Some hilarious quotes from the games industry concerning the ''LoK'' series:
 
 
{{Quote|Details are anorexic|Patrick Garratt}}
 
 
{{Quote|Unfortunately, series writer Amy Hennig switched over to Naughty Dog, where she leads the team working on Uncharted (which, coincidentally, would totally benefit from a scene in which the main character has his lower jaw ripped off). Between that and the fact that the zombified remains of Crystal Dynamics seems to be mostly concerned with rebooting the Tomb Raider series every twenty minutes or so, a return to the Kain series seems depressingly unlikely.|Jonathan Grey Carter}}
 
 
{{Quote|It wasn’t really an influence|Joe Madureira}}
 
 
I am a big fan of ''Legacy of Kain'' and an administrator here.
 
 
I'm the sidekick in the dynamic here, lazily refining and reworking the vast (very vast!) bulk of material [[User:Baziel|Baziel]] tirelessly and ever-awesomely provides for articles. I can handle basic maintenance tasks such as .css, but this is far from being my forté on any level, and I largely rely on trial-and-error. Good thing for rollbacks.
 
 
Still hoping, probably in futility, for a ''Legacy of Kain'' revival. Like [http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=27967873&postcount=54 Divine Shadow] and [http://forums.eidosgames.com/showpost.php?p=1550022&postcount=21 ChocolateRob], I could write essays on the malaise of reboots and remakes, but I'll frankly take anything from Eidos at this point as long as it lives up to the main tenets of the series (great drama, complex story, open SR1-style world, original voice cast). Would be nice to think it'll happen before we're all dead.
 
 
[[User:Ardeth Silvereni|Ardeth Silvereni]]'s site, [http://www.dark-chronicle.co.uk Dark Chronicle], is a constant inspiration to me, and I can only dream that we will someday reach such a standard here. If you are new to this series and struggling to get your head around its plot, I highly recommend you go there first.
 
 
Don't shoehorn Raziel back in, let him rest in peace, etc, etc.
