    ZX legacy is DS emulation, which has 4:3 screens. Its not like you can easily extend the main display out to 16:9 to use the space any better.

    This Advance collection is likely emulation as would be any DS collection. They ain't updating that ancient handheld code to run directly on modern things.

    DS had 5:4 screens actually, making them even less suitable to stretching out out 16:9.

    No each DS screen is definitely 4:3.

    The 3DS top screen was 5:3 it seems.

    Huh, could've sworn Nintendo had put out a handheld with that ratio, and I remembered the GBA and GB(C) weren't that (3:2 and 10:9 respectively), guess I was confusing it my memory with another odd screen in my household at that time.

    I would like an option to just toggle which screen is displayed with a button, and an option for really plain or even just black bars on each side to keep the aspect ratio right. Then add a few filter options, and we're golden.

    I think there was a fan patch of Dawn that removed the stupid touch screen stuff, surely Konami could get that done.

    Yeah, I'm expecting too much.

    Funny thing is that Dawn already has something without the touch screen stuff. Julius Mode just skips the seal-drawing when you kill bosses.

  • Shenl742Shenl742 Registered User regular
    If they're going to release it to multiple platforms they'll have to remove the touch screen stuff.

    Remove touch from the main game but I'd still like to see the dumb touch-only modes like the vamp sisters in PoR in most versions. Between Switch touchscreen, gyro, and mouse, there are things that can work well enough.

    I watched gameplay of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls which was recently released on Apple Arcade and no, I do not like this.



    The combat just seems a little off.

    Enemies attacked so slowly, both the attack rate and the wind ups. If they doubled the speed, they might have something.

    Its moving at touch-speed, I wouldn't expect much to change.

    Yuck, the character animation is all wrong. It's like they managed to Uncanny Valley a 2d graphic...

    Unrelated to anything, I wish they'd rerelease Harmony of Despair with split screen multiplayer on modern platforms.

    Sure, the game could be grindy, but it was still fun (IMO) and I'd like to play it again.

    OK, turn up the playback speed to x1.5 and jump to 13:10. That's about how fast the combat sections should be running.

    Edit: Hell, even 1.25 makes a massive difference.

    Yup, as soon as I saw the gold and crystals I knew it was going to be some MTX shit.

    The funny thing is that when they delisted the original mobile version, they got rid of the microtransactions in preparation for the Apple Arcade release.

    Right, that's why I marked it out as two distinct groups. Originally to make bank off MTX, now to look good as a "big name" for Apple Arcade.

    I'm really enjoying Yoku's Island Express which I got for free last week on Epic (sorry for being a bit late with that news).

    It's like what if Metroidvania (in the Ori vein)... but also pinball? Great fun. A few years old so probably pretty cheap on whatever platform you want.

    Yeah, Yoku's Island Express is great! It's got a very lighthearted vibe overall too, which I appreciate.

    Apparently the rumored Castlevania Advance Collection will also have Castlevania: Dracula X? That's the SNES game, not Rondo of Blood. Weird addition.

    Too busy making you spend $20 on playstation for just rondo + symphony I'm sure.

    Dracula X is a throw-in precisely because it is nigh worthless. It's the "The Adventure" of this collection.

    Honestly if they were gonna throw in a title, why not Rebirth from WiiWare? No way to really play that one anymore if you don't already have it downloaded on your Wii/Wii U :P

    I don't think a Wii emulator is in the budget for anyone but Nintendo. Which means they would have to dredge up some source code.

    Yeah but it's not that old, I imagine they still have the source code. It would require some effort of course but it's not like a crazy powerful game so it theoretically shouldn't be *that* hard to port it over (in fact IIRC WiiWare games were limited to 50mb or something absurd like that). But then if this was any company *other* than Konami maybe I'd be more optimistic. I have to wonder how much dev talent is still left over there that hasn't already bailed because they don't want to design pachinko machines...

    I think m.2 created that game actually, maybe all the Rebirth games. Would bet you would need to hire them to get it done.

    Now that you mention it, I think you're right. I'm quite sure they could do it, though I'm also quite sure that Konami is probably greedy enough to not want to waste the money these days...

    I mean, when they've got one advertising "erotic violence" is there any need to ask? :P

    (TBH it's probably not as many as people make it seem, but it's certainly a fun meme :3)

    Dracula X feels really random. Did it release on GBA and I just spaced it?

    EDIT: :lol: at the "not actual gameplay footage" on the end where they displayed the characters how I imagine they would look had they actually spent any time on the ports. :rotate:
