    This is looking pretty amazing. The combat looks great.

    Yep I've gone from being a bit interested to absolutely salivating over it's release date. Hopefully it's this year's Nioh for me where I went in with no real expectations and came out absolutely loving it.

    Yeah same with me. Wasn't really expecting much from the combat but it looks incredible.

    I adore the god of war games, but it didn't need another more of the same game in the series. The steps they have taken to move it along look amazing and I can't wait to sell my first born in order to get a copy.

    Recalling the axe is never going to get old.

    It reminds me of I first looked at footage for Resi 4 and was excited about the change in viewpoint and gameplay mechanics. I know plenty of die hards hated the way it changed but for me RE4 became one of my favourite games of yesteryear. I'm definitely feeling the same kind of vibe for this new GoW.

    Comes out the same week as Yakuza 6. What a wonderful week that'll be.

    The very reason I have/keep my ps4 is for the general high standard of the exclusives, this looks to be a day one. :)

    Shit. I bought Yakuza 0 last year in a digi sale and never played it. Maybe I should play it after FC5 and then get 6 later in the year so I don't suffer burnout....and it will be cheaper.

    Had to stop watching that video as I didn't want to spoil the game for myself. It does look absolutely stunning and I was initially concerned that the closer camera view would impede the combat but it still looks visceral as hell. As SpaceMonkey would say, well done Sony Santa Monica.

    I'm a massive gow (the real gow that is) fan. I've not really looked at any of the recent footage though, I saw a gif or two but that was about it. I trust that the director having been involved with the originals that he knows what he's doing, and Sony never seem to put a foot wrong with their exclusives.

    There are many magical weapons wielded by gods and non gods in Norse mythology such as Gungnir, Dainsleif, Lævateinn, Angurvadal and Mystletainn to name a few. Swords, axes, spears and even a ribbon are among them.

    This wasn't really on my radar until I watched that gameplay footage, but it looks outstanding and very likely a day one purchase.

    Still a bit concerned whether it can sustain a 20+ hour game without dragging on, rather than being a punchy 8 hour game like the previous games.

    Very tempted by this. I play to wait for reviews though.

    So Cory has confirmed on Twitter that PS4 Pro has a Resolution and Performance Mode. 4k/30fps and maybe 1080p/60fps ?

    So hard to choose. I love the way the game looks in 4k but I absolutely love the way it moves in the performance mode. DAMN!!! Sophie's Choice!!!!

    Fucks sake. I'm really against these mid gen upgrade consoles but it's getting almost impossible to ignore them now.

    I'll be amazed if they can get this running at a reasonably solid 60fps on the pro. Looks too richly detailed, too much going on.

    Delighted if they can do it though!

    I'm getting the limited edition pro with this, trading in my launch ps4 and any two games so I'll get it for €230 (offer in Gamestop here in ireland). Really looking forward to it now.

    I'll be playing this on my peasant PS4, no bells and whistles for me.

    I will be as well, and I (I am terribly ashamed to say) will be playing it on a non-4k TV too.

    @Farley2k

    I think Horizon Zero Dawn has shown us all that you can also have a fantastic experience on the base PS4

    I don't give a shit about the extra bells and whistles but action games running at half the framerate on the standard PS4 is making it impossible not to buy one.

    It is annoying but I don't game enough to warrant an upgrade. I guess if a killer offer appeared for the pro I'd jump on it but as it stands I'm happy to slum it on the base model. I did actually buy a pro for psvr but once I got rid of that I returned to the base model again.

    The enhanced visuals/performance are a bonus but I'm really looking forward to the larger hard drive. Plus my base model is pushing on now and will fail eventually. For the offer Gamestop are doing I couldn't say no.

    So wait, it's 1080p, solid 30fps on base PS4 so will play nicely and smoothly as any Sony gZme on PS4? (Shadow colossus, horizon, uncharted 4)

    We're ok right? ;{

    I’ve never played a GoW game (not sure why, just happens doesn’t it). This looks incredible. I’m all over it! That YouTube link above... sent that to 3 mates this morning and that’s the first they’ve seen of this game (they are casual gamers) - they are blown away.

    God of War was a great hack and slash game with an engaging story and brilliant anti-hero that made it feel fresh. Then it became the opposite of that by pumping out pretty much the same game over and over.

    It needed to take a break, and build from the ground up. And by the looks of it, it has... If only other game series took this approach.
  • Deleted user 31 March 2018 12:43:02
    Reviews due a week before release, sounds pretty good from previews so far

    Think anytime I think about getting either a PS4 pro or new TV, I realize I'd have to get the other thing at pretty much the same time (and hard to justify as I have a perfectly fine TV and PS4 already)

    Can I ask a stupid question?

    My son has a PS4 slim and apparently it has HDR capability, well that is what it said on the box. What does this exactly mean... Does it make games look better? Would God of War look better on that than my vanilla ps4?

    Cheers in advance!

    Think you need a TV that's suppots HDR otherwise you can't select the HDR option in the PS4 settings
