Weekend Gaming 3/4-3/6

pokewhite.jpgThis weekend is full of decisions. Not only does Pokémon Black and White come out on Sunday, but Dragon Age 2 comes out this Tuesday. Yes, I may have already played Pokémon Black in Japanese, but I always buy the opposite version in English and it always feels like a brand new game when I play it in a different language. I think importing games is good as long as you have a good reason for it. And mine just happens to be tradition. Sometimes a game will never be localized and released in the US (Ahem, Mother 3,) so the only thing you can do is import it. Pokemon White will be great for my commute, but I know that I'll be playing it at home too.

The other game I will be playing is Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter IV, but I'm always playing these games even when I'm pressed for time. Fighting games are like teeth-brushing for me. At least twice a day! Pokémon will drain my time away from my DS, so I may be putting Radiant Historia down for a while. So much for beating that game in a weekend.

Are you getting ready for Dragon Age 2? Beating the original to import your save file? Or will you be sucked into Unova choosing a starter?

I'm halfway through my second playthrough of Awakening, and then have two more bits of DLC to finish. Similar to how I had a save file for each class in the old Quest for Glory series, I imagine I'll be creating a different world with different decisions for each of my playthroughs of DA2.

Should probably also get back to continuing in Deus Ex (looking forward to Human Revolution--whenever that releases).

I was excited about Pokemon Blk/Wht! But while playing Pokemon SoulSilver the other night my DS took it's final breath :( So had to cancel my Pokemon Black Pre-Order and I'll wait for a new DS. Maybe I'll kill 2 birds at 1 time and get the Pokemon White / Nintendo DSi pack :D We'll see.

So Dragon Age 2 will be getting my love next week

Though im not an avid reader of gaygamer.net i do catch articles from time to time through my gamingbuzz android app and have to say i enjoy your posts.

I always notice you mentioning taking the subways in nyc and almost being ashamed of playing things like pokemon while traveling and can say i feel the same way sometimes. I also remember you mentioning the A train, i sometimes take that on my ride to and from work as well, maybe catch you in a pokemon battle one day. I am looking forward to hunting down a copy of the game early in the city.

I actually don't live in NY, but I have written about feeling embarassed playingPokemon. I think you have me confused with Wootini who also occasionally posts Pokemon news. We should have a Pokemon battle sometime anyway!

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
