been playing it for a couple weeks now. VERY good multiplayer.

@nimblestassassin
Yeah i agree with you man ... I love the game, but the 2 maps are getting tired for me. When they added capture the flag I was excited, but it was in the same map ... was a bit disappointed. Im sure there'll be more maps at retail tho.

Is ps+ for Vita going to be updated?
porkChop  +   616d ago
The Vita Plus was originally said to be exactly like the PS3 Plus. 3 games a month. Last month all we got was 2 games though, 1 was an 8bit (RCR), and 1 of them was horrible. Seriously, Chronovolt is just terrible, and most critics agree seeing as it has a 40 on Metacritic, and a 3.5/10 user rating. Sony brought out Plus for the Vita as a way to garner up more interest/sales for the handheld, but they seem to forget that Plus doesn't mean anything if the games being given every month are crap. They need to step their game up.

On the PS3 side, the last few months have been crap. There have been a couple good games, but the majority were crap. This week isn't so bad, Mega Man is good, though those games definitely aren't for everyone.

Well they are taken out Chronovault this week so get that piece of crap while you still can for free! But that's why I thought we'll have a Vita game to replace it. But I guess it's for next week then.
porkChop  +   616d ago
Yeah they're taking Chronovolt out this week, so hopefully next week we'll have a new Vita game to play with.

Same, i'm really glad to see MegaMan 9 & 10 up there.

Anyone play the beta yet? Is it any good?
Nimblest-Assassin  +   616d ago
Its good, but the two maps got really old for me... I was in the private beta 2 weeks ago
Nicaragua  +   616d ago
Yeah its really good. It feels just like a God of War game should and there seems to be a lot more depth to it than what you might expect.

I think the Beta is awesome!

The GoW universe fits perfectly for this type of multiplayer.

The best advice I could give is to spend some time learning the gameplay mechanics. You will NOT be able to just start playing and be a God. There is a learning curve.

It is kinda like rock, paper, scissors in that certain moves override others.

There is a lot to unlock such as armor, weapons, magics, relics, and items. Then you can customize your warrior to your play style.

I really like the objective game modes over the FFA. When you have 4 good players on each side, the matches can get really intense.

There is some lag/glitches in the Beta at times were Burtal Kills will not register or your hits won't connect, but it is a Beta after all.

When I get the full game I will definitely be spending a lot of time with the multiplayer portion. A lot of people say GoW didn't need it, and that may be true, but I think they made a multiplayer that will only compliment the final package.

When you perform your first Brutal Kill, you WILL feel like a Boss!!

And this is coming from someone who plays lots of online games.
