Where were you when Gamefreak became based?
gens I & II had an objectively better aesthetic, regardless of whether or not the games themselves were better. Ken Sugimori's artwork and the impressionist style of the GB era games just resonate better with a lot more people. 90% of normies will ALWAYS view 1998-2001 as the glory days of pokemon. Stay BUTTHURT.
Too bad I already got the Happy Home Designer N3DS bundle or I'd be all over this desu. I will still be downloading red version just on the off chance GF gives us a mew event here in north america.
You'd think people that hate genwunners would want to promote the idea that every gen has its good points, instead they'd rather trash the old ones and anyone that likes them, making them no better than genwunners.
What's the point of this? Why isn't it Firered/LeafGreen?
Like, I get the appeal of the limited 3/2DS, but the game itself makes no sense. Reselling a game with no trading, buggy as hell, and no connectivity to the other games at this point, not to mention the easiest ones to emulate.
If they are doing this, why not remake it with XY/ORAS graphics?
Because normal people don't give a single shit about any of that?
Everyone here knows the problems with these games, but you're severely autistic if you expect the average person to know or care about these things that seem so unimportant to them.
Good. Game freak is bringing back the vibes of Red/Blue when Pokemon was at it's peak of greatness. Reminds me of 2nd grade all over again. I like it. Also the best legendary, Mew, is being pushed forward again. Based Gamefreak has delivered the goods.
except normies aren't going to buy this, only the autismo's on /vp/ and other pokemon sites will.
Normies will continue playing it on their phone and ipad, where they don't look like an idiot with a 2DS
How so? They were good games for their time, and even today there's something to be said for their simplicity and non-linearity. To this day I love replaying Red and Crystal versions every couple of years or so because it's refreshing to just be able to play with whatever pokemon I catch without worrying about IVs or balltism. I guess it all comes down to personal taste but I even thought the sprites looked fiercer and more "monster-like" in gens I and II (gen I's horribly garbled and pixelated back-sprites aside).
>everything old is bad
>only things that came out within the last 30 seconds are good
People like you remind me of the tweenwave kids from South Park. How the fuck do you like/participate in anything cultural? Music, movies, TV shows, video games - do they all have to be new? Can nothing old be good in your mind? Does everything have to happen ONLY when it first happens? Can nothing be re-made/re-released/revisited?
I'm guessing babby wasn't around when these games were released? Releasing them on virtual console makes infinitely more sense as a fast cash grab than wasting precious dev time to make them on the XY engine, which they could be using to make new games.
But there was trading, and it has been rehauled to let you trade to other R/B/Y games on 3DS or to the newer games
>buggy as hell
Yellow version fixed most of the bugs, and I suspect they will patch a couple of them before they release this
see above about trading
Theres not much point playing gen1 now over any of the new games other than nostalgia or if you want an incredibly simple game.
They're buggy as fuck and don't have anywhere near the same amount of content
They're target audience is Japan and most people watching the super bowl are drunk American adult males.
The rest of the world comes second in all of the shit they put out. I just don't see them announcing a game to America first.
Again, it all comes down to personal taste. Last year I played Black version, Y version, and then followed it up by replaying Red. While I had a decent amount of fun with the other two, Red just holds a certain magic for me that the other two can't match.
The entire feel of the games, anon. FRLG is objectively better in many aspects, but the entire feel of the games just aren't the same.
And there will be trading, that was one of the first things they covered when these were announced. They've definitely made some tweaks to the games.
Maybe even connectivity with gen VI, but that's doubtful. A man can dream, though.
>don't have anywhere near the same amount of content
Oh, you mean like O-Powers, playing dress-up, Wonder "Trading" (i.e. getting lv. 3 Caterpies and those dumbass monkees), Mega-Digis, and Tamagotchi training?
Man are you ever right. I sure am missing out on a lot of quality content.
I don't see the issue with adding old games to eShop?
That was half the reason nintendo made the eShop.
Plus those 2DS bundles look badass, and even though I have the XY edition XL, I think the 2DS is fucking awesome. It reminds me of the GBA, a solid, non folding, plain and simple, very affordable, handheld.
I don't get all the gen wun hate surrounding the re-releaces either. They're just games, theres a lot of old games that are shit, that inspired newer games that were not shit.
Thats how fucking time works.
Its like some one saying "wow you were so dumb when you were in 1st grade, you couldn't even drive a car or do multiplication ."
>is there anything that has the updates on these games?
Yes, faggot. If you'd have paid attention when this was first announced, you'd know that they modified them so you can trade via local connectivity.
>The Virtual Console version of the games will use local wireless to replicate the classic and much-loved link cable trading feature of the original games.
>they wont sell any plates without the fuck ugly logo
unless they announce a late edition of venusaur i guess im saving 300 bucks
>Europe and Japan are getting this but not us
Saying they had objectively better aesthetic design is bullshit and you know it.
It's not that I don't agree with the gen 1&2 art style being a million times better than the newer ones, but people like different things. I stopped buying the games after at gen 4 because of how awful the designs and artstyle had become, but calling my taste objective would make me no better than the people who just shout genwunner everytime someone mentions gen 1.
>Doesn't understand nostalgia-pandering as a money-making tactic
It's ok, anon. Enjoy giving GF your money and I look forward to hearing from you whine about the lack of quality in Z when it comes out.
I know, I'm gonna do that, but you'd think they would make it available in NA as well considering it's Pokemon's 20th anniversary.
>How hard are we Canucks gonna get fucked over?
I think you already know the answer to that bud.
>Yuropoors are getting the 2DS as well
WHAT THE FUCK NoA?
>They were good games for their time
The fuck they were. There were RPG's that functioned better YEARS before Pokemon was convinced on the same platform. The only reason the games were popular was because of the anime. That's it. The anime saved Pokemon from becoming a one-hit wonder.
>my eyes went directly to the hitmonchan sprite
If you don't think the anime and all the merchandise it generated didn't have a part in keeping Pokemon relevant and popular, you really need to take a second look. Everyone watched the show, but about half of that statistic played the games.
They did. The anime was THAT big. I know you're too young to realize that, but it was. Everyone could watch it, and everyone could buy a little bullshit Charmander figure because of the anime's influence.
My point is Knight Quest wasn't buggy and glitchy to the extent that Red/Green were and functioned the way it was supposed to.
Yes, Pokemon succeeded because it was a well-marketed pop culture sensation rather than simply a video game. That doesn't mean that the game wasn't successful on its own merits. There's a lot more to a video game than the quality of its programming.
>I know you're too young to realize that
wow, you're pathetic
There are more reasons behind why Pokemon became a huge hit than just the anime
A lot of it had to do with it appealing to just about everyone in some way. There were kids in my school that hated the games and the anime but still collected the cards and there were kids who played the games but hated the cards.
You're right tho the games were a glitchy mess and are always years behind everything else but kids couldn't give two shits about that, all they care about is whats popular and whats fun.
I haven't turned my 3DS on since I beat the E4 in Omega Ruby, which was maybe a couple weeks after release. Didn't even finish the Delta Episode because I just lost interest.
As cool as I think this is, and I think it's fucking cool, I'm gonna pass. I just don't play Pokemon like I used to. Not sure if it's because I don't game as much in general anymore, which I don't, or because I think ORAS and XY were really "meh", which I do.
I'd actually get that bundle if I could afford it. My current 3DS is getting old and at least with this bundle I'd be able to get the trade evos in the re-releases. If GF would at least make a way to wifi trade I'd get the Blue and maybe Yellow re-releases.
anti-genwunners are insufferable. The second you mention that you like gen 1 or are excited about something surrounding gen 1 they have to pop up and scream at the top of their lungs about how shit gen 1 is.
>not downgrading your console to glorious 9.2 and running cfw to natively launch anything
its like nintendo wants people to pirate their stuff
tl;dr: fuck nintendo for still region locking a fucking handheld...
Wrong. People only hate genwunners because they INSIST gen 1 was the best and that "there are only 150 pokemon! XD"
Most of those faggots were only playing because pokemon was a fad, rather than because they were fans
It has more to do with sales figures than anything else. Sometimes games get released later in certain regions, so the local sales will take a hit due to so many people just importing instead of waiting another month or two. As a result, the local version of the game under-performs in that region and the staff of that branch are blamed.
No. Not wrong. Where the fuck did OP state that he INSISTED gen 1 is the best and that everything else is shit? Nowhere. Yet look at the replies you blind fuck. People do this shit regardless of whether or not you bash the other gens.
>they're not TRUE fans because they don't like what I like xD
like I said, insufferable. You're just as bad as the genwunners you complain about.
Don't generalize, that's like one step above what he's doing. I like Gen6 but he's a projecting retard. I like his counter argument, it really plays to progressive reason.
and 1-3 in that order
every hoennbaby's bitching and moaning ever
its really unfortunate that you weren't born around the peak of pokemon's popularity, and this is probably why you can't get hyped for anything related to gen1 and gen 2, and your reasoning will always be like this fag here >>24991664
>implying every genwunner quit after the first 2 gens
What is sarcasm, brother. Also that's a really poor argument anyway. You probably shouldn't make excuses (ie blame others without taking responsibility) for shitty behavior. It's a quality children have, you just don't need it anymore.
It's OK to be mad. I don't know why it's commonly insinuated that it isn't. But don't back it up with foolishness, because you lose me there. Not that you asked for advice.
That's fine. I didn't play 4/5 and going back, I lack the nostalgia Goggles so many have. I couldn't get through either, though I really like a few mons from them anyway. Crystal was my shit in highschool. I had a DS but at my age it was frowned upon moreso than it would be today.
They all have faults. The games are like flavours, and autists fail to understand or appreciate things others sometimes do. It's alright.
Oh and by the way, everyone knows gen1 was heavily flawed. Everyone here, anyway. It's something to appreciate broken, so broken things.
I'm not sure why genwunners can't have something nice for them. Why normal people can't just enjoy it. Why does it upset so many autists? Do they really believe they're the underdogs here?
Oh well. You're all faggots.
Faceplates are eh, but at least they're better than the ones in the AC bundle.
Depending on how much it is I might buy it. Skipped on the AC bundle because I wanted HHD anyways but physical and didn't want to have to deal with selling the code.
Really should be a thing period for GBC VC, you can do NES multiplayer through local wireless already.
>Actually has a job
>still, this bundle would be a big hit for my economy (third world country)
>there are other games i want too
>yesterday i told my dad that starting from next month i would pay one of the house bills
Fucking bad timming.
>MFW all these idiots that bought the AC bundle just to get a normal size NEW 3ds
Yes, first send your 3ds data though itself, then plug your old 3ds' sd card on the comp and copy-paste the file called "nintendo" (is just one), then plug your new 3ds' SD card and copy-paste the file on it.
>mfw I almost did that on black friday but talked myself out of it
Question, if I were to get this 3ds with the game pre installed then can I use my current SD card with all my other digital games stored on it? Is there software that can do this or is it just copy pasting files on a computer?
where can I find high quality scans of the gen 1/2 sugimori artwork?
You can play Xenoblade with it. Smash loads faster, Eshop is faster, and the nub makes monster hunter easier.
If those things don't interest you enough to spend money for the upgrade then don't bother. Personally Xenoblade and the nub for monster hunter made it worth it to me.
>Monster Hunter nub
>tfw I've been gitting gud with the circle pad pro for like 2 years
>tfw my 3DS is busted and I must upgrade or suffer broken shoulder buttons
fate is cruel but just
It's a ROM, guys. You can even inject it onto your 3DS.
Curious. This bundle comes with the two faceplates. What color is the 3DS under? I can't decide if I should get the Hyrule Eagle New 3DS, or get this. But I don't think I dig the whole faceplate thing, especially if it's just plain white underneath.
>it's refreshing to just be able to play with whatever pokemon I catch without worrying about IVs or balltism
GEN 1 AND GEN 2 HAVE IVS
GEN 1 AND GEN 2 HAVE IVS
GEN 1 AND GEN 2 HAVE IVS
HOLY SHIT STOP SPREADING THIS MISINFORMATION
IF YOU CAN IGNORE THEM IN EARLIER GENS YOU CAN IGNORE THEM IN LATER GENS
Its going to be a pokemon GO commercial. Screencap this.
