Will God of War 3 Impale Its Competition? Sarcastic Gamer Not So Sure Now…

Via Sarcastic Gamer: "God of War 3 is in trouble.

Six months ago, if you would have said that God of War 3 might not set new sales records in April, I probably would have taken your head off with a shotgun. Obviously, you were a replicant trying to blend in with human society, and your faulty preprogrammed knowledge of video games would have given you away.

Now? I'm not so sure."

I guess someone is not important enough to get a demo from Sony, lol

If IGN the biggest douche bags in the industry like the game then it has to be doing something right.

After reading the article, I can conclude that the author doesn't know what hes talking about. Hes not assuming that many gamers are WAITING for God of War 3 and by passing other action games.

"is there much that it really does different or over-the-top that these new IPs don’t give people?"

well personally ive never seen the brutality or level of detail in any game like GOW.

-Ripping a guys head off and seeing everything hanging out the neck was a pretty fresh experience to me :)

-riding the cyclops was pretty new and innovative was it not??

-zipper technology

and thats just from 20 minute e3 demo

and i have yet to actually see the new footage but it sounds like the world will be totally dynamic because you are gonna be one top of titans...the ground could become the ceiling and so on...sounds better than any of those games you mentioned!

sinncross3220d ago

Of course not...

GoW3 is going to their their heads off instead :D

"While God of War 3 will undoubtedly be a force to reckon with, based on the demo, is there much that it really does different or over-the-top that these new IPs don’t give people?"

Ummm.... yeah, God of War 3 will give people something that the competition doesn't provide, and it's Greek Mythology presented in one of the most Epic forms possible in gaming, and you can't get that anywhere else but God of War.

GOW3 will no doubt have greater visual fidelity than it's closest competition, and it'll be one hell of a technical showcase for an Action title... one minute you could be on the ground fighting and all Gaia has to do is move a body part and the ground could turn into the ceiling on the fly.

When you're on Gaia the entire Level itself is MOVING and can change in any instant... NO other Action title is doing anything that. While Dante, Bayonetta, and Darksiders are pretty solid titles, they'll all be surpassed in some way or form by GOW3.

No but seriously, what?
MW2 didn't bring anything new to the table, nor did Halo 3, yet it sold millions. The only reason why it wouldn't impale its competition is if Sony doesn't market the hell out of it with a good ad, and since their marketing team has FINALLY (since the PS3 slim) learned how to do the marketing, I think they will be just fine! They just have to put loads of money on the ads, similar to what Microsoft did with Halo 3!
Besides that, I don't know what GoW3 is bringing on the table that no other game has, but even if it doesn't bring anything new, advertising will help sell millions, even to people who don't know the game!

But I'm sure the Sony Santa Monica can pull off an amazing game. They did make 2 of the best ps2 titles. I am not doubting the quality of this game anymore after reading the impressions floating around the internet. When Gaia pictures were released I was really impressed. I have not read anything that positive about those 3 games. Well maybe Bayonetta, but that's not my kind of game.

But I certainly don't agree with the elitist idea people seem to have about GoW "crushing" the competition or acting as if every other game this year is going to be inferior.

I think GoW will be terrific, but so will a lot of other games. Bad Company 2, Mass Effect 2, Halo Reach, Gran Turismo, etc. There is a long list of equally great, if not better games this year.

I'm confident with GoW3 but I'm also confident with the year as a whole.

danthegardner3220d ago

Those will all be amazing games. I hate it when people put down games and praise another. When people praise a game like Halo or whatever to put down the ps3 I kind of think less of the game. I think Halo is a great series even though I don't have a 360. I just hate when they put down Gow 3 and say Reach will be better even though their quality will roughly be the same. Same goes for any games.

LordMarius3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

Darksiders, Bayonetta, Dante's Inferno(lol) all of these are just the appetizer while God of War 3 is the full course

Megaton3220d ago

I prefer the way Penny Arcade put it in one of their comics.

"Every other game is the joke. God of War is the punchline."

ClownBelt3220d ago

I don't see anything wrong about what the author's trying to say. I can actually understand where he's going. The fact that we got 3 games that will be all about button mashing and are similar to GoW3 before its release is kind of an overkill. If you're a person who plays all these games, then by the time GoW3 comes, you might be fed up.
