God of War

God of War is a title that not only rewards fans of the original franchise, but will bring in gamers en masse thanks to a simply ridiculous amount of dedication and finesse from the developers. It is a title sure to be remembered as a landmark moment in video game history.

The Pros: 

+Stunning graphics and grandiose scope
+Powerful and compelling storyline/main quest
+Playful use of tropes and evolutionary gameplay
+Oscar-caliber soundtrack

-Kids can be little shits some times

On the run up to the launch, there's been a lot of backlash towards the changes the crew at Santa Monica made to the storied franchise that is God of War. Change is a scary thing, sometimes it pays off but a lot of the time it doesn't. As you might have already guessed, based on numerous other reviews that already published last week, the gamble Santa Monica made with God of War have paid off, in a very big way.

New PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC Includes A Space Engineer and A God

Despite SuperBot Entertainment and Sony parting ways out of nowhere, the DLC plans for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale aren’t being given the boot – at least for now.  After the arrival of the Fury Level and the arrival of Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as playable characters, PS All-Stars is set to receive yet another new level mash-up and two more characters.

God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Impressions [Hands-On Preview]

If there’s one important thing that this generation has taught both gamers, developers, and publishers it’s that hot trends do indeed have a major impact.  In some cases it’s easy to push aside a trend as nothing more than a fad for that given moment, but at other times it’s hard to deny the growth something has received and how it almost immediately becomes part of the DNA of the industry for better or worse. 

God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Beta To Kick Off Next Month + New Video

You wouldn’t think that’s such a thing is happening due to the lack of hype thus far, but a new God of War game is coming out five months from now.  Not a direct continuation of God of War III, Sony Santa Monica is nonetheless continuing the tale of sorrow, bloodshed, and anger in God of War: Ascension.  So far we’ve seen what the game has to offer in a brief single-player snippet and today we have more footage showcasing the new and somewhat controversial multiplayer mode.

God of War Movie Still Happening, Gets New Writing Team

It seemed like it was only yesterday that I was thinking of how amazing a film based on God of War could be.  The cinematic action of the GOW series would make for a perfect Hollywood blockbuster if it were in the rights hands and had a talented cast to portray characters such as Kratos, Zeus, and Aries.

Ready at Dawn (God of War PSP Developer) Reveals Future Plans

There may or may not be a God of War game on the PlayStation Vita but one thing that is for sure is that developer Ready at Dawn won’t be at the helm.  The studio responsible for the PSP entries in the God of War series has revealed that they will be skipping the God of War series for something much better: a game on an unannounced next-gen platform. I think it’s time to cue the next-gen PlayStation launch game alarm since RAD is rather chummy with Sony.

PlayStation Heroes Come To Life In Sony's Live Long Play Ad [Video]

Video game ads are always hit and miss since they either try to be too unique in order to captivate people or are simple snippets of game footage condensed into a 20 second clip.  For the most part we’ve gotten some good video game ads this generation that pay respect to the property without dumbing things down too much for the mainstream audience. Even games like Dante’s Inferno have gotten decent ads amidst classics like the ad campaign the Gears of War series has received.

Sony Reportedly Revealing New God of War Game This Afternoon [E3 2011]

In a few hours we’re going to receive some potential megaton announcements from Sony, or at least that’s what we’re hoping for.  Sony may not give us a glimpse at the next iteration of the core PlayStation console just yet, but they could very well give us the complete lowdown on the NGP/PlayStation Vita and some of the rumored unannounced PS3 games they have in the pipeline (Sly 4, SCE London’s projects).  Of course there are bound to be a few familiar faces during Sony’s E3 presentation today, one of which will be the return of God of War.

Sony Santa Monica Could Be Prepping Or At Least Aiding In A New Open-World Action Game

For the past month or so there have been a lot of rumors concerning a new chapter in the core God of War series.  While there’s no doubt at all that we’re bound to see Kratos or the God of War universe return at some point, it did seem a bit odd that we would receive a new God of War game within the next year or so.  Of course I’m not a complete seer and don’t have deep inside sources within Sony so I don’t know if what we’ve heard is complete garbage or not.

A Small Rumor Pops Up Concerning God of War 4

A lot of bullsh!t rumors come up in the world of gaming and today something has come up that I couldn’t help but address and share with all the fine people who are reading this.  The sometimes on the money, sometimes completely off the mark folks over at PSM3 magazine have a juicy rumor about the future of the God of War franchise.
