Ten Games To Play While The PlayStation Network Is Down -- 'Twiggy' The Push Square Opinionator

The issues Sony's been having with its PlayStation Network service are well documented across the web

I'm told the folks at this very publication have been frantically clamouring for more information on the situation, but Sony's remaining tight-lipped. Honestly, it's probably for the best. No matter how big or small the problem is, Sony will want to control the message that comes out of the..

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow DLC Sadly Delayed Until March

Having played the brilliant Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow as one of our Christmas catch-up games (yes, even we have those), we were rather looking forward to MercurySteam's continuation of the narrative with the previously announced "Reverie" DLC

Unfortunately the additional single-player content has been pushed back until March as per an announcement on the game's Facebook page. No word on whether..

Konami Teases Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow "Reverie" DLC

Konami's been teasing Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's first DLC pack, "Reverie", for a while now on the game's Facebook page

The site teases: “Tick tock… It’s time for another glimpse into the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ‘Reverie’ DLC. What might Gabriel try to change with this time machine?” As is the case for all of Lords Of Shadow, the artwork's yummy.

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Is Getting All Patched Up

There's an issue in the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow

Some users have reported a problem in which save data gets corrupted. The game asks you to hit the X button to "overwrite" and bam, just like that your save is gone. But Konami's on the problem. The publisher reassured fans that "a patch for the PS3 save issue affecting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is..

Sure Hope You Liked Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 'Cos There's Probably Another One Coming

According to a report on Eurogamer Spain, MercurySteam's already talking about a follow-up to Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow

The soundtrack composer for the first game has told Spanish radio: “If you liked the first , hope that the second is even more spectacular.” We're going to assume it's already in the early stages of development. The engine's in place, yo. Sequel is good to go.

UK Charts: FIFA 11 Fights Off Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, Enslaved & Castlevania Debut

Are we going have to buy a factory's worth of Enslaved stock? After that ending we need the game to be profitable enough for Ninja Theory to develop a follow-up

But the first week's sales aren't looking overly promising. Well - perhaps we're exaggerating. Breaking the top ten at this time of year is hard work. So both Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow and Enslaved deserve a huge pat on the back for..

First Impressions: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay

From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..

European PlayStation Plus Members Get To Demo Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Today

Sony's confirmed that European PlayStation Plus members will get a neat little bonus as part of their PlayStation Plus subscription today

Members will get access to the Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow demo a week before it launches for everyone next week. The new Castlevania title's due in October and is being overlooked by Metal Gear Solid's Hideo Kojima.

GamesCom 2010: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Hits Early October

Konami's dated their Dracula slaying foray into the God Of War genre, by whipping Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow with an October 5th and 7th release date for America and Europe respectively

Konami's added that the game will be presented with two DLC packs after release, both of which will further the game's narrative. Seems a bit dodgy to us, that. Still, Konami's touting that there's 20 hours of..

XBOX 360 Space Limitations Rear Their Ugly Head Again

It's been a while since we last posted about the XBOX 360's space limitations

Last time, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi basically conceded that content had been cut from Lost Planet 2 (both XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3) to get the game on a DVD. It sucks, because those of us with PlayStation 3s are often suffering due to the 360's storage limitations. Ever played a game and wondered why the cut-scenes are so..

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Confirmed For October

Konami's confirmed that Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow will hit the PlayStation 3 this coming October

That's actually not too far away folks. There's no exact date announced yet, but presumably that's coming during GamesCom. PS3Valut's also got hold of a shot of the game's boxart. We've embedded that above. It looks... Disappointing.

Castlevania Devs "Looked At" Playstation Move But "Decided Against It" For Lords Of Shadow

There's a new Castlevania game coming out

It's called Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow. It would probably be pretty cool with the Playstation Move, but ultimately developers MercurySteam "decided against" using Sony's new motion controller. This information comes via a Tweet from producer David Cox: "No we aren’t using the Playstation Move in this game. We did look at it but decided..

Castlevania Man: Uncharted 2 Didn't "Redefine Action Games" (Erm, Nobody Said It Did?)

Well this is an odd one

We liked Uncharted 2: Among Thieves because it was the best game of 2009. The gameplay mechanics, stunning visuals and fabulous scripting, pacing and voice acting were all key components for its success. Many hail Uncharted 2 as one of the best games this generation - but for some reason, in an interview with PSM3 magazine, Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's producer has felt..
