If you didn’t already know, God of War: Ascension was released today to some pretty rave reviews. Even our resident Gamer Next Door Pamela Horton is all riled up! “Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a profound interest in Greek mythology, so the God of War series has held a very special place in my heart since its release in March of 2005,”

“Kratos is the epitome of a devoted, sexy, ass-kicking warrior!” Between her long bouts of kicking ass, solving puzzles and ogling all of those sexy in-game women, we sent Pamela into the studio to tell us what exactly all the hype is about. “The first thing that captivates me is the absolutely stunning graphics and effects. Santa Monica Studio has GREATLY surpassed my expectations with the vast detail, lighting and animation. It’s obvious every aspect of this game has been given great consideration before being finalized. I was floored by God of War III, but this game is mind-blowing.”
