Black and White

Posted April 10th, 2010 at 8:54 AM by .Gamer

Really Nintendo? Really? I mean, I know you guys constantly make useless stuff like 8 versions of the Gameboy or DS, but really, black and white? I mean, Tangrowth, Rhyperior, Electivire and all the other horrible stuff you graced us with in Generation 4 (Bullet Punch Scizor, I'm looking at you and Outrage Mence), and now you go with this? I mean, come on. This is terrible in every sense of the word. God. I mean, resorting to remakes was one thing, but I mean, there is a color wheel for Christ's sake. Just go there and toss darts.

To Nintendo:

    Agreed. Worst names ever. Gonna spark some stuff in the US? I do think so. Plus it'll be even worse being a Pokemon fan with Black and White. It's ridiculous.

    ^ There have been like... 4 screenshots released. How on EARTH is that enough to say you aren't going to buy it? D: I could understand if the more recent games have disillusioned you with the games entirely so nothing interests you, but that's not the screenshots convincing you, that's the games...

    I'm not to happy with the names, but, hey, they're better than "HeartGold" and "SoulSilver" or "FireRed" and "LeafGreen" by a longshot.

    The names are simple and the Japanese logos are hot, I like them. Maybe they aren't the best, but they are better than a lot of other names that could have been used.

    I'm not judging the games yet as all I've got is a few screen shots. Though, the screen shots show the graphics have been given a change, which I like from what is seen, but still I need more. Protagonists, well, I don't know if I like them or not yet. :\ Just have to keep waiting until more is shown and more details is given is all.

    I don't think they are BAD because they are Black and White, I just prefer color. :<

    I like it. Plus, for all you know, Nintendo might change a few things before they release it.

    At least they didn't go with Pokemon Beige, Carmine and SPECIAL EDITION Alizarin!

    Personally I think Black & White were the best names of the franchise.

    Meh, I think the names are OK. They're, like, sexy. :D Although I can almost see Nintendo America doing something stupid like changing the names to avoid problems.

    But seriously, guys, shouldn't you have gotten over all of that black/white stuff by the 80s, at least? @_@

    Also, I love what they're doing in those screenshots. They're so cool, and I honestly cannot wait, though it'll probably be mid-2011 by the time we get them in NZ.

    I think the names are wonderful.

    America's just making a big useless deal over it because we have nothing better to do with our time.

    WEEEEEEEEEEEEE active blog.

    Too clarify: I'm mostly just worried about seeing more pokemon that resemble the badness that is Rhyperior.

    And, tbph, black and white are super plain. Pokemon Topaz and Amethyst or something would have been cooler imo.

    Maybe I am being too quick to judge but the girl sprite in the screenies are kinda ew.

    I really don't like these names, it screams problems down the road. I too can see Nintendo of America changing the names.

    Newsflash: they're not called negro black or cracker white, they're just black and white, the opposites of the color spectrum. Considering this a problem is ridiculous.

    How does it "scream" problems? Stop overreacting to something as insignificant as game titles. :| Ya'know, it's sad that people take something like simple terms such as "black" and "white" and blow them way out of their intentions.

    Oh look, no colors.

    @ Sydian, maybe it'd be a problem if they were called Confederate and Union versions, but oh wait, they're not.

    Yeah, I don't see any problems down the road. The fact that, like BB said, people can take two simple colours and make them somewhat of a problem is just lame. Shows how far we've actually advanced in racism since the earlier years.
