God of War III Reveals Kratos For What He Is

Midway through God of War III, the buff and surly protagonist Kratos is scaling along the outside face of a building when he happens upon a man.

Behind The Scenes Of One Of The PS4's Biggest Games

When Brad Meyer wants to create fire, he doesn't just light a match. He rubs two pieces of charcoal together, then burns some charcoal, then pours water on burning charcoal, then rubs more charcoal together, then drops charcoal on a steel chimney, then crushes up charcoal with a mortar and pestle, and then, just for… » 9/06/13 2:45pm 9/06/13 2:45pm
