Game of the Month: October 2013, Wrestling Dead, Star Wars and Halloween

Game of the Month:It's Pokemon X and Y!

Is it too soon to label Pokemon X and Y as the best entries in the series? I honestly think this might be the case. It's been a long time since I've been so engrossed in a Pokemon title. Even the better ones of the more recent generations didn't grab my attention like this.

Pokemon X is simply stunning. It's the feather in the cap in what has arguably been the single greatest year for any handheld ever (and 3DS STILL has Zelda to look forward to). I hope in 2014 Nintendo gives similar attention to Wii U (which it looks to for the first few months of the year, let's hope for some announcements for down the road).

Pokemon X and Y irons out the wrinkles of past entries (improving a Pokemon's base stats is especially streamlined), adds some great changes to the formula, and adds in a fresh new visual style to the whole affair.

Not since the earlier generations of Pokemon have I been so tempted to "catch them all."

I also considered giving Game of the Month to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, seeing as it's my favorite 3D Zelda and one of my favorite games of all time. But it's a remake of a classic, so I went with the terrific new Pokemon.

The Wrestling Dead:After much procrastination, I've finally begun working on the seventh final episode of The Wrestling Dead. Hopefully it will be done soon, but I can't guarantee a specific time, since it's going to be a long one. I do promise, however, that it will be the most ridiculous and over-the-top entry. IT will jump the shark. IT will nuke the fridge. It will nuke the shark!

The very first episode of The Wrestling Dead recently amassed over a million views! To celebrate, I made this short video.

So if you watch my junk...there you go.

Star Wars: I watched the original Star Wars (A New Hope) last night, and it's really amazing how this movie never gets old. I've practically had the movie memorized scene for scene, line for line since I was a kid, but it still never gets old.

I really hope the sequel trilogy lives up to the glorious originals, because really the only downside to watching one of the original trilogy movies is knowing all the gaping plot holes the prequel trilogy made for them (wait...so Uncle Owen owned C3-P0 in the past...but he doesn't remember 3P0 when the Jawas sell the droid to him??? Did George Lucas ever watch his own movie?). So hopefully those turn out well.

Halloween: Happy early Halloween everyone!

My Izzy costume is pretty much done. Though I actually have an appointment with one of my sister's hair dressers to get my hair done up for the costume. Because accuracy. Hope everyone has a great day. And if you're dressing up, feel free to say what as.

It truly is amazing how the original Star Wars trilogy stands so well against its age. The same can't be said about the prequels (though I don't actually hate any of them and consider Revenge of the Sith to be a fantastic movie) as I recently watched them and noticed how they haven't aged very well.

Happy Halloween. I don't have anything planned yet for a costume, but I always cook up something original at the last minute.

@dylan417 I can tolerate watching the prequels, but their flaws are numerous and obvious. The two aspects about them I simply can't stand though are Hayden Christensen, and the plot holes. 


Hope you whip up a great costume.
