When I saw first trailer and pictures, I was like meeeeh....when I played the demo I was like YEAH! Damn...no live-action killing spree, music not very fitting the setting, but nice and nicely done trailer. IMO. :-)

Everything there looked awesome. Even the live action trailer which i don't usually like. Nice music too.

Nice graphics and scale.

Combat is the same old since well, forever with super minor new stuff not worth bringing up.
The intro, well I am glad it has more gameplay segments than GoW3.

The live action was ok, music sucked since it didnt fit at all to modern song to such a setting.

Anyways i will probably get it when it comes out...i just wish to god that the cutscenes can be skipped after the first playthrough and have a auto-QTE win feature like GoW3 Hephastaus Ring treasure.

I do wish devs wouldnt use 1080p, especially bullshots, to show off new screenshots of games that is only on consoles since it wont look anywhere near that when we play it.
Its like constant tease for next gen 1080p resolutions.

PS. since i never played GoW1, now i know why he is so pale /grey-ish all the time, thats a nice touch IMO.

Just watched that gameplay and I'm no longer worried about the single player. They stepped it up. I love Sony's first party studios.

Looks pretty dam impressive, GOW back to its best? Surprisingly it also looks to take the console's graphics crown!

I don't know what was wrong with your PS3 or TV but GOW3 looked as good if not better than all it's "bullshots". Oh wait no it's probably your eyes.

Nothing wrong with GoW3 since it looks fantastic.
And yes, 1080p non-upscaled to 1080p TV would be better.

MUsic in that live action trailer was garbage and didn't felt right for the type of stuff happening.

Nope, music was a shitty choice simple as that.

I did this and i picked Anthem of the Dead since it fits perfectly to the situation.

Unfortunetly the track doesnt end well with the video, cant be helped.

Nah. Prefer what they used. I liked the juxtaposition. Much like assassins creed and teardrop etc. makes it less....predictable.

everyone talk about gfx and gameplay, but without good camera view and great level design this game the series would never be so good.

Nobody will think of you less of a fanboy if you admit it was awfull man, or they will revoke your Sony fanboy Card?

Its still dumb and out of place. They hire composers to bring forward the game world, they should use it in the trailers as well, they shouldnt give mixed signals about it.

I was never a fan of the static camera in these games, but i learned to come to peace with them.

Is it really so hard to grasp the idea that i actually like the clash of styles. It makes it more interesting. I'm thankfully not like sath who ONLY ever listens to orchestral soundtracks, so i can appreciate other styles of music.
Commented on 2013-02-01 23:15:14
Liking one music to fit into something that doesnt fit is just bad, what is this...youtube FMV?

Me liking orchestra only or not has nothing to do with it at all, I am not saying the music is bad, i dont even care. But it doesnt fit what they are trying to potray, which is a epic world. Its just another thing from Gears of War, which then went to Assassins Creed.
I bet if it was a dubstep to this trailer you would love it, why not? its a "clash of styles" lol.

I like dubstep...not all dubstep, but quite a lot of it, so yeah, i probably would. Not the best argument you've ever come up with tbh. ;P
Commented on 2013-02-01 23:19:42
Then how come i see you say "another dubstep crap in the trailer" when one shows up.
But if you like it, then good for you, i think its a shitty one. Atleast the GoW3 was WAY better.
Commented on 2013-02-01 23:22:31
The music could be about My Little Pony lyrics and he would say "Well is interesting and I think it fits seeinf they want more sales by different poeple, yeah I thik I love My Little Pony I will tattoo one myself"

:D

Not all dubstep is born equal. If they'd used a crap song, dubstep, orchestral or otherwise i'd have said i didn't like it. But i like the song, and i like the slower, war drum version that's going on in the trailer. I think it fits. More interesting then yet more typical, predictable orchestral music at any rate.

Meh, I look forward to launch trailer, hopefully its as good as GoW3 one.

    KORNdog They just didn't bother including it in their demo footage because it's clearly as boring as it sounds. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Phaethon360: actually i wasn't. There is a mode other then the "you have been invaded" cat and mouse mode, where you JUST follow someone. (1 Hour ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 @digi_matrix: I agree. I like using the environment and hacking other players. Also what Korn was trying to say is "cat & mouse" gameplay. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @digi_matrix: debatable. One mode looks fun. The other look "different" but ultimately boring. I hear there is a mode where you litterally just follow another play. Exciting stuff. (3 Hours ago)
