General Castlevania Discussion / Re: [Netflixvania] Castlevania X: The Demon Castle Legend Cut

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?

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.

Hey everyone! Here's something my boy GP Belmondo was working on (and I was helping him with lots of stuff).

As you might know, Netflixvania sucked as an adaptation of Castlevanaia 3 and left a lot to be desired. "Thanks" to Warren Ellis and his inflated ego preventing him from doing proper research of the source material and respecting the property, the opportunity of making a good and faithful adaptation went right down into the toilet. It pissed us off how at the same time it has so much wasted potential with talented animators and voice actors on board, and with some scenes being actually good if presented right. But what pissed us off even more, is how the majority was praising it like the second coming of Christ, while in reality it's just another terrible Netflix adaptation from the pile, and it didn't deserve the praise it was getting.

This cut is an attempt at making something worthy of a Castlevania title out of the animated series, taking the direction of the old "animated movie trilogy" format - the end result is a 4 hour film divided into 3 chapters. This cut is meant to be considered as a critique towards the animated series, a big "let me show you how it's done".

Swearing, vulgarity, pointless banter, cringy humour, unneeded excessive violence, unfitting characters, "GoT with vampires" and such have been cut, as these have no place or don't fit the tone of Castlevania. Most of the scenes are re-edited to make the flow feel more adventurous, dynamic and make sense in general. There are some bloopers, but we had to work with what we have.

Considering Nigoro based the gameplay of La-Mulana on the Maze of Galious, and the fact that the Maze is in the "MSX" freeware version, this really checks out. I just hope they get the boss names correct and not go with the names given in the passwords.

Bony Dragon (aka the boss that also appears in La-Mulana's secret area in a set of pajamas made of skin), often mistaken as "YOMAR"
Sea Anemone, often mistaken as "ELOHIM"
Illusive Dragon, often mistaken as "HAHAKLA"
Jumbo Slime, often mistaken as "BARECHET"
Donra, often mistaken as "HEOTYMEO"
Arian, often mistaken as "LEPHA"
Big Lips (likely to be renamed as Hot Lips as an homage to Parodius), often mistaken as "NAWABRA"
Monster, often mistaken as "ASCHER"
King Dragon, often mistaken as "XYWOLEH"
and finally Galious himself, often mistaken as "Hamalech"

They probably couldn't have gotten a better employee than the La Mulana guy. Very very good choice, I'll be keeping an eye on this.

If Indiana Jones had kids those two would be it (not counting Crystal Skull here). The game does look interesting and the music they used in the video is catchy. I hope this is better treated then the remake of Act Razer.

I could barely get through the video. I just wanted the characters to shut the fuck up. I hate their anime shrieks.

if it is, it got canned because of how aesthetically displeasing it looks
Finally someone speaking facts

Maze of Gallious is pretty decent for the era. Has that proto-Metroidvania vibe Konami was chasing at the time. It's rough in places but still worth checking out.
