this is the beginning of the end
the woman dropped the charges because of the multiple death threats she would receive by the hour
all i have to say on trump being elected is that it's not surprising that a country built on racism and hatred elected a president whose campaign was/is built on racism and hatred. it's shameful, angering, and disgusting, but it's not surprising. and i'll be damned if i let trump take away some of my rights as a woman without a fight.
@Joyverse ROFL I'm sorry to say that I'm the only kind soul who at least acknowledged your question.
Although to be fair, your question sucked balls.
The lesson to be learned here is,
1. never underestimate the power of stupid people in large group.
2. It can always get worse.
America? what's that?
So, Sun and Moon drop in about a week. That's pretty chill.
Question for November 10th, 2016: What do you predict the Generation VII metagame will be like?
It is going to be extremely messy up in the start thanks to those evasion boosting Z-moves.
The nerf on Gale Wings saddens me but things like DD Flygon and Gem Diancie make me feel great.
Dis gonna be one helluva crazy metagame tbh. Would be fun!
either horrendous or good
I don't like the fact that most new mons are slow. With no new megas in the horizon, this might nerf hyper offense.
Also I'm convinced we aren't getting a cancer like Aegislash. All the other sort of mess can be easily sorted out.
Sure nothing new gets added but all the old things are still there. Plus all the banned broken mons will be back since it's a new gen. On top of that Unaware got nerfed so stall is basically dead. Especially at the start it will be nothing but hyper offense.
honestly, a more balanced meta.
also VGC LOOKS FUN NOW
Well People will be using new and offensive stuff more than anything else. I didn't mean stall is getting buffed. Slower, bulkier, hard hitting mons mean prevalence of Bulky Offense/Balance.
Question for November 11th, 2016: What video game crossover would you like to see?
pokemon n kingdom hearts
Elder Scrolls and Fire Emblem seems legit af. It's gonna be pretty awesome if you tell me.
Dream Drop Distance already happened, AO.
That said, Pokémon and Fire Emblem. We've already seen what they can do with Nobunaga's ambition, and seeing all the types matter in a fire emblem setting would be really interesting if they can pull it off.
sorry I want actual pokemon though
Grand Theft Auto and Pokemon
Pokémon and Dynasty Warriors.
We've had Hyrule Warriors, I think Pokémon Warriors would also be good. Kicking the ass of tons of Caterpie at once with a Charizard? Hell yeah.
Question for November 12th, 2016: In your opinion, is Super Smash Bros Melee or SSB4 the better game? Please discuss in detail.
I had more fun playing melee or brawl over ssb4. Friends coming over & getting angry when I bopt them was a highlight of my competitive gaming childhood. I guess since I'm older and smash isn't as touching to me anymore, it's a biased opinion, but I prefer Melee.
Melee has its Adventure mode, Classic mode (returning from SSB, with Break The Targets and Race to the Finish returning in new forms), All Star mode, unique Break The Target stages for each character (returning from SSB, but with new stages for all characters), alternative music for a bunch of stages, Home-Run Contest, Multi-Man Melee, Event Mode, Tournament Mode and multiple different options for battling in Versus Mode that were brand new too. It is also generally a faster-paced game, and the unintentional additions that make Melee a fantastic competitive game so many years after its original release are also amazing.
Smash 4 doesn't have a solid 1-player mode, its Classic mode is nothing like the previous Smash games, Break The Targets is gone and replaced with Target Smash which only has 3 stages and is generally shit, can't do Tournaments offline, and is generally a slower game when compared to Melee. However, it has online play, online tournaments, amiibo training support, 8-player Smash, Smash Tour, Special Orders, Custom options for characters and Miis, Mii Fighter capabilities, and the largest roster of characters thus far. It is also worth noting the 3DS version's Smash Run, which I really enjoyed, but I won't consider it for the argument.
Each of the two games has its positives, with the majority of Smash 4's positives coming purely from it being released later, thanks to advancements in technology. I personally prefer to play Melee (due to the modes that Smash 4 doesn't have tbh), and also prefer to watch competitive Melee (cos shit's so fast it's crazy), but it hurts my hands too much to play it for too long, so I tend to play Smash 4 more often now.
Question for November 13th, 2016: With Pokemon Sun and Moon coming in less than a week, how good of a job do you think Nintendo did hyping these games? Was it too much, too little?
I think it was way overhyped especially since they introduced so many new things, but it is still a pokemon game which will always be played and liked by a lot
honestly because they released so much about it and overhyped it so much it's made me not want to buy it
they've given out too much information prior to release. The storyline has to make up for what they haven't shown.
As a competitive Pokémon fan, I appreciate the info. Makes it easier for us to prepare the necessary tools and plan the necessary Pokémon for the future.
As a Pokémon fan, I find it odd that so much information has been announced, and I have mixed reviews overall as to the new releases. Some appeal to me, some have made me less excited. Overall, I'm still excited for the game, because I'm a Pokémon fan.
As a general gaming fan, I am really rather frustrated that just so much information has been released prior to launch, and it makes me think that I won't get to personally discover something new, and that makes me feel less excited about the game. If anything, I am worrying that they're releasing so much about the game because the game is terrible, and they're trying to just draw in purchases anyway. If I wasn't a huge Pokémon fan as well, I'd probably be waiting a short while before getting Sun and Moon, and wait for the general opinions of people before I made a decision.
In general, I think they went too far. They should have kept some stuff hidden and secret, to let players discover the plot and bits of information about the game themselves instead of throwing the vast majority of the game into the public eye. That would let people feel like they are actually experiencing a new game, instead of just "oh yeah I've heard about this, let's do it."
Yea so far it feels like there's not been a lot I haven't seen already. The new stuff that wasn't shown is kinda neat though, but Ultra Beasts especially should have been kept secret imo. It feels like they wanted to make it a surprise in-game, but it's like "oh yea I remember this from the trailer" and it just kinda falls flat.
The game overall is pretty neat though. Although I really wish Gamefreak would stop removing stuff between generations, holy shit.
Question for November 14th, 2016: So, we all know time travel exists in one way or another. If you could give any time traveler any tips about this year, what you say?
"Psst, Hey, hey! Vote for Harambe! Call the other yous from other timelines..."
"No IDFC about your damn untrue paradox theories. MAKE THEM VOTE FOR HARAMBE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!"
Also yeah, nice q. Would appreciate qs like these in the future! :V
"Don't visit America"
Put all your money on Leicester City winning the Premier League. I swear I'm not trolling you.
If someone is travelling forwards in time to this year, I'd tell them to kill Rupert Murdoch when they get back from where they came from. Perhaps his shitty influence over every media station in the English-speaking world won't be felt then, and we won't have as much fearmongering in the press.
no its not a prank bro
"Trump will win the election, so go back further and tell everyone to start protesting BEFORE it happens!"
"Vote for Bernie!"
"Pick a different year."
Spoil everyone with spoilers regarding Pokemon SuMo
"Psst, when you go back after you've seen what this world has turned into, can I come with you?"
Question for November 15th, 2016: If you could write a book about your life so far, what would the title be?
Mine would be Bargain Bin Filler.
