        That's the impression I get as well. Man seems to have lost most of his passions. Pushing his friends away one by one probably didn't help either. We won't be seeing Board James anymore for example. Not that I mind anyway since that last season was just weird schizofrenic shit rather than comfy board game reviews like the early episodes.

      Yeah the episodes where he's chill and gives his plain, honest thoughts on a given subject are super comfy. I understand the character makes him money and feeds his family and pays his bills. I also understand a lot of people still like the character. But it doesn't seem like he has fun playing the character anymore. It feels more and more forced.

      I refuse to believe this is possible. We had AVGN threads for years when he was still in his early years and constant threads even after he started to wane in popularity, TGWTG was constantly posted here with Spoony being the particular one always talked about since people actually liked him, and laughing at CWC was board culture for literal years with some weeks having a thread daily.

      Linkara was more of a Ganker and Ganker thing, so unless you liked Power Rangers or comics I can believe you didn't hear about him, but not knowing about AVGN at the very least is ridiculous because he defined some of the very first rage reviewing content on early Youtube and was one of the top channels at the time if I recall. He was also pushed regularly on Youtube and had so many knockoffs it's unbelievable you have no idea who he is unless you weren't around when Youtube was still in its infancy. I'd understand if you said you didn't know who Ashens was or something but AVGN is unbelievable.

        TGWTG used to be very popular here early on because the Critic was a "rival" to AVGN and Spoony specifically got threads here all the time until he went completely insane and stopped making videos. People to this day still randomly make threads and posts with Phantasmagoria screenshots going "I HEARD THAT CURTIS" because of him.
        CWC has been around here for more than a decade and a half at least. Liquid Chris was an example where the board constantly kept making threads to laugh at Christ because that saga was hilarious.
        Linkara was a Ganker and Ganker thing primarily. He only got some threads here and there for off topic reasons and when his obsessions were found out like 6 or so years ago this board was inundated with that stuff for weeks if not months but that was a short period.
        Another example he didn't mention is Restupurae which got threads here constantly in their heyday until they got troll's remorse, and then they got threads here laughing at them for getting troll's remorse. If you see threads about certain old point and click games you'll usually see people parroting their quotes.

          I played it on PS3, I bought the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection when it came out and it came with a digital download code for Mirror of Fate HD. I played through it and remember the frame rate being fine. So if it was good on a PS3, I'm sure it's fine. Can't remember if it was 30 or 60 fps though, probably 30 like most things on PS3.

        It was so interesting growing up with Castlevania and having this game be my benchmark. This game was basically the equivalent to IV for me. It was the classic game. I had nostalgia for Harmony of Dissonance, but Circle of the Moon was my goat. Aria of Sorrow came out and it was like the Symphony of the Night for me. It introduced all this new content and ideas and it was a lot of fun as this RPG like game I could grind as a kid and mess around with, but CotM was still this ideal game I could always go back to when I wanted a pure experience. Then the DS games came out. Dawn of Sorrow was a huge letdown to me. Portrait of Ruin was cool though I hated the artstyle. Ecclesia was awesome because it felt like it was somewhat bridging the various styles together.

        I was slowly going back and playing the older Castlevania games along the way as they came out through ports such as Dracula X Chronicles and grew to love the older games. Super Castlevania IV ended up blowing my mind despite it being one of the last Castlevania games I actually played. It remains one of my favorites. I finally went back and replayed Circle of the Moon after playing more or less all the other 2D Castlevania games and guess what? It's still the goat. It is easily in my top three. I always chuckle when people hate on CotM. The game is just so awesome it cannot be contained. I can't believe it came out so easily in the GBA's lifespan. It is such an ambitious title and yet it more or less did almost everything it sought out to do. Everything is top notch and I love the overall tone and atmosphere of the game.

      James always had this idea that making internet videos is just a gateway towards hollywood and if he just got his name out there then in a decade or two he'd be making those massive blockbuster films he has been adoring since childhood.
      When he finally made the AVGN movie it turns out his talent peaked at internet videos and he was in no way cut out for making cinematic masterpieces. Unfortunately for him he has no other skills now besides making this shit and due to horribly mismanaged finances he can't quit either despite AVGN having its 20th anniversary soon.

          4 has no knockback, no falling through stairs, multi directional whipping through walls and magic water cheese all of which make it easy as frick whereas 1 had only the magic water cheese. there isn't even a contest here.

            Black person IV definitely has knockback.
            Stairs were made more fair than on 1 and 3 but still don't let you jump while on them, like you can on Rondo, Bloodlines. You can drop off them, and jump on them, both additions that were introduced on IV, but not jump. It was the last CV game that would have the stair mechanic still more similar to the 8bit games.

              oh.. I thought it didn't because it was so hard to get it any way as you can annihilate everything before it possesses you a threat (incl. bosses). 4 only starts to actually get good on the final boss rush in my opinion.

            In Rondo/Dracula X you can nullify knock back by ducking down just before getting hit, that’s what makes Dracula not too bad of a boss especially Dracula X Dracula with hopping between platforms.

      Difficulty is uncorrelated with the quality of a game. Said that, yeah he's a casual so is natural he has a preference for games that don't "cheese" you, you know, people who want to have a nice time with a game without being challenged too much.

        hey it's not like I'm a super sweaty gamer who likes only those games which busts my balls. It is just that castlevania IV is so boring, I really think the control scheme is good but the game never ramps up its difficulty to make it fun or challenging. I guess if one starts playing the franchise with IV they would find it great but people who have played I and III a lot would just find it disappointing as it isn't exactly indicative of the series they've grown up with.

        PC gamers are homosexuals for thinking quick saves are acceptable except as one time things when you're suddenly forced to take a break. They're so used to horrible non-game-design like this where the mechanics result in you interacting with the game in completely unnatural ways where you're not actually engaging a well defined challenge and instead have to 'nurse' poorly thought out and convoluted mechanics to "make shit your own".

    Probably the realest he's been in a long time. Not as good as say Earthbound or Majora's Mask since this is mostly a recap of Castlevania he did before and playing some games he might've missed and updating his opinion. He should do more visiting old games he missed or didn't play before and give a new perspective to them instead of trying to force anger like for that horse mobile game. That would probably mean dumping the angry persona he's cultivated for decades now. Doesn't mean he can't be angry at certain things in a game. Just not trying to fake anger it for jokes like he's done for a while.

      Egoraptor is a homosexual who hates Megaman X and sucks at the originals.

      Egoraptor never really said CV4 is a bad game, he just wanted to sound smart like he's a genius at video game analysis and design and mentioned ideas that could have been on CV4 but he failed because he never finished the game. On his game grumps playthrough he was filtered hard by Stage 8 (ironically because he refused to use sub weapons). The ideas he had for the game (using the grappling hook to traverse long sections) are actually on the next level, but he never knew it.
      He outright called IV a great game, but he never finished it and made a video critic about it with millions of view, and people/npcs who interpreted it as "4 bad".

        You're giving the moron too much credit. He was filtered into the section with the spike traps in the ceiling. The idiot didn't care to press right or left on the D-pad and figure out you can actually duckwalk safely beneath those spikes.

          Yeah but a lot of his deaths were on that section with the flying eyes and bine pillars, which can be dealt with easier with subweapons.
          He did give up after dying to the ceiling spikes, but I think he one went through them, not sure how. But then he died later and had to start over.
          To be faie Stage 8 is usually the big filter of 4 for new players, but it was pretty bold of him to make a critique video without having beat the game. Especially because as I said, the ideas he had were actually there on the next level and he never knew.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The way he words it might not be the best, but I think the justification for preferring IV is completely legit. The controlling of Simon's whip in IV really does feel fantastic and the entire game is played completely differently because of it. Every jump you do has a different sensation to it because you know you can whip at angles while doing it. It gives the player this feeling of freedom and power that they just don't have in the other games. When you play the other games from around that era and use a whip character, it feels really weird to suddenly not have that power and yet still see similar graphic fidelity. People equate it to making the game easier and yes of course the game would be harder if you couldn't whip in as many directions, but it also just feels great and it makes perfect sense for the weapon type. It finally felt like they were able to realize the whole point of the weapon as opposed to just using a sword or something else. It's a really liberating feeling and the game does a great job letting the player always have fun utilizing it. I've played through IV so many times throughout my life and I still have fun doing the swinging segments. It is probably the only Castlevania game where platforming is actually a genuinely enjoyable experience.

      In comparison, platforming is absolutely miserable with Morris in Bloodlines or Richter in Rondo. They are so stiff and awkward feeling and every jump is like a tightrope. Simon in IV is kinda like using Alucard in SotN. You feel good. You feel strong. You feel ready to fight. It's a wonderful feeling.

      • 3 weeks ago

        The whip being so good is the problem. the whip is so op in 4 that it makes the sub-weapons not as important -- which is a bad thing IMO.
        The jumping is stiff in the other classicvania's because you're supposed to take your time, it's not like Sonic or Mario where you can race to the end as quickly as possible.

    Portrait of Ruin. This is purely a personal opinion, as it was the first Castlevania I played, and I find myself returning to it frequently. I like the characters and the plot, and the environments are varied. Also, I prefer Castlevanias where the bosses are more traditional monsters instead of obscure demons or something, so having the final set of bosses be guys like the Wolf-Man or Mummy was cool.

      The franchise had a fantastic run of mostly great games. It is my favorite series and I am very happy that it can rest in peace. My problem is that they have not bothered to finish up collecting the games to tie them all together in a neat package. The franchise is still mostly stuck in emulation hell because of how crazy and random the releases were over the years. How is it that the PS2 and N64 games still aren't in a collection together? Are they really not going to try to figure out some way to port over the DS games even if it means figuring out ways to remove the touch screen elements?

    I get Sega is sort of cheating because the Smash Packs were easy to get to the roms, they had their program where you could just straight up buy roms off their website AND buying the genesis collection gives you the roms loose
    But for FRICKS SAKE
    WHY THE FRICK DO DEVELOPERS DO THIS SHIT
    Just let me buy the fricking roms from you and throw them in one of the extremely well done emulators.
    I shouldn't have to write my own fricking scripts to rip them out of your stupid archives meaning I might as well have gone to piracy.

      Yes but you should play the remake as a sort of intro to Rondo, once you find the original game within the game, stop playing the remake and forget about it, instead focus on 100% Rondo and try not to use Maria (save her for a later playthrough). Once you complete Rondo, the original, go back to 100%ing the remake (which is a lot longer and harder to do than the original). For an extra challenge, try to bead the boss rush, and get rewarded with one of the best unreleased Rondo tracks to use in the game in any stage you want.

      About this video, I'm disappointed with James' opinion that SOTN with Richter is fun. I agree with him about IV, but SOTN as Richter is a shallow experience since, in difference with the Classicvanias, SOTN doesn't really have much of platforming going on. Remember: you never die from falling from a pit on SOTN, not even underwater.
      It's clearly designed around Alucard and it's of a different genre than the Classicvanias. His complaints on Rondo are also kinda weird, he hates it because it's more designed around finding secrets than linear action. Okay, that's true and valid in a way but then he likes SOTN richter mode, come on. I get that doing Richter's moves is cool but the game really isn't designed for him. If anything it's a nice curious bonus mode like Maria on Saturn and PSP, but thinking these modes are anything but Knuckles Chaotix tier is dishonest with themselves.

          Yeah its a hidden item you find within one of levels.

          >IV definitely has knockback
          oh.. I thought it didn't because it was so hard to get it any way as you can annihilate everything before it possesses you a threat (incl. bosses). 4 only starts to actually get good on the final boss rush in my opinion.

          You probably haven't played IV recently or you would have remembered. The game is full of trap moments of bats ambushing you or skeletons jumping at you from an angle with a pit on your back. And the later levels habe stronger enemies that take 2 hits so they will most likely get you.
          I'll say, after playing all CV games a lot, IV remains one of the hardest to replay. Only the first set of levels are easy (but so are most other vanias). 1 is a challenge but once you master the game you can breeze through it pretty swiftly. IV, even mastered, still can frick you up a few times. I'm not a soeedrunner but they also say it's the hardest one to speedrun. More control handle also means higher skill ceiling.
          IV was definitely one of the hardest to beat without using any continue. I think only III, X and Bloodlines were any harder, or about the same in the case of Bloodlines.
          1 and Rondo are definitely easier as a seasoned player.
          All great games though.

            hard disagree. It may be hard to play because of how boring it is but it insanely easy. just had a playthrough a few months ago, it was a breeze and the only part where I had to use continues were the rotating room and slogra.
            >more control handle also means higher skill ceiling
            completely false, the game and its enemies aren't designed to accommodate the all direction whipping meaning you can kill enemies before they even activate. SC IV requires the least skill to complete and the "ceiling" is a meme which you don't even need to attain.

              Let's disagree then. I disagree that enemies aren't accounted for the diagonal whip when a big portion of them are bats flying at you in diagonal angles and skeletons jumping at you also in diagonal arcs.

                You can do something similar in the other games. Not whip upwards but in most cases you can cheese enemies like bone pillars or skeletons by climbing the stairs just enough to be able to hit them but they won't hit you.
                IMO IV gives you the illusion that it is easier because Simon feels almighty, but when closely compared to the other games, it's not really easier than the beloved Rondo, or even CV1 (1 is definitely harder on a blind playthrough, but not once you know the game).
                There are harder games in the series but IV isn't the one that was easier to me.

Mike was probably important in other things, but not the quality. I also always felt his presence was shady, compared to Bootsy and Kyle.

      Its purely his own fault, I think the movie made him realize he was in love with his own idea of what he thought movie making was and not so much the reality of it. That's when he went down hill, he lost his passion and just let morons around him(his wife and ryan namely) decide what to do since he is a borderline moron. He had plenty of chances to propel himself into something more, I think he realized at the end of the day he didn't really want it.

      He just does AVGN stuff now to pay the bills.

      A real AVGN movie would have been a simple comedic road trip movie with him and the classic cinemassacre group of Mike, Bootsy, and Kyle. Not the travesty it became.

                Let me spell it out for you moron-kun.

                Yeah figuring out there's a timing isn't some hardcore skill, timmy. It's still simple and easy to do. Again especially since there's no real stakes or risks in sotn, no bottomless pits.

                This post alleged that figuring out timing is not a hardcore skill, and referred to me as "timmy" (insinuation of being childlike, generally unskilled)

                Hmmm he was better at fighting games than Mike.
                Really you guys overestimate video games, they do not require superhuman skills. The fact many zoomers panic at NES games just makes them subhuman. James grew up playing NES, so yeah I think he's better at doing a simple as frick motion over than over than most of Ganker, but still not impressive or something super hardcore like you guys believe.

                His earlier post used a direct comparison to NES games to illustrate an example of games with focus on basic timing
                Therefore, I appended the fact that I beat Ninja Gaiden (NES) as a resume of my experience in this field.

                yea that's true. anyone can beat any game as long as they put enough hours into it.

          You cant dash a few frames after hitting a ceiling, this makes going fast as frail as frick richter difficult

          >no argument
          concession accepted

          Nathan has to double tap to run, has no backdash or divekick and long uncancelable whips, wall kicks, tackle.
          Juste has none of this and blitzes the frick out of everything

      It was a nice little callback to his annoyances with Castlevania 2’s Cryptic Bullshit as he calls it, he did talk about Maria being playable in Saturn SOTN and giving her a try next time so my copium says that he’ll follow up with that and maybe check out the handheld games maybe those others on PS2 etc.

    He's too autistic about the omnidirectional whip. It's definitely awesome and better than not having it, but it doesn't make the game better than Rondo of Blood, which is the best Classicvania (best Igavania being Aria of Sorrow)

    Yeah, Super Castlevania IV is a god tier combination of graphics, sound, and gameplay unsurpassed to this day.

    Unironically stunning and brave to dismiss length and difficulty, usually seen as crucial factors in a player getting his money's worth. It is the Holy Sonnet 10 of gaming.

    Fun fact, the main programmer of Super Castlevania IV later went on to make masterpieces like Gunstar Heroes, Astro Boy Omega Factor and his brainchild, Bangai O.
    All these games have the 8-directional inputs in common.

      I love me some Bangai-O (Missile Fury is my favorite), although I don't particularly care for Castlevania 4.

    What are some good Classicvanias besides Bloostained CotM? Especially 16-bit. Is CV Bloodlines, SC4, and Rondo STILL the peak of the genre?

      1, 3 and X68000 also enter the podium, all great.
      But yeah I don't think Classicvania has been topped past the retro era. i hear Rebirth was good but never played it.
      Speaking of Rebirth, which is a remale of The Adventure, the 2nd Castlevania GB game, Belmont's Revenge, is pretty solid and shouldn't be overlooked.

      SC4 is legit garbage, James is fricking moronic and the fact he put SotN's Richter mode above Rondo should've clued you in on that
      3 is the absolute peak of the series, but Bloodlines, Rondo, X68000, Belmont's Revenge and The Adventure ReBirth are all top tier

        Bloodlines was mid to me. Weak whip game, finicky platforming, too much easy mid-bosses, boring level designs with hallways and no platforming, and for Blast Processing, slowdown as a bonus.
        Rondo, IV, X68K, 1 and 3 are all better.

    Did Rebirth ever come off of the Wii, or am I stuck hitting up Dolphin for that?

    Classic: 1, 3, Rondo both PCE and PSP, X68000/Chronicles

    Bloodlines is OK but it has some frustrating difficulty issues that makes it less replayable.

    Igavania: SotN, Aria, Dawn (especially Julius mode), Portrait

    Pretty much all of the Igavanias are worth playing though except for Circle and Harmony. Those two are fricking garbage.
