    Pokémon Main Series Title Coming to Switch (2019)

    So, around 11 days before the Let's Go trailer was released last year, Masuda tweeted a screenshot from Go that may have hinted towards the date of the game's annoucement. It was never confirmed by him, but appeared to end up being the case. That being said, he tweeted this yesterday: So do the numbers he didn't blur out mean something? Well, 226 could refer to a reveal around Pokémon Day, in time for the five day-long Q&A announced. Still, it's not exactly compelling on its own. Then this was mentioned on Resetera: This is interesting, because the titles "King and Queen" have often popped up in alleged leaks and rumours over the last year. If it turns out to be nothing, it's at least a pretty wild coincidence.
  2. I can't speak for its detractors, but I loved Wind Waker's art style the moment I saw it (and do to this day). This, on the other hand, will take some getting used to, because a plasticky look is often associated with low quality visuals. Link's face also resembles a generic Mii's, which doesn't exactly help. Wooden toys might have been a better way to go, honestly, but at least the designers tried something more interesting than they did with A Link Between Worlds.

      oh don't you worry

      it'll take up way more time than it needs to in the E3 direct

      (that or an April direct or something)

      True. I was hoping for a Summer release though, but that's likely off the table now. =/

    3. Zaysho


      Yeah, I was hoping for a July release. Maybe it'll get its own news direct in the next few months.

    4. DarkRula


      Dedicated Direct in the next few weeks. Released late April or May.

      Just don't treat that as a fact, though. I'm just confident that's how it's happening.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    I can only assume you're talking about Chris Sabat's Vegeta, but that is most definitely not British. It's just a slightly posh American accent.

    What's the beef with Cream the Rabbit?

    You're right about Marine and I wouldn't really pair her with Amy for that reason. I'd rather have her around than Cream is all. And maybe the following question isn't aimed at me, but - I'm not really bothered if she shows up in a game or not, since her role is unlikely to be significant. The OP asked for reasons people don't like her, so I shared some.

    What's the beef with Cream the Rabbit?

    I'm pretty sure Jim Sterling stated that during a time when the cast had become needlessly bloated. She was created expressly for the purpose of filling out Amy's team in Heroes and not much else. Using her as a go-to example of over-saturation made sense, since she never had anything unique to offer in the first place. We have a cutesy girl in Amy, flight abilities in Tails and so many Chao that Cheese is really nothing special. What stands out the most about her is just how bland and innocuous she is in a franchise full of characters with crazy superpowers and varied personality traits. As little as I care for Omega, the Babylon Rogues or Silver, they at least possess enough abilities, motivations and/or comedic value to lend them some baseline appeal. Sadly, she has none of those things. It's appropriate that her mother's name is Vanilla, honestly. I'd rather Marine replaced her, if Amy must have a sidekick.
  7. Videl is an interesting choice, but the others don't really excite me much. The only realistic inclusion that would pique my interest now is Kefla (or Caulifla w/ Kale), but it's hard to say how likely that is with only two slots left and plenty of Gokus still remaining.
  8. Some interesting tidbits from a Famitsu article have been translated: Most notably: - Decidueye was close to being the new Pokémon - Zelda's new design was inspired by A Link to the Past as well as A Link Between Worlds - Xenoblade 2 and Arms characters, as everybody guessed, came about too late in development to show up - The inclusion of Ridley, the Belmonts and K Rool was the result of the ballot

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I suppose one thing that makes sense about Zavok's inclusion is he seems to enjoy riding machines. That said, I would have gone for Orbot and Cubot or Chaos (as weird as he would be in a car) over him. At least it's not Infinite, I guess. Omochao has far more personality than Cream, though. The Chao in general are probably more popular than her and much of the cast, honestly. Either way, I'm pretty happy with his inclusion.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    With Iizuka saying he specifically wanted a racing game that could be played with kids, it sounds like SEGA have had more input in this one. That (and a lower budget) would lead to a more limited scope than the last game. Transformed, on the other hand, definitely looked to allow Sumo much more creative freedom.
  11. Do you really think the network gives enough of a toss about "only a few people" that they'll risk changing a show enjoyed by millions of others? Or maybe attitudes in general change as the world does and sometimes networks feel it's best to reflect that, lest they stagnate and fall from relevancy. Either way, let's not conjure up a cycle of outrage over a currently inoffensive kart racer. This ain't Youtube.
  12. My point is that it just obscures the real problems associated with the series, though, when the evidence points to mismanagement from SEGA. Many dumb decisions were either made by them or could have been nipped in the bud by them.
  13. I've said it before, but I don't think blaming Sonic Team makes much sense, since they're whoever SEGA has thrown together at the time. They've changed hands so many times by this point and the 3D games' spotty record has remained intact. SEGA is the common factor here and unless they're really committed to making a great Sonic game, it's just not going to happen. It's not hard to imagine that the conditions under which the developers work are likely pretty poor. As far as Sonic Adventure goes, I'd much rather have a spiritual successor at this point. Six characters and separate gameplay styles are just too much. Big at the vert least would have to be relegated to a mini-game or side character at best. Just take inspiration from the story and overall scope of the game and try to capture how the the good parts of the game felt rather than replicate the reality. I'd honestly just be happy to have another game with an SA-styled soundtrack after hearing that amazing Sand Road remix by Tee Lopes and Jun.

    Christmas 2018! (General Discussion/Christmas Haul)

    Thanks to Black Friday, I was able to receive a couple of extra games and DVDs on top of the other stuff. The only one I've had time to touch so far is Puyo Puyo Tetris, but hopefully I'll get try out some more today. Also: I did not expect the Amaterasu "noodle topper" to look so good in person. They even painted her butthole 😮
  15. It's not that I necessarily disagree with you, as I don't like the Rogues much either. I can just see why the designer or whoever in charge chose to go the way they did, even if I wouldn't have myself. If it had been up to me, I'd have preferred to build upon the other concept art: Something like that, anyway. If I had time, I'd tweak it more.
