    GET HYPE

    From what I heard, it'll be streaming on Neon Alley and Hulu Plus. No word yet on whether it will eventually be released on free version Hulu.

    Future blog series? (Brainstorming ideas)

    What I do with my Top 10 lists is if I don't have enough, I just make a Top 5 instead; isn't exactly 10, but it's still a nice number. Best of luck with the series, I hope it's very successful! (:

    Pokemon X/Y Detailed Review

    LOL for HG/SS and all of 5th gen, I kept telling myself that I wasn't going to buy the games, and ended up buying them anyway... and then later selling them back to Gamestop. Looks like you have more self control than me For me, for some reason I get these urges to play Leaf Green over again, just because. And I totally want them to base a game on North/South Carolina.

    Like I said in the review, customizing was the big draw for me this time around (it certainly wasn't the godawful rivals :/). I would have liked more frilly, floral items so I could make my trainer more closely resemble Lisa, but it's a cool feature nonetheless. And now not everyone looks the same when you link battle

    I think there's a more general trend toward making these games easier, sadly. The stat mechanics are out in the open. The Exp. Share has a major upgrade. Trainers use fewer Pokemon than before, including Gym Leaders and the Elite Four. And now you have characters (like those pitiful excuses for rivals) practically telling you where to go instead of having you figure it out yourself.

    Ugh, don't remind me of that thing. Seriously, that thing's voice should be used as a means of psychological and mental torture in military prison camps.

    Pokemon game music has mostly been pretty blah to me. Exceptions include the Aqua/Magma boss battle theme, the Cynthia battle theme, and some of the tunes in Emerald's Battle Frontier.

    About cameos: I didn't mind it when Jasmine showed up in D/P/Pt; I actually thought that was pretty cool. HG/SS started to go overboard with it, but then 5th gen totally went off the deep end. They had this battle facility where EVERY SINGLE gym leader, champion, and overrated, title-stealing a-hole living in a cave showed up, which IMO would practically cripple a region since, like, all of their Gym leaders went AWOL. And it doesn't help that half the time, I was asking myself, "Who are these people?"

    Yeah though, there's quite a bit in these games, and you can get the gist of the storyline and stuff through reading about it.

    Thanks for reading

    Pokemon X/Y Detailed Review

    I personally drew the line at HG/SS and decided that I didn't want to buy any of the newer pokemon games, just because the old ones suit me fine, and because I don't play videogames as often anymore. But it's still interesting to know where the Pokemon franchise is heading. It's interesting that they based the region off of France. I wonder if they'll start a trend with that in future games, basing regions off of real countries. That would definitely add a cool dimension.

    I think it's nice that they finally included trainer customizations. I remember thinking about how cool that would be way back in GBA time, but in retrospect, I guess with the tiny 2D sprites you wouldn't have been able to do much. Maybe just change the colors of your clothes or change from a skirt to shorts, but even then that wouldn't have made a big difference on the pixelated screen. I can tell that in these games, you can enjoy the outfit you created.

    They're really putting the sportlight on these game mechanics now, aren't they? I never cared much for competitive battling, so I don't feel strongly either way about it, but it's definitely giving the player more power. But I'll say this -- I always thought it was cool how the old games didn't tell you much about their inner mechanics and left everything for you to figure out. It made things more fun, and gave you more satisfaction when you uncovered things yourself. (Even if you went online to get the answers from somebody else, it still felt like you were doing some undercover mission and getting secrets not everyone was privy to.) I remember getting out a Braille chart to decipher the cave texts in Fire Red, and feeling like I was on top of the world when I finally realized what they meant.

    And whoa, instead of the regular Pikachu cry, they actually come out saying "Pikachu" or "Pikapika" in the game? I can see how that would be jarring. But I guess since Pikachu is the mascot and all, they'd be fine with doing it...

    As for tuning out the in-game music with regular music, I did that with HG/SS. For me, the best music in Pookemon was Hoenn, and after that Sinnoh, then Kanto. I look it up on Youtube just to listen to it.

    I actually like cameo appearances from other games, even if they're not completely logical. It makes everything feel connected.

    But all in all, from what you're written, I can see that these games are packed with stuff. Reading this has certainly gotten me interested in these games, and though I won't buy them, I'll still read more about them. Nice review!

    Holy crap, I've been neglecting this thing...

    Thanks, I'll look into that. I don't use fabric softener regularly because it dries out and irritates my skin, but it might be fine to use on the long strands in back.

    Normally I wouldn't care as much but this time it *is* for a photoshoot so I don't want to look like a wreck lol

    Really, Quality Inn?

    The thought of problems with certain "activities" did cross my mind. Still (a) this location has interior hallway access to rooms, whereas these type of people usually prefer the motels where you enter right from the parking lot (quick escape if the cops show up, plus they don't have to sneak their "clients" past the front desk); and (b) rates here are around $59-$69 where cheaper $30-$40 places are found just a mile down the road. It's also not in a bad section of town, though like I said there's a bad section not far down the road (there are a lot of bad sections in my city though )

    Maybe my definition of quality is just much different than yours.

    If they have a "solicitation" problem, it makes some sense, but a 30 mile radius is quite a large radius, even if it is typically only an hour drive one way at most.

    What's worse: On their online booking site, they make no mention of this policy.

    As for their "quality," I think it depends on which one it is. I've stayed in one Quality Inn that was an absolute dump, and two others that were borderline dumps, compared with about 8 that were nice.

    If I had the disposable income, I'd definitely stay more often at Embassy Suites, though - the one I stayed at for my latest convention was really nice.

    Doesn't make sense to me why they'd do this.. but then again I've always thought Quality Inn was a bit lacking on the ...quality side of things.

    Seriously getting fed up with this place...

    I like trolling like that

    Anyway, something really weird was going on with the alarms this morning. They would start up, then switch off, then start up again in about 30-45 seconds, and shut off again. They did this about 4 or 5 times so I'm thinking it's a technical issue instead of people being jerks. I really hope they get these things repaired.

    I'm trying to save up enough money to move somewhere else in town (or ideally to one of the nicer suburbs). I'm here now because rent's cheap and I can walk to Wendy's and Target
