This week we're taking a look at the Super Nintendo's first stab at Castlevania – a game that took perhaps too much advantage of the new hardware's Mode 7 scaling graphics.

Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, and myself are joined by special guest, comedian Kumail Nanjiani. He's a huge video game fan, and a Super Castlevania IV expert who understands the importance of putting morals before your mission to destroy Dracula.

Alongside stand-up (you can find his latest special Beta Male here), you might recognize Kumail from the HBO comedy Silicon Valley or IFC's Portlandia. Kumail also played Reggie in Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season Two and has a new show coming to Comedy Central starting July 23, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail. You can also find Kumail on his newest podcast, The X-Files Files where he and assorted guests are revisiting every episode of The X-Files, and the video game podcast The Indoor Kids, which he co-hosts with his wife Emily Gordon.

Most importantly, though, you can find him in the video below talking to us about being part of the Microsoft press conference at E3 2014, why it's difficult to record dialogue for a Telltale game, reminding us how great Quackshot is, and introducing us to a fantastic Genesis game for our Roulette segment.
