Insider Notes

Industry Changes
If you've wondered why we've changed the way we do things over the years, some of it might have to do with the way the game industry changes. Read what Justin Calvert has to say about working for GameSpot for 12 years now.

"It's the New Super Mario Bros Cereal, for Hardcore Gamers!, along with fruity fireball, star and koopa shell shaped marshmallows, you can now find tasty Kratos heads!"


Now I know when the weather outside is frightful, use the head of Kratos for a glove. At least one of your hands will be rather toasty.


I have the, no actually I have a mask and I look mean :P


Luigi - never a master of disguise - gets out some repressed sidekick-anger as a Luchadore in the latest Smash Brothers title, finishing Kratos with a decapitating Tommy Gun attack. Upon reflection, this makes no sense, but then neither does a flower allowing Mario to shoot fireballs or a Tanooki suit turning the player into a statue.

Not even Kratos can stop Jake. Who can? It's up to you in Jake's Revenge.


And now Kratos' true form becomes clear...


For Jake's Revenge - "Here's your Viscount!". I thought of that line from Dragon Age 2.:P


do you mean cap the image - like provide a caption? Mucha Lucha beheads Kratos in the next fatality for Mortal Kombat.
