Got Smash U at launch. Played it for like 8 straight hrs straight, whilst consuming many beers, then took a 2hr nap then played some more like another 2hrs then was like. Goddamn I'm getting old because I just cannot do those 20hr binges anymore. So then I got Alpha Sapphire so that I can replay my least favorite Pokemon game of all time (well... until X/Y's post game ruined everything...). Yes, I'm a R/S hater. So sue me. The story sucked balls and they took out the Day/ Night system, BUT STILL MADE YOU SET A CLOCK.
Anyways. I'm enroute to the 3rd badge, and I'm actually really enjoying it. Mostly because Hoenn now experiences night time like everywhere else in the world, even though it doesn't happen til 9PM. Weirdos.
The 6th gen mechanics also help. Also, Event Beldum for the mother fucking win. If you have the game, fucking download that thing. NOW. It also comes holding the mega stone so you mega evo when you get there. AND IT'S SHINY
And I got Hyrule Warriors a while back, beat it, then got ALL THE DLC... and beat that too. Still working on Adventure Mode, but it's honestly annoyingly hard without a second player to tag along and abuse. >.> Still highly recommend the game to any Zelda fans looking for something to fool around with until Zelda U comes out in two years, and of course there's Majora's Mask 3D next year to look forward too.
