Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Thrill as Patrick Stewart stalks a giant man.

Watch Video

I find Gabriel's accent very...captivating for some reason. I like him more than Patrick Stewart as I play the game. Robert Carlyle did a FANTASTIC job.

Oh, and THAT'S NO GOOD!

Mr Graham, Mr Paul: ENGAGE
Wait, Capt Piccard is watching ME? Oh dear, so much pressure. O~O

Gabriel is so serious you could tell him that his entire family had been devoured by wolves and the wolves are on the other end of the earth and he would just stare at you for a second before turning around and walking into the woods to find the wolves.

Haha, awesome.

Loved grahams scottish accent.

Not gonna lie, that day really would just SUCK.

Was actually playing the demo yesterday thinking if unskippable were going to make fun of it xD

They did and it was glorius.

Am I the only one that finds this cutscene fine?

Seriously, I'd consider buying it, if I had money to spare.

I'd have to see some actual game play before I made my decision, but no, you are not.

Of course, cutscenes prove nothing, but this one has something.

What's the point of having a gate if the enemy can just climb over it?

It seems they didn't think it through.

True

Wouldn't YOU want to put as much as possible between yourself and a pack of werewolves?
Edit: Oh Who am I kidding? You'd probably be leading the blasted things!

I had a dream about Patrick Stewart. I wont go into detail because it was really sick.

maybe he's just in the land of the munchkins.

Blast! You know my secret!

When I lead the uprising of the wolf, YOU will be the first to fall!!!

I thought Robert Caryle was trapped on a ship with that guy from Ugly Betty and the chick from ER?

good game and its interesting to hear the the voice of the person who plays rush on sgu as Gabriel

The opening cutscene isn't THAT bad.

Also, LoS combat feels a lot less like GoW than it looks (and nothing like the clunky mess that was DI). There's definitely a similarity, but as you get past the prologue it becomes a much more distinct game. It also does giant bosses a lot better than GoW, where you really just had a fight with a tiny piece of a big thing. LoS is more like Shadow of the Colossus, where you have to climb up bosses and interact with the whole thing.

Did I see Russell hanging out on that tree?

Poor Gabriel. Rain... werewolf blood... dead horse... what next!?
I guess we no longer have the right to complain about OUR day sucking, huh?

So you can't talk over Patrick Stewart...
But if he narrates the whole game, you'd have an empty Unskippable...
Great. Unskippable just got hit with a paradox. Damn you, C:LOS!

And the ending message says this game is not a God of War ripoff, but a ripoff of a God of War ripoff...
Does this mean if (or when) Zero Punctuation reviews it, we'll see the LIKE GOD OF WAR BUT stamp again?

I admit, I am the last of the species of Loser Squirrels. Don't hurt me!

I would have posted this on FML, but I got crushed under the horse with his iPhone. Wait, I'm still alive! I'm still ali...Urk...

Actually if you think about it God of War sort of ripped-off the original Castlevania. Chain weapons, hydras, shirtless Medusas, all things from previous Castlevania games. Ok I'll give you the quick-time events, grab attack, and combo purchasing.

Also is anyone else glad that Castlevania is using the barbarian hero again rather than the pretty boys they've been using since SotN?

Your petty wolves are no match for...

The Giant Eagles!

Having played it, I can assure you.. it is basically GoW gameplay with slightly better graphics, but annoying-to-navigate maps.

"You can't talk over PATRICK STEWART!"

loved the FML quip.

Why do references to a silly Fallout meme have me busting out laughing any and every time they are made? I don't understand. It's like illusory cake, I just can't get enough of it, I guess!

The epilogue of this game blew my freaking mind 3 times. Also Hideo put A LOT of references to other games he likes into this, including Portal, Shadow of the Colossus, Zelda, and of course Metal Gear Solid.

You damn ninja!

Wait, I actually said that Patrick Stewart can watch me anywhere, anytime...

Uhmmm...

Poor horsey :( !!! Why do the hero's beloved pets always have to die!?

And that last line was truly the best. Gabriel should have posted FML on Twitter via his iPhone, he would get so many views.

You talked of Patrick?!

Blasphemy! We must clense these hea...

OT: Very funny. Cant wait to your next episode.
