Fellow Americans, I hope you’re enjoying your long President’s Day weekend. I ran into a Canadian colleague earlier this week at our Motorstorm Apocalypse event (video upcoming), and while she was unable to explain “Family Day” to me, I’m glad you’ll likely have time off as well.
Tuesday’s a holiday in its own right around the PlayStation offices: Killzone 3 launch day. I’m currently playing through the campaign utilizing the PlayStation Move. As a longtime console shooting fan, I was a bit hesitant to try out the new controls, but they’re accurate enough to earn me the “Eagle Eye – Every Sniper Rifle bullet is a kill” Trophy the very first time I picked up a sniper rifle. And I do enjoy stabbing the Move controller forward to engage a brutal melee.
I expect a lively debate about what settings are the best with Move controls post release. If you want my suggestion, I go with a max vertical dead zone, and zero horizontal, turning the sensitivity all the way down, and the rotation speed at about 40%. Been working well for me so far!
