Thank you for the reply & info. I've not realy played the PSP versions but I was sure there was a spear/sheild combo in the console version of the games. Am I wrong on this?
I believe there was a part in GoW2 during one of the flashbacks but that could be wrong. There is a spear and shield combo in the new Ascension however so if you can't find the old one at least you can look forward to the new one.
