Has anyone gotten into the multiplayer beta?

 

Also, is it just me or does it sound like the single player game is stealing some aspects from 'Prince of Persia: Warrior Within'?

Kratos can now steal weapons from his enemies, acquiring powerful secondary attacks, allowing for unimaginable vicious combo attacks and new strategies. Combine the Blades of Chaos with your enemies' weapons for the most lethal attacks.

 

Not only will you use Kratos' new Life Cycle mechanic ability to control the flow of time in various environments to solve the secrets of some of the grandiose obstacles you will encounter, but you will also use it to freeze enemies during combat. Shift the power of time to slay your enemies.

Nah, Could be a little inspiration. Since God of War, just about every type of game in this genera has stolen from the series. The single player needed a nice revamp before it got stale. In previous games the weapons outside the Blades of Chaos couldn't compare... Sword of Zeus was kinda cool, but the Blades were just so much better. It looks to me that you'll just have a secondary that you've stolen and you can interchange them out as you see fit when you encounter certain enemies who's weapon you like. Or maybe instead of 3 fixed secondary weapons you find throughout the game, you'll just have 3 slots to interchange giving you a variety of weapons. This would be my preferred method. There is always that one weapon you don't want to give up for another, and this would allow you to keep it while experimenting with others without regretting swapping them out. It would also conform with the button layout of the previous games.

Yeah I did that too. LOL I did like the Cestus... every time a boss let me get close enough, I'd bash them to pieces with it. Plus it worked great when you got overwhelmed by larger mobs of enemies.

The Cestus was a devastating weapon up close. Its a shame it was so much slower than the blades. It was definitely the weapon I used the most against bosses. The damage per hit was huge. :nod:

 

What do you think was the weakest or most pointless weapon / power in the previous God of War games?

 

I hated the Army of Hades spell from the first GoW. Sure it was powerful, but you could only use it twice before all your magic was depleted.

I loved Army of Hades, because max it lasted a good bit for the magic it costs you. I only used it on mini bosses that annoyed me, otherwise it was Poseidon's rage FTW. Atlas Quake and Army of Sparta are my other two favorites.

 

Medusa's/Euryale's Gaze was useless to me. I didn't have time to turn people into stone while I was savagely destorying everyone in my path.

It looks good. :tup:

 

Medusa's/Euryale's Gaze was one of the funnest weapons to play with for me. I always maxed it out. You'd be surprised how many strong enemies could be instant stoned and then shattered using that thing in the latter parts of the game.

 

btw, have you seen the video from E3 2012? It shows a lot of good footage of the single player mode from when it was still in production:

I downloaded the multiplayer beta today and tried it out. Turns out the beta is already over. But I was able to do the training. The multiplayer does not really appeal to me. It plays like God of War, but it doesn't feel like it at all. Because its only 4 vs 4 or 8 vs 8, its nothing like the usual GoW, with Kratos destroying hundreds of enemies. If anything it feels like a fighting game, except in a 3d environment.

It sounds like it will be a good game. In the multiplayer demo I had a chance to have the character pick up a battle hammer that was useable with the circle button. Once I chucked the hammer, it reverted to a kicking attack.

 

I'm still a bit confused with the time line. I'm guessing unlike the other games where Kratos somehow losses his powerups at the beginning of the game, at the end of this game he will somehow loose all his powerups because then God of War 1 starts.

 

I wonder if they are doing this prequel game because they wanted more time to figure out a plausible sequel to GoW 3.

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.
