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.

I am sure they will change the setting at least. And they changed a lot from Asylum to city. Of course GoW had some changes from the first to the last, but those changes where so unsignificant that nobody really cared. It is always the same, same character same setting, same gameplay. You can deny it, but it is true. I am a huge GoW fan but I was hoping the next installment would feature a new character and a new setting. And we will the same old. I am looking foward to this if it becomes true. I am not very familiar about Silver-Age Batman but Rocksteady has done a great job with Arkham, and I am sure they will with this one as well.

ugh lol no. what is this 'setting' you talk of? Greece? what next..batman was set in the USA...same setting too going by that logic..it's the same darn thing. same character too..kratos...and batman. heck we don't even know the locations in the gow A yet...the enemy designs look like they were inspired by african/asian cultures too

and what do you mean more changed in batman? Ffs god of war went from a gods servent to fighting on climbing TITANS! how is that the same old same old...let's do the same to batman...he went from indoors...to outdoors >_>

and gameplay has changed...the gameplay videos for SP GOW A already showed those changes..if you are an actual fan you should have noticed that easily.

I don´t know if you noticed but Kratos killed himself in the 3rd part, that should have been the end of Kratos. But those cowards had not the balls to continue with a new one, so they just brought the old one back. I mean I love Kratos, but he had his his epos. It is time to write a new one. Bring a new hero, I don´t care if it is Thor or anybody else, just start a new one. Instead of changing the Hero they just made Kratos´ arms skinnier (seriously they are much smaller). And yes with setting I mean greece, greek mountains to specific. He is always somewhere in the mountains. And yes I really appreciated the Titans fights in the 3rd part, they where awesome. The gameplay is not a big problem because it is very good, they changed it a bit but nothing significant. And what monster looks african/asian to you? The Elephant?

Batman became open world, the boss fights where much different and you could play with other characters.

Geez.. Jay, I never said GoW not changing would its success or Sells just that it would be the last time GoW could away with it being more of the same. People will start complaining about it being to similar to previous entries. Now im really gone

btw you made it on topic andrew


My mistake then. I misinterpreted your point. You may be right then. People may grow old of GoW. I'm not sure. But GoWA could be the last God of War for a while, so we may not get a chance to find put.

I would spoiler tag that first bit...and dunno if you noticed..the ending showed it was not the 'end'

what the heck do you mean just mountains? sorry i can't take your opinion seriously after a statement like that....you generalize way way too much.  SO batman has always been in a city...and in the US.  the boss fights were different in gow of war too..i wish you and xxain would use the same methods of measurements to both games and not just gow.  The gameplay have made some real significant changes, both combat and movement.

Have you see elephants in greece? The goats, the elephants are oozing african/asian (southern/south east) influence. and why ignore the multiplayer?! it's a huge change for the series as I explained above..and it plays very differently too

change is there,,,gotta go more than skin deep to see it. Which I'm sure is the case with batman as well

tagged it.

And yes ot showed the end of Kratos, not of the series but of Kratos

I did not say just mountains, but you always end up somewhere in the mountains(You know its true). God of War has 5 games and Batman 2 (from Rocksteady) you can´t measure them equally.

I know there where changes, I already said that. They attached the "magic" to the weapons which as not a real improvement imo, and they made you climb a  Titan who climbs a mountain. And climbing was not really new, we already had that in God of War 2. And those Goats are from the very first God of War game, except the big one, now they just look better.

no he didn't >_> did you not wait until credits role?

I think you are mistaking the landscape in greece and greek mythology here...we have seen kratos in cities, mountains, on titans, in the sea as well. Mountainous regions are a huge part of greek mythology and greece in general. It's like complaining about buildings in batman games. We are again talking about santa monica here, they have 3 GOW games not 5. If you can't measure them equally then you shouldn't try to draw comparisons either. Not sure what you mean no real improvement 0_o the time freezing changes gameplay and puzzles dramatically. and even the combat itself is different now. I honestly don't remember goats in gow 1 tbh...but it's definitely asian/african influence in the new game for sure...

and again don't just ignore the biggest 'known' change..the multiplayer..which is I repeat, a huge risk and change for the series.

Yep the goates where there

Sometimes I think people just read what and how they want. It should not take part in greece, it should take part somewhere else, Egyt, Germany in space I don´t care just something different. What I meant with improvement was that every weapon had their own special ability like the souls and the hades weapon(did not like that). And I can´t tell you how much I care about GoW MP. The only Multiplayer I play is Fifa, not even Gran Tourismo. It is like the Bioshock MP, not necessary. And I am sure the MP will replace the challenges, which would be rather unpleasant.

I was one of the most vocal around here in saying I would love to see a gow in norse mythology. But there's so much mythology and history in greek mythology that have yet to be addressed in GOW games.So I have no problem whatsoever if this one is 100% in greece..and mind you, we don't even know that yet. The cover art for gameinformer shows Kratos fighting a giant bat, in what seems like a snowy environment. SO I wouldn't be surprised if we see locations outside of greece as well. And I didn't misread, just pointing out the reason for the 'mountains' you were talking about.

see now the MP aspect is just subjective..it could be bioshock ..or it could be like Uncharted. Now I can't even think of a uncharted game on a future sony home console WITHOUT the MP...it adds so much to the overall experience and is a lot of fun. It may not be your cup of tea but doesn't mean we should disregard it as if it's not a big change, when it reality it is. A new challenge to the devs should appreciated, especially when no one has yet to even play it to claim it's not good. I for one have been waiting for a great melee based multiplayer for a long long time. That's why I am really excited for GOW A and Anarchy Reigns. So far the GOW MP seems like it has a lot of depth too which is great to see. You can not change the criteria in criticizing one from the other based on personal preferences like this. It makes no sense.

I think they will make even bigger changes for GOW 4 ..time will tell if I'm right or not

This is so freakin Ironic

I have not seen this pictures, could you post them?

But maybe you are about the MP. I did not played much Uncharted MP but I love the Mass Effect Multiplayer, and perhaps this one will be pretty good, I just don´t care yet. I will buy this game anyway, and I supposse you will as well, and we shall continue this discussion then.



Whoops thought this was Batman thread, didn't realize it was about God of War.
