California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at:

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
Users can visit our site anonymously
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via email
      Within 1 business day

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:
      Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:
      NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
      Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
      Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
      Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

RichterB: So now that the Simon, Ice Climbers, and Ridley E3 rumors for Smash are true, and RE2 Remake is real...the other E3 rumor connected to those was about a new Castlevania game project in development. I'm intrigued! Aug 8, 2018 21:36:25 GMT -6

purifyweirdshard: I started with NES too and I still like Richter way more. Simon probably isn't even top 5 haha Aug 12, 2018 14:36:09 GMT -6

Scuttlest: Based on my limited Castlevania experience (Portrait of Ruin, Order of Ecclesia, Rondo X PSP remake, and Symphony of The Night) Richter is the Belmont I'm most familiar with, so I'm game with his inclusion. Aug 12, 2018 15:53:58 GMT -6

MorningSun: Simon is iconic for being in the first game, and in many that came after, however, because he is the first one, he's a bit more basic as a character compared to later ones (I still like him too, but Richter is really cool). Aug 12, 2018 18:21:52 GMT -6

MorningSun: Oh, also, I am quite happy about the amount of Castlevania music in Smash right now, to say the least. The series has so much good music it's not surprising that they just decided to go crazy with it. haha Aug 12, 2018 18:23:57 GMT -6

MorningSun: (Even Go! Getsu Fuuma, which is not even originally from Castlevania! And I really like that game, so I always enjoy when anything from that game is referenced anywhere really). Aug 12, 2018 18:24:59 GMT -6

gunlord500: That game has a great OST :D Aug 13, 2018 1:07:33 GMT -6

purifyweirdshard: I was surprised Fuuma was on there myself, especially funny considering it made it over other potential CV classics lol. I think Konami OGs really like/respect that game. It's interesting also how Noisycroak did the game's main theme, as Yan pointed out Aug 13, 2018 7:39:15 GMT -6 *
