TheParanoidGamer: "Some brand-new details on singleplayer have been revealed."
"The team has assured that no way is the single player being dumb down. Single player has always been their “Bread and Butter” and adding multiplayer is something they excited about." Finally, I never understood those rants on how it would affect the single player mode anyway. Reminds me of the ranting that went on when Uncharted 2 was said to have multiplayer.
The game director did say that Single player "is our bread and butter” in his GamerLiveTV interview. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Who disagrees with a direct quote?...N4G at its best. Also I have to say the cutting of the Cyclops lip makes me cringe I can only imagin getting a paper cut on your bellend would be more painful and cringe worthy
Thanks for the video, after see all of it I'm intrigue by how the story turns out and the combat seems more brutal than ever,the way that cyclopes flesh wiggle like that was nasty and more than I expected.
Every developer says this. No one says "Yes it will be shit, please give us money anyway". We cannot make ANY judgements from this PR speak, only from the final product and ME3 sure as hell suffered for multiplayer so I'd keep a skeptical look until proven otherwise by results.
:( I was expecting to play as Kratos before the Ares deal
the only worry i had when they announced multiplayer was that singleplayer would suffer as a result, but it seems as if they're main focus is still singleplayer, which makes me a happy bunny. it seems that Sony are really going for it this year with BIG game announcements such as LBPKarting, Battle Royale and now this... couple this with a price drop and we could see the biggest Christmas sales Sony have had so far with the PS3. keep the PS4, i'm set for at least another two years with the PS3
I'm glad that there's no Co-op in single player, that would dumb it down.
Yeah Co-Op would just be stupid for the SP, so what? 1 person plays as the epic badass Kratos and the other person plays as his crappy robin-esk sidekick?? LOL
What people need to realise that it can go either way Uncharted 2 is a great example of multiplayer in a single player game going right 90% (Cosgroves "Statistics") of the time tacking multiplayer in a game which has always been about the single player fails...we all know that because we've seen it happen before. It dosen't matter who the studio is, their reputation or respect in the industry it CAN go wrong. God of War isn't any differen't I'm more p*ssed off that we are losing single player focused games. Whats next...Elder Scrolls <sigh> As for the "no way is the single player being dumb down" quote....come on guys, I could tell someone that I have my own private jet. You just don't know someones telling the truth untill you've seen it with your own eyes. Lets have an open mind about this not just pick a side
People can't stay open minded, especialy gamers They pick whether they like the "idea" of something not if it will actually work. It's the reason why hype plays a big part in a games review scores and even sales. Look at Elder Scrolls as you've mentioned, gamers like the idea of online being added but don't think about what would actual happen longterm if Bethesda did add the feature. I think people want the multiplayer to succeed, but because of not keeping an open mind about the feature is that when it comes out they will want it to work so much that if the worst happens and it's terriable then people will not want to admit it. As you can already see people are already picking sides wether or not this will work, and no matter what you say will change their opinion
And, Uncharted 2 MP was AWESOME
one of my most awaited games of 2013 hopefully they will have a kickass special edition online should be if nothing else add some replay value
good to hear the multiplayer wont effect on the singleplayer experience.
Kratos and his complexion is of interest to me. The idea that we will see a more human, less vengeance fueled psycho, side of Kratos also sounds intriguing.
God of war is the most overrated series. This is proof.Kratos is a lousy character who like's to yell and grunt all the time to seem hardcore and edgy for the kids.
how about you take down a titan and then you can come back and complain. Oh and saying "this is proof" without actually providing any doesn't make it true.
Don't feed the trolls...they'll only want to troll harder later. On topic, I can't wait to see more of the single player. I loved both PSP games so this is sure to be one of my most anticipated titles from the GOW series.
@Thraz Good job you dont have to play it then
I think youre confused with another "of War" series.
That other game has the same characteristics that your speaking of and I don't see you complaining.
-Single player is shorter. -Focus on a tacked on multiplayer mode. -Lie about multiplayer not effecting campaign.
Obvously, you know this as fact because had the chance to play this game in-deph before the rest of us?
On the live stream and interviews, he acknowledges everything that your thinking right now. They are aiming to make the single player better than 1-3. I hope so but just wait and see. E3 is a start.
lol i know your a troll but i guess you 4got Sony uses blu-ray disc.
That was impressive Im so hyped and excited ;) cant wait for e3 ( first sp gameplay, i guess )
Lol they said Kratos wouldnt be as buff. He has always been a beast and never a wimp
Not really sold on Multi-player, but will keep an open mind. I hope Ascension is able to channel a better pace than GOW 3. Don't get me wrong, GOW 3 was great, I just felt it peaked a little early.
Santa Monica are yet to let me down. Theyre right up there with Naughty Dog. Cant fucking wait for this! Kratos is brutal.
Ahhhhhh..... Sweet GOW goodness. I couldn't care less what anyone says. It will be good to pick up the old chain blades again and start slaying some monsters again. People get caught up0 in so many microscopic details that they forget to enjoy the game.It's Kratos and you kick God and monster @$$ epically. Who cares if he is not as buff or if the MP might suck or if you went back or where they started from. That is why people can't enjoy games anymore. You are to busy listening to how a shotgun sounds or seeing how yellow the sun is or how many times a character blinks his eyes and how many blades of grass you can see.
People really need to stop sh*tting on them for adding MP. Just because a few incompetent devs messed up their own games by adding MP, doesn't mean Santa Monica will. They're a great development team, and this game will be a fantastic SP experience as well as MP. Just another PS3 exclusive to chalk down on the list. This list keeps getting bigger and more awesome.
"The reason why this title isn’t called God of War 4 is because the title isn’t coming after 3" Thank god. I hate when games/movies etc. do that. for example, I would never called MGS3 MGS3. since it wasnt a continuation of MGS 1 and 2. MGS Snaker Eater makes more technical sense.
Halo 4 > God of War 4
Sure thing buddy what ever make you happy
I'm glad that this isn't the continue of the last game, that way people like me, who haven't played some of the previous games, could understand, more or less, the story line.
Loath the idea of prequels. Nothing exciting can happen because you KNOW how it all turns out "in the end". Prequels are a milkers dream when they've written the story to a wall. On the bright side though, at least this time Kratos won't "Ooopsie" and lose all his powers in the first 5 minutes. (Something Ezio is also rather guilty of)
What I'm interested is how can the prequel top the last game in the franchise considering he has defeated the most powerful foes he can fight. GOW:A must have some amazing set-pieces or unique boss fights that simply could not be possible in the production of GOW3 at that time.
