Killzone 3 changes the industry. Here's a look at a few high profile gun peripherals for the Sony Playstation Move. The official Sony Sharpshooter and the CTA Assault rifle. Play an FPS like never before.
There are a few excellent options if you want to use your PlayStation 3 Move controller and play an FPS like you have never played before. Killzone 3 has gun peripherals galore. We got to try one out recently at CES and FnJimmy really liked it. From what I observed, I like what I saw and would definitely give it a try. Sony has a quality product here with the Move FPS.
The peripheral we got hands-on with at CES was the official Sony PlayStation Move SharpShooter.

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 :)

Member iorilamia has been addicted to the killzone 3 open multiplayer beta. The class iorilamia has been using most of the time is The Engineer. He took time to write a book about the Engineer class. Weapons, skills, gameplay and matchups vs others.
Basically the Engineer is one of the more underpowered classes in K3, but one team having one and the other not makes a huge difference. If you don't want to read all the details (because most of you don't own PS3 or just don't want to read), I have the basic information written up at the end ^_^
M224-1A LMG- Your basic machinegun. Tons of amo, long range, medium fire-speeds but extremely innacurate in far distance.
STA11 SMG- Way more acurate than the first gun and much faster firing speeds, but smaller clip and sucks even worse at far range, a definate medium range weapon.
STA3 LMG- The lord of all spraying and praying. EXTREMELY CLOSE range weapon that has shitty acurracy, but spills bullets out with an INSANE rate of fire. Run into a room with it and take out a group of jimmy's without even trying.
STA18 Pistol - Run of the mile pistol that works at close range with a decent rate of fire. Should kill within 4-5 well placed shots.
VC8 Shotgun Pistol - Definately nowhere near as good as the shotty, far less range and damage, but it is still a one shot kill when your directly infront of someone.
STA2 Battle Pistol - Grenade Launcher aka "noob tube" for u CoD fans. Well its not nooby in this game, grenades bounch like a mofo but the weapon does shoot the nades extremely far and accurate ; very good vs campers.
Repair Tool – Repair damaged or destroyed ammunition dispensers, mounted guns, and automated turrets.
Repair Tool+ - Increases repair speed. (This is a MUST, the increased repair speed is insane and this is a fast-paced game, your gonna need it)
Repair Tool++ - Hack enemy placed turrets, transferring ownership until the engineer is killed or the turret is re-hacked. Stacks with previous abilities. (IMO this sucks ass. 9/10 your gonna die before you can just RUN UP to another engineers turret and hack it like your rambo, I haven't had much luck with this ability, but when I did, it allowed me to set up my own turret next to it.)
Sentry Turret – Deploy a machine gun turret that will automatically target and fire at enemies in range.
Sentry Turret + - Turret's firing rate is increase and can be deployed twice as fast as before.
Sentry Turret ++ - Deployed turrets can now track targets faster and are augmented with auto-fire rockets that fire every few seconds. ( LVL THIS SHIT UP AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! The Engineer felt like a struggle until the turret is fully lvled up, the turret dies too easily and its a sitting duck you the fire power is a must)
ENGINEERS ROLES IN THE TEAM / GAMEPLAY
The Engineer is your bro. Both teams have several amo crates that give you more grenades/mines than you spawn with and ofcourse more amo when you need it. You cannot use these unless a Engineer repeairs it (they are broken when the round starts) also if one team has a Engineer and the other doesn't, the one Engineer can destroy and take over the other teams amo deposits (or just capture them all in the start of the round). Before you go killing, Engineers need to repair the nearest Amo Depos.
Where and Why to use Turrets
The engineer ha several gameplay styles. To break it down we got the Camper, Aggresive and Security.
The Camper is self explanatory. Get your Turret in a corner while you wait in the other or next to it, firing at people coming near bye or outside. What makes it so effective is proximity mines. If you camp near a amo depo, you can have 3 mines constantly covering your blindspots and staircases, as soon as someone hits one you can constantly get more and more.
When your Aggresive (like me) you go out into the open, get your squishy turret (they do die easily) near a wall or crate giving you backup fire as you battle. It is effective because you can easily run back to heal him when injured. Also theirs MANY situations where I don't even notice a enemy but my Turret does, and I end up supporting him.
Security is great for your team. In almost any game-mode or objective while you go do your own thing, carefully place your Turret and proximity mines around the base/area.
Heres the fun part (not too much in-game) MATCHUPS! How us Engineer deal with other classes/ get railed.
Vs Engineer- Longe range, the engineer using the first primary weapon wins, its more inacurate than the second range weapon but the range usually wins overall, and the damage. Close range is a toughy. The last Primary weapon is best at close ranges, but the second one almost being as good and better acurracy, all comes down to the player. but even if its a small hallway, the second primary wins, the third is just TOO innacurate. Whoever have the better turret obviously have a much bigger hand.
Vs Infiltrator- This sucks. Infiltrators maxed out Hide ability allows them to appear as a teamate to you and yor turret. Ontop of that if they kill you with brutal melee, they stay hidden. Basically they seak up on you, brutal melee and your turret still doesnt see them, then they kill it. If they use a gun and are close enoguh, HOPEFULLY your turret turns around and fire a rocket first thing. The weapons matchup sucks aswell. Their primary eapon, an actual shotgun is way better than your pistol shotgun, and rapes you close range easily. They share the same secondary weapon as you but their last weapon makes the long range difference. A 5-burst red dot sight rifle, is way more superior than the engineers slow inacurate long range machine gun. Best thing you can do is be medium range while your turret is being a bro and helping you out, try to target them before they get close (it appears as red)
Vs Marksman - Marksman and Infiltrator are "top of the tier list" in a way. The marksman can be invisible while shooting at you, only appearing when killing or mortally wounding. So ofcourse when invisible, their turret can't see them, and if they do, the turrets slow ass moving rockets should be easy for a long range camper to dodge along with the turrets regular bullets. All of the marksmans weapons pwn you and the turret far/medium range. Your true only hope is close range or hopefully the machine gun pressure along with a turret causes their aim to fuck up. I'm pretty sure their final primary weapon kills turrets in one shot...a long with players.
Vs Tactition - Feels pretty equal. Tactition has a balanced weapon base with shotgun and rifles. The big upside tactition has is the ability to see players behind walls, BUT I don't beleive he can see Turrets. He will turn the corner ready to rape you, not knowing your buddy is ready to rape him.
Vs Tactitions Droid- It flies around and when it gets hurt sometimes flies away. This ofcourse makes it hard for your own turret to hit. But the droid ONLY shoots bullets, while your turret has bullets and rockets. One rocket should kill it, fire power is on your side. Also your machine gun takes down flying driods like cake.
Vs Medic- Medic is kinda lower on the list a long with Engineer. Your only real problem is the medic reviving and killing you from behind, but your turret may catch him before you even notice = win. The medic also has a shotgun, but without the abilities of infiltrator or tactition, it doens't always work out so well.
Vs Medics Droid- It follows the medic around shooting regular bullets like Taction droid, but its weak as balls. You or your turret can easily kill it. The only upside it has is staying alive and annoyinngly buzzing around when you kill medic.
The Engineer can play support with a strong Turret you can place in tactical areas and good weapons. The downside is fighting long range and cloaked classes. But if you want to camp with spamming mines and hiding in a corner with your turret in the other, that works too. The Engineer is also ideal for protecting assination Targets. On the forums this class has been protrayed as the "weakest" but the problem most people said is that the turret just needs a buff, its a sitting duck that dies easily(unlike the other 2 mobile droids), yet its the main part of playing engineer. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, I might do a write-up on Infiltrator and Markmans and how to be a cheap douchebag, but most of you probably don't care about Killzone3. Heres a video of Engineer class PWNING shit (well, the enimies are barely aiming...whatever) Uplaoded by http://www.youtube.com/user/pixelenemy

How much would you pay for this experience? Sony's asking an awful lot.
ON the show floor at the 2011 CES, Gouki's own FnJimmy plays Killzone 3 with the new Sharp Shooter Move gun in 3D. I put on the second pair of 3D glasses ($150 each MSRP) to see what this game could do. I've got a big head, and was wearing my glasses that day, so the active shutter glasses were not very comfortable to wear. I'd hate to have them on my head for more than 10 minutes. The 3D effect was decent, though it broke if you tilted your head. Overall, it didn't add too much to the game. I got the feeling that having it in 3D would help you aim with this accessory as you could line up your target through the reticule better. I didn't get to play the game, so I'll let Jimmy explain his feelings in the video:

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 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.

Filmed just one week removed from E3 2010 the Gouki.com staff looks back at the E3 2010 press conferences. Introducing BatRastered, with special guests FNJimmy and Choke. Also special appearances by Major Nelson, StarSlay3r, Geoff Keighley, and gaming legend Adam Sessler. This non-stop romp the E3 press conferences is a brutal realization that these major corporations barely know how to entertain. EA's press conference had the most potential entertainment wise just hoping that Joel Mchale might just say something crazy. Which almost happened, but he seemed reserved most of the time and had to read very specific lines at some point. Sony lost points because Jack Tretton straight up says he didn't want Kevin Butler hosting because of his own EGO. WTF? So bore us to death.
Then there's the games which is mostly what this is about. Don't be a Jimmy! Enjoy Vlog #14 E3 2010 press conference review.
Leave some comments Jimmy and like this story!! Thanks.

"Battle Fuel" which is really just Orange soda slushy, is now at 7-11 and has some bonuses...
Slurpee is doing a Killzone3 promotion. The "special" Halghan flavor is Orange...cool. Anyways, theirs 1-5 sizes each worth that many points. (A small is worth 1 point, a promotion cup is worth 5). These cups also have codes that you use on Slurpee.com and get your points towards these cool Killzone 3 related things! check the sources below for more info. 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
LBP2 Mini Pack for 8 points
Slurpee replica within psHome for 2 points
Lock and Load map pack 4 points
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.
