This is one of the strangest Castlevania opinions I've ever read. You did actually play Dracula X, right?

Holy fuck this game loves to waste your time by making you go through long sections only to block you off because you don't have an ability to continue. And they don't have warp points so it just further makes you run through the entire castle for no reason.

This. At some point, the game just became a chore, and I thought to myself chores are something I do for a living, not for entertainment. I dropped the game at this point.

It's a shame, because the dash is such a pleasure to use

I mean, I guess once you get the spells, but I'm pretty sure you don't get the game breaking ones until late, at least that's when I figured it out. You also have to manage your mana, unless you can just buy them whenever. I don't remember if you could or not.

I think it can be said that the title screen sums the whole game up and conveys its message perfectly. This is what the developers had in their minds and hearts when they conceived the game.

And it looks like it was never intended to become a series, it was just a moment of inspiration in which they felt this atmosphere the title screen conveys and decided to turn it into a game. But since it became such a hit, Square might as well make some money out of it

>>9608528
One of my favorite bugs in DK64 is that you can get to the test room from the minigames menu in Snide's HQ once you collect all the blueprints. Just press A and B at the same time and the game spits you into an empty room with a few platforms in a void with a ghost Donkey Kong staring at you.

There is a big difficulty spike when you hit Death Mountain, and another on the road to the Final Palace. This filters many.

I couldn't find a 1CC thread in the catalog, so here it is. 1CC stands for one credit clear, usually being used to describe arcades, so completing a video game without using a single continue, though its meaning can vary depending on what you're playing, for example when regarding consoles, the concept of credits isn't really identical to how it is in arcades, so many consider a console 1CC to be a completion without losing a single life, instead of simply not using continues, though opinions may differ, and some still consider a console 1CC to also be a matter of simply not using continues at all instead.

>What 1CC are you currently working on?
>What's the latest 1CC you've managed to get?
>Which 1CC of yours are you most proud of getting?
>How do you perceive console 1CCs to differ from arcade?

I struggle a little with 1CCs, as I do love the idea, that of mastering whatever you're playing completely, which is what it takes to even stand a chance, but it can definitely be a shame to be on a good run only for it to go to waste near the end. I personally consider a console 1CC to be a perfect run, not losing a single life, unless we're talking about arcades, which is where this idea originated from, and with that in mind my proudest 1CC is probably Sonic the Hedgehog, the original SEGA Mega Drive classic, I grew up with it, so getting a 1CC, and with 100% completion too, was both fun and special to me.

Any of you use these large aftermarket PS2 memory cards? Do they have issues like save corruption or are they fine to use? Would be cool to have all the saves in one place without having to FTP them constantly

Mine always erased my saves after a while.

>>9607189
I've had one of these for close to ten years now and it's still working. Although I've never tried to fill
it up all the way. I do back up my saves to a USB every couple of years though. You never can be too careful
>>
Some games like MGS 3 will not reliably work with any card above 8mb. It's not really worth the hassle of even 'officially licenced' larger memory cards when the 8mbs are so easy to find.
>>
>>9607189
Don't fuck around with memory cards. Official ones are still cheap and worth using over chink shit that WILL fail.

If you buy used games or consoles you wouldn't have any need for these since you'd just naturally accrue memory cards without paying anything. I got 6 8mb ones and have plenty storage, though it's cumbersome to
keep track of what's on them

I've been playing games on the new playstation 2 and it's a pretty complex system. Action games like devil may cry make you get all technical with it, unlimited saga had me pissing and shitting and thinking a whole bunch, stuff like that. I don't really know if the playstation 2 has a more casual and simple side. If anyone has recommendations for relaxing or just simple ps2 games that would be neat.
