The Lounge / Re: Handheld care

I don't think anything's really happened to any of my handhelds, tbh, besides some scratches on the screens of the older ones. Oh, the battery cover of my GBA is broken, but I taped it on because I hate naked battery covers.

I try to take good care of my stuff ;__;

ahhh i used to be so obsessed with Invader Zim. takes me back to like, 2004, man. :')

ALSO i have read Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. not bad, needs a long wait before a reread, though.

Pokémon / Re: red vs ash who would win
« on: December 13, 2010, 06:22:52 AM »
that's exactly my point.

1) The english name of the game character is "Blue Oak"
2) The japanese name of game chatacter is "?????????" or "Green ?kido"

Therefore, he/she is is mixing the two names, and it is confusing me.

yeah, i hate how with Adventures all of a sudden everyone insists on using Japanese names. well i mean, using Japanese names is fine and dandy, but everyone always mixes the names! if you're going to use Japanese names, go all the way plz. "Green Ookido used his Lizardon", fine, "Green Oak used his Charizard", wtf? /pet peeve

Pokémon / Re: Mystery Dungeon series

Not my favourite, to be honest. gets kinda boring for me after a while. (though, I only own Blue Rescue Team)

Pokémon / Re: Pokémon Special

I used to, I have the first 6 books of the Viz translation. However I hated Viz when they decided to release Vol. 30 as a whole new and different serie, ruins my collection. I dropped it there. Pretty good actually, to bad that Viz makes the worst decisions with their licences. >:(
how is that so bad? the older volumes will catch up eventually. its not like the numbers on the spines matter.

Is there anyone here who reads the Manga adaption of the Pokémon franchise?
also, late but: i kinda hate it when people call Adventures "the" manga adaptation. there's more than one and Adventures isn't any more official than the others, just more popular. (and got an endorsement from Tajiri TEN YEARS ago)

Nintendo Gaming / Re: First Nintendo Game?
« on: December 13, 2010, 06:17:06 AM »
First ever played was Super Mario 64. My uncle owned it (and later he would give us his N64 about a year later when he moved).

First I ever owned was Pokémon Red. Recieved it with my Game Boy Pocket.

The Lounge / Re: There's these kids that hate Nintendo at my school.
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:47:57 PM »
i got teased all the time in middle school (yes, all 3 grades) because i liked mario and zelda and not whatever crappy GTA clone or FPS was out for the PS2. :/ kids can be stupid and mean, but its not a big deal in the long run. seriously they probably think they're so badass, but they just look like douches to everyone else. try not to let it get to you (yeah right), you've got your own friends, and that's what counts :)

Pokémon / Re: Pokémon Ranger
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:44:00 PM »
i bought the first Ranger game just because i had just bought a DS and it was cheap XD but i love it!! i've since bought the two sequels since they came out, i can honestly say the Ranger games are my favourite spin-off series :D

Pokémon / Re: XD or Colosseum
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:43:16 PM »
Colosseum for me. Better lead character, better plot, and everything felt grittier (in a good way)

Pokémon / Re: Pokémon music!
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:42:12 PM »
Game Corner theme from DPPt is awesome haha

Actually though, I love listening to Pokémon music. I actually own the RGBY soundtrack on a CD ^^ the battle themes are always a favourite of mine, mostly just because they've been memorized i guess XD

I love Pokémon Adventures, as cliche as it is to say this, it really is one of my favourite Pokémon mangas. Everything I've read is just quality. (I'm following the VIZ releases - up to vol 9 right now)

Pokémon / Re: Pokémon manga other than Adventures/Special
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:39:58 PM »
Pokémon Diamond & Pearl Adventure! is excellent, i'm actually sad to see the series completed.

i also really like Magical Pokémon Journey, too bad it's so rare :/

manga i'd like to see translated by VIZ: Phantom Thief! Pokémon 7, Pocket Monsters, maybe that new B&W one that's supposed to appear in CoroCoro.

Pokémon / Re: Favorite Generation
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:37:45 PM »
Gen III. best memories, best region (Hoenn), i just love the music and the characters and i think it introduced the best new Pokémon. glad to see so much love for third gen here :D

lol at how old this thread is... i was actually thinking of RE-reading the whole Peach Girl series over again.

haven't read a lot of manga lately, though. borrowed "Chi's Sweet Home" from my bf but I haven't read it yet.

Other Media / Re: The comic strip/book thread
« on: November 14, 2010, 06:26:50 PM »
when i was little, i used to be hardcore into comic strips. i have like 100 comic strip books and i've read part of just about everything. i still check for the comics whenever someone in my family buys a newspaper :')

some of my favourites, past and present: Calvin and Hobbes, Life in Hell, Retail, Dilbert (The Dilbert Principle was like my favourite book when i was like, eight), Garfield (its not as funny now that Jon has a gf), For Better or For Worse

as for webcomics, all i really read consistently is CAD. i've read vgcats, super effective & awkward zombie, but i don't follow them super closely.
