Pokemon Presents Anonymous 02/26/2021 (Fri) 04:17:28 Id:7a189b No. 247714
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTZeVNwAmkk http://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=iTZeVNwAmkk After completely skipping Zelda's 35th anniversary, Nintendo is doing a quasi Nintendo Direct dedicated to Pokemon's 25th in 10 hours of posting this. Current expectation is a Let's Go to the Polls sequel is part of it since they're reprinting the shitty Pokeball accessory for that.
>After completely skipping Zelda's 35th anniversary They already said they can't show BotW 2 yet, and making an anniversary celebration without showing any of it would have gotten people to riot. So they'll just do it later in the year, maybe for the US release. Gives them more time to cook up half-baked remakes as well, as an anniversary that doesn't launch ten fucking games in one year is not a worthy celebration. >Pokemon 35th I sincerely hope there are no Gen 4 remakes just so that Twitter retards can screech even harder.
I expect nothing
>>247714 >modern Pokeshit Not interested unless they blow (((Matsuda)))'s brains out on stream and go back being about Pokemon and not this kikery that's wearing my childhood franchise's skin like a suit. >>247718 I hope there's no remakes just so that there's at more things they haven't molested (gen 4, gen 5, and PMD E/D/S). >>247720 I have no real expectation except that whatever the fuck it is, I'll hate it and will be another step towards this franchise's decline.
>>247714 >After completely skipping Zelda's 35th anniversary Mario's 35th Anniversary is currently still happening. Once the financial year ticks over I imagine we'll get the Zelda Direct that goes in-depth on SSHD, tells us the other games are coming out at Christmas in time for the holidays, and that BOTW2 will be delayed until next year, while also showing off some new stuff but not enough to take too much thunder away from SSHD and the other remasters. E3 is only a couple of months away. >so why is Nintendo doing something for Pokemon while Mario's having his anniversary? Game Freak is still a separate company, although majority owned by Nintendo, and Pokemon is a force unto itself. Also, what the fuck is this capcha? What is that second digit supposed to be?
Have the normalfags memory-holed Dexit yet?
>>247728 A bunch of poketubers are now making videos criticing the problems of pokemon sword & shield ultimately proving their detractors right, not that they're mentioning them much now that the shitstorm's since settled.
God I hope I don't have to watch Platinum's legacy get destroyed

>>247732 So they spend time shouting them down as "DADDY GAMEFREAK IS TRYING THEIR BEST" only to turn around years later talking about the same points the detractors were making, and they won't even admit they were right? That's total nigger shit.
(136.66 KB 350x439 Rage rage.png)
>>247732 >finally addressing the rape of Pokemon after it's safe to do so I should've expected this, but I'm unbelievably pissed regardless; My favorite childhood game series, fucking 177013'd by JewTubers and Game Freak, and both got away clean. >>247748 That's unfortunately common practice nowadays, journos are especially bad with this; they shit on a game, then claim it was a hidden gem and sometimes even piss and whine about "muh unfairness" about it being "poorly received" by gamers, ignoring that it was their fucking fault if such a thing has happened.
>>247732 >poketubers This is one of the main cancers plaguing the video game industry. Them and their sarcoma-esque fanbase.
Am I the only one that thinks XY wasn't bad and just merely meh? It had some pains from moving to 3D and definitely a step back from B2W2's relative high point (not as good as GSC, but as good as the series ever got). The refusal to give opponents full teams and stupid assignment of mega evos really hurt it, but it could have been fixed. ORAS was an abomination though. Fucking remakes with less content than the original game and stupidly imbalanced abominations.
>>247766 >Am I the only one that thinks XY wasn't bad and just merely meh? Of course not, that's why some portions of Pokeshit fans are retards. It's at least a Pokemon game (which is more than can be said for S/S), but it's easily one of the worst, which is exacerbated by the fact that no one in Game Freak knows how to code without shitting in their hands and throwing it at the screen like monkeys. ORAS looked fine, but them making half of the cast BLACKED was a retarded idea, assuming it wasn't done for subversive purposes; and if it wasn't, why not also add the option for the MC to be a nigger, like X/Y did?

I've never actually played a Pokemon game in my life.
>>247714 What do they even have to talk about. Show off some Snap? It's too early for a new gen, so a remake entry is probably on the cards. Other than that, that's all I can think of.
>>247845 There's a new legendary they teased in some Nipponese magazine a short bit ago. As mentioned in OP, they're reprinting the Let's Go accesory, so we may be getting a sequel to that shit. Besides that, I'm pretty sure there's going to be some kind of spinoff(s) to announce given this is Pokemon.

Game freak should drop all pretenses and just make a Pokemon themed ero dating sim already.
>>247754 >claim it was a hidden gem and sometimes even piss and whine about "muh unfairness" about it being "poorly received" by gamers, Somewhat related to your post, I hate it when people that review or talk about Nintendo games- in general, not just YouTubers- call a Nintendo game underrated or a hidden gem. Like, shut up, Mario 3D World sold more than most games will ever see. I'm going to upset when Skyward Sword drops and people try to act like it's one of the best Zelda games. >>247766 I also thought XY was alright. I thought it had some neat features and ideas like clothing customization and Lysander being an insane super villain. >ORAS was an abomination though Reminder that Zinnia is insane and a terrorist. At least we got that guy giving it a 7 hour review. I unironically love it.
>>247891 >I'm going to upset when Skyward Sword drops and people try to act like it's one of the best Zelda games. Skyward Sword had the best dungeons in the franchise even before the HD version dropped, all the fi, tutorial bullshit and fetch quests hold it back from being a great game
>>247875 Who the fuck is this glownigger? I've seen him in more than one thread.
>>247911 >best If by that you mean worst, then I'd agree.
>>247914 They can't be worst even if you didn't like them since BotW had objectively the worst dungeons in the series.

I found presumed leaks of one of the new games on /vp/.
>>247927 Looks like what people wanted with Sword/Shield. Still this IS a Pokemon game so I expect them to fuck it up somewhere.

>>247927 this gonna be open world meme bullshit isn't it?
>>247930 I can see it being a crappy MMO for chinks while the rest of the world is left with a shitty DP remake.
Since Fitgirl released a Pokemon Sword and Shield torrent I downloaded it from their since despite all its shittyness I still love Pokemon games and want to play it. I'm just not gonna fucking pay for this garbage. Haven't been able to play much though since it keeps fucking crashing but what I've seen in the like literal 10 minutes I've been able to play It looks surprsingly not shit.I mean the graphics and what not is obviously bad and low res the it somehow still looks good if you know what i mean. Like if it had a HD texture pack or graphics settings like a PC game you'd be like "oh yea so thats how all this is supposed to actually look, looks nice"

anyone else getting stutters up the ass?
>>247732 There's a semi-popular four hour video going into every single problem with SWSH. Here's the issue, the average person does not care. How many copies did SWSH sell, like 15 million? So even if a video gets a million views, that's not even 10% of the customers.
>>247946 Just started once you said that for me.
>stream isn't working awesome Are they airing this on Twitch? YouTube never loads for me. Probably because of all the Google shit I have blocked.

>Masuda well shit
>Youtube is actively removing dislikes wew lad
Platinum better not get shafted, better be baked in to D/P unlike the Ruby and Sapphire remakes. Not gonna happen though. Sad! Also stuttering is bake for me and worse than before.

>"Faithful remake" meaning no Platinum content and game corner >Open world bandwagon faggotry If romhack autists can't make an open world pokemon be fun, the company that has no concept of level curves sure as fuck won't be able to
i really doubt anyone cares about pokeshit because of the games
>>247978 >>247982 Went with youtube instead of twitch today since soynys garbage event yesterday was shit on twitch with the adblocks blocking nonsense. Youtube is usually fine for me. Had to go back and rewatch the end since it just stopped with about a minute or so left.Arcues actually looks alright. The D/P remakes are not what I would have wanted I don't think anyone who has been wanting the remakes would have wanting something that just translates the 2d sprites to 3D chibi models.
Reading through the comments seems the stream was just shit. Everyone had the stuttering and the sudden early end. Hoping the Emulation is gonna be good for these. I need to get back to trying to stop Sword from crashing.

>>247990 I wanted gen 4 remakes on par with HG/SS not OR/AS (which is what we're getting) and I definitely never wanted open world faggotry because open world games are 90% always total fucking cancer. Pokemon Snap is fine though
I'd like to point out how they spent the first six and a half minutes filling time. So this event was basically 13 and a half minutes long. Why even bother? Just release a few trailers or show it in the Direct that happened a few days ago.

>>247911 I won't deny that the game had some nice things going for it, but it did have some serious flaws bringing it down. Also, remember that IGN's Audrey Drake or whatever her name is gave the game a perfect score and then ended up working for Nintendo later on. That's a big hmm... >>247990 Oy vey! >>248014 I never got the appeal of Pokemon Snap, but I think it's nice that the the thirst of its fans may finally be quenched. But I am surprised some autist never took remaking the game into their own hands. Seriously, it's an on-rails picture taking game. Even when you take into account how difficult it is to make a game, that's one of the easier ones to make.

I wish Pokemon didn't "kill" the monster collecting/fightan' genre, like World of Warcraft killed MMOs. We could be getting stuff like turnbased tactics monster collectors, ghetto anime fighters, etc., but because of Pokemon, a lot of companies want a piece of that pie. >>248142 >>248143 How's this pic then?
They are finally doing an open world Pokemon with Arceus. People calling it Pokemon's Breath of the Wild moment which I don't like for obvious reasons. Base BotW felt like an undercooked game with detached mechanics that got rushed a year too early. Also started that 100+ collectables trend that they put for the rest of the Nintendo franchises afterwards. Won't come out till early 2022 so there is time to make it work. I've been hoping they do something new with Pokemon since it's been needing it for at least a decade now. Maybe they'll do a Pokemon MMO for the 30th anniversary. Also, I've got to say, looking at the Pokemon channel for the first time in a while, didn't think they'd be partnered with Post Malone for a virtual Pokemon concert. It's just not something I'd associate with Pokemon until I saw it happening before my eyes.

Can't even compare to things like Star Fox 64. It's mainly a small Pokemon theme park ride that you complete in a weekend and then don't play much again. I think people remember it as being more than it was because they were retarded 7 year olds at the time. It's just alright.

(72.08 KB 484x471 skele contemplate.jpg)
Cautiously optimistic about the new games, but without Iwata to save them like with GSC, I don't expect much. You know, I think the Pokemon franchise is built on the success of one good game and on great game, with the rest being mediocre. Like Star Wars. The first movie was good, the second movie was great, everything else was average, but Empire is the lynchpin that holds the entire franchise together as something "good" or relevant. The same is true for RBY(G) (Star Wars) and GSC (Empire) with everything else being average but held up because people are exceedingly fond of those first two. >>247919 >They can't be worst even if you didn't like them since BotW had objectively the worst dungeons in the series. BOTW cannot have the worst dungeons if it had no dungeons at all.
>>248365 >Can't even compare to things like Star Fox 64 6 levels per playthrough, same as Starfox. You have to have full 3D awareness until you've memorized the levels. There are also complex level triggers. In addition, it's more like a timed puzzle game, than a shooter.
My id keeps changing. >>248365 >Hey You, Pikachu! is a great game and isn't talked about enough. I'm surprised Game Freak didn't capatalize on that kind of game more. We got a couple Pokemon Ranger games, but that's pretty much it. What was the name of that Sony game where you have a giant monster as a companion? I'm talking stuff like that. >>248386 >I think the Pokemon franchise is built on the success of one good game and on great game, with the rest being mediocre. Like Star Wars. That's a very interesting way of looking at Pokemon.
>>247999 >removing perfectly good side content and mechanics and dumbing down others is "doing what the fans wanted" >being so bad at using a 3D engine, you make hundreds of identical models for a single character in most cutscenes they're in Plebbit's two doors down, cocksucker. >>248000 This game wishes it was half as good as the Third Reich, and I'm not even a NatSoc-fag. >>248052 So typical fantards sucking cock like usual. This is now Steam Communities-tier faggotry. >>248223 It's gonna be shit on a technical and gameplay level, so whether they'll engage in censorship is (almost) irrelevant. <Pokemon DP remake Looks "okay", but not only will I not buy it no matter what these cocksuckers do, there's no way they can satisfy me with this because they already ruined the franchise with Sword and Shield, and all I see are the fucking platitudes kikes have shat out time and time again in situations like this. The art is a weird mixture of fine and dogshit, as it's a shit design choice done in probably the best way they could've managed. I've done enough crying about the state of the series in this thread, but I can't fucking believe that they fucked up the franchise so badly, that they announced a remake of my favorite region and I'm not only not excited, I'm fucking pissed about it. If I told myself this a decade ago, I'd think I was a lying cocksucker. They will never actually make a game that will please me anymore, but fuck it, I'll still keep tabs on this inevitable piece of shit. Maybe they'll ruin PMD for the fuck of it, who knows. In case anyone's curious, the closest to an ideal remake for Sinnoh would be: >not basing it on DP, for fuck's sake; no Pokeshit fan is actually doing the trading shit like intended, so just don't even bother designing the games with game-specific Pokemon anymore and for remakes, base it on the third version >stop the fucking chibi nostalgia-pandering bullshit, this shit was a design limitation and there's no need for it anymore; use the same model for fields and battles >ape the original artstyle of the human characters as much as you can, in fact make the game look like if someone remade the anime in 3D >obviously, keep in all of the mechanics that were the original game as a starting point, then only replace them with any changes later on if they were actually beneficial (make the Running Shoes a toggle like in HGSS, for example). >>248386 I wish I could the same, but I'm so fucking disgusted with their actions, I only have faith that they'll make it shit.
>>248393 >>248386 >RBY saved the franchise! Pretty roundabout way of being a genwunner
>>248365 It was Pokemon in 3D, and it wasn't just one small part of the main game (plus a few minigames) but in 3D, like Stadium was. You got to see Pokemon actually doing stuff in 3D, and explore the world, sorta, in 3D. And it was the closest we got for years. On top of all that, it's a competent game. It's too short, but it has just enough depth (both in taking good pictures and getting to the secret endings, which are more like puzzles than tests of your shooting ability) to give you a little more than at first glance, at least. Starfox 64 is also quite a short game, even with alternate paths and stuff. That genre generally is. And games back then were typically shorter than today. They were rapidly increasing in length during that generation, but it wasn't unheard of to still get games that were only like two hours long, which was the norm in the generation previous. We might forget this now, since now the games we remember frequently weren't the norm, but the best of the best, and sometimes genres that weren't even popular at the time (like RPGs, unless you were Japanese). Back then it was much more common to have relatively short games, so that criticism, while I agree with it, doesn't hurt the game that much. New one is gonna be shit though because it is gonna be filled with 20 years of shit pokemon. I just want Pokemon Snap 1 but with enough extra levels to get all 151 in there. Maybe Gen II can come too. That's it.
>>248404 He said Gen II was better, idiot. He is right though. Those are the two really good ones. Platinum might actually be my favorite, but Gen III was so bad, and removed so much stuff from II, that I never even played Diamond and Pearl. I hear they're much worse than Platinum. The later ones all have significant problems that people here seem to generally agree upon, so I don't need to argue about it.
>>248412 D/P are "much worse" in that they're two versions of the same game that would later get an objectively superior rerelease, and I don't know anything that gen 3 removed in comparison to 2 (aside being able to explore two regions). Overall, gens 3-5 are great games that removed shit in-between generations for no good reason; it's annoying as fuck, but they managed to still be great despite those baffling decisions; it's only from gen 6 onwards where the games become truly mediocre, and then just shit.
>>248421 >and I don't know anything that gen 3 removed in comparison to 2 (aside being able to explore two regions). Oh christ, I'm so sick of hoennbabbies. Let's see how many I can remember off the top of my head again... >being able to go back to old regions >being able to battle with previous generations >being able to trade with previous generations >real time clock with morn/day/night cycle and days of the week cycle (good luck getting Espeon and Umbreon, faggot). >being able to actually get all the old pokemon >actually having a story that was actually connected to the previous games, story being pretty important in a JRPG. Even if this is one of the less story heavy series in the genre, it was cool to see what happened to the world three years after the previous adventure, and see that the previous adventure actually had significant effects on the world. In Gen II (and of course Gen I), if you wanted to get every pokemon, you catch 'em all and then trade with your friends who had the alternate versions for the last few. Mew and Celebi were event Pokemon so they were harder but there was only one per game so they were still special. Maybe you already beat Gen I and want to trade over your old guys. Well if you have a second game boy or can borrow a friend's, you can do that. Still a bit of a scam, but it could get much worse. Because when Gen III comes around, you literally could not catch 'em all. These complaints about the most recent games not including all the old pokemon are ridiculous when they're from the same people who defend Gen III, because Gen III did the exact same thing. The only difference is instead of trying to sell you the old pokemon as DLC, they tried to sell them to you by selling you remakes of two of the most popular games of all time, which were only a few years old at the time, so most people already owned them. So go and catch 'em all again, then trade. But wait, that doesn't cover them all. You need to also buy a Gamecube, plus a GC/GBA Link Cable (which was only good for like three games that anyone cared about), then several spinoff games, sometimes special editions of those games, so you could trade over more pokemon that you already caught in a series that was previously backwards compatible but now suddenly wasn't. And don't tell me technical limitations prevented it, because similar technical differences already existed between Gens I and II, and they were still compatible with each other. You could connect a GB or GBC to a GBA just fine, and later games do let you connect from Gen I to fucking Gen VII or whatever. It took until Gen IV to re-add all the things that Gen III took out, and that was only because they did remakes of Gen II, the games from before Gen III took out everything.
>>248475 >not shitting on gen 3 means I'm a "hoennbaby" Sure, faggot. <being able to actually get all the old pokemon Kanto remakes and the Hoenn games make this (almost) possible, you just can't transfer your pre-gen 3 Pokemon in-specific to gen 3, not with any official tools, anyway. <real time clock with morn/day/night cycle and days of the week cycle (good luck getting Espeon and Umbreon, faggot). That doesn't seem to make getting those Pokemon actually impossible to get, just not in FR/LG. <actually having a story that was actually connected to the previous games... That doesn't sound like a removal, just an aspect of the writing you rightfully wish came back in those games. The other points I didn't mention are true, though. >You need to also... Only for 6 particular Pokemon (Mew, Ho-Oh, Lugia, Celebi, Jirachi, and Deoxys). <the argument against Sword/Shield is ridiculous because "gen 3 did it first" >implying that this excuses it Kill yourself. You're not wrong that gen 3 did similar things (albeit better), but you're a fucking dumbass for using that to dismiss the rightful criticism Sword/Shield got for this. Not to mention, from gen 3 onward, they recified this and make inter-generation transfer possible, until gen 8 fucked it all up.
More Platinum stuff has been spotted in BDSP. Maybe maybe we'll get all of Platinum's content though I wouldn't be surprised if some of it is added after launch. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2021/02/pokemon_platinum_content_spotted_in_diamond_and_pearl_remake_trailer https://archive.is/d0lFO

I'm a Gen 1 and I haven't picked up Pokemon since Gen 4. Most oldfags should have stopped at Gen 5. Why continue to support a series that's on a steady decline? Having bad taste is okay but refusing to refine said taste as an adult is NPC-tier.
if LA is set in the past... does that mean that its from when people and pokemon married each other?
>>248542 also there is the thing that the logo on the protagonists sleeves is basically the team galaxy logo made out of the kanji for silver, gin... which is you add the kanji for river you get ginga... silver river... which means GALAXY.
>>248542 But can pokemon consent to marriage?
>>248594 If we are looking at this at an intelligence levels then it gets a bit complicated as Pokemon are either really fucking dumb or super intelligent. >Pikachu: Don't be a dog fucker. >Mew: Mew would be the dog fucker in the relationship as they are smarter than trainers.
>>247999 To sell more games, Jewtendo cuts every Pokemon generation into 2 main games which are the same exept for the type of Pokemon you can catch in them. After those 2 games have sold like hotcates, they release a third main game, which includes all the new Pokemon of a generation plus additional side content and extra story. Since the 3rd Generation, they are also producing remakes of older generations(because they fucked up backwards compatibility) which include "gameplay improvements", but of course they don't include the content of the superior 3rd game of each generation. For over a decade now Pokemon fans have been salty over the botched "gameplay improvements" these remakes have gotten and the lack of content from the superior 3rd games. This gets combined with the drop in quality each Pokemon game has compared the the previous generations, so every Pokemon fan has his own cut off date when he has had enough of Pokemon.

Not only does it make it impossible to evolve your Eevee into an Espeon or Umbreon, but more to the point, it removed a major gameplay feature. It made the game much more immersive, and they removed it. But I don't need to actually explain why it was cool. You said you didn't know anything 3 removed in comparison from 2. Well, this is an example. >That doesn't sound like a removal, just an aspect of the writing you rightfully wish came back in those games. It's a JRPG, so story is a significant factor. The previous game, the first sequel in the series, set this expectation. Later games would do it a little, though never as good as Gen II. Gen III didn't do it at all. Instead we're left with what is basically headcanon of people saying that Gen III takes place at the same time as Gen I, because you can trade with the remakes without a time machine, which you needed in Gen II. But of course really they just fucked up. There are so many contradictions of previously established canon in Gen III that you have to basically consider it a completely different universe from Gens I and II. In Gen II, Pokemon Eggs being discovered is a major plot point, along with 100 new pokemon being discovered in the last three years. In Gen III, everyone's always known about Pokemon Eggs and there are infinite Pokemon but you're literally not trying to catch 'em all, but instead only trying to catch the ones local to you. The thing about Eggs especially would have been easy to follow. And it was such a major plot point in the previous game. The bit about discovering new pokemon also could have been followed as well with any manner of possible story points, but they didn't give a shit. It's especially notable because the previous game in the series did give a shit about its story. And it's a JRPG, so story is important. >implying that this excuses it No, I'm saying you shouldn't be surprised. They've been fucking you for years and you just sat there and took it, until they pulled a Hoenn 2 and removed as much shit as they did in Gen III again. And you certainly shouldn't defend Gen III if you hate the things it did. What I always see is people just pretending III didn't do them. Probably because they're underage faggots who literally never played I or II and don't know what we all missed out on. >Not to mention, from gen 3 onward, they recified this and make inter-generation transfer possible, until gen 8 fucked it all up. The inter-generation transfer was never as good as it was between I and II. And slowly-re-adding features that Gen II had isn't exactly a godsend. It's just slowly making things slightly less shitty. It's like thanking an abusive spouse for hitting you slightly less over time.

>>249470 >the "open-world pokemon game" people have been dreaming of for decades is actually a shit idea It's not a shit idea. Pokemon is very well suited to being open world. The problem is that it will be poorly executed.
>>249470 HGSS had a good level curve and Kanto in that game was mostly open.
>>249526 >Pokemon is very well suited to being open world. Depends on what you're after when you play the game. Pokemon has the potential to be a fun but simple tournament game, like in Stadium. However, that requires a lot of time spent on the meta-game parts, like choosing your team and what moves are available. If it wants to be a good open-world exploration game, I think it would have to change significantly from what most people would consider the core mechanics -- although you could argue that it's less "core mechanics" and more "GF is too lazy to innovate."

>>249527 everything after victory road was still pretty underleveled in HGSS. Definite improvement on GSC, but still weak.

>>249571 The solution is to split the games proper. You want gathering and straight story, head to Pokémon 1: with all the open world shit, different AI behavior patterns (herd/pack movements, hunting times, migration patterns, mating seasons, etc etc etc). Let that game be about the wilds, and plug it with the shit that would populate an open world scenario: Frontier town issues, exploratory missions for lazy-ass scientists, fetch quests for eggs or berries or stones of rare/unique note, discovery of new species of Pokémon, etc. The Legendaries would also be the primary "story" drive for this iteration, and while mechanics are geared toward open world play, there's a foundation that will cross into game 2. With online play features meaning you & mates can hunt packs, take on group missions, or attempt to do a post-game raid to understand why the fuck it's no longer so damned simple to capture Mewtwo in Cerulian Cave, thereby giving Legendaries their due gravity and gameplay incentive. Game 2 needs to be all about tourney and actually climbing the ranks in the Pokémon League. Put the bracket shit here. Turn the gyms from "I am teh master of x pokémon" scenarios where 10 year old run over grown adults with starting Pokémon into tutorial tests to see if you have the mechanics down before you take on the Elite Four, whose mechanics & teams can and will wipe the floor with the unprepared, as well as the region champ. Then have a Nationals Mode that replaces the online competitive, up to and including an actual tourney toward a point in the year that has actual dlc content prizes behind winning said Nationals. >What about cheating and logistics I'm just spitballing I don't give that deep of a shit.
>>249657 That's not splitting a game into 2, it's making 2 separate games. Gamefreak would rather kill you than consider something like that.
>>249661 Slap both into the same region, make the team trade workable and user-friendly, keep the microtransactions away, and GF execs would cease to give a shit as more than just the hardcore demo suddenly pick up both games at once. No one cares about the workers, they're damn-near slave labor anyway. Also the fuck am I having to captcha each post for?
