God of War (PS4)



  • Experienced something that I think was the midpoint, brought a big smile to my face when it happened.



  • I too have been spoiled by casually browsing youtube and seeing splash pictures and video titles. Fortunately the spoiler confirms something I figured would happen anyway, soooo not that bad.

    Definitely getting it next month when I have a little money.



  • @sentinel-beach Oh man thats great, cant wait to hear they different opinions on GoW. I hope they could ask Cory some questions, about the development and stuff. Cant wait to see it, BUT first I have to finish this great game. ^^



  • @el-shmiablo
    You mean the bit when Spider-Man shows up?



  • @dmcmaster I think I know what you're talking about. I honestly had sensations in my stomach at that point, smiling so much. This is. so. good. The whole game.



  • @dmcmaster No no. The part where you fight Batman in the building where they made the ooze that turned him into a Ninja Turtle.



  • Heads up guys and gals, I beat the game earlier this afternoon! I won't spoil anything, but it was amazing. And there's more to do after finish the game. I'll let you all figure that out. Let's just say you're in for many surprises, even when you make it to the half way point.



  • @cocage I like how after the credits roll it throws you right back into the game, but as a kart racer.



  • @el-shmiablo
    That explains why Play Tonic is mentioned on the main menu, Kratos becomes Kartos



  • Does this game have any "forced walking" in it? By that I mean segments where you suddenly can't do any other action such as attack/jump/run and you can only walk and maybe listen to conversation.



  • @sheria Yes, there are a couple. It's nowhere near as bad as games like Gears of War, Ninja Gaiden 3, or Killer Is Dead. It only happens doing some of the main quests, but not during any of the side missions as far as I remember.



  • @sheria
    There's a few, but the few times I've encountered them (like 4 in my 10ish hours) seems to be just before something massive, or for a cutscene with lots of pretty particle effects.



  • That doesn't sound too bad then, sounds a little like loading masking. I'm in a position where I sadly need a new PS4 Pro (4th PS4 now) as my current one seems to have a broken blu-tooth antenna. I'm going to grab a GoW LE from game today then, it's an ok price considering i don't own the game.



  • Be aware even on a Pro it's gonna sound like a jet engine revving up from time to time.

    Just finished it, was honestly a bit surprised at the ending (will post spoiler filled thoughts later once I've collected my thoughts) also loved the post credits scene when returning home.

    I do seriously hope we get some story DLC, there's a few stones unturned I want to see happen, and a few turned that didn't get any real conclusion.



  • Finished main campaign it last night. The game is good, but for it's an Assassin's Creed: Origin or Watch Dogs 2 level of good. Nothing close to The Witcher 3 or The Last of Us. Optional stuff is fun through, so I intend to try to 100% this game.



  • After giving it a little thought there are three scenarios I'd like to see as DLC.
    1.How Kratos left Greece, can't say much in the way of story, but it be a fun "one last romp" thru Greece killing minotaurs, harpies, and maybe kill a lesser god or two (although we never did see Aphrodite die, unless she orgasmed to death off screen or something)

    1. Kratos arrival in the Norse lands, and his relationship with Atreus mother.
    2. A sort of epilogue chapter, that ends with a fight against "Him" while giving a more solid footing for the sequel to start from.


  • @dmcmaster I don't see how scenario 1 works. Kratos flooded and destroyed most of the world by the end of GoW3. There wasn't much left for him to kill.
    From what I underatand, the new game takes placr hundreds of years after the original games.



  • @el-shmiablo
    Like I said I didn't know how to make it work story wise (at least for now) it's mostly just a fan service idea.



  • Finished. This is an outstanding video game. Really satisfying in many different ways. The relationship between a father and his son is presented with great vision and it works extremely well. There's so much dialogue it's pretty unbelievable. And it's all good, too. The story is both touching and exhilarating. As is the world as well, in a way. Both visually and through the told history of it. The fights are incredibly satisfying, they feel so good! I honestly didn't expect this from an axe beforehand.

    There are still lots of things to do in the world, there might be who knows what great surprises waiting to be discovered. Luckily the map system is helpful as it shows how many and what you're still missing in each area. (As long as you've found the first one of its kind.) I strongly feel like I'm going to do it all in this one.



  • In case you watch reviews, be careful of Angry Joe's review. Watched it today and it spoils a pretty big thing that happens halfway through the game.

    I'm a little over halfway and it's still great. Still surprised that I am loving a God of War game.
