I must play this - after I finish the GoW Collection, Call of Pripyat, Silent Hunter, AC2 and the stack of a dozen more games sitting on my shelf waiting for me.  So many games to play, so many...

Not sure how they would continue the franchise...I guess prequels and spin-offs.

Will they show more than half of Kratos's face on the cover art?

Moving the QTE prompts further to the edges of the screen is brilliant.  From what I could see, each specific button is placed on the screen according to its relative location on the controller. 
 
In so many games with QTEs, I end up just watching for the prompts and missing the cool action.  By moving the prompts further in different directions, I'll be able to know which button to press not by having to look directly at the graphic prompt, but by its location on the screen.  Now I can actually focus on the cool events happening on screen instead of just watching for the circle button to appear. 
 
A really great design choice.

Different mythology. Vikings perhaps?

Brad did a great job in this interview as always.  He asks things beyond "so how awesome is your game?"  I can really appreciate that.  On the other hand, none of these dudes seemed like they were prepared to answer anything about the game.  Some of the looks he got when he asked technical questions...yeah...that cracked me up.

I guess the design of Hades fits thematically, but I still don't like his character model. As one of the 3 main brothers (Hades, Zeus and Poseidon), I was hoping for something a bit cooler than a fat dude with spikes and a helmet.

yea there was this bonus video on GOW 1 that said that kratos' brother may factor into later stuff. it was actually a pretty cool idea. if you have the first one and you havent seen the video its called 'birth of a beast' im sure you can find it on youtube

@Hashbrowns: I agree and that is the case, at least in the demo, much easier to hit the buttons and not miss the gut stabbing and head ripping. 
 
also, love the eye gouging, it was R3 & L3 too, so you have to use your thumbs to press down and in, that was a nice touch

You know, I played a lot of the demo and it tired me out. But after seeing all of this (not the interview) I'm going to have to find a way to come up with another $60 for this game.

I hate Kratos.  Seriously the guy seems like a massive douche.   
 
The game looks fun though.

Every time I heard the God of War song, I always think of this video now.  Once you see it, you can't un-see it.
