I was thinking alongsides the lines that maybe sword users are more metroidvania orientated while whip weilders were more classic inclined. Ohh.. Good Gosh it feels good to be back!  :)

Yeah, I guess. But I'm a little bit of both! Though I am maybe 60/40 whip/sword. But as for the actual game styles I am 50/50!

I just like whipping over slashing. I'm very simple in this regard.
Well, you can whip some butt...but you can't slash some butt XD (well you can but, it's certainly not common)
As long as there's a shoryuken and some special moves (and some combo and cancel mechanics) I'll be happy.
GIVE ME MY OP SHORYUUUUKEN! -flies into the air with ma whip hand up. I guess it's because I look into game mechanics quite a bit as a quality assurance tester.

What does this suppose to mean?
"The illness feeds itself. Then you feed the illness. Then the illness feeds you."

I literally had this a second ago. And dang it it was the right choice I made!

100% Whip and as for game styles I like classic more. How much, I don't know percentage wise I just prefer them over MV's greatly.

You know what, I think I wish there was a third choice.....EVERYTHING! (guess that would be Morris style since there's martial arts, subweapons, whips, sword, knuckles (OH GOD YES THE KNUCKLES), etc)

I agree with Everything. But it seems they don't want us to have everything as of this point.

In that sense MV's ARE everything and the third choice. Classic is just good ole sub weapons. And that's how I like it.

"What does this suppose to mean?
"The illness feeds itself. Then you feed the illness. Then the illness feeds you.""
I literally had this a second ago. And dang it it was the right choice I made!
This just sparked something guys. I got a theory on this.

The whip of course represents classicvania in a way. But think about it...something from long ago...something where is represents a formula that we don't want changed. And all this illness stuff. In a way, maybe whip says that people aren't willing to change. That people hate change and don't want to move forward out of their fantasies of the old. They can't accept the new things. I mean, illness feeds you? Our delusions of old things being great....my delusions...of old things being great...OH GOD OnO

The sword represents another form of something classic too though...but still it's a different type of classic. People who liked SOTN and perhaps even the metroidvanias that followed after. Does it show change? Each metroidvania game had a lot of different things. There actually were whip only characters, but they weren't so donwn right simple. There were people who used many weapons, those who used glyphs...or even those of few weapons but plenty of magic instead....or classic characters who had many martial arts special moves like Richter. Or a team of 3 in reference to castlevania 3. It shows a willingness to modify and change while still keeping some of the old...but an idea of wanting to experience what CAN be done with a classic...what CAN be done with an old formula.

Metal Gear isn't everything the only good thing Konami did this last month was release Gradius V on PSN

Probably, but where's the fun in that?

Also, just got the following message.

Quote from: Totally Not IGA
The final quarter looms, Malphas the Mad. It is almost too late.

Voting period's almost over, perhaps?

EDIT: Got this one, too. I think there are subtle clues hidden in specific messages.
Quote from: Also Totally Not IGA
Of course you understand that this is not my final form. Two dimensions cannot hold me.

Haha, that's amusing. I just finished voting again (all whips of course) and was branded 'Ose the Outraged'.

I have been bestowed the title Dantalion the Dodgy of the Iron Flail Clan for my consistent voting on the whip.  :)

Are the clans randomly assigned after a certain number of votes, or do they "upgrade" after even more consistent voting?

Because I've switched to sword to remove clan status a couple of times and gone back to whip, and I've gotten Bullwhip and Cat O' Nine Tails interchangeably. My name, Malphas the Mad, has remained constant, though.

Apperently you will "fight other clans for treasure". I guess they are planning on making this some kind of MMORPG?
