Maybe? Maybe it's like a compound of trademarks? Like they trademarked "Pokemon Let's Go" and then they apply the "Gold"/"Silver"? Or something?...

please don't crush my hopes with reason! Haha.


I am happy that there seem to be at least some people who also like Let's Go. After all the ridiculous amount of hate Let's Go, Eevee and Let's Go Pikachu have gotten, I thought that basically no one liked those games. But I find them a lot of fun and I really do enjoy the quality of life improvements made there (which many hated, apparently). I do agree that the next Let's Go games could be harder, though.

That's really my main gripe with the games. I don't want a walk in the park where everyone can basically get the same experience. One of the things I really treasure about G/S/HG/SS is that they're not just going to give you all the legendaries. Acquiring them can be really challenging and requires a ton of patience and a sound strategy. In my mind, that is totally void and missing from Sun/Moon and Sword/Shield. It may as well be missing from Let's Go, but that is also basically a totally different game. I get the appeal to Let's Go in the same way that I get Pokemon Go's appeal.

I ramble on a bit too much, but in the end all I'm looking for is a Pokemon game with a bit more depth and challenge/reward. I don't even finish the newer Pokemon games due to boredom.

I think Nintendo has had a pretty poor year, but give the situation that's not too surprising.

They and Sony are my favourite publishers so I'm very excited for 2021.

Hope this game doesn't get completely overshadowed.
Oh it will, same way 13 Sentinels did.

Sakuna's finally coming out? Wow. How many years has it been? I talked to XSEED about it maybe 2-3 months ago, and they're like "yeah, it's finally done," and I'm like "pfff I'll believe it when I see it." Good times.

They did not provide me with a free copy, which is boooooshit.

It did but very limited copy, I got mine from amazon because in my in local EBgames it was sold out.
I don't even remember hearing about that game other than a video you posted. I loaned my PS4 out and kind of forgot about it though.

Everyone thining of purchasing Fire Emblem: Three Houses, do it. I'm currently playing it, and it's by far the best Fire Emblem game I have ever played. Completing just one route seems to take around 50 hours on play time, so there is lots of replay valua as well. English voice acting is also very well done, altough I would have hoped for more diferent accents for different characters. Now everyone seems to be talking with American accent, altough I'm not an expert in that field.

I liked LGPE way more than Sw/Sh. My dream game is full HG/SS remake that is faithful to the original, but all areas are full 3D like the Wild Area and it has all the quality of life improvements to date.

Johto and Kanto in full 3D glory with an unprecedented sense of scale, a day/night system, regular catching mechanics, day of the week events, no dynamax bullshit, a rival that’s an asshole. I don’t care if it’s just the original 200-something Pokemon.

My only concern is that Game Freak would be developing it and they seem pretty incompetent with HD development. Between that and never having enough time to turn something that big/ambitious around, I would be a little concerned.

Yes. Fantastic game. Top 5 of the gen.
Thinking on buying Splatoon 2. Still a good get for online gaming in 2020?
Yes it is still active. Still selling really well too.

Terrible writing, great music, 80% of the characters NOT a shit, passable gameplay, ps2 graphics.


(still better than Echoes hopefully the next FE will have more effort put into it/10)

(you) are best girl though

Hilda is the best girl. Also what's with your Avatar? Last week you went conservative and now this week it's not even a female. Election got you shook?

Indeed.

Petra best waifu 4 laifu though. I've still got...two routes to play through I think, plus the DLC. Great game.

She's up there. One of the few people to call out Edel on her tism makes her pretty based and giga stacy in my book.

Conservative??? Also no, this is my husband for now. Problem?

OH right another thing that bugged me was how you could steal students yet they never appeared in the story after doing so. (cutscenes).

I agree, Edelgard’s part should have been a little longer so it could address those who slither in the dark.
Claude is a loser.
Definitely room for improvement but I thought it was overall really solid.

I played the male Byleth because I ain’t no Simp.
Spent way too much time doing tea to grind support levels.

I still have a few routes myself. Maybe I’ll get some time around Thanksgiving.

Edelgard did nothing wrong.

She did nothing right and was a worst Arvis. (he was hotter as well) The only time she wasn't a complete shit was in her own route which I will to this day, say was most likely cooked up after the deadline to sell the game as

WAIT FOR IT

I don't like this new SloWMoTIoN.

Game could have done with the Black Eagles route. It definitely felt like it was cut short. Needed to address those who slither in the dark. Overall I liked the story. I liked how Edelgard was the central character to each route and was fighting for a just cause-overthrowing corrupt church and Those Who Slither In The Dark. Simultaneously the other routes wanting to maintain order and transform Fodland were also just. I have to respect their ambition even if they didn't completely nail every route.

You need to actually play the rest of the game to see why I think badly of said route.

The church wasn't corrupt either, (Rhea's mommy fuckery notwithstanding she helped humanity even after some sided with the mole people) the problem was mainly the people she allied with initially. They were the same people that experimented on her and others. Also the people with male avatars like Edelgard because "she is literally me".

No I know what you mean. Dimitri had a solid route and I played part of the church route as well. I honestly thought they were all pretty good from what I played and heard from friends. Everyone was pushing for justice. Agree on Edelgard's allies-the alliance made sense but it makes it difficult to be sympathetic to her after they kill Jeralt. Overall the game was pretty ambitious and mostly did well to stick the landing. I really enjoyed it. Need to get back to it with the DLC. Looking forward to the next game.

Maybe Monolith Soft can develop it for them under their supervision or something.

Eh anything but Edel tbh. I usually go for the female route and even then it was one facepalm after another lol.
Boinked Petra too and I regret nothing. Best girl aside from Sothis who I didn't know was bangable until after I played the game.
You can't bang a 5000000 year loli wtf we got an Outrageous disciple here! Moshi moshi fbi?

I think choosing sothis just means you live together though.

Only route I've played through is the blue lions and a small portion of the golden deer. Didn't like Claude as much as Dimitri tbh, but perhaps the route gets better as I progress.

Is Silver Snow even worth looking at? Or is inferior to the other routes?

Golden Deer is good towards the end while BL is BL.

Sothis is perfectly legal, I asked Nintendo and they gave me their blessing.

It might have been according to nippon laws though so yeah don't quote me too much on this one.
