I hated Emerald as I found it overhyped and fairly boring but ORAS seems to have really lived up to the hype people gave Emerald. It depends what you're after, you can catch tons of legends and there is plenty to do in ORAS but if you do wait for the next Kalos game you'll probably get all the new megas ORAS has added but y'know, ORAS.
Lack of character customization and crap contests (I did most without looking at the screen) have made it lose points in my opinion but it's still good.
If you have played R/S/E, I don't think you shouldn't. Remakes are pretty much the same games with better graphics, and the added features you can find in X/Y, which you already have. The only reason I see for you to buy OR/AS is if it has a new Mega-Evolution that you like, and even then, if Game Freak keeps the same pace of developing one game per year, you can wait until Gen 7 which will certainly include them (and new ones).
Far better than X/Y, I'd highly recommend you get OR.
I'd say the games themselves are better than XY outside of the fresh feeling that a new region with new Pokemon has. There's more stuff to do before and after the league, which is something I appreciate. XY was kinda flat after beating the league.
If you've played R/S on the GBA already then it depends how much you want to relive that. If you haven't played it, then it's worth a shot, but maybe get more opinions before you decide. They aren't the worst Pokemon games (nor are they the best) but you are right in that they are the usual formula just reskinned which means you can know what to expect.
There is an actual post-game quest.
Nuff said =p
Oh you lucky duck! I went through over 200 Charmanders while doing the method without it working once. Congrats I suppose.
Malfoy kills Dumbledore.
Yeah, I expected Ryan to do quite well. I loved Jedward's entries. It wasn't the same without them this year. UK always does badly so I wasn't surprised. I'm not very happy with the winning song, did think it was very good myself. I wanted Greece or Malta to take it.
Does this mean I get control of your blog in the meantime?

UPDATE: So I watched the countdown fall to pieces, and the webpage was hidden by an obviously fake 503 error. But I'm still here, typing this.
It is now 11:12. So I think I can finally say...
LOL THE WORLD DIDN'T END LOL
Oh, it's that deathclock again. Eh. The Mayans didn't account for leap years, I read somewhere, so the world should've ended 7 months ago. Oh well. The deathclock says I have 21 minutes of life left. I'm just gonna watch it tick over and then I'm gonna laugh.

Anyone who thought that, deserves to be offended.
Oh, it seems like an interesting game. Thanks for the intro.
Its a strategy game where there are at least 2 factions. An uninformed majority(town) who do not know anyone's alignment and the informed minority( the mafia) who know who the other mafia are. The goal of the town is to kill all the mafia and the goal of the mafia is to kill enough townies to outnumber them. Every day the town votes to kill someone they think is mafia, called lynching. The mafia can kill townies at night. Many of the roles a person can have give them a special ability, for example the Cop can investiate someone of their choice at night to find out whether they are town or mafia. These abilities can help their side win. If you're interested I'd suggest either lurking a game from start to finish or participating in one.
