  1. I have found myself wonder WTF is going on with the Pokemon fandom. It's gotten so divided now in opinions that you either support Gamefreak or you are Gamefreak hater. This whole war over ideals isn't anything new, but it's seemingly reached it's apex with Pokemon Sword/Shield now being a thing.

    The things I've noticed is that the side that hates what Gamefreak is doing to Pokemon, argues all the of things that old Pokemon games had that recent generations no longer have. And how recent generations are horrible due to this fact. Then there are those who blindly worship the ground Gamefreak walks. Thinking all the Pokemon games are flawless. Me personally. I really don't fall into either category. I enjoy the games in the series, but I am not conceded enough to say the games are 'flawless', either. I'll openly admit that each of the Pokemon games have their issues. But I don't let those issues color my opinion of the games.

    Each iteration have new things and have removed things I too have enjoyed before. And it is heartbreaking to not be able to do certain things. However, I see it as Gamefreak playing with ideas. Experimenting with things to see what will stick and what will fall like a sack of goo. Which is why I appreciate when they do mix things up. They add things to a rather stale formula that make the games continuously engaging. I'll admit that games like the remakes of Ruby and Sapphire were not really within my realm of interest, but I'm sure there are those who enjoy those games. There is a market.

    Me personally, I am a MAJOR custom character buff and I was delighted when Pokemon X and Y debuted the custom character feature. Yeah it was limited and unimpressive. But the idea exploded. And it returned somewhat improved in Pokemon Sun and Moon. And now Sword and Shield have improved on it even more.

    Also I see people complaining about the Gigamax Pokemon and the lack of National Dex. For the fore complaint. I can see the idea being a bit jarring. I raised an eyebrow at it when I first saw this feature. But seeing how it works as we got closer to release, I rather like the idea. Plus it looks to be bring back a lot of the lost challenge, recent Pokemon games don't have. As for the latter complaint. I see it as a petty gripe being made by avid Pokemon fans. Don't take this the wrong way, but I see a lack of a National Dex as a good thing. The reason why is because I see Pokemon Sword and Shield as a refresh of the series. I complete mix up from the stale formula of the past. We don't need to have all the old Pokemon and seeing new Pokemon for the game is honestly refreshing. Getting a break from having to face mostly the same Pokemon over and over again. But that's how I see it.

    If you like the ideas or are curious about how it will be, buy it. If you hate every aspect of it, don't buy it. No one is forcing to buy it or to generally think otherwise. Despite what warring fans of the series might say. I am going to personally get Pokemon Shield and enjoy it. Well.. when I have the money to get it. So yeah.
  2. I short while ago back. I'd say the during the very end of last month I had to kick out the 'roommate' living with me. And have him live at his own place in the same apartment complex. He hasn't been exactly been taking it too well and has been wanting to move out soon. Anyway, back to the point. He took his PS4 and Nintendo Switch with him, leaving me with nothing to play. Since I had my money to myself. I figured, *squee!* it, and got myself a X Box One.

    The X Box One I have now has been keeping me entertained for a while and I think I may be getting back into the swing of gaming more often, due to it. I downloaded a digital copy of Oblivion, Borderlands Pre-Sequal, and Borderlands 2. And don't worry, one of my other friends introduced me to the first Borderlands. I managed to get the X Box One version of Fallout 76 from a pawnshop for pretty cheep. Also the X Box One I got was the Halo edition, so I got the Master Chief Collection, which has Halos 1-4 in it. Me and the other friend, who introduced me to Borderlands, played the first Halo with me and we beat it with in a few hours. Mostly because my friend played the original avidly when he was younger.

    So yeah, I've been having fun with Borderlands 2 and I got to try Halo. Also I made a character on 76. The only thing I want to get for now, aside from the upcoming Borderlands 3 in September, is Skyrim. Actually, I just started up Borderlands the Pre-Sequal today and I had a blast popping the heads of Scav with a sniper in Zero Gravity.

  3. For those of you who are wrestling fans and hate the PG era, this will be some serious good news for you. Apparently WWE are now potentially being required to make their content edgier and more adult to help make up for plummeting ratings. Ratings that got so low due to the 11 years of PG Era BS no doubt. Interestingly, with this new shift in mindset coming soon after this years WrestleMania, it also seems that Smackdown has been bought by Fox. To be place in the Friday Night line up to help with their rating as well. If the new edgier era, being speculated about, is true for WWE. This may mean good things for Smackdown and Fox as well.

    Not to mention that since both Raw and Smackdown have different wrestlers for both brands. Fox getting Smackdown for Friday nights, and Raw airing on USA, like usual, could present some new and interesting things happening.

    I am going to start with saying that I sincerely am happy to see a Mega Man game that truly returns back to form~

    Mega Man 9 and 10 defiantly were great too, though they felt more like nostalgia pandering to some level. However MM11 plays with a new idea, and puts it to full force~ The very interesting Double Gear concept. You can get a extra boost in power or speed with their respective gears. Or you can get a boost in both and overdrive the gears for the short time. Do keep in mind that you can only use this for a short time before the system overheats. It's kinda like Metroid Prime 3's Hypermode. Be aware that the robot masters will also have a double gear system of their own.

    As for the how the game plays, it looks to play well and has a decent difficulty to it. There are plenty of difficulty levels for players of all stripes. Easy Mode for those who would like to jump into the Mega Man series. Normal for those casual gamers who want a challenge. Hard mode for those who really want a challenge. And Superhero mode for those who want to really test their skills~

    Music is alright, but nothing too special. However there is one robot master stage theme that actually really conveys the wonderful atmosphere of it's stage, and subjectively feels the most like a song to fit the classic series.


    Fuse Man
    I guess it would be too surprising that the electric robot master would have the most electrifying theme. But all jokes aside, this is a really amazing stage theme. The extra euro beat mixing really adds to the upbeat and heart pumping nature of the song~

    Other than that, the one thing many have pointed out is the odd run cycle of Mega Man himself. I mean, it's not something you'd notice unless you really pay attention to it. But that really is the only really huge gripe, other than most of the music not being too amazing. I honestly will agree a lot of the stage themes do feel forgettable. Fuse Man's stage theme being one of those odd rare exceptions. I cannot get that one out of my head~
  5. It's taken a long time of thinking about and I have found it at last. I think I have grown to enjoy her so much because of how she is presented in her debut episode. I felt something with her that other villain and characters didn't have. I felt a true sense of individuality from Chrysalis. Aside from the obvious villain troops, she felt real for me. Her personality dripping with actual passion, a desire to do as she wishes, and a mind bound by none. While what happened to Chrysalis after her defeat is up for conjecture. I do think she suffered that loss hard. And seeing her in a fallen state would of solidified it more for me. But I understand the show had to keep kid friendly. But that's why fan works for her can sometimes be so haunting to the reality of her existence afterward. And I really do love it. I am happy others have found a passion for Chrysalis. But IDK if they see here in the same light, I do.

    Nightmare Moon was alright as a villain, but was only a one shot villain at best to add emphasis to how dangerous she is. And because sister jealousy and what not.

    Discord is a villain that causes chaos without purpose. It's just causing chaos 'for the lols'.

    Chrysalis, however, felt like she had true motive in everything she did. Even if she did drag her hive to do her bidding in the process. It felt like a being I'd be happy to get to know better. I honestly could actually see things from her side in some way.

    Also I find her physical form quite interesting and beautiful. Almost as if she is part of nature itself. Which is why I always kinda felt like maybe plant life wrapped around the horn would look lovely.

    This is my thoughts on it. And it's been after a long time of mulling over why exactly that I really have a attraction to her as a character. And I think this is going to be my final answer, since I am now content with it. I really am not going to ask that anyone see it the same way. I just felt like expressing myself one last time on the matter.

    The video is nice, but dark. But the reason I bring this up is because of the certain person on this page that was disrespectful with his opinion on the matter of chrysalis and was shoving it in people's faces. You can see it for yourself in the link. It's disheartening to see people still act childish, and I get disliking chrysalis as a basis of love to hate. But this guy simply was acting like it was all you should do is hate her. The worst part is that he says it's a unpopular perspective, and maybe in some circles it maybe. But being a child and *squee!*ing at people who oppose it isn't anyway to try and make a point for your case. But this is how I feel about it.

    And if I could lay some perspective of my own. I see Chrysalis as one who has been hurting. It's unspoken pain. She and her hive are outcasted and ultimately wanted to lash out. Here take over of the royal wedding was a way to try and force things in her favor. But after defeat left her and her hive even more outcasted. I can feel for Chrysalis in that way. But my feelings do go deeper on the matter, but I'd be ranting forever.

    Also, I am aware there was episode in the more recent time that redeems the hive. But yeah.
  7. ...Hating on Logan Paul. I kid you not. Just because the dude posted a video of him making fun of a guy who committed suicide in the suicide forest. Now everyone is frickin going ape *squee!* and hating on everything he does now. I'm sure everyone has been hearing about that. Eh. It's stupid trend and bandwagoning, but it's Youtube. This kinda *squee!* happens all the time.
