Sudden Flurry Of Domain Protection For Wolfenstein And Kain

Sudden Flurry Of Domain Protection For Wolfenstein And Kain

image

CSC Corporate Domains was busy over the weekend, registering URLs for some familiar occult Nazi and vampire titles.

CSC Corporate Domains - best known as an URL registration intermediary - has laid claim to two suspiciously familiar domains: warfornosgoth.com, and wolfenstein-spiel.com. Neither URL leads anywhere fun right now, but who knows what the future will bring?

The Wolfenstein URL could well indicate another adventure for B.J. Blazkowicz, erstwhile hero and occult Nazi stomper, who last graced PCs and consoles back in 2009. As for Nosgoth, it's the fictional setting for antihero vampire Kain's adventures, but he hasn't seen the light of day - so to speak - in a very long while.

Anything's possible but, of course, we don't even really know who asked CSC Corporate Domains to register the URLs in the first place; cautious optimism is called for. Particularly when dealing with magic-wielding Nazis and jawless ghosts.

Oh yeah, there was a Wolfenstein title released in 2009, wasn't there. Never played it, was it any good?

Decidedly mediocre. Not 'bad,' per say, but nothing you'd ever go back to play again. I can't even recall that much about it.

OT: Kain?! Kainkainkainkainkainkainkainkainkainkainkainkainkain! Kain! KAIN!! Oh, please let this be something. A new title, a remake, I'd take anything. Gaming needs Kain right now.

New Wolfenstein title, too, yeah yeah, blah blah blah. KAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory are two of my favourite fps games. I was so excited for the new Wolfenstein title that came out in 2009 but it was so.. meh? Really disappointing.

I really miss the old Quake 3 engine though, back in my youth I was quite an accomplished trick jumper, they just don't make games like that anymore..

Wolfenstein/Kain crossover maybe?
Sounds nice, but the real question is: Will you be able to shot crossbows from the back of a motorcycle?

I'll be willing to go to Nosgoth, find Mobius' time chamber, & skip to the future myself to play a new Legacy of Kain game

Want. want. WANT!

On the account of Legacy of Kain; sounds like an MMO'ish title, which has me worried... that is usually the step just before making a racing game in the gaming industry.

However! Right now just hearing this about Legacy of Kain possibly returning has me all excited beyond belief. Although if they do not cast Simon Templeman and Michael Bell for Kain and Raziel it just won't be the same at all.

Here's hoping that they will treat this franchise with care as they revive it... if they revive it.

well they need Simon Templeman for Kain but if you played the last game Raziel is dead now if you remember he sacrificed himself so that Kain's Soul Reaver blade would become fully powered.

Given the ending to Defiance, I'd say the title could be referring to what was being set up there. Besides, how would an MMO in that setting even work? I suppose it could work in the era between Blood Omen and Soul Reaver where you could join one of the clans of Kain's "sons" or possibly during the war between the Hylden and the vampires. Other than that I have a hard time imagining how they could make that work.

Agree 100% on the voice acting. Without Templeman and Bell, things just won't be the same. Those voices more than anything define that franchise for me and I honestly can't imagine a proper LoK-game without them.

Huh? That's kinda odd. I just replayed Soulreaver, Soulreaver 2 and Defiance recently (I did not have access to Blood Omen or Blood Omen 2... not sure what happened to them... I blame former roommates). Seeing this gives hope. Let just hope it does not become an MMO. If I remember correctly (and I might well not) War for Nosgoth has been a possible title that has been knocking around since before Defiance.

As for Wolfenstein. Don't really care. I am going to have a look if it becomes something but whether it becomes something or not will no affect my mood.

Another Legacy of Kain game would be spectacular! It does remind and sadden me that the great Tony Jay is still dead however :(

New Legacy of Kain? Awesome! I remember renting Blood Omen as a kid, expecting a horror game and getting something completely different and loving it!

Here's hoping they don't pull a DmC and reboot Kain into a pretty boy vampire, or something else completely stupid and out of character. I can see them trying to appeal to Twilight fans since the guy is a vampire and all. "Kain was a vampire trying to damn all humanity, until he fell in love!" Eeeegh.

New Kain games would be great. Defiance was a decidedly lack-luster end to the series.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the original writer of Legacy of Kain doing Uncharted now?
Would that mean that they would have to get a different person to do the job, so the writing wouldn't be as good any more?
Would they ask Amy Hennig to come back?
Whatever happens, I remain as sceptical as ever, but hopeful for things to come.

Oh, and I don't care about Wolfenstein.

So long as its not like Blood Omen 2... GIVE ME MORE LEGACY OF KAIN!
