Same.

I really need to pick up Bloodlines some time, but man has it increased in price massively over the last few years (at least the PAL version - New Generation). It's gone from being a £40-50 ish game to being more of a £90-150 game depending on condition. I nearly scored a cartridge of the NA Bloodlines on Ebay yesterday, but was outbid at 2 seconds to go :(

Anyways, I'll do my top 10 later once I have had a think about it.

Kind of a shame I don't think Bloodlines has gotten many ports for more access to it.

I don’t think Bloodlines has ANY ports.

Yeah, I was drawing a blank... I couldn't remember if it was on any of the eshop/VC's for the Wii, but indeed not.

Shame Konami can't give us a real Castlevania collection.

Fortunately Genesis emulates really well. I can say some emus get the fire and parralax scrolling wrong on Castlevania Bloodlines. I can double check Kega/ Fusion tomorrow for anyone interested in playing CV BL via emu.

I always liked John Morris was from Texas 8) yes, we're a proud bunch :lol:

I was endlessly amused when I lived in Texas that ordinary products would just get stuff like "TEXAS EDITION" slapped onto it. Easiest people in the world to market to.

I might have to emulate Bloodlines some time. I'm just one of those purists who has a really annoying obsession with playing games on original hardware and collecting real games (what I'm saying is I can see there are millions of repro cartridges being sold on Ebay for the price of a sandwich), which is honestly fine for like 99% of Mega Drive/Genesis games.

It's just one of those games I'm quickly regretting not having picked up when I saw it at more reasonable prices in the last 5 or so years.

What, y'all don't like Dracula X?

I'm sorry, that was uncalled for.

It is kind of bizarre we don't even have some low-effort version of this. It's money that's just sitting there for the taking. I thought for certain after the Mega Man collections performed well we'd see this.
