'Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2' Review: Devil's Due

bloody disgusting - Sun, 03/02/2014 - 16:01

The first Lords of Shadow was a pleasant surprise. It succeeded where previous 3D Castlevania games had failed by offering a thoughtfully crafted fantasy adventure game with creative monsters, mesmerizingly beautiful set pieces, clever puzzles, and visceral combat. All its sequel had to do was build on that foundation and lore, tighten up the controls a bit, and keep throwing interesting enemies and puzzles my way. Instead, what developer MercurySteam did was throw us violently into the present day, tack on some stealth mechanics, and wrap it all up in a horribly convoluted story.

Read on for my review of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

Clearly, I’m not burying the lead here. This game is a disappointment. It’s clunky, its mechanics lack the polish fans expect from a AAA game released at the tail end of a console generation. What makes this game particularly disappointing is the multiple times I can see the first Lords of Shadow hiding under the visage of this sequel. Every so often, usually when I’m combating one of its clever bosses or traversing a fantastical locale, I catch a glimpse of what could’ve been.

It’s frustrating. MercurySteam is a talented developer, and in some small ways, this entry is superior to its predecessors. The whip combat is more responsive this time around, the special effects — especially the gore, for all you gorehounds out there — is used in some neat ways. The environments can be beautiful and unfamiliar, but those feelings are largely restricted to the “past,” because the dreary industrial look of the present is entirely unappealing.

Story-wise, if you haven’t played the first Lords of Shadow, this is going to be a difficult game to follow. It jumps between different timelines, and even though I beat the first game twice — though I never played the 3DS entry, Mirror of Fate — I found it tough to understand what’s going on. The gist of it is Dracula, formerly known as Gabriel Belmont, has awakened hundreds of years after the events in the first game, where he defeated the Lords of Shadow only to be cursed as the immortal Prince of Darkness.

In the present day, Zobek (voiced by the always wonderful Sir Patrick Stewart) warns him that Satan is planning to return, and he’s using his acolytes to get the job done. Unfortunately for Dracula, a gaggle of Belmonts as well as his son, Alucard, are all looking to end him for being a dick so long ago.

The story isn’t terribly complicated, but the way its explained over the course of the first hour of the game could’ve used a defter hand.

There’s still plenty to love about this game, such as the combat, which has seen some refinement. You’re introduced to Dracula’s suite of weapons early on, only to have them taken away in true Metroidvania style. The whip offers fantastic crowd control, the Void Sword steals the life from enemies with each strike and its ability to freeze objects makes it useful for solving puzzles, and the Chaos Claws are slow, but they deal a lot of damage, making them perfect for beating down a single enemy.

The enemies are still top-notch. Either I’m rusty at this or MercurySteam has imbued the AI with a little more cunning, but I found that each fight challenged my skills. Dodging is weirdly fun, and a well-aimed one can knock down an enemy. If you’re more adept at this game you can utilize Dracula’s more advanced arsenal of moves, like parrying enemy attacks. I was rarely able to do it, but that only made the feat more rewarding when I did.

Then, almost always just as I start to notice that I’m enjoying my time with it, Lords of Shadow 2 zigs when it should zag. I’m all for an unpredictable game, but not like this.

As an example, not long after the demo ends, we’re introduced to a new stealth mechanic. Apparently, Dracula lacks the power to take on some gun wielding space marine looking things — for reference, if the Strogg from Quake merged with a StarCraft Marine, these guys would resemble the result — so because they’ll end him in about three hits, he has to use his new arsenal of powers to distract with swarms of bats and transform into a rat to scuttle past them.

For some reason, Dracula is only able to transform from the dark corner of one part of the room. It’s a silly, underrealized mechanic that feels horribly out of place.

In contrast to its often challenging nature, this is a ridiculously hand-holdy game. Tutorials and tooltips appear often and largely unwanted, and I almost immediately grew tired of that annoying ringing sound it makes when a “helpful hint” appeared. For the first hour of the game, the solution to every puzzle was spelled out for me, most often through a slow, panning camera that showed my path or an object of interest. Video games that treat the player like an idiot are a pet peeve of mine because they teach us nothing.

The player won’t learn a thing if you hold their hand and guide them through your puzzles. A better way to go about that would have been to slowly introduce each new mechanic — instead of just tossing in one after the next like Lords of Shadow 2 does — and have the player to learn how to use it through a puzzle or arena fight before introducing the next mechanic.

For the most part, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a less cohesive game than its predecessors. The art, combat, and beautiful score offer brief moments of brilliance, but in an effort to shoehorn new mechanics, this feels more like a patchwork of several great ideas that are never thread together as tightly as they should be.

The Final Word: Lords of Shadow 2 is an exercise in frustration. It could have been so much more — it should have been so much more — but instead we’re left with a hugely disappointing end to what started out as a promising trilogy. This is for diehard Castlevania fans, otherwise, give it a rent.

Heavy metal band Metallica will be popping open some champagne bottles in the near future as their 1991 self-titled album (which is widely referred to as the Black Album) is expected pass 16 million copies sold in the next few months. The album averages sales between 2,000 to 3,000 per week.

The album has already been certified as 16 times platinum for shipping over 16 million copies and is, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era.

I defended this album pretty strongly in my article, “Metallica And The Case Of The Entitled Fans”, which you can read here. I mean, considering that it was the album that got me into metal, it’s always going to have a special place in my heart!

[Random Cool] Have A Fantastic "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Acoustic Cover

bloody disgusting - Sun, 03/02/2014 - 10:00

One of my most hated songs is Nirvana‘s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. It’s been played to absolute death for me AND I actually can’t stand the band. Believe me when I say that i understand that the band had a huge impact on the music scene and were at the forefront of the grunge scene. That doesn’t mean I have to like them.

All that being said, this acoustic cover of the aforementioned song is something really interesting as it takes the original and twists into something really unique. Give it a listen below and let me know your thoughts!

'Dark Souls II' Reimagined As An 80s Cartoon

bloody disgusting - Sun, 03/02/2014 - 02:43

We’ve already seen Dark Souls II reimagined as a 16 bit game, but this video, crafted by YouTuber Veselekov takes us even further back in time to the glorious era of 1980s action cartoons.

In Dark Souls II: Rogue Warrior, the game gets pumped with no less than a vat of awesome. This is something that needs to keep going, but for that to happen you’re going to need to do two things: first, enjoy this painfully brief tease of what could be, then subscribe to their channel so they’ll be motivated to make more. Come on, Internet. Let’s make this happen.

Dark Souls II arrives on March 11 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

Bite Labs Lets You Eat Your Favorite Celebrities

Dread Central - Sat, 03/01/2014 - 17:38

File this one under "casual cannibalism," kids, as we have just come one step closer to Soylent Green as meat maker Bite Labs has found a way to combine celebrity tissue samples and animal products to create some fine salamis. Yep, didn't think I'd be writing about this today. Or even this year.

From the Bite Labs website:

"We start with top-quality ingredients and time-honored recipes for the creation of fine cured meats. We mix celebrity and animal meats, grown inhouse through a proprietary culturing process, into curated salami blends. Starting with biopsied myoblast cells, we grow our healthy, rich meats in Bite Labs’ own bioreactors. Our process yields high-quality, luxury protein, in a sustainable manner that eliminates the environmental and ethical concerns associated with traditional livestock production.”

Yep... we're all doomed. Enjoy the ride while it lasts. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go check if they have any of Keith Richards' mescaline-soaked pork loin left in stock.

The couple engages the two friends in a series of innocent dares in exchange for money over the course of the evening, with each challenge upping the ante in both reward and boundaries. It seems like easy and much needed money, but the couple’s twisted sense of humor pushes just how far Craig and his friend are willing to go for money and cheap thrills.

Fox News Anchor Mocks 'Nevermind' Developer On-Air

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/01/2014 - 16:15

Erin Reynolds is a developer whose spent a large portion of her career in the games industry working on AAA titles. She recently made the move to indie development with Nevermind, an innovative concept for a horror game that would double as a tool for managing stress. The more stressed you become, the more difficult the game becomes. It’s a neat idea, and one that seems to go over this particular Fox News anchor’s head.

Because some people are awful human beings, things quickly go south in the developer’s recent interview in a Fox Business segment. In it, Reynolds tries her best to explain the idea behind the game and how its biofeedback mechanic works. She does a wonderful job of it, too — impressive seeing as this ridiculously unprofessional anchor mocks her the entire time.

Watch Us Play: 'Resident Evil 4 Ultimate Edition' Episode 1

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/01/2014 - 15:19

One of my all-time favorite games is Resident Evil 4. Set in Guatemala at the turn of the 18th century, the game follows Leon Kennedy, a waiter at his father’s restaurant, as he goes about his mundane life, serving people day after day because he’s too afraid to follow his true passion of starting an Etsy store so he can sell hand-made puppets. Then, one fateful day, he serves a mysterious woman named Ada Wong who introduces him to black market organ trading. The rest is a roller coaster ride of romantic comedy and visceral thrills. One thing’s for sure: Leon will never be the same.

Okay, no, everything after that first line is a lie. Today we’re kicking off a brand new series where we’ll be playing the newly released Resident Evil 4 Ultimate Edition. More after the break!

Would You Eat Celebrity Meat?!

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/01/2014 - 14:21

Have you guys seen Antiviral, Brandon Cronenberg’s psychotic futuristic thriller in which Caleb Landry Jones buys and sells cloned celebrity meat? It’s seriously fucked up – and awesome (read my review).

What if this became a reality? Would you taste a celebs cloned meat, and if so, whose?

Bloody reader ‘Iain W.’ just tipped us off to to Bite Labs, a new meat company that is prepping this reality and will offer food inspired by celebs such as Kanye West, James Franco and Jennifer Lawrence. Creepy.

Explains the site: “We start with top-quality ingredients, and time-honored recipes for the creation of fine cured meats. We mix celebrity and animal meats, grown in house through a proprietary culturing process, into curated salami blends. Starting with biopsied myoblast cells, we grow our healthy, rich, meats in Bite Labs’ own bioreactors.

Our process yields high-quality, luxury protein, in a sustainable manner that eliminates the environmental and ethical concerns associated with traditional livestock production.

In this interview with one of the founders, “Kevin,” he explains that they “are working full time on this” and are “100 percent serious in prompting widespread discussion about bioethics, lab-grown meats, and celebrity culture—this is very important to us. Making celebrity meat a reality from there will all depend on our ability to build a user-base.”

I guess if I were some sort of psycho, and had to pick a celebrity to “taste”, I’d choose Michael Jordan to absorb his greatness (à la Ravenous).

You?

bloody disgusting - Sat, 03/01/2014 - 12:06

Revenge is a dish best served cold…

On March 4 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the Blu-ray and DVD editions of Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 new classic, Oldboy, which I felt got a pretty bad rap. While the film isn’t nearly as shocking or impactful as the original (I blame the writers for making Brolin such an evil character), it’s stunning to look at, features incredible sets, and is insanely brutal. Frankly, I liked it.

Those of you familiar with the original will enjoy the following exclusive clip that teases the new shocking finale, which plays out quite differently than Chan-wook’s version.

In addition, we have (10) copies of the DVD for you to enter to win. Al you have to do is put OLDBOY in the subject line and send me your FULL NAME and address to submit@bloody-disgusting.com. Winners chosen at random. U.S. only and no POX boxes.

Joe Doucette is a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason. When he is suddenly released without explanation, he begins an obsessive mission to find out who imprisoned him, only to discover that the real mystery is why he was set free.

Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Samuel Jackson, James Ransone star.

The remake of the cult classic 2003 Korean film of the same name is directed by Spike Lee from a screenplay by Mark Protosevich. The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane, with Joe Drake, John Powers Middleton and Peter Schlessel serving as executive producers.

The Blu-ray will feature:

Haunted Los Angeles Hotel Inspires Sony's 'The Bringing'

bloody disgusting - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 17:15

Sony Pictures and Matt Tolmach Productions have acquired The Bringing, a horror spec script written by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and based on an actual place and series of events, says Deadline.

The spec’s basis is on a woman, Elisa Lam, who was found dead in the water tanks on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. That’s the place that killers like Richard Ramirez called home at one time or another, and where suicides have occurred. Explains the site, footage of Lam’s bizarre inexplicable behavior in an elevator before her death became a massive internet sensation, and this has been turned into the story of the man investigating her death, and the nightmare he stumbles into.

Michael De Luca championed the project, which means it’s probably very good.

Sony Bringing Elisa Lam's Haunting and Frightening Tale to the Big Screen

Dread Central - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 17:07

2013 Was home to one of the most frightening news stories that the world has ever seen. I speak of the truly mysterious case of Elisa Lam. Let me tell you, not much scares me. Her story however? Yeah, her story scares the hell out of me. As does the video of her last living moments.

Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures and Matt Tolmach Productions have acquired The Bringing, a horror spec script written by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and based on an actual place and series of events.

The spec is based on a woman, Elisa Lam, who was found dead in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. That’s the place that killers like Richard Ramirez called home at one time or another and where suicides have occurred. Footage of Lam’s bizarre inexplicable behavior in an elevator before her death became a massive internet sensation, and this has been turned into the story of the man investigating her death and the nightmare he stumbles into.

For those of you who aren't familiar with this case...

Lam, who was only 21, was last seen at the Cecil Hotel on January 31st, 2013, according to L.A. police. Her parents had reported her missing, and her body was discovered, nude and floating in the water tower of the hotel (a drinking source for residents), where she apparently was for two weeks. Now, if you can believe it, here’s where the story gets REALLY disturbing.

Lam’s final moments were caught on the elevator security camera of the hotel. The footage you see below was taken moments before her death. In it you’ll see Lam acting very strangely. She appears to be running from or hiding from someone... or something. Most perplexing about the video is that the door stays open the entire time, nearly four minutes. Then Lam contorts into some really frightening way that has to be seen to really be described, and the elevator doors shut. Then open and shut several times before the video ends. Watch the video, and then I’ll tell you about how this story gets even stranger.

A maintenance worker discovered the body while looking into complaints about the water pressure in the building. Guests had been drinking and bathing with water contaminated by a body that had been decomposing for nearly two weeks. So how did she get there? The water tower on top of the building was 15 feet high and locked. To gain access to said tower, Lam would have had to have passed silently through two locked and alarmed doors first. Apparently she did so. All doors were still locked. No alarms were ever tripped. There are 100's of stories about this on the internet reported by every reputable news agency that there is. Some people say she was possessed or attacked by a ghost. If this is the case, then this is the only known footage of such an occurrence.
