God Of War Cake Contains Sugar, Flour, And Unyielding Rage

I think everyone can agree that cake is good (even if it's not good for you). Not everyone agrees Kratos is a good guy, but I think most can agree he's had a rough lot in life. Now these two things are one thing, and I think everyone can agree a Cake-tos is a good thing.

Created by Ade Cal of Delicut Cakes in Cantabria, Spain, this enormous cakes has the God of War standing over the ruins of a statue of Zeus. The cake is incredibly well-sculpted and detailed, down to the Blades of Chaos Kratos wields.

As to why she chose Kratos as a subject for her cake sculpture, Cal states: "Greek mythology has always fascinated me especially the conflicts and wars waged by the Titans and the Gods."

Federal Court Case Questions Dota's Real Ownership

Federal Court Case Questions Dota's Real Ownership

Dota began life as Defense of the Ancients, a mod for WarCraft III that became as popular as the game that hosted it (arguably moreso). As a mod, its history of creation is somewhat muddy, as it was cultivated by multiple people over the years, included community feedback, and was eventually the center of a court case between Valve (which bought the rights to the mod from then-caretaker Abdul "IceFrog" Ismail) and Blizzard (the company who owned the game Dota was created within), eventually settled out of court. At that point, it seemed clear the game belonged to Valve (with a little wiggle room for Blizzard to associate the name with its games). Now, a federal court case once again asks: Who owns Dota?

Latest Boss Keys Videos Revisits The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword's Cohesive Dungeons

Latest Boss Keys Videos Revisits The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword's Cohesive Dungeons

Although we loved The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword back in the day, it hasn't aged well in the eyes of fans. The between-dungeon segments were monotonous, the story, while interesting, was plodding and often slowed down your progress, and it the gear system it used was more work than fun.

However, Mark Brown highlights the game's best feature, its dungeons, in his latest Boss Keys video. According to Brown, what makes Skyward Sword's dungeon's great is the way they often make you consider the dungeon as a whole rather than a series of rooms with separate puzzles to solve in each one. Of particular note are the dungeons where you can shift between one of the two states for the entire dungeon, and the one in which you can change the room layout at will.

Reader Discussion – What Game Would You Like To See Come To PC?

Reader Discussion – What Game Would You Like To See Come To PC?

It's not recent news, but Destiny marks the first time the series comes to PC, complete with Blizzard online integration. Destiny has long been a game many have wanted to have playable on their PC, especially considering how Bungie nails the visual design of the thing and how that could greatly benefit from the beauty of 60 frames per second. But there are still quite a few other titles that need to be on the system.

So what games would like to see come to PC? I'll go with the obvious pick and go with Red Dead Redemption. I would absolutely love to see the game running on cutting-edge computer, and the modding community would undoubtedly get up to all kinds of untoward business in it. I'm hoping it happens soon so I can revisit it, especially as the sequel draws near.

So what game would like to see come to a computer near you? Hoping Sony signs a deal with someone to bring Bloodborne over? Holding out for a PC version of Bayonetta 2? Let us know in the comments.

This $800 Bloodborne Statue Will Let You Relive A Pleasant Nightmare

This $800 Bloodborne Statue Will Let You Relive A Pleasant Nightmare

Prime 1 has a pretty good track record of making incredibly detailed, expensive figures from popular franchises and other sources, such as the $2,000 Ludens statue. If you've marveled at the studio's work before but thought "Gosh, none of these are Bloodborne-related!" You're in luck.

Prime 1 and Sideshow Collectibles have partnered up to release a 32-inch statue The Hunter, Bloodborne's main character. The figure comes with interchangeable  hands that can hold the game's three starting weapons: The Hunter Axe, Saw Cleaver, and Threaded Cane. The statue stands atop the corpose of a foe in a nondescript area of the game's Victorian-esque Yharnam location. You can check out a few more shots of the figure below, as well as on the figure's store page.

Platinum Games Teases New Franchise

Platinum Games Teases New Franchise

Platinum Games has been doing well in the last few months. Nier: Automata's sales have surpassed one million, and the developer seems confident enough about its older titles to release both Bayonetta and Vanquish on PC. And at this year's BitSummit gaming event, Platinum producer Atushi Inaba teased the existence of a new franchise from the developer.

According to DualShockers, Inaba said the franchise  was "formless, shapeless," revealing little about what the new series would entail. He did, however, mention the IP would be helmed by a new director.

This new franchise would be the first for the studio since 2013's The Wonderful 101. Since then, the studio has worked only on sequels or with other company's series, such as Metal Gear, Transformers, The Legend or Korra, and most recently, Nier.

Grasshopper Working On The Silver Case: 25th Ward Remaster

At this year's BitSummit gaming event in Japan, Grasshopper's Goichi Suda announced he'll continue to work on projects related to The Silver Case, the remaster of the development studio's first project. The first is the even more obscure sequel to the Silver Case, The 25th Ward, which is comprised of chapters following characters from the first game. Originally only released on Japanese cell phones, the game is one of Grasshopper's hardest-to-play titles, making this remaster welcome news. You can watch the stylish trailer for the game below.

Though no concrete word on whether the remaster was heading West was given, considering the official English Grasshopper account posted the news as well, our guess is it will come stateside as well.

Injustice 2's Super Moves Contain A Hidden Minigame

Injustice 2's Super Moves Contain A Hidden Minigame

Injustice 2's super moves are flashy, high-octane abilities that can turn the tide of battle. But supers in most fighting games are also cutscenes, which can slow down the pace of a match as one player watches their opponent beat up on them. Not in Injustice 2.

Players have discovered that if, as the attacker, you press the heavy attack button in time with the hits of the super, you can slightly increase the damage of each hit. The defender can do the same to decrease the damage. Here's a video showing off the attack damage bonus (though lopsided, since it's a level 20 Aquaman hitting a level 1 Superman) from user Enkindu (via Shoryuken):

Weekend Warrior – Our Weekend Is A Battleground

Weekend Warrior – Our Weekend Is A Battleground

The weather is beautiful, which means we might as well stay inside and play more games. This weekend, we'll be tackling PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Thumper, Prey, and whatever else our hearts desire. What about you? Leave your plans for the weekend in the comments below.

Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – This weekend I should really play more Nier: Automata but I just can’t stop playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. That game is just a ridiculous blast to play with friends. If you enjoy tension and laughter, then dive on in and try and survive on the ol’ island. Have a good weekend!

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – When I was reviewing the PlayStation VR, I played a fair bit of Thumper and really enjoyed it, which is why I am excited to play it on Switch. It’s easier for me, in general, to find time to play handheld games rather than console games. I will also be seeing some live Zelda music and watching Lego Batman. It’s going to be a very, very busy weekend.
