Pokemon Sells a Lot. Noooooo, Really?

In the most unsurprising bit of news to come along in some time, Nintendo has announced that their flagship DS titles, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, have accumulated over 1 million units sold in little less than a week’s time. Seriously, was there ever a doubt that this wouldn’t happen? Pokemon is the crack for gaming: everyone knows it isn’t good for you, but it’s so hard to quit.

Aww jeez, we doin’ this Pokemon thing again?

Not to say the games suck (the original GameBoy one was uber-good), but I’m not sure how many times Nintendo/Game Freak have to make the exact same game over and over before fans finally realize that the series needs a revamp. Personally, I’m still holding out for the console MMO that everyone seems to wish for. And I’m sure some snot-nosed little punk will defeat my Squirtle in no time too.

So, did any vl reader venture out into the wilderness and pick themselves up a copy? I won’t laugh, I promise….

Ahahaha, dorks!

I don’t want to talk about it.

In this awesome pattern of things you get a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you lost everybody was first on your specifics. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be more correct here. Having said that, allow me tell you just what did deliver the results. The writing is actually pretty powerful and this is probably the reason why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can certainly notice the leaps in reason you make, I am definitely not confident of just how you seem to unite your ideas which inturn produce your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your issue but wish in the near future you connect your facts much better.
