Since starting sometime in the spring and I will soon finish playing through all 2D Cv's except for MSX Vampire Killer, arcade Haunted Castle, that phone Order of Shadows, and haven't replayed with all the alternate characters in games.  I just gotta finish my replay of Order of Ecclesia.  I did heavily abuse use of save states in SNES Drac X and GB Cv Adventure and used them for a few other games.  But I beat most games on actual systems.

Probably Aria, since I went back and replayed the other 2 GBA games a while back. Maybe Bloodlines, too, since that one is always fun. I could always have a go at Kid Dracula (only played it to make sure it worked).

Beyond that, I'll probably round the rest of the month out with horror games. Like maybe Amnesia, Personal Nightmare...some stuff that's just sitting on my Steam/GOG accounts that I haven't gotten to yet.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

Finished my replay of Ecclesia.  Maybe I'll finish reading the Historian by Elizabeth Kostova in the next couple weeks.  At just about the midpoint now.

Have you read Stoker's Manuscript, written by Royce Prouty? I didn't enjoy it as much as The Historian but I still do recommend it. It's written in the same vein with a somewhat similar plot.

I've started a bunch of runs in various CV games but haven't finished them, so maybe that'll be what I do this month in between playing BlazBlue CP and Catherine with my gf. I'm in the middle of a Richter run in SoTN (and actually I think I had a Maria run I didn't finish so I should get to that) as well as being in the Castle Center in CV64. LOVE that game, I still think those are the best 3D CV games even if they have their rough spots.

I was playing Splatterhouse a bunch last year too.



I popped "Symphony of the Night" into my Playstation and started a new game, a Luck Mode run. This time I decided to see if I could cheat death and I did, for the first time! It wasn't that hard, I just jumped over the third Warg in the room before, unequipped everything, and jumped into his face. It's so nice to play with the Alucard equipment right from the top! It does kind of kill the already forgiving difficulty, but it makes it easier to explore.

IMO Luck Mode is the best way to play SoTN, especially if you sandbag against Drac in the beginning and don't get the good stats. Keeps the game challenging for a bit longer and it's kind of nice not to be able to tank with Alucard, especially against some of the early bosses.

Well, eh, I saw Dracula Untold with my dad last friday (my wife didn´t like such movies), so that´s the way I start my October :).

I haven´t play too much Castlevania lately. The last week I played and ended Megaman 5, 4 and 6, in that order. I failed in Megaman 3, but maybe is the fact that I want to play something different at the time. The past weekend I played the LoS 2 demo. I really want to buy the game, but I expect that the price is lower soon (I waited for Arkham Origins and I buyed it for $19.99 with Season Pass included ;D).

In the October scenario, I played this week Lollipop Chainsaw 8). I just ended this morning, and I liked a lot (specially the music).

For Castlevania in the next days, I planed to play the Dracula´s Battle from Curse of Darkness, and then start a new game, only to see the story and play and hear Abandonned Castle :D.

Maybe I see Braham Stoker´s Dracula movie again...

I think I'll stick with just having a birthday and a baby ;-P  Maybe some Gauntlet if I can fit it in.

Finished my replay of Ecclesia.  Maybe I'll finish reading the Historian by Elizabeth Kostova in the next couple weeks.  At just about the midpoint now.

  I'm currently on a re-read of The Historian myself.  It's a wonderful book.

Have you read Stoker's Manuscript, written by Royce Prouty? I didn't enjoy it as much as The Historian but I still do recommend it. It's written in the same vein with a somewhat similar plot.

  I might have to check this one out as well.

  I wish that I could finish Vlad: The Last Confession, I've recently tried to go back to it, but am just finding it a bit slow.  Next week, Anne Rice's return to The Vampire Chronicles, Prince Lestat, is out, so I'll pick up a copy of that.  I'm also re-playing LoS2, and am up to Carmilla's actual boss fight.  I really fancy revisiiting Aria at some point, if I have the time.

That's a good idea!  I think I'm gonna do that now!  I don't know what anyone else thought of him, but I LOVED Pumpkin!  Even the constant squeaking as he walked...it was hilarious!

I've started getting into streaming stuff. Maybe I should consider a Halloween stream of some Castlevanias? Does that sound like it would interest anyone?

Just to be clear I'm not particularly great in general at Castlevania games (at least the old tough ones). Don't expect power play. But I could at least talk to you guys while doing so.
