The First 30 Minutes of ‘God Of War: Ascension’ is Beyond Epic!

God-of-war-Ascension-2At first I thought I was having a great day because of the new French Express mix, but then I watched the First 30 Minutes of God of War: Ascension, and now my day is a million times better!

GOW: Ascension is the forthcoming game in the God of War franchise, and it brings Kratos back in action with insane combos, incredibly (might I add disgusting) enemies, and all the ingredients of action, mythology, and advanced weaponry that make Kratos one of the best characters to ever hit PS3. 

In the new 30 minute gameplay, we get the chance to see the new title in action. The game starts off with this ugly chick with legs, one arm, and a minion of flies that can bring things to life. From the gist of the conversation, I’m assuming she might have dated Kratos or something, but he sure does plan on kicking her ass for what she puts him through.

Now of course, unless you want to be surprised when you first play the game, then I recommend you don’t watch this video (spoilers guaranteed.)But if you can’t wait and you’re curious what you will be getting your hands on, then grab some popcorn, push play, and enjoy Kratos kicking major ass! 

Gamer Zone | 6 Games I Must Play in 2013 [New DMC Cinematic Trailer Included!]

god-of-war-iii-background-52012 was a great gaming for gaming! So many great games came out and by far, the best game of them all (in my eyes) was Mass Effect 3. Hands down, ME3 was such an amazing conclusion to the Mass Effect trilogy, and Bioware has confirmed that they are working on another game in the franchise. Hopefully with the rumors of PS4 and a potential Xbox 720, we will experience more Mass Effect.

As the games of 2012 are still booming with replay value, 2013 is here and it signals the dawn of new games, perhaps next generation systems, and even more awesomeness for us gamers. And as usual, each year there are releases that fit everyone’s distinct gaming personality; nobody is left out in the world of gaming. So if God of War: Ascension or Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn’t your style, then there are so many great games coming out that will suit your gaming needs.

Personally, I’m excited about a lot of games coming out this year. I have to even buy an Xbox 360 again just to get my hands on Gears of War: Judgement, and that is alright with me. :)

God of War: Ascension (PS3)

But as far as PS3 only games go, I’m insanely anxious to play God of War: Ascension. Wow! Have you seen the trailer x gameplay demo? That game looks amazing and the combos are ridiculous!!! Kratos looks better and badder than ever, and the multiplayer function is a great new addition that might prove to be a lot of fun! Release Date: March 12, 2013

Gears of War: Judgement

The only reason I owned an Xbox 360 was for Gears of War. HALO was never my thing, but Gears of War wrapped me up and delivered hours upon hours of epic gaming. Oh man, and how awesome is it using a chainsaw on your gun to kill enemies? Mk 2 Lancer is one of the best weapons in gaming history! The new game in the franchise looks really good and it continues the trend of slicing and dicing up them grubs, while enjoying good old-fashioned teamwork. Release Date: March 19, 2013

Tomb Raider 

Perhaps it’s because I’m a woman and I admire strong feminine characters, but I have always been a huge fan of Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. I played almost all the games in the franchise and I’ve loved the complexity of puzzles and insane adventures. Before there was Nathan Drake, there was Lara Croft. And the new game in the franchise is a complete reboot that revisits the character with new design, new story line, and a new approach to how Lara Croft evolves into the iconic Tomb Raider. This game is a must-have for those who love the series and a good old-fashioned adventure. Release Date: March 5, 2013

The Last of Us (Ps3)

I remember first seeing the world premiere of The Last of Us on the 2011 VGAs and blogging about the illusiveness of it’s announcement. Of course, since then many details and footage of this game have been released and now I’m super stoked to get my hands on this. I’m a sucker for games that require survival skills, and The Last of Us is exactly the game I’ve been waiting for. Oh and it’s from Naughty Dog, the folks who bring us Uncharted. So yeah, you know it’s going to be good! Release Date: May 7, 2013

DmC: Devil May Cry

Now I’ll gladly admit I haven’t played much of the DmC franchise, but upon seeing the cinematic trailer for the fifth game in the franchise, I’m down to play. The game looks pretty good and I’ve enjoyed bits and pieces of previous DmC I have slightly played, so I’m adding this one to my list as well. Oh and the brand new cinematic trailer is amazing! Dante looks like he is ready to handle business! Release Date: January 15, 2013

Aliens: Colonial Marines

Seeing how it is that I’m such a big fan of the Alien franchise, there is no way I’m sleeping on this game! This game is the movie that should have been produced after Alien 3. So when you play this game and see the footage, you’ll see how it truly does appear like a true sequel to the film. Sounds pretty radical, and if you’re a true sci-fi/fantasy fan, then I think you’ll love what this game has to offer. Watch the footage and see for yourself how awesome this game might actually be. :) Release Date: February 26, 2013

That’s all for now! I will be posting more gaming news as usual, so stay tuned! Oh and if you’re wondering about GTA V, hell yeah I’m excited to play it! But there isn’t a release date yet :( Watch the trailers here: http://thinksoul25.com/2012/11/14/yeah-its-here-gta-v-trailer-2/

Feel free to chime in with comments on some of the games you hope to play in 2013. Got any favorites so far?


Feast Your Eyes Upon ‘Gears of War: Judgement’ [E3 Trailer]

Even though I just sold my Xbox 360 (it was just an old arcade version & I needed the extra cash,) I still plan on getting a newer 360, especially after hearing the news of Gears of War: Judgement coming out in 2013.

I can honestly say when it comes to video game franchises, I’m a huge fan of Gears of War and Call of Duty. Both of those franchises are my top favorites (well, can’t forget Mass Effect). Of course, Mass Effect came to an end with an awe-inspiring trilogy, but at least Gears of War and COD don’t show any sign of quitting anytime soon.

This years E3 Convention starts tomorrow and will last until June 7th. There are a lot of big name games anticipated by fans, designers, developers, and other game enthusiasts, but it seems that the Gears of War: Judgement trailer shows us a quite promising future for the franchise.

Of course, this is just a preliminary trailer being shown at E3, but it still does give us some details on what to expect. The main focus of the game…Baird. Okay, not just Baird, but his squad and their unruly actions. Should make for an interesting plot, and of course, I’m looking forward to slashing locusts with a Mk 2 Lancer Assault Rifle. Seriously, it looks so beautifully disgusting on my 48inch HDTV, guts going everywhere!
