I’ve been on the fence about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. On one hand, I love Super Smash Bros., but on the other hand I’m a big fan of actual innovation as well, and it seemed like this game was more copying the first and ignoring the second.

I think Kratos is plenty brutal for the series, and it seems like he’ll come packed away with his own set of moves and Fatalities.

To nobody’s surprise, God of War III has a sex mini-game… And it’s tantalizingly described on the ESRB website! Here’s the blurb: Players will encounter a goddess and her two hand maidens, all topless, all holding and caressing each other.
