Pokemon Sweet 2th Part Two

Get Pokemon 2th Here!

Remember these rules.

1. If it faints, it’s dead and as it’s a corpse it can not longer battle. 

2. All pokesweets must be nicknamed 

3. Catch only the first pokesweet on every route. You cannot catch duplicates of a species. If you run into the same pokesweet on a route, keep searching until you find a new one. If there’s nothing new, touch luck. If it faints when you try to catch it, that’s it and you don’t get a pokesweet for that route. There is one exception–if I encounter a shiny, I can catch it. I cannot catch legendaries no matter what. If the game requires I catch one, it’s to be boxed and not used.

Now let’s actually start the game…

VA-11 HALL-A

I made a video showing off the first half hour of VA-11 HALL-A because it’s a great game and I love it. VA-11 HALL-A is a cyberpunk visual novel where you play Jill, a bartender in Glitch City trying to make rent, and the writing as well as all the little details is amazing. 10/10 game, would serve drinks again.

My Stardew Valley Experience

Back when Stardew Valley came out in February, a lot of people shared their experiences on it. It was a phenomenon that swept the internet. I went into my local game shop that so happens to play twitch streams, and there was Stardew Valley streaming on the tv. And then there was a lot of youtube videos about it. The general consensus is Stardew Valley is pretty great. I agree. It’s a lot like the Harvest Moon game I’ve wanted for a long time. I love Harvest Moon, but the series has gotten too compliant with it’s success and the games these days lack something that Stardew Valley has. But I’m not going to sit here and talk about how awesome a game Stardew Valley is because I’m covering old ground. What I am going to talk about is that I love modding Stardew Valley just as much as playing it.

The Bard’s Tale and I

There have been a lot of exciting kickstarters lately. Yooka-Laylee and Bloodstained are the biggest ones.  The one I’m most excited about is inXile’s The Bard’s Tale IV. Having already done the well-received Wasteland 2, they’ve moved on to remake this classic game as well..

Anyone who has grown up with videogames can usually quote videogames of their childhood. Almost everyone names Mario and Zelda and the whole Nintendo family. For me, it was The Bard’s Tale.

Why Pokemon Shuffle Doesn’t Work For Me

Pokémon Shuffle was released forever ago. February 18th to be exact. When it came out, I ignored it, stuck in my bias that it was Free Too Play garbage, and I had tons of other stuff to play. My mom and sister checked it out, and they seemed really into it, so around April or May I decided to give it a try.

Pokemon Shuffle is a match three puzzle game with pokemon. You match pokemon to beat the pokemon you’re fighting in a certain turn limit who will put obstacles in your way, and then you try to catch it. It’s really simple and lots of fun. But there’s a slight issue which divides people on whether it’s a good game or not. Each time you enter battle, it costs a heart. Hearts are regenerated every thirty minutes, and you can accumulate up to five. Which is kinda dumb when each match lasts about 30 seconds. You can buy crystals, which gives you more hearts, although you can earn a small amount of crystals in game. I’ve rarely heard of people spending money on the game, most players just play every two and a half hours and don’t spend a dime.  People who play that way are quick to lash out at those who criticize the system, saying that not wanting to play that way is impatient.

Pokemon Shuffle breaks my heart. I love the gameplay. But it doesn’t work for me. I’m a person who has a full time job, a hour drive to said full time job, and lots of socializing to do outside that full time job. Usually the way I play video games is a few hours a few times a week, and a game that’s wants to be babysat like a Tamogotchi is not going to cut it. I’m probably playing less then ten minutes all week. Yes, I could buy crystals, but the amount of money I would be shelling out would be way too much compared to what playtime I would be getting because the rate isn’t that good, and there isn’t a cap.

I don’t think Pokemon Shuffle is utter garbage though, I think there’s definitely a way to play it and enjoy it, it just doesn’t work for me. I don’t think the argument that everyone who doesn’t like Pokemon Shuffle hearts system is impatient is valid either. If you’re someone who doesn’t play videogames that often, it is really underwhelming. Meanwhile, I’ll probably pick up Pokemon Battle Trozei, which is only $7.99, and will fit much better to my playstyle as well as play Pokemon Rumble World (which I will point out that I actually spent money on compared to Pokemon.

Madoka Magica Online is Surprisingly Fun

Madoka Magica is anime which has been marketed beyond the point of death. At this point, it may be looking at being in the league with Evangelion in terms of marketing. So it’s hardly surprisingly that it has a freemium online game, which at this point is now open to everyone.

The game, despite it’s simple format, is actually quite addictive and a lot of fun.

This is my character. She is really damn cute. Any dissenters will be cut into little pieces.

The Rest of the 12 Days of Christmas

On the 7th Day of Christmas, I got seven my little ponies, six friends and their princess. What started on 4chan would spread to the rest of the internet , and became a phenomenon noticed even by the outside world. Recently, The Wall Street Journal struggled to describe bronies on the front page of one of their sections.

I like Derpyhooves

On Day 8, I got 8 initial bachelors and bachelorettes. While everyone else took an arrow to a knee, I checked out the newest Harvest Moon and gave up adventuring for farming. Bitches love farms. While reviews are mixed, it’s my favorite Harvest Moon game yet.

On the Ninth Day of Christmas I got a magnitude 9.0 earthquake. I was woken up by my mother, shocked to hear about the earthquake which hit Japan and the tsunami which followed. The media enjoyed hyping up the fear of a nuclear meltdown in Japan as nuclear plants were hit hard.  Everyone banned together from the blogging community to the government to send aid to Japan during this time.

Yesterday, they were hit by a 7.0 earthquake, but seem to be okay.

On the tenth day of Christmas, I got the tenth episode of Madoka. The tenth episode not only answered the mystery behind Homura, but was, by itself, a fantastic and moving episode which demonstrated just how much could be done in only about 23 minutes. In my opinion, the episode is just as memorable as the series itself.

It would also be last episode the anime community would see for months.

On the 11 Day of Christmas, I got 2011 ending with two bills by my very own government to limit our internet use. An upsetting move, it made transparent how corrupted Congress is, with the fact that most of the country is against the bill and it violates the first amendment, but with two big industries pushing for it, it’s an uphill battle to keep it from passing. I think it was Conan who said that messing with a country’s internet is the stupidest thing you can do back in 2010 or 2011. People will put up with endless shit until you threaten their ability to play Angry Birds.

The current argument is everyone against the bill is a pirate, but when that means accusing the Human Rights Committee of being a pirate, your argument falls a little short.

With the bills fate still in limbo, 2012 opens up to a year with political drama (and not the lulzy kind from the Republican nomination race) in the air. Congress is the one who needs to be convinced, as even if the president vetoes it, a veto can be overturned.

On the 12 Days of Christmas, I got 12 people fighting to the death. Future Diary is an interesting show in that it constantly gives the finger to logic, but everything is so over the top and awesome, it makes it forgivable. It’s a dark show, but I enjoy that this focuses more on having fun with the premise. In a weird way, I wish more shows didn’t take themselves seriously, as this one does, yet still focused on delivery an entertaining product.
