    That aside, can't wait for this game. :)

    I dig long brown hair and blue eyes, what can I say? The skirt and legwear don't hurt any, either.

    What's the release date for this?

    I hope I get the pre-order bonus with mine.

    I'm considering putting it on ebay if they go for anything.

    Castlevania on the DS is a constant reminder of how perfect 2D can be. I'm glad I'll be getting the pre-order bonus :D

    Indeed. I really hope we see a 2d Metroid on the DS one of these days.

    The pre-order stuff is awesome, although I've mostly just listened to the cd, I haven't really looked at the timeline or artbook yet.

    So, I didn't see it mentioned in the OP...is there anything in this one that'll require the use of the stylus? Because I wasn't a big fan of that in the last game.

    Have DoS; not yet beaten it (I'm close). Very much looking forward to this. I've been a fan of the series since the original. Hope I can still score the pre-order bonus.

    I don't think this is so bad for my first game-centric post. Discuss!

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. You ordered it yesterday and you got all your pre-order bonus at that moment? I reserved one or two months ago and I didn't get squat. I'm not even sure I'll be getting a bonus at all.

    Yeah, I definitely got my pre-order stuff on Saturday when I ordered. If you ordered in a store, I'd advise heading down there to see if they have the pre-order stuff in.

    OK, so I pre-ordered from EB on-line on the 26th Oct. and the site now says both my items (the game and the pre-order bonus) are "processing". I hope this means what I think it means, but I don't think I'm going to find out for sure until after Christmas, 'cause I live in England :cry:

    On the Other hand, that bonus is so damn awesome, I almost don't care about the game, I just want the shinies...

    Can I just ask those of you who have the bonus gift already; What is this "card case" they talk about and how, exactly, is the stylus "themed"?

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    The case is disappointing, actually.... it's just a small case that holds both Castlevania carts (I thought it was a case that held the entire cases of the games). The stylus is white with a clear shell, says "Castlevania" on the side (in the awesome font), and extends so it's not a bitch to hold.

    I won't be picking this up right away, but only because I recently acquired Dawn of Sorrow and the game is just balls-out fantastic. I'm not normally a collector-type of gamer but even I'm interested in just farming souls for a little bit. I went through the main game and I'm doing both a Julius mode run and a Hard mode run right now.

    Hmh, I got official anniversary soundtrack and I must say this is really bizarre compilation. NES-songs are clearly emulated, there is too much emphasis on bass, and mixer has also added small amount of echo to most songs. Furthermore, Portrait of Ruin's songs have different arrangements than you can actually find from the game. Pretty disapointing.

    Hypnotically inclined.

    Christ, PoR discussion has been severely lacking

    3 pages later, it still is. It's like people don't even bother with the thinnest pretense of having something to say.

    I do wish to congratulate someone for being such a deep loser that you had to drool over a pic that's not even particularly out there. Keep up the good fight, pal -- one day society will let you enjoy being gay and you won't have to try so hard.

    What's the deal with weapons in this game? Is it like the more recent titles with the SotN-style variety of weapons, or are we stuck with just a whip that gets powered-up? Because honestly, that'd be really fucking disappointing.

    I think he's sick of the pre-order discusion..

    R-r-right?

    So, does this game have a soul system, or is it something else like 'power cards'?

    Edit - t Vincent, I'm almost positive there's a weapon system similar to SotN. I know that you get other weapons besides the whip.

    I hope it's not delayed... I took the day after release off. ;)
