HAZE is a 360 game it was confirmed already and even gamespot and ign have confirmd it, it was delayed till after christmas to get around being drowned out by the other bigger name FPS's that will be hitting the 360. Last i recall the rumor was february

@Sneaky_Castro and cchance:

Did you actually view the movie in this news? It clearly says in its ending: "...exclusively for PS3".

(but we happen to know it's a time exclusive, it's coming to the 360 on 2008)

To me it sounded like he was talking about multiplayer, i don't think you'll be playing rebel in singleplayer. so no, it had nothing to do with AI.

I just can't get over how bland this game looks.
Commented on 2007-08-03 02:50:44
The game looks like lots of fun to me , I'm excited!

I loved the Time Splitters series

I don't know, whenever I see this game in action it feels like a Pariah/Breed/Red Faction/Halo/Far Cry (Console) rip-off. It's like there is nothing new or original to it, just a mix of other games.

Well to be fair, thats what Halo is, just everything done well. I wonder if Haze is looking to do a similar thing?

I don't know whether it was just because its for this demo, or the combat is really like that, but there was a point where the main player came up behind two guys who were stood out in the open, and just stood rooted to the spot and shot an enemy in the distance. strange way to fight, in an light.

4 player co-op sounds good, but there are significant slowdowns in the build they're showing us currently. And any system link or online co-op announced?

I really wonder how well the multiplayer will work out, on the surface, it sounds like the mantel (mental, heh) guys will have a huge advantage with all the extra abilites of nectar. I mean, if a rebel guy "played dead" wouldn't you as a player realise that they might be doing that, and just continue to shoot them until you KNOW they're dead? Perhaps they'll explain it a little more in a future diary.

I also find it a little wierd they seem to be telling us so much about how the game plays out as well; Shane will break away from mantel sometime in the game?

If I hadn't already played Farcry and Halo so much I might care, but this game just looks very "meh" so far. The multiplayer looked the worst.
Commented on 2007-08-04 16:17:23
I try to get excited for this game.. but meh.. I dunno.. maybe when I play it I'll like it.
