1UP: "Prequels have been used to delve into Kratos' history, and with Ascension, Santa Monica Studios is taking us even further back in time to a point when Kratos possessed a shred of compassion."
"Ascension looks as if it's the most brutal game in the series to date" yeah playing the SP demo i thought the gameplay would be the same but man ...the gameplay got more brutal and fast and they add alot of moves and magic and i'm loving the MP god of war ascension is on my day 1 list
And to think we've seen next to NOTHING on the game yet. Todd Papy is so impressed with the SP he doesn't even want to show another walkthrough before release. Loving the vibrant environments this time around, and like you said, the speed. It feels much tighter and faster. Really can't wait for this.
i need to try the multiplayer it looks really interesting, and im hearing alot of good things from people,when is the beta?
sometime this month for Plus and yes it's awesome
thax,looks like ill be buying plus again.
I've never missed a GOD OF WAR game since the 1st one on PS2. I can't wait, March can't come any soon.
The God of War games have always been AAA games. Even if Ascension might have a shorter single player campaign and an unnecessary multiplayer it will still be a top tier game. The PS3 has The Last of Us and God of War Ascencion plus Tomb Raider and many more for 2013. It will be a solid year for the PS3.
"Quick-time events have always been a fixture of God of War, though they arguably wore our their welcome before the series made its debut. QTE-style moments haven't been abandoned in Ascension, but they have been reworked so they no longer revolve around hitting a button indicated on-screen. The camera will, as in a QTE, get in tight during these moments, but there won't be any Simon Says going on. Instead, players might use their two attacks and dodge ability to get through the sequence without being specifically instructed every step of the way. It seems like a fair middle ground between facilitating these cinematic moments and not reducing the player's input to a series of designated button presses that result in a Game Over if not successfully executed." Will someone explain the QTE?
"Quick Time Events" In video games, a Quick Time Event (QTE) is a method of context-sensitive gameplay in which the player performs actions on the control device shortly after the appearance of an on-screen prompt you only see it when you about to finish someone in boss fight in god of war games
