You'll understand when you're an adult. :)

Paranorman was amazing. I heartily recommend it.

IMO it's better than Frankenweenie and Wreck it Ralph, but it didn't do very well in the theater.

It can be a daunting challenge, to be sure. It's a shame that all 6 Pokemon you carry with you can't share in the XP. Especially when your main is 20 levels higher than the next closest one. Sure there are usually 2 exp shares per game, but it's still a helluva grind.

It was a 3DS release game. Nobody plays Yoshi Touch & Go anymore either.

I don't play Pokemon because I've seen the terrible face of Math hidden within the cute monsters. I just get overwhelmed by knowing what I'll have to do to get them in fighting shape!

Precisely.

And the fact that the Pokemon didn't level actually drove me crazy.

Rumble Blast is good for a kid that can't quite play a full on, traditional Pokemon game, but for anyone here. Avoid it. I bought it and it was pretty terrible. Zero challenge. Boring. Bland.

Rumble Blast wasn't great.

I agree with you though, embrace the inner kid, don't ignore it!

yeah, I'm really looking fwd. to it ... loved the old games, & will get the references. can hardly wait. but I think that if adults find enjoyment with animated films or E rated games, they should embrace them ... no harm no foul. I've had a lot of fun playing games my son loves & co-op with many of them is quite entertaining. I even gave Pokemon Rumble Blast a go on the 3DS & had fun ... I've never played any other Pokemon games, but I may try one yet.

Heck, the original Toy Story is amoung one of my favorite movies. And the last one especially had some really adult-type moments like the

furnace scene. That had me tearing up.
**********END TOY STORY 3 SPOILERS*************

But not to derail your OT (But interesting) conversation ;P For those who want a bit more challenge is the Pokemon games, try playing with less than 6 Pokemon in your crew. I've gone through a majority of a playthrough of HG using less than 6 in my crew until late game. I caught Pokemon but sent them to the PC, or didn't use them. I ended up leveling only the ones I wanted for the Elite Four. Makes it a bit tougher. Also, there are more trainers to battle after the Elite Four in recent games that are challenging.

In fairness I think Wreck It Ralph was geared towards adults, simply because of all of the Old School Game References.

exactly, b/c often the humor & lots of references are designed for adults to enjoy ... we have Kung Fu Panda 1 but I have to pick up 2 for us ... there are so many good ones, hard to keep up. I want to check out Frankenweenie & Paranorman ... & Wreck it Ralph when it releases.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 7:24:51 AM PST
Kung fu Panda 1 and 2 remain 2 of my favorite movies of all time. I saw em in theaters with my friends, we were laughing like crazy the whole time... The kids in the theater didn't seem to find it as funny as we did though.

How to Train your Dragon is an excellent film ... we own it. I find most of the animated films in recent years are intentionally designed to appeal to adults - I mean lets face it, are 7 yr olds taking themselves out to the theatre ? the off the cuff humor that will mainly fly right over the heads of young children is perfect for the adults watching .... we've been collecting animated films for years - I have an 8 yr. old, & often they are way more fun - even for me & I'm beyond 40 .... trifocals & all ! lol my son has all the animated Batman & Justice League on disc, & many of the storylines are quite engaging for me to watch ... these are not the old Elmer Fudd cartoons anymore ... much more depth, to say nothing of graphics with cgi & all. Pixar / Dreamworks make fantastic films ... & often the soundtracks for Disney classics are very enjoyable.

Yikes, denial is an ugly thing Flores.

You didn't see How to Train your Dragon's in theaters because of someone else? Or because the Theater wouldn't let you?

I'm pretty sure an adult who's freakishly obsessed with an electronics company is far more creepy.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 6:42:27 AM PST
Yeah, but I have to say I'm a better person now than I was at 25, so it's all a tradeoff.

Well at our age, a couple years isn't that big a deal anymore IMHO. Anyway, we be getting old, lol.

How to Train Your Dragon is a brilliant movie, I wish I had seen it in the theaters.

That's exactly why I didn't go see How To Train Your Dragon even though I really wanted to. Damn pedo's ruin it for everyone.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 6:38:25 AM PST
You're older than me?! I kind of thought we were the same age.

You're only two years younger than me?

Pokemon day is def geared more toward all ages. They're challenging and pretty damn addicting.
