Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was an incredibly well-designed and fun game - one of the greatest platformers of all time. Ayami Kojima’s art and Michiru Yamane’s music left an indelible mark on my young mind. And who could forget the incredible dialogue?
I’m not super into the newer games, but the excellent voice acting of the Lords of Shadow games has me pretty pumped that Richard Madden (Robb Stark in Game of Thrones) is the voice of Alucard. But apparently in that game, he’s really a Belmont, or something? And not the son of fucking Dracula? What the hell is Konami thinking? Ugh, whatever.
I’ll be taking the half-marathon approach to Inktober, producing one ink drawing every two days of the month and posting them throughout October and November. Happy Halloween!
