To celebrate Christmas this year, I’ve posted a very special installment of the Metroidvania Chronicles: Faxanadu. You may be wondering what is so special and seasonal about Faxanadu, since it has doodly-squat to do with Christmas, winter, snow or gifts. And the answer is, nothing whatsoever. But I got the game for Christmas back in the day, so it gets the nostalgia nod. It’s not quite a Christmas tradition, but it’ll do. Mainly because no one else is even updating their sites this weekend. Tenuous retro-navel-gazing is better than none, right? Well, OK, that’s probably debatable.
