    Also The Sims doesn't really get the credit it deserves for its fantastic actual pop songs.

    Yay! Okay, that out of the way... I'd also add Bust a Groove, as well as Parappa/Unjammer Lammy, Vib Ribbon and Ssssspace Channel Five?

    This is a fun thing to think about. Obviously, pop and games go together like peanut butter and jelly.

    I think Hard Corps is the better 16-bit Contra, but Contra 3 is still a great game that's iconically SNESical. I've actually finished it, too, so there is that!

    I completely forgot the derpy little bighead zombie guys on the cover. I love them. And the derpy green goo ghost who's totally just showing off his sweet human skull collection. I love him, too.

    The cover is a lot friendlier than the actual game. I like the game. It's very pretty for an earlier SNES game. The shifting terrain is cool. But, yeah, I know I'm never making it past the ghost ship without cheating like mad.

    Are you going to do a box art series for SNES games? It'd be a great way to rub salt in the wound, and I'm super curious about everyone's thoughts on The Legend of the Mystical Ninja's cover, and why it's somehow better than the original even though it does that thing US covers did of scraping off as much Japaneseness as possible. Which is every aspect of that game, so. ">Glorious backfire

    > Squealing intensifies!

    This is my favorite Castlevania, sharing that place with Symphony. Both of them have the best soundtracks, in two completely different ways.

    Oh, I forgot to add:

    • Lisa is the best and her scene meeting Dracula is the best scene and I hope there's more flashbacks to their life together. They have a great chemistry that complicates the overall narrative just enough to put some fun wrinkles into everything.

    This is a game I've tried and largely failed to click with multiple times, and I look forward to trying and failing to click with it again in a prettier form that won't give me headaches and eyestrain on an HD display.

    Mostly I'm excited about the rerecorded music!

    I was really pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable this was to watch. It's probably the most faithful videogame adaptation I've seen, in the way it reworked familiar elements to feel natural in film. Stray thoughts:

    • Trevor and Dracula share a line almost word for word; about one good person standing up to injustice. The only difference between their attitudes seems to be that Trevor is still young enough to want to be that one good person.

    • The association between vampires and science/technology is really interesting and could go somewhere. Or not. I'm not looking for anything especially thoughtful here, I'm just impressed the show is establishing themes like these at all.

    • Eeeeeeee Alucard

    • One, Grant needs to be louder, angrier, and have access to a time machine. Two, whenever Grant's not on screen, all the other characters should be asking "Where's Grant"?
