About
An avid video gamer since the age of 6
I can't begin to explain just how many clicks
Came from my hand to my mouse
Or a controller in my house
From a Xbox or a Wii
A SNES or a PS3
I've got one of every platform
Cause I spend a lot of money
On the things I love the most
Like killing zombies or some ghosts
Or taking Bowser out back
To beat the shit out of his ass
I still go outside and have my fun
I make my money, and I get my shit done
But when I come home after a long day of work
I mesh into my couch and go virtually berserk
Mashing buttons, moving joysticks
And Shootin Hyrukens out on DPads
I love it all, its part of me
and I bet you can agree
That the best people in this Earth
Are the ones that pixelate from birth
We are the the ones that fight the good fight
Video Gamers, We Unite
(This is where some epic music comes in)

By Me


Some of the best times in my life consist of the days and nights that I play video games with my friends.

There is a very specific reason why this gun is not only my favorite weapon in the Killzone series, but one of the most important pieces of the game.  Killzone takes place far into the future.  So why is your starting sidearm a revolver?  Why wasn't a much more efficient and modern gun used instead?  I believe that there is a specific reason why a revolver was used in this game.

In almost every western, there are two main uses for a The single shot kill (usually in a duel, shootout, etc) and 'wild west' mode (shooting as fast as you can with nothing to lose).  In Killzone, it seems like these are the only two reasons you would ever need a sidearm.  As I began my third replay of Killzone 2, I realized that I barely ever used the Revolver during the last few times I played the game.  I was always looking for the weapon that outgunned the one I currently had equipped.  The only time I ever found myself using the revolver was purely and simply for fun.  I would get bored of shooting sniper rifles, or assault rifles, finding the gameplay to be reliant upon the weapons I chose to use.

This is when I realized the true potential of the M3/M4 Revolver.  When I used it, my feeling of the game immediately changed.  I felt like I had to make sure I had a clean bead on any Helghast enemy, or I just went ape Sh*! at point blank range.  The dynamic of the game became much more of a cat and mouse type, than the typical FPS feeling I normally had.  This inspired me to complete my third run through of the game almost exclusively using the Revolver (let's just say it takes a while once you get about half way through).  I began taking more time to line up a shot, and I felt a nostalgic sense of the Duck Hunt NES days while a Helghast ran across the screen and I successfully buried a bullet beneath his skull.

The Revolver is certainly not the most powerful weapon in the game, and it is definitely not the most effective weapon.  Yet, I do believe the Revolver is the best weapon in the game because it offers a completely different (wiki wiki wild wild west) feeling to experience when playing Killzone.  It also makes you a heck of a lot better at shooting in the game if you use the Revolver.  So Kudos to whoever decided to make a Revolver the choice sidearm starter in the game.  P.S.  I hope to all that is holy in the gaming world that Brian Cox lends his voice yet again.
