    I can't view that video at work but the mere fact that there's been a mention of GoW 3 is enough to make me throb in anticipation. Does anyone know what platform(s) it will be on? I'll be really sad if it's not on the 360 as I don't wish to purchase a PS3 since I am broke and there aren't enough games on the system to justify a purchase anyways.

    God of War is owned by Sony, so I don't think you'll be seeing a 360 port any time soon.

    EDIT - Too slow.

    It doesn't really matter as long as you're brutally destroying monsters in ways so awesome and violent that you literally laugh out loud. Hell, the graphics could have stayed the same and that would be okay with me.

    Though by not owning a PS3 I guess it doesn't really matter what I think. :D

    The rather simplistic gameplay started to get tiring in the second game. A bunch of different weapons could make me want it though.

    Why Sigh, GoW 1&2 were both very much enjoyable. I'm greatly looking forward to spending some time with 3. Also, I kinda like to know more about what happened after GoW2.

    Just for future reference, the God of War games are developed by Sony Computer Entertainment* (santa monica iirc) and Sony publishes them*. They're a Sony IP and so God of War'll never be on anything but Sony hardware....

    *Sony contracted Ready at Dawn studios to do the PSP version of God of War.

    No it's the third time because it is the 4th game in the series and the first title in the series can't be a rehash of itself.. =P

    If you liked 1, play 2.

    By the Gods, it was intense. A much better experience. Really was probably the best of the last games for the system.


    I bought a PS3 knowing this was coming out eventually. It was listed as a positive on my decision list. I am so looking forward to this, it almost hurts. I must know what happens (though I already know the "high level" outcome, I must know how it comes about).

    I have high hopes for this and I hope I am not disappointed. The released trailer fuels that hope.

    Sigh.

    I totally fail to see the problem. I think of God of War, Virtua Fighter 5, Stranglehold (Max Payne), Prince of Persia, Resident Evil 5, Ratchet & Clank - these are games I don't want them to change too much - they're already close to perfect. And tons of people were bitching and moaning when they removed a single button press from the platforming of PoP.

    God of War doesn't need to change. It's fuckawesome. Let new IPs like Mirror's Edge or constantly-evolving titles like MGS do stuff that would have been impossible last gen. Sometimes you don't need to fix what ain't broke.

    Also - you need to put the PA God of War II strip in the OP.

    "This is the first level."

    Yeah, I pretty well agree. When I buy a God of War I want to play a God of War. I don't want any huge revolutions to the core game. I'm sure there'll be enough changes to make it interesting, though, and that's all I want. Really, I just want some hyperviolent greek mythological ass kicking.
