    Can we actually call it God of War 4, though? I mean, I've no doubt that's Kratos and I hope it's set after 3, but we have no fucking clue if it really fits into the whole God of War saga like the others lol.

    I think its a good move at least to grab more audience to the series, probably what we saw is just the first hours of the game and later on Kratos is going back to what he's best at

    Okay, so I'm not big on the whole, giving Kratos a deeper narrative idea. Kratos is a highly aggressive, perpetually angry guy who will find a way to kill someone, even when that should be impossible. He can kill powerful heroes, monsters, magical constructs, the gods, titans and even a primordial deity, like Thanatos. I'm not opposed to them trying out a more mellowed out Kratos, after the events of the previous games, where he's killed all the gods, that were in his way. But I do disagree with some decisions on this new GoW.

    I do feel they're going for too much of a Last of Us vibe. I've only played some of that game, but I didn't look at that game and think GoW would work well in that kind of narrative. Just like a telltale God of War game, would be a bad idea, as it goes against the type of game it is. If they zoom out the camera during combat segments, and a bit more, outside of combat. I think that could eliminate some of the frustration I imagine the camera could cause.

    The blades of chaos absence is troubling for me, those weapons are a staple of the franchise. Now it could be, that they ARE in the game, Kratos is just able to actually remove them now. Or we get later on, as a new weapon, like how they've been replaced before, like the original blades of chaos, got swapped for the blades of Athena. But if they are actually gone for good, then What The Actual Fuck?

    Kratos has a son: I'm not utterly opposed to the idea. Like Kratos has lost his original family, he's lost his Spartan brothers, he must be desperately lonely. So it makes sense, he could have taken a wife and fathered a kid, outside of Greece. Or he adopted the little tyke, and has been teaching him, how to survive, while Kratos lives out, in exile, away from Greece.

    Norse Gods: It seems we've got Norse gods, and that rocks! Norse mythology is full of awesome gods, monsters and creatures that Kratos can fight. Like the Giants! Or the Norse Pantheon, Loki and his children. The Dwarves, elves etc. I already like the new enemy designs, so I approve of this change. I mean, who was left on the Greek pantheon, for Kratos to kill? Athena? Morpheus? He already killed Zeus, the biggest and baddest god around and butchered the rest of the Greek deities.

    In conclusion, some of this stuff looks cool, and other stuff is questionable. I hold out hope, for the next God of War. As I go and tackle God of War III.

    I love charlie cade and the videos he puts out. Him and Hyperbithero got me into the DMC series with their in-detail views and opinions about the games. This is defintely a great video too. It really does tackle why the new gow isn't a good idea. Narrative wise, I don't mind the new setting. It looks like it'll be an interesting story. I'm glad they went for a continuation of the story rather than rebooting the entire series because in GOW3, everything is literally dead, so it would just be lazy for the dev team to make an origin story and ignore the backstory of kratos. Gameplay wise, this looks boring as shit. The gameplay is supposed to carry the game, not the story about some angry individual who engages in tomfoolery.

    As much as I enjoyed the story of the past 3 games and 2 psp games (I'm ignoring ascension because no one remembers that game + I never played it) I don't feel like playing it or buying it by looking at the gameplay. If the gameplay isn't good,I won't buy it because I can always just look up the story on youtube and then call it a day. It's a god of war game. I want to fuck shit up in a fast and satisfying way.

    I enjoyed Ascension and will buy the new one as well because I like Kratos as a character.

    If it takes you all day to read a paragraph then really that says more about you than it does me.

    I'd have to look the paragraph up first, and nobody's got time for that.

    Yeah, it's not like there's a group of staff members devoted to posting gaming news.
