- Slyly themed to go live around Easter time, but largely bereft of Jesus-ian references (apart from a side reference to "some Christian complications sure to earn me a bumper crop of e-mail"), 1UP's Scott Sharkey is counting down 'The Top 10 Videogame Resurrections', subtitled the 'deaths that didn't stick'. Ohmy. Some vague spoilers within, obviously.

Sharkey's charming writing livens up a completely ridiculous countdown, with particular note given to Dracula in the Castlevania series: "Dracula's died and come back so often it barely counts. They've done this song and dance so many times they started setting the games in the future because they're down to one weekend in 1470 where the guy was actually dead for more than a couple minutes."

Also a fun read - Sephiroth from Final Fantasy: "At some point Square is going to have to come to grips with the fact that if they keep bringing him out in spin-offs/prequels/whatever, they're going to run out of ways to remix "One-Winged Angel." Opera is good. Electric guitar is pretty OK. But eventually they're going to be down to ukulele and a kid with a kazoo, or a washboard and a saw." Hey, if XOC did it, we'd be into that!
