Fry and me were talking on Facebook and I brought up Nuzlocke, which he hadn't heard of so I thought I'd enlighten you guys ;D
A Nuzlocke run is when you play Pokemon (any version) and whenever a Pokemon faints, you have to release them, signaling their death. You give every Pokemon a unique nickname so that when they die, you're actually upset. It helps you build a strong bond with your team. If you want to make the game MORE challenging, the official rules say that you should catch the first Pokemon in each area and nothing else, but that's not very fun for me...
Anyways, the reason this is in the fanart board is because whenever people Nuzlocke their game, they sometimes make a comic to accompany their adventure. I'm currently playing through Blue and I've already had 2 Pokemon die before I've reached the SS Anne.
I'll be posting my comic here two pages at a time, so you guys should keep a look out!

So basically it adds a bit of a Fire Emblem flavor with you having to work with what you get (1st monster every area) and losing your monsters when you screw up.
Pretty neat idea, but I know I'd just end up cheating because that goddamn gym leader just critical hitted me three times in a row fuck you I'm keeping my Blastoise. Also I can't imagine the kind of grinding you have to do in order to feel confident enough to take on the elite 4...
...So where's your comic Teev? ;D Guess what, I can't read!
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
