Looking forward to this! Loved LoS1 and cant wait for the 3DS edition

same here and it's good to see that the PS3 is the lead platform.

Fuck yea, PS3 Lead platform = Gorgeous graphics with nothing holding back Teh Cell.
mewhy32  +   1193d ago
well the ps3 being the lead platform is a good move for any multiconsole release. Ports from ps3 to xbox 360 usually go great. The trouble begins when you lead on 360 and then try to port to ps3.

Heck yeah I got C:LoS in PS3 and it is down right the best looking multiplat action adventure rpg I have ever played. It's almost as good looking as god of war and uncharted. The story was 20+ hours and the gam was just incredible. the Spanish mythology used int he game would make Guillermo del Toro weep with joy and the presentation was flawless. This game was GOTY worthy and deserved more attention.

Only thing I would of wanted is an open world style more MetroidVania and not just levels. They could of loaded between the areas but wanted something with more exploration for those upgrades and treasures. Still this is one of my favorite games this generation.

yep, no compression of anything, and cutting off extended scene to fit on Dvds.

The 3DS version is 2D and not like LoS1 or 2. The Vita version will be 3D, so they're very different from the 3DS version.
ShadyDevil  +   1194d ago
There is no Vita version.

I don't see where that article confirms anything as to the format of a Vita game...

But it's because it's a 2D game that I'm interested in the 3DS CV! Hopefully we'll get some Itagaki-esque magic on that one.

Same here...I'm more excited about the 3ds version than the home console version.I'm probably in the minority though.

konami games i think always use ps3 as lead console. also i hope down the road the 3ds version comes to psn/xboxlive or atleast Vita
Heavenly King  +   1194d ago
It makes sense to have the PS3 as lead console, because the game sells more there. And it is easier to port a PS3 game to the 360 than the other way around.
taquito  +   1194d ago
really looking forward to this, the first game was downright amazing:)
KwietStorm  +   1194d ago
Good. The first one ran great on PS3. No reason to port now.
Hufandpuf  +   1194d ago
I hated switching discs on my 360, but the game was so good I'll be getting the second one.
GribbleGrunger  +   1193d ago
you've been waiting for that second disc THIS long? aren't you interested in finding our how it ends before you buy the second game?
doogiebear  +   1193d ago
What, are you slow? He meant buying the 2nd game, not the 2nd disc of the first game. I'm sure he wasnt that lazy.
GribbleGrunger  +   1193d ago
could you demonstrate 'slow' for me
GameOn  +   1193d ago
Summons75  +   1194d ago
There wasn't any difference between the versions though. Eh I got the first on the 360 so I'll get the sequel on it as well, actually get the thing some use
jc48573  +   1194d ago
well, according to face off and lensoftruth, the game performs and looks slightly better on the ps3 than the 360, but what really sealed the deal was mainly because everything was on one disc instead of two. They were annoyed that they had to swap discs even after the game was installed for the 360.

eh I could careless about disc swapping almost makes games more enjoyable in a weird way. Don't see why it's a big deal nobody complained when they had to swap discs for FF7 so there should be no reason now, but that's just me. I honestly played both and didn't see a huge difference. I enjoyed the game which is the important part.
jc48573  +   1194d ago
no, it would make sense if you only get to swap (from disc 1 to 2) once per play. They actually make you swap whenever you go back to the earlier part of the game from disc 2 back to disc 1.

I have both consoles, so I had to see which one had the advantage. I chose ps3 over 360 version mainly because of the weird disc swap.

Summons75  +   1194d ago
except there was no reason to go back once I beat the game unless I wanted to start over
GameOn  +   1193d ago
Have to admit I found it a bit annoying. There were challenges to do and you could choose which stage you wanted to play (as in you didn't need to do them in order). go back or forward too far and it was disc swap time. nothing killer but bit of an annoyance.

Nice, bought the first for the PS3 and will follow suite.

Eamon  +   1194d ago
I wonder how it'll feel to play as Dracula this time.

I also hope we'll be playing in the present too.
doogiebear  +   1193d ago
Present? Did u actually see the trailer?
Eamon  +   1193d ago
I did but have you seen the post-credits ending of LOS?
TheDivine  +   1194d ago
Cant wait for this. The first was one of the best games of the gen imo, def the best hack n slash game. I might acually be more excited for the 3ds game though, i really love 2d castlevanias. Gonna be a good fall thats for sure!
GameOn  +   1193d ago
Go and master Bayonetta. I did and it's AMAZING.
Hassassin  +   1194d ago
no PC lead? :B
Skate-AK  +   1194d ago
Thats good. Games ported from PS3 to 360 run better on both consoles then it does when ported from 360 to PS3.
DivineAssault  +   1194d ago
xbots wont like a game like this.. Slap a few guns in it & then itl sell
doogiebear  +   1193d ago
lol. The most played game on Live is STILL MW2. So u might have a point there.

Braid  +   1193d ago
I loved the first one. It had everything you needed: amazing graphics, solid gameplay, huge boss fights, great pacing with both combat and puzzles, enjoyable platforming elements, a masterpiece soundtrack and a thrilling story with twists and turns. You're really missing out a great game if you haven't played it already.
sandman224  +   1193d ago
That's great let ps3 be the lead platform so we can see what it can do. I hate when the sorry a.. 360 is lead. They ruin multiplats for the ps3. My biggest gripe is call of duty. My favorite 3rd party game and I end up with a shitty version for my ps3. This is unacceptable. That company can easily develop the game from ground up on both consoles (ps3/360) but they haven't since mw2, at least I think.
