I am much more excited about Pokemon. Hurrah!
Which version are you getting? Pokemon White or Pokemon Black?
I pre-ordered White on Amazon for the $10 credit towards future Amazon purchases. Plus the pre-order pokemon, Victini, looks adorable. :> I went with White since White Forest appeals to me more than Black City (I prefer catching Pokemon to battling trainers and I hardly ever buy items in shops beyond the basic necessities).
I haven't made up my mind on the starter yet. I'm thinking either Snivy or Oshawott. I haven't started with a grass-type since Bulbasaur and I haven't started with a water-type since… I've never started with a water-type. The fire/fighting starter is above and beyond old hat and my inner-adventurer craves something different. Hmm.
