-Beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow for the first time. I agree with everyone who says it's awesome and think it's almost as good as Symphony of the Night! I will be picking up Dawn of Sorrow in the future!
-Attempted Boss Rush and failed. Multiple times. I can understand being stripped of most of my healing items so it'll be a challenge, but I hate how I'm reduce to level 40. I wasn't too much higher than that, but it's still annoying to be weakened.
-Enjoyed listening to some themes in Sound Mode, primarily "Heart of Fire", Julius Belmont's awesome theme.
-Began playing and beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow as Julius on Hard Mode in just over an hour.
-Attempted the Boss Rush again, this time as Julius but ended up dying to the same exact boss I did as Soma Cruz. Again, multiple times.
-Attempted Boss Rush as Soma a few more times as Soma. Deja vu. Damn you Balore! Even with Iron Golem (prevents me from flinching when getting hit), you manage to knock me away fom you! I was sure that Iron Golem coupled with Medusa Head (allows me to levitate in mid-air) would've been the percect combo to use on you! For some reason, when fighting it with Julius, my strategy involving me repeatedly using my dash, which I'm untouchable during, until it's safe and then the Axe to hit the eye isn't working nearly as well as it was in the main game.
