    In this week's episode we discuss the recent State of Play presentation from Sony, as well as the possibility of more PlayStation exclusives coming to PC. Next, we talk about the recent achievements in the homebrew and hacking community, specifically the "release" of Dinosaur Planet's N64 beta, as well as the DS Lite's newly found TV out function. Afterwards, we briefly mention EA's decision to scrap the "games as a service" model following Anthem's failure. Finally, we give our reactions to the Pokemon Presents announcements, including our thoughts about Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl's controversial art style.

    I did not care about the Ruby and Sapphire remakes and I do not care about this ones.

    Honestly like the new Pokemon DP remakes' artstyle and very relieved we aren't getting more "let's go" abominations

    To be honest Gen 1 Pokemon have gone by many redesigns so is less bothersome.

    Didn't care for the Playstation State of Play. It was even more underwhelming than the last Nintendo Direct.

    Glad that EA are backing off on making Dragon Age a multiplayer experience and non-live service, but who knows how long they'll stick to this decision in regard to their other properties?

    I don't particularly mind the art style of BD/SP, but I do share the sentiment of it looking rather lazy and that it's supposed to be a "faithful remake." If they don't at least add anything new to the game, I will be disappointed.

    My biggest fear with Legends: Arceus is that it will be the Pokemon equivalent of Dynasty Warriors 9 where it was open world gone wrong with horrible assets and glitches, given the footage we saw looked very pre-alpha. In the least, they still have time to polish it, so I really hope my worries prove to be unwarranted.

    What's this new DS lite functionality? I don't have time to listen to the podcast right now.

    I thought BD/SP was what i was waiting for a few years now (I just hope they add mega's at least and a full dex)

    Good that there's no more Let's Go games, although I see no reason to buy BD/SP - which, based on their wording, will be just a reskin of the original games - when I could just play Platinum on the DS. Eh, hopefully Legends turns out good.

    Let's go is basically the easy Pokemon game for young kids, like Pokemon Yellow was but targeted to four to five year olds. They also wanted to make something based on the mobile App. Eventually the Pokemon Go App will die and ten years for now someone will figure how to hack the game to add any Possible Pokemon you can have in Let's Go and make it appear legit because it supposedly came from Pokemon Go mobile game.

    This is nothing really new. Gen 2 had the phone thing in crystal, Gen 3 had the e-reader cards; the DS games had so many event Pokemon it was insane and the 3DS games had the barcodes or whatever you call them.

    Very true! Although I would argue that the 'gimmick' in Let's Go was much more of a change to the formula than any of the others. But yeah, it was just that, a gimmick, and it looks like it was (thank god) a one-time thing.

    Pokemon Snap

    Pokemon Puzzle League.

    Pokemon Ranger.

    And so on, spinoff games are nothing new.

    And yes some of them let you tranfer Pokemon to a main series game.

    LG was more to entice Pokemon go players to the real Pokemon games it was just a bridge for new players who play pokemon Go nothing more, besides it's safer than getting hit by a car or falling off a cliff :rofl2:

    It was also definitely targeted to young kids.

    The Bouncer would be a great Sony exclusive to come to PC.

    Since streaming games is a losing business, look at Stadia, porting them it is.

    Turns out that unless is an Online Only Game, people are not willing to buy a game that will disappear when the servers for it are taken offline permanently.

    But that’s what I was thinking. The Bouncer would be a great online game.
