Anyone gunna get this? I never played the other games but the demo was awesome (don't play these types of games much). The gore was a lolfest as well.
Where to buy from do you reckon? Not going the online option because I want to play this weekend.
jb probably has it cheapest. i want to play the first two before playing this one
I just read up on wikipedia about the story behind the first two parts, figure that should prime me enough to play the third one. As much as I'm tempted to get that pack with the first 2 games, I know theres no way I'll have time to play through them.
From what I can gather its pretty much:
- Kratos betrayed by Ares, kills Ares, replaces Ares
- He doesn't fit in with the other gods because hes such an enormous c***, and Zeus tricks him into giving up his powers and getting him killed.
- He comes back from the dead, kills some chicks that let him time travel or change the past or something.
- He goes back to when the gods were fighting the titans, and brings the titans with him to the current time, and uses them to attack Mt Olympus which is where number 3 seems to start.
Yeah that is the storyline minus the particulars... such as how he came to working for ares, how ares betrayed him, and a few other bits and bobs i wont mention due to spoilers
he's zeus son, he accidently kills athena
They are great games though and well worth playing... The ps3 re-releases of 1 and 2 are well worth it..
How long do the first two take to complete? I heard the second one was pretty long
Khel: A while. I think from memory I took around 14-15hrs to finish it on normal? Slightly less for God of War 1. So if you start now, you'll be right for Thursday :)
Khel, both games took 20 something hours.. which by todays standards i think is pretty long.
woah 20 hrs? the speed runs are a little over 2 hrs for gow1 and a little over 3 hrs for gow2.
i got stuck on gow2 for aaages got so over it that i havnt played it since
first time through, some of the puzzles can stump you.. they are not over the top crazy.. just can get a little frustrating at times... i remember one puzzle in god of war 2 i think it was where you had to push a crate in a room with a timed spike floor.. took me ages to get it down perfect.
Or the time manipulation one in GoW2 when you had to catch the guy before he throws himself off the cliff.. That drove me insane for ages.
Anyone heard if there's some street date smashing going on with GoW3 yet?
when can i play this propperly? (ie on pc)
When we're rocking 5000Ghz Intel I9000s and someone writes a PS3 emulator?
Lets get back to the street date smashing, it'd be really handy if I could grab GoW3 today!
isn't it like tommorrow anyhow?
Yeah, but I wasn't planning on going out to the shops tomorrow, I have to go out today so it would be handy if I could get it this afternoon.
its worth getting out of bed for tomorrow :)
I traded in 3 games for it this morning at JB. I also noticed they were selling it for $88. Cheapest I've seen so far.
I'm still playing Final Fantasy XIII so I just ordered it from CD WOW for like $65.
Very excited though :)
