2600 Reasons to Play: Haunted House (video)

It’s FINALLY the weekend. What better way to celebrate than to kick back, relax, and watch a Mr. Eddie video? 😀 (DHLEE!) This week it’s a new episode of 2600 Reasons to Play where I take a look at what might, possibly… maybe… perhaps… be the ancestor of all survival horror games. Perhaps this video isn’t for the faint of heart… but don’t worry, Mr. Eddie will be your guide.



Shall We Play A Game #6: Simon’s Quest Redaction

Castlevania is a classic NES and SNES series that many old school gamers hold in high regard. The original Castlevania helped set a standard for side scrolling action games and even today remains fun and insanely challenging. Castlevania 3 was even better, adding different routes to take and different characters to play as and making the gameplay somehow even more difficult. Super Castlevania 4 for the SNES with it’s greatly tightened controls, great graphics, and interesting gameplay is considered by many to be the best of all the pre-Playstation Castlevanias.

Then you have Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest. This game is considered the black sheep of the Castlevania family. Clumisly mixing RPG elements to the Castlevania engine this game is typically considered the worst of the entire series, many saying it’s even worse than the N64’s abominations. Some however have felt that inside Castlevania 2 there’s a good game trying to get out. This lead to one person, TheAlmightyGuru to create a fanmade version of Castlevania trying to fix many of it’s issues. It’s this game, Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest REDACTION that I’m taking a look at today.
