This weekend I was at PAX East and had been busy shooting some videos with our lovely bearded editor-in-chief when this was uploaded, so in case you missed it, check out the latest Beard View in which I show off one of my fa...

When I see the faux suffix "vania" at the end of a word, I have a Pavlovian reaction. Visions of whipping flying decapitated Medusa heads in mid-air, exploring a Victorian mansion that defies all concepts of sound architectur...

As Chris reported this morning, Konami added Castlevania: Circle of the Moon to the Wii U Virtual Console today, priced at $7.99. This is good news, but it gets even better: the remaining two Castlevania titles for Game Boy A...

Tons of Metal Gear Solid games in this PlayStation Network sale. I was never going to grab Ground Zeroes at full price, but now we're talking. A few older gems in here, too: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (PS3) - $9.99 / $8...



Hearing that Castlevania: Circle of the Moon was headed to the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan got me all worked up a couple weeks ago and I'm still eager to replay the Game Boy Advance title. Not much longer now, thankfully -...

Some of you may be aware that last week a major change happened over on our live channel. Our beloved leader Rick "King Foom" (it's his birthday today, so wish him a happy birthday, will you?) stepped down and passed the meta...

Well, this is awkward. Not only did Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review fairly poorly across the board, now we're seeing former developers step into the light and call out Spanish development studio, MercurySteam, for poor ...


Vampires sure do have a one-track mind, eh? Everything with them is all blood, blood, blood, blood, blood. Blood is family. Blood is power. Blood is everything. We get it. Vampires like blood. Gallons of the stuff. This Cast...

The second part of MercurySteam's Lords of Shadow series, Mirror of Fate HD, can be yours for free if you pre-order Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 digitally on PlayStation Network. A nice little offer for anyon...

This trailer for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 highlights story over gameplay footage and while I normally prefer for the opposite to be true, I'm fine with it here. If you've become invested in this trilogy, you may agree....

Super Castlevania IV is among my top five Castlevania games ever, although some may have a difference of opinion. But however you may feel about the SNES' first Belmont outing, I think we can all agree that that it's complet...

We've been teased before about the possibility of a PC release for the console-bound Castlevania: Lords of Shadow -- Mirror of Fate HD. When asked on Twitter if the game would see a simultaneous PC and console release, produc...

Castlevania:  Lords of Shadow - Ultimate Edition is now available on Steam for $29.99. It brings all the content of the current gen console game plus all the DLC add-on content and turned up graphics (HD, 60 FPS). I'm be...

I'll be spending this week playing catch up, but there's no dearth of new releases. Killer is Dead is tempting me, because bloody hell it looks flashy, but I'll probably leave until I'm not drowning in games. Final Fant...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be out on February 25, 2014 in North and South America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. I'm really looking forward to Lords of Shadow 2, and this new walkthrough video has got me e...

First it was rumored, then it was rumored again, and now, it's official -- Castlevania Lords of Shadow -- Mirror of Fate HD will drop on October 21st on Xbox Live and the PSN. Not a whole lot of details were given (including ...

If you've been itching to get into the Lords of Shadow sub-franchise but haven't done so yet, you may get a chance to try everything at once if this PS3 and Xbox 360 listing is to be believed. Apparently, All Games Beta has u...

While there was a ton of news about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 a few weeks back at San Diego Comic Con, we did have a few more tidbits to share from a joint session with the voice of Gabriel Belmont/Dracula, Robert C...

Super Mario Crossover, the pixel-for-pixel recreation of Super Mario Bros. that features a selectable cast of NES stars, was all set for the big 3.0 update this past June. It was unfortunately delayed a month, but it is now a...

[Update: the demo is up on Steam right now.] The polarizing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is coming to PC soon as an Ultimate Edition, and according to Konami, the demo is hitting Steam tomorrow. While it isn't my favorite gam...

We mentioned a few days ago that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will feature a brand new soundscape. However, what has me even more excited was producer Dave Cox's response to my plea for classic Castlevania tracks, such as "...



As mentioned yesterday, we had the chance to sit down with producer Dave Cox regarding the upcoming Lords of Shadow 2, and he was fortunately able to answer our most pressing question:



Have I ever mentioned that I'm really looking forward to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2? It was my personal favorite game at E3 last month, but Konami gave us some hands-on time with the PC version here at San Diego Comi...


That Lords of Shadow 2 trailer? The one with Sir Patrick Stewart? T'was but a farce. Here is the real trailer. And look! Mega64 managed to worm their way into the game! I don't think there has ever been a more sensual depiction of a vampire in a work of fiction than Rocco Botte's Dracula. Up yours, Twilight! Mega64: CASTLEVANIA LORDS OF SHADOW 2 TRAILER (E3 2013) [YouTube]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 had a new trailer to show off during Konami's pre-E3 event, and it's looking pretty good. There's tons of biting, slashing, and jumping action abound in this fairly lengthy video, showing off s...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the most successful Castlevania game in the franchise (I still can't believe that), is coming to the PC in August. It's being released digitally on August 27th and physically (on August 30th in ...
