[QUOTE="bigM10231"]

i dont see the blurrinessin n64 games but i see blurriness in the ps1 fat. i prefer the n64 look to the ps1 because the detail seems more natural

SciFiCat

There was no "blurriness" in the PS1 games textures, just pixelation. What does the PS1 hardware being the fat or slim model had anything to do with the visuals? It was the same hardware just smaller, the slim did not have any anti aliasing or texture smoothing hardware in it. There is nothing "natural" about blurriness, the human vision naturally focus on objects to see the greatest amount of detail possible. While PS1 textures were pixelated, there was sharpness to them. The N64 textures were so blurry just to hide the fact how little detail there was in them. The memory of the N64 carts was so limited that developers had to recur to techniques such as layering one texture over a second one just to get a 3rd texture pattern to mipmap some polygons.

The textures on an N64 game were extremely low resolution, the hardware had to blur them out just to hide that fact, just look at that back wall.

The textures on PS1 games could be richer and have more detail to them even without smoothing thanks to the CD storage capacity.

I also preferred the graphics on the PS1 because of the greater detail the system was capable of.

That's a tough question. I'd have to go with;

  1. Castlevania
  2. Battletoads
  3. Super Mario Bros
  4. Dragon Quest
  5. Excitebike

I like PS1 more than N64. The Playstation got me into Japanese RPGs, and it had some of the best of all time. I still enjoy Xenogears and Final Fantasy Tactics, also still play non-RPGs like Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night, and Gran Turismo 1 & 2.

Nintendo 64 had a handful of amazing games, but not much else to play besides. Also didn't care for the odd controller. Sure it was innovative, but it didn't have the best design.

So, I am back on CotM now and I played all the way through the Battle Arena to the last enemy....Devil! And OMG, he totally fried me, real quick like! I will get through it one day. I farmed 99 potions and it is still really tough to get through it all. I really don't want to farm 99 high potions, but I guess I will if I have to.... :roll:e1shw

How long did it take to farm 99 potions?

I never thougt that SotN was one of the easier :? anyone else with me :( ....  which one you like themost so far? and CV froze on you:? where were you playing? sorry dude...

My top 3 Castlevanias would be

  1. Symphony Of The Night
  2. Rondo Of Blood
  3. Circle Of The Moon

I always found Symphony to be extremely easy. Luck mode is tough at first, but eventually you get such awesome stuff from enemies that the reduced stats aren't a big deal.

I was playing the original CV on NES, I was so mad when the game froze. I'll try again eventually.

I went through the area with poisoned water without purifying it. after I beat that area and went to another one I found the thing that purified the water =( D3j1k0

:lol: I did the same thing. 

That final battle in CotM was the toughest fight I have had in any metroidvania. I think I died about 15 times before defeating him.

My favorite track in the series is Forest Of Monsters from Super Castlevania IV. I remember playing that game on my friends' SNES, and being blown away by the awesomeness of that song.

My 3 favorite soundtracks in the series are...

Symphony Of The Night

Super Castlevania IV

Rondo Of Blood
