I'm not surprised that you like those tracks.  I'm glad somebody does.  It's strangely comforting to me that I can come back to these forums some 20 years later and still find you raving about Skinny Puppy.   ;D

Just in time for Halloween 🎃

Wallachia: Reign of Dracula is back on the Nintendo eShop!

Stick it to Dracula in style this Halloween in Elcin's uniform or Miriam's dress from Bloodstained!

If you are interested in our upcoming Metroidvania, Chronicles of the Wolf, we highly recommend playing Wallachia first as it's prelude.

Thanks everyone and have a Happy Halloween this year!

I also loved Neon.  I'm only a borderline Double Dragon fan, but Neon is one of my favorite games from the last generation.  Mostly because of all the 80s fanservice, the sense of humor, and the gorgeous Genzoman artwork, but I think the gameplay is pretty solid too.

I haven't played Gaiden yet.  My copy is delayed because I ordered it along with the Double Dragon Collection, which doesn't  release for another week and a half.

Do people doubt the greatness of POR and OOE? Those are top-tier gameage.

I'd throw in LOI and COD. The latter gets flak but it's damn good once you look past the flaws.

Finally, some common sense in this godforsaken thread. Netflixvania has a myriad of issues, and the fact that some of the characters are no longer white or straight is by far the least of them.

It frustrates me beyond words that because I don't like the Netflix show, I end up getting lumped in with these reactionaries who can't stop pissing and shitting themselves about Muh Blacks and Muh Gays. I'm not mad that the show is "woke", I'm mad because I'm deeply autistic about Castlevania and have impossibly high standards for what a good adaptation of the games should look like!  :P

Crazy that Castlevania stopped being good in like, 2005.
Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia are good games, goddammit! I WILL die on this hill!

Can't believe that what's disappointed many of you seems to be such petty issues. Social justice discussion in my Castlevania? weirdos in my Castlevania? It would make less sense not to include them considering it's a series about supernatural monsters and the societal exiles fated to hunt them.
 That's all besides the point though, this Castlevania just sucks. I don't want any Castlevania that sucks and that's why it upsets me. Like JR said, it needs Belmonts doing cool shit. And it uh, needs to be animated well. More monsters too? Castlevania has only ever had like, a handful of vampires in it as a game series. I don't like the idea of it becoming a "vampire IP".

Crazy that Castlevania stopped being good in like, 2005. Is that the price we pay for the back-to-back masterpiece releases from 86-97?


This is why they chose the all-inclusive setting of TRANSylvania…. ⛳️ 👏🏽

first of all, what a completely useless comment. nothing you've said in this thread has been of value, and it's like you're just inserting buzzwords to get noticed. or rather, you think about these things so much and blame them for everything that goes wrong that you can't help but bring it up when you're mad about Castlevania. you should feel embarrassed, you know there are trans people using this forum this very moment? I hope every animated Belmont in the future transitions three times and talks about their experience and struggles at length just so you can't ever get it out of your head.

this forum isn't your centralized social media where everyone is playing for a crowd. we're not a group of strangers you can forgo all social etiquette with.
this is the last goddamned place on the internet i like specifically because i can come here without seeing large amounts of people blame my identity for all of the issues they and their society grapple with. there's nothing i can do about it, the algorithms know what i am and are sure i want to see that vile hatred because it has something to do with me. I'm so tired of it, and I'm sure a lot of people here have similar topics that they know they can avoid when they're here.

this is a place for peace.

Silent Hill 2 has awesome music, but too much of the OST is awful cacaphonic noise that I can't get behind.

Partly why it and Silent Hill 3 are two of my top favorite OSTs. Industrial goodness. They're not nearly as noisy as SH1, at least—that soundtrack actually kinda scares me a little when listening outside of the game.
I just got Double Dragon Gaiden. Such a huge Double Dragon nerd that I'll pick anything up that has the name on it (even the abysmal DD2 "remake" a while back. Still played all the way through, lol). It was pretty good. Glad to see they're keeping an interest in a game that practically created the beat-em-up genre, but one that barely anyone remembers.

I loved DD Neon

It’s up there. Top 5 for sure, up there with FFVII, Alundra and Guardian Heroes for me personally.

Lost Painting is one of the best tracks to ever grace a video game.

SOTN’s soundtrack fits together very well (when the player transitions from area to area), which is as difficult as having a boss OST.

I don't even mind the idea of the series getting the so-called "Netflix treatment" tbh.

But can we at least get some more goddamn source material in there somewhere? Can we see more focus on the Belmonts doing cool shit, like in the games?
