2D's not dead mother fucker!!!
anyone else gonna pick up this pixellated masterpiece that comes out today?
I think I might pick it up, when I see it around here, looks good
if you pick it up can you tell us how it is?, cheers
I thought that the UK actually got Castlevania before us this time around... no? I'll pick it up if I can today, but today (4th) is shipping day, so chances are most stores won't carry it until tomorrow.Originally Posted by cartoonfox
I just picked it up today. So far so good. The color schemes, animation, backgrounds, and music seem superior to the GBA Castlevanias in every way. There are a lot more minute details sprinkled throughout. Too bad carpal tunnel keeps me from being able to play more than 45 minutes at a time. At any rate, if what I've played so far is any indication this one will definately blow away CotM, HoD, and AoS. Now if they would start making these 2-D adventure games for consoles again...
there is a new mario brothers DS game coming out that is a 2D side scroller using 3D models.. looks cool to me!
do you think it'll be as good as the old school ones?
oh yeah, this games rocks big time. The whole reason I got a DS in the first place was for this badboy. The stylus isnt used all that much, but when it is, its pretty sweet, like being able to scrape away ice blocks, or drawing in runes that are required to defeat a boss with. I also heard that Alucard becomes a playable character in this one......
This game is awesome so far! --- I'm a good 4 hours in, but I don't wanna complete it yet ---- gonna spend some hours tracking down all the little hidden things (who needs sleep right?)
They really cranked up the visuals... the GBA ones were pretty and really pushed the GBA --- but they're actually using sprites from Symphony on this one, and the resolution is only like a 15 pixel difference ---- So yea, looks damn fine
The difficulty is a nice ballance - about what Aria was ... I haven't been leveling up like crazy so some bosses have gotten too me ...... The zombie-dino boss is classic

Yeah, that's the best Castlevania boss since Granfaloon in SoTN. I also really like the puppet master boss... so cool. If this game is any indication of what to expect from Metroid Dread...Originally Posted by Sammy
