30 Day Video Game Challenge: Post 1

Hey, guys! πŸ˜€ Luna over at Gamers United GG is hosting a 30 day video game blogging challenge, so I figured I’d join in on the fun! Since I don’t have the time to post each day for 30 days, I’m going to answer several of the questions in a few posts spread out through the month. This post will include my first 7 answers to Luna’s questions.

1.) Who is your childhood video game hero?

Probably Sonic the Hedgehog. I was a Sega girl, and I put a lot of hours into the Sonic the Hedgehog games as a kid (and who am I kidding, as an adult, too.) πŸ˜› Plus, you save a bunch of cute and fuzzy little animals, so that was also a plus for me. Tails was my favorite to play as though when you eventually got the option, but we’ll get to Tails in a later question. πŸ˜€

2.) Which video game world would you like to live in? Why?

Planet Pop Star from the Kirby games would be a top pick. Everything is just so cute and fun.

3.) Who is your favorite video game sidekick?

Miles “Tails” Prower from the Sonic the Hedgehog games. I’ve been a fan since Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I even had a stuffed animal that was a fox (essentially the Hobbes to my Calvin) that I named Tails, despite the stuffed animal only having one singular tail. πŸ˜› I know Tails can sometimes be a hindrance (especially in the special stages) but I still love the little guy.

4.) What was the toughest boss that you had to face?

Haha this is going to sound so lame, but when I beat Diddy Kong Racing for the N64 it was on a pretty junky television, and racing Wizpig was a damn nightmare because the picture was wayyyy too dark to see at times on that TV. So, because I was being stubborn as hell, I did the race over and over again to memorize my way through the race even though I was basically driving blind at times. It was a giant pain in the ass and I was soooo mad, butΒ  eventually I got it!

5.) If you can have a video game weapon, which would you choose?

I don’t like getting injured, so I’d want something I could use to destroy the baddies and keep myself from harm, so I’m gonna have to go with the Super Stars that give you invincibility in the Mario/Super Smash Bros/Mario Kart games. I’ve always liked mowing people down with the Super Star in Mario Kart. *Evil Laugh!*

6.) What’s your favorite game?

Ooh, this is tough. I’ve got several games that I love and could play over and over again, but I’m going to have to give this one up to Super Mario 64. Just because it’s so much fun, and I still remember the way I felt blown away by it when I first played it. That game will always hold a special place in my heart. ❀

7.) You’re in a Western video game and need to rob the bank, which video game character will be your partner?

Hmm . . . maybe Glacius from the Killer Instinct games? He can turn into liquid and slide into places that would be hard to get into otherwise, like vaults and locked doors. The dude can fight, and he has his own built-in weapons, so I could easily see him being the quickest draw in the West with that friggin’ sword-arm uppercut of his. Not to mention being able to freeze people. Yeah, I think we could get away with a bank robbery if I had Glacius as my partner in crime. πŸ™‚

That’s it for my first 7 questions from Luna’s awesome challenge. Be sure to check out her blog to see her answers, the rest of the questions, and maybe even join in on the fun! Big thanks to her for coming up with the challenge and making such fun questions. Looking forward to doing the next 7 next week! πŸ˜€

  1. Haha I enjoyed this! I swear to God you are a sister from another mother. My favourite video game character as a kid was Sonic too. I never got into Mario though but I loved how in sonic you could just jump and jump and jump. I used to hurl myself through the air and try to land on the smallest thing. How devastating was it when you fell on a spike and lost all your rings haha. Even the music was cool and catchy. I need to get that game for the kids hehe.

    1. Woo! Sonic fans UNITE! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you enjoyed this post.
      Haha Yeah, losing all your rings always sucked, especially if you were close to having enough to gain another life. I agree, I always liked the music in those games, too. They were just so fun. My older brother has autism and never really got into actually playing video games, but he used to love sitting and watching while me or my parents played it. Not a lot really kept his attention, but he’s always loved Sonic. πŸ™‚
      You should totally get that game for your kids! I bet they’d get quite the kick out of it, either that, or be blown away at how different games look now compared to back then. πŸ˜›

      1. We are not really a video game playing family but after reading your post I suggested to the wife that we get a PlayStation or something as a family present from Santa this year and she said let’s do it.

  3. I remember your stuffed animal Tails! And spending LOTS of time playing Sonic, mostly because I sucked at it and you were so good! (Like most video games we’ve played together lol.) The summers we’ve spent together are seriously some of my favorite childhood memories. ❀
