Magics of God Of War

Alright everyone, GDC is all over now and the plan was that we were really not going to reveal any additional info.........................until the leaked footage came out that is! The next big event will be E3 and you guys can expect to see more. For now I would like to continue to get feedback from all of you and the topic of this post will be the Magic from previous games. Much like the previous discussion about weapons, I would like to ask you guys which of the Magics from the previous games were your favorite. Which of the Magics did you use the most? What type of magic would you like to see return in GOW3? I look forward to your comments!

my top 4
hades's army > atlas quake > cronos' rage > head of euryale >

but i guess with rechargeable meter , projectile magic like typhon's bane could be much useful.

godofwar3 said...

i would luv to see hades army too in gow3

EDK1010 said...

As for me, my favorite magic abilities are

Army of Hades
Kronos Rage
Typhon's Bane
Poseidon's Rage
Zeus' Thunderbolt
Atlas Quake
Gorgon heads

I could never really get used to the Gorgon heads. Only found them useful occasionally.

But the Army of Hades and Kronos Rage were the best because they could stun so many enemies at once.

kratosdbest said...

My favourite magic is poseidon`s rage.I also like typhon`s bane.I am glad that they made the fire bow with the rechargeable meter.It can be very useful because it can take out lots of enemies at once.

I dont want them to add the same magics in god of war 3.I want all of the magics to be new.

Army of Hades FTW!.Best GOW magic

Muskrat4893 said...

I really liked Poseidons Rage and Zeus's Thunderbolts. From what I've heard the firebow sounds like a lot of fun and very innovative. But in my opinion the magic in GoW3 should reflect the past games but they have a new twist to them. God Of War style.

Everything must come to an end.

fastkid said...

Army of Hades is my favorite magic in the games so naturally I would like to see that one return with a new feel, maybe the souls actually look different, another feature is they might attack the strongest enemies on the screen first before the weaker ones.

I always used Poseidon's Rage as well so a fresh version of that could be cool. The new fire bow would be awesome especially with the new meter and it will replace the typhons bow and the thunderbolts, I wouldn't want to see two similar magics, they should all be for different situations so we have to resort to all of them in the game like close, middle, and long range magics.

There should be new magic as well to maybe one Kratos comes up with, maybe one that brings the Icarus wings into play, a strong clap of the wings starting electric storms and tornados to throw enemies everywhere as well as electrical damage.

I don't know if you considered the Rage of the Gods/Titans a magic but this feature should be new, maybe Rage of Kratos or something along those lines, something that really brings out what Kratos is feeling in this game and shows his power.

Well im done for now but i'll probably be back with more ideas lol. Game looks great guys keep it up! and please don't rush a thing =)

cronos rage

army of hades

zeus thunder

and if you creat a new magic like

do the earth quake in the cestus
(lion head)
i think this will blown up

Anonymous said...

You should have Army of Hades , Atlas Quakes or Poseiden Rage back and it should be hard to bring all thiss magic back since most likely Kratos will fight Hades and Poseiden and you can just carry over the Atlas Quakes from GOW 2. By the way the game look great cant waith to see more of it.

Anonymous said...

I would really like to see Poseidon's Rage return in GOWIII; the effect on screen was completely wicked. And it would be great if Kratos' would yell like he did in GOWII while using it: "None shall defy me!",and "I will make you suffer!". It just added to his badass nature and really made the player feel like he was messing enemies up.

lalapin said...

Hope new magic will be more strategy or combo oriented rather than pure damage .

GOW_fan said...

Another vote for Army of Hades.
It's the ultimate magic for damaging large crawds(As we know there will be lots of enemies on screen at same time).This time thanks to a much bigger power of PS3 they can be animated to rip peaces from the monster's bodys.That's would be awesome!
Another grate magic is The Efreet magic from GOW:CoO

GuyaneseG said...

For me its:

Poseidon's Rage
army of hades
Atlas Quake
The Efreet magic

Anonymous said...

My favorite are Atlas Quake and Efreet Spell.

Anonymous said...

i would love to see some old majic but along with some new ones i had an idea of ARMY OF TARTURUS idk if i spelled it rite but all the tortured souls would come up and rip them apart but actually have full body apparitons like ghostsand cover u wen ur fighting

Anonymous said...

My tops are:

1. Poseidon's Rage (Easily the most awesome, but over powered GoW magic ever)
2. Rage of the Gods/Titans (I liked how Rage of the Gods made you invincible, but i loved the amount of attacks 'Titans had.
3. Efreet (Most epic magic)
4. Army of Hades (Pwned alot, but costed way too much magic to use)
5. Atlas Quake (Simple, effective, brutal)

I hated Medusa's/Eurayles gaze, never bring it back. And the Ranged attacked weren't epic enough. Try harder on ranged attacks.

I also informed my readers at DestroyOlympus.com that they can post their opinion to you regarding Magic system in God of War.

THIS IS NOMAN---

I want Army of Hades to return, But in different name IT SHOULD BE ARMY OF KRATOS, BECAUSE IF USING AN HADES ARMY IN FRONT OF HADES WOULD SOUND STUPPID AND WOULD'NT MAKE ANY SENSE, BECAUSE THEN HADES WOULD USE HIS OWN ARMY, WHICH IS CALLED ARMY OF HADES.

CESTUS SHOULD ALSO HAVE SOME SECRET POWERFUL SPECIAL MAGIC. LIKE WHENEVER HE HIT COMBOS A METER SHOULD FILL, AND WHEN IT IS,IT SHOULD BLOW SOME KIND OF LASER THROUGH THE CESTUS MOUTH, WHICH WILL BLAST ALOT OF ENEMIES INTO AIR.

INTERESTING HUHHHHHH

I really loved Cronoses Rage. It was an awesome power and it would be cool to bring it back. The head if Helios is a really cool power too. All i know is that all the powers kicked ass and i know that the future ones will too.

Poseidon's Rage:
Invincible and buging magic,lmao.

Nevertheless,positive bugs make game more fun.

It's up to you(yours),Bruno

Anonymous said...

....poseidon's rage was the best for me.^_^ but for some reason, I felt that the carried over version in GOW2 was less powerful and that the duration of the magic got shorter....So I would love to have poseidons rage back in GOW3, EXACTLY like it was in GOW1 if possible.......

atlas quake was awesome, but some of the boulders don't hit the enemies, so its wasting magic, unlike P. Rage where every enemy in range got hit for sure.......bringing this back would be kool, but P. Rage would be better.

KratosTheAlmighty said...

I liked and used Cronos Rage and Posiedons rage most. Typhons bane was ok. I used the tornado type attack often. I really would like to see new magic is this game. Something that will freshen it up a little bit. The refilling ammo idea is great. If u bring cronos rage/posiedons rage back add a few twist to them. I don't want to see the gorgon heads return. I used them the least. I didn't like them at all. I didn't even bother to upgrade them.

the god of war said...

i think the army of hades should be brought back and posiedens rage.

off topic: bruno will the build at e3 be a newer one or the one from the big news from the press conferende form febuary?

Anonymous said...

I really Liked, Atlas Quake, Cronos Rage, Those where my most used in God of War 2. In God of War I liked Poseidens Rage and Army Hades. I didn't use Army of Hades as much as I did Poseidens Rage just because Hades Army killed your magic bar.

These are all good because they kill multiple enemies at once so In God of War 3, I would like to see a magic that can kill multiple enemies, I can live without a Medusa or Eurelya gaze. And an idea just throwin it out there but maybe one of the magics can be like a bomb or something like it. Since you are going to have more enemies on screen.

Anonymous said...

I think to make this game more fun is to implement a good majority of the magics into the weapons. kinda like the Barbarian hammer/Army of Hades combo, but not nearly as crappy. Seriously, wtf was that? I'm saying maybe put Atlas Quake into the Cestus, or put Poseidon's Rage into the Blade of Olympus (which reminds me, bring back the Blade of Olympus and make it epic) but only get it after leveling up the weapons. Never, ever, ever, EVER bring back the gorgon head. It was useless in GoW one, it was useless in GoW2, it's by far the worst magic. The concept was cool, but not practical. If you were to put alot of these magics into other things besides the 4 magic thing, then this game with be fucking epic.

Anonymous said...

My top 3 magics

1:Rage of the Gods/Titans(I hope the animation and attacks would be something new,and Rage of Kratos would be a fitting name)

2:Army of Hades (this blew me away)

3:Efreet (gotta agree with the fans,most epic magic!)

Anonymous said...

I would prefer to see an emphasis on magic that has more of a combat role. My personal favorites were Poseidon's Rage and the long range attacks (lighting / wind bow). Although I rarely used the gorgon heads, GoW III would be gravely incomplete without one. Besides, it's an excuse to have an epic battle with Stheno. Although Army of Hades was powerful it was kind of cheap. It required no strategy. It was useful on the occasion that I was overwhelmed. I made heavy use of Atlas Quake but it also seemed a bit too powerful.

Shitt Romney said...

The rages (cronos, posiedon, gods, titans) and in gow 3 make it RAGE OF (THE) KRATOS. Also, you should make Mr. K chop Zeus's balls off, then fuck some sluts while Zeus watches and whimpers in the corner.

Bruno Velazquez said...

Wow! I am overwhelmed by the great response. Thank you everyone for your comments and a special thanks to PeterK who brought all of his readers over from: DestroyOlympus.com
Be sure to go check his site, is great for GOW fans!

Ok, so far Hades Army (minus the expensive cost), Poseidon's Rage, and Cronos Rage seem to be the most popular.
Some of you guys also liked Atlas and the Typhoon Bow. I personally liked using Efreet on the PSP.

We have some special things that we are working on that I hope you guys enjoy. As some of you mentioned, we already showed the press the new fire bow with the new rechargeable meter. We are definitely trying to mix things up a bit. I know you guys will be happy when we reveal more.

As far as the Medusa head, I have to agree. It was a though magic to use. I will tell you that Helios head is already much more useful and fun to use.

Please keep posting you feedback, I often share this blog with members of the team. Oh yeah, I also think "Rage of Kratos" sounds pretty cool.

Anonymous said...

Yes Efreet magic was very good spell,I like that you can charge it for grater damage by pumping the button(like Atlas quake).
But Army of Hades is the best magic for damaging many oponents and can look very impresive on PS3.
I cannot wait for E3,really want to see more from GOW3

Anonymous said...

Army of Hades, Efreet and Light of Dawn for distance attacks.

I also liked the Sun Shield on PSP where the projectiles were countered. (not really magic I know)

I'm sure you guys will make it worth our while... LOL :D

Anonymous said...

Can`t wait for E3.I really want to see some gameplay and a new magic.I liked the head of helios too.It can be a very useful magic or whatever it is.
If you don`t make the medusa/euryale`s gaze it`s fine because i never used that magic.

I would really like if they make a magic that damages all opponents in range like poseidon`s rage and army of hades.
The "Rage of Kratos is very cool.I hope that they make it.
Anyway keep up the good work.

I'm fan of god of war

in gow2 i don't like when the circle appear on the enemie(satyr),i can not continue the action.

Good luke for all team.

I really liked Army of Hades and Typhoon Bane.

1: Army of Hades (lower cost)
2: Typhoon Bane (recharge meter)
3: Atlas Quake (loved it)
4: Poseidon's Rage (loved it)
5: Euryale's Gaze (needs work)

I used Chrono rage, atlas quake and typhoon bane a lot and never used Euryales gaze.

As for GOW3, there should be new magics and returning ones. I STRONGLY think there should be more than 4 magics...maybe 8?

It's GOW3 and it's the last of his journey and what better way to make things even better, is by having new magic attacks and more than 4.

I would like a trident weapon that does tidal waves and whirlpools that stun enemies. Not a weapon trident but a magic weapon like Typhoon Bane which was a bowarrow but not a weapon.

An ice spell that freezes enemies, the unused original ice magic concept from God of War 2, that was scrapped, showed in the E3 demo.

A spell that summon branches to torn and quarter an enemy. An idea I had was called Nature's Revenge or even a venus-fly trapper.

There should be a meteor spell? A spell that summons lightning to strike from above - it shoots down.

*** What about Stheno? we got to battle her and she'll prob be a boss with magic attack. Re-design and you should improve the Gaze spell***

* I really like the Fire Bow (Prometheus Bane? :P) and the Cestus - amazing. Loving the red-glow-ey blades.

The magics that are to be installed in the GOW3 should be strategically placed like the Cestus weapon. Magics that each have a stronger purpose than previous games.

The Gorgon stares were no where no as useful as other spells. I love the idea and concept of the spell but not the way it functions. It's tooooo slowwwww.

Keep up the good work! xxx

forkandknife said...

I feel like the bow shouldn't lock on to enemies completely, because that seems to be too simple, easy, and less fun. If there was some type of basic aiming or positioning you controlled to align a shot and get a clean hit, I feel it would be more fun and intuitive.

Anonymous said...

I think POSIEDEN'S RAGE and CHRONOS' RAGE were the best because you could attack many enemies at once. Most useful were:
1. Chronos Rage
2. Posieden's Rage
3. Army of Hades
4. Efreet/Atlas Quake
Most fun to use were army of hades, typhons bane (after upgrades) and Chronos Rage.

Some magics were unorigninal like Light of Dawn, Eurayles head and Charons Wrath, so it would be great to see something completely origninal.

The idea of Kratos ripping of Helios' head and using it was awesome. Also the 'rage of kratos' idea is good, this should give kratos a mega-boost better than rage of titans/gods.

It would be cool to see Kratos commanding natural elements, like fire, water and air, so he should use magic on a much larger scale. The upgrade of Rage of Gods/titans could allow kratos to do these things.

Anonymous said...

I think you should double the amount of magic spells available, but one thing I want to see personally is a better "rage of the Gods/Titans/ whatever". Really work on that one. RotG was cool it felt really powerful to use, but it's flaw was it could only be used once in a while. RotT was cool and had some cool attacks, but it lacked the invincibility that RotG had. Do something awesome. Show what a fully pissed off, full god kratos is capable of.

EDK1010 said...

* Before I begin I'd just like to say this is off topic from the "favorite magic" discussion *

Bruno, I was looking around on the forums, and it seems that people can't appreciate the game, or its graphics. One example is how they complain that the chains on Kratos' arms are 2-D and should be more 3-D

So instead of them wasting their precious time asking one of the game creators why its like this, I will. So why are the chains 2-D?

( of course in my opinion they look fine to me )

Manoj .P. JB 007 said...

Hello Bruno,

My favorite magic was Atlas Quake simply because of the way Kratos looked while smashing up the ground. Though the middle phase, where he just summoned small rocks only served to increase his invulnerability for me, if you could have him smash up more earth with each knock during that phase, it would be better.

Second would have to be Army of Hades, because you could also add to the damage with your own attacks, though the cost was too high. If it could be made cheaper, and maybe weaker to compensate, it would be better.

Third was Poseidon's Rage because it too looked awesome and could attack a lot of enemies, especially with the way it is cast by Kratos in God of War II pre-power drain (with quotes as well).

Though by far the magic I used the most was Cronos' Rage, it was cheap and it could knock back some enemies at level 3.

I'd love to see a magic that could make enemies attack each other leaving you to attend to other, perhaps more pressing matters.

Additionally, a magic that could somehow make Kratos able to turn larger, sort of like a throwback to his days as a god would be cool. He'd be able to knock back enemies like the cyclops. The magic bar would have to constantly drain to restrict this ability.

My choices for magics to be brought back would be

a) Atlas Quake
b) Army of Hades
c) Charon's Wrath
d) Poseidon's Rage
e) Cronos' Rage
f) Titan Storm from Typhon's Bane in the new rechargeable bow (Sweet Concept)
With some form of customization allowing you to essentially mix and match and come up with your own combinations of magics to use.

Cheers.

Andy said...

My favorite magicks were:

1)Poseidon's Rage: it was a good defense/offense magick. Radial attacks just make me feel so...safe!

2)Gorgon Heads: Though probably not anyones' ideal attack, I'd say for the sake of rounding things out, let's use the head of the third Gorgon sister in this game: Sthena.

3)Blade of Artemis

4)Army of Hades

5)Rage of the Gods+Banking ability from Rage of the Titans would be a good idea.

I wasn't particularly impressed with any of the magicks from the second game, except maybe the Atlas Quake.

fastkid said...

I don't think that there should be two types of electrical magics like P. rage and C. rage, they are different and all but they do still have a similar feel and i think they should all feel completely different to not be to repetitive. The heads from the previous games were pretty useless till i played on the harder difficulties which it became useful more often, but i like the Helios head so thats good. Maybe an idea for a new army of hades is after kratos kills hades he takes over the souls and it becomes army of kratos or something of the people kratos has killed

.... and you really need to add a HERCULES FIGHT!!!! you guys would be awesome to put that fight in there, so let the crew know Bruno ;)

Anonymous said...

I would like to see the "returns" of:
Poseidon's Rage, Army of Hades and finally either Cronos's Rage or Charon's Wrath.
The last magic should be a ranged one, although I have no particular favourite there...

Anonymous said...

My favorite was Army of Hades, because it was able to target a whole room full of enemies. It made fighting hordes of zombie legionaries quicker, and even if it didn't kill stronger enemies it could at least keep them occupied and off my back for a few seconds; very convenient if there happened to be a chest in the area and I could recharge my health or magic. The biggest downside was that it consumed so much magic that I was only able to cast it a couple times.

In a similar vein, Atlas Quake could do big damage to multiple enemies and had the added bonus of making Kratos invulnerable during the animation sequence. I was able to use it on many occasions to save myself from a damaging attack.

I like the Head of Medusa/Euryale, particularly with the instant flash attack. Launch an enemy and flash for instant death and red orb bonus. But I think having them in this game would feel a little stale.

I don't know how the game's plot and levels progress. I assume that you fight and kill various gods along the way? I've seen some reports that Kratos kills Hermes and takes his winged sandals. That could bring Army of Hades of Poseidon's Rage back into play if Kratos squares of against either of them. Maybe something like Apollo's bow for a ranged weapon.

Anonymous said...

Kratos should be able to control nature, his power should be much stronger than the previous games. It would be great to see more rechargable meters like the fire bow, but still maintaining the blue orbs.

GOW_fan said...

I was reading the comments and found one one about the graphics...I would like to ask the same about the chains on the Kratos arms.In the released screens they are 2D texture.Can we hope that in the Kratos final model they will be 3D,or at least using some technic like parallax maping to make them looks 3D?
Thanks.

EDK1010 said...

DX aw, that was totally my idea, parallax mapping. Are you from the GOW3 forums?

Nir said...

It'll make no sense for any of the GoWI magic to return, as they had been granted by the gods who are now fighting Kratos.

But still, my favorites were:

1. Medusa/Euryale head, I found it very useful in GoWII. In my opinion, this magic HAS to make a return.

2. I liked the bow from GoWII, but its use was very limited; it's either that certain situations forced you to use it, and anywhere else it was useless. Now that I'm hearing about the fire bow's ability to spread fire among enemies, I have hope in this weapon.

3. Poseidon's Rage, the effect was just awesome.

4. Army of Hades was cool, but it could be cool if the souls hadn't just held the enemies in the air. If they can actually push them around, it will be awesome.

GOW_fan said...

In fact I don't know if parallax mapping can be applied on the charaster models,I'm just guessing...The important thing is the chains too look 3d ;)
And yes I posting in gow3forums :)

Manoj .P. JB 007 said...

@ Nir

Killing the gods that you are fighting and then gaining their abilities would make perfect sense. The developers could also add the magics like they did for Poseidon's Rage in Bonus Play in God of War II. I'm sure they'll come up with something unique and clever.

Just to clarify, the sweet concept thing was referring to the fire recharge bow.

@ fastkid: If I had to pick between Poseidon's Rage and Cronos' Rage as they are both electrical in nature, I'd go with Cronos' Rage, as it'll make more sense in-game with respect to the plot, it is more strategically useful, and it has a lower cost.

Krat0s9001 said...

I always used Army Of Hades & Posesidon's Rage during the first game. I came up with a combo too. Cast AoH then PR.

John said...

I have an idea for the magic system: each of the four spells should have two forms. For example:

When you press the left directional button to select Helios's Head, you should be able to press it again to select the head of the third Gorgon sister (assuming you get her head in the game).

When you press the right directional button to select Poseidon's Rage, you should be able to press it again to select Cronos's Rage.

And if you select Cronos's Rage, then switch to Helios's Head, when you press the right directional button again you'll automatically select Cronos's Rage (instead of having to press it twice each time).

Okay, those are kind of poor examples, but you see what I mean. Having eight spells would be WAY better than four, and with a 50 GB Blu-ray at your disposal, I don't see why not!

Andy said...

Well, I did like the concept of having my powers stripped from me, like at the beginning of GoW II, even though my cool powers were replaced with lamer, less effective, powers. Perhaps Kratos will have to give back the magicks bestowed onto him by the Titans, and given powers from somewhere else, either taken from the gods, or, dare I say it, given to him by THE God.

Xcalibur said...

Hi Bruno,

This is kind of off topic but I hope this guy gets proven wrong

lastpanzar said...

I don't care so much what magic specifically makes it into the final product because I trust that you guys will make some good decisions. The only thing that I ask is that it's relative to the new storyline and that it is totally and completely over-the-top, especially at the end game(and subsequent playthroughs). As I remember, Kratos is still the "God of War" and his skills should be representative of this especially at their full power. This also applies to the weapons that you provide us with. Being that he is a god, his powers should be totally overpowered at the end game and beyond, that's all that I ask.

Tyler said...

How about something new that changes the gameplay style a little bit? Such as,,, a spell that temporarily makes Kratos twice his normal size... or, one that confuses close range enemies, so they temporarily fight for you instead of against you (ha, cupid's arrows?). Or even a time manipulating option (Prince of Persia: SOT-esque), like slowing enemies/Kratos super speed...,,, a simple defensive weak knockback spell could be good - with so many enemies it would make a good way to clear some space for yourself... later upgrade to a stun/more damage... could bring more elements into it too - you've done earth, fire, and electricity, what about water and air? A return tribute to old spells is cool and all, but with the power of the ps3, lets see something new to the series and keep it fresh, and cool looking.

lastpanzar said...

I agree with what Tyler said about the system and implementing something new that SLIGHTLY tweaks the gameplay. Of course the idea of new elemental magic and rehashes of the old versions is great, but I was thinking of something even slighter than that. For instance, the new "Rage of .....(Kratos*)" special. Along with what Tyler said, what if you guys implemented a slow time effect during the rage magic and allowed us to go around to all the peons/meat fodder and have 1 button QTE's where Kratos instantly annihilates them and it could possibly extend to some of the tougher baddies as well. This is all on top of the different move set we all know and love that Kratos usually makes. Something like that could possibly lend to the raw, visceral, over the top action that I know you guys are going for.

I also have a quick question for you. Being that were now commenting on the magic system and have already gone through this process with the weapon system, can you give us an idea of how some of those comments were put to use(if any) for the wep. system and whether or not they had any bearing on the progressing design? I know that it's off topic, but I just wanted to get a sense of how you guys viewed our comments.

i think army of hades should come back and zeus thunder boltz and the urns should come back as well

Anonymous said...

I seldom used magic when playing GOW but when i do, the ones that i used the most were atlas quake, Poseidon's Rage and Army of Hades. what do i want for GOW3? well, some awesome area of effect magic, maybe something of the fire element (i dont suppose GOW 1 and 2 had it). the magic would have fantastic animation and stuff. but then again, magic, IMO is just eye candy. we all want to slice and dice enemies with the blades :D

Anonymous said...

for the magic i think they should defiantly bring back the magics from each game from chains of Olympus to gow 2 and use they kind of magic system john described but with all of the magics like they can be given back to u we you kill a certain you'll get three or four old ones back like this

Hermes:
the efreet
light of dawn
charons wrath
sun shield(just cuz it would be cool if he could defend with it and use it with the golden fleece and do a double parry)
and of coarse Hermes winged boots

Helios:
Poseidons rage
zues' fury
army of hades
blade Artemis(i know not a magic)
and of coarse Helios head

poseidon: it would skip so you had a chance to upgrade all the stuff

Hades:
typhon's bane
kronos rage
atlas quake
spear of destiny(i know not a magic either)

and kratos should start out with the blade of Olympus and have it throughout the whole game already charged

p.s. kratos should have a super strength system like you can pick up a boulder and throw it at the enemy or rip a column from the ground swing it at them until it crumbles im saying this because you see kratos super strength in the god of war 2 game but its only if its when your pounding on a button to make it happen or a button combo so you id like to see some super strength you could just use the grab button (circle) near a large item and pick it up and use it for combat i hope the creators of the game see this and put it in the game cuz it will make every god of war fan out there happy.....that is all

Anonymous said...

I think you should have a bunch of new magic, unless you find a way to incorporate more than 4 magic. but since your asking for which powers we'd want from previous titles, I'd say..
- Poseidon's Rage or something similar, or Cronus' Rage
-I'd say Typhon's Bane, but since you have the fire bow, scratch that.
-Atlas' Quake was awesome, also like Poseidon's Rage just something with an area affect.
-Again I'd say a Medusa type head but it could be Stheno's Head, but if you have Helio's head, then nevermind
So that's pretty much all I care for!

i say do what the kid said at April 9, 2009 6:56 PM and April 8, 2009 3:17 PM about the magic system because this i the last of the god of war games so i want everything magic that reminded me of the whole god of war series in god of war 3 and even some new weapons and magic. not only that but i think it would be very interesting to see a super strength action in the game i mean it seems possible to do in the game you can just press circle button to pick up an enemy and press circle near a large object (boulder,column,tree,a piece of the ground)and you can pick that up i know that's not a magic but that should certainly be an action in the game

Anonymous said...

YEA !!! instead of a specific ones why not put all the magics in god of war 3 and just kick them up a bit and .......ABSOLUTELY SUPER STRENGTH FUNCTION !!! XD THAT WOULD BE ILL to see

kingofgames said...

oh my god yes !!!! please take April 9, 2009 6:56 PM and April 8, 2009 3:17 PM's ideas and make it happen cuz i mean why choose a few magics all of the magics are epic !!! use all of them magic and super strength ideas ! plllllllllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaassssssssseee

Anonymous said...

Okay so I already posted a comment; i'm April 8, 2009 3:17
and I would like to say that by "unless" i meant "if" just to clear that up.
Also, I think the super strength idea is cool but it's not necessary. I mean he can already lift doors that weigh a ton and he's killed 2 gods.
So since I've read up on what you're doing with the fire bow (having an additional rechargeable bar) I think that takes care of any fire magic, unless you have anything EPIC for fire. I would still like to see Stheno's head just because it would keep to tradition, but I'm not picky!
Definitely I think an ice spell would be cool-
In other words, your four types in the past have basically been: Head of Gorgon, Electricity Magic, Area Effect, Range Magic. So since the range magic and Head magic have been taken care of (unless you're planning on adding Stheno's Head) then you should definitely add an Ice Spell, or you can still place magic following that template, and introduce more relics that have magical abilities!
Sorry, I just felt like getting all that out of my chest!

For me, I'd prefer to have Posiedon's rage as it could fry your way through your enemies.

Like the others suggested, rage of the gods/titans/kratos is also useful i.e a timed/controlled interval when kratos's attacks are much more powerful.

Atlas's quake (could be done with the cestus instead i.e the cestus could it the ground, the weapons auto-switch to the cestus, hit the ground (and extending attack by pressing O O many multiple times) and then auto-switch back to the weapon used before.

The power to go back/forward in time, as Gaia said @ the end of GOW 2, so the function could be like using the amulet of the fates, but he could like fast-forward (like run/move/attack faster) or 'rewind' like re-trace you steps).

Maybe @ the end of the game, magic to become a gaint like Zeus and the other gods to help combat the titans.

What about a combination of all the past games' magics? Used and lost with the death of every god/titan>

How about Kratos using the sword of olympus to kill more gods and then somehow finds out a way to release the energ from the blade, giving him not only his strength, but the strengths of athena, some of Zeus' and strength absorbed killed with the blade.

masterofgames09 said...

I agree with the idea the kid had at April 8, 2009 3:17 PM and April 9, 2009 6:56 PM just cuz those are the best ideas for this game!!! cuz I'm a HUGE DIE HARD GOD OF WAR FAN and not just me but a couple of people agree on these ideas as well. I mean seriously Kratos should of had a Super Strength function in the first 2 games because through out the game we caught glimpses of his super strength but you never actually got to use this ability in combat just in puzzle solving. As for the magic i want to be reminded about the past God of Wars by putting all the past magics in this game. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PLEASE!!! PUT THESE IDEAS INTO THE GAME because from what im looking at I'm not the only one that agrees with there ideas. I think you can pull it off with the technology of the PS3 so again PLEASE DO THIS!!!

slayerMANnnnn said...

i know thats such a great idea please put that stuff in the game those ideas from April 8, 2009 3:17 PM and April 9, 2009 6:56 PM sound soooooooooo bad ass !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bruno Velazquez said...

Thanks to everyone that responded to the Magic discussion, the feedback was great. All I can say is that we have some pretty cool things in store for the magic system in general. I agree with the comments that the medusa heads have been though to use in the past and we are working on making all of the new magics very useful and fun to use. Expect to see some new changes to the magic system in general!

@EDK1010 and GOW_fan: As far as the chains are concerned, I feel like making them fully 3D would make them look better. Keep in mind that everything you see is a work in progress until the finla game comes out so the chains can still change.

@Xcalibur: Well all I have to say is that I played RE5 and RE4 and while I think they are both execllent games, I did feel that RE5 was just RE4 with better graphics and co-op gameplay. Now, GOW 3 is not going to completely revamp the GOW franchaise by turning into a racing game or a FPS but I can say that we are adding enough new things to keep if fresh.
@lastpanzar: I'm responsible for animating Kratos so all of your comments do not fall on deaf ears......

The idea of super strenght sounds interesting......

Thanks for all the comments once again. I'll make a post in regards to the recent survey in regards to a Collector's Edition of GOW3.

superkratos09 said...

AWESOME !!!! so does this mean you are gunna put super strength in the game along with all the magics ESPECIALLY the super strength ? cuz thats such a good idea and im glad that you think thats an interesting to put in the game cuz all of us definitely think its an awesome idea

GuyaneseG said...

sweet, thanks for the update Bruno.
Cant wait to hear your thoughts on the collectors edition

brutalfighter123 said...

I think it would be cool to have super strength, and the past magics plus new ones! You should also have new relics

Bruno Velazquez said...

All new Magics and Relics will be in for sure.

james merone said...

I would like to see Typhon's Bane, Poseidon's Rage, Wind bow and Cronos'Rage.

Anonymous said...

This guy is right:

I want Army of Hades to return, But in different name IT SHOULD BE ARMY OF KRATOS, BECAUSE IF USING AN HADES ARMY IN FRONT OF HADES WOULD SOUND STUPPID AND WOULD'NT MAKE ANY SENSE, BECAUSE THEN HADES WOULD USE HIS OWN ARMY, WHICH IS CALLED ARMY OF HADES.

CESTUS SHOULD ALSO HAVE SOME SECRET POWERFUL SPECIAL MAGIC. LIKE WHENEVER HE HIT COMBOS A METER SHOULD FILL, AND WHEN IT IS,IT SHOULD BLOW SOME KIND OF LASER THROUGH THE CESTUS MOUTH, WHICH WILL BLAST ALOT OF ENEMIES INTO AIR.

Comon bruno please put this into gow3 : this is a real nice idea

what do u sayy comon guys help me on this comment

godofgods said...

bruno are you gunna put in super strength ? because that seriously is an awesome idea and everyone like wants that in the game including me please tell me and the rest of us your putting that in the game

WAT DU YU SAY BRUNO

ARMY OF KRATOS IS THE BEST

Anonymous said...

i wish that we could do some trick and moves of satry champions from gow2 in god of war 3.

Thelvyn said...

This is really hard choice for me to make, but to limit it down I am going to list my top three favorite magics from the video game series.

Army of Hades - When I got this magic spell straight from the horned monstrous Hades I immediately fell in love with it. I used this spell that summons several cursed souls that take on large numbers of enemies. This spell seemed weak in its first level, but when I upgraded it to its maximum level this spell is unstoppable unleashing a massive wave of spirits from Hades to aid my fight against foes. Seeing the swarms of wraiths attack my enemies to tear them to pieces was quite enjoyable. Without this spell the evil Kratos copies in God of War in God Mode are impossible to defeat. The battle against the Kratos counterparts was the best highlight in the entire first game for the usage of Army of Hades.

Cronos Rage - While I enjoy Poseidon’s Rage, Cronos’ Rage while similar to Poseidon’s Rage is a vast improvement. What makes Cronos’ Rage a better spell than Poseidon’s Rage is that Cronos’ Rage allows for the creation of three orbs of lighting that may be used to target specific foes. These orbs slow down and paralyze enemies allowing Kratos to attack the enemies even while they are still under the weight of the spell. In its maximum level Cronos’ Rage is even more of a threat to Kratos’ enemies with the orbs exploding after unleashing their lighting causing brutal injuries towards his foes. I cannot tell you the number of times that Cronos’ Rage saved me from being defeated at the hands of legions of foes. The best spell of God of War 2 for taking on squads of enemies that is mostly used.

Medusa’s Gaze or Head of Euryale – Whatever the name using the head of a Gorgon to turn your enemies into stone statues is an iconic standard of the God of War video games. This spell allows in its first level for Kratos to use the Gorgon Stare to specifically target his enemies to turn to stone. Rendering his enemies stone statues Kratos is then given the opportunity to crush them into dust before the spell loses its potency on his enemies. In its second level Kratos may use Gorgon Flash to turn multiple enemies to stone with but a glance of the Gorgon’s head. At its peak this spell allows Kratos to fire a Gordon Blast that turns all his enemies in the area to stone. This spell works best against Minotaurs, but it comes in handy against other enemies as well. A must for a God of War video game, here is hoping it returns as Stheno’s Visage!

Army of kratos sounds great!!!!!!!!!!!
Plus the Satyr champion moves from their own axe and double-bladed staff could be usefull for kratos's one of the main weapons in GOW3.

Army of kratos sounds great!!!!!!!!!

and Satyr champion moves from gow2 good and perfect rendered into gow3 will be the sweetest idea ever., ohh yea Satyr champion moves should be kratos's moves in the this game and the double bladed staff too should be Kratos's new weapons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kn1ght912 said...

I would honestly prefer if they would combine Poseidon's Rage and Cronus Rage after all they are both electrical. I was thinking the magic could be used like the bow you could press the L2 button and tap the square and triangle which would leave an attack like Cronus Rage and tap the circle button would give you an attack like Poseidon's Rage. Also the Army of Kratos Magic sounds great that sounds like fun great idea.If there's enough disk space I hope all the magics from the old games are unlock able, kind of like the urns from God of war 2. Especially army of Hades and Poseidon's rage, and the wind bow. As for returning weapons I only care about the sword of Olympus hopefully re released with more tweaks and combos. thanks and keep up the great work I love the god of war franchise.

this guy is right:

there should be customizable armor. Here is an example, kratos should have different sets of armor helmets, gloves, chest plates and leggings and the sets of armor have to be fully customizable from color to the overall design (nothing over the top or informal)
