God of War: Ascension – Aha! So that’s where Sony goes with it


From Revenge to Avenge

I just wrote a article wondering how a unangry Kratos would reflect ‘Ascension’s’ gameplay.

GOW got a new Game director (Todd Papy) but may not get new gameplay after all.

Kratos has spent most of his gaming life filled with over-the-top anger and revenge but now I might have come across some insight into how this new story may unfold.

While minding my business listening to my Will Smith CD…well actually I was on my PS3 browser, I came across a promo  linking me to Sony’s website and it seems in the fine print Sony was kind enough to  hint that the story would center around Kratos seeking freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family.

Seeking freedom? Freedom from what? Redemption? What does he need to be redeemed from? And the clarity to avenge his family?!!! I don’t know about you but for me that sounds like a recipe to let the bloodletting ONCE-AGAIN-COMMENCE!!! Ok, Ok, Sony Santa Monica…so you gave us a story of REVENGE now we get  a story of AVENGE huh?

So now let the intrigue and speculation begin. What will happen to his family that will actually cause him to have to go into avenge mode? I guess will have to stay tuned to find out. This could get real interesting.

What do you speculate will be the setup for what looks like will turn out to be another miraculous story? CCU wants to hear you.

  1. hmmmmm….now i’m really intrigued. He’s the one who killed his fam…by accident of course (rolls eyes) so how will he avenge that? Maybe this goes deeper? Remember he has a brother and I believe the brother died/was killed. I’m foggy on that story but it might actually have to do with his paternal family rather than the one he had with his wife. If that’s the case. OOOOH BUDDY! This will be sick. I’m still waiting for one of his siblings to make an appearance in a future game but i’m getting ahead of myself!
