Overtracked, another game that's not shipping anymore yet keeps getting sales according to VGC.

Not your hands, Hostage. Hands as an objective whole. Saying that one (of the games) is better than the other IS stupid, and pretty childish.

NolSinkler posted 27/06/2009, 10:34
Goodness they are the same game, the only difference between either one is the name and a few Pokemon. To say that one is better than another is like saying that that the right hand is superior to the left hand because more people use it, or vice versa. It's childish.

Nothing more than the opinion of someone who lives behind retro-tinted glasses, if there only fifteen types in this game you'd love it.

blaydcor posted 27/03/2009, 04:40
It is significant if you are a competitive battler. If you don't feel like pouring 500 hours into the game so you can beat random Asians online, it does not make it any more fun whatsoever.

Only in your opinion; if you think that lowly of the significance of the switch then that just tells us that you haven't been paying attention to the series for the last two years.

blaydcor posted 21/03/2009, 11:43
Doing a minor change to how special/non-special attacks are decided does not do much to affect the overall gameplay experience. It affects strategy on a micro level that will improve the game for nobody but highly competitive fanatics.

@SmokedHostage Thank god, I thought I was the only one who didn't like R/B/G/

@blaydcor Sheesh, butt-hurt much? If you think a complete reworking of the move mechanics is a cosmetic whistle then that tells us your more than a little bit dense; the only part of the games that hasn't aged well is the story and that's irrelevant since this is primarily a one-on-one multilayer to begin with.

blaydcor posted 05/03/2009, 07:54
@Smoked Hostage, I'm still playing the same game I played 10 years ago, with a bunch of minor bells and whistles and cosmetic varnish. That and a hell of a lot more Pokemon, which doesn't really spice up the aging gameplay too much. I played thousands of hours of Pokemon when I was kid; going on a bland journey for 8 badges for the 30th time has just lost it's edge.

@SmokedHostage: To be honest, as much as I find R/B/Y very nostalgic...

I agree with you. R/B/Y is overrated and isn't even that great (it aged). D/P, G/S/C and FR/LG for the win.

MontanaHatchet posted 06/02/2009, 04:16
SmokedHostage, I guess those could be the only possible reasons, right? You don't have to be blinded by nostalgia to not enjoy this game. The battle system was fun 10 years ago but it's getting a bit old now.

Well, I think that Pokémon will never get old. Ever. It's a relatively easy game, but still challenging. And it's fun, and it has expanded to so many places, TGC, toys, plushies, spinoff games, TV, the big screen, and I think this helps keep the franchise going^^,

Pretty amazing sales. The only reason I would want the sales to go down is so they release the much rumored "Platinum" (or whatever element ) version which is basically like the "Emerald" of this gen (with some added features and ability to get all of the legendaries). With sales like this it might be until 2009 until that is announced.
