Yes, I know we have enough KZ2 threads already. I just wanted to create this one for the final build/full release of the game.

In case you're wondering why I decided to create it early, well, here's why.

If you go to Amazon.com right now, you can pre-order the game and save $5 with the promo code "KZ2SAVE5"... in case you already knew that, Amazon is now offering "release date delivery", which means that you'll get the game on Friday the 27th.

Total: $60.97 with shipping!

Enjoy!

Hmmmm wonder if I can cancel my pre-order with GS. I'll have to look into that and see if I can.

Yep, that's where I've got mine on order. $52 delivered on my birthday, the 27th. And, HOME skins, to boot.

Don't worry, I'm sure there'll be at least another dozen by the the time the dust settles on Killzone 2. I'm betting someone will even come out with the "official" Killzone 2 thread by the end of the month. It's gonna be a killer game, so why not have a bunch of places to talk about it?

As for the Amazon deal, $60.97 works out to be a lot of money when I factor in the Canadian conversion. I know you're adding in shipping, but is the game going to cost more than usual on actual store shelves? I know Fallout 3 was about 5 bucks more (for the 360) than regular priced games. (At my local Best Buy it was, anyway.) I'm hoping Killzone 2 doesn't follow suit here in Canada. Well, not that 5 bucks is gonna break me. It might make my wife feel like breaking me, though.

Can't wait for this game since Resistance left a bad taste. Controls will take a lil time to get used to since I've been playing FPSs mostly on my Xbox. Overall, this game looks very promising. Eager to see what the MP has to offer.

Since there is no cover system in multiplayer, I'm going to be playing the single player with Alt 2 controls, just so I get used to a single scheme instead of switching. I haven't really had a problem holding both L2 and L1 at the same time, anyway. One thing that really annoyed me about Bad Company was how the helicopter controlled completely differently in online vs. the single player campaign.

Nope, it is what it is. There is no cover system. That means, when you press L2 (or whatever you have you controls set as) near a wall or barricade, you won't go into a "sticky cover".

"It didn't work too well in the 360 degree combat environment that is multiplayer"

"In single player the path is more linear and the action is usually ahead of the player. In MP levels are more arena based and you are more susceptible to flanking and being attacked from various angles."

"We found that the L&P system didn't add anything in that scenario and that players often actually took a step back from cover objects to give themselves a little more freedom to move, so they were actually working against the system, so we ripped it back out"

Downie concluded with:
"Crouching was deemed sufficient."

That's actually good news. The current MP fragfest titles with cover systems are pointless. No one uses it, and if you do, you're getting your ass fragged. Thanks for the clarification, folks.

Thanks for the tip! Got it for $54.99 (including release date delivery) with my Prime membership - sweet!!!

But the store is all the way over there...and I'm right here...

Also, this would be cheaper than getting it at the store and, if you're as stingy as me, every dollar counts.

When I passed by my local GameStop today, I had to stop and do a double-take after spotting this display:

For a second I thought Sony must REALLY be in trouble if they've resorted to releasing first-party titles on the XBox 360

Anyway, I'm not a big fan of FPS, but the KZ2 demo was so much fun that I can't wait for the full game. The 27th can't get here soon enough.
