No good ever came from second-guessing the client

“How about eating still warm intestines uncoiled from the carcass of a freshly slaughtered goat? At the party to celebrate God Of War II’s European release, members of the Press were invited to do just that."      -from the article "Sony's Greek Orgy", Playstation Magazine

Here's a fun bit of etymology: "tragedy" comes from the Greek word tragoidia, meaning "goat-song". One theory holds that it's a reference to the sound a goat makes when sacrificed on festival days.

God of War

To be fair, a mutilated goat is very much in keeping with the game's theme (check out the 1:43 mark of this gameplay trailer).

Still, who'd have thought Sony could be so insensitive?

Oh... right.
