God of War Collection gets prepped for downloadable release

In honor of the release of God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP, Sony will be giving PS3 gamers the opportunity to download the first two games in the God of War series on their PS3s. God of War Collection, which has been available as a PS3 Blu-ray Disc game, will be uploaded as a downloadable game to the PlayStation Store next month.

The "collection" only includes two games - God of War and God of War II - but they have been completely touched up to take advantage of the PS3's advanced image rendering and HD output capabilities.

Above: All the gruesomeness of classic God of War, with the high-def technology of today. Win-win!

Unfortunately, behind-the-scenes videos and other bonus content that was included on the disc-based version of God of War Collection won't be available digitally. In fact, Sony will be offering both of the games separately instead of as a single download.

Official details on US availability and pricing of the downloadable GoW games hasn't been announced but should be showing up ahead of the launch of the new PSP title. Sony is also planning some God of War-themed goodies for PlayStation Plus subscribers to coincide with the launch, so stay tuned.

    So we get the chance to buy each game for $20, which you can pick up on disc with both games for $20 or so now, right? That's the problem with digital releases, like the PSP ones, you can't find deals very often.

    So Im assuming there isn't going to be a New Vegas review at this point so I will give a small metacritic review. The first thing you must know is that this game feels, plays, and looks almost identical to Fallout 3 which isn't really a bad thing considering how good it was. This time around it feels a bit dated but fuck, who really cares. It brings back all of the great RPG elements including tons of quests, deep customization, and lots of unique weapons. They did add some things like weapon modding (which is an awesome improvement over 3), reputation system, and gambling to name a few. There is also a hardcore mode if you daring enough to make some in game lifestyle changes but thats for you to see. On larger note, the world that is New Vegas is MASSIVE. It would take you days of non stop playing to scout out all of the 200 plus locations on the map. It really is something else. Now on to the dreadful issue of BUGS! This game is littered with them. I swear that this bastard froze or simply went black at least one million times... Extremely frustrating! There was one instance I got up to grab a beer/take a deuce, and when I got back it was still on the SAME black load screen. Im not shitting you. This issue alone is almost a deal breaker, and I would recommend holding off till they have a patch to fix it. 7/10 (till the bug issue is resolved) 9/10 (if they fix it) Things you will love: Deep customization Massive world to explore Same great Fallout Things you will Hate : Fucking bugs/load times Feels a bit dated Fucking bugs /load times I hope I was brief enough and gave you some insight into New Vegas I will be getting the GOW bundle
