How To Fight Like A God And Destroy All Of Your Enemies

God Of War III – The Not So Remastered Version

I don’t know what it is about the God of War series, but I absolutely love these games. It’s way too much fun playing as a powerful demigod with a huge chip on his shoulder. I get to take all of my…I mean…his…frustrations out on all of the demons and hell beasts that come in my direction. Kratos is a world wind of destruction and I enjoy every minute of it. I’m just sorry that it took me this long to get to this point. When I tell you about all of the events that had to take place for me to finally play this game you’ll be flabbergasted. I honestly think that’s the first time I’ve ever used that word in a sentence. Seriously though. I literally just tore off the cellophane from this game one week ago and put the disc into my PS3. I’ve had this game for so long and I’m only playing it now. I can’t even pinpoint when I actually got this game. I remember that my brother-in-law Brandon bought it for me for Christmas. I just can’t seem to remember which year exactly. Now I know I got my PS3 in December 2009. It was my Christmas present to myself. So I would have received it either the following year in 2010 or 2011. It was most likely 2010. Brandon, being the good brother-in-law that he is, would have come up with the idea to add to my slowly growing gaming collection. So I got God of War III just over five years ago. Now let’s put this into perspective. These are all of the pivotal and subsequent events that had to transpire in order for me to finally play this game. Are you ready? Then let’s continue.

Fortitude Of A Demigod

By now I hope that you are shaking your disapproving head at me because what I just shared with you is ridiculous, isn’t it? #ICYMI (Hashtag, In Case You Missed It) please allow me to reiterate. Within the last five years of me owning, and not playing this PS3 game, a newer version of the PlayStation launched followed by a remastered version of the very same game that we are talking about. Crazy huh? Time flies when you’re a gaming procrastinator like I am. But that is all in the past. My goal is to still get through my infinite playlist. No game backlog is too daunting. Not for this Gaming Worker. So I’m off to a terrible start. Ghost of Sparta is still the only video game that I’ve completed this year, but I’m not going to give up. Damn the challenges. Just like Kratos I will fight like a god, destroy all of my enemies and come out victorious. Even if my thumb and fingers bleed from all of the button mashing that comes with entertaining a game like this, I will prevail. Spoken like a true god, wouldn’t you say? 😡

Editor’s Note

According to my official Twitter account I have released what seems to be a teaser of a follow up post to my How To Fight Like A God And Destroy All Of Your Enemies Let’s Play series. This slowly, but surely comes as exciting news to you as you have been eagerly waiting to hear about a possible sequel to my aforementioned blog post. At this time no official release date has been confirmed. Stay tuned 😉
