Can’t wait for Killzone 2?

leave a comment »

This is it. Killzone 2 is fast approaching.  I can still remember at E3 several years back, when we first had a glimpse of this game by Guerilla.  I didn’t have a PS3 yet back then, so in my desire to play the game, I went ahead to get a copy of Killzone for the PS2.  Whilst the original KZ had plenty of issues (which I mentioned in a previous post), based on the demo of KZ2, the game was vastly improved, taking full advantage of the power, that is the beast inside the PS3.  I was left wanting for more.

Just a few days before the release of KZ2, I wonder if I could get my hands on this highly anticipated game on Day 1 (anyone care to loan me some money? :p).  I probably won’t even be able to see a copy yet in the local game stores, so I guess I’ll only be able to play it by mid-March.  So to help ease the wait, I found this webgame that allows you to blow Helghasts off your browser (literally). It only takes a quick registration and an install, then you’re ready to battle with red-glowing eyes.

And for more Helghast action, in a comical way:

MGS4 goes Platinum

leave a comment »

It’s nearly 11 weeks since I got my PS3, and I still haven’t been able to complete my games-to-get (and beat) checklist.  Unbelievably, I still haven’t picked up Metal Gear Solid 4, and Grand Theft Auto IV, easily games that most gamers will have in their top-5 games for the next-gen consoles *cough, the  Wii does NOT count, cough*.   In the midst of the economic crisis, it’s a tad more difficult to adjust the budget to fit one’s gaming needs.

On that note, MGS4, a PS3 exclusive, according to Joystiq has hit the prestigious Platinum Range in Europe.  What does this mean for fans, or for those planning to pick up the game?  With the game attaining the Platinum status, it will now be included in the discounted PS3 games.  Prices will now drop down to 19.99GBP , or roughly 1340.82PHP. The game will also be bundled with Metal Gear Online. Not a bad deal!  Now if only the game reaches the Greatest Hits status, which would mean a further discount, I’m sold!

P.S

Status of the  DISC (PSN games not included) games that I got so far :

  • Resistance 2 – Beaten
  • Little Big Planet – Played occasionally
  • Motorstorm: Pacific Rift – almost beaten (Still a mid-grid finisher online. I suck)
  • Far Cry 2 – Played RARELY (regretting to have bought it in the first place)
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – Beaten

[Preview] GoW3 HighDef Screenshots

leave a comment »

Killzone 2 may just be around the corner, but another of the PS3’s most anticipated games is causing thumb-itchiness syndrome from gamers.  Santa Monica’s third installment for the God of War (GoW) series has released some hi-def screenshots for this highly anticipated game.  The game picks off from the end of GoW2 where Kratos, on along with some vengeful titans are climbing Mount Olympus hunting down Zeus.  Here are the pics. Enjoy!
