I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.

Just one new game this week, but it’s one I’ve been looking forward to playing. Lords of Shadow is a spinoff series to the vanilla Castlevania and it’s a bit darker and action-y than the previous series. This is also the first portable Castlevania game since 2008’s Order of Ecclesia on the DS. Seeing as that game and pretty much every portable game in the series is stellar, this game has some hefty shoes to fill (spinoff or not). My time with the game so far has been good: I like the dark visuals and hack-n-slash gameplay, as well as getting to play as series stalwart Simon Belmont again. More to come in the review!
