  2. Might actually get SwSh now though I'm not too enthused my point of entry for this gen will be 90-freakin-dollars if I pick it up

    1. Strickerx5


      And you’re still down around 300 mons.

    2. Zaysho


      Yeah... tbh after this GF isn't going to have any excuse for the next major game not being compatible with everything

  3. Dragon Quest XI spoilers:


    "Man, I'm glad I racked up all those tokens in the Octagonia casino, now I just need to beat the boss and I can get Baumren's Bell"

    -defeats boss-

    DQXI: "Oh, those tokens were fake we'll be taking them back now."


    I take back any good things I've said, this game is terrible.

    1. Zaysho


      I hit the jackpot and got enough tokens for Baumren's Bell. All is right now.

  4. Dragon Quest is good except for the times it makes me fight sabrecats

  5. This is a true Christmas classic


  6. Sabi: "b-but muh source"

  7. I don't understand why Game Freak even introduced Hyper Training in Gen VII if they were going to make getting the items you need to do it such a pain in the ass to obtain.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Remember they removed Super Training, the easiest and most reliable way to EV train your Pokemon, for this

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Reach level 100 and grind out BP in facilities where you kind of need perfect IV, EV trained Pokémon succeed. It's like saying that you're not allowed to Hyper Train your Pokémon until your Pokémon already have perfect IVs, which is all Hyper Training does. The same goes for the nature mints; you can't get them until the Battle Tower and each costs a bomb of BP.

      The IV system in Pokémon is inherently flawed. EVs and natures might be obscure grind-fests devoid of any semblance of fun, but at least there's a workable system to them that allows people to tune their Pokémon's stats with ups and downs. For example, if you want to max out you attack stat, you'll be left with fewer EVs to use on other stats. It's pretty balanced because you have to consider the EV spread within a finite range. But with IVs there's no consequence. The best Pokémon will always have max IVs. There's no negative side to having max IVs like there is with max EVs. Grind out Hyper Training/breeding/rare encounters to get Max IVs or just don't bother with competitive play.

    3. Zaysho


      @Crow the BOOLET I wasn't much of a fan of Super Training in XY, personally. Hordes were more efficient and quick for what's already a pretty braindead system to making your Pokémon better. The EV multiplier in SOS battles in Gen VII, and the more passive (albeit slow) PokéPelago are also preferable to me. I don't really have much of an issue with that as I do as improving your IVs, which Gen VII has tools for (bottle caps), but getting them is tedious and you have other busywork to do to be able to get there (being level 100).

      I'm mostly annoyed because I want to try out the team I built in the battle tree and I don't see a reason to keep breeding and grinding away at them anymore when I already like what I have and they just need minor adjustments.

      @Blue Blood Ah. Good to see for all their "quality of life" improvements in SwSh they still find ways of building better Pokémon to take on their own challenge mode a complete fucking chore.

  8. cramorantgorging.png

    I'm skipping SwSh, but if Cramorant is barred from future game dexes I am done with the series.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Pikachu is really becoming the one thing that Pokemon eat


      Can't catch a break huh?

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      It’s the star of the whole series. It can take it.

  9. Does the music of Dragon Quest XI get better because while I enjoy the game, the soundtrack is driving me fucking insane

    1. tailsBOOM!


      If you're playing on Switch, are you using orchestral or MIDI?  Also there's a fre ed download for some DLC  that includes the VIII heroes outfit as well as the ability to turn on the DQ VIII OST.

    2. Zaysho


      Yeah, I'm playing on Switch and I do have it set to orchestral, as well as using the DQVIII theme, but, to be honest, I just find the soundtrack to be repetitive and boring. I'm pretty sure other DQ soundtracks are similar but I don't remember V's or VIII's annoying me to the degree XI's does.

    3. tailsBOOM!


      Ah OK.  I've taken a break for a bit, but this may be a spoiler if it's true, but in the third act 


      You apparently get access to the OST for III

  11. If you or someone you know has been hurt as a result of jumping from Celestia's status you may be entitled to compensation.

      Archie!Omega was best Omega.

      “Fuck this thing in particular.”

  14. Why does Sega insist on ignoring "Throw It All Away"

    1. Zaysho


      Yeah, I know there's a sample in the hub, but it'd fit with the SA2 setting to have the actual theme during the fight


      : |

    2. Ferno


      just like they keep ignoring SA1's version of It Doesn't Matter

      we can't have nice things

    3. Zaysho


      I guess I have to accept Black Knight as a send-off to all Adventure music

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Its because Sega threw it all away!

      Yes thank you! I'll be here all week!

    5. Zaysho
    6. Bobnik


      They didn't throw it away (heh) completely. Forces had that one Episode Shadow cutscene where you can hear the guitar riff. 

      And by "that one" I mean that one. 

    7. Guy Strong

      Throw It All Away is literally Shadow's best and only theme and I have no idea why they don't insist on using it to represent him more.

    8. Red


      Throw It All Away is the superior Shadow theme. I don't even understand their obsession with All Hail Shadow.

    9. JezMM


      I feel the main reason here is "Jun Senoue was in charge of the music for Generations" - he often seems to show bias towards re-using songs he composed - I was actually genuinely shocked that TSR used Reach for the Stars for Sonic's power-up theme.

      ALTHOUGH to be fair maybe I'm projecting a little - Black Knight was very much a Jun music game but Throw It All Away appeared there, and of course, the hub world music.  Tbh ignoring bias, I assumed they chose All Hail Shadow just to give a little nod towards Shadow the Hedgehog (the game) in Generations. Naturally using the Crush 40 version was probably more straightforward than the Magna-Fi one.

  15. I always wondered whose hand that could be on this Sonic Universe cover...


    Then I realized only one character has visible seams on their gloves


    I guess Eggman still cares about his other horrible son, Omega, and just wants him to be happy.

    1. JosepHenry


      Eggman cared about Gamma enough to makes thousands of him in SA2 and Battle in homage, even though he was the biggest traitor lol


      (Also I find funny how this issue Spark of Life has the shipping thing, and it was also when Ian and his wife started to plan romance with Sally and Nicole lmao)

      Come on Wandavision  bring on a good story to explain that wanda always had the mutant gene. It's just that no one knew about it. And allude to Magneto

      A animation of Shadow singing “If You’re Happy and You Know It” with a cat.

      Your Vest Friend

      He's not even allowed to have the Dark Chao that was with him on some wallpapers because of how they want his characterisation to be, why would they allow a cat.

      After the Sora4Smash fad, people started making Pit is Sora jokes

    6. Zaysho


      Why would people trash Pit like that

    7. Polkadi~☆


      What seems to be the issue?

    8. Zaysho


      @Polkadi~☆ It's just one of these fun little "what do you want ported" type of things that crop up every few months


    9. Polkadi~☆


      Again, what seems to be the issue? I want it too, man.

    10. Strickerx5


      There's no issue man lol

    11. Zaysho


      I'm just having a laugh, Polk.

    12. Polkadi~☆


      I am bad at jokes.

  18. unknown.png

    This is probably one of my favorite teams I've ever put together in a Pokémon game.

  19. The Pokémon Renegade Platinum fan hack is probably one of the most satisfying experiences I've had playing a Pokémon game in a few years.

    trust no one

    not even yourself

    hula hula

  22. That's more or less how I remember Sonic Lost World.

  23. Anyone here follow any podcasts? I've been interested in checking out some but there's so many I don't know where to start. For the last year or so I've been listening to Creative Pep Talk, an art and business podcast, but I've been interested in finding other things to check out.

    1. Strickerx5


      I mainly listen to a lot of the ongoing podcast series over at RoosterTeeth. I’m not a real active consumer of podcast in general but I find their selection to cover a lot of my different interest from video games to just simple irl chats. Other than that I’m usually just listening to various videos on YouTube.

    2. Adamabba


      now Im only listening to Shofu's WDFA podcast. They talk about anything. video games, current events, etc.

      Its been a while since I've seen a playthrough but I watch Brainscratchcomms too, they often don't actually talk about the game they're commentating over so it feels like a podcast lol

      I used to watch the H3 podcast as well.

    3. Dejimon11


      I listen to Bumblekast. BigThinkDimenssion and BadFilmCast.

  24. -decides to go back to Ace Attorney 2 after putting it off-

    -Phoenix meets Edgeworth again-

    I'm remembering what I hated about this game.

    1. JosepHenry


      oh cuz phoenix acts like a betrayed wife?


      i enjoy lol

    2. Zaysho


      I wanted to find it funny at first, but Phoenix comes off as insufferable and unreasonable in his reactions/responses to Edgeworth.

    3. JosepHenry


      It is very insufferable but is hilarious to think of how "tsundere" he is

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      Farewell, My Turnabout is worth getting through that moment, even for how wildly out of character Phoenix is for saying that to Edgeworth.

    5. JosepHenry


      like bitch he aint married to you calm your tits

    6. Zaysho


      Yeah, I've been told 2-4 is overall a great case in spite of the way Nick is written and it's one of those things in the backlog I wanted to knock out.





      (well, that and friends have been roasting me for months about stopping before the trial that I left Maya to die)


    7. Solly


      It's been a while since I played but I don't remember Phoenix's reaction sticking out to me that much. 


      He believed Edgeworth committed suicide and felt betrayed because "saving" Edgeworth was his given reason for becoming an attorney in the first place. Getting pissy is hardly the (W)right or appropriate thing to do, but I thought it made sense?

      But if you hate this, just wait until you get to Turnabout Big Top. 

    8. Zaysho


      I honestly don't remember hating 2-3 all that much, other than it being a bit long and tedious. Generally I was kind of underwhelmed with the game and found Phoenix pining for Edgeworth more weird than anything (and I went into it knowing that the DS exclusive case in the first game isn't accounted for). Getting in his face and telling him he should've stayed dead is a bit much (not done yet, but reading a bit of your spoiler, I assume it's meant to tie into the rest of the case regarding one of the suspects/witnesses, so I'm not going to look much more into it until I finish it).

    9. Dejimon11


      It’s a good case but it’s highly overrated.
