Recently Famitsu did a survey in honor of Kingdom Hearts' 15th anniversary, asking things like favorite characters, favorite scenes, what Final Fantasy characters you want to see (Bartz placed fifth!!), etc. More recently, Nomura responded to these results, and there were two things that really stood out to me. One: he is disappointed that Riku didn't place higher in the popularity poll and wants to fix that. I wholeheartedly agree. And two: (screenshot from KHInsider) Nomura has ca
has been released for the next Pokemon movie. What we’ve seen previously implied this was a retelling of the first season, showing OG Ash and a Pikachu who doesn’t like him and Ho-Oh being there, but now *echoing voice* IN HD!! */echoing voice* This trailer shows that it’s not that at all. It starts out the same, but apparently after seeing Ho-Oh, Ash meets up with some entirely new characters with Pokemon from other regions who also have Rainbow Wings from Ho-Oh, and in a surprisingly soon
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X (with the X pronounced as “chi”) has just had a major update, now renaming itself Kingdom Hearts Union X (with the X pronounced as “cross”). First and most importantly: Illustrated KHII Kairi is available in the new Epic Medal Carnival, guaranteed within 5 draws and coming with three dots! She’s a Curaga, all attribute buff, all attribute debuf, fixed damage to all enemies, and 10 gauge recovery all wrapped into one beautiful package! With Tier 5 Guilt! Get this,
You know those other ideas I said I wanted to get off the ground sometime soon? This isn’t one of them. This one just showed up and insisted I do something with it and I didn’t feel like trying to do anything else anyway so it ended up done. That’s the short version. If you want the long version: waaaaaay back in the day, some noob named Exo-Zadakh started writing a story where Bionicles were Pokémon, except you fused with the Bionicles/Pokémon, and as time went on and he entered his weeabo
See that? That’s what I meant about subtitles. That’s actually cool, unlike Today in Reality Avoidance 2, Today in Reality Avoidance 3, Today in Reality Avoidance 28…
Here We Go Again
Fullbringers: -Some nitpicks priorities to get out of the way here: Chad, Orihime, and anyone else who might have developed Fullbring by this point should definitely get upgrades, there’s absolutely no reason for them not to. Ichigo’s Fullbring should look more like his Inner Hollow/Arrancar form, and the
In my ongoing efforts to accomplish nothing productive with my life, I got an urge to rewrite Bleach in a way I think would be more interesting. Of course, that’s a momentous undertaking, so instead of writing the whole thing out I just threw together an outline. Since I’m not going to go reread the entire series some of this may be foggy, but hey, who’s reading this?
Why Did I Do This
Beginning through Soul Society: -Honestly I don’t think I’d change much for the first two arcs. Mayb
The time has come, folks. With the Judge Slizer’s timeline sinking into the void, the Judge Coronet and the Ice Coronet have met up for one final battle. The winner will determine the fate of the remaining scraps of the Slizer population. The loser…well, I’m sure you can guess. Are you ready to do your duty? For Coronet and Cancellation? (It’s Slizer Mafia 3 yo, come on down for a disk-throwin’ good time)
I just posted the twentieth chapter of Shooting Star Sonia 2, and with that, it is officially complete! Just completing something always feels good, but I’m extra jazzed about this one. The rough draft was technically all done in approximately a year (January to January), and from the time I started posting it (July) I was able to maintain a biweekly posting schedule from start to finish. PLUS an extra chapter on the 10th anniversary of Mega Man Star Force. I was able to hold myself to a sc
There's a new Zelda game just out and none of you who actually play Zelda thought to use that joke in response to this trend by now smh (Oh right, they're probably all still playing the new Zelda game. Carry on.)
I’ve been thinking on and off about a new concept for a game inspired by Steins;Gate. The idea was that the Great Beings have discovered a pocket dimension that is virtually identical to the main universe but is just starting out, and as time moves there they will send visions to certain individuals in an attempt to alter the sequence of events to see if they can accomplish a smoother reformation of Spherus Magna. My only idea for a title was “Crosswired;Gate”, but anyway. Figuring out how t
Life as a retired theme is actually pretty great! The extensive cast of the Bionicle franchise has spent the last few years relaxing in luxury with not a care in the world, and is having their annual reunion party as the film opens. The scene focuses on big name characters like the Toa and Makuta, with a few condescending references to “the Gen 2 side of the family” and a small appearance from an old drunk Slizer who rants some gibberish about the prophecy of the Slizers’ return. One of the T
Coming up with titles for things has always been a struggle, but I felt like I had managed to come up with a few good titles here and there, and that was a very satisfying feeling so I kept trying. No more, though. There’s no point in trying to come up with titles that I think might sound good. No title I come up with could ever compare to a title like “Bahamut Disco”.
Dragon Ball Super has recently kicked off the Universe Survival Arc we’ve been looking forward to. Rather than going straight to the tournament proper, they’re doing a three-round exhibition match between Universe 7 (Goku and friends) and Universe 9, and the most recent episode gave us some interesting information after the second round concluded. Which is a weird place to put it. Especially since the Grand Priest presents this in an announcement to everyone gathered—you would think it’d be d
So not only was Final Fantasy V in a commercial recently, there’s going to be a new Mega Man Star Force figure this year?! This is amazing. I like this trend of my favorite underrated games getting nods. Next on the list are Sinnoh remakes and a TWEWY sequel.
Well it’s not out yet. But you know what is out? Slizer Mafia 2.8, a lazily-named short story that briefly introduces the situation you’ll find yourself in and a couple of characters who’ll be important. Also it goes into some mechanics so that I can skip the long explanations in the actual game to save space. Don’t worry, Slizer Mafia 3 is looking good, and I plan to request permission to host it soon. (Maybe mid-March if the opportunity is there?) And no, you don’t have to read 2.8 in o
So I guess Square Enix is doing a collaboration with a new smartphone game or something, and they’re doing ads to promote it of course, and guess what? There’s not a Cloud in sight. IT FEATURES FINAL FANTASY V.
Oh yeah, it’s been quite a while since I last ran a Technic Tournament. Maybe I should do that. I mean, I’m doing Slizer Dome right now, and my next priority should probably be to wrap up the Slizer Mafia trilogy, but… Would anyone be interested in playing Technic Tournament 5? And if you have any suggestions for how the game system can be improved, I’m all ears. (The title would be “Technic Tournament 5 Ocarina of Majora’s Twilight” by the way.)
(New name btw this is Pahrak if you can’t tell.) --Gehenna’s Stigma: Now this is an entertaining villain! --Vega and Altair: I have some mixed feelings about this but dang if it doesn’t feel epic as heck. --Twin Automata: Oh my gosh…I like Moeka now!! --Recursive Mother Goose: BUT DID YOU NEED TO MAKE IT THAT SAD?! --Promised Rinascimento: Since this is spoiler-free all I can think to say is “I dig it.” --Milky-Way Crossing: Not quite what I was hoping for, but definitely cool. The

So when I went to download Fire Emblem Heroes the other day it wasn’t available yet and the store recommended the new Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links app, and I figured “pssh okay sure I guess I’m curious.” It turns out it’s…actually fun? Like, way more fun than children’s card games should be? I'm having difficult putting it down and I'm not sure I feel comfortable with this development. Part of it’s definitely nostalgia, of course. You unlock the ability to play as several characters from the origi
