CoTM is really good. But to me, it feels more like a rygarmania version of Bloodlines than CV3.

The looks and music, and the overall feel of the game.


But that might be, because i played right after i did an intensive on Bloodlines to try and finally finish it (i did once and won't ever again)

I had already played Aria and Harmony before and Circle def. feels different, more akin to the older games.


But, Aria still holds the top spot of the GBA games, imho.





I'm playing Ys6: The ark of grinding. Seriously. So much grinding in this game. I feel like without it, the game isn't more than 3hrs. But i'm up to 10hrs and i think close to the end.

I like CotM the best of the three GBA Castlevania games precisely because it feels like it has more of a unique identity. Harmony of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow are definitely more derivative of SotN.

CotM was rad. It always felt different to me than the others and everyone calling it more on the CV3 side than SotN in this thread is making sense of my feelings.

The only thing I didn’t like about it was that it seemed exceptionally dark/hard to play on a non-backlit gba. But that doesn’t matter any more so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I only played it on my original GBA before I got one of those battery-draining worm light things that really just puts a glare on the screen more than helps light up the game. Someday I may play it on an emulator or something.

Playing Hollow Knight, about 20 hours in. I feel like I could have shaved off about 4 hours if I didn't have to wander around so much. Action is good though.

Played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime with bro-in-law and niece the past 2 days and it is fucking awesome! There are games that are multiplayer where having more players simply means having more targets, more damage to soak up, and more attack power, and then there are multiplayer games where the multiplayer aspect is integral to the design. Lovers is in the latter camp and it's absolutely amazing. The only downside is that it is local co-op only.

I got Dead Cells for Switch. It's been on my List since before it came out, and said list needs me to actually buy something, so I went ahead.

When I started, I was pretty bored because you fight through tons and tons of enemies that can't hardly touch you, and therefore the combat didn't feel satisfying at all. That's worse, you don't build up the skills that let you survive when you actually find something difficult. I would have preferred harder enemies with shorter levels.

However, I think the point is to blow through things as fast as you can. There are doors that lock after so many minutes of that game, behind which are huge rewards. Every game a speed run. Which is fine. It just means the base combat isn't very deep.

The said, I kind of bounced off of Nuclear Throne and Gungeon, so I might actually like this more. I might end up liking it more than Rogue Legacy too. Only time will tell.


Just started it tonight. Not sure if I like it...? Made it to Forgotten Sepulcher on my 3rd run. Seems like this is going to feel really, really repetitive. Enemies/bosses also feel like damage sponges if you don't have good enough gear.


I loved Rogue Legacy BTW. That one gripped me immediately.


I played some Dead Cells and it was fun but this post got me thinking about Rogue Legacy so I went back to that...and put a shitload of hours into it in a very short time.  Apparently there's an unlockable class I'd never heard of called the Dragon, which is pretty fun (and makes killing the Forest boss really easy).
