E3 09 Virtual Booth Tour: God of War III

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by

Sr. Social Media Manager

We’re now on our way back from LA, but even with E3 2009 in the books, we’ve got a lot more videos coming for you.

During the conference, we had an elevated area above the show floor where media members and other dignataries (I’m looking at you, Verne Troyer) could get a guided walkthrough on our titles.

We shot a number of “Virtual Booth Tours” with our top developers, to give you a feel for what it’s like to be at E3, and to see some parts of the games that you probably haven’t seen before.

First up, Combat Designer Adam Puhl takes us through the part of the God of War III demo that we *didn’t* show during the press conference.

Coming up Monday: A guided tour of MAG!

Gods, I can’t freakin’ wait for this! Why must you torture me so, damned Kratos? If I reserve like 12 copies ahead of time, will it come any faster? Because I think I’d actually consider that. XP

Thanks for the hands on demo. :)

So what rating is over M again.. Cause seriously this isn’t an M rating it’s like M+++++++++ The gore is seriously amazing.

But am I the only one who finds the way Kratos walks strange? It just looks stiff.

Why in god’s name didn’t you show THIS demo on stage at E3?

This is MUCH better than the one shown on stage.

2010 is going to packed with good games for Sony. God of War III is a perfect example.

Looks awesome, though I really hope they fix the animation of the cyclops when Kratos controls them – didn’t look like the cyclops was panicking or in pain; needs to be more like the animation from the Fear Nothing trailer

It really dose suck that the press conference on the PS Store got edited during the God of War III demo. The least you could do is give us a demo video or game play trailer of just God of War, age verify it if you have to, if that’s the issue.

Game looks like its going to live up to expectations. I mean I have this pre-ordered and paid in full and I have till March.

People don’t care about this stuff anymore. It’s about system upgrades and accessories. Games fill in the gaps in between. You show up with one title looking ready for 2009 and a ball on the end of a stick. A PSP that cost more than a PSP now that has less and a montage videos that can only be considered a cluster ****. 2 years of seeing on this blog what gets people fired up and people have to make a list to show you did well.

Read: God of War is the best action adventure game series to date and the best hack-n-slash series to date. Easily my favorite game series. God of War and God of War II are my two favorite games of all-time, and God of War III looks amazing.

Screw all the journalists who say that Sony Santa Monica are taking it safe. That’s exactly what they said about God of War II, but they totally missed all the nuances that changed between the first and second game. They just don’t realize that there isn’t a whole lot to fix from the prior games like in pretty much every other game series, so it’s not as dramatic of a change since all the developers have to do is refine, not rebuild.

And there are still plenty of big innovations every time, like Pegasus and Icarus Wings from GoWII, and Icarus ascension and rideable creatures and new enemy AI structures for III, and that’s only what we’ve just seen in this FIRST gameplay dmeo.

DEMO DEMO DEMO DEMO…lol but really when do we get our hands on this epic insanity of awesomeness? judging by past games it will probably be a month or less before launch, too bad the more feedback early could help make this game PERFECT in every way.
