PS Blog-God of War III Vengeance Trailer

+Posted by Stig Asmussen // Game Director, God of War III

Just wanted to tell everyone how excited we are at SCEA Santa Monica Studio to release this new trailer for God of War III. Considering it has been almost a year since we have put out a new video, this is a really special time for us and we hope everyone enjoys it!

Just to give a little perspective on what we were going for with this trailer, we really wanted to sell the high action of the game and put together snippets of several of the big moments. Everything is pulled straight from the game – there is no trickery, etc. Everything is running in "real time." There are no "cinematic" sequences here, meaning this is all gameplay.

This game deserves every bit of hype behind it, because it will live up to it and then some.

GOTY contender confirmed. :D

The demo was kinda weak, in my opinion.

If the full game plays like that from start to finish, the review scores might be a lot lower than many people are expecting.

krisq3660d ago (Edited 3660d ago )

Demo is almost one year old.

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3660d ago

I'm talking about the overall feel of the game.

Felt very "last gen" compared to the freshness of many modern day games.

I'm sure that a lot of people (especially fans of the series) will enjoy it, though.

Dude you won't say that when REACH comes out, so STFU and quit being a fanturdburger

raztad3660d ago

@kittle = another x-fanboy hating on PS3 exclusives

I dont remember playing on top of a colossus arm or fighting against Hadess in the demo. I'm sure we will see a lot of variety in GoW3. Besides, the demo is typical GoW2 fanfare and still managed to impress many people.

I guess you still will be hating on GoW3 as you did on MAG so I'm wasting my time.

Guido3660d ago

No, you're talking like a troll trying to incite flames from the PS3 fans. GTFO and STFU you silly fanturd.

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3660d ago

Wow, it looks like some of you have issues. lol

I didn't like the demo as much as I had hoped I would, guys. Maybe it was because I had just finished playing 1 and 2, but the gameplay felt last gen and underwhelming.

But if you guys love it, then that's awesome.

Friends? :D

Raf1k13659d ago

The gameplay is similar to the previous games as you'd expect. It is a sequel after all and they're giving us what we want which is more of the same with improvements. There was nothing wrong with the gameplay before so I don't see why they'd change it TBH.

You may not be too keen on it but most of us are and that's why other games have copied it's gameplay.

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3659d ago

Yes, I could very well be in the minority on this one.

I just felt like the game (at least the demo) took pretty much zero risks, and as a result felt like something straight from the PS2 era.

Time will tell if others feel the same.

Baka-akaB3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

Repeating that the gameplay is last gen doesnt make it so and true . What part of it is more outdated that the rest available right now ? Autoaiming ? coz it's hardly needed and a fps here ...

the locking system that every game use since zelda ? The QTE that everyone use and abuse ?

Seriously it's ok to not like the game kittie , or not be a massive blind fan of it (i personally always prefered the deeper gameplay of concurrent action games) but let's not give silly "it's last gen" excuse .

"I just felt like the game (at least the demo) took pretty much zero risks"

But then again it was never the franchise's aim to take gameplay risks . it's a tech demo and a great action game . Always have been , and might always be .

Why put such a burden and expectation here is beyond me . It take risks , just not where you wanted .
I dont see anyone trying to base a whole level on a giant being in movement .

Bathyj3659d ago

And when a game does take risks, like Heavy Rain, you b*tch about that too.

Stop acting like youre ever going to like anything Playstation, you complain in every thread I've seen you in.

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3659d ago

You seem rather defensive about this, Baka-akaB.

I'm not trying to tear the game down, I simply didn't enjoy playing the demo, mainly because it felt no different than the first 2 games to me.

I wanted something a little different (and more exciting) but I understand that others will feel differently.

Different strokes for different folks.

Having said that, I still intend to rent the game and hope that I will enjoy it (much) more than the demo.

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3659d ago

Bathyj, your opinion means nothing to me.

Please spare me the trouble of replying to you. lol

snaz273659d ago

your opinion means nothing to me/us (forgive me for speaking for people but im sure they agree), so please save us the trouble of having to read it... also what games gameplay has changed so much? fps still shoot people, killzone tried to add weight, they get slammed! driving games, you still gotta turn left and right... mario you still jump slam run etc... please which games have changed so drastically?

Christopher3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

I see where you're coming from, and I love that you are using the exact same excuse from the PTOM review, which more than likely means you're just here for attention with such comments.

But, that aside, I haven't seen anyone comment on how much the gameplay of Mega Man hasn't changed through all its iterations. Some games are meant to be played in one way and the familiarity of that gameplay is why people keep coming back. Kind of why people still play great games over and over again, it works.

Just finished Dante's Inferno and I wish it was as clean, smooth, and polished as what I've experienced in the two God of War games on the PS2, but they make a ton of basic mistakes that oftentimes make it hard to control your character as well as you like and it can be frustrating.

So, saying, it's more of the same gameplay for me is actually a good sign.

snaz273659d ago

and you cant base an opinion of a game just on a demo! i wasnt impressed with dead space demo, but it turned out to be one of my faveourite games this gen! R.I.P Dead Space!

Baka-akaB3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )


That's the excuse now ? i'm defensive ? FYI i'm not even planning to buy the game till a distant future (at least 4 months) since it's very low in my list of priority .

I just like gow but like i've said i prefer other games . So that line of defense hardly carry anyweight .

Neither does yours with only so few really innovative games all around ... and wich i'm not even certain you'd buy anyway .

At least based on a few reaction i've seen from you and others , about Heavy rain or other games .

When they offer something different some of you guys find a way to dismiss it as crap , a "non-game" , or not "having enough gameplay" . And yet you're dissapointed a normal action game isnt revolutionizeing your gaming habits ? yeah right .

Where are the likeminded comments for most fps , shooters like r-type/ikaruga , fighting games , or like said above megaman ? Or is it just as usual here a matter of "rebelling" against the hot topic of the moment ?

morganfell3659d ago (Edited 3659d ago )

When you get scared and troll 6 times (so far) in a thread about a game that runs on a console you do not even own then YOU have issues.

As regards GOW3...

Lifendz3659d ago

but I literally dropped my jaw. When the camera panned out and the battle with the water/horse creature was waging and the titan whose back it was all taking place on writhed in pain...yeah, that did it.

Still debating whether I get the collectors edition. Thinking about using that money to pick up Assassins Creed II and Dead Space.

Christopher3659d ago

I do have to say that the trailer really didn't do anything for me. There was nothing really new or big to see that we haven't seen on the Web already. I'm hoping that the stuff they're purposefully keeping hidden is some great stuff that elevates the genre to new levels, but I'm skeptical.

nycredude3659d ago

Bubble how about putting your money where your mouth is. I better one of my paycheck to one of yours that the reviews are 9 and above for this game.

Let me know if you have any balls and I'll set up a paypal account for this bet. Otherwise we'll just know you're nothing but a troll. One of thousands others on this site.

Ravage273659d ago

their fear and jealousy increases my anticipation of the game

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3659d ago

This thread is proof that people take video games way too seriously.

Seriously, I said that I didn't enjoy a demo, and now we got people setting up paypal accounts to try and prove that I am a troll. lol

Seek help, people. Seek help.

lokiroo4203659d ago

says the guy with seven comments on a game he isnt going to get.

baum3659d ago

Not surprised you're playing the victim role. What's sad is that you're not even aware of your stupidity.

Anyway, if you want an explanation of why you're wrong, you are using terms as vaguely defined as "last gen". If by that, what you mean is that it takes no risks, and that it's "more of the same"... then the problem is that you do not seem to be aware that this is a sequel and that people want more of the same.

Also, to say you didn't like a game because it is underwhelming is as moronic as saying "I didn't enjoy it because it's not enjoyable". It's a circular argument and you have to be retarded not to realize.

I don't expect to see the same comments from you once Halo Reach comes out.

rockleex3659d ago

Trolling on PS3 articles, yet claiming to be the victims?

Cry more.

Baka-akaB3659d ago


Precisely , he isnt fooling anyone . he's been consistant saying the same vague "it's so last gen" stuff at least multiple times , too many to pretend he doesnt care or wish the game well .

Then he pretend and hides with more neutral stuff like "but i hope it's better in the final product and i'll still like it!!" .

It's no wonder he's when discussing in arguments in more depth that he would instead lashes out and play the attacked victim ... he barely got any real and valid argument here .

You wont see him make the same claims about most other games that are devoid in originality in their sequels , and certainly not Halo like said above .

And paradoxally , thought not at all a surprise , you'll spot him trash heavy rain and a few other stuff with the same kind of empy and vague comment ..

"the gameplay is so last gen...."
"it's only QTE" ..
etc etc

Come on how are those even real arguments ? And what is even the first supposed to mean anyway ? What's a "next gen" gameplay lol ?
