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.  Cut for major spoilers )  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.

I originally logged onto my laptop (the computer that has photoshop) to work on my font book.  Instead, I wound up creating a pokemon sprite for myself.  A new one, actually, as I made one for myself before.  She's in that spiffy icon I made for myself (which I might switch out because I'm in a finicky mood right now.

Basically, this is new sprite with Absol.  Dog pokemon are my absolute favs (I have no idea if Absol is considered one or not, but I consider him to be).

My absolute favorite pokemon is Growlithe (except in SoulSilver.  My god they made my puppy so ugly in that game T_T).  So I added him too in there.

This is the original sprite I made for myself a little over a year or so ago.

And I made this sprite a year ago for a friend of mine, after we had a discussion about how there weren't any black characters in pokemon.

At least I also did the font book.

Over the course of the week, I've been playing Pokemon SoulSilver.  Not too much, just a bit here and there when I have free time.  Playing it reminds me how much I loved the original Silver (and crystal).  Everything in this game I love.  From the cities to the routes to the pokemon to the people.  And the graphics are phenomenal.  The fact that it's more 3D than the last game even screwed me up a little, as a route that previously wouldn't have been passable in Diamond was the route I needed to take.  I took like 5 minutes to figure this out.  In two different spots.  Currently I'm at the lake of rage, trying to catch me a red gyarados.

But I think the thing that I like the most about the game is definitely the pokewalker.  Unlike some people who are trying to find ways to manipulate the little thing, it's actually inspired me to walk more.  I heard somewhere that one should take 10,000 steps a day, and thanks to the pokewalker I know that I'm almost half that.  I also know that the pokewalker isn't an exact pedometer, but at the same time it gives me a good idea how much generally I walk (or don't walk) on a given day.  So yeah, my goal is to work myself up to 10,000 steps daily, and then from there try to get a little more.

Anyway, if anyone else has the game, my FC is:
