The lights are on
Ever since Kratos made his debut in 2005, he's stabbed, sliced, and ripped his way into gamers' hearts. His newest adventure takes a step back in the series' timeline, and looks at the angry fella before he became the God of War.
Watch below to see Andrew Reiner and myself take a look at Ascension and discuss its quality in comparison to its predecessors. Also, be sure to check out our live stream of the game between 4pm and 6pm Central today.

It may be six, but technically this is just the start of his wrath and vengeance.
I sympathize with ya Dan, that bug-stuff was GROSS. Gorgeous graphics though.
i really enjoyed the multiplayer beta for the short time i could play it. Maybe that's just me.
Also: Why do you play parts of the game that were part of the demo? Show us some new stuff xD
Great episode. Thinking about trying this out. The demo was fun.
Honestly after GOW 3 I am finished with the series. I enjoyed 3 but I saw it as an ending to the series so I don't think I'll be checking this out. Also I don't really care for prequels.
Looks like God of War. More of the same, which is ok. I'll get it eventually.
Looks like not important story of God of War series.
Hehe don't knock it till you try it Dan, the MP's actually pretty darn fun, definitely helps maintain the game's longevity and replay value since, if you're persistent, you can bust through the entire single-player campaign in a sitting or two.
so is this what happens when the T-Virus infects greek mythology?
This looks awesome. Short on new ideas but i feel they are saving the new stuff for the inevitable PS4 gow4. That annoyingly difficult part near the end of the game scares me though...nothing makes me curse at my tv like GOW does haha
I'm glad I played the demo. Just bought Tomb Raider instead, and I'm very happy now :)
Hmmm, I have no opinion on this.
Looks fun. I'll have to pick it up some day. (When its cheaper)
LMAO! It's the G-Virus, God Of War Style.
Wow that was pretty epic. I am probably most likely going to pick this game up on Monday to play on my days off. God of War is such a bada##! No it's not nothing relatively new for the series, but then again when the new consoles come out later this year maybe we will see something with new ideas for god of war. No matter what it is still one of the best action game series EVER made. Even if the story isn't that different or new, the gameplay is always satisfying for me. Totally bada##, I mean who would want to mess with Kratos? Not me.
I really wish I could have gotten into the God of War series. This game looks really good and so did all the original ones. My friend even let me borrow the HD remakes of the PS2 games for PS3 and I have not tried them. I know they are good and I don't know what I am waiting for! Really good look at this game. Hopefully ill get into them soon. Good Test Chamber.
