I'm surprised as to why they released this for the ps2. Why not PS3 or 360? Confused...

gnome said...

Mostly because millions of people actually own a PS2 and hundreds of thousands are still being sold...

That said, this was another mouth-watering GoW 2 post dear mr. Elderly.

The Elderly said...

Indeed as surprised as you Mr.Teesmy, though the game will be playable on Ps3 at 480p.

The recent release catalogue for ps2 bears no comparison to the stuttering releases on the 360. Definitely not what i expect from my 360...

though Gnome (bows to elfish character....) you are indeed a voice of reason, though i can't help being duped by the "next gen" hype

gnome said...

I understand. Same thing with strip-club hype. Meeeh, nobody's perfect though...

The Elderly said...

speaking of strip clubs, did i or did I not take over ownership of a strip club recently.... only i have no recollection of where it was, or was I dreaming?

RC said...

Shaping up to be an astounding sequel. I enjoyed the time that I spent with the first GOW.

In other exciting news (exciting to me, at least ;( )The Windows Live beta is gearing up to start! PC vs. XBox 360 :D !

...hiya RC, wait now Windows live beta... okay im old, i don't always read things... or more like i forget things i read...

whats with pc vs 360.......

I've missed something important havent' i....

fatherkrishna said...

Is it not where PC gamers and console gamers can play the same title against each other on the net?

gnome said...

(gnome leaves a key-ring -with keys- and an envelope on elderly's desk)

TheTimeRunner said...

Since I missed the first game I shall pass on this one. No sence in playing it when I don't know what went on in the first game.

The Elderly said...

(pockets keys, keyring and brown envelope... nods at Gnome.....)

FK im not sure if it's not where pc and consoles meet... erm net thingy... if it's not then of course we're wrong, but if it is then that would be good and then it would be a very astute and learned deduction would that it is you wouldst not have imagined it was not originally, then you would be right....

... Timerunner i whole heartedly agree, starting 2 without having played 1 would be against the natural order of things....

gnome said...

Besides, the second threesome requires modest experience, which should have been gaines while playing God of War 1.

The Elderly said...

... it's what i've always said, that's precisely what walkthroughs are for, saves you all that practicing...

gnome said...

Regardless how much fun practicing 3somes can be... Even with a crushed ankle, apparently.

The Elderly said...

..you crushed your ankle?....

(elderly looks aghast at the distorted joint....)

eeeek!!!

gnome said...

Well not really crushed.... more of ...uhm... well, whatever, it's doing fine now...

The Elderly said...

..but it was at right angles only a second ago.... how the hell...

(pointing at Gnome)

your a dislocutionist!!!
