    ... You call that small?

    That's real impressive, especially that Haunted Castle PCB. Is that any good, anyway?

    Sorry I didn't say this at the Castlevania Dungeon boards, but that is a mighty impressive Castlevania collection you have going there, I wish I owned that many.

    Blimey! That's a very cool collection you have there. Nice to see the complete Haunted Castle kit.

    You planning on completing the Megadrive set, and getting a Japanese Vampire Killer?

    The game or the board? The game itself is a version K, so isnt the mind numbingly hard version M. Its tolerable.. depends on your actual tolerance for the game itself though. Many hate it . The board is fine, I tested it in a Supergun rig a week or two ago.

    Yes actually! I think Ill add that in to my thread in the Buyer/Trading forum. VK is actually one of the most expensive console Japanese games to collect in the series, it ranges from 150-200 USD even on Yahoo Japan auctions.

    That is a very nice collection, I would rather see this than a complete dreamcast collection or anything along those lines.

    Did that vs. Castlevania kit cost you an arm and leg? I would imagine so.

    Awesome collection. :) I think I have a pretty good Castlevania collection, but that whoops mine, hehe. I have almost every US release up to Circle of the Moon (the CV games after that just don't appeal to me much), as well as a couple Japanese releases (including Rondo; I actually had two copies at one point). I feel pretty content with the status of my collection, but I'll have to get that PS2 port of Haunted Castle sometime. I'd really like to put some more time into that game, but I'm just not into playing games on my PC and I'm not crazy enough to track down the arcade board. :P

    Those complete kits go for about 100 dollars actually, which isnt a bad price considering. One of them was on ebay recently:

    The Oretachi Game Center port is a decent way to do Haunted Castle on a console IMO, second only to a modded Xbox Mame emulator. Its the Japanese version, and is a reasonable difficulty so can be beaten, with minimal emulation bugs. The extras are nice too, a trading card, a mini DVD with superplay/a music video, and a 3 inch CD with the OST and a supersweep remix. The extras help make up for it being $20 + for a 20 year old game like that.

    Very very nice! Beats the hell out of my 13 Castlevania games. The arcade boards are the icing on the cake...

    That's really awesome. You better be proud of what you have there. Did you beat all of them? I'd assume so.

    Well.. within reason. Getting through the second and third playthroughs of VS Castlevania is... nightmarish. Especially if dipswitch 7 is set to hard.

    Hah! Yes, 20 dollars for the lot!

    Hah! Yes, 20 dollars for the lot!
    I'll take it! You take PayPal, kthx.

    But seriously, I have a friend who is a huge Castlevania fan that's going to go stir crazy when he sees these pics. I didn't even know some of those games existed, but then again, I haven't looked really deep into the series. I still love it though. Congratulations again for having an awesome collection there!

    My first PC games and favorite game of all-time.

    Akumajo Dracula (Famicom, cartridge re-release)
    Is this the one that cost like $300 - $400 ?
    You can also remove the word "small" from the topic because you have almost all (if not all) Castlevania games there is :P
