Man, this is exciting news. I don't even have to follow anyone new on twitter or ANYTHING. Welcome, Mr. Klepek!

Man, I'd really love it if they put out another MK concept album like they did around the time of the movie and all the music was of this quality.
For reference, this is the hilarious nonsense they're competing with:
I've been humming team plasma music all day, so .... yes, I agree. I also really like the dynamic music. Route themes are mellow when you're standing still, and a nice jaunty drum kicks in when you start moving. It's a really nice touch, reminds me of Monkey Island 2's dynamic music stuff.
Anyway, yes. Totally loving this game. Then again, I'm not really looking for something new with Pokemon. Refinements and some new guys every two or three years and I'll happily buy that.
If nothing else this generation of portable systems has kept good JRPGs flowing (and in surprisingly high numbers). For that, I'm glad. Modest presentation layer, engrossing gameplay, deep experiences writ small to keep them in a realistic budget. If i had to pick a single platform this generation, I'd pick the DS in a heartbeat. It has more games that I want to play than just about any console outside of the SNES.
But ... as always, mileage may vary. I'm not planning on getting either portable at launch, but I'll pick up both again because the kinds of games I like to play will continue to be too expensive to produce on consoles and will continue to find their home in a more niche market.
