Try The Fan-Made Killzone Card Game

It's amazing what fans can do in their spare time.

If you're a huge Killzone fan and you love the atmosphere and setting, you might want to expand upon your sci-fi immersion. We've learned there's a fan-made game, and it has nothing to do with interactive entertainment on a video screen; no, it's a card game. Designed by "thepineapple1," the improvised game has you going one-on-one with another player. By using Action Points, you can command and promote soldiers, equip weapons, and even have the benefit of vehicles.

There's a downloadable starter kit and a detailed rule book, though, so you'll have to learn the ropes before diving in. Provided you've got a few extra color ink cartridges lying around, feel free to download both the Helghast starter pack and the ISA starter pack. It might prove to be entertaining, especially if you know someone else who really loves Killzone...and maybe is a huge Pokemon fan, or something. No, the styles aren't similar at all, but card playing is card playing, right?

I still remember working at EB when they sold Pokemon cards. Felt like I was working in Toys R Us for a while...sooooo stupid. Lines of brainwashed five-year-olds instead of gamers. 'rolling eyes'

Guerilla just needs to add this into KZ3 as a mini game. Players then can refine their cards into special items and equipment.

Yeah, the Helghast won't know what hit them.

great idea Temjin.
Madden did something like that, I dont remember what it was called but it can get pretty fun. That would be cool of the team at KZ does something like this.
But KZ is being released in a few weeks, so maybe they should just keep tweaking it and get plenty of copy's out(feels like GT5 talk).

KZ3 is on my most haves, most likely a first day pickup, but the first week for sure.

This is kind of cool. But it might be a good idea to get some good paper before printing these out. Some good think paper.

Come on Ben, we know that you wanted some of those Pokemon cards as well ;)

No but seriously, nothing wrong with trading card games. Hell even the entire world populace in FF8 and FF9 played them.

EDIT: Even Xenosaga.

Lol I remember that fad. There were Pokemon pogs (we called them Tazos (plural) here) you get from Lay's packet of crisps. That was a long time ago though.

Everyone else has already hacked the Eye of Judgment game, they should steal some of the bar codes off those cards and turn this into a PSN PSEye game, sell it for a couple of bucks (of course by stealing, I mean getting approval from Sony, lol)

Qubex,
It must be legal because Killzone sent me the twitter link to this card game.
So not only do they approved of it, they must be pretty thrilled with it too.

I'm hoping they incorporate it in KZ4 somehow, but only as an optional side mini-game.

come to think of it, this would be the perfect marketing ploy!
perfect way to make a quick buck, and perfect way to get KZ3 out into the market.
why havent sony made KZ3 playing cards yet?
they really dont like promoting there games do they?
no wonder they sell so poorly!
