I received a Bulbasaur and a Squirtle, which were nice surprises. I put them back into wonder trade for someone else, though. My best trade was a Vivillon for a Gengar. I have yet to get some crazy level 50 pokemon.

Once I have a good variety of strong pokemon, I want to put them in and see what I get. Hopefully kids will get over flooding it with Bunnelby.

My teeth are almost grinded down completely sitting alone, waiting anxiously for the King Dedede announcement.

King DeDeDe will be in the game. Do not doubt.

Sonic is cool. I'm glad he's returning. It looks like his moveset will remain mostly the same, which is a big bummer, but I can't wait to pit he, Mario, and Sonic together. That's like, my childhood fantasy. As a matter of fact, my other favorite video game characters from my younger days were Crash and Snake, so if Snake returns... oh boy. I highly doubt we'll see Snake, unfortunately. And Crash is impossible, but my love of him faded long ago (my love for Mega Man WILL NEVER FADE).

Anyways, Mega Man looks fantastic and that is all I have ever really wanted in life.

I'm jumping in to the middle of a conversation here, but I couldn't finish Fire Emblem: Awakening because the characters are so awful. Therefore, I wouldn't say that I'm a fan of Intelligent Systems writing. Alpha Dream, on the other hand, are among the best in the industry.

Really? What did you find awful about them? I thought that characters in Awakening were great. Not my favorite cast of characters, but I have my favorites, and I love the call-backs to the older games.

Nostalgia isn't a factor for me, as this is only the third FE game I've played. I wouldn't have recognized throwbacks, so take that in to account.

My big problem was how typical the characters are. Chrom is incredibly boring. He's so trusting and loyal and brave and... blech. He was basically Sigurd all over again (FE 4 is one of the games I've played). As far as I saw, he didn't have any depth. The same can be said about the avatar. He's just mysterious and awesomely boring.

Everyone else is exploited for one or two attributes. Sumia was a klutzy cook. Frederick was loyal to the crown. Vaike is a bro. Lon'qu is afraid of girls. Miriel uses big words. None of it was subtle, and it became irritating with time.

GUYS MEGA MAN.

At first, when I heard about Fit Girl, I was disgusted. But it IS pretty hilarious. I love how Sakurai basically says in that one video that no one wanted this character in the game. Sakurai is the world's #1 troll.

First, I think many of us saw this coming. I wasn't certain (none of us were) but I had a feeling.

My initial reaction? Anger. This is an action game. I WANT A JRPG. Final Fantasy games are JRPGs. This looks like it fits somewhere between Kingdom Hearts and Devil May Cry.

But, then I opened my heart. The artwork really helps. I can't put my finger on it, but it just looks more like Final Fantasy than XIII. It takes me back to Nomura's best days, designing VII, VIII, and X. In particular, this game reminds me of VIII, which is probably my favorite game in the series. When it looks the part, how can I complain.

I can't wait to play this. Nothing will stop me from finishing it, the same way that boredom couldn't stop me from finishing XIII.

What evil spell have you cast on me Square?

Anyways, how are you all feeling?

I wouldn't say that Mirror's Edge was in my top 10 for this generation, but it was fun and interesting enough that I have always planned on buying the sequel. I'm glad it's happening.

What the fuck. What motivates this sort of action? When I saw the video, I almost cried. These events are incomprehensible. To make it all worse, 42 people were killed in bombings in Iraq today (in an unrelated tragedy). Why are innocent people targeted?

The Boston Marathon has always been a goal of mine, and it still is. I've been five minutes off of qualification for the past 5 years and 10 marathons I've run. had I qualified, I doubt I would have been there today, but it really helps me understand what the setting is, how it must feel. It's awful. The Boston Marathon doesn't represent anything but the physical achievements of people. Everyone, first or last, is a winner. The run is an event of togetherness. Did you see the flags of all the nations at the finish line? It doesn't matter where you're from when you run, you've done it. And somebody had to spoil that today. What a tragedy.

I am a student at the University of Utah. I have three majors, Political Science, International Studies, and Spanish. I graduate in a year. I have no idea what I will do after that.
