  • I love when people have to hide behind likes when they can't prove me wrong.

    Take your own advice then because opinions can be right or wrong and are therefore objective.

    Yes, it is.

    Again, I never said they don't deserve to. Stop putting words in my mouth.

    I'm not. I'm forming my opinion AROUND facts.

    • "Demonizing people who enjoy those parts of the game"
    • "Liking bad games is not the issue.
      You can LIKE bad games freely."
    You'd think someone so eager to copy and paste what I say word for word would have noticed the other 5 to 10 times I repeatedly said that and said there is nothing wrong with that too but I guess not.

    Radio silence and people only proving me right. Good.
    YouTube randomly recommended me tournament videos of TemTem and I've been learning more about the game ever since.

    No random damage rolls. Status effects that are balanced. Buffs and debuffs that actually retain momentum, HP viewable in percentages, switching being even more of a commitment and risk and so many other good things.

    It's nothing but pure, accountable skill.

    Wouldn't it be simpler to have the HP be in numbers? Percentages seems more complicated when there's a simpler solution.

    Pokelego999 Pokelego999 Actually it wouldn't because you have so many different health and defense stats to take into account. Watching your attack do over 50.1% damage lets you know for a fact you will get a 2HKO as opposed to trying to calculate if you did from a big weird number on top of having to calculate the defense stats with the ingame formula. It's just an extra inconvenience that forces you take yourself out of the game to go to a calculator. Why do you think Pokemon Showdown uses percentages instead of numbers in the first place?

    Alright, I see now.
    I never actually thought I would enjoy playing a Metroidvania that much, as I don't even really care for Wario Land 3 compared to 4 but then I played Monster Sactuary and I'm almost burning myself out playing the game. It's just that good, man.
    One of the DUMBEST things I've seen a Pokemon fan say to defend SWSH was just "Yeah, Game Freak lied. So what? Why should I care?"

    Now the reason this is ESPECIALLY stupid is because this very same person had previously said "The lessons I've learned from the Pokemon anime helped me to be a better person."

    Say, anyone remember when Ash Ketchum and friends saved a baby Lugia from Team Rocket? Then Ash and pals beat an artificially rage-induced Houndour and Hitmontop, proving true power comes from trust and honesty between a Trainer and their Pokemon?

    You'd think a Pokemon fan would have taken such lessons to heart to value trust and honesty more than lying, but I guess not.
    I always find it kinda funny how people that spout such nonsense as "There's no such thing as a bad or wrong opinions! Let people have fun!!" are always the kind that are most angry with me having fun sharing my own opinions.
    You know how a common complaint modern Pokemon fans have is how Pokemon no longer does Event encounters with interesting stories for rare or Legendary monnsters? Nowadays, it's just codes to have it in a PC assuming you can make the time to make a trip to your local GameStop.

    Yo-Kai Watch has been doing precisely that during the eras Pokemon stopped doing that.

    Just sayin'.
    One thing I'd love to see in New Pokemon Snap is PokeDex-accurate evolutions like in the N64 game.

    Like maybe seeing a Bagon in the distance jump headfirst off a cliff then some seconds later, a Shelgon is there but then wanders off and finally a Salamence approaches the cliff, roars angrily at the cliffs below and flies off.

    Perhaps a quartet of Beldum with each pair joining together to make a Metang and then joining to make a Metagross.

    You know, the kind of consistency actual Pokemon games don't have.
    I've made a point recently to be more selective about games I buy that have a Nintendo logo on them.
    • I bought SWSH used for obvious reasons.
    • Too many complaints with Smash Ultimate so I bought it used and a friend bought the DLC stuff for me as a gift.
    • I bought Mystery Dungeon DX firsthand digitally cuz those games are good.
    • I bought Mario 3D All-Stars used also for obvious reasons.
    • I bought Pikmin 3 Deluxe physical firsthand cuz I'm convinced Nintendo would be stupid enough to think lack of Pikmin sales means people don't want Pikmin anymore.
    • Like I said earlier, Mario 3D World and Bowser's Fury is also getting bought used.
    • New Pokemon Snap is something I'm actually buying firsthand because I've waited so long for another and it's being developed by a company that clearly actually cares about visuals and animation

    I've heard people complaining about Snap for only having around 200 Pokemon.
    The original Snap didn't even have the original 151 entirely in it.

    I can live with a small monster roster so long as things like gameplay and overall quality can back it up.

    Snap 1 has great animation and makes the world of Pokemon look big, lively and interesting.

    SWSH doesn't deserve support cuz it does the exact opposite.
    This Pokemon 25th anniversary event or whatever they're doing better be good. It's not that I hate them teaming up with popular musicians like Katy Perry. They did a similar thing with the Pokemon 2000 anime movie but bear in mind that was from a time when they actually cared, the anime didn't stink as much and the games were far less susceptible to criticism of bad game design.
    I love how moronic Pokemon fans on Twitter act like 1,000+ regular players on TemTem's early access version is bad and proves the game is "dead".

    Game's not even out yet. Can't be dead if it has yet to be properly released and they're gonna be mad for no reason when that happens.

    I guarantee it.
    You know how so many times in the Pokemon anime, Trainers tell their Pokemon "good job" or "you deserve a rest" and the like to show they care about their monster buddies?

    In Yo-Kai Watch 4, you can give your monster pals a thumbs up mid-battle after getting a big attack off or something. It also has a practical purpose to it since it gives them a small EXP boost.

    Sometimes it's the smaller details that help you appreciate a game more.

    I miss Gen 7 when you could pet and take care of your Pokemon and they would turn their head in understanding during battle, even performing better cause of it.

    Then in Gen 8 they hop twice and that's it.

    That feature would have been alot better if it were actually balanced instead of being so game breaking. Keeping it and improving it certainly would have helped it to maybe do that but nope.
    I always love when a game actually fixes things that were broken or poorly designed in previous games.

    Sonic Generations making Special Stages and grinding actually good are one example.
    Janx_uwu

    I think "functioning" would be a better way to describe rail grinding.
    Yeah it works, but in comparison to the jump-between-three-lanes design, I'd rather play with the system in Adventure 2, jumping between different paths and off the rails entirely to skip parts of levels and obtain hidden goodies at my own leisure-even if it means I have to roll the dice on whether or not I die every time I jump from rail to rail.
    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    Why not have have the system of Adventure 2 WITH rail grinding that functions? Those things don't have to be mutually exclusive or sacrificed.
    Main series Yo-Kai Watch is like main series Shin Megami Tensei where you have humans using technology to summon demonic entities in a Japan full of war, death and division.

    The spinoff Y-Academy is like the Persona spinoff where a bunch of teens go through everyday school life but then evil monsters cause trouble so they have to suit up and use monster powers to secretly save the day.

    Every anime style game with monsters follows this same motif, which I find hilarious.
    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    Not every one of them. Dragon Quest Monsters does a more fantasy and dark lord thing. Also Nexomon. There's probably others, but this is still a common motif.
    I feel like part of why I'm convinced Pokemon fans don't play any other games was how so many people initially reacted to Sword and Shield and LGEP.

    So many people in awe over those games having overworld encounters on the Switch while I've been seeing that kind of thing for years already on the DS and 3DS.
    Champion of Hyrule
    Champion of Hyrule
    I’m sure most people were in awe not at the idea of overworld encounters, but by the fact that they appear in a series which has traditionally not used them.

    It’s like when people were surprised that Final Fantasy changed its battle system to action RPG. Obviously most fans know what an an action RPG is, so they were surprised at the fact that a traditionally turn based series would adopt them
    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    Fair enough.
    Pokelego999
    Pokelego999
    Yeah, it was quite surprising to see them after over 20 years of random encounters in grass.
    James would have easily beaten Ash Ketchum at Pokemon battles and as a Trainer if he'd have trained his Weezing to be more than an escape plan, his Victreebel (one of the stronger Pokemon of RBY) to stop trying to eat him and had been more patient with his Magikarp.
    One of the first things I wanna do when I get TemTem on the Switch and play it for the first time is get these dudes on my ingame team for my frontline pair.

    They'll hopefully help fill the "Ekans and Koffing actually winning things together" void in my heart that the Pokemon anime and games insist on leaving hollow.

    A great thing about Smash Flash 2 is how it has all these characters people actually wanted with Rayman, Krystal, Waluigi, Bandana Dee, Bomber Man and on the opposite end, you have only 1 Fire Emblem character in Marth. Really puts things into perspective.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    If only all of those characters were in Ultimate's roster. Krystal is my 2nd most wanted character, so I look forward to the day when she ever get's in the Smash roster for real. I feel like that day will never come because of her being absence from the Star Fox games for 14 years. I'm tired of Miyamoto remaking the original Star Fox over and over again with SNES, 2, 64, and Zero. It's time we get a actual new Star Fox game that isn't a remake of the Andross Wars.
    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    I've always held the position that Mario games would be better off without Miyamoto and from what my friends and what you've said, it seems that would be true with Zelda and Star Fox as well.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I wish they would turn Star Fox into Star Wars and have a mix of the on foot, Arwing, and tank missions having the best of all gameplay aspects of all of the Star Fox games. I would love for Star Fox to have all of that and deeper lore like it was Star Wars or something. But as long as Miyamoto is around, that's probably never going to happen.
    If Pokemon fans insist the story "doesn't matter", then why can't they make the story text dialogues and cutscenes skippable?

    well he would say stuff along the lines of if you don't like let's go p/e then you're not a true fan. think he had wolf in the name of the channel or something like that

    Oh dagnabbit, I know exactly whom you're talking about.

    Verlisify.

    Dude's a real loser. Keeps making fun of the Smogon format even though he's bad at the game, has to pay for subscribers to keep his channel relevant and wears a dog collar in public. Did myself a favor by choosing to not listen to anything he says years ago and go on with my life. He only remains relevant because he keeps starting fights with other PokeTubers.

    Best to assume anything the guy says are the words of a moron.
    Pokelego999
    Pokelego999
    I've heard not to listen to him as well, but it's agreed in the community that SMUSUM and BWBW2 are the best games story wise.
    Man, Super Smash Flash 2 has been so satisfying for me now that I can reliably play it. When I play Wario or Waluigi, I feel like I'm playing with all the best parts of them from their respective Brawl, PM, 4 and Ultimate counterparts. Like with Wario, you still have a dash attack that kills like in Ultimate, a shorthop autocancelling DAir like in Brawl, a proper kill throw like in 4, Smash attacks that are actually useful like in PM and more. The bad grab range on Wario is a little annoying but everything else, I'm having so much fun with.
    Super Smash Flash 2 has been an extremely positive experience for me not just with being able to alternate between Wario and Waluigi for practicing combos and playing Classic Mode and such but also in trying other fan desired characters.

    I'm a very casual Star Fox fan and by that I mean I'm just a memelord for Star Fox 64. Never really played any of the other games, so I never seriously considered Krystal.

    However, I'm starting to realize that the character really appeals to me alot both with how blue and white is a color scheme I adore, her feminine charms and I played alot of Sm4sh Fox, so I know my way around a space animal.
    As I continue my quest of watching 1 Pokemon anime episode each day, I continue to have my share of disappointments.

    I'm about halfway through the Orange Island League and it's just making me wish Arbok, Weezing, Victreebel, Lickitung and Meowth had a much better winning streak rather than just being the butt of a running joke.

    My favorite parts of this series so far has been when Arbok put up a tough underwater fight in Misty's mermaid ballet, Weezing sludging up a Vaporeon in the Eevee brothers episode, the tough wild Meowth that saved that kindergartener, Lickitung beating through Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Vulpix only for Psyduck's stupidity to be the biggest obstacle and Victreebel doing cool stuff with Sleep Powder and Razor Leaf like it actually does ingame when it's not trying to eat James.

    Yeah, Team Rocket I don't think properly won till the Gen 6/7 animes.
    I remember on Twitter some moron pointing out a minor visual glitch in a copy of Yo-Kai Watch 3 and said "Pokemon fans would have gone ballistic." Wouldn't be surprised if that same person would try to explain this nonsense away.
    I always find it funny people will pretend game quality is a myth only when it comes to Pokemon.
    I guess if bad games don't exist, why bother playing Pokemon Sword and Shield in the first place if it's just as good as such lovely titles as Jekyll and Hyde for NES, amirite?
    All my Christmas gift money from relatives is finally coming in.

    Just bought Jurassic World Evolution Complete Edition on Switch while it was on sale. Gonna use some of it to get a Japanese Eshop gift card so I can also buy Yo-Kai Watch Y-Academy and then keep the rest in reserve so I can buy TemTem on its Switch release day. Looking forward to it.
    I'm well into over 40 hours into Disc Creatures after having beaten the main story and am still trying to collect every monster.

    Lemme tell ya, Disc Creatures will chew you up and spit you out if you don't make use of good teambuilding.

    I want to beat this game soon since the dev for it has already announced the sequel Disc Creatures World and the spritework looks even better than the original.

    I'm surprised the game isn't mobile device compatible. It's practically perfect for that.
    People that tell you to "be grateful" for mediocre video games are shills.

    Video games are not a necessity in life like food or water that merit "being grateful" for.

    They are optional entertainment that can easily be pirated or purchased secondhand so the companies behind them make no money off them.

    The companies should be grateful for their customers because without them, they're nothing.
