I love Legacy of Kain! I found that first game enthralling and it sold me on the franchise for a long time.
I also felt like the only person I knew who was playing it. It felt like a hidden gem I had found, at the time.
I'll just say you should hold on to that nostalgia and not revisit it, because it's ROUGH to go back to now.
My older brother and I played Blood Omen for about as long as it took to killed by a bunch of guys outside a tavern or some other kind of building. We had a lot more fun with Soul Reaver, with it's Zelda/Tomb Raider exploration and puzzles combined with the very-good-for-the -time voice acting and writing. It would be cool to see some sort of Re-master of those games, as we only played the first SR and I've wondered over the years where the story went after the giant To Be Continued.
I'm honestly a bit surprised that Square "We Reissue Every Game We've Ever Made Because Money" Enix hasn't done any kind of re-release, tbh.
Worth watching just for an underlit Roger rising from the bottom of the frame and uttering ｔｈｅ ｂｌｏｏｄ. Please tell him he is in fact my favorite video game-playing blue puppet.
I bet that colored lighting in the dungeons was pretty neato in '96.
Yeah, the lighting was definitely a selling point then, and I will let him know!
