    Personally, I think Nintendo need them more. It would definitely encourage/force fans of Atlus games to buy Nintendo, and would bring more attention over to the Wii U. That said, I can definitely see Sony giving it a shot, (although they could quite easily be outbid by a few bigger companies) and it would encourage me to get a PS4 eventually.

    New question: Who don't you want to buy Atlus?

    Microsoft is one of the companies that I definitely don't want Atlus to be bought buy. Mainly because of what they did to Rare. Who do you think would be the best fit for Atlus?

    Yep. I think Nintendo buying Atlus would be a great buy, and considering all of the promotion they've been doing for SMT IV, I wouldn't say its unlikely. But the debates over this are crazy. If you look at the comments under any news article related to this, The Sony and Nintendo fanboys are in a huge war...

    1. Mines Platinum. It improved everything that was wrong with diamond and pearl like the non-existent fire types over the course of the game, actually being able to catch the pre-evos/evo's of pokemon introduced in D/P and the slower surfing.

    2. I'm in a tie between Awakening and Blazing Sword. Awakening has so much stuff to do in it, Anna's first playable appearance and the fact that I'm probably going to be playing it for years to come. But Blazing sword is also a fantastic game. So idk

    I mostly read Awkward Zombie and Brawl in the Family
    I've been reading Awkward Zombie for quite a while now, and I really enjoy Katie's work. Also, I found out about Brawl in the Family a couple of days ago and I can honestly say that while reading the Waluigi comics I have laughed the hardest I ever have. Also, the non-Waluigi stuff is awesome as well, like How the King stole Christmas and The Scrooge/Mario one.

    Since we haven't talked in a while, i've thought up three questions to ask you.

    1. What is your favourite Pokemon game, and why?

    2. What's your favourite Fire Emblem game, and why?

    3. Do you read any webcomics?

    Red/Blue's sales? I doubt it. That was too much of an "event" and I don't think it'll ever be duplicated, much less surpassed. It's just that for a while there, Pokemon wasn't just a game - it was that generation's Hula Hoop.

    I'd say though that Gold/Silver's critical acclaim was already surpassed by Crystal, and it could be argued that it's been surpassed at least a couple of times since then, already, with Emerald and B2W2. That illustrates the problem with "critical acclaim" though. Is it measured by sheer number of positive reactions or by the ratio of positive to negative? Do you only count "reputable" critics like metasites or do you count posters on message boards, even knowing that the 47 criticisms/compliments posted under 47 different accounts on a message board could still all come from one disturbed shut-in in a basement somewhere?

    How would you rank the "acclaim" of RSE? The Hoenn games get a LOT of heat, particularly on /vp/, yet on pretty much every "favorite gen" or "favorite region" poll I see, they're no worse than third and often second or even first. So obviously a lot of people love those games, and the criticism they get is more notable for being loudly repeated than for being widespread. Or, similarly, look at the Unova games. For every poster who talks about how much they love the games/region/dex/etc., there's another poster who just goes, "RAARGH! ICECREAMCONETRASHBAGOVERDESIGNEDPIECEOFCRAPLINEARHAND-HOLDING!!!1!1"

    So which counts more toward "acclaim?"

    Personally, I'd say that G/S's critical acclaim has already been surpassed, and rightly so, and I certainly hope it'll be surpassed again, and repeatedly.

    Hey Pinkie!

    That's interesting trivia...also another reason I'm guessing they cut them out is because of space constraints. I heard the creator of Pokemon barely had space to sneak Mew in.

    Sorry, Ima bit unfamiliar with that. I watched my sis play the game and I suddenly loved Roxie! She is like me in so many ways.

    As I said, they've been fixed. However, as I said before, these fixes alone and the small changes between each game are not enough to make for full-blown sequels. Those technical issues are hardly game breakers, and they don't destroy the experiences on their own, nor do the fixes alone make the later games better. A game is more than just technicalities, and those are only a few problems. This is why so many people can and have played Pokemon GSC without having played them when they came out. Newer, younger gamers who didn't play from the beginning, who started from DPP or BW.

    I'm against bias, and I only wear nostalgia goggles when it's needed, but I've examined the games from a critical point of view, and they're still solid. If you let a few problems take precedence over the solid parts of a game then you're just trying not to like it. Again, those are a problems, but they're hardly big problems. They aren't game breakers, and just because some people don't care doesn't mean that the fanbase is broken. It'd be broken if they wanted that stuff back, but they don't. It'd be broken if they said that they games were worse than their modern contemporaries because of those issues alone. All games have flaws, and if those are the only flaws, not all of which I consider flaws...well, I don't think it should be so hard to see why it has such acclaim.

    Of course, there are others. There are other problems, but I've already explained why people like RBY/GSC so much. Maybe they're not the best games in the series, but as an original and as a sequel to RBY respectively, they deserved the most acclaim for what they did (and they, especially GSC, still do things that the modern games don't). You can accuse it of being a case of nostalgia goggles and ignorant fandom all you want, but there's more to their popularity than just their technical flaws. That's why even non-pokemon fans enjoy them. The only thing that I think is "broken" about the fandom is that they don't demand more, that they've been so okay with more of the same for years. People have left the franchise for that reason. I almost left the franchise for that reason. It's not about the fanbase or nostalgia.

    Though, when you think about it, XY's acclaim doesn't mean a thing. Main pokemon games always get massive appeal, and the chance that the acclaim for XY will reach that of the 13 year old GSC is...not unlikely. Actually, Pokemon games have reached it before. Many times. By many reviewers. It's not a new thing, the main Pokemon games always get massive acclaim and always appear of "Best Of System" lists. The games just have a lot of fans, and that's a testament to the fact that people like the games for their merit, not because they're classics or nostalgic. And the merit is what matters, the merit is the reason I looked at BW2 and started to realize that they care again, and the merit is the reason that I'm looking forward to XY. There wasn't a massive amount for change, but they're changing anyway. They're working to make the sequels feel like sequels...and that's really all I could ask for from them.

    As far as sales are concerned, RBY is...a special case. First Gen Pokemon had 6 games. Six games. There was Red (Japan), Green (Japan), Blue (Japan), Red, Blue, and Yellow. Now, let's pair this with the fact that, at the time, Pokemon was THE thing. It was the talk of the town. Kids everywhere watched the show, and collected the toys. Its popularity was unfounded, with kids often buying both versions and the third (or fourth) version. Now, let's go further with that. Piracy wasn't big back then, at all. It happened, but it wasn't as easy or seamless as it is now. It was because of this popularity that GSC sold so well, but with this it is understandable why GSC, which is often considered the more popular of the two, sold less (though not by too much).

    Nowadays Pokemon is popular, but not nearly as popular as it was at the beginning. A lot of the kids who liked it when they were younger grew up and stopped liking pokemon or games altogether, and the next generation generation of kids weren't as taken by it as the first. The chance that any Pokemon game's sales would reach RBGY are pretty close to zero, because the factors are too extraordinaire.

I'm dealing with a difficult choice that would affect my time at my new university. There's another math class I'm suppose to take, called MATH 413, in order to complete my major, but it's only available every odd year during Spring semester. My adviser never told me about this class, only recently by my Advanced Calculus professor, nor was it listed with the other math classes during my registration two weeks ago. Now I have to crash that class by Tuesday afternoon in order to add it to my schedule....

If you're a theme park enthusiast, then you'll probably know that Selfie Sticks are becoming all the rage these days, to the point they're being wrongfully used by people during rides and shows. Not only do they bring a nuisance to other guests trying to have a wonderful time, they also bring a huge risk factor to both other guests and the owner using it. It's becoming a major concern for fellow ethusiasts, so they're preaching for these parks to ban these items for the safety of these tourists....

I seem to be having some bad luck when trying to buy Majora's Mask-related limited editions. When it was announced that Majora's Mask 3D was getting a limited edition Skull Kid figure, I had to Gamespot the day after to order it, only until I was informed that they were out of stock. Then when it was announced that the New 3DS is getting a Majora's Mask theme, I head towards Gamestop at the time it opened and tried to order it. The employee was having trouble getting my order on the computer due...

Yesterday, during my trip to Palm Desert, my brother and I have been on a hunt for some amiibos. So far, he's got Mario and Link and pre-ordered Sonic a while back, and I've got DK, Luigi, and Samus. However, he's searching for a Fox and Captain Falcon amiibo, while I was searching for Little Mac and the rumored discontinued amiibos (Marth, Villager, Wii Fit Trainer). We've checked every Gamestop we've came across, and still no luck finding them. If anyone suggests a much easier way to find these...

I'm setting my mind to rant mode, but here's what ticks me off about Hoenn's Elite Four. In ORAS, the trainers at Victory Road were using Pokémon not native to Hoenn, and one of the NPCs at Ever Grande City said that the Elite Four not only use Hoenn-native Pokémon, but also non-native Pokémon. This raised me hope that Game Freak have fixed a major problem with the original RSE, being the lack of type diversity resulting in poor roster lineups for gym leaders and the Elite Four. It was then my...
