    Castlevania: WHAT IS A MAN?



    Castlevania. The story of those who fight Dracula to keep his evil from engulfing the world. I'm sure a lot of people are familiar with the games. Anyway, discuss all things pertaining to it here. The games, novels, and anything else. Not to mention the hilariously bad voice acting.

    People do realize there are other Castlevania games other than Symphony of the Night, right?

    Oh, and I feel I should point out that the infamous "What is a man?" quote isn't some hilarious bungle on the part of the localization team or anything. That's a reference to Andre Malraux. Somehow. Guess Dracula traveled through time to read all the books so he could be the most cultured.

    Aria of Sorrow

    Order of Ecclesia

    Dawn of Sorrow

    Symphony of the Night

    Lament of Innocence

    Legacy of Darkness

    Those are the one's I played, anyway. I just chose SOTN as the OP because it was one of the most influential.

    It was too old and no one replied to it in like three years.

    Didn't feel like necro-ing it.

    I was referring to Richter's va.

    Dracula's I actually liked.

    Why not. Time travel is canonical after all.

    I mean seriously, Richter's va was so bad; endearingly so.

    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Has anyone else played that one 3D castlevania with Hector, the vampire-blacksmith? I quite liked that one, especially since one of the weapons was seriously the Power Glove.

    Castlevania is the main focus of my game collecting. I've been working on getting them all CIB, and am maybe 70% finished with the US side.

    Castlevania: Ricordanza of the God's Abyss, light novel. It's a sequel to Aria/Dawn or Sorrow. Soma makes a cameo apperance and it's written by the same guy behind Durarara.

    *record scratch* Ooooh.You have my gratitude. The Castlevania games I've played & finished are:

    - Castlevania III Dracula's Curse (f**k you stairs! f**k you Medusa heads! -Dies again- [email protected]%#^K!)

    - Aria of Sorrow (Pimpin' white coat absorbs blood & souls perfectly)

    - Symphony of the Night (Enough Meme's...have at thee!)

    (Also love Ys...but that story is for another day)

    - Castlevania Legends (What is it w/ them & their hatred for female protagonists & canon continuity? Her & Alucard's love child would have been an interesting origin)

    - Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (Back flippin', item crashin' vampire hunter...should really try the PSP remake too)

    - Circle of the Moon (I'll use my magic card!)

    - Harmony Of Dissonance (Alucard must have been waking up every now & then to bone a female Belmont. Also furniture & good room designing gets all the 17th century ladies)

    Order of Ecclesia, Dawn of Sorrow & Portrait Of Ruin is in my gaming backlog...which just keeps growing. No interest on any 3D Castlevania (tried the C64 ones & is reminded of the Castlevania fighting game *shakes fist*) but maybe someday.

    I like how Death is such a bro in the light novel.

    Also, I remember playing Circle of the Moon when I was like in grade school. I just started Harmony of Dissonance, Juste looks so much like Alucard or his long lost twin or something. Makes me think Alucard got freaky with a Belmont somewhere down the line.

    Simon's Quest was actually pretty good, when you were eight.

    Also never managaged to beat Dracula in original Castevania. Too much bullshit with knife or shuriken, and I couldn't beat Death with za warudo. Had to be shuriken, which actually got the projectiles out of the way.
    I've beaten Touhou extra bosses and they got NOTHING on Death.

    He got his share of woes as with other players, but it has been overwhelmed by the sheer amount of different SSRs, both as F2P and P2P.

    I don't even wish to stand beside him as I got 2 consecutive IRs at my work the very same month after I got Jeanne.

    Just beat lords of shadow 2. Holy damn that was a shitty final fight. Lords of Shadow 1 had a much better last boss fight. Also, the story wasn't very good.
