God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Mode Announced and it Looks Amazing

by Baron W.April 30, 2012

While I’m sure some of us are quite tired of the angry Spartan Kratos by now. It seems Sony Santa Monica wants to give the fable warrior one last go round in God of War: Ascension. God of War: Ascension is a prequel to the trilogy that spanned across the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3, but unlike the previous games this one aims at doing something completely different. God of War: Ascension will be adding a multiplayer component, something that was rumored for God of War 3, but was never implemented.

God of War: Ascension Preview – Multiplayer

As you can see in the video the multiplayer component of the game looks relatively solid. You can also see that there has been a dramatic improvement in the games graphic fidelity since God of War 3. I’m quite surprised they managed to achieve something that looks so good on a multiplayer scale. Usually games that have a high poly/texture count take a hit in the multiplayer side of the game because of more objects being on the screen, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with God of War: Ascension. Admittedly I am a bit tired of playing as Kratos at this point, but even still I cannot wait to give this game a go.

    Pew pew!

    And who are the gods and goddesses of war?

  • Margery Degarmo

    George W. Bush, a gentleman of God, consulted a “higher father” (God).
    So provided that fact, why do people still criticize the war? God’s will is perfect.

    I just finished beating god of war 3 and I was surprised at the excellent graphics! So now does the god of war assortment pack (1 and 2) on ps3 with hd have as very good graphics or not even close?

  • Lola Lockwood

    I have stage 63 attack, 57 prayer, 77 magic, 82 ranging, 73 strength, 67 defence and 37 summoning.

    Good enough to survive a spherical or two? Or do i need to have to prepare some thing some more?

    Does it explain the ritualistic cannabalism of the Eucharist? By eating the flesh of the son of Jehovah, we gain the powers of the god of a rival tribe.

    With the dawn of the Age of Aquarius, should we turn away from the Canaanite war god, Yahweh? We have seen enough war, and there are signs that the Canaanite storm god Ba’al is becoming very restless. With the new age, we should turn our thoughts and prayers to Ba’al.

    I’m currently watching suzumiya haruhi no yuuutsu on animeseason, but the order that the episodes is going in is really confusing me now. What are the bracket numbers next to each episode? I just finished episode 2 (which was apparently episode one), I’m currently watching episode 3, but in brackets it says the number 7. What’s more is that I’ve now met characters that I’ve never seen before, and there has been a clear development in both characters, and story line (so I’m guessing that the number 7 means that the episode I’m currently watching is actually episode 7).

    How am I supposed to watch it? Am I supposed to follow the natural ascension of episodes, or do I follow the bracketed numbers?

    Someone explain this please, it would be really helpful. What’s really confusing is that in the episode preview, the voiceover states that the next episode is episode 7, so I’m guessing that is how it should be watched?

    What is the correct what to watch it, or what’s the way to watch it so that I can get the most out of the series?


    Oh and here’s the link

    Part A:
    From the Preview section of the text:
    1)a) An Astronomical Unit (AU) is the distance between what two objects? How many miles is it?
    b) Is a light year (LY) a period of time or a distance in space? List how many seconds, or miles (whichever is appropriate) one LY is.
    2) a) List the particles that make up an atom. b) Which particles are in the nucleus? c) Which have positive electric charge? d) Which have negative electric charge?
    From Chapter 1:
    3) a) List the approximate dates of the vernal and the autumnal equinox. What is an equinox? b) List the approximate dates of the winter and summer solstices. What is a solstice? c) What causes the seasons on Earth? d) During which season in the Northern Hemisphere is the Earth farthest from the Sun?
    Part B:
    1)A). Is the ecliptic path tilted relative to the celestial equator? (If yes, by how many degrees?) B) Which star moves the least in the Northern Hemisphere of the celestial sphere? Why? C). What is the celestial sphere? The celestial equator? The ecliptic?
    2)From Essay 1 of Ch. 2: a) Approximately where would you look for Mercury in the sky at about sunset? b) What is meant by “Morning Star”? c) What are right ascension and declination? d) What is the declination of Polaris?

    From Ch. 1: a) Does the moon tend to rise in the eastern or western part of the sky?
    3)b) How long, in days, does it take the Moon to go through one complete cycle of phases? c) How much later does the Moon rise each day, compared to the previous day?

    Part C:

    From Ch. 1:
    1)a) What is the phase of the Moon if moonset is around sunrise (6 AM)? b) around sunset? c) around midnight?

    2) During which lunar phase could a) a lunar eclipse occur? b) a solar eclipse occur? c) For which lunar phase would the relative position of the Sun-Earth-Moon system be S – E- M (i.e. the Earth is located in between the Sun and the Moon)? d) Which type of eclipse could occur for the positions of S-M-E?

    3) Suppose that the moon is full tonight, a) at about what time does it rise? b) at approximately what time would it rise tomorrow night? c) Approximately how many weeks would pass until the Third Quarter Moon? d) Why doesn’t a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse occur every month?

    Part D:
    From Ch. 2: 1) a) What is stellar parallax and how is it measured? b) When was stellar parallax first observed and why did it take so long to observe it? c) What is retrograde motion and why does it occur ?

Ptolemy.
    3) a) How did Ptolemy explain why retrograde motion occurs? b) How did Copernicus explain why retrograde motion occurs? c) Why did most ancient Greeks object to heliocentric models? (Hint: refer to stellar parallax in your answer).

    Part E:
    From Ch. 3: 1) a) State Newton’s Law of Gravity. B) Why does a book move towards the ground and not towards you if you drop it? c) Is mass the same as weight? Which depends on your location in the solar system?
    2) a) If the radius of the Earth were to triple while the mass remained the same, what would happen to your weight (i.e. what would happen to the force of gravity from the Earth that is acting on you) ? b) If you were to travel to the Moon, would your mass change? Would your weight change?
    3) a) If the mass of the Earth were halved, while the size stayed the same, what would happen to your weight on the Earth? b) If you weigh 100 lbs today, but tomorrow the mass of the Earth was halved while at the same time its radius was halved, what would your weight become, in pounds, tomorrow? Give the specific number of pounds of your new weight.

  • nothin_nyce1

  • Derek

    We are having a costume party. I want to dress as Kratos (new God of War character) and need some advise on what to use. The tattered loin cloth is easy enough and I will just use hand wraps for the undies, but what do I use for the ash covering on the body and the red body stripe?

    I’m playing the God of War Collection and I’m looking for the Muse Keys. I found them. Even got the trophy for it. But apparently the second didn’t save. Tells me I only have one. So I need to get back into The Challenge of Poseidon to get it and was wondering if its possible?
