Shadows Of The Damned: A Typical Demon Hunter Day

It's just another run-of-the-mill day in the life of a demon hunter.

Shadows of the Damned darkened store shelves yesterday and quite a few gamers have been talking about the game's style, attitude, and relentless action. If you have yet to make a decision concerning a purchase, check out the latest video:

Garcia Hotspur is on a journey into hell to save his beloved (sound familiar?) and in his path are all sorts of nasty creatures...and they're just begging to be torched in one way or another. A third-person shooter with a unique vibe, this one seems promising, no?

Look for our Shadows of the Damned review later this week.

lol that was a pretty entertaining video. It's like watching some kind of a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Hmmm, same plot as Dantes Inferno. I'll give it romp and see how Garcia's story turns out.

Also dante's inferno doesn't have the crude humor that this game has. No matter how creepy or intense this game has got so far it always put a smile on my face. ^^

The description on the Blog reminded me of Orpheus and Eurydice, though it clearly doesn't share much with that myth. I may have had Orpheus on the brain after watching The Killing.

I just thought I'd throw my favorite line in the game so far. "Now that is one big boner!" - Garcia Hotspur. Hah who would of thought that one of the main characters (which is actually your gun) would be so funny.

Crap, I forgot all about this game, and I just picked up a few good game deals so I already spend my last few gaming bucks on MOH, UFC09, & Kung Fu Rider.


Anyways, here's an interesting article about different reviewers of this game so far....

I heard is awesome an all but not much replay value for a game that is just 9-10 hours.

btw the catchphrases Garcia said are nothing like the subtitles suggest, this guy has a sailor mouth xD.

The lack of new game+ is dissapointing. Otherwise looks pretty awesome. I will wait on this one fo a price drop.

So no new game+ ? well...

I don't know about the details but when there isn't much replay value on a 10 hours game I usually wait for the price drop.

Unless I find an awesome offer, like Yakuza 4 that was 39.99 in the first week on best buy :D.

Someone know about a good offer for this game?

Y4 is what I expected of Y3, also a much better plot those people that say Y3>Y4 on history sure didn't play the game and believe anything that comes of IGN.

there was a headline on cvg saying the first shadows of the damned review rolls in at 9.25. i forget where the review came from but it had a lot of high praise for the game. they said it plays like an adolescent fueled re4 in a good way.

that comparison has me pretty interested in the game even though at first i wasn't that impressed with the gameplay footage i saw. i will defintely keep an eye on it. i loved vanquish even i thouht it was way too short.

in a market flooded with serious military fps material and lacking a lot of japanese games this might be the kind of original game i'd go for.

I'm gonna need the psxtreme review for this one.
