  • The Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 demo was something that left me wanting more.  Not in the sense that what I played left me so excited that I need to play the whole thing tomorrow, but more in the sense that I wished it had more to offer and hoping the whole game has more to it.   Admittedly the demo was rather barebones so it is possible not every system has been implemented.  The combat system is still quite fun, LB switches to a blade which can heal you with every successful hit on the enemy.  RB switches to claws which help you destroy shields which some enemies hold onto, as well as completely obliterate those who don’t have shields.  Not selecting either leaves you with what I assume […]

  • Following the announcement of The Witcher 3 earlier this week, CD Projekt RED revealed that the series has sold over 5 Million copies.  That’s amazing for a rather niche series and definitely a sign that you don’t need DRM on a game in order for it to sell well as neither Witcher games contain any.  Hopefully Geralt’s third and final game will end with even more success! In case you missed them the first time, now is a great chances to catch up as The Witcher and The Witcher 2 are both 50% off on Steam and GOG.com.
