Episode 105: Castlevania

Just in time for Halloween, Brent and Rob focus on the Castlevania series.  Spanning about 13 games through the 8-bit and 16-bit era, Brent and Rob seem to concentrate more on the 8-bit stuff.  Subsequently, none of the SNES games made this episode.  It's still good though.  The boys also share stories about scary things and Halloween plans.  Happy Halloween LMH listeners!  Full track listing below.
