Why does it have to be 2am when the live stream starts in my country....
I might catch the latter third, maybe that's the point where they'll do the announcement for a KS.
I hope they put time stamps on the recorded version so that I can just pick and choose what to watch. I am particularly interested in the IGA interviews.

Gebel.
I found it to be a weird name.... Did a google search and came up with this:
https://www.houseofnames.com/gebel-family-crest
So it's a surname.

Fun fact: googling Gabel Family Crest shows a crest with a moon on it...

Perhaps for a vampire? ;)

Humm, got a question. After 41 pages of this thread has no-one thought about how this is not a Castlevania game, yet it's being discussed in the General CV section rather then in Gaming 101? Just thought I'd throw this in there  :-\

Well, I guess it's because the original post by Igavania was posted here

Well, it might not be officially named Castlevania, but it will be Castlevania in our hearts.

What worries me with all those similarities is that Konami decides to take action against IGA's game.

There have been dozens of Castlevania clones though, and Konami will probably continue to invest their focus in Lords of Shadow anyway.

This is assuming they want to keep making games, and it seems to be a resounding "no" sans Metal Gear.

They want to completely drop out of the console market, and IGA said Konami's continuing focus on casual software is what led him to quit the company.


Also, inside man appeared on /v/ again, dropped some new tidbits of info:
Quote
"There may be plans for "social" elements and "freemium" content. Hopefully tomorrow shows otherwise."

"- 2.5D
- Story takes place during Industrial Revolution, church worried that demons will invade if science prevails
- NotShanoa, NotJonathan and NotAlucard are the characters I saw."

"Yamane is in. So is the main programmer from the GBA/DS games. I believe he directed Harmony of Despair."

"Miriam's hair is dark brown. Shoulder length. Don't recognize the artist, but reminded me of OoE. Miriam is the protagonist."

"From what I've seen, it looks like OoE in 2.5D."

"From what I was told, drops are used for crafting skills and items. Seemed like Aria/Dawn with a middleman step."

"Okay, I'm done for the night. Last bit of info is that Fangamer is doing the merch."

anyone find it ironically foreshadowing that Gabriel in LoS became Dracula, as so did IGA once donning a Julius-like appearance now dracula-like?
coincidence? I think not... aliens

Lol, I got up early too, don't feel bad.  I'm drawing, waiting in my daughter to wake up so we can start our morning routine.  :P

As for the new tidbit info and thank you OSM by the way for it:

I will reserve judgement on it being 2.5D until I see it.  I normally don't mind it and DxC looked good, considering it was a PSP game.  I just hope it looks better than MN9 does (unless that took a turn for the better).  Obviously not expecting NSMB levels but still.

Everything else sounded find until we got to Freemium.  Depends on the level.  Like I can stand MKX levels, where the goal/items can be achieved with (arguably a little unfair extra levels of) grinding.  Or it's extra content that isn't necessary.   I just don't like It when it's 'pure freemium' I guess: free 'game' with like one stage and character and the rest of the game has to be nicked and dimed out.  I really hope it isn't the latter.  :-\
