>other one was Deimos
I'm almost thankful for it. Almost.
>BoO losing power
No. Just not handled like the super weapon it was.
>still possess Hades' soul
Unlikely. The release of energy should have taken everything he had where the attack by Fear Zeus might have missed a thing or two (blasting weapons, items and relics apart).
>just as ridiculous
Not nearly as shameful as how things went down for Loki. Thor had some pretty embarassing moments too. The resource would run dry rather quickly compared to Greek Myth.
You really should have noted just how the Pegasus was born. Amusing tale.
>implying Athena wasn't a full goddess
Inevitable for all mythologies used.
Who didn't exist.
Don't have to care about that now that I'm getting the Furies proper. I'll pretend it is just another OC.
I don't even care to see him. He was so spectacularly left-field, I would rather he remain as unimportant as he deserves to be. Hypnos would make more sense (if only marginally), but would still be a lame addition.
>Artemis and Apollo
All in good time.
Not much room for a chap like him in games like these.
That's more like it.
But the list goes on and on.

The pre-order bonus is the armor of Achilles, Odysseus, Orion and Perseus for MP, so I just thought it'd be nice if at least 1 or 2 of the characters would appear in SP, likely in some small way such as Jason and the Argonauts or Peirithous. I know Thera wasn't actually a titan, that was my point. Thera was a volcano though near Crete that could have played a similar role. It's been awhile since I looked up some of these myths, so my memory isn't so good on some of them. Such as Athena's mother (Metis, goddess of wisdom) and Pegasus' mother (Medusa). I agree that Norse mythology would run dry pretty quick so I'm not sure I'd base an entire game around just them but maybe a moderately-sized portion. It'd at least be better than going after Pandora's Box again.

>appear in SP
Possible. More so if they have us at Troy.
>was a volcano
And a Piraues Lion is just a statue.
Just as with the elements of Persian myth being worked in already. There is overlap between some of the regions regarding their recognized monsters, deities, etc.
>the box again
That was a terrible choice along with Pandora herself (as used as a fill-in for the daughter *read: moral pet*).

Yes, along with a collector's edition.
The pre-order bonus is called the Mythological Heroes Multiplayer Pack, which you can get from Amazon or GameStop (possibly other places but those are the only ones I've seen so far) includes the armor of Achilles, Odysseus, Orion and Perseus. Codes will be emailed with 2 business days after your order ships.
From what I could find on the Collector's Edition, it will cost $79.99 and includes an exclusive 8" Kratos statue, premium steelbook case, official game soundtrack (digital version), PS3 dynamic theme, PSN avatar pack, multiplayer double xp and a pass for all future DLC.
