God of War: Ascension, Power Stone, and paying allegiance to the gods

Joystiq- When asked about how he and the team at Sony Santa Monica are bringing multiplayer into the God of War series with God of War: Ascension, game director Todd Papy digs deep for inspiration. The single-player side of the game is obviously an influence, he says, as multiplayer side of the game attempts to enhance the always cinematic world of Kratos with a new character called the Avatar.

But then things get a little nuts. "You can look at Allegiance levels," says Papy, referring to the mode's customization choices defined by the four gods Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, and Ares, "and you can look at Diablo and Call of Duty and other games that have skill trees that you basically level up. (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

This is what PlayStation All Star Battle Royale should have been done. FULL 3-D
"And then you can look at Power Stone," says Papy, "as far as that old school melee feel to it."

This should silence the MP naysayers!
WTG Papy! You're my daddy. XD

Capcom just got owned!

I am calling it!

since Kratos has the ability to rearrange stuff.
Sony might surprise us with character, weapons and level customization!

Also throw in characters & weapons from other Sony games like what Uncharted 2 did ... then this game will be phenomenal.

never been this excited for a GOW game.
this might top GOW III in all levels.
