Our thoughts go to Silver and his family in this difficult time.

Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 25, 2012, 06:42:54 PMThe fact that they're being announced less than four months before release and it's releasing three months earlier than expected means one thing: these are stopgap games. Game Freak likely needs extra time to develop they're first full 3D game ever, so they got one team (likely the HG/SS team) to work on these while the other team (the B1/W1 team) works on Gen VI. That means that they're making more than 750 3D models just counting the Pokemon. Cut them some slack. It was likely this or nothing until next year.I'm guessing it'll be the same region with no new Pokemon, but the story will be a direct sequel.Also, what zeph said. There was nothing Nintendo could do about the scaling other than making the resolution exactly 4x the DS's resolution, which would have been very expensive and effectively cut the 3DS's graphics potential in half unless they made it twice as powerful, which would have increased the price and cut the battery life.
Quote from: zephilicious on February 26, 2012, 02:10:19 AMthe 3ds has far lower resolution and processing power than most modern smart phones. and it already has poop battery life. nintendo has pretty much always been horribly out of date technologically.also 3d models are easier and faster to make than sprites.

Quote from: zephilicious on February 26, 2012, 12:45:36 PMgameboy is the obvious early counterexample. and if we compare to the pc market almost no console has ever been technologically up to date.

Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 26, 2012, 02:10:47 PM:/ He's a cool character, but he's so easy for someone with such high-level Pokemon. His team is just a gimmick.
Quote from: Mona on February 26, 2012, 02:15:26 PM> > Sure sure... they're not going to make him unbeatable. You know, if they put him into another game they'll probably make changes to his team, I'm sure.
Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 26, 2012, 01:55:23 PMI said "console." I know that they purposefully stay behind with handhelds.
Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 26, 2012, 01:55:23 PMEDIT: Based on the pattern the anime follows, Ash will make it to the final match this time. He'll be champ either this gen or the next one. (Though, technically, he already won a championship. Remember Orange Islands?)
Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 26, 2012, 02:34:03 PMThey don't have to make him unbeatable, but come on. He's just a gimmick as far as battling him goes. A cool part of the game. If some random guy got his team, nobody would remember him. He doesn't have anything like Cynthia's Garchomp to wreck an unprepared team.
Quote from: Hero_of_Darkness on February 25, 2012, 09:44:05 PMHow do they have less time? They started Black and White in 2007 after Platinum (which is why BW was missing some HG/SS features), and they got 3DS dev kits before anyone else. Development most likely started in late 2010, if not sooner.
Quote from: Nayrman on February 26, 2012, 01:52:15 PMRematch with Red, and maybe Gold as well. I like the idea in game.
