…So, I may be pushing Power Rangers Guardians of Gaia back a little. Why? Well, because when I get into a franchise again, I tend to get into it so much that I become a bit single-minded on it. What I’m saying is…I started a Digimon fic. 😛
It is entitled Digimon Adventure DM, and, much like a lot of versions of Digimon shows, games, and manga, takes place in its own continuity. It’s actually an idea I’ve had bouncing around for a few years now, and I’m happy to see that I’ve finally found the time to make it happen. The Digimon presented will be a balance between the old, the new, the rarely seen on the show, and some that are completely made up. Also, while it mostly sticks to the English translations of the show and the terminology used there, because some of the translations don’t make much sense, and because some Digimon, their names, and their attack names have MULTIPLE translations, the names that I’ve chosen to use might not seem to have much of a pattern to them, but don’t worry too much about it. I’ll also be posting bios of the characters in the fic to Deviant Art, and I’ve already done so with the main lead, so feel free to click the image below to read more about him.
Anyway, the main thing I wanted to talk about here is that, while I have an idea of the general story I want to tell, and have already decided on the Digimon the kids in this story will use, I’m more than open to suggestions of Digimon that can appear as enemies in the story. Now, I can’t guarantee that every Digimon that is suggested will make an appearance, but I’ll certainly take each and every suggestion under advisement, and I might even be willing to credit those who make certain requests in the Author’s Notes at the end of a chapter. As such, feel free to post requests in the comments section below.
So yeah, that’s all there is to this. Be sure to check out the story if you’re a Digimon fan, and lemme know what you think of it. Ja né!
So a long while ago, it was unveiled that Nintendo trademarked something called Pokkén Fighters, and an image was making the rounds of Lucario and Blaziken about to throw down in the middle of some city. Naturally, the rumour mill being what it is, EVERYONE was speculating as to what this was, though most of us guessed it was some type of fighting game. Well, it turns out we were right, as The Pokémon Company president, Tsunekazu Ishihara, officially revealed Pokkén Tournament, an arcade game that may see release outside the arcade later on, which is actually being developed by Bandai Namco, complete with producers from both the Tekken and Soul Calibur series, though it appears the Tekken side of things is the one with the most focus, as Pokkén is clearly (and I can’t believe I didn’t notice this sooner) a combination of the words Tekken and Pokémon. And oh yes, there was a trailer.
…Well, been a while since I tossed out this little gem, but guess what?! *inhales deeply*
So, let’s take a look! First off, the only playable fighters confirmed thus far are Lucario and Machamp, though I would imagine Blaziken may be playable as well due to that image we saw a while back. The graphics and animation look great, and while the action seems to incorporate a lot of each Pokémon’s signature moves, they don’t necessarily seem limited to them either. That’s probably for the best, since this is a completely different genre of game, and it would neither shock nor bother me if types didn’t play a part in this either. Also, we manage to catch a glimpse of Mega Lucario near the end. Is this a completely different fighter, a transformation, or perhaps part of some kind of finishing move? Only time will tell, but I do hope that if it’s a transformation that the Pokémon who can’t Mega Evolve will have a means by which to close the gap with those who can.
The game is scheduled for release in arcades in 2015. Again, though, it was implied that there MIGHT be non-arcade release later on. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. Until then, leave your thoughts and comments below, and we’ll see what happens in 2015. Ja né!
