Geekery in General 197: Bloodstained-Curse of the Moon

May 27, 2018 @ 11:39 pm

Like many long time Castlevania fans Al is looking forward to the upcoming Ritual of the Night from Koji Igarashi, the genius behind Symphony of the Night. In the meantime we have Curse of the Moon to whet our appetite.

Correction: I mention in the description of one of the enemies that it was a solider who died in the demon castle war. This is incorrect. This is actually a description from one of the items a character can find.
