Gonna be amazing, that's for sure, my first time in the States.
Definitely would be awesome for some different take on the GoW mythology that they've built for themselves. There's even stuff that suggests we could go modern for a future game (based on GoW2 - I think it is - extra video sections showing off Cronos' dead body and heli's checking it out with the narrator saying that the next hero need not come from Kratos' time or something like that).
And now Santa Monica saying more Kratos isn't out of the question.
But a full on story with Hercules going through him being a child/teen/adult and then culminating in his meeting with Kratos' in GoW3 would be amazing.
And as you said the greek mythology has so much range that they could pick anyone and it'd be an awesome game. There's also plenty of room to move without it being repetitive either.
The thing I'm more pissed about that anything is that last time they had the UTE's for sale they said it was the last in Aus. Now suddenly they have more. Hopefully they can have one more sale right before Thursday.
And we want the Irish stuff back too, Spartan! I'd like to have seen the Irish forests that the Brits plundered to build their great houses and monuments for a start. But must try to forgive, I suppose.
We were in Santorini on our honeymoon - fabulous place I'd love to see your shots.
