And for the first time I have almost no spoilers. Good for me. Looking forward to them coming out!
Also, I completely missed my 3 year anniversary... don't know how I forgot, I've been on BMGF longer than literally any other forum I'm on. Damn it.
Digitally - it's downloading now. The first game in the series I played was Wild World borrowed from a friend, and then Let's Go to the City. I'm looking forward to being able to play it on the go, like I did for the few days I had Wild World. Also, it's the first retail game I digitally bought, so no need to find somewhere to keep the cartidge safe. Can't wait for the download to finish!
And I'm not feeling very proud of my country at the moment. I actually thought we might have a chance this year (because who votes for Jedward?), but no, we actually did worse than we do most years. Oh well. We can always try again.
At least until, I don't know, August. If I can keep off Bulba that long, I have very little else to do really.
Just a heads-up.
First things first, people will rage about these names and how GF are running out of ideas. I suppose I do think the names are rather uncreative, but it won't kill me. And now, the starters. I'm leaning towards Fennekin, as long as it doesn't get Fire/Fighting evolutions. It's strange... the Gen V Pokémon still seem so new to me. It's so weird to think that Gen 4 is now what Gen 2 was when I started playing. I'm really glad the battle interface hasn't changed that much, and 3D is always nice.
