Nice job, Mr. Prolific!

How you're managing such high quality while pumping stuff out like Peter North is beyond me.

Thanks Marc. My plan is to hit writing burnout early this year then laze the rest of it.

I really gotta get this and Breath of Death VII. Both seem to be the perfect sort of "right up my alley" game and they'd only be like $4 combined.

It's games like those aforementioned that make me want to rush toward getting my 360 online.

It's games like this that make me want to rush getting a 360 in the first place. PSN has a weak ass library of downloadable titles.

As does Wii Ware. Apart from Cave Story, I have yet to be impressed.

But wait, the Wii has that 'new' Castlevania game, doesn't it? Looks sort of like Bloodlines?

Ah, yeah. I didn't mind that one. It's fun, but not as good as Bloodlines or Rondo of Blood.

Gary, about how long is this game?

6-7 hours on Normal, I would say. Longer should you go for a harder setting.

Well, I bought this, Death Breath and a roid-rage-rogue-style named Epic Dungeon for the total of FIVE AMERICAN DOLLARS!!! I'm happy. Death Breath won me when, right after playing Symphony of the Night again, I get to read the tutorial boss paraphrasing Dracula's one line from the opening of that game.

Haven't played Cthulhu yet (and won't until Death Breath is done), but Epic Dungeon is fun in a crazy way. Like Nethack for players who'd like to avoid thinking...enemies fly at you and you Ys-style run into them (w/o the "hit them from the side/back" strategy...you just run into them).

Epic Dungeon is the game I'm going through now. I'm camped out on level 43 or such right now and it's getting to the point where death looks likely.

I just started it and did a couple levels to see what it was all about. Observations:

1. HOLY SHIT WHO SLUNG THOSE MICE AT ME!!! was the first thought I had. I'm not used to games like this where enemies FLY at you.

2. Is it bad when your first visit to a shop involves you spending ALL your money on health potions and lantern oil...with nothing left over to improve crappy initial equipment?

You may be asked if to pick between different sets of stats to sharpen, of or have to pick between different variants of a spell

Change "of" to "or".

Good work on this review. Sometimes I wish I had an Xbox.

A buddy of mine is selling me the internet connector for a mere $20, so I should be picking up some XBLA and XLBI games soon, but I'm mainly going for the aforementioned RPG's and Limbo.

For some inexplicable reason I can't download XBLI games because I live in Australia...

Finally got connected and set myself up with 1600 points with which to download the following:

Cthulhu Saves the World
Epic Dungeon
West
Of Steel and some other thing
Breath of Death VII: The Beginning
Light's End
Molly the Were-Zompire
Chaos Gate
Aphelion
and maybe Antipole if I have enough points left over

EDIT:
Decided to forgo Molly and Chaos Gate in favor of Antipole and Wizard Apprentice. I'm glad I dl'ed Antipole. Oh, side scroller goodness. *drool*

Molly and Epiphany in Space are text adventures made by the same guy who did Cthulhu and BoDVII. Not played them myself yet, but that's a pretty good reason to try them out.

I'll keep those ones in mind, then. I just wasn't in the mood for text adventure right at the moment.
