Reggie will be top tier
It’s been over one year since the Wii U debuted and… things could be a bit better? While not like the hyperbole doomsayers, the Wii U is in need of a boost, and four things come to mind immediately. Let’s look!
So spooky you’ll turn into a ghost type!
Pokemon has always been known for ghost stories and creepypasta, perfect for Halloween but instead of the old hat Lavender Town stories, the Red is dead story, and the Pokemon “Black” (no relation to generation five) story, on this dark and stormy night, let’s hear some ghost stories that never get enough attention.
It’s been nearly two weeks since Pokemon X/Y came out. And while we’ve reminisced about it, and even gave our first impressions on it — I think we’ve had enough time to sit on this game, picking away at it to start up a concise round-table discussion. Arguably, I think Pokemon X/Y is one of the 3Ds’ big hits, rivaling hot games like Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem Awakening as booming fan-favorites. So now that we’re beyond first impressions, how does the new Pokemon game stand up to the highly critical (haha jk), cultured minds of MoarPowah staff? Read on to find out!
It’s been a week since Pokemon X/Y hit stores worldwide–to what appears to be generally favorable reviews. Our very own Inverseman and resident Pokemon master posted his first impressions, and although it’s only a short snippet of a game that can literally take days to complete, there was something about his review that struck me: Pokemon’s nostalgia factor.
It’s also been about 20 years since Pokemon became a household name–20 rather magical years of worldbuilding, spin-offs, movies, merchandise and more. 20 long years and we–arguably the 19 to 20-something year old crowd–still return to this particular universe. So, has Gamefreak hit the jackpot with a stellar profitable idea? Or is it just some innate 90s kid nostalgia that influences us to stand on line from 11 PM to midnight for a mere “child’s” game? Read on for some poetic rambling and a bit of musing on perhaps what makes us–again, that 19 to 20-something year old demographic–return to the world of Pokemon every few years or so.
With the release of Pokemon X and Y, players are going wild to debunk the game’s secrets and Pokemon themselves. Every internet outlet has been exploding with information and now that we have the game in our hands (officially) what can we see from the first few moments of gameplay? Here are five first impressions that stood out to me in the first few moments of gameplay.
Hello everyone — it’s a Sunday, and that means it’s time for another (very late) issue of Fantastic Feasts and Where to Find Them! While we’ve been talking mostly about tasty, tempting dishes that tantalize our imaginary taste-buds and that have inspired several people to try to transmute them into actual, legit foods. And while it’s fun and all to talk about cool things like butterbeer that inspire whimsy and visions equivalent to sugar plums dancing around our heads–sometimes fictional food, quite frankly, sucks.
As much as we love the tasty stuff, we’re also interested in the taboo, the dangerous, the things you probably wouldn’t or shouldn’t eat–because it creates a different kind of tension and tone than if we were sitting at Brian Jacques’ table for lunch. So lets take a glance at what probably isn’t fantastic or feast-worthy, and why it’s actually a pretty cool story point (nd hence, definitely not on the menu for things to try to cook, haha).
