kratos, star of the hit ‘god of war’ series, has been a very busy man lately. generous lad that he is, he took some time recently to sit down with obnoxious gamer. he’s smart, funny and super successful. read on, as we shoot the shit about life and the upcoming ps3 game with the master of disaster himself: kratos.
[editor’s note: this is a transcript of an earlier live broadcast.]
obnoxiousgamer: first of all, thanks so much for doing this. our fans really appreciate what you do, and that you’re taking time out to chat with us. you’re awesome. fans, for those of you who don’t know, this man’s success came at great personal cost, and victory was worth everything. even his soul. kratos, what can you tell us about god of war 3?
kratos: my death is what began this journey.
obnoxiousgamer: no shit, eh! [laughs] well, we’re glad you came back from that. it must have been hard though, working through something so personal and then having to share it with others as a form of entertainment.
kratos: [grinning] by the gods, what have i become?
obnoxiousgamer: dude. you’re a legend. don’t worry about the opinions of others.
kratos: [nods head in agreement.] i have faithfully served the gods for ten years!
obnoxiousgamer: exactly. plus, that’s just one of your projects!
kratos: [nods head in agreement again.]
obnoxiousgamer: so having turned your experiences into a franchise, what message do you want to send everyone? what should they take from this?
kratos: do not meddle with things that you cannot predict the outcome.
obnoxiousgamer: [pause] i’ve interviewed many people, but that’s one of the most profound things i have ever heard.
kratos: i won’t take your riches.
obnoxiousgamer: ha! ha! see, folks, this is what i mean. what a very clever guy, using ‘riches’ as a substitute for ‘compliment’.
[obnoxiousgamer sips some water]
obnoxiousgamer: ok, all jokes and pleasantries aside, what can you tell us about your latest project, god of war 3?
kratos: no one should have to bear the burden of taking a life.
obnoxiousgamer: wow, so a lot of gore. interesting. well, well, that’s all the time we have for today, folks! from all of us here at obnoxious gamer, i can say we are all looking forward to it. [stands up and shakes kratos’ hand] sir, it has been an honour. i hope we’ve made you feel welcome here.
kratos: [big smile]: you succeeded.
obnoxiousgamer: awww. [turns to audience] look out for god of war 3, coming out march 16.
