Killzone 2 Update

   0
So I fired up Killzone 2 the other day and downloaded the latest update. I know people have probably already been talking about it -- about the way the games list screen has changed. You can now see the maps a game is playing along with other useful information. It's a much needed and welcomed improvement.

However there is still one thing missing! Duration.

Now I know that a 30 min game of body count might not take the whole 30 min, but most of the time, I don't have time to play a game that's 30 min body count, 15 search and destroy, 20 search and retrieve, 15 capture and hold, etc. etc.

I don't know how many times I've joined a game that looks promising. They're playing maps I like (multiple maps), not just Radec Academy, but each game mode has an obscenely long time limit. I want to be able to see how long each mission's duration is before I join the game and look like a dick for joining and then leaving right away.

Who knows, maybe there actually is a way to see the times or there's an easier to way to join and quit without the hassle. But I hope this feature is something that gets added in the next round of patches.

PS - On a happier note, I really like the Southern Hills map. Beach Head is pretty good too, but I haven't gotten to see much of it. When I found a game playing it, most of the fighting was taking place near the ISA base in the craters and pipes. But my reaction has been less positive than Southern Hills.

PSS - I need some friends for my friends list. Only 1 of my friends has a ps3 and he plays only sports games. So if there're any Dtoiders out there who want to play, hit me up. Triplzer0

Hey Dtoid, I'm TriplZer0.



I'm a science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction writer by trade, but aside from writing, video games are my biggest passion. I also write over at Gamer Limit.

The first console my brothers and I ever got was an SNES for Christmas one year. Since then, we've owned an N64, Playstation, PS2, and an Xbox 360. I got a Gameboy Color one year for Christmas, but my brothers are more into handheld gaming than me. Every time they upgrade to the latest system I get their hand-me-downs. That's how I obtained my GBA and my two DS's. Handheld gaming for some reason doesn't interest me even though I know there are great games out there. The first console I've ever been the exclusive owner of is my PS3. The first games I ever played were Super Mario World, F-Zero, 7th Saga (which I've written about), and Out of This World.

My favorite genres are RPGs (Western or Japanese), FPS, action/adventure, and RTS (even though I suck at them).
