News: Video Game Releases

This is where we put out some info about the games we think are going to be somewhere between decent and awesome that release today or later this week.  Typically we skip over the heavy hitters.  Sorry Call of Duty, but 8 million people usually already know about your release date.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate – 3DS

Buy on Amazon

Developed by Mercury Steam and published by Konami.  This is a direct sequel to Lords of Shadow done side scrolling Metroidvania style with playable protagonists Trevor Belmont, Simon Belmont, and Alucard (and I’ll name my son Nhoj).  Really the thing that is going to sell anyone on this game is how invested are you in the Castlevania Lords of Shadow story and whether you own a 3DS or not.  If they make a sequel to this sequel lets hope they abbreviate the name.
