    -Why do you like Quality Inn so much?
    I think it started with their '90's logo which I always found classy with its black and gold colors:

    Nowadays, it's because of the price/value quotient. The Quality Inns I've stayed at have, for the most part, been good properties that have also been affordable. Yes, I've stayed in better hotels, like Embassy, Hampton, and Marriott, but they're also much more expensive. And, I just got back from an anime convention at a $250-$300 water park resort in Ohio where the rooms actually weren't as good as two of the local Quality Inns/Suites I use as "staycation" getaways.

    Of course, it could also have to do with staying in so many Quality Inns as a kid and not having any particularly negative experiences with any of them.

    -Favorite cosplay?
    Ooh, tough one. I'm gonna go with one of my newer cosplays (debuted at a con in April in SC) of an obscure character/series: Saki Mizukoshi from Natsuiro Kiseki:

    I like the style of the uniforms and cosplaying as a blond tsundere is always fun The show itself I found to be a very enjoyable as a short, relaxing series that few know about and even fewer cosplay from. I'm trying to bring recognition to the series and look cute at the same time haha
    The skirt on my Leaf cosplay (recently retired) didn't look terribly accurate. However, if you ask my friends in the NC/SC con scene, they'll tell you I'm best known for my Sailor Mercury cosplay xD Serena (old, X/Y game look) is the newest addition to my cosplay lineup.

    -What do you want Game Freak to do next with Pokemon?
    Pokemon girls fashion game! The outfit customization in X/Y was almost a game unto itself, but it still lacked in variety. Anything where I can put Leaf into a ballerina outfit, Dawn in a maid outfit, and Serena in a wedding dress would be a major winner for me.

    Part of me also wants to see a game where the "evil team" is a huge investment company involved in securities fraud and their boss is a Bernie Madoff-like character. A lot of the minigames would involve financial investigation and detective work.

    And cars. Cars should be a viable mode of transportation in a Pokemon game. Especially large station wagons with the fake wood on the side.

    Top 10 List #15: Favorite Anime Idols

    That's a lot of freaking time to spend on that.

    Also, Maki #1 but no Nico in the top 10? This list is clearly and wholly unscientific. :P

    I don't think I know enough anime idols to even have a top ten myself, though, haha.

    That's more discounted passes than the largest convention in my area gives out for TOTAL passes, sweet mercy.

    Well, it is the biggest anime-centered convention on the East Coast (eastern cons larger than Otakon are multi-genre events like NYCC and Dragoncon), and as I type this less than 5700 of those slots remain and it's only been open for about a week. Total attendance is capped at 35,000. Based on last year though, I think they could cut it to 30,000 or even 25,000 - it was VERY crowded.

    I'd say go for it. If using that alt account would feel like a nice fresh start to you, then you should do what would make you most comfortable!

    No, I'd say having an issue with how the entire region is laid out is a major problem with the game.

    Calem is a tool who needs to go back to Orre where everyone has a dumb nonsensical name.

    It certainly is messed up And now with 3000-year old giants and adventures in space, things are only getting more bizarre.

    As for the whole Oldsmobile Omega thing, it's pretty much the name "Omega Ruby." Pretty much the same as my whole deal with Pokemon Centers and Red Roof Inns (especially with the in-game dialogue "Look for their red roof.")

    5. We're Still Violating Laws In The Intro.
    Seat belt and child endangerment laws, to be exact. I've commented on this before. Norman and your character's mother win my award for "Most Negligent and Deadbeat Parents in a Pokemon Game." These two treat your character - their child - with the same importance they treat a box of plates or a bookshelf. They stuff you into the cargo area of a moving truck with a complete lack of concern for your safety, and when you arrive, somehow having survived the whole traumatic ordeal, your mother makes a snide comment, "Oh, it must have been rough back there."

    No, it was freaking DEADLY back there! One sharp turn, and your character might have been headed to the coroner's office instead of Birch's lab.
    The Pokemon world is so screwed up lol
