I'm torn on whether or not to watch the E3 demo. Want to go into this one fresh, no bosses or setpieces, but I also want to see more of the moment to moment gameplay
If you think about it, they really haven't shown that much with the first trailer. I think we can watch something else, an epic boss fight to saciate the hype and then we can go blind :D

If they give it a spring 2018 date, not watching. No date, and I watch some of it. :p
I find that impossible to do with games Im looking forward too. I might avoid like trailers close to release, but a big showcase like this, I just cant

Im good with movies tho, still have not watched a single second of Spider-Man Homecoming trailers

I did okay with Horizon. I didn't watch much more after a certain point but I still entered threads and had bits and pieces exposed.

I'm going to do even better with God of War! It is going to be pretty tough since I am going to be in a theater this time though.

Yep, have only seen a small bit of Homecoming.

I did a terrible job in this sense with Horizon, I watched everything but the launch trailer

I did really well on my Uncharted 4 blackout. Only saw the PSX gameplay. Plan on doing the same for TLoU 2. Horizon was easy for me since I just ignored some of the story based trailers and just watched open world exploration footage.

Lol so did drifting I know because we both failed on our horizon blackout
Thinking back, I dont think I ever did a media blackout for any game Im even averagely interested in

I consumed this one like crazy too, and again only avoided the launch trailer

So will this game just be titled God of War?
An interesting note is that Jaffe's original concept for the series would've had every entry being called "God of War". Since it's one giant story he wanted Sony to figure out how to market it in a way that people would know when a new entry was released even though it'd still be called "God of War".

Not bad predictions. I think TLOU 2 will be mid to late 2019 and DS mid to late 2020 though. I honestly think GOW could be late 2017 since it reached alpha last Dec. Though they may just stick to tradition and release it in march.

This has me excited in all the right ways. When we saw the Horizon E3 banner last year I was hoping that would be the cover art and they pulled through, so hopeful here as well.

If this isn't it, just hoping that 90% of the cover won't just be Kratos' face scowling.
This wasn't the horizon cover


This is
I'm not expecting that to be the final GOW boxart.

Will the sequel be God of War 2? Is he going to become the Norse God of War? They should just remame it Son of Kratos. Sums up everything in a neat bow.

Got burnt out from the god of war series but the last E3 video was really interesting, love to see if the game play has been changed.

Wow, I was totally misremembering that poster as what ended up as the box art. Thanks for the correction!

If the Horizon poster was any precedent, hopefully we can end up with something similar to the GoW poster for the box art with some more dynamic poses.
