    Definitely happy to see this series again! Glad you didn't make him like the cartoon character! Hope the Harlam Shake reference doesn't get outdated too quickly.

    I couldn't agree more. It's awesome to see more episodes of this series. I couldn't stop laughing. Doug, I too hope Simon does the right thing with that shotgun. Be interesting if we could have a follow up. Huh? Huh? Haha.

    My Supervisor bought the new Castlevania game for the 3DS. Looks pretty decent I gotta say. Seems like what the N64 or Playstation games COULD have been.

    I haven't played much Castlevania, but in Super Castlevania 4, He fights zombies and the whips work fairly decent for that one. Still...can't be nitpicky, the Shot gun DID get me snickering.

    And here I thought i might not see another one of these. This is awesome! :D
  • beau hunt
    yay new Confessions about time
  • bookworm87
    I'm glad at least that I now know who Simon Belmont is, because vampire hunters are still awesome after the Twilight apocalypse :D
    Thanks Bartender!
  • Lord of Nothing
    Please Simon, Please End the zombie craze, let's make a new monster, or a few dozen.
  • L2  - At laaassstttt!
    I have to admit, Video Game Confessions is one of my favorite series-es on this website.

    Thanks Doug for doing this..!

    You should've asked Simon why the hell he has so many seemingly unconnected relatives...

    I think we need a Vampire Hunter Hunter.

    What kind of game was Simon Belmont in? Was it a home-console game, or an arcade-console game?

    He was in a great deal many of the Castlevania games, including the first game and even the newest one on 3DS. If I explained any more it might get too complicated, especially with the previous timeline involved. But the series has been around for over 25 years, and even more games. Inarguably it inspired virtually every action game around these days, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, God of War, Dante's Inferno etc.

    No Captain N reference? Then again, maybe it's best to pretend that never existed.

    I'm sure Simon Belmont would go apeshit if he found out he was portrayed as an uber-metrosexual on that show.

    Oh, I missed these, granted I was hoping he would do Vault Boy from the "Fallout" games, but I do admit, as a fan of Castlevania also, I let out a squee when I saw who he was going to do instead. This character has definitely been a long time coming.


    Although, I am with CyborgPrince, I am surprised he didn't make a Captain N reference also. Oh well, I guess that would have been WAY too much low-hanging fruit to harvest.


    Good work Doug :)

    There was a very short reference to the cartoon

    I thought there were zombies in Castlevania.

    Who does the drawings? Is that Doug or someone else?
  • CyborgPrince

    I believe it's Doug. He used to be an illustrator before this site became his full time job.
  • J1P2K  - Pokemon
    Do Red from Pokemon, or one of the other many hero characters from the series.

    I agree, I also think Vampire Slayers should retire....mostly because I'm sick and tired of that formula, almost as sick as the shitty "broody love interest" formula. can vampires please try something new....you know, that ISN'T completely asinine....
  • MSueSlayer
    Could you do some characters from the final fantasy series? I always look forward to these sketches :)
  • Guitar Ghost  - Barry? Where's Barry?
    avatar
    I was hoping for a Barry Burton episode, but I guess this will do.
  • Minion of Yahtzee  - Barry!

    It would be confession sandwich. Also good work Doug and I would like to see someone form Bioshock show up at the pixel palace for a good bottle of absinthe talking about all the crazy crap that goes on in those games.
  • Ivgoronk  - Finally!
    avatar
    Yes, a new VG Confessions. You made my day once again Doug!
  • ecojosh1
    Did any members of the Belmont family sue the creators of Captain N for slander?
  • Moon Spirit  - VG Confessions is back baby!
    avatar
    Great to see this one back.

    Too bad you didn't mention Vampire Hunter D, but then again, I bet you never heard of that one Doug. Not until Sage mentioned him in his Anime Abandon.

    Now I'm wondering what would happen if there was a Megaman episode. Or Kirby. Or even ones about the villains.

    Please do Sora from Kingdom Hearts sometime!

    Hey Doug

    You ever think about selling your drawings? I would like to buy one. You can get them copied or sale the original as one of a kind. I think it would be a cool thing for you to sale. I would like the option of being able to buy a copy of your work signed. Think about it!

    Thanks!

    Doug has auctioned off his VGC drawings in the past.

    Simon Belmont can kill zombies in a single hit in every game.
    i.e. Castlevania (NES) Stage 1
    But, I must commend you on not basing this VGC on Simon having a sadist and whip fetish, I would fucking cringe.
  • DarknessFallz  - Indeed
    avatar
    The whip that the Belmont's use (the Vampire Killer) is made to kill the undead so it is highly effective against zombies...

    I've been waiting for new ones of these for ages now. One of my favorite series on T.G.W.G. and sorely over looked it seems. This was a great one even if I never got into Castlevania much.

    So many possible things you can do. Master Chief... Calipso from Twisted Metal or Sweet Tooth... What ever one you pick next I await in anticipation Mr. D.W.

    But seriously, that show was awesome.

    He's a vegetarian, he wouldn't hurt anyone.

    Also, it probably wasn't duck season yet. XD

    Great episode!
    Although, I have one complaint - the background music is too loud.
    I already complained once on a Ask That Guy video, where there was a same problem.
    Tone down the music, Doug, it's really not that important for us to hear it - it should build the atmosphere, not make it harder for us to understand Dominic (or Ask That Guy).
