The Total Recall remake sucked. I saw it. (I was forced, actually.) It took away two hours that I could have spent doing something meaningful, like learning how to play Dragon Force on my Saturn or organizing VHS tapes. Based on reviews and internet buzz, I wasn’t the only one let down, so I guess Sony Pictures is resorting to desperate measures to try and sell it. Hey, look! Here’s one now! If you spend $40.99 on the Total Recall Director’s Cut Blu-ray on December 18, 2012, you’ll also get immediate access to the E3 2012 God of War: Ascension demo.
While I have to admit the God of War: Ascension demo was pretty awesome when I went hands-on with it at Sony’s booth, I don’t think it’s worth this kind of pain. I mean, do you really want to spend $40.99 (actually, probably closer to $43 after taxes) on that much Total Recall? You get the demo, the movie on Blu-ray with 20 minutes of extra footage, DVD and digital copies of the movie, an extra ending and one and a half hours of behind the scenes footage. As someone who saw the movie, the 15-ish minute God of War demo is honestly the most fufilling part of this package.
If you choose to opt out of this tease, then you probably won’t have to wait too much longer for a God of War: Ascension demo to appear on the PlayStation Store. The game comes out on March 12, 2013 and video game companies usually like to have a demo up at least a month ahead of time when it comes to a major release.
