This is definitely the series that needs remastered!!

ID: gqlvqsk

I am curious, what series is it?

ID: gqlw2hs

Legacy of Kain

ID: gqmm7c2

This one.

ID: gqm09d8

That particular shot is from the ps1 Soul Reaver which started it ,great set of games . You can find it on one of the streaming services ,don't rember which one though lol

ID: gqmxe0x

It needs a remake. Remastering it wouldn't do much at all.

ID: gqmzbgc

Too true. I tried to play it again a few weeks ago, the camera control, visual distance and just everything, oof I couldn't do it. Playing Shadow Hearts instead.

Hey kids, d'ya like block puzzles!?

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (intro)

ID: gqmnfx0

Without a doubt one of the best intro sequences of any medium ever. Up there with Bram Stokers Dracula.

ID: gqmw7b4

The ending of the game really got me how dark the series is.

ID: gqn5ve5

One of the best voice casts ever, Michael Bell, Simon Templeman, and Tony Jay are all legendary. If you want a laugh their outtakes that played during credits are hilarious.

ID: gqn31ob

Well, dangit. Now I know.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance was one of the greatest games I had played as a kid, and while it's definitely showing it's age it's still quite fun.

ID: gqnal16

Mobius getting what he deserved twice in about 5 minutes is one of my favorite gaming moments.

ID: gqmnldd

Yeah, unfortunately they are all showing their age. I want to go back and play through them all again but they were really games for their time. A remake with all the updated accoutrements really needs to happen.

"Given the choice, whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire; or to challenge the fates for another throw - a better throw - against one's destiny... what was a king to do? But does one even truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate... and thus defy the tyrannous stars."

This is the game that started it all for me, my love of gaming and computer's. I used to watch my Dad play Soul Reaver when I was a kid and try to help him figure out the puzzles.

Great game with great voice acting.

ID: gqn3kj7

Great story too.

I plagiarized the whole thing when I was a kid for writing class and got an A. Even had people saying "Wow, you need to publish this!", cue nervous laughter.

ID: gqnchmg

I remember doing the same but I would plagiarize the story from Fable.

The Dreamcast version still holds up pretty well

Most adults dont even know the theme song "Ozar Midrashim" is from the band Information Society.

Amy Hennig, the writer of these games, deserves to have her face carved into mountains for how she elevated video game story telling. She doesn’t get the attention she deserves.

I am faced with a dilemma, let's call it a two-sided coin. On the one side, I upvote this and get get lambasted for only having played Defiance for not being "true fan". The reverse: I forgo the upvote, allowing the series to fall deeper into obscurity, condemning it to further cultural decay. Either way, the game is rigged.

"Consider it, Raziel. If you flip a coin enough times, one day, it will land on it's edge."

I just remember thinking back then how ballsy it was to make the main character in the first game "Blood-Omen: The Legacy of Kain" the main bad guy in the second chapter "Soul-Reaver."

13 : Anonymous2021/03/11 19:39 ID: gqlwgoa

Ps2 where you play kain and Raziel is still solid. Felt almost dmc level combos.

ID: gqm6cdf

Defiance. Amazing game.

ID: gqmmxwi

Is on steam, if anyone wants the nostalgia. I was not nostalgic for the lack of camera control, though..

This series has some of the best voice work in any series, ever. I'd love if they got the original voice actors for a reboot.

ID: gqm7bh9

Tragically, the spectacular voice actor for the Elder God, Tony Jay, passed away in 2006. He'd be very hard to replace.

It’s a really great game. It’s a lot like Zelda. You solve puzzles and unlock new powers then use those powers to access new areas.

'Kain is deified, the clans tell tales of him'

18 : Anonymous2021/03/11 23:43 ID: gqms30g

It was funny. In Hawaii im positive i met Tony Jay (the elder God) before he passed away and he looked exactly like Tony Jay... so i asked him if he was TJ. And he said in the deep crazy voice...”Nah, Not as cooool as that cat”. I walked away dumbstruck and his wife was cracking up. Haha

I want a game when Raziel was still a vampire, with his actual wings before Kain ripped them apart.

ID: gqlzvjs

As dope as that would be I think he didn't have his wings for very long. Like, he mutated, and then went to Kain pretty much immediately or some such nonsense.

I wouldn't mind a retcon though.

ID: gqm2fwt

Yep. That's basically what happened.

He evolved past Kain himself. And Kain tears his wings off out of spite.

Of course, as you play through the game, namely at the end and into the 2nd game, you start to realize that there's ALOT more going on than it seems at first.

Great series of games.

"I am Raziel, first-born of His lieutenants. I stood with Kain and my brethren at the dawn of the empire. I have served Him a millennium. Over time, we became less human and more... divine. Kain would enter the state of change and emerge with a new gift. Some years after the master, our evolution would follow. Until I had the honor of surpassing my lord. For my transgression, I earned a new kind of reward... agony."

My friend was obsessed with this game, I never saw it. But the intro was sick.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/11 20:35 ID: gqm40hi

I remember playing the demo level over and over again, one of the best gaming memory for me but unfortunately never got to play the full game.

ID: gqmn1x7

This is the saddest thing I've seen on Reddit all day! 🙁

22 : Anonymous2021/03/11 20:12 ID: gqm0zc1

This definitely needs a remake.

Fuck i love legacy of kain JUST GIVE US A REMASTER HOW HARD IS THAT??

25 : Anonymous2021/03/11 20:23 ID: gqm2gml

Still my favorite non mmo (god of war runs a close second) game and series. The latter ones got kind of lame, especially the gameplay. None of them lived up to soul reaver in that regard. Bit the story, voice acting etc. So good. "Time abhors a paradox"

Kids today will never care, either.
