[QUOTE] Re: SotN as "comfort food" game, hah, absolutely. That's exactly how it feels to me as well. I can kind of remember the week when I got it, I was absolutely blown away the first time I saw so many parts of the game and just the scale of the castle felt insane to me at the time, and then the inverted castle...! It's not exactly difficult but good god I love going back to it. I still find out new things about weapons and items every time! [/QUOTE] I was so excited to get SOTN that I actually imported it and used the miserable, PS1-killing disc-swap spring method to play it, and then bought it for US PS1 when it came out. Nobinobita mentioned buying SFA3 many, many times; SOTN has been my SFA3 I guess, since I've bought it compulsively every time it's been re-released. I should note that while it's not technically superior to the PS1 original, it may be of interest to track down the Saturn version. It's Japan-only, but has extra stages, enemies, weapons, and best of all music, as well as a different playable Richter sprite and a different playable Maria from the one that's playable in... what, the PSP version? Not really sure it's worth the steep cost it goes for these days, but I like it quite a bit. [QUOTE] I don't blame anyone for skipping my wall of text, but I feel the same way! A lot of the music is quite good, I really like how the first stage theme sounds. I know mbisonhatclub is a fan of it too. The game itself isn't terrible, it just seems unnecessary considering how easy it is to get the superior original game these days. [/QUOTE] Urk, I knew someone had mentioned that! I did read your wall of text, but then in scanning to see who to quote on it, I totally missed it the second time. As for Dracula XX, I'd say that given how easily emulated these sorts of things are, it's worth a play or two AFTER trying Rondo of Blood. But definitely not worth the $50 or so I paid for it years ago.
