Remember in 1988 when Kirk Gibson, injured, hit a game-winning World Series home run? This will be kind of like that.
:) "Remember in 1988 when Kirk Gibson, injured, hit a game-winning World Series home run? This will be kind of like that" Can I get a what, what. Insta-smile there.
Hmm i am not American and don't know about american football, so can someone translate what was he trying to say with that sentence?
It's baseball. He hit the ball so far, he was able to take all the bases and get home.
It referring to baseball. It when guy score to win the game.
Ok, so it is positive. But why does he says "injured"? (now i sound like 10 year old asking questions)
Kirk Gibson was coming off the bench with an injury when he hit the Home Run to win the game 1 of the World series. think about that for a sec. its just too epic
That was Kirk Gibson's only at bat, but it made such an impact, he was honored as the most valuable player of the entire series. ... I'm getting goosebumps... 12
What the point of showing Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 before Killzone 2 release? Why not concentrate on Killzone 2, and then sometime in march to show U2 and GoW3? Of`course i`m looking forward to new info about U2 and GoW3, especially to see that trailer, which Jaffe saw... But why distract from KZ2 before it`s release? EDIT: TheTwelve, still it would be better to reveal those two games later, after KZ2 release. Anyway, i hope Sony will have what to show later this year... =) callahan09, i don`t mind MOMENTUM, but keep it for MARCH, not before KZ2 release, distracting from it`s greatness. =)
Too pawned : If you wouldn't ask, i would. It's not a shame to not know those american oddities.
Crazzyman--- Killzone 2 has enough hype, thanks. Time for Sony to spread it out. You know, if Sony does it right, they can completely drown 2009 with hype for their exclusives. They've already got January and February covered, now they need to overload the internet with something else.... 12
"What the point of showing Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 before Killzone 2 release? Why not concentrate on Killzone 2, and then sometime in march to show U2 and GoW3?" Answer: MOMENTUM. Everyone who's enough into gaming to pay attention to these special revelations already knows about KZ2, and those who are going to buy it have already made up their minds. The reviews are in, the commercials will be coming out AFTER this God of War revelation, so... what are they going to do now that they've got the Killzone 2 thing locked down? Make sure all the PS3 owners out there know they're not going to be left out in the cold for the future, and show them what they can be excited for down the road. Make everyone see that the PS3 has got a steady stream of excellent software, at all times.
"CrazzyMan Like guy above said, momentum. To keep ppl talking about PS3 and it's exclusive games. Besides is that going to stop you from buying KZ2 or anyone else that is interested in that game? NO
Yea it helps with people who are on the fence about getting a ps3 just for killzone. You feel more comfortable knowing that there are oher big games coming out in the future.
"Can I get a what, what." in the butt?
Cant wait aether:)
I am not one to ever get intra cultural up in here--- but "oddities" 1.8? Apology for possibly sounding like a hot headed yankee, but there are certain cliche's about America--and two of them are this.... Baseball and apple pie. Now if you don't know this, cool. If you dont agree with it, cool. Shoot, even if you do know and agree and just don't like sports or baseball, then fine. But don't call it an oddity please, Or are americans in general a global oddity to the rest of the world? -scratch that it is an oddity--- *don't answer that! = )*
U2 and GOW3 will obviously not release near KZ2 release timeframe so its not be a problem. If anything it will attract more attention to the PS3 now which will be good for KZ2.
I wonder how many people went to Wikipedia to act like they know who Kirk Gibson is lol
1.16: You may have misunderstood what i said, or i said it badly. By "oddities", i didn't want to be offensive, i actually didn't found a close word in my mind vocabulary to explain what i thought, and Google Translate said me we call that "oddities". I just meant that baseball and football (the one with the armor) have a very particular popularity among the global american people that we, foreigners, don't always get. So to me, the closest word was "bizarre" in the French way. Something "bizarre" is not negative, i can ensure it.
Just put it out already, and quit wasting our time.
Can't wait for this news!!!!!!!!!!!
"oddity" ... have to add my two cents, here. But the US are the only ones winning a "world series" or crowning a "world champion" (super bowl) without the participation of any other nation :)
if your American and dont appreciate the older steroid free days of baseball something is wrong with you....
God Of War sucks so i don't understand why anyone would get excited for a crap game. so i can't give my own opinion if i don't like a game i'll say it just like you droids if you don't like a Xbox360 game say it.
Cause the only game you get excited about is a retarded bear with a [email protected] chicken humping it's shoulder.

I've happened to run across three comments of yours today alone, and every time I wish I could give you a massive amount of bubbles. lol.. rock on. - And GoW3 will rock everyone's s**t, no questions asked.
Keep on playing with that giant nosed bear and his crazy "chicken".
Come on guys only one bubble to go!
"God Of War sucks so i don't understand why anyone would get excited for a crap game." LOL, PP you are a Joke!! If God of War 3 was coming to the Xbox 360 you would be wetting your bed every night with excitement. Looks like you're running out of bubbles again Killzone2Flop aka PP, time to make a new troll account.
Kratos is better than your fetish for a queerbearandchicken
so your next user name would be "gow3sux", eh?
It's not been a very good 2009 so far has it for you and your xBot Zombie DLC Lemmings!!! ;-D Your going down with the Titanic = xBox 360 - http://www.huffingtonpost.c... ;-D + I didn't read what it/he/she said when i opened up your comment to do er my comment.
"If God of War 3 was coming to the Xbox 360 you would be wetting your bed every night with excitement" PP doesn't need GOW on the 360 to wet his bed he does that on his own without the games pop pop pop say bye to KZ2FLop hello new troll account not sure why the mods just don't IP ban you PP no one would miss you.
lol even xbox fanboys would disagree with you if they either have a psp or ps2, if you dont have either, your point is justified because you obviously haven't played any game in its series. But once you play any god of war game, no matter who you are, im 90% sure you'll love it. Wait... anyone agree with him? 0 agree 30 disagree.
I lol'd @ GoW2 and GoW:CoO Edge scores. (both got 70's) good old edge.
if it was released on the 360 you would love the game . you are a blind fan boy
In other words: Confirmed, Best Action is in development by Sony Santa Monica Studios exclusively for Playstation 3. *disclaimer* Gamers may be subjected to dizziness, faint, jizzing, and many other unknown side effects due to the epic, bad-ass, best game that is God Of War.
Is there really a need to say "exclusive for ps3"?It sounds like bragging that you get a game somebody else doesn't and that's not cool man.Everyone should be able to play god of war.That way everyone will know how awesome that game is.God of war 3 is gonna be awesome.Why would you wanna keep other people from playing it?
Everyone CAN play God of War 3.... you just need a PS3 to do it. No one's stopping people from getting a PS3, that's all im sayin
omg killzone 2 now gow 3 and still uncharted 2 and heavy rain ps3 is a must have console.period
Awesome can't wait!
prepare for chaos on 2-13-09
O-O W-W-What?! Does that mean...new goodies? *faints*
lol yes indeed it does
I wonder if this time they'll actually show a trailer which will make your jaw drop, couldnt bare to see another bunch of disappointed fans
I wasn't disappointed by the VGA God of War 3 trailer and was impressed with what I saw. Seeing Kratos in HD for the first time was awesome and I don't see how a fan could be disappointed with that. It was Jaffe hyping up the game and then it turned out that the VGA trailer didn't look as good as Jaffe was hyping it up to be, but I'm sure that soon enough, we'll see what Jaffe saw, and obviously what Jaffe saw was more up-to-date footage.
Your obviously not a god of war fan.
he confirmed that the trailer he saw was not the same he saw when he was shown at an internal Sony Lunch-in. Sony fans just didn't believe him, when they saw this. in anycase the trailer Some of you are gonna see this GDC for the first time will blow your minds, for those that are apart of it's focus test... :] well they all know why Jaffe was like ZOMG!!!!
God of war is cool, i got it on my psp, and i played it on the ps2 when i had one. But i expected a bit more of this graphically, maybe the new shots will do justice.
Although all of your past posts prove your biased towards one cconsole, i have to agree with you on this one. GOW3 did not make my jaw drop. U2, KZ2, and Heavy Rain all did. GOW3 should be the best looking game ever IMO.
I've been a God of War fan since the first one(not going to play the uglier, smaller version on psp). I too was surprised at the visuals or lack thereof. It's just a trailer, didn't seem like actual gameplay but will reserve judgement till the game drops.
I was thinking the same thing watching the video on PSN lastnight. Not looking good.
If you really had a PS3 you would know that you don't watch videos on PSN. You download them FROM THE PS Store. so I'm calling bullsh!t. why pretend to have a PS3, when you don't? You were probably looking at some low res standard definition version from some sh!tty site. WIshing you could play the game.
Well look at it this way. That moment is considered one of the greatest moments in sports history. So if this game measures up to that moment in any way god help us all! Here's the full details: "In the 1988 World Series against the Oakland Athletics, Gibson saw only a single plate appearance in the series, but it was one of the most memorable and oft-replayed in baseball history. Gibson had severely injured both legs during the League Championship Series and had a stomach virus. He was not expected to play at all. In Game 1 on October 15, 1988 (at Dodger Stadium), with the Dodgers trailing by a score of 4–3, Mike Davis on first, and two out in the ninth inning, manager Tommy Lasorda inserted Gibson as a pinch hitter. Earlier, the TV camera had scanned the dugout and Vin Scully (the legendary Dodger announcer, who was calling the game with Joe Garagiola for NBC television) observed that Gibson was nowhere to be found. According to legend, he was in the clubhouse undergoing physical therapy and saw this on the television, spurring him to get back in the dugout and tell Lasorda he was ready if needed. When Gibson received the news that he would pinch-hit, he went to the clubhouse batting-cage to warm-up. Suffering through such terrible pain in his knee, it is said he was wincing and nearly collapsing after every practice swing. Gibson hobbled up to the plate with Scully commenting, "Look who's coming up!" He was facing Dennis Eckersley, who had saved 45 games in dominant fashion during the regular season. Gibson quickly got behind in the count, 0-2, but received two outside pitches from Eckersley and fouled off a pitch to work to a 2–2 count. On the sixth pitch of his at bat, a ball, Davis stole second. The A's could then have walked Gibson to face Steve Sax, but chose to pitch to him, just as Gossage had done four years earlier. With an awkward, almost casual swing, Gibson used pure upper-body strength to smack a 3–2 backdoor slider over the right-field fence. He hobbled around the bases and pumped his fist as his jubilant teammates stormed the field. The Dodgers won the game, 5–4. The telecast of the home run is also notable because the shot of the ball flying over the wall also captures the taillights of the cars leaving the lot, presumably filled with fans who had either given up hope and were merely leaving early to avoid the traffic. Gibson later said that prior to the Series, Dodger scout Mel Didier had provided a report on Eckersley that claimed with a 3-2 count against a left-handed hitter, one could be absolutely certain that Eckersley would throw a backdoor slider. Gibson said that when the count reached 3-2, he stepped out of the batter's box and, in his mind, could hear Didier's voice, with its distinctive Southern drawl, reiterating that same piece of advice. With that thought in mind, Gibson stepped back into the batter's box; and thus when Eckersley did in fact throw a backdoor slider, it was, thanks to Didier, exactly the pitch Gibson was looking for. The home run was so memorable that it was included as a finalist in a Major League Baseball contest to determine the sport's "Greatest Moment of All-Time." For years after the fact, it was regularly used in This Week in Baseball's closing montage sequence. An edited audio of Scully's 1988 call has been used in 2005 post-season action, in a TV ad featuring a recreational softball game, with a portly player essentially re-enacting that entire moment as he hits the softball over the right field fence to win the game. It was in competition on ESPN's SportsCenter for the Greatest Sports Highlight of All-Time. Perhaps inspired by Gibson's heroics, the Dodgers went on to sweep the A's in the World Series, 4-0."
Wall of text..my only weakness..
This is very interesting text, you must read it !
Damn, I didn't think February could get any better, but Killzone 2 and new God of War 3 info in the same month?! Definantly can't wait.
and all this great news BEFORE February 25th and 27th?!!! :)
Now this is what I am waiting for after I bought my PS3 for LBP. KZ2 not so much, but God of War III oh hell yes.
well at least your looking into god of war 3 it makes one less fanboy to bash at god of war 3
thats cause GOWIII has been on psp and ps2 and has not sucked on any console it has been on.
now heres the bigger question, why does it sound more and more like we might see this game out before the end of the year? because if it did, then i would not know what to say...
Kirk Gibson was not the MVP of the '88 World Series, it was Orel Hershiser. And the Dodgers did not sweep, they lost one game.
cant wait. god of war is what made me switch from gamecube to PS2. cant wait for 3. hope they dont ruin it somehow.
I'm a little sad from reading the interview that they aren't going to tell Jaffe's original story about where there is no more greek mythology. But i trust that the team will do a good job with the story.
But isn't that what the devs are saying, and not what Jaffe had in mind? I'm quite sure I've seen devs on God of War 3 quoted saying that it will explain why there are no more Greek myths.
I actually read a long time ago that explaining the sudden stop of greek myth's actually Jaffe's idea. We'll see though, with impressions coming out soon we should get more clarity on the subject. Somewhat.
