God dammit I just saw the player characters for the new Pokemon games and I think you all should have your days made more miserable too.
Category: Pokemon X
Okay, stood in line with the rest to get my shiny new pokegame, yay! Also, Gamestop apparently didn’t keep track of who got a preorder poster and who didn’t, because they gave me another one, also yay! Actually this was a good move on their part, I actually really wanted two since they’re double-sided and the possibility they might accidentally double their bonus means I’ll probably preorder from them again.
Pokemon X requires my 3ds do a system update. Last time I did this, my PS3 stopped working. Also, this system update appears to just be to prevent me from doing “unauthorized” anything. Luckily, the 3ds seems to be more robust.
Now it’s not reading my game.
Last time, my character changed out of her perfectly good pajamas and into her terrible official outfit.
I go down in the hopes Mom will tell me to go back up and take off the designer’s fetish outfit, but she’s fine with it.
Last time, I decide my avatar has too much of her own personality to be me and decide to try playing this under pacifist rules for her.
Ah, and only a few restarts to get a female, excellent. I’m also going to try to get all female pokemon this game.
Back to catching pokemon!
Last time, finished with the forest!
I make it to the pokecenter, only for Orange to show up and explain them to me. And apparently they’re keeping the combined center/mart aspect. But anyway, now Bunnelby the dumb is on my team too. (more…)
Last time, first badge! At the gate outside, the stopping-me dialogue repeats until she sees I do have the badge.
Okay, time to explore Lumiose! (And avoid saving any more just in case it’s chance that makes the bug kill games.)
Last time, crazy villain flamehair and his creepy conversation with popular actor lady!
The people in this cafe appear to actually be at one because they like drinking coffee and most of the conversation is about that. How interesting.
A town where you can taste the ages.
Okay, so the guy at the start of the pathway to the mansion said the way back was harder, but it’s really a very optional harder. Still, into the tall grass! It’s extra tall and very nice looking. I’m reliving my found memories of running around in marshes when I was little. (more…)
Last time, the daycare! Also backtracking and evolution.
Last time, I took a shortcut through a cave that was actually a shortcut, and also got a new pokedex despite that making no sense.
Last time, I got fossils!
Right then, let’s find out what the sail fossil holds.
Time for the gym!
First, to the clothes store to get outfits for the gym! (more…)
