You are an older member here, and you are over exaggerrating the hype of PS3 games. Outside of the crazzy men, hype are pretty well executed.

LBP, MGS4, KZ2 (the beta owns every other shooter I've played), Heavenly Sword, and Resistance 2 all lived up the hype of being excellent games. And some even surpassed expectations. What in the world are you talking about?

 

Well the problem is with this, people are really bothered by the hype of this game, is because the first game in the franchise was pretty average and now people are wondering, how the game that average in the past could get so much hype. It's not what i think but what people think. I'm still excited for the game.

 

Not to mention that the first Killzone was heavily hyped back in the day as being a "Halo Killer" primarily because it had good graphics and was a PS2 exclusive ...

 

The final game fell far short of those good graphics, and the graphics weren't even that good in the bullshots.

The final game was plagued with rampant texture pop-in and constant framerate dips.  Both these things are obviously not a problem with the sequel, given the amount of play time the press has had with the game (and beta testers), with no complaints (nor any visible problems in gameplay videos - in fact, the visuals have only improved over the last few months).

It must be a first killzone tread, that i've had not seen any gif, from you. You should post some.

This thread is not worthy of such gifs.

:P

 



PS3 needs to be saved from what exactly? kicking 360's ass while being more EXPENSIVE and having NO GAMES and SUCKY ONLINE? and blah blah blah blah blah blah, booo-hoooo whine whine whine tear tear tear...please.

So you haven't played the beta? Makingmusic and various other people have played the beta and they say its amazing.

And that PS2 userbase arguement is bullshit. Selling over 2M isn't an easy task, no matter what console it was on.

 

I'm not saying anything about Killzone 2, but people played the beta for R2 too and hyped it as the most amazing thing ever. There was thread after thread touting R2 was going to kill everything and change gaming based on the beta.

Now that the game has released, it has come and gone and proved to be good but nothing spectacular.

I'm not implying that Killzone 2 will be bad in any way at all, I'm just going to wait until the game is released to start getting excited about it. If I can get my hands on a free demo I'll gladly play that and be happy, but not going to hype the game.

A voice of reason. I want to check this game out, but the hype is just sickening. I peek in threads, see the spin, get dizzy and leave. Unrealistic expectations and hype will just ruin the experience for some potential buyers.

 



It might still be a great game. Im sick of hearing of it on this site(along with other certain topics), but this is a game forum.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

If you really want to check this game out.
Then go to Gametrailers, watch some trailers, take note on the gameplay, watch screenshots, stare at .gifs.
Just make sure to skip on the comments section.
Basically, create your own opinion on the game without all the spin.
What other people say shouldn't affect your enjoyment of the game when you put it in your PS3.

Many Sony fanboys seem to be taking this thread as "LOL WOW, YOU ONLY MAD BECAUSE WE GET HYPED GOOD GAMES LAWLZ" and "LOL teh Wii sucks." Yep bashing one console that isn't your favourite is really making you seem like the better person >.> (that was sarcasm btw).

I think what he's trying to say the amount of threads which keep giving the message "this will make the PS3 win this generation" or "this will destroy all competition" is really getting annoying. And before anyone labels me as a "Sony hater" or "fanboy" of any sort, I'd like to see your proof. Pointing to my sig doesn't count as that is just my opinion and haven't bashed on anything. I actually don't bash on anything but when I say some intelligent criticism or even defend something I own, I get labeled a "fanboy." lol

I have reviewed tons of games, and played many more since the late 70s. I am not fooled one bit by awesome graphics. Let me see how the gameplay is. That makes or breaks a game for me.

You could have all the bells and whistles in a game - online, multiplayer, great graphics, eye candy and the like, but if the controls suck, if the game is short, if it doesn't live up to the hype, it phails.

No jealousy coming from me and from a vast majority of folks who aren't sold that this game will be the next champ on the PS3. Sorry, but we've been on this train before - just wait until ___________ comes out and turns PS3 sales around.

Happy Squirrel has the best sentence in this entire thread: Not to mention that the first Killzone was heavily hyped back in the day as being a "Halo Killer" primarily because it had good graphics and was a PS2 exclusive ...

Just update it - Killzone 2 is heavily hyped as being a "Halo Killer" primarily because it has good graphics and is a PS3 exclusive.

 



jealousy comes to mind...but honestly, if you're not interested in killzone 2/don't have a ps3 then why do these threads bother you so much? just ignore them? Pretty simple...I would not dare to go into a thread hyping madworld...simply because the game doesn't interest me. get over it.
