God of War month is here and we are dying of anticipation for Kratos’ return to gaming in April. It has been over five years since we saw Kratos in his last adventure and eight years since we killed Zeus and avenged our family’s death. God of War 2018 represents a brand new direction for the series and we cannot wait to play it this month. If you are not a fan of Kratos then perhaps you are into Nintendo Labo. The upcoming DIY gaming kits are releasing in April and will see you create cool objects using your Nintendo Switch and Joy-Cons to extend the game past the usual on-screen experience.
