I want a question answered that Santa Monica seems to be dodging. If all future maps will be free in God of War Ascension so everyone can be on the same page with their friends,,,then what does the Season Pass in the Collectors Edition of GoW do?

God of War Ascension’s reviews so far are ridiculously subjective! What have reviews become? Genuine statements of facts or just personal opinion pieces?

Oh Kratos is kinder, there are no titans….8/10. What? Are these serious complaints or just facetious nitpicking?
How is this game even being judged? These reviews suggest this game is inferior when it’s just a different direction for the series.

Reviews these days are all over the place and I haven’t paid them any mind now for months.

Hey Sid and Nick Quantum Theory are you kidding,why does sony put that crap of a game on the PSN the average score by reviewers was a 3/10.And you could buy that game anywere for 5 bucks.Please do not insult us by putting a 20 dollar price on this total crap.

From what I heard so far, especially from Polygon’s review, I assume God of War: Ascension gonna have a day 1 digital then?

It’s a bummer that it appears that the PS1 imports are not going to be translated, because a couple of them (Favorite Dear and Sentimental Graffiti) are looking to be interesting.

The Thing! Good taste, Sid!

So the Assassins don’t even know that they’re from a log line of Assassins but somehow end up being Assassins. Like Conner, from what I heard of ACIV Edward meets the Assassins and then become one. Wonder if there is more to this. Cause it seems like the Assassins are always clueless.

Amazing title for the blogcast this week Sid and Nick. I like what you did there.
