    Hey, you mentioned my name! :D Haven't played Pokemon for awhile, but Pikachu is always the first one that came up in my mind when Pokemon is mentioned...

    Here's my question for the next Ask GamesRadar: What is everyone's current 'Sleeper Hit of the Year'? Mine would have to be Remember Me. Great game that was totally overlooked for a number of reasons.

    After reading that article about game genres I have a question: If you could make a video game in any genre, what genre would you use? For me, I'd love to make a JRPG, since I've played more than a lot of them.

    HFCYD is one of my favorite regular articles on the site. It's as close as I can currently get to a Towell Joke Factory. My favorite Pokemon is genuinely... Magikarp. All of the time and effort I've put in with Magikarps over the years has really endeared them to me. Sure you can't really use one in battle (exception: those YouTube videos of people annihilating legendaries with Magikarps), but at some point in practically every Pokemon game you'll have one sitting in your first spot for a good while. Ask GamesRadar Question: What game do you have sitting at the bottom of your "To be played" pile that you should probably give up on?

    It's a toss up between Archeops and Malamar, both greatly types and both suprised me outright!
  • SpadesSlick - October 22, 2013 8:21 a.m.

    My favorite pokemon without a question is Misdreavus. The perfect combination of adorable and badass. Does your favorite pokemon literally eat people's fear for sustenance? Didn't think so.
  • JMarsella09 - October 22, 2013 6:34 a.m.

    Eevee, because of all that swag.

    My favourite Pokémon is...Blitzle. I think that goes without saying. Also, I really like the "HFCYDI..." videos! My only suggestion is that, would it be totally out of the question to do a HFCYDI Retro as well, alongside the new releases? It could be a one-off thing where you pack a bunch of games back to back in one video, because I imagine its faster to die in older games; the thing I don't like about the current HFCYDI is that a majority of the time is decided by the length of the initial cutscene and whether or not its skippable, lawls. Also, can I re-ask a couple unanswered questions from before, in the slim hopes you'll read one? Haha. What's with GamesRadar's orange-accented visage? Is it an important part of your image that has some kind of underlying reasoning, such as avoiding connotations with the major systems, and therefore, bias, or is it more of a "nobody else uses orange, let's stick with that" scenario? Could you imagine if GamesRadar used a different colour? Has GamesRadar ever had a prominently displayed box quote (or similar endorsement) that the writer in question is, in hindsight, either proud or ashamed of? Rather, has GamesRadar ever had any prominently featured box quotes at all, and does that matter to you?

    They have a quote in the Arkham Origins trailer, and you can be damn sure Henry is proud of it. (Assuming it was Henry's quote, he reviewed it so I'm only assuming it was his)
  • Shinn - October 25, 2013 12:55 a.m.

    Um, ok so both of those should read Hollander, not Henry. Weirdest auto-correct ever.
  • Shinn - October 28, 2013 7:51 p.m.

    The launch trailer on the pcgamer channel: I just checked a couple of NZ sites and ign too and it looks like it's in all of them.
  • mbavalo - October 22, 2013 2:56 a.m.

    I generally avoid "how fast you can die" until I have played the game myself. DOn't want any spoilers of any kind :D
  • Shinn - October 21, 2013 10:11 p.m.

    Dragonite is my favorite, always has been, always will be. I've always thought it was one of the coolest looking Pokemon, and it's versatility in battle is always welcome.
  • g1rldraco7 - October 21, 2013 9:59 p.m.

    I like Charizard and Mightyena. Do you guys perform exercises in the office because 80% of your staff are twigs.
  • Unoriginal - October 21, 2013 7:02 p.m.

    If it turns out Rocksteady is taking a break from the Arkham games to work on another superhero, rather than another Batman game, what character would you like to see them perfect in video game form next?
  • winner2 - October 21, 2013 6:56 p.m.

    My favorite is Kyogre. He created the OCEANS. The OCEANS, god damnit. What is the biggest secret at GR that you all wish you knew the details of? Like what's the mystery you all whisper about?
  • J-Fid - October 21, 2013 6:43 p.m.

    Skarmory is easily the best Pokemon ever! No one can stand up to the mighty Iron Bird.
  • supergiraffe - October 21, 2013 6:28 p.m.

    What are your hobbies when you start to feel tired of gaming all day?
  • phoenixwright13 - October 21, 2013 6:23 p.m.

    What is your favorite Video Game Character?
