Lookie what I got~
They finally came today from Amazon. I am a happy person. The figures are just as small as the Giratina figure that they gave out with Platinum. I expected that. I mean they weren't supposed to be that top of the line. But I will say they look really nice. They were designed well. And the boxes the games came in are like I don't even know. I never throw away boxes that games come in anyways but these, no way would I. So pretty and shiny. Seriously, the boxes are beautiful ^^; But I digress. Um, the Pokewalker thing is tiny. I didn't know how small this thing was but dang. I would lose this xD Not sure how much I'll use it anyways. And I have two of them because I bought both games. So if the battery dies in one I have another. Convenience~
Anyways, I started SS and I'm taking note of the differences already between the original Gold and Silver games. I like how the other character (whether you choose to be a boy or a girl) is in the game. I mean you have your rival but tis nice they give you a friend. And omg. I am obsessed with the Pokemon being able to follow you around. Whichever at the top of the list. It's seriously so cute the different things it says when you talk to them. They changed some stuff up at the beginning but it only made it better to me. Dialogue is still mostly the same. Not that it matters. I'm not sure what's up the berries thing. Since they changed all the trees to just apricorn trees. I guess they made it the same as in the other games with berries. Where you can pick them and plant them again. One thing I really like is that they have a patch of grass outside of Violet City now where you can catch a Mareep before the gym. That is awesomeness to me. Very nice addition.
The updated music is pretty good from what I've heard. No complaints. I absolutely love how they did the music when you enter a cave. That just struck me right away as purely amazing when I entered Dark Cave. That's my favorite music so far. We'll see if anything knocks it off. But yeah, I am impressed by what I see. I look forward to playing all the way through and seeing what's different and just everything. Good stuff. I knew these games were gonna be epic.
Oh, one last comment. You gotta love how Nintendo advertises in this game. In every Pokemon game your room has a Nintendo console of some kind in it. Well, in HG and SS it's a Wii. I walked up to it, pressed the A button and this is what I read: "It's a Wii! Wow, the Wii is even hot in Johto." And I said to myself really Nintendo? You did that. That's just wow. Anyways, that's all for now about this. But more definitely more in the near future as I progress.
