    I'm really glad they got Charles Martinet again for this one. I loved him in Runner2, and it looks like they have more of him doing what he did in that game (aside from the ability to play as him, of...

    It's interesting to see the Castlevania parallels you made. I definitely see them now that you mention it, although I didn't during my 2 playthroughs (and I've been a huge fan of Castlevania since the...
