Review: POKKEN TOURNAMENT DX

Image
Let’s finish off this Pokemon Week with yet another spin-off title. This time, it's Pokken Tournament. Pokken was first released back in 2015 for Wii U, with an “expansion pack” of the game going by the name of Pokken Tournament DX releasing in September last year. It’s the Expansion pack for Nintendo Switch that I’m reviewing today.

The game is a 3D fighter in the style of Namco Bandai's usual style for their fighting games. Have you played games like Naruto Shippuden Ninja Storm, Soul Calibur or Tekken, I can’t see you have a problem to get into this game. The game works smoothly and is easy to understand. For any new potential player reading this, I recommend you to start with Pikachu. The electric mouse is the easiest to start with out of all the 21 Pokemon (23 if you count DLC).

Pokken Tournament, no matter what version you purchase, is a game best suited for multiplayer. Yes, there is a single player mode such as “story mode,” which is only online play and tournaments wit…

Opinion: Why POKEMON STADIUM Needs to Return

Image
I can imagine some reactions right now. Going from being confused, horrified or downright shocked. Getting nightmares from the days of old on how a simple random trailer could be so horrifying because you were afraid that a gamble you took would fail miserably.

For you that wonder what I’m talking about, let me give you some context. On August 1, 1999, Pokemon Stadium was released in Japan, with a western release one year later. While there isn't a story to follow or Pokemon to catch, there is still the access to defeat gym leaders and different types of tournaments. You also have the chance to play some small variety of mini-games or play free battles again your friends or computer. The way you had access to Pokemon was to either pre-build Pokemon that the game gave you to use or your Pokemon from a Gameboy color game if you connected them via a transfer pack. One year later, a sequel was released, which pretty much is the same game but with the access to generation two Pokemon an…

REVIEW: Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness

Image
Pokemon XD Gale Darkness is a sequel to Pokemon Colosseum. It takes place in the same region, but a couple of years after the events that happened in the previous game. While you don’t play as the same character as before, the objective is still the same, and the use of only double battles is here as well.

How does it compare compared to Colosseum? It has its advantage towards it, but also disadvantages.

Unlike ColusseumGale of Darkness allows you to save wherever you are, compared to Coliseum who hade the idiotic inclusion of save stations. Something that Gale of Darkness also has improvements on is about purification (which is the part of how you heal the monsters). Here in Gale of Darkness, you have something called the purify chamber, something Colusseum never had. In this chamber, the player is allowed to purify nine pokemon at the same time.

In the prequel, the only option was fighting, walking, or buying massages; while I didn’t have anything against it being the only thre…

New Trailer for ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Released

Alita: Battle Angel is one of those movies that I can’t wait to watch. With the third trailer now released, my anticipation for this movie has been raised a lot. As a fan of both the manga and the ova, I can’t wait to watch this.

First ELSEWORLDS Promo Rewrites Arrowverse History

Image
There is a lot to look forward to if you are a DC Comics fan. Be it Aquaman and Joker on the big screen, or Gotham and the Arrowverse on the smaller screen. The latter one has now released a small teaser for their upcoming "Elseworlds" event, featuring Oliver Queen and Iris West. To put it lightly, they're taking the "Oliver Queen and Barry Allen swapping places" concept very seriously.

Review: POKEMON COLOSSEUM

Image
In Colosseum, you follow the protagonist of Wes, a mysterious young man that becomes the keystone to stop an evil organization that does evil experience with Pokemon.

With me reviewing Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Crystal, some of you probably thought that Emerald was next. You were close to being right since I was a finger snap from doing so. However, looking through the pile of Pokemon games, I realized that I owned some that deserves more recognition. One of them is Pokemon Colosseum.

Besides being the first 3D Adventure game for Pokemon (as well as the first home console RPG), Colosseum is breaking the mold when it comes to a typical Pokemon game. There is traditional fighting (although all of them is double and not single like most usually are nowadays). However, there are no gym leaders or elite four. The main plot is about stopping this organization mentioned in the synopsis.

The way of capturing Pokemon? Steal the Pokemon that have been an experiment on so you can cure them of…

First DETECTIVE PIKACHU Trailer Released

Image
The idea of a live action Pokemon is something I’ve personally been against from day one. The reason for that is I’ve always felt the design doesn’t work for CGI which would be needed.  So you can understand my reaction when I’ve heard the news about a live-action adaptation of the spin-off game of Detective Pikachu

Flash forward to today, and we have the first trailer to the movie. Had this been an animated film, it would have sold me right on the go. However, this movie is not animated. I was not a fan of how the Pokemon looked, but who knows. Maybe they will look better once the movie is released. It's a few months away after all.
