Now with mirror of fate's release which "Gaiden series" do you feel fits Cvania better

Personally I think 64/LOD are one of the most awesome Cvania games in that they were actually among the creepiest Cvania games I have ever played. LOS while cool is not nearly as good imo

The 64 games were terrible, any hardly playable nowadays with such better gaming options.

Really the only reasons people don't like the LoS series is due to hate (and CV purists, but those same people will spout that SotN was the best game in the series...contradiction much?)

The gameplay is great (much improved and a refreshing experience from the metroidvania style of recent years) and the soundtrack and VA is ASTOUNDING. Sure the story could have been a bit better, but most people dont like it because its so different from the main series (because different=bad apparently).

In reality the story isn't the best ever, but its certainly strong enough to care about, and well-written enough for you to not lose interest. Seeing as some of the main CV entries have minimal story (party being that older platforming games didnt have much anyway) this is more of a point of hate for nay-sayers.

Overall its a strong game with a new and different take on the series that offers a fun experience. The 64 games were ok back when they released (they werent anything to rave about, and the second was just awful IMO) but as of today's gaming standards have aged horribly.

Considering that the LoS series provides characters that can actually be compelling, I think it's a no-brainer that they are more in spirit with the main series.

64 games at least had old music, for what it was worth.

CV64 - because it was supposed to be a CV game from start to finish.

I can't stand people who call fans of SotN and its like games hypocrites. SotN was never anything else. It was always supposed to be the next step of the series. LoS seems to be the same, except:

A. They seem intent on abandoning anything other than the LoS model, with three LoS games made - including one designed in the SotN model, which tells me that they're trying to phase it out because LoS was such an uproarious success.
B. LoS became a CV game after development began. It's not a CV game because they took their GoW clone and used a well-known IP to push it.
