Spike 2008 VGA, GOW3 Update


So it seems like some more info about Gow3 is beginning to slowly creep out. First we had Jaffe's comments on his blog as well as on Kotaku and now the Spike Tv 2008 VGA announcement of a exclusive first reveal. Well I can say that Dave Jaffe did indeed check out the game at the office. I never really had too many chances to work directly with him since I joined Sony during GOW2 (by then Cory had taken over as the director of the God of War franchise) but it is good to hear that he had some positive comments in regards to the third game.


In regards to the Spike Tv event, all I can say right now is that I feel pretty good about what we are going to show. I really wish that I can go into more detail but perhaps I can talk about it more after December 14. The flood gates of info are beginning to open..............

"So just take this leaked info with a grain of salt. You may not believe what he says, but it's still a pretty damn good wish list (except the part about GoW 3 at the VGA). Here's what he reveals about the game:

* The trailer that will be shown at the VGA will be 10, maybe 20 seconds max. Sucks.
* It will be the new standard in graphics, "easily eclipsing the detail in Gears of War 2 and Uncharted... God of War 3 is set to offer up the most cinematic experiences ever!"
* The game will run at 1080p and 60 frames per second.
* Kratos will not be the only playable character in the game. Gamesblow offers Kratos' brother as a likely candidate.
* Gameplay will be "somewhat the same," but with tweaks.
* "The camera is now placed much closer and everything is bigger and only on "certain" instances does the camera pan way out on you. [...] There are 3 new mechanics to the gameplay engine that drastically alter it for different players."
* There will be an online mode, which will include "Gladiator" and co-op.
* And the cream of the crop: there will be a playable demo for the PSN in the next few months."

Hi Bruno Velazquez.. Can you confirm any of these rumors that been flooting around on the web lately ?

Bruno Velazquez said...

Wow, lots of post lately! Actually the link above was passed around at work today and all I can say is that we had a good laugh. I wonder who his "source" is. As soon as the Spike Tv Awards has passed I should be able to at least discuss what was shown with you guys.

hey, Bruno Velazquesz

Consider HOME is in open beta, do you guys have any plans to do something GOW III HOME related?

Patrick L. Cakirli said...

Hi Bruno..

is the God Of War III VGA Trailer only going to be about 10-20 seconds long ? cause if that's the case than I won't be staying up all night and miss my school the nxt day just for watching about 20 seconds.. :-s

Patrick

Anonymous said...

that's pretty good, but I was looking for more like what Far Cry 2 development team did, using home.

Bruno Velazquez said...

@ Patrick: Hey please don't miss out on school! The trailer will be up on monday everywhere I'm sure, that way you don't have to miss a good night of sleep.

@ Anonymous: I've seen some stuff that WarHawk is doing for Home, I think is a war room were player can discuss strategy before the fight. Who knows, maybe GOW 3 could have some cool Home theme rooms as well. For now we are just focusing on making the best game that we can.

Patrick L. Cakirli said...

@ Patrick: Hey please don't miss out on school! The trailer will be up on monday everywhere I'm sure, that way you don't have to miss a good night of sleep.

@ Bruno: If I promise not to miss out on school :-p can you then please tell me if it's only going to be a short glims of 10-20 seconds or a full-length trailer ? :-p

by the way the reason my english is so bad is because I'm from Denmark and I'm a terrible speller :-S

But anyways the best of luck to you and God Of War in the future

Wow, thanks for all the comments. I'm on Pacific time so it hasn't aired where I live yet. I'll respond to everyone's comments as soon after it has aired all over the US. Thanks for watching (regardless of if you liked it or not) I really want to hear all the feedback since we are still working on it.

ok man, listen here...wha the hell? 40 second trailer? gameplay looks satisfactory...i thought ur suppose to be fighting the gods ...stig asmussen what the f*ck are you doing? u better make this game good cuz i'm not happy from what i saw

Anonymous said...

looking pretty good
but nothing impressive though.

Anonymous said...

come on guys, wait until a hd trailer is released. Then you guys can judge the graphics.

Anonymous said...

Sorry I expected more from a franchise that pushed the PS2 so hard. I didn't expect it to look like the CG trailer, but I did expect more than God of War 2.5

I am not saying it will be a bad game. I am just saying graphically... my mind isn't as blown as it should be.

Patrick L. Cakirli said...

Hi Bruno.. ! :-)

1. Sorry for not keeping my promise about going to school but I just really had to watch the trailer "ASAP" :-)

2. I just saw the VGA trailer! and OH MY FUCKING GOD! KRATOS IS SOooo GONNA FUCK ZEUS SENSELESS IN GOW III !!

3. STFU haters! didn't you just see how kick ass the trailer was! + they are working there butts off just to make us happy so don't bash them for it!!!

4. Bruno don't listen to all of them haters out there cause they obvious don't see the hard work you guys have done so far.. ! over all it was an amazing trailer with some awesome graphics and animation!

The best of luck to you and your team!

Patrick

I will wait to see HD version, but i have to say from distance it didnt look mind blowing.

i didn't like it either...who the hell is directing this crap?

Honestly it didn't look that different:S
But then again it was so brief there wasn't much to see.

Jaffe said what we would be seeing is an early build of the game and not what he has seen!

Anonymous said...

It looked like the PS2 version. I am first and foremost a PS3 supporter and I love the GOW series, but I'm not going to sit here and lie. That didn't even look like a PS3 game. The texture on Kratos close up was super low res.

Patrick L. Cakirli said...

@ Chris: I just turned 18 last month! So I guess I can play God of War AS MUCH AS I LIKE! dumb f*** ! My english is just a little rusty since I'm from Denmark and doesn't speak/write english every day..

Looked fine to me. Besides, this is an early build. Didn't Jaffe already say that the VGA trailer is NOTHING compared to the mind blowing shit that he saw?

it's juz a teaser, so don't expect too much
btw the teaser looks great.

I really don't see what's wrong with the graphics. In fact they are amazing! Keep up the good work!

David Jaffe clearly stated that he didn't refer to the VGA trailer but one shown 'behind doors' just for him..

Anonymous said...

w the end result will look awesome.
Umm I have spike tv and I saw it on HD and it looked pretty damn good. Not mind blowing but definetly not a ps2 game like someone said. PLus I doubt it's anywhere close to being fully developed, most likey in alpha statge. I know the end result will look awesome.

Anonymous said...

way too short to make a strong judgement. gonna wait till there is a better trailer.

doesn't look good...and where the hell are the gods of olympus? wtf is going on...

Quemador said...

Well, i was looking at god of war 2 videos and.... this one look better. if you pay attention, the new graphics look like the hi-def cut scenes in god of war 2, but now they are the graphics for the gameplay ( i hope i am making sense)

Joseph said...

i don't like it at all...wtf is that stig asmussen doing to this franchise...horrible

Bruno Velazquez said...

Hey everyone, thank you for taking the time to post some comments here. The VGA show is now over and I am eager to hear all of the feedback that you guys have. Please log on to PSN right now for an HD (1080 HD!)version of the trailer as it was meant to be seen. I will make a new post soon that further discusses the contents of the trailer. I actually have some specific questions for you guys. Afterall, we are making the game for the fans and we do care about what you think! Thanks.

Quemador said...

Sorry for the double post.. Yo Bruno my man, good job on the animation of the trees, i was looking at the vid that GT uploaded and man, if you paused it (cuz u guys were so cheap and that's the only way to appreciated)you can see a lot of details in the world, kratos need some work, but man the world look crazy dude.. great fucking job on that.

PS: I take back any comment about looking like a ps2 game.

Just take your time to make the game good man, AND PLEASE LET US FIGHT THE GODS IN THIS GAME!!!!!

We all know that this game is going to be amazing although I don't think that this video represent that just yet. I'm a bit disappointed.

People are so picky nowadays...

Anonymous said...

I don't know what people are watching when they are saying the textures look bad. It's because when they see a trailer they automatically think of cutscene footage. This is gameplay footage, up close and it looks amazing.

GuyaneseG said...

Has anyone else then me noticed that in the last few seconds of the trailer (when the title is being shown) the "of" in God of war quickly resembles a 6. which then look like 6f.

Anonymous said...

The trailer was pretty cool.short,but cool.the graphics were sweet.i can't wait to get the game.

Anonymous said...

Yes this game looks epic. It has a horse, a demon, and ten enemies on screen at once! It's a good thing no one was told mere weeks ago that GoW3 would look astonishing, because now the surprise of how amazing it looks has hit me full on, with no hype attached. I certainly appreciate no one affiliated with the development of this game claiming it looks better than Gears 2. And the thing I really admire about this trailer isn't the trailer itself, which looks amazing, but the knowledge that, if it HAD looked like complete shit, the lead designer would have done everything in his power to stop Sony from running it to avoid anyone getting the wrong idea, that's how you know this game is gunna rock.

For the God of War III critics:

Please download it from PlayStation Network before you judge.

Go to psn and watch the 1080p version if you have a ps3. The trailer shown was awesome and I'm sorry that the trailer wasn't longer than 10 seconds but they flipping pay for air time, its not free.

Towards the beginning of the new trailer Kratos does a wall run to an attack... that's awesome. I'm a huge Ninja Gaiden fan and would love to see some moves like this added.

I would actually like to know if this was a early build or not though. The gameplay looked like it's going to be awesome, but I found the graphics a bit underwhelming. Not that I'd call them bad or anything but I was expecting something more amazing.

Looks good, I've downloaded the psn video and it looks really polish. Also, like the others said before me, I like how you get to run up the wall to engage the enemy!
