Rev Rant: Metroidvanias



3:00 PM on 07.02.2009

Every week, Anthony Burch monologues about a topic of his choosing in a video Rev Rant.

As is typically the case, I screwed up some aspect of the exporting and this week's rant is in the wrong aspect ratio. Doesn't really matter, though: the whining transcends video format.

This week's rant is about Metroidvanias, and why I am effectively incapable of enjoying them. I wouldn't go so far as to say that Metroidvanias suck, but I imply it pretty heavily in the following video.

Anyway, hit the jump and prepare to get mildly irritated if you ever enjoyed Symphony of the Night.
