        I'm doing well and hope that the same goes for you.

        There is something I need to ask you. A PM would be best.

        Thanks for your review from a couple of weeks ago. There is a new chapter now.

        I'll read your fanfic soon, but probably not all at once.

      I read what you have so far and I like it! I like that it features Ethan, Lyra, and Kris. I also like that there's not much focus on battles, since that's pretty much the bread and butter of the games and anime. I look forward to the updates!

      I think I can rest easy now. It looks like the main reason there were so many USUM shills before is because of Game Freak's lies regarding how different the games were going to be. After the datamine, I'm seeing a different side to people.
      1. Scarftail
        Scarftail
        Combined with how late these games are since the 3DS' launch and the Pokemon Go/anniversary craze being over, we shouldn't expect to see these games sell 7 million units like before. I'd lose a lot of faith if that did in fact happen. I mean, they're arguably worse than Emerald and Platinum.

        I realize I should just be treating this year like a break year, but the problem is that there may be yet another break year...

        I don't trust the hardcore fans (forum goers) not to buy the games, anyway. We'll see about the casual base.

        I've actually seen Game Freak claim that USUM were designed to be an entry point for people who rediscovered the series via Go. I can't speak for those fans, but I'd think the games feeling samey was one of the reasons they lost interest years ago.

      Hello. Something caught my attention.

      "Regarding the story, is it a sequel or an alternate narrative?

      Shigeru Ohmori: These new versions are not a sequel like Black 2 and White 2. They are what we call an "enhanced version", just like the Emerald and Platinum versions in past generations."

        Ishihara recently admitted that he told Nintendo the Switch would fail. Only after the initial success did he come around (around April) and Masuda probably acted the same way.

        I don't think it will be a Generation VII game anymore, and they will probably wait till 2019 (they didn't promise 2018). What I have in mind is a new genetation that starts in Kanto with an initial set of new Pokemon, and moves onto the new region a year or two later with even more Pokemon.

        My main reason for considering this is that I'd find it odd if the Lillie foreshadowing turned out to be for 2021 sequels or nothing at all. It wasn't quite as blatant as the Strange Souvenir, but it was pretty close.

        Also, I don't think that most fans are dying to see a new region; they're just expecting it based on the pattern. Likewise, designing a new region every 3 years is probably not an easy thing to do. Using an existing map should be quite a bit easier, especially when Game Freak live in Tokyo. And if new Pokemon and some mechanics were added, would there be less excitement for such sequels than for XY-like games?

        The Lillie foreshadowing could be referring to USUM. A poster and a potential leak are implying she's going to become a Trainer in those games, even if briefly. Also, the fact that Lusamine might still be a factor in the post-game makes me think she might not get poisoned to need to go to Kanto with Lillie to be tended to.

        Since we're at the bottom of the barrel this year, I don't care when Red/Green sequels might happen basically as long as they replace enhanced versions in the next generation. Especially if Switch Pokemon games cost $60.

        I don't see how that would count as foreshadowing, since Lillie hasn't been to Kanto and she is a beginning trainer at best.

        I predict that Lusamine will go to Kanto to hunt Giovanni down, or maybe he'll fuse her with Nihilego, but we'll see. Either way, I'm pretty sure that SM are the "canon" games as far as inter-generation connections go.

      I saw the executions and most notable scenes, but read the scripts first. (Since that's what was leaked first.) To be honest, the fake spoilers going around made for a much more entertaining story than the real thing. But the meta twist makes for good fanfic ideas.

        The fake spoilers were so fun. But yeah, the gameplay seems like a main draw. But honestly, I'd rather get 2, since it has good gameplay on top of having my favorite DR characters.

        I like the V3 cast the best. Namely Shuichi, Kaede, Kaito, Maki and especially Kokichi.

        Monomi was the best part of 2 for me.

      I followed the Something Awful Let's Plays, then moved on to other Let's Pays and summaries. I'm all caught up on spoilers for DRV3, and I've seen all the anime. Did you like the anime, btw?

      I'm not too big on the Telltale TWD series, but looking up S;G 0, I'm really loving the aesthetics. If I can't get this game, I'll at least try and follow playthroughs or something. It looks really good.
      1. Unown Seer
        Unown Seer
        I got spoiled (by me, lol) on the first chapter and ending for both 2 and V3. I still had four chapters to look forward to, so did you watch each playthrough fully?

        I didn't finish watching the adaptation of the first game. As is usually the case for visual novel adaptations, the plot is heavily condensed.

        I didn't like 3 at all. To be honest, the Ultimate Despair lore is the weakest part of the games and 3 was all about it. I'd been hoping to see the D2 kids actually act as Ultimate Despairs, but that never happened. The brainwash plot device was disappointing, too, because it meant that the D2 kids were squeaky clean.

        I really like V3's meta twist. I kind of want to see what Shuichi and Maki are going to do next. Maybe there will be a light novel about that.

        There is also Chaos;Child which is going to be released next Tuesday. It's part of the same world as Steins;Gate. The moe girls are annoying to look at, but the positive reviews have lured me into the web of delusions (the central theme of the game).

      Yeah, I'd definitely like to get DR. I follow the games, but never played them. Zero Escape sounds like a blast, though.
      1. Unown Seer
        Unown Seer
        How do you follow the games? YouTube? Just wondering how much you know about them.

        There is also Steins;Gate if you haven't watched the anime, and there is a related game called Steins;Gate 0. I'm probably just telling you about stuff you know...

        Also the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead.

        Glad to have helped.

        Now, the games I'd recommend are the Danganronpa and Zero Escape series. The latter is available between the DS and 3DS, but unless you've already played them, it makes much more sense to get the Vita versions for the better graphics, and more importantly, the bundle of the first two games (Nonary Games) which adds voice acting and fixes a big design flaw of the first game (999).

        Danganronpa takes itself less seriously, but I get the feeling that it would appeal to you more. Both series are dark, but Danganronpa has a lot of comedy alongside the hope vs. despair theme. I prefer Zero Escape due to its twists resonating with me far more, and some really emotional moments.

      Regarding on your fanfic, although I appreciate your notification, but I guess such kind of traditional game-verse journey fic is just not my cup of tea. Although the beginning so far is not bad, but I would suggest to have a bit more originality especially expand the worldbuilding beyond just what the game had already provided.

        But I am exploring Johto and its lore via Kris' perspective, and I'd argue that I do that in an original way if you read Chapter 2.

        Ernest's storyline is completely original, so I don't understand your point. The entire idea of two perspectives is tying two different eras together.

        Finally, most fans on BMGf and other forums have at least played GS or HGSS. Crystal has some differences, but not to the point that anyone should be confused.

        Ernest side is fine, I'm just not very fond of Kris side as it had a vibe of replicating the game's story. But I'll pass it over for now because it is still the beginning. Let's see what you can do for the first major plot line.

        And last bit. What you said at last is contradicting what you said in the fic thread:
        "Not to mention that Crystal is an old game and I don't expect every reader to be familiar with its more obscure aspects"
        That's why I suggest write your fic in a way that can be understandable even for the ones that haven't played Crystal, or even for the ones that haven't played any Pokemon games for years.
        Oct 20, 2017
      4. Unown Seer
        Unown Seer
        It isn't contradictory because I wad referring to the opening, which depicts an event that never happened in the game itself. And the prologue explains my interpretation.

        Kris' side follows Ethan's story, so the only events borrowed from the game... are the legendary encounters with a twist. Other than that, Kris has a very different goal than what we see in any game.

        Anyway, it's okay if the fanfic simply isn't your cup of tea just because.

      You do notice I changed my username, do you? But it is in fact "CrystaI" (The last letter is the capitalized "i", not "l"). So if you trying to mention me in the post, I won't receive notice if you typed "l" instead of the capitalized "i".

        I wanted to change my username to "Crystal" (the one with "l"), but unfortunately that had already used by some ghost user 7 years ago which never logged in since the day of registration. So I had no choice but to use a different choice. I know it is a bit confusing, but please bare with it.
        BTW, I'll translate that Shudo's blog when I have time. Sorry I'll be busy with RL during the Easter holiday. Also, Happy Easter!

        The biggest funny moment is the elevator joke. I assume you've seen it? Also, Seven and Lotus' antics are brilliant with voices. I don't see why anything would be funnier without voices.

        The biggest difference gameplay-wise is the lack of a second screen, so the game's perspective shifts depending on the player's preference. It still works quite well for the Sudoku climax, except that puzzle is different now for some reason.

        To be honest, I watched the true ending on YouTube because for some reason I couldn't get the right flag to proceed in the Safe ending (rather than the Knife ending). Really frustrating.

        I've just checked for you, and it turns out that ZTD was on sale just two weeks ago. Would you have bought it for $24?
