Due to a rather abject lack of free time these days I've not been able to complete and review Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, so instead I'm doing this good old "First 10 minutes" (and more!) with a few videos and my impressions of this game. More inside!
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is without a doubt one of the most polarizing games of this generation. Here is a game that can happily claim to be one of the most beautiful titles of the generation, but also one of the least smooth. It comes along with a very interesting combat system, but also a rather strangely imprecise control system during the platforming sequences, and, above all, a highly annoying fixed camera system. It seems that in every compartment of the game, there is an unfortunate "but" to contrast with what has been well-executed.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow could have been very close to being one of the best of its genre for this generation, but its numerous defects keep it from getting up there. Personally, my main motivation to keep playing is its amazing artistic direction and its interesting combat system. This is what makes me want to go on, despite the not so clear (at times) platforming system, the rather obtuse (at times, again) puzzles, and all of these little annoyances.
difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (2 Hours ago)
I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (2 Hours ago)
ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (11 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (15 Hours ago)
These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (17 Hours ago)
I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (17 Hours ago)
