In my eyes, the trainers are evil!

So, I have seen the credits for Pokémon Black Version. All I can say is "OK, what?" They screwed with way the Elite 4 works, but apparently after beating them at level 48-50, I can now challenge them at 71-78 with a proper champion. Kill me now. However, there are three more towns that I have not seen, as well as a mission to find the remaining big-wigs of Team Plasma. I suspect that the level plateaus keep going up. That is to say if I do not use my sister's Action Replay first. This is dragging on. I admit, I dawdled, but 39 hours is quite a bit. I would say it was worth the $35. At least I can now start loading over Pokémon from the old DS games now. You know what that means? Ditto! Breeding ahoy! People may hate the new Pokémon, but like I said when everyone hated on Diamond/Pearl/Platinum's set... At least these are better than the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald set. I am sure I will derive new favorites from these. People should really take off the nostalgia glasses and give the rest of the 649 a chance. What is funny is that Team Plasma's entire platform is the assumption that trainers are inherently evil by abusing their Pokémon. Unfortunately for all that jazz, there is more going on behind the scenes. Too bad you do not get an idea of what until the Elite 4. I am not sure I liked combining the plot elements of the league and the gang, but I buy it. At least you see the Gym leaders do more than be lame.


In actual news, Nintendo and Sony have given $7,000,000 to Japan. Count the zeroes, that's millions. How nice of them. Namco also donated $1,200,000. I guess that is to say that these gaming tycoons are not heartless. I cannot help but feel there could have been more. Nintendo, alone, generates over $2,200,000,000 a year. Am I alone in thinking there are more zeroes there? Do not even look at Sony (since they do more than video games).

Also, lately there has been new talk of the Wii 2. As you may or may not know, Nintendo is regarded as always releasing the next gen roughly every five years. The "Wii 2" is up next and everyone is concerned. The Wii and the end of the DS marks a time where Nintendo stops paying attention to the gamer market and taps the supposed casual market. People are mad. It happens. Frankly, I remember the day the name "Wii" was announced and knowing at that moment that it may not be what we expect. There is a lot to say about a name. The Nintendo Revolution had you pumped, but the Nintendo Wii? What is that? A flaccid penis, methinks. Nintendo can either sell out or return to quality, but who cares? I certainly will not stand the shame of waiting in line 21 hours for a Nintendo console again. Though, it was amusing driving by the Best Buy line and showing them the very system they have to wait another eight hours for.

GAMING MUSIC
I have not played this title in particular, but I enjoyed this song on their commercial. Something about the attitude and laid-back music that amuses me. At least gaming does embrace humor on occasion. We really should not take ourselves so seriously.

  3. I tend to buy games only when I can get a dollar per hour of gameplay. If you played for 39 hours for 35 bucks, it seem s worth it, at least to me.

  11. Think the release of the Wii 2 will be delayed as a result of the current goings-on in Japan?

  20. "You aren't even a dragon type!" LOOOL!!

    Yeah, I agree on the note that the gym leaders are actually doing something rather than eat shit and wait for trainers to come by...hobos.

    I recently picked up Pokemon Black and I was blown away how you can connect to wifi and battle friends AND talk with them...on the DS/DSi.

    :O

    ahhh, i remember the good old days...original gameboy and gameboy color.

  21. I certainly not going to line up for so many hours, but some consoles ship with very few units. Like the 3DS, it seems it is going to be sold out in matter of days

  28. wonder when they'll make a pokemon game with 3 typed pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nintendo DS Lite can play GBA games, but not GB/C. Nintendo DSi doesn't play GBA either.

    I've been wondering where the new types are. I like the idea of 3-typed Pokémon.

  30. Lol, love the comic.

    Always thought Gyrados was a dragon, guess not >>.
    But yea, pray theres never a 3 type pokemon game.
