I haven't played the demo yet, but I'm sure the gameplay is excellent (as GoW always is).

I'm just worried about the story, which is a non-negligible part of any God of War game, and as such unless the demo gameplay really blows me away, I probably won't pre-order it.

We'll see... it seams they are focusing on the story more than the previous games so... :)

I don't see how there's even a story to focus on, to be honest. I swear they have just plucked this part of Kratos' life out of nowhere.

It doesn't reveal any new events, because it's a prequel. It doesn't reveal any new perspectives, because it's still Kratos. It doesn't even really reveal a new timeframe, because Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta were both pretty much set around this point. I just don't get the purpose of it.

I find myself wishing they had just abandoned Kratos and moved on with the series, but hey, maybe there's something huge that I'm missing, like Kratos having amnesia and forgetting all about the period of his life he spent as a travelling clown in Asia or something.

This game should be focus more on the umanuty of Kratos, something that wasn't touched so much in all the other games. I'm not saying that this will be the best GoW ever but that we shouldn't bash the story without give it a  chance.

Are you fucking kidding me. Kratos was mass murderer in his past he had no humanity until he killed his family and that has been touched on in the first game, and Chains of Olympus pretty good actually. Is he suppossed to become a loveable character? Because he seriously is not. The defining Kratos scene was when he went into hydra to get the key. I mean this is Kratos, he is the only real Anti hero we have.

But this game has some flashbacks or some visions that will explain better the relation between Kratos, his wife and his daughter.. so no, i'm not fucking kidding you(as you americans like to say)... maybe you don't even know what you are talking about or maybe it's so hard to understand what i mean lol XD

This is exactly why I think Ascension is going to serve a purpose as to set up the future GoWs possibly with a new mythology.

Same here. Pre-ordered both the Limited Edition and the system. I don't share some of the doubt, because Kratos' story can be bent, prequel or sequel. I espect God of War IV within the first three years of the PS4's life, but this will do to help close out the PS3.

WOW! O_O
