Title: Which Castlevania games do you have yet to defeat?
Post by: Lumi Kløvstad on February 27, 2017, 07:25:11 PM
For me, it's mostly spin-off stuff like Vampire Killer MSX, Haunted Castle, etc. As far as main entries go, I never actually completed Super Castlevania 4 as I burned out after a super long string of late-game failures. Also have not yet beaten Castlevania X6800 (I did beat Chronicles on easy though. ONCE.). I've beaten Bloodlines, but only with cheats, and some day I plan to kick its ass legit. Oh, and Legends. I never actually finished Legends.

What about you guys?

Vampire Killer MSX

^^^
This. I've yet to beat this game. It's the only one that remains undefeated by me. I'm not counting the LoS games as they aren't CV in my book. So it's just Vampire Killer MSX that needs to be taken down.

Let's see... I have to beat Vampire Killer MSX, Haunted Castle, all the Game Boy Castlevanias, Dracula X SNES, Legacy of Darkness, Curse of Darkness, any Metroidvania not named SoTN or Order of Ecclesia, Kid Dracula (both version), Harmony of Despair, Castlevania II, Mirror of Fate (not gonna do it anytime soon) and LoS2 (not gonna do it anytime soon).  It's gonna take a while prolly.

I still have to finish the last stage of Rondo with Richter, last stage of AR and LOS2. The rest like Vampire Killer, Kid Dracula and the more obscure titles like the old GB ones, I'm not going to bother with.

I need to beat lots of Castlevania games but most of them are classic-vanias and I am bad at them :)

Castlevania
Castlevania III Dracula's Curse
Castlevania 64
Castlevania Legends
Castlevania Belmont's Revenge
Castlevania The Adventure
Castlevania Legacy of Darkness
Castlevania Lament of Innocence
Castlevania Curse of Darkness
Castlevania Judgement
"Castlevania" Haunted Castle
Castlevania Rondo of Blood
Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles
Castlevania Vampires Kiss / Dracula X
Super Castlevania 4
Castlevania Bloodlines
Castlevania The Lecarde Chronicles (Not Konami but it SHOULD BE!!!)

I have played ALL of the above but never beaten them!!! I prefer the metroidvanias more :) Pfffff need to sit and play more Curse of Darkness, Lament of Innocence (Need to get my PS2 emulator and controller) and need to practice more on Lecarde Chronicles.

SNES Dracula X - I don't even own it...I haven't seen it sell for a decent price, ever. Rondo is good enough for me.
Vampire Killer - I once load/save-stated my way through it, but never beat it fair and square. I don't think I have the patience for it, either.
Kid Dracula - I want to come back to it eventually, but I remember being kind of turned off from it when I first played. It just seems really slow.

You can get second hand Dracula X's with the cart alone for a decent amount. Just search ebay.

Haven't beaten the ones for N64 just due to them being unplayable garbage, and MoF remains unbeaten because I just can't bring myself to finish it.

Just looked to see what kind of prices they were selling for, and the cheapest one I could find was cart only $115 (not counting reproduction carts or sellers from China).

I think the lowest price I've seen it at is $70 for cart only, and that was at a regional chain that prices pretty fairly (Vintage Stock). I had to pass when I saw it though, since I'm not overly fond of the game, and I was still hoping for a boxed copy (before I realized how batshit insanely high they are priced at).

There are carts where they've replaced certain components I've seen for cheaper, but they're not in original condition.

As much as I love the game I wouldn't ever pay ebay prices for it.

None of the Lords of Shadows series, Rebirth, Judgment, Dracula X Chronicles, it's is ridiculous I can play them but DXC cause I don't own a PSP

If you have A PSVita you can download it. I did that even though I have it on PSP already.

Yeah I heard the psvita is backward compatible with psp only digital games, now Bloodstained is going to released for it, i'll save some money and buy it, thanks. I just remembered I haven't played Castlevania The Arcade does anyone know if this game is going to be ported someday or has been emulated already?

Vampire Killer, Bloodlines, LoI, CoD, all of the DS games, never played MoF or LoS2.
Title: Re: Which Castlevania games do you have yet to defeat?
Post by: Ratty on March 15, 2017, 09:23:21 PM
I've yet to beat:

Vampire Killer (MSX)
Bloodlines - Probably never will beat this one legitimately because the limited continue/save system is more frustrating than fun for me.
Adventure
Adventure ReBirth - No Wii
Judgement
Haunted Castle
Curse of Darkness - I was playing it when a family tragedy struck years ago and I stopped. Haven't been able to pick it up again and finish it since.
Order of Ecclesia - I needed to give away my DS as a birthday gift before I got to play through this one. Just need to get a new DS sometime. What I did play of it before though was 1. Good & 2. kicked by butt  ;D

Also the LoS games, the Pachislot "games", the ancient mobile phone game and that one rail shooter-with-a-whip arcade game. Most of which I probably won't even ever see in person.

Order of Ecclesia is kicking my ass lol any other game u haven't beat I probably haven't started yet.

I have pretty much beaten every castlevania game I have gotten my hands on besides 2,

1.Lords of shadow 1 -  Played it to I got to the butcher fight, afterwards great incredibly bored and detached from it since it did not feel like Castlevania in the slightest, opted to read the rest of the story online rather than play through the entire game.

2.Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate - played it to I got to the Alucard part of the game, reason why i did not continue further same as above.

To be honest I only finished LOS2 because at the time I had no other games worth playing.

Oh man. Thanks for reminding me about Harmony of Dissonance, pfft. I had a nearly completed playthrough on my computer, but then it had to be sent in for repairs. I guess the file's just been sitting there for... has it really been a year since then? Whoops.
I need to beat Legends, too. The music was very fun to play to, but I'm not very good with the older CV gameplay :'D

SNES Dracula X - I don't even own it...I haven't seen it sell for a decent price, ever. Rondo is good enough for me.

For what it's worth, it's available on Nintendo's eshop for Wii U and 3DS, so the original cart isn't a necessity anymore. One of my favorite games, actually. Though if one goes in expecting it to be a continuation of Rondo, it's not. It's more old school.

As for my list of unbeaten games...

I have not played (and therefore not beaten) the following:
Vampire Killer MSX
Haunted Castle
Mirror of Fate
Lords of Shadow 2
Order of Ecclesia
Order of Shadows
Harmony of Despair
Kid Dracula

I have played but not beaten:
Bloodlines (I've only gotten to play it a handful of times, but I think it's great. Got to the last level with Eric, IIRC).

let's not start this crap again.  if you don't like it, just leave it at that.  there are plenty of people who do and don't rip on what you like, even THAT game.  yes, everybody has THAT game. :rollseyes:

I think the lowest price I've seen it at is $70 for cart only, and that was at a regional chain that prices pretty fairly (Vintage Stock).
we have a few vintage stock stores here, they are wonderous rip off artists, cashing in on the nostalgia craze.  when i worked at game xchange, i heard stories about how they spray painted a final fantasy cart gold and tried to sell it for $200.  there was also one time they sold me a busted PSP, i brought it back and bought another six months later and it was the SAME busted one.  recently a tornado ripped through their storefront, so i guess that's some sort of karmatic justic for all the people they've ripped off.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANYHOW, i've beaten everything aside from the arcade (not to be confused with haunted castle), due to lack of availability.  the pachinko games shouldn't really count, since they just slapped the name on it to make their bogus machines look more attractive...

I still need to play and beat Lords of Shadows 2 and Boku Dracula-kun

The irony.

But yeah, they shouldn't count because you can't really "win" at pachislots

Post by: theANdROId on August 27, 2017, 08:11:46 PM
*sigh* Most of them.  It'd be easier to list the ones I have beaten:
-- CV 1
-- CV 2
-- CV 3 (if it's okay that I cheated.  I haven't done it without cheating)
-- SotN
-- CV 64 (If you count that I actually beat LoD, which is nearly identical)
-- LoD
-- CotM
-- HoD
-- AoS
-- DoS
-- PoR
-- LoI
-- CoD
-- OoE
-- MoF

I think that's all (that actually looks a little better than I was expecting).  I have the other two Lords titles, but haven't finished them.  I don't have access to any others, or systems to play them on.

I still have to play the GBA games except for AOS and the DS games (I'm halfway through Order Of Ecclesia atm and i'm really liking it.)
I'm waiting for the SNES mini to play SC4, which should be really interesting with those different whip mechanics

I'm sadly another one with a huge list of unplayed and unfinished games, both for a lack of time and a lack of skill, on the bright side this gives me a lot of stuff to do on my free time.

(click to show/hide)

By unfinished I mean I didn't advance too much ion the game or I can't recall how much I advanced, so I probably will start over next time I decide to play them. I'll take the chance and use this list to keep track of my progress so I'll be editing it once in a while.

Actually if you've made it to the chandlers room (part of stage 6) in SCV4 then your right in the middle of the game.

Those are good news! Hope to jump back on it as soon as I get more free time!

None.
Beat Vampire Killer MSX in 2017 through emulators as a perfect finale of my Castlevania journey then there're no other official obstacles I can make a plan to actually sit there and beat it classic style.

All of them, sans Aria, Dawn, Circle of the Moon, and Portrait. Currently playing Ecclesia.

I really want to get my hands on Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night; I heard these are part of a game called Dracula X Chronicles? I might go with that, even though I don't have my PSP on hand anymore ;_;
Title: Re: Which Castlevania games do you have yet to defeat?

- Vampire Killer
- Order of Shadows
- The Arcade
- Mirror of Fate

If you have a PSVita or PS4 you can download The Dracula X Chronicles. I'd recommend it.

Hmm... Well if it's not available for the PS4 then try the Vita. That's if you have one of course.

Update: close to a year after I made this thread, I finally beat Vampire Killer MSX. Honestly, after how tedious that was, I don't regret Save State Spamming my way to victory. Even doing that, it was plenty annoying.

Check another one off the list for me!

Congratz! I've never gotten past stage II. And if you feel the need to save state, then I say go for it. There's no shame in putting a game in its place.
