      Also speaking of Naruto,I know that whenever a character has a super power that manifests in a humanoid form people instantly call it a stand,but my brain always goes to the Susanoo similarity first,because I watched Naruto before I even knew about Jojo.

    • A lot of that thread sounds like speculation and conspirancy theories but it is true that yearly releases hurt in the long run, just look at Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty. That's why I was glad that they didn't immediately jump into Gen 8 right away when the Switch first came out and if they really had to release something on 2018 at least it was a smaller side project rather than the main thing.

      Man,being able to walk around in a fully 3d environment in a FE game feels so weird to me.Have they done something like this in the past?I've only played a few games in the franchise,so I'm not super familiar with every mechanic and feature they've introduced.

    • There was dungeon exploration in both Gaiden and its remake. Fates has the hub but from a top-down perspective. This is definitely something generally new, though.

    • I'm not sure how I managed to forget the dungeon exploration in Echoes,I feel bad for that,but in my defense I was thinking something more on the lines of walking in an overworld and talking to friendly NPCs(something like the My Castle mechanic in Fates,but in 3d)

        Loading editor
    • It’s 2.5D in Fates. The camera angle is from above with sprites going about but there are 3D models and you can look around from a first-person perspective with everyone and everything being in 3D.

      From what I've seen the games are kinda liked the sims or harvest moon,where you make your character and just live a regular life in the game world.I also think it's focused on multiplayer features too?I remember seeing a bunch of people talking about others visiting their town in-game,which is why I didn't play any of the games to begin with(I can't go online on emulators)

        Loading editor
    • @Tyrant: On a note, the appeal of those games is seeing progress. You start with nothing, then slowly discover stuff and improve your "life".

      Now, earlier Harvest Moon games were more about playing it on a loop until you get bored, but my favorite sequel "Harvest Moon: A wonderful life" is still my favorite because it actually has "collection" like endings (I think there are 8 if my memory serves me right) and rather then living forever like Ash in other games, you simply start a New game+ with this one, so you keep improving while doing something different every time.

      It's available for the PS2 and GC, so if you feel like it, look it up.

        Loading editor
    • @Jucatorul

      Rune Factory is a lot of fun. It's basically Harvest Moon+ (although idk for sure since I've never played an actual Harvest Moon game) And it's one of the few game series that get progressively better with each installment. If you want to devote yourself to farming, you can, you can also go on quests for the villagers and court them, you can forge your own weapons and medicine to go dungeon crawling, and of course, you can fight and tame monsters to help out on your farm. It's a lot of fun, and worth trying out, especially since RF5 is coming soon. While it can get repetitive if you devote time into your schedule of maintaining your farm and talking with the people in town every day, the different holidays and events help break the tension, especially in RF4, where certain events with characters just trigger and you have to get involved with the villagers' daily lives. Also, the different dungeons and collecting items for weapons, cooking, and making potions brings a lot of variety into the game. I didn't really start to feel like I'd hit a repetitive rut until I devoted like 100+ hours into it. It's a game with a lot of freedom where you can do whatever you want.

      Of course, I feel like this is people trying to pile on hate after the national dex removal thing. To justify them not liking the games futher.

      I’m still going to get the game. If I don’t have fun like I did not with USUM, then I will have to stop preordering the series from now on.

Casual fans/noobs might not ever learn it until maybe after buying the game, no matter how they announced it, as well.

      Basically, they’re in a no-win situation and probably knew they were, which tells me that they weighed the consequences and picked this one. Obviously, they need to live with it and will, but still.

    • The models for all existing pokemo including walking animations were already all made and "future proofed" if they screwed that up then given size of company and problematicness of people uddenyl having their fave pokemon locked out they should've bit the bullet and hired more people when the challenges started a year or more ago. I realize this is gonna be an issue at some point but that's gonna go over a lot better when the games are actually starting to reach a more impressive techical state, and if they have another simpler game/line to allow the other stuff to be used in battles, which if home is should've been revealed to avoid this whole disaster. The games really aren't that impressive technologically and this had been one of the key aspects of the games and they just tore it out. Anyways they've stated themselves they don't even have their A team working on the games. They could've shifted resources and delayed town, or hired more people but the chose this route cause they (either gamefreak or the pokemon company as a whole applying pressure/limits to them) thoguht they could continue to get by dedicating relatively little staff and money to their games for the hugeness of the franchise because people would buy it anyways so long as they made it flashy and kept doing the bare minimum or slightly below of what's expected from them. We've seen stuff like battle frontier, meaningful legendary encounters and dungeons and well designed events, megas first partially now completely, and more cut from games increasingly leaving them feeling hollow, and the line needs to be drawn somewhere, they are't some small franchise that can't afford to be dedicating more resources if it's made clear this won't fly anymore.

    • What I have a problem with is this angry mob mentality people have adopted, like it's perfectly reasonable to be dissapointed by the whole national dex thing, I also am dissapointed by that, but that hardly warrants this "BOYCOTT THIS TRASH!!" pitchfork and torch knee jerk reactions people are having followed by them now looking for more little things to make more angry rants about.

      The whole angry mob mentality isn't just for Pokemon either, lately this is slowly becoming the normal reaction the internet has to well, anything. At one point it stops being feedback and it straightup becomes hate bandwagoning for the sake of bandwagoning.

      As GameFreak being smaller, hiring more staff doesn't automatically solve all the problems.

    • They were trying to rebrand it as “something kids love like Kinder Eggs”. I think they feel like saying that means they won’t get regulated (they will), but it more winds up risking that toys aimed at kids with “surprise mechanics” will be regulated as well because of their greed. This can affect TCGs in a serious way.

      And honestly, the more I hear of loot boxes the more I feel Belgium is right. It’s just straight up gambling just without anything of monetary value given to the consumer. It uses all the same tactics to get people addicted except it’s worse as it’s blatantly advertised to kids all the time in our own homes. Most aren’t affected, but plenty have had their finances ruined because of their addiction. If gambling gets regulated, so should loot boxes.

      Also, EA flat-out lied when they said “we don’t call them loot boxes” as they clearly have called them loot boxes even this year on social media. They’re trying to call it something different because loot boxes became a dirty term, when it was their scummy behavior that dirtied it to begin with! They don’t want to stop this terrible stuff even after people are getting wise to it, they just want to get away with it!

      tl;dr: EA’s greed is going to be the reason this stuff gets banned and it may even spill over into other industries.

I mean,I've literally been saying that since X/Y,so I guess I should be happy that more people are finally catching on to this?But I still have a big problem with how people are lashing out at the developers,feel free to express your dissapointement/concerns,but don't be aggressive and resort to insults,that's not helping anybody and it will just make you look like a douche.

      Also disregarding the national dex,the games still look significantly better than previous titles,so it is an improvement,the areas look larger,Wild Area is a great addition(and it does seem like there will be some sort of crafting system,there's a new "ingredients pocket" in the bag)and so far I've yet to see something that actually makes me dissapointed in the games.

Yes the angriest are gonna be the most vocal, but the general idea of boycott a game for cutting stuff near and dear to people to send a message isn't reall unreasonable especially when they feel these aspects will continue to get cut as long as the company feels it won't impact sales.

    • Excessive hostile anger and threats isn't the ideal way to send a message and plenty of them are only angry for the sake of hate bandwagoning. There have also been cases of boycott threats over even smaller things before in other games, it's also the fact that boycott riots is the default reaction now, making angry threats and demands with pitchforks and torches sends the wrong kind of message too and that's the issue I have. Like I said, there's a point were the anger stops being feedback and becomes just hostile hate bandwagoning

      Besides if there's one thing I'd say is the actual issue is that the games have been annual releases for a while. Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed both have shown clearly why annual releases hurt in the long run, a better solution if instead GF were to go a year or two without a release to give it more time and angry mobs ain't gonna help with that.

    • They need to focus more on spinoffs and their mobile games. They already are pivoting hard into the mobile space and even well before Nintendo ever did, but this stuff needs to be a greater focus. Like, they can have TCG sets based off spinoff games during the years they don’t release a core game.

      Also, loot boxes are still greedy. Bears repeating.

      few things I noticed:

      Dynamaxing your pokemon seems to give it an HP boost.Yamper had more total HP after Dynamaxing.

      The pokemon cries are a lot clearer now.Yamper's actually sound like barking,and Drednaw's like a proper growl.

      Didn't think about this before ,but the added effects of Dynamaxing actually make the gym leaders harder.I hope there's a gym leader/elite 4 for at least every type that has a dynamax move that gives a power boosts in some way.

    • Them not bothering to take that time is resting on their laurels, no? YW3 was the best in the series but sold worse than YW2 and it was because they didn’t change enough while also trying to sell a lot of merch. They then decided to take their time on YW4, leading to a lot of good changes and much better graphics.

      EDIT: Basically, they go “people will buy it anyways, so let’s release the games annually” and because it’s true as people do buy it, they never bother to change the formula all that much.

    • And note that I’m saying this as someone who will buy Sword or Shield, but also as someone who was bored in gen 7 when he wasn’t bored any gen before. I plan to not buy any other gen 8 games if I’m bored again. Maybe a theoretical gen 4 remake, but like, I had more fun with YW3 than I did with Pokemon and that should say a lot.

      I think a big way to get fans back is doing what is described in the video (and no, not the graphics part). I feel it would be cool if you could become the champion of something else beyond battling. I mean, still have battles and such, but have a Hall of Fame for something like contests or business or something. That’ll change the formula enough for people to play for a long time.

      I'd like if they folded in the Pokémon Ranger games (those kinda disappeared, didn't they?) into the main series and just have you have the option of going down the route of Pokémon Ranger.

    • ...a trainer that only ever battles. You can train Pokémon for other reasons. At most, we only ever got contests and that wasn’t ever all that complex.

      My point is, is that people are bored of the same formula again and again and when people suggest real changes, people don’t want them even when they’re valid.

      Plus, there’s always been a big dissonance between the themes of Pokémon and the gameplay.

        Loading editor
    • And very much agreed, Exarch. I loved the Ranger games and am sad they stopped making them. Those games had less issues with Pokémon’s main themes and probably exemplify them better than the main games.

        Loading editor
    • @Future

      Indeed, they perfectly exemplify pokemon's main themes. Rather than capturing pokemon and then treating them as partners, growing closer to them as friends working together for a common goal as you grow stronger, you capture pokemon to use as solutions to mundane problems in your life and then callously throw them aside when you're done with them, never even bothering to form a bond as you see them as nothing more than tools.

      ...How is that better?

        Loading editor
    • it wouldnt make sense to try to fit an entire alternate game basically into the main series (everything is designed around you being a trainer), though I'm sure soebodies designed a ranger like ruleset (ala nuzlocke). Anyways right now the ranger stuff doesn't really work as we lack the whole interface for it, and motion controls introduce issues with session length and stuff with how vigorously you'd need to move and and how many tries if they maintained difficulty, even if they made it like just tiny circles there could be issue with wrist injury or something.

        Loading editor
    • Because you let them roam about free and use them to help other Pokemon. You aren’t “throwing them away”, but going “thanks for helping, feel free to go back to your friends and family!” You’re “borrowing” them, not taking them away from their home and possibly just leaving them in a PC forever.

        Loading editor
    • @Dragnoran

      They don't need to be a touch screen based system, or the following system. Heck, they can make it similar to Pokemon Let's Go where we capture pokemon without battling them, and the pokemon are released after using them to clear obstacles or win battles. I don't think anyone is asking for drastic mechanical changes, just flavor ones. They can make some part of the game where you run a berry farm and your pokemon help you out, like a Harvest Moon game. Just take minor side-games and expand them to a full-fledged goal. Like, if Pokémon Contests in the game were taken to the same extent as the anime, where there's a Grand Festival similar to the Pokemon League. Contests in Ruby and Sapphire I think are the closest this has ever come, I think some people just wish they didn't have to devote the "conquering the gyms" element as well.

      @Future

      At least when I capture pokemon I can form a bond with them. Pokémon Ranger always depressed me that I only got to have one partner pokemon (except Almia, of course) it always kind of seemed shallow.

      I always go back to Dryden's statement in Pokémon B&W: If pokemon didn't want to be with humans, they would just leave. Pokémon like battling, and they like growing stronger because they like to evolve. The games don't cover this for gameplay purposes, but the anime and manga do. Pokémon fighting and not fighting has always been up to them; anyone depicted as forcing pokemon to fight against their will has been portrayed as universally villainous.

    • I remember one of the Ranger games scratched my DS screen, it was partly my fault but even then drawing circles at high speed repeatedly can't be good for the thing.

      Having played the Switch port of Rayman Legends which has some levels with mandatory touchscreen controls, I think it's safe to say a normal Ranger capture interface like the DS titles certainly wouldn't be good for that screen, or your finger.

      Yes, which is why I was looking for a way to implement it that wouldn't need the touchscreen.

    • and so you asked the guy who said it wasn't feasible?

        Loading editor
    • I was hoping you would be less close-minded.

        Loading editor
    • I am pretty sure there are plenty of regular folk in that world that do treat their Pokémon as trash because there are people in this world that do that to animals. Plenty of vicious animals are unable to escape horrid conditions not because they don’t wish to but because they’re unable to and I fail to see how that isn’t the case for some Pokemon.

      It’s just convenient that every Pokémon you catch in the game likes to battle despite that they should have different wants and needs even throughout the same species (though I do acknowledge how stupid it would be from a gameplay standpoint if any single Pokémon you caught would just outright refuse to ever battle).

      I get that on some level, it’s silly to apply real world logic to Pokémon but I just feel it’s weird that every Pokémon likes fighting when most people don’t and plenty of animals don’t either. Plus, some are literally former people and some are actually smarter than people. There’s just some disbelief there that does get suspended when I play the games, but is still there in the end.

      At least in YW, it’s all played off as the Yokai doing their buddy a favor and putting their medal in the watch is teleporting them to your side. They even show that they can refuse so they have autonomy (just done in the show of course as they never refuse in the games). Not to mention that in the show and the games, the protagonists are generally doing favors for Yokai right back. The only time I ever saw any real focus on doing favors for Pokemon was in Ranger.

      Also, you can just draw circles with your fingers. It isn’t that hard and I imagine that in a hypothetical Ranger Switch game, the loops will be allowed to be less precise to account for the fact that fingers are a lot fatter than styluses lol. Most people mostly play their Switch handheld, anyways. The Switch also already has a few handheld only games that demand the touchscreen too. It’s a shame to be locked into a control scheme, but TWEWY’s docked controls sucked. No two ways about it.

      TL;DR for this weird rant: N was right to a degree, Pokémon needs more than just battles in the main games, Pokémon needs to take more pages from YW’s playbook, and a Ranger Switch game is definitely possible.

      Seriously, go watch some gameplay footage of YW4 (it came out in Japan this month). You will go “why can’t Pokémon do this?” at multiple times in the video. I recommend Abdallah. He’s cheesy and inoffensive to an absurd degree, but he’s a nice fellow and is pretty thorough.

      Not being given enough time FROM PRODUCERS and such, who demand the game come out around Christmas season, or more recently around March 20th so it still impacts the fiscal year, make it so there are limitations that force things to be cut or are forced to remain the same.

      Or, maybe one of the reasons the national dex isn't in Sword and Shield is because there are just too many things for kids whose first game console is the Switch will ever be able to figure out?

    • I'd normally agree with that,but for some reason Cuphead really worked for me.I guess it was because the game was a bossrush,instead of a regular platformer,so when I died it didn't feel as punishing?Like,after each death it felt like I was learning something more about the boss'patterns,so it didn't feel like a complete waste of time like how it feels when I die in a platformer.Game's definitively hard,but fair.

    • The main problem I have with trial and error games like Cuphead or Super Meat Boy is that the idea behind these types of games is for the player's reaction to be "Yes I finally did it!" after beating a hard section, my reaction however most of the time is an angry "It's over I don't want to do that again!", and given the whole game is designed like that... yeah.

      Also, fun fact: before Cuphead was worked on over the course of years by three people before Microsoft picked it up for distribution when they showed off a demo. Specifically, it was a pair of brothers with one of their wives as the artist.

    • It is unconfirmed, but apparently the stage selector Algorithm for Mario Maker 2 in Endless Challenge doesn't pick levels with 0 views because they don't have a win rate nor like/dislike ratio so it can't judge the difficulty, meaning if you upload a level and it doesn't get played quickly chances are it'll stay at 0 views unless you can reliably share the download code.

      I also preordered 3H and DQB2 but I already know those games will be good and the companies earned my trust. Well, JP SE has. The western branch deserves skepticism.

    • Oh, I know it was sarcasm, but just felt like pointing that out. By and far, it’s dumb to preorder anything by a big gaming company unless it’s a limited edition (and most of those lose their value, anyways). It’s also dumb to preorder a digital game. If you want to preload it to play it ASAP, do it the day before release.

      Reminder: the point of a preorder is to ensure you can get it at or near release due to scarcity. A game by a huge game company won’t be scarce. They just want preorders so they can get money before you know if the game is crap or not.

    • Why do they keep shoving pseudo-legendaries into the games? It's getting kinda ridiculous. Like, in Sun and Moon where you could get a Salamence early on. Pseudo-legendaries used to be powerful pokemon that were hard to find for late in the game, now there's like five of them available per game release at various points. At this rate, we may get a game where half the pokemon are part dragon because they have to update each new game with all the previous pseudo-legends.

      I dunno what's going on up there. I dunno what man in the high throne dictated for everything to be the way it is. All I know is GF either cut corners on PURPOSE due to either for good or bad reasons, or cut corners unwillingly due to whatever higher power.

      Because every big wig has an even bigger wig. Some say GF had to remake all the models...but then why the same animations? I just. Don't. Know.

      All I DO know is if the game has a good plot with interesting characters and nice new pokemon designs, I'll love it. And yet, now with this whole debacle going on, its really tampered with how I view pokemon games... It's like pieces of my childhood are deteriorating or some crap..

      All I know is there's gotta be a reason. There's gotta be a reason why this isn't the biggest pokemon game ever, because it really could have been. It could be for GF, but clearly the fans who have woken up and are asking for more. And it kinda hurts me to say that I sort of agree...

      I was perfectly fine before this whole fiasco happened. But I guess I was just dancing in a dream...

        Loading editor
    • Honestly, I've come to the personal conclusion: Gamefreak should rotate the games every other year (perhaps even if they dare every 3 years, though that'd be crazy probably). So I will agree with that.

      And honestly, them not having every Pokémon in it ... I am not as miffed on as I used to be, but I still think it's a horrid decision simply because of the false promises of better quality and the fact we aren't getting anything of true value from it.



      Also, really version exclusive gyms is kinda sad - I'd really rather have had if they pulled an anime where there's more than 8 gyms - but you can kinda choose which 8. Or at the least make the other one fightable in the post game perhaps.



      Then again, with how the series has evolved - two versions has kind of become archaic since about Gen 5 or 6.

    • Yokai Watch stopped doing the multiple versions thing. In fact, the western version of YW3 even combined the versions into one game. It’s clear they saw that people didn’t like it.

      That said, I don’t think people would like just one version for Pokémon. It can be rather interesting to see how the same place could be different in little ways, you know?

      Just as long as they stick to just the two versions and knock it off with the “definitive third version” crap. People really backlashed against USUM and when YW did it, they definitely felt it in their sales. Just make DLC...

    • Personally I think a good way could be to have 1 game, but once you boot the game up you can choose what version. I believe the Megaman starforce series did something similiar with the second game (although there were 3 versions, and you had to choose between 2 depending on what you bought).

    • When it comes to the dialogue, most of it is the same, regardless of gender. Also, all lines are voiced, which is likely why the dialogue is like that. That’s probably a big factor in getting rid of non-MC romances and kids, too.

      And I do mean all lines are voiced, too. They definitely carried that over from Echoes.

    • lost end yes it is a political statement to have romancing options in a game with a character that's basically meant to be a self insert and exclude gay ones

    • Cuphead has an Easy mode but you can't beat the game in that mode so don't even know what's the point.

      Celeste does has an Assist mode, the game says you should play in normal but as far as I know doesn't punish you for playing with Assist.

    • Ah look at that,first Yokai Watch game announced for the Switch.That's 1 more game I wanna buy once I get a Switch.The list is getting quite long,I'll have to figure out a top 5 or something.

    • So in 3 houses the protaganist is now confirmed to be able to date their students from what I get? 



      Yuck.

        Loading editor
    • Only after they stop being their students. There’s a time skip. They definitely have catered the game more towards western tastes. There aren’t that many child looking characters and the only one that seems to be recruitable is romanceable after she takes on an adult form (those manaketes, am I right?) and post time skip, the youngest is 20. The minigame where you get closer to units is now tea time instead of petting them, as well.

      And before anyone yells “politics!” about this game again, this is about actual common sense along with getting this game to sell a good deal of copies outside of Japan.

    • Oh that... actually reasonable. I mean I knew about the time skip, but I haven't paid too much attention to 3 houses.

      I am actually okay with this then.

    • Here's a friendly bit of anecdotal advice: If one of your Switch games happens to have a loose pin due to a factory error that you didn't notice... DO NOT insert it into your Switch otherwise the card reader might pay the price.






      the repair's gonna cost me 70$ and might not even be fixable...

    • Speaking of (S)witch, did anybody heat about the joycons failing recently? To be exact, they "drift"

        Loading editor
    • It's more of a general problem were dust gets into the controller through the small open gaps that analog sticks leave and cause either drifting or squeaking, happened to me before with PS2 controllers.

      It's rather easy to fix though, just open the controller and clean the dust. That being said, opening a joycon then putting it back together without breaking it is no easy feat.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, but I heard cleaning it only gets you so far.

      Makes me wish they'd implement manual dead zone calibration.

        Loading editor
    • I've had drift issues before and I found a guide that suggested applying rubbing alcohol under the rubber cap on the thumbstick and if that didn.t work buy a repair kit and follow their guide on how to replace the sticks. They also had a guide for reparing the sticks, but they recommended against it. 

      I managed to replace the sticks and they work perfectly (the R button is broken though). 

        Loading editor
    • The Switch does have an option to calibrate the analog sticks, if anything that's the first suggested solution then if that doesn't work then you should consider cleaning it.

    • Whelp, got the Switch fixed, but it's still 70$ and I'll have to rebuy Mario Maker becasue I couldn't refund the broken copy.

    • Anyone planning on getting 3H? Still deciding whether to get it or not. I only really played Fates and even then it was on Phoenix Mode (I was a complete noob at the time regarding FE).

    • I preordered it months ago. Anyways, on easier difficulties, you can use Divine Pulse more often and even to all the way back to the beginning of the map, if you like. The easier difficulties even allow for infinite grinding.

      Basically, I’m saying that Phoenix Mode isn’t in the game but also isn’t necessary. There was even a reviewer for the game chosen specifically because he never played FE before or strategy games at all and he said that he could finish it with little difficulty thanks to what I had mentioned here.

      And if you like a challenge, the harder difficulties outright don’t allow infinite grinding and has few uses of Divine Pulse. With options for both casual and classic, of course.
