A new God of War: Ascension developer diary has been released, discussing the mythological succubus Empusa. In Greek mythology, she was at one time a demigoddess and the daughter of Hecate, but in later writings she became a type of spectre-monster under the control of Hecate. Whatever her origins are in the game, though, she looks rather formidable and her physical attributes seem to defy gravity. Lucky her. Game’s out March 12 in NA, and from March 13 in Europe.

Sony has detailed the God of War: Ascension bundles to be made available in Europe a bit more, which means if you don’t want a white PS3 with a Gold Controller, you can get the console in black instead. White shows a lot of smudges, well, it does in my animal filled house. Anyway, it’s nice to have options, and you can also pick up the Gold DualShock Controller separately. All console bundles come with a 500GB system. Hit up the links for more information. Thanks, CyberMarco.
