    Glad to hear it! You guys make it all worth it. :-)

    You should try your luck at remixing the track even if that’s not your expertise. The software is a free download and it can’t hurt to try!

Cool, a Remix contest for Killzone 3. Question though, Does it have to be the song “Stahl Arms Battle”? Can we pick a different song from the Original Soundtrack?

And How about a Story Contest for Killzone? I found Killzone 3 Story pretty underwhelming. I felt there’s so much elements that GG could have played with yet they barely or didn’t touch it at all in Single Player campaign. And every time I hear Killzone 3 Main menu theme, I feel like writing out a story and sending it to GG, just to offer my opinion.

Hopefully there will be more ways to win the Limited Edition if there are still more available.

@ ajaghosal

I agree with you there, already platinumed KZ3 and am just bored with how mainstream the MP is, the campaign may have been better this time around though.

but the new MP is lame from the controls being to loose, the maps too bottlenecked and small (half the games are on the KZ2 maps for a reason), the lack of decent servers (I would be dropped after playing through a map or two) and lack of server choices and custom games, terrible matchmaking and very unbalanced games (rank and number of players), uninteresting leveling up, everybody playing as Tactician because the Assault Rifle is best then add capturing and a Rocket Launcher on top of that.

You don’t actually have to use the Acid software. check the official rules.

You should focus on fixing this badly broken and rushed game than making stupid contests.


+ Thrill_Kill on March 11th, 2011 at 1:20 am said:

I love Killzone 3, and have been playing it since release. I bought the Helghast Edition and have enjoyed it very much.

I do however wish to make a request for a patch that fixes the overlapping of images during gameplay and cut scenes (moreover the cut scenes) during 3D use on my Panasonic Plasma 50″ 3DTV. The intro of the game is simply outstanding, and the 3D is done perfectly with images of the broken glass flying out of the screen, and there is no crosstalk at all! Then the game starts playing and I can see crosstalk during gameplay and on every cut scene through the game in 3D making it hard on the eyes, and also killing the 3D experience.

Whatever they did to make the intro play so perfectly in 3D is what they need to patch into the rest of the game entirely. Otherwise the 3D in this game is just a so-so experience, with lots of image doubling that you have to deal with.

Please get Guerrilla Games to fix this serious issue with 3D in this game.

I will be all over this remix contest. It should be a fun challenge considering most of the stems for the track are in 6/4. But remixing soundstracks is fun times. Good luck to everyone that decided to enter!


+ Jimisthebest on March 11th, 2011 at 2:10 pm said:

I decided to try :D! Although I have a important question.
Can I also use other software like Ableton or Reason? Or am I orderd to use the ACID software? I would like to know because I am already familiar with Ableton.



+ Jimisthebest on March 11th, 2011 at 2:15 pm said:

Oh and the song is called ”Stahl Arms Battle” but I dont have the song??? Or is it called: ”Stahl Arms – Battle my own’
I bought the special edition of KZ3 and the ost was there aswell. So the full name is ”Stahl Arms – Battle my own’
