171w ago - SCEA Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has posted up a God of War PS3 Creator's Documentary Shoot video today and announced that the game directors are live in LA!
To quote: Earlier this month, we announced through that the God of War: Ghost of Sparta six-item pre-order bundle will include an EXCLUSIVE Game Directors Documentary.
What we didn't mention however, is the open invitation to our loyal God of War fans to take part in the actual filming of the documentary in front of a live studio audience.
On Wednesday, September 1st from 4:00pm to 7:00pm, we're taking over the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, and bringing together, for the first time in history, the entire cast of God of War Game Directors for a roundtable discussion filmed in front of a live studio audience, including: David Jaffe, Cory Barlog, Stig Asmussen, Ru Weerasuiya, and Dana Jan.
As with all epic events, we'll have gifts and prizes for all in attendance, but be sure to get there early! Seating is first come, first serve, and there's only a total of 150 seats available.
194w ago - Update: Examiner.com also uncovered a God Of War 3 PS3 Trophy glitch in which you can obtain a trophy without meeting the requirements.
To quote: "The "Maxed Out!" silver trophy can normally be acquired by upgrading all the weapons in the story mode to the maximum with red orbs.
To do so, players must string together high combos and painstakingly search for hidden treasure chests throughout the adventure. This can be tough when playing at a higher difficulty levels."
A God Of War 3 PS3 glitch has recently surfaced which allows users to skip the boss Hermes if they find battling him is too difficult, as demonstrated in the video below courtesy of findlestick via YouTube.
To quote: Kratos outruns Hermes! Skip the Grapple wall at Hermes.
This skip was a no brainer really, grapple walls in the past have lent themselves for this type of abuse. I'm not really glitching this game yet, will enjoy a few normal runs through it on all difficulties first. But decided to put this speedrun strat up, saves maybe 20-25 seconds (guessing tho).
