I'm hoping this is gonna be the game that me and my workmates can all play and enjoy. I thought it would be BF3, but with the piss poor mics that break up constantly it wasnt to be, COD is a no-no. So it's either this or twisted metal. Wish the community was still there for KZ3 tbh, cos that game was great online.

This game is looking good, a lot better than Warhawk which was decent. I imagine will be putting a lot of hours into this game.

Looks and seems to play leaps better than Warhawk.

The animations, aiming, shooting it looks like a proper modern way designed 3rd person shooter now, Warhawk was just weird and clunky.

Not only that, but its sci fi! Space battles, transforming mechs, nice art, just great overal.

My sister played Warhawk since launch for hours week in and week out for many years, so I better be in the Private Beta :(

The community is still there for KZ3, its just that this year Sony as well as Sony's fans have gotten hit hard by the coward punk hackers causing havok on PSN (as well as other places) and you also have a bunch of other games that keep coming out and the ridiculous hype that accompanies them and worst of all the CoD conditioned crowd that bitches and moans that all other fpss don't play like CoD.
It also does not help that there was this massive hatred hype aimed at Killzone 3 before the game was ever released early this year, it seems that the mentality keeps being *play the game that "we" say* like crap like Brink aka 60 dollar ripoff.

Lol, no, The commuinty for KZ3 is dead, has been for a while. You barely ever get full games. Often you end up with a one on one game in warzone which is fucking rediculous. It's a shame tho cos i'd rather be playing that then any other FPS currently on the market atm.

But thats kind of what I mean, it is still there but since everybody is so caught up in all of the events and the NEW NEW NEW plus all the hate hate hate Killzone got earlier this year, those people have or are playing other games, its a shame yes.

Oh there is hope though... http://www.gamespot.com/news/guerrilla-cordoning-o...

KZ3 was broke by game design decisions if not quality. Selling what once was regarded as a game-breaking hack (ability to look like the other team) as a perk was never going to be good for the game.
That coupled with too few maps and game modes it was never going to have legs.

Warhawk i never played, i was put off by how dated it looked... this is the same.

Why's MW3 a no-no?

Cos i think it's shit.

K3 was COMPETATIVE perfection imo. Get 2 teams using all classes and it was so balanced, so frantic, so fun. I hadnt enjoyed a MP that much since cod4 (back when it wasnt a killstreak clusterfuck of mediocrity) and i havnt enjoyed a team based shooter as much since enemy territory. I loved KZ3. Single player story was forgetable, but the MP was great. Just wish people stuck with it longer. The maps where awesome too, even the dlc ones (first time i ever bought them for a game) I was hoping BF3 would be a suitible replacement, but with its issues it hasnt been so far. So my hopes currenty ride on starhawk or twisted metal, something that isnt the same old shit, something that has decent identity, and something that should be fun. Whether it will be? Who knows.

KZ3 was broken interms of the class abilities was so screwed on some of them. Marksman, Tactician and Infiltrator...broken and unbalanced classes.
Or else it was damn good, other than its very weighty and IMO annoying movement.

MW3, stay away, its like MW2 but light, and take that light with a grain of salt because its bad!
Definitely my last COD ever unless they go an overhaul like they did from WW2 to COD4.
I would pick KZ3 over MW3 ANY DAY.

With Starhawk, I am in the beta, I am not a fan of the shooting mechanic of it so far, and my PS3 freezes alot during gameplay which is annoying. But yeah, I hope you guys get into to give it a ago.

What's up?
  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (4 Days ago)

  • b0vril

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (5 Days ago)
