I saw this, and I saw the price, and said “Why not?”
I really liked Duke Nukem 3D, even the port on Nintendo 64. It was a really great game. I was disappointed to hear how terrible Duke Nukem Forever did in the end. I keep telling myself “It’s not as bad as people say it is, right?” Well… Guess I’ll find out for myself. I really want to like the Duke, I really like his character. He’s just so 90s and cheesy, I love it.
But yeah. I shall take the plunge sometime and find out for myself. I’ll probably have a good time regardless, because I have a thing for bad games anyway (if it is bad), plus, as I said, I like the Duke. I shall find out!
I got me my Sonic Lost Worlds today, both the Wii U and 3DS version, because I can, and they’re both gonna be different to a certain extent I would imagine. I’m looking forward to playing them, should be fun times. I bit on the Deadly Six Edition for Wii U, because NiGHTS is awesome (If you haven’t played NiGHTS, I highly recommend the PSN/XBLA version. Or, if you’re old school, get the Saturn version.)
It’s just a matter if I can tear myself away from playing Pokemon Y long enough to play Sonic. Pokemon X and Y are so good. I’m working on an opinion piece for the future.
Anyway, yeah, looking forward to playing Sonic. I don’t care if it’s gonna suck, I’m just glad to have it.
Also, Level 100 baby! My main quest party is MAX. Since I didn’t train them for EVs, they kind of suck, but still, 100! They were good enough to beat the Battle Chatelaines of the Battle Mansion in Single, Double, Triple, Rotation, and Multi at least. I have the Super ladder unlocked for all, but I don’t know if my ragtag party will do well, I need an EV trained team.
Also, clipped over 100 hours as well. Hooray.
National Dex: 421 Seen/224 Obtained
I also got all the Mega Stones. There is a cool video on the GameXplain YouTube channel that shows you where they are all located. Useful!
I finally got around to beating the Pokemon League, between all my sauntering around and such. I’ll still remain hush hush on what happens exactly, but I wasn’t expecting what happens during the epilogue.

Time to explore the post game I suppose, then I’ll form my final thoughts. I guess I’m open to battles too with my party Pokemon, either an Open Level battle (I’m close enough to 100) or a Lv 50 Flat Battle, any battle style. Get a hold of me on Twitter (@ThatZooooooooo) if you want to battle, I’m probably gonna lose, since I didn’t EV train my party, but I’m always ready for battles.
I bought a fancy suit from the fancy store in Lumiose City. This get up cost me 600,000 Pokedollars, but because I know how to cheese the system (Battle Chateau + Gold Writ of Invitation + Amulet Coin + Prize Money Up O-Power = Lots of money), I had plenty of money, enough left over to get 999 Ultra Balls, Full Restores, and Revives. I think I’m ready for anything.
As for my progress at this point, I just beat the 7th Gym and going for the Bad Guy’s hideout, I decided to make a pit stop first, I’m going to be more stylish than Team Flare! My pokemon were 25-30 Lvs above the 7th Gym Leader (my Party Pokemon are currently Lv 73), I think I can steamroll Team Flare, probably. If I don’t dwaddle around too much, I should beat the Champion either tonight or tomorrow before D&D hopefully. I have good stories about D&D, but unrelated.
The strategy guide came today, now I’ll know what I need to know, like where and how to get Mega Stones (hopefully), which Pokemon are where, and how the heck to evolve certain Pokemon, like Helioptile.
I ordered mine and put an express on it hope I get it next couple days I need it
It doesn’t have a Pokedex in it that I saw, which is pretty bogus, but it still has which pokemon are where and what pokemon leaders have and such. I mostly wanted it so I could have it, but I’ll still get some use out of it.
So, yeah, new Pokemon game. I am excite.
I basically played it all day Saturday, and a bit today. D&D got in the way, but it was still fun.
I settled on playing Y as my main file to hold everything, I’ll make X my secondary to start over and such.
I’m not going into too much details as to avoid crazy Spoilerphobes, but I’ll give my current status at the very least.
Progress: I just got the 3rd Gym Badge

Greninja is so cool, it’s a ninja frog, I’m never going to get rid of it.
Also, I go very slow. As I say, I’m the Captain Slow of Gaming. I’m very methodical and precise when I play games, especially RPGs.
Also, yeah. I’m a bit over-leveled methinks. The 3rd Gym Leader’s Pokemon is Lv 32 highest, my lowest is Lv 43. I guess that sort of contributed to my slow progress, along with trying to catch everything I can before moving on.
Impressions are mostly positive, but I reserve full judgment until I at least beat the main story.
Again, no deeper details as to avoid crazy Spoilerphobes. If you want more frequent, non-spoiler updates, peep my Twitter, I’m @ThatZooooooooo.
Got both Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, I still don’t know which one I’ll make my main version and which one will be my secondary version. I’m still holding out for Pokemon Z (if they make that), Z is the best letter of the alphabet after all!
I won’t be taking any in game screenshots, as to avoid those crazy spoilerphobes. Plus, I hate when LPers LP games IMMEDIATELY when they’re released (I could probably name quite a few), it’s just a personal pet peeve of mine.
My pre-order also came with a poster timeline of the main Pokemon games, which was neat. I ordered the Strategy Guide with One-Day Shipping, should be here on Monday. I use it for Maps and to know what pokemon are where, I can handle the battles and strategies myself!
Anyway, don’t bother me today or Sunday, or I’ll kill you. Not really, that would be stupid.
