Playing Smash Bros. together.

Hello, my name is Daryl, and I'm a gamer.

Not a "hard-core" gamer. I don't think I would classify myself as that. But I think the only thing that doesn't make me hard core is that I don't have the resources to lift me to that echelon. There are lot of games I would have loved to play, but I cannot spare the time or money.

But I spared both the other week when Super Smash Bros. X came out. And the Missus was right there with me, right up until the end.

We logged in more hours than I'm willing to share, but it was quite a few. So many in fact that the day was declared a "junk day."

By "junk day" I don't mean just playing video games. Pretty much, we declare a junk day when we decide it's not worth it to step outside our apartment. Some days are spent catching up on recorded TV. Others on watching videos (I guess we have to step outside for that). But I think the word "junk" came in 'cause these days are generally filled by the intermittent flow of chips and cookies we crave during these days.

It's been a while since we got a game we could both enjoy playing together. Wii Sports was the first, but then after that, there were the mini-game collections that, well, don't have what it takes to become game-a-thons. They get tiring after a while, especially with just two people. After that, I got Biohazard 4, which of course, is only one player. But she watched with me, and even played a bit on the easiest settings (which kinda annoyed me 'cause she wouldn't die at the places which I failed more than once...grrr....). Let's not talk about Mario Strikers Charged (soccer game). Video game team-work is not our strong point. And that doesn't go well with my competitive nature...

But finally, we got a game we could enjoy, be on the same team, and do a story mode together. Couldn't ask for more. This might be the ultimate couple game since almost every mode could be played together. And boy did we play.

But by Sunday night, she was just plain tired of the game. She quit right when we reached the final boss in the story mode. We tired a few times together to beat it, but she finally retired but came back to see the final blow and the ending credits.

Though we beat the game, there's still things left to do. She's even looking forward to playing more, actually. But next time, at a much slower pace.

btw, if you didn't know by now, I get fanatical every now and then. =)

**highly recommended**

(and tell me your friend code when you get it! ;)
