I love how this thread is over 150` with no comments. XD

Pokemon is a cool game/idea folks.

If you play it to its depths, there's probably not a more 'hardcore' game out there. Nothing to be ashamed of if you like it. No reason to be a jerk about it if you don't.

Just because the little critters are designed in a light hearted way, and there is no blood doesn't make it a kids game. It's a game for everyone to play and enjoy at the level that they individually are ready for.

I'm excited about X and Y, 3D, the new typing, the ability to ride pokemon, etc. It's gonna be great!

Yeah, only really a few years ago did I realise the true depths it goes to via a friend. When he first told me about stuff like Smogon Strategies I didn't believe him...And consequently got my ass kicked.

And yet the game is still infinitely playable by children. I think it really hits a sweet spot very little else has managed.

I still haven't got a 3DS, though I'll definitely be getting one for these games.

Why are you going off about 'haters' when you're the first comment? Are you TRYING to stir something up? How often do you ACTUALLY see people attacking Pokemon as a strictly kid's game?

TruthbeTold1171d ago

When I made the comment, this story was at 160 degrees with no comments.

It's a common theme with Pokemon threads.

A lot of people like Pokemon, but apparently have to be afraid that they do because the negative comments always pop up.

I commented on that. I set the tone. I didn't use the word 'haters' at all, as I was careful with my wording.

In fact, there was no negativity here at all until you came in 'stirring something up'.

Good grief. What is your problem?

SilentNegotiator1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

It is NOT a "common theme" in Pokemon threads. Not on N4G. Pokemon article comment sections are overwhelmingly positive. N4G likes pokemon.

You get some comments about the newer pokemon DESIGNS a lot, but not negative comments about the games themselves.

"Good grief. What is your problem?"

People who OPEN up comment threads to negative backlash by going into defensive mode where there's no need.

You could have just said "I love pokemon; it's great that people of all ages enjoy pokemon. I'm excited about X and Y, 3D, the new typing, the ability to ride pokemon, etc. It's gonna be great!" instead of ranting about haters that aren't there. It's like going into an Uncharted article and starting with a comment that goes on about how people say that it's not for everyone and there's 'no reason to be a jerk' about it.

There is a single MILDLY negative comment about "nickel and diming experiences", but it's from a person that also first said "Gonna be sweet"

RbwNjaFurret1170d ago (Edited 1170d ago )

Really? I see it on literally every Pokémon article I think I've ever read. Where have you been? :P

HexxedAvenger1171d ago

I sure can't wait for this game! I'm looking forward to riding Pokemon. If I can ride an Arcani e, I would be happy! Lol

TruthbeTold1171d ago

Ha ha. That was the first thing I thought of when I heard about the riding mechanic. Arcanine. Gonna be sweet.

Chapkatsu1171d ago

I'm hoping for other Pokémon to ride, but judging from the translation, it might just be Gogoat, and in Miare City =/

TruthbeTold1171d ago

Well they do love to nickel and dime us on new experiences until they catch on. A lot of people want customizable characters, and now we get it, but it's pretty much limited to male/female, 3 skin tones, and 3 hair colors. lol

Chapkatsu1171d ago

True, and sadly enough the default Male character looked the closest to me anyway. I see what you mean though, this is a good first step to riding other things if it is just Gogoat.

I just want to know when they are going to bring back the following thing from SS/HG

Lockon1171d ago

I wish I had a 3DS to play these...Hopefully theres a 3DS emulator >_>

HexxedAvenger1171d ago

It won't be out until, I believe, October. Why not save some pennies? :3

Dj7FairyTail1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

not possible. 3DS is hard to emulate.

It more powerful than Wii, Xbox, GC, PSP, PS2 and so on.

Lockon1171d ago

I see why you have one bubble.

ABizzel11171d ago

Power has nothing to do with emulation, it's system architecture. The more difficult / different the hardware is from a standard PC the harder it is to emulate example PS2 and PS3. The 3DS uses mobile components so it won't be nearly as hard to emulate. When running emulators the your PC CPU has to be powerful enough to run the emulator, but also run it as if was the console itself due to the difference in CPU architecture.

And on a side note the 3DS is not more powerful than the Wii, but on par with the last-gen consoles. It has newer hardware (specifically GPU) that let's it take advantage of things like better lighting, particle effects, and models, which makes games it's games look great on the small screen, but when it comes to RAW numbers no it's not more powerful.
