Hi i have been coming to this forum for over a Decade now, i have decided to post something, kindly someone who can do it

my topic is for the Game Discussion Section, Thank you

Title: BloodSteined 5 years Still no release? how many years it took Developing SOTN ?

post:
First lets start by watching 2 minutes Gameplay from the masterpiece to refresh your Memory

3 DS Games were the best on the portable Following SOTN

i have posted this on the Official Game Forum at Steam but wanted more people to see the world we live in and the irony of how a game that is 2 Decades old still cant be followed with a true Graphical upgraded 2D engine, they went lower with DS Sequels and that was it.

i don't know where to begin...as a fan of SOTN and the SNES Games, having played every single release from NES+SNES, N64 to The Game Boy Advance to the NDS Trilogy i am very disappointed on their overall Art, Visual direction for igarashi's new game

Aria of Sorrow and Down of Sorrow perfected everything that was great about Symphony of the Night, it had Terrible downgrade to Visuals but the spirit of the Gameplay and animations were all there

ill go case by case to prove that you will fail with your new game

first lets clear some facts out of the way and ill be very transparent:
we live in an Age where we can get any game for free, having said that, i still own an Original Copy of every Igavania Style made by him

My favorite one is the "SEGA Saturn version" of SOTN it felt like more of an expansion of a great game (Igarashi hates this port because its inferior to the original)

well lets see, the Japanese voice acting was phenomenal and gave life to the 2d sprites had a soul compared to the English Dub, whoever was doing the Japanese dub was faithful to his job, the extra character add on was great callback to Dracula - X

after so many years, i have modded my PS Vita and Switch and Wii U, i have a copy of SOTN on Probably every device that has a screen on it from smartphones or an android Alarm Clock...to a Car Dashboard

i really do not understand how a company that made a masterpiece like SOTN just refuses to port it to to every Game console to expose it more.

it was Great to own it on xbox live arcade, Harmony of Despair was a great surprise too and such a disappointment you didn't make a new game with that Engine......

now that i have cleared myself and established that i already purchased several legit copies of SOTN on PSN, PSP, Xbox,PS4, Satrurn

i was very angry that looking at Nintendo Switch and it becoming a shovel ware of a port Machine.....it still doesn't have SOTN so with little fondling and modding the console managed to play Dracula x from PC engine and SOTN, finished both again on the console that Konami still refuse to support with the games that fans want (yes i can play it On PC or PS4 but i love to play that game anywhere anytime any place on every console i could

Mega man has managed to spread its Collection on every console...not my style of game, but i respect Capcom for preserving the entire Franchise for Decades to come)

its been 2 decades, me and most fans still regard SOTN the best the series had to offer we like to be able to play it for years to come.

so back to BloodSteined, i am very confused....

SOTN how many developers back then 8?

i want you to remember this line from Wikipedia: "Their primary motivation for the abrupt design change was the sight of dozens of Castlevania games in bargain bins of Japanese video game stores"

you have struck Gold when you made SOTN style you Struck Gold again with The DS sequels.
look at Forgotten ANNE(not an Igavania gener but the Style it has) and Dead Cells, look at Timespinner, if you had gone the Style of Forgotten Anne or tasked "Arc System Works" to lend their Unreal Engine 4 Guilty Gear style Engine, you could have preserved SOTN for the new Generation intact if you really wanted to go 3d and keep its spirit

Since SOTN for 2 decades we have not received a true successor that surpasses its 2d Style or remaster it or remakes, we recently Got a Butchered port from the PSP version with Wrong SFX sounds attached to the Wrong Enimies and a much worse Dub then the Original...)

>>>>you had a great character artist<<<<

Timespinner on Vita & PS4/PC is as close as it gets to Having that SOTN Nostalgia, no other game has done it yet

in my mind a perfect Successor would have been something done with "Game Maker" Engine that had visual styles of Dead Cells with the Gameplay of Bloodsteined

if you were still in charge of "castlevania" doing a successor in the style of "Forgotten Anne would" have been the best Direction regardless of whatever Resources you needed you would have Done justice to your Legacy

if you had gone 2d, with the funding and 5 years your Team have you could have finished the game by now even if yo didn't have assets......you could have hired people from Deviant Art to give yo the best 2d assets faithful to SOTN

New Indie Developers are still trying to capture your Magic and still fail

why is it so hard to redo what you achieved on PlayStation 1 limited 2D graphics with 8 programmers back then?

so a simple Formula for a successful Igavania game should be a 2D side-scrolling and have an in-game map which shows your progress

While you now take a moment to check how many of the games Done the above criteria and was released in less then 5 years, some was a one man show Creations:

Time Spinner (Best game Following SOTN albeit chibi Deformed Spirits)
Dead Cells
Dust: An Elysian Tail
Axiom Verge
Forgotten Anne
(Best 2D Style Game and Visuals)
Ori and the Blind Forest Hollow Knight
Strider
Deaths Gambit
Salt and Sanctuary
SHhovel KNight
(Several Seqels)
Shantae (several sequels)
Owl Boy

Michiru Yamane Music and Ayami Kojima timeless Art Style is what made SOTN stand the test of time, please go play your Game now: Obtain the Bat Sonar Ability then Collect The Spike Break Armor then the Silver & Gold rings go Save Richter and pause the game.

and ask yourself if you have achieved or surpassed what you have done?

having the same Music Designer is still not the same Game, (How many God of war Games failed without the Original Director), its the same as going to watch a new Batman Movie or a Star wars movie and realizing its not done by the same director or the same as when you have expectations for a new Metal gear Game or king Of fighter Game and you see that the new Team has failed to Capture the magic of the early Releases

please learn from others mistakes, look at Mega Man latest Terrible Games, and look at Mega Man Zero / Mega Man ZX on GBA / DS these games capture your SOTN spirit and now they are making Dragon: Marked for Death

we fans follow who made our games because we know they are faithful in doing their work

10 years from now ill only remember your game: Bloodsteinaed as the game that was in development Hell, was more important to you to get a physical release then a digital and let it out on PS Vita and Switch ( regardless of Vita Piracy you would have made a fortune from Asia and Japan the console is still alive with digital Purchases)

you should really reward what your followers want, not go corporate and apologize for 5 years and make excuses and delays.

please return to making games that has the visual appeal of SOTN with the same artists or someone who follows in their style, SOTN was not a one man show and was a collaboration of the best talents from music and art and Accessible Game play and Direction.......you wont bet my support without your original Team

Sorry but you should council with Toru Hagihara and not add more studios....

at least bring the man who Helped make Castlevania Great again

5 years Excuses and Delays is not justified by Apologizing when you have made SOTN with LESS talent and Man Power

Sonic 4 was a flop (it followed the original without the Mechanics that made it great)
Sonic Mania was success (it followed everything the Original Did)

Sonic Mania is a sign that Fans know how to make a successful game to a great Series after decades past.............

if i had the chance to Remake SOTN ill chose this style:(the first time i saw the traler i didnt belive it was 3D untill the camera Angle changed)
and release another Expansion using this 2D Fighting Engine:

What Arc System Works done for their work is what SOTN and any Future successor to it Deserves

i Rest my Case with the Community

I do not enjoy shooting animals. I have done it a couple of times, and I felt like shit.

But there are legitimate reasons for hunting outside of the sport of it.

Predators being introduced into places where they cause a ton of destruction.

Where I grew up just outside of Austin, the deer grew to a crazy level, but physically they were suffering from malnutrition and inbreeding.

You had a ton of starving deer, who were fucking their own family.

So they set up these giant nets to capture this crazy deer 🦌 population. And they transported them somewhere else. But I have no idea how that worked out for them in the end.

Let's talk about our lives and ourselves.

What's going on with you? Anything you want to share? Good, bad or otherwise? What are some things you need to work on? What's stopping you? What is your game plan to work towards life-and-self-improvement? What is your game plan to maintain a game plan and not fall off course?

i would like this to have its own post in Gaming Discussion Please, thank you!

Topic:: Someone is Remaking Castlevania SOTN with outstanding animation in Unity Engine!

Post:

i will let the Video Speak for itslef!
i have no idea if he plans on releasing a full remake, he is recreating all artwork from scratch

this is exactly what any fan of SOTN have wanted, ill settle for a remake in the fashion of Shadow of colossus and Crash N'Snane Trilogy after watching his amazing spirit animation work

sadly i am certain Konami will be sending him a Cease and Desist the moment they see it, i strongly believe this will Honor SOTN and Igarashi's Original work, he has been working on this for years and plans to release a SOTN engine with a game maker with assets, i wish him luck if he honors his words

Own, you might want to drop the whole text below the --- lines for now as it has a lot of resemblance to advertising. It is that i looked at your other two posts so i could determine that you aren't a bot, but not gonna lie - I was going to report this.

I was thinking whether anyone on GAF currently go on Night/Adult Courses and wish to have a discussion of it in a thread?

Curious if anyone is on one (I have been on two myself, currently trying to expand my skills) and if they find the courses flexible/limited and whether they offer enough courses for those of us who wish to persue a different Career path. :)

If not, then please ignore this.

Honest question, since I don't know how this works: each time I want to create a topic, I need to ask somebody?
Neo Members can't create threads, I assume to combat spam. You'll get member status when your account is at least one month old and has 50 posts after which you can create threads whenever you want without having to ask here.

Wow! Geez, it's so easy. I don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.

I prefer lurking over posting 99% of the time. I don't care about starting threads, I just don't see why we're prevented from editing our own posts. It seems like a silly, arbitrary limitation.

It is quite easy, ackchually. See, you're now 1 post closer to member status.

The limitation is there to prevent spam bots from editing in malicious links after a seemingly innocuous post. It's especially important now that anyone can sign up with a free email account.

I would like to propose a thread for Politics entitled...

The Art of Debate prove your skills in one of the oldest art forms

The thread would then read...

In light of seeing numerous new posters meet their untimely end, I thought a place where one could practice their debate skills might be something we all could find useful .

Many members are banned far too early because they find themselves resorting to personal insults of other members, or the Forum itself, posting links that have no relevance to the topic at hand or completely false, throwing around conspiracy theories, or just generally finding themselves shall we say always enraged.

Debate is wonderful because it lets people of different opinions come together and share them in a forum of discussion, the discussions might get heated, they might get tense, you may even be offended, but at the end of the day everyone can go home respecting their fellow human being even if they don't agree with them...and you never know your opinion could be challenged, you might even gasp change your opinion.

So come and lay down your controversial opinions, your ire at recent stories or challenge somebody else's, that's what this thread is for!

END THREAD POST

I was even toying with the idea of making the usual rules about attacking other posters (see above) a tad more lax sans straight trolling, as a learning curve @EviLore that would obviously be up to you...

Anyway let me know what you think, and thanks.:messenger_beaming:

I'm not sure if this can be posted because it would qualify for the politics board but here it goes.


Title: Man rejected for policing job in Chesshire police force, due to being white and straight,

I have been seeing opinions that go from accepting that discrimination that favours a POC like this is justified because a roll needed to be filled, to any kind of discrimination that favours innate characteristics such as colour or sexual preference is never okay. I respect the diversity of opinions on NeoGAF and wanted to see a discussion on a real world event where workplace discrimination occured due to a person being from a majority.

I have been seeing opinions that go from accepting that discrimination that favours a POC like this is justified because a roll needed to be filled, to any kind of discrimination that favours innate characteristics such as colour or sexual preference is never okay. I respect the diversity of opinions on NeoGAF and wanted to see a discussion on a real world event where workplace discrimination occured due to a person being from a majority.

I would like to propose a thread for Politics entitled...

The Art of Debate prove your skills in one of the oldest art forms

The thread would then read...

In light of seeing numerous new posters meet their untimely end, I thought a place where one could practice their debate skills might be something we all could find useful .

Many members are banned far too early because they find themselves resorting to personal insults of other members, or the Forum itself, posting links that have no relevance to the topic at hand or completely false, throwing around conspiracy theories, or just generally finding themselves shall we say always enraged.

Debate is wonderful because it lets people of different opinions come together and share them in a forum of discussion, the discussions might get heated, they might get tense, you may even be offended, but at the end of the day everyone can go home respecting their fellow human being even if they don't agree with them...and you never know your opinion could be challenged, you might even gasp change your opinion.

So come and lay down your controversial opinions, your ire at recent stories or challenge somebody else's, that's what this thread is for!

END THREAD POST

I was even toying with the idea of making the usual rules about attacking other posters (see above) a tad more lax sans straight trolling, as a learning curve @EviLore that would obviously be up to you...

Anyway let me know what you think, and thanks.:messenger_beaming:
I missed your post, do you still want me to create the thread?

@Helios Yeah lol More and more derailing, personal attacks and the like I think would benefit from civil debate...

Maybe a few less bans will come of it, probably not...but it doesn't hurt to dream lol

Could someone make a thread in gaming? (or just answer the question for me):

Are the Segabase articles about "the rise and fall of Sega" still online anywhere?

They were an ultra detailed (kind of biased, but fact-filled) report about Sega's 4th-6th gen business, that's useful every now and then whenever a "what killed Sega" discussion pops up. It's been archived over time, but Google isn't giving me any results.

Title: /r/neogaf |OT| Reddit Discussion

Reddit is a social network, in similar function to a message board that many games, communities and fandoms often make sections (subreddits) on. It can also be a good source for a wealth of information, memes and current events. Post any discussion about Reddit and it's subreddits here.

Be sure to post any subreddits links using the old.reddit.com format! The new design is rather awful, with most preferring the old design anyway. The "Old Reddit Redirect" plugin can help with this:

Chrome (and Chromium variants): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/old-reddit-redirect/dneaehbmnbhcippjikoajpoabadpodje
Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/old-reddit-redirect/

Some subs I recommend:
/r/greentext (mostly dumb greentext stories full of "yeah, that totally happened" moments)
/r/wholesomememes (memes that make you feel good)
/r/nottheonion (real life stories that you'd expect out of a parody publication like The Onion)
/r/buildapcsales (ongoing sales on various PC parts)
/r/softwaregore (pictures of malfunctioning software with an odd/cursed feel to them)
