The Final Word on GameStop

...I just got off the phone with the GameStop people. Due to low sales, they're cutting support for all non-current systems except the PSX as of February 22nd; they will only continue to sell NES, SNES, N64, and Dreamcast games through the website, not at retail locations. This is what I was told at...

So it's Wednesday morning now...I hinted at releasing a couple of music tracks this week. I've been very busy the last couple of days searching for a new job, which--coupled with the fact that one of my housemates brought "Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles" home the other day, has resulted in my not...

It wouldn't surprise me if Lik-Sang funded the magazine via print ads and coupons, Try and go for option 3 and ask them about some kind of affiliation/sponsorship. Whether or not they agree to do it, one company's ads likely wouldn't be enough to support a full publication, which means active campa...

Fair enough; just thought it would be nice so we wouldn't have to deal with eBay (or the incredibly fickle EBGames.com stock) for all that junk. But I see your point.

That's a very ambitious plan, DaMadFiddler. The main problem is the sheer ammount of work that'd be required (art, sound, music, models, levels, textures, programming). Might be a bit difficult to organise, and a few things might need to be cut down. That it is, and it's why I'm looking for all the...

DC Classifieds?

Not quite sure this is the right forum, but there doesn't seem to quite *be* a right forum; hence the post ;-). Perhaps it might be a good idea to set up a "Classifieds" board here, to facilitate people looking to buy or sell Dreamcast games/equipment/accessories (and thus spread DC goodness ;-))? J...

Heh...fun topic. I'm up late and bored, so thought I might throw in my two cents :-P MY FAVORITE UNDERRATED GAMES: 1. Headhunter (halfway between MGS and the more recent True Crime, it seems...and a lot of thought that went into it. My only complaint is long load-times) 2. Rez (haven't beaten the FI...

More Castlevania Info

I've decided to publicly release my project proposal for the game. Please note that this was drafted before I had anyone working with me on the project, so any part of it may be subject to change. I am very thankful to Rusty for his volunteering to work on the game engine, and WillSams for offering ...

New images

Just a quick note regarding the title screen: It *will* most likely change...I have no idea how dramatically. Also, this early image shows the game title as "Castlevania: Nocturne of the Restless Dreamer." This also may very well change; it's a development name only. It's kind of a fourfold referenc...

FIRST PUBLIC MATERIALS As I said, I will be releasing a little of the preliminary work over the next week to help spark interest in the project. Most of my materials at the moment are internal notes or small items which will most likely not go out publicly (there's no point, really)...but a lot of t...

Additional thoughts I left out above: Graphics IDEAL: As far as in-game display is concerned, I am preliminarily thinking more of a chase-cam (Castlevania 64-style) than the fixed viewpoint of Lament of Innocence. This is--in my opinion--a more immersive system, although I realize it would also be f...

3D Castlevania...looking for help

Hi- Longtime lurker, first time poster, you know the drill. I have an idea, a project, and I'm looking for assistance. Hopefully this is in the right forum; I wasn't sure whether it belonged here or in Development Ideas, since it's rather more of a project beginning than a casual idea being thrown o...
