by Ernice Gilbert on April 12th, 2011, under Capcom, Hot, News, PS3, Xbox 360

It’s no joke. The trailer you’re about to behold goes beyond mental – the thing doesn’t even make sense. But who cares? From what I gather, Asura’s Wrath is beginning to make a name for itself, and with 2012 some time off, I’ll be watching this one with curiosity.

Next God Of War Title To Include Multiplayer

by Ernice Gilbert on March 29th, 2011, under Hot, News, PS3, Sony

It’s almost extinct, the single player only game. You have the Final Fantasy titles, Dragon Age from Bioware and amongst others, God of War from Santa Monica. But looking at the positions the latter company’s currently hiring for, there’s a clear indication that the next God of War installment will feature a multiplayer component.

Plan of buying God of War: Ghost of Sparta, but wanted to hold out until the game’s released and goes down in price? You shouldn’t. You could, but then you’d miss out on of some really great incentives Sony’s offering for those who choose to pre-order the PSP title.

by Ernice Gilbert on October 12th, 2010, under EA, Hot, News, Visceral

The God of War ripoff Dante’s Inferno is the latest hack-n-slash title to compete with God of War, and although is a decent effort indeed, it failed to even come close to what the PS3 exclusive offers. But will there be a sequel? Visceral Games says no.

Not now, at least.

Numbers: God of War III Hits 3 Million Sold, Is That Enough?

by Ernice Gilbert on October 12th, 2010, under Hot, News, Santa Monica, Sony

It’s the best Hack-n-Slash title ever made. There are countless “counterfeits” sprouting from all corners of the industry, copy and pasting many elements of Santa Monica’s game, and like a carbon copy, duplicating said elements in theirs. Those games have gone on to sell millions, not more than God of War III, but close enough.

Here’s my question? Is selling 3 million copies of one of this generation’s most celebrated titles enough to be called a success? I’ll never understand why other games sell tens of millions while those that have defined the industry struggle to keep up.

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow’s A “Small Game From A Small Studio” Reckons Cox

We Thought by now Castlevania: LOS producer David Cox would have kept personal his feelings about some of the game’s reviews circulating the web, but apparently that’s not the case.

by Ernice Gilbert on September 23rd, 2010, under Capcom, Hot, News

Capcom’s Asura’s Wrath was unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show complete with screenshots and a God of War-ish trailer.
