Review: God of War (PS4)

We don't usually publish reviews on brand-new games, but I couldn't help myself here. God of War was released just last Saturday and unusually for me I picked it up straight away.

At parties kids often ask me, 'are you a gamer'? Despite some problems with the label, I usually reply yes since gaming forms an important part of my identity. They usually follow up with 'what are you playing now?', so I thought I'd start a blog series updating telling about my current choice of games. I am usually monogamous with games but the end of 2015 ...
