My brother played it, said it was pretty fun. Don't think I'll try it though.

To be honest, I'd love to see an another adventure game in Nosgoth but it should leave the Legacy of Kain alone. Defiance ended perfectly.

Something like Dead Sun would be cool but it shouldn't be a Legacy of Kain game. Maybe Legends of Nosgoth or something.
>>
>>323435027
both kain and raziel are still alive, this alone could be enough for a new lok game

I think the Legacy of these games (pun intended) should be left alone.

Don't make a sequel, make a spiritual successor.

LoK Was a great series that ended with a cliffhanger, but still ended well. It went out on a high note. A sequel could just tarnish the franchise.

That's the point I'm trying to make, I don't think they should try to make another LoK or SR game. Defiance had a strong ending. I think trying to shoehorn in another plot on top in the form of a direct sequel will just fuck it all up.

Nosgoth has a massive history, a prequel would be fantastic. Have the setting during the Hylden and Ancient Vampire war for example.
>>
>>323435223

No

Fuck that

Raziel's character arc is complete

I hate when fucking nostalgiafags keep begging for more of the same shit. It only ends up ruining characters that had perfectly good endings

People should know when enough is enough

>>
Hopefully not. They'll just ruin the story.

>>323436471
This anon gets it. Bringing back Raziel would just cheapen his sacrifice. Raziel got his redemption and now that he cured Kain of Nepractor's madness Kain can now find his own.

>>323436958
I really disliked Kain's facial structure in Defiance.

It was so much better in SR2
>>
>>323436875
Yeah even if Kain is alive and can still run around and do shit, I think it'd be best just to leave him alone as well. He's become a true Balance Guardian now and actually feels hopeful for the future >>323436958 here. Let Defiance stand as the end of his legacy.

But if you want another game set in Nosgoth, let it be elsewhere with other characters.
>>
>>323435773
It's not even that much of a cliffhanger, just that it had some unresolved conflicts with the Hyldan. Kain and all of Nosgoth are finally free of their chains in a fresh timeline that is no longer under the influence of Moebius and the EG, opening up the chance for redemption. Of course, it would've been cool if that Dark Prophecy game came out and finally provide total closure for the Legacy of Kain but I think the theme of the entire franchise has been addressed excellently with the end of Defiance.

Nice thread, literally just installed all of the games today (minus the very first one) after having them on Steam for months.

No once again it cheapens raziel's sacrifice and then makes the game feel like it isn't serious thus ruining the tone of the franchise

Pure fucking cancer. What LoK should be about is exploration and puzzle solving with light combat. Souls is just slow as shit gameplay with no puzzle solving elements
>>

KAIN REFUSED THE SACRIFICE
>>
>>323435051
It doesn't help that the Nosgoth devs are now focusing on their smash-hit Rocket League while basically saying "Nosgoth is still worth playing though"
>>
Hey guys, I remember playing all the LoK games when I was a teen. I'm a bit confused about the chronology.
1. Blood Omen
2. Soul Reaver
3. Soul Reaver 2
4. Defiance
??? Blood Omen 2

So when does BO2 take place? The Hylden are revealed in it, and they play a major part in Defiance, so I assume it's before Defiance, but Kain is young in it, so what the fuck happened there
>>
>Tfw have only played Defiance for PS2 and tried playing Blood Omen on my PSP but ran into a constant bug where certain areas of the screen would be big black squares.

Eventually I'll get around to playing the whole series, wish I was able to enjoy it fully but I grew up and still am a poorfag. Posting this from a shitty ass metropcs smartphone.

The LoK series always felt a little like the Legend of Zelda series in terms of balancing exploration, puzzle solving, and combat.

That said, smooth and reactive combat like Bloodborne would be great, but it should not sacrifice exploration or puzzle solving.
>>
>>323438235
its about 1000 years after BO1 in a sort of alternate timeline created by events in SR2
>>
>>323438235
BO2 takes place after BO1 chronologically. SR1 and SR2 are well after Kain takes over Nosgoth.

The Hylden being revealed in BO2 was needed to show that Raziel's refusal to die at the end of SR2 had unintended consequences.

I never said anything about sacraficing exploration or puzzels. IF new game happens it will be probably very similar to arkham series combat wise.
>>
>>323438235
You know the ending of SR2 where a paradox happens and Kain suddenly gets a migraine of new memories? BO2 is the memories that Kain gained. It's basically what happens post-BO in the new timeline that SR2's paradox caused.

No BB is the same speed just with faster dodges. It's the same regurgitated garbage from keeps trying to shove down our throats almost every year instead of making something unique.
No LoK should never EVER play like a soulslike game and fuck you and people like you for wanting every game to play like them.

This. I love LoK but the ending was perfect. It is enough and it needs no remake nor sequels for either character even though you could say the finale was open... that was a good thing in this case, consider the genre and the world of Nosgoth and Kain himself, do people really want him to see his destiny fulfilled and Nosgoth safe and Kain making Raziel and his brethren proper pillar guardians instead of monsters? why?

I think hope is enough in this case. It´s Pyrrhic and is uncertain and that´s why it is memorable.

Besides Nosgoth was shit and Dead sun looked cancerous... there is no way that continuing would benefit the saga in any way.
Sure, seeing a bigger Nosgoth could be nice but it´s not worth it.

No you fuck off Soulz baby that DMC gameplay style was fucking Defiance and I am saying despite how fucking garbage it was I would take that any day over souls shit.
LoK should play like a LoZ title like it did with BO, SR and SR2
>>
>>323439289
Have you played the game at all? You have two attack buttons,a telekinesis that works different for both characters, environmental kills, lock on, juggling, special attacks, air combos, air to ground and vice versa attacks, you have dodging and a special attack bar along with 4 different sword imbuements.

Defiance was like Devil May Cry lite and it worked.

I only ever played Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. Beat it on Dreamcast, the superior version.

>>323436156
This image is wrong, Pillars of Nosgoth was the development title for Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, the PC version of the game still has files named Pillars of Nosgoth.

Shifter and Soul Reaver are the same game

PS1 Soulreaver is the same game as the PS2 Soulreaver the project simply moved over to the new platform

Chakan 2 became Blood Omen 2

Nosgoth was mindless fun for a while, but it ended up being shit. Vampires have an insanely higher chance of winning due to all the ridiculous mechanics they have. The flying ones are even more annoying since they're silent in flight. The only remotely useful human is the one with the giant shield.

Masterpiece, will forever be remembered as one of the best story telling games ever made.

Horrible game, shit story, linear gameplay, even more unfinished than the first game.

Another rehashed game, contrived plot barely fits into any of the other games plot, complete mess of a game both story and mechanically.

Before Dead Sun, there was Dark Prophecy. They had even started working on it immediately after Defiance before the whole project was shut down.

Pics under the article and pic related.

>http://thelostworlds.net/TDP/index.html

There was going to be Malek's Bastion, the Dark Eden (Kain was most likely supposed to travel back in time to help his young self), a Hylden fortress and a Sarafan building with repurposed Ancient Vampires' motifs and statues.
>>
>>323449401

They did say last year that the franchise had a 50/50 chance of coming back during this generation so maybe they are thinking on going this route.

While it would be nice to go back to Nosgoth i still think this is not actually a good idea.
Some things are better left alone... specially at a point where they are still not ruined.
