These God of War: Ascension Single And Multiplayer Trailers Are Kind Of Violent.

Not that violence is anything new to the God of War series. They should just retitle the games Fuck Shit Up In Greece.

The single player trailer up top seems like typical God of War shtick: slicing, dicing, hurdling through the air toward giant monsters, etc. The multiplayer below has all that same stuff, but you’re cutting up dudes online and exposing their intestine pieces. Gross, but awesome.

It’s sad, but I can remember a time when these trailers probably would have blown my mind. At this point, they just seem kind of lifeless and formulaic. I’m hoping it’s one of those “it’s more fun to play than to watch” sort sort of scenarios.

Oh, God! Am I finally becoming the jaded video game blogger that I always dreaded I would?
