        Play the best version. No generic anime portraits, no touch screen gimmicks, and luck actually works.

        Better yet: just don’t play it, because Castlevania is a failed series that was never actually good. Every pre-SotN game was bullshit bullet-hell artificial difficulty with movement so sluggish it makes Red Dead 2 seem fast-paced, and every post-SotN entry is a poor-man’s Metroid. Clones of clones.
        The only good entry was Lords of Shadow 1, but you plebs love to shit on that one for being too much like God of War instead of more like the older, shittier, entries in the franchise.

            That is exactly the opinion of someone who has never played any of those games themselves, and only borrows every opinion he has from Gankereddit.

            SotN released in 1997, a full 3 years AFTER Super Metroid (the third in its series) perfected the formula. How can it be anything other than copying you semi-delicious twat-nugget?

Unless you lived through their release, shut the fuck up, because you have no fucking clue how much you owe to those experiences, how drastically they influenced the industry, and how there was literally nothing like them before them.

                    I was 6 years old when OG Metroid released. It was fine for its time. But it’s aged like milk. Super reinvented the wheel by improving everything Metroid did well, and erasing everything it fucked up (a ton).
                    Quit trying to revise history, whippersnapper. You’re probably as old as my children.

            Game’s like Golden Sun and Harmony of Dissonance look their best on an actual GBA. Golden Sun in particular has lighting effects that don’t work with a backlight on. Anyone emulating GBA games is getting a sub-optimal experience.

              You can turn down the saturation when you’re making the .cia. It’s not optimal, but it’s something.

        The bigger part of farming is for the crafting. You’d think that the souls required to upgrade weapons would become gradually more difficult to obtain, but no. Out of the 8 or so upgrades for the regular sword, the 2nd or 3rd one requires a Valkyrie soul, which has the highest level of rarity and can take over 30 minutes of farming just to get one. Then the next one after that is much easier to obtain.

I had already played DoS and OoE years ago but I forgot everything about them so I might play them again. I never got to run PoR in my DS flashcart because it would freeze after a few minutes, but it might work better if I play it through TwilightMenu++.

        Replaying CotM and HoD myself. Did the switch port for CotM make the game easier? Because its a lot easier than when I did a blind run of the game last year on GBA.

        Also where do I go in HoD? I got the double jump and beat the minotaur but now I’ve been circling the castle looking where’s the next zone and the map isn’t nearly as intuitive as CotM’s was.

          Wish I could help but I honestly forgot most of the game even when I just beat it like two days ago, the backtracking in that game is plain insufferable, but I recall is hard to get lost, just keep moving forward since the first half of the game is very linear until you reach the top of Clock Tower.

          As tips, two save rooms have access to hidden rooms with important items and if you press down on the circular teleporters, they also serve to teleport to the others around the map but the game doesn’t tell you unless you find one of the six tips.

      I agree with fixing Luck, since that was obviously a huge glitch that I can’t believe nobody caught before release.
      But the art style was great in both games, and touch screen stuff was a lot of fun. Plus, you can do touch screen things on your computer emulation with the mouse.

        Oh right. It’s because Nintendo pressured Konami into adding touchscreen features to DoS because it was a launch title. The devs knew it was bullshit, and that’s why they didn’t have it in the other two titles.

      Has anyone documented the formulae for luck and random drops in the GBA/DS games? I’ve always heard they’re broken, but exactly how broken?

      I will say one of my favorite things about Bloodstained is that you can actually tell when you put on a luck item. You immediately start getting more common drops, rare drops, and higher value bags of money drop.

        No. It’s the worst of its type, which means it’s like a 7 instead of an 8 or a 10. Curse of the Moon is good though.

      I have this on DS. Fiddling around with the fucking stick suddenly is just as bad as moving your hand from your controller/keyboard to the mouse to do the same shit on emulator. Might even be less effort if you manage to do it with gyro mouse or some shit, though I’d probably rather kill myself than attempt to draw some of the harder runes with it.

        OoE was a mixture of Dracula and Frankenstein and would do this chad stride before punching the shit out of her with his own bare hands, so he gets my vote.

        And that’s on top of asking her before the fight if she just came there to be one of his concubines which is pretty based to me.

          it cracks me up that they even included Kid Dracula. I always thought that it being a Castlevania game was just sort of a joke but apparently people really do consider it part of the series.

            depends what you find the most difficult about the game really. to me, the platforming bits are the hardest so Alucard makes the game the easiest to me. Sypha makes the bosses a pushover with one of her spells, but imo the bosses are mostly already much easier than CV1, so I feel like she isn’t as necessary. I actually do enjoy playing Sypha the most though, that lightning ball spell is just too fun.

        Undying Moon is pretty neat, not a 1:1 recreation of the original tho, so if you want to play the original you gotta play it separately. thankfully it comes included.
        as for G&G, PSP’s Ultimate is still the best one
