Dear Skullgirls,

I know you're wondering why I'm not playing you right now. You have your suspicions and I'm going to clear the air.

I'm cheating on you. With Pokemon Conquest.

It's just a passing fling, I promise. I know you're looking for a more sophisticated gamer and Pokemon is for children, but I like the strategy. I'm not saying you don't require strategy.

Please don't be upset. I still love you.

.......but I'm THIS close to beating Nobunaga. I need a couple of days.

Love you,
Al

    How is the game? im not familiar with that gameplay stuff but it looks pretty interesting.
    The gameplay is closer to something like Disgaea or Tactics games. You have up to 6 units, each has only one Pokemon with one move, and two abilities: one specific to the warlord and one specific to the Pokemon.

    Of course the attack determines the range and type, and there is where the Pokemon part comes in (whereas in other Tactics games strengths and weaknesses are based on weapons, here it's on the attack type vs. the opponent's Pokemon type). The terrain comes into play as well; some Pokemon evade attacks more often in their favorite terrain, etc.

    Each warlord can carry a certain number of Pokemon, but there is ONE Pokemon out there (out of only about 200, thankfully) for every different warlord where they can reach the highest strength with. It's based on something called a Link, and experience is given in link %, but you can only get 100% link with a certain Pokemon for each warlord. So to go into battle in the fire castle of Ignis, you'll need to find people carrying water Pokemon, or find warlord that like Water Pokemon more and get them to befriend (link with) a water Pokemon and battle with it to strengthen it.

    The higher the link, the stronger the Pokemon and the better that one Pokemon's move becomes.

    It's certainly the best Pokemon spinoff I've ever played.

    It's okay, I'm cheating on Skullgirls with WOW.

    I forgot how fun that game could be if you had a legit guild.

    Yeah I still need to get Conquest.

    Fire Emblem is still my favorite game, since I have confirmation that Conquest doesn't totally suck there's no good reason I wouldn't like that game too.

    Pokemon also brings out the worst in people. It is a powerful game.

    Anyway, I've been playing skullgirls less because I have a game backlog I need to work through this summer. I'll play more when the patch comes out and it doesn't suck tp find games on PSN.

    I, too, have momentarily abandoned Skullgirls for the beauty that is Phantasy Star Online 2. Screw this 27 hour maintenance, though. :/
    I need that Skullgirls Turbo patch now.

    BW is probably the best thing about Pokemon thus far. The only way it's not better than GSC is the nostalgia factor. BW was fun, it was refreshing, and it wasn't the horror that was DPP.

    I've been cheating on it with UMVC3. Which I now realize is like going behind your wife's back with a hooker you met at McDonald's.

    Once the patch comes, we shall reunite. At least, until AC+R hits PSN...

    fixed it for you.

    You did it wrong. Here it is, in the correct form:
    Pokemon is godlike, especially if you RNG and EV train.

    The RNG part is crucially important. Because breeding that same goddamn Poke for 12 hours to only get two to three 31 IV stats, and settle for everything else to be around 20, is about the most boring thing ever. Taking 10 minutes to RNG a poke on the other hand, woot woot.

    And if you don't check IVs at all, that's a total of 180 stat points you're leaving up to chance! EV training allows you to attribute 127. They are both vitally important for battles between real trainers!

    (Or, of course, you could save all the time and effort and just play Pokemon Online.)

    As soon as you start playing Pokemon competitively, it loses its last shred of fun.

    Even with the best team, best typing, best stats, best abilities, best movesets, it's still a game of chance. One critical hit will lose you the game.
