God of War III Trailer is Disgusting

Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "The recent God of War III trailer hit PSN a few days ago and it's absolutely disgusting. This isn't a bad thing, though. The series is built on brutal violence, gore and a couple a breasts here and there.

As somebody who has never played a god of war game i must say that trailer looked absolutely incredible

Chris3993562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

The God of War series is about EPIC, BRUTAL, conflict. This is kind of a pointless article.

Oh, and he compares it to Devil May Cry, which is a bit insulting. DMC is campy, over the top, almost 'Hong Kong' action. God of War is much more serious and melodramatic in scope and theme. It is in my opinion, a class above Devil May Cry.

He also undermines the appeal of Sony's IPs - Resistance, LBP (both of which have sold millions at this point, which is all sales-whores seem to care about, so their appeal should not really be in question). He then mentions that the Devil May Cry series has always been exclusive till this gen. This is factually incorrect. DMC 3 appeared on the PC.

Just another wanna be blog/ journalist writing half-baked articles with spurious headlines to rile up readers and score hits.

"Gaming journalism" is a terrible mess these days.

Bubbles for you mate.

As someone who hasn't ever played a God of War game, I wasn't very impressed with the trailer, but they'll hopefully improve, I heard they were still in pre-alpha stage so... yeah

And can people just read the article, it's like people are only reading the headline!

The article is basically saying GOW3 has the potential to be a really big killer App game for the PS3 .... a game that will make 360 owners want to buy a PS3 if that is a if enough compliment to the PS3/GOW3 then I dunno what it is..

The trailer was really well done and let me even more excited for thegame which sucks since we still dont know haven't gotten a release tim e-line

Killzone 2, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, Uncharted 1 and 2, MGS4.

All excellent reasons to buy a PS3 for.

But I'll say it and I'll say it again, the real system seller will be GT5. A $299 PS3 plus the release of that game will ignite PS3 sales more than KZ2, GoW3 etc.

People WILL buy a PS3 just for that game. Guaranteed.

MrWeymes3561d ago

Chris is right. Saying that the first three Devil May Cry games were exclusive to the Playstation 2 was wrong. They were console exclusives, but Devil May Cry 3 was also on the PC in the form of some special addition.

I'll make sure to address some 360 "exclusives" as console exclusives as well in the future. My apologies for the factual error. It looks bad on my part.

And it worked, also, lol at people who comment without reading the article, or even the introduction.

SL1M DADDY3561d ago

It's absolutely SICK! And... I love it. Cannot wait to see this title hit my PS3 in the near future.

GameGambits3561d ago

In terms of third person action games, God of War is at the top of the food chain. Devil May Cry is highly repetitive, dull stories, and still to this day filled with camera issues. Assassin's Creed is a good third person action game, the last gen of prince of persia's were good third person action games, and even Uncharted tops as a great third person action game.

God of War however still topples the competition in so many ways. Most of the games I mentioned suffer from either repetivity, poor story, or camera issues. God of War makes sure not to tread any of those problems and that's why gamers should be excited for this game. :)

Man this dude is seriously a p*ssy.
I mean God Of War 3 is.. awesome, performance wise...
Well you see, if they say you fight the whole effing time on the back of a titan.. you do, and he moves, so. He does.

MrWeymes3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

I don't have a comment section on my site, but I submit articles, reviews and previews here and various other places that allow comments.

Please read the first paragraph before getting too livid. I'm no p*ssy, although I enjoy it.

I bet mario could kill him with flower power.

LeonSKennedy4Life3561d ago

I don't know if you're serious about that though.

Usually, you hate any game on the PS3...no matter how good it is.

Says the guy who must still be mastarbating over Halo 3's Trailer

"Finish the Fight" - /face palm

MrWeymes3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

I'm pleading that people read the first two sentences before flying off the handle. That's easy, right?

Also, how is "Read the full article to see what The Nightly Gamer thought of the most recent God of War III trailer and the God of War series in general." bad editing? I'm not being rude. Please explain how it breaks any rules on N4G.

yanikins1113562d ago

Dude, you cant use an inflammatory title to get hits then complain when people only read the inflammatory title and say "F*** this guy".

The ps3 fanboys in particular are over that stuff...

Druids sword buddy....

MrWeymes3562d ago (Edited 3562d ago )

Well put, Yanikins. I just feel that it's more of an intelligent title than "God of War III Trailer Sucks." That wouldn't make any sense, but the title that I used makes perfect sense.

The content of the game is disgusting, but it doesn't have to be taken in a negative manner. Beasts are mauled and ripped apart and gore is present throughout the entire trailer. Disgusting is an appropriate word. I think the trailer looks great personally, and I convey that within the first two sentences and throughout the entirety of the article.

yanikins1113561d ago

you say disgusting I say wicked :D

Its all about priorities. Google "D.I.M.E Gaza" and read up on Israels new weapons. I find that disgusting. Not a computer game based on greek mythology....

MrWeymes3561d ago

Can we agree on wickedly gruesome? Perhaps gruesome would have been better than disgusting when it comes to my title.

Honestly, I don't want this negative attention. I just thought the title was eye catching, but I figured people would read two sentences. Anyway, I'm off to write a review. I promise that there will be no misleading titles this time. lol

GarandShooter3561d ago

MrWeymes, do you even know the definition of disgust? Let me help you out.

From Dictionary.com:
dis⋅gust   /dɪsˈgʌst, dɪˈskʌst/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [dis-guhst, di-skuhst] Show IPA Pronunciation

–verb (used with object) 1. to cause loathing or nausea in.
2. to offend the good taste, moral sense, etc., of; cause extreme dislike or revulsion in: Your vulgar remarks disgust me.
–noun 3. a strong distaste; nausea; loathing.
4. repugnance caused by something offensive; strong aversion: He left the room in disgust.

Really difficult to see how people got the idea this was negative, isn't it? Remember, there's a ton of jackasses out there who use negativity and controversy to generate hits, so people refuse to read the whole article and give the site hits. If you wish to not be seen as one of these jackasses, don't dress in their clothes.

SAiOSiN3561d ago (Edited 3561d ago )

u made me lol. bubbles.
i mean just picture it....

MrWeymes3560d ago

Yeah, you're right. I'd rather get hits because my article is relevant. I don't want to just p*ss people off.

Next time.
