God of War 4 leaked via resume

SystemLink: "If there is one thing that the gaming world is currently lacking, it’s Ancient Greek Gods, gratuitous violence, and a certain Spartan warrior named Kratos. However, SystemLink has reason to believe that might be about to change." (God of War 4, PS3)

Kratos is getting stale, weve already seen him twice this year...

Yeah, it's milking, but you could have stated your opinion about that without the dripping sarcasm.

how many halo games have been released on the 360

seems like alot since its on 4 but the 1st two were on the ps2 and the 2nd one came out when the ps3 launch.

It's probably definately true. I saw a behind the scenes vid of the development for GOW3 and I could see them using Autodesk Maya on some of the monitors. I'm currently learning Maya 2011 through a college character develpoment course. Hopefull one day i'll be as good as some of those guys.

Well as much as I want this to happen, i'm not holding my breath for it just yet. This really doesn't mean a whole lot, and I will wait for hard evidence and a proper reveal. I have a minor question for those with a PSP though. How are the two games on PSP? Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta? They look fantastic to me, I've just never got the chance to play them.
malamdra  +   1398d ago

FinalSpartan  +   1398d ago
no they are good. Ghost of Sparta was great! more back story with his brother and that. Ending battle was great. I enjoyed Ghost of Sparta more then Chains of olympus. That one was abit boring. But Ghost Of Sparta was cool.

GOW III was a wicked game! One of my favourites.

mastiffchild  +   1398d ago
The two GOW PSP entries are amazing to my mind. To pull off the epic scale synonymous with GOW1 and 2 you could expect PS3 and GOW3 to be stunning(which it indeed remains to this day-fantastic game)but to do it twice on the small screen of the PSP is little short of magical.

The gaps filled in Kratos' backstory are reason enough for any series fan to pick the two games up but, above that, they stand on the own merits as great, genuinely classy games. That the patented gameplay translates to PSP so well is another boon and they're must plays in the PSP library.

So, for me as a series fan, they stand right up to the incredible home console, main games and stand alongside the other greatest PSP games too. Fantastic stuff.
moparful99  +   1398d ago
@biggcman I bought the ghost of sparta special edition psp and I love it.. I started played through ghost of sparta and beat it in a little over a day then I played chains of olympus as it was a free DL with the bundle and I beat it that day... Then I turned around and replaed ghost of sparta.. Man ready at dawn did such a great job on both games.. Best psp titles hands down... Get them now!!

God of War is not milked. The GoW series has never had DLC, Only top notch sequels and prequels. You don't have to buy it but I know me and the rest of the hardcore GoW fans will.
moparful99  +   1398d ago
Its not milking when every single game is a significant step forward over the previous.. Not very many IP's can claim that over the span of 5 games... GoW remains the best examples of hack n slash pltforming done right...

ChristianGamer  +   1398d ago
Lol talk about milking that cow. This gen we've had Gow 1&2 HD, GoW 3, Ghost of Sparta and Chains of Olympus. Now this will make it 5 games this gen.
When Halo does it its milking. But when Gow is concerned it is the awesomest.
lee_ten  +   1398d ago
first of all, you can't compare psp, ps2 and ps3 games and assume it's milking. second of all, you need to stop trolling.
Stewie2k8  +   1398d ago
werent 2 of them on psp? so people on psp can experience GOW. :) and GOW1&2 are HD remakes for the big fans of the game, why do they count as milking?
Please god cure this man from his trolling! oh wait...
mastiffchild  +   1398d ago
And the HD remakes made sense(for once alongside the Ico/SoTC remakes)because the originals came late in PS2's lifetime and GOW1 was heavily pirated while PS3 was upon us when GOW2 came about meaning many missed out on one of Sony's best games.

Milking is unfair with just one PS3 game since launch and two PSP in, what, 6 years of the handheld's life? This isn't like GH/COD with a game out every year on every platform and DLC besides or expansions dressed up as full games. Milking is a hard thing to pin on many series to be honest and with GOW's odd late arrival on PS2 leaving it underselling it's not fair to accuse S<M's best of it at all.
JUDALATION  +   1398d ago
Gow needs an Online component like Diablo to keep people playing the game...With GOW 3 people returned the game after a few playthroughs and other bought it used, shashing SM sales... iM SURE THEY CAN DO WAY BETTER THAN Dead space 2... I would like something fun like zombie mode in blackops... and if you dont like it... DONT PLAY IT!

Well I can certainly see why you haven't had time to finish them. I myself don't get much time to stare at the T.V. since I started College.

Kingdom Come  +   1398d ago
Whilst I don't exactly know where they'll go with God of War IV, I quite like the Secrecy lingering after the conclusion of the third title. It allowed for fans to sculpt their own opinion on Kratos' fate. And whilst I would prefer that question to remain unanswered, allowing us to maintain that sense of choice (I decided that now he had accomplished his goal he was finally capable of ending his own life in the means he set out to do in the begining of the original God of War, with all his remaining strength, he pulled himself to the cliff edge and threw himself off, in fear that if he did not do so, something would prevent his death and prolong his wait to be with his loved ones). God of War is nothing without Kratos. I love the franchise and I hope that if this proves true, that they continue his story with care and find some means of giving the character purpose now that Zeus is defeated. Bring it on.
