I bought a Nintendo DS second hand over a week ago, I am having a ridiculous amount of good fun with the first Pokemon Dungeon (Blue) game I bought along with it. It's incredibly addictive. And I'm only what... 6 years late! New record!
(For the curious I was Pikachu at first but then soon afterwards something happened to the file where I had to delete and start again- and then I became Squirtle the second time... eh whatever, my partner is a Charmander, who has kind of always been my favourite Pokemon in the anime as a kid, I always thought he was adorable- plus Charizard could fly, what's not awesome about that?)
I am now however shipping Hero/Partner to a disturbing degree. Which makes me wonder if that's some weird self insert abomination. Even if of course everyone gets the same dialogue regardless, with only your names switched. It's just a good story, better then I expected, and I'm sometimes weak to best friends ending up as romantic partners.
Still regardless, I also bought a Zelda game too, for when I'm finished with this (my partner and I are about to go into the sky for our last mission-apparently- though I have my doubts, doesn't that leave the Gengar plot thread dangling if so, it makes more sense in a happy game especially for him to be redeemed?!- but I'm training us both up before then because I've had a look at it before escaping and it's enemies seem difficult).
I however also from a few youtube videos now want PMD2 as well. I might choose a different partner to Charmander depending on what I get. Or I might get attached. IDK. Even though I grew with old school pokemon in the anime I might try that Treeko one as a partner. Or that fire monkey.... thing. (Chimchar?)
I guess I've realised something now: I only really seem to get into hand held games, PC and bigger gamestation games haven't held my interest like this before- and this isn't just a fluke, years ago my sister and I shared a gameboy colour and advance and the same thing happened there for me when we played with other peoples stations of played on our PC so... live and learn. I guess if I become a gamer it will only be in hand held games.
Sorry if you see me writing Hero/Partner fic, I know, I know, I should probably be ashamed. -Hangs head-
Anyone else played this game? If so what Pokemon were you? What was your partner? Did you like it or get any of the other games in the series?
