Castlevania: Haelp I'm Confused

May 19th, 2010 by DanielRGT

There’s a lot to be said about Castlevania. There are castles, certainly, and on top of that some obscure and unidentifiable substance known as “vania.” On top of that, there’s Dracula (or his surprise twist of a son, Alucard), Death, zombies, ghosts, zombie-ghosts, ghost-axemen, axemen-zombies, medusa heads, and fishmen.

It was certainly an original game when it came out for the NES, but when people go around spouting how good these games were, I get a little confused. The first source of my confusion stems from the fact that all old castlevania games, without fail, are fucking awful. I mean it, they’re really bad. Like any movie with Pauly Shore bad.

The old games, using a mixture of brilliant game design and mechanics, bring together the best parts and memories of falling in pits of water (and subsequently dying), attempting to hit some unreachable enemy (Spoiler: He can hit you), getting hit by random flying medusa heads or other related projectiles and falling in previously-mentioned pits of water, and attempting to jump across a chasm that was specifically built to harbor your doom.

Actually the only thing these games really have going for them, which is probably why people enjoy them so, is because of their exceptional music. It’s actually beyond exceptional, but I don’t want to spend several lines having a figurative boner over these tunes, so suffice to say the music is excellent. Which brings me to why I believe people play these games.

Good music in a game has a powerful effect on people. There are games I have played longer than I really should have (such as Castlevania) because of their music. Hell, I will sometimes even leave the game on, not move my character, and go and do something else because I want to listen to the music.

This does not, however, tell me that the game is good. If the game is a piece of ass, the music will not suddenly turn the game into a masterpiece. On the contrary, I feel pity for the game because it had such good music but was left to be a miserable pile of shit that not even its own mother could love.

This does not explain, however, why people like old Castlevania games. Pretty much everything before Symphony of the Night is an awful game and should feel awful, but you will see over and over again how much people liked the first Castlevania, how Castlevania 4 is the best game ever to have existed ever always, how Richter would look so cool in my apartment.

I’ve got to tell you I’m sick of it. Good music does not make up for poor gameplay and horrible jumping mechanics. Actually the only old Castlevania game with okay jump mechanics IS Super Castlevania 4, which is probably why people tend to enjoy it so much. It’s not a very good game, but even a pile of dirt will shine gold if compared to the previous piles of excrement you saw earlier.

Bonus opportunities on Credit Cards

August 10th, 2007 by DanielRGT

There’s nothing like an initial bonus opportunity when getting a new credit card. This is a perfect opportunity to use your purchase. If you use it, it increases your points, which you can use on future purchases.
Always do your research before paying for something with your card. Look at the comparison, take your time, and compare purchases. Always look at the point value of the card, not the cost of the card. If you are going to spend big on the card, get a sign up bonus first to help your use the card.

 


Watch the interest rate on credit cards. Many people are caught off guard when they find a card with a low interest rate. In fact, a lot of people find they can’t get a better rate than this. Even if a card with a higher interest rate is available, make sure you get one before you start using the card for purchases.
Do your research on the amount of credit you have available on your card. Review your credit reports and know your credit limit. If you’re not using your card, you’ll go over the credit limit and get cut off from your cards. After all, no one wants to spend their money on a card that is closed!
Pay off all of the debt you owe on your cards to any card that has a low balance transfer fee, and apply for a balance transfer fee-free card. Pay off your other cards first, then apply for a balance transfer fee-free card.

What is a credit-builder?
A credit-builder is a credit card where you can pay to build a good credit rating. So far, credit-builders have no limit on the number of cards that can be built, but they do have an annual fee. They are usually cash-back credit cards. The key to building a good credit rating is to use your credit as much as you can. Let’s say that you want a credit rating of 720. If you are shopping around for a credit card that will give you a rating of 720, you have to evaluate the card you’re considering and you have to take into account the terms of your credit cards. We suggest starting by visiting this website at https://www.sofi.com/credit-card/.

Some of the things you should think about are the length of your credit history (think about it from the perspective of your last purchase), how much you pay in interest per month, and if your credit is good or bad (good means it hasn’t been delinquent). You’ll have to shop around for credit-building credit cards to see which ones you’ll be happy with. But if you’re buying your first card to get the best rate for your first purchase, try to evaluate the terms of the credit-builder’s program, and you may find a card that fits your needs. It may not be worth it to jump ship and give your good credit a bad rating.

Now that you’ve looked at the main points of a credit-builder, let’s look at some examples. Some of these cards may be familiar to some readers. Some, may be completely new to you.
