What do you think the two unannounced live service games, due to launch by the end of this fiscal year, are going to be?

I'm going with Factions & Arrowhead's project with one of them releasing this year.

I wouldn't consider Factions as unnanounced.

I mean, it hasn't been formally announced either.

That much is true, I think we never even seem a logo or any screenshot. Just that they were working on the MP part of TLOU2 (and I think it should have been released like 1 or 2 years ago) and it is called factions.

I need to play God of War 2018

Still havent played it but I do have it on PS4 lol

I played God of War 1-3 before God of War (2018) all for the first time in 2020.  

GoW 2018 is very different from 1-3. 

I know a few people didn't like it, but I thought it was vastly better. 

Like 8/10 games -> a near 10/10 game.

Those seem like the safest guess.

I don't think we have even gotten "Factions". I think it's just been two memos from Naughty Dog saying "the multiplayer mode has become bigger than originally planned" and "yes it still exists". 

It definitely needs an official announcement. Especially if it's supposed to come out this year.  

It's more evidence of a showcase soon.  Still leaning towards June 10th. Feel pretty good about that date. (and then it ends up coming on the 17th )

I played God of War 1 back in 2007 on PS2 and 2 a few years after it came out on PS2.

I played both of the PSP games as well

Afterwards I bought the God of War Saga and played through God of War 1, 2, Chains Of Olympus, Ghost of Sparta and 3 on PS3 a couple of years ago.

Played Ascension on PS3 shortly after God of War Saga.

1 and Chains of Olympus were great.

2, 3 and Ghost of Sparta were fantastic

Ascension was hot garbage and hated it so much lol

I still rate the older games highly.. especially 3. Though GoW 2018 tops them all by some margin. Also agreed.. Ascension was so mediocre its really not worth a retread; and is simply a story that did not need to be told.

Funnily enough Casually playing through Chains of Olympus now.

Might replay the whole original saga - bar Ascension before Ragnarok hits. its just a shame the games aren't enhanced on PS4. I do have thee games on PS3 and GOW 3 on PS4. Think they are on also on PS Now though streaming sucks and I cba to dig out the PS3. Might try play them on emulation..



Nah, Ascensions is probably the best gameplay and visuals wise. Besides the story and lack of weapon variety (which is meaningless consider the blades are always the most fun in any GoW game anyway) I'd say it's better than 3.
Better locations, better art style, better puzzles, better QTE implementation (if I remember).

COO is very easily the worst game in the series.

That said, I love them all. Just a fantastic series all-round.

I agree. Factions and Helldivers 2. I can't imagine it's anything else.

On an interesting note, with Resistance PSP incoming, how is Sony going to handle online and dlc?

Will the online just be inoperatable? Will DLC be added automatically?

In Resistance PSP's case: it has an alternative story mode that requires a saved file from R2 and having the PSP connected to your PS3. Will they have a alternative solution?

Didnt they confirm the games on PS+ wont have DLC support?
