General Castlevania Discussion / Re: What is your biggest Castlevania achievment?

Having my little Castlevania lore channel be as known as it is. I started it just to indulge my own love of the story of the games while also exploring theories I've had within the lore of the games for years. It's still incredibly small, but every time someone from Discord or whatever is like "Oh, you're the one that does that lore channel!" makes me feel good.

Also, having NintendoLife link to my article on the CV wiki for the Bloodlines prototype, after the leak of the prototype was discovered. Small but a nice little dopamine hit.
Prediction: SK is going to slash Griffith/ Moonlight Child mid-transformation with the Sword of Actuation to separate the two from existing as one being…
I want to hope. I really do. But Netflix isn't exactly a house of great repute when it comes to producing quality adaptations, and I've been hurt so much and so often by them (multiple times with this brand alone!). At this point my patience with Netflix has worn raw, and I doubt anything they promised would get me hyped because I've heard many such promises before. I want to hope and hype, but I'm simply too tired to make the attempt anymore.

Plot is at it again. Good job!
Can't wait for more GoT with vampires, tasteless edgy swearing and unfunny jokes, pointless character race swaps, political agendas, boring fillers, one-dimensional original characters with no weight on the story, terrible audio mastering and generic soundtrack, sloppy animation, and overall misunderstanding and rape of the source material.

Call me a pessimist, but even without Ellis, I have no hope of it being any good. The first 4 seasons, where everything that could go wrong went wrong, left such a bad taste in my mouth, nothing related to this shitshow can make me feel excited. I still consider Netflixvania to be the worst thing that happened to the franchise (yes, even EROTIC VIOLENCE pachislot had more class and felt like Castlevania). And people call it the best video game adaptation, jeez.

They didn't care to even write the correct game names in the description: "Symphony of Night and Blood of Rondo"? Come on!
I'll give it a watch, but no way in hell I'm giving Netflix any money for this.
I made it through Haunted Castle in one life at a friend's house with an original board connected to a supergun. It wasn't the hard version but it was still a bit unbelievable. I barely trained, making it after a few tries without paying much attention. I didn't even plan on playing it seriously that night, it was just for showing off the game to us.

The latest version added some sort of collision protection trigger so the "touch the wall and died" Gradius syndrome is now a mere history for easy and normal. Yeah it's a welcome change!

It seems that Android version was also planned but eventualy abandoned. A console port is possible?

So it seems that the port is gonna be a real deal. At first I thought the Switch would be burnt down or something. (The optimization for steam version is still pretty bad.)
Best wishes to them and hope there would be better optimization for steam version too.

Definitely going to take a wait and see approach after fully watching the previous series.   

I wasn’t a huge fan with some of the liberties taken but having a new writer makes me cautiously optimistic for how this can turn out. I’m a bit weary though, if this ends up being a continuation of the previous storyline considering where it ended.

I think it looks okay, but the look of the show was probably the bit I had the least amount of issues with. It's all about the writing.

No Warren Ellis means no comic book writing packed to the gills with random profanity, but I'm not familiar with the work of the new writer to determine if he grasps the series and its tone. If it sounds like The Witcher with vampires again, it's another take that misses pretty strongly when it goes in that direction hard.
