I don't really mind the new art style of the games. It's really cool looking imo.

I think the graphics are pretty good and are a jump from the regular old sprites. I have to say I think this full 3D game was completely unexpected and something I didnt see happening especially because Junichi Masuda has said that he prefers sprites and sees them as an art form. I guess he changed his mind though. I hope to see the graphics improve further as more games are made.

Bleh, yeah X&Y to me just seems like more of the same - just with more 3D. I miss the big heads and vibrant colours of Gen IV and HGSS.

It's been an hour.

I'm over here almost laughing over Facebook. I was talking to some people I don't know this morning. One of them PM'd me to invite me to a group on Facebook...intended for mothers. Um. .___. I'm not quite sure how to explain to her that I'm a teenager and not a mother.


Edit:
Ninja'd.
Uh.
I honestly don't see the big deal with the 3D factor on X and Y. I've seen games played on a 3DS and it messed with my eyes more than anything else. I'm also a little annoyed that I have to buy a 3DS now.

As for general graphics, I guess it's cool for them to look more realistic. But I doubt it ever will seriously seem realistic.

Tch, she isn't the kind of person I want to pick an online fight with. ;D Incredibly snarky, but very funny, as well. I'll reply eventually and explain, so she doesn't think I'm just ignoring her.
I hadn't even realized that people who aren't on my friends list are able to PM me on facebook. x:

It's an understandable mistake, considering the group we met on just happens to be mostly parents. T: She has no idea that I'm a teenager, nor does anyone else on that group. I usually am just a lurker there, so the only people who really know me are people who I know offline.

I hate the fact that they can do that. I get so much spam from random people sometimes on FB. :I

Really?
I've never been spammed there, aside from my friends joking around. I did make a fake account to stalk someone once, just to mess with them. x;

I used to get friend requests from strangers, so now the option is blocked unless I have a mutual friend with them. I still don't add all of the people who send requests, though, including relatives.

I just get pictures of all my friends having babies. It's horrible, as they all think that their spawn is the bestest most awesomest thing in the entire world and WON'T SHUT UP ABOUT IT! It's seriously annoying.

Is it cool with you if I add this to my signature? X}

Most of the stuff in my news feed is from the mentioned group, tbh. They post interesting stuff, at least. My friends usually aren't annoying, but I get tired of them constantly posting photography. I:

I ended up replying to her, (kindly) explaining myself. She replied something about corrupting the morals of a minor, then remarked that she enjoys my posts and thinks that I'll make a wonderful mother someday.

Uh. How does one reply to that? Haha.

Thank you, and then ignore her forever. Assuming you don't know who she is.

I...kind of know her. Not offline, though. I know her name (obviously), that she homeschools, has 10 children (holy arceus...), and is very snarky, but funny. The more I think into this, it's creepy for us to actually talk over Facebook, hmm? x:

Oh gosh. The lack of sleep is getting to me. I just read a post on Facebook about smoking a chicken...but, in my mind, they weren't referring to means of cooking it. And now the idea of it is very amusing. Once again, lack of sleep. Probably shouldn't be on the internet when I'm this tired. X}

Yeahhh. I can tell by her posting that she's wary of letting the subject go astray (they currently are discussing alcohol) because she knows I'm there. T: I'm just not going to reply to her message. If I get a chance, I'll join in on their joking again, so she (hopefully) will catch that she doesn't have to worry about watching what she posts.

Or if anyone wants to suggest how I can drop that hint via PM without ending up being forced into a conversation...?
I dunno. She apologized and seemed unhappy that she almost added me to the group. Makes me wonder what goes on there. I:

Tch, well are we your friends or are we just some weirdos?
I'm teasing. Us weirdos love you, too.

you weirdos. you're like, sooooo weird. what are you, weird? anyways.

I don't care much about Facebook because nobody ever talks to me on there except for homework lol :p i'm lonely

What I hate though is the "I BET YOU CAN'T BALANCE THE NUMBER OF LIKES AND COMMENTS" posts that keep popping up on my wall.

Yeah same here! I know like 6 people on my fb who all just had babies, and while there are a couple that are cool about it, it just feels like I am getting spammed with baby pictures.

And by making a wonderful mother, I think she means more that you have a good head on your shoulders, and would make a good leader/inspiration :3 So nothing to feel awkward about methinks. (Well that's how I would take it.)
And IMO it was also a common mistake that she were to add you to the group since.. well.. teenagers can be mothers nowadays. It was a bit strange that she'd assume that though, before asking you. Maybe she was so thrilled about her own kid that she wanted to spread the motherly love to everyone hahaha :333

Yeah, I can certainly understand the mistake, considering my age isn't on my profile and I'm not actually /in/ my profile picture or that background image that I can't remember the name of.

Tch at least you guys have stuff in your news feed. ;D
Seriously. The only times I talk to people, it's discussing Pokemon with two guys I know. Or being spammed with messages by one of them.

I feel like the baby picture spam is only relevant to you older folks. D;

Still young! Just older than me

I definitely missed a lot. If I read well, the conversation was on Jess who is ready to be a mother and Dipu who thought we were weirder than him and it's now on baby pictures on FB? Receive my respect DCC.
Anyways I'm not going to have a child anytime soon. Gotta enjoy life before.

I once used Facebook a lot, nowadays I just left it in the dust because PC took my activity away lol.

But as for baby pictures, I don't really like seeing them especially considering life as a parent would be a pain for me, I can't even tolerate childbirth lol. And I love talking to you guys way too much anyways!

I'm gonna have to leave soon because I have work but I just wanted to jump in for a bit hehee.

Woah, I totally took this the wrong way and panicked for a second because I thought you had the wrong idea. D;

DCC is so interesting over the weekend haha.
I would also have baby pictures spammed on my facebook by my aunt, but her posts no longer show up in my news feed. I was tired of her ranting and posting horribly taken pictures. But she totally obsesses over her granddaughter and it's annoying.

I like to keep in touch with old uni friends (most of them moved away from Toronto too) and co-workers/friends I met on my internship a few years ago. So some new some old, but I hardly like to update my own feed. I just stick to FB messages to chat with people once in a while to keep in touch.
(Inb4 "why don't you skype, Kura?".. Well like I said, they moved away so.. different timezones makes that difficult.)

What was that wrong idea Jessy-Jess?
I almost don't use FB anymore. I never talk to anyone so why keep it? I just randomly stalk people in there.
