This is a 6-minute video of 'PokÃ©mon Type: Wild', a fan-made (playable!) video game that re-imagines the turn-based franchise as a fast-action brawl complete with special-move animations. Admittedly, I do hate taking turns playing video games. I'm more of an crazed button masher. And by buttons I mean beans. And by masher I mean counter. I'm a bean counter, okay? A F***ING ACCOUNT. God I hate my life.
Hit the jump for the video and a link to the stand-alone downloadable game.
Note: Per install instructions, "If it doesn't work on your computer at first, try right clicking theï»¿ application, clicking properties, and changing the compatibility to Windows XP Service Pack 3."

Thanks to Julie and Thatos, who like their turned-based video games like they like their Wii consoles: traded into Gamestop for something better.
