I just read your review on Steam and it was... entertaining xD

Still it's a shame to see that the collection ended up being subpar ;-;
I REALLY wanted to give some support to my favorite franchise 🙁


was only planning to use it for practice and not for actual runs for most of the games I have carts of, but nice to know


Is there any reason in particular that out of all the games in the collection only CV2 is elegible for run submissions in PS4? I think all of these games (CV1-4, Bloodlines, Kid Dracula, etc) should include the PS4 platform for submited runs too.


In the CV discord they are still waiting for a few more tests (most don't have time to do it) to make sure that all the games are on par with current emulated runs (and are not super faster/slower). that's one reason why the Japanese Famicom from collection is not allowed for CV1, as the hearts count down faster in that version, giving a leg up to anyone running on that version (over both other emu and real hardware). There's been lots of assumptions of CV3 being faster by a few frames per stage, and same with CV4's still being investigated from what I've seen.


Worst case scenario, Anniversary collection runs could always be submitted as an emulator category since that's essentially what the Anniversary collection is. Glorified emulation on modern consoles.
