Cool Videos: God of War: Ascension teaser trailer

I may be a bit biased in my love for this, because I am a devout Playstation 3 fanboy.  Sure, I've had plenty of fun with each and every system since the Sega Genesis, but my heart has always truly lain with Sony's Playstation brand. 

And one of the very best franchises to make the Playstation its home is undoubtably that of GOD OF WAR.  The games have uniformly been spectactular, full of mythological creatures and terrible traps and bloody deaths and heart-stopping set pieces and inventive action sequences all bound up in a series of heartbreaking trials and tribulations that are very human at their core.

Because for all his slaying of gods, monsters and Titans, anti-hero Kratos is fundamentally a man full of such depth of sorrow that he knows no way to deal with it but to explode with fury.  And by "explode with fury" I of course mean "rip everyone the f*** up."  Which leads me to today's teaser trailer for a new PS3 entry in the series entitled GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION.

Now this is how to wake up in the morning:

Oh, and Todd Papy (game director on GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION) says to check out the Playstation Blog and GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION on Facebook this Monday the 30th at 8am Pacific Time for a live-stream event.  They'll be answering tweeted questions and everything - you can check out all the details here.

Extra Tidbit: Favorite GOD OF WAR game? I have to go with GOD OF WAR II. The same thing with the Uncharted series as with GOW - they tried to go even bigger, and in the process compromised some of the adventure and wonder of it all. Still great games, of course.

So much potential for a great movie

Will this ever come to the big screen? With a good script and a devoted director it might happen. Fingers crossed.

Honestly, I think Zack Snyder would be perfect for this. And Djimon Hounsou as Kratos. Do it!

God of War III. The Kronos fight made the game for me. GOW II is a close 2nd though.

is my favourite, easy!

this new game is supposed to be the 'most ambitious GoW game ever' out of all 5 of them already out... seeing as it's a PREQUEL I don't see how that can be possible... the only thing I can make out of that is that they're gonna make it an open world game or something...

Yeah, I'm wondering how they're going to accomplish that myself...

I Thought the prequel was already on the PSP, correct if I'm mistaken.

@Cezar - yeah, Ghost of Sparta for PSP (now on PSN to play on PS3 too I think) is a prequel but not as much of a prequel as this is planning to be. In that game it told the story of his brother and showed a little more of his past, but we still first meet Kratos when he's already the Ghost of Sparta, and just learn a little about the past in flashbacks and such... this new one looks like it's going all the way back, letting you play through everything pre-Kratos being the Ghost of Sparta
