Playing through the series again after picking up GOW Origins Collection, beat CoO and GoW1 last night so I moved onto Ghost of Sparta.. Wow this is an impressive HD upgrade to a PSP game. From the lighting to the blood that splatter on and stays on Kratos.

Very cool story so far too.

Getting more excited for Ascension.

I liked that sword in the beginning. Overall, it seems more of the same.
I think I've had it after 5 GoW games.

Yeah, I noticed. There's also something about Kratos' design that doesnt fit well with me. I think it is more reminiscent to the PS2 models than the PS3 one. They did say that they built him again from the ground up, though.

For those complaining about Kratos' character, he's an anti-hero. That's been established from the get go. There are reasons for his anger, and he's certainly still a traditional tragic Greek character though he's not incredibly complex. As to how you can't root for his cause, that I don't understand. The reasons for his crusade are made pretty clear. He's not meant to be sympathetic, but you should certainly understand where he's coming from as it's very well established.

I just can't get too excited about Ascension. I have played and loved every GoW so far, but this is a big "meh" for me. I might just skip it because it is just another prequel and wait for the eventual PS4 sequel.

Well, it tells the story of how Kratos broke his bond with Ares. It's not a completely unnecessary storyline. Plus, we've only seen 5 minutes of it. There are about 9 months of dev/reveal time between now and the release date. That's a lot of time to get excited.

I think that's exactly how I feel.
There's also the fact that they said the story won't be as long as the others because of the multiplayer.

They said it would be slightly shorter. It's apparently extremely close to the others. So I wouldn't worry about that.

Honestly, I was feeling "meh" about another God of War Game.. However I recently bought the Origin Collection and since then I've been playing the games in order..

Chains
GoW
Ghost of Sparta (excellent game)
Now at the tail end of GoW II.

I'm more pumped now than I was.. To the point where I'm actually excited.

I also like Kratos more now after playing the previous two prequels that I never got to play. His rage is totally understandable.

That's the spirit!

I'm currently replaying GOW1. I'm going to go through it, GOW2, as well as GOW3, and then I'll get the Origins Collection. I might play it in chronological order later, but seeing as how I don't have the Origins one, I'll just play through the trilogy and play Origins separately.

Can I just state, once again for the record, that I could not give any less f***s about online multiplayer.


Sorry, just had to get that out.

This game or any other, I just don't care about online play.

Ok, well I quickly nabbed the Origins Collection and I'm doing the same in playing them in chronological order. This will be awesome.

Collectors Edition announced. Sounds like a pretty good deal for 79.99.

Graphically it looks beautiful and i'm sure the gameplay is fun and solid...but yeah, i'm kind of in the same boat....too much of the same.

Same here. Looks like GOW3. And I am the only one who really gets tired of the huge amount of violence in the God Of War titles? I mean, I normally don't have anything against violent videogames, but in GOW its so glorified, it hurts the game.
