#GamingTogether has been our little hashtag game on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr during the weekdays. Considering we haven’t done a little compilation like this in a couple of months, we decided to do another. These questions were from February 2019.
1: Do you prefer characters with higher speed or attack power?
Kris: Higher speed, all the way. I love thief and ninja-like characters with their evasive maneuvers. Can’t hit a character that’s too fast!
Rachel: I agree, I prefer higher speed. Any damage is damage, especially if it’s done first.
2: What’s your favorite elemental magic in a game?
Kris: I’m finding myself leaning more towards lightning, if that’s an option, lately. Otherwise, wind or dark.
Rachel: Fire for sure. I’m sure you all knew that though.
3: Do you typically buy ports of older games?
Kris: Depends on the game, really. If it’s a game I remember loving, I’ll probably buy it for nostalgia.
Rachel: Yeah, it depends on the game. But honestly, I think I’d lean more towards yes. I always says I won’t buy ports and then I do.
4: What’s your favorite multi-player game?
Kris: I’d probably go with a Smash Bros. title or Super Mario Party, actually. Super Mario Party is something that is casual enough for friends that typically don’t play games join us for a round or two, while the Smash Bros. franchise is just classic.
Rachel: Super Smash Brothers, most likely. I don’t play it as often as I should, but it’s great fun with more people.
5: How do you feel about spoilers in game announcements?
Kris: Not great, admittedly. I like learning enough information about a game to help me figure out if I want to buy it or not, but spoilers turn me off. Case in point is the Pokemon franchise. I’m sincerely hoping Nintendo keeps some surprises about generation 8 and the new Galar region under wraps before the games are released. I do not want to already know the characters, the map, and all the new Pokemon before turning the game on.
Rachel: I can tolerate it, but could do without it. For the Galar region in Pokemon, for example, I like seeing the starters and the map. It makes me curious about the final evolutions and legendary Pokemon… but not curious enough that I want it leaked. I’d like to be surprised when my Pokemon evolve while I play the game.
