    I hope you enjoyed watching this History Of as much as me and Jean-Luc enjoyed making it. Castlevania is one of my favourite series, with Rondo of Blood being my favourite. What's yours? :)

    @Ska ! ok that’s understandable, Castlevania was always better as a 2D game to be honest. Lords of Shadow was very good though

    I loved, LOVED playing Castlevania Harmony of Despair with my friends. The grind for gear and spell/sub exp was a little gross, even cheesing it was a chore, today you'd just see microtransactionactions boost your exp. But 2d small map Castlevania speed runs with 6 playable charachters? That's cool, that's fun. Extra levels and characters, easy sell on the DOC for fans

    Basically Fromsoft decided they liked the direction of Metroidvania games and the 3D platform and perfected it. If you haven't played Bloodborne or Dark Souls... its a great way to dip your toes into the 3d style. I miss 2d games.

    Desde Legacy of Darkness(N64) hasta Lords of Shadow . Fueron casi 10 años en dónde dañaron la franquicia con muchas incongruencias demasiado japonescas para mí gustó . Perdieron ése aire Europeo pensé qué la franquicia ya no tenía más que dar, como todas las franquicias de Konami qué no han sabido sostener y se han perdido en él tiempo. Hasta qué salió Lords of Shadow La franquicia volvió con una visión diferente, pero aceptable y mejor de lo qué venía haciendo antes de éste título . La verdad lo he jugado y disfrutado mucho tanto cómo Lords of Shadow 1 cómo la 2 y hoy en día los sigo disfrutando . Nada que ver con los de PS2 y los que salieron después hasta los mensionados
