100% Series Retrospective: God of War photo
100% Series Retrospective: God of War
by Chris Carter

[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 do even more of them from here on out.

I hope that you have learned a bit about the franchises I've covered so far, as my plan is to inspire others to share their thoughts and feelings with the series of their choice as well (which many of you have done!).

In addition to Metroid, Mega Man Classic, the Mega Man spinoffs, Mega Man X, Splinter Cell, The Elder Scrolls, and Devil May Cry, I also have another one ready to go for 2013: God of War.

New releases: Slicing and dicing in Metal Gear Rising photo
New releases: Slicing and dicing in Metal Gear Rising
by Fraser Brown

I'm aching all over after enjoying the weekend just a wee bit too much, so I don't really feel ready for another Monday. Not having the ability to stop time, I'm just going to have to power through. At least there are plenty of games to help me forget the fact that I feel like death warmed up.

Two big releases are looking set to dominate this week: the obnoxiously named Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Crysis 3, which I guess also has a silly, if more mundane, title. I'm not particularly excited about either of them, but as a chap who favors swords over guns, I'm far more likely to indulge in Raiden's cyborg adventures than any nanosuit shenanigans.

Also dropping this week is Paradox's war-focused Napoleonic romp, March of the Eagles; PC puzzler, The Bridge; crazy platforming, exploring, and turn-based strategy in A Valley Without Wind 2; things for your old PSP; and a bunch of DLC.

What are you splashing out on this week?
