[God of War] I'm mad, but I ain't stressin'

Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular

Kratos is back, and now he's the last of us, cause there's a little guy and some woods and now it's Norse gods

He may or may not still be mad


also there's this guy which is probably just a wider mythology thing but I just think of Dark Souls

but the main reason I make a thread now is






game good

    I'm doing God of War first, as that seems to have the highest likelihood for shitheads (and that does include writers on gaming sites throwing up analysis articles with spoilers in the screencap or headlines) to spoil cool moments for me while I'm still playing Yakuza 6.

    I can't imagine that Yakuza 6 is going to have much in the way of thinkpieces or analysis articles.

    This came out of nowhere for me.

    The original E3 trailer intrigued me, but then I forgot about it. Then game writers started hinting that the game may be more than just "good" and now a lot of people I trust are calling it amazing.

    Excited!

    The fact that the embargo is up over a week in advance means Sony knows what it has on its hands right now.

    Sony is really killing it in the exclusives department. Two big ones just next week. That's nuts.

    However it does make me wonder what a year from now we'll look back on this game that's getting 10s everywhere and go "well obviously this part of it was super shitty"

    Need to get this. I enjoy all these games. Even the ones that aren't so great.

    Also, Santa Monica Studios right now have to feel fucking good.

    Before it was announced who would have thought that they would not only somehow be able to get people excited about God of War, but actually somehow evolve the game and character to the degree that the reviews are praising it for.

    Yes, but then I'll get to watch the Best Friends suffer through it so it'll be a net gain for me.

    Eh, scores are nonsense to me. It's the text I'm reading that has me amped. Every game, even the ones I unabashedly love, has a section where I'm all "yeah fuck that bit that bit sucks" (Persona 5, Nier Automata, Horizon Zero Dawn). I think the only game I've played that escaped that problem for me was Titanfall 2, and even if that game had a bad part the nature of the game's pacing meant that you were past the annoying bit within 5 minutes.

    Thank you for finally giving me an excuse to get a PS4 Pro.

    Patrick's review at Waypoint is a mess, needs some of that Brad Shoemaker TLC I hear so much about. It's a good mess but a rambling, shambling one and at one point, I thought the article had broken because there was phrase just copy pasted again.

  • KyouguKyougu Registered User regular
    I just rewatched the 2016 trailer.

    Man, that was a hell of a reveal, in hindsight its no surprise that the game seemed to turned out as amazing as it did.

  • NogginNoggin Registered User regular
    I never played the others, but I'm 100% down for Dad of War

    It looked great right from the announcement, and everything I've seen about the son, axe, and skills sounds amazing

    Sigh

    I was fully prepared to wave this off but it sounds like they’ve made Kratos into a character that I won’t find completely off-putting

    I wonder how much of the pantheon you fight. Thor? Loki? Odin?

  • CenoCeno pizza time Registered User regular
    I'm assuming the big snake is Jormungandr.

    The sea serpent that Thor ultimately falls to in Norse mythology's Ragnarok.

    I just remembered that ascension, chains of Olympus, and ghost of Sparta were on PS+, though I guess only the first of those is on PS3.

    Is that one pretty good / worth checking out?

    Battletag: Noggin#1936
  • Medium DaveMedium Dave Registered User regular
    They're all fine, I guess. The formula was so played out by that time, though. I hear Ascension's multi was fun.

    If you just want to mash square and then rip some heads off with circle, it's another one of those GoW games that will let you do that. And it is also very clearly the final straw, the very same type of sameness that prompted this revival and reconstruction of the series.

  • MadicanMadican No face Registered User regular
    So it sounds like the reviewers have good things to say about the story in addition to the gameplay? I think I might have to pre-order this on Amazon to snag that 20% discount from Prime.

    Also finding that a LOT of people who were apprehensive about the kid's presence are saying that he's very much not being a kid and getting in the way or being stupid, even assisting Kratos from time to time. So, yeah, points.

    well shit, I put down some money on this

    I don't know how I'm gonna balance both this and Yakuza, but goddamnit I'm gonna try

    hearing it's actually a Zelda game, which means it's actually Darksiders, was too enticing

    Yesterday's Waypoint Radio was mainly about God of War and a good listen if you're side-eyeing all the perfect or near-perfect scores coming out

    Spoiler: Austin definitely has a cooler reaction to the game than everyone else does
