Chris Faylor: "The blast of new media from GamesCom 2009 continues with these God of War III screenshots from Sony, which illustrate how some weapons emit pretty colors."
Yes you get to fight Hades(I think thats him) I cant wait any longer
It will be sooo much fun destroying Hades. THIS GAME WILL OWN!
In the end... he will suffer...
yeah we do get to fight Hades but i don't think that is him still cant wate to kill that dude but then agin that could very well be hades we will see
Hmm, I may very well be wrong, but I would assume Hades would be probably the 2nd to last boss, as he's probably the most important god left apart from Zeus and **possible spoiler** Athena (who won't show up). I don't see them showing pics of that fight, just like I wouldn't expect to see pics of the inevitable Zeus or titans fight, at least not yet. Also, I'm not sure that looks much like what I would think Hades looks like in the game. It looks more like a mini-boss and a lackey (maybe the guardian of Hades), since it looks like some mindless abomination, not a god, even if it is the god of the underworld. Although, that being said, I'm probably wrong and it is Hades. ;) (edit: ugh, come to think of it, I really am probably wrong, because I seem to remember in GoW2, I think it was, there is some silhouette or something showing Hades and I remember that helmet. Maybe I'm thinking of something else. Either way, if it does or doesn't turn out to be Hades, he looks cool.)
None of you guys played God of War 2 did you? There was a scene of Hades going head to head with Chronus. He was also in the final cutscene along with Zeus and some other Gods. That is indeed Hades. I think he will grow in size as the fight progresses. On a magazine cover depicting Kratos and his uncle fighting, Hades was about the size of a building.
...Holy crap. o_o
I wonder how many of the gods you'll actually get to fight in the game
I think I'm missing a couple, but they were all there atop Mt. Olympus at the end of GoW2.
ur missing hermes but idont know if you can count helios as a boss fight though unless you think ripping his head is a fight but he was powerless
Well, considering how adverse Kratos is with working with others, I have a feeling that finishing off the gods is only half the game, right before you go after the bigger, badder titans who are only using Kratos (at least that's how he will see it).
for a second there, I thought this was a painting.
Yeah, I know what you mean, that screenshot totally took me by surprise as well.... I guess now I know what Jaffe meant when he said "God of War 3 is "Like a Painting Come to Life", because it just looks that good.
It looks like art work to me.
@cmrbe If you go to the site and enlarge the image, it's easy to see that's it's clearly an in-game shot, and it looks great. Whether it's a touched up image or not, we will have to wait and see, but I would say it's not.
These screen-shots are epic.
Out of all the Gods that I know are in GOW3, Hades is the guy I'm looking forward to fighting the most (even more than Zeus). I guess I'm interested in fighting him more because, Hades can literally pull Souls out of people with his blades/hooks, and I can't wait to see how his ability to strip away a persons soul from their body will play out in the battle.
if those are in-game, i'll probably freak out.
You should probably be freaking out about now.
God of War 3 looked like a painting? http://www.shacknews.com/im... yeah.
Holy s**t, I completely believe him now. Providing those ARE screenshots.
Only on PlayStation® 3 ;-D i hope you Chatboxes enjoy your glitches of war 3 when it eventualy comes out ;-}
jaffe was right those do look like paintings, honestly
It looks like concept art. Does anyone have confirmation that those are in-game?
Those are some crazy sh1t if they are in-game.
oOoOoOo me likey
I'd go with The Last Guardian for GOTY, but who cares we get both!! :)
Oh yeah how could i forget about that, action game of the year 2010 guaranteed though edit: best action game this gen
that I definitely agree. PS3 has the best exclusives.
Only PS3. Now at a very affordable price, PS3 offers true next generation games that the 360 cannot hope to handle. The Ps3 is THE gamer's console.
Damn GOTY went to MGS4 or LBP in 2008. While U2 is taking it for 2009. Gow 3 and The Last Guardian are taking 2010. :)
They are in-game!!!. Dam, U2 top graphics reign will be a short one. If these shots are real and they are early builds i can't imagine what it will look like come March 10. This is insane.
right there, that's the POWER of the CELL !!!!!
those screen shot are faaking awesome!!!!
This game is simply stunning.
Painting coming to life....
...when GoW II came out, even developers said that it looked better than a lot of the games that were running on the PS3 and 360 at the time, so if they can push the PS2 to that limit, I'm almost willing to say that this game will be one of the most incredible games coming out on any console. P.S. The PS3 is $299, so some people need to stop hating and start buying; there's not much of an excuse now.
I know I am gonna be flamed for this.. but let me get one thing very clear before all the disagree and flames that the reason I have a PS3 is coz of God of war. The graphics look amazing.. but the special effects like the purple flame on the hades claw blades and a few more effects around leave a lot to be desired.. honestly they look like effects from the GOW 2 engine. I hope they are still ironing it out and look better when the game comes out.. again the game looks really great but I am not a big fan of some of the effects the game has.
