Absolutely excellent. Had loads of fun with it. Now I just need to wait for the third one to arrive.

Hello what I assume to be a European. I'm an American who can't play Castlevania 1 on 3DS.

Backloggery. Now playing: 3D Dot Game Heroes, Donkey Kong, EarthBound Beginnings, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+.

Sorry. But are you enjoying Mega Man 3, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan? What I'd give to have the NA release schedule.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

Yeah, considering how Europe continually gets the short end of the stick in terms of retail releases, I definitely don't mind them getting the occasional download title before us. Too bad Atlus doesn't have a European branch...

Anyhow, I just downloaded Mega Man 3, and it is simply lovely.

Harvest Moon, as soon as I can actually buy it (The announcement is out but the game isn't >.>).

You guys think Gargoyle's Quest (GB) is a good game worth considering for your VC collection? I've never played it. The trailer gave me the chills.. It's because of the music and the character design (just look at Firebrand!) that I get nostalgic about.. Looks like a mix of traditional RPG (top-down view exploration) and a side-scrolling platformer. Recently, I played through Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and I really dug it (would actually rate it with a 7.5 out of ten).

It is indeed a very nice game for you collection if you liked Zelda II.

I think Zelda II is a badly designed time wasting game, and yet I love Gargoyles Quest - so take that as another reason to go buy it. :3

@Geonjaha Just bought it and it immediately goes into my top 5 Game Boy (B&W) games. And yes, it is superior to Zelda II in terms of design and overall quality. Though the combat system, the magical spells and battle screens (in the overworld) were all something I liked in Zelda II, You can't go without mentioning the empty towns, monster difficulty and the square-ish design that is all over the place... You do enjoy yourself becoming good with enemies in later stages of the game. Same with Gargoyle's Quest on that matter. : )

Gargoyle's Quest is a truly unique experience for the Game Boy. Firebrand (the protagonist) has the ability to hover in the air for a short period of time until his flying meter is depleted. You can also cling to walls and of course, fire projectiles at enemies. The only thing it is lacking is a bigger overworld and at least 3 more levels. Length and difficulty will be the only issues here (as the game is pretty challenging). The overall design (mainly character and world design) is conceived in a surreal gothic and almost post-apocalyptic fashion that makes everything fit into place. You'll get the chills down your spine if you've been active in the GB era. One can feel the melancholic vibes from the musical themes.. The essence of the Ghoul realm.

Yeah, I wish the game was bigger, but maybe that's where Gargoyle's Quest 2 and Demon's Crest come in. Too bad those haven't been released on 21st century consoles though.

Bought Castlevania (NES). Gameplay is kinda simplistic (but the whip has become a legendary weapon). The 5th boss is too hard. You can't manage without restore points (even with holy water). Those hidden pork chops don't satisfy my hunger.

The Grim Reaper is a bit excessive - but its possible to complete the game without restore points once you've got the hang of it. Holy water is the easy way, but again it's possible to beat him even without it.
