and with that comes Halloween & all the creepy stuff in our society. so which castlevania game(s) will you be replaying during this season? anybody planning on doing a cv marathon on halloween which lands on a Friday? or perhaps dressing up as a character

i feel another annual run thru of Super castlevania IV & Symphony is appropriate. those games are truly timeless & capture the atmosphere of All Hallows Eve perfectly, prunyuu~

At Yale, halloween is quite a scene...there are big parties and costume bashes everywhere. It's mainly an undergraduate thing, though...me, I'll be spending October like I do every other month: Sitting in my dorm room surfing the CVD 8)

CV2 (an annual October tradition) and Belmont's Revenge. I've never played BR before.

Gonna be hitting up Lament of Innocence again since it has the creepiest atmosphere. Though some of the shit in Mirror of Fate, like the guy who found out he was eating some other dude's leg, that really sends shivers.

Right now I'm playing through Legacy of Darkness for the first time. Bought it and CV64 on ebay.

Most of the summer I've been playing the games. Usually multiple times. 1-4, Rondo, Dracula X. I've wanted to play Chronicles and Symphony, but unable to for the moment. Hopefully that will change soon.

I'm sure I'll play some CV games but I won't be dressing up as anything CV related. I'm trying to get two of my friends to dress up as the trailer park boys with me

Who knows... I might surf the dungeon for a time before hitting up the classic CV games. Both CV II and LoD sound like the traditional Halloween CV treats.  :)

I'm thinking Luigi's Mansion 2 all the way, cause it's sitting on my shelf waiting for the right moment... but I think I could run through Dracula's Curse too, which is the CV I associate the most with Halloween. It's like how I ALWAYS think of christmas when I play a Zelda game. Some franchises just have a special day/holiday attached to them, and it harkens back to my childhood, I guess.

Last year I think I played through 5 Castlevanias during October and not a week ago I beat Castlevania Chronicles (original and arrange mode) so I'm not sure which if any Castlevania(s) I'll play through this year. Though it's possible I may play some horror games, like Silent Hill has more or less just been gathering dust in my collection for about 4 years. Maybe I'll sit down and finally beat the Castlevania clone "Master of Darkness" on the Master System, for the most part that's a pretty easy game I just get bored with it.

Symphony of the Night is my annual play-through.  8) I will get the Crissaegrim this time. Mirror of Fate and Chronicles are on the list too.

CV64 looks kinda cool.

CV 64 is really rough around the edges and takes some getting used to, but in terms of a 3D CV game transition it's perhaps the most successful when lined up against Lament of innocence and Curse of Darkness.

I'm starting my second run-through ever of OoE today. I'll probably also do a SOTN luck run, cos I did that last month and it was really fun! Are there any other CV games with luck modes like this?

Thief mode in Circle of the Moon?  But you have to go through Normal, Magician, Fighter, and Shooter modes first or get someone's save data with it enabled.  So far I've just cleared Normal and Magician, and started Fighter.

I plan to finish up my chronological viewing of CV longplays (which I started last October with LoI) before October. I've finish all of the actual story games (ending with DoS) and am currently going through the True Story Modes of various characters in Judgment, and I'll end with Aeon. That should be it (unless I want to watch Harmony of Despair, but I believe those have no storylines; someone please let me know).

The big question is which series to do a chronological viewing of next. I'm considering Mario, Mega Man, and Zelda, and each are huge franchises.
