Not much regrettably. Even before COVID was happening things here were still minimal.

Castlevania season 3 came out, discussions were had whether it sucks or not and why, and after those died out so did the overall activity on forums, sadly. That's all I really remember, honestly.

A bit of discussion of Curse of the Moon 2. Some acknowledgement of Wallachia and Carpathian Night. A few nods towards some fan games. Not much else. What we need is a new game in the main series or Bloodstained to really get the place going, and the Curse of the Moon games don't seem to be enough. It would be better if we had multiple games to discuss but...

Well, maybe forums just aren't as popular as they used to be.

Well, from what I've seen forums are mostly abandoned in favour of reddit and similiar comunities. And after all they thrive on passion of fandoms, and we here are fans of a seemingly dead franchise and we just keep getting blueballed by Kuntnami.

I still think forums are the perfect form of communication. Reddit and especially social media are sloppy and keen on throwing information at you that you never wanted put in your head.

It's just a shame nobody else feels that way, lol. It's a dinosaur, but not all things outdated are necessarily obsolete.

And yeah, it doesn't help that this particular board deals with a franchise whose owner sees fit to do nothing about. Yay.

Social media is always changing. Things such reddit and the like might be around for some time but won't last too long. I think in that regard chat forums have a longer lifespan. But it all depends on the people when you really get down to it.

I'll be with message-board forums 'til the end, but... I don't often find reasons to post.

Find reasons. Always post. Even if it's to say your crotch needs to be aired out. I do!

Nada, I just collected games, and in 2021 still do. 2020 was mostly a peaceful year at yon forum, hopefully 2021 is just as dull and boring when it comes to that here. Even some retrogame forums have quieted down, while some, like Atari Age, keep marching on, busy as a bee (since retro games are still hot, driving prices up on those old games, *grumble grumble*).

So not a lot was going on. Has social media drained the traffic in general? I escaped back to BBS from social media.  :-[

Sadly, not much to add to what people said before. There was not much of anything, chiefly because Konami keeps cock-blocking us effectively since 2009. We're all just nostalgic people trying to keep a dead franchise alive in our own way.
