Earning experience points will unlock the ability to execute combo moves, like launching enemies into the air, smashing them into the ground and so on.
For all your Belmont needs, keep it locked on IGN.
Same. I hope they treat this game as a "portable" installment of the series instead of trying to make it into a "portable-console" game. I honestly think the latter is going to end up happening and I hope I'm proven wrong.
Saw those last night. Looks awesome, but sorta cartoony to me. Not a fan of the redesigns actually, they don't look like the characters at all. Well, the cover dude looks like Trevor, but it's not even Trevor... :/
