Alright so in the past we've had stuff where multiple people work on various small scale (usually) projects for specific franchises, the most well known of these being the Series Swap series where people would swap their franchises with one another, so I figured since things have been a bit slow lately we might be able to organize a similar sort of thing but using canonical franchises making it more accessible to newer users and also users who aren't too keen on working with another user's creations.
The current idea is having this take place at least once a season and having people create games based on a canonical franchise (e.g. Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, Kirby). Users wouldn't be restricted to a set subseries (unless specified otherwise) so f…Read more >
Been a while since I've done something of this nature and it feels like a good time to do it, so I'm going to take a look at what I believe are the best bosses from the four 2D Metroid Games, for this I'm going to be looking at Zero Mission and Samus Returns as opposed to their originals, this more so affects Metroid 1/Zero Mission since the boss is a remake only.
I'm pretty sure a lot of people forget this thing was a boss in Zero Mission, it's really the only boss in the game that's not defining by some importance to the story but I think the fact it's the best in terms of the battle makes up for that. Mua is avery simple boss all you have to do is dodge its ramming attack by using a grappling line to move from one side of teh room to the…

Pretty simple blog, basically name three franchises (can be Video Games, Movies, TV Shows, Books, etc.) that you really like, I think it would be interesting if people chose three franchises that weren't very similar to one another, e.g. Pokemon, Yo-Kai Watch & Yu-Gi-Oh or Terminator, Robocop & Judge Dredd. Also this isn't necessarily your favourite franchises just ones you like.
Me personally, I'd say three I like are; Rollercoaster Tycoon, Resident Evil & Kirby.
Rollercoaster Tycoon I have a bit of nostalgia for, as one of the first franchises I got into the three main series games are all of exceptionally high quality imo, RCT1 and RCT2 utilized Isometric view which is personally one of my favourite styles in video games even though I kno…Read more >
Yeah we're getting a few blogs based around this series lately aren't we, so as some of you may know from chat I've been discussing issues I've had with the Pokemon games as of late and things that personally I would like to see change, something I think that's critical to note is that with the recent announcements of Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee and the 2019 Gen VIII Pokemon Games, there is the potential that some issues from the previous generations may be addressed as Game Freak is essentially creating Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee as a sort of introductory game for new players to the series much like Pokemon GO before it but more so closer to the core gameplay.
I think this is a pretty smart move by them as it might finally give us a…Read more >
So we've gotten a number of responses from the previous blog post and while I am still waiting on answers for a few questions to get a clearer picture we'll move onto some new questions now that some seem to be pretty well set by the community in what they want, these were the conclusions made from the last blog.
- There is still not a consensus on whether to do One Region or Several
- Pokeride will be the default for Field Moves
