  4. Oh Alucard…one of my eternal crushes hehe. I’ve never played it, but I’ve listened to amazing soundtrack, and I’ve seen it played. I’m not very good at Metroidvania games, but I love the intelligence that goes into that style of gaming!

      I kinda suck to Metroidvanias too. I’ve been able to play without particular issues only the first Castlevania and the first Metroid (actually I had some problems with this…)

      1. Whew! I’m so glad I’m not the only one :p I’m also terrified of Metroid lol. Mother Brain scares the absolute living daylights out of me :O

  5. 20 years already?! Dammit I’m old…I think I’ll pout by firing up SotN on my Vita and yelling at kids to get off my damn lawn. Even though I rent, and it’s technically not my yard.

      It’s always a great sensation to tell scumbags to get off from the lawn. I can’t wait to have my own house, my own yard and my lawn to swear to the kids while coughing like I’m about to die…

    Happy Belated Birthday to a classic! I hope a new entry in “Metroidvania” comes out someday. I could go for a sequel to this game or any of the GBA/DS titles!
