ActionJ4ck's Weekend Update (Sept 18, 2016 - Sept 24, 2016)

Pokemon Jacklocke Challenge

My foray into the world of Pokemon continued in parts 13 and 14 of his FireRed Jacklocke Challenge. I finally got the TM I was looking for and accidentally commit arson with it. Read about it all here:

And as always you can catch up on any other parts that you missed here.

I wasn't able to pre-purchase and download Paper Mario: Color Splash before Nintendo pulled it from the eShop, so I suppose I won't be playing that this week. I've been quite busy for the last week, so I will be looking forward to the sweet, sweet Overwatch time. I might also consider picking up Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits on Friday. Also, the website's look has been changed, now to something that doesn't look like it was made in the early 2000's. I hope you all like it, because I know I do.
