#7102478 Pokémon Let's GO Pikachu and Pokémon Let's GO Eevee

Posted by Gappy Higashikata on 31 May 2018 - 08:44 AM

This is pretty awesome. The game looks great, and I like the action command sort of thing they've got going with throwing the Pokeball. Don't realy care about co-op or connecting with GO, but I'll enjoy Kanto again. I wonder if it'll include all the stuff added from FRLG, or maybe have entirely new areas. I wonder what the story is, because there's still Team Rocket and Mewtwo and all that, but the protagonists aren't Red and Leaf.


A shame this isn't the full on new Gen VIII stuff, but it's a great way to show off how I'm assuming it'll look and play. At least there'll be at least one new Pokemon.


EDIT: Apparently it's a spin-off, that's what people are saying, I didn't even think about that. Feels closer to a remake to me.


We already know it's not a remake, it does not include wild Pokémon battles outside of catching things and according to Serebii, Red and Blue are set to make an appearance in the S/M designs. We can already see that this is a heavily simplified game from previous entries and if it was outright labelled a remake the backlash would be so immense that it would bomb horribly on release.

Basically "Pokémon Go Sit on your couch".

#7100164 Starbucks Scandal

Posted by Gappy Higashikata on 15 May 2018 - 11:22 AM

I have one simple question for you, what would have happened if they were white instead of black? IMO, it wouldn't have played out like this given that change, and that is the point. Also, soley basing your stuff on Fox News is not a good idea.

This was not racially motivated. The fact is that 90% of people really don't care who it is that's breaking the rules, but more that "they're breaking the rules. They're in the wrong.". If a bunch of white hoodies walked into a Starbucks and loitered, odds are incredibly high that they'd be treated the same as these guys. Most media outlets (specifically in America) like to push the race narrative because it makes them look good to the incredibly vocal minority who I'm not going to name and (oh boy here we go) it tries to keep African-Americans in this docile, entitled mindset that Kanye West of all people is trying to eradicate. Pressing the Fox News point, I agree that having multiple sources (from both left leaning, right leaning and centrist media outlets) in the OP would be much better.

Hey everyone, I'm Gappy (big Jojo fan). I've had an interest in YuGiOh going back to when I was a kid and I really want to get back into it. I've used the Card Maker sporadically over the years but never really bothered with the forums until now.

I also do a bit of artwork on the side which I'll post from time to time.

Thanks for reading this!
