Happy Halloween! The VG Boys have always enjoyed the spookiest time of the year… a perfect excuse to play games that horrify us! Or that feature monsters, scares, and in this particular podcast’s case, a whip, skeletons, a vampire lord and lots of fun! Of course we’re talking about Super Castlevania IV for the Super Nintendo! An absolute classic featuring plenty of game play elements that we all known and loved from previous titles in the Castlevania series, but this one featured a return to the original with improvements all around. Since the SNES Classic released a short time ago, this title was included (a fantastic inclusion, we believe) and it was a pleasure to play this title again. An instagram follower “@the_donn_mega” requested we do a Castlevania episode, and this stood out as the obvious choice for episode content! We’re always open to suggestions and love to hear feedback from you the viewers/listeners! We also added something new this episode with a trivia portion right at the beginning of the podcast, so if you think you know your Castlevania, tune in and see if you can answer the questions yourself! Any thoughts on what trivia questions you would have liked to hear, or any tidbits of knowledge you’d like to throw in yourself? Please do in the comments below! We love hearing from everyone, and look forward to chatting with you all. We are big fans of the Castlevania series in general, and will definitely be doing more podcasts in the future covering other favorites, but we hope you all have a fun, safe and scary Halloween and enjoy the podcast!

Finally, E3 has returned… This is actually the first year where the convention is open to the public! It makes a ton of sense considering that gamers across the globe have access to the information almost as quickly as they release it.
In this episode of the podcast we talk about what we would like to see revealed and comment on updates on hardware and games that we expect to see for sure.
We comment on the upcoming games planned for the Nintendo Switch, the virtual console on the Switch, Skyrim, Metroid, and more!
We are excited for the EA presentation which includes Star Wars Battlefront II that finally has a campaign/story mode that the first release so desperately needed…and Kylo Ren as a playable character!
And E3 aside, how amped is everyone for the Castlevania Netflix series that releases on July 07, 2017!? There’s so much to look forward to this year and into the future.
