I hope they get their shit together. I really do. But things just aren't looking up.Follow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter - two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 - due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.
At any rate, I suppose the one thing I enjoyed most out of all the different types of media Pokémon had infiltrated was the TV cartoon. There was mandatory purchases involved with the show. Sure, there's no doubt it inspired countless merchandise sales, but it was enjoyable as a stand-alone. I stumbled across this post some months ago, and seeing as how it fits with my geeky gamer past, I thought I'd share. It's a humorous look at the real meaning behind the show.Pokemon Explained « The Journal of Cartoon Overanalyzations.Follow @harveywalker Follow @ClosetCaseRoman
