I've heard it's unplayable because EA lowballed the online server count (which is mandatory to play) and is being crushed by the launch crowd.

He mentioned that, but he said they just put a bunch of new servers online and to ignore the bitching because it will get better soon enough.

I haven't been following it at all, but if the reviews are good I'll check it out. Played one of the old ones a lot back in the day.

Oh wow, I just realised how close we are to GOW: Ascension coming out.

They just announced there's an online coop mode in God of War as well.

Looks like Gamespot's already reviewed the game. EDIT: Looks like there are 14 or 15 reviews, no "big name" reviews yet though, strangely.

33 reviews on metacritic, still nothing from IGN.

Consensus seems to be "it's really good, but nothing new." Cool with me.

Has anyone ever played the Walking Dead game? I'm trying to decide whether to buy it. It's only $30 now, and I like the comics (as well as the series).

IGN has a review in progress on their site. They seem to be leaning toward good, but not as good as God of War 3

The Destructoid review is very positive, even towards the multiplayer. That's what I like to hear.

Review: God of War: Ascension - Destructoid

At worst, it's going to be just another God of War game, only with a ridiculous multiplayer to mess around with. I'm excited.

Think I'm going to pick it up at midnight. I did midnight for Black Ops (never played it, just picked it up for Ashley's stepdad) and that was pretty grueling but I doubt the lines will be as ludicrous for GOW.

You know, I never played GoW, just the other two. Picked up Saga today, let's see if I can tear through it by Monday night.

I've only ever played GOW3, but I loved it. I doubt I'll ever go back and play the older ones.

Yeah I beat GOW3 and had a great time but have only ever watched Ashley play the first two. All of the games have the exact same gameplay but the stories in the first two are stronger. The ending of GOW3 was ludicrous and Kratos was just a raging prick by then. If you buy the GOW Saga comp, you get remastered versions of the early ones so the graphics remain great despite the age of the games. GOW1 looks awesome except for the cutscenes which they didn't bother remastering for whatever reason.
