See, was that so hard?

And I'm not Crisis, unless you were just quoting me and giving a shout-out to him. Which makes no sense. o_O

Edit: Then you cut out your actually halfway-decent explanation. Why shoot yourself in the foot?

I simplified it. Lol
I did shout out to him because i noticed his post and wanted to add it to what I was saying ..Lol

My main point was...

People flipping out that mercurysteam is involved yet we haven't even seen the game yet is childish. wait and see before you judge so blindly.

Wow I turn around and Whoa 9 pages?
As long as you guys keep it civil, it should be no problem.

BTW, wasn't "The DraculaX Chronicles" a 3D sidescroller?  I gather that it will be like that, only with some more exploration.
I don't see the problem.  Then again, that's only my assumption of what it might be like.  We will see when E3 rolls about, I suppose.

Yeah it will probably be like that maybe with improved combat and movement.

It's worth noting people that wayforward has been working with key konami franchises, maybe they will be developing this?

How long have you posted here? Don't you know the trend by now? New game comes out = pissing and moaning.

Jorge, I thought DXC constituted 2.5D gameplay with 3D cutscenes.

I think he just means the characters and environments are 3d polygons.
It's a 3d game but in a sidescrolling world...

2.5d is the correct term for it though.

That's the plan, nothing you can do but sit back and watch until we get screens or footage.

Then we'll debate and argue like it's 2009 all over again baby, woooooooo!

Well there have been no specifics other than "3D" (which implies that it's a textures and polygons games) game with Metroidvania elements (meaning mapping).
Soooooo I'm thinking it'll look like Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl's Adventure Mode, or The DraculaX Chronicles.
Or like Kirby & the Crystal Shards.
Or like Lost in Shadow.

I'm totally fine with this.

If Wayforward did the game like they did Bloodrayne: Betrayal, then I'd be completely onboard. (especially if Jake Kaufman was doing the music)

Not very long, I came here around the time when LoS was revealed to be a Castlevania game.

2D Castlevania, we knew thee well. May you rest in peace.
Ha-ha-ha...
So much delicious rage and butthurt (from both sides). Let's add some fuel, shall we?

I donno, dude. I thought someone got one of their children to get the twist that Belmont = Dracula. It's so childish of a plot idea, and seems like something fitting for fan fiction. But perhaps it's because two of the writers do comic books, and maybe awful plots is a norm there.
Not more childish, than Dracula being reincarnated as some japanese dude...and his castle being sealed into solar eclipse by shinto priests...

CastleDan, you're coming off as an obnoxious little kid "nyah nyah cox games are better than your dumb iga games nyah nyah"
You're coming as obnoxious LOS-hater, who lashes on anyone who dare to vehemently protect something that you don't agree with. As an always.

OK, now on the topic itself: while I am not 3DS owner, I will eagerly wait what this game will have in store. And, if rumors are true, we finally will have a semblance of the coherent storytelling in the series, art that IGA couldn't decently master through all his years of being series producer.

I still dont understand how people DONT see the Castlevania in LoS. They are just blinded by their hatred of it.

on Cox lying: well, to be fair, he said there would be no QTE's, and there were.

also, the trailers used clever editing to make it seem like we would fight Dracula at the end. And instead, it turned out to be Satan, and we instead had the Belmont BECOME Dracula.


I'm sure that's what bothers more people, and what causes most of the fan rage. That the Belmonts were linked to the Draculas.

(even though Legends did it first)

personally, I can totally see the SC IV in LoS. The atmosphere in certain sections is definitely SC IV ish.

people also complain about the daytime areas, even though Daytime stages are nothing new to castlevania.

I just dont get it. people are entitled to their opinions, however bad taste they may be to me, but there is absolutely no reason to start a war in this topic. AT ALL. We know next to nothing about the game, and already we are complaining about who's making it. Which by the way, we dont know either. Cox is Konami, not MS. Granted it wouldnt surprise me if it was MS, and they seem most likely here, we still dont quite know that. Especially for the 3DS game here. Wayforward is definitely a valid guess.

also, another 2D 3DS game: Mighty Switchforce.

Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

Thanks for the support, there's definitely a bias with some posters. They are fine with some IGA stupidity but not with some David Cox stupidity.
I already said i really liked Aria of sorrow for the most part but I agree with all the points you made.

All I was asking is for people to be fair about this, in the past few years castlevania in general has been getting more and more ridiculous. At least with this re-imagining we can get back to some basics .
