Who else is a fan of the God of War series? I'm not a fan of the series so to speak (not that it's bad or anything), but I did get a huge interest in the most recent game and it so far sits as one of my games of the year and one of the best I've ever experienced. Speaking of that game...

God of War (2018) New Game Plus Mode Added
As of today, God of War (2018) has a New Game+ mode, which adds new Valkyrie attacks and armors. Here's the full list of everything the update brings:

  1. Relive the adventure of Kratos and Atreus, while keeping all of your earned equipment and abilities. Start a new game with all of your armors, talismans, enchantments, Runic Attacks, skills, and yes, even weapons. [NG+ ONLY]

  2. NG+ is for everyone! Upon starting a NG+ game, you will be able to select your desired difficulty – no matter which difficulty you picked for your previous playthrough. Enemies will be levelled up accordingly, so choose the amount of challenge which suits you best. [NG+ ONLY]

  3. Explore new customization options with more powerful versions of existing armors, talismans and enchantments. Collect Skap Slag, a new resource used by our blacksmithing duo to craft Perfect rarity-level gear. [NG+ ONLY]

  4. Forge a handful of new armor sets for both Kratos and Atreus, including some with exciting new gameplay abilities, such as a chest piece which creates massive explosions whenever Health or Rage stones are stomped on. [NG+ ONLY]

  5. Push the boundaries of combat by converting certain talismans and armor sets into enchantments, creating combinations which are not possible in a standard playthrough. [NG+ ONLY]

  6. Enemies can now turn elite even on “Give Me a Challenge+” difficulty. Add a new dimension to combat, even if you don’t want the ultimate challenge on “Give Me God of War+”. [NG+ ONLY]

  7. Some enemies have new behaviors and attack patterns. Maybe you should see how you hold up against the Valkyries this time around? [NG+ ONLY]

  8. Test your skills on timed Realm Tears. Running away won’t help you against Hel-Vikens and Revenants (once you open a rift) anymore. [NG+ ONLY]

  9. Receive a new shield skin when starting a game on NG+. Unlock an additional one by completing NG+ on “Give Me God of War+” difficulty. [NG+ ONLY]

  10. Repeat the New Game Plus experience as much as you’d like by starting another NG+ game from one you’ve just completed. [NG+ ONLY]

  11. Engage the story the way you want to. Skip cinematics as you please on both standard and NG+ playthroughs by completing the story at least once. Experience the scenes again to catch secrets you might have missed, or simply jump right back into the action.

  12. Switch out your armor pieces as much as you like without worrying. Easily transfer all enchantments from one piece of gear to another in the menu with the push of a button.

  13. Many bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements, such as ensuring that Parry Attacks keep Kratos safe at all times, improving the Wrath of the Frost Ancient Runic Attack, fixing inconsistencies with how enemy attacks can be parried, and much more.
You can watch 18 minutes of New Game+ footage courtesy of IGN, and why not read up about how Shuhei Yoshida was horrified the first time he played the latest God of War game.

I’m a fan. It was stunning when it came out on PS2. GOW2 pushes the PS2 so hard it was unthinkable that the system could even pull off such scale and detail.

Just a quick bump but I FINALLY finished the game and it was amazing. Also leading the tally for GOTY picks with Red Dead in second place.

Having played both this and RDR2, I would say GoW'18 is my personal GOTY pick. Both are great games but as a game I find this more enjoyable, and the single shot approach they took is such a simple but impressively effective technique. The main menu going straight into the game on your first time is something I've rarely seen, with Horizon being the only game to come to mind that did a seamless main menu approach, except that game went into the menu rather than out of it.

The very first inFAMOUS did that menu thing too.

But I haven’t played RDR2 yet so I can’t comment on its quality. GOW really did wow me and on a Pro with 4K HDR TV it really is beautiful. I don’t know if it’s my favorite in the series though. The older ones were very different but I liked them a lot too. This one has much more depth to combat though.

I didn't know that. Gasp

So did anyone else see that one of the artists for God of War has been doing their own interpretations of characters from Super Smash. Bros? - https://twitter.com/rafagrassetti/media
If you scroll through you'll see he's done Sonic, Bowser, Link, Samus, and Fox so far. Mewtwo will be his next one. Fox and Samus are my favourites so far because they don't stray too far from their original looks and style, whereas the others are way more stylised and are still something I'm getting used to. XD

The Making of God of War (PS4) - Announcement Trailer
A week ago, Sony released a trailer announcing a making of documentary for God of War (PS4), as part of the celebrations for the one year anniversary of the game.


While you're waiting for that to release, you can grab a free God of War dynamic theme and avatar set from the PlayStation Store if you didn't do so yet (like me).
