@TriforceBun Fair enough. Not sure if the style changes all that much over the course of the game, but I think the weakest songs are in the first couple of worlds, for what that's worth. I just wanted an excuse to post that song, really.
It's surprisingly addictive so far--I like making incremental improvements to my deck when I win a new Booster Pack ("Sweet, another Bill!"). I'd probably recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the TCG in the past. And it does indeed have a story mode--while it's pretty basic, you do get to walk around and talk to people and battle, which gives it just enough of a sense of scope to link it closer to the Pokemon adventures.
Wait is it? Eh, never mind. I probably won't end up playing it anyway. Like most of my Wii U games. I'm trying to remember the last time I even turned the system on. Or any of my consoles, now that I think about it.
Like that mini-game in Nintendo Land? (well, that was ninja stars, so...not quite the same)
Yeah, I was always confused as to why there weren't more card games on DS (and 3DS) as well. I mean, there were a few, but...man! The interface was nearly custom-made for games like that, but it rarely happened. And now the same thing is happening with the U. What gives?
Yeah, it was pretty terrible that Origins was a North American-only release (er, besides Japan of course). I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get a copy of it soon. It's a very good RPG and a much better execution of what the original Baten Kaitos set forth to do.
