GOW3 Media Event

Last week we held a media even in Hollywood CA and I just wanted to share with you guys some video and photos from the event. I was honored to be interviewed by HipHopGamer himself along with some of my colleagues, Cecil Kim (Lead Concept Artist), Max Ancar (Lead FX Artist), and Chris Sutton (Lean Environment Artist). It was fun to meet people from various parts of the world, including Latin America and Japan, that came out to cover the game. We showed the first 20 minutes of the game and the response was great so far. I really can't wait until everyone has a chance to play! In the mean time enjoy the interview and the trest of the photos.

Yours truly with the HipHopGamer!

GOW 3 is the greatest game ever!

Max said...

Hello there!

I have watched the gametrailers footage many times and was wondering if you could answer me this question:

The L1+Triangle move that we have in the demo, is it the same in the final game or did you guys change it back to the way it was in GoW2? I really hope you kept the demo version with the cool charge ability.

Thanks!

The gameplay from the "fear Nothing" trailer is mostly there but at the same time mixed around in a different way. Look for certain moments in the game to be similar.

The moves in the demo are GOW3 moves. You start the game with full level GOW2 blades, so both moves are in the final game.

Haha, yeah Endless, thats me with the glasses and HipHopGamer.

That is a shot from the start menu in GOW3. Soon you guys will be able to see that screen at home and be able to hit the start button yourselves!

oh man,I can't wait too see that menu on my screen and press new game :)

OH MY GOD OF WAR BRUNO!!! Those God of War III stand ups and poster are PHENOMENAL!!!! Kratos looks absolutely beastly, especially on the hanging poster!!! Man I wish I could get both the wall hanging and the stand up!! Any chances they will be purchasable and not go inside the offices at Santa Monica??? Pretty please?? hehe

Also, CONGRATS TO YOU AND THE ENTIRE TEAM!! I know releasing a game is a tremendous feat, especially one as grand as GoW III!

P.S. OMGOW!!

lol nice stuff Bruno looking real gangsta with the Belt and HHGamer..
I can't imagine how uncomfortable that guy makes you feel in person... It seems like people just kinda put up with him from the goodness of their hearts. Personal space is not a concept he learned through his lifetime it seems.

EDK1010 said...

Hey Bruno. I was reading the review for God of War 3 from the Official Playstation Magazine, and it said that they didn't like the ending!
How could they not like it? Were you disappointed with the ending?

Quemador said...

hahaha damn Bruno what's with that Gangsta posse?...lol, congratulation you guys deserve to have fun.

EDK: you can't make everybody happy, and Bruno already said the ending is epic, so my money is on bruno's words.

"When do we get emailed the skins?

Anonymous said...

Hi bruno! congrats! just saw the video, you are a very kind guy, my compliments to you! My questions about the ending:
Is that the same ending that David Jaffe wanted to have 7 years ago or is it a different conclusion of the trioligy. and if it`s an other ending, what was the first idea (Jaffe`s)for the end?
please answer, thanks

zagor said...

Hi Bruno! how about a Zagor game?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zagor

would be awsome!

EDK1010 said...

Wow. WOWWWWWWWWWWW

I just saw BOTH introductions to the game. (One was a refresher of God of War 1 and 2)

Oh MAN! Everything looks INCREDIBLE!!!

Bruno, tell everyone to give themselves a pat on the back. Just the intro alone is 10/10

Simply cannot wait.
And for those of you who cannot wait as well, here are the videos I speak of.

Hola Bruno,

Primeramente, muchas felicidadez a ti y a todos en Sony Santa Monica!! Aun no puedo jugar el jugo, pero yo se que hicieron un trabajo magnifico.
Ya ordene dos copias; la Ultimate Edition, y edicion original oh y el libro de guia limitado.

Dumb people that reviewed the game in UK, it could of gotten a 10 but a 9 is just as good. They had claimed that it was TOO BRUTAL for them, haha...thats what Kratos is all about. Anyway, I would like to know:

When upgrading your other weapons(non-magic) will you be able to take a good advantage of all the Epic moves? -What I mean by that is that on some games, you would get a weapon almost at the end of the game & by the time you upgrade it its the end of the game. Just want to know if thats the case here?

Congrats again and I'll be back to let you know what I think of the Game once its out, and hope other fans will be back aswell. Its very interesting to read what others have to say bout God of War.

Quemador said...

Hey Omega if you dont mind me asking, why did you order two version of the game? because i already order my UE, but there is a store in my city who has the game this Wednesday...umm Dilemma

OmegaAlpha said...

@ Quemador

Two versions of the game:
(1st) UE is my copy (pre-ordered when it was announced).
(2nd) original copy for my brother to play on his PS3(pre-ordered last month)

I know this game is going to pull me in so much that I'm not going to let anyone else play, 'till I play it to death...so the other copy is not for me. Hope I answered your question.

hi Bruno
and we should believe this???
i remember as gow2 was finished, Cory said that he doesn`t know if a third one will be made...about a year later when the game gow3 first was anounced, they said that before the release of the second one the third game was already in development...and know this:

GOW3 New Ultimate Reviews Vol1 from FAMITSU Scans

http://e3.endless.com.cn/html/tvgame/ps3/news/2010-03/06/234236aac40316a1047073.htm

This is just Vol1.There will be 6 volumes in all.We'll update Vol2 next week.Stay tuned and enjoy!

Bruno Velazquez said...

I think the ending of GOW3 is a great ending, and a fitting end to the trilogy. I read another review (It hasn't been released yet) in which the reviewer really like the ending. I think people will really like it or really hate it but I don't think it will impact the game as a whole. After all OPM still gave it 5 stars.

I don't know when skins are being e-mailed.

Honestly I don't really know what Jaffe's idea was for the ending of the trilogy since he didn't direct the games after part 1. I'm sure he would have been satisfied with the riginal ending in part GOW since that was a very solid ending. When Cory took over he always intended for there to be 2 more games to complete a trilogy so I know he had a defenite ending in mind for GOW3. As you se he decided to have part 2 end in a huge cliff hanger. Now for GOW 3 Stig came in and brought his own unique vision and took some of what Cory had layed out but completely made it his own. Stig has been with Kratos since GOW 1 so he has a great understanding of the character and the franchise. The ending in GOW 3 is Stig's vision which is diffrent from what Jaffe would have done and different from what Cory had in mind as well. Regardless of this if someone played all 3 games back to back and didn't know that each was directed by a different person they would not be able to tell since the story all flows so well from begining to end, as if it was just one director behind the whole thing.

By the end of the game you will need all the weapons, items and magics just to stay alive. The game is designed so that they are all useful!

We have an idea of what we will do next but none can really expect us to talk about before we even relase GOW3.

Just a recomendation: The game is less than 2 weeks away and all I would like to say is that if you guys really want to get the best experience out of playing GOW3 then please avoid spoilera at this point. You guys have been patient enough and I honestly think there is way too much info out there. thanks for the comments and I can't wait to hear your feedback once you play the game!

Anonymous said...

Thanks Bruno for answering our questions!
It would be interesting to hear Jeffe`s and Cory`s versions of the ending in a few weeks (after beating the game)...
I knew you guys won`t resting on yours laurels!i will buy the game:-), thank you so much for making great games!
one thing more: can you give us a date when you will give us more info on Atlantis, after the release perhaps?
Thanks Bruno!

EDK1010 said...

Sorry Bruno, I really, REALLY want to stop looking at spoilers, but for some reason I can't stop myself! It's so frustrating!

Jon said...

I'm avoiding spoilers like a super model avoiding carbs. The only question I have for you bruno is: If you were Kratos would you go to war with olympus?

Anonymous said...

Bruno i have a wuestion... in the first 10 minutes when kretos is fighting on gaia (epic) and he uses a power or magic that is tornado like< what is that?

the tornando that ur talking about is a magic from the blade of olympus similar as the tornando that ended the greate war in god of war 2 cutscene but this is a smaller one

OK thanks taif..i was thinking about that because i remembered something like that with the blade of Olympus

Hey Bruno, is there a "God Armor" bonus costume in this game?

zagor said...

Hi Bruno, please tell me how to resist??? how to avoid spoilers??? the only way is if Sony would release the game already tomorrow...but one whole week till the release is to long to resist watching gamplays and reading spoiling rewievs...it will be a hard week for me! don`t knoe how...

oh my god !Bruno...please kill the spoilers!!!

someone is already posted the ending on youtube....
I fu*king hate spoilers!!!

why sony doesn't do something to stop or ban the spoiler~
Spoiler make us suffer!!
(sorry for my English)

EDK1010 said...

I know! Somebody was posting the end of the game spoilers on a FORUM! I don't know the whole thing, but now I know a bit. Why can't people just put

"END OF THE GAME SPOILERS!!!"
in the topic title instead of "____loses! ____ wins! And __________ happens at the end!"

Anonymous said...

OOHHH shit,they are posting the ending too!!!!
I'm not visiting anymore forums and i will not watch anything on youtube until the game comes out. :(

george said...

me too...fucking spilers..im not watching anything!!! il try to resist

Maybe Santa Monica studios might
wanna get youtube to take down Gow3
vid's.

Google seems to take them down all the time when asked nicely by groups
such as yourself.

ENDLESS.com.cn said...

We've just played the sex mini game.
The graphics of that is aweful,lower modeling,etc.

The worse thing is the innovation of sexual intercouse metaphor sucks,wores than GOW2's.

You can check the videos on gamestrailer:)

****SPOLIERS*****








































how could you Kratos, how could you betray us all..... :(
now i understand why most of the reviewers didnt like the ending

lastpanzar said...

Bruno.. what EDK1010 said. Can we expect to see the 'god armor' at some point? I always did love that one. Even if it isn't in the original product maybe down the road you guys can release additional skins as a dlc pack along with other good things! Thanks and congratulations again... 94 on metacritic

hkfans said...

I feel a little bit disappointed about the score of review...

Some editor of the review said that the story & ending is not so good
IGN:Presentation:8.5
"The story is far from perfect, but huge props to Sony Santa Monica for once again including a ton of bonus content."

I wish I won't feel disappointed when I play the game...

Hey Bruno..
I just saw a review of the game. Is it true that you can beat the game in 9 hours ? :(

Can we expect something in terms of DLC that could make the single player longer, or is it all going to be new costumes and new challenge modes?

Please answer the question : )

Anonymous said...

God of war 1 was 5.5 hrs long. God if war 2 was a little over 7. So if the 3rd one is 9 then you should all be happy

Anonymous said...

Yeah really guys if you have played the series before start on hard and it will take 13 hours the first play through otherwise it will be shorter because you wont have as much of a learning curve built in and it will be more fun using the different weapons at this level.
