Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Weapons and pickups were randomized, and I somehow got the all-mighty and apparently rare Alucard sword fairly early in the game, which none of my friends got. I blew through the rest of that game with no challenges while my buddies had to grind shit out and they never beat it.

I made it to the final boss in both Final Fantasy 4 and Chrono Cross, failed to beat each of them a few times, and put them down for a while. I ended up losing the save files somehow and can't really justify sinking all of that time again. Maybe one day.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze! Placed my order and expecting it next weekend. This is one of the few games my wife can/will play with me. She loves DK on Super Nintendo and I showed her a video of this. She's actually excited.

I just love I get to enjoy a new game with my wife. She can only play Tetris and Super Nintendo games with me right now. She cannot grasp 3D games. I tried to get her into Mario Odyssey but it's nearly impossible for her.

My wife hasn't played a video game since Beatles Rock Band.

It's ok, she has her Bravo shows and I have my games.

Excellent. She has a lot of musical ability. She could sign and play the guitar at the same time since she knew all the lyrics.

Same with me! I’ve got it for Wii U, thought it was pretty cool, my kids liked it a lot, never finished it.

I'm looking forward to the Detroit: Become Human, Spider-Man, Red Dead 2, and Smash Brothers the most this year. Hoping there are a few more E3 announcements too. Would love to see a Mario Maker and/or Metroid Prime Trilogy HD Remaster on Switch.

Impressive, does she have four arms?

She put the microphone in her shirt. For claps she would make a weird, deep "HUHHHH" noise into the microphone.

I used one of the USB headsets from Logitech so I could sing and play at the same time.
