Killzone 2 Website Merges with the PlayStation Network



I linked mine just in case. Maybe this is gearing up for a Beta of Killzone? If you don’t have a account just create one and when you click on the activation link you’ll have the option to link with your PSN account. Just login to your PSN account and your done.

Hopefully the North American PlayStation Forums link with the PSN like Europe is doing soon. I remember on one of the Home videos, Phil Harrison showed us a quick personal Home web page. I would assume this would be linked to your PSN account. Maybe all the PSN linking is prep work for what’s coming in the next couple months? now connects up to your PSN account as of just now

Derrick sent this in a long time ago and I kept forgetting to post it. Sorry Derrick! Anyway, this looks to be a pretty accurate kart racing sim with some pretty good graphics:

This revolutionary title includes stunning next generation graphics surpassing those found in many AAA titles, and a driving model which is both easy to get to grips with and fun to play.

Let’s hope it has four player splitscreen!

Kane and Lynch sells 1 Million Copies… no really



Don’t you love it when a “Average” at best game can still sell 1 Million copies? It’s like “50 Cent:Bulletproof” all over again.Gamedaily has the news on the shocking report.

I completed the single player of Kane and Lynch and to me the game just felt very average. The aiming system is unstable and the hit detection is ways off. The “Fragile Alliance” multiplayer mode is fun when played correctly. I hate the little punks who just start killing everyone in the beginning of the game for no apparent reason.

Reminder: “Fragile Alliance” is supposed to be your teammates and you working together to kill the cops and steal money. When you see one of your fellow Mercs heading to the getaway van, then you can pop them and steal the loot… UGH!
