*Frankensprited/Sprite-edited characters should be treated with as much respect as scratch-sprited characters
*Justice League x TMNT, SHADES of Manhattan, Capcom Universe and so many other games deserve the same public spotlight as HDBZ
*Poking fun at creators or POTS characters isn't gonna make things change. In fact...
*If you don't like POTS characters so much, don't download them, easy n' simple. Shittin' on 'em and/or their creators doesn't make you a smart guy, it makes you a bully

The problem is, I don't know if I will return.

I no longer have the free time I had years ago. And to that must be added the fact that, after many years, I am realizing that spriting, as much as I may like, is proving to be a waste of time.

Don't say that.

What you did for this hobby is remarkable. The effort you (and all of the people you collaborated with) put into all your characters is something that deserves respect and appreciation.

Can't speak for anyone but myself, but I'm hella grateful for everyone you've done. Regardless of whether this is just a pause or truly the end of the line, you left a great legacy in your works and you should feel proud about it.

Beast is great in the sprites, I'm gonna go hunt down bugs if possible, but so far so good.

Yeah, I think I should've worded that better. Breakable TMs already exist in Sword and Shield, but as stated upwards, they're easy as hell to farm, so it's not a problem if you sacrifice an Earthquake TR because you can just get another one anyways.

I was talking about the old "you only get them once" TMs, the type that makes you plan carefully which pokémon are gonna give them to because otherwise, you will never be able to teach the move again.

We're like what 8? 9 generations in and other franchises on the hardware look 10x better while only Pokemon looks this lazy and lifeless and people will still say "Oh, its ok, Pokemon is not about graphics." Of course its not all about the graphics but this is a shot for shot remake, and we're like a decade from its initial release. Its like theres no sense of standards?  Nobody is being unfair to this company for how lazy and rushed their releases are. You literally can't be unfair to these executives who just check a couple boxes on forms to get this stuff out the door by Christmas, no matter how unfinished they look. At some point you look at how the other franchises are doing, see all the innovation, and then look at Pokemon and realize these guys are so rich they know whatever they pump out is going to sell because of diehard fans.

I was a huge Gen 4 fan, I had all 3 of Pearl, Diamond and Platinum; and Heartgold is probably my 2nd favorite game of the entire series. But that was a long time ago. The series has been on a downward trajectory for a long time now, and you can see that the people on top really don't care all that much as long as it makes them money. The fact a shot-for-shot remake, a game with all the infrastructure for its game loop already implemented, looks this shoddy in 2021 shows they do not care. I don't see an omen for bad things to come, the proof is already there.

I've... got lotsa things to say.

Firstly, you're still treating these games as if they're made by the same company, they're not. Yes, TPC is involved, they are in all games, but just because they are doesn't mean they're all abiding to the same standards, otherwise, Pokkén and Snap 2, both of which are developed by Namco, wouldn't be as nice looking as they do.

Second, and I should've said this before, but just because they're making money doesn't mean they stand up to well... the highest standards of quality. As sad as it is to say, many of these high-grossing franchises out there aren't exactly synonym with "top quality." Like seriously, who actually expects jack shit from fucking Hello Kitty or Barbie? Not all recent Mario games are grand prize winners, see the case of the newest Mario Tennis; not all MCU movies are at the same quality as the Russo brothers' work, and I could ramble all day about Dragon Ball Super ranging mediocre to terrible as far as quality is concerned.

Now, when it comes to the problems with the higher ups, yeah I agree, there's definitely a problem with them. It's been there since around Gen 4 or so. Biggest problem is these people don't have confidence in their work anymore. Masuda and Ishihara especially, one is so traumatized with cell phones to the point he thinks he can't deliver, while the other expected the Nintendo Switch to fail because of that as well. I definitely believe new people should get take their places.

However, the graphics? Is that the worst thing they've ever done? No. I think there are far more concerning things than just how a game looks. Pokémon's main attraction has always been catching, trading and battling magical creatures. It's always been like that. If the devs were to say that you can only catch the original DP dex and not anything else, that would be worth getting worked up at them; if they said you can't transfer your pokémon to Home or to Sword and Shield, it'd definitely be the same; heck, if they stated that one use TMs and the shitty HMs from past games are returning, that'd be worth filling YT with tons of critique videos.

That's all I'm saying, graphics aren't the most concerning thing out there.

I've been very critical about the franchise in general, especially storytelling. I think the games, anime, manga and online series all suck when it comes to making stories. I think the franchise needs new blood and people who care. However, just like I think there are terrible things running inside, I also believe they're running outisde. Remember when people praised a chinese bootleg for supposedly having better graphics than the Switch games until it turned out their animations were stolen? That took a lot of their credibility, and there wasn't any way I'd still be supporting movements like Dexit with people like them.

It not unfair in the slightest. Regardless of your preferences, the lighting and post processing, even the texture quality is leagues better than a remake of one of the highest grossing franchises by one of the most successful game developers. Its mediocrity. If they wanted to achieve the faithfulness they might as well have gone fully sprited rather than this rough mobile game quality stuff.

It's unfair when:
1.- Pokémon biggest source of outcome is merchandise, not the games themselves.
2.- It's not being developed by GF but by another studio.
3.- Legends Arceus (GF's game) looks miles better, so it's not like equals are being compared.

There are legitimate arguments against the games' graphics, saying it's because the games come from a high-grossing franchise isn't one of them. And as a longtime Pokémon fan, I just have to admit the games have never been highly regarded for graphics, not even in the first generations with their fugly sprites (looking at you, Venomoth, Nidorina, Mew), and by the GBA, you could easily find games with better looks like Metroid Fusion, the Sonic Advance series or TWEWY.

Personally, I don't think the graphics are pretty, in fact, I think they look worse than SwSh, but they're not ugly either, they're average. And since GF is in charge of a game with better graphics, I'm not gonna take this as an omen of bad things to come.

One o' these games better have a catchable Darkrai/Shaymin event. That's all I'm asking for, and for patches to program the less than two hundred creatures into SS.

FIGHTING EX LAYER -ANOTHER DASH- for Switch
- will be released in 2021
- more info on 4/1
- different title from FIGHTING EX LAYER
- netcode is different from FIGHTING EX LAYER
- netcode is "delay based backstep interrupt" (will update to rollback netcode after released)
I understand the Switch has attracted several fighting games, more than any other Nintendo console I'd say, but damn, did I not expect to see this title coming.

I would love to have Chunners if only because then we could have some more Street Fighter songs that aren't from 2. That was probably one of the biggest letdowns from vanilla Ultimate, and now they have a chance to fix that.

Next to other character ideas out there, I can take Mythra and Pyra. I know there was a crowd begging for another Xenoblade character and that's pretty good as is.
Also, it's very funny to think how people were excited about ARMs and Xenoblade 2 being back on the menu when the pass first started, thinking they'd get Spring Man and Rex, just for other characters to appear in their places.

Ah, that old list. I'm rather conflicted about it. On one hand, it's truly possible that whoever posted that list made sure to snatch as many names as possible before, but on the other, would anyone fishing names go as far as looking into characters like Arthur while also omitting more popular guys like Dante? That's the part where things become more headscratching.

But now that the list was brought up, I wanna share some rumours. It's always good to have some food for thought before the next reveal.

For all intents and purposes, Nintendo would've already disclosed if we weren't getting a character by now if that were the case, not to mention that spirit events are always announced via Twitter, never through directs. That said, they can always dance around that by putting the next character's model from behind, or by just doing the same shit as ARMs (not that I want either of those things to happen). I'd be more concerned about what happens after the direct. Tens months have more than enough room for a pair of info droughts, and it already happened three times: once after Joker, then another after Byleth and a third one with Min Min.

It's been 2 months since Seph announcement.

Actually it does seem pretty quick...

It looks pretty quick because of the continuous droughts between characters, not really helped by the longer deadline. This picture is very outdated, but it still illustrates the point, well, the point before Sephiroth was announced that is:

It feels like a real miracle that characters are now announced with a better pace, but I still dread the idea of another drought, especially when the deadline still has a solid ten months left.

I so do not know what to take off of this reveal. I may need to look back at the Hero team trailers, but I so do not recall teams having more than one theme, and frankly, this gives me too many ideas, none of 'em I'm a subcriber towards:
1.- Iori is truly teaming up with Joe (why?)
2.- Iori's a standalone character (think of a 97/99/2000 situation)
3.- Both characters are just part of different teams

You know, I remember myself and some other people talking about the old Seven Square Characters rumour from last year, and recall well that one of the more likely candidates would definitely be Sephiroth due to his pedrigree as a character. Didn't think I'd be in an odd way, right about that.

YOOO! To think that my sorry ass was downright confused at Elle's ending because of her story with Specialist ending off-screen. Glad to know it actually meant something.

Couldn't get to say this when you announced Illian as CvTW's boss, but I'm glad you've got the drive to work in these new guys. And for the matter being, I hope you don't get burned out on them like it happened with that game.

As for the characters themselves, I'd say my favourite is Vidael with those cool razor kicks. Dunno if you plan to do any modifications to Elle and Tristan, but I'm certainly intrigued if the new system may mean something for them.

Alright, siding on the "bad guys" here, but I genuinely don't see any reason as to why Nintendo should allow an online Melee tournament at all. Some folks off-site compare the recent Marvel 3 tournament by Max to this, but thing is, as far as Capcom and Marvel are concerned, UMvC3 can be played in PCs with online, regardless of Parsec, that's a lot more legality for it than playing a game that explicitly doesn't have online services on a system it wasn't made for. And let's be honest for a second: does anyone here really believe that all the Melee pros went through the hassle of ripping GameCube disk ISOs into a PC just for the sake of keeping things legal? It's something so hard to believe that it may as well be considered nonsense. These people were most likely working with ROMs downloaded from only God knows where, and just as the organizers and suits from Nintendo wouldn't go through every single participant just to check their legality, the players themselves would've not agreed to show they're innocent either (they would've already done so to protest if that were the case).

If Capcom found out that some dude decided to organize an online Third Strike tournament through FightCade instead of using the OE or the 30th Anniversary edition, they'd take it down as well.

Personally, I don't get why people are so shocked about this. With no chances to do a normal tournament with people in a building and Gamecubes not having such a thing as online, this should've been seen coming miles away. Sad for Melee pros, but they were playing with fire in this situation.

I have quite a lot of gripes with Nintendo as far as this year is concerned: their incompetence when it came to get around the pandemic, the fact that Sakurai and his team hadn't finished talks with all third parties by the time Corona hit Japan when every other dev would've sorted that shit out before even starting their season passes, limited-time releases, their idiotic comments on Joy Con drifting (which I hope it bites them in the ass at the court), the whole "we can't use Mario characters from other games for our next new titles." It's not 2015-shitty from them, but it certainly comes close. However, this time they weren't in the wrong here.

Alright, time I ask, how legal is it to sell modified controllers? Because afaik, those are subject to the same legal issues as selling modified consoles. Nintendo would've done that regardless of what they were based on.

EDIT: Okay, looked at a video linked to in the twitter post, it's a pretty damn garbage move from Nintendo to take down distribution of controls aimed at charity and another sin going to them for what little's left of this shitty year.

I'll be sincere, those Capcom leaks made me rise my eyebrows a couple of times. I can definitely see a Beat 'Em Up coming back, but two? Hard to believe, especially Commando. Power Stone isn't a hard thing to imagine, since Itsuno talked about wanting to do a new entry.

Now, there were a lot more details, some of them I'm sure will bite them in the ass big time. MH Rise on PC and that SF6 roadmap certainly haven't gotten a positive reaction, and I'm pretty sure Capcom isn't gonna try to do or say something about either, they'll probably let the Switch version of Rise die and won't try to salvage whatever conceptions people will have about SF6 once they finally announce it.

In better news, after an eternity filled with re-releases and shitty cliffhangers, TWEWY 2 is finally a thing!

I'm sad the game isn't titled The World Ends With You Too because damn that could've been a great pun, but there's clearly more important things to wonder. This new cast gives me the impression that this sequel takes place several years into the future. None of them may be direct children of the original cast, but they still resemble them in one way or another.
