  1. I don’t know what Game Mythra/Pyra are representing in Smash, but it sure ain’t Xenoblade 2.


    I’m not mad, just disappointed.


    I feel like everyone has a reason to be mad, but most are doing so for the wrong reasons. I’m not mad about another Anime Sword Fighter, I just think that the recent Smash Reveal is a complete misrepresentation of Xenoblade 2.

  2. I didn’t realize this existed. I just sort of... gave up? But it’s continuing, so I’m playing.
  3. The most recent Call of Duty game is more ambitious than Pokemon Sword and Shield.


    I can't believe I just said that. But its true.

      even i wouldnt go that far

  4. It's more like the Dream that happens is a memory of the past. But the choices that affect the story are basically because you are the one telling it, the way you saw everything. It's a product of your possibly inaccurate memory and your desire to see what you want to see.
  5. Pokémon created by Monolith Soft and directed by Tetsuya Takahashi....


    Now I’m in love with the Idea.

  6. Sometimes I don’t get whether Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is supposed to be funny or not.

      I would say that's part of the charm.

  7. I don't think that the Divergent Book series is good.


    I don't like any of the characters, and the Worldbuilding is really poorly thought out.


    I guess the first one was... semi decent, I guess? But Insurgent and Allegiant are horrifically boring.


    This series seemed like it was trying to ride the coattails of Hunger Games. But It failed really badly. Except for the fact that It sold. It sold very well.

      You are completely right to have that opinion, the premise was interesting enough for me to slog through the first book, but halfway through the mind-numbing second book I went through an epiphany, "Why am I still reading this?" I never picked up the serious after that.

      i liked the worldbuilding from the first two books, personally. i was looking forward to what the big reveal and the endgame would be, but fucking fuck.


      i guess it made sense in a worldbuilding sense but that still doesnt take away the fact that reading through 200-or-so pages felt like an absolute drag. ill give it credit for its ending which i definitely didnt expect, but other than that allegiant was painfully boring.


      still like the first two books tho.

    4. ShadeStrider


      Detergent, Insurance, Allergic seem like better book titles.

  8. In terms of general fictional works, Video Games are generally better for Worldbuilding than Books or Movies.


    The main reason for this is that Video Games can allow the player to explore their surroundings as they wish. A Book and a Movie are usually one straight line of story. As a result, in a Book or Movie, Worldbuilding often has to be integrated within the actual story, rather than through notes and books scattered about in a Video Game. In a video game, its really the player's choice whether they want to learn about the world or not.


    But even then, I do expect a Book or Movie to have proper worldbuilding, even if it can't be the most detailed due to having to balance that with an actual plot.

  9. So, Do I have to play Ace Attorney Investigations 1 in order to understand Ace Attorney Investigations 2?


    I hear that that particular game is lame. 1, i mean. 2 is actually considered great.

    1. AenaonDusky


      Although you don't really have to play AAI1 to understand AAI2, you might miss out on certain interconnected events, characters (and motives) and parts of lore. AAI1 is not that bad really. It does have this aura of "mediocrity" to it, but it still is a good game. Why not play both?

      Querbus 'I have extraterrainal rights' Alba was the most annoying part of AAI

      I always wanted to play as Miles Edgeworth. He's forever the coolest prosecutor in Ace Attorney. With the most character development.

  10. If Opening Week sales of Pokémon Sword and Shield exceed 300,000 in the U.S, I’ll write a Pokémon Reborn Fanfiction. Even though I often say fanfiction in a Negative Context.


    Screenshot this and post this on my profile when the time comes. I’ll hold true to my word. Just give me a two week grace period.



    Or not, because nobody cares anyway.


  11. The way I see it, the fact that Pokémon Rejuvenation won’t feature Dynamaxing is a cause for celebration.


    Thank you, Rejuv dev team, for electing to ignore it.

      True, but at end of the day Rejuvenation is Jan's game, and it will always be Jan, Zumi, and the rest of Dev squad final decisions implicate something into their game.

    3. ShadeStrider


      Honestly, the reason I say this is... childish, really.


      I don’t think Dynamaxing just doesn’t belong in Rejuvenation. I think that Dynamaxing doesn’t belong in Pokémon as a franchise. Any Fangame that elects to ignore it has my respect. 

      Making Pokémon Gigantic just goes against One of the points of a Pokémon, which is that the size of a Pokémon doesn’t really matter, and that Small Pokémon can fell large Pokémon. Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing completely go against that.


      Remember when Pikachu felled Roark’s Onix, and Turtwig proceeded to do the same against Rampardos? Those moments were awesome. 

      Instead, apparently in order to fight a Dynamaxed mon, we have to Dynamax our own. Turning Pokémon into a battle between colossi is just... boring. Utterly, Utterly boring. Unless you use a cheeky, situational strategy like FEAR. But those strategies will be just that: Situational.


      All it is is a three turn nuke that makes battles feel less epic with its existence.

      I think it's a graphic issue too and mostly a time-consuming development risk.


      If somebody were to implement Dynamixing in a fangame, I guess there would be giants sprites to do, like everyone of them. I don't think it will suit a fangame made in RPGmaker with his little screen. We could have tricks like the giant Steelix from.Reborn but good luck with all the others ^^


      Plus, despise what's been shown so far, we don't know whether we'll like it or not. I didn't like Z-moves back then in the game (too slow) but ended up liking them in Showdown (they're fast. It helps).


      So, let's assume it will be good gameplay-wise. Since it changes HP, it will work like Zygarde turning into Zygarde-Complete. A HP boost doesn't exist in Pokemon Essentials. So, you'll have to script every others pokemons.


      Remember how time-consuming implementing Gen7 was? That's the order of magnitude we're dealing with.


  12. Phoenix Wright will never be in Smash.



    The Miracle never happen.

  13. Happy Birthday 😄, i hope that you will have a great day 🙂🍰

  14. Pokemon[] MyTeam = new Pokemon[6]; for (Pokemon p: MyTeam) { System.out.println(p); } Notice how there are no values currently in the Array that I defined.
