Some fresh new God of War III scans have been recently published to the internet, and they are looking good. I like how it boasted about it’s use of 100% of the Playstation 3’s power. Saying: “1080p HD + No Loading + Perfect Frame Rate = God of War 3”. The new pics look amazing, the graphics are extremely top notch. Sure the blood may look “meh” and so might the glowing. But the poly count, lighting and animations are amazing.
So far, from the scans, we can tell that there will be no pegasus, no co-op, no multiplayer and no six-axis use. They said that they weren’t interested in the Six-Axis and I don’t blame them, hah. It’s not something really interesting, I think. Also, it may also be worth noting to know that Naughty Dog and Insomniac are helping Santa Monica. Such a beastly team up, if I may say, heh. Also, the scans said that the puzzles have been made easier/shorter so the action could be focused on more. More fighting/less puzzles? Some may like that transition, some may complain that this game will become a button masher though. I personally like what they’re doing with the game. With this game seeing a 2009 release, it will seriously not fall short of anything but amazing. You’re looking at Game of The Year right now, whether it has multiplayer or not…
We all know how much of a slow start the Playstation 3 had. It is a good system, over all, but it had a low amount of good games. A lot of people only got it to play Metal Gear Solid 4 and Little Big Planet. But it seems as if the Playstation 3 is starting to pick up in games. The Xbox 360 has been going strong, with it’s mass amount of hit games and exclusives. But the Playstation 3 is coming out guns blazing, with God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 announced. Those are two obvious GoTy contenders.
Sure, the Xbox 360 is coming out with some good titles too… I think. But from the release list I’ve seen, there’s nothing exciting. They have Final Fantasy 13, yeah, but that’s a multiplat. Most of the games to come for the Xbox 360 is multiplatform. But Playstation 3, on the other hand, is getting Final Fantasy 13 Versus (Another Game of The Year Contender), The Agency (An mmorpg), Killzone 2 (Yet ANOTHER GoTY Contender) and more. The graphics alone on most of those games blow most of the games the Xbox 360 has to offer out of the water.
The hype for God of War 3 is also outstanding. There was an interview with someone, recently, who had a chance to play God of War 3. It was comparable to a movie experience, according to him. The Graphics were amazing, the attention to detail, the animation, the gameplay. Hint at multiplayer. That game will be nothing short of amazing.
I think the Playstation 3 is guarenteed to have the upcoming years owned. The Xbox 360 has it’s work cut out for it. What do you think? Do you think the Playstation 3 will also own the next couple of years? Also, try not to have any bias towards a system, heh. I have an Xbox 360 myself and I am loving it.
Meh, there are some people who are disappointed with the Game of The Year of 2008. I think the Goty 2008 pick was well deserved. Grand Theft Auto 4 has to be my favorite game of 2008 hands down. It has the most replayability that I’ve seen so far, lol. Gears of War 2 was fun, yeah, but the mindless chainsaw fests and camping can get boring after a while. Reeking havoc in the city, in GTA 4, pretty much does not get tiring at all.
What do you think? A lot of people I know have been praising “Little Big Planet” a lot, because it’s a new “refreshing” type of platformer. Honestly, I can’t get into that game. So far, the game I play the most is Grand Theft Auto 4. I’ve been able to hop in, and play offline as long as I feel. I play Gears 2 online, and I end up getting annoyed, heh. People running through my Shotgun shots as if it was nothing, with their revved up chainsaw “going Rambo”. Coupled with the fact that the Matchmaking sucked and took ages during the first week or so of the games release.
All in all, I think Grand Theft Auto 4 was well deserved, like I said. What do you think?
