Castlevania-kytkökset taitavat olla ihan hyvä mainostuskeino näille peleille. Näyttää kyllä tuo V Rising menestyneen muutenkin hyvin, vaikka peliä ei ole varsinaisesti vielä edes julkaistu.

Koska Castlevanian brändillä on selvästi niin paljon arvoa, niin luulisi että edelleen olisi kannattavaa alkaa tehdä uutta osaa itse sarjaankin.

Simon Belmontia lainataan V Rising -nimiseen peliin. En tiedä siitä yhtään mitään itse, kuten en tiennyt mitään Dead Cellsistäkään ennen kuin Return To Castlevania sai siihen tutustumaan.

Huomioikaa, että Simonin kädessä on Combat Cross -tyylinen ruoska. En pidä sitä toki ollenkaan huonona valintana, koska CC oli mielestäni yksi parhaita asioita, joita Lords Of Shadow tutustutti eikä haittaa ollenkaan jos siitä tulee yleisestikin Vampyyrintappajan design  :jees:

I got a reasonable chuckle out of this.

Obviously, it's not pronounced like that in Finnish. Vehnäsämpylä = Wheat  bread roll. "Jussi" is a man's name (of the same etymology as John) that just rhymes with "pussi" (bag).

I remember a bit from, I think, Jay Leno Show, years ago where they were laughing at a bag of chips sold here called "Megapussi".

I think 1994's Wolf is surprisingly obscure and rarely brought up. I think it has a special kind of 1990's TV atmosphere and is a bit of a twist on werewolf movie tropes. It was a moderate box office success, but for some reason, it seems like kind of a black sheep on the filmography of all involved.

Ennio Morricone's music never fails and James Spader as the main antagonist is especially noteworthy. Pfeiffer and Nicholson do okay too.

Towards the end, it gets kind of generic with the wolf fighting. But that's only a small part of it.

Itse kuuntelen paljon Amiga, Megadrive ja NES musiikkia koodatessa ja maalatessa. Eräs amiga biisi tosin on ollut lähiaikoina vahvana ykkösenä
