Maybe I can, maybe I can't. It's more of a warm-up run, really; also a prequel to my planned run that is, in fact, in motion right now on my DS. Guess how lucky I am. I got a female timid Serene Grace Togepi from the Mystery Egg. Isn't that like the epitome of hax?

How about, without RNGing, finding a female, Bold Eevee (with plans to evolve it into Vaporeon) in the wild the first time you encounter an Eevee? (Or, similarly, finding a female (well, I wanted a female XD), Bold Solosis with Magic Guard in the wild after a couple tries.)

Gotta love lady luck, sometimes~

I think the people who are most lucky are those who encounter a shiny with not only a good nature, but a good Ability (if it has multiple ones) and good IVs as well. Without RNGing, of course. (Or, in the case of breeding, without using certain methods that make most the aforementioned attributes more likely.)

When it comes to making epic mons, I just sav. Yeah, like the fact that I have mostly cartridges could stop me! Owning a ROM is legal if you have bought a cartridge of the same game.

I have no idea what RNGing even is. All I know is that its some competitive battling thing.

It's not necessarily for competitive battling, though people do use it for such. For the most part, RNGing is used to get a good IV spread, nature, ability, and/or shininess on a Pokemon.

I think it has to do with timing and seeds and stuff, but I'm not completely sure since I've tried and failed at it XD; You need to be able to know your Secret ID, too, else you can't do it.

Sounds complicated.
And not worth it, imo.

I got, like, halfway through Homestuck. (At least, it was halfway last I read it XD) The only webcomics I look at regularly are Brawl in the Family and VGCats. ...Though, Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and Mokepon are quite interesting, too...

There is a Homestuck fanclub somewhere in the vicinity, mantained by Fable!

Worth a check!

All I think of when I see or hear "Fruit Ninja" is how WarioWare Touched did it first.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnr3Jn4STDE&feature=player_detailpage#t=341s

I guess whoever made that game was really counting on the fact that most people were either unfamiliar with or forgotten most of WarioWare. And those lucky sons of guns were right I guess. It seems too similar in a lot of ways for it to be a coincedence to me, but hey, I can't say I haven't been inspired by WarioWare myself.

The first Wario Ware was released in, what, 2002? Holy crud, am I that old now? :( Ok, found out it was 2003. I'm slightly less old.

There's a wealth of microgames ripe for expansion in that series, I'll give it that. I still just like to give credit where it's due, and that goes for more than just somebody's art. Granted, the developers are never going to say "yeah, we totally lifted this idea from elsewhere" but it'd be nice if they paid some homage, or said that it was a series they were inspired by in high school or something. I'd do it, anyway. I kind of like to direct people to games from older days, though. It's not like they're still in active competition.

These days there is such an immense negative attitude against "rip offs" though. If any well-known game is similar in any department to a previous game, and people notice it or hear about it, it's immediately going to be labelled as a ripoff or some other stupid crap like that.

So really, pretending your product is absolutely and completely original (which nothing is in the game market) IS the best thing to do in many cases. Even if it looks obtuse.

Yeah, I thought about that myself. There really isn't a whole lot of original ideas, or at least they don't come by easy. I was mostly considering the difference between a genre, like platformer, vs the gameplay, which can vary if you've got ingenuity (and becomes a carbon copy of something else if you don't). I'd hope most people would know the difference out there, but then again we live in a world where the rating system for games doesn't make logical sense anymore.

Having said that, there's still room. Flower is a game unlike anything I've ever played before or after. There might be something I missed, but I kind of feel like all that's left is creating more artistic games like that. Honestly, I'd be happiest if I could work on something like that, or even design it. :) Problem is, MAN is it hard to try an make a game for art's sake work, even just as a bulletpointed list. Indie games in general, the good innovative ones, anyway, seem to do their darndest to break boundaries. I'd go indie if it wasn't for the fact that student loans are very, very real. And when I get done, it's gonna get even realer.

A couple of friends and I are casually working on a kind of side-scrolling "labyrinth" game for Android. Certainly not original, but it's fun practice.
