Castlevania will not be a God of War clone

Castlevania game

In talking to 1UP, KONAMI producer Dave Cox said “We wanted to have big enemies and things like that, the scale and the epicness of it all. The comparisons to God of War are, I think, unfounded. When people see the game, play the game, they’ll see that Lords of Shadow is actually a slower-paced affair. There’s more exploration, there’s more freedom for the player to look around levels and find things. Sure, we have cool combat and cool setpieces; you need to have something like that to appeal to gamers today. But we still have those elements that made Castlevania great. We’re not moving that far away. I think when people see the game they’ll go, ‘That’s Castlevania.'”

Priest Volume 1 review

Priest comic

Ivan Isaacs was once a priest. Devoted to his faith he would have given up anything for it. Then the establishment he believed in turned on him, sending him headlong into Hell. Now, he’s back. With the priesthood now corrupt with demons, the undead and black prayers, he has returned with the help of the demon Belial, a voice in the darkness who offered Ivan a chance at vengeance, in exchange for his soul. With his six-shooter, a bowie knife at his side and the white collar of his former life adorning his neck he is a lost pale rider in a barren wild west where past and future collide.
