    My In-Depth B2/W2 Review

    When you say 'in-depth', you really mean it. :P From the perspective of someone who's never owned a B/W game, I'd say this review provides a detailed, yet not spoiling glimpse of the game that potential buyers will appreciate. (I was completely lost as to what the C-Gear was, but after reading up on its actual function, I understood the horror you described xP) If you're looking to post this on Amazon or Ebay, then I suggest elaborating on bits and pieces such as these for those who might be buying this as their very first pokemon game. And if you're worried about length, then perhaps cut back on things that you'd have to be an experienced pokemon gamer to appreciate.

    I actually like the 'friend rival' device when it's used properly. I think it was well done in DPPt. But the way it's done in B2W2 makes it seem like your character has a coach, not a rival. I can imagine the rival standing there and shouting "On my signal, use Tackle!" or some other attack when your character is about to face a Team Plasma member. (In which case I'd simply aim the attack at him and be done with it. hehe)

    All in all, this was a great review. The pros/neutrals/cons list at the end really helped. I'm not a fan of number ratings because I find them vague, but it's a good added touch, since you've got the detail to back it up. It seems totally fine to me length-wise, because I like reading walls of text for some unfathomable reason, but you be the judge.

    My In-Depth B2/W2 Review

    Thanks for the comments! It took me almost a month to compile this review, and I do like going in-depth and explaining my thoughts clearly so others know where I stand. There's usually good and bad in everything I review (from games to hotels to fan fictions) and I like to point out both sides. And I've seen the B2/W2 reviews on Amazon, and they're almost all the "5 stars this game rox!" ones. Maybe I should edit up this one a bit (because it might be too long for their site) and post this review up on Amazon as well.

    The only problem with doing other game reviews, is that I haven't really been buying a lot of games lately to review. Maybe once NISA announces the US release for Atelier Ayesha (the next game I'm really looking forward to) I can post a review of that one.

    Thanks again! Glad you enjoyed reading!

    My In-Depth B2/W2 Review

    Nice blog post! This review was really interesting to read, and I could tell it was very well thought out. I found it to be a good read, and it made me question my own take on the games.

    Keep up the awesome blog posts! :D

    My In-Depth B2/W2 Review

    This is a really good review, well done, and made with plenty of effort, too! You've explained the key features well and in good manner, and I think all your points are fair. You showed 2 sides to the game and have really gone all out doing this. Your overall rating is accurate, I don't think much people's rating would've been higher than yours except from mega-happy 10-year-olds who just beat the E4 and would've given a 10. You were very passionate in your words, which is a good thing, and spoke how you truly felt about everything.

    You should think about doing these kind of reviews in the VG forum, it could use with some more activity.

    But seriously, this is amazing! <3

    My White 2 Playthrough Part 4!

    I hope you've got Heart Scales on you. Otherwise, you're going to have a really hard time getting your Espeon a psychic-type move.

    I don't know about your player character, but my player character has made close to 7 figures in just 2 weeks! :P Clearly Pokemon Trainers are far more valued in Unova than in other lands.

    1. They're okay except for the craptacular pixelated battle sprites, which look bad and are about the same quality as Super Mario Bros. for the NES (back in 1985!)

    2. They're alright, though none of them have proven themselves worthy to replace my default (also Lisa's) team.

    3. Depends on several factors, including what the female player character looks like and whether or not a certain rodent-obsessed homicidal psychopath who speaks through a machine rears his ugly head again after another prison escape... if ya know what I mean I'm not buying any Hoenn-remake games though... wayyyyy too much water - it's almost like Archie's succeeded before the game even starts...

    4. Persian, because of its elegant looks and the fact that I can use its Pay Day to make me filthy rich

    5. Remove the aforementioned rodent-obsessed homicidal psychopath who speaks through a machine from the world tournament in the new games, and give the female playable trainer in that game a proper skirt/dress instead of those weird shorts. I'd keep the black tights though... those look stylish

    6. Potatoes. But only in french fry form xD

    and either Probopass or Vespiquen, I'm still trying to decide between the two.

    Two reasons: 1) I don't really like the other two starters, and 2) I always like to have a good Water-type early on. Plus in his final form he can Megahorn any Grass types who dare stand in his way.

    Nicknamed him Vince in my game, BTW.

    I keep what I get the first time. This makes those cool numbers I get, such as 32323 and 04001, more cool. :o
