TGS: Warg murder in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

There’s been a common trend at TGS this year. Games here come in two flavors; pridefully (or from some perspectives, shamefully) Japanese, or blatantly Western. On one end you’ve got Dream Club Zero, and on the other, you’ve got Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The game isn’t even trying to hide its God of War complex. Still, retaining the Beastiary from past Castlevanias is a nice gesture, and went a long way towards maintaining my attention. I love me some Wargs.

This is more hidden camera footage, so you’ll have to forgive my sometimes pointless narration. To fend of suspicion, I had to act like I was doing something while I was standing there filming, so I pretended to be describing the game to a blind friend.

I think it worked.
