The Aphrodite scene was awesome, never experienced something like that in a game. Funny thing was I was playing and my wife walks in the room and she thought I was watching porn....LOL. Wife's distraction broke the QTE, so I had to play the scene over like 10 times.
There's been one of those in every GOW game. I've played all 3 now and each time my wife sees one of those QTE (aka Softcore Video Game Porn) she just shakes her head and walks away. I feel like a perv for a few seconds but it quickly wears off when I 'finish the job' and get a bunch of upgrade orbs. :-)
Quick thought: Do you think GOW developers had a team assigned specifically to boobies? :-)
Yeah, my girlfriend knows all about the scenes since I ended up actually just playing God of War 1&2 with the re-release collection on the PS3. Then buying Chain of Olympus, thus to the third installment. I just smile at her. She glares back. A great feeling. =]
Hehe, I'll admit to it...I have an "Aphrodite's Chamber" save file. I thought the Poseidon Princess encounter would be the mini game when I first saw her, but boy was I wrong. "I didn't do it...But I wish I did!"
On my Titan Mode play through I have a save file there but because I want to see what happens when you say "no." However, I haven't bothered and I needed the red orbs. Plus, the Cronos scene is just so amazing and intense. Though, I still wonder why Cronos doesn't just close his hand when he knows Kratos is there.
Saying "no" won't really do anything. She'll just get a disappointed look on her face, say something about "you men and your wars" and point you to the Hyperion Gate that takes you to Hephaestus' Forge.
