They probably just look at DSP videos and came to a conclusion that we're all like him.

Hey Konami and all companies like you, WE. ARE. NOT. THIS. STUPID!

This is how you DON'T play MGS3.

Maybe someone else has been reading your fanfics and decided to include it in a game.
How subversive.

Pretty good. Some of them are much better than their renditions in the game.

"Abyssal Creature"

I suppose "Merman" sounded too cheesy...?

I wonder if they would taste good?  Some tartar sauce and chips or fries and boom there we go. Throw in a beer for good measure.

I understand that I'm late to the party here, but I just 100% the game.

If the gameplay were as convoluted/nonlinear as the plot, I might have vaguely enjoyed it—frankly I'm not even sure how many Lords of Shadow fans this game could please.

I believe Mirror of Fate was the easiest Castlevania game by far. Never did a game lasted so little from when I got it to when I did everything the game had to offer.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

From what I gathered, Simon never really faces Dracula in this game?

... goddamnit. :(

Not necessarily; he faces him but he just wasn't alone. In fact this is the first Castlevania game to have a Belmont tag-team match vs. Dracula!

Also, I don't believe Dracula was even killed at any point in this game. He just teleports away, and Alucard even says that's not how "a vampire is supposed to die," or something like that. Someone might say "but the castle crumbles at the end, thus signifying Dracula's death," but that's not the first time such a thing has happened. If you recall CVAdventure's ending, Dracula is "killed" and the castle crumbles, but Dracula in bat form is seen flying away. In fact Alucard's MoF ending can be seen as an homage to CVA's ending, now that I think about it.

He was 'defeated", what doesn't mean he was killed. :P

I would assume that it takes a conscious effort to keep the castle up and running. Once he's left it, he stops maintaining it, and it crumbles.

That´s my main issue with MoF, too.  :[

more news regarding MoF from Cox's twitter:

@CastlevaniaLOS Any chance of a Mirror of Fate O.S.T. as either CD or download?
@Ezekiel_Rage - Yes... a very good chance :-)

So, would anyone buy that?

A wasted opportunity, indeed. But to be honest, it served a purpose, which was to let the main story to be unfolded.
A final duel between Simon and Dracula would have been in the way of the "shocking revelation" which we all already knew about anyway, but that doesn't take away the fact that it was a very moving and heartfelt story about a villain with some love still inside him.
