Yeah, Gabriel Belmont is kind of a dick

The fine fellows at Penny Arcade have opinions about most games, and the recently released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is no exception. Tycho seems to like it, in any case. However, their Wednesday comic indicates a certain reluctance to condone Gabriel Belmont’s habit of just, like, randomly staking werewolves.

I love it that these guys include werewolves in their comics so often (relatively speaking), and that Gabe draws them differently every time.

Gabriel Belmont is Going to Beat Up This Werewolf in “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow”

The recently announced Castlevania reboot “Castlevania: Lords of Shadow” for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has got among its cast of enemies a kind of batty, kind of ratty werewolf. Would you like to see some grainy E3 2010 gameplay footage where Gabriel Belmont turns his foes (including a dramatically introduced werewolf) into clouds of blood? Here you go!

Would you like to see a giant render of the werewolf model, in all its leathery-textured glory? Well, my friends, we’re two for two! Click to embiggen.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Screenshots (in Which a Werewolf is Beaten Up)

Everything old is new again, even Castlevania. I spent the summer of 1987 hitting things with Simon Belmont’s whip, and now Kanomi is rebooting the series so that today’s gamers can hit things with Gabriel Belmont’s whip. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is being developed for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, and should be out later this year. Here are two screenshots from a batch that Kanomi recently released (thanks, CinemaBlend), and they’re the only two that show any combat. Fortunately(?) that combat is against a werewolf. Click madly on the images below for (much) larger versions.
