Re: GOW4 Multiplayer modes?

@GMG Technically God of War 1 let you use a costume with added bonuses so it's a plus to me and God of War III had new game + minus the awesome costumes you had to buy also what glitch are you talking about? They all had a variation as you say but it's still a bonus for a new game.

>technically
That isn't what NG+ means. New Game+ is starting the game with most (if not all) of what you would get throughout New Game (fresh). Be it upgrades, extensions, items, etc.

>a plus
Not the same kind of "plus" referred to.

>GoWIII had NG+
Yeah. As a glitch that got patched out.

>costumes
Are not NG+. They are used in a psuedo-NG+ where you play NG, but with costumes and possessions/urns allowed. You're confusing the terminology.

>what glitch
You didn't know of it? In the original version, you can unlock the Arena, die in it enough to be offered Easy (just don't play the Arena on Easy) and quit to menu. Start up a new game and you start with everything you would have in the Arena (all weapons, items, etc. *none of the progression based pick-ups like Boreas Ice Storm though*, extensions, etc.).

If you opted to have infinite MP, IP and even HP, you could take that into the main game (being unkillable without using possessions *casuals used this to get trophies on Hard*). This was achieved by being invincible, but letting a Gorgon air shatter you (to get around the issue of not taking damage). Ring-outs and damage would not work, but shatters from the air worked around that.

>still a bonus
But not literally what "New Game+" means. Papy was asked to clarify and said they are not designing this entry to need items you get throughout the game to progress, so they can have NG+. I just argue that you don't need to worry about that as in GoWIII's case, they just needed to fix the bugs with the game that can occur if you use things ahead of schedule. Simple as that.
