Half the stuff people spout in that forum is unjustified. Except for HG/SS girl vs. Kris. That's mostly justified.

I mean, weathervanes and Friendly Shop signs? If you try to make a game look more realistic, you wouldn't keep every single building looking so square and every paddock look plain, would you? New Bark Town, where the winds of new beginnings blow! I mean, you don't think those weathervanes add character to what would otherwise be just some boring town?

Oh, and why would GameFreak make the game 1:1 with the originals? Why do people blast the game at the very sight of some maps not even BEING 1:1? When was originality such an important thing? If you want to get your nostalgia gears running, go back to your damned Game Boy Colors. Oh, wait.

Also, Dogasu's opinions on HG/SS sound so right:

Well, there's the whole Heart Gold and Soul Silver announcement, which seems to have everyone except me creaming their pants. Because,'s basically going to be DPP set in Jouto. Whoop-de-freakin'-doo. While I completely understand the arguments for this game existing (the save batteries in the old games no longer work, there's a generation of kids who weren't around when those first games came out, etc.), what I don't understand why people are acting like this is game of the year stuff or something. It's a REMAKE, people; save your excitement for any number of the other good, new games coming out this year.
Dogasu @ 23:39 JST -- I had this idea for a Photoshop that would perfectly capture the way I feel about the fans' reactions to the GS remakes. I think it's pretty obvious who's who in this picture. The fact that this game is getting all the hype that it's been getting is mind boggling, but that's the fandom for ya.
Even though I'm excited for remakes too - guess why? Because I'm bored with the current set of games I'm playing. I need something new - remake or not.

Also to those who track any of my blog posts, you'll know what I mean when I say the clouds are back. :>
