    Alucard and Maria as Sonic the Hedgehog characters. Interesting mix. Who's playing as who?

    • Link

      The character would be my Ouron as Richter, and DennyArt's Rosah as Maria.

    Used to love that game. Woukdn't olay it anymore as I try to avoid demons and stuff but cool fanart of it. You pretty well nailed the art style. Very cool.

      That is one game I find myself periodically revisiting. SotN is probably still my favorite in that series of games. ^.^
      Maria's outfit took rather more time then Richter's did. XD

    It had one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard. Konami was known for that. Her outfit does look more detailed.. I never got past middling at drawing. Today my pencil spins at several hundred rpms.

    • Link

      Oh yes! Konami's music in just about any of their games is fabulous!
      And I bet that pencil is a sight to behold!

  • Link

    Lol it's called a Dremel. But yes Konami is a great game company. (I think they're still around...I'm not in the videogame scene anymore).

    • Link

      Haha, I wondered if that was what you were talking about, but I couldn't think of the name of it at the time. (Though I also imagined when people flip a pencil around in their fingers).
      You know...I don't know if they are or not. I'm not as in touch with the video game community as I used to be, between not a lot of time to play them anymore, and not a lot of money to get them. xp

    Video games have ended up completely lacking intetest for me. They're a far different world today. I play some old game games on emulators and mess with some game building software a little and that's it.

    • Link

      That's about it. Most new games don't really interest me at all. Most of the games I own are from PlayStation 1 era, and I mostly just buy old games, and do like you do, and play some others through Emu. Other then that, there are a few computer based games I like, such as WoW when I have the money for it, and Smite. But yeah...very few of today's games manage to grab my attention and make me want to play them.

    Not only are they boring and appear repetitive but they also seem very lacking in inspiration as an artform. The videogames of my childhoodvwere very much so artforms. I wrote a journal on it that goes into detail so I won't launch into a chunk essay here but I feel they're just a money making vehicle anymore.

      Super late...I don't get on Weasyl quite as often as other places....
      But you are right. I've been feeling all of this for years. You still get some good ones here and there, but most of them are just turned out as fast as they can manage them, and they are pretty much just to milk the franchises further.

    The ultimate undead video game franchise has to be Final Fantasy. Sequals of Sequals.. Ten, Ten-Two..Come on Square! Although to be fair the name does derive from the fact they thought it was going to be their last game ever. It saved their bacon and they went on to create a whole number of good games so I guess I shouldn't complain. Personally I always liked Enix better. But I digress..

    • Link

      Right. I only had a problem with the Final Fantasy series with the games that started to feel like they had lost most of what the earlier games had in common, around the time they thought they needed to start getting overly realistic in their art style and models, and the series started to lose the cartoonist elements that made it so expressive. It went from unique and highly recognizable, to looking like every other game out there on the 'realism' trend. Sigh

      I did enjoy some of the games that Square Soft produced while they were still their own thing. I rather enjoyed both Brave Fencer Musashi games.

  • Link

    It wasn't just the 'realistic'...I t was that it had plunged headlong into anime style which ruined it for me. It seems like it's the one and only style they know.

    • Link

      Final Fantasy? I thought they had /always/ had an anime style to them. The series is from Japan after all. Even looking at their old games, it was typical JRPG style for the time.
      I can't really say I know much about Enix before they partnered with Square. I'd have to go look them up to see how many of their games I had played before that, but the name had not been a super familiar one to me before the merger.

  • Link

    Enix made the Dragon Warrior series as well as Ultima and later Seventh Saga and Illusion of Gaia.

    • Link

      Yeah, it is no wonder they were not all that familiar of a name to me previously. I looked over a list of their games and I think I had played all of two and maybe recognized five titles at most.

  • Link

    They'd been around a long time. I'm not sure though how many big memorable titles they had.
