03 November 2013 - 01:37 AMIt works for LoS. They took the Oldman movie idea, and put a Belmont in it. I think they made it work far better than Legends ever did, which only amounted to "lol Alucard shags Sonia". There's a reason IGA retconned that shit. It was cheap and stupid, without adding anything.
LoS meanwhile, makes it work. You've got a holy warrior of God, who goes to the ends of the Earth to defeat evil in the name of God, so the dark magic cast over the land is lifted, and in the end, it was all a farce, all a ruse by Satan and Zobek. He killed innocents, kicked Satan's ass, and didn't get even a thank you. The mask did not actually revive the dead. To put the cherry on the downer of an ending LoS had, he then learns that by killing the three dark lords, he fucked up a seal they had going on an ancient demon, and was forced to become a Vampire to enter it's demention and kill it, losing whatever he had left of his remorse and Humanity in the process, being consumed by vengeance and hatred.
In MoF, Trevor is sent to kill his father, after being hidden from him. Gabe kills him, thinking him just another brotherhood pawn, and realizing that the Brotherhood sent his own son to die at his hands, after their betrayal in the first place against himself, decimates a brotherhood outpost, inadvertently killing his Son's wife, and leading his grandson to vengeance, aided by Alucard, the vampirized son of Gabriel, turned in a seemingly vain attempt to save his life after his death at his hands.
But, even Gabe's hatred and fury dies down, and is replaced by anguish at not being able to actually join his wife, during which time, Satan decides to make his comeback.
It's a redemption story. Gabriel falls from grace, becomes evil against his will, but eventually has to redeem himself by saving the world again, as he technically still is God's chosen one. (Lampshaded in the trailer, where he grabs a crucifix from a Brotherhood knight, since it does jack all to him)

14 September 2013 - 11:56 PMNo offense Flame, but I don't count "Copy" Sigma as "THE" Sigma. Otherwise, you could say we fought Sigma 15 or so times with all of the other Copy Sigmas on the second part of the Moon, after you fight Vile, inside of Sigma Palace. Just because those copies were way weaker, does not excuse the fact that we fought them. I do wonder though, why Lumine never transformed into neither Copy, nor Devil Sigma while you fought him. That could have been interesting.
I was mostly joking, and pointing out the cleverness in technical terms, of the Sigma formula in X8.
but now that you mention it, well, we kinda did Fight Sigma like 15 times. New gen Reploids become Sigma, remember? (as Oakie stated) So technically, we fought Sigma far more than once or twice.
11 September 2013 - 10:04 PMPersonally, i would have been pleased either way. I wanted to see MS' interpretation of Julius, but at the same time, I wanted to see more original Belmonts from them, since I loved Gabriel as an original Belmont.
11 September 2013 - 10:01 PMBut you already fought Sigma's second form.
That's the beauty of X8. It does not change the Sigma formula at all.
You fight Copy Sigma after beating the 8 bosses again, and then after a brief stage on the moon, you fight Sigma's "true" form.
See? We still got 2 Sigma Fights, one stronger than the last. Only they were separated by a stage in-between.
