Pokemon Videogame Championship Series



Anyone else doing this? This will be our third year. My two boys (with some guidance from Dad) have been training their Pokemon for months now.

Well, I got thru the first section of Lego PotC (only 16% completed ), it still is pretty buggy, events that are supposed to happen to allow you to progress don't always happen unless you reboot, but all the humor from the previous Lego games is there, and they do a spot on job with the characterization of Capt. Jack. I'll probably end up buying it when it gets to $20. (on a side note, between this game, the actual Lego sets, and the Cars lego sets, I really want theme park sets.)

I also rented L.A. Noire and popped that in last night. Wow. I haven't got very far into it, but it's a blast! Basically take one of those CSI games and cross it with Grand Theft Auto 4, and you have LA Noire. It's a gorgeous game, wonderfully voice acted, some of the best lip syncing and facial expressions I've ever seen in a video game. Can't wait to play more. (It should be stated, as it is a Rockstar game, it may not be appropriate for kids. So far I've come across a few swears and racial slurs.)

This reminds me... back in the day (late-1990's) I would enter the Madden National Tournament (PC version) each year. Following the 1998 tournament, the developers of the 1999 PC version of the game included a team with all of us from the tournament. So I am on a team included in the game! (PC version only.) It was back before I changed my name - so I am in there as John Fryske (see why I changed my name?). I believe I am a middle linebacker in the game - it's been a long time since I played it. But I kept that 1999 Madden PC game as a little personal 'trophy'.

Theme Park sets would be a cool idea. I have been trying to work out the logistics of a business involving Legos... but I don't want to divulge too much and have someone (not a DISdad, of course, but a random person using Google) steal my idea.

It sounds like Red Dead Redemption, but instead of being set in the Old West - it is set in the 1940's. Which makes sense because it is the same developer. Also seems similar to Mafia and Mafia II. I can't wait to play it, but I want to finish Red Dead Redemption first.

I would very much like a Cinderella's Castle or Haunted Mansion to sit next to our Hogwarts Castle and the Krusty Krab....

Yes, quite a bit like RDR, but the investigation is what really sets it apart. Searching for clues, interrogating witnesses/suspects, I really dig games like that.

A big "to do" list this weekend, so I'm hoping for rain. Rain = cracking open the Epic Mickey.

Anybody play Heroclix either yourself or with the kids? I haven't played since Topps dropped them, but I've signed myself for a tourney next weekend. 300 points anything goes. I have no clue on what kind of team to put together. I think I'm gonna have my tuckus handed to me.

No I do not have the hat. I have been looking for a fedora so I might as well go with that one right? I wonder if they still sell them at the Studios?

So, did anyone else catch the “Family Guy” special send up of Star Wars VI (they titled this one: “It’s a Trap”). I’m a major Star Wars fan (they were some of the best “western” ever made) but I also like a good parody and this one didn’t disappoint.
