MY POKEMANS

I haven't been able to finish any of these Pokémon games since I picked up something to play them on. It's kind of shameful, and I don't really know if the problem is an inability to save state or the general lack of critters I like. I'm 75% certain it's the latter.

Anyway, while picked up a copy of Pokémon Pearl ages ago, I really haven't touched it in about as long. However, I was poking around the TV Tropes wiki again (I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT) over the weekend, and happened upon an individual claiming that the Pokémon games were the only ones they allowed themselves to cheat at.

I am not nearly so virtuous, but, apparently, not quite so quick on the uptake, either. Seeing the genesis of a brilliant waste of perfectly good money, I hied myself to Best Buy for an Action Replay DS and a copy of Pokémon Diamond. So far, it's been nice, being able to cart around all three starting critters, and their equivalents from the Gold/Silver games. Not sure it'll hold my interest, but I figure it's worth a shot. Having basically infinite amounts of dosh is kinda handy, too.

(I grabbed yet another cartridge on the off chance that I might want to play against, say, Der Pikafoop at some point. It seemed unsporting to do otherwise.)

I should stop checking the SW:tOR forums

There's no information, and reading people's speculation and I-wants is producing a nigh-irresistable temptation to respond "Well, that's because you're an idiot."

iTunes Artwork fetching is horribly broken.

Look, I know it's confusing, but I really think that iTunes ought to be able to guarantee that at least one of Weezer's three eponymous albums have the correct artwork. Instead, the blue and red albums (1994 and 2008, respectively) both have the artwork for the green album, which has none.

Yes, I realize there are better solutions to this problem. I'm just saying, if you're going to be wrong, couldn't you at least be consistently wrong? Especially if you've got the right art inside the iTunes store?

Useless Information + Wiki Singularity =

TV Tropes.

So much time lost. So much totally useless terminology added to my vocabulary (e. g.)

Chrono Trigger DS is out

At least, I received a copy from Amazon yesterday evening. I assume it's out. I was mildly miffed about paying more than the usual $30 for a DS game, but it came with a soundtrack disc. Only two tracks, though, so it's obviously not complete, but I thought that was a nice bonus.
