@bacongames: Sure, I get your point and I agree with the flaws you pointed out, but those were already flaws (or just weird design choices - take your pick) back in the day and have nothing do with how the game has aged/compares to later games.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: I just don't like arguments that older games are defacto more flawed then newer ones, just because they came out earlier and thus have more "outdated" mechanics. And really in general that they are judged for their historical context that often, instead of simply looking at the games themselves.

I like the NES Castlevania games for what they actually are and not for them being important games in the side scrolling genre's early days. They had their flaws, as every game does, and aren't as amazing as a lot of nostalgia minded people think, but in my opinion they are good games in their own rights - nothing more, nothing less.

I just discovered that there's a second interaction with the thug in the cell later on. This time Batman just feigns a hit and the guy panics and knocks himself out cold. It's good stuff.

Some epic deaths in this already and Austin is a great fit here as well, even though I hope on the next episode we'll have the whole crew on.

Also no matter what anyone says: This game was (and is) great, arguing that newer releases are better mechanics wise is a bit weird, since that would be "true" for practically every old game.

Once again the GBeast has compelled me to spend money on a game immediately, even though I barely have time to play anything. Damn you, GBeast!

I guess there being a 1st anniversary theme implies that we'll see a lot more releases over the next few months, which is great, because this QLs are gold.

Really disappointing that this still seems to be very broken in some aspects.

Oh, I don't know, that lost podcast sounded just amazing and was obviously the first sign of the multi-verse merging into a single one.

@smorlock: Honestly all I see are some rather subtle differences. I agree that it does look better, but it's still way too similar to IV if you ask me.

I guess I should try to complete at least some of the 100 (it's really "only" the 8th game?) spin-off titles before this finally comes out.

It's a terrible trailer all right, but not because it's offensive or too much or whatever.
