Almost entirely positive! It’s a shame they also got tantrum reviews from Hybrid/Sevenways. (more…)
It’s Halloween! (more…)
Calm responses today.
A “Team Plasma wins” AU that may not be completely awful, a poke-empath who actually focuses on helping pokemon, and a few other semi-interesting things.

Atelier Sophie is a boring game piloted meanderingly by a bland, nothing protagonist and lacking some of the major gameplay functions that make the series interesting. Everything about it feels phoned in, from the character design to the weird clock mechanics. It does have some good side characters, though.
We join the cast on the deck of the boat, headed to the island.
“How sad for you. Like any competitive sport, there is a stake, even if it isn’t saving the wold from an all powerful world ending evil.”
This was in response to me saying it’s wrong to kill people to win a tournament.
“I think that I should challenge the Elite Four,” she had told them, “After all it was what I set out to do, and it is why I continue to push forward,” Valerie stared at the intelligent faces surrounding her, “However, there’s always a chance that you won’t make it,” Her eyes began to sting, memories of the most recent death threatening to push free of her eyes. She fought them back and continued, “I won’t force any of you to fight in those conditions,” Here she took a deep breath she had thought about this for awhile now, “If you would like to back out now, I offer you the opportunity to leave. You can stay in the PC, or even return to your wild homes. I won’t make you fight, and I won’t hate you for leaving,” Valerie’s vision began to blur, and she was staring at her legs, travel worn and strong. She felt a touch from one of her pokemon, and looked up, without fail each pokemon looked her in the eye, and stepped forward, ready to help her achieve her goals.
Nuzlocke authors continue to not understand you can’t transplant epic fantasy stakes into a sports anime.

“I think you’re reffering to the fact I use dashes instead of quotations. That’s my languages way of speaking. Again, I couldn’t be and I can’t be bethoered to change everything. Besides, When I read my first fanfiction in english I had zero problemns adapting my sense of interpretation, so I don’t see why you and other people can’t do the same.” Why do people do this?
An interesting fic from a voltorb’s perspective, and a story with a paralyzed protagonist that completely glosses over all the challenges this would imply.

I have a seven-week break before chemo starts again. Let’s gogogo!
I played Atelier Shallie a while ago now, but I wanted to make a short post for it because I really enojoyed it. I’d say it’s the best main-series game since Meruru, and I think it was better than Ayesha overall.
Good responses today.
A neat oneshot about the Lake fairies, a decent SuMo novelization, and a lot of incoherence.

Someone’s frustrated by Hybrid bringing drama. Responses are otherwise appreciative.
