The Shadow’s Sixty Countdown – Rank 42-37

I’m posting this from another place… as I’m currently on vacation in Vancouver. But I didn’t want to leave you guys completely hanging with nothing to read, so I got this all set up for you!

The Shadow’s Sixty has crossed eras, genres, and styles. It’s featured the largest and smallest gaming has to offer… we’ve witnessed the birth of a genre and the refinement of another. We’ve crossed time itself, defeated Gods, and created unfathomable treasures. And that was just the first quarter… imagine what the rest has in store for us?

This entry gives us the opportunity to explore an ancient city, blow our friends up, race across a rainbow road, and even use the power of dragons! Without further ado… let’s explore Ranks 42 to 37 of the Shadow’s Sixty.

Pokemon X – Social Trivialities

I was a fan of Pokémon as a child, back during the original Pokémon era… I watched the original show and played Blue back in the day. I lost interest when the show started having Pokémon talent shows and other utterly ridiculous concepts… but I’ve always hoped for a game that allowed me to truly get that Pokémon battle experience. It’s one of those childhood fantasies that just won’t go away – right there with the old 90’s movie style VR. It’s unlikely to ever become a reality, but Pokémon X is trying to take us one step closer to it.
