Castlevania: Lords of Shadows | Done!

After a very, very long time, I was able to get back into the Castlevania groove and complete Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for the xbox. One of the reasons that I really got back to it is that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is supposed to be coming out later on this year, and I wanted to be able to continue the series having completed the original.  If you are reading this I assume you've played the game, and if you haven't...SPOILER alert.

In terms of Achievements, I didn't do all that well, but I just wanted to complete the storyline on this one. I think that at the end of the day I only got 19 out of the 50-something achievements.  I really wanted to see what happened in the end, and if Gabriel got Marie back.  I admit, I am a sucker for happy endings.  However, this wasn't to be.  Good ol' Zobek turned out to be manipulating me for his own benefit, made Gabriel kill Marie and others; but in the end, he had his coming! Lucifer killed him, and Gabriel promptly killed Lucifer.

Fast forward to the present - the big reveal is that Gabriel IS Dracula...WTF?!?! Beyond the original shock, I think I like this ending.  It sets up a dueling dynamic between the Belmont clan and Dracula, now revealed that he is one of their own, and of course they need to clean up their own messes...errr...I mean family affairs.  Too bad this this game isn't considered Castlevania Canon. I am looking forward to the second installment.
