Sony's new rumoured PS3 exclusive from Santa Monica may very well be the revival of a previously canned PSP title: Heartland.
hmmm interesting. about 3 weeks to go before we know it all!!!
if this is true, it will be interesting to see whether they stick to the original story of the USA being invaded by China, which is somewhat similar to the concept in Homefront.
I can't even imagine how epic this could be. GOW is one of the best hack n slash games around, so I'd be really interested in what Sony Santa Monica could do with the FPS genre. But, I'm getting kinda bored with the sheer amount of FPSs so it better be very different.
no no no no no just no, we want god of war not another bullshit IP how do we know this is going to be good? it could fail i want to see a game what we will know will do well :D
Well rumours are suggesting that Santa Monica are working on 2 new games, the new IP and GOW4.
well thats orite then :) lol
im gonna have to disagree (without hitting disagree) i love gow always have always will but i would love to see something new from them.
how bout you STFU and leave god of war alone the game is done the gods are dead and it was ab epic ednign to an epic adventure.
not really ? have you even played GOW 3 ? at the end after the credits you see kratos body dragged off the cliff? who by ? maybe the person you play as in the next GOW maybe?!
well ive played gow3 and simply put all the gods are dead athena is dead and kratos could've crawled himself. he gave hope to humanity and life went on to become what it is now thats gow3s ending its done and they dont have to dig gow out of its grave people like you just want it so bad that they'll over think it and the devs end up making it and it dosnt end up as good as the pervious game.
I don't want GOW4 and neither do a lot of people. What happens to Kratos at the end of GoW3? Well that's the point of the story.. they let you interpret it the way you want and that's good storytelling. These devs are quality. Lets see them use their talent for something thats not so.... limiting as a hack n' slash can be.
If Kratos, a guy turned god turned guy, can fight his way out of Hades, why can't an actual god do the same? I'm all for whatever they decide. There aren't enough quality hack & slash games out there. Santa Monica is good at what they've done so far. More should be good as well.
i think it should be mentioned that there is no hades hel is just empty nobody ruling it
They should definitely drop the QTE's. They are old and a mechanic well passed their sell by date.
This will be very welcome, the more new ips the better. Each generation Sony has its studio creat new franchises which is good for us gamers and their overall porfolio of games. Santa monica has to expand beyond god of war. Sony cant have studios that only rely on a single or two ips, rather acreative cast. This is good if true.
All very good points.
Stanraimondi What would you like to see. I too have thought this but as GOW was such a huge hit to me i like the style of game and atmosphere and story. that i wonderd what if they made another ipstill using maybe greek mythology. Or make a pure gladiator experiance.
I would just like to see something different from them as i said i love gow and if it is another gow fine they'll get my money regardless. I just think it would be nice to see them make something different maybe a good rpg.
well they certanly have the tech and knowledge of the ps3. there very good studio with alot of talent a RPG would be intresting im not a huge RPG fan myself. but im sure anything they make gonna rock. yeh RPG hmm intresting that could work even with a hint of mythology easy. nice stuff man.
I would like him to be somewhat involved in a project he started.
Why couldn't he? TM would be out and finished while this was still in pretty earl development so an outside/overseeing role should be possible, no?
why did he ever stop working on GoW?
and they turned out great, and that's all I'm asking for this one.
I just hope its for PS3, because i couldn't give a crap if its for psp
not sure why you played ghost of sparta. the NGP gonna be awsome too.
I would be cool with a revival of Heartland. I just would want to see the game on the NGP.
I hope this isn't it, solely because of HOMEFRONT. This game 'Heartland' would've been a great idea a few years ago but now it's too late. Bush is out, and Homefront didn't do great, which was a game based on similar premises.
They could easily forgo the Bush administration angle. Remember, that was when Jaffe was involved in the story which is most likely no longer the case. If they get this right they could tell a more convincing story then Homefront did.
