Okay you guys who keep saying Reboot, and who keep having Reboot nightmares, you have to promise me that when the new game comes out and it's NOT a total reboot you'll stop talking about reboots. Please. Because it's not that bad. It just isn't. No matter what happens, the reboot of this particular series is guaranteed to somehow comment on what became of Kain's series-long plotline (to restore the pillars and return them to vampire control, to get out from under the thumb of the dark forces). That's not going to be dropped totally. We might not play as Kain, or fully recognize the new Nosgoth. But whatever Reboot action there is will still be following up on the only LOK story there is to do---we'll still be dealing with the aftermath of Kain's decisions, still living the Legacy of Kain. So please stop waking up at night in a cold sweat screaming out the word "Reboot!" That's no way to go through life, son. Just let that tension go.
I mean, the only thing worth having nightmares about at this time is the chance that they'll bust out with a DMC punk kid as the new main character. That's.... that'd be..... okay I'm shaking just a little bit. Because that's at least semi-likely. "Make the new LOK relatable to the new audience by giving them a character more like themselves!" Ow. Nausea. You know what? No. I'm not even worried about that. Because if War for Nosgoth refers to being a human vampire hunter, for example, during the 5th century when necros were taking over, I'm sure the game would try to keep the same TONE as in Soul Reaver, and that wouldn't allow for any butt-like kid characters with too-cool-for-school hairstyles and Cheerleader Chainsaw taunts. No. Not ever going to happen. My faith sustains me.
