Where's my Friggin' Sequel: Blood Omen/Soul Reaver

   0
So it's about that time for more of my most wanted sequels in gaming. This one is not super old, but old enough to be annoying that there hasn't been a sequel for this series in quite a while, I am of course talking about the Blood Omen/Soul Reaver series. I miss it, I love it, I want some more of it.



It has been almost 9 full years since we were given the amazing game that is Legacy of Kain: Defiance. That's WAY too long for more action from the wraith Raziel or the vampire Kain to be wreaking Havoc, whether it's against each other or others. I have been a die hard fan of this series since Soul Reaver on my Dreamcast (I never heard of Blood Omen on PS1 until way later, I played it before Blood Omen 2 came out however). This series was one of the reasons I bought a PS2, since I got Gamecube AND Xbox before a PS2 but thanks to the WWE Smackdown series, Silent Hill 3, and Soul Reaver 2, I eventually bought one.

Sony has never been my first choice for gaming. I mean I love many of their games but not enough to get them right away. I've owned a PS3 for over a year now and have maybe 9 games... I've had a 360 since 4 months after it's release and have over 160 Xbox 360 games... that's some crazy math. But there's just something about this series that makes me go crazy and play it for hours and hours.

Perhaps it's the crazy powers Kain possesses in Blood Omen 2, or Raziel's ability to shift between realms, but there's something about these 2 characters that makes me enjoy their games. So I ask the question that's on all of our minds... Where's my friggin' sequel?

Defiance had a great ending, and maybe there wasn't much left to say afterwards, but I still want more. I mean Kain has been around for hundreds of years! Can't we have a Blood Omen 3 that takes place during some point between Blood Omen 2 and Defiance? And what about Raziel? He's also been around a long time? Why not a prequel before Raziel became a wraith? The possibilities for a sequel are there and could be potentially endless. But let's not forget, Kain had other vampires under his control, so why give all the love to just Kain and Raziel? That whole series could be fleshed out much more in terms of characters and the storied lives of Kan and Raziel.

So I say to you Eidos or whoever the hell owns the rights to this series, do something with it! A decade is way too long for a series that made most of us forget how crazy vampires could be, or how cryptic a wraith can be. Ii this series gets a sequel, be it Blood Omen 3, or Soul Reaver 3, or Defiance 2... I would go absolutely insane and would definitely buy it on day 1.

About GrimmTrixXone of us since 2:11 AM on 08.17.2010

My name is Eric and I am a 31 year old video game collector. I have been playing games since I was 4 years old starting with Atari and have gotten all of the main stream systems from then until now throughout the years. I currently have over 2600+ games in my collection spanning over 20+ systems from Atari to Wii U. I am a big collector of video game related things in general such as t-shirts, some figures, posters and other such stuff.

I was a former Game Crazy (former video game store; attached to Hollywood video) employee for 5 years before the company went bankrupt in June of 2010.

I enjoy video game music, be it original scores, symphony, chiptune, remixes, or whatever else. I also listen to metal/hard rock. I am currently listening to bands like Poets of the Fall, Skillet, and Mudvayne. My all time favorite band is Soundgarden, and my all time favorite artist is Chris Cornell.

I am also a wicked sci-fi nerd, primarily Star Trek. I also love Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG-1, Sliders, etc..etc..
