    This has to be one of, if not my favorite game series ever and God of War 3 doesn't look like it'll disappoint!

    The Vengeance trailer released last month was pretty awesome: IGN Video: God of War III PlayStation 3 Trailer - Vengeance Trailer

    But the latest episode of GT-TV had some truly spectacular footage:
    Online Video Game Trailer TV Show Episodes with Geoff Keighley | GameTrailers.com.

    The shot where Kratos falls on Chronos' hand and you realize just how small he is in comparison is amazing.

    Only 2 weeks left until it's out - who else is planning on getting this on March 16?

    Also what's the best pre-order deal out there? Amazon has a decent one with a $10 future sales coupon, 3% off, an Apollo skin, and free shipping with and Amazon Prime trial. Any better deals out there?

    Special edition will be mine. I am really stoked about this game. Can't believe it's two weeks away.

    I like what they said about mixing up Kratos' weapons and abilities, stating that they designed the game to make us use his different weapons and abilities, and dared you to try defeating enemies with the Square, Triangle move only.

    I am really torn here, I loved going through the God Of War collection it's got me all fired up for the 3rd in the series. Although it looks like I will have to choose between this and Final Fantasy XIII. I know right? Tough life decisions.

    I'm saving for both, but I have to admit that Final Fantasy takes second place to this, especially because I'm not sure I'm happy with the whole "no towns" thing.

    I know I'm wishing for a lot, but after seeing Kratos all pissed off for 3 games, and knowing why he's pissed and what he did in his past (or was tricked into doing), I really hope that this game shows a bit more of his human side, remorse, disappointment, etc etc).

    If there's any remorse or disappointment he should rip its head off.

    Did you guys see the footage on GT last week? And that's the shit they've decided to show. I can't imagine what shit they aren't showing.

    I didn't check it out because I heard the video has some spoilers in it.

    In terms of who you fight and some of the locals, so yeah, maybe. In that case, the only thing I will say, is yeah, it looks pho-king insane, and if it plays anything like the demo has been, but more polished, then we're in for a treat.

    Well, there's one short sequence in there that we haven't seen before with
    Kratos fighting what looks like Chronos
    . It looks awesome of course!

    Looking forward to getting this, though I'd like to get the God of War Collection first and play though the first two games but I can't find a listing for it being released in the UK :(

    I'm pumped. I beat God of War 2 on Titan during Christmas, so definitely ready to see the improvements.

    And if I'd known mate, I just sold my spare copy on eBay :(

    Well if it's getting released later on I'll pick it up then.

    I have games that are beginning to stack up anyway so not adding another few at present is fine.

    Thanks anyway.

    It was fortold by the followers of Kratos that their God would deliver unto them a peace of the Last Day of Olympus.

    YouTube - God of War III First 10 minutes

    If you've watched the latest GTV Episode or read the most recent Kotaku articles on the start of the game then its not an issue but if you haven't and don't want to watch the video then don't click or you'r fragile mind may be liquified.

    Just picked up the newest issue of PLaystation Magazine, mainly for the GoW3 review. After reading it, March 16 can't come soon enough.
