Crap, what was Mario & Luigi 3?

I honestly had no idea a third game had been released.

Only the Japanese version is out, so obviously the only thing being missed right now is the witty dialogue. It's been easy to work through so far though, and the battle system switching (inhaling an enemy with Bowser and fighting it with Mario & Luigi, for instance) is pretty fun.

I liked the first two but they wore thin after awhile...completely stopped playing them for some reason.

For some reason I'm playing Pokemon Blue again.  I don't know why yet I can't seem to get away from it now.

pokemon games... after a while they just get boring because they're the same thing over and over with a new theme. But I still play them, too, so don't feel bad.

man. I remember when I was in Middle School, I had Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow, and a couple of Game Boy Colors. I had every pokemon and Mew. but I didn't use a gameshark to get Mew. My uncle had gone on a trip to New York while he was staying in Ohio and actually went to a ....whatever you call it, and they were putting Mew on people's pokemon games. He came back and we did the copy pokemon trick where we both end up with the pokemon. I ended up having Mew on all three games.

Of course, this is the same uncle that, a few years later, stole my game boy color and my pokemon games, so that was the end of that. It was cool while it lasted, though. AND I was the only one in school that had Mew on my games.

If I do I'm going to finish the game first.  I don't want to risk glitching up the game before I've finished it.

Actually I find the ones in the middle the best.  At least in the main series.  (Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh)  All of them were good but my two favorites were Crystal and Emerald.

IDK, Yellow and the anime intro'd me to Pikachu. Speaking of the anime, I have reason to believe it may be an offshoot of Yellow, or vice versa, and given the air date of the first ep of the anime, I'd say the latter.

Thing about my liking of Pikachu is, it wasn't Pika-popularity in the anime, or uber pwnage in Yellow that sealed the deal.

It was...

*gasp*

SUPER SMASH BROS.

Uber pwnage WAS the reason, but SSB was much better than Yellow, and not just overall, but I mean, I kicked the Hands' ASSES (do they even have asses? ;) ) as Pikachu in Melee.

Yeah, I found that as well, that the first 3(red, blue and yellow) and the last two(Diamond and Pearl) were the best, the rest of them are kind of lame. Probably because not many people play the ones in the middle.

When emulators and roms first came out, I had a friend that downloaded a rom and that you could use both Red and Blue version at the same time on the same screen. It was so much fun, I'd be Red and he'd be Blue and we'd race to see who could beat Brock first :D

you know, I've played almost every single pokemon game that has come out and while I have noticed differences in them, major differences. A majority of the game play is the same.
