Pokemon Direct Version Announced

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 24 2016 · 277 views

A Nintendo Direct centered around Pokemon has been announced for Friday, at 7:00AM PT/10:00AM ET/3:00PM GMT! We don't know what it's about, but there'll probably be a new game revealed, so get your wallets ready.

Pokemon Z, maybe?


Tournament Tales

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 22 2016 · 236 views

Technic Tournament 3 & Knuckles is on its Title Match right now, and I’m laughing.

Partly out of rage at how the RNG seems to highly favor that wretched, boring, Sue-like shark over our challenger, I’ll admit.

But mostly over this other thing.

So, this time around, each player only gets one attempt at promotion during the Title Match—that’s it. You have one chance to bring in money for your fighter, and after that, all you can do is wait. Most people are doing what they’ve been doing even before this rule went into effect: throwing all their money in at once. Because of the additional multipliers I’m using on Title Match rolls, nearly every attempt is bringing in millions—Lucina brought in over 21 million alone.

And then there’s this post, and the fact that it resulted in a whopping 4 W.

Keep in mind, Luroka is the entire reason Pridak is in Technic Tournament, requesting the fighter when I announced the first tournament even though I had already decided on the roster so I decided to put him in Tournament 2. (A mistake, I now realize, but that’s neither here nor there.)

So I can only envision all these investors meeting up at the Tournament facility, waving around giant wads of cash, and then Luroka walks in—Pridak’s number one fan, they think, the one who will ensure the shark’s victory. And he just pulls out one dollar. Sets it down on the table. We all stare at him as the ad airs, and we find out that it has sold almost half a ticket.

And it gets better, because this is actually a great tactic! Because if Pridak wins, then all 50 million-ish Widgets this match has made is going to get divided up equally amongst Pridak’s supporters, most of whom currently have no money to their name and will be tied. But Luroka, who only sold half a ticket, has a 700,000 W lead on them.

I’m not kidding when I say this has renewed my passion for running this game. Technic Tournament 4 in 3D just got moved up.

Good news: we had an Office disk and I set that up with little issue.

Bad news: the computer just crashed again.

But I got about 24 hours out of it. I guess I can just reboot it every single day, it's better than nothing and it's not like I can actually afford a new computer.

I'm completely fine with this series of events.


So I Turned It Off and On Again

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 20 2016 · 225 views

To be more accurate, I reset the entire computer. Took about seven hours in all, so I'm glad I didn't have anything to do today!

But I backed everything up on a USB and things seems to be running faster now, so hopefully this is all over, thank you God. Only things I've lost are my saved passwords (most of which I remember), my bookmarks (eh), my save data for Steins;Gate (I still have the physical copy so I can just replay it), a few fonts (like anybody could read my Matoran documents anyway), and, the one that really sucks, Microsoft Office. Hopefully we still have a disk lying around somewhere, but if not, buying a new Office is far cheaper than buying a whole new computer.

Hopefully this won't affect anything, but who knows what else could go wrong. The only foreseeable issue is that I'm afraid to try editing my documents, it says it might not save correctly, but I'm sure I can work around this and finish up Technic Tournament 3.

Fingers crossed.

Random Space Fighting

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 12 2016 · 180 views

I had a weird dream. I don’t remember all the details, but I got the pretty clear impression that Red Joker Mega Man (with some help from Rogue somehow) was fighting Frieza. Weird.

Then I got to thinking “Well, who actually would win?”, and usually I say Jump characters are tough to beat because they’re all OP, but then I thought about it some more. Being OP in Dragon Ball usually boils down to blowing up a planet. That was the whole point of Andromeda, and Geo blew that up in his first game.

So I decided to go ahead and say Frieza, Geo, and Solo were all of comparable power. Then I realized two on one would be too one-sided (and really, how did Geo convince Solo to help him anyway??), so I decided to just go with Red Joker Mega Man (with no time limit) vs “Final Form” Frieza. (I didn’t want to try comparing them to Golden Frieza, I wouldn’t know where to start with that.)

So. If they’re about the same power level, strategy is what’s most important. Let's take a look at what we've got:

-Frieza’s no slouch, but he does tend to rely on flat-out overpowering people. He’s not off to the best start.
-Geo’s biggest advantage is that his Battle Cards are incredibly versatile, and since he’s using an indefinite Meteor Folder, he’ll have a potentially infinite stock of super powerful ones.
-As far as I can recall, the Meteor Folder doesn’t include cards like Invis or Recov, so Geo’s support and healing options are essentially non-existent.
-Red Joker means he probably will be slower than Frieza, which does help Frieza’s chances, but this may also be mitigated by the Mega Attack–even if he’s normally slower, being able to teleport directly in front of Frieza will definitely be a big help.
-Geo’s packing Super Armor, meaning if Frieza does land a hit, Geo will shrug it off and deliver one of his own.
-Frieza needs to intentionally prepare for any attack. Geo’s Mega Buster charges on its own when not in use. Another point to Geo.
-It’s looking pretty likely Geo will win, but I think there are two ways Frieza could turn this around. The first is that, like Goku, if Frieza starts begging for mercy and saying he’ll change his ways, Geo will probably believe him and leave an opening for a cheap shot. It’s an unfair tactic, but worth noting.
-The other is more of a wild card: Frieza’s homing energy disk. Since Red Joker Mega Man is going to be slower than Frieza, he might have some trouble dodging this and finding time to counter. And, since the technique puts so much into its cutting power, I’m not entirely sure it can be blocked by Geo’s shield. How well Geo is able to deal with this attack could potentially decide the outcome of the match.

So in summary: Geo’s Battle Cards, Mega Attack, and Super Armor give him an edge, plain and simple. Frieza’s best chance at victory is taking a cheap shot, which Geo probably would fall for if the situation presented itself, though alternatively it’s possible his homing energy disk could win him the fight. Geo would probably win, but it’s not entirely clear-cut.

Okay so that’s done. Except now I’m trying to figure out Rogue vs Frieza and that’s a little more difficult…

A brand new Pokemon has been revealed!!

Posted Image

"Magiana" is said to be a Pokemon created by humans 500 years ago, and is set to debut alongside Volcanion in this year's movie! We've yet to be given any information on its type or ability or anything like that, but still, this is huge! (My money's on Bug/Steel)

It's looking like Gen VII might begin as soon as next year! Which also means that Pokemon Z is almost definitely releasing this year! And might mean Sinnoh remakes as early as 2018!!

Rising Wing is the best Link Style

Also Ikir is the best Creature

And Riku is the best childhood rival/love interest

(The sad thing is this is the biggest accomplishment I've made this month so far.}


There's a Mega Blocks Pun in Here Somewhere

I felt like making a CCBS version of Star Force Mega Man. It's not great, but I did it.

Picking a Title

Posted by Pahrak #0579 , Feb 03 2016 · 303 views

So I mentioned I was writing a new fanfic. I’ve made some progress, but I’d like to settle on a title for it, and I’m not 100% sure about anything I’ve managed to come up with.

It takes place on Spherus Magna 100,000 years after the reformation and the Great Beings’ civil war. Society is still struggling to recover, the feeling of hopelessness is all anyone knows, and the Toa, now all products of the Red Star, are too ashamed of what they’ve become to inspire anyone. A small team sets off to investigate a strange temple, discovering a crystal tied to one of the Principles followed by the Matoran in ancient times—and are told they must seek out the rest, for Velika’s final experiment has awakened at last, his sights set on reducing the broken remains of the world to absolute nothing.

Every title I’m kicking around at the moment involves two of “Inika”, “Crystal”, and “Renaissance”/”Rebirth”, and that alone has a lot of possibilities. But I’m not totally sold on any of them and am open to other suggestions. Some of the titles I’m giving the most consideration to are:

-Crystal Renaissance
-Renaissance Inika
-Crystalline Rebirth

So I don’t know. Does anyone have any thoughts?
