@DarthNocturnal What's the other game?

Based on Darth's name I'd guess the new Star Wars game.

I like how people act like they've never ever patched a game.

@jump

“Impressive...“

But yeah. Jedi: Fallen Order also launches this Friday.

@-Juice-

I mean I definitely think people should express some concerns. I'd just rather not get too hung up on it because, yeah, they might patch it. For anything. They might even go back on the whole “no full Pokedex“ bit. Then I can actually enjoy it if/ when it happens.

Meanwhile, others will hold very tightly onto a grudge and never let go. I've seen it before.

@StableInvadeel

Well, they did fix two bugs (one in X/Y, one in OR/AS) that were quite problematic and very easy to encounter. Plus some smaller scale stuff with other patches.

But from a content or feature perspective? Nothing really comes to mind, bar maybe Bank support. They never did add the new Megas from OR/AS to X/Y.

Speaking of Bank, I reallllly hope Home doesn't have a sub fee, especially since the GTS is apparently gone. I'm already paying for NSO.

@StableInvadeel Only for small bug fixes. They have been adamant about not updating a game to add content or features to it, especially with Sword and Shield.

Well, that's what patch is for, isn't it? Weren't you talking about bugs in the leaked version? I wouldn't consider large content updates to be "patches", personally. Traditionally speaking, of course.

They also went to great efforts to patch a programming error in ruby and sapphire.

@-Juice- I searched it and read another thing saying that towns go through normal day/night cycle, but routes do not. If that's really the case, it's a very strange way of programming the game.

@StableInvadeel My concern rests solely in our ability to enforce our own difficulty through the experience share. That is the patch that I personally need to like this game. Bugs will definitely be ironed out, in fact, over half of them have... baduum tsss lol

@Harmonie Oh goodness... at this point, it’s pretty obvious Game Freak wasn’t prepared for an HD entry. Actually, didn’t Ishihara think the Switch would fail? Like, he straight up told Nintendo that it would fail? I think this was a 3DS title that they were forced to upscale when they realized the Switch was the next big thing and that their fans were wanting the new entry on that.

I mean, look at the wild areas. They lack a lot of polish, which is why I suspect that they were tacked on when Game Freak was asked of the new Pokemon game would be expansive like BotW. This is why every good looking asset is just a high definition 3DS asset modified for Switch.

Man, this game just makes me angry. At this point, it's obvious the only reason they're putting it out is to expand the franchise, because this game is bound to sell millions no matter what. I never thought Let's Go of all games would look better by comparison.

So uh... I heard rumors online battling and trading is gone from the game? Is that true? Cause I don't know anyone local to trade with... That's like, a setback to 3rd gen levels if true, yeesh.

@Buizel While I don't buy that story, the moves being removed would be because they didn't have the animations ready in that case.

I'd assume online functions would be patched in/enabled after release, requiring online subscriptions and stuff.

Wouldn't expect them to just let people use the online functions before release, after all.

@jump nice work. Still waiting on that Gravitron game

I'm gonna take the same approach I always take with games. Wait and see...Something about carts and horses or the something about Zero-ones and Ponytas in this case

I'm just waiting for a data minder to finally take out the models and finally confirmed if they are actually new or not.

I mean, I fully doubt they are actually new, but it's nice to finally have a source.

I don't know what's worse. The fact that most of the fanboy rage is more or less deserved or the fact that most of them are gonna buy the game day one anyway.

Okay fair, so we might get online features beyond just randomly running into people in the Wild Area... which is apparently already implemented. I'm probably going to cancel my preorder at this point, wait and see what happens post-launch.

EDIT: Yup, just talked to my friends, and we were planning on playing through together but with the current state of the games we're going to all be canceling our orders.

I've seen so many complaints about Sword and Shield from people who have early copies about the game and honestly I hope a lot of it is fixed in a day one patch. Like the bugs. The rest of the game though I really hope is good because I already got it off of the eshop because I'm a diehard fan.

I don't like Monster Hunter.

I'm probably listening to green day right now.

I don't want to be part of the problem so I'm cancelling my preorder. Vote with your wallets people.

@jump Its hard to put an hour mark on Pokemon games because for older pokemon fans the real game is the postgame. And for younger fans they will take longer to progress through the game. I got months of playtime in pretty much every Pokemon game I've played.(I was dormant thru gen 4 and 5 and someone stole my copy of Ruby before I finished it) can't imagine just finishing the story and being done.

My first playthrough in every new Pokémon generation is usually like four times the length of a regular playthrough.
