Check out this 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?
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 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.
