News: God of War: Ascension Trophy Getting Patch To Please Disgruntled Bros & Hoes

God-of-War-AscensionGod of War: Ascension is a damn fine hack-and-slash title with plenty of killing to please your sadistic side, you even get to play as a man who wears very few clothes, exposing his diamond hard nipples throughout the entire game.

Yet, it’s the title of a certain trophy within the game that has received more attention than it should have, and now due to cries and pitchforks of people who aren’t able to comprehend written text within the context of a video game and its intended humour, the Trophy is being re-worked via a patch that will soon be delivered by Sony Santa Monica.

The Trophy in question is named “Bros Before Hoes” and is earned by defeating one of the main villains of the story, who happens to be female and the encounter takes place in a brothel. Yes, in a brothel. Where the word ‘hoe’ would more than likely be considered a term of endearment.

The Trophy will now be renamed “Bros Before Foes” to satisfy the idiots who were unfortunately born without a sense of humour. We mustn’t be angry with these people, we shouldn’t despise them either, instead we’ll pity them for having such a small mind. Poor bastards…

Sony Santa Monica issued the following statement on the matter:

“We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game, we are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created. As such, we’ve addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question.”

As you may already have guessed, I think this is pathetic and amounts to little more political correctness gone ape-dung. It’s a bit of humour, get over it. Imagine if people had made enough noise about Grand Theft Auto IV? They’d have us walking Liberty City saving kittens from trees whilst going on speed-dates with barley water.

God of War: Ascension is still a great game, even if one of its Trophies is getting nuked. You can read our review of God of War: Ascension here.

TGC Review: God of War: Ascension

Kratos is bGod-of-War-Ascension-coverack, well, it’s more Back to the Future, but he’s back all the same in God of War: Ascension. Does it fare well for our favourite anti-hero? Or is it a bit of a dry lunch? Read on for the full review.

Kratos first started throwing his weight around back in the good old PlayStation 2 era, with the God of War games garnering critical acclaim from bother reviewers and players alike. Then God of War made the jump to the PlayStation Portable (PSP) where we all expected it to land with a stumble, but much to our surprise, Kratos’ adventures were just as engrossing and satisfying on the PSP as they were on the PlayStation 2.

Then the PlayStation 3 came along and God of War found its new home, moving in with God of War III, with a late moving in party thrown by the God of War HD collection. It’s fair to say, we’ve seen a lot come and go with God of War, it’s been around for nearly 9 years, but it’s still swinging those chains like a youngster priming to strike.

Now we have God of War: Ascension, possibly the last God of War title that will grace the PlayStation 3, what with the much-anticipated PlayStation 4 hiding around the corner. If this should be the last time Kratos kicks ass on the PlayStation 3, then we’ve no problem with that; it’s a glorious way to end the battle.

God of War: Ascension is a prequel. Now I know what you think, prequel equals stinker. We’ve seen it happen time and time again (yeah George Lucas, I’m talking about you,) and more often than not, prequels tend to be a stain on otherwise sparkling franchises. Thankfully, we’re blessed with the good fortune that God of War‘s reputation as the supreme hack-and-slash remains untarnished, in fact, it’s had a bit of a buff and polish with some new features chucked in.

So, let’s start with what is undoubtedly the most important aspect of the game: the story. Anybody who’s followed Kratos through his journey will be familiar with the series and it’s storytelling techniques which generally, work to a high standard and is the reason we keep mashing those buttons until our thumbs are worn to the bone.

The story told in God of War: Ascension takes place ten years prior to the original God of War, yet around six months after Kratos was tricked by the wicked Ares into killing his beloved wife Lysandra and their daughter Calliope.god-of-war-ascension-kratos

You see, Kratos had sold his soul to Ares, and now in God of War: Ascension, Kratos is hell-bent on breaking the bond that ties himself and Ares together, but to do so, he must first defeat the Furies of which there are three. Three of the most evil Goddesses of the Underworld which Kratos must overcome.

Understandably, the story feels a bit forced due to the fact that we, or at least those who have played through Kratos’ epic battles already know what is set in stone for our ruthless anti-hero. It’s here that the story falters in trying to craft a new tale, but it leaves one thing missing and that’s a satisfying end to the tale. We already know how it must end and what happens in the years after, so in this respect, the story doesn’t quite match the highs (nor lows) of the previous God of War games.

Still, that being said, it’s still a good story and provides good entertainment with a strong cast of characters and a more personal look at Kratos, who has up until now been very much a cut off character. This time around we get to see what motivates, what hurts and what pisses Kratos off. In an era where video games are pushing closer to the medium of film, story content has become a big factor in single player games, God of War: Ascension is proof of studios crafting better stories to keep up with the crowd, or risk being left behind with the cardboard characters with cliché dialogue.

god-of-war-ascension-review2Fans of the series will appreciate the deeper focus on the story where as newcomers might feel a bit overwhelmed with the spewing of information and the story being told. It’s not that God of War: Ascension requires you to have played the previous entries before, but there are advantages to being a seasoned slayer. In fact, if the God of War series has passed you by all these years, this is the best place to begin, it’s the start of the epic journey, one that you can follow on for three more games on your PlayStation 3, and even pick up the portable titles for the PSP, or better yet, get them for the PlayStation Vita (PS Vita.)

Story is important to games, something that is often getting overlooked by the military shooter crowd, instead of focussing on the online component, so it’s good to see a story worth following has been created alongside a multiplayer mode, but more on that later.

Where story may be lacking at times, you’ll have no problem with the gameplay itself. It’s God of War as you know it. Brutal, mega, epic, glorious, satisfying, everything you know it is to be and more! The combat is as slick as ever with brutal combos being dished out all over the show. I found myself instantly familiar with the way the game plays, with the buttons being more or less the standard affair, so getting stuck in was no problem. Though I will warn newcomers, it may take a bit of trial and error to perfect your slaying skills, but don’t worry, we were all there at one point, but there’s a God in all of us.

Fighting the waves of enemies is good and all, but sometimes, you just need a break. These come in the form of platforming sections, sprinkled with a light dusting of puzzle-play, making use of Kratos’ new ability to basically freeze time. Yes. Freeze. Time. Where does this fit in with the games timeline? Why is it not in God of War? Did Kratos feel he was bad-ass enough that freezing time was considered a pussy move amongst the other Gods? Or did Doc Brown and Marty McFly have some hand in this? What about the other new abilities that Kratos can wield? No idea to be honest. I suppose sometimes logic and storytelling have to remain separate at times to provide us with new and enjoyable experiences…

I have to admit, the platforming sections of the game seemed a bit forced and not in line with God of War. They were good, no problems there, but it just felt like it didn’t belong. I can’t quite put my finger on it, and it may just be personal taste, but it just didn’t feel right. You however may find it as easy flowing as the rest of the game, so keep that in mind, in fact, keep the fact this entire review is my own opinion in mind. It’s totally objective, but personal preferences ultimately play a part in how we see things, I’m no exception.god-of-war-ascension

The gameplay, as I say, is locked down solid and feels fantastic to slash away at the various creatures you’ll be sending to the afterlife with your Blades of Chaos, a pair of gnarly swords with can be flung at enemies on your chains, or you can just go and do it the old-fashioned way and approach your foe, swords in hands and deliver the killing blow in person. Whatever suits you best.

It’s not all roses though. As with any game, there are flaws, without a doubt. Even the biggest and best games with astronomically big budgets have flaws, God of War: Ascension is no different. There are the occasional moments where you’ll find yourself angry with the difficulty, the seemingly impossible puzzle, or most annoyingly the camera. This is my personal annoyance, it’s something that has gotten on my nerves through the series. Amongst the glorious battles with crazy amounts of sword fodder just waiting to be cut down into Greek meat, I often found myself at a loss as to where Kratos actually was. In an effort to showcase the fantastic, and I mean really fantastic areas on which you’ll do battle, the camera is pulled so far out it’s often difficult to distinguish yourself from the crowd. You’d think being big, bald and stupidly pale would help, but it didn’t. Instead, I found good use for the reinvented ‘Rage’ mechanic. This time around you’ll gather your inner rage by beating the living bones out of foes until you automatically engage in some Kratos rage. The best use for this newly designed rage mode was, for me that is, to find myself amongst the mass.

That aside, it’s not the worst experience you could have for £40/$60, though bear in mind it won’t take as long to finish the story as in previous games, it’s a little shorter but you can still rack up at least 9-10 hours of gameplay, depending on what difficulty you play and how adventurous you are and if you’re like me, you’ll be taking your time and enjoying the visuals as much as the gameplay.

The God of War games have always pushed far ahead of the competition when it comes to graphical fidelity, but God of War: Ascension really does take it a notch higher. It’s not a massive graphical leap over God of War III, but there’s enough new technological wizardry at work that you’ll notice it’s an improvement. Characters are fantastically designed and you feel every blow when Kratos takes a hit, when he smashes the ground, cracking the surface and sending mindless enemies toppling over like a chess set. Sony Santa Monica has done a stellar job and must be more than proud of what they have achieved on hardware that’s getting on in years. I remember playing God of War II and declaring it the most lifelike game I’d ever seen. We all had that feeling about one game or another from a previous generation, but now seeing God of War: Ascension in action makes me feel a bit stupid. If graphical fidelity is what you like in your games, you wont be disappointed, it’s a stunner that uses the PlayStation 3 and its complicated guts to create a stunning world for us to enjoy.

Now, that’s about it for the single player. I’m not going into the end, that’ something you’ll have to find out by playing the game. Like I said earlier, we all know what the eventual conclusion must be, but it’s still worth experiencing first hand rather than reading it on the internet, trust me, you’ll enjoy it.

God of War: Ascension features a series first in the fact there is a multiplayer mode. Yes, a multiplayer mode. The God of War games have always been about the single player experience, something that you enjoyed by yourself for hours on end, long into the early hours of the morning, maybe taking it in turns with a friend who’s staying over. Maybe, if they have behaved themselves and have shown respect to your console and discs.god-of-war-ascension-review-1 (Tip: Don’t lend your best games to friends who think the games case is a temporary method of transport between your house and his.)

For me, the multiplayer was very much a hit and miss experience. The variety of game modes is nice, but they just don’t feel right in God of War. Seriously, Capture the Flag belongs in first person shooters or third person shooters, not in a game where Gods pummel the Holy (or unholy) shit out of each other. That said, of the variety of game modes, there was some fun to be had in Team Deathmatch, the battles you can pull off, especially if you have a group of mates pitted against each other online, are excellent. It’s definitely more fun to play with people you know, kind of like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

I won’t count the multiplayer in the final score, because for me, I’m just not interested in the multiplayer aspect of the game, it’s not appealing and I can’t in good conscience tell you that it’s good or bad based on my experience with the mode.


God of War: Ascension plays to the familiar tune we’ve all be humming to since God of War appeared on the PlayStation 2 and thankfully, it’s still got the tempo, tune and rhythm to keep you humming along happily, as you murder your way through the strong, but shorter story. God of War fans will appreciate the deeper experience and what it means to be Kratos as well as some hard as nails action with awesome set pieces to make not only your jaw hit the floor, but your face.

Story: The story isn’t the strongest of the series, but it’s perfectly serviceable and will keep you entertained as you smash your way to Godliness. 8.0

Gameplay: If you’ve played God of War before, you know what to expect, but you’ll still be thrown the occasional curve ball with some new features and some slight reworkings of previous mechanics such as the Rage mode. 9.0

Graphics: You’ll be surprised at how God of War: Ascension has managed to best it’s predecessor in the graphics department. The epic battles have never looked so good, even if you do get a bit lost in the battle at time. 9.5

Sound: The characters are voiced by a strong cast who lend themselves to the story without the slightest hint of silliness, as silly as some may seem. Battle cries and the thunder of your enemies attempting to turn you into Kratos juice works well, the music however, is a missed opportunity. 8.5

Replay Value: Based solely off the single player offering, you can have more than one run through the story and still have a good time. For that fact that multiplayer is there, you can extend the life of your expensive purchase if it’s your sort of thing, otherwise, there’s a ton of Trophies to collect, some of which will test your patience. 8.0

The Verdict – 8.6 A worthy experience, you will feel like the God of War once you’re done with this one.

News: God of War: Ascension Demo Plays God On February 26th

god of war: ascensionKratos will be making a bloody mess soon enough with God of War: Ascension‘s single-player demo becoming available on the Playstation Network on February 26th, giving you ample opportunity to get to grips with Kratos’s mighty sword. No euphemism there…

Us Europeans and U.K residents will have to wait an extra day to try out God of War: Ascension, as the European Playstation Store doesn’t get updated until Wednesday, but it’s surely worth the wait.

God of War: Ascension is set to release in just over a months time for the Playstation 3, booming its way onto shelves on March 12th for North America and March 15th for the U.K and Europe.

News: Buy God of War: Ascension Gets You The Last of Us Demo

the last of us joel and ellieEager to get a bit of hands on time with The Last of Us? You’re not the only one, and even more, you can!

Sony has recently announced that anyone who purchases God of War: Ascension will be able to download and try out a demo for Naughty Dog’s upcoming post-apocalyptic adventure, The Last of Us.

Now, there are a couple of things that should be made clear before you close your browser and run out the house to camp in front of your local video game store.

  1. You’ll be camping in the cold for a while. God of War: Ascension doesn’t release until March 12th.
  2. The demo won’t be immediately available, there will be a section of the main menu for The Last of Us and instructions on how to get your mitts on the demo, which will be available at a later date.

So, just so it’s 100% clear, the demo won’t be available on the day God of War: Ascension is released, but it will be available sometime shortly after, though no official date has been confirmed by either Sony or Naughty Dog.

Remember back in the day, the good old days that is, when a demo was just that -  a demo. A free trial of what you will get if you buy the game. Now however, we’re being forced to buy into other games to get access to a demo for another game. If you are eager to play some of The Last of Us and also love the God of War series, then this is no problem, but for people like me, people who aren’t that interested in some angry God running about in barely any clothes, whipping people with kinky chains, it’s a bit of a disappointment.

Still, I’ve no doubt that the demo will be made available to all at some point, this will most likely be an early access reward for those who bought a brand new Sony exclusive.

Anyway, it’s still good news, if you don’t want to buy into God of War: Ascension just to get early access to a demo, maybe one of your friends will have it and you’ll be able to have a go at theirs? It’s just not worth buying a game brand new if you know you won’t enjoy it, just to play a demo.

Will you be buying God of War: Ascension? Are you doubly excited now that it comes with a demo for The Last of Us? Let us know in the comments below.

Feature: Top 15 Most Anticipated Games For 2013

We all most likely have at least one game which we’re looking forward to in for 2013. Whether it be The Last of Us, Gears of War, or the Tomb Raider reboot, there’s no doubt that 2013 will be a very important year for games. Not only are we getting some of the best games that consoles like the 360 and PS3 have seen yet, the long rumored PS4 and 720 will probably come out later that year. Now, without further ado , here are some of the most anticipated games of 2013, (in no particular order).

Also, just so you know before we start, I originally had the title have 5, then felt the need to increase that number to 10, but by the time I finished, I realized 10 just wasn’t enough. Now, on to the list.


15. Dead Space 3







Whether or not you enjoyed the second one, this one does look promising. Visceral Games is back, with a bit of change, too. We’ll be getting co-op, and a new executive producer has been assigned, Arjan Bruseee (former Guerilla Games employee), so expect some great set pieces. All in all, you definitely shouldn’t forget about this one. February 5th, 2013.

14. Tomb Raider                  






A reboot of the once very popular Tomb Raider franchise, a new take on the series by Crystal Dynamics is leaving many fans of the series and newcomers in awe and at the amazing looking graphics, the gameplay, and the idea. Whether or not you’re a long-time fan of the series, you should definitely keep an eye on this one. March 5th, 2013.

13. God of War: Ascension





The earliest prequel yet in the God of War series – this one looks 10 times better than any God of War game we’ve seen yet, and we’re quite excited for it. I mean, sure, Kratos has screamed enough already, but what’s a little more? And, to top it all off, there’s multiplayer. Yup, you read that right. March 12th, 2013.

12. Aliens: Colonial Marines 





Gearbox has taken a break from their Borderlands  series  and is taking a shot at the Alien franchise. The game will come with multiplayer and a campaign, using iconic weapons from the movie. The game sees the return of the Xenomorphs (obviously) and different enemies such as the “Runner” from the movie Alien 3. February 12th, 2013.

11. Gears of War: Judgment





So whether or not EPIC Games is returning for the prequel to the Gears of War series, a subsidiary studio based in Poland called People Can Fly will be handling the game, and damn does it look good so far. Not only will the game be adding new multi-player modes, but apparently the campaign will be emotional (again!), so stay tuned for a review. March 19th, 2013.

10. Rayman Legends





Ubisoft Montpellier is back with their reboot of the Rayman  series, and wow, it looks better than ever. It won some best platformer awards from some notable video game websites at E3, and it will be released exclusively for the Wii U… That’s not to say though it won’t come to consoles, whether they be this gen or next gen. February 26, 2013.

9. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time 





So whether or not Sucker Punch is back, the guys over at Sanzaru aren’t completely new to the Sly Cooper series. They managed the port of the original three to the Playstation 3, and Sucker Punch has been helping and overseeing the development of the game to make sure they get it right. From what we’ve seen, it looks just like a Sly Cooper game, and all previews have been positive so far. February 5th, 2013.

8. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch






Level 5 is back on with the Playstation brand with a hotly anticipated port of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Although the game has been released in Japan, it is still being localized for North America and Europe. If you haven’t played the demo on the PS Store yet, we highly suggest it, it’s fantastic. You can’t deny the game looks beautiful, and previews are saying the game is emotional, fun, and just downright awesome. January 22nd, 2013.

7. Remember Me





Originally a PS3 exclusive (now multi-platform), Capcom has apparently decided to take a shot with a brand new IP by Dontnod Entertainment. We’ll be playing as a woman named Nilin, a ‘memory hunter’ who will literally change people’s memories. There will be many combos to learn that will help the player, and believe us, there are a lot. 50,000+ according to Capcom. May, 2013.

6. Grand Theft Auto V




Yes, Rockstar is back ladies and gentlemen. This is quite possibly the most anticipated game for 2013, and the game looks simply stunning. Gameplay sounds very interesting, and you just can’t beat Rockstar North when it comes to having fun in open-world environments. We’re returning to San Andreas (Rockstar’s take on Los Angeles) and we’ll be able to visit Los Santos and Las Venturas (San Francisco and Las Vegas). Spring, 2013.

5. Bioshock: Infinite




Irrational games is back with their third entry into their Bioshock series, and this time we’re no where near Rapture, but rather the above ground (floating) city of Columbia. Columbia is a steam punk style floating city, run by factions set on keeping it for “pure American citizens only”. Expect to have some great gameplay, awesome set pieces, and an engaging story. March 26th, 2013.

4. Metro: Last Light




Although Metro 2033 was a flawed gem, 4A Games is looking to fix any and all problems with their sequel (Yes, the stealth parts were just unbearable). Last Light be be returning to the roots, and this time it will not be based off of it’s book counterpart, Metro 2034, but instead an entirely new story. We’ll follow Artyom again as he makes his way underground and aboveground in a post-apocalyptic Moscow. March, 2013.

3. Beyond: Two Souls




Quantic Dream is at it again, with another PS3 exclusive that looks downright beautiful. The game will follow a young girl named “Jodie Holmes” as she goes through 15 years of her life discovering the after life, death, entities, and more. Ellen Page will be playing Jodie, and she noted in an interview that the script is around 2000 pages long, so expect an incredible, engaging story with some awesome set pieces. May 25th, 2013.

2. The Last of Us




I don’t think this game will need much of an explanation. Anyone on the internet will most likely know what this is all about, but in case you don’t. Joel and Ellie respectively, 15 years after the world goes to hell, they’re one of the few remaining people who are sane or alive in (presumably) the world, and they’re heading towards a currently unknown destination. We’d highly suggest you go watch the trailers if you haven’t already, because the game looks like it’s going to be one of the best games this generation. May 7th, 2013.

1. Watch_Dogs



Everything is connected. It’s worth noting we have no window of release for this game yet, or whether or not it’s even on the current generation of consoles, but I think it’s high up on most people’s list for “anticipated games”. The game’s antihero Aiden Pearce can use any device tied to the city’s central operating system (ctOS) as a weapon against it. The game itself has a very interesting premise, and the fact that it’s a new IP is generating lots of hype around the gaming universe. 2013-2014


Bonus: Honorable Mentions:

Arma III


The Elder Scrolls Online

Company of Heroes 2

- Plants vs. Zombies 2

- Hotline Miami 2

Crysis 3

Star Wars 1313

Metal Gear Rising 

Devil May Cry Reboot


South Park: The Stick of Truth

Dead Island: Riptide


Yakuza 5

Pikmin 3

Bayonetta 2

Total War: Rome II


What is interesting to note about practically all these titles (with the exception of Wii U exclusive titles) they’re coming out in early or in the middle of 2013, which can only mean one thing… new consoles at the end of 2013? We’ve heard practically nothing, but I think it’s now safe to assume they’re coming out then.

Until that time comes around though, be sure to stick around for more news, articles, and features.
