Whistleblower is the upcoming DLC for Outlast

Outlast really scared me when I played it back at PAX East earlier this year and it seems to have been a debut success for developer Red Barrels, enough to warrant some DLC. The Canadian studio has revealed the expansion wil...

What are you going as this Halloween?

Last year, I dressed up as Princess Peach for Halloween. I made the costume myself. I was SO. BEAUTIFUL. My brother-in-law made his own Mega Man costume, and my wife went as some dude from the Internet. They were... less beau...

Surprise! Costume Quest is now out on iOS

Just in time for Halloween is Double Fine's Costume Quest, now available for iOS devices. Sweet! It's available for $4.99 on the App Store, and the Grubbins on Ice DLC pack can be picked up for $1.99.  We loved the game when it came out back in 2010 for XBLA and PSN originally. I wonder how well it translates to touch devices.

Sound Card 009: The top ten Castlevania songs OF ALL TIME photo
Sound Card 009: The top ten Castlevania songs OF ALL TIME
by Tony Ponce

This Halloween, you might feel like turning down the lights and cranking up the frights with a run through of a classic game like Resident Evil or Silent Hill. But for my time and money, nothing beats the premier name in action horror -- Castlevania!

Castlevania may not be the first thing you think of when someone says "horror," but there really is no greater poster child for the genre. This is a series that originally drew inspiration from old Universal and Hammer monster movies, paying homage to icons like Frankenstein's Creature, the Wolf Man, and of course Dracula. Over the years, it started to incorporate monsters and myths from cultures the world over. Castlevania is really just one giant hoedown with nearly every ghoul and foul hellspawn from all of human history.

And what better way is there to celebrate such a remarkable franchise than with a totally objective list of the best Castlevania songs of all time? From gothic jazz to vampire rock, each tune is distinct and memorable in its own way. I guarantee that, by the time you finish reading this list, you'll feel like a badass, whip-cracking, axe-throwing, superhuman hunter of the night!
