Nintendo Power never has any big reveal, I'm not surprised it's something we already have heard about.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Have to see it in motion, the screen on ********** look like crap - but it is too soon to judge for now.

From the original leak, this is supposed to be a bridge between LoS and LoS2. So, it is a sequel, but it's not the three-course meal sequel.

I'm just soooo glad they're putting so much emphasis on combat again... Seriously, there's more to Castlevania than its combat.

They can call this whatever they want, but Castlevania as I know it is dead.

Game looks terrible. Honestly, I'm not even going to give it a chance. I mean, most of us probably aren't, but I'm actually admitting it. I'm probably not missing out on anything.

Lords of Shadow had lovely art, I don't think you could really go after it for that, this one image aside.

I'd go after it because it was an extremely drug out, C-tier God of War clone that ran at 20 FPS.
