someone need to stop me
i keep watch the live ad ...i watched it like 100 time by now
Dwalls1171  +   1097d ago
Ive watch the 30 minute gameplay about 8 times, ive tried not to but I just couldent help myself :(
showtimefolks  +   1096d ago
already have the limited edition pre ordered. after watching the last single player trailers i am just amazed how each GOW game looks and plays better

I know i shouldn't but my mind keeps thinking how awesome GOW4 will be on PS4

i know we are all excited about new playstation system but how come each exclusive looks and plays better than the one before? if ps3 is as old as everyone wants me to believe where are ND and santa monica finding the hidden power?

and if exclusives look this great on ps3, how real could things get with ps4?
LOGICWINS  +   1096d ago
GOW4 on the PS4 will be just...scary. It'll look like CGI.
Ezz2013  +   1096d ago

GOWA already look like CGI
and so is beyond and TLOU

but i still see your point though ..

Edit: @logicwins
yeah for a 7 year old hardware it amazing and mind blowing
that every new game manage to look better

i don't know how but they keep make my jaw drop till this day

and i'm happy to see the previews about the TLOU/GOWA are prasing the gfx alot

^^YUP, it already does. Honestly, I don't see how they could make it look better. Sony will undoubtedly find a way!

I hope this one is better then 3 i really did not enjoy it like I thought I would, not saying it was a bad game cause it it's not, But up until 3 GOW including the psp and cell phone game was hands down my favorite game, but half way threw 3 it was some one hit the switch. to be honest I think when you take away the graphics it was just a repetitive hack and slash with a story that went completely foolish, this dude went from a half god to having all the gods fear him to killing all of them and some of the titans, they really just went to far I mean come on.
LOGICWINS  +   1096d ago
Yeah, Ascension is what GOW3 was supposed to be. I'm buying the Collector's Edition =D
j-blaze  +   1098d ago
i watched the 30min of this game, it's like an expansion to GOW3, same gameplay, animations, fixed camera and bosses that don't require skills to beat, anyway i'm getting this game when it gets cheap

here's an advice for Santa Monica Studio...when considering making next GOW game work with Platinum or Capcom

^ You have lost all credibility with your post. You must be blind because the game looks amazing. God of War don't need to change anything it's damn good the way it is.
DigitalRaptor  +   1098d ago
Yeah, because the first 30 minutes is SOOOO similar to what happened in the whole of God of War 3.... LMAO!

"Same gameplay" - It's God of War and the first 30 minutes doesn't represent the whole game.

"Same animations" - utter BS.

"Fixed camera" - a hallmark of God of War, deal with it.

"Bosses that don't require skills to beat" - Never played on Titan/Chaos mode then... if I can believe you've ever even been interested in or played any to begin with...

Here's some advice for you. Watch and learn as the industry gives this incredible game and Sony's #1 studio its dues.

Yeah, the large boss battle in the demo didn't look particularly difficult, but I don't care. I'm in it for the experience, not the difficulty.
Blastoise  +   1096d ago
"Work with Platinum or Capcom" Yeah because they're the best developers in the industry, right J-blaze?

It's not like every God Of War game has received excellent reviews, tons of sales & considered amongst the best in the genre. Santa Monica Studio should take notes from the guys who made Resident Evil 6!

Stop talking rubbish for once will ya?
poopsack  +   1096d ago
Lol work with Platinum. So Kratos can start triple flipping in midair and the absolute worst rock music can start playing while he's taking down an ogre. We dont need Kratos as another generic anime-style badass.
badz149  +   1096d ago
that's j-blaze for ya
never seize to amaze with his utterly ridiculous trolling skills!

bosses don't require skill to beat? of course...if you play on the easiest difficulty! go against Hades on Chaos or even Titan difficulty in GoW3 and see if you can just mash those combos and win! nahh...why do I even bother? you're here for the sake of TROLLING and only trolling! you don't play the game at all to begin with!
Hudahudahuda  +   1096d ago
Here's some advice for you J-Blaze, next time look at which series had to get rebooted in a desperate attempt to regain popularity and look at which series had almost been canned due to bad sales before it was picked up by Nintendo, thus abandoning it's original fanbase and then look at the series that has been the best selling of it's genre and has made it's loyal 3 million plus fanbase happy by doing what it does best and doesnt have a bunch of bitter weeaboo's angry that American made is the best as a fanbase.
007Bond  +   1096d ago
Agree these fanboys need to STFU it looks just like 3
StrongMan  +   1098d ago
This is why God of War is the king of action hack & slash. God of War sells more and scores higher than ALL other games in this genre for a reason. It's the best.
WeAreLegion  +   1096d ago
Before God of War III came out, I would have disagreed with this. DMC3 was the king of hack 'n slash. Now, that title belongs to GOWIII.
remanutd55  +   1097d ago
This is my most anticipated ps3 title this year but i really want Sony Santa Monica to take a break from the franchise and create a new IP on the ps4, Action/Adventure/platformer/RP G would be great lol.

Their second team is working on a new IP.

this "a new IP on the ps4, Action/Adventure/platformer/RP G"
shivvy24  +   1096d ago
that live action trailer is amazing , seen it like 30 times
Karpetburnz  +   1096d ago
Yes everything about it is great, even the music fits really well.
007Bond  +   1096d ago
Same as the last 3 nothing new here just slightly better graphics
L30N4KU  +   1096d ago
It looks the same, I'm a little disappointed. I know you don't change a formula that works but still...
