As some of you might have seen in the comments section on the September playthrough, I mentioned to Fleach that it might be a good idea to consider running two playthroughs each month, one modern and one classic. Well, we kicked the idea around a little over several PMs and even posted a forum topic to get some feedback on the idea from members. It seems that the majority of those who participated in our poll felt that it would be a good idea and might encourage more participation from a wider variety of collectors.  Fleach, Bil, and GrayGhost will continue to host the modern playthrough, while yours truly [and possibly another member] will be responsible for the retro playthrough (me and my big mouth......).   

All members new and old are encouraged to participate in a playthrough if you can and we'd really love to have some of you join us for both! We love your feedback on the games and it's a great deal of fun discussing all the ins and outs of gameplay and things we like and don't like about particular titles.

As usual, we are attempting to keep the playthroughs manageable in terms of time played and are trying to pick titles that many of you already own or those that are affordable and somewhat easy to find. The modern playthrough will cover games from the PS2/GC/XBox up to the present, while the retro playthrough will consist of titles from the PS1/N64 and prior.  As usual, we are open to any suggestions on titles you might like to play each month and welcome any assistance in determining weekly goals and achievements on the threads or via PM.

So here we are, our first month of October is approaching and what better way to start off our split playthroughs than with a few horror titles. This month, the modern playthrough will be Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon for the Nintendo Wii and the retro playthrough will be Castlevania II: Simon's Quest for the NES. Please join us!

Wow, how'd I manage to have both of these? I only have 10 titles for the Wii...
 
2 possibilities at play here: (1) Fate, or (2) you have some sort of MindMeld superpower.
 
I love the graphic you made banana, it is beautiful.

I'm so excited to be involved in this!
 
Thanks I had another design with and 8-bit Simon whipping her in the face with a morning star while she was gazing at the moon, but I decided to go with this one instead..... I'm pretty stoked to be involved as well.
 
Yeah, wanted to say I loved the graphic as well. Good choice.
 
@singlebanana: ROFL! You made the right call there buddy.
 
Just preaching to the crowd here... That image is awesome! Can you email it to me? I want to print it and frame it. Smiley

This is should be a fun bunch of playthroughs.
 
Sure, I can send the image to anyone who wants it. Just PM me your email address.
 
Fragile Moon is one of my fave games this past gen. Only downside is the combat but otherwise an amazing game.
 
Hmm...incentive to attempt a no-death run of Simon's Quest...been putting it off for far too long now Tongue
 
It's actually a fairly viable game to attempt a no-death run on. The life bar is pretty large, but there are some tricky jumps that can land you in the water = instant death. Post on the discussion thread and let me know if you want to join us.
 
Day one. Get your playthrough on!
