Sony Corp. this week demonstrated the title God of War III for the Playstation 3 at the E3 convention in Los Angeles. In the new video, Kratos beats a solider named Helios and takes his head as a souvenir.
Oh my god.. (i mean Kratos) thats some nasty sh1t!!
That was some serious ownage. I think i'll go watch that again....
if this was any other game character doing this i would say it looks so wrong. but with KRATOS doing this all i can say is IT LOOKS SO RIGHT !
cool effect is the blood splatter on Kratos
It would be cool if we are able to rip of the head of a specific 'Spartan'...
"Soldier named Helios"? Helios is the Sun God isn't he? :P
IMO GOW3 was game of show. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in the above comment do not necessarily reflect those of others. Edit: @above you are correct
Yes he is the God of Sun in the Greek Mythology. Well God Of War teaches everyone of us about the greek mythology, which is indeed a real cool one, and then i look at such people who call Helios a mere soldier, im like... What is wrong with them!?
but that make me kinda sick inside! I'm getting worried for the rating of this game later! but I think that kind of violence is unnecessary and should not be shown in-game. if it's a monster or demon, I think I'm ok with it but Helios is a god in full "human form" making that scene kinda creepy! so...I don't think that this will not end pretty with you know...rating board, parents...
look at the agony on helios face i LOVE It
I meant I don't think that this will end pretty
Well BAM! There it is! *watch this for reference* http://www.youtube.com/watc...
that footage is not going to go well with hilary clinton and the news media.
@Bubble buddy Not exactly. The widely know greek God of Sun is Apollo, his a son of Zeus and Leto and part of the Twelve Olympians. Also considered also god light, truth, prophecy, archery, medicine and healing, music, poetry and arts. Usually depicted as a "young adult" male, the greek ideal of male beauty. Helios is a titan deity related to the Sun.It was considered a son of titans Hyperion and Theia. Usually depicted as all grow up male with a light aureole. Greeks didn't worship titans as much as gods, althrough titans are relatives of gods (Kronos), titans and their child are usually more related to natural phenomena. Helios literally means Sun in greek. The guy riding the chariot of the sun was Helios, not Apollo. The distortions and misconceptions come from hellenistic period, before that, by Homero, Apollo wasn't related with sun, more with the bow (the legendary golden bow, that was actually made of silver in the poetry). The misconception is such that by the time Romans were absorbing the greek deities (and keep in mind the Roman "religion" was totally flexible, with a lot of "continuity errors"), apollo didn't had a equivalent. It was later cited in some poems as Phoebus. The Roman Sun god was Sol, or Sol Invictus, which corresponds to Helios, but with a lot of Apollo features from Hellenistic period. According to wikipedia GOW2 page, they say the man in armor at ending with Zeus is Helios (also there Poseidon, Hades and Hermes). This is a little fail in the story. Not really their fault, Helios wouldn't be in the Olympus, but putting Apollo there won't fulfill the expectation of haviing a "Disney god of sun" while according to the actual Greek Mythology. They had to choose between using the wrong name or a pretty lame character (and redundant - Kratos already had a godly bow). Be it Apollo or Helios, this won't be your usual enemy in GOW3 (ESRB would probably step up with continuous crazy decapitations like that), the head itself is obviously a powerup after you take it. But I have a gut feeling you won't be seeing this quality of decapitation only in this battle. Man, this game will blow my mind.
Very nice!!!!! That's what I like to see baby!!!! Ouch!!!!!!!!
That was so awesome.
Pretty sure Helios is the sun god, that why his head glows after he's dead
I almost laughed out big time whenhe called him a soldier, seriously maybe read into a little mythology, I thought everyone had to in school any way.
@above yeah, i facepalmed too, when I read that the author called him a soldier... bubbles
Helios is the sun god,rides a chariot of fire fires supernova's out of his arse etc etc.
o...m...g... that was........ so F'ing AWESOME! ahh! that was insane! i just jizzed. Can't wait to finish the fight (the real fight) BAM!
*Jumps to a bunker to take cover*
>.> *pokes you* *walks away*
Wouldn't be as exciting as you can't see any expression on Master Chief.
that one hell of a head ache
Wins teh internets
david was right , its like a painting comes to life, btw KRATOS FCKIN OWNS
Kratos bathes in blood the cyclops eye thing was also so freaking awesome.
Yea I gotta agree, lol they even took it so far to zoom in to show the eye get slowly ripped out and added sound effects to improve it that much more
That was freaking awesome when I saw that. OMG, idek if I can make it to March 2010 when this comes out.
Ahhhhh! its so awsome!! I want it i want it!
"Gore like no other"
Did you play God of War before?
I like that it's catchy Bubbles for you, also your pic is awesome ... still wating for a Legend of Dragoon 2 <-- one of the best Rpg's I have played imo Edit: Agreed Kain & lordv8der
agreed! an incredibly underrated ps1 game.
I like the GORE in that Game. THERE IS ONLY ONE VENGEFUL WARRIOR AND THAT IS KRATOS
God 1 and 2 have a lot of gore but they are not as explicit as the one here.
I wish i can do this to the xbots.......
Lol at your pic, and comment bubbles for you
very hard to do so since most of them look like boomer.
lol dang Obama that made my day bubbles for you
bubble back :)
i bet kratos dies at the end of this game.
na i bet u die in the end :P lol
I bet he becomes president of the United States and brings peace to the world.
so.. are u meaning that... in the end of the game the ashes removes from his body and hes... Obama!?!?
No way. I mean he takes over, no voting, and no one's gonna oppose him. Trust me Kratos gets things done.
and with that being said...helios, you got owned!
Yea I also liked how the guards of Zeus tried to defend Helios 300 style bundled together with spears/swords and sheilds
yeah, that plan worked well.
That was awesome!!
ARgh! That was brutal.. To the point I think that might be a bit much. Look at the way the skin and muscles flex.. amazing! I hope other dev's are watching what they are up against!
That is a little much. Maybe I'm just old, but it makes Mortal Kombat look like a game for babies.
[email protected]! Looks like Mortal Kombat has some competition in the brutality department.
I think Mortal Kombat has some catching up to do sounds about right
ehhh duplicate story, we seen a HD video, and a longer video of this.
That's painful. The way its animated, its frighteningly realistic. I just wish this one is more bloodier than before. I like how Kratos stays bloody after a while, just make it polished like in Uncharted. I absolutely love the way water is handled in Uncharted, use the same mechanics in GOW for blood and water, that would be awesome. Plus, it would be neat when blood spills on the ground, to let it stay that way.
kratos shows no mercy.
If they don't watch it, this game will be banned in some countries and banned from Walmart. I actually think they might have crossed the line where it might hurt sales if some places choose not to carry it. That's amazing but brutal.
i thought gow 2 was as brutal as we would get i was proven wrong again. Seriously in 2 when you just. Video says it all the master of brutality serious smashing peoples head with a door
Damn the skin tearing looks so good it's almost creepy.
What happens if you don't rip his head of? will there be a bossfight? :D
That is probably at the end of fighting him.
Yeah, I figured that. But still, I'm interested to see what happens if you just drop the controller at that QTE.
didn't they say there'll be a demo for this game on PSN!?? Because I see no Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 demo. This is all farked up man! seriously!
Flawless Victory, Fatality.
Headshot? Pfft. Kratos just headrips....off.
