Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    you are never going to convince 10 year old geebs that any pokemon other than red or yellow is worth anything

    gen 2 was the pokemon equivalent of star trek: generations. they were scared to leave the old stuff behind and the result is pretty crappy. there was nothing to do in either region except collect hundreds of ratatas and hoothoots.

    I am continually baffled as to why Hoenn gets such a bad rep

    my only problems with it were 1. too much water 2. TOO MUCH WATER

    had a couple design stinkers but what gen doesn't

    a big chunk of gen 3 pokemon are lame versions of gen 1 pokemon

    like zigzagoon and wurmple

    the main reason I don't care much for 2 and 4's designs is the bunch of babies and evolutions, it feels like a roster upgrade rather than a new generation

    I prefer 3 and 5 because they're soft reboots, and while that comes with a couple "replacement" pokemon, all but two are brand-new designs

    Hahahaha whaaaaat

    Bug catching contests, 16 gyms, two sets of elite fours, fighting red, searching for unown, collecting apricorns, challenging team rocket, listening to the radio, engaging in rematches, playing the slots, playing the lottery

    I played a DS (I think?) Pokemon game for about 20 hours one week. That was an exercise in bad control/interface design.

    Ahem

    Giant Bomb

    also the Avengers Facebook game is pretty dang good

    it is just a turn based RPG but with superheroes and you get to be a SHIELD Agent

    I fought red at like 5AM at a friend's house and I was totally sleep-deprived

    had no idea what was coming

    he was a beast

    when I woke up I thought shit that must have been like

    a dream?

    this was confirmed by the fact that he was gone when I turned the game back on

    gen two was designed as the end of the series

    I think that's pretty interesting

    the fight against red was supposed to be the last bit of pokemon ever

    by sticking gen 1 back into the game it's pretty obvious they cut everything out of kanto to have enough time for it all and played to nostalgia because they were worried it wouldn't be good enough. the gyms were super watered down, the pokemon variety was non-existent, and routes had what, 2 trainers on them? gen 2 was empty and bland and the game would have been much better if they got rid of all the throwback since it was pretty much "hey fight these guys! you remember them right?" with absolutely nothing else to do, and made a full kanto game.

    there are only three years in between gen 1 and gen 2

    I think that's a little soon to be playing to nostalgia

    Kanto was kind of empty but I didn't care, I just loved biking through it

    If I wanted to play Gen 1 I could still pop in Gen 1

    Basically Pokemon is not actually all that interesting a game and yet Nintendo has created the closest thing to a perpetual energy machine

    what am I even doing

  • BerkBerk Registered User regular
    i finally got back into online gaming I forgot how hilarious it can be. Playing battlefield three i accidentally team killed my squad leader when he walked into my line of fire. He got so FURIOUS. These games are so testerone laden and homophobic so I discarded any pretense of playing the game properly and said i shot him because i was so attracted to his physique and that i was in love with him.

    where ever he would go on the map i would follow and watch him, slowly slide into his line of sight and stare at him.


    all in all a good time was had, by me at least.

    the art in avengers alliance is better than the art in the hunger games adventures

    okay key problems in the facebook project:

    a) I need a program that captures screenshots and puts them in a folder so I can just keep hitting the screenshot button instead of alt tabbing to irfanfiew every three seconds to save images

    b) I have no idea what to talk about with these

    I think Berk meant a lot of the players are homophobic.

    Not BF3 itself.

    I think.
