  1. Yeah bit weird isn't it? Rampage was popular at the time but it was kind of forgotten throughout the 90's and 00's. Even something like Frogger is a bigger culture hit. What next eh? A movie about Atik Atac?
  2. No way. The Rock absolutely elevates this film and I've not even seen it. I don't think any other actor could have pulled it off.

    Ha true, I keep noticing that again and again in games ever since it debuted with Uncharted2.

    Yeah, I don't want to overplay the camera not being a continuous shot because the main goal with that concept is to decrease the loading. After playing games like wolfenstein where I had to wait 30-40 seconds after dying or for a new mission to load, GOW really is a technical marvel for just how little loading you have. Shaving those extra 20-30 seconds off loading makes all the difference to me, if you have to wait more than 10 seconds it makes death all the more frustrating and likely to just quit the game/lower difficulty.

    15 hours in I think (There seems to be no stat screens?), already feels like this will be one of my top 3 games of the year. - The (Not so) Bad - Firstly, I'm still a bit confused by all the reviews saying this is setting a new bar and going to influence games going forward. It's not really doing anything I've not seen before, it's essentially a mix of ResidentEvil4, HorizonZeroDawn, TombraiderReboot and Last Of Us. The only new concept is... - The 'continuous camera' concept but really that ends up feeling like a bit of a exaggeration . You get cuts during menu screens and even going through portals etc the screen sometimes goes to pure white. - Personally I'm not a fan of upgrading skill sets that involve learning dozens of new moves. I get overwhelmed by it all. In general there seems to be a bit toooo much that you can upgrade. Again that's just a personal preference. - Menu text way too small even on a standard PS and TV. - The Good - Most of the time it's enjoyable to come across enemies. Really think that's a rare feeling these days, last one to do it for me was DOOM. This is also where I feel it has Resident Evil 4 roots. - For me so far it's really hit that sweet spot of the fighting feeling challenging (I'm on the default setting) like I'm actually working hard to win yet I am still dying from time to time. One battle last night took me 5 attempts, hopefully doesn't go far beyond that (but I'm absolutely worried that it will). There is a general sense of progression and I've actually not got lost at all yet, which for me is amazing (I was even getting lost for a hour or so in SOTC, I'm terrible for getting lost). - Constantly feels epic

    Just read kotaku's spoiler free tips guide for beginners. Really glad I read it. https://kotaku.com/tips-for-playing-god-of-war-1825402320 Am about 5 hours into this now and still can't quite understand the parrying system, even after reading tips on it; "Parrying is like pro-mode blocking. If you can get Kratos to throw up his shield just before an enemy hits you, you’ll parry them, provided it isn’t an unblockable red attack. Parrying is super helpful for managing mobs, since it slows down the pace of incoming attacks and gives you a long window to land a counterattack. Practice parrying early, because it becomes more and more important on tougher enemies later in the game." So it just slows down time? but you don't have any control during the slow motion. Is it really just a case of 'Oh I have 2 seconds to think up what to do after this 2 seconds is over?' or is there some kind of counter you can do?
  7. Yes. I'd say GOW is going to be in the top 3 of the year.
  8. Oh right! Yeah GOW only having 1 more than that sounds bizarre. Review scores can be a mess sometimes.
  9. Yeah God Of War isn't 10/10 material yet (About 4-5 hours in so far), it's basically another HorizonZeroDawn level of game.
  10. What is SOT? All I can think of is SandsOfTime and ShadowOfTheTombraider but without 'The'

    Should be ok. I've heard the camera is a bit awkward in places.
