It's OK. It's Konami he's leaving. He probably just got tired of them making him develop games a dueldisc.

Prob for the better, I'm pretty sure Konami was blocking his creative freedom lots considering they took his baby and gave it to a less competent dev. Maybe now we'll see some fine 2D Metroidvania action-RPGs return to consoles...

It's sad and more sad due to the new direction castlevania took, i mean i played the originals, then the metroidvanias which i prefer but the latest three titles have a feel to me of God of War only fused with Castlevania, which is not good in my opinion, the feeling of mistery, of the super natural, the atmosphere is lost.

And i read some stuff regarding the newest castlevania, basically the castle does not wants for Dracula to ever leave so it tries devouring, what? it's missing so much of the old good Lore of metroidvanias me thinks, like say is there a vampire killer whip? if so how did it came onto being? ah no it was replaced by the generic combat cross, the sacrifice of Leon's beloved and her hatred of Vampires gave a nice touch to the whole story.

As appealing as the idea is, not everybody is suited to be a freelancer. And unfortunately for IGA, he basically has one calling card vis a vis a lot of the other guys out there.

There's more than a bit of irony in praising SOTN for being 'inspired' by Super Metroid while pretending God of War didn't borrow heavily from Lament of Innocence and Rygar. I would also question how adding actual attachments and functions rather than just moar damage omg it's on fire.
