The lights are on
MercurySteam didn't just create the first worthwhile 3D Castlevania game with 2010's Lords of Shadow, they started a whole trilogy. With the 3DS's Mirror of Fate and Lords of Shadow 2 on the spooky, moonlit horizon, Matt Miller and I discuss the trilogy and the future of the franchise.
In the video below, I take advantage of the fact that Miller just recently finished Lords of Shadow, pulling him into a conversation about the series' future, what it might be like to play as Dracula, and more.

The CG trailer for LoS 2 was incredible!
LoS is one of my favorite games of this generation. Good conversation, and nice to glimpse Ben "working" in the background.
I had a lot of issues with Lords of Shadow but one thing was amazing, the soundtrack, I loved it!
Very interesting thoughts.
lords of shadow was awesome i can't wait for mirror of fate and lords of shadow 2
I really liked Lords of Shadow and by the end was dying for more but I'll admit, it was a hard game to really get into at first. The first level and boss fight were fun but the levels after that started to really slow down. They looked great, but gameplay-wise I was forcing myself to continue. Having beaten it though, I'm eager as hell for Lords of Shadow 2.
Just finished and loved the first one, despite the slow start. cant wait for either of these followups.
More " Discussion " videos, por favor.
I'd just like to point out how giddy I was to hear "Wood Carving Partitia", the theme to the Long Library from SotN, being played for this discussion. Symphony of the Night is my favorite game. Bravo, gentlemen.
LOS is a slow burn but by the 15th hour or so you can't believe how good it is.
I love the Castlevania games with a passion. Lords of Shadow was amazing, so sign me up for the sequel. I'm game.
