Video Game Minisode – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Posted by NerdyShow on October 18, 2010

Ah, October… a time to celebrate the black and accursed void from whence all evil spews, a time for good Christian souls to masquerade in the skins of daemons, a time for game companies to cash in on anything “spooky” and try to get a few big sellers out before the holiday rush.  All cynicism aside, October can be a blast and we’d go straight to hell right now if we told you we weren’t crazy excited for the release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

But now that the game is out and we’ve sucked it dry of all it has to offer – how did it measure up?  Does this game that Metal Gear‘s Hideo Kojima consulted on live up to the Castlevania legacy, or is it just another forgettable reboot? Joining in on this discussion of the new game, as well as the ENTIRE Castlevania series is Chris Sims of Comics Alliance and War Rocket Ajax – a man who loves Castlevania so much he plays every game annually – dang!  This Minisode is far from Mini – it’s an hour long!  That’s ’cause we fat-packed it with TWO other game reviews: indie RPG sensation Breath of Death VII, the much-anticipated Sonic the Hedgehog 4, aaand we accidentally reviewed Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker. Hey, these things happen!

Your hosts for this Minisode are Cap and Triforce Mike, with video game hosts: Brandon and… Jonna? We’re happy to welcome Jonna to the team as our new video game co-host. She’s a gaming aficionado and long-time Sonic fan who hasn’t been truly satisfied since 1994 so this discussion could get.. interesting…
