Spike VGA World Premier Trailer HD
this is gonna be dope
The gauntlets at 0:20!!!! This game is gonna be the shiz-NITE!
The trailer is on the Playstation Store if anyone didn't know yet. It looks way better than watching it on the awards show
you beat to me it..and it's in 1080p ...XD ne ways This game will just be amazing , loving the new camera style and I can't even imagine how amazing this game is gonna look one year from now
One of the best things about GoW has always been its cinematic camera styles during gameplay and QTE sequences, I don't think I've ever had a problem with the camera on that game. God of War 2 was unbelievable and the only thing I can really see them improving on is making it graphically badass, every other element has already been nailed in the previous games.
and before I get flamed, for the record I loved God of War 1 & 2 on the PS2. The game will be excellent if the past games are to go for, but graphically...not spectacular. It looks very pretty, but after Sony pushing out that CGI teaser trailer a few months back, I thought that was an indication of what to except graphically, like the Killzone 2 trailer was to the actual game, which was very close. This though just looks like a prettier version of the 'Heavenly Sword' engine. Again, I'm sure they are still working on it, and it will be a AAA title when it arrives and I will be buying it, but all in all, I was slightly disappointed with the outcome.
I think it looks really awesome.
Chills down my spine!
In HD it doesn't impress me it's what I pretty much expected. I know people are excited though.
what he saw was more jaw dropping than this, i think this is just a teaser on what we will get! i expect GOW3 will push the ps3 to a new limits higher than KZ2!!
come on fellas. look at this gif very closely.. (thank you 40cal) http://i38.tinypic.com/r2q8... for what it is...a teaser and very early in its stage. they could realease it how it looks now and it'll still look immpressive. if anyone has played GOW games, they'll know those 'sequences' are ingame graphics... but i wouldn't blame anyone to think its cgi ;) that was beautiful
Everything looks good(like cgi), it just needs some texture work which I'm sure will come in the later stages. The thing people need to understand is that any game can do Killzone 2 graphics with one guy on the screen, stagnant backgrounds and 720p, in this late stage of the gen it's all about lighting, particle effects, and # of moving objects on screen while pushing great graphics.
unbelievable, LOVE the new camera style and the new combat and blood like you can fricken do wall runs and subsequent combos (evidenced by the blue at the beginning of the run that shows the player they've pulled off the move) UNBELIEVABLE! 2009 is the YEAR FOR GAMERS! no doubt!
i actually think the whole scene takes place upon a titan, because during the fight with the cycloptic fellow everything was on it's side with rocks falling.
Prepare yourselves for Kratos, the God of War that will end all wars, even the console wars.
God of War will be amazing, but I doubt this will end any wars.... I don't wanna ruin your dreams, but are you aware that the best selling God of War game on PS2 didn't even sell as much as MGS4, even though the install base was like 5 times bigger ? I have no doubt this third installment could be the biggest seller in the series, but really, I don't see this as a game that will really hurt the competition more than a few weeks.
I like games.
i like $ex
I like both
at the same time
I like sex in games so i hope Kratos will find some other cooperative women in God Of War 3.
I like turtles.
Hooray for Youtube finally being in HD! http://www.youtube.com/watc... And for God of War... this is gonna be sick.
Sorry mate, this is not HD. The one on PlayStation Store is HD. You tube is still very low res.
It's in 720p. That is HD.
It's pretty good, the 640XXXXX resolution looked terrible, this looks miles better but I'm still doubtful, needs more presentation but I know it will end up being a very clean final polish.
trailer is in 1080p on playstation store guys
this was a lot more impressive in hd than the crappy def trailers people were posting earlier.
I liked the previous God of war games but to say this will end the console wars is crazy. GOW isnt a system seller the previous ones only sold a few million on a huge install base and this hardly screams next gen judging by the trailer. To be honest it doesn't look nowhere near what i expected. Saying that the trailer was short and its gameplay that matters to which im sure it will deliver. Like i said im looking forward to it though.. need to see more.
Oh man GOW and Uncharted 2 wow some great gaming diversity awaits. IMO It starts with Killzone 2 then off to the rest of beastly Sony line up.
Nothing too impressing graphically shown so far, but I'm more interested in the new camera system, which would be a major upgrade from the others imo. First day rental for sure.
@ your denial. This looks like one of the best console games ever.
"Nothing too impressing graphically" Yeah people expect individual hair follicles and beads of sweat these days. (/sarcasm off)
Why would I be in denial? There isn't anything graphically stunning shown here, and it looks like an action game, which the button masher genre isn't quite my cup of tea. Certainly not up to par with Killzone 2 graphics from what we've seen so far. That's just the way it is.
@YonasJonas What stone have you been living under? Did you expect it to be a shooter?
I think people were abit blinded by their expectations. This does infact look very very good. And it looks so smooth aswell, animations are top notch. And it looks like its running in 1080p, since the trailer on PSN is in 1080p. Now that is quite impressive. I bet once we see a scene with abit more color in it then this one, then everyone will be like OMG the graphics!
Actually I pre ordered the first GoW before you most likely even heard of it. The action genre has become stale now as it hasn't had anything revolutionary since the very first Devil May Cry imo, which is why I'm only renting it. Regardless I think this game will be a really good action title, but just not anything groundbreaking. For one most camera systems in this titles is horrendous, and if they fix that problem then they will be at least one huge step ahead of the bunch. Me being unimpressed was based solely on a visual standpoint as Jaffe built it up to be the next best thing. I know it still might have some tricks up it sleeve as it's still has a while to go, and this is supposedly not the video Jaffe saw anyhow, but right now I'm only judging the short teaser that was given to us, and that's why I said, "from what we've seen so far."
This little short trailer impress me. It just keep getting better.
Now THAT is better :D
Getting this Charlie? I only ask as I usually only see you post in PC threads.
Of course I do I have all the freaking 3 previous games :D
Ah nice, yeah me to, COO (PSP) was probably my favourite. Didn't know you were a console gamer bro. Hope you enjoy the new one :)
You haven't checked my N4G profile haven't you :P
already damn it, give it to me now....!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Doesn't look that great graphically.A bit of a disappointment i will mark the game down as a flop in my book.
Too Human ? Ninja Gaiden 2 ? Left 4 Dead ? Fable 2 ? this video is showing an early version of the game and it still looks better then most of the 360 exclusive.
I want something new no more stupid sequels : (
yeah its really feels like its "painting come to life" -___- ...
Jaffe states that the Spike footage WASN'T what he was talking about.
must sayits disappointing visually. Gameplay looks great though. however its not all gloom , it corroborates what David Jaffe and Silogon have said so teh current build could be way better than this. I would expect so as the lighting here is quite dull.
Are you joking? Look again at the lighting when the lightning is overhead crackling, the lighting is so awesome, it looks very realistic
Look at heavy rain or killzone 2 . You will see deep shadows, ambient occlusion, objects/ characters are grounded, image has depth. Ican definitely say that this does not really impress me visually. I am waiting for what they hinted at though, I believe we are just seeing a quick sort of warm up of GOW...so wait and see.
Ok I have ALWAYS been the first one to bash some Sony games when they didn't look up to par ala Resistance etc. I hold a high standard for the PS3 and I expect really good looking games. The first time I watched this online I wanted to scream I thought it looked like a PS2 game. I than watched the HD feed on my TV and was more impressed, than I watched this, than I watched the 1080P feed on my TV from PSN. All I have to say is ok WOW, MF'ing WOW. This will get a lot of disagrees, but this game has the Halo 3 effect. Look from afar and it's simply rather "meh" But if you look up close the details and the intricacies are truly amazing. Look at this trailer and slowly move the slider across the screen and look at ever scene closely. Look at the ground, the detail in plants and trees. Notice in the first part the amount of guys in the background? and how HUGE and far the draw distance is? Now the second part, look at the sky, the lightning crackling, the ground lighting up from it, the lighting, my god that lighting is phenomonal! The last scene (I counted) is roughly 30 guys attacking at once. This game looks damn good if you look at it from a technical standpoint and I say this from the FIRST trailer ever shown so we don't know how truly awesome it could look in better trailers. Disagree all you want about the Halo 3 effect comment, but it's the same thing, they seem to be going the route of gameplay over graphics, larger levels, more detail, more enemies, more going stuff going on on screen etc...if this is what God Of War III looks like color me impressed and I can't wait til 2009!!!!
the VGA may have disappointed a lot of fans, but watching the PSN version brings Kratos justice.
just to make sure il post this in the open zone. This game graphically looks like its on the same level as Gears of war2, Uncharted, Killzone and Fable2. Which is a good thing.
except that GEARS 2 and Fable 2 isn't on the same level graphically as Uncharted and KZ2...the latter 2 are way more impressive..XD Edit: dude I own a HDTV and i've played all 4 f those games b4.. Fable 2 isn't up there with the best graphical games srry dude Gears 2 looks really good but it's nuttin spectacular to brag about most of what was seen in Gears 2 was already there from 2006 , consider Gears 2 as Gears 1 with a better paint job Uncharted is is a graphical Beast I played KZ2 Beta and the MP graphics alone look better than Gears 2 Campaign graphics..
obviously never played them on a hd tv then.... I did, no difference with other games, and my eyes are fine, and i have been gaming for over 21 years.
Are these the same eyes that saw and said Uncharted 1 was using "target renders" and was cgi NOT ingame? I think you seem to have forgotten this little thread and posts just a couple of days ago that you made Fox... http://www.n4g.com/Redirect... /facepalm with a whole lot of disbelief
It's like showing an '07 trailer of Killzone 2; 2 years before the game comes out. Do you really expect it's going to look like that when the actual game is finished? Not to mention polished up? Haha, you might as well throw in a "target render" in there and save yourself from embarrassment. Oh, wait.
imho, it looks good, but not as great as fanbois tried to make me believe, in topics/discussions about 360 games i have been constantly attacked by fanbois claiming that GOW3 would squash everything. But it looks good, just not what people tried to make me believe.
Well David Jaffe was very impressed ("f***ing amazing") by what he's seen. Is he a fanboy? Either way, for gameplay of a title that could be over a year left in production, you can colour me impressed.
If you dont own a PS3 plz find someone who does and watch the trailer form the PS store...in 1080p.. @Below..as I said go watch the Trailer on the PSN in 1080p....looks way better than these gametrailer vids
@Danja, Dude, this game looks good, but it shows nothing new or groundbreaking, take those pink glasses off will ya.
@Foxgod The reason you are attacked by fanboys is because you're a very big fanboy yourself.
I show my appreciation for games, on N4g you cant even state you like 360 games without being branded a fanboi. And you cannot deny that, because i rarely state that game x or y looks like crap. (only when a game really does look like crap) Like in this topic my opinion is that GOW3 looks good, but not groundbreaking, which is not a negative comment, but is taken this way anyway by fanbois, and inmediately brand me a fanboi as well. Then i also claim that game x or game y looks as good as GeOw2, which again is a compliment, but fanbois see it different, automatically branding me a fanboi. In fact i am the one being insulted, if you deny that GeoW2 is a high standard.
i agree with fox I was left a bit underwhelmed. and just for the record, i couldn't care less what jaffe said, or how much anyone hypes this game. Underwhelmed is still underwhelmed no matter who hypes. I guess i have matured to the point where i like to form my own opinion, based on what i experience, without being swayed by propaganda and sales talk. You should try it some time.
That was the best 10 seconds of my life, now I can die happy.
dont you want to play the game first ? :)
lol bubbles 4 u 2
