what's the comment about santa monica about? :S


Ascension is the 6th(?) GoW and looks just like every other GoW.


if you just go by appearence yes. They are trying quite a few new things with the game from what we have seen already. This isn't even being 'creative' ..they are just using a different already existing comic book line.


Like what? They added Multiplayer, the most cliche thing to do nowadays. When a game goes beyond the trilogy mark it must take steps to refresh to formula. Ascension has the same character( its time to retire Kratos), Same setting...it just time for something new. I can promise Ascension will be the last GoW that wont face backlash for being more of the same.

How is that a bad thing ? I don't mind since its the gameplay I like with different enemies and different places to visit.

And FYI, there are, and have been subtle changes over the course of the 6 games. It just isn't obvious enough at first glance.

I've noticed quite a few changes in Ascension that people do not notice easily.

Sounds crap.


My thoughts. Any sequel should follow on from the end of the game (hopefully in a better way Harley Quinn's revenge did). Personally have a hope for it being set in Gotham City this time (bit of and ask but my concept only works this way) and involves Azreal's warning coming to fruition. With that in mind, my own choice for the villian was Prometheus (Going through the villians list, he sounded like a charcter worth being put under the spotlight).

every sequel to every game has subtle changes. When you are on your 6th installment subtle change's are not enough.

Did you see the multiplayer and read the details? It's a very well made MP that is more comparable to power stone games. MP is a huge risk for this franchise...something people will be very skeptical about but they took the risk anyways. doing prolgues is also a cliche thing you know...

so has batman changed? GoW IS about Kratos.....his personality may change but at least for now you can't blame them for keeping one of the most iconic characters in the history of PS. also their last game is the highest selling hack and slash in the history of gaming. The only way they can have a new character is a reboot or a retake on the whole game (which isn't what this batman game will be doing either..it's just a new setting)...and if that happens it will happen during ps4 not ps3.GOD:A is not the same setting either >_>

They changed combat, added time freezing for combat AND movement...new enemies. That's all we know for now and we will learn more with time as well. Going back to another comic book series with the same hero is NOT a risk at all...not even close to adding MP for GOW

Like ability to use the weapons of downed enemies, re-appearance of the time manipulation after God of War II which opens the gate for incredible puzzles just to name a couple of changes based on the demo alone. Not to mention that the enemies we saw were never before in any God of War game.

It may not be much, but subtle changes are enough for people like me (the fans) to be interested. In fact, we'll take anything with new locations and bosses.

Why does it bother you by the way ? I thought you didn't like God of War ?

I'm not saying you're completely wrong btw. What I would like to see is God of War based on Egyptian or Norse mythology. A new trilogy with someone who resembles Kratos (for the fans, just change the colour of his tattoos :P) and the brand name God of War (for the sales) will be perfect. Everyone wins.

There is some

Time freezing? ok

MP is not a step or forward or back.  As long as the main story is good ppl will ignore shitty multiplayers in a series not known for it as opposed to CoD where its the main attration.

You keep comparing GoW to Batman, but Batman has evolved. Batman games have been developed since the 80's and has had multiple game design mechanics with metroid Batman being the current which hasnt even seen a 3rd installment.  Go has 6 installments in 7 years and remain more of the same,.

Maybe not for you. But they're good enough for me. Seriously though, do you even like the series ? I thought you disliked it.



@God of War comments - They should of rebooted the series to a Norse mythology setting imo.


As for batman sequels! I need to play the first 2 still D:
