God of War Ragnarök - With Caleb Van Nice, Jay Davis, and MrEricAlmighty

Andrew rounds up a fantastic group of guests to talk about one of the biggest games of 2022, God of War Ragnarök. Timestamps below if you want to skip the spoiler section of the conversation.

God of War Ragnarök is an action-adventure game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was released worldwide on November 9, 2022, for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, marking the first cross-gen release in the God of War series. It is the ninth installment in the series, and the sequel to 2018's God of War.
Loosely based on Norse mythology, the game is set in ancient Scandinavia and features series protagonist Kratos and his teenage son Atreus. Concluding the Norse era of the series, the game covers Ragnarök, the eschatological event which is central to Norse mythology and was foretold to happen in the previous game.
The gameplay is similar to the previous 2018 installment. It features combo-based combat, as well as puzzle and role-playing elements.
Ragnarök garnered universal acclaim from critics and was praised for its storytelling, characters, visuals, level design, and overall improvements to the gameplay over its predecessor. It won Game of the Year at the Titanium Awards and was a nominee for the same award at The Game Awards 2022, where it won Best Narrative, Best Action/Adventure, and Innovation in Accessibility, among other awards and nominations.
The game was a commercial success, selling 5.1 million units in its first week, becoming the fastest-selling first-party game in PlayStation history.
