God Of War’s Descent

WC: On Monday morning at noon, pacific time, IGN will be streaming footage of the multiplayer beta for God of War: Ascension. The next day it will be live for Playstation Plus members. I say this not only because I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the game, but also because this game’s very existence is confusing to me.

Sure I could simply list out the reasons why this game didn’t need to be made, but that would do a disservice to the conversation. Instead, I want to really examine what the point of this game is. (God of War: Ascension, PS3)

Okay in the wall of text you just wrote there you have said several things wrong but I will go on the two I think need to be said. First of all Kratos is a complex character with a complex life. no matter how much people try to boil down his actions to simply rage and hate there is more to him then that. So the constant claim that you don't need to go back is weak point at best.Because you see nothing but Kratos just being a jerk @$$ for no reason and people obviously never reading a Greek or Roman myth in their lives doesn't mean Kratos story is as vapid as you think it is. People play shooters whose main point is shoot aliens, beat aliens' or shoot bad guys kill bad guys and no one complains as much or tries to claim that they need to stop making them.

Second, I saw no one claiming or any evidence that the MP was the most important aspect of the game or any indication that the SP suffered because of it.That is the same stupid claim people made about Uncharted 2 and they were full of $hit.Why is it that people cry about people who don't usually jam MP into things or make bad SP and automatically accuse them of hard wiring MP in a game? Big companies force feed people SP that they obviously didn't even bother with and focus mainly on MP and people accept it with big smiles on their face. But the moment a once SP game even dwells in that direction people attack it mercilessly claiming the SP will be ruined even before they even play or see it or know the details.they automatically assume that they will look more towards MP then SP even people like Naughty Dog or Sony Santa Monica that aren't known for half @$$ing their games.
