Admittedly, I haven’t had the most exposure to the Super Nintendo. It’s not that I find it a bad system by any means, but I have a lack of exposure outside of big name titles and two player games I’d enjoy with friends. When digging around to find out more about Ghouls n’ Ghosts, I found a spin-off series that I realized I had played back on my Game Boy – Gargoyle’s Quest. In particular, though I had played the original game, I was intrigued to try Demon’s Crest, the entry in the series on the SNES.
Somehow? I did not die after taking this screenshot.
Ahhh, October. Easily my favorite time of year. I grew up and live in a city that treats the entire month as an opportunity to prey upon tourists – every day of the month is Halloween, and an endless stream of people come into the city to enjoy that atmosphere. It will come as a surprise to no one that knows me that, while I loathe crowds and touristy kitsch, I am a huge fan of horror movies and videogames. For this creature double feature, we can start with one of my favorite series, before delving into a fantastic standalone game.
