-Began playing Castlevania; Symphony of the Night as Richter Belmont from where I left off last time. After dying many times, I finally made it to the Castle Keep via Clock Tower. While getting beaten a bunch of times, I realized that keeping Holy Water with me is the best thing I can do with Richter because of Hydro Storm, which only requires a few hearts. That move is ridiculously cheap and, from what I hear, will make short work of pretty much anything not Galamoth, the only truly difficult boss in the game. I knew that it was powerful, but I really wanted to use some of the other items as well.
-Began wondering why playing as Julius is more fun than playing with Richter. Realized that it's easier to get around the castle as Julius than Richter because the the parts that require me to jump extremely high via uppercut only requires me to press L (which allows for spamming) rather than Down+Up+X and because, frankly, Julius is overpowered compared to a rather fragile Richter, which kinda makes sense since from what I remember reading, Belmonts get stronger with each generation. Even so, Julius is an old man in Aria of Sorrow and Richter is pretty young in Symphony of the Night. Yes, I know none of that has any real meaning when it comes to actual gameplay, but still...
-Killed a boss in seconds using Hydro Storm. Made it to the inverted castle after many attempts at using the uppercut in mid-air. Went to the same boss room, inverted, and killed the new boss in seconds. Bosses and all enemies onscreen go down in seconds is a pretty hilarious thing to view.
-After many attempts, made it to the inverted Outer Wall, or whatever its new name was. Died to the boss because I wasn't paying attention but beat it in seconds when fighting it again.
