Pokemon hasn't seen a rival that has motivated me in years.
Temtem's rival is a spoiled brat that I could not care for.
The team in this game I kinda couldn't care about and I don't think any team was as interesting as Team Plasma (btw I didn't play the gen 5 games so I wouldn't know). Team Rocket was kinda the best imo.
However, I know when I boot up a pokemon game, I am in for some kind of adventure.
In Temtem the professor just tells you to go to this place to learn more about temtem which then leads into another person telling her to go to her town which leads to another person telling you to go here which then leads into encountering the evil team. You do that now you can take on the dojo so you do that and you go to the next place you're told to go.
This doesn't change btw.
"Hey, lets design an RPG"
"Oh boy, what should we put in it?"
"We're going to stuff it with the things that people hate the most in RPGs!"
"Love it! Lets do it!"
oh my god
I hate Temtem trainers
not only do I have to battle to every single one
but I have to engage in conversation with every single one
and ontop of that, what I say doesn't matter, its not going to make the trainer not want to battle me
its literally wasting your time
Like atleast a trainer in Pokemon walks up to you and gets straight to the point
in this fucking game you have to talk to these people like why?
If you're going to give me the illusion of choice, atleast give me a dialogue option that allows me to skip the battles. That would have actually been really cool!
So, I'm going to describe what a toxic community is not like.
A toxic community is not welcoming towards new members.
A toxic community is does not remember that behind a username, there is a person
A toxic community can but may not always be anti-semetic, racist, use the R word a lot, use the F word a lot.
A toxic community may not be open to someone who has a different opinion as them
A toxic community will always have drama within it.
Like, shit you would expect from like gamer culture and the internet.
There's probably more, but on my homesite, I would call that a good community.
- They're welcoming towards new people and are probably the nicest people I have ever met on the internet.
- They try to remember that behind a username there is a person with feelings.
- They're mostly adults.
Like, I feel like I'm doing a bad job at describing it, but the best way to find out is to explore for yourself.
Just play league of legends with chat enabled, eventually you'll get flamed. Its bound to happen.
EDIT: Ok so there is a lot of complaining about the 3rd island on the temtem forums, and I'm in that thread. And I am seriously reading people say "I think Tucma's was really enjoyable and well-paced and unique story for these type of games. While they took the risk of using unpleasant gameplay." This is actually a thing that I just read. What fucking sick shit will people make up for calling that area "good gameplay?" What the fuck is wrong with people? Like, literally you can have an enjoyable, well-paced, and unique story, and have good gameplay. Your game isn't a fucking art piece. People have to play it.
