      they had a few trailers already and an e3 demo i think

  • Zancrow

    After seeing it: Wow, fucking awesome!
    And this is just the beginning!
    Though, this was bound to happen since every GoW starts with a bang! :D

      Who needs next gen consoles if our trusty PS3 can still deliver the stuff of legend. TLOU and Beyond do not look to shabby either. There’s still life in the old lady =)

    This looks amazing.

    I was planning on waiting a bit for financial reasons, but now I just can’t.

    I just finished watching the 30 minutes of gameplay video. That was awesome!

    When the harpy lady released those bugs from… well.. yeah. That was freaky.

    • Zancrow

      I definitely can’t fap to this.

      Hardly a Harpy. Shes one of the Furies. And yeah that was pretty gross. I am surprised she’s wearing a top however. I expected her to be nude as per GoW standards.

  • paperclichepixel

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!

  • EspadaKiller

    Not gonna watch the first 30 mins of gameplay….don’t want to spoil myself for this epic game!

  • Kobracon

    Finally got around to watching this. That was amazing! I am now satisfied that the multiplayer did not detract from an epic SP experience. Although only time will tell if it is shorter than the GoW standard of 8 hours or so gameplay due to the multiplayer development.

    Also, is it just me or does every second GoW game on a console get better than the first one on that platform? Let me explain, GoW 1 on the PS2 was a great game, then came GoW 2 on PS2 and it was freakin amazing. Better graphics, gameplay and experience.

    GoW: Chains of Olympus on the PSP was good, but Ghost of Sparta was better as well.

    And now we have this. GoW3 was a fantastic game, this looks and seems to play even better. It seems that the first game on the system is always the test bed, and the second game is where they perfect the art and by GOD does it look like they perfected it.

    P.S. I now know how to pronounce “Hekatonkheires” :D

      the game director said it would be about the same length as the very first gow game which is kinda unfortunate for those not interested in the multi player. cuz without the multiplayer the single player campaign would def be longer
