General Castlevania Discussion / Re: Castlevania ReBirth for newbies
« Last post by Eric Roman on June 27, 2024, 01:33:20 PM »
I thought it was interesting how Konami decided to remaster their Game Boy launch titles for WiiWare (I thoroughly enjoyed Nemesis/Gradius ReBirth), but using the soundtable from Arcade Super C to render misplaced covers of known CV songs was just...ugh by my late 2000s expectations; probably an indication this wasn't exactly for me as I'd come to expect better/fresher compositionally--perhaps I missed the point.

Maybe this was aimed at the set for whom the Wii was their earliest gaming experience, as Adventure was for me on Game Boy. 

Also, I didn't get to owning a Wii (since the authenticity of the Virtual Console turned out to be dealbreaking falsehood) so I didn't get a chance to play ReBirth enough to learn to love it.  As I recall it did pull off some interesting things with the source material, however.

I just got a Wii and was wondering if there's any "official" way I can get to play Rebirth?

We had a chance to redo the character mugshot graphics where the original edition was having problems with them (in original, they were cropped instead of properly sprited)

But I shouldn't grind my comrade in this case because he has his own life schedules.

If any of you guys could do very large mugshot sprites, allocate me for more details.

It’s both incredibly dumb & hilarious that the devs decided to call the city in Lords of Shadow 2 “Castlevania City”

like, what lol. It’s not even a clever play on words. Imagine if IGA named the town in OoE “Belmont Village”

Yeah, he seems to be phoning it in at this point.

As much as I hate to say it, I think people are correct when they say Mike Matei was more of a driving force of the channel than people realized.

Based on the context, this refers to making the sign of the cross since the location is a graveyard as Catholics will make said sign when passing a cemetery.

を is a particle for signifying the object of a sentence not the location.


I'm with the "Don't wait until night" translation. It's castlevania, it's got to be a warning.  But this is just my opinion.
