eh, Lords of Shadow 1 was the best selling game in the franchise. Sure, there was some hubris in releasing the next two games back to back, and the big second one did fail pretty hard (arguably more because it came out at the tail end of a console generation and really should have been made for the next generation instead) but I wouldn't call it a total failure. At least they wisely ended it when it died.

Bearing in mind I hate the Lords of Shadow games and I do question why Konami had to call them "Castlevania". But players at least seemed to enjoy some of what Konami was laying down.

Lords of Shadow did it… Then it said “Have at you!!” and swung its combat cross a few more times, to make its stance known by all..

And Konami paid for this blunder of a reboot. In some cases, literally (cash).

I never realized Castlevania has it's own "Should Moon or Venus kill Beryl"

i'm really worrying about steam version since iX2, when it was still at its day one, just f******g despised everybody in every region for its questionable pricing. I really don't want the same history happen twice in a row... Damn

BUT if you're going to change so much that the source material is barely recognizable, what is even the point of calling it "Castlevania" anymore? There's a pretty big gap between "it doesn't have to be exactly like the games" versus "it's an adaptation so it can do anything". They should've just created an original IP instead, in my opinion.

I tried through the website above but it was taking too long and the quota ran out on me not even a quarter of the way through. Believe me, I'd really like to see this and the effort of what you guys have done. Is there a way to download the video?
Oh, sorry, totally forgot about the quota thing with Mega. Try this one.

Seems unnecessary. It's an adaptation. It's allowed to take liberties. You didn't like it. That's fine. But saying broad generalizations like, "everyone knows it sucked." It was it's own thing. It was watchable. Like it or don't but maybe tone down your vitriol, dude.
People are free to like whatever they want, and if my choice of words was rude, I apologize. I mean, I understand that adapting a story to another form of media has its quirks, and sometimes you have to change some things around, BUT if you're going to change so much that the source material is barely recognizable, what is even the point of calling it "Castlevania" anymore?

Unfortunately, no (while Alucard fights Dracula, Trevor is busy
(click to show/hide)
, and I don't think there's enough footage to edit it so it would work), but I wholeheartedly agree! CV3 is supposed to be the story of Trevor Belmont first and foremost, and Alucard stealing Trevor's thunder felt strange, if not outrageous.

Also agreed with the rest. With seasons 3 & 4 they were simply milking it after the success of the first two seasons (and even Ellis himself said in one of the interviews how he "had no clue what to do next"). I personally liked the addition of Hector and Isaac's characters into the canon and their chemistry in CoD (and I like CoD as a game a lot), but seeing what have they done to them in the show was sickening, to say the least. Complete butchering of their characters.

Have you also fixed the sections so that Trevor Belmont is the one to actually kill Dracula and not Alucard? That felt like a cop out to me as historically (story/gamewise) Trevor was the one who delivered the fatal blow with the help of the others. Warren Ellis should've realized that this is CV3 and not SotN.

I also felt that the third and fourth seasons were completely unnecessary. And -let's be honest- a horrid mess of armature writing. It sounded like they were doing the CoD game and took it into a completely different direction. They made Hector look bad and be presented as a sexual pushover/slave. It should've been left out completely as the game itself was a shoehorned entry into the series and really didn't add anything overall to CV 3. Also, why would Dracula need to rely on Devil forge masters when he alone has the power to overrun the whole of the Earth with his monster army? It just makes no sense to me.
