I really, really wanted Monster Rancher. Apparently there was a system where you had more monsters if you had more PS1 games or something. Either way, it looked like a better version of Pokemon and I loved the anime. :mrgreen:

I was skeptical about the anime. It felt like it was competing with Pokemon. However, i did watch most of it. I was in for seeing trainer-like fighting and raising, but seeing the other half of the series watching Tourneys like watching WWF matches.

okay, I actually didn't watch too much. I just liked the idea that I could get pulled into a video game. All animes were copying pokemon at that time anyway (Digimon as well).

In any case, all the games of all the animes were really good. I loved Digimon World. It was like a tamagotchi but fun.

On that same note, I could not stand the first Digimon World. It had no immersive features, and it was just a strange and hard to understand game. I like the 4th one though. Fun with friends.

Part of the problem with the first one was a really bad translation, and i mean really bad translation. the game however once you understand it was one of the best Digimon World games out there. I actually considered Digimon World 3 a great game for it's soundtrack and training montages.

If you could find an extra copy of Digimon World around somewhere, send it to me. XD My copy became too scratched to work anymore. (Yeah, I played it that much.) I loved that darn game!

I've lost count of the hours I played monster rancher 2 for ps1. Too bad monsters died rather quickly under my training. The weirdest thing is that the only monster I used to ever achieve rank A in tournament was with the monster I disliked the most a blue mochi (it was the blue version of that monster Genki has as his best friend in the anime), I think.

I feel the same way about Pokemon White 2. I have to say, the only way that I would get the next game (And I mean the ONLY WAY) is if it was a remake of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. Those were the peak of the Pokemon games in my opinion, and I was actually really bummed when I heard it was Black/White 2 and not the remake I was expecting.

What I really, really, really want is Pokemon RPG for a console like the Wii or something. I think that would be beyond awesome.

Honestly, I can't see that happening, IMO Nintendo, to me at least, may be using Pokemon to sell their portable consoles, I dunno, maybe that's just me.

Of course that's why. Pokemon is one of those series where you already have so many people attracted to it that releasing it guarantees console sales. This is basically the entire point of releasing a game of a big series on a portable console. The mario fans will buy it for mario. The Pokemon fans will buy it for Pokemon. Ect. It's a very simple buisness strategy that works for nintendo becuase they make the games and the console. (yeah it's gamefreak, but their pretty much nintendo's property)

Black 2 is fun but I really did expect the story to be more different. Don't get me wrong; I really like the mechanical changes. I just expected the games to be more different than Pokémon Grey would have been, but they aren't really. The changes are cool but there just should've been more of them.

Nintendo does make console Pokémon RPGs, but they're not always super well-done.

That would be really cool! I haven't played it in a while and I really need a good reason to play on my obscenely-slow-to-play-games laptop. Seriously, I'm considering getting a desktop just to play tf2 with a frame rate higher than 2 fps.

Also, I don't wholly doubt Nintendo use things like Pokemon to sell their consoles, I mean the main reason I bought mine was so I could keep playing the Professor Layton series (although I have to say, I love it now that I have it), but I don't think that's the sole reason they're still releasing new Pokemon games, so I don't think it's entirely unlikely they'd release a title on the Wii. They used to release HEAPS of different games on all their consoles, which I suppose you could still argue was a marketing strategy...Although, all the current titles are available on the previous console, not the current one...so...backwards marketing? :shrug:

That looks awesome! It's amazing how every time a new "real world" RPG comes out it makes all previous ones look completely unrealistic. This one, I think, will pretty much be the pinnacle for some time (that is if it gets funded, it's not looking great though...).

I kickstarted 55 dollars to the Homestuck game already. That's enough video game philanthropy for one lifetime. :P

Apparently the Wii U is almost out. I intend to buy it at some point but I can't say I'm really caught up in the launch hype. *shrugs*

Not that I don't like it or anything (It looks kinda cool, actually). It's just that there's just a very small chance of me actually getting it due to lack of interest. I hardly even play with my regular Wii nowadays.

I got and completed Okami! Arguably one of the best games I have ever played on the Wii (and the list of really good Wii games is rather short anyhow but still). A nice long storyline, plenty to do, break away from traditional character roles (usually in these games you play someone who is the "Chosen Hero" of the Gods, but this time you actually play a God, and not just any God but the top God. And a female as well, few games have a female as the main character), and you get to wield supreme power (which makes defeating enemies and bosses all the more easier).

Spoiler...
The best moment, in my opinion, was when Okami was fighting Yami and its terrible powers rendered Okami powerless. It was then at that moment that the faith and devotion of the people, inspired by Issun and the benevolent acts which Okami performed, revived the powers of the Gods and brought Okami back to supremacy. It was rather symbolic of the fact that, even though she was a God, her power was only made possible by those she inspired. The only thing I was disappointed about was the fact you could not see the Celestial Plain, but that's not all that bad.

I did hear there was a sequal for it on the DS. I wonder how good that game is.

I watched a playthrough of the squeal on YouTube. It looked alright, not as good as Okami, but pretty good for handheld standards.

*Ahem* Sorry, I've just never found anyone else who has played Klonoa.

I recently got the second one (finally) and it's awesome! I'm trying to find a PAL version of the GBA game.

Also, the Wii remake is good for the extra completion bonuses however they speak English and the cinematics are pre-rendered which makes it look less fluid. :( Still cried at the end though...

Pokemon will likely never come to the home console like it does portables. Nintendo's addressed this a number of times and it all boils down to it was born on portables and they feel it works best on them.

Plus there's not really any benefit to having it on console except for "COOL 3D POKEMONZ". The games are honestly basically all identical updates of the same game with no major changes worth noting. Most changes being cosmetic, (new mons and animations and sprites), something that's based in data and statistics (move states, mon stats, balancing stuff), or some really simple new thing to do that isn't real much of a deal anyway (pokemon contests), and whatever that freaking theater thing is. It's basically the same game 2.0 every-time. Sure console games do this two but most of those are big (in the technical sense) enough to warrant being on console. Pokemon is a small game doesn't need to be put on a console for what it does. That's why the console is left almost exclusively for spinoffs with the closest thing to a normal Pokemon console game being Colosseum.

All that aside it truly does work best small and portable. I'm not sure how you play it. But if you do all that extra training. Grinding, EV training, type breeding, and all that other stuff to get the strongest possible competitive mons and stuff,d o you really want to HAVE to be at you're tv for it? It's just more convenient

I've been playing Wolfenstein on the PS3 for the last couple of days. A couple of things strike me as odd. The main character wears jeans and a leather jacket which isn't very spy or ww2 like and apart from the fast moving guys who dissappear it is way too easy to kill nazi's

In all honesty, I've been waiting for a truly "new" Pokemon game for quite a few years. I'm pretty well aware that it'll likely never happen again (Colosseum is the only truly original Pokemon adventure game we've seen since the original games were released), but I'm always hoping that we'll eventually get something that completely breaks the mold of the handheld games. Something where the ultimate goal is something other than "catch 'em all" or "defeat the elite four".

My first idea? Insert choices. Why can't I tell that guy at the end of Nugget Bridge that I'd love to join Team Rocket? Playing a Pokemon game from the villain's perspective for once? Yes, please.

I just noticed that no one has said anything about Black Ops 2 yet. Well i'm going to change that. Zombies on BO2 is amazing with the new mode tranzit where a bus takes you to and from 5 different locations. New guns in zombies are also awesome, like for example the HAMR light machine gun. The Campaign is great in BO2 with places in the missions where you can pick between two choices and each one has a different outcome. What do you Gamers out there think about it?

I've never really been interested in the CoD franchise beyond the occasional night of playing zombies/split-screen with friends. As such, I haven't gotten Black Ops 2, nor am I likely to get it any time soon. Certainly not while it's still at 60 bucks.
Sleet wrote:I don't really see an issue with defeating the Elite Four as the way to "win." I just want there to be lots of choices what you do and accomplish in the meantime.
No, there's certainly no "issue" with it. I would just personally like to see a complete turn-around where that becomes less of a focal point of the game. I'd be fine if they kept it in as an option, but I'd much prefer if the badge-collecting process and fighting the Elite Four were kept entirely separate from the plot itself.

Though I think it was incredibly neat how they got those characters involved in the plot of Black/White, I'd like to see the necessity of collecting badges to progress removed entirely (perhaps implementing a scaling system so that you can fight them in any order you like, and they'll always be at a level to challenge your team). That, and they definitely need to improve the grinding process. Audino was a step in the right direction, but it still needs some work.

I'm not into CoD either except zombies so I won't be getting it but a friend of mine has it and we're all on holidays now so if the zombies are as awesome as Musclecar326 makes it sound, I'll be waiting in anticipation for him to organise a game night at his place.

On the subject of Pokemon, I think if the Elite Four are in the game, they'll always be the climax of the story, although I admit I haven't played a Pokemon game since Ruby/Sapphire so I'm not sure how good the character development is in the later games. That being said, I certainly think an entirely new type of Pokemon game where the badge-collecting is either minimal or non-existent is possible, however it will depend on how Game Freak feel about coming up with a new game mechanic and how scared they are that people won't like the new design just because it's not canon.

What I really want to see is battles being less waiting and tedium. That would mean shortening the intro animation of battles, and also letting you access menus while moves are animating. This prevents there from being unnecessary waiting time.
