Interesting. Guess it's time to actually play GoW3.

Hmm....so a prequel? Hopefully it'll be somewhat as good as GOWIII. Don't think it can quite top that, but hopefully get close.

I guess I'm gonna have to finally play GOWIII, despite the fact that the demo for it killed my interest in the game.

GOW III has been one of the best PS3 action titles to date. Can't wait for another one in the series!

Just curious, but how did the demo kill your interest? This is one damn fun game to play. I thought the demo captured that pretty well. But it is definitely a very small slice of the entire game.

I love the tagline: "Art Not Final".

Presumably there will be man-on-man action in the straight porn mini games this time around.

It just felt like the same game I'd played before but with prettier graphics. I expected more. :shrug:

I know this is probably blasphemy, but having never played any God of War game, I got the God of War Collection on PS3 and lost interest part of the way through the first one. I got to Hades, which I guess is pretty far, and there were moments where I thought the game was really fun, but I just had no desire to finish it. If it were a little shorter or I was better at action games, I probably would have felt differently.

I don't know... I loved the first three (never played any portable version(s)), but I don't know that I care about a prequel enough to bother.

Then you'd hate GOW II, it's much longer and has perhaps the hardest single challange to overcome, at least for me.

You definitely need to give the whole game a shot then. You'll get more, a lot more.

I'd feel better about this game if I saw a San Diego Studios logo somewhere on the credits. Are they the team working on this title?

You mean Santa Monica Studios, yes, they're the ones behind this again.

Good to know. I've heard many people say II is their favorite, so I've considered giving it a try, but I think I need to just accept that these games are not really for me.

Wasn't the PSP game the prequel? Is it no longer canon now?

I ADORE the God of War series and i canít wait for this one, but i just hope that itís not a TRUE prequel, meaning BEFORE he Ďdiedí and got his Blades of Chaos and became Ďsupernaturalí with powers and magic etc.

I just hope itís not Kratos when he was human, with no special abilities or his blades and killing plain old boring soldiers! :D

He won't cook it. He'll kill it and then he'll have his bitch cook it for him.

You just have to pass the mini-game where he bangs her first.

Loved the series and have played every iteration so far. That being said, this is definitely a day one purchase for me.

The game won't actually have that Street Fighter IV look, will it?

Which challenge was that? I never got stuck in GOW II like I did with GOW I. Climbing those damn spike pillars out of Hades, ARGHHHH!!!!

Re: God of War: Ascencion
 
The spiked pillars is where I quit playing the game....but I played the other ones, beat them and loved them.
