  1. Good Blood

    Good BloodPred 4 meseci

    A beautiful acknowledgment from Mr. Barlog: bit.ly/38Q5KGP Three quick amendments: 1. While indeed Snorri spent time as a leader in Norway, he was Icelandic by birth. 2. The longer the stories were being told throughout the generations, the 2 fertility gods, Frigg and Freya, began to bleed into the one goddess. In the Edda's, Baldur's mother is Frigg, but I've purposefully kept it as Freya in this video for ease of understanding. 3. I've made a typing error and wrote Alistair Sung as Alistair 'Yung' in the credits. Getting someone's name wrong is for me, the greatest crime so I am so sorry for this.

    As its a trilogy, Im thinking Loki will be the main antagonist in the third game, and will have constructed the entire events.

    "The lie that Kratos believes is that controlling the truth is the strength" This is heavy, truth is like a volcano. But again Kratos Learned and continues to learn. He becomes the moral guide to Atreus. Through his past experience, he understands and becomes the father that Atreus needs. This story will be view as to how important parental guidance is. Never played this game, but this game thought me how to be a good father in some aspects. Being patience with my daughter, we need to be harsh but in control. For they will learn that every action they made will create a consequence. And that's why I grow my beard and change my ways!

    I think in future the twist will be that Atreus is not really Kratos' son and Kratos will have to make a tough decision in order to save his son from himself.
