Zero Punctuation: E3

54 second read

This week Yahtzee takes aim at E3 itself, but not at its minimal size or lack of importance but more at how non eventful all the games actually were.

However I just can’t help but point out that even in his attempt to insult every game that was unveiled at E3 he also managed to completely ignore Killzone 2.

I haven’t seen a games hype drop so dramatically and so quickly in my life before. This was meant to be the game that was going to redefine a genre and in it’s final E3 showing before it’s release it doesn’t even get a mention in any post E3 analysis.

Mind you having said that Resistance 2 didn’t get a mention by Yahtzee either but Killzone 2 is my new pet hate and I like Resistance 2.

    LOL you getting a bit obsessed.

    Killzone 2 wasn’t shown at Sony’s conference because there wasn’t any new footage. It did not have a big presence because Leipzig is soon and it is a game made by a European studio so it would be appropriate to show it off in Europe. Same thing with Heavy Rain. The game is also coming out NEXT YEAR. Also remember that E3 is not what it was and companies tend to spread out their portfolio between the 3 big events (E3, GC, TGS).

    I like to think of it as dedication 😉

  • I think ocelot is right. I think Killzone 2 is looking absolutely stunning, but people are maybe not paying much attention to it because its release is not imminent.

  • It’s definitely the timing. When i saw the one batch of vids my first thought was ‘hey look, it’s cod4 but prettier’
