mangled myths


  • Elgyem - March 14, 2013 2:33 p.m.

    LOVE IT! As a mythology nerd myself it was great watching you tear GoW a new one in these entries. However, some of these are literally copy-pasted from a previous article. Still, great job.

    I added to those! And also reworked some of them. It wasn't a complete recycle job. Good eye, though.

    I sensed somethin fishy going on! I thought "there's no way Mikel didn't already do one of these." But it's always great to read your work.

    Wasn't the oracle of delphi typically a young girl? Meh either way God of War's story is busted in my eyes so I guess I shouldn't expect much.

    Actually, the Oracle of Delphi was not commonly young. It sometimes was a young woman, but not typically.

    The Oracle was originally a young girl, but after she was raped the council of Delphi decided to make the oracle an old, unattractive woman so that her purity would never again be violated.

    Hahaha, great article, Mikel. The history buff as always and a great writing wit.

    The final slide is awesome.

    Kratos didn't need Pandora to open the box in God of War III, he needed her to quell the flame of Olympus as only she could so that he could get to the box.
  • BladedFalcon - March 14, 2013 4:21 p.m.

    ...So in other words, he DID need Pandora to open the box :P (Because otherwise, he wouldn't be able to get to it, and thus, never be able to open it in the first place...)

    Zeus had me chuckling for quite some time.

    The wikiparaz strikes again with his awesome fact-chek articles! huzzah! :D

    Reparaxz, your facts of Justice strikes again! I cant stop looking at the pandora picture and not laugh at Kratos's expression XD and technically, Zeus IS indeed a dick

    To be fair to God of War's Hydra... Kratos didn't cut the heads off, he just stabbed wood poles through their skulls. So... yeah, apparently the Hydra is only able to recover from head chopping.

    Pantheon? I think you mean Parthenon.. Pantheon = Roman temple with the big dome Parthenon = Greek temple on Acropolis dedicated to Athena
  • fakirakos - March 15, 2013 3:29 a.m.

    1. From Greek; pan = all, and theon = gods. Literally, all the gods.. not the building....and even parthenon would make no sense in that article...
  • BrunstigElg - March 15, 2013 3:44 a.m.

    I know Parthenon didn´t make sense :P but it would make more sense than Pantheon; didn´t know that it meant all the gods.. But that makes sense when Pantheon was a temple for all gods :D

    Hate to be that guy, but Hercules is actually a Roman Demi god, Heracles is the Greek counterpart, even though they call him Hercules in the game, whats up with that?
  • kyle94 - March 15, 2013 11:03 a.m.

    I would blame Disney (given that they used the Roman spelling "Hercules" in the movie "Hercules" yet used the Greek Hades, Zeus, etc.) but I think it dates back to further than that. For whatever reason, people really like referring to the Greek Heracles by the Roman spelling.
