A Winner Is You

A Winner Is You Podcast Episode 37: 25 Years of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night



Happy birthday, SOTN! We’re back to close off our very short Metroidvania season with what we both believe to be the superior of the ‘progenitor’ titles in the genre.

We discuss the game’s strongest points, the story, the enemies, the inverted castle (spoiler?) and how disappointing the PS4 remake is (typical Konami, amirite?) among many other absolutely definitely fascinating topics.

Because we’re quite prone to random nonsense, we also talk about vampire movies, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the Jimmy Savile Netflix documentary, Mindhunter and serial killer museums, learning that Micro Machines and its sequel both actually suck, Keio Flying Squadron for Mega-CD being “weird Japanese shit,” and we also have a letter from a listener that’s absolutely nothing to do with video games at all.

Then again, what is a podcast? A miserable little pile of banter. But enough talk, press play and have at you!
