Diehard GameFAN writes, "Welcome to this week's, "Sequel, Spin Off, Start Over or Stay Dead?" Each week we're going to look at a dormant franchise that was once pretty popular, but for some reason has disappeared into the sands of time. Diehard GameFAN staffers will have four options for what they want to have happen to the series and you can see them in the title of this piece.
This week is a bit of a weird one as usually we have a few to a dozen staffers commenting on the game. This time though, it's only me. Only two other staffers had even touched the first game in the series, albeit it for less than an hour, NO ONE besides myself has touched the second game and our head of public relations owns both games but hasn't even put them in his Gamecube. In a way, this really doesn't surprise me as I'm definitely the From Software fan on the site. I've been playing their titles since their very first release in King's Field, and I assumed that because we have several unabashed Nintendo zealots working for me, that said staffers would have played the very first RPG series for the Nintendo GameCube, especially as this series was exclusive to the system. Alas, it was not to be and this week you've got only your intrepid Editor-in-Chief to discuss the history of as well as what should be done with Lost Kingdoms."
