Ode to the Warhawk Public Beta

Ode to the Warhawk Public Beta

Hey, all. I wanted to extend KUDOS and our thanks to all the Warhawk Public Beta testers out there who contributed to tweaking and balancing the game so it truly becomes a game for the gamers – which is what Incognito’s goal was all along, right Dylan?

With that said, as a nod to the top Public Beta testers and top Public Beta forum posters – take a close look at several of the Warhawks and Nemesis aircraft flying about, you’ll find your names painted on the ships. Congrats. Regrettably we couldn’t put all of your names down, but know that this was meant for all of you.

@ Dylan Jobe

If you haven’t read my other post at the Warhawk FAQ blog, here goes:
I’m in a clan that’s currently doing a machinima for R:FoM. Will this game ever support spectator mode to make a movie out of this game. Anyway GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would have thought the idea behind having gamers participate in a BETA-stage was to find bugs and generally tweak the game to a better state.”
Im sure lots of beta-testers did that , dont worry about that , i myself a reported like 4 or 5 bugs that i was able to find or the bugs found me.
For example i was about to jump off a wall down because i saw an enemy , instead i went trough the surface and died.

You should be gratefull that there was a beta.

dont be jealous patrick you couldve gotten a friend to share the bet with you.

Perhaps, UCIGASU, you don’t know what a Beta is for. There is always a Beta period for a program, whether you write it yourself or it’s by teams of people at some mega-corporation. The difference here was that it was released to a select few of the unwashed. I didn’t participate in it, nor did I even know about it until after it was done, so I have nothing to be grateful for.
Nor, coolasj19, am I jealous. I have no use for a pin, and while the boxart is certainly nice, I have enough stuff on my walls as it is, thanks.
The point is that a Beta isn’t about getting a high score, or it shouldn’t be. And especially when it has been admitted that many of the testers ‘cheated’ by using some now-withdrawn features to get a higher score, solely rewarding high scorers makes me wonder about the real purpose behind this ‘Public Beta Testing’. Why not reward those who actually tried to improve the game, not shoot down the most planes?

Sweet. I really wished i would have gotten a chance to play the beta. O well, ill be able to play the game next week.

——————————————————————-Someone from Sony please read this.

Heavenly Sword is suppose to be a huge title for PS3 that will try sell systems and take away sales from Halo 3.

With that said. I just read the UK IGN rating for Heavenly Sword, and the guy gave it a 7.0. Come on whats going on here. He said the graphics are sweet, the animation and sound is good, but the game gets repetitve and theirs some problems with the combat.

I really hope the US version of Heavenly Sword isnt this bad. I was hoping Heavnely Sword would get a middle to high 9, because if it doesnt, why even hype the game and release it.

This game was suppose to be a game us fans can drop back on to help sales of the PS3, and reasure people the PS3 is better than 360.

Dylan, what is your responce to the lame review by PSM?? I for one was in the BETA, and I loved it…easily a 10 out of 10 in my book! I am picky when it comes to games, and I have beta tested a lot of games, and this by far is one hell of a game.

Loucifer said:

Warhawk launched moved to Aug 30th???


I guess when i was told specifically that there “will be no delays and Warhawk will be ready for its Aug 28th launch” was a crock of s**t then???

Now on sheer spite you can keep the damn game….im done with the lies!!

Loucifer said:

August 24th, 9:16 pm

Hey guys.

About that 30th release date,…that’s just for Europe. US release is still the 28th.

(That story was from a UK website…to bad their editorial wasn’t specific on territory)

Watch your back on Tuesday.

patrickp3 said:

August 27th, 8:22 am

Thanks Mark for the confirmation of my observations. I’m not trying to bash Warhawk, I’ve pre-ordered my copy from Bast Buy (Blu-ray version on sale here in Canada for $40!), but merely pointing out an apparent fact. Your lack of protest speaks volumes.
As for that UC-something guy, valid criticism is just that: valid. If I owned stock in Sony or any other company, I wouldn’t want people to keep their mouths shut and just hope for something better. Think about it.
And that’s a pretty poor excuse for delaying the European release date: updating the PS Store somehow cannot be done out of schedule! Please, spare me. MS and Nintendo are having a good laugh at that one, guaranteed.

@ Mark valledor

So why do we have to wait in the UK? Because i aint buying that “the store gets updated on Thursday not tuesday” BS

Since when was the US store updated on a Tuesday? Hmmm looks like SONY is talking BS again and contradicting there own statement.

scar1983 said:

August 27th, 12:43 pm

I think the real reaon is that you Americans are crap on every game so need the headstart.

Loucifer said:

August 27th, 4:12 pm

@ 184… I always had this same problem as well ever since I bought the PS3 a couple of months back.

I have two credits, yet I am unable to add funds to my wallet for PSN store. I keep getting a “credit card information is not valid” message…

Oh well guess I’ll never D/L anything from PSN then…

Yeah, ‘Ode to the Public Beta’. Yeah, the game’s workin real well right now, ain’t it? It’s been out for what, 3 days now, and been offline for, what, about 1/4 of the time? Shoulda not worried about hypin the game so much, worried more about fixin the online part of an online only game. Jeez.
