Hi all. My name is Marianne, and I'm from Maryland, USA. I'm into not just video games, but board games too! I lean towards board games a bit more since my mom and I have been in this meetup group for over six years. We've all played so many. Some of my favorites include Five Crowns, Formula D, Splendor, The Game of Things, Robo Rally, and Allhambra. All of them are great.
Splendor in particular for weeks during meetups has been everyone's
favorite! Not only is it a really nice looking
game, but it's a very good strategy-wise, with a bit of luck involved. Also, it's a very easy one to learn...
I've played video games for so long. I currently have the GameCube and N64 hooked up to my TV. I'm actually not sure when I'll be getting back to the ones I've been cycling through, but probably not for too much longer! I also have a Nintendo DS Lite, and one of my favorite games on that is Bejeweled 3. Oh, and some old school Sonic games. (Sonic the Hedgehog 2, yeah
I'm a self-claimed Last Generation and Retro Gamer. The video game industry unfortunately grows much too fast to my liking, and the shiny new games and consoles are so expensive. (Saving up for a 3DS and two to three certain games for it so far has been such a challenge for me. I wonder how long can I keep at this until I decide to just catch up on favorite manga and comics.)
Last and certainly not least, I'm into video game music remixing. Very much so--for I've got a handful of ideas in my head for certain tunes from these games; Final Fantasy 7, Super Castlevania 4, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Darius Twin. ...The Mortal Kombat Techno Syndrome
isn't actually directly from any of the MK games, but it's the official theme to the very first game. It sort of counts as a gaming remix!
So, if you'd like, feel free to listen to Mortal Kombat Komputer
... Long ago, before this, I put together a few original tributes to my favorite Primal Rage characters--two of them I still really like to listen to sometimes. My more recent original one is a techno/metal industrial tribute to the Creepy Pasta gaming character, Sonic.EXE.
Currently, I'm in the middle of one of my two Darius Twin remix projects, and it's been really exciting! Darius Twin was one of my favorite Super Nintendo games to play as a kid. The enemy spaceships that look like various aquatic animals and
music to me make this one memorable.
