1) God of War: Ascension
For today only, God of War: Ascension, the newest adventure in the epic franchise, is selling for 33% off, meaning that the game can be yours for only $39.99. Serving as a prequel to the popular Hack N’ Slash action series, the game explores the details of Kratos’ initial betrayal by Ares while he was still human. Aside from the usual single player campaign, which includes new combat and puzzle mechanics, this time around there’s also an eight player online multiplayer mode.
Reviews on the game have been excellent so far, with our very own Paul McNamee offering the following verdict:
With this year’s release of the PS3’s successor, anticipation is sure to build for the inevitable fourth officially-numbered entry in what ought to be its flagship franchise, but God Of War: Ascension is of a sturdy enough build to make sure you’ll not think about that for a long, long time. An essential purchase for the experienced and the doe-eyed alike.
Simply put, this is one of the PS3’s must have titles and if you haven’t checked it out yet, today is the perfect time to hop in.
