God of War Ascension demo released - new trailer

Postby sammikid » 26 Feb 2013, 15:44

After resisting watching the first 30 minute vid that was released a while back, I caved and watched the trailer.
I pre-ordered the GOW bundle yesterday with white PS3 and gold controller, off to check my US account now for the demo :D

EDIT: So the demo isn't up on the US store yet :(

The American store should update sometime tonight, usually anytime from 10pm.

Pesky trailer has gone and got me even more excited for the game. I'm getting on now so I don't like to use up all my excitement just in case I have an accident.

I'm very tempted to skip the demo all together for this as i have managed to avoid all videos for it so far. Ok i had a shot of the MP beta but that doesn't feature anything from the main story. I really want to go into this game blind.

Very happy I preordered this now, but I will give the demo a wide berth. Is it two or three weeks until the uk release?

I always fail to take note of the time the stores are updated, i'm always like "yeah its sometime on tuesday or wednesday"
Everyone needs an El mag to fill in the blanks. Thats if you can be trusted to fill in the blanks.

I think its great that even though we've had the PS4 announcement, with some next-gen game footage shown, we can still get excited for current-gen software. A fair number of titles releasing this year that i'm really excited for.

I didn't want to watch the first 30 Minutes so I could go into the game, as a whole, blind and not watch someone else play and ruin the set-up to the story for me.
As-long as the demo doesn't ruin the story for me I wouldn't mind giving it a go just to see how it plays. I also played the multi-player beta
Though i'm starting to think maybe it is worth just waiting for the release on the 15th (so 2.5 weeks dwhlufc)
I'm just impatient....... 2 and a half weeks!!! i'll probably play the demo.

I do most of my buying off the American store so that's how I know its usual times, I'd only ever lie to rbt. He deserves it though to be fair.

I've been asked if I want that special edition gold pad as well. It is nice but I'd hate to end up breaking the t**t going on a plat run.

Is it just me, clearly it is, but have by now we not had our fill of more games in the God of War series? I mean, you can hardly say each "new" entry is even slightly different in any way to the once which came previous. Sure the games look the part, run smooth and are generally entertaining, in a by the numbers way, but its basically just button-mashing mixed with the occasional - and more frequent - QTE. If the games didn't have the production values they do then clearly this is a series which would fall through the cracks.

You mean a game in a series is similar to the ones before it? Well holy s**t it's lucky you pointed that out, i was expecting a dancing game with karting sections!

And who is 'we'? Surely you're not trying to speak for every gamer?
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

I'm ashamed to say it but i've never played a GOW game! I was never really into button masher hack n slash games until I played Darksiders.

Agreed. I've not made a pre order yet as I plan on doing that next week but there is no reason for me to play the demo. I can wait until I buy the full game. :P
