God of War: Ascension
Yikes. God of War: Ascension was really bloody. It was Quentin-Tarantino-and-Eli-Roth’s love-child bloody. I really only saw about half an hour of gameplay and I saw more blood than in an episode of Game of Thrones. I have one vividly clear memory of this gore, and that was during the Trial of Archimedes level. Kratos slices the Medusa-lizard thingy right down the middle, and leaves her splayed on the ground like a partially juillenied cucumber.
A couple other things I remember about the game: the elephant man that Kratos fought? Was that the Hindi god Ganesh? Cuz I don’t remember any elephant men in Greek mythology. (Mainly because there aren’t any elephants in Greece.) And then there was that half spider/half human/half robot lady that did acrobats while fighting Kratos. Who was that? Lord Varys? (He’s the only Spider I can think of.)

To begin with, let me preface this by saying that I am a true die hard fan of First person shooters, or anything where i can take out my angst on 12 year-olds without a court appearance. I’ve been a fan of Mr. Drake since always and admire what Naughty Dog has brought to table as far as innovation and unprecedented gameplay.
That being said, my overall reaction to Uncharted free to play was excitement and anticipation, now the arena was to be flooded with new players and combined with an interactive gameplay style that is unmatched in the FPS world. Having spent a majority of my time with the COD series and more recently the BF series, I was hungry for something different, and Uncharted offered the competition and mash up style of COD but with the potential for depth that the BF series offered. I eagerly downloaded the free content and waited as the updates installed and the game began to load.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, a heart-warming tale of a young boy named Oliver who embarks on a journey into a parallel world in an attempt to bring his mother back from the dead. Along the way, Oliver makes new friends and adopts many of the wonderful creatures that inhabit the world, raising them to battle other creatures on his behalf as he takes on formidable enemies. Developed by LEVEL-5 alongside Studio Ghibli, the legendary animation studio, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch combines beautiful animated visuals, masterful storytelling and a sweeping score into an epic role-playing adventure like no other.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the latest Japanese-RPG from game developer LEVEL-5 (Dark Cloud, Dragon Quest VIII, Professor Layton) and an anime studio called Studio Ghibli. This game is an HD remake of Ni no Kuni, a Nintendo DS game that was exclusively released in Japan in 2010 .
I’ve played through Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch completely and my experience with this game is one that’ll remember for a long time! Almost everything is perfectly done and even if there are a few minor hiccups through the adventure, this game is definitively one of the top PS3 JRPGs!
