Chit Chat Thread

Okay, so it's great that everybody wants to chat again, but this has lead to lot of off topic posting. So I have decided to resurrect the long dead Chit Chat Thread for all your chatting needs!

Anyways, has anybody else been watching Twitch Plays Pokemon? It's strangely addictive...

Roloc, you're not alone. If I wanted to watch chaos, I would go to my parents house, which is guaranteed to be much more entertaining.

I would've never thought they would come that far. :P

I was actually thinking about the old Chit Chat Thread yesterday. Just the name of this thread brings back so many awesome memories...

So, what is this Twitch Plays Pokemon poop?

It is a livestream with about 60,000 people playing pokemon.

There is a much smaller version of it if you cannot take the chaos.
I hear they recently beat gold and are on pokemon emerald now!

People are able to make the main character move/take actions by entering (the arrows) up, down, left, right, A, B, start and select in a chat box.
Another feature of anarchy and democracy is added. When enough people type anarchy, the game changes to anarchy mode, which means that what people type happens in the order they type it. When enough people type democracy, there is some sort of voting system for what will happen in-game.

But since people are sort of randomly pressing buttons, it's quite random what happens.

I believe they are done with the Red version and are currently 'playing' the Crystal version.

Yeah, they just started Crystal yesterday. I'm actually a pretty big fan of the experiment, as I've been following it since they started Red. If anyone hasn't seen it and was wondering exactly what it is, here's a link: http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon

Twitch Plays Pokemon has been one of the funniest things I've seen.  I still follow the reddit updater for crystal but, I don't watch as much as I did with red.  The crystal playthrough seems to be going almost too smoothly.  But, that's probably because they haven't released Feraligator (LazorGator) yet.

Been watching only a small part of it. It's interesting to a point, but not as much as being able to play by your own self ^^; I mean it's nice and all to see how people react and get together to overcome challenges, but it's not something that can hook up my attention for hours.

And some other people have started doing something similar to twitch plays pokemon after this got so much popularity... Anyway, as long as they have fun xD
No one can go back and change a bad beginning; but anyone can start now and create a successful ending.
If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it. If it cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?

Currently playing Pokemon XY/ORAS/Shuffle and Clash of Clans and testing out PokemonRevolutionOnline and Dragonmon Hunter....
Also, forum notification emails are not getting in my inbox... again...

Yeah, this is true. The hypes pretty much died down now :( Though it has encouraged me to play Fire Red, something which I've never gotten round to before.

I love all of the old games but I just can't bring myself to play them anymore. r/d/y, g/s/c, r/s/e had the old ways of damage. (All fire attacks are special, all ghost attacks are physical, etc.) Makes them very annoying to play for a competitive player since it makes a lot of pokemon useless. Namely Gyarados. Only knows bounce as a stab move because all water attacks are special, even waterfall.

It does make Gengar a nice poke though, even if it can't use shadow ball because it's physical, it can however use the three elemental punches because all three are special attacks. And yeah I played the hg/ss remakes. I love em, but they don't have the "old" feel to them, ya know?

Sounds like you can't make your mind up about what you want in the game :P I'm just gutted that there was no Yellow remake, as it was the first game I owned. Plus Pikachu!

Twitch decided to play nice with my internet, so I decided to give it ago. I guess the run was going pretty smoothly up until we tried to battle Jasmin (this was last Saturday I think.), all of the Pokemon in our party except Feraligatr were under-leveled. We lost pretty quickly. Then "Feraligatr and democracy ruined this run" got spammed in the chat a million times. I would imagine they've made progress since then though.

Also, I think I saw Twitch Plays Mortal Kombat when I was looking for Twitch Plays Pokemon. I think I'm gonna check that out.
