162w ago - SCEA Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has unveiled Deimos for God of War III alongside some new GOW: Ghost of Sparta PSP skins today.
To quote: November 2nd is only a few short days away, and we thought it was only fair that we give our Spartan Army a sneak peek at all the various skins you get to experience within Ghost of Sparta, and also a first gameplay glimpse of Deimos within God of War III.
Here to walk you through each of the skins is the Game Director of God of War: Ghost of Sparta, Dana Jan.
Just for comparison, I thought I would throw in Kratos in his standard gear for a direct comparison. Some interesting notes about the default model:
We reworked it and improved a lot of things including better textures, specular shine on the metal (belt, shin guard, weapons), his goatee was fixed (Chains of Olympus didn't have an alpha channel on it), his face I more expressive due to new facial rig, and subtle improvements like the red tattoo having a softened edge so it looks better up close. The blades were all remodeled to match the Blades of Athena as seen in God of War II as well.

Throughout the game, Kratos sees visions of his past. We came up with a 'look' or visual style for these...
191w ago - First Impression: After three years of waiting, I was excited to finally bring home the long awaited God of War 3. I took the disc out of the case, put it into my PlayStation 3 gaming console, and was very impressed with the opening video.
After watching the events leading up to God of War 3 unfold in a stylistic silhouette art type, I was immediately drawn into the game play. I was impressed with the art style, graphics, and game play. I began thinking what to rate the game right away; based on the opening.
After a few moments of awe, I placed the game at a 9.9 and almost rated it 10 (If it wasn't for a really bad audio clip). However that 9.9 has since changed. After the first few minutes of playing the game, and a few problems, my high 9.9 quickly came down.
The battle with the water horse at the beginning of the game fed my long awaited God of War fix. Not only was I fighting on the back of mother earth, but I was fighting gods on the back of mother earth, while the terrain constantly changed. One time I actually had to fight the water horse upside down, which is pretty difficult if you don't know what you're doing.
A little further down the line, you actually get to see Aries again in his ice encased...
191w ago - Today Associate Producer William Weissbaum has shared an exclusive God of War III music video interview dubbed 'Even Gods Cry' on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: With the recent release of the God of War III Ultimate Edition, many of you, when not busy swinging those double deadly Blades of Chaos, have been rocking nonstop to the sounds of the God of War: Blood & Metal album.
One of the tracks in particular has been gaining rapidly in popularity, "Even Gods Cry" by The Turtlenecks. With its haunting melody and thoughtful lyrics, it's no wonder that it has many fans tapping their feet and scratching their heads.
After much pleading and begging Matthew Cappiello and Noah Belson, the illusive Turtlenecks themselves, agreed to allow the PS.Blog to have the world exclusive premiere of the "Even Gods Cry" music video.
Better yet they were kind enough to sit down with me and answer a few questions providing some true insight to the men behind the music.
What Inspired you to write "Even Gods Cry"?
Noah Belson: What inspired DaVinci to paint The Last Supper? Or Mike Angelo to take brush to the Sistine...
