Dual Pixels - Ascend New Gods has just been announced for Xbox 360. Produced by the developers of Toy Soldiers, Ascend New Gods features huge colossus giants and looks like a mild hack-n-slash in the making...
My mind kept going "Hey a new god of war... who's this guy?" For the entire video
Sony announces God of War Ascension. MS comes up with Ascend New Gods.. hmmmm...there's a limit to the cloning process there dolly..
If it's a retail game, then I am in. New IP, that is refreshing.
There is nothing refresh about a generic GOW clone (just look at the character design, grahics, animation etc).
Let's not be too quick to rush in and insult the game by comparing it to God of War, it may well be an extremely intricate, complex and tactical fighting game.. didn't look like it though..
If it had been Sony making a blatant Gears clone, you'd be hating on it so hard your reason would break.
I'm glad this game is clearly inspired by and a response to God of War. We can now get past this "all Sony does copy." Every company takes a page out of each others book.
Exactly, look at Tomb Raider and Uncharted going back and forth. Technically they are both "blatant clones" of pitfall... PlaystationAllStar looks better and better but no one really complained when TMNT smash up came out did they. Also wasn't there a Onimusha smash bro style game on the PS2?
Oh yes another GOW clone like dantes inferno lol hahahaha
hahaha between a ridiculous Uncharted clone (Tomb Raider) and a God of War even uglier clone, this press conference is the most ridiculous i have ever seen in my life !
Be careful abzdine, people will argue Uncharted copied Tomb Raider considering Tomb Raider was on PS1.
Anyway, I thought GOW aswell. I never played Dante's Inferno(besides the demo) wasnt it a successful GOW clone?
The only aspect I feel uncharted copied from Tomb Raider was the overall theme. Gameplay and set pieces Naughty Dog made for themselves. I got a heavy vibe of Uncharted set pieces and over the top action while watching the demo. Although I do admit i really like the mature theme.
I agree with you but the idea of a treasure hunter is not new and i agree Tomb Raider made it very very popular. But Uncharted took another path with the second and third episodes and i don't understand why Tomb Raider has to take the key ingredients of what makes Uncharted what it is, especially when they tried to give the franchise a kick in the ass and a complete revamp.
After SONY announcing a total rip off of Super Smash Bros, SONY fanboys have no room to talk about other company copying one of SONY' games.
You seem to be lacking a LOT of videogame knowledge because SEGA had a game called Fighters Megamix on Sega Saturn with all imaginable SEGA characters fighting against each other and that happened waaaay before any Smash Bros game. Sorry to disappoint you !
Honestly, this game just looked awful. The animations looked really poorly done. Fluidity is of utmost importance in these kinds of games. I'm shocked. The other 2 new exclusives they showed, though they didn't show gameplay, at least looked promising in concept. This game just looked stale and unpolished from the gameplay clips they showed. Not into it.
I was not blown away by this conference!
I agree...I thought I would be surprised this year based on the flack Microsoft has received for having weak conferences for the last few years...oh well...
So people mock MS for making a game thats nothing like GOW other than it has blood and action but praise and defend to the death an EXACT COPY of SSB? All sony did was echange characters and thats ok because sony fans asked for them to plagerise nintendo.
I forgot its N4G. Everyones a cynical hypocrit and hated MS no matter what they do.
Game didnt really look amazing imo but it may turn out alright. Its something new at least.
lol even the name is similar to God of War: Ascension don't kid yourself
Woah! What you are doing is no different. You mock Battle Roayle for being a SSB clone, but are defending Ascend New Gods when it is clearly inspired by God of War.
yeah its nothing like GOW sure buddy lol hahahahahaha
I thought this game was a sequel to Bloodforge is ascend new gods a XBLA game?
Umm, according to joystiq this is going to be a tactical game which would make it nothing like GoW Is joystiq wrong? or is the "internets" on n4g wrong?
