Default God of War 2 - March 13th

If you don't know it already, I'm a huge fan of the first God of War. Easily one of my favorite games of last generation, and as you all know that game now has a sequel coming. According to IGN, March 13th as you can see by the title.

The game will come in two versions.

1 Disc Box:

2 Disc Box set:

Quote:
The second disc will include a number of bonuses including a full-length, behind-the-scenes documentary that was filmed over the entirety of the game's development, starting with the very first playtest.

Those with PS3's will probably be glad to know this game will be optimized for HD, so BC video issues should not be a problem.

#2 - It's Being HD Optimized: As many players have upgraded to HDTVs since the original God of War shipped, God of War 2's programming team has spent quite a bit of time on making sure the game looks solid if players run it in high definition. "We're aware that there's a lot more HDTVs in the marketplace than there necessarily was a couple years ago," says Moss. "We spent a lot of time on making the resolution a bit higher, making sure art looks really nice on TVs, progressive scan -- all that kind of stuff."
IGN has some new GOW2 hands on. It's pretty filled with spoilers so dont click if you are worried about that sort of thing, but basically it tells a lot about the first level. But it also tells about some of the weapons and powers you might see during the course of the game. Anyways heres the link.

Some interesting things...

Should you need a little extra help through the game, a number of unlockable mini-games are at your disposal. Challenge of the Gods has returned, along with a new battle mode that lets you put whatever creatures you want into an arena to fight. Both of these now tie directly into your save game, so if you go and earn some red orbs in any of the extra modes, you'll have them when you load back up your main game. This allows you to upgrade your character outside of the game in case you get stuck on a really tricky part, as well as provide a more cohesive feel to the whole package.
Quote:
The Challenge of the Gods has been tweaked a bit since last time out. It's still said to be incredibly difficult, but the rules have changed a bit. For one, each challenge now has some sort of ranking system attached to it, allowing you to pass the challenge if you complete the lowest ranking, while still giving you the biggest rewards for perfecting the challenge. As well, you'll be able to save your progress after each challenge. Nope, you won't have to leave your system on for days at a time anymore, thankfully.
Theres some images and video on the page as well.
Images: http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/811/811719/imgs_1.html (january 12th images are from the 1st level)
Video: http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/811/811719/vids_1.html (Dev interview from Cory Barlog is also there)

If you missed the e3 demo, you probably want check out some videos here. Especially the trailer..
http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?fs=1&id=2567

If you own a ps2 or have access to a ps2, and you havent played the first game yet, you really should rent it or buy it (should be pretty cheap these days). A truely epic game that has great combat, puzzles, graphics, and a interesting story. GOW2 doesnt come for a couple months so theres still time.

ok im done.

Omg! I need that 2 disc set cover in poster size now!

This is definitely getting pre-ordered next week. Looks at all the particles in the snow vid, amazing. I don't even want to think of what they are going to do with GoW3 on PS3.

I thought this was worth posting, really good 20 minute interview with David Jaffe.
He talks about calling all cars, god of war 2&3, wii, 360, ps3, game development, etc.
