You’re probably right.
I caught the bit about changing Time’s path at the exact moment (the edge of the coin) and how it couldn’t devour it’s own soul in SR1, which was Raziel’s from the past (SR2), but I always assumed when Kain pulled out the Reaver, Raziels own soul was out of both his own body and out of the Reaver.
As for Janos, Raziel’d have to try pretty damn hard to bring him back, considering that at some point between the Past in SR2, and in BO2, he has to be imprisoned by the Hilden, to be later thrown into Hell, and in all the intervening years that encompasses the first Blood Omen game, never be seen by anyone. Saying that though, he has to be brought back by Raziel in the SR2 Past, so he can be imprisioned by the Hilden for BO2. Time travel sucks.
Looks at post, mentally asks what the hell is Defiance, and goes to see if he can find a trailer. He does, he comes back and posts this
My GOD this looks amazing.This is the first I’ve heard of it. The moves shown in the video, like jumping off walls onto other walls, look great, and Kain finally got a decent blood-drinking animation!
The combat reminds me of Devil May Cry, especially in the sword moves Kain uses. If it uses the same or better graphics engine as SR2,as it appears to (BO2’s wasn’t really that good. The protagonists had about 10 animations between them) then this game is going to both look and play good.
I like the fact that BOTH wield the Reaver. It should be interesting to see what happens when the Ethereal Parasitic Blade meets the Physical Parasite Blade…:hahaha; However, they’d better not sacrifice the brilliant storylines on the alter of action and mass-market approval (Devil May Cry, I am looking at you!). The plot and rivalry between the two and the hinted-at-but-not-revealed dark foces is a masterpiece all on it’s own.
I also notice from the interview at http://www.gamers.com/news/1386011 that Mobius and the Eldar (voiced by the same guy as Megabyte from Reboot! That I did not know until I bought SR2. He rules.) are back…
Note to Eidos, I now expect great things from this game.
Correction; I am a REALLY big LoK nerd.
