Game of the Month: December 2019 - Dracula X
« on: December 03, 2019, 12:19:20 PM »
Dracula X

So this month it's  Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo. I am sure most have played this to death, but it is another game I haven't 100% completed in quite a long time. I also got this game for Xmas back in 93 from my brother. So, December is a month I usually come back to play this game. I remember putting this game in for the first time and firing it up. It was such an amazing experience. So different for a CV game but good in every way. The music, cut scenes, pathways, and special attacks make this game so much fun to play. Maria always made the game a cake walk but she really helped me get that 100%. It's been so long since I've done a 100% clear and I really want to get that this month. So, here it is. The game that put the pc-engine on the map for a lot of non turbo players. Enjoy guys!

One more journey to Castlevania before 2019 comes to a close?

So be it!

If there was ever an incentive to fix my Duo-R's drive, this would be it. I hope I can partake - worst case scenario the PSP version will have to do

Good choice, finishing the year STRONG!  I didn't get a copy until 2000 or so, but it didn't feel a bit old or stale.  'Tis a nigh perfect game.

I missed out on the last GotM, but I don't think I can pass this one up. Great choice.

It's right there with Y's 1 and 2 as my favorite game on the platform.
