God of War


The latest update for God of War: Ascension has brought with it a bunch of new stuff for players to try out. Namely the addition of a one versus one Bout of Honor mode. The best of seven match pits two players against each o...


A common argument in the ongoing debate over gender and videogames is that women and men both are equally objectified. Is that really true? As always, Emperor God King Jim Sterling puts His holy foot down and delivers wisdom true to the masses. He totally isn't smug about it, either!


Headlining today's game-themed Gold Box event on Amazon is $20 off God of War: Ascension and $70 off that full-series God of War PlayStation 3 bundle. These offers will be good throughout today, while everything els...


Recently, the PS3 and Xbox 360 each saw prequels for their leading franchises -- God of War: Ascension and Gears of War: Judgment. According to analyst firm Cowen & Company, the two GOWs failed to impress at retail. ...


The next update for God of War: Ascension will address some issues with multiplayer as well as add a couple of features. For starters, Sony Santa Monica intends to raise the level cap from 30 up to 40 while adding one it...


When God of War: Ascension came out, people seemed to forget that it was an action game, and occasionally may put up a fight. Much like the penultimate fight in the first God of War (against the Kratos clones), Ascension has ...


God of War: Ascension has been giving a lot of people trouble over the past few days, but if you play your cards right, it doesn't have to be a difficult experience -- or, say, nearly as difficult as Metal Gear Rising. Like Onimusha and Devil May Cry before it, a lot of the game's edge can be taken off with careful planning of your weapon experience levels, and a few other tips along the way.


In another casual discussion from Dtoid's news room, I'm joined by Jordan Devore and Alasdair Duncan to discuss the controversy surrounding God of War's "Bros before Hos" trophy. We also kibitz around the canning of the BioS...


[Read on for a description of every God of War game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2013.] 2013 is an exciting year. Now that I know you guys enjoy reading my Quests, I'm going to make an effort to d...


Greetings! If you're watching today's show and wondering why Max happens to look so much like Adam Sessler, it's because he recently got a full-body makeover to look like Adam Sessler. Don't act like you wouldn't either, if ...


Recently, we got word of how Poseidon's crew would roll in God of War: Ascension, and now we have some info on Hades' posse. Evidently, followers of Hades don't particularly excel at offense or defense, but through spells li...


The "Bros Before Hos" trophy rewarded to players in God of War: Ascension has caused some upset among critics. Players, however, should not have the same issue, according to developer Sony Santa Monica, who told Joystiq that ...


Another Monday rolls up, acting like it's the boss of the week, so that can only mean one thing: a week of new releases. I'll be saving my cash this week, not really seeing anything to interest me, but I may grab God of War:...


In what may be considered a storm in a teacup, not quite gaining the same traction as other controversies, God of War: Ascension has caused a bit of a stir with a "misogynistic" Trophy, an award you get as part of the main ca...


Warning -- do not watch the above video without subjecting yourself to minor spoilers for God of War: Ascension. As you may have heard, Adam Sessler recently played through God of War: Ascension, and was disgusted by a parti...


God of War: Ascension is finally out, and players have been up in arms about one particular part of the game -- the Trial of Archimedes. In this section found near the end of the game, you fight three large waves of enemies w...


How do you top something that was already considered over-the-top? Especially when this particular brand of over-the-top has become pretty familiar since in past eight years? We all know that God of War's protagonist, Kratos,...


Like it or not, God of War: Ascension will have multiplayer. As you may know from the beta, your character can pledge allegiance to a certain god -- this new video from Sony showcases Poseidon, "a god to be reckoned with." O...


God of War: Ascension's fourth multipalyer mode is Trial of the Gods, a two-player co-op (or solo) mode where you have to face five increasingly difficult waves of enemies. The twist here is that you're racing against the cl...


Wow. I totally forgot this was happening. So yeah, King Leonidas from the movie 300 is in God of War: Ascension as a multiplayer character. You can play as the King of Spartans only if you pre-order the game from GameStop. Pre-ordering Ascension from any other retailer will get you The Mythological Heroes Pack. This will let you play as Perseus, Orion, Odysseus, and Achilles.


It's always interesting to take step back, breath for a second, and see how creatures and characters are made -- since, you know, we usually just slice them up in five seconds and completely forget about them. God of War: As...


As a nice tie-in for God of War: Ascension's release in March, European PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting a copy of the original game remastered in high definition at no additional cost. You'll have the next two weeks ...


Not every hobby is created equally nor is every pastime equally respected. As a gaming enthusiast, videogames represent the epitome of entertainment in my eyes. They alone reign atop my personal pedestal of happiness, a speci...


Later today, look for the shiny new single-player demo for God of War: Ascension on the PlayStation Network, not too far ahead of the March 12 release date. From what Sony tells us, it sounds like it's the same one I played ...


Sony has revealed the release date for the single-player demo of God of War: Ascension, which we have been told will be proliferating through the tubes of the internet on February 26. Not soon enough for you? There's also way...


Valentine’s Day inspires a variety of emotions. While love is in the air for many, cupid has more sinister plans for a select few. A poor Valentine's Day for an average person might include seeing a movie alone or a sol...


In this new video from Sony, we get a further glimpse into the motion capture process, specifically in regards to how Kratos comes to life in the upcoming God of War: Ascension. I don't know about you guys, but I can't get e...


We've been seeing bits of pieces of upcoming PS3 game God of War: Ascension since last year, but we've really only seen it's multiplayer side. That changed this week when director Todd Pappy and his team unveiled the game's s...


If you missed today's live Destructoid Show, you missed all the important news ever, and there's no way possible that you were properly informed by any other outlet because our journalistic integrity and timeliness is unmatch...


If you love beautiful voices and really depressing footage of innocent people dying, I have the perfect video for you! This new God of War: Ascension live-action trailer spot shows Kratos getting his smile on, and, uh, certa...


Are you itching to get your hands on the new God of War? This video should placate you until then, as it's the first full thirty minutes of the game, unfettered by commentary, compliments of Polygon. What you're getting is t...


Kratos takes on a manticore in this new God of War: Ascension video, and in typical GoW fashion, it's not pretty. What you're about to watch is a video explaining a boss fight, all the way from the initial creative process, ...


That "snazzy" Garnet Red PlayStation 3 will be available in North America later this year, but you're going to have to get a whole lot of God of War should you want the limited-edition console. Sony has announced the God of W...


This "Game Day 2013 Teaser" video just appeared on the official PlayStation YouTube channel. While it's unmarked except for the date "February 1, 2013," it sure does look like it's hyping something related to God of War. Spe...


Are you planning to buy SimCity (physical copy), Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, or Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel before launch? Amazon is throwing in a $20 credit on all four titles, which I don't need to tell you is strongly wort...


In a move that may very well get people who were already going to buy God of War: Ascension to pick up a copy sooner than later, it's been announced that Kratos' new game will include early access to a demo for The Last of Us...


The half-minute teaser video for single-player in God of War: Ascension looked good, but there wasn't a whole lot of substance to be found in the footage. Thankfully, the powers that be are gearing up to put multiplayer on th...


Much of the promotional work on God of War: Ascension has been centered around the game's new multiplayer mode. Which is fine, but I think most long-time fans will be buying this prequel for its single-player campaign, leavin...


The team behind God of War: Ascension has shared a behind the scenes videos showing how they started life on the multiplayer component to the game. The video spans over two years of the development process, and it's really c...
