Pokemon!

This may not be much of a coherent post here, but Pokemon!

I recently lent my copy of Pokemon Fire Red on Gameboy Advance to my girlfriend, in the hopes that she would enjoy it (she isn’t much of a gamer). This then made me start to reminisce about Pokemon myself, so I fired up the ol’ emulator and started a game myself! So, here are some pictures. Woop.

My very first battle! ^_^

Could be a hell of a long fight...

Top Ten – Dogs in Video Games

10. Mojo

180px-OB-creature-MojoThis pooch lives in the Anvil Fighter’s Guild in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. He’s a loyal guild-dog, and technically a full member of the guild itself.

9. PaRappa

parappaThat loveable rapping dog/thing. Remember kids, learning can be fun!

8. Dogmeat

dogmeatMan’s best post-apocalyptic friend, Dogmeat appears in Fallout 3 (and his ancestor in the original games), and will be a loyal companion if you help him out. And he fetches things for you too!

7. Dog (Resident Evil 4)

dogs_residentevil4If you choose to make Leon help out this dog, you will be rewarded. He’ll make the El Gigante fight that little bit easier.

6. Peter Puppy

peter_puppy_by_edyouassbaka-d58q8d6Earthworm Jim’s friend, Peter Puppy is a dog who changes into a monster when threatened. A useful trait, except when he goes for Jim.

5. Barbas

barbasEveryone’s favourite talking dog, Barbas is Clavicus Vile’s companion, though they don’t always see eye to eye on his nefarious Daedric doings.

4. Dog (Fable II)

fable-2-dog-2If Dogmeat was good at finding stuff for you, he’d be in a close second to your treasure tracking pal from Fable II. This guy is a whiz at finding those troublesome dig spots.

3. Dog (Dragon Age: Origins)

dragonageoriginswardogcStrictly not called a dog but a “Mabari War Hound”, these vicious beasts are loyal and deadly, being used by the protagonist and the Fereldan military alike. (Mild early-game spoilers in this next clip.)

2. Arcanine

ArcanineIn my opinion, there is no cooler Pokemon than an Arcanine. Fire-wolf, species is listed as a “Legendary Pokemon”, what’s not to love?

1. Amaterasu

amaterasu_6I almost feel like taking back what I just wrote about Arcanine, because Okami’s Amaterasu is truly legendary. The sun goddess, Amaterasu paints the world good again, quite literally. The art style in this game is fantastic, along with the music, setting and feel of it. A majestic place for the top dog (pun intended).

So, that’s it! Were there any dogs you think should have made it into the top ten and didn’t? Comment below and let me know!
