Killing the soul of a franchise to "broaden the fanbase" is wrong.

It means "we don't care about the established fanbase that made our franchise possible, we want to disregard you and appeal to casuals instead".

Such an action is an insult and it would be better for the franchise to die than for it to be successful and create a terrible precedent.

If disregarding the old fans becomes successful what makes you think they will care about their new fans?

It must be severed before the cancer can grow.


they dont care about new or old fans they care about money, it has always been like that and they will do anything to get as much as possible.


That is exactly why this must fail.

The only way to make them care about their fans is if their fans take action to make them fail when they don't.

If you have love the franchise and respect yourself you will not support them when they disregard you.


if their fans take action and dont buy the game the series will die completely.


If they don't care about their fans, then the franchise might as well be dead to their fans anyway.

God, there's so many petty CV fans in this thread. "Wahh, Konami changed CV yet again, to something I hate. I hope this series crashes and burns".

Such pettiness in here, makes me sick to be a fan of the same series you guys are.

Fun fact: OoSubaruoO just insulted petty fans in an extremely petty way, perhaps, more petty than anything said in this thread so far.

Well, not so much "fun fact" as "Something that happens eight times a day".

I just hope Konami goes back to making games on their own again. Seems to me right now the only game they're making by themselves is Metal Gear Solid.

*laughs at thread*

I grew up with the Classicvania games, I've played through all of the Metroidvania titles and I even enjoy these LoS games. I've enjoyed everything Castlevania has brought *cough*excepthauntedcastle*cough* and I'll continue to enjoy future installments of this series, so regardless of what direction they choose to go, unless they outright end the franchise completely, I win.


Have fun everyone!

It makes me sad to know that Lords of Shadow is the highest-selling title in the 20 year history of my favorite franchise, Castlevania. It took one game to destroy everything I love about the series, restoring it with some typical fantasy tropes, reusing the names of characters, and turning it into yet another God of War clone.

Worse yet, my favorite part of the series, that wonderful, blissful soundtrack, was replaced by a Hollywood movie score. This is not Castlevania, and I will never accept it as such no matter how much Konami tries to cram it down our throats. Harmony of Despair was the last good thing they did for the series, and it makes me sad we may never get to see or play the talents of IGA, Yamane, or Kojima ever again. As a fan of the series since the very first game, I would even welcome the older talents or KCEK - responsible for Castlevania 64, Legacy of Darkness, and most of all, Circle of the Moon - to take over the series. I don't want this "reboot" and I never asked for it.

I asked for a series with continuing platforming quality, not QTEs. Those who said it got stale or was too Japanese never played Order of Ecclesia, a game noted for its art style and challenge. Not only that, but I believe OoE was setting the stage for a new turning point in the series. Why Konami never ran with it I will never understand.


Indeed. The only problem I have with it selling poorly is that they might stop it all together....but if it is getting this bad, it is better to let the series die with dignity.

I hope your mom sells poorly.

Stupid, lame jokes aside, godstriker8 is right, if MoF sells poorly, they
won't go back to the original series, they will cancel the series entirely.
Look at dead space for example, they add co-op and take away a lot of the horror.
Everyone hopes it will sell poorly so they will go back to the original series.
Look what happens, the dead space series gets canned because of poor sales.
People who think game franchises will go back to their original form because of poor
sales are complete idiots.


Odd.

"Update: EA has told GameSpot the VideoGamer report is "patently false." "While we have not released sales data for Dead Space 3, we are proud of the game and it continues to be an important IP to EA," added the publisher"

I'd rather have a gothic Metroid clone than Gothic/Heavy Fantasy GoW clone. Metroid is a better game than GoW so it's a better influence/homage/rip off whatever.

The entire post was geared toward insulting people. And yes, just because he didn't point at someone and say "you're petty", or "you're my best cat", doesn't mean that the post did not contain insults.
