In this episode, Paul, & Jimmy (sans Glen this week) return to form to talk shop about the sub-genre of Metroidvania games. Paul and Jimmy played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night a couple years ago and share some memories about that. They both agree that the Metroidvania style of gameplay is very fun and rewarding. Paul loved Super Metroid and Jimmy loved Metroid Fusion so they talk about the elements in those games that stuck out to them. They both have played (or beaten) Ori & the Blind Forest and were so excited to see the culmination of so many good elements in a metroidvania style. In a true return-to-form they talk about everything from minute details to grand schemes in relation to the Metroidvania style. Jimmy embarasses himself publically with singing (linked on twitter) & Paul recommends a steam early-access game (Dead cells).
