Another Killzone... yay?[Rant]

If anyone has known me for an extended period of time, they'll learn that there are two things I truly hate.  Apple and Playstation fanboys.  The latter will be my target audience of this post.

First we had Killzone 1, a mediocre FPS with mediocre graphics and piss poor gameplay.  I rented it for my PS2 a week or two after it came out and I returned it the second day I had it;  it was just THAT bad.  Needless to say, I absolutely hated it.

Fast forward a couple years.  I'm just chillin', watching TV and I notice an ad spot for Killzone 2.  I'm immediately skeptical about the quality of the game, but I thought I might at least try it.  Again, I rent it, I play it, but this time my reaction was different.  Killzone 2 was actually pretty decent.  Huge graphics improvement, game play improved immensely and the online was great.  All in all, I'd give it an 8/10.  Then I hear these Sony fanboys talking about the perfection that is Killzone 2.  I tried to reason with them, I tried telling them that it was a good game and that's all.  They wouldn't hear any of it and immediately disregarded me as a Microsoft fanboy.  This stoked the fires inside me, telling me to grab a knife and rid the world of this infestation of stupidity, but I held myself back.

Now I'm browsing over some tech news for a story and then I see this.  Now, don't get me wrong, I'm excited for the game itself, but I'm not excited about the coming onslaught of fanboy bullshit.  Depending on how good KZ3 is, I may end up strangling several fanboys before being arrested and convicted of murder.

With that, I bid you farewell for the remainder of the weekend as well as Monday.  If anything is posted between now and then, it will be by my friend Sudatze.
