    • Ben's Gaming Memories: Returning to a Series After 20 Years (Castlevania)

      I'm going to be very blunt. Halloween, monsters, etc, it has never been my thing and I don't really care about any of it. As a kid I liked dressing up as a Power Ranger, Batman Beyond, or other heroes, but I didn't actually like Halloween. I'd dress up, have fun being a dumb kid pretending to be my favorite character, and I'd go out and get some candy.

  • Nicalis kicked my ass again with Castle in the Darkness

    … items that will allow you to reach previously inaccessible areas. There's also going to be a ton of bosses, based on what I played. That damn owl from the trailer gave me hell. Expect gear upgrades, too. Castle in the Darkness is rather clearly inspired by NES classics in the genre, particularly Castlevania, which I don't consider to be a negative. Maybe you do.
