October 5th, likely the first big week of game releases heading into the holiday season, is not that far off. More to the point, it's tomorrow. The list of big names coming out tomorrow includes NBA Jam, NBA 2K11, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and the long-awaited Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, developed by Kojima Productions. This marks the first non-Metal Gear, non-handheld game developed by that iconic team since 2003. The early reviews of Lords of Shadow have been positive, with most critics agreeing that it's both a return to the roots of the series and a worthy current-gen action game.
If you've had it on your radar but aren't convinced you need to part with sixty dollars just to see if it's any good, you can now download the game's demo from the Xbox Live Arcade.
PlayStation Plus members have had access to the demo for a few weeks now, and chances are that with tomorrow's PS Store update, the rest of the PS3 faithful will get a gander at it too.
