We don't know... it starting freezing up constantly whenever he would go online (and less frequently even when he didn't). I took a look at it but I couldn't find any spyware or anything rogue that would be causing it, so it's probably a hardware issue (he uses one of those laptop cooling pads with it so I don't think heat is an issue). Fortunately I don't have to share my computer with anyone... I just have to worry about having a usage cap on my internet.
It's an hour long show, and though it's a series the episodes aren't really linked... they profile a different scam artist each time but some of their tricks are very interesting... like the guy who rolled into a town and scammed the local church and its members out of thousands of dollars, or the one who gave out financial advice on the local news while conducting his scheme...
asdfghjkl; 300? Really? Wow. So what actually happened to the old one? We actually have a problem in our house. I get my own laptop once I graduate this year. We have a desktop and a laptop. Both of them can be quite laggy at times and it 6 of us and you know how that turns out? Life is hard sometimes xD
I watched the first one with my friends and I thought it was really long. They were convincing me it was a series but the first one was very long. For me at least. But since it's confirmed for me at least that it's a series I guess I have to watch the rest. They obviously thought it was boring, but I didn't. And I guess not all teenagers are boring lol
Ok, I will go back to sleep and edit this once I wake up xD
Yay! You fared better than my brother, who had to drop $300+ on a new laptop today (OUCH!) and found out his printer isn't compatible with WIndows 8... as a side note I HATE the new Windows 8 interface... But I am getting kinda lonely on here since nobody else has been talking to me lately and I really don't have anything to post about...
Well it's not actually a movie, it's a series that profiles real life scam artists. I find it interesting since I have a college degree in finance and I find the criminal justice system to be an interesting topic of discussion.
I'm afraid there's been no updates regarding these games, just the bizarre and sometimes ludicrous speculations of the peanut gallery. I swear, some of the ideas presented by people about what these games should have are downright ridiculous. I think it's coming out in October, so about a year since B2/W2, which is not enough time IMO. But at least you don't have to pick it up right on release date. And frankly, that female trainer is the ONLY thing I'm liking about it so far... that grass starter looks like it belongs in the Happy Tree Friends webseries, and I never really cared for that one... The other two ain't much better.
My brother said that once he buys a 3DS XL, I can get his old 3DS... of course with him having to buy a new computer, he's been set back on that goal a bit xD I'm actually borrowing it now in anticipation of Fire Emblem Awakening which I'm supposed to get from Amazon sometime next week.
Soooooo, we got it fixed. It's all okay now. It was just with the battery and some other things that I was obviously too ignorant to know about. I actually tried replying from my phone last week then the battery died and I just lost motivation xD
Oh I love American Greed. It was a pretty awesome movie when I first saw it
So, is there any new news on the games. January is over and it's already February which means I have to make a decision soon. October. Or was is November could be here any time. And I did get my friend to GIVE me her 3DS. She said she doesn't want it anymore and the new games will probably suck lol.
Hmmm... Check to see if the computer cooling fan is running... if it is you might need to buy one of those cooling pads. If the fan's dead, I think you'll have to end up replacing it... maybe replace that charger as well since it seems to be overheating too. My brother is still having issues with his computer... I took a look at it the other day but couldn't find anything wrong; I'll look at it again when he's web surfing on the weekend to see if it's the browser that's causing his to lock up.
I did see Annie (I think in school way back when), but there's a whole bunch of movies that I haven't watched that most people would think everybody has watched... there's plenty of movies I haven't seen, lol... I've come to prefer anime... or shows like American Greed. Ever seen that? Once they did a special on Bernie Madoff's life behind bars, lol
I've been on Tumblr to mainly look for fanart. Don't think I'll be creating an account there, just stalk there anonymously xD
Well, I've had issues with my service provider (not my computer itself) so if I'm not on for a while, that means I'm yelling four letter words at a customer service rep
Yeah it actually overheated again. Hence; the late reply. I could fry eggs on my computer charger if I wanted.
Ok car chase movies. Idk about those but the prequel to Monsters Inc.: Monsters University is going to be released this year. Wonder what it's gonna be like. I'm actually watching Annie right now as I type this. Orphan Annie. No car chases but amazing music. I think youve obviously watched it. It's a pretty old movie but yeah
Ok other than Pokemon is there anything else? Like, uh, have you ever heard of Tumblr? Or do you have one? You can like make your own website using it. It will obviously end with .tumblr.com but most of the people on there are teenagers who just post and reblog pictures with scattered picture web themes. People have many different interests like anime and stuff. I suggest you check it out. It's fun I guess.
So yeah. And if I don't reply again for some time I'm obviously waiting for my eggs to finish cooking.... lol.
Ah laptop troubles... I had to replace mine a few weeks ago and my brother told me today HE'S having trouble with his locking up and running slowly... hope he doesn't have to replace his too... He wants me to take a look at it next weekend; hopefully I can fix it for him as I've had to get rid of viruses and malware off it in the past.
Okay, but I really do like my movies with cars (see my username). Either cars or anime cuties lol. I'd be willing to bet I'm the only person to write Pokemon related stories that involve car chases xD
Same here (then again I said the same thing about W2 and ended up getting it, despite the presence of my most hated and the most overrated character in the franchise). Of course the difference is this time around I'd have to buy a system in addition to just the game. And my budget is tight enough as it is:/ And quite frankly, I've given up on the X/Y section of the site now. It's very little information and way too much people speculating and throwing out random ideas, 90% of which are horrible ideas that I hope DON'T make it into the game.
I actually was too lazy to reply on the first day. Twas one of those days. The second day I was in the middle of typing my reply and my laptop overheats and shuts down. So we had to fix the battery. Anywhoo...
Well, actually in the Hinger Games, the Us is divided into districts and each year a member or two is chosen from each district to go into battle of death. Only one person is standing last. Plot twist: two end up actually winning xD Wasnt a very good explanation but people die cos of bows and arrows and shabaz. Look up the plot on wikipedia. It's really great and the sequel Catching Fire will be released this year.
Yeah and about the games 50 50 chance I won't get them. I stopped just reading about it and yeah. So, if you find out anything new, tell me. I like spoilers just not thread spoilers lol
Yeah I lost the list but I still have two questions. I'll ask tomorrow. Pretty busy day today and all that.
Oh, the Pokemon anime... I haven't watched that disaster in years, lol
I think the problem is, there isn't anything that really excites me on the movie or TV front, and the music has gone downhill... The most recent movie I watched was Skyfall, the latest James Bond one. That movie you mentioned... are there lots of car chases and stuff exploding in it?
I know I'd rather have actual 3-D instead of that fake battle scene 3-D like they attempted in the 5th gen games (3-D and sprites do not mix). I'm not sure how moving around in the world is gonna work this time around either. I'm hoping for some more gameplay videos to see exactly how that's going to be pulled off. I'm actually kinda disappointed that we're getting it at the same time as the Japanese... I like to have Pokemon games come out there first so I can get a feel for the actual game and whether they're worth picking up. This time around, I feel like I'm jumping in blindly if I do get them...
Nah, ask 'em all if you want to xD I can take a lot of questions at once Especially since few others are asking...
Yeah, turns out she thought I asked how many pokemon Ash has. Still wrong though lol
You should continue doing that. I do but Im still in touch with current things. This generation of music is half terrible. The movies are great. You should watch the Hunger Games. Really epic and thrilling movie.
Still sorta confused about these new games. I just hope in months to come I will get more reasonable exceptions (or vice versa) to buy these games. The 3D is growing on me. Its actually not that bad. Pretty ok, it's just the idea of navigation that scares me. Playing the games will be so different. Like, the way you would see things hasn't really changed from gen 1 to 5 except for a few places in gen 5.
I actually made a list of questions. I'll choose two out of them xD
That's cool, I try to make it out to at least a couple conventions a year. They're a lot of fun and you meet some of the coolest people on the planet there lol
I'm just completely out of the loop when it comes to modern music... I think somewhere around 2001 or so I just stopped listening to radio altogether and relied on my MP3 collection on my computer to entertain me. Same thing with TV and movies, actually... the only media I do keep up with is anime, actually.
Sapphire and Emerald are... somewhere... we moved a couple years ago so they're probably in a box in a storage shed somewhere lol. At this point there's no way I'm getting a 3DS anytime in the near future. Oh well.
Yeah I get that. It's hard to remember all Pokemon but its useful sometimes when your friend answers "ten" when they are asked the total no of pokes. Like, who would answer ten? I just don't understand....
I went to a comic con once. I was twelve tho... I dressed up as wonder woman but with a lot of lace. I still have that costume. I looked so ridiculous.... But I was twelve xD
Lol I understand. Like I advise u don't listen to 1D. They're a boy band and they would ruin your life. But they are quite talented. And you should listen to Eliie. She's actually really amazing and her personality actually resembles yours in a way. I mostly do that to. I just sit in my room and my parents ask me what I'm doing and I reply "listening to Donna Summers". People actually judge me when I tell them I listen to a lot of 80s and 90s music. By I like modern music too. I just love The Beatles, ok? Listening to older music just takes me away from most of the crap these days
I actually lost my Sapphire. I still have my Ruby and Emerald tho but no Sapph. Yeah being able to get a 3DS would be nice.mbut I highly doubt for my birthday my parents would get me one. My dad once said Pokemon brings you down 50 iq levels. Hahahahaha no....
Yeah, she is nice and stuff.
Yeah I'll be sure to do that when I think of something to ask you lol
As for me, I only take the time to memorize the Pokemon I like and would actuaqlly have a chance of using... there's over 600 of 'em now and there's no way I could possibly remember all of them - much less their types or how best to confront them in battle. My play through W2 was mostly trial and error, as I'm *still* not used to the fifth generation of Pokemon.
Well, I just had an anime convention last weekend that was a lot of fun - it was a vacation for me too as I went *quite* far away from home and stayed in a hotel that was quite a bit more luxurious than I usually stay at. But yeah, I had a great time, saw some really good cosplays, and spent a lot of money on stuff lol. Other than that, not much happening around here... that's the big drawback of living in a small town. Nothing goes on and I can't wait to move.
Music wise, I mostly listen to older stuff so I have no idea who those singers/groups are that you mentioned lol. I'm actually into the pop/chart music but from way back... like the 1980's and 1990's xD
At one time, I had a game from each gen... but where my Blue, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, and Emerald games are now, I couldn't tell you. Well, actually my brother found my old Blue version but it doesn't save anymore, so... And the thing is, I don't even have a 3DS yet, so when these games do come out, it's gonna be at least $200 for both system and game. Which I cannot afford right now and I don't even know if I'll able to by October considering there's a good chance I'll be moving over the summer. Not enough of the games has been revealed for me to form really good opinions on it, but the 3D at the very least is going to make these games feel very different (I have a feeling it'll be the same battle engine though).
Well if nothing else, at least we know we'll be getting a good-looking girl trainer
Sorry I haven't message you for the past two days. We went out of town and the people we were staying at had limited wifi so I couldn't reply.
Anyways. I stopped playing Pokemon for such a long time I actually forgot most of the pokemons name. You can give me the name of a Pokemon for instance and there is a 50% chance I will be able to remember what it looks like. But if you show me a pic of a Pokemon there's only a 25% chance I will know it's name. I'm trying to educate myself on Pokemon more. I'm currently on the second gen of Pokemon to remember lol. I never really could name every Pokemon and automatically remember them but I could at least do it in two minutes or less.
So other than these new games, what else has been going on in your life? Besides anything Pokemon related really. I've been listening to music way more lately but I don't understand why people think chart music is just the best music ever and any other music is ****. I really like Ellie Goulding and for some reason I can highly tolerate one direction. I actually think the past year, Europe had way better music than most of America. I especially hate that "shine bright like a diamond song". I don't even know why I have it on my iPod but it's just terrible. So what kind of music do you listen to? :3
I hope the games are good too. I buy at least one game from each gen and it would suck to not have one from this gen. Also, I know they won't but if they went back to the NDS platform for the future games I would be happy. I'm just not too crazy about the 3D thing, ya know?
Yeah I thought the same thing. Shame that such a cute trainer design is being used for such a mediocre game :/ I don't have access to a 3DS at all and I don't know if I can save up enough for one by the fall... I definitely hope there isn't another Fighting-Fire type starter... there are already too many of those. I know I'm not using the grass starter since I never go with grass so it's between the other two.
LOL I don't know which of the two I'll get. but if Meowth/Persian appears in one and not the other, that could be the deciding factor. And I'll probably end up using mostly old Pokemon anyway. Kinda like I did for W2 actually
Even if I could transfer my save data I don't know that I'd want to start my W2 over again... it took me like 70+ hours to beat it lol.
I'm really hoping these new games turn out to be good despite what we've seen so far. I really want to like them if for no other reason than the cute girl trainer you play as.
