You're missing out. The RE2 remake is tied with the remake of the first game as my favorite game in the whole series. Code Veronica is honestly overrated, anyway.

My reason is that, in the first REmake, among the changes was the function of the red jewel and its original function passed on to the yellow jewel, which doesn't tie into Code: Veronica's tiger statue in the Spencer Mansion portion of the Antarctic base. If the REmakes get up to CV, Capcom will either have to change it and the related items accordingly, or axe the statue altogether.

Castlevania - Harmony of Dissonance. It is the one I never played from GBA. I don't like it.

It has a lot of nostalgia for me because I played the crap out of it when I was 11, but I can appreciate why a lot of people don't like it. Graphics are beautiful, but the music is awful and the game is way too easy.

I loved Aria and Circle of the Moon, though I understand that Circle is kind of bare-bones. I think my love for Circle of the Moon is for the same reason, it was the only one of the GBA ones that I had. I think Aria of Sorrow is pretty great and I've played it a half dozen times. Just like Zelda, I wish there had been more handheld ones in general.

I'm currently finishing up Final Fantasy 5.

Then I need to find a way to play FF3, 11, 14, 15, and Class 0.

Also forgot to mention that I have a 24x36" Harmony of Dissonance poster in my living room. Nostalgia is a powerful thing.

That's a heck of a commitment. I can't think of too many games that I'd like posters for. I'm glad I played it though. What other games do you have posters for Cam?

I just finished up Mario Picross, which was really nice. I play Picross 3d on my DS all the time and I only just recently found out they had that.

I've put Blades Of Steel on hold for the first time in two months to work on as many Mega Man fan games as I can get my hands on, Rock Force being next.

I have to admit also that I am jealous of the Castlevania III poster. That makes me wish for a really crisp blown up image of the title screen from some of my favorite games. Did you make some of them by doing that or are they all from somewhere else?

Coincidentally enough, I actually beat Bloodborne about a month ago and Orphan of Kos (along with Ludwig) were easily the hardest bosses in the game. I hate to say this because I know it's antithetical to the "spirit" of Bloodborne, but I had to level-grind in a Chalice Dungeon for hours before I was able to just bruteforce Orphan of Kos. Let me know if you need the code for the chalice dungeon I used.

I had no really problem fighting Ludwig, i just needed a couple of tries.
Until now the only boss i really struggled with was Rom the vacuous spider because i was too impatient and didn't fight the little spiders before taking Rom on.
Also the homing crystals were pretty damn cheap.
Anywho, i actually nearly did beat the Orphan a couple of times but then he has the amazing habit of one-shotting you in the face out of nowhere.
Leveling a bit wouldn't hurt but i am satisfied about the amount of damage (Ludwigs Holy Blade 10+, 30 STR, 30 DEX) i can dish out actually.
I also never really bothered to play the chalice dungeons so i know nothing about any code-system that's related.
I guess i will just keep on trying and trying till i have memorized his attacks more.
Summoning others seems to be impossible for me also, so i will have to take this beast on solo.
Welp.
At least that screeching noise he makes every 1,5 seconds isn't annoying as hell.
Oh wait, in fact it is!

Okay, so i did everything there is to do in Bloodborne plus a truckload of coop-leveling sessions and then went back to the Orphan of Kos.
I practiced the fight many times and today i just wrecked him, only using 3 blood-vials in total after i laid him to waste.
Now i am completing the rest of the game until i have the platinum trophy.

I'm replaying Bloodborne right now myself. I just beat Rom. I am excited because my first playthrough was so rough and I got the worst ending and missed out on several bosses. I told myself I'd come back to it. With Sekiro out and proving to be real hard, I've taken a break to re-do Bloodborne like I said I would. I'm loving it, but, I hate chalice dungeons and I really do feel like they help you to do a bunch of them, but they are so tedious and blood-vial draining.

Man, I would kill to play Bloodborne, but I haven't had a console since the PS2.

I love Dark Souls though, and I'm super immersed in the lore of Bloodborne. What a fantastic game world and story.
