GOW3 reviews,GDC,Entrevista,Vets-Play hard mode!

Hey everyone, the reviews for GOW3 are in! All of us at Sony Santa Monica worked really hard to give you guys the most Epic experience possible abd I hope you guys enjoy the ride!


I Just wanted to also share that this Friday I will be giving a talk at GDC for any of you guys that may be comming to the event. Here is the info:

Animation Process of God of War IIISpeaker:
Bruno Velazquez (Lead Animator, Sony Santa Monica)

Finally I have a word of advice for GOW Vets that are waiting to play GOW3:


On your first playthrough please choose TITAN(hard) mode! I will guarantee that the game will be more fun and challenging and you will enjoy it more. The lenght of the game will also increase a bit since fights will be thougher and more fun!

Buena entrevista, aunque me quede con ganas de más, y quisiera saber ¿Que otros personajes o escenas animaste? Para que este martes que lo juegue (por que voy a faltar a la escuela, jeje) sepa a quien agradecer :)
Y si, pienso jugarlo en dificil desde la primera vez, es más interesante asi. Y pues al parecer, por lo que otros han comentado en las reviews(evitando spoilers importantes, claro) el sistema de armas ha mejorado, lo cual me agrada por que una vez que domino los controles me gusta matar a los enemigos de formas creativas combinando todas las armas, como si quisiera fanfarronear, además asi como que se la da más vida al personaje, es como ver un trailer Kratos utiliza muchos ataques en sucesión y no el mismo uno y otra vez.

Ya quiero que sea martes! Y gracias a ti y a todo el equipo por un excelente juego, sin duda uno de los mejores de la historia.

I know EXACTLY what's gonna happen. I am a GOW vet, but I'm sure that I'm going to be tearing my hair out by the end. So I think I'll go through once on normal, then again on titan. I'd rather have fun, then to be frustrated. Besides, I replay GOW games pretty often, so it's not like the length of the game matters to me.

Good luck with the GDC event.

Muy buena la entrevista y sobre todo el trabajo que haces el de kratos Y SUS ANIMACIONES excelente es digno de admirar...!!!FELICITACIONES BRUNO..!!

-Una cosa el juego para mi en lo poco que he visto es espectacular y abrumador, yo nose porque he visto varias reviews y a mi entender para colocar poca nota y decir que el final del juego es malo, que la duracion del juego es de 8 horas, que no tiene innovacion (para que innovar si esto es el GOD OF WAR QUE QUEREMOS.)..Que hay partes del juego que no tiene mayor nitidez bueno en fin yo como buen hardcore gamers que soy esto tiene una sola palabra QUE ES "ENVIDIA"..!! Bueno BRUNO espero tu opinion sobre esto... sin mas que decir No puedo esperar mas a este Juegazo.. TODOS UDS.. son los mejores.....

On my first playthrough i will definitely choose hard.
And you will use the other weapons more on hard than on normal.
Only 6 more days to go :) :)

Hey Bruno I have to ask... in that video interview I saw a kick-ass Scorpion figure. Where did you get it!?!? I'm a big MK fan and I don't think I've ever seen a Scorpion action-figure quite like the one you have at your desk. Thanks!

GodModeGOD said...

As a "vet", I'd like to start on a higher settings, but I share my first experience *tradition* with a friend. Then play again with other friends. It's only when I'm alone that I can begin serious runs. 'Very Hard', Challenges, Arena, Specialty Runs, glitch hunts, focus runs, damage testing, etc. So I cannot take your advice.

I thought I heard mention that there was asking being done about what one spell should return. I've been a fan of the petrification mechanic. Vets learn it well *even in GoW1*. Euryale's Head was splendid. I get the impression we can't expect Stheno in GoWIII. If there is a vote to be had, I'd be rooting for a petrification spell over even the return of PR again.

~I don't suppose there is any chance the proper "Blue Kratos" will ever turn up as a DLC costume

Import a copy,you know thats the right thing to do.

EDK1010 said...

"releasing the floodgates" It sounds like that trophy was made for you Bruno. You always put something about opening floodgates on your blog!

The Ronin Boss said...

Acabo de ver unos cuantos minutos del especial de GoW de atomix. Y solo quiero decir: Es completamente injusto que esos tipos que ni siquiera se saben bien la historia, hayan tenido la oportunidad de jugar GoW3 antes que muchos fans, de cada 10 cosas de la serie que decian, 7 estaban mal. Pesimo.

mind_free2 said...

ok. tuesday first playthrough on titan mode. thanks bruno. waited 3 years for this game ;) congrats to you and the team. also great review scores for this epic masterpiece. i bet you worked very hard all this time and now it's time you get rewarded

Why Atlas isn't in GOW3, Bruno? imho, he played a big part in previous GOW games and Atlas would have been a cool Titan leval considering that he's only Titan with 4 hands.

Quemador said...

^ Hey you know bruno wont comment on spoilers....and why are spoiling the game, many of us dont want to be spoil...fucktard

Anonymous said...

Almost finished the game

Amazing..

I won't spoil anything, but some part of the boss battles looked like Street fighter 2020 on super cracks..

No words can describe..

"No Atlas in game" is saying like "No Donald Duck in game". it's no real spoiler :p

lastpanzar said...

All available costumes at this point:

Kind of shocked that there is only 1 costume available in the boxed game, but they do look great otherwise.

Bruno I really wanted to see the "god costume" from GOW2 in there. Hopefully you guys can make that and some others available as DLC down the road.

2 days!

Atlantis?

Ragav said...

@quemador: i would love to but the problem is that no gamestore is willing to ship all the way to India. I'm ready to pay the cash for the box but nobody's willing to send it >_<

Hi bruno!

I played thru the game on normal and now I'm at the end in HARD. I spent like 6 hours trying to kill the 3 headed hellhound right after Kratos jumps down at the chains, but got no clue how to make it :(.

Phase 1: Hellhound has 3 heads, spawns small heat seeking doggies. Piece of cake, jumping to his back all the time and hitting him with the cestus.

Phase2: Health 100%. Now the boss spawns 1 piece of fckn :) two legged Ram with a giant blade. Is there any easy way to kill him and FAST? :)

I know, that his weakness is the Nemesis Whip and if I get him at the right time, I can nuke him by slamming triangle all the time. But the BOSS always gets on me and kicks me in the butt, giving me hard time. So do you have any fast way to neutralize this Ram bastard?

Thanks!

Quemador said...

You know what, i think is my fault to come here to read post from a**holes like Manci spoiling the whole F'ing fight...yeah is my fault.

Bruno Velazquez said...

Is ok Quemador, at least it wasn't one of the big boss fights. This fight is just one of the small brawls compared to ther encounters.

I am off to a midnight launch event but I will begin answeringyour questions once again soon!

Quemador said...

Oh wow thanks Bruno!!
I hope you guys had fun there

Manci said...

No worries Quemador, you actually have to see the fights, the monsters and you gonna see, that I just teased, and spoiled nothing :).

Next time I'll post a big SPOILER TAG warning :).

Manci said...

WOOHOO! I KILLED THE BASTARD! Anyone need the tacs, lemme know :D.
