My Heart Was Broken Today

   0

Recently a post by vexed alex put me on a poke-binge.
I went back and played all the old pokemans i could get my hands on red, blue, yellow, but when I prepared to boot up my personal favorite in the collection I was crushed to find that my save file had been deleted! Needless to say, I was crushed. I had spent countless hours on that game tracking down pokemon and trading with the asshats that collected at Toys R Us on Saturday morning to collect the most of "'Em All" as I could.

Fortunately this hadn't happened back then. I'm older now, and after a small amount of mourning I pulled myself together and did the only thing that could perk me up. Start a new file.

It's a magical thing to start a new file on a pokemon game. You only get to do it once in a while, and usually only when you get a new game, so starting up an old classic reminded me of how little I actually remember about my "favorite" pokemon title. I obsessively put in about 8 hours of gameplay. I beat the first few gyms, raised a few cool pokemon and was happy and content to continue after some sleep.

The next morning (today) I turned on my game, hoping to catch some of the early morning pokemon, only to be greeted with another erased save file.

"What the fuck is this shit?" I think was all I said.

Upon investigation on the subject, it appears that the little batteries that the pokemon silver/gold/crystal cartridges use to save the date and time die in a few years. Last year was the year that all those kids who bought a copy of silver or gold when it first came out began to die.

I want to write Nintendo a letter demanding something for the 200+ hours I've wasted on this game.

If you hate pokemon, thats cool. If you just went to check and see if your copy did the same as mine, sorry.
