Viva Oktober-Fist! The Vampire Strikes Back

Look, I'm feeling lazy most days today, so I'm just gonna let the editor of VGJunk do the honors with his comprehensive review of Vampire Savior. He's right, by the way... I personally prefer the predecessor NightWarriors, but Vampire Savior has lots of memorable characters and a more haunting atmosphere that's a perfect fit for the holiday.

Still here? Okay, I'll leave you with a short Halloween story. Way back in the late 1980s, when I was, I dunno, thirteen, I went out and trick or treated for the last time. Honestly, I was getting a little old for those hijinx, and I didn't put much effort into my costume, slapping on a white lab coat and a beard made of cotton puffs. Imagine a low budget Albert Einstein (no no, even lower!) and you'd have a pretty good idea of how I looked that night. Being as old as I was, and my costume being as crappy as it was, I wasn't getting too much candy from the houses I visited. However, that actually worked to my advantage, as one of the houses slipped me an Intellivision game, complete in box, just to get rid of it. I think it was Las Vegas Poker and Blackjack, the one with the shifty-eyed dealer. The game isn't a prized collector's item even in 2015, but I still had a lot of fun with it. It was more memorable than my lame costume, anyway.
