I'm in for trades, I've got all the trade only evolution Pokemon sitting around too. If you happen to have the Eevee version we could trade the version exclusive Pokemon as well. I'll be free all evening Sunday if you want to set up a time.

Having a blast with it so far and I honestly much prefer the new catch system to the old random battles. I hated in the old games having to swap around weak Pokemon so I didn't one-shot the wild Pokemon I was trying to catch and then you'd have an attack crit and screw you over anyway. I'm indifferent to the catch combo system, at least it gives you a way to tilt the odds in your favor as opposed to wandering threw tall grass just hoping the Pokemon you want attacks. The catch combo doesn't reset on screen changes so you could always go back to the start to catch a bunch of Rattata and build a high combo if you're having issues of Pokemon fleeing.

@shades846: It's quite good if you're a casual Pokemon fan or just want to play a remake of Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow. I just finished the 2nd gym today and have been having a lot of fun with it. Only major difference from the originals is this doesn't feature random battles in grass anymore. Now you see the Pokemon walking around and walk into them to engage in a catching mini game that works similar to Pokemon Go. There are still battles of course but they're only against other trainers within the world or against the Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo.

If you're way into the hardcore aspects of modern Pokemon with breeding and perfect IV stats and things like that this probably isn't for you. This is very much a nostalgia piece for fans of the first couple games and a good entry for folks who have never played a Pokemon game before as it's so simplified compared to the last couple games.

Are there any developers with semi celeb status that arent hated? Seems like people are going out of their way online to make cliffy look horrible for simply making a tweet about his business failing. Jumping to conclusions about the mans character and how he treats employees? Maybe john Cormack is the only one without a giant hate base at least last i remembered.

  • Hideo Kojima
  • Sid Meier
  • Will Wright
  • Tim Schafer
  • Ed Boon
  • Shigeru Miyamoto

I wouldn't consider any of these fellows hated and most seem quite nice.

They announced a bunch of ports but no Tokyo Mirage Sessions, I am sad.

Bummer this is still broken. On the plus side I've spent a lot more time actually playing games since I can't watch GB. Good luck to the guys and gals working on it, hopefully it's fixed soon.

I'd go with Jeff, he tends to look at games with a more measured eye and doesn't really get swept up in hype. I like that he is very careful with heaping praise on a game until he's really had a chance to dig in and pick apart the mechanics of what works and what doesn't.

TV deals are one of the main things pushing me away from watching the NFL anymore. It seems crazy on Saturdays you have 10+ networks running NCAA football from Noon to Midnight allowing you to watch any game you want but the NFL screws over fans with all the blackouts and manipulating what market can watch which teams at any given time.
