Does God of War 3 feature the best visuals I've ever seen in a video game? Is it the game responsible for the most jaws I've seen dropped in a 30-minute period? Will it make other console owners weep? Will God of War 3 be 'Game of the Year'? I can't say a word at the moment, but all these questions will be answered in our review on Monday at 5pm GMT. Until then here are a few more questions. Does God of War feature the best boss fights in video game history? Is it better than Dante's Inferno? Is it a reason to buy a PS3?

It's been interesting to observe the internet's reaction to the various FFXIII review scores that went live this week. The general reaction seems to be, "yeah, tell us something we don't know". You'd think Final Fantasy's loyal army of fans would have made it a life mission to flame the comments section of every review with lower-than-expected score (whatever that is). But, on the whole, this hasn't happened. This of course has a lot to do with the December release of the PS3 version in Japan, and a hell of a lot of importing. But perhaps it's just general apathy towards a series, and maybe a genre, that we've outgrown. Has the West fallen out of love with Final Fantasy?

Why all first person shooters don't just all have the same controller setup is beyond me. I did jump in about half way through the campaign, but for the first hour or so I was just dying over and over again. Pressing on, the game just began to piss me off more and more with increasing amounts of stupid AI, gameplay glitches, and truly awful hit detection. Multiplayer changed everything. It's like a completely different game, one that I was suddenly cleaning up in as well. There are only a handful of game types, but the expansive and incredibly intricate maps make every game seriously intense. Then you have helicopters, quad bikes, tanks, mounted turrets - it's very difficult not to have a lot of fun here.

I'm only kidding, 9 will probably be a fair score as it doesn't really do anything new in terms of gameplay.

Been hitting up some Borderlands online, it's actually so much better, quests are easier and it's nice actually playing with someone else.

Perhaps is should get the General Knox DLC? Any thoughts?
