As some of you may know, Nintendo is distributing codes for the demo for the upcoming remakes of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, called Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which are coming out almost exactly one month from today.
In the US, you can get these codes by signing up for their Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter. When you get the newsletter in your email, you take the code and put it in the Nintendo eShop to download the demo onto your Nintendo 3DS system.
Since I thought Ruby and Sapphire were fabulous games and I have been eagerly looking forward to the remakes ever since they were officially announced, I signed up for the newsletter and last night received the demo code in my inbox and proceeded to download the game onto my 3DS.
Here are some of my quick thoughts on the demo:
-Brendan is for some reason called Orlando. I liked Brendan better, as Orlando makes me think of Orlando Bloom. I'm probably just used to Brendan's old name, though it doesn't matte either way because when I get the full game I am going to use my own name, as I usually do with Pokémon games
-I would have liked to have received Mega Steelix rather than Mega Glalie, mostly because I like Steelix better than Glalie
-Loved Matt and Tabitha's interactions. Matt is especially funny, mostly because he seems like he's there to have a good time
-Mega Swampert and Mega Sceptile as pretty cool from what I've done with them. Won't say anything about Mega Blaziken, as Mega Blaziken has been around for a while and I'm pretty sure everyone already knows about it
-I like the 3D Mossdeep City. It looks like Mossdeep, but in 3D. If this is an example of what the other towns and cities are gonna look like in 3D, then I can safely say that they are going to look great
That's all for now. There's still some more things to do, I think, so I might update this post later with more thoughts if I remember or feel like it.
