Pokemon X/Y: I finally jump on the bandwagon

Despite having grown up in the age of Pokemon, I never gave into the hype and played any of the games.

Now, just shy of my 31st birthday, I've decided to finally dip my toe into those critter-filled waters and, because I can't do anything game-related these days without writing about it, I've put together a short series highlighting the events.

The first link will lead you to the pre-game article, giving a bit of background on my (lack of) history with Pokemon, my reasons for ignoring the series all these years, and my reasons for breaking the habit with the latest Pokemon for 3DS.

Article two gives you a rundown of my first day with the game, which was spent lounging around the house with six friends, all of us pouring a ridiculous number of hours into the game on the day of its release.

The third article circles back three weeks following the launch to see how I felt about the game after spending more than a day with it.
