God of War: Ascension single and multiplayer guide

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.

300's King Leonidas shown off in God of War: Ascension

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.
