Wow, Bloodlines was kinda low on your list but each to his own. Am I the only one that is itching to play some new Castlevania games? With Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate coming up soon, I hope it can deliver.

I hope so too. Looking forward to having a handheld Castlevania again plus the console Lords of Shadow 2. I'm glad Konami is trying to reinvent the series and keep the games rolling out. I would hate to see the series fall off in quality like Silent Hill or become nonexistent like Goemon.

Super Castlevania 4 is my favorite. Still think the graphics and music are beautiful. Pure art! :)

In no way do I think Bloodlines is Bad Dudes bad. It's just a little low on an extremely impressive list of an overall vampire killer series. I just prefer to battle in and around Drac's crib during one of his halloween gothic style raves as opposed to traveling around the world in 80 days you know?

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Well I have to say I am still enjoying Portrait of Ruin. Finally got pass the first boss (Yeah I know I am slow but I am bouncing between this and Warioland) which can be a p.i.t.a. if you use the wrong character. Still I can now see why this game was so hard to find. As good as Dawn of Sorrows was this game is better.

so .... since i have nothing left on the 3Ds to play, im atm hyped for the castlevania 3D : mirror of fate.
mostly reading forums now ( guess which one ;) and watching vids on youtube. Lord of shadow looked crazy - dont have ps3 though -
Ok so no pc game to play and no Wii / 3Ds . Well whats left to do if nothing on horizon in future ? You guessed right lets sink teeth into retro bliss :D

I just finished dracula X on the snes and am actually confused that there are a total of 3 castlevanias for the snes. And i heared Rondo of blood is THE definite retro castlevania so maybe i will give it a shot on the Wii, will see how many points it will cost ...
Until then i found that epic castlevania fans vid:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2lKRktcD00&feature=related

Oh and i salute that japanese fan who did all the guitar chords himself it seems , very good compilation of reminiscent cv medleys !!!

so either u can listen to it with closed eyes and guess where what song is first played in what castlevania installement. Or look at the screenshots and bath in castlevania nostalgia. Ofc i dont know all installements but maybe after time i will catch up with all. So far i only know castlevania 4 , dracula x , circle of the moon and dawn of sorrow. Yes i knew very little collection, but well time to get hands on more :)
Now finished on listening to the 1:22 hour epicness and going back to castlevania 4 .....
on to do list is cv 1 , rondo of blood and future mirror of fate

Update I I now bought Rondo of Blood and have to say of now its the most awesome classic castlevania i have played. Rondo totally annihilated super castlevania4.
Finished also portrait of ruin , order of ecclesia and have to say both are enjoyment. So i like both and classical. But i think order of ecclesia is best castlevania until 2012. Why you may ask ? Because it feels like best fusion between classic and metroidvania. And the dual wield fight mechanic is just so awesome :)

Update 2 with spoiler Its just awesome that u can fight vs richter and play him in porait of ruin. Thats really nostalgic :)

cheers

Yeah I was bummed that Mirror of Fate got pushed back but if it makes the game better I guess. I still wonder who the fourth character will be though.

no no , back than i really thought the glorious SNes had 3 different castlevanias.
But i figured yes the rondo of blood is no snes title, but a superior turbografix / pc engime game.
Sorry for the fault. But as those 16-bit gems go i would rate them. Rondo > DraculaX > super castlevania4
I dont understand the hype over super castlevania. The final boss battle in super castlevania4 was the most dull and unimaginative fight i've ever seen in any castlevania game.

correction ca2 or simons quest is supposed to be pretty bad
#I heared the Nes ca3 is supposed to be pretty bad#. I didnt try any of the NES installement. Not sure about the graphic style and i could go so retro hardcore :D
Sure the challenge should be handable but the graphics style is a bit weird. Eye cancer anyone?

cheers

PS: i started my castlevania legacy with the first game on GB ( adventure), and back then i never was able to finish it. Couple of years ago i did finish it and i found it quite enjoyable. Dont understand all the hate for the GB castlevanias. Sure legends was inferior to adventure, but well thats most old school u can get hehe.

Actually, aside from an insane difficulty, Castlevania 3 is quite well regarded. Castlevania 2 on the other hand....

wait a minute castlevania 2 for nes was simons quest ?
oh yes i meant two and not three -.-
yes i heared the grinding in simons quest is awful. And while playing portrait of ruin now i know what they mean :D
Grinding is really a bad game design choice.
So yeah u see i have not much clue about the NES games. Simons quest seems not very appealing with the muddy graphics. Castlevania 1 on the other side seems like a bad turkey trip. So not sure if i will ever play one of those nes games.
