I'm nearly finally done with A Game of Thrones (wow is this a long read... and after finishing it I hope to finally start the television show), so figured it time to pick up some books. Actually was pretty disappointed since the Star Wars Legends books I've been wanting for a while weren't in stock there, so I kind of just got what I didn't have... which even includes one I can't read yet (The Last Jedi) because I wasn't able to find those before it. >_<

Also picked up The End while at Barnes & Noble and just posted my review on it.

Smash 3DS is awesome. Yes, the WiiU one is going to blow it out of the water and this basically amounts to a limited port... but I can't take my WiiU literally anywhere.

YES! NECA's Booker is finally out! And I had to resort to Amazon because I just couldn't find it in my TRU at all... Which also tempted me into finally getting a DBZ SHF. Goku's pretty cool. And with SS4 Goku just revealed the other day at Tamashii Nations 2014, I don't think I'll be able to resist him either. Speaking of Tamashii, managed to nab a Bravo off of Mandarake finally. He is glorious and flamboyant and oh so very painful oh goodness why is he so sharp OW!! But uh... I still like him haha! My 2014 Godzilla also came and I couldn't be happier. Mine doesn't seem to suffer from any QC issues a lot of others seem to be complaining about. He's simply awesome. Finally, Mega Blaziken arrived and he's alright. Just alright. I still wish it was regular Blaziken, but the stand they did for him is pretty sick. I do hope we get more Pokémon in the future.

My WalMart finally put out new Transformers stock in a big way... Island devoted to just the Generations. Only picked up two but very tempted to get more.

And finally my newest Hidden Blade, as we all saw the other day. It feels weird having this and not taking my haul pic alongside Unity. It's... Well, kind of disappointing. The blade is the tiniest yet (both in girth and length). It's really just a sad little thing. And the crossbow gimmick (HA! This time the blade's supposed to launch across the room unlike the defective NECA ones! :P) is just bad. The tiiiiniest of bumps will unlock the tiny tab keeping the bolt in place (and only the bolt locks... not the sliding mechanism or big hunk of plastic it slides into). It's just not very well designed in that regard.

Hip Action Figures of the Day: Star Wars Figuarts Update

Star Wars, Figuarts

:D

I don't know what to do with my Black Series stuff now (time to decide I guess), but oh my goodness these look great. The Stormtroopers and Vader also resurfaced and will be out next year and can't wait for them. Supposedly also a Ben Kenobi and Maul, among maybe others, only display. But all in "no pictures" areas so... will have to wait and see if anything else comes out.

Pokemon Omega Ruby: Demo Day

Pokemon, Remakes, Omega Ruby
This demo was... interesting. It's definitely not what I excepted at the very least.

It was not just playing part of the game, like what usually happens in a demo. This was its own miniaturized look at the game as a bit of a side story we won't see in the game proper. It was a unique idea and not too bad, but it was really just too short to be that interesting. You can replay however many times you want - but really only doing it 10 is worthwhile to get all of the rewards that carry over to the main game (which is also a really cool thing). But the only part that actually mattered as the first visit and that just seemed awfully rushed and didn't interest me. If you had never played the original Ruby or Sapphire, I could totally understand being really confused by what was going on.

Steven bragging about his shiny Metagross and how he just so wishes he could give it to you was pretty funny though.

Ultimately this was for the special Pokémon and its Mega Stone, though. And Mega Glalie is awesome! (Though I do sincerely hope Steelix is still obtainable outside of Japan somewhere within the game itself... if not, that's pretty ridiculous.) So I do look forward to having him in my game heh.

I wasn't really looking forward to the demo, so maybe that's why I didn't care for it. We still don't even know if the stones for the special megas in them won't be obtainable normally, which would completely defeat the point of transferring from the demo. And I assume they will be, so I never saw the point of a demo. It's Pokémon, we know what the game is like. :P

I'm still looking forward to Omega Ruby, don't get me wrong. I played wayyyyy too much Y... I have fully trained almost too many Pokémon and even have plans never fulfilled. And I wore myself out... Doing an actual adventure again sounds great to me.

I still can't decide on which starter to choose, however... A big part of me doesn't want to do Blaziken again, especially when its Mega Evolution is one I've already used a fair bit, but I have always picked the Fire starter... Playing with all three in the demo didn't help any though since they all look cool lol.

Pokemon Y: Day 11

Pokemon
Kalos has a new Champion!

The ending of this game was... interesting.

Literally the only challenging part of the Elite Four was Siebold's Gyarados. During my first battle against him, it managed to get off five Dragon Dances... Stupid Full Restores... I literally couldn't do anything against it because of those and the healing. That's what ya get for not having an Electric type or even any Electric moves on your team, though. Got him easily enough the second time through relying on the fact that he predictably Dragon Danced, allowing me to whittle him down with Gogoat until one Full Restore was wasted, then got lucky with Mega Blastoise's Dark Pulses doing enough damage for the second heal to not trigger.

Diantha was a pushover but oh my god finally somebody with six Pokémon on their team! (Except six Magikarp guy, of course.)

It was the battle after that that caught me off guard. I did not expect to fight AZ. And reuniting with his Floette was pretty touching. But most of all, I love how you were recognized as Champion and the person who beat Team Flare. No more of the silly NPCs saying post-game "I heard somebody beat Team ____, I wonder who it was..." That's right, it was me, and I get to be proud of that.


Final team:

Kurama, Delphox Lv. 69
Sanbi, Blastoise Lv. 68
Philoctetes, Gogoat Lv. 67
Soul Eater, Aegislash Lv. 68
Gabutyra, Tyrantrum Lv. 67
Oberon, Sylveon Lv. 70

Everyone else who helped along the way:

Pikachu
Simba, Litleo
Skyhopper, Diggersby
Pandaman, Pancham
Uva, Vivillon
Ankh, Talonflame
Yveltal

And I'm not done yet with these! I've still got some post-game content to get through and that'll probably involved getting Friend Codes from everybody, so stay tuned for that.
