  1. That cover is beautiful. I'm curious who the artist is because if it's someone familiar, for once I can't place it...
  2. This made me realize they missed an opportunity to have team up triple battles way back when that battle format was introduced in BW1. Like, you literally have two friends that travel with you throughout the game...
  3. Anyone else here a fan of Sonic

      A shady corporation is paying me to expose Sonic fans. Makes me feel dirty but as they say, it's a livin'.

      Not dealing with the fanbase means I can tolerate the series better, so yea.

  4. Literally how? Yeah, there can only be one protagonist ever who builds things. This one is just nonsense I'm pretty sure. Like, don't get me wrong. I don't care about someone not really caring about the FF or whatever, that's fine and I think as far as gameplay goes the only one I could imagine bringing something super unique to the table is Bunnie (which would be awesome). But if we're just talking how the characters would fit in the universe or narrative... '06 is '06, I know, but that had a kingdom with a princess! Those can exist! Lost World established something akin to roboticization (to the point where the Archie reboot portrayed what happened to Bunnie similarly IIRC). Again, Tails is not the only person who can build things, if anything I wouldn't mind if a character like Rotor too up that role so Tails could maybe do other things too (lol). Nicole is maybe the only thing we haven't really seen before in the games as far as I can recall, but an A.I. that achieves sentience is hardly a huge stretch for a series as weird as this. I never understood arguing from that angle is all.
  5. Geno is usually among the highest results in polls isn't he? I think people underestimate his popularity. And with him already being referenced in Smash here and there, I'm sure they're well aware there's a lot of people asking for him, it's probably just a matter of time whether he's one of the final DLC fighters or shows up in the next game (whenever that happens).
  6. It depends on what the loss is. More to the point I don't think anyone is saying it has to be something completely irreversible, but often with ongoing storylines in this franchise (including the latter...maybe 25% or so of Archie's run) it's something where either 1) the consequences don't actually matter much in the long run or 2) it's fixed not long after. Which of course is perfectly fine in some cases, but variety is good, yeah? Some rare examples from the games: Sonic and friends win in the end in Sonic Adventure 1, but Station Square is of course still in ruins. This never really comes up again, with the next game mentioning the city in such a way that doesn't even make much sense at pure face value. Similarly SA2 ends with Shadow ambiguously dying, but he comes back in literally the very next 3D game (made worse by how nonchalant Heroes was about it, up until sort of trying to set up a mystery at the end). Now all that said, as far as the games are concerned, I don't mind that things wrap up nicely all the time. They're clearly designed to be episodic, and I'd honestly say it works fine! I do really wish they'd try to have ongoing character arcs, but I could rant about that all day. Alternate media stuff, this book included, generally have the opposite structure, which means there's more room for the kind of thing people are asking for here.
  7. I honestly think the visuals in Sword and Shield are pretty good...outside of the Wild Area.

    1. Perkilator

      Perkilator

      Really? Minus some questionable looking trees, I think the Wild Areas look great!

    2. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      You don't love flat, empty and soulless landscapes? =p

      Heh. Yeah they looked pretty bad currently.

    3. Celestia

      Celestia

      @PerkilatorFwiw it is mostly the trees, and some other structures, that bother me, but yeah.

      And yeah the presumably more specifically constructed routes (and cities) aren't flat or empty at all. It really is like going from the average RPG right into Everything Wrong With Open World Design.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      They look ok... thought that’s with me lowering my expectations for a number of things.

      I shouldn’t have to seeing how this is a multi-billion dollar franchise but, hey, this is just where we are atm I guess.

      Those in-battle animations are still shit tho

    5. Cayenne

      They aren't very good for a console JRPG from 2019 IMO, but, to be fair, giving a good look at Game Freak's portifolio, I don't expect big 3D projects from them. Every 3D Pokémon game before X/Y was made by different companies and most of their original titles are in 2D or just very simple games.

      By the looks of it, Town will be their first big 3D JRPG.

    6. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

       

      @Strickerx5 Just look at them dem HIGH quality animations which they clearly put tons of dough & effort into! ;3

    7. Celestia

      Celestia

      I mean yeah my expectations were lower because they've been a handheld dev this entire time, lol.

      They've also said outright that they're focusing more on Town, which is an...interesting choice? On one hand I'm at least glad they aren't being forced to work on solely Pokemon forever and always ala Sonic Team or whatever, but...

      @Lord-DreamerzThat’s one of the new starts too... just, how

      Oh wow people remembered Town? It was revealed last September outta nowhere to little fanfare so I expected many to forget. 

      Look how visually appealing this looks. And this is just the reveal trailer. 

       

    10. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      @TCB Honestly I never got how Town visually looks great to some people. It is ok I guess... But nothing special far as I can tell. And I really don't think the human characters look good hardly at all personally.

    11. TCB

      TCB

      Each their own. On its own yeah I can see what you mean, but just comparing it to the other Game Freak RPG you can see some differences can you?

    12. Ferno

      Ferno

      they gotta partner up with Monolithsoft for Gen 9 once work on BotW 2 is done imo

    13. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I'm comparing it to other cel-shaded games like OG "Zelda the Wind Waker" or "Ni No Kuni 2" and those looked FAR better to me. I am not aware of Gamefreak's other non-Pokemon projects really.

      @TCB

    14. TCB

      TCB

      They rarely ever dipped out of the Pokemon pool, so whenever they make something else outside of their bread and butter like Town...compared to SwSh the former is far more visually appealing. 

    15. Ferno

      Ferno

      *sees people on youtube bashing the Town trailer in the comments saying "oh so this boring non-pokemon garbage is where the Gamefreak resources for Gen 8 went?"*

      god forbid they do new and different things to prevent burnout amirite

      To be honest I'm not bothered at all about the battle animations? Like, if that's what Masuda was referring to (which I highly doubt--my guess is that it's going to tie in to whatever the Amie / Refresh equivalent is this time around), in the first place I think that's a weird reason to cut Pokemon out of this specific game. I don't expect or even want them, at least with the time they get, to go through every mon and give them multiple attacking animations to account for every kind of move, even with a reduced roster. That'd be cool, but again I personally can't even wrap my head around that being a priority at all for a game that has like hundreds of mons.

      Admittedly nowadays I always turn off the animations anyway, lol. Maybe I'd feel different playing a new one for the first time tho'.

    17. TCB

      TCB

      Can we at least not wash out the Pokemon colors I want my vibrant yellow electric rat in battle 

  8. Though mainline Mario has improved on the fun cutscene animation front a lot starting with 3D World, the LM games are still.....next level.
  9. I wonder if that encounter with King Boo seen in the trailer is surprisingly early in the game, since it'd be very strange to show off the final boss fight in like, the second trailer.
  10. I assume the logic at the time was that while it was certainly a sequel, it had a very different structure to the original game, so localization felt it wouldn't be "accurate" to call it LM2. Which was a reasonable judgment I think based on how people seemed to feel about the game. Of course, that just makes it a little weird that 3 is called, well, 3. Also since I don't see it mentioned outright so far in this topic, it's been confirmed that the mission structure is gone. There's other cool tidbits in the preview too!
  11. Yeah it's unfortunate, but Pokemon being a multimedia franchise makes it unlikely they'd delay a main series game, I didn't think about this until earlier but it'd probably be more difficult than you'd think for them to even plan for a break in the future. It'd be doable of course but it seems like TPC isn't particularly interested, which sucks for...uh, literally everyone, including GF lol.
  12. This doesn't even effect me much since I've always just stuck with what each individual game gives you, but I'm definitely concerned on principle. On one hand the trading restriction was realistically going to happen eventually, especially given the series' annual release schedule. On the other hand, the yearly release schedule sucks anyway. I actually can see them just adding all the missing 'mons post-release but I'm not sure if it actually had to come to that? Ehhh.

      Wait, who’s Erdrick and what game is he from?

      Why did they replace a Dragon Ball character with a Dragon Ball character?

  14. There were the echidnas in the flashbacks in SA1. Chronicles also has echidnas, and in the present day too! Can't think of anything in Advance 2, unless Vanilla counts.
  15. The mid 2000s era, particularly stuff like those small moments in Unleashed/Black Knight, do kind of feel like they were rethinking their stance on Sonic and romance to some extent. It also makes sense with how Sonic's characterization had shifted during that era, he was a lot more chill (as was Amy later on). Now I can't say I mind how that didn't stick, but it is kind of interesting to look back on.
