50 posts in this topic

Game director Cory Barlog confirmed we'll be able to revisit most places in the game when we finish. This is great if we ever miss out on that hard to find collectible.

 

 

Also, five new screenshots

Let’s just hope if something is missed it falls under the “most” category. This is good to know though, thanks for the thread :)

Can we please just go back to Greece😊

 

That's good to know. I'm sure collectibles are out as they're "too video game-like" for this serious, adult, cinematic experience. But if I want to maybe paddle a boat around for a few extra hours bonding with an ugly kid, good to know I've got the option!

That's always nice to hear, especially when one needs to go and collect anything one may have missed before.  But I had a feeling that was the case, or something similar after hearing that the game was more open ended.  Gives you a chance to go and murder any optional boss you might have missed too xD

If that means that I'll be able to play the game without having to look for a collectables guide on my 1st playthrough that's really nice :D 

 

This game is going to be phenomenal, I can't wait.

I'm getting Horizon Zero Dawn vibes from this game. 40 hour campaign? That's fucking unheard of for a God of War game.

I think we're in for the most different experience yet. Which, I'm all for. I loved all of the original God of Wars. I've platinumed every single one of them. But at the same time, I want a narrative that isn't just screaming at the sky, killing and banging.

Feels like we're getting a more mature experience.

I wish once we beat it we can abandon the kid  like we can with Palicos lol. won't happen but I haven't liked the kid since day 1. I just think he will be whiny. hopefully the game makes me change my mind by the end. can't wait for this. expecting reviewsto give a 9-10.

Doesn't sound like you want a God of War game.

Now this looks great.

I hope there's 200+ labors, and there's a trophy for getting them all.

So innovation is the same over the shoulder slow paced action game with The Last of Us vibes? I mean I agree God of War was getting really stale but is this any better?

I think the combat looks super polished and exciting. Does 5 seconds of utilizing the kid to get through environmental obstacles really take away from the experience that much for you?

I don't think we watched the same gameplay. Polished, maybe, but I wouldn't call it exciting by any means especially compared to the previous ones. Sure, it was a simplified version of Devil May Cry combat but it was engaging and fun. The new one reminds me too much of Hellblade, which just comes off as a massive step-down in comparison. They chose to focus more on narrative than gameplay and it shows. That just isn't what God of War is.

 

There's also the fact that the violence seems toned down. I know super-violent isn't everything but that's been the staple of the series since the beginning. In the newest one enemies don't seem to bleed but rather have glowy insides for whatever reason and it looks like they spill out orange juice from their wounds. This whole thing just comes off as another game that just so happens to be titled God of War and the guy you're playing as just so happens to look like Kratos with a beard, but it lacks a lot of the things that actually make it God of War.

 

You may call it "innovative" and "mature", but I call it watered-down and boring. Some games can just be dumb fun and that's perfectly fine. Not every game needs to be the next The Last of Us.

Here's yet another mirror.

Will probably be deleted soon too. You can even see that the embargo lifts on Monday. So, yeah, this video shouldn't have leaked so soon lmao.

Not every game is trying to be The Last of Us. And I wouldn't even say it's trying to be. Like I said before, I think it's this year's Horizon Zero Dawn. 

Look around and tell me how many hack and slash games there are out there right now. Not many, right? They have to evolve too. There's nothing wrong with vintage God of War or old school Devil May Cry. In fact, that was HnS at its finest. But it's quite obvious that God of War is going in a different direction now. I'd definitely say it's not even a hack and slash anymore. I think it's more of an action game with a narrative. Which is gonna turn some people off, but for me, I always wanted more emphasis on narrative with God of War. 

Don't get me wrong, it's fun to slash enemies to pieces. But I like when there's method to the madness. Kratos was just a one trick pony that screamed vengeance and death. You don't have to like the new take. Go back to the PS3 and enjoy the classics. I know plenty of other people are extremely excited for this reimagining. Myself included.

In a game where Kratos’ main objective is to honor his dead wife...yeah, there’s not going to be a sex minigame. Check the moves list-most of the combos from old GoW games are present here.

But his wife was dead in the other games too and that didn't stop him. :hmm:

Considering he's got a son that's still alive around this time, not surprised that he wouldn't want to give his son any reason to kill him over sleeping with a woman that isnt Faye. As I recall Kratos is trying to be a new man, so no sex minigames for you.

I liked Kratos better when he didn't give a fuck about anything and killed anyone in his way. :P

In your opinion.

 

Some of us prefer God of War back when it wasn't a The Last of Us wannabe, lol. The gameplay has taken a big step backwards in favour of "muh MaTuRe cInEmAtiC E-X-P-E-R-I E-N-C-E". If you like how it did a total 180 and turned into a totally different game, then more power to you. I liked God of War back when it was God of War, though.
