Recently it feels like I've been nothing but negative about alot of new releases. So I'll start with the fact that I LOVE the God of War games. But towards the end of two, and definitely in three, the narrative was completely lost. I don't see where the story, be it prequel or not, can go or do. And with the multiplayer that I have tried a few times and just think is out and out rubbish, this is yet another title that I shall be waiting to pick up until it drops in price, or maybe rent. the promise of access to the TLOU demo (which could possibly end up being yet another "Multiplayer Beta") will not sway me to purchase. Wow. I need something to be positive about.

This is a marketing tactic usually used to shift crap, make of that what you will.
troublemaker's avatar
Yep! same as the last two Medal of Honor games offering BF beta access. Hoping the promise will shift more units of a rubbish product (although I admit to enjoying MoH and Bulletstorm which had a similar thing for the Gears 3 Beta)

Don't forget the Halo 3 beta that came with Crackdown and the Halo 4 beta that came with ODST both of them were good games in their own rights

Haven't you just got a PS3? God of Wars story and gameplay is stronger than Darksiders. Can't wait for this.

Don't think GOW is going to have any trouble selling. Its not exactly Zone of the Enders is it?

The purpose is to sell Last of Us, which probably won't have trouble selling itself, but it IS a new IP, so it makes sense to not take any chances.

I would have to agree with Gloria here... I mean, take Bulletstorm for example - the only reason that sold well was because Gears of War fans wanted early beta access. Although, I did actually enjoy Bulletstorm :)

It's a decent marketing tactic. But I'd imagine everyone who was gonna buy GOW was gonna buy the Last of Us anyways. Demo or not.
PrometheusFan's avatar
I fail to see why that would be the case. They're both very different kinds of games.

Datastatic's avatar
Yep I agree with Kevin. GOW fans are pretty mainstream and The Last of Us is a bit of an unknown for the general public. Obviously we are all over it as gamers but it might put it on quite a few peoples radars that otherwise hadn't heard of it.

As much as i want to play ''The Last Of Us'' i just can't justify buying God Of War Ascension for a demo, just not my type of game i guess.

Excellent news. Already pre-ordered God of War Collectors Edition and can't wait for that. But hearing it comes with a demo for The Last Of Us makes the deal even sweeter.

Good thinking. Ascension is going to sell big numbers and there was always going to be awareness issues with a new IP at this late stage of a console's life cycle, even one with the pedigree of Last of Us... so using GoW to get people to at least try out the newer game is probably the best thing they could do rather than putting the demo on some new Blu-Ray movie again or something...

Got all the other God Of War games but this really not doing much for me. The Last Of Us mind is my most anticipated game of Q1. Some solid games on all formats and new console news. This may well be the year that bankrupts me.

I am definitley picking up the new GOW game. The reason why i'm picking up this game is not because of the first access to 'The Last Of Us', which is of course great, but because the previous God Of War games were excellent, hopefully Ascension will be as fun as the previous once. Can't wait for The Last Of Us too.

I played the multiplayer beta and it was great! I don't know why. I don't normally like multiplayer. Not sure if I can justify buying another game though.
