Will you include illustrations?

I could come up with an original character (or an original redesign of an existing character) and commission a cheap drawing of them. I do that sort of stuff from time to time.

Thing is, a single game wont do much.
Mega Man 11 certainly didn't reinvigorate Mega man forums.

Forums like this are from an age when we got regular game content.

Between 1986 when the franchise started, and 2010 when Lords of Shadow came out, there was a new Castlevania game every single year

Same goes for Mega Man, which was even more prolific, peaking at 6 (read SIX) games coming out in 2003 and 2004 each

There's a reason forums like these were so chatty and active, it's because there was a TON to talk about, with a constant supply of fresh meat. A big release, like Lords of Shadow, will provide big discussion, especially since it was divisive and controversial, but once it's passed on, so does conversation.

You need that constant supply to get constant conversation, IMO.

I know how you feel, Vlad. Well, we're almost certain to get a boost of activity when the Netflix Rondo anime comes out, though I think it would require another CV game to really get this forum back up with as much activity as it used to have back in the glory days...

Does FB hotlinking work? I dunno, but I got to play these beauts last weekend and aim to do so again tomorrow.

I'd be super down for playing The Arcade if anybody ever gets it.

I joined these forums only a few years ago, long after Konami abandoned the series, but the reason I started posting here to begin with is because I use to frequent this site a lot as a kid. The turning point for me as a Castlevania fan was when I finally tried Super Castlevania IV for the first time. I loved that game so much I wanted to delve deep into the rest of the series, and this website was the best source of information. I wouldn't post here but I would occasionally lurk, and I do remember seeing how active the community was back in those days. I also remember how frequent page updates were, as new Castlevania games were coming out consistently. This site still remains my favorite source of information on the series, but like everyone has mentioned here, this place was so active because there was so much to look forward to and talk about back in those days.

The same thing happened to one of my other favorite fan sites, Shining Force Central. It was a thriving, active, website with a huge forum community, but pretty much everything went straight downhill as soon as Camelot stopped working with Sega and the Shining series morphed into something completely unrecognizable to the fans of the series. I consider Shining Force II to be my favorite game ever, so I frequented that community very often, and I have a lot of good memories of those times, but Shining Force as I knew it is long dead. I actually tried the demo for Shining Resonance on the Switch and all it did was remind me of how the Shining name has been repurposed to sell games that have zero relation in any way to the classic Shining games.

There's not much to discuss about Castlevania proper other than yet another season of the series. Konami isn't doing much to keep the series relevant these days, which is why you're seeing this influx of indie games that scratch a similar itch like COTM for the classic titles and too many exploration platformers to count.
Off Topic / I'm actually looking forward to this.

We only had Bloodstained, the Netflix show, and mobile games to keep the deeper vania community active here, so when a sequel to Bloodstained is a way's away, and the mobile vania front appears to be double dead, there's not much to talk about. We'll probably see the Richter Netflix arc before anything else, and we don't got much to go on with that either.

I honestly prefer museums over the whole social media mess that is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Museums like this have a refinement of sorts while the aforementioned social media sites are now a breeding ground of all that human garbage that's been making the rounds lately. Here, things are a lot more controlled and that is a good thing. No real luck with that on other media platforms, and if it is they are not doing a good enough job of it.

Forums are a relic of the earl 2000's internet. I remember when this place was really something to see. I'm talking dozens of posts a day. It's been a long dwindle, but people just prefer Facebook groups, reddit, and twitter these days. This place is almost like a museum.
