I've been replaying the series in anticipation of this. Started with Ascension which was the only one I hadn't played yet (outside of that one mobile game or whatever) because by the time it came out I wasn't really too interested in yet another prequel. Got it for cheap now though, so.
I started on Hard mode since it was required for the Platinum anyway. Seemed quite a lot harder than the other GoW games, got my ass kicked so many times.

Now, five games later I'm almost done with GoW 3. For a game that runs in 720p and came out eight years ago it HOLDS. UP. Was briefly considering getting the PS4 Remaster but don't think it's necessary for this at all.

Quite excited for the new one now and how they'll develop Kratos considering the absolute psychopath he is throughout the Greek saga.

The game is reviewing insanely well across the board

I was expecting it to be a good game but didn't really anticipate it being so universally praised with perfect scores left and right.

Also, they misspelled Easy Allies in that image.

I've heard some of the tracks either are spoilery or have spoilery titles, so just beware.

YouTube Video


Regular PS4: wrote: there is the base PlayStation 4, which is capped at 30fps and here, the level of performance is remarkably like the PS4 Pro with the higher resolution option engaged. Frame-rates generally hold steady at 30fps but there are dips in performance during specific sequences, which does reduce fluidity.
PS4 Pro Resolution Mode: wrote: When using checkerboard 4K mode, the game does a reasonably good job of holding steady at 30 frames per second in most scenes, with even intense battles that pile on the visual effects sticking mostly to the target frame-rate with only small pockets of dropped frames. It's not quite perfect though, and some effects-heavy scene will see performance drop. Thankfully, this is more of an exception than the rule and most of the game delivers a stable 30 frames per second, but it's not a perfect lock.
PS4 Pro Performance Mode: wrote: What this mode basically delivers is something more in line with, say, God of War 3 or Ascension on PlayStation 3. The frame-rate averages in the mid to upper 40s most of the time during any skirmish while some of the quieter moments can jump up to or around 60fps.

Yeah I haven't looked at the track titles for fear of spoilers.

Track titles like Kratos And Son Have a Dank Tea Party With the Stuffed Animals? The Talk about the Birds and the Bees?

Son, when a man and two women love each other very much, they express that love through shaking a vase until red orbs explode out of them. And that's where you came from.

There's already a bunch of videos showing cutscenes of the game and one channel is uploading playthrought of the game (currently the first two hours)

If the whole game is as good as the first hour I'm watching, "I'm very impressed" is an understatement .

I hope youtube doesn't decide to spoil me with related videos with spoilers in the title/thumbnail. It loves to do that, and I'm going into this having only watched the first trailer, and that short combat "trailer".

A lot of people reporting exactly that happening.

I use a Video Blocker extension to blacklist shit because of that

Another thing you can do is clean your search history, not sure how much it will help but watching videos unrelated to GoW or gaming should change the algoritms to show you something else on your feed.

After an age of disappointing game releases I seriously cannot wait for this!
