Castlevania 3 is the shit. It's almost a perfect game. Just the right amount of challenge. Unlike Castlevania 2....which is so fucking hard that I wonder if it was botched somehow. I never made ANY progress with that game...and I beat THE SHIT out of Metroid and Super Metroid..
I'm fairly certain, unless you had the Nintendo Power magazine with the clue in it, you would never figure out you need to equip that certain item and crouch on that certain ledge in order to progress further.
How can you concentrate of level patterns when you're shreddin' air guitar breh?
That was the only issue with Castlevania 2. If you new that, you could beat the game in a single play session(a couple hours). There were multiple endings based on how long it took you to beat it. Outside of the b.s. crouching thing, it is my favorite NES Castelvania, by far.
Oh yes I still love Castlevania 2. It contains my favourite musical track, Bloody Tears, from the entire series of games.
I loved it so much as a kid I even had the handheld Tiger version of it! It made no sense whatsoever.
My mother thought my brothers and I loved those Tiger games, so we each got one every year for a good five years. Worst gifts ever, especially since we were too poor to have batteries on hand. Played them for a few hours, IF the game was remotely playable, and then put it aside when it died out -- never to play it again.
Before I got a Game Boy, all I had was the Sonic the Hedgehog fake Tiger game. Sonic's frozen statuesque body could only teleport to the side, or leap up for a single frame of glorious jumpability.
When I think about Tiger stuff, the proliferation of dumb touchscreen smartphone games seems not so bad. Today's kids won't have to experience the horrors of LCD Double Dribble.
Nice. I actually put Bloody Tears on a Halloween mix I made last year. My wife thought it was Crystal Castles(the band) or something new that just came out.
Might as well post it:
Just wanted to get one for my son for the holidays. Scalpers immediately put them all on ebay, Amazon wasn't working, and people lined up for it.
I just ... I'd say Nintendo should get their shit together, but this is intentional. It is what they're known for, and it is irritating.
Four or five months ago I sold my Nintendo Gamecube component cable, the gamecube, and four or five games for 399.99.
The component cable was 200-250 of that value. Just because Nintendo undeproduced the living shit out of it. This strategy/problem is decades old for them.
Everyone hitting F5 at work when Amazon went live audibly cussed out when Amazon logged them out, prompting frantic keyboard mashing, and then the cruel twist of being able to add the fucker to the cart but not adding it to the cart.
Nintendo should have halted Wii U production months ago and ramped up Classic Nintendo units instead.
I already own many of the games I like for this from Wii store purchases. However, if they do this for the SNES I will be all over that like a lunatic. I chose Sega instead in my youth so I missed out on so many great SNES games. Or an N64 version? Take whatever you want from me Nintendo.
LOL, the component cable value thing is ridiculous. I got a ghetto 10$ component cable for Wii (which plays all Gamecube games and has 4 GC controller ports) from Gamestop that looks fine on my HDTV. Supposedly the signal quality on the original GC component cable is slightly better...I don't really see how much better it could be. It's 480p, it ain't gonna blow your balls off no matter how you look at it.
Or you could just emulate the games in Dolphin, set it to 640x480, and youd have an even more perfect 480p signal. Drop a few bucks on a controller adapter for USB and you're all set.
Umm, this is the cheapest one on ebay at the moment for "buy it now."
Btw: hop 2 lavas, hop 1, hop 1, swim. Can't believe I remembered that for SMB 1. If you know what down, forward, back, back, high kick is...without google, I'd probably drink with you. If you google it, I'd probably work with you.
That's standard composite, for an interlaced signal. The special one in question that was sold seperately is component, which is progressive. It doesn't work on standard tube TVs, unless it is a 'monitor' type that has progressive component inputs.
Edit: Durrrr already answered.
Anyways, I still want the new NES controller.
