So I’ve been thinking of ways to try and create some consistency with my updates on here. Since I am reviewing old RPGs, and do need or want to replay them before I review them, that can take time. For now, reviews will happen without a schedule. I’ll do my best to get some out very soon though.
What I am looking to do, is have at least one “The Five” list out every Friday. I already have several ready for release, with one or two more stewing in my mind. With that, I am always looking for suggestions for new list ideas. If you have some ideas that I haven’t done yet, feel free to comment on here, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll do my best to respond as quickly as I can.
Hope to see everyone on Friday for my next list!
Happy Pokemon day! Okay, so I’m one day early. In honor of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, I have compiled a special “The Five” list. I wanted to do something different other than favorite or cutest Pokemon. Instead, I have come up with this. The five choices every new Pokemon trainer had to make. This relates to people who started out by playing Pokemon Red or Blue/Green. The Yellow version is not factored into this list, simply because it was not available with the initial games launch.
This is my tribute to Pokemon, so I hope you like it!
