FTW FRIDAY! TWITCH PLAYS POKEMON ABRIDGED: A + B + DOWN!
Twitch Plays Pokemon is still an interesting moment in the history of Pokemon, videogames, and the internet. Animating the madness, created by fan observations and mixed with a good deal of sympathy for the clearly disturbed Red, Twitchemon is exactly the sort of series that we needed to chronicle the phenomenon.
I just love how concerned everyone is for Red.
And, speaking of concern, there is the Pokemon 'Bridged series: the biggest Abridged series that you've never heard of. With over 20 episodes and a lot of great voice acting, this series uses madcap humor that goes from random to ongoing jokes to occasionally pointing out just how weird the Pokemon universe can be. Good.
Speaking of Pokemon, I tried to start to Pokemon Let's Plays that fell to the wayside for a number of reasons. That doesn't mean I've given up on my Let's Plays and I will probably give them another shot this year. Until then, unbox-king videos will keep getting made and ignored.
