Game Description
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Ultimate Edition is the complete edition of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, a dark and vivid new re-imagining of the Castlevania mythology. It is the end of days and ungodly powers isolate the Earth. The world’s alliance with the heavens has been threatened by a dark and malevolent force – the mysterious Lords of Shadow. Across this shattered land, the souls of the dead wander unable to find peace, whilst creatures of evil wreak chaos and death upon the living.

Gabriel Belmont is a member of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. His beloved wife was brutally murdered by the evil forces of darkness and her soul trapped for eternity. Neither living nor dead she realizes the horrific truth of what is at stake and guides Gabriel to his destiny and hopefully salvation for the world.

Reverie – DLC
Reverie marks a return to the game’s climactic castle setting as Gabriel seeks to assist the recently-slain vampire Queen’s hand maiden. The download spans three stages, and offers a breath-taking twist to the game’s plot

Resurrection – DLC
Resurrection, which itself follows on from the completed Reverie, lays bare the fate of both Gabriel and the Belmont clan. Gabriel must battle an evil demon known only as ‘The Forgotten One’ that has broken loose of its ancient chains.

These new DLC levels provides a stunning finale to KONAMI’s epic tale of death, betrayal and redemption – with ‘The Forgotten One’ intent on destroying mankind, and only Gabriel standing between it and its goal…

Russian Movies Weekend #5

This Russian Movies Weekend won’t show you any animation. But instead you can watch Brat and Brat 2, two movies by Alexey Balabanov, which both became a cult right after their releases. I’m not a big fan of the main character/the actor, but the story and filming are really good in my opinion.

Unfortunately, though both these movies are available online in good HD quality, they lack subtitles other than Russian. So I had to make two torrents for you, with 15 languages in each of them. If you don’t see your subs language, check OpenSubtitles.org

Soon, co-op will be added, and players will be able to combine spells to create chain reactions, in order to overcome greater challenges.

You’re a former captain of a mercenary band forced to liberate 13 nations of the Drotus Empire in order to regain the lost “Glory”. Your path will lead you on an epic and unexpected adventure with your companion, as you wander in this shattered world. Join the dark journey and experience overwhelming enemy encounters, diabolical hazards, and the unrelenting challenges.
