A Rant on Mass-Released Exclusives

"Buy with all your might!!"

“Buy with all your might!!”

As a collector, much of the pride that I have for my collection stems from the time and effort that I take to amass each and every piece. The rarer the collectible, the more effort (and sometimes luck) necessary to obtain them and the more pride I have once it’s in my collection. (…and to be dreadfully honest, the bragging rights that come with owning a rare commodity don’t hurt either.)

This might be somewhat elitist, egotistical and entitled of me to say this, but I simply hate it when companies mass-release something that once was an exclusive.

Pokemon X and Y is Here!

October 12, 2013


Yup, it’s finally October 12th and I’ve just picked up a brand spanking new 3DS XL to go with my copy of Pokemon Y. It’s been ages since I purchased my DS Lite and I think it’s high time for an upgrade. This is also the very first hand-held console I own that has a special design on it.

So far, I’m just over an hour into the game and man, have there been a ton of changes and improvements since the good old GBA days of FireRed and Emerald (skipped over the DS titles). Customizable avatars? Full 3D battles? This is simply phenomenal. Bizarrely enough, the one thing that I can’t get enough of is the ability to sit on chairs and beds. If I had to nitpick, I really do wish there was a way to control the camera. Sometimes, the game locks you into a very awkward perspective that makes it hard to view certain areas.

Honestly, having played the original Red and Blue versions when I was in primary school, I never would have imagined that games could get this advanced within my lifetime.

Also, am I the only one who always chooses the female avatar when playing games?

…What? Stop looking at me like that! (^.^;)
