    Search for "Johny Chung Wii headtracking" and you will see the technique that nintendo is most probably using for their "3D" effect without glasses. That is not true 3D, but it does create a very good sense of depth. It could theoretically use the same technique with any other console or TV to do that kind of 3D effects, if only software incorporated it. That kind of 3D effect only needs to know the player's head relative to the TV/display to create that simple kind of depth. Would be nice if Gran Turismo included it with the PSEYE to use headtracking in racing.....

    I was wondering where all the references were from! Cause when Hades said I killed his wife, I was like "I...did?" cause I played all the games except Chains of Olympus. I loved the ending, like they were saying, it didn't show him as a mindless brute who's hell-bent on killing Zeus. It was bold and it really paid off, in my opinion. One last thing, Pandora is a really, really good character. I liked they way they had Kratos and her form some kind of connection and she helps him see beyond his hate and rage and that there is more inside of him. One of the best games I've ever played, bar none.

    P.s. Did you guys see the video after the credits? I'm surprised you guys didn't talk about it but if you didn't know it was there, I can see why you didn't talk about it lol

    Wow... Talk about spoilers for God of War 3. Thankfully, I finished 2 days ago. HE-HE!!!

    I think Kratos is one of the most interesting and fully fleshed out characters in gaming. I've been thinking about this since I started GOW 3 last week. I never thought that he was just a big dumb brute. I've played all the games and I appreciated the depth that they showed in him at the end and I thought it made perfect sense. It reminded me a lot of some of the things Snake went through in MGS 4.

    P.S. Sessler... I agree. No more 3D. No more James Cameron.

    Ok seriously NO MORE 3D. So sick of it. I have never played a game and thought wow this would be good if it was in 3D. Everyones going to spend all their time making the 3d look good and all the game play and story is gonna suffer. boooo!!!

    I actually used the Claws of Hades the most. I loved the combos with them, although I didn't use magic with them much (and when I did I usually used the ogre one). The only thing I didn't like about them was the combat grapple didn't work on most bosses.

    Another episode and another reason this is one of the best shows on the interwebs for gamers.

    The discussion of God of War 3 actually made me jealous of PS3 owners for the first time. Hearing all the "spoilers" they discussed made me wanna play it even more. Knowing the ending rarely bothers me with video games. All my enjoyment comes from getting to the end. They can slap together whatever thy want at that point.

    Also, 3-D will be the ruin of video games. it is the Dark Side. Do not go down the Dark Side. Wait till 3-D is actually 3-D(if that ever happens), not a fuzzy screen and a pair of goofy glasses. On the bright side for Nintendo, this does give them another hand held to milk for everything it's worth with redundant relaunches of slightly modified versions.

  • Really_another_Sequel?

    I enjoyed the ending of God of War 3. I loved how Kratos with the help of Pandora (with the hope at the bottom of Pandora's Box/Jar) saved himself from being completely consumed by revenge. I mean he still kills Zeus because that was his ultimate goal, and ends his life, but I felt they pulled it off really well. When he said "My revenge ends now" and he ends his life to release the hope within himself to the world was a really great moment in the game franchise to me. It reminded me a lot with Greek Tragedies, but with a spin on the suicide being more about salvation from revenge rather then just depression or preservtion of one's honor.

    yes we should all expect the god of franchise to rebirth maybe in the next gen of consoles, and include something of Kratos' twin brother, can't wait as this would epic since not too many well known gods are left

    This was a GREAT EP. I did not realize that so much happened in Chainz i will havew to go borrow it from a friend now. Idk how i feel about the end game with the character i just kill EVERYTHING and i loved it but was like this guy dosen't desrve his redemp[tion i am replaying it since i want to plat it and will look at the way he talks.

    BTW the interaction between Hephestus and Kratos where the some of the best dialogue in the game

    3D is annoying me it was good n avatar because it wasn't stupid even Mike BAY says no i don't like it and its the king of explosions himself saying that

    The "other ONE" Zeus is referring to is very likely and highly suspected to be the brother that was mentioned in a God of War (meaning the first game in the series) unlocked treasure "Birth of the Beast." In fact the God of War Collection rewards a trophy, "Legend of the Twins," for watching the video. My guess? Spartans stand tall...
