Firstly, welcome to 2013 everybody. Here's hoping this new year will be a good one.
Secondly, I've finally retired that decade old laptop I've been using these many years for a brand new one I got for Christmas. It took a few days to get it running to my standards, but now it works like a dream and I'm looking forward to spending some quality time getting properly acquainted with it. It should even make word processing a little easier for me since I won't have to contend with a separate USB keyboard prone to constant lagging anymore.
Next up, I'm sure just about everyone in the Pokemon fandom has heard the announcement
about the upcoming Pokemon X and Pokemon Y slated for the first ever simultaneous worldwide release this October on the 3DS. This is a huge step forward and I'm really looking forward to it. It also means that there aren't going to be any online guides to help out us international players based on an earlier Japanese release because we'll all be getting the new games at the same time. And, in a way, that kind of makes it even better.
New starters, new legendary pokemon, and a fully 3D world to explore on a brand new adventure. It has a lot of potential.
Of course, for now, I've still got a lot of pages left to fill up in my pokedex for the 5th generation so I think I can handle the wait until then.
