After releasing a first collection composed of the two God of War games that came out on PS2, Sony decided to give the two PSP exclusives a second youth with the God of War Origins Collection. Here are two homemade videos showing different extracts from both titles. The collection should be released on September 13 in North America and September 14 in Europe.
I must say I was not convinced that making HD remakes of PS games was the best idea ever. That's precisely why I was pleasantly surprised when I started to play. Indeed, the two titles still look rather good on a high definition TV. Sure, Chains of Olympus may be a bit lacking in terms of polygons, but Ghost of Sparta is easily on par with the PS2 games. Don't expect to see HD textures though, as these are actually HD transfers of the portable titles in 1080p and 60 fps. For the fans of the franchise who have not had a chance to play them yet, it is probably a nice deal, provided you don't mind the "best of God of War" impression they leave, as they indeed bring nothing particularly new to the series, except new trophies maybe.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (4 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (4 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (4 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (5 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (11 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (11 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (11 Hours ago)
