March 6th, 2011

As you can see I'm totally jazzed because today, March 6th, is the release date for the newest games in the Pokemon series, Black and White.  I actually pre-ordered mine at EB Games, so I would get a special Celebi that I could use in the game.  This is actually the first time I've pre-ordered anything and I even left work a hour early so I could go pick it up.  Interesting side note is that EB Games sucks and I will not be buying games there anymore.

At first I was gonna get Pokemon Black because it just sounds more bad ass, but White's legendary Pokemon Zekrom, dude on the cover, looks cooler.  I've already played a hour of it and one of the big differences from past games is the camera.  It's more dynamic and moves around which I like.  I haven't had enough time playing it see what new game features and mechanics they've added.  But out of the three starter Pokemon I went with Tepig, the fire type, and yeah he looks like a pig.

With last year's game, HeartGold, I tried connecting it online through the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, but couldn't get it to work, my DS didn't like my router.  I tried changing the WPA settings and I even bought a Nintendo USB Wi-Fi stick and I still couldn't get it to work.  I gave it a quick try tonight and I still couldn't get it online with our router, but one of our neighbors doesn't have a password on their router, so I was able to get online through there.  Haha, thanks! 

Hopefully, I'll get around to finishing Pokemon White as I never did finish Pokemon HeartGold.  I was so close with only Red left to fight, but his Pokemon were at such high levels and I was too burned out to level grind my team up. 

Is it weird for me to be playing Pokemon?  Maybe, but I also like to shoot and blow stuff up in Bad Company 2, so maybe they cancel out.  What can I say, I'm versatile.  I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this, but if you are then I know you want to see this picture again.
