Why you should buy Pokémon Shining Pearl

If you’re unfamiliar with them, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are remakes of the original games that came out on the DS. For many folks, these two games were rather controversial, not because they were bad but because they were sort of transitionary. More specifically, while they tend to rank low among the best Pokémon games, fans will often mention that the Pokémon look great because of the DS technology, but the franchise feels like it’s treading water with this one.

One of the biggest changes with this remake is adding the Grand Underground, an underground cave system you can explore once you have an Explorers Kit. While you can still do the same digging in the walls to find treasures, you can now get access to rooms full of wild Pokémon that you can attack and capture. There’s also the option of creating a secret base underground, with the ability to lure different types of Pokémon based on the status you set up there.

Overall, Pokémon Shining Pearl is a great remake of a transitionary Pokémon title and is definitely worth a play if you want to experience an important part of Pokémon history, albeit with better graphics and performance. If you do end up grabbing a copy, check out these guides on how to breed Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and how to transfer Pokémon from Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to Pokémon Home.

Audio-Technica has three of its best turntables on sale for Prime Day
The Audio Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable.

More than a decade ago, my first ever turntable was the Audio-Technica AT-LP120, a beast of a direct-drive machine that starts and stops on a dime, is stable as all hell, and couldn't be easier to use. I still have it, and while I've added several other types and grades of turntables over the years, it's still in regular, er, rotation in my setup.

As far as entry-to-mid-level turntables go, Audio-Technica is one of the best brands out there -- we feature several of them on our best turntables list.
