    I played the beta last night. It ran fine with no lag issues but the actual gameplay didnt really work for me. You cant control the camera because the right stick is used to evade, the maps are tiny and it just didnt feel right. This sort of game doesnt need multiplayer anyway to be fair

    Ah God of War Ascension. Had like one match on the multiplayer beta. Doesn't really seem all that fun to me. I'm looking forward to the Single Player demo though.

    Wasted 10 minutes trying to connect to a match to no avail

    This. To be fair I was never interested in the mp in a GOW game...and I'm still not.

    I played the beta extensively and really liked it. It feels fresh compared to the infinite procession of shooters that litter the competitive multiplayer landscape.

    It also let's you answer the question: how good am I at God of War? You can get some really satisfying duels that end in the orgasmic violence of a brutal kill. I even found myself complimenting my opponents on some really well worked counters and combos.

    Of course if it's lagging, then it's controller-throwing bullshit.

    I thought it was passable. Will definitely be buying this for the SP though. This will be a nice bonus.

    I just found it confusing. When a crowd of half a dozen identical players are stood around thrashing each other its very hard to tell whats going on.

    It did have its moments and the ctf was ok but I cant see it being massively popular.

    finally some new campaign footage.
    First 30 minutes here.
    Spoilers obviously.
    Still worried about the prequel nature of the story. It's not what I want; hate retcon stuff; but the game looks epic.

    That does indeed look amazing - i just hope all this multiplayer bollocks doesnt have any effect on the final product.

    I'll pick it up at some point, or rent it. I really liked the first 3 but I'm just not really interested anymore. They killed Poseidon, Hades and Zeus in one game. Not sure how they intent to top that.

    The single player demo for this is up on the US PSN store. It's 3.7GBs. I've downloaded it but don't have time to play it tonight.

    Oooh looks like a different demo from the one at the EG expo. Will download tonight.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Got an off-topic (but kind of on-topic) question :

    I'm thinking about picking up the God of War Saga off Amazon. However, its an American import and i believe GOW 1+2 are only available in the box as downloads.

    Does this mean i'd have to start a US PSN account to download them?

    I'm not sure. They might be region locked (the downloads).
    The demo is very awesome. Been playing Darksiders recently and the combat system there just pales to the GOW style

    Where does this game fit in the series? Obviously before 1, 2 and 3 but what about the PSP games? I've been meaning to get the 2nd HD collection for awhile now but i'll wait until after Ascension if it's set before them.

    Ah, ok, thanks!

    Now I just need to decide whether to buy it straight away or wait.

    Enjoying the demo a lot, but why did I press yes to game audio, voice in Greek!

    God damn! I forgot how painfully slow it was to simply get a demo up and running on the PS3. This shit really had better be a thing of the past when it comes to the PS4.
    The installing time is almost as long as the friggin download time.
