Now that the holidays are over the local stores have completely given up on having Transformers. It’s total bunk because they finally started making some really great ones that I want, and I really don’t want to play the online buying game. These generations guys are just the best though. Swerve, Rhinox, Skids, I mean, come on. That said, I also really want a Grapple to go with my Hoist. I loved their friendship in the cartoon. Grapple was such a tortured artist. Ah well, whatayagonnado?
The other day I contacted another artist who is way more in to Pokémon than me. She breeds tons of them apparently, and I never really restarted my Pokémon Y game after the data disaster. I don’t think I even made it to the second town. Anyway I came up with a list of my dream team and asked if she would breed me a superior group of them. I’m going to focus on my team, rather than catching Pokémon all scattershot and rotating new ones in and out. That way I will have a powerful team by the time I reach the bosses, then I can go back and catch pokemon later, if I can be bothered. I just don’t have the kind of time for the old catch em all mentality. It’s time to evolve, so I can get more games played in general. X3
Games like Link Between Worlds, which is just clever and fantastic. I’ve played quite a bit of it in little bits. It’s surprisingly easy to play a little and come back to without getting lost. Nintendo really got the handheld feel right with it. Plus, the actual play is fun in a way that makes me want to come back to it. I don’t feel like I’m being forced to do mundane things, which was a problem with Minish cap and several other Zelda titles.
All I have to say is that even if the WiiU is being called a failure the 3DS certainly isn’t. It’s been a fantastic system with superior games. I wasn’t sure at first, it took a while for the real winners to show up, but when they did it was awesome. I hope that happens for the WiiU. I’m really looking forward to Mario Kart 8 and Smash Brothers Dickpunch. (From what little I’ve played of Mario 3d world I think the system has already paid for itself in terms of the fun I’m going to have, so whatever. I just want it to keep going.)
As long as I’m thinking about it, you remember that toy I couldn’t decide if I had or not? I finally decided that I didn’t ever have it and the false memory came from a really in depth review by David Willis. (Who is a cartoonist who really likes Transformers if you aren’t familiar with his work.) I’m fairly certain about this now. Although if I ever come across said item while cleaning I’ll let you know…
