  1. Pokémon 25th Anniversary

    Nice song! And I guess if the audience in the video hadn't liked it, she could just have her Pikachu use Thunderbolt on the lot of them! ūüėą
  2. Aye I already caught it sadly. I probably should have phrased it better in my post. What I meant was that I was wondering if another one would spawn. I just thought it looked cool in the ocean and regret catching it. xD Anyways thanks for the info! I think you're right in that it's most likely similar to a Legendary in that only one exists per game and once it's gone it's gone.
  3. Has anyone captured the giant Wailord at Workout Sea, saved the game, and then it respawn later on, on the same save? Some say it never respawns, some say it has a small chance of respawning once a month/day/week. Also, if it HAS respawned for you, did you ever alter the Switch's system time, since I'd imagine that might interfere with whether it was *supposed* to respawn or not. Just wondering if anyone can confirm it respawning?
  4. What Have You Bought?

    I bought an actual book. O_O Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess. I been playing a bit of chess against computer players on Chess Ultra and chess.com lately and apparently this is a good first chess book, for people at my level to get a bit better. Chess is just a passtime/hobby for me, I just see it as another "video game" I play and I won't be entering any tournaments. xD But still, I would like to get a bit better and be able to beat the computer at a higher level so hopefully this book will help. This is my first "book" in a long time, it's made up of like "web pages" except they don't need an internet connection to work and there's no banner ads. I'd say books could become quite popular in the future. Anywho, the actual book seems good so far. It gives you an introduction to chess, then terminology on different checks and checkmates, and then finally increasingly different "check mate the opponent" puzzles. At first I was like "hey wait a minute, shouldn't this be teaching me things other than checkmate?". Then I realised that essentially EVERY capture in chess is similar to a checkmate in how you approach it, so it IS teaching me the overall game. So yeah good stuff. xD
  5. Your 2021 Gaming Diary

    I enjoyed the game a lot, so I wrote a more in depth Astral Chain review. (This post and link is admin approved, many thanks for that!)
  6. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    I know this is unlikely, but it would be interesting if the story developed that they actually needed Sephiroth, and maybe even Jenova's help to defeat an even greater threat by the end of FF7R...
  7. Your 2021 Gaming Diary

    That's amazing! Next time I feel like playing the Mega Drive Sanics I'll definitely give this a go.
  8. Your 2021 Gaming Diary

    Been playing Astral Chain. Almost finished the story but the spike in difficulty between the entire game and the last boss is pretty high lol. But I've found it to be a pretty darn excellent game, one of my favourites in some time. The graphics and art style are amazing and really show what the Switch can do. It's also managed to do this with VERY little FPS drop. I love the variation in gameplay, you have the hub world, the investigation and/or stealth, and finally the combat. The combat is original and great fun. It took me a while to get used to the number of button combinations to remember, plus controlling a second character in real time, but I'm pretty much used to it now and I think I'll actually miss having the Legion during combat in similar games in the future. xD Also on the gameplay, there's a lot there. There's parts of the game that remind me of Zelda, Pokemon, Metal Gear Solid, Kingdom Hearts, general platforming, and more. I've really enjoyed the story. It gets complaints for being too simple and predictable or something, but tbh does every RPG story have to be a massive mysterious complicated thing where everyone's a clone of a shadow of a smurf ghost's dream and you have no idea what the heck's going on? I really enjoyed it for just being a good story and likable buncha characters. Although, saying that I don't fully understand what Jena's actual goal was or why she was so destructive, but whatever. xD The music is also really darn good, and I've been listening to some of the tunes on YT outside of the game. Another plus point. The game has a cat sidequest! ūüėļ As with all games, even my favourites, I have a few criticisms: - The Jena Anderson thing I already mentioned. Also, why does she look like a zombie? - Sometimes the maps seem to have pointless barriers or one-way systems that force you the long way around for no reason - The platforming, specifically chain jumping is a bit off. If Zelda did this, the symbol that indicates where you land would be 100% reliable. You either see the symbol because the game has determined you can land there, or you don't see the symbol - The game should make it very clear when you're about to trigger a "move on" section, and tell you if there's stuff left to do, including hidden side quests. It could tell you there is a hidden sidequest left without showing you where it is - Astral Chain 2 hasn't been announced yet nor has there been any news at all indicating it's ever going to happen But, overall excellent game and highly recommend!
  9. Suggestions

    I was thinking it might be nice if YouTube embeds had a maximum width or height. They take up like 80% of the height of the screen on desktop atm and in a thread with a lot of them it's a bit "clunky". Not a big deal or anything, might even be something that only bothers me, and it only bothers me slightly. But I thought I'd mention it. xD
  10. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    FF7R's timed exclusivity ends tomorrow! That doesn't necessarily mean tomorrow we'll be instantly able to play it on every other platform. But the announcement of other platforms might not be so far away now.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    I wonder if the Switch Pro will be powerful enough for FF7R? The timed PS exclusivity ends in 16 days... My guess is that even the Switch Pro won't be able to handle Intergrade, but maybe normal FF7R? I was slightly considering buying a PS5 soonish. But now the Switch Pro rumours are getting "stronger" I might actually wait a fair bit longer and see what happens with the Switch Pro. Can't miss out on the latest Pokemon/Mario/Zelda/Metroid/Smash. xD
  12. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Ah nice one, thanks for the help!
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I'm currently playing a bit of Smash Bros Ultimate, and I often see a blue glow around my character when battling in the World of Light, but I don't know what it is. I did Google it but didn't find any definite answers. xD Anyone got any idea? If necessary I'll upload a screeny later.
  14. Oh I thought I'd missed that! Thanks for the reminder. I shall claim that tomorrow. Man there's been a lot of event Pikachus in SwSh. I have almost half a box full of them now lol.
  15. Pokémon Legends: Arceus (Early 2022)

    This is either going to be a huge Breath of the WIld level world and the best Pokemon game to date. Or we've already seen the radius of the world map in the trailer and it's just going to be a not very big field with hardly anything going on in it. xD
