Rare Scares: Creepy Sounds in Creepy Castle

The Duck’s newest Rare Scares illustrates just how much one’s own imagination can be their worst nightmare.  Seeing as today’s post focuses on Donkey Kong 64, it should come as no surprise that the specific world I have in mind is Creepy Castle.  I have had an increasingly rocky relationship with this game, as the…

Star Fox Adventures and Some Deep Thoughts
