You know what I'm really digging...

...the sound effects for Kratos' blades. Every game has had changes to their audio....but I think what they're putting out now is my favorite. Especially when they slam the ground after a sst combo.

True, but from the first 30 minute demo, I feel like there were some audio not finalized and I hope they fix it for launch.

Has anybody noticed the zipping noise when the chains fly out? Sounds weird in surround, and I have to agree that the bass that is produced when the blades hit the ground is really deep.....definitley a step up from all of the other GOW games

I heard that zipping also. I don't know if it's specific to those blades.... speaking of... which blades are those? I lost track. There was Chaos, Athena, and Exhile, right? I'm assuming Athena as they don't look like Chaos.

Agree on the base. Nice big boom.

They are the Chaos Blades, Kratos doesn't get Athena's until right after God of War. Yes the new blade sound is by far the best so far.

Ok. I don't recall them having a golden glow, but makes sense as far as the story goes.

Hmm...so check this out. Remember the first gameplay we saw? This obviously takes place later in the game. But aren't those the blades of Athena?

No, those are still the Blades of Chaos. Those are just upgraded.

 

He doesn't get the Blades of Athena until Ares takes them away, and then Athena gives him new ones at the very end of GoW1, after he kills Ares. He continues to use them in GoW2.

His blades in general in my personal opinion are one of the huge draws to this game.  By far they are my most favorite weapon ever created for a game.

 

Giant blades that fly out and are attached to chains? Yes please.
