You're still alive, I've not seen many Castlevania fans around here, but I especially like the N64 games more than the other ones. It's truly a shame that a lot of people forget how great these games in the past were, and how can they still be amazing at this point of the time.
And yes, we have already the Necronomicon, if you have played the Castlevania's N64 games you'll see that the Necronomicon appears after you choose the character that you're going to play with.
i'd love to see some Castlevania love here on gaia. whats not to love about Castlevania? Vampires, whips, chains! (lol), great stories, and probably THE most amazing music in the history of video games.
