  • 0:00 – Intro, which features the creepy music from the prologue to the SNES version.
  • 36:00 – Emails! Julian Assange writes in, and so does Harry Carey!
  • 56:30 – It’s everybody’s favorite… Ask The Sweet Boys!
  • 1:01:00 – Snifferoo. Next week, we’re whipping about the waves with a Nintendo 64 game.


– According to Price Charting, prices have held up pretty well for the series. The loose cart price can range from $13.50 (NES) to $22 (SNES, Genesis) to $80 (Master System), and the box and manual shoots the price up to a range of $41 to $132.

Ghosts ‘n Goblins is one of the prepackaged 30 games coming out in the sweet baby boy NES Classic Edition. It’s scheduled to be released in November.

Here is a ridiculous speedrun of the game, done in 21 minutes with no deaths.
