Abraham Van Helsing is an absolute badass in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
When everyone else just sort of stands around wondering why all these crazy things keep happening, like boats turning up in port with the entire crew murdered and local folk turning into blood sucking freaks, Van Helsing doesn't doubt. He just takes care of business like the swarthy, good humored Dutchman that he is. He never gets around to casting spells, slinging around guns and beating the crap out of monsters while hanging out with a ghost woman named Katarina in the book, but in fairness, he's older in Dracula
than he is in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2
, Neocore's action RPG sequel to the 2012 cult hit. I suppose all adventurers go through a mass monster killin' and ghost chillin' period in their youth.
Joystiq Streams is rocking Van Helsing 2
on Twitch.tv/Joystiq and right here on Joystiq.com starting at 4PM EST. Orsolya Toth, Neocore's community manager, will guide us inexperienced vampire slayers through the basics. We'll also be giving away free Steam keys for both Van Helsing 2
and the original The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing
during the stream, because monster hunters love company.
