Ashley spends all her time playing games and studying languages, and it's a miracle she's not burned out on the whole thing after being a game addict since '89 (shout out to Love Shack by The B-52s). Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
