>killing off arcade divisions
If that means Bemani is dead now then no.
eh, I'm willing to sacrifice some rhythm games if it means the return of MGS and Castlevania kino
cant rlly see modern konami making a good metal gear game that metal gear zombies game was fucking awful
They'll go back to making the usual Konami stuff. Castlevania, Silent Hill - American bad
edition, weird indie experimental games and not much else.
I'm not really sure why they decided to start making arcade games tbh
I'm not one of those guys who thinks MGS is doomed without Kojimbo since Ghost Babel and Portable Ops were bretty good. But all I can really see them doing with the series as it is now is remakes, since Nostalgiafags have been asking for a new MGS1 remake since the PS3 days. I don't know why anyone wants that after what happened last time.
Arcade games were actually a huge industry in Japan and Korea before everyone got corona'd
>>715>I'm not one of those guys who thinks MGS is doomed without Kojimbo since Ghost Babel and Portable Ops were bretty good
i did dig those but i do think the series is doomed. theyve lost so much of the staff they had in their good days.>But all I can really see them doing with the series as it is now is remakes, since Nostalgiafags have been asking for a new MGS1 remake since the PS3 days.

Id accept just remakes I dont even rally need em to change mechanics the whole series is preety mechanically solid even with flaws
just give me mgshd collection with some enhancements and extra content tbh
Yeah that's a good point. I absolutely loved MGSV despite the story being unfinished since the mechanics and controls were so good. I'm not usually into remakes but would totally buy a Fox Engine version of MGS3 or something. If they were gonna attempt a new game I'd rather they just start anew with different characters rather than continuing with Snake/Big Boss' story since it's kind of a mess at this point.
>>721>I absolutely loved MGSV despite the story being unfinished since the mechanics and controls were so good
They were utter dogshit. Go back to cuckchan faggot.>would totally buy a Fox Engine version of MGS3
jesus fucking christ, I take it back, go back to reddit
Meh, let MGS rest in peace, there's no reason to make a new game in the series, remakes included. The best is to make a spinoff with new characters and settings but you might as well call it a new IP in that case.
Well, MGR2 from platinum is the only thing i would consider but that's it.
t. bitter nostalgiafag
calm down bro it's just a game
>>731>The best is to make a spinoff with new characters and settings but you might as well call it a new IP in that case.
I'd accept that. I don't really care about the story and characters that much, I just want more of the gameplay. The only other stealth series I know of is Splinter Cell and that's also dead iirc.
Well, MGR2 from platinum is the only thing i would consider but that's it.
Would be based but I can't see it happening since it didn't sell that well
First time I'm ever hearing this though. Didn't know that ngl
A new 2-D
Castlevania game similar to Bloodstained would be the shit tbh
waht an interdasting post that guy was so btfo by u
go back to 8chan faggot
Capcom had a comeback, can Konami do it?
classicvania, igavania, 3dvania, don't matter to me so long as they get the feel right.
as long as it's cryptic and punishing, to me that's what a castlevania game is really about.
If they could make even a modern 3d vania with some cues from dark souls and use something like circle of the moon's tarot card system that'd be really heckin neaterino.
3D Castlevania has had a pretty bad history with the N64 games and LoS (I heard that one PS2 game was okay though). But I guess with the right team it could be good. Maybe give it to Platinum since they did a good job with MGR. Hell even if the game was bad it'd still be better than the shitty Netflix show.
there were a few ps2 games, I never played any of them. I wanted to try lament of innocence particularly.
castlevania 64 I rented a few times as a kid and I didn't hate it but it was clunky, but then again, most castlevania games are kind of clunky.
I tried the GBA games. I thought they were really good. Even if they were low budget-esque. If a game company follows the formula right, they can easily make a game as good as those
>most castlevania games are kind of clunky.
It's not a bug, it's a feature

Bad news is that the majority of Castlevania games don't sell very well. Which is what happens to most Konami games.
Ironically the recent 3D game, "Lord of Shadows", was one of the most highest selling Castlevania games that has been released since then
Are you aware of Bloodstained? The same guy who made the GBA Castlevanias left Konami and started his own company where he makes pretty much the same shit. There are also some similar Castlevania games on the DS if you haven't already played them
>>765>Bad news is that the majority of Castlevania games don't sell very well. Which is what happens to most Konami games.
Hollow Knight sold 3 million copies and Ori turned a profit in one week, there is money to be made there. Konami are just more interested in mobile casinos and shitty light gun games
yah but thats just two examples out of hundreds and both of their sales were partially boosted by furries and whatever you call fly fuckers. bug chasers? anyway you could say theres money to be made in any genre but that would require someone being willing to take a gamble and try something new and jap companies in particular autistically adhere to formulas so its no wonder they always wind up being propped up almost exclusively by equally autistic consumers
fuck that was meant for >>774
They don't sell well, but Castlevania doesn't need much of a budget so they're likely to profit anyway. Plus Indie Metroidvanias have been fairly popular for the past few years, so a lot of people who are into those would probably be interested in trying out the series that actually started it all.
Well, I wish this were the case. What does Konami even have planned for the next 1-5 years?
>>731>there is no reason
Yes, there is.
Metal gear 1 and 2 are dated beyond belief, and MGS needs a remark because even it is obsolete as shit technologically.
MG and MG2 sure, but no way would they be able to recreate the atmosphere from MGS1 with modern hardware. Also they tried already with Twin Snakes and everyone hated it (imo it wasn't too bad but that was the general consensus)
Maybe I should give Chaos Theory a go. I've never played it before
redpill me on Splinter Cell, I've somehow never played one of those
Incoming incoherent ramble:
Chaos Theory is the best one, there's plenty of fuck around room if you just want to toy with the enemies. You can throw rocks and bottles at their heads and knock them out and toss their bodies over railings or hide them in floor vents and shit. One of my favorite thing to do in the first level was waiting for some guy to cross a rope bridge over a gorge and throw a rock at his head and watch him fall into the gorge. You can also shoot niggers through certain walls, if you don't feel like giving a shit about a completely silent no-kill run for a mission you can pick a sniper or shotgun attachment for your gun and blast motherfuckers, but you can die pretty quickly if the enemies are actively looking for you and when you reach the maximum alert level they're ALL actively looking for you. Game's fun as shit, too bad the multiplayer is nonexistent anymore though, because spies vs mercs was top tier. All of the levels are pretty fun to play too, though there's one where you're in an office building during a blackout and it kinda sucks in some spots, but that might just be me since I don't like office buildings in general regardless of what the game that contains them is like.
Oh yeah also, Sam's face looks fuckin hilarious because I guess they did like half of his face and then mirrored it so he's got like a wall eyed look to him.
Noice, might pirate some of them if I ever feel like it. Is there a good place to start? I'm guessing this series isn't as story-heavy as MGS
Okay. I like what I am listening to.
But how is the story for the game? The characters? The setting? etc
MGS remake and new Silent Hill are the rumors. But a lot of it is being stirred up by Playstation fanboys who are thirsty for anything to play on their nogaemsbox 5
In that second mission, in the bank, there's this part where you can drop from a vent right next to two guys who be sittin like this.
Anyway, couldn't figure out how to do this part stealthily for the longest then I just dropped down there fucking around thinking it wouldn't work.
Anyway yeah, Chaos Theory particularly deserves some sort of re-release.
I would take it just on steam tbh. If they could re-make 1+2 with the QoL Chaos Theory had that would be great too, but I'm not hopin for too much.
fwif I can't remember the story for shit but it's some pretty standard tom clancy shit. sam's a badass single dad who don't need no woman to raise his daughter.
the setting is pretty much just where a slightly futuristic military industrial complex of the mid 00s and the intelligence community intersect.
it's way way way more grounded in that regard than say mgs, and the gameplay as well.
Story and characters are all good or at least not irritating as fuck. Setting is a bunch of places all over the world at night, not sure what to say there it's pretty varied. Like the first level is some South American shithole iirc, then the next one is a cargo freighter at sea. You also go to North Korea.
I'm not 100% certain but I'm pretty sure you can hack the computers without having to even enter that room. Like just sit at the vent and use his nagic wifi gadget bullshit.
I only played the first Splinter Cell and it was fucking complete shit so I didn't bother to finish it or even try any of the other games in the series. Couldn't stand it, tbh.
I think he was talking about >>804
Chaos Theory though
Ports are a good sign at least, it shows that Konami still sees value in actual games enough to sell them
Doesn't Konami already have a patent on those games?
It's a renewal of trademarks that were about to expire, it's a nothingburger basically. The Silent Hill stuff is more credible.
