    Hey guys, I also was reminded of the old “toy” feel of 2DS. I doubt it will be much of a collector’s item. I think kids will buy it in mass for Pokemon. Plus it can be dropped to $100 in a year or two and help 3DS sell like hotcakes. Personally I miss my game system’s looking like toys. This “iPhone” look we’ve had since the mid 00s is getting played out.

    I had no idea about gamefreak being a Fanzine originally! Or the harrowing development of the first game.

    I really enjoyed the play by play of the game with music. Most retro shows don’t really put that level into it. You should do it for every episode?

    For me Pokemon started with watching the TV show. I got the game with my xmas money and borrowed my friends GB pocket to play it. It was amazing. I don’t think I ever beat the final for though. But we were obsessed with the cards, the tv show, and the movie. It was a lot of fun. I fell out of the series after Ruby but got back in for B&W since it had an actual story. I’m excited for X&Y because its in polygonal 3D for the first time. Plus gen 1 starters have me excited.
