  1. The new "Melphy" theme looks so cute. Reminds me of my stuffed animals when I was little ❤️

      It'd be cool if they worked with a dark and terryfing archetype, that would make a nice contrast of cute + nasty = profit.

      But we already have that. Fluffal, Edge Imp, and Frightfur.

      You're right, but I meant something very unrelated. Like, having Melphys working along an archetype that looks based on Magic the Gathering black cards.

  2. Tfw I outgrind a Marincess/Frog player using Cubics 🤣

  3. Found an old notebook with a yugioh story I'd written; I think I might try to continue it. I won't subject YCM to my old writings, but I think I'll rework some of the archetypes I'd had and post 'em as a thread alongside the snippets of the characters that used 'em.

  4. Listening to Eurobeat now and just chuckling at the irony of having a Shuckle avatar and listening to a song called "Speedy Speed Boy".

  5. Aww, it looks like someone took my secondary name...

      Nah, "Mr. Melon".  Tinkerer Bartholomew Melon. XD

    3. Horu Ishayuki

      Horu Ishayuki

      That's quite a name.

  6. I've been playing a lot of Ascension on mobile recently.  I'd forgotten how much fun it is.  If anyone wants to try the deckbuilding genre, I really recommend it.

  7. New card leaks have been pretty quiet lately.

  8. Happy new year, all yous fine peoples!

      How dare you!


      Assuming we are people

  9. Merry Christmas all! 

  10. SwSh's Wild Area is just Diet Dragon Quest Monsters Joker.  Change my mind.

  11. So... since I've finished SwSh, can someone explain to me what people were getting angry about?  I went into the games with as little info as possible, but I still heard a lot of negativity toward the games before I got 'em.

      Fair enough. Personally, that's not something I really care about, but I do get the frustration.

      This is gonna be a little lengthy but it's a bunch of things I'm trying to summarize very briefly, I swear xD

      The game is serviceable enough on its own if you don't look at much else, but there's a bunch of things. It started with the "no national dex" so around 500 pokemon are missing, and they said it was for high quality animations and for the work of building models from scratch, but the models are recycled on all returning pokemon they have there, and there are some good animations but most already existing ones don't really have any changes or upgrades so them lying in itself became an issue, and from there....
      At least 114 moves don't exist in that game last time I checked, but some of those include exclusive moves for pokemon that don't appear so it is sort of linked to that.
      The Exp Share can't be turned off, and some already were complaining about it when it WAS optional in the previous few games....
      It has a lot of technical issues like framerate drops, characters freezing in time when you climb ladders, pokemon and trainers pretty much teleporting in front of your sight as you move using a shorter range than other games, the textures and whatnot (you probably saw the "Ocarina of Time Tree" memes at some point, right? xD )
       That and the removal of Z moves and megas, and the reminder of other things they removed like the battle frontier and whatnot from other games is carrying over to join the discomfort.
      Their codes have been found to not be very optimized (in hilarious ways at times) but that'd be a paragraph or two on itself haha....
      They were developing a game called "Little Town Hero" at the same time as Pokemon and split their team in half, and both games came out a little lacking in content (even if you enjoyed SwSh you gotta admit it is a tad smaller than other pokemon games).
      Add to that that they have the plan to release a Pokemon game once a year from now on, like how they have been doing with S/M, US/UM, Let's go Pikachu/Eevee, and Sw/Sh. With US/UM barely being worth a DLC update in terms of new content and people already expecting GameFreak to do the same thing for SwSh....

      I'll reserve my conclusions when you add the above, but those are most of the issues I recall pretty much in a nutshell.

  12. Hello, fine Draco! It's been a while!

  13. About Pokémon SwSh...

    1. Redro


      There's already a lot I could say, but overall, I'll just say the experience has been very interesting thus far.

      However, there is one thing that I'm really sad about so far, and I think it's something that Pokémon has been building towards for a while. This game feels like it's meant to be played communally. One's success is everyone's success.

      The early Pokémon games weren't like that. Those games were solo. You felt like your character was against the world and, against all odds, managed to overcome. It makes the player feel special in a way that can't be replicated in a game where you are always reminded that other players exist.

  14. Only 10 more days of dodging leaks/spoilers..

      I don't count this as a spoiler, but if you do, apologies. 

      Of all the new Pokemon I'm really excited to see the reaction people have to a group of 4 in particular. Everything about them is just amazing.

  15. Ah, back to my good ol' Hungry Burger self!

  16. What UltimateIRS said.

  17. Mm.  Crusader Kings 3, huh?

  18. Man, I just need to level up one more time. My CONFIDENCE stat will finally be high enough to do work at a coffee shop without feeling obligated to buy anything.

  19. Hello, fine peoples!  Looks like we're back in business!!!

  20. I won't be on here a lot over the next few weeks. Finally gonna get some vacation time and I think I'ma be largely unplugged. I'll probably check daily and I'll keep updating my racing archetype on Sundays, but I won't be nearly as active.

  21. Mm... I have a thought for reinvigorating this place, but there's a lot of moving pieces...

  22. So uh, can someone run the numbers for me on this? Opponent's 'mon is paralyzed and they get a critical hit and kill me after I manage to get up 6 double teams. I just... I need to know the odds. You know, to add to my collection. (-_-) (100% base accurate move)

    1. Flame Dragon

      Flame Dragon

      Looks like +6 evasion means 1/3 attacks hit. Hitting while paralyzed is 3/4. In Gen 7 with 0 as the stage for crits you have a 1/24 chance. So that's 3/288 or about 1% to happen.

    2. Redro


      Thanks! The game is pre-Gen 7, so the chance is a bit higher, but it's still really annoying...


      I guess that's what I deserve for nicknaming that particular Pokémon "Salty", huh?

    3. Flame Dragon

      Flame Dragon

      With a name like that clearly you set yourself up.

  23. What are you peeps hoping to see at E3 this year? Personally, I just want ANY news about Age of Empires 4.

      Virtual Console being added is the only thing I want to see.

  24. Been playing a deckbuilding roguelike app called "Tavern Rumble". As generic as that name sounds, I really recommend it. It's still in beta, but it goes through updates every few weeks and it's only gotten better since I'd started.
