I started playing Pokemon Black earlier, and was so bored that I turned off the DS before I even reached the second town. Couldn't help but think I'd wasted my money - although I suppose I didn't give it that much of a chance.
At the very least, it means it won't cut away from the time I'm spending making this game. So hopefully there's no reason for progress to slow down.
Obviously I'm only speaking for myself, and I hope the release of B/W doesn't hinder the progress of some fantastic fangames here in this community, which I'm also looking forward to more than I am returning to my Pokemon Black.
Hope you enjoy your Spring Break.
