So there's no real reason for them to battle each other after all.
I thought Omar stated that there was a specific reason, not just "I'm a demigod and want a challenge"
They're not in the same universe ffs.
I mean, technically there are reasons as to why they fight each other. I just think you were expecting something much more cinematic and in-depth
Reasons for rivalries:
Kratos: Mistook Sweet Tooth for a demon, (Who wouldn't think he's a demon? I know I would) tried attaking him, missed him, got his ice cream, ST got mad. (Sounds reasonable to me.)
Big Daddy: Although cheesy, got mad at Sackboy after finding out Little Sister, the center of his life, started admiring Sackboy more. (Also sounds reasonable to me, as Big Daddies are practically, emotionally, built around Little Sisters)
That's not the reason I'm after.
Kratos was about to overthrow Olympus, but decides to take a stroll somewhere else.
What the devil?
A) I don't remember him ever 'about' to overthrow Olympus.
B) We don't even know "when" this takes place in his timeline
C) Storymode isn't the "Main" attraction point for this game. Don't expect so much out of it, man
A) "about"? Titans are climbing up Olympus. He talks about them in the intro and in the ending. Did you even see it?
B) It's clearly just before God of War 3. When in GoW is he ever climbing up to the Gods, other than GoW 3?
C) Storymode was told to make sense. Don't expect so much? I'm expecting what Omar told us.
Wait a minute?
Also whats with the very end cutscene. He already toppled Olympus?
A new God telling him to do his bidding. That would've been an awesome reason for Kratos to go kick his **bleep**, but instead he just goes out to find? What? He doesn't know. Apart from the word "heroes"
wow this is the most half assed game i have ever seen in my entire life..31 minutes of fighting, 20 seconds of screens, and then 40 seconds of video. Nice going **bleep**tybot
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"
