If Iga's new game turns out to be a lot like Castlevania.  Will it be considered a Castlevania game as for as this board is concerned,  and treated as all others are?  Even though technically it wouldn't be.

I will treat it as a Castlevania-like game and would probably get a post on this forum.
It will never get upgraded to official Castlevania status since the original IP is still with Konami and we have heard that Konami might still make some games under that IP.

General games that are not Castlevania would get discussed in the games subforum "Hardcore Gaming 101".
This would include Metroidvania titles (such as Shantae: Risky's Revenge, Soul of Darkness, etc.).

If Iga starts making those games, that subforum will start to gather more attention, methinks.

It's interesting...looks a bit too close to I-gag-ination though... :-S

"無知が" or "Muchiga".

Muchi = Whip
Iga = Hurr Durr

IGA seems to like whips (xD). And it has a nice pun when read as an english speaker. Much Iga.

YES I used the translator leavemealone...

I must say though that "Iga Stole my Bike" is extremelly appealing to me.

Order of Ecclesia is the pinnacle of the series regarding bosses. I don't remember any other game with so many enjoyable bosses. It's simply the best on the series in this regard. Reason why I love it (other reason being the combat system, more streamlined and relevant than SOTN).

This. OOE owned the rest of the games with boss fights. Although I likes DOS' bosses (particularly death) and I thought POR's DracDeath was probably the best final boss fight (or close to) OOE really broke the mould with bosses, inclusive of Dracula. Plus it gives the option of a supertough setting, which is great fun.

And COTM was supposedly hard because of it's design. The way the characters control is more like the older games, even though the control is a bit better.

Honestly I thought the only thing COTM was missing was a backdash, the controls felt okay aside from this.

When I play the first Castlevanias (before Legends comes to light), I supose that the superhuman powers that the Belmonts has were form the Belmont Chromosomes (as is implied in the CVIII manual or box, I don´t remember). Then, when I played and finished Legends, and I read that Sonia have a baby with Alucard, I learned that "maybe" is because of that the superhuman power of the Belmont, from that part of the history... I accepted, but I don´t like it too much.

The issue with the Sonia/ Alucard affair is that the VK doesn't work that way, it can't be used by a tainted soul/ blood. If Alucard's blood got into the Belmont's lineage then the direct bloodline would be contaminated. I think CV III as the first showdown with Dracula fits better as well. Which is not to say Sonia shouldn't reappear in the old canon, in a later game. One could say that Legends and the non-canon games simply fit into an alternate timeline, problem solved.

You know it's not at all impossible for Legends to happen. Alucard and Sonia were lovers, however Alucard (in the SotN story) was very firm on his belief that he did not want his cursed bloodline to continue. Just because to people are lovers doesn't automatically mean sex. If Legends were to remain then the only thing that would require tweaking is the story. And it wouldn't be that hard either. For instance; Sonia and Alucard were lovers but did not have sexual relations with each other based on Alucards personal feelings regarding his bloodline. After he enters his eternal sleep and Sonia kills Dracula she has a child with someone else. Another way to do this would be for Sonia to have love relations with someone else. He is then killed by Dracula's minions and soon after Sonia meets up with Alucard. Him helping her overcome her grief at the loss of her former lover and eventually the two become close. in both these story tweaks Trevor remains fully human and we still have the Sonia/Alucard relationship intact.

The translator is a troll.
For those who are interested, what you wrote (the first 2 characters) actually means "Ignorance"

This is the character for whip = 鞭 (muchi)
Then just add in IGA. hehehe.
