God of War 3 gameplay video taken from the session with Jim Tilander and Vassily Fillipov today.
Didn't think you'd be able to control the Cyclops like that. I mean I saw it happen in the trailer but I thought it was just for show. Kratos is one bad motherfugger. I think you'll have the option of either killing it (QTE style) or going into that "creature riding" mini-game stuff we just saw.
.........only on playstation3? that s*** was ILL! damn i cant wait for this game to drop.
when damaging/hurting a cyclops after you jump on his back, puts him in frenzy mode attacking everything around him this game looks incredible
Gotcha. Pretty sure it's you who decides in what direction it swings though.
nope as stated in an interview hes "frenzy" he just attacks the next oponent and most likely travels towards him, you dont have any controll over the beast directly
Ah okay. It just seemed like hitting Square causes Kratos to stab it in the neck, which then forces the Cyclops to swing.
i told you it turn up :P looks lot of fun.
He changes direction according to where you stab him. Could be used to make puzzles where you would need to ride a cyclops to break down a wall or big structure...
cant wait to get my hands on this game but did anyone notice how short the animation cycle is for the cyclopse's frenzy walk? i personally found it a little too noticeable :S
Looks amazing BUT... ... A lot of people from this site were complaining about Resi Evil 5 not changing much from Resi Evil 4 last gen... This game looks to be stupidly similar to the other God Of War titles so I guess you lot are gonna be disappointed... Screw the fanboys... I will love God Of War 3 XD
god the music the graphics the gameplay the animation the Fckin PS3
it made me laugh insanely...
Well you miss the point gametime. RE5 changed too much from earlier predecessors where as GoW3 appears to be maintaining the core essence of the identity that makes GoW unique.
@gametime realistically what can they change. They can only add new gameplay elements and thats what the've done with cyclops. I am a little disappointed with the whole frame rate. I hope they can do it like MGS4 where it didn't stutter when jumping from 60fps to 30fps...if they can't, they should just leave it as 30fps. Don't want stuttering frame rate
that dnt know, this game does run at 60 frames per second it just never drops below 30 frames per second on the biggest action sequences. I bet this game will run smoothly at 40 frames most of the time.
Even at this stage. It still has some time to go.
the RE 5 trailer at least i was like WOW at the graphics but GOW 3 does not have that factor? is it because of the Youtube quality or is it the camera is not too close? thanks
i believe from the video i saw you can control the big cyclops because everytime kratos stabs it on the neck it changes direction, but i also notice that you can only control it for a certain amount of time. looking awesome though! i can't wait to see kratos bringing his chaos on my ps3! (8->)
That is true gametime. Difference for me is GoW (the original) is my favorite game of all time and more on that core gameplay is great to me. I'm sure it'll have enough new variety while building on the core mechanics. Just look at GoW2 in comparison to the original. There was a sh** ton of new weapons, items, puzzles and boss fights that felt completely different. That was and will be enough for me from GoW3. Yes i'm biased when it comes to Gow3 because it's my favorite franchise.
It's amazing how NOTHING has changed since GoW1/2.
I don't think there was a framerate problem in the video. It seemed to me it was more of that "shaky screen" effect everytime his cyclops was taking a smack on the skellies. That effect is used on other games too.
Even in that low quality of a video you can see the amazing amount of detail in the game, absolutely amazing! Just goes to show us the might of the ps3! Absolutely Stunning!
I know, you're statement is soooooooo...oooooooooo true you couldn't be more right espescially from a twenty second unpolished preview of this game since all they did was swing the blades a couple of times and then do the exact same move which was found in the previous GOWs which is they controled the cyclops....../sarcasm(incase anybody didnt realize) Back on subject, that wasnt amazing but it wasnt dissapointing, for all the people who didnt believe the trailer was in-game,look at 0:18 he does the exact same fake or skip(crossover) on the cyclops, and it looked really gd, eventhough the cyclops's animation were pretty repetitve but as i said above its unpolished, and Im 1000000000000% sure they will fix it and wont dissapoint
@talltony Don't know why you got disagrees. But that's what they said. It is not LOCKED at 60fps. And it never drops below 30fps. What that means its variable between 30 to 60fps, nothing more or less. 30fps can be absolutely flicker free (most games run 30fps only!), means everything above is a bonus, actually. If they can run that in a dynamic way with vsync on, and without frame tear, well, then its all good and if it will average out at say 40fps, then its more then most games run these days.
I wonder if you can move the camera with the right analog stick
not saying this won't be a good game, cuz i'm sure it will...but this video was laaaaame. P.S. it's sad that i have to preface my statement with an admission of quality just to avoid fanboy hate mail. and i'm sure i'll still get called a 360 fanboy.
LOL PLEASE NO FILMING
OMG, that is intense and is sure to dissapear from Youtube in under 3 hours. I'm going to Zamzar this.
It's just as amazing as i thought it would be. Even through the cam & youtube quality it looks incredible.
WOW...... did not even imagine we would get to see anything untill E3
Volumetric blood. Nuff said.
...in 'God of War 3' you could jump on pp's back!!! ;-D (in the Video) Another QUALITY PlayStation Game to add to my PS3,PS2+PS1 collection;)
it looked like lord of the rings
GOW3 is going to be a bloodsoaked rager.
Would like to have seen more. This vid is a bit dull.
you'll get disagrees but ur right not impressive at all, the framerate sux, the animation of the cyclops is really bad (watch its legs) and even the crowd there watching didn't like it. God of War 2.5 I guess at the end they expected clapping or something and its just dead silent - lol - the announcer is like "Alright..........thanks
happyface, it's quite obvious that you hate the PS3 so nothing impresses you at all. You're judging the game when first of all, it's still early in development and second of all, this is a youtube video. You hate the PS3...we get the message already.
You can clearly hear the crowd start to clap, just as the video finishes. I agree with you on the frame rate, the screen tearing is pretty bad, but they'll fix that; this is just preview code.
I agree. I noticed slowdowns when Kratos got on the cyclop's back. Also having the cyclops kill every other enemy is kind of boring. Looks great though.
It is quite obvious you hate people that say anything negative about the PS3, quite easy to turn back around isn't it <---but wait i am not done. Maybe you are just impressed easily, see how i done that. Of course people are going to judge by what they are showing if they do not want any negative feedback then wait till you have something good to show. If i was to take my unfinished and unpainted car to the car show and they started giving me sh!t about it, i would say but it isn't finished yet and i will have everything lined out next year. You know what they would say "Then bring it next year". I could care less what it is going to look like next year cause i am sure it will be a great game. But going by this video which is the reasoning for the commenting it looks MEH.
looks ok i guess
PS3 owner here. This game to me doesnt look better than Killzone 2 or the new CryEngine possibilities. They said it would suprass anything on the last E3, and from what I see its a normal game, nothing amazing.
Lol it must be hard for you to even say it looks ok. You know this game looks too sick, I mean what the hell did i just see? This will be so sick in HD! I gotta watch that again, cause that was just incredible!
seriously.... a cam in crappy youtube quality....A doublepoop....and it STILL LOOKS INCREDIBLE! YEESH! MINUS A BUBBLE FOR YOU.
God of War III inFamous Spelunker HD Uncharted 2 Heavy Rain Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Killzone 2 MLB09: The Show Ratchet & Clank 6 White Knight Chronicles: Ancient Heartbeat MAG Oh my gosh, I think I'm in gaming heaven...
GOW 3 - March 2010 inFAMOUS - June 2009 Splunker - what's this Uncharted 2- November 2009 Heavy Rain - I think 2010 or late 09 NGS2 - Fall 09 KZ2 - out MLB - out RAC6 - Fall 09 Mag - who knows. So thats like.... 7 exclusives confirmed for this year. Pretty good.
dude if we're talking PSN games... there's WAAAAAY more and there's Quantum Theory, Atelier Rorona, Mars and Demon Souls
you forgot cross edge
demons soul is an awesome rpg..im playin da thing rite now..its jus ridiculously hard...da amount of health u have vs da amount of damage taken by enemies is like cmoonnn very frustrating but its 1 of da best rpgs ive played
In this size not impressive too much. I'll wait to another better video. Where is the "picture comes to life"?
You should go see a doctor, i think you have eyecancer.
you didn't expected the picture to "come to life" in an off-screen youtube video now did? 'cause that would be stupid.
When the game releases in early '10 it will be the best looking console game ever made. I guess it will be the "graphics king" until GT5 comes out in the fall. Either way, calling this not impressive when it still has around a year left in development isnt really understanding of development cycles now is it?
it looks pretty good, but not even half as good as the first trailer... I guess the trailer wasnt true gameplay.
lol what a jealous kid. this game will Shut THE FIXME360 UP.
cool. you all better hurry and view it before sony's lawyers take it off.
Musta watched it just in time. Looked intense for sure.
lets all cum in peace ;]
No Peace... War...
The game of the year for whatever year it comes out in, and probably the next one after that too lol :)
Make me wanted to play GOW and GOW2 again. Titan mode. I have time this weekend...I'll go for it.
I am playing GOW now. GOW2 coming up soon. >;)
Bebedora, good for you...I'm stuck in the office now. But I'll do speed running on both GOW/2...a nonstop play.
Absolutely no reason to own a 360 imo. "Just wait til GDC!" Hahaha.
i know Graphics aren't everything and i will rent a PS3 because i think the God of War series is one of the best but this looks just like God of War 2 now i'm really disappointed! it doesn't looks near as good as the trailer. WTF?
Man, you're gonna judge the games gfx on that? Filmed on what? A phone prolly? There's no way to tell anything like what the game really looks like from this and seeing as the GOW series was one of the best looking on PS2 I really wouldn't worry that this wont look the balls. All we can get from something that low res and shaky is an idea about gameplay mechanics and those look damn sweet. Save the graphical analysis for a better vid.
