What October would be complete without horror themed playthroughs on the retro and modern side?  Over the years, we've played some fun and exciting titles including Alan Wake and Fragile Dreams on the modern side and two installments of the Castlevania series on the retro side, Simon's Quest and Symphony of the Night. Next month on the modern playthrough, we delve into another popular franchise with Resident Evil, which for content purposes, the GC/Wii versions will be played by the hosts.  Those wishing to play the original on the PSX are still encouraged to play along, but please note that you may miss out on parts of the discussion and may not be able to abide by the same checkpoints.  On the retro side, we return to the Castlevania series once again with our playthrough of Castlvania: Bloodlines. This game is an oddity in that it was the only Castlevania game produced solely for a Sega console.  Does it hold up to the rest of the series? Let's find out together!



Get ready to fire up your Genesis for another retro playthrough. This month we'll be whipping through Castlevania: Bloodlines - the only Castlevania game for the Sega Genesis (and only Sega exclusive Castlevania). Dracula has been defeated, but his niece, Elizabeth Bartley, plots to bring the legendary vampire back to life.  While in most Castlevania games you control a member of the Belmont clan, in Bloodlines you can choose between the whip-cracking John Morris and wielder of the Alucard Spear, Eric Lecarde. So next month, take up the fight against evil with Fleach and singlebanana, and stop the resurrection of the world's most dangerous villain.

Over on the modern side, we play the original survival horror title that started it all, Resident Evil!  After a series of bizarre murders have occurred on the outskirts of Raccoon City, the Raccoon City Police Departmentís S.T.A.R.S. team is assigned to investigate them.  Almost immediately things begin to go wrong, and the S.T.A.R.S. team is forced to take refuge in a nearby mansion.  Play as S.T.A.R.S. members Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine as you explore the Spencer Mansion in an attempt to uncover the mysteries held within.  Ration your ammo, herbs, and ink ribbons, because youíll need every advantage you can get to survive the monstrosities created by Umbrella.

great picks, both!
 
Awesome games, I don't have Bloodlines sadly, hopefully can rectify that sooner than later.
 
Since the PS4 Version is essentially the same as the NGC/Wii Versions of Resident Evil, can we play that Version? The only difference I've seen so far is different costumes.
 
Yes, the recent HD editions are fair game.
 
I'll give Castlevania a go. I can play it on a emulator and had a quick go and had good fun with it.
 
@FatherJack: Be sure to check in over at the discussion page FatherJack. Happy to have you along for the ride.
 
I'm in for Castlevania for sure.  I still haven't snagged either an original RE for Saturn or PSX, or any of the more recent remakes, so I might have to track one down...
 
Started Resident Evil on Sega Saturn, worst graphical fidelity of them all by far :-)
 
I am pretty far along in my playthrough of Resident Evil (I hope).  Back to the mansion where lurkers keep killing me, lol.  My playthrough is on my youtube channel: youtube.com/buckethealien
