Diary Of An Arcade Employee Podcast 024 (Splatterhouse)

Splatterhouse - Diary of an Arcade Employee
It is nearly Halloween, so it means we need to talk Splatterhouse! On this 24th episode of the podcast I have chosen the 1988 arcade game by Namco. In addition I share my memories of the Turbografx-16 home version of the game. Furthermore I do cover the confusion of whether it was released in North America at the arcades at all!
