Castlevania for some… miniature American flags for others!

Holy god-damn smokes, how did I not hear about this game until it came out? Look at those gorgeous fine artistic visuals, the brilliantly scored music, the Berserk-esque cinematic and mystically-themed storytelling. What the double-fuck? I don’t even have a system for it and yet I am buying this game. The gameplay can be mediocre — I’ll play it for just the music and graphics and story. I am literally ordering this right now in another tab.

What a fucking massive undertaking this production must have been. It kind of redeems the new videogame systems of the gross stuff they are known for, with their blatant first-person-shooters and endless trite Final Fantasy games. This looks better than all the movies that came out this year combined. You know how most people falling in love just sort of get emotionally obsessed, anxious and drained of all their other interests? Yeah, this feels like that but worse. And playing it probably won’t even quell the obsession. I believe it was Basho who said, “Even in Kyoto, I long for Kyoto.” (unless it was some other famous Japanese historical figure, and unless it was about Edo instead of Kyoto, but you get the general drift).

When the Japanese make such intricate beautiful productions like this, you start to think life actually has a purpose. Humanity is still up to something good!

As a truly righteous bonus, peep this Minibosses video featuring their cover of Castlevania III.
