  • Aw come on, guys. This game isn’t an MMO so much as yet another team shooter, and it doesn’t have jack to do with Kain or his and Raziel’s sagas.

    An ACTUAL Legacy of Kain MMO would be fantastic! 😀

    This is just poo.

    Hoping that it beats Transformers Universe’ record for being quickly and quietly shut down while in beta.
