Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 28] : Every Video Game Is a Castlevania Remake

Mandi shares a very catchy earworm after playing PaRappa the Rapper 2 on PS4, which leads us into the wild topic of video game remakes, re-releases, and remasters. Are they a collector’s delight or a cheap cash grab? Believe it or not, we’re actually siding with the industry on this one.

After the break we start flinging factoids around, digging through the surprisingly long history of video game remakes. While it may ruffle more feathers these days, it’s been a part of gaming history since before any of us were born. So where is the remake’s place in the industry? Are we looking forward to the remake of Final Fantasy VII? Well, that’s a silly question; of course we are.
