A friendly reminder that where the feedback for the podcast is concerned, we love it - but keeping it brief is appreciated.

For reference: Here's a Live One Credit Clear of Castlevania 3 (JP Version) from October 2021, using Sypha.

It remains the only time I've managed to get a full 1CC done on this, so far. I'm happy it happened live.

Was there ever a better looking and sounding NES game? I definitely can’t think of a more atmospheric one. It might be a return to the original’s gameplay and quite a few of its themes, but it’s way more than just more of the same, with its multiple characters and multiple pathways offering loads to keep going back for, and some wonderfully varied but always haunting backdrops to do it against. Maybe not the best Castlevania but I reckon it’s up there with the best of the NES.

Three word review: Welcome back Castlevania!
