So I got Okamiden pretty much the day it came out, and 25 hours of game play later...  I officially beat it.  OMG that game <333.  It was like an overdose of cute.  The character designs were adorable, the art was gorgeous, and the storyline was fantastic.  I'll admit, I was skeptical in the beginning as the game was riddled with spelling errors, and then later on as the plot started to go in what seemed like a completely different direction, but it managed to completely tie itself together in the end to make a very enjoyable story.  And Kurow T_T.  I'll admit it, I cried.  I kept hoping Waka would show up at the end and heal him, even though Waka technically hadn't been born when he died...  I completely felt more for him than I did for Kuni, because at that point Kuni had been out of my life for so long it was hard to reconnect with him.  But then again that tease at the end for more Kuni/Chibi team ups did warm my heart.  Also, nothing can convince me otherwise that Kuni didn't take on the name Kurow after Susano "disowned" him, especially once I saw he was carrying around Kurow's moon mirror thing.  My biggest complaint with the game was the spelling errors, as well as the fact that the brush strokes didn't always work correctly, even though I know I was doing them right.

And now that I've finished with that, I've moved onto Pokemon White.  Holy crap this game is Pokemon for grown ups, isn't it?  Everything just seems more mature for a Pokemon game, and the whole "liberation" theme is also aimed more for my generation than the hoardes of kiddies I sold the game to.  I'm also beginning to think I need a PhD to figure out how the hell the C Gear works, because just looking at it makes my brain explode.  Bianca and Cleven or whatever are kind of annoying, but I like the idea of having friends instead of rivals, kind of like in Ruby/Sapphire with that blonde kid.  And then there's the "you can only catch Gen V Pokemon until after you beat the Elite Four."  I really like this idea.  I know that a lot of people seem not to, but so far the Pokemon I've seen are beyond adorable (I decided to go into this blind without looking at the Pokemon in advance) and it means that I never have to see another Geodude in my life for a long, long time.

It's a lot of fun. Really well made, too. I'm digging the semblance of a story.

Great to hear Okamiden was so much fun! I'll have to come back and read the full spoilers after I finish. Sadly, I have yet to start the game: while I'm eager to play, personal policy is not to start new games until I finished the last one I bought, and I'm still making my way through Pokemon Black :)

Yep, picked up a copy on this end too: not a huge Poke fan (actually haven't picked up a game since the original Gold) but I heard so many good reviews I thought it'd be fun to try, and I am enjoying it: I like the Friends/Rivals twist, and I love that they went back to only the new Pokemon until you beat the game. One of the reasons I stopped at Gen III was because it kept getting harder and harder to remember 'em all!

I'm completely the same way, so don't feel bad! I purposely waited on White because I knew I wanted to play Okamiden.

I like that too. Despite playing every pokemon game ever, I'm liking this one the best. I definitely agree with you about having issues remembering them all.
