  1. What happened to Sean on Idle Thumbs?

    He's the end boss battle, turns out he was a Big Dog the whole time. An M. Night Shyamalamadingdong twist.

    care to explain?
  3. Hey all, just a quick question. Where did Sean go? He was a great addition to the podcast but I never hear him mentioned anymore. Is he more behind the scenes or is he working on something else?
  4. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

    Just picked up Ruby yesterday and I have to say this is the most fun I've ever had playing Pokemon. I've been playing since the start of the franchise and had a hard time getting through the Y because it finally began to feel repetitive. However. with the Pokenav mechanic implemented in Ruby, the game feels refreshing. As a kid, I always wanted to hunt for specific Pokemon and I wished the environmental battles weren't so random. Now that I can search for specific pokemon and compare abilities/move sets, it feels like a new game. Moreover, I enjoy "completing" an area by finding all the pokemon there are in a specific area. In my opinion, this mechanic takes out some of the guessing work of choosing a pokemon without taking away the novelty the franchise has created. All in all, I'm loving this game.
  5. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hey! I've been listening to Idle Thumbs for a but now and decided to check out the community. I enjoy adventure games, RPG style games, and some FPS style games as well. I look forward to being a part of mindful discussions of video games.
