Early reported God of War 3 likely to have a online Co-op mode, now the real questions come up is this real and who will Kratos be fighting side by side with.
Is going to be his bother, Technically Hercules is his brother but Im talking about his dead brother that resides in Hades
It's weird though I know zeus is his dad from GoW1 secrets but aren't spartan descendant of hercules given their great strength. I'm sure I learned that somewhere in a book. I think his dead brothers gonna continue the GoW story, from the secret of GoW 1 he looked like hew turned into something that would not welcome Kratos with open arms even though they were really closes brothers.
If the co-op has any narrative significance, then I don't think it will be his brother since that story arc is never considered canon thus far. Its just a 'what if' scenario at this point. Likewise, the story for Krato's brother is that he has become somewhat demonic while in the Underworld and wants revenge against Kratos... hardly a narrative co-op match here. Though if co-op is like suggested, optional Challenge rooms, then the devs could pretty much put whoever they want for players to use like Hercules, Aries, Zeus, Athena.
I just want his brother to make an appearance, its already confirm Kratos will fight Hades so maybe through those levels he will come out
Like Josh said below, Kratos killing Hercules would be a monumental sequence and also my #1 fight, if done right.
In previous games Kratos has done everything Hercules did in Greek Mythology. I was always under the impression that Kratos was in fact Hercules. Prove me wrong guys!
Yes, Kratos and Hercules would be considered half-brothers. Though if you look at the Greek Pantheon, most of the Greek Gods are Kratos's half-brother or sister. In fact I think Hera Queen of the Gods was Zues's sister, in that case Kratos is related to everyone on Olympus. Though Hercules makes the most sense to fight next to since he's a demi-god like Kratos is, then again, so was Percius but Kratos carved him up a big ol'tasty slice of death.
Kratos hasn't worn women's underwear....yet?
I wanted to believe you until you said "Kratos's half brother." Bad spelling discredits anything anyone says in my book. Once you say or spell something that doesn't make sense...you start to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher after that. I never understood how 80% of you people passed high school with such atrocious grammar. Did you cheat your way through or were you part of the "push them along" program? If you read an article and the author couldn't spell or articulate correctly...would you take his article seriously? Then why should we take your comments seriously when you can't dictate a simple paragraph? @ Sinncross His name is Kratos not Krato. So when you use the name is the past tense..stop saying KRATO'S
I think you guys will all be surprised by where this story is going. In one of the chambers of the Fates, there were clear references to the birth of Christ, which was originally the utter destruction of Zeus's Kingdom! Christ is the reason nobody worships Zeus to this day! The game will likely reflect this. Unless they know that nerds hate God and many gamers are nerds, so in order to prevent a backlash, they stay away from this portion of the original story.
Hmm.. Jesus and Kratos, taking down Mt. Olympus. Hell yeah! :D
Well, when you put it that way. LOL! Guess I should have stayed on the coop topic, or stated openly I was going off topic. What I said sounds positively ridiculous in a coop sense! You saved me from a whole line of comments pointing out how stupid I am! Bubbles!
If i could play as Jesus in a video game...it'd be AWSUM!!! =D I'm sure the pope would have something to say about it tho xD
Jesus in God Of War?!?! :D Special execution moves of feeding someone one fish and making it turn into thousands when it's in their stomach
Will Jesus own like in this video XD http://www.youtube.com/watc...
well i want to be able to kill hercules
haha yeah. I think it will be Athena though, since she seems to have this connection (being a God of War) and all.
OMG Herc HELL YEAH in fight their no way Herc can loose to the Ghost of Sparda i'm mean Herc match blow for blow with the Hulk.
The blades of chaos would own anyone. They would have to give Hercules a damn fine weapon to match kratos IMO.
The blades are powerful but Hulk can destroy a planet with a single punch and Herc was taking them like it was nothing.
It may not be a single choice that the devs offer. Additional playables could be unlockable through trophies. Just to name a few: Hercules Achilles Perseus Ajax Leonidas Hippolyta Penthesilea Atalanta
wasn't perseus the one in GOW2, you the one who's head was repeatedly smashed between two doors :) So a co-op wouldn't make sense. As for me I'm strongly against the idea of having co-op for games like GOW I wanna feel the epicness to myself :D I might be the only one who feel that way thought:)
perseus was the one who got tossed on the hook
Ah my bad:P
not something that will make the SP crap. who doesn't want extra online gaming that will increase the longevity of the game without affecting the SP campaign?? only a fool does.
Perseus for two reasons. First he will be extremely popular next year.... http://www.youtube.com/watc... And second there is a reason for him to hate Kratos when the game is over. Why does that matter? Because the twist should be in a co-op game that when you beat the title together the last level is the two of you trying to kill each other. Everyone of those characters I listed has a reason to hate Kratos. Some more than others. And realize I am talking about a choice for a co-op character meaning he would be one of several.
ans PSN will Fail Just like MW2 Bu-Bu-But Free
:D "PlayTV"=PS3s HD-DVD.
and the xbox 360 will fail just like RROD Bu-Bu-But PAID
The xbox and Live just dies after being turned on :) Bu,Bu,But it's beter because we pay for it :P Works both ways BOTS, this is a playstation 3 article, why don't you go play a game with your console....oh wait it's still at MS haha No disrespect intended for 360 owners that aren't fanboys it is all sarcasm :) PSN ID: Sitris
no one buys it now and no one subscribes to LIVE after the first year cuz no one pays for lame peer to peer servers. PSN is free and was down just 1 day for maintenance. MS HD DVD= dead x360 after ps3's price cut = dead all over the world x360's lineup in 2009 = flop with only aaa flopza 3 flopping with 175k copies PS3's lineup in 2009 = 4 aaa with best rated console exclusive UC2 and best rated jrpg demon souls
Why not OFFline co-op? I'll take online co-op any day but I want to be able to play against or with the person sitting next to me too!
Are you going to make an appearance in uncharted 3????
you can catch me in the following episodes of uncharted eye of indra, as for uncharted 3 no comment ;)
I remember someone proposed this as a co-op idea would be sweat and would work too.
That would be the perfect match, a god and a goddess with chain-blades. Her name is nariko by the way, natko's from killzone 2.
ever happen, but it would definitely be AWESOME! Heavenly Sword is definitely an under appreciated game. Yes, it should've been longer, but the game was EPIC and fun!
Why are you bots here? This game is ONLY on PS3 so gtfo.
bots are the most annoying group of people...
haha, you bots have lost ALL your arguments. You don't even make sense now. Kinda pathetic I'd say.
i agree.wth is "PlayTV"=PS3s HD-DVD supposed to mean??
Hey fadeaway u have an idea there bro that could work her and kratos fighting along side now that would be epic.
I don't another guy, i hope its a warrior princess [Xena]???? Or Nariko from Heavenly Sword or Goddess Athena [yeah i know what happened to her] but if Kraots can come back to life then so can she [plus she seems to be the only God/Godess that Kratos likes].
As much as I like Kratos, anyone who would trust him enough to work with him now is probably going to get the bloody death that they deserve. Kratos is basically a villain in a world of nothing but villains by this point.
...Ken Kutaragi!!! ;-D HE IS A GOD!!! ;)
there was just a long interview with SM dev and he made it very clear that they were focusing on the story and SP game.....and that there was NO co-op.
you guys think medusa's third sister going to be in the game? In Greek mythology (for those of you who read it) Medusa and her sisters were known as the Gorgon sisters that consist of Medusa who we fought in GOW, Euryale who we fought in GOW 2. Stheno is the third sister, it makes perfect sense for them to introduce her now, I pretty sure they will come through on it. What do you guys think?
I doubt gow3 storyline will have coop. I am guessing it will be separate like challenges mode in coop.
notice how most games are starting to have a co-op that is actuallly relevant to the story, multiplayer is one of those things that if developer isn't gonna do right he may as well not do at all, so lets hope its not you're average last minute tacked on feature
stop the hype in this mediocre graphics ps3fanboys. any button masher can beat gow3 in a day. have better games in graphics http://xbox360media.ign.com...
Bullet Shots. FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Chet Faliszek 360 - ^^^ Go Fu*K You'r self & f*ck yor gay box ;)
Nariko and Kratos should have been in the ps3 version of soul caliber 4. See how well he plays in the psp version.
I thought that was just a neutral game that everyone enjoyed. GTFO bots! This game is too good for you and your horrible console.
preferably this time using Kevin Sorbo for model :D. Also, his brother would be a welcome addition.
i really do not care about god of war, but since i am mentioned, i guess i will have to look at it, i have the e3 demo, but nothing that makes me want to go out and spend $60, i guess we will see
This game would be best played on 360 with natal i can't imagine playing this crap on ps3's di1do Wand..Expect the co op to suck.
