Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver Headed to PSN

on October 10, 2009 2:07 PM

One of my favorite series involved a jawless ex-vampire that went by the name of Raziel. Two words for this dude: bad ass. I’m not too sure how many of you know about this game, but for those of you who haven’t the slightest idea and are interested in learning about it, you’ll get your chance. And to those of you who are avid fans of the series as I am, you will have the glory of re-playing the first part of the series – Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver – yet again.

Because America’s game rating board, the ESRB, is so ridiculously ignorant with the term “secret,” they have, once again, has let slip on the PS3 and PSP release of the PSOne Classic.

The story takes protagonist Raziel on a quest for revenge on the almighty vampire Kain. As Kain’s first lieutenant, Raziel approached Kain’s throne in order to reveal his newly grown wings. To punish Raziel for surpassing him in evolution, Kain yanks off the bones from Raziel’s wings and has him tossed in the Lake of the Dead to burn forever which, in turn, renders the poor bastard jawless. To cover his deformed face, Raziel wears an American Apparel scarf he found somewhere and ventures in a world full of everything, consuming souls in the process, to seek revenge.

Sounds good right? That’s because it is, people. My tummy is tingling in delight! Thanks, ESRB, for letting yet another title slip from your mouths. 🙂
