Dude. Except for a couple of Final Fantasies this summer (only one of them “new”), there are absolutely no good games coming out for the DS and Wii any time soon. PSP and PS3 are lacking too. What do I do for the rest of the year? ;_; There’s only so much Mario Kart I can play…
So, I guess it’s retro-gaming time. I’ve been playing stuff like Metroid 2: Return of Samus and Metal Gear: Ghost Babel for the GB/GBC. Metroid is pretty confusing without a map — by the next time I load up my save, I already forgot where the hell I was. But I suppose it’s still better than the original Metroid, where you don’t even get saves. And Metal Gear is surprisingly modern for a Gameboy game… it’s like an updated version of the original MSX / NES games.
Anyway, what are you guys playing this summer?
While I’m not a huge Pokemon fan, I have to admit I did crusade around Kanto to collect all 150 Pokemon back in the RBGY generation. And yeah, I did pick it back up in college, when the DP generation came out. Trading Pokemon over Wi-Fi during Solid-State Devices… ah, a good day’s work.
I am however a huge fan of the online comic, VGCats — as all my friends will attest to, having being texted, IMed, or facebooked every week when a new strip is released. So, the author has recently created a Pokemon-only subcomic called Super Effective. Pure hilarity. :] It follows the story of the first game, so if you’re an old foagie like me, you’ll really appreciate the jokes. Or even if you haven’t played RBGY (who hasn’t!?), the jokes are still super effective. (har-har ._.)
And it seems like Pokemon jokes have been multiplying in this dude’s head for a while now, as many comics on his normal strip are also Pokemon-related.
