    You're not getting the full game. You're getting an extremely limited version for babies.

    I stand by what I said last month.

Most popular video game franchise in the world and zero hype.

    • Can't show BDSP footage because the team developing it has never been the lead devs on a game before.
    • Can't show Legends footage because it is made by GameFreak who couldn't even make the wild area good and now they are making an entire game with a wild area 10x the size.
    • Release dates and boxart revealed through tweets because the games are in such poor states they can't show footage.

    At this point Nintendo might want to consider just delaying the release date, since they did the same thing with Animal Crossing and the new Metroid. Maybe order one of their other studios to help out (like how Monolith Soft helped out the Zelda team with BotW)..
    The only decent thing about the Legends: Arceus trailer was the music. Then again, after BotW's trailer, there is no guarentee that the trailer music is even actually representative of the game's actual soundtrack.

    BDSP still looks meh. I'm surprised that they still haven't gotten the characters to look right.

    Pokemon's main objective hasn't been about completing the Pokedex since Gen 2. Starting with Gen 3 the Pokedex is no longer presented to the player as their primary objective. Instead their objective is presented as beating the Champion.

    Pokemon began being sanitized after Gen 2. The "Humans married Pokemon" thing was in the original Japanese version of DP but it was left out in the English localization. The modern Pokemon franchise likes to pretend that the grittier tone and lore of early Pokemon doesn't exist, which is a shame.

    If there is one thing Game Freak can do well, it's curate the best creature designs to make it into the official games. Gen 8 had just as many great designs as prior generations in my book (aside from the hideously awful Cinderace and Inteleon). Drednaw, Corviknight, and Dragapult made it into my favorites list.

    Eh, I'd rate the character designs for Galar as overall bad. I hate the commercialized football team aesthetic of Galar. The sport shorts and team jerseys with logos and numbers pasted on them looks pretty awful. Only decent looking characters were Rose (too bad about the writing lol), old man Kabu, and Milo and Gordie (for having bulkier silhouettes that make them standout).

    I am aware. Hence why I said "partially"

    Also, "Hisui" is very on the nose, even for Gamefreak.

    火水 literally "Fire Water".

    Hmm, well.

    It looks like they're using the katakana for it which I guess leaves it up in the air.

    I assumed fire/water for primordial elements since the game takes place at the beginning of Pokemon history. It'd also be a play on the original Red/Blue games.

    Sidenote: the japanese website is a nightmare to navigate, they make it scroll sideways instead of up&down

    Lustrous jade would fit too with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, since another description of a valuable gem while being still in the same region.

    I guess, but it's not in the same series, so I wouldn't put too much weight on that.

    It's like trying to tie Gale of Darkness back to it's Gen 3 contemporaries.

    But they were completely different regions, while D/P/Origins are all the same exact region, while also being released within a few months of each other, so worked on at the same time basically.

    Kana only leans more to lustrous color, but I'm not japanese so i have no idea what the intended meaning is sometimes

    Curious how the Steampad already has actual hands-on videos and the Switch OLED is still nowhere to be seen.

    It's almost like Valve needs to work hard to sell their product to people, cause the software side of things will be working against them while what the Switch constitutes is a known factor, it's just a regular switch with an OLED screen.

    It continues to baffle me why people think the Steam Deck is a serious threat especially to the Switch, when Valve has absolutely fuck all to drive hardware sales with on the software side. Taking a bit out of lower end laptop market segment is about the absolute most it can do on any wider scale.

    Umm its a switch, with an OLED screen. What hands on impressions do you need? Pretty straight forward what it is and what it does.

    Steamdeck won't even reach the lifetime sales of the Vita. Comparing it to the Switch is laughable.

    Why was Hokkaido called Ezochi before it was settled by the mainland Japanese?

    A video of an OLED Switch held next to a conventional Switch is what I need. Nintendo understands this is their selling point, they offer a fake comparison on their website.

    For the software side try literally every game available for the PC but not for the Switch.
