The submission that won Guerrilla Games Killzone 3 "Create Your Own Trailer" contest.
Over at killzone.com they had a contest to create your own trailer for a chance to win Helghast Edition. GAS0L1NEMAN's video " GET IN THE MOVE" was the well deserved winner. It would be the best Killzone3 advertisement by far! (If it was edited a little and put on tv). Check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Pretty damn creative, really liked how he timed the events in game with real life. Does the start of that video feel a little familiar to any of you? Only downside is his camera is a bit weird, but did a good enough job anyways.

Missed the sniper Figurine in the Helghast Edition? Heres your chance for an even better one, and whole new exclusive bonus!
New Bundle Pack announced today that has to be one of the most interesting and original ones. The Helghast Edition featured a bunch of cool stuff, 2 of them were a soundtrack of the games music and a Sniper Action figure that was partially cloaked. This was a one time thing, but they one-upped that. In the new bundle you get
- Fully Cloaked Sniper Figurine
- Copy of the Game
- MC Stahl's hip-hop album, throwing down the real talk of what it's like on Helgan
Check out the tracks for his album "Disease of Compliance and Subjugation"
“Working with MC Stahl has been a lifelong dream for me" said Guerrilla Merchandise Director Bob Elgas.
And for the second part of the bundle, a better version of the first sniper figurine. This one definately depicts the sniper class a lot better than the original figure.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to http://killzone.com and pre-order yours today!
What do you guys think of the new Pack? This is the third deal they have done, everytime it's something new. They are really pushing promotions for this game. Leave your comments below.
Class Progression Videos for Infiltrator and Field Medic
Strange enough, even those these videos are on the US K3 site, when trying to play them it says " Not Available for US Locale" but I always use the youtube versions anyways. This time they bring us 2 videos explaining the roles, strengths and weapons of the Infiltrator and Field Medic. Even for someone who knows the game, these are still nice to watch and hopefully might persuade some more of you to purchase it ;)

If you aren't familiar with K3 , what do you think about these videos? And if you are fmiliar with it, what weapon combinations do you use for these classes/ your playstyle? Don't be a jimmy, comment below.

Killzone and acidplanet.com are coming together for a different type of contest. First off, if you don't know, AcidPlanet is a music site, promoting artists, sharing and downloading music.Read full story...
7-11 made a boo-boo, but is it a good one?
In my previous story, 7-11 had a special killzone 3 slurpee. Buying this gets you points to spend on DLC. If you didn't pre-order the game or get a special edition, buying slurpees is cheaper than how much the DLC costs on PSN. But 7-11 made a mistake.
4 slurpee points gets you three unlock points.
"Get the early edge in KZ3™ with 3 Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice. Just don’t pick the spork, that would be a real waste." - From slurpee site.
Numerous complaints on the site state that you get 24 hour double EXP instead. Wait what? Thats fucking AWESOME! Basically buying a medium sized slurpee and grinding killzone on the weekend will get you way more than 3 unlock points. Unless you are lazy/suck, then the 3 unlock points would be better for you. Don't know if they will change it back to unlock points, or just correct the info, but take advantage of this while you can...if anyone on gouki.com plays Killzone,lol
The other errors going on are confirmation. Some people get emails right away, some get them days later, some get an email saying " your item will be recieved in 2 weeks" and get it 2 days later (for those who wanted psHOME clothes). People who wanted a Slurpee Machine in their psHome are having major code delays in general. Majority of people have had to send in emails with their info to Slurpee to get correct confirmation. The slurpee system is working, but it is really sketchy, hope this heads up helped you guys who are interested.
Every class can help out, here are some basics.
If you are new to K3 or are on the ropes about buying the game, here's a little write-up about how every class in some way can contribute to the team in multiplayer modes. Hope this gives you a better understanding of the game :)

New gameplay footage from upcoming DLC!
In my earlier story http://gouki.com/Story/Details/new-killzone3-dlc-announced-steel-rain-map-pack ,(click link for level details) Killzone 3 will have a new map pack called Steel Rain. It features 2 maps, Stahl Arms and The Junkyard. After releasing a video for Junkyard last week they now give us a video for Stahl Arms! Check out the video below and leave a comment on what you think! I'm loving these 2 levels, and for $5 im definately getting the map pack.

I give my review on Killzone 3 and what Playstation 3 owners should expect.
Killzone 3 is a futuristic FPS that is exclusive to the PS3. After completing Single Player and being hooked on multi-player I hope you find my review useful upon purchasing the game.
Brief Story Overview - In killzone 2 the ISA went into Helghan, pwned shit up and Rico went into Rage-Mode and killed the Helgan leader Visari. This game picks up right after that, You (Sev) and your bro Rico are fucked. Your small army is stuck on Helghan trying to find a way home, you must kick some serious ass to defeat the massive army of Helghast.
I really don't want to spoil it for you guys so sorry if this lacks info, it will mainly be a critique. Let's start with the characters. I really felt no attatchment to them. All the good guys and bad guys personalities are written on paper in a way. First few times you see them you can pretty much get a feel of how basic they are. Bad guys who want justice and to crush the enemy at all costs, good guys who feel like dudes in a bad action movie, just trying to get home. And the way the story progresses just feels like a typical action-adventure movie. I actually am more attached to the Bulletstorm characters, and that game isn't even serious. But the good parts of the story are definately a plus. You switch around from time to time being on foot, in mechs, jetpacks etc the list goes on. The different missions consisting of these all feel extremely fun and "realistic". You can feel the weight of trying to run in a mech while bullets ricochet off your screen while your buddies next to you in a jeep explode and the ground soldiers frantically try to find cover and snipe. also it is no walk in the park, The Helgast usually outnumber you and like to spam nades and rocket launchers while being at MUCH better tactical areas, this gives the game a more challenging feel opposed to walking around mowing dudes down.
Sound isn't something I would normally review, but it is that awesome in K3. The actiony-battle music is pretty intense and goes well with many fights, but the surrounding effects are the star. The way explosions sound when they are near you actually make you feel screwed. When your friend gets shotgunned in a nearby hallway you can hear the echo. The game is so action packed and fast pace things are constantly firing and exploding, the sound they delivered really gives it a rough war feeling. Ontop of all of that whent he action is settled down, you can even hear enemies trying to sneak up on you as they run up metal staircases. A very special part of the audio that I enjoyed in single player was the voices of the Helgast. Sometimes I just like to bumrush the building spray a room. Fuck that, at times you can actually hear the Helghast before you reach the room saying " Was that movement? GO CHECK OUTSIDE!", it is amaaaaaazing. Unfortunately a part I really loved was toned down. In beta when you brutal melee somone in multiplayer they let out a RIDICULOUS death cry, the first day patch tuned it down a bit due to complaints, ha.
Definately uses the potential and beauty of a PS3, not much I can say here. The game does have a constant dark and brooding war feeling, but the visuals still shine and look stunning. Also there is great detail is buildings , uniforms/helmets and guns, you even have nice looking footsteps in the snow ;D. Dirty water and decimated cities have never looked so good.
Simply addicting. K3 multiplayer has 5 classes all with their own special abilities and weapon sets (3 primary and 3 secondary weapons). The game has a leveling system like most FPS and you take the points you earn to spend on your class. Leveling up the abilities and weapons on your favorite class is one thing, but the gameplay of it is win. All classes feel well balanced (a patch was done ) and they suprisingly work on every level. Even small cramped levels have a place for snipers, and large open levels have a place for Infiltrators. It isn't neccesary but using a mic in this game and cooperating with teamates doubles the fun of the experiance. A long with all of that you are rewarded "Ribbons" for your perfromance. Ribbons give you temporary bonuses during the match such as faster reload or increased bulletdamage (the list goes on) for getting certain types of killstreaks or completing objectives. Also multiplayer delivers 3 game modes, all awesome in their own way.-
Guerilla Warfare features "body count" which is your basic team death match, whoever has more kills at the end of the timer wins, it is max 16 players 8v8.
Operations is more on the tacticle side. It has the objectives of Capturing and Holding bases, Assasination, Propaganda Carrier (like capture the bag) and planting/disarming charges. What makes this game-type so hype is that after each failed/achieved objective there is a cutscene involving the people on the teams! So after faling to disarm the bomb you might see you and one of your teamates getting blown off a walkway while your leader tells you how sorry you are, this is a max of 24 players.
Warzone is the longest gametype and my favorite. It combines Operations (without cutscenes) and Guerilla Warfare in a randomized order. First team to complete 6-7 objectives wins the match. It is definately insane. Max 24 player.
For those of you who don't like to read-
- Story is a bit bland and expected. The upside is that it's full of action and even with co-op can be difficult.
- Sound is great. You get a good feel of war and the intense battle going on, also you can overhear enemies speaking in single player.
- Graphics wise the game is detailed and beautiful, starring at the vast destroyed Capital is beautiful in its own specialw ay.
- Multiplayer is where it's at. A leveling system with awesome classes, sweet game modes and levels that accomodate everyone make it a great experience.
In the end all I have to say is BUY IT! This PS3 exlusive is definately a must, it is a HUGE step-up from Killzone 2 (that many people hated) and is a wonderful FPS that will keep you busy.
Side note: If you are interested in DLC, it seems that they are going to stay with 2 maps for $5 pricetag.

Rain + jetpacks + mechs = YES YES YES! Atlus has no plans for U.S release for Catherine = NO NO...no
Steel Rain DLC map pack features 2 levels inspired by the single player Campaign. The levels are MP-09 Junkyard and MP-10 Stahl Arms. This week we only get a tase of the Junkyard which includes Mechs and jetpacks...MECHS AND JETPACKS! Next week they will release the Stahl Arms video which includes miniguns! No pricing or release date yet on this DLC, but the day 1 DLC Retro Map Pack was 2 levels for $5, so this might be the same.
Source : http://www.killzone.com/kz3/en_US/blog/features/2011-02-24_steel-rain_01.html (with picture gallery and vid)
Video uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/profiteerv Or check source link for better quality.
MAP DETAILS :
The Junkyard will be 16 player Guerilla Warfare Gametype.
"The junkyards of Helghan are a wasteland to some, but a valuable resource to others. In the main junk processing facility of Helghan, ISA and Helghast Forces are clashing in an attempt to salvage vehicles and supplies for their war effort. Jetpacks are the key to taking the high ground, but the huge Exoskeletons can quickly turn the tide of the battle on the ground"
Stahl Arms will be Warzone 24 players Gametype
"As the Helghast write a new and appalling chapter on humanoid experimentation, beleaguered ISA Forces mount a desperate attack on the notorious Stahl Arms research facility, where they hope to free ISA soldiers who have been taken captive. Stahl’s Helghast forces will stop at nothing to ensure that the ISA attack fails, even if it means exterminating the very prisoners they need for their weapons research"
In Sad-face News, Atlus U.S said Catherine is a Japan-Only game and no thoughts of U.S release at this time.
What do you think jimmy's? Will Catherine pull through or would it not sell as well in our market? Japan-Only games sometimes do make it to the U.S but that takes years! Also I don't know if I like the mechs or the jetpacks more! Killzone DLC is looking VERY promising, leave your comments below

I'm actually going to go out and get a slurpee for this "Lock and Load" map pack that will be released later in the month.
Heres some of the stuff available-
For 2 points each, ISA and Helgan Uniforms for PS Home
