GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - My Parents Play: Castlevania III

Time for me to wrap up another night. So happy to have a new Parents Play for you. Man, have I missed recording these. I sure hope you find this episode a suitable return! You enjoy that and I'm going to get some rest. See you in a few, short hours!

Its been a long time coming, I know. I apologize for the delay! We had two weeks where family vacation got in the way, and then another week where technical difficulties ruined an entire video. While that definitely still makes me sad, I'm very happy to announce that the series returns today! We're also getting back on our regular schedule, so expect weekly features with my parents for the foreseeable future.

Tonight my parents jump back into the world of Castlevania. We take things back to the days of the NES with one of my favorite entries in the franchise, Castlevania III. What weirdness does my Dad come up with this time? How well does my Mom play? Have a watch and find out!

GameFly lists Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for retail release on 3DS

GameFly is almost always spot-on with their listings. They tend to get a lot of things right and a lot of it comes out before officially announced. Case in point, this retail listing for the 3DS version of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. Let's see if WayForward speaks up on this!
