Okay, as long as we're at it; serious question for you guys; are any of you playing the new Pokemon? Do any of you like it? The last one I played was Red, back when I was like 11 or 12, if even that. I had some fun with it, but haven't played any of them since.
A friend of mine is a huge pokemon fanatic, and I've heard him talking about it to (or at) me and other friends, and some of the stuff just sounds painful, like how if you want to get one with decent stats, you have to keep catching them until you find one with the right personality, or grind them off certain enemies for some sort of values I don't clearly remember. All of that garbage makes me weary about even giving the game a chance; none of it actually sounds fun. It actually sounds like a chore. I want a game that i can just play, and say fuck all to any metagaming.
A lot of my friends at the store I host my board game nights at are getting into the game, and keep bothering me to do the same, but I'm really not sure about it. Is it any good, or more of the same of what it was like 16 years ago? Do I need to do all that horrible sounding grinding to get anything out of it?
Stars for the video as well.
games are mostly what you make them.
if you play them like a kid, you'll have fun.
if you play them like "that guy" to beat every little kid, you'll be that miserable guy.

Even though I was a kid when Red and Blue came out, my first game was Emerald and I would love to play X and Y.
I think I will wait until in the grand tradition of Pokemon they make a third one that combines the former two which will more than likely be called Z.
X and Y is slightly disappointing from what I have heard due to the amount of new Pokemon limited to the game (70 not counting Mega Evolutions, making this the only game in the series with the least available amount of new Pokemon.) However, they think that much more new Pokemon will be available as DLC in the future.
Pokemon Amie is supposed to be a great addition to the game, and shinies are supposed to be a bit easier to find due to Pokemon groups that you encounter.
Pretty much all Pokemon games stick to the same formula, so if you enjoyed it as a kid you will enjoy it now.
ev training can be done through a minigame and changes to breeding make it much easier than before to get max stats and beneficial natures, but you can also just ignore all that and play it normal without really noticing the difference. there's even a way to reset your evs if you started out not caring and changed your mind later.
the days of using calculators and spreadsheets to get that extra stat point are over forever i hope, though you can still do it that way if you like that sort of thing.

Sounds like your friends are competitive freaks. I suggest finding someone who's into breeding pokemon because you might have to get some decent poke's that hold up in battle.
You should see them at board game night. I've seen rounds of simple mafia games take over 20 minutes because some of them won't just shut up and vote.
Most of you probably already have seen or read this, but I just came across it and thought I'd share.

I love how she added the price of the 3DS she broke that her daughter got as a gift to her lawsuit.
