God of War: DVDfever gives it zero out of 10

God Of War
God of War is out on Friday April 20th, and it must suck royally because Sony’s UK PR wouldn’t send us a review copy. Hence, save your money on that junk and instead purchase Moss on PSVR, Far Cry 5, Dungeonette, Outlast 2, Secret of Mana HD Remake and the C64 Mini.

We used to get tons of stuff from Sony, so we can only presume that they’re now so stingey that they only give out stuff for review to the huge sites with millions of dollars poured into them, yet with an ever-changing line-up of reviewers, rather than those who actually love gaming – dedicated and passionate like ours, with a great team behind us of regular reviewers, so you get to know our like and dislikes, not like the big sites who just fart out a review to please the masses with little in the way of critical thinking.

From time to time, we get some amazing PR stuff sent through, such as the treasure chest in Dark Souls III, when even one of two of the ‘big’ sites didn’t, plus movies and videogames coming out of our ears from every other PR company.

As Harry Hill says in the Green Flag insurance advert, “We may not be the biggest, but by jingo, we’re determined to be the best!”

And we are… for the players… and movie watchers.

As for Sony, who knows what their issue is? If they know, they’re staying more tight-lipped than a bulldog sucking a lemon.

God of War is due out in early 2018 and looks superb, but is’ another sequel which dispenses with numbers when thinking of a title. Plus, it will be single-player only.

Footage has been leaked and Sony are super-pissed off about it. Why, since it actually looks pretty good. Also below is Dreamcast Guy’s rant about this situation, and he confirms that the footage came from a press event where one participant recorded their footage for the whole three hours and edited it down to ten minutes. I do have to ask how no-one spotted him recording it if it was so hush-hush. That sounds dodgy in itself, like Sony set the whole thing up. There’s also some other trailers and gameplay footage below that.

God of War

God of War is due out in early 2018 and looks superb, but is’ another sequel which dispenses with numbers when thinking of a title. Plus, it will be single-player only.

The plot dictates that many years have passed since Kratos took his vengeance against the Olympian gods. Having survived his final encounter with his father Zeus, Kratos now lives with his young son Atreus in the world of the Norse gods, a savage land inhabited by many ferocious monsters and warriors. In order to teach his son how to survive in such a world, Kratos must master the rage that has driven him for many years and embrace his newfound role as a father and mentor.

It will feature elements similar to RPG titles, such as archery knowledge points, as well as a Spartan Rage timed-ability during battle. This ability appears to be a new take on the “Rage” ability of the previous installments. There will also be crafting resources for the player to find. 2018’s God of War will feature a third-person, over-the-shoulder free camera, instead of the usual fixed cinematic camera.

Also, Kratos no longer uses his signature double-chained blades, since he lost these at the end of God of War III, and now uses a magical battle axe, which can be infused with elemental abilities and thrown at enemies.

You will also be able to take control of Atreus in the game.

God of War is released in 2018, exclusively on PS4 but there’s no specific date for it yet.
