Kingdom Hearts 2.5 came in. It also had a little limited edition pin that I thought was a keychain. A keychain made sense (KEYS!) a pin does not. What am I going to use a pin for?  >:(

Anyway the game looks pretty good, though the textures themselves don't look right stretched out to 1080p, it seems like they mostly concentrated on ensuring characters don't look like garbage at the high resolution. They also remastered all of the soundtracks. Some are better, some are considerably worse.

My friend pre-ordered the game and was expecting a keychain as well. I think Square Enix just bait and switched you.

In other news, I got Pokemon Omega Ruby yesterday and have sunk about 5 hours into it. It adds a lot of nice features that improve the overall formula. DexNav, for one, which lets you search for specific Pokemon in grass and get them over and over again.

I really haven't spent that much time with the game yet, but so far it's pretty solid. Although, it's still way too easy. I was hoping that they would at least add a difficulty option like Black/White2, but nope. It also does not allow you to customize your trainer's appearance, which I feel is a big step backwards since I loved that aspect of X/Y. The overworld has way too many load screens between zones, which is a huge stepback from Emerald (which was a GBA gen game). In Emerald the entire overworld was seamless, which made it feel a lot larger than it actually was and added to the sense of exploration. So far, Emerald is still winning in the game-design category and still might be the best Pokemon game in my opinion.

I'm surprised this is even being called a remake. ORAS actually feels like a Pokemon game loosely based on Ruby/Sapphire, as zones look completely different, not just because everything is updated in 3D, but because the layouts of most areas have changed. I don't get that "oooh! that looks just like Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald" nostalgia vibe at all, which is disappointing... but it's still a solid Pokemon game for what it tries to do.

Up to 1,000, but some will be duplicates.

I can't play WoW because reasons, but sometimes I want to start up again. Guilty pleasure I guess.

GameFreak really needs to give gym leaders more than 2 trash Pokemon. It's not challenging and it's not fun. It feels like an extended tutorial that is impossible to lose.

Pokemon isn't a hardcore, difficult game for people with actual skill? I am shocked.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

Isn't Pokemon for children? It seems like an adult would always find a Pokemon game rather easy.
