SABER LOCK CONFIRMED?

12 replies 207 views Edited Jan 12, 2013

Hey!

 

Check out this Zeus trailer

http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/3n4nha/god-of-war--ascension-zeus-trailer

 

At around 1:03, a hammer and a sword will both land at the same time, in which they rebound and start a struggle where usually you have to spam a button to overpower the other.

 

Why isnt this in the beta? Smiley Surprised

Many of us wonder this because during this beta it seems as if swords have a priority over hammers.

If I'm not mistaken, this doesn't even happen with sword vs. sword.

That's true. A "clash" system of some sort is definitely needed for this MP.

That would be awesome hopefully they do incorporate it into the final product. I also agree with dajizzle, seems that swords overpower hammers.

Edit: * seems swords have more priority over hammErs .

 

What i also noticed in that video is the air combos, how the guy jumped and hit him twice and slammed hum back into the ground, i tried doing that but the air time is not long enough for me to do it. Anyone else try doing it?

I post something about this, but yes it would be great. Just imagine clash with another guy and start smashing circle like a mad man... lol.

I haven't yet but probably will now. Most players juggle you in the air with Triangle then resume comboing the hell out of you for extra hits and then grapple you at the end for maximum damage. I've seen this drain nearly an entire health bar. Word to the wise DO NOT GET JUGGLED AT ANY COST.

I dont get how the youtube videos show insane combos because to me it feels like I can only get in like 3-4 hits before the white aura comes and resets the flow so the other guy can have a chance again Smiley Tongue

I think a Weapon lock/battle system would slow combat down too much, or else it would be a quick draw, press random button before the other player. Although I do think it would feel a little more like GoW if during the execution of the Cyclops you have to press a couple of random buttons, say, one button to dodge an attack and another button to jab the Spear of Destiny into his face before your teammates show up to finish the ******* off.
