I absolutely loved God of War 1 and 2, but never did finish 3. I really need to get around to playing the remaster, although as much as I loved the hack and slash I felt a little bored of it which is why I never finished playing it. Still really curious how they shake up the formula in this one.

I'm in. I've liked all of the GoW games in the main series.

I'm hoping SONY releases a custom system, so I can finally get a PS4.

GOW may be my favorite game series of all time so naturally I can't wait for this one. I think I will play through the series again this year in chronological order. That'll make my 3rd run through of all the titles ..

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

I had GoW 3 spoiled for me, because a friend invited me over to play Street Fighter, but he just couldn't tear himself away from GoW 3. He ended up finishing the game after playing for an hour, reassuring me he'd stop before the ending. I wasted the better portion of my night, and had (at the time) a great new release ruined for me. This same friend had a habit of doing this with the Arkham series as well, which is why I've never revisited the series. All that being said! I actually want to play this game, it looks vastly different from the previous games, count me in.

Also, the stoners are going to have a great 4/20 this year. God of War and The Rock's new movie on the same day. Their brains will melt!

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Ouch.

I can’t wait for this, I’ve loved every game so far. I’m very interested in how these changes are going to work.

But if there’s side missions that require babysitting, I’m out.

Holy cow, I thought this was coming out later in fall. Gamers are going to be really busy with a flood of new games coming out in March followed by GOW.

Stoners will be watching Super Troopers 2, not Rampage

I tried every 10 minutes we weren't playing Street Fighter and was met with "ok ok one more moment" sometimes I'm too patient for my own good.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Stone Mason's Edition up at Amazon and Best Buy too. $119 is a little tempting w/ GCU. I'm just wondering if it's going to be limited like Horizon Zero Dawn was. Or overproduced like Uncharted 4 was. For now I'm sticking with my $40 Target preorder.

Amazon Amazon

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/god-of-...?skuId=6195929

There is also a slightly cheaper Collectors Edition that is missing a few items from the other, but still comes with the statue and steelbook. $103.99 w/ GCU.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Yeah, I placed a pre-order for the Collector's Edition. Those four little trinkets don't seem like they'd be worth the difference to me. I would like that Kratos & Son statue though. My Aloy statue is my favorite video game collectable ever. They did such an amazing job on it.

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

BTW : I thought this was interesting -- the Digital Deluxe version on PSN for $69.99 comes not only with some bonus digital content but comes with a physical enamal pin. Never seen a physical bonus with a digital purchase before. If you use that 10% off coupon (I assume it works on pre-orders, but don't know that for sure as the fine print didn't give details of exculsions) it would be $63 this week.

Yeah, that statue is what might get me to preorder. It's made by the same company too, Gentle Giant. So it should be on par as the same quality as Aloy, which I also love. The detail on that one was nothing short of amazing.

^ Didn't know that. Keeping my pre-order in that case.

It does look nice.

We are excited to announce that a Limited Edition God of War PlayStation 4 Pro bundle will launch alongside the game on April 20, 2018. This special bundle features a fully customized PS4 Pro console inspired by Kratosí Axe, a Leviathan Gray DualShock 4 wireless controller with insignia, a physical copy of God of War and digital content. This limited edition bundle will be available across the U.S. and Canada for $399.99 USD (MSRP) / $499.99 CAD (MSRP).Pre-orders start today.



This Limited Edition PS4 Pro was designed in close collaboration with Santa Monica Studio, bringing to life Kratosí Leviathan Axe. We asked Shannon Studstill, Head of Santa Monica Studio, to share some background on the inspiration behind the special design of the custom PS4 Pro:

ďWhen we designed Kratosí new Leviathan Axe, we knew it would have far more meaning not only to the game, but to our fans. Santa Monica Studio was extremely proud to adorn the custom PS4 Pro with the Leviathan Axe in such detailed fashion. We spent a painstaking amount of time to ensure this PS4 Pro was special, for the special fans who will cherish it.

The top surface is the Axe skill tree youíll use in-game to upgrade your axe, along with the runic gem slots on the handle that enable unique special attacks. The side panels are trimmed with a beautiful Norse design, and the runes each represent a realm in the game. The Leviathan Gray DualShock 4 wireless controller has the Huldra Brothers brand on it (just like the Axe), and a very subtle God of War logo on the touchpad.

I enjoyed every bit of the design process with Cory and the team, because we were united in our vision of what we wanted the custom PS4 Pro to embody. The game looks absolutely stunning on PS4 Pro and we canít wait to share a new beginning for God of War when it launches on April 20.Ē

Re: God of War (4/20/18- PS4)

Oh, so the design on the top is supposed to look like his axe. I think they missed the mark on this one, it looks hideous.

The game still looks fantastic though, it better fucking deliver.

Oh man, I'm REALLY tempted to click on those, but since we are only a month out at this point, I'm avoiding everything.
