What is this Pokemon in the Sun and Moon trailer?

My favorite part of any new Pokémon game is seeing the new batch of creatures and inevitably getting into kerfuffles about how great or terrible they are, depending on who you ask. Some of us still have strong thoughts about make-bel...

Action oriented Valkyria: Azure Revolution is still looking beautiful

Valkyria: Azure Revolution is one of my top anticipated games right now. That qualifier doesn't necessarily include the timeline of "2016," as the game is only slated for a nebulous fourth quarter release in Japan, and hasn't even been conf...

Pokemon Sun and Moon site opens, more info coming May 10

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

 
Samsneeze

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

 
Torchman

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

 
Lex

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

 
Nekrosys

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

 
Torchman

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

 
WryGuy

Vita vs PSP. Go. Nonono. Not the PSP Go. Just go.

 
Gamemaniac3434

Hey, just a streamin thing. free to join me for some REmake, ask me some questions about Microbiology and whatnot if you are interested.

 
Nekrosys

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

 
Steven Hansen

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

 
Osc

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

 
Vadicta

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

 
TheBlondeBass

Im so sorry GM, I should have been a better trainer for you... I mean, you had shitty moves and stats, but maybe if we got to talk to each other, understand each other, things wouldnt have come to this...

 
Chris Bradshaw

Hey heres a random thought, remember Nintendo TVii? Me neither.

 
Jinx 01

When people complain that Gotham doesnt fit the Batman continuity I have to ask... which continuity? I mean, how many goddamn versions of the Batman continuity are there? At least Gotham is trying something different (and doing it quite well imo).

shameless plug! Anyone interested in Koihime Enbu on PC, a friend is running a double elimination tournament on Wed at 6pm GMT. Its an open competition so if you want to join, just sign up!

Meanwhile, Bo watches me kill a bunch of shit, and hes all Good going, man. And when I say Yeah! in return, hes all, Revel in it. You earned it, brotha. Best husbandu confirmed.

Is anybody else pretty scrubby at Street Fighter V? They killed what I loved about Gief in IV and now Im in a rut. My PSN is TurboThrill. Hit me up.

 
whatsacow

I actually think the Wii-U is the worst console I have ever owned. Ive played maybe 10 games I like on it, but only 3 are actually Wii-U games and not virtual console games, and only 1 of those is actually made by Nintendo.

 
jak2364

You guys report on Notch saying some stuff on Twitter, but you dont bother reporting on Notch reading Notch X Minecraft fanfiction on Witwixs stream today? Fucking Game Journalism man, really need to get yalls priorities straight. :)

Dear Laptop, I know you hate being cleaned but if you dont stop making that whining noise with your fan because I cleaned out the vents, I will take you in for repairs. You have been warned.

 
Lex

To Doom or not to Doom ... thats the question. Sometimes I hate my life.

 
Nekrosys

Lets be real, here. Rinkah x Kaze is, by far, the best ship. I refuse to hear otherwise.

Overwatch.

Beautiful.

 
medicamecanica

Disappointed in how the Overwatch micro stuff works. I expected it, but if I pay real money to support the game, I expect to get to PICK what I want. Not this gamble crap.
