    3 hours into God of War III and my jaw is still on the floor. This game is ridiculously beautiful. I’m actually having a hard time paying attention to my actions on the screen as I blankly stare at my TV in awe.

    So far, the game feels easier that the previous ones (played all of them on normal) and they have made some tweaks that I really dig. The most obvious one for me is the screen placement of the QTE actions – makes it much easier to watch the scene while making the button press more automatic in my mind. Very done so far.

    @JeffGrubb Re: PAX I wish but school has sadly taken precedent in my case. As for your other question, I have no real problem with closeness between journalists and any developers (big or small) as long as I feel that they are able to maintain objective when they review the games those developers create. The notion that somehow people within the game industry won’t develop relationships amongst themselves is ridiculous. When you spent that much time around the same people, these relationships will form. Do we actually think this doesn’t happen in other areas of journalism, be it sports or film or technology? We as long as people can detach themselves from those relationships when necessary, that’s fine – this is what distinguishes the real reporters from the fan boys. The journalist understands that he/she has a job to do and frankly, if the developer is actually a friend, he should understand and respect that responsibility. This may be a bit naive of me to see it this way but there you go…As for being flown out/ free game copy, it’s the same thing in my mind – the real journalists can separate themselves from the circumstances and critique objectively. The others aren’t worth our time anyway….

    Also, how many of you, if any, are going to PAX East?

    @feenwager Leave a message here when you plan on logging in.

    @beige I’m thinking about skipping it this year.

    I’ll know whether or not PAX East is a possibility on Friday.

    @feenwager I would love to go to PAX East again. Not sure if finances will take it… or indeed if I will be gainfully employed by then. But I’m tempted to just register anyway.

    Also: you just summed up why I usually hate Halo and Gears. I found that either I’ve got better at the game or those moments are less frequent in Reach.

    The thing I do particularly like about Reach, though, is that if the campaign does drive you crazy, you can go off and do something else. There is SO MUCH stuff in that package that there’s always something else to do. As long as you like doing it from a first-person perspective armed with a gun.

    We should do some Squad multi sometime. Some team play would be awesome. Who amongst us has got a copy?

    @Feenwager Count me in…

    I’ll be taking the train from Cleveland again. I suggest the Minottis do the same thing.
