The best boss battles of 2010 (God of War III)

Posted on December 29, 2010

A good boss battle is like a fine wine. Refined, elegant in its execution and quite likely to kill you fourteen times on the spin. Wait, scratch that last one. Unusually, 2010 has seen a string of games with bosses that not only didn’t suck, but actually proved to be some of the biggest highlights of their titles. So if you’re keen to go back and reminisce about fighting feral tigers in casinos or popping a deity’s eyeballs like juicy grapes, keep on a reading…

Kratos Will Appear In Mortal Kombat On PS3, Other Characters Possibly Leaked

Posted on December 08, 2010

We’ve seen crossovers in fighting games before (Link/Heihachi/Spawn in Soul Calibur II, Yoda and Vader in Soul Calibur IV, etc), but few are as perfect a fit as an appearance we’ve recently learned about. According to the latest issue of OPM, the God of War himself will be fully playable in the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.

He won’t be selectable in the main story mode, but in VS mode he’ll feature his own full moveset, complete with fatalities. David Jaffe, director of the original God of War, has already enthusiastically commented about the inclusion on his Twitter page:

LOVE that Kratos is in the new MK. So bummed he’s not in the story portion. Heard about it from Ed at E3 this year and had to keep super mum on it but man, ****ing LOVE it. He totally fits in that world. I **** you not- on some level I feel like all the characters I work on are alive and that I have a relationship with them and I can tell you, if I know Kratos- and I do!- he’s ****ing LOVING his time in the MK Universe. I bet he makes a **** ton of friends there. He should pull Zeus in and ****ing leave his ass there!

As a huge fan of both God of War and Mortal Kombat, this news definitely gets me even more excited for a game that already looks amazing. One has to wonder about whether the game will also feature an exclusive character for the 360 version.

In addition to the Kratos news, some leaked info from the official MK site may have revealed some previously unannounced fighters. Goro, Quan Chi, Stryker (ugh), Noob Saibot, Sindel, Kabal, Smoke, Shang Tsung, and Ermac can all be heard in the video below. Other videos with the audio have been quickly pulled from YouTube, so don’t be surprised if it gets pulled any minute.

We’ll be sure to update with any news regarding the new Mortal Kombat as soon as we hear it.

Kickass Kratos cosplay is part cardboard Terminator, part ghostly god murderer (God of War III)

Posted on December 07, 2010

As follically-challenged former Greek gods with daddy issues go, Kratos is definitely in our top 36 favourites. But you know who’s above him? A piece of cardboard. Specifically several pieces of cardboard that have been shoved on a man to create the ultimate in boxy Kratos cosplay. Arnie’s Austrian cyborg ain’t got anything on this corrugated killer…

Sony also notes that for a limited time specially marked boxes of Ghost of Sparta will include  vouchers for a Deimos skin playable in God of War III. When playing as Deimos, you’re given a defense boost, as well as sizable health, magic, and god orb increases.

If you’ve decided to spring for the Ghost of Sparta PSP bundle, the Deimos voucher is included by default. For PSPgo owners, your chance to download the skin falls between November 2 and 9.

God of War: Ghost of Sparta trailer has family drama + bonus item revealed

Posted on October 08, 2010
More epic Greek mythology awaits us in God of War: Ghost of Sparta.

When God of War 3 dropped on the PS3 earlier this year there was a nice sense of closure to the series.  Without being an ass and spoiling the game, the journey of Kratos indeed came to a satisfying ending that left a 10% chance of a sequel some point down the road.  Then shortly after GOW3 Sony announced God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP.  Serving as bridge between the first two games in the series, Ghost of Sparta has a lot going for it but to some there was a feeling of “too much, too soon, same old GOW.”  After watching this new trailer for Ghost of Sparta, I t

Where Does God Of War Go Next?

Posted on October 01, 2010

God of War 3 concludes the story of Kratos’ revenge against the gods. Even though this tale is done, Sony is not going to let this franchise wither. The PSP games fill in details on important periods in the God of War timeline, but Sony can’t keep tapping into the lost years forever. So that begs the question, what’s next for the franchise?

The previous games have given us a few hints as to where the series can go next. The special features in the first God of War teased a conflict between Kratos and his dead brother. Click the video to see this shelved idea.

Sony has even toyed with the idea of a modern day spin dealing with the recovery of the body of Kronos. You can see this leap for the series in the video below.

Do you think either of these directions could work for the next God of War? If not, what other directions would you like to see the series go in? Should Kratos return as the protagonist?

God of War Art Book Makes Us Cry

Posted on September 17, 2010

Maybe it’s the gorgeous artwork displayed inside, and maybe it’s the paper cut we just gave ourselves under the nail of our thumb, but as soon as we got The Art of God of War III we started crying.

The Art of God of War III sells for $65 and starts shipping mid-October. But we just got out copies in the office, so here’s a little tease of what you can expect to find inside.
