The charmander should have been named Godzilla.

He's not green, though.  You gotta have a green Godzilla!  How about this guy?

I know it got a fairly cold reception, but I really liked SSX Blur.  If you were a fan of the previous versions, I'd definitely recommend it, just make sure you switch the slider to make steering entirely tilt-controlled.

So hey, how many on each side can you have in an online match? It read like it was a 1-on-1 matchup which, honestly, rather sucks for Pokemon. Much better to have 3-vs-3 (like in Colisseum) or more, since that opens up more room for strategy rather than luck.

I haven't done an online battle yet, but I'm almost certain you can have up to 6 on a team, and you can have them scaled to level 50 or level 100.

I think Battle Revolution on the Wii might limit you to 3 on 3, but I can't remember what I read for sure.

As far as I know I'll be able to do it tonight.

I think these are the pending requests:

Starshifter - Turtle named GAMERA
Magik - Houndour, possibly some of the old starters?
Farscry - Charmander


Starshifter, with GAMERA added to your team, I think you just might have to get a Dustox for yourself named MOTHRA

(Or is it blasphemy to mix Japanese monster franchises?)

Once you run out of ammo in the harpoon gun (or any gun for that matter), how do you get more?

Either kill someone that has the same weapon and grab the ammo they drop, or head to one of the resupply points.

Where do you get the hardware sales figures? I couldn't find them on the NeoGaf site when I followed the link at the top of this thread.

They don't have them yet for this week. Scroll down and click on the 4/23-4/29 week, then you'll see hardware sales underneath the software.

Is there a Wii Sports that sells seperately, or is that a direct correlation with the number of Wiis sold?
For some reason Wii Sports is included with the system everywhere but Japan.
Other than Baseball, perhaps the other sports aren't as popular in Japan?
Tennis is huge in Japan, I believe golf is pretty popular as well, and I do remember seeing some bowling alleys when I was there.  No idea about boxing.

I think it more has to do with Nintendo knowing they'd have an easier time gaining acceptance for the Wii in Japan compared to the rest of the world.  As a tech demo and through word-of-mouth, I think Wii Sports was pretty crucial to system's success here.

Besides, the 4/30-5/06 week lists the LTD sales as 1.4million Wii Sports and 2.2million Wii systems.  Two out of three ain't too shabby.

I hear he is captain of a starship.

And fabulous!

There was a fun little interview with Masi "Hiro" Oka on Conan recently where he shows off his great George Takei impression.  Check out the Youtube clip at about the 3 minute mark.

BTW - if you trade eggs, you have full control of the Pokemon when it hatches (as it's considered your Pokemon). Something you might want to keep in mind for further trades.
Didn't think of that.  It's a tradeoff, though, as the XP bonus for using a traded pokemon makes levelling so much faster.

That's also true. The boosted EXP is very nice. You gain 150% of normal exp for each victory. But then you can't control them until you get the badges. *shrugs*

There's an item called an everstone that stops your pokemon from levelling up.  If you had one of those and reached your level cap you could just hold them there until you got to the next needed badge.

How much will this add, single player-wise?

A lot.  There's a huge list of the free and for-purchase in the link in the original post.

I could've passed on the new vehicles, but there's no way I'm going to miss out on that minigun.
9743  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What's that handy German word for yes? Nein, nicht "ja" on: May 10, 2007, 03:24:08 PM
Found it!  I was thinking of doch.

It's usage is a bit different than I remember, it's sort of translates to "on the contrary."

A better watermelon example than the one I originally gave is:

"So you don't want any watermelon?"

In English, "Yes" could mean "Yes, I do want watermelon, dammit." or "Yes, that is true, I don't want any of your damn watermelons."

In German, "Doch!" means, "On the contrary, I do indeed want some sweet, sweet, watermelon goodness."

Oh, and whatever you want, make sure to specify what you want his name to be.  You can only rename pokemon you've caught yourself, so I'd have to name him for you.

YES!  Thanks wonderpug!  All I want is a Turtwig right now.  I want to call him:  GAMERA (in all caps).  How do we go about doing this?  Let me know.  Thanks!

Just make sure my friend code is entered into your Pal Pad, I already have yours entered in.  Then we both go downstairs in a Pokemon Center at the same time, talk to the nice lady behind the counter, then you send me one of those damn chipmunks (or whatever you don't care about) to swap with GAMERA.

I also have some stuff waiting for Magik, does tonight at 9pm Eastern work for you both?

How does it handle with the stock 360 controller? I wont buy a wheel and peddles for a game so I know I'm limiting myself somewhat.

Did you miss the original Forza?  It handled extremely well with the regular controller.  With Gran Turismo it was hard to do incremental amounts of brake/gas with the PS2's pressure sensitive buttons, but the Xbox's analog triggers worked perfectly.

9748  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What's that handy German word for yes? Nein, nicht "ja" on: May 10, 2007, 02:07:02 PM
My mind is completely blanking out.  There's this great German word I can't remember that doesn't have an exact equivalent in English.

In English, if someone asks, "Do you want to buy this watermelon or not?" and you answer, "Yes," there is ambiguity over whether you mean "Yes I would like to buy the watermelon" or "Yes I would not like to buy this watermelon."

In German, there's a handy-dandy word that means "Yes, the positive of two options."  With this word, the watermelon seller knows that your "Yes" means that you want to buy the watermelon.

Anyone know it?

If I remember right, he didn't go out in a blaze of glory in his OO banning either.  Stuff just added up over time.  I did expect there to be a bigger straw to break the camel's back, but then again I haven't been listening in on how much has gone into the repeated warnings he's gotten.

I was pretty impressed at how true the mods here kept to their "everyone gets a clean slate here" policy.  When he first arrived I don't think many people expected him to last as long as he did.

Hey Wonderpug, how have you gotten all the other starter species into your game, like squirtle, bulbasaur, and charmander? Really active trading or something?

I got used copies of Emerald and LeafGreen on the cheap and spent a couple hours replaying the beginning to bring each of the starters over.  Now that I have them, I'm kind of looking forward to playing them through to the end once I've gotten my fill of Diamond/Pearl.  If I had known that Leaf Green was an updated version of the original I would've bought it years ago.
