    I heard it was awful. Ive seen the info and sprites on Gauntlet's page...

    You must be a really dedicated Rockman/Megaman collector to want that!

    It has the distinction of being the only Rockman game where Wily builds a tentacle rape saucer, at least.

    Would you mind scanning that review in? Im very interested in this. Were the screenshots shown from the Novotrade version or the one shown on the box and ad?

    Any info is appreciated greatly.

    I don't mean to start a fight, but there is NO evidence that supports this claim. Kid Dracula is never referred to as Alucard. It's a pet peeve of mine.

    Yes, it's got Dracula. And yes, it's his son. But still. :P

    No offense taken. =)

    Castlevania or not, I really love the Boku Dracula kun games.

    And that is Galamoth in the end, right?

    That box art is absolute quality.

    Out of interest, what do you reckon to the two N64 games; is it worth playing through both of them? I did play the original, but I'm interested in how much the game chaged for its upgrade.

    Good question.

    The original Castlevania 64 was originally intended to have 3 or 4 playable characters. Reinhardt, Carrie, Cornell, and a character who never appeared in either version named Corler, who is believed to have been turned into the invincible Frankenstein monster in the garden maze for the final release.

    Basically, Legacy of Darkness is what the original release SHOULD have been. More levels, 4 unique playable characters with different stories and play modes, and more polish. An added bonus is it works with the expansion pack, though it doesnt add much IMO besides smoother edges.

    I also played CV64 first, and LOD second. I found it to be a bit more of an upgrade, its a significant enough improvement to warrant purchase and playthrough.

    I hope that helps.

    Lord Contaminous: I know this is off topic, but that Guilty Gear animation you have, is that from a real anime?

    Actually, there are tons of people out there who have more CV games than I do (I just have dupes of a number of them, and no plans to sell them right now). As far as jealousy, nah, I'm over that.

    Right now I'm working on Contra stuff, anyhow. Though I could go for a DXX Holy Bible, as well as the guides to the FC CV games...

    Hey Ed, check out some of the oddball guides here. That Akumajo Densetsu one looks pretty strange!
