There was more too it than that but ya. Fans of battlefront liked it for it's authenticity and complained for inserting things in that broke the illusion. Dice's response was to double down and being dicks. Accused them of being uneducated because a few exceptions not the rule.. He also baselessly accused them of worse things.

Not to mention Dice is part of EA so that doesn't help my opinion of them.

@staticspeedster: What's wrong with the multiplayer games ?

Also, basically all of those I mentioned (except for GOW and RDR2 as far as I know) have multiplayer modes.

@staticspeedster: Well, which one out of all those games would you recommend me to buy ?

Personally, I'm really torn between God of War, The Last of Us and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Nope but you'll get to understand Kratos' character growth if you do I guess. If you don't, it's completely fine.

Although 1, all you need to know is that Kratos ends up becoming the new god of war

Just finished Yakuza Kiwami. It was a fun game.

I hear it's a remake of Yakuza 1 and part of the series that goes up too six.

I want to buy more of the story but what's the point and differences of the Kiwami 1 and 2 remakes? Is it the same thing if I get the original series or will I be missing out on something? Should I switch from Kiwami to the original after 2 or should I wait for more Kiwami remakes?

Yeah. I had a feeling this was coming; Matt in particular has been putting out his own content regularly. It also appears that my two favorites on the channel - Woolie and Pat - will be continuing to do stuff together. They're doing their own podcast called Castle Superbeasts, which I will definitely take a look at. I hope Woolie and Pat will do more together.

Interestingly, Matt and Pat weren't originally friends to begin with. They hated each other in college and were mutual friends of Woolie. It's interesting that Matt and Pat's friendship collapsed while Woolie is still friends with them.

It's ironic that Pat and Woolie are still on good terms considering they were the pair that actually didn't get along in terms of chemistry on camera and had the most arguments. Still, they turned out to be the best pairing (at least in terms of quality) so it's good to see them still work together.

I'm hoping that the breakup was just based on burnout (doing the same format for nearly a decade can do that) and a desire to work on passion projects, not anything personal or a big bustup a la what seemed to happen with the whole JonTron situation with Game Grumps. It would be a shame if there was any unneeded tension between them afterwards.

I'm gonna be honest here, this is for the best. You could tell from the podcast Matt was completely uninterested and Woolie and the only thing holding them together. Pat and Woolie and gonna keep doing the podcast so it's not like it's all over, and they'll probaly start a new LP channel once the dust settles.

Finally finished RDR2 in full today. That game is a classic. Great writing and great story. Arthur Morgan is one of the best protagonists in recent memory and the characters are great. 9-10/10. They set the bar high with this mammoth of a game. I must've put 60 something hours at the very least into this.

I'm not sure if DLC will be released, but I hope we get Sadie Adler dlc, the Blackwater incident dlc or maybe even a Landon Ricketts dlc. Hopefully, it's not another Undead Nightmare because I thought that was pretty much garbage in the first game.

As for Rockstar's next project, I hope we get a sequel to Bully. GTA can wait.

You're not wrong. Matt did feel uninterested and I could sense the passion he put into his own channel that just wasn't there on the main channel.

I hope Pat and Woolie continue to do more work together, and not just streams. Streams are fine but I much prefer LPs.

So, regarding the newest God of War, it's freaking awesome, I haven't finished it, not even close, but what I've played has been great and the story has just picked up with the introduction of Magni and Modi, and well, what happens right after their introduction which is spoiler territory.

This is the first and only God of War game I have played, hence the next explanation and following question/s.

Right now, I'm at the part where Atreus gets sick and Kratos takes her to Freya to heal him, but she tells him to go to Helheim and drop his axe because it won't work there, to which Kratos replies that he'll have to unbury a past he swore he'd never come back to, then he goes away on a boat to his home and encounters (her ghost?) Athena, she tells him that he'll always be a monster, Kratos grabs two knifes/daggers and replies "Yes, but not your monster anymore", then goes outside to fight some monsters and damn, those daggers are more badass than I would have ever imagined.

Anyway, with Kratos saying he'll have to unbury his past and his talk with Athena where there is clearly history, I think it's the perfect time to pause the game a little and catch up on Kratos' past story and character development.

So, does anyone know of any good Youtube video that shows and gives an explanation of Kratos' history ? Preferably without it being extremely long or very short to the point where you're still missing a lot of info.

I am literally a noob regarding Kratos, all I know is that he goes on a god killing spree and somehow kills Zeus or something like that, but that's just it, so any video that updates me on everything important about Kratos would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

@stormdriven: I saw yesterday a couple of videos, then some more today including the one you linked, it's a lot to process lol, there are prequels and the mains tory, and I think I have the basics now, but juggling all that information, I think I missed the most important part lol, which is: Why did Kratos hate Zeus ?

I mean, I get why he hated Ares, but the other gods, not so much.

@thor_parker82: There was a prophecy that said one of Zeus’ sons would kill him, and when Kratos became the God of War, Zeus tried to take his power for himself and kill Kratos. Any other god that stood in between him and Zeus would be killed.

Yeah, from the videos I saw, Kratos just seemed like an angry Spartan trying to get revenge and constantly screaming, not to mention he didn't seem to care about innocents nor had any decent morals, quite the contrary to the Kratos in the newest game who seems morally driven, focused and all around a great character.

I don't know if they also changed the voice actor for Kratos, but the newest one is miles better.

So glad Assassin's Creed 3 is getting a remaster. It was probably my second or third favourite game in the franchise. I just loved the hunting mechanics, and the character's signature choice of weaponry. Definitely felt like I was a native warrior fighting for a righteous cause.
