Poll #81: "What do you think of the Grand Theft Auto series?" results, banner

"I love it!" 9 votes (37%)
"It's kinda fun" 3 votes (12%)
"I'm indifferent" 1 vote (4%)
"I don't like it" 5 votes (20%)
"I hate it!" 2 votes (8%)
"I don't know" 4 votes (16%)

Got a good, varied set of votes on this one. I'm surprised to see so many people say they love it on what is primarily a Nintendo blog. I myself voted "I love it!" back before I actually got my hands on Chinatown Wars, and now I'm wishing I added a "Oh my god it's FANTASTIC" option to the poll. Chinatown Wars is just mind-blowing, people, but that's all I'll be saying until the review (Hopefully) later this week.

This week's banner is in celebration of the release of Pokémon Platinum, and has been carefully hand-crafted by me. And by carefully hand-crafted, I mean whipped up in Photoshop in under ten minutes. Dammit, Jim, I'm a writer, not a Photoshopper!

As for this week's poll, it is of a similar topic: "Are you interested in Pokémon Platinum?" I was sort of interested in it up until I got Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Turns out I wasn't actually interested in Platinum as much as I was interested in something new to play on my DS. Looking at all the facts, I just don't think Platinum does enough for me over Diamond to warrant a purchase. All the added features just seem... Frivolous. Unrelated to the core Pokémon experience. It seems to only be diluting the game instead of enhancing it. And you can bet it'll all be forgotten and abandoned come generation five, just like all the enhancements granted to the previous "Third games".

I've got a couple ideas floating around for the next article (One of which being the aforementioned Chinatown Wars review), but I don't think I'll be getting started until at least tomorrow. It's getting kinda late, and I'd rather work on the next update when I'm more... Well, awake. So, in other words, th-th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all, folks (For today)!

The police guy named Looker is worth the price alone :)

I dunno man, but I really want a remake of Pokemon Silver. Seriously.

I agree with Monodi, Gold and Silver were my favorite Pokemon games of all time. We need LeafGreen/FireRed style remakes of those too.

A cracking banner as always!

Chinatown Wars is amazing - I've been getting to bed far too late thanks to its addictiveness...
