  1. Guess Spidey really IS far from home now...

  2. It's basically the online service for all main Pokémon games from B/W to US/UM. My only guess as to what this could mean for Gen 8, is that they'll be relying on Nintendo's servers for online stuff instead of their own. ...Maybe. It's probably just a case of "Do you think Nintendo Switch Online sucks? Then Sword & Shield's online will suck too!"
  3. YES! Finally! Oh, I can't wait to pick this up! Though I do also wonder if they'll be bringing co-op and DLC to the other console ports around the same time...
  4. I'm almost finished with the first palace in P5. But, er... I'm cutting it close to the deadline.

    Is that gonna be bad in the long run?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yes, you always want to aim to finish palaces as early as possible, as you're then allowed to use the following free days to build your stats and confidants. You want to aim to finish the palace in about 1-2 trips, 3 max, at least for the early palaces.

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Crap. Guess I'd better restart then.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      @NegaMetallix

      I wouldn't now. If you're almost done, just keep going and finish it. It isn't a massive deal on the first palace, but you definitely want to do it on Palace 2 and 3 as they have bigger deadlines but still are relatively simple to finish in a few trips.

    4. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      I dunno. I feel like I've made little-to-no progress on anything outside of the palace, not helped by the fact that I'm literally on the very last possible days before the deadline.

      Even if I finish the palace and beat the boss, I'm gonna be left with the smallest possible free time available until the second palace appears.

      *shrug* Up to you I guess.

    6. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      I'll give it some thought at least. I'm likely underestimating the sheer length of the game in total, so it's possible that there's nothing for me to worry about in the long run, so long as I don't screw up with the other palaces.

      (...And there's New Game + too, so...)

      Please never forget that you don’t have to play the game in a specific way. I played Persona 5 blind, and it made my experience feel all the more personal.

  5. Gonna start playing Persona 5 today. Anyone got some helpful tips I should know about before I begin?

    1. DiamondX

      During the game you can spend time with "Confidants". However, what the game doesn't warn you about (IIRC) is that for some you will need to increase your stats.

      There are 5 stats for the main character:

      -Guts (increases when you take on the Big Bang Challenge or by studying in the library)

      -Knowledge (increases when studying or correctly answering questions in class)

      -Kindness (increases when buying nutrients for your plant)

      -Proficiency (increases at the Batting Cages or when you craft items in your room)

      -Charm (increases from going to the Bathhouse)

       These can also prove to be beneficial outside of Confidants (Knowledge allows you to try answering again during an exam, Proficiency allows you to craft more items).

       

      Something more important is learning how to handle your free time as most missions have a deadline. After doing an activity outside of shopping evening will start where you are no longer able to progress with your mission. Make sure to get to the final part of a mission at worst 3 days before the deadline since 2 extra days are required to finish it.

       

      There is more but these are the most important thing in my opinion. Have fun with the game.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Feed your plant as often as you can to level up your Kindness social stat faster.

    3. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      @Polkadi~☆ I literally keep forgetting to do it and I'm almost done with the game and all my stats are maxed or almost maxed while my Kindness is barely at 2 or 3.

    4. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Thanks for the advice!

      You won’t be able to get all your confidants at the start because of stat requirements, and this will be dealt with in NG+ as stats carry.

      That said you want to focus on the following in the first run - 

      -Sojiro - has one of the best storylines, and doing his quests allow you to create coffees and curry to take into dungeons to refresh your SP for Persona specials. It’s one of the most effective ways to restore it outside of leaving, so absolutely worth it.

      -Tae - Tae is the local doctor in the free clinic near Le Blanc and is where Joker will be buying healing items. Doing her confidant gives you bigger discounts and adds more potent items for buying, helping in the long run.

      -Futaba - Not only does she also have a great storyline, but she’s different from the other thieves as she acts as your navigator after the fourth palace. You want her skills ASAP as she’s able to upgrade and buff your party mid game, automatically reveal the randomised map in Momentos, and other useful things. 

      -Kawakami - She’s one of the best bar none, not only due to her storyline, but her abilities is damn near essential. She will be able to excuse you from class on random days, allowing you to take the time to stat build, and more importantly - she can give Joker a massage later in her confidant quests that allows him to perform two tasks at night, as opposed to one, meaning you can use it for more confidants or stat building. She can also make Sojiro’s coffee for you if you’ve finished his quests, and wash items found in palaces. She’s basically a massive time saver.

      -Chihaya - She’s one of the late confidants But one of the best, I made the mistake of not finishing her quests, but I’ve read if you finish her quests up, she’ll allow you to get temporary boosts to your gains, including finishing other confidants quicker.

      -You generally want to get some levels with all of your Phanton Thieves crew. The reason being is doing so will get you some random bonuses, such as them randomly doing an extra turn and stunning an enemy, being able to Baton Pass to other allies when an enemy is stunned and more.

      Whenever you hang out with a confidant, try to have a persona of the same arcana as them in your inventory as often as possible in order to rank them up quicker

      Remember: whenever you see UP!!! next to a confidant that means they will rank up when you see them

      Use the thieves alliance during class when getting asked a question so you can always answer correctly and increase knowledge (or don't if you think its cheating)

      turn on english subs in the menu, even if you're playing with english audio

      Cheers! Making notes now.

  6. So I got some new games today; traded in CTR and a couple others for Pokémon Emerald and Persona 5. Should keep me busy for a while.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Now you too can be introduced to best Persona 5 girl

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Ah yes. I can finally get myself aquatinted with... that one.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yes, that one.

  7. It's nice to see that they're not only continuing to introduce regional forms, but also expand on the concept with exclusive evolutions for those forms.

    The only issue I had with Alolan forms was that, even with the new types/abilities/etc. not all of them were useful later on in the game. With new evolutions like Obstagoon, though, hopefully that won't be the case this time.

  8. The Galarian variants look pretty cool, and I can't say I was expecting a brand new evolution for one of them. Nice surprise there! And a form-changing Pikachu clone, huh? I dig it. So Team Yell are... punks? Again? I wonder if they'll be as much of a non-threat as Team Skull were.
  9. That, and there were a few things they probably had to sort out before Pokemon Bank could be fully compatible with Sun & Moon (for example, the changes in stats and/or abilities for certain Pokemon between Gen 5/6 and Gen 7). That certainly would be nice. But right now it seems like - to The Pokemon Company and Game Freak - unless that middle ground still allows them to release a new Pokemon game every year, they're not willing to find it.
  10. Even if that were the case, veteran players who've played the other games will likely still be able to bring some of their trained Pokemon over to Sword/Shield eventually (unless they get REALLY unlucky with the final Galar Dex selection). So once that option becomes available, I can't help but wonder if newcomers may still be discouraged from competitive play.
  11. Yes, these'll be the first main series Pokémon titles (unless one counts Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee) to limit which Pokémon can be used in the game, with future games apparently following suit. Previous games would allow any Pokémon from every region to be used.
  12. *sigh*

    Seems like whenever something good happens in our home, things always find a way to ruin that good mood almost immediately. I'm absolutely sick of it...

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Yikes, that really sucks.

      Hope whatever happens resolves itself.

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Thanks. I just wish these issues could stay resolved for more than a day, for once.

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Hope your situation improves man.

  13. Just had an all-you-can-eat meal with the family to celebrate my brother's birthday a couple days ago.

    I'm soooooo stuffed...

  14. Man, I hate losing GSP in Smash sometimes. It's like it just says "Hey, this character you think you're good as? You SUCK as them!"

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      It was a stupid inclusion, because people act like you're only good if you have a good GSP yet people cheese their way into Elite Smash

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      I've still yet to see Elite Smash pop up. Any time I'm even remotely close to reaching the requirements, I lose one match and BOOM! There goes nearly half of that character's GSP!

      I miss the Smash 4 options...

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      @NegaMetallix Me too.  That's why I don't do Quickplay anymore.  The last time I remember doing it was when I was trying to beat the Challenges.

    4. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Funny you mention that, as I've literally just finished the last challenge on the online board.

      I should probably use battle arenas more often.

  15. Just finished watching Hobbs & Shaw.

    I'd say the film's definitely stupid, but in a good way. A fun popcorn flick from start to finish.

  16. Off to go see Hobbs & Shaw with my brother for his birthday!

    1. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      Tell your brother happy birthday from me!

  17. So... about to go to bed, until I hear loud squeaking downstairs. I check to see what the heck's going on, and find my kittens chasing a frog around the house!

    Guess I'm really Livin' in Paradise now...

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Sonic is real.

      This is proof.

    2. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Does the kittens happen to be called Big & Blaze and the frog Froggy? XD.

    3. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Nah, the kittens all have different names. (Besides, what would I call the third one?)

      ...The frog might as well be Froggy, though.

  19. Been playing a variety of games these past couple months. First was CTR Nitro-Fueled, which was a lot of fun... for a time, at least. I ended up dropping it around halfway through the first Grand Prix event and haven't picked it up again since. Instead, I decided to try out the first Banjo-Kazooie on Xbox. I'm up to Rusty Bucket Bay (ugh) and the game's been a joy to play so far. I'm aiming to finish it soon so I can collect the Stop 'N' Swop stuff for Banjo-Tooie. I've also been catching up on some PS4 games. Played through and finished the first Mega Man Legacy Collection (thank you rewind feature!) and just recently started on the second collection. Did Mega Man 9 first since it's the hardest one for me... Finally, me and my brother have been playing Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel on co-op, finishing the former's main story before moving on to the latter. We've been enjoying the experience, so perhaps when Borderlands 3 comes out we'll both be playing that too.
  20. I honestly haven't been keeping up with game recently, thanks to the online multiplayer ranging from lackluster to outright infuriating. The single-player content's fine, but not enough to keep me from playing other games right now. But if micro-transactions are on the way, then I think I'm done with this game. Doesn't help that the upcoming Grand Prix is completely uninteresting to me, and I don't think even Spyro is gonna be enough to keep my interest. No, there was definitely a bundle containing N.Trance, Zem and Zam. I've seen it pop up a few times in my Pit Stop after purchasing some characters.
  21. *looks at new game releases*

    ...Wait, there's a Kill la Kill fighting game? By ArcSys?!

    Why is this the first time I've heard of this?!

    1. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      I probably wouldn’t bother with it. It’s not very good, apparently

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Because they only talk about the damn thing once every 5 months or so.

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      It's really bad

    4. TCB

      TCB

      because licensed anime games that doesn't have dragon ball in its title rarely get remotely half the promo-

       

      oh it sucks? nevermind then

    5. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Sounds like I'm not missing out on anything, then. I played the demo and it seemed... alright, but not worth the price it's listed at.

    6. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Hmm. Looking into it further, it seems the main points of criticism are the lack of content and simplistic gameplay, which are especially glaring considering the game's price.

      As a fan of the anime, I may give it another look if it ever goes down in price (like, WAY down). Otherwise, I'll pass.

  22. Hmm, Persona 5's on sale at the moment. I've wanted to get the game for some time now, but with the Royal version coming out next year, I dunno if it's worth getting right now...

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Best to wait for Royal.

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      I suppose. Then again, I'm curious to see for myself the differences between the original and Royal versions, something I feel may be easier to do if I've played both.

      Plus... well, waiting until sometime next year just to play an updated version (not to mention at a premium price) is something that I'm not entirely sure I have the patience for.

      Honestly, there's pros and cons either way, hence why I'm so conflicted...

  23. Yep, for confirmation: They sent a bunch of these tweets explaining the mix-up a couple days ago.
  24. Ah, I thought it might be one of their simuldubbed shows, but I wasn't entirely sure. In which case, yeah it should be on there about a day or two after. Hmm. It has been quite a while since I last used their streaming service (and even then, it was just the free trial, which I only really used to watch the entirety of MHA on there) but I recall the videos playing fine on my Xbox.
  25. Looks awesome! So does this mean the English dub is gonna be airing around the same time as the Japanese release?
