Okay, I have not posted anything on here in quite some time so here I go spouting random things that are a part of my life lately!
Today, we learned that Secret Bases ARE CONFIRMED for ORAS. Another reason why these games are going to be completely rad. I mean, all of the Pokedolls sittin' around the base in 3D? IT'LL BE LIKE AN INGAME COLLECTION, YES PLEASE. I also cannot help but wonder what this means for potential merch, which makes me wonder what will be on pokemoncenter(.)com. I am so stoked for everything regarding these remakes. Sapphire was my favorite game until X, so I'm pretty sure AS will quickly become my favorite...I mean everything that Hoenn holds with the XY graphics/newest Pokemon. *unintelligible screaming*
I have actually been replaying Ruby on my GBASP, which is pretty much my favorite Nintendo device? I mean, the 3DS XL obviously is my *realistic favorite* because of graphics/awesome screen but my love for the SP surpasses nostalgia; it just fits my hand so well, it closes/opens very easily, the backlight is easily turned on and off, I love the placement of the buttons, and it just fits places - like as if it really is meant to be portable. Hmm, who would have thought! ANYWAYENOUGHOFTHAT11YEARLATEREVIEW I have never restarted my Sapphire version but this is at least the 4th time I have replayed Ruby (explaining why I have 4 Groudons chillin' in PokeBank. This time (and at this moment) I have Bayer the Combusken, Naomi the Kirlia, Windy the Pelipper, MAKIT the Hariyama, Bitts the Minun (which btw I found a Plusle before the Minun even though there's a smaller chance of finding the Plusle, alas), and a Zigzagoon named Ziighy who has the lovely ability pickup and knows useful HMs (this is something I typically do until I fill up my party!). I'm thinking the last slot will go to a Pokemon like Wailmer or Carvanha, someone who knows dive. We will see! Anyway, I really do enjoy the layout of this region/the overall diversity of the map, so I cannot wait to see how it will all look in 3D. :)
Another area of my life that I am excited about is moving to a different part of my state for graduate school! It'll be a big change for me, but I am very excited about where it will take me. College is college and, nowadays, only somewhat optional, while grad school is something that I am 100% choosing to enter. Looking forward to meeting others with similar ideologies, passions, and goals. Of course, with all of the positive vibes regarding this change, the only problem is that I will not be able to take my Pokemon collection with me. I am very fortunate to have my parents' home as a "storage place" (AKA the place where most of my stuff stays because I keep moving into completely furnished, small living areas) because all of my collections have been displayed here without much disturbance throughout my time away for undergrad. I am thinking I will be taking my Bulbasaur line collection and Dedenne collection because I think these are the two I will be working the most toward in the upcoming months (gosh, well years, even??).
Dragon Age: Inquisition is something very exciting for me! One of my friends got me into the series a couple (okay, I think almost three now), and it's one of the best ones I have played. I completely fell in love with Alistair (Which, admittedly, is a reason why I have such a fondness for DA:O). But this time around, I will be playing as a male because I am 100% romancing Cassandra (who is a straight LI) because I want to swoon over her. (Not that I even need to state this, but I am straight blah blah blah so the real attraction here is THAT SHE IS COMPLETELY AWESOME/FIERCE/AMAZING/STRONG SO THERE IS NO REASON WHY PEOPLE OF ANY GENDER OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION SHOULD HAVE A PROBLEM SWOONING IN AT LEAST RESPECT). Plus, from the things released about her so far, her character seems to be *layered* (lol okay all of the characters in this series have this to an extent) meaning that the romance may actually feel very honest to reality in that as you get closer to someone, all of their sides, even their deepest ones, seem to show through and reveal themselves. So in all, I am pretty excited about this game as well!
Well, I wish I had a picture to post or something, but I think I'll just end this here. Until next time!
