WEEKLY ROUND-UP! 2/6-2/12 2012


7. WORD OF THE DAY! 2/9/12. Druthers.

Choosing your first pokemon is one of the most difficult parts of turning 10. You may be tempting to take the easy route and go with Bulbasaur or the medium route and go with Squirtle, or the harder but ultimately most rewarding route and go with Charmander. Either way you're gonna have to take the route out of Pallet town.

6. WORD OF THE DAY! 2/10/12. Commiserate.

Look on the bright side: tomorrow is the year's first Discount Candy day.

5. WORD OF THE DAY! 2/11/12. Conspiracist.

Odds are that if you look anything like this you are a stereotypical uber nerd or a grandma with poor skin.

WORD OF THE DAY! 2/12/12

rapt [rapt]
1. deeply engrossed or absorbed: a rapt listener.
2. transported with emotion; enraptured: rapt with joy.
3. showing or proceeding from rapture: a rapt smile.
4. carried off spiritually to another place, sphere of existence, etc.

EX. I personally found my range of rapt attention hangs all around this bell curve but tend to gravitate away from fighting games. I do take a little offense to Sports Games being put in the same category of shooters. Sports games, in my experience, are quite easy to pick up/enjoy. Also, Racing games aren't on the list but I'd probably put them in the same place as Platformers and Puzzle Games.
