I just remembered another one that I reviewed for the site years ago. A DS game called Zubo. It's for kids, and I thought it was surprisingly good.

It's really cheap on Amazon, too.

Edit: added an Amazon link.

I agree - Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire would probably be the best choice.  You get the awesome new look, but with the simpler gameplay of an earlier entry.  X and Y are great, but that 3D town with the big circle in the middle can be extremely disorienting.  I wouldn't recommend it to someone with attention issues.

(You make me feel old, Mr. R1ft - Pokemon Red and Blue were released in the US a few months after I got married...)

Off the top of my head suggestion: my nephew is really... really into Pokemon, and I believe he started around 8.  He doesn't seem to mind reading, but he's not the best at it - any time he hits a biggish word, he tends to just guess what it probably is instead of actually reading it.

Welcome to the boards, Kristina!  Thought I should comment to let you know you're not alone.  I'm not a woman, but my wife is.  I'm 40, so feel free to guess at her approximate age. ;)  She loves games too, although I'll admit they're not generally her primary hobby.  Still, she loves 'em!

And if you've never watched the series it comes from, Police Squad, do yourself a favor and watch it.

Speaking of Dreamworks sequels, have you seen Kung Fu Panda 2?  I recently heard someone recommend it very highly.

Thing is, it's tough as a studio to make that happen. Start off making crummy games, and you probably won't have the money to make good ones. Did Blizzard make anything but really good in the beginning? Our maybe Bungie or Bioware?

As much as I love Weird Al's parodies, I've laughed more at his original stuff.  "Trigger Happy" is still the song that I laughed at the most.

I know you weren't necessarily saying this was his early work, but I just remembered to look it up, and can you believe that song was on his 7th album, from 1992? Actually, I think I read your comment wrong the first time, and I have to agree. I think his original sounds are his best work. The lead singer of Devo said that Al basically wrote the perfect Devo song in Dare To Be Stupid, for example.

Trigger Happy is a great song, no question.

That's why I don't replay that one!  Stupid bikes.

Sorry - every so often, we try removing the new member approval process, but the board inevitably gets flooded with spam when we do. :(

I'm gonna go full nerd and say that Weird Al is better now than he was in his really early stuff.  I've got his entire catalog, huge fan, going to see him in concert (finally) in May.  But it can be hard to go back to his early work and hear the fart noises and such.  Fart noises that, I'll admit, I probably loved when I first discovered him at age 13 or so.  Watching old interviews and such with him feel like he feels obligated to be wacky all the time, too.

I watched Monsters University again last night.  It's been a while, but I still really like it and its message that not everybody needs to be the quarterback.  We all have strengths, and we should recognize them and use them instead of trying to be something we're not.

I actually love the book of Princess Bride more than the movie... and I really like that movie.

I've been re-listening to the LotR BBC radio series recently, and it's also great.  Definitely longer than the movies, but still probably not as long as the books.
