I recently went down my local game store for a lock in for God of war ascension and i was told a number of things by someone who worked for playstation and who was showing off the game to the public that seem to me to be utter B.S
Firstly i was told the story mode was between 30-40 hours long , this seems quite long to me it hasnt taken me even like 10 hours to complete god of war 3
Then when i asked about the story of the ascension i was told that it begins even before kratos has even pledged his aliegance to Ares , now ive seen the first 30 minutes of ascension on youtube so im pretty sure thats BS
After that i began to asks questions about mutiplayer and the kind of level of customization in terms of the amount of weapons your hero could use instead of just the hammer and sword in the beta . He replied by saying that we would get tridents and spears ( i thought this would be the case seeing poseidon and all) but then he mentioned having a sword and shield , having duel blades like what kratos uses , having dual weilding chains , or having an option to use 1 handed sword with the other hand equipped with a chain , being able to use a 1 handed sword in both hands..... they pretty much said every weapon you could think of except chakrams !!.
Now this all sounds good but im abit concerneed that this could be total trash they were talking in which case i would be able little bit dissapointed seeing how i would have had someone pretty much lie to my face .
I do hope someone can clear this up for me even if they cant give anything away can i atleast know if this information is false?
yeah i kinda guessed it i mean i took pretty much all he said with a pinch of salt , so im not dissapoointedin the fact some of this info is false , just the fact a sony employee may have lied to my face..... i mean i cant say for certain because the game isnt out yet but in time we shal see.
Also he told me that the judgment weapon was made exclusively for them to hand out to pre orders during this lock in...... a quick googling and i found this to be false its was drove my suspicion in the first place
After this I saw a preview from the Telegraph, and they included a quote from another SSM employee saying the game was longer than GoW 3.
In addition to that, at the PAX panel they said the campaign was around 14 hours. So which is it?
I personaly think it was a mixture of lies and just ignorance of what he was trying to promote i rememeber quizing him on the background of who Orion was , as he was one of the characters in the mythological heroes DLC for preorder and he was was rabbinting on about how he doesnt have that much armor on because hes always on the frontlines of battle ........yet doesnt mention one bit about Homers epic , Odyssey or the fact he was a huntsman or any other variation of the story of orion.
He even total starting BSing when i asked about Perseus and who he was ......not one mention of the Medusa. Heck i even went back into my local game store and even the employees said he talks trash.
