Yeah what do they want? They would complain if it was completely new stuff, I'm not as excited for the game though maybe that is why know what to expect but still wouldn't mind playing more.


A lot are also complaining that it's another prequel. I don't know where they could have gone after the third game so a prequel works for me. I'm looking forward to it but haven't seen anything that wows me.

What I mean is all the opening to the console God of War games have that "epic moment". Like with Poseidon, Colossus of Rhodes and the Hydra. It's early days yet so I'm sure that'll come in due course. Not sure if they are using any of the Gods again but it's worth keeping my eye on.


Yeah they are good games, people act like more isn't good enough as if more would be a disappointment far from it, I would welcome more it's expected that's probably what it boils down too but in the end what else could they do?

Just got myself a beta key to try the online. I have to use my USA account though as it is for USA only apparently. Still better than subscribing to plus. I'll let you guys know my thoughts once it's done downloading and I play it. My hopes are not high for the online part.

Edit: My thoughts on the beta. This is going to be short.

Design:

I like the backgrounds and the area where you start looks great.

Gameplay:

I've no idea what the hell is going off. Higher level players have better stuff then you so you get destroyed and I can't help but feel it's tacked on. I won't be buying this game for the online and hope the single player is still great although I've yet to see anything to suggest that yet.

Final Thoughts about online:

How many maps are in the beta? Is it all team deathmatch basically?

I think it will be excellent. They are mostly focusing on mp for press but I can't see it harming the campaign. They are a massive studio and typically involved in about a dozen games at any time.

There is a map for team deathmatch and a map for free for all. You can pick from working for Zeus or working for Areas.

Was watching the latest preview videos, it looks excellent. Anyone buying it?

The new secondary weapon system looks pretty cool. It looks like puzzles are more frequent and improved platforming this time around.

I've made a pre order and paid for it. I also played the single player demo that's around 30 minutes long. To be honest it wasn't worth taking the time to download it as it was such a odd demo. Odd in where it starts and where it ends. Still it was fun enough. Looking forward to next week.

I haven't grabbed the demo, its huge and I know I'll like it anyway. What is the Extra stuff that it mentions?

There aren't any demo bonus unlocks for the main game are there?

Youtube videos look like the Last of Us demo requires the GOW Ascension bluray to play.

Not that I know about. Maybe with the multiplayer beta but I don't know.
All I know is about The Last of Us demo and Zeus and Issac for Playstation All Stars been free with new copys in North America. Not sure about anywhere outside of that.

You don't know what the "Extras" are in the demo download then, wwinterj? I wonder if its those behind the scenes videos they put out then.

You still have the demo? If so can you check sometime?

Was reading all multiplayer/coop maps will be free. I'm guessing the season pass will be cosmetic items or they will do campaign add on content.

I'll be giving the demo a miss for the last of us I think. The demo will go live May 31 for those who pick up God of War. Seems pointless messing around when the game would be out a couple of weeks after. Plus with a game like that it might ruin the experience. We shall see.

I went through the demo once and deleted it. I've seen nothing anywhere about in game items been tied to the demo that carry over.

There is however Rise of the Warrior on the official site that unlocks:

Exclusive downloadable weapon and armor sets, only attainable here!
Advance in-game weapon & armor multiplayer unlocks!
First insider looks and exclusive Ascension rewards!

http://www.godofwar.com/en-gb/rise-of-the-warrior/
Season pass could include single player content or multiplayer. We simply don't know but it's good maps are free.

So I got God of War: Ascension through today and not that far into it however this game has serious sound issues. During some cut scenes the sound will just go completely. I've already downloaded 2 patches for the game on day one and now this. It seems to me this game was rushed of of the door with the attitude of "patch it later". Terrible for a developer that used to have such high standards.
