  1. Still sick. Got about half an update finished last night but ended up doing other things instead. I finished it this afternoon though, so have some content! A Picture of Things To Come: Bees?
  2. Thank you for reminding me I have to update... Guess who's been sick with a cold all week! You'd think that would give me more time to update but it's seriously sapped my motivation to do literally anything, but I have prepared something now at least. Japenesu desu ka, thank you! It's important to be a proper otaku or whatever, according to Sit-jay. Yes lol that was all me and it has Chlorophyll. I guess it's kind of neat to have that instead of the default but Run Away would've been cool and meta. Without further ado, update! I don't have a picture for Things To Come this time but we finally become able to catch Pokemon which is an absolute godsend. Get hyped.
  3. I didn't forget about this thread but the site outage this week was at a pretty inconvenient time for me to update, and I've been dealing with a lot this week. I have an antidepressant now, yay! I'm away for the weekend in a neighboring city, so I won't be posting an update, but I'll throw something together on Monday. Thanks for holding out and I'll get to replying then!
  4. I tend to to like the more hot headed characters over the cooler ones (as long as they don't tread into obnoxious territory - I don't like Saizo much as an example because he's too edgy for me) so my vote is almost unilaterally red. I do like Kyle most in Sacred Stones though - I only really use him and Seth.
  5. It's more that it's on the inside? It doesn't look very clean is what I'm getting at but I wasn't able to describe it well. Maybe I'll throw on a filter on VBA. This is true!! I forgot you don't actually weaken Pokemon first in that game. That's fair, and sounds insanely frustrating. I hope I'm not in for that! I do like the cosmetic changes and any hack that includes modern QoL features like those does get a point in my book. It's easy stuff to forget about. Yeep. Can't wait. Huh, I actually haven't been able to confirm/deny on Google and I don't feel like playing again. Maybe I'll ask Reddit later. I'm not sure it's that clear of a reference, honestly. I know about this and a number of other glitches in Red/Blue but there's nothing obvious that says this is a reference, so it falls flat. Calling someone a noob in person is extremely 2009 though. So, it was Monday and I already more or less forgot to update - but thankfully can commit to just doing it one day later. Falling off schedule immediately is kind of the opposite of good, but we're going to plough through and today will be sufficient! This session was a lot less cringey even if I have complaints about the writing, and we're finally kicking into Do Something mode which is super great! But don't worry, here's A Preview of Things to Come: More CRAPs. Like.... several more CRAPs.
  6. Honestly that's kind of what I fear but hey nothing like starting a thread for commitment, right? It's Friday night and I ate an entire box of Oreos because I ain't feeling so hot, so let's try and do something (pseudo)productive to turn that around! And maybe actually have a Pokemon battle. If I can accept relatively the same thing from every mainline Pokemon game, maybe I should do so for the hack too, but we'll treat this as a separate Entity. A Preview of Things to Come: I can't believe my own strategy got used against me.
  7. Well that's just to be expected! Honestly I haven't read the manga - so I'm not sure how much of this is going with canon or is just being written off the wall, but I feel like this is a bit edgier than what's canon? Or at least the medium presents it as such because it's a lot harder to shove a heavy plot into a Pokemon ROM hack than a manga series. I would actually really like the mainline games to address this directly at some point, even if it's just a couple of lines. There don't tend to be many 11/12 year olds by the time you get to the endgames by Victory Road!
  8. I've heard the term baby barf before but I'm way happier with vurp.
  9. Yes and speaking of cisgendered updates, have one: I'm kind of in the mood to actually play the game beyond some reading tonight so I'm going to do some more. Maybe by playing I meant a bit more walking around Pallet Town, but we are going places eventually. Wild places. Soon. A Preview of Things to Come: There's no fucking way this is kosher, but you know what? I'm here for it.
  10. ......smh my joja file has 150% more hours than our shared file. around 60 and counting im incapable <3
  11. Hey everyone! Remember in like 2014 when I started like 234092 projects (I counted them, a painstaking effort) and finished precisely zero of them? No? Good. I'd prefer we leave that in the past (and if the answer is yes my apologies and please never bring it up again thank you). I've kind of got out of the trying anything creative ever scene since then and have been more or less enjoying games by myself but there are a few problems with that I've run into: 1) Buying way too many games and never committing to finishing, or hell, starting, them. 2) Spending way too many hours in a game doing monotonous tasks to no real goal or replaying games. Case in point: Now it's not that I haven't been having any fun playing Stardew Valley, and I still want to go for 100% achievements (because I obviously hate myself and don't value my time) but this is extremely excessive by my standards and I could be using the time more effectively. Like by working on school work or applying for jobs or trying to entertain friends and strangers on the internet through a web forum. Clearly the latter idea is the best one so I'm going to do that. Two weeks ago I had a cancer scare which shook me up a lot. I went in for blood screening on Friday and everything turned up negative, which is absolutely fantastic and I'm very thankful that I don't have to worry about my health more or less continuously anymore, but my mental health suffered a lot as a result and I've been thinking about a lot since then. I obviously enjoy video games, but they've been kind of taking over my life a lot lately, and I have to seriously address the two points I mentioned above. And I think a good way to do that is to make some kind of content thread. At best, I'll be regularly outputting fairly humorous content (aiming for twice a week to start) for people to enjoy. At worst, this will be a review thread where "this sure is happening all right" where I post every other week. I want to be realistic and address that sometimes life, via school work or my physical/mental health, can and does get in the way. I'm going to try to stick to something regular as best I can - no more unfinished progress, but it's a pre-warning in case things do get boring from time to time. Enough preamble though, I'm here to entertain, not depress everybody. One of my friends posted in a discord server that I'm in earlier this peculiar screenshot, in a tweet. The tweet OP seemed disgruntled but honestly, I ugly laughed. This is high art and if you disagree you are unfortunately incorrect. I was intrigued, so I found the source (slow link for some reason), downloaded it, and played the first little bit of it. It was kind of bad. Like the writing is kind of weird and the player character is kind of annoying but hey, misery makes great company and I think that a bad game can me more entertaining to write about than an acclaimed one. Also, Geodudes. So it can't be entirely awful. I didn't get far into it, so this is by and large going to be a BLIND playthrough. Which comes with its own challenges. I tend to be fairly grindy when it comes to playing Pokemon, and I won't be making an exception for this hack. I'm not going to grind up to super high levels just to beat the game, but I found myself a few levels below even the wild Pokemon by the time I reached the third route. I'll be trying to keep myself around parity and won't be documenting grinding, unless anything completely ridiculous happens. So, let's get to it, I guess. So that's that. I'm going to get started on a new project, and I'm kind of excited! At the bare minimum I'll try to upload every second Monday, but I'm going to aim for Mondays and Thursdays for the time being, or more often if motivation strikes. Please post anything you want in the thread, I love interacting with people and don't want to feel like I'm talking to a wall. Also huge shoutout to Integrity for basically showing me how to use the forums again. I've been bare effort posting lately and didn't know how images or spoiler tags even worked in this editor. I guess that makes me old or whatever. A Preview of Things to Come:
  12. so this is what you were doing instead of tossing salads re: natasha, honestly who cares if she's dicey with her stats. as a bishop she gets slayer and like when youre late in the game youre fighting 80% monsters already. don't need skill if you can just use lightning all the time and ORKO
  13. We might as well drop the topic with you saying this given it seems to be your opinions versus everyone else in the thread's reasoning. And you're the only one here who hasn't played the game.
  14. You were literally just comparing it to the impracticality of Bifrost. You can't only bring in other games when it's convenient to you and discredit them otherwise, especially when by the sounds of it you literally haven't even played FE4.
  15. No offense but this sounds like a you problem and like whining for the sake of it. If it could be used wherever on the map it would be pretty overpowered. Not everything is supposed to be easy to use. You're missing the point and it sounds like it's on purpose. Your pairing argument also holds no weight. There are only three pairings that give you Holsety in Gen II, and one of them is Corple who can't even use it until you drag his ass to level 20. Does that make it a worse item?
