The hidden complexity of Pokémon's later villains

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio. May 14, 2022 0:52:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Finally starting to see some good equipment made out of my post-game item optimisation in Atelier Sophie 2. I don't plan to write a review now as I don't feel a burning need to unlike BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light; I'll wait until my next game's done. May 19, 2022 14:09:54 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I would like to be more active around here, but I don't always have the opportunity. May 27, 2022 11:31:47 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I also would like to be more active, but I don't really have anything interesting to say. When I'm not playing games, I'm just being listless. May 27, 2022 12:11:39 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Just now, I thought of making a topic on why am I unusually cold towards Nintendo's own games this generation, but then I realised that the answer is actually very simple: they're remakes, ports or otherwise don't bring anything particularly novel. May 27, 2022 12:28:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I can think of some things to post about. They might not be interesting to anyone but myself, but I think of the forum as more like a community blog at this point. May 28, 2022 10:24:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Is there anything more "anime" than two characters involved in an incredibly fast, intense, elaborate battle with each other while simultaneously having a calm conversation, voices not even raised, and not even short of breath? :P Jun 1, 2022 10:05:31 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is completely random, but I saw a woman with Animal Crossing's Isabelle's hairstyle this morning. She was also dressed in pastel colours, which reminded me even more of Isabelle. Jun 2, 2022 11:42:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: The new State of Play is quite interesting. Stray is unexpected, and SF6 looks better than its disastrous initial logo reveal would suggest. Jun 3, 2022 0:15:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Street Fighter 6 looked like Street Fighter being combined with Final Fight because of the free-roaming segments. I wouldn't mind seeing more stuff like that in fighting games, but then, I've given up on the genre anyway. Jun 3, 2022 9:04:16 GMT -5
Boo Destroyer: ^ We don't get enough of that anymore, if you ask me. Jun 3, 2022 20:04:43 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Where are my bonus rounds where you total a car with your bare hands? Jun 4, 2022 8:51:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: With Xenoblade Chronicles 3 coming out soon, I was thinking of writing about my favorite cutscenes from XC2. Jun 6, 2022 10:23:26 GMT -5
Boo Destroyer: I wonder if Rex, Pyra, and Mythra will appear in Xenoblade 3 as bonus DLC? Jun 6, 2022 20:24:19 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ I can see the "Heroes"/seventh party members being a little like XC2's Blades in terms of collectability (only without the gacha system), so I think the potential is there for having a lot of extra party members. Jun 7, 2022 8:43:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Started the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes demo, currently at the first episode. I picked the Black Eagles. The beginning felt kind of slow. Jun 18, 2022 8:33:16 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: OK, I'll have my impressions of the XC3 Direct shortly... Jun 22, 2022 9:26:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I still want to write some things about XC2 before XC3 comes out, but haven't quite been able to yet. Jun 22, 2022 12:17:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I played through the demo of a game that I wouldn't have considered — Aiyoku no Eustia, an old adult game (console version, so no adult contents). One thing that surprised me is that I played it for 6 hours and it's still going. More on that later. Jun 26, 2022 9:37:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What's with that awful upscaling in that Mega Man Battle Network collection? Jun 28, 2022 8:58:25 GMT -5
