    (Attn: Major Spoiler alert at end of review) Wow, what a great game. Full disclosure, this is basically the first Castlevania game I've ever played. I'd messed around very briefly with one or two a LONG time ago as a young kid, but this is the first one I've actually gotten into. So take... More

  • Blog Post: Excellent Reboot of a Veteran Franchise

    Castlevania: a franchise I've known about since my earliest days of gaming. Though I've had my eye on a few of the titles over the years, I never got around to playing any of them. Like most veteran game series with several entries spread out over multiple consoles, I didn't know where to... More
  • Blog Post: Breathing New Life Into A Classic

    I've been a fan of Castlevania ever since I first played it for the N64 back in the day. From there on, I dabbled in the occasional vampire-slaying adventure on other platforms as the years went by but none of the titles I played could really grab me like the N64 original and its sequel could. Then... More
  • Blog Post: A Fresh Take on an Old Series

    I finally finished Castlevania: Lords of Shadow right before Christmas. I started it when it came out, but too many other cool games came out that distracted me away from Castlevania. I really enjoyed Castlevania. It did a smart thing by de-tangling itself from all the other Castlevania games. This worked... More

  • Blog Post: Castlevania?

    Alright so I'm going to throw out that I've been a Castlevania fan since I was a kid. I was kind of excited to hear about Lords of Shadow as it was a newer approach to the classic Castlevania. I am not going to lie though, I hated this game when I first started playing. I didn't like anything... More
  • Blog Post: New Castlevania Surprises All

    I must say that I was quite surprised when I really got into the new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I had my doubts going into it (I’m sure everyone else did too), what with the lack of good 3-D Castlevania games on the market and the not so compelling story Castlevania has a knack for repeating...

  • Blog Post: I still can't decide whether i hate or love this game

    First, I would like to start off by saying that I am a huge fan of the Castlevania games, and i was holding my breath when i saw the trailers for this game. I have fun playing it, but it has some flaws such as the camera and even though it encourages exploring, it has been very linear to me. The graphics... More
  • Blog Post: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow quick review

    Anyone that is a Castlevania fan or just played SoTN might have thought this was a must have. I thought the same thing until I played it and it felt like a God of War spin off. Sure, I think the God of War series is nice but, Castlevania is pretty classic. With the story normally being same everytime... More
  • Blog Post: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    This is an amusing game. Let me be up front in saying that I have never played another Castlevania game. I am aware of what it is, and it's popularity in the 2D style. I've been around it since I've been playing videogames, but have never played an installment. I picked up this game, and... More
