What’s been keeping me occupied at home is not kicking ass in Civilization IV or learning how to drift in Need for Speed games (you’re damn right I don’t know how to drift), but the Dream Day games: DD Wedding, DD Honeymoon, and DD First Home. Finding stuff in a pile of clutter is irritating, but it’s kind of exciting once you get the hang of it.
I’ve also been using arcade emulators lately to practice on old arcade classics like Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs. Street Fighter, X-Men: Children of the Atom, and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. Yeah, I just went retro. Here are my characters:
- MSH: Psylocke, Captain America, Blackheart
- XSF: Cammy/Rogue, Magneto/Bison, Cammy/Chun-Li
- CotA: Psylocke, Colossus, Iceman, Spiral
- MSF: Ken/Ryu, Chun-Li/Ken, Spiderman/Captain America
Tekken is no longer a top-priority for me: I’ve just grown too good at it (whatever). I just Perfect-ed a Korean playing Sergei Dragunov with my Steve Fox, which still does not have a juggle in it. I’m not looking forward to playing T6: I don’t have problems playing Bob in the future, but I do have a problem with Miguel (who, strangely enough, looks like Antonio Banderas in “Take the Lead”).
