i like what I am seeing here... Quote: "we want this to be the game that shows people what the PS3 can do", I say, we already know, let just get to doin' it!!! AhhAhhaha!
that's some bold statement.
Killzone 2 to show what the PS3 was capable of... then came the Heavy Rain trailer which wowed many... people were still skeptical. After that came Uncharted 2 that really wowed people asking if it could get any better... Now comes God of War III to up the ante even more. What will be next? I am sure these developers will have even more tricks up their sleeves...
the screen with that big bastard looks good
We haven't seen anything from this title that has upped the ante in any way shape or form. So far they've shown nothing better looking than what we've seen from Uncharted 2, and certainly not even close to Killzone 2. We'll just have to wait, and see if what Jaffe said was true. There is still quite some time till it's gone gold so be patient before making those bold claims.
"Kratos' most brutal and exciting new maneuver is the ability to control certain monsters." Score. "Unlike games like Zelda and Metroid, God of War III lets players retain many abilties acquired in the previous installments." Double Score!
Maybe one of you could send me some of that Dave Jaffe happy juice you've been sippin' on so I can see what you see. From what we the public have seen so far it looks like current gen title. Nothing more, nothing less.
jonas... I'll go look for the "Jaffe" Juice but do me a favor and throw out the "Blind gamer" juice first.... it looks awesome. Especially for being over a year off.
CORRECTION First we had Ratchet and Clank FToD to show amazing cinimatic graphics Then we had uncharted to show amazing graphics Then MGS4 which is grapically/technically the best game out right NOW! Soon we will have KZ2 (we know what we are getting) Then we will have Uncharted 2 and Ratchet and Clank 2 and Heavy Rain. WOOT WOOT!
Did you see those bosses!! My anticipation is growing for this game.
Thank You. Waiting until friday sucks. The game looks gorgeous already and if I remember correctly it is rumored they already have the foundation for the entire game complete, and their just taking the Killzone 2 route and polishing the game over and over and over again. There's no release date, but the earilest we should expect is late September - Early March (the latter more likely). And if it does come out in March 2010 that means they would have had an entire year to make this game flawless. I think God of War 3 is going to set the tone for 2010 like Killzone 2 did for 2009 (even though I hope it comes out this year). Great screens just wish they were bigger.
360 fanbooys need to calm down..the game will look freaken amazing when it comes out..I cant wait for this gaame lets see how far they can push the PS3 hardware..
are you sure this was just a preview...that was a lot of information... I hope this game does not cast a shaddow on the other exclusive hits that are coming out in the future... so far so good...
I really don't see anything that wows me. I still can't wait to play this game though. Maybe the big advancement isn't in the visuals but the overall gameplay, battles, and Epicness.
Boo "Bandwidth Exceeded!" I cant see the pictures...
Click the link above the "Bandwidth Exceeded" and you can see the images.
Damnnn 50+ enemies on screen, gonna get some crazy combos going
Ya, a current gen "PS3" title.
OMG did u see how huge that Titan was in the 1st pic..is that Cronos ? did he escape from hell and is now back to seek revenge on Olympus ? wow the Titans Vs the Gods Round 2...SICK..!! some of the graphics look great but the scans are bad quality but I have no doubt SM studios will make all our jaws drop when this game hits...
That one picture with the Kratos close up already looks better than Uncharted. Look at all the details in his stomach and face. Also, the pics with the combat stuff have amazing environments. Is that Cronos in that one pic?
The scans are horrible quality. I can't wait to see a video of in game just to see what's going on.
What's up with the people disagreeing with me? I think ya might be confusing art direction with graphics because I don't know how someone can say these don't look good. Those comparing the games' graphics with GOW 1 and 2.... art direction /= graphics.
He was talking about the quality of the scans not the actual screenshots.
Bah... I'll destroy my eyes trying to read those :( Images look great though.
OMG OMG OMG *shakes hands like a little girl* I can't wait to rip guts and take names.
i HAVE the mag and god of war 3 graphics are very very disspointing assasin creed has better graphics
Mesh you need god in your life for the bitterness. Kratos is that god and GoW 3 will rock the ps3. Cant wait for this hit title.
I don't know those scans are bad quality but there is nothing there that makes you go WOW..... i hope somehow they improve visuals...not impressed by them. There is something written about his bro, that interest me.
Might sound like an excuse, but... I dont think GOW will be traditionally jaw dropping in screens. I think it's needs to be in motion so you can really gauge the amount of on-screen content. I'm holding judgement until I see some real gameplay, I think it's going to be crazy!
I agree it's nothing compared to Too human =P Seriously though. GOW has always been about Scale and environments. Story is top notch too. I am sure the visuals will get better... We really have not seen much though... is it concept? Beta? prerend? I trust Jaffe and others not to lie when they say "ZOMG Amazing looking game" they are not full of it like maybe a rep from the game might be... Off Topic: Fishy did you ever get your PC up to date bro?
No. The 'in-game' footage looked mediocre, too. + When I say that, I genuinely mean mediocre. God of War with Uncharted style graphics would be off the chain.
but then it would steal all the fps from it. Not to mention the screen tearing in Uncharted engine. God of War has to be made using somewhat not-so-great-looking engine to have the gore and action intact.
Why does everyone say there is screen tearing in Uncharted? I've recently played that game, a lot. Platnumed it for a friend. I have yet to notice this "gawd awful screen tearing." I played it back when it first launched too. All I noticed was the texture popping.
This is utterly ridiculous you people are complaining about the graphics of a game, that has NO specific release date, and we should all be pretty sure the game isn't coming out until November - March 2010. The game looks good enough already and it has at least 8 months of development time left. We all know the game is going to look amazing, play amazing, and be up for multiple GOTY awards like every other GOW so stop complaining. @ above. There is screen tearing in Uncharted usually it's something very minor like a plant disappears, or textures don't instantly pop-up. The worst case I've had was jumping into a random chapter, and I could see the grey foundation of the game, but only for a split second, and everything loaded right up. Again the screen tearing is nothing that will ruin the experience, because you don't notice it unless you go looking for it, or it affects something close to you on screen. By the way has a handheld game ever won a GOTY award?
You just described texture popping. Not screen tearing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I must have had a brain fart, I was completely thinking the wrong thing.
i cant read the text.
It looks great and it's a year away. The environment look great, but I think the monsters could use a little work. Especially when compared to the environments.
cause here in germany there is no Game Informer mag
this game is going to be incredible to the point of bringing many new fans to the series.
I want to see the 'jaffe-video' instead.
Though there are a few new ones. I have the mag and I will tell you they look pretty good. In particular, the lighting is amazing, but I'm not surprised considering I heard they are using the same tech that GG uses in Killzone 2. I CANNOT friggin' wait for this game.
Either the scans are bad or it looks like ps2.
Bad scans. If you read the mag, the pics are of higher quality than this
I'd suggest not even wasting your time trying to explain as your words are lost on him. PP stands for Peon Perplexed after all.
@ killzone2flop You really are a pathetic soul. Now you've even stooped to the level of copying and posting someone else's comments. What you can't think for yourself? lol
I can see it now, your new BS name will be Gow3Flop. You've become quite comical now...
or maybe seeing all those red rings have damaged your vision you ignorant slu+
name calling that's so low, killzone2flop. Don't cry. *Runs to get bucket full of xbot tears* lol
can you post the pics somewhere, i cant view them for some reason. email them to [email protected]
you can't read the text.. so don't worry... just go to the other GOW3 thread in N4G.. some one has link to the same scans there. sorry.. i can't paste links because am using PS3 browser.
Keep the Quality 'AAA' games coming SONY!!! ;-P
Could be the first visually disappointing flagship title from Sony. It looks fine, but it doesn't do anything to impress. It looks like a mildly updated version of the PS2 games. 20000 polygons on Kratos isn't as much as it sounds like. 4x the texture resolution of the second game? 4x resolution of 64x64 textures is only 128x128, unless they're dumbing it down to mean 256x256 (very incorrect). Even then, that's still really low for next-gen games. Gears of War (the first one) uses 2048x2048x4 for a body and 1024x1024x4 for a head, for each character. I believe the weapon resolution is the same as the head. I know graphics aren't everything, but there was certainly a visual appeal with the first two that etched them firmly in many gamers' minds. The gameplay is good but it never approaches the depth of Ninja Gaiden or even DMC3/4. Not enough details to really know anything concrete about it's development progress or if the game will really change in any important manner before release, so I'll just have to hold out with cautious optimism and slight disappointment at present. (for the record, I loved the first two games, only bested by SOTC and FFXII as my favourite PS2 games!)
I wouldn't worry, the game isn't going to be out for, what everyone is guessing, another year. Look how far Killzone 2 came once the game was finished and they started adding the final polish. And 20,000 polygons is more than enough, Old Snake in MGS4 only used 10,000 and Marcus Fenix was about 15,000. It's all how you use the polygons. GoW3 will look epic but play even better, so I wouldn't worry. Jaffe was impressed, the guy from 1Up was impressed, so they must have seen something good.
are the only games coming out that I have NO doubt in my mind will be awesome. I don't think I would be too concerned yet. But I say keep the criticism coming. We all saw what it did for Gorilla and Killzone 2. The more criticism they got the more motivated they got, and that one of the reasons Killzone 2 looks so freakin good.
I am not a big hack and slash fan, whats the deal with GOW, I loved Zelda Ocarina of time, is it that type of game only with a adult theme? I like games that immerse me and create a believable world, when I checked out the pic with the big dude in the distance towering over the building I liked the look of it.
I imagine you would. The fighting system isn't quite the same at all, it's much deeper in GOW. Character upgrading/customization is far more in-depth in GOW as opposed to Zelda. However, GOW is not really as "open-world" as Zelda, and features no towns or economy systems, and also no dialogue pieces/trees with benign NPCs. The game is far shorter as well. As well as lacking towns, dungeons are also non-existent, the game merely paces itself between action scenes and puzzle sequences (with some platforming in between). Almost like a constant "dungeon" if you will. Zelda's story is nice, I prefer the more adult-themed and vengeance fuelled story of the first two GOW games.
I don't know anyone who has actually not liked the games. A few fan boys will say it was lame but really I am looking forward to thei game more then I did Donkey Kong Country, Zelda OOT or almost any other game i can think of. It's original, Fast paced, The draw distances and scale are amazing, Atmosphere is top notch.... Really I have not known anyone who didn't like the game but to each his own...
because of the amount of moves that you can perform....as well as the balance between action, puzzles, and bigger fight scenes....it really does not feel like that heavey of a hack and slash game....compared to others in the genre. I bought both titles and played them for days on end until I completed then..when traditionally I have to take time off from hack and slash games. And to top it off....about a month ago, my wife told me that she liked watching me play GOD series....which means, not even playing, she enjoyed this "hack and slash" game...when usually she gets bored with stuff. Ohh, also the story line distracts you from feeling like its just a hack and slash.
The only thing excite me most is the fact that bots doesn't get a chance to play this awesome game.... Kratos FTW of bots.....? Hahahahahahahaha, i've gone mad.....!!!!!!!!!!
just to let you all know i have been informed that the screens you are looking at right now are far from the beta so don't expect the graphics to be like this its much better and im sure kratos will use more than 20,000 polygons.
it's also likely a bulk of the development time is spent on making the environment as rich and dynamic as possible - character models are easy in comparison.
This game is a must buy. Ill be picking it up day 1.
you are so kidding right ? alot of great games are out right now .
the trailer didnt impress me, nor have these scans, they are good but nothing jaw droping like the the first 2 games did on my ps2, hopefully its just early builds and there is better
To those who are saying these aren't representative of in-game graphics at all, then why would they give out exclusives to show images and footage of this game in a state where the visuals aren't what they will look like? I'm a fan of Kratos and I will pick the game up, but the hype for this game in terms of graphics is stupid. Heavenly Sword screens looked better, and that game is gorgeous. If they deliver the same visuals with GoW gameplay, I think people will be happy enough. But don't expect KillZone 2 visuals with this title
What happened with the ''working with Guerilla Games'' thing? The hilarious part is that before anyone even saw one ingame photo of GOWIII the PS3queers were hyping this as the best looking game EVAH:\ ''KZ2??? DOHOHOHOHO, YOU HAVE SEEN NUTHING YET HUR HUR'' Now even Too Human looks better. Well at least the gameplay should be awsome. But its on ps3 so you never know.
Sounds like somebody ran out of tissues, hahahahahahaha!
Then go buy them. I understand that when a painting turns out looking like..........well that, kinda ps2HDish, there's a lot of bitter disappointment flowing around the people who already bought a frame (ps3) for it. But theres always enough tissues in stores to soak up the rivers of your bitter tears.
