Buy Total Recall Blu-Ray, Get GoW: Ascension Demo
It looks like the makers of Total Recall (the remake) are convinced that the fact people didn’t like the film in theaters might affect Blu-Ray sales, so they’re tacking something to it that they hope will overcome that little hurdle. Unfortunately, they kind of picked the wrong thing to tack on.
The official Playstation Blog has announced that the Total Recall Blu-Ray will give purchasers access to the God of War: Ascension demo. So just to be clear, buy an unnecessary remake of a classic film, get access to the demo of an unnecessary prequel to a classic game series. It’s just like a win win, except without the win part.
I kid, I kid. Kind of. I honestly don’t see the point of a prequel, since everything we need to know about Kratos’ past is revealed in playable flashbacks from the original trilogy. The backstory is always the least interesting part of these things anyway, we we all learned painfully with Star Wars. But maybe you like the idea? Then pick up Total Recall.
