General Discussion / Minecraft Server
« on: Yesterday at 10:29:20 pm »
This week I rebuilt my PaperSpigot-based Minecraft server from the ground up. Featuring 11 different worlds, MCMMO, an economy, creative building contests, and much, much more.

Over the past week-and-a-half, the Pokemon Company and Game Freak have been undergoing processes that hint at what the next Pokemon game will be. Over the past week, Nintendo has trademarked naes for both "Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu" and "Pokemon Let's Go! Eevee", registered domain names for each game, and updated their own website with a Pikachu and Eevee-based template. Logos have also been found for each game, featuring an Eevee and a Pikachu tail, respectively.

This, in addition to a number of cryptic tweets featuring Pikachu and Eevee from Masuda, seem to indicate that the next main-line Pokemon game, for the Nintendo Switch, will be known as "Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu" and "Pokemon Let's Go! Eevee".

An early report from Emily Rogers outlines the new game's features, and they seem to be fairly different than past games.

According to the report, the games will feature...
  • Following Pokemon
  • Pokeride from Alola
  • Pokemon Go integration
  • Catching that works like Pokemon Go
  • An accessory to link Go and Let's Go
  • A new story, based in Kanto, possibly set after the events of R/B/Y
  • An online hub for trainers

A screenshot of the new game was also leaked (attached below), though it's unclear how real this screenshot is. It's important to note the presence of visible wild Pokemon in the overworld -- perhaps this is the "Pokemon Go-style catching" that the leak mentioned? It's hard to say at this point.

What are your guys' thoughts on this? Personally, I'd be hype to go back to Kanto for a new adventure, though I do have some reservations. I'm not a fan of involving Pokemon Go in a huge way, and if they fail to add any new Pokemon, I'll likely be disappointed. However, a new Pokemon game is something that I'm always going to be excited about, no matter what.

Discuss.

Pokémon Discussion / Pokemon Direct - June 6th, 2017
« on: June 06, 2017, 12:00:36 am »
Will update this thread as the direct progresses.

10:58 PM PST, 6/5: In case you didn't hear from earlier today, a Pokemon Direct was announced earlier today, detailing an upcoming 8-minute Pokemon-centric Nintendo Direct. This direct will be live-broadcasted on Nintendo's Twitch and YouTube channels at 7 AM PST/10 AM EST. Speculation includes everything from a Diamond/Pearl remake, to Sun/Moon sequels, to a Gold/Silver Virtual Console release, to a dual release of Pokemon "7th Gen, third edition" on Nintendo Switch, and 3DS. It's important to note, that, the last time we got a direct of around this length, Sun and Moon were announced. The timing of this direct is curious, as the direct comes the week before E3 -- surely Nintendo wouldn't announce a game of this magnitude right before E3?

06:57 AM, 6/6: It's time.

07:00 AM, 6/6: Starting now.

07:01 AM, 6/6: Japanese Pokken port for the Switch? Wonder if this will come to the US too.

07:02 AM, 6/6: It will!

07:04, 6/6: OH s**t POKEMON ULTRA SUN AND ULTRA MOON. WAS THAT NECROZMA FORMS I SAW?????

07:05, 6/6: Pokken DX has some new characters, including some Pokemon from Gen 7. Looks pretty cool.

07:06, 6/6: Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have Pokemon that didn't appear in the original versions, offers "alternate storyline". Sounds like a Platinum/Emerald type of deal. November release.

07:07, 6/6: Gold and Silver coming to the Virtual Console! Compatible with Pokemon Bank!

07:08, 6/6: It's over. I'm definitely hype for Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon -- I just hope there are a few more changes than what they alluded to in the trailer. Hopefully we'll have more info to come at E3 and beyond!

More to come...

Calendar Events / Christmas/Holiday Season

As we quickly approach midnight for most of the United States and other parts of the world...

Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Happy Kwanzaa - whatever you celebrate, I hope this holiday season treats you all well and that your days are filled with joy.

Tried this out myself when I heard it - using the Z-Powered versions of Memento and Parting Shot will crash your game. Pokemon that have these moves in their moveset have been banned from online play as a result while Game Freak works on a fix.

Definitely something to look out for! Game Freak is usually pretty good with patches (they patched the Lumiose City save bug in X and Y just a week after the games came out) so I don't think this should be relevant for very much longer.

Pokémon Discussion / Competitive Tournament Format
« on: November 15, 2016, 02:43:59 pm »
Has anyone here ever entered a competitive Pokemon tournament before who can detail me on the ruleset? I'm setting up a Pokemon tournament on my college campus and am generally unfamiliar with the ruleset.

Our tournament will probably be an OU format - do we run sets? Best of 3, Best of 5? How long should we expect it to run for?

Video Games Discussion / Nintendo Switch Discussion Thread
« on: October 21, 2016, 04:42:18 pm »
With the reveal of Nintendo's new home/portable console Hybrid, the Switch (reveal trailer can be seen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5uik5fgIaI, a new era in gaming will certainly be ushered in in only a few short months.

For me, the console poses two major questions -

We already know that the console will be the successor to the Wii U, but what about the 3DS? As a home/portable console, I'd have to imagine that Nintendo is planning that the Switch will be the successor to both consoles - why would any developer bother making a game for a strictly portable console (the 3DS), when they can put the same resources into making a game on the Switch, where the same game can be played both on-the-go and at home, on a TV.

What will the backwards compatibility function like? We already know that Wii U games and Wii games will not be compatible with the Switch, but I'd have to imagine Nintendo would include some way (i.e. Virtual Console) to transfer some Wii U treasures over to the Switch. What about Wii U and Wii accessories, like the Pro Controller, Gamepad, and Wiimote? Will those be compatible with the Switch or not? We could be looking at Nintendo entirely throwing out the "innovations" they've made over the past few years with the Wii and Wii U and going back to basics with the Switch - something I think is entirely needed.

Anyway, Switch discussion thread. Prepare your hype accordingly.

I can't seem to find versions of AdvanceMap or AdvanceText that work with Windows 10. The only versions of AdvanceMap/Text that I've downloaded seem to only work with Windows 7.

Is there a fix for this - some way that I can get these tools to work with Windows 10? Or will I have to download another program altogether?

Is anyone here into Minecraft? I have a server that I'm re-working right now, and, upon re-opening, I'd love to see some people from GCL among its members.

Video Games Discussion / 3DS Homebrew Launcher
« on: August 25, 2015, 06:25:15 pm »
Recently, a 3DS exploit involving the 3DS YouTube app was released by Smealum, allowing the user of the exploit to run homebrew software on their 3DS/New 3DS. As of now, the selection of homebrew is small, but extremely helpful. Homebrew applications, at the time of writing, include a Minecraft clone, emulators for NES, SNES, and Gameboy, along with FTP file hosting and other useful tools.

Having downloaded and used the exploit myself, I can say that (and even though I sound like a canned review right now) the release of the Homebrew Launcher to the public will have a dramatic affect on the amount of homebrew applications available to the public. Basically, now that an exploit involving a commonly-installed app (YouTube) has been released to the public, I fully expect 3DS Homebrew to blow up in a few months time.

A tutorial on how to install the 3DS Homebrew Launcher and applications can be found here: https://smealum.github.io/3ds/

Pokémon Discussion / Competitive Battling
« on: February 03, 2015, 11:04:01 am »
Is anyone here into competitive training (EV training, IV breeding, etc) and competitive battling? I've been getting into it for a while and I've gotten pretty efficient at EV training and I've been wanting to test my skill against some more-experienced battlers rather than just the Battle Maison.

Also, general competitive battling discussion thread.

Forum Discussion / A Very Small Issue
« on: May 11, 2014, 12:42:28 am »
This isn't too much of a complaint or a feedback message rather than a request. Heed as you wish.
Anyone think we could bring back the "users on today" thing at the bottom of the forum? It used to display what users had accessed the site over the entire day. Kind of a cool thing that I liked. I liked being able to see how active the forum was and stuff.

It isn't really too important, but it's a minor thing that I'd like to see brought back, however pointless it might be.
