Happy Birthday!

I am surprised that there are many people closer to my age. I was under the impression that many of the older creators here are middle aged at the least...

Meanwhile, members of the National Dex movement have started a campaign to demand that Junichi Masuda be fired over all of this.

While another member took to Twitter to accuse him of rape.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable and rational reaction to your make-believe animal checklist not being as long as you would have preferred.

Okay, I confess that I was actually surprised that the angry fans went there. I understand that the fanbase was pretty crazy even before all of this, but was under the impression that there are a few restraining bolts that is keeping the insanity in check. Now, I think those bolts are long gone.

The angry fans needs to keep their more extreme insanity in check, because actions like these are never okay and it might undermine them in the long run. In fact, it would be beneficial if everyone take some time off from this Pokemon outrage before it consumes their very minds, because I have a feeling that the rage is consuming their sanity and self-control.

I was not in favor of the bad decisions that Game Freak made for this game, just as I am not in favor of the way she is behaving, however, some actions are totally depreciable, with no need to be made.

Note: Despite everything, I believe that this whole situation serves to show to Game Freak that the fanbase is not accepting anything more than they do, so I hope that from now on we can see things that really surprise. This is the first franchise game I'm not excited about playing.

Of course the current climate influences, but I did not see anything that was really attractive, because in one way or another, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are still the most complete versions, because in them you can have all Pokémon, Mega-Evolutions , Z-Moves among several other features that sustain the competitive environment.

I do think that a hostile and toxic fanbase (or even sections of said fanbase) can ruin or put a wet blanket on the enjoyment of any hobby or entertainment. I saw it many times and not just in Pokemon. I guess another reason why I am so calm about all of this is because I have divorced myself from the Pokemon fandom a long time ago for their toxic metagaming (Smogon Univeristy comes to mind), so I am very insulated from the whims and emotions of the greater Pokemon fandom. I prefer to enjoy things at my own pace.

One final note, I believe that even if Game Freak would like to delay Pokemon Sword/Shield's release, Nintendo would not allow it. Why? Because I am guessing that Nintendo needs to have a BIG system seller for the upcoming holiday season at the end of the year. Look at the list and tell me what other big name Switch game is getting released around November or December other than Pokemon.

I skimmed the list and there is not really a big first party game being released at that period of time other than Pokemon. So, unless Nintendo wants to sit this holiday season out (as if), Pokemon is getting released on time, and if it means not including a bunch of old features that no one really uses or eliminating a few Pokemon no one really likes (all relative of course), so be it.

The unfortunate price of business, I guess.

You know, if you travel back in time ten years ago and tell the past me that a Pokemon game will be this controversial, I would have laughed it off and called you a weirdo in response.

Seriously though, I would never expected this much complaints and controversy to arise out of a Pokemon game before. I guess eliminating the National Dex must have done something to flip a switch.

I am still in the wait and see mode and staying out of the controversy, although I do think that the act of using a huge wedding-cake Pokemon to defeat a huge dragon-type Pokemon like Garchomp is a funny enough thought that I'll probably do it to defeat other people online. Heck, who knows? Maybe I will become Pokemon World Champion with it and Pikachu on my team.

Although the cynical side of me want to toss in two cents about this entire controversy: I am willing to guess that many of the complainers online, and especially Youtube, are rage-baiting hypocrites and lairs in that they are probably going to get Pokemon Sword and Shield anyway despite the ranting and complaining that they done. While they are free to complain and buy the game at the same time, don't expect me to take them seriously at all unless they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

I want to ask the MFG a question regarding Soul Calibur VI:

I have heard a lot of discussion on other forums and websites like Reddit on why the game is not as popular as it should be in comparison to Tekken for example, from roster size to single-player and multiplayer experiences. However, I want to see what you all have to say about the subject. So the question I want to ask you all is this:

Do you think Soul Calibur is unpopular in comparison to other Fighting Games? And explain why or why not?

Just as I was getting used to the peace and quiet, someone have to take a match to this tank of gas and make everything lit up again.

Regardless, I still am in the wait and see mode in regards to this entire charade. As for my response to the entire ordeal about some of the Pokemon getting the cut, it is a solid meh. Meh, as in I, seemingly enough, am quite neutral about this. I am not exactly too thrilled nor I am very outraged. I'm just calm.

Then again, it should be obvious who is my favorite Pokemon is and maybe it is a contributing factor on why I am very calm...

i was actually talking about the laptop fan... it just got fucked up really good thanks to my little cousin running over my room and accidentally dropping my laptop to the floor, and guess what? it was not the keyboard got rekt. but the fucking FAN. i mean laptop fan.
Dropping electronics like that almost always will do a number on the device, and I doubt the warranty will cover the damage if it's fall damage.

You could try to send in the laptop in for repairs, but I have no clue if they are willing to fix it. I think that you might be better off getting another laptop or computer in that case, and make sure that you are being much more careful with it this time around. And make sure everyone else knows about not being too reckless near other electronics as well...

Just a thought as I sit in front of the computer just now:

Since the Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are both on a system that can receive large patches fairly easily, what is the likelihood that future updates to the game will include new Pokemon that wasn't in already?

Maybe have a Safari Zone and have the new Pokemon dumped in there, claiming to be imports from a far-away region...

Look, I'm just merely offering a suggestion on why the next Pokemon games have a shortened roster than before. I could be completely wrong, or I could be completely right. We won't know that until much later, if we ever get that reason. So we are all speculating at this point in time.

Right now, I'm in the wait and see mode for this new information about the limited list of Pokemon. It could either be a disaster like people here and everywhere else has discribed, or it could be a huge nothing burger and we all had gotten worked up for nothing. I refuse to be a part of this potentially-unjustified group panic attack, so I'm not going to comment on this particular subject until more information has been given.

I'm willing to bet that, with the list of Pokemon becoming so large by now, that they probably don't have enough time nor resources to animate all 800+ Pokemon
All old Pokémon are using the same model and animations, in fact, they've been doing so ever since X/Y, so you lost your bet, that couldn't be the issue.
How would you know that the models are the same? For all we know, they could have been using upgraded models that looks like the old ones but are technically better under the hood.

My take on the issue of Pokemon being left out for the game? I'm willing to bet that, with the list of Pokemon becoming so large by now, that they probably don't have enough time nor resources to animate all 800+ Pokemon and develop the game at the same time to a reasonable degree. And, to be honest, I am surprised that they're waiting this long to trim the fat because I do think that the list is getting real big. I know people are going to be upset at this decision, but I want to know how many people are going to miss those dime a dozen fillers whose only role is to provide an endless supply of Pokemon to beat up for exp. and to fill up the belts of the grunts of whatever evil gang we need to stop this time.

Besides, I'm thinking that all the Pokemon will be in by the time the third game and whatever remakes are released.

Microsoft

The Good:
-Battletoads looks great. You know what it reminds me of? The new Ducktales cartoon. I'm kind of hoping it's not as tough. I know the series has a history of being ball busting in terms of difficulty.


I don't know. The reaction to that trailer says otherwise, with more haters than lovers.

Wooloo must be protected.


It is impressive that the Internet can lewd everything. It is also impressive that they can do it within the hour of revealing the Pokemon.

Seriously, how in the world can they draw that fast?!

Always happy to see new DLC drop and always happy to see Banjo-Kazooie finally making it to the roster. If there is a character who deserves a spot, it will be those two, especially given the extensive history Rare had with Nintendo in the past.

Now that I have watched the Direct, here is my response:

 :flipout: :woeh::flipout: :woeh::flipout: :woeh:

I agree with everyone, this is gotta be the best direct we had in a while. So many new games, some of which I want. 2 more DLC fighters for Smash, one of which I want to get in, and a new Zelda game on the way!

Shame we don't have anything about SMT V, but nothing's perfect.

I know that, but I want to know the approximate amount they are typically offering. Maybe I'll do some back of the napkin math to satisfy my curiosity.

I mean I don't think the exact dollar figures have been publicized, but it's a known fact that they are ponying up a shitload of cash to devs to make games Epic Store exclusive.

Hope is worth it for the devs because their reputation will be ruined after this. And hopefully it is worth it for Epic since their reputation will be ruined as well.
