Read and prosper: So you're a grown-ass adult paying $239 to play pokemon.












I'm going for X because Xerneas (majestic as f***) ftw. What version are you all going for and why?

This is the part where I could point out the guy is an obvious troll.
But it doesn't matter if you're obvious or not. You're still acting like a douchebag.

Guess what, people generally doesn't like douchebags.


"Think of all the fiscally responsible things you could have done with $238.99

The money you just dropped on your shiny new toy is money that could have been more practically invested."


Yup, the guy's harebrained.
Depending on how often and how much you spend money on "leisure activities", $238.99 doesn't have to be a "sh*tload of money".
I am sure this guy doesn't visit funfairs or go to the cinema either.
Or watch a movie at home, or play other videogames that isn't pokemon...
Those things doesn't boost your career. And oh my god! What a waste of time those activities are... :roll:

Not going to get it day 1, will wait till xmas. Right now I have other games to take care off.

I'm going with X, guess I just like deers, end of story.
For me, the version differences matters much less today when you can trade pokemåns online anyway.

Compared to a fail-attempt-troll vid I got in, at least he put some effort into it.

Still couldn't bring myself to read much though...

The whole article was written as a bit of a joke and not necessarily to be taken as a super serious debate. ;)
I just wish he would have made the counterpoints a bit longer to at least match some of the length of the prior arguments.

Well I'm not waiting quite that long get it it, and instead will just wait until I'm off on Monday to go nab a copy for myself. In all honesty with Pokemon Black/White the way I made my decision was which legendary I liked better, and as such opted for Black because I liked look of Reshiram over the other one. I just so happen to like the look of Xerneas more than Yveltal for the latest outting, but before any of those I couldn't say due to the fact that I didn't get any of the others... (Red Version ftfw)

Too true, Steam has profile privacy settings and I'd suggest you change yours to something other than "Public" for reasons such as Dusk mentioned. At least you are doing very a good job of not letting him get to you Sly, which is pretty much the only thing you can do outside of outright ignoring asshats like that.

I'm getting Y because Yveltal is awesome looking and way cool.

He's like... an evil phoenix. Aw yeah.

That article is full of [filtered]. What 8 year old knows how to properly EV train a Pokemon?
But I see at the end it was just a dumb joke anyways.

I actually had to make changes to my profile, since the new steam level system (blech) thing, two of my links weren't showing up. I had to cut off some things.
