    Just got done with the initial debug of the retropie I put together for my wife. She saw commercials for the remastered spyro games, but we both weren't about to buy a console for 1 game.

    That got me thinking, and pulled the trigger on her birthday present for this year. Went together pretty smoothly, especially for me not being the 1s and 0s savvy type.

    Ended up playing through all of Tomba, you know... to make sure it all works appropriately. Nostalgia overload.
    Took me a little longer than usual, but beat it in 5 hrs and only had 8 of 130 events (missions) incomplete. I forgot you couldn't go back in to the game and finish out the last few missions.

    If you haven't played it, it's worth it. Well put together, good jokes.

    Was curious, looks like the fastest speedruns of it are in an hour, whereas most streams of it do it in 5-6 hrs. Still fun on the replay value.

    Tomba 2 is a lot more involved... maybe that's because of the 3rd dimension.

    Takes a bold man to post a thread about his wife's "pie." Particularly when the discussion centers on how to make the pie work and how it plays.
