#16525316 Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! / Eevee! - Nintendo Switch

Posted by Admin Prime on 09 June 2018 - 10:10 AM

They already confirmed that it’ll have exclusives. GameFreak will never make a game with everything obtainable.

I think I just want Rogue Squadron but it be star fox. With more dogfighting and online battles. I'm afraid to say "dogfighting" cause it will trigger a Torgo pun-attack. :P

Fuck StarFox, just give me Rogue Squadron, lol. Hell, even a straight up Wii U eShop dump of the cancelled Wii collection would do it for me right now.

#16525259 1997 Gen 2 Space World beta/demo leaks, and it's fascinating

Posted by Admin Prime on 31 May 2018 - 09:04 AM

The somewhat infamous 1997 Gold and Silver Space World demo, previously only known via a few old articles and photos, has finally leaked online. To start, the part that's probably most interesting, the beta Pokémon list, ripped right from the ROM:


All sorts of goodies in there. In addition to differing takes on various gen 2 Pokémon (including very different Legendary Beasts, an unrecognizable alternative to Bayleef, and a completely different take on Porygon 2 [the weird dog next to alternate Lickilicky]), there's alternate takes on Pokémon that showed up in later gens, such as Tangrowth, Mime Jr., Mega Pinsir, Lickilicky, and Leafeon, as well as alternate water starters that appear to have inspired the Popplio line.

It seems like at one point the plan was for all gen one two-stage evolutions to become three-stages, and all one stages to become at least two, though many were cut or used later. There's several entirely scrapped babies of gen 1 Pokémon, including Vulpix, Tangela, Goldeen, Paras, Doduo, Meowth, Ponyta, Grimer, and Growlithe. Girafarig also has a baby as well, in the form of that odd ghost-looking Pokémon next to it. Additionally, there was a scrapped Ditto evolution (still only learned Transform), a Farfetch'd evolution, an alternate evolution to Weepinbell, a la Bellossom, and a Quilfish evolution. The Shellder form from Slowbro and Slowking is also present as its own species.

Then there's the entirely new Pokémon that were dropped altogether, with seemingly no analogs in later games. A drastically different fire evolution line (previously known by its starting evolution via old screen shots), a full three-stage water evolutionary line (perhaps tied to the Lake of Rage), a two-stage cat family, a kinda dope fire seal named "Bombseeker", an electric tiger evolutionary duo, a pair of... voodoo doll things? (probably a reference to something, if someone wants to help me out), and a duo that as far as I can tell appears to be wearing another Pokémon's skin? lol. Almost reminds me of Mimikyu in concept.

So yeah, lots of interesting stuff there.

Next up is the world map, which had some big differences:


It appears that originally, Johto was intended to represent the entirety of Japan. Here's the complete rip of the map, which reveals some pretty extreme alterations:


Perhaps most interesting is the town at the bottom right, which may look familiar. It's the entirety of Kanto, compressed down into one very large town. This was likely GameFreak's somewhat desperate attempt to squeeze Kanto in while working around space restrictions, until Iwata famously saved the day and wrote them a compression tool that allowed them to restore nearly the entirety of Kanto.

There's a whole lot more here and here if you're interested.

Is it really surprising?

^ that leak has long been known to be BS. And Let's Go Eevee/Pika was leaked prior, and Fallout 76 wasn't him.

I bet they reveal a racing spin-off of StarFox, developed by Retro.

#16525185 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch (Tentative Title) Announced

Posted by Admin Prime on 02 May 2018 - 06:33 PM

If this is a new smash, what characters are going to be new. I mean, not much new games and characters came out between the last smash and now.
Xeno 2?
Link uses runes now?
Mario uses Cappy?

I don’t think this is a new smash. Just not enough new stuff for me to think they need it.

I mean, Smash 4 had 7 characters that were "new" as you define, two of which were DLC (Bayonetta and Corrin), another of which is only new in the sense of the very specific incarnation of the character (Palutena), with yet another being a really weird case of technically being spun out of a Smash Bros. Brawl palette swap as a new character, then brought back to Smash as baaaarely more than a palette swap (Dark Pit). That's only three without asterisks. So I don't particularly agree. Arms, Splatoon, and a likely Xeno X/Xeno 2 character already hit that three mark assuming you only take one from each (I think all three could justifiably add two), and then you have the inevitable new Pokémon from either Sun/Moon and/or the next gen, and some other miscellaneous options like a BotW Champion, yet ANOTHER FE character via Fates and/or FE Switch, and of course older characters that never made it in/more 3rd party guests.

I know Suda has been campaigning HARD for Travis Touchdown, and if Bayonetta can do it...

They're not gonna be hard to order from other retailers, and GameStop is fucking garbage anyway.

Y'all should get Gamers Club Unlocked and shop for amiibo and games at Best Buy.

Okay, think I see a trend.




Unless I'm missing something, everything before and after is fine. I *think* I know the cause, but I'm not sure. I had to split the database into chunks when I restored everything. My guess is one chunk was either missed, or corrupted.

#16524868 CS is back! More or less.

Posted by Admin Prime on 17 January 2018 - 08:18 PM

So, did ya miss us?

It seems GoDaddy implemented a range of long-needed updates which proceeded to... well, break just about everything. In the process they appear to have done some sort of back-up and restore process on our database which ended... poorly. Long story short, we restored everything from a back-up dating back to November of 2016, meaning all posts/topics/PMs/etc.. made in the time since have been lost. I'll try to see if GoDaddy has whatever back-up they were working off of on their side, but for the time being, just assume that all of that content will be unrecoverable.

Some other notes: we (yes, actual "we", not just me pretending not to be foreveralone.jpg) have been talking about getting the side moved/updated/etc.. If and when this will happen, we don't know, but if it does expect more changes than you may otherwise think. Perhaps a move to a new old domain? Like I said, nothing is set in stone. We'll try and keep you posted.

#16524803 Temporary "freeze" on uploads (including FTP)

Posted by Admin Prime on 31 October 2016 - 08:30 PM

Alright, for real this time. Maybe.

#16524728 Temporary "freeze" on uploads (including FTP)

Posted by Admin Prime on 25 October 2016 - 01:33 PM

In preparation for the move we're "freezing" uploads (this includes post and PM attachments, avatars, and anything uploaded to your server space if you are a member with FTP access) for the time being. "Freezing" being in quotes, because it will still actually be enabled, but we can't promise anything uploaded between now and the completed move will be preserved. I'll notify you when it is once again safe to upload files.

Additionally, if you have FTP access and are the paranoid type now would be a good time to download your directory to keep a local back-up.

Yeah, I won't argue with any of that. I stand by my convictions that people are stupid, though.

I stand by your standing by.

#16524708 So... What are you playing? (general discussion)

Posted by Admin Prime on 24 October 2016 - 06:15 PM

I have Tri Force Heroes, but I never beat A Link Between Worlds.  I need to do that first.

Well yeah, of course you should play the good game first.
