God of War III on PS3 Uses Only Half of the Engine's Capability

214w ago - God of War III game director Sig Asmussen claims the PS3 video game could be twice as good, in a recent interview with Destructoid.

To quote: "I think our studio will use this engine again, and it'll get better. And I think we're probably about 50- or 60-percent at it right now. I think there's a lot more we can do with it."

He then talks about perfecting the transition from cutscene to gameplay, lighting improvements, and particularly, animations:

"I think individually our animations are incredible, and our animators are incredibly talented. But I think we could make our system technically better, in the way we blend animations.

And I'm pretty sure that we already have the code to do that, and we just didn't implement it in God of War III because it came in real late."

214w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video interview today with God of War III's Stig Asmussen to answer fans questions.

To quote: See, I told you we'd get him! As you could imagine, God of War III Game Director Stig Asmussen is a very busy man.

But as promised, we managed to lock him down for about 10 minutes to bombard him with your questions at the GDC PlayStation.Blog.Lounge (also, check out our chat with Designer Director Todd Papy who filled in for Stig last week).

With T-minus four days until Chaos, Stig is looking very relaxed, and so he tackles your inquires with ease. And I promise there are no spoilers here, so no need to worry for those of you that are struggling to stay in the dark.
