Bought Dracula X SNES
The Halloween season got me interested in Dracula. I bought the old Universial Studios Dracula Legacy Collection, Frankenstein Legacy Collection, Invisible Man Legacy Collection, and The Mummy Legacy collection.
I had this game loaded on the GP2x Caanoo emulator handheld and Dracula X is really good. You don't have a 8 way D-pad for the Lasoo like in Super Castlevania IV, only four way. He only automatically jumps two ways making for timing difficulty . It's quite expensive at $70, but more worth it than Earthbound (for kids), and Mega Man X2, X3.
I imagine myself growing older, happy that I bought it when I did. I think that Dracula X Chronicles remake is more fun than Dracula X for SNES. I own half of the Castlevania games already. It may help my credibility online on Gamespot and IGN to own Dracula X. Most 16-bit collectors seems to own Bloodlines or IV. Have you heard the saying, "If you don't own BLoodlines, you're not a true 16-bit gamer?" I bought Castlevania Bloodlines for that stereotype alone.
Its a great title for a game collector, because it has the Castlevania label and extremely difficult with those medusa heads and skulls floating.
