Like God of War

Champions, your incredible patience for our upcoming 1v1 “Bout of Honor” mode has not gone unnoticed, and will be fulfilled in short order this month.

This week, bring some Olympus style fireworks to the God of War: Ascension Arena with our Arsenal of the Gods Preview Extravaganza! We are unlocking our entire arsenal of available DLC weapons for a free extended preview in-game.

God of War: Ascension on PS3

Right now, jump in to God of War: Ascension Multiplayer and get a brutal hands-on test drive with 11 of our DLC weapons for free, in every Multiplayer mode. Wield the latest Titanic Hammers, Weapons of Judgment, Legendary Spears, the Blades of Artemis and Thanatos, and more. These weapons will be unlocked and ready for you the moment you jump in to customize your Warrior.

  • Spear of Hyperion
  • Hammer of Atlas
  • Hammer of Hephaestus

Hey SSM, you know what’s even cooler? Bringing back Dart Feld to All-stars as DLC! #ReleaseDart

SSM this is all nice and all, and I love Kratos, but you know what we really want?

Dart from Legend of Dragoon in Playstation All-Stars. We know he was in at one point, already modeled. Please finish him for us. Dart is a great warrior, much like Kratos, Dart’s family was destroyed, much like Kratos, Dart favors the color red, much like Kratos.

If you could give Dart even a fraction of that love that Kratos gets, we would give that love back ten-fold. #ReleaseDart

Long time PSNer but my first time ever posting on the playstation blog, I see a lot of good updates from time to time and GoW Ascension is getting lots of love and that’s great, however might I suggest sharing some of your love with the other franchises such as Twisted Metal, Starhawk, oh and Playstation All-Stars?

From what I’ve seen this game has such a large cult following, it would please the fans to released our beloved, sword-wielding, spikey headed RPG hero, of course I’m talking about Dart from the Legend of the Dragoon Series! #ReleaseDart

The weapons and armour are available individually – that’s microtransactions in a paid game, the same kind of dirty tactics Electronic Arts uses. The downloadable weapons and armour are also overpowered – that’s pay-to-win tactics. I’m ashamed of Sony and Santa Monica Studio for allowing such tactics which borders on being a scam. I thought be SCEA and Santa Monica Studio had more integrity than that. I passionately enjoyed “God of War: Ascension”, the multiplayer, I own “God of War III”, all the HD remakes and “God of War: Chains of Olympus” for my PSP. I also enjoyed “Kinetica” when I had a PS2. I’m heartbroken that Santa Monica Studio would do this.

I too would love to see Dart return, he was one of the most demanded characters for the game. Plus the game really need a RPG character. Dart would have amazing combos as well. Hope this support from this help gets Dart into the game and hopefully show the amount of love for PS All-Stars and Legend of Dragoon have to support both games futures as DLC and sequels to PS All-Stars and Legend of Dragoon. #ReleaseDart

Kratos is a Greek mythology fanfic Mary Sue and his popularity is a sad commentary on the intellectual void America’s public school systems are creating of the nation’s youth.

I love the passion you are putting in God of War, but we would like some passion even for other games you own. Dart was almost complete for PlayStation All-Stars. Why don’t include him so? Fans really love All-Stars you know? #ReleaseDart

I like how this butt hole completely stopped responding to everyone because they care more about PSASBR then this trash of a game that they slapped the GoW brand on. This is easily the worst God of War in the series and everyone at Sony Santa Monica should be ashamed at this awful work.

On top of that, you guys took control over PSASBR and did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING with it. You guys are an awful team and, quite possibly, the worst team Sony owns right now. I can’t think of a more useless team. At least Team Ico doesn’t want to release their game because they want it to be perfect for fans. At least we hear from them on occasion. Give the fans what we want, PSASBR DLC.

Dear SSM,

Speaking of DLC…I know of a certain game that had a dlc character canned (Dart for PSASBR) and was wondering if you could please bring him back please? This game is amazing and has a fully dedicated fanbase that is willing to purchase more content for this game.

I mean look at this! All these petitions with thousands of signatures all for 1 character, and he isn’t the only one…this fanbase, no matter the odds, will always back this game, always support it…That says alot, So please start supporting this game, we really appreciate it and all the work that has gone into it.

I hope you take the time to listen, not just to hear all of the things fans ask for in this game, and Thank You for your time.

Sincerely, mtjjrstccw1

#ReleaseDart??? Erm if you do release a ‘Dart’ then you must also bring out a ‘Dart Board’ to then or it will be pointless just having Darts… er erm :D (nope i haven’t got a clue who ‘Dart’ is) :D Anyway enjoyed GoW:A story mode(apart from the impossible near the end of the game levels) :( + if SM are doing DLC for PSASBR then will we every see Crash Bandicoot in the game??? ;)

He is cooler than any of the other DLC characters. Sony Santa Monica should give the PS fans what they want.

Yeah, yeah. This is nice and all, but you know what I really wanna see?

……..Give up?

Well more of this nice stuff of course, because Ascensions multiplayer is pretty sweet so far. So the more I see, the sweeter it is. I myself haven’t been able to try it on my own account (playing it at friends house), but am looking forward to giving it a shot in my own home later this week.

Thank you all for giving us a sweet new game to play, and a multiplayer I can enjoy.

+ Freshh23 on July 5th, 2013 at 2:33 am said:

Forget this and support PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale!

PSASBR was just a sell out and slap to the face of everyone and everything. It’s suppose to be about celebrating PlayStation history, icons and classics but yet many classic and iconic PlayStation FIRST PARTY/SONY OWNED IPs aren’t in the game but non PS iconic/classic IPs are in the game before them like Bioshock, Dead Space, Fat Princess and more.


79

+ Freshh23 on July 5th, 2013 at 2:33 am said:

Yushido (I think that’s his name) said he would like to revisit the IP but with a different mechanic. Honestly, WHO CARES if it’s like Smash Bros in how you eliminate and the health bar. What matters is that it’s great, works and fun. If you can make it different and make it just as good or better then that’s even better, but if not, keep it the same. I have been waiting for a Smash Bros game since the first time I got a PlayStation with the PlayStation 2 and when they finally do it, they release this.

Sony just had to relaunch this game, add actual PlayStation icons and classics FOR FREE, improve certain things like main menu and what not, and release one or two great modes. Maybe make the single player free on Plus or do something with Plus and give it great ads and marketing. Smash Bros is one of Nintendo’s biggest IPs and so many, MANY consumers are saying they will buy a Wii U when Smash Bros comes out. Sony could have a huge IP on their hands here.

+ Freshh23 on July 5th, 2013 at 2:37 am said:

There is no excuse for not adding Sony owned IPs because Sony OWNS them.

Want to know some Sony owned IPs that are PlayStation classics or iconic that aren’t in this game? Sony knows this as well.

Jumping Flash
Legend of Dragoon
Legend of Legaia
Wild Arms
Arc the Lad
ICO & SOTC
Socom
Syphon Filter
Dark Cloud
Blasto
Cool Boarders
and more.

+ Freshh23 on July 5th, 2013 at 2:39 am said:

Third party?

Final Fantasy
Metal Gear Solid (Snake, duh!)
Devil May Cry (old Dante, duh!)
Crash Bandicoot
Spyro the Dragon
Tomb Raider
Oddworld
Gex
Battle Arena
GTA
and more

Fat Princess, Heavenly Sword, Zeus, Dead Space, Bioshock, Rising Raiden, new Dante, Gravity Rush before all the above IPs? GTFO!

I’m sick of hearing you guys pester him about Dart.

I like Dart a lot as well, but shut up already. This will only serve to make them less inclined to make him, because if they do it will make you all think you can get your way by acting like brats.

To Freshh23. The excuse is they don’t have to release a 1st party character if they don’t want, and 3rd party characters aren’t that easy to get if the people who own them say no.

So to all of you, drop it, or at least be polite and well mannered about it.
