Killzone 2...
« on: 10:56 AM - 01/25/09 »
....is coming.  I'm not going to start a system war, but I have to say that this is one that made two of my friends go get PS3's.  Metacritic, so far, shows it to be the best reviewed PS3 game yet.

My favorite video:

Anywho, for all who are XIMers, this is one for the books.  Can't wait to see everyone's configs!

Yeah... Reviewed by the official PlayStation magazine!

I don't know if I'm going to buy Killzone 2 or Halo Wars yet.

Looking forward to the first configs on it.  Anyone getting the demo early?

Killzone 2 for $51.99 shipped on Amazon preorders.

Code for discount is KZ2SAVE5

I just ordered mine, figured I'd buy it no matter what, I might as well save 13 or so dollars over buying it local.

Getting it on the 5th like a lot through the Gamestop code.

Day one purchase here, I haven't played anyone on my PS3 for awhile. Looks like KZ2 is the complete package for a FPS.

One of the few games that has made me consider buying a PS3, though I barely play the 360 as it is and still have yet to convince myself to again subscribe to LIVE. I almost never used it last year, except to play in a manner that could be supported by a virtual LAN.

Shockingly good.  Thanks for the pre-order heads up, Juncti!  Think I"ll be doing that myself!

Love the MP footage..

The mention of slow controls at 3:57 worries me. Not quite sure on how to accurately interpret what they meant by "very slightly slower" in regards to other shooters.

Long videos, didn't get to watch it all.

Love the destructible environments. Looks like everything crumbles and breaks. Also cool how the game mode switches up mid battle. Should make things interesting.

My big concern is they keep talking about the use of the sixaxis controls.  How will we be able to lean out, per se, from cover without them?  Or turn knobs / rotate controls?

ALSO - Totally off topic, I can't find how to link CTRL to my squat / stand button for resistance 2.  Is CTRL not available?

Left Control and Right Control

Look under L and R

Usually you can disable six axis in the options menu. Not all controllers have six axis so usually they let you turn it off. Let's hope.

I hope we can disable...if not, I'll be swapping mid-game during the single player just to twist knobs.  Thx on the L/R Ctrl button thing.  I swear I looked 300 times under C just to make sure I didn't miss it.
