It’s been awhile since I had some time off. I took an extra day (May 21st) so I could just do nothing.
I wish I had a weekend project to work on but the one thing I want to work on (new home server) isn’t possible at the moment. So what will I do? I already spent a day at a wedding and I suspect one of these days will be spent charring meats.
The game(s) of the weekend will probably be God of War: Ascension and Mechwarrior: Online sprinkled with some Luigi’s Mansion 2.
I guess I’ll continue working on my Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review and perhaps that Unreal Engine 3 feature.
You know what? It may also just be filled with Star Trek: TNG episodes. The important thing is I’m earning money and not working.
The next brand new title on its way to me is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon courtesy of AMD’s Never Settle Reloaded program. It will be the third and final freebie title that accompanied my Radeon HD 7850 1GB.
Now that I wrapped up BioShock: Infinite to much satisfaction, it’s time to check the backlog. I revisited Rayman: Origins again in order to wrap up some missing trophies but I want to play something new as well. I’m juggling Super Mario 3D Land and MechWarrior: Online as well but what’s the next big game?
God of War: Ascension? Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance? Those are still considered “new releases” right? I also have Persona 4: Arena and Golden sitting on my shelf, not to mention Luigi’s Mansion hiding somewhere around here as well.
It started with an unintentional leak by Amazon.com who prematurely put up the God of War: Ascension product page along with the teaser (below) and “unofficial” box art. I guess you can’t expect online retailers to honor product announcements.
With the cat out of the bag, Sony had no choice but to come out and show the goods themselves.
It’s a teaser alright.
It will be a prequel of some kind. I have no idea where it fits but I do know we have just as many prequels as main line games at this point. Do we even consider it a main line game or relegate it to the same company as God of War: Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta?
I enjoyed God of War III very much and I’m convinced Sony Santa Monica will be able to conjure up something special now that they’ve completed the technological heavy lifting with their first title on the PlayStation 3 — now they can focus on the gameplay.
1UP.com’s latest feature “Alternate History” delves into “cut features, canceled games, ideas that stopped short”. There were a couple of articles about EA’s canceled project LMNO and a mature rated Wii game called “Son of the Dragon“.
Today’s feature was about God of War III’s deleted scenes. Pretty interesting stuff; especially if you finished the game.
