God of War

First Footage of Kratos Unleashing His Fury and Rage in Mortal Kombat

When it was revealed back in December that Kratos would be joining the combatants in the newest Mortal Kombat game, I think some gamers didn’t know what to expect.  We’ve already seen Kratos pop up in a fighting game before (Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny) but that appearance wasn’t really the best and the thinking amongst some gamers was that Sony may have finally been whoring our favorite war god a bit too much.

God of War Kratos statue from Sideshow Collectibles [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The barrier for entry may be high to the point where folks could buy a used PS3 and a copy of God of War 3 for a far more reasonable price, but the God of War Kratos statue from Sideshow Collectibles is one superb piece of art and video game memorabilia. Kratos has never looked better and the statue is something that is a must have if you’re a hardcore GOW fan or are a collector of video game related products. Aside from wanting to see Kratos in a more action oriented pose, there’s essentially nothing wrong with the statue aside from the $250-260 price point, which is normal based on the quality that’s being provided.

The Pros: 

The sculpting and attention to detail on the statue is incredible and accurately portrays the look and feel of Kratos. Standing tall at 17” inches, the statue is very imposing in a good way. It may be heavy, but the base and statue itself feels very sturdy and is of the highest quality at the given price point.

The Cons: 

While he’s in an imposing pose, it would’ve been cool if there were a few extra hands like one holding a gorgon head or something equally brutal.

Over the years as we’ve seen videos games gain popularity amongst the mainstream we’ve bared witness to the ever growing business model that encompasses major video game franchises.  Sure, the video game is the base of the foundation for a company, but often a series of additional levels are built on top which includes products more accessible to gamers and consumers like t-shirts or in some cases themed beverages.  Some of the video game tie-in products we’ve seen over the last few years have ranged from questionable kitschy fair like PlayStation mints to stuff one would expect l

God of War: Ghost of Sparta release date and pre-order bonus announced

Earlier this year PS3 owners were able to experience the pure epicness that was God of War 3 and now PSP owners can soon experience the rage of Kratos, albeit on a smaller scale.  God of War’s second PSP game, Ghost of Sparta, is now set for a November 2nd release. That’s per the PlayStation Blog so it’s safe to assume that’s a locked release date.

Teaser trailer for the God of War statue from Sideshow Collectibles

Earlier this week I once again began to wonder what happened to the Sideshow Collectibles God of War statue. Announced last year, the statue has been MIA with not even a development blog for it on the Sideshow site.  One would’ve thought the statue would be released to coincide with God of War 3 but sadly we weren’t given an epic statue to go along with an epic game.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta announced for the PSP

It seems like Kratos isn’t content with being just the king of the PS3 as he also wants to dominate the PSP. Today Sony has announced God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP.  The game is being developed by Ready at Dawn who developed God of War’s previous PSP game Chain of Olympus.  This news isn’t too surprising considering recent murmurs of Ready at Dawn doing a PSP game.

God of War teaser site updated

God of War 3 may have ended on a pretty resounding note but the franchise is far from over.

Find out why Kratos is so angry in a new God of War comic book series

Over the past three God of War games we’ve gotten a nice look at why Kratos is so damn angry. Sure, he’s a warrior and a complete badass on the battlefield but he seems generally angry and a bit grumpy all the time. Yes, accidentally killing your wife & daughter and then being imbued with their ashes as a constant reminder will put a damper on anyone’s day but even after accepting that incident Kratos is still an angry man. Even despite bedding multiple hot Greek women at the same time Kratos is still an angry basterd who will disembowel anyone.
