o Bianca my love
Y no battle frontier
But the tournament sounds good.
But with N in the mag it is certain that he will appear in the game.
Looks very promising.
Will have to be a definite download the rom is released.
Need moar N
That artwork of Cynthia is too overused....
EXCITED FOR THIS!
And Best Wishes 2 aswell (if only Brock reappeared and not Dawn, for god's sakes)
I like having Cheren as a gym leader, I always hated Lenora anyway (inb4 racism accusations)
To be honest I hated Lenora too. Her Pokemon were like... Fuck.
This game looks very promising. This is what BW1 should be actually.
What do you hate about her then?
Autumm for Europe, Spring for aussies
So basically around October
Actually this looks really good and hopefully my R4iPlus that I won from the Arcade Comp gets here before its released, can someone remind me of when that is?
So... It literally looks and plays exactly like Black and White with no changes whatsoever other than an added Tournament mode that should've been in place since WFC was invented. Actually, since GBA Pokemon titles seeing that those allowed 4-Player connections already.
Gary mf oak!!
Looks good so far, apart from the shitty forms of the roaming pokes.
Ah, of course... I completely forgot about the strongest point in all Pokemon games...
THE STORY CONTINUES...
Exactly, we get a continuation to a mediocre story only a simpleton could care about. For Gamefreak, this is progress.
What are you on about? Pokemon Black and White's story was very elaborate for Pokemon standards!
I mean, there's the evil team stealing Pokemon, there's a whole lot more gyms then usual and not just one but THREE rivals if you count N who comes out of nowhere and just proclaims himself as your rival even though you've never seen him before!
This is fascinating compared to the usual evil team stealing Pokemon, a lot of gyms and one rival, it's by no means for simpletons.
Well the thing that bothered me is that they had minor potential, making an evil team that wasn't stupidly evil like Team Rocket or whatever the other stupid teams were. Like a team against what they see as the slavery of Pokemon? That's some deep shit for a Pokemon game. But then they literally just say "Oh, this is just a hoax" and steal Pokemon and the same bullshit Team Rocket and Team Plasma and Team Whatever has done in the past. Great job, GameFreak.
I know Pokemon isn't story centered but recently they've been wasting so much time on developing stupid stories that don't work and trying to add "cinematic experiences" to games that don't even look that impressive. Pokemon was about mashing the A button past dialogue and playing quick Pokemon battles which made it an ideal handheld RPG, not a growing mediocre story with really stupid side mini games and "cinematic" sequences.
I disagree. The story in Pokemon has always been a fun but short experience latching onto a fantastic, mainly multiplayer game - it was always short and was supposed to entertain you and brief you into the mechanics of the game before relentless grinding begins. Team Rocket has always been my favourite team simply because its motivation and modus operandi was crystal clear - I loved the inaptitude of the two main villians and I loved the fact that Team Rocket wasn't actually a joke - it was well-organized under Giovanni's rule, you just rarely got to see those bits of glory, which was a good thing. The major operations where great, the two main villians you encounter served as re-occouring comic relief - it was a brilliant setup. The goal was clear - become the Pokemon Master and catch'em all - that's what Pokemon is all about and it never gets old. There is no need to make the story any more convoluted, the story should head back to the basics where it thrived.
Anyways, my point is that it's not really "Click A and carry on fighting" - there was a story. A short story, but a well-developed one that served its purpose. Nowadays... it's just... Long and boring with little "stuff" going on and it's pulled off badly.
When your game series needs some life.
Add cinematic sequences and weird story plots.
Pro Evolution Soccer did it for their 'be a pro' mode which was a surprise.
Soul Calibur V did it and it failed.
In my opinion it was a nice change to the pokemon series, for once I couldnt predict exactly what would happen. Hopefully they wont flop what they started in B&W2
Soul Calibur always had a story.
But not a new flashy one with long cinematics and crappy storyboards focused on 2 people only
They practically abolished the old plot along with its best characters.
I gave up on Soul Calibur after playing Legends on the Wii so I wouldn't know - I own the original for the Dreamcast and that was an amazing game, right now I wouldn't buy a Soul Calibur before pirating it just to be safe.
It baffles me how one can take Soul Calibur and f*ck it up, even on the Wii.
Unless you have others to play it with.
Avoid V completely.
Pokemon can abolish old characters, change up the story and still make it work. Soul Calibur cannot
