    So Target is supposed to have a B2G1F sale on 3DS Pokemon games. I just got X from Best Buy the other day, so I was thinking of returning it and buying X, Y and Ruby, since I already own Sapphire.

    My question is, is it even worth it to get Y and Ruby, if I already have X and Sapphire?

    Personally, I don't think so.

    That's what I'm thinking. I haven't even gotten out of the first city in Sapphire, I played like 5 minutes of X, and I recently got White 2 used and haven't even started that. So I definitely wouldn't be playing either of the other two.

    But still, the idea of getting Pokemon games for roughly $25 each really entices me, especially given how much they tend to cost used later on. I feel like it would almost be a smart move collector-wise. But I still can't help but feel like they're just going to be sitting there.

    If you're only getting them for resell value then sure. Pokemon games tend to keep their value well and usually go up.

    Yeah, I got a 3DS and a Ps4 in the same week and I haven't really been able to get into any game for either for too long. I'm really feeling Yellow again, but I just don't have the time for it.

    I mean I'm not really planning on re-selling. I guess part of me just wants to own every single game, as a collector. Like I'm also considering getting Black and Black 2 along with another DS game from Gamestop for just $60. But I'm kinda worried that I've been spending too much money on games lately.

    Yeah I went crazy on Black Friday because I bought almost 25 games on sale and barely even touched the likes of Witcher, Metal Gear, and Arkham Knight. Not because I don't like them, but because I want to save them for when I have a good 5-6 hours to play and get immersed in the stories, which I rarely have these days.

    For 3DS, I'm still halfway through OoT, A Link Between Worlds, and Fire Emblem: Awakening and Conquest/Birthright.

    It really weird how I have so many new games, but the ones I've spent the most time with are remakes, remasters , and re-releases.

    So I picked up Omega Ruby, X and Y from Target (had to return the sealed copy of X to Best Buy) and I also picked up Black and Black 2 from Gamestop with their B2G1F sale.

    So I pretty much have almost every Pokemon RPG game for DS and 3DS. Now I prefer playing Gen 1 games because I am most familiar with them, but looking through X and Y, I really like how those worlds look and the semi-3D nature of the environments. Not to mention the customization options. So I'm thinking X is going to be the game I choose to focus on first.

    Paid off my Pokken pre-order. Was pretty on the fence about it, as I think the roster should be bigger, but every new video I see makes it look cooler and cooler.

    What I mean is how the camera sort of gets up close to the character. It's very reminiscent of how GTA III had a bit of the classic top-down view, but also got you close to the character.

    There's a part in the beginning of X/Y where the camera gets really low and it just looks like what I would expect a console version of one of the games to look like.

    Step up and get your first look at Pokémon Go

    Gotta catch them all? If you ever felt like the handheld worlds in the Pokémon games were ultimately too small, then get ready for Pokémon Go, the augmented reality title that uses the entire world as its playscape.
    Pokémon Go uses iOS and Android apps to interact with surroundings, challenging players to visit real world locations to capture critters and battle with others. The Pokémon people said that they’ll be doing an initial playtest of the game in Japan with a global rollout in later 2016.
    Curious how this game might function? Visitors to SXSW this month were treated to a short preview of a player capturing Ivysaur with the game — and naturally, someone recorded that preview for your edification. Check it out after the break!

    Detective Pikachu’s First Case Is A Walk In The Park, Literally. March 24, 2016 . 6:30pm


    Detective Pikachu rides on decades old clichés set up in detective dramas here in Japan and yet, somehow, it never loses itself in these themes and fully remembers the world it originates from.

    Detective Pikachu looks like a game that was completely separate from Pokemon at one point. But then somebody from Nintendo got stoned and asked "Dude what if Pikachu was a detective?" and they just ran with it.

    It looks amazing.

    From what was told to us on siliconera by British otaku who is mod and reporter there and who I do talk to at times from there he had some experience with it next to the repoter that wrote it as well . It seems detective pikachu is some what episodic from what he's sayingand there will be more . So what was posted above isn't the whole game. we'll see if that's the case.

    as quoted

    Yeah, but still, it seems like you basically posted a step-by-step plot summary of the available episode. I mean, I don't know who was looking forward to that thing for its plot or anything, but you really should have spoiler tagged it, or at least gave some indication of the spoiler content.

    sorry for taking too ling to get back and answer this/ yeah I had in my head I should have done this but never got around to doing so.

    And for that I'm sorry. I guess I was too eager to see see what was going down in the superman vs batman thread and post there . Again I'm sorry and I'll make it a point to put up spoilers as I should have done .
