I can't wait for this game to be released! come on mercury systems! speed it up! Uhm no take your time, I don't want a game half finished. As it will be the last LoS game, this release should be legendary!
The LoS story was so amazing. Stories this awesome should be law for games lol. So the trailer showed an epic one sided battle with knights surrounding his castle. I'm guessing they're filling us in on some of the important events that happened between the end of LoS and the "modern times" (pushed out of the window by Zobek) scene. - Fun Fact - Alucard is Dracula reversed to show he stood for beliefs opposite those of his father.
I just bought a PS3 last week (after wanting one FOREVER) and first Lords of Shadow is the first game I've played on it. I'm about half way through. So different from the side scrolling Castlevania games that I loved for years. But it's SO good. The music and the beautiful scenery are amazing. Now I see that LoS2 will be coming out next year. I'm sure when I'm done with the first LoS, I'll be aching to continue on with this one. Some games, I just don't want to end.
How is this a sequel. At the end of the first one it showed a CGI of Gabriel and the character voiced by Patrick Stewart in modern times but the trailer for the second one shows them in the era of knights. What gives?
Saying that I loved the game and can't wait for this one. I just hope that they give us more control over the camera.
They have already announced you will be playing as Gabriel. He just has some supernatural powers to go along with his other abilities this time around. Although it would be cool to play as Alucard since he is such a bad ass mofo.
i swear to god that i got goosebumps when i saw this trailer, If this game is as awesome as the first on(which was very underappriciated) it will so kick ass. i just really hope that it come out in the middle of 2013 since i wanna play this game so bad
Awesome trailer! it seems our hero has become darkness (via the expansion) Well that is what i get for not finishing part1. as for the white haired guy, that must be alucard,
When peeps are talking about playing dracula, well if you mean, "get to play gabriel with an evil force within" then yes. that would be cool (as i do not see any dracula in this teaser) but if we do not get to be gabriel, we might get to play as Alucard. if we are lucky we get to play with both or have a chance to pick whom to play. but i think we are going to become gabriel once again. i hope. but either way it will be cool.
its sad, they wont release Mirror of fate for ps3. they should make an expansion out of it for ps3 atleast. like the expansion pack for F.E.A.R for pc.
This trailer looks good, but it doesn't tell us anything about the gameplay. I'll reserve judgement until I see more. I will say this, though. I was disappointed with the first game, for the following reasons:
--there were way too many puzzle. It was a puzzle after a puzzle, after a puzzle, after another darn puzzle. I called it Puzzlevania instead of Castlevania. None of the games before had nearly as many, if any puzzles, so as such it was a huge departure from what I am used to when I play a Castelvania game.
--the music did not fit the Castlevania mood. It was full of these epic, grand pieces one would expect from a cheesy big budget Hollowood summer blockbuster. It lacked the quirky, spooky, Gothic themes that have defined Castlevania for decades. Give me the old school SOTN music over this uninspired crap any time of day.
--the gameplay didn't feel like Castlevania, it felt like some weird rip-off hybrid of God of War and Shadow of the Colossus, and not a very good one at that.
--they messed up the story. I thought Dracula was that weird guy from Lament of Innocence. Now we find out Dracula is actually a Belmont. wtf! I hate when they retcon well establish plot elements like that.
If they don't make any of mistakes above I may give it a chance, otherwise I'll likely pass.
agree with raidenwins0 ... as for me part 1 was NOT all it could have been. I had hoped it would be the something like dantes inferno and at best: a god of war for the castlevania series, but it ended up alittle short at some ways and made Dantes Inferno better in that sense. I did NOT mind the controls or the layout or story. I love the trailer(s) for part1.
but i do mind that inbetween "levels" that patrik stewart read from a book as we got to see the book (while loading)
instead of getting cutscenes that showed us what Mr. Star trek was talking about. and then there was smal cutscenes with the charachters with how they look in game play. there werent much "kratos kind of cutscenes" as seen in the trailers. (thus keep in mind, i have not yet played the entire game)
and there was moments where there were "rings" like ripples in the water as you should press a button to strike the foe at hand. but when you dont see the ripples, how can u press the right button. there should have been a better QTE. If it was one. not sure since ive only gotten to the first BIG boss. if you can call him that. it had snow landscape, if i dont misstaken. i have NOT knocked part 1. i just havent had time to finish it. but it will be awhile before i can buy part 2 so i will stick to part 1 and all my other games until part2 has the right price.
@Raidenwins0 The developers said multiple times that they are recreating the Castlevania universe, heading in a new direction etc. So you are right it did those things you talked about above and they were all on purpose.
and your right. I have NOT finished part 1. there so many games and so little time! :)besides, it would be even cooler to be able to finish part 1 and then be able to play part 2 right as the next game, I did the same with Kratos 1 and 2. Soooo awesome.
yes, those powers were amazing. cant agree more.
glad you agree. well then we need to cross our fingers that we will get to be BOTH.
as for the gameplay goes, i think that as long as it is better then part 1 (or same as part1) rather then worse then part 1. - it will be great. if you all know what i mean.?!
@TheOldSage They said that? really? can that video be found online?well then i guess it all depends on how they mean, will we get to play as "dracula;dracula" or will it be gabriel:dracula... if u know what i mean?!
@deadkingdg the reply button is back. (it was gone few hours ago)
so i sent you a PM but it works now so i reply here aswell. sorry for the inconviance. ignore the PM if u reply here...
I understand. will check that out once i have a chance to finish the gameand to find my copy of the DLC that i your talking about.Feels abit odd dracula would acctually be a belmont. if the case is that dracula is the same guy - forever.how was it,
is this LoS a reboot for the story??!
and if so, why do you think LoS will end with part 2 ?!
do they mean that there wont be anything following LoS2 or does it mean that the next game following LoS2 will be of a story taking place AFTER with other belmont(s). *if you know what i mean*what do you think they mean?
to add: but as far as we know, this is the case, either we get to play as gabriel (being evil then turning good again) or as Alcuard trying to stop him or help him. we could get to play as both, that be nice. if we got to choose who to play and still be able to play both. that be awesome too. but like you said, it doesnt matter as long as it is castlevania! :D
we could have gotten two games, but it seems they will only release "mirror of fate" for 3ds. that be really sad. no way i am buy a 3ds. not falling for that again.*more later
