I kind of need help with one thing. At the end of Lord Of Shadows I didn't really get the part when Marie said "I knew I could not tell you or despair would have eroded your resolve and everything would have been lost". What does she mean by that. The only thing I find that explain this is "she didn't fully trust him or his good heart" but I'm not sure if that's right. Can you help me with this?
Marie meant that if Gabriel found out about his role in killing her before getting the God Mask, destroying the Lords of Shadow, and defeating Satan, he would have descended into a suicidal depression and probably kill himself out of guilt before succeding in his quest. Based on Gabriel's outlook in the Reverie DLC, I think she was right.
On a related side note: according to the Catholic Church, if you commit suicide, your soul most likely ends up in Hell.
Thanks but, If Marie or that old goat looking person god ( for got the name) would of told Gabriel about his fate, It's most likely that he would avoid getting that mask on (How did he got it on anyways?) so he won't kill his wife. It's mostly Gabrie would of killed himself if he found out in the last minute (aka the ending of the game). The TRUE ending (aka the ending you have to pay for, DLC) I kind of don't know about but I know this ( correct me If I'm wrong), when the 3 LOS died, a god who can destroy the world and Gabriel has to stop him because that little vampire doesn't want the world to be destroyed. Gabriel has to stop him in his prison but he needs to become a demon or something like that to survive in there so he drinks all the girls blood. then he kill the god and become evil because an active of revenge towards god. the thing I don't understand is the one dude who betrayed him or one of the 3 LOS or Death, he survive so how was the barrier open for the god if only 2 LOS die?
I see. Well I still think the "despair would have eroded your resolve and everything would have been lost" is still bull but I'm not a fan of LOS so I don't really care. I played all 3 LOS games but I kept two of them, the first LOS and MOF Because although I don't like the first one that much, It's still a fun game to play and I got the special edition and as for MOF, the game play and kind of the story is the closest thing to the original games. Thanks for your help
Glad I could help! I love all of the Castlevania gameplay styles, but LOS is a personal favorite because I love the story and Mercury Steam's take on Dracula and the Belmont clan. The first game (in my opinion) is the best 3D Castlevania yet because it feels like Super Castlevania 4 in 3D. I can understand why some people wouldn't like them because they borrow elements from God of War and Devil May Cry, but that doesn't bother me becuase the franchise has a history of reinventing itself, such as when Symphony of the Night borrowed elements from Super Metriod.
I don't really see how LOS borrow elements from Devil May Cry. I just Really hope Konami will make another Castlevania game but I pretty sure it won't be good as the original ones. I really like the series and I don't wanted to end unless they make another LOS (no offense).
I'm not sure if you're aware, but Koji Igarashi is developing an independant game called BloodStained: Ritual of the Night. It's being described as a spiritual sucessor to the metroidvania games. You should check it out!
I couldn't think of where else to put this info, but I was researching into the events of years on the timeline between LOS2's prolouge and when Gabriel wakes up in the modern day. Interestingly, 1547 (the time of the prolouge) was the same year King Henry VIII of England died. Also, the year the pope consecrated the Bascilica in Castlevania City was the same year the Society of Jesus, better known as the Jesuits, was being held under scrutiny by contemporary Enlightenment scholars.
A few moments ago I started a poll to see if you'd like Dialogue Tables to appear within articles or in a separate sub-page, and I would also love to hear your opinion. Come visit the main thread HERE and make your voice be heard! XD
As I've been creating pages for Brotherhood members who were mentioned in scrolls, does everyone think we should add a section for each article for scrolls and memorials where it is relevant? Since we've done that for bestiary entries, it would make sense to do so with the scrolls.
I'm wondering if there should be a page dedicated to the Relics from Lords of Shadow 2 as a whole. I know that there are pages for the indeviduals relics and the general relics from other games, but my reasoning for a specific page is that it would go more in-depth about the system and how it replaces the sub weapons from the first LoS.
I've been wondering if we should add a page on the wiki for the Francis Ford Coppola movie since it's been stated to be a huge insperation for Dracula's character in the Castlevania franchise, wether it be in the classic timeline (Lament of Innocence) or the Lords of Shadow continuity. Dave Cox said in one of the Dev Diaries for LoS2 that the film was a major influence on their approach to Gabriel. Any thoughts? If so, should we also include other dracula films?
IMO, not necessary. A sectionfor the "classic films" Dracula character (Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee -- maybe Gary Oldman?) may be okay, but all films includes too much information the Wiki doesn't need.
Please take my advices in account. You're uploading pictures from other sites, with complicated names, and this is not good. Even if you're adding them to galleries in the correct way, be careful about it.
Be sure to follow the guidelines, or we'll have to take measures. Thank you.
