Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4/XONE)

Man I wish I could muster up any sort of excitement for RDR2. As a person that vehemently dislikes open world games, world building and videogames that desperately try to be cinematic... this checks off just about ever negative category possible for me. I'd be weeping tears of joy if Rockstar went a...

Re: $30 NES Challenge

Good call on Solar Jetman! It's such a cheap game, but oh so rewarding for people willing to put in the time and learn it's intricacies. Love it. It was on my short list and I was mad I forgot to mention it on the Podcast. Here were my picks and prices for those wondering: Clash at Demonhead ($12.50...

Re: 2018/11/10: Nintendo Switch: Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition

I've been coming to this site for a long time and Dave's love of Night Trap hasn't never wavered. I think it's awesome that a fan gets to experience this game with this newly enhanced version. It sounds like it's the perfect kind of update. Respectful to the original, but adds quality of life upgrad...

$30 NES Challenge

So let's say that you already own the essentials of your NES collection and you're looking to grab some games to round things out. If you only had $30 hypothetical dollars to spend, which games would you buy? This was the most recent topic of my podcast Dracula's Arcade . You can find the episode he...

Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

I listened to this tonight and really enjoyed it. I think these guys are growing on me. I got a kick out of the fact that they were drinking moonshine (!) during the podcast. Their commentary definitely made me want to play the game. I recommend playing along while listening. I need to go back and ...

Re: Chrono Trigger (Super NES)

I think it might be the best SNES game ever made. You guys pretty much nailed it with your comments. It's the single game I'd point people towards if they've never experienced a JRPG before. The whole thing feels like Square Soft captured lighting in a bottle and have never been able to re-create th...

Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

The music is subpar?!? I consider it to be the single best video-game soundtrack I've ever heard!!! Let me clarify my original statement. It has sub-par music for a Castlevania game. It's a series that is renown for it's legendary music. The three NES games, Rondo of Blood, Symphony of the Night et...

Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

I always thought Castlevania IV was a disappointing follow up to Castlevania III (the best Castlevania). Totally. As a kid I remember being really pissed off that the series completely got rid of all the excellent improvements from Part III. No more branching paths or being able to get alternate ch...

Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

Yup. I pretty much 100% agree with you. It's a good, but not great game. It's far too easy, doesn't have any real memorable boss fights, the music is sub-par for the series, and the gameplay is sluggish. In terms of 16-bit games, Bloodlines completely destroys it in every way. I've never been a huge...
