God of War: Ascension's single-player demo hits Feb 26 photo
God of War: Ascension's single-player demo hits Feb 26
by Conrad Zimmerman

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 for you to get it next week, on the 20th, and all you have to do is be on the winning team in the game's social experience, "Rise of the Warrior," which is currently in its second round of play. There are a few other solid reasons to participate, of course, such as the promise of DLC weapons and the opportunity to annoy all your friends with mythological references.

I never turn down God of War, but I have little interest in the multiplayer element of this new title, making this news right up my alley. Nice that it's going to have a demo of the single-player content so that I can wet my whistle in preparation for the full event and not be limited to the multiplayer betas.

Roses and tears: 10 depressing videogame romances
by Taylor Stein

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 solitude induced weep-fest. For the videogame characters below, the luxury of loneliness is miniature in comparison.

Take a look at ten relationships gone awry in the worst ways possible.

Preview: The first 30 minutes of God of War: Ascension
by Dale North

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 single player side at a press event in Los Angeles. And instead of some controlled, limited demo, they just plopped down the first 30 minutes of the game in front of us, letting us play it as if we just popped in the disc. And instead of forcing me to recap the whole thing for you, they've given us video of exactly what I played.

 In the video above you aren't seeing my play through, but you are seeing pretty close to what I experienced. You'll see for yourself how good it is.
