Good morning gamers

I actually tried Skyrim a few weeks ago and now I'm obsessed with it, so I'm 8 years late to this hype train but it's cool

My experience with Skyrim is quite recent, as I bought it in May. I mean it was definitely fun for awhile, but then I became obsessed with playing Death Road To Canada (and of course a totally small upcoming recent game called Minecraft, you may of heard of it...).

Going back to Skyrim, the graphics even for its time aren’t great and the story isn’t as grand or epic as they wanted it to be, and it’s so much of a buggy glitchy mess I’m surprised I could buy this legally, but man if I said I didn’t sink hours into the game, I would be lying.

As someone who has never played Skyrim, the true wonder of Skyrim to me is that everyone seems to agree it's a buggy mess that often fails to function but no one can stop themselves from sinking hundred of hours into the game.

hi
I've played Skyrim, gotten obsessed with it, and then gotten bored of it... But I am thinking of playing Oblivion for the first time either today or tomorrow. Hopefully it's not aged too badly!

I'd never really experienced the bugs of Skyrim until recently:
1. Sanguine is just chilling in Morvunskar, killing the Master Vampire that I need to kill for my quest. Thanks, you prick.
2. Whenever I get the slowed-time caused by raising my shield during an enemy's power attack, the game is stuck that way and I can't do shit.
3. The floor in front of the shortcut door in Morvunskar doesn't exist, so I just fall through to the entrance.

Despite Skyrim being a buggy, ugly mess, I can't help but love it and want to play Oblivion/Morrowind.

I just wrote the Brock battle in Ori's Gift. It's not tomorrow's chapter -- it'll come the week after -- but it's a fun ride...

...literally.

What do I mean? Well, let's just say that the chapter's current title is "Wraith Rodeo." A battle that was nothing but a Bellsprout curbstomp in-game has become a true spectacle in the written version.

That chapter also contains some interesting worldbuilding based on the Lorelocke that @RubyClaw made, regarding the three fossil Pokemon of Kanto Gatto. Also inspired by Twitch Plays Pokemon, because I've been crazy for TPP ever since their second run and I will never stop making TPP references. One of the two fossils I obtained in-game made it onto the final team, although I won't spoil which one...

hi
So there's a huge amount of monolocke runs being done for the UCL event right now, which is pretty neat (partly influenced by a certain discord server). It's like we've all become gym leaders...

Also I tried to stream Oblivion using discord's go live feature and no video would show up, just a black screen. Is frustrating : (

We should totally do a Nuzlocke GYM League! I remember doing something like that on an old forum I frequented.

Yo that would be hype.
Not to overestimate my own forum-political clout, but I'd totally be down to be the Poison gym leader.

I'm taking the phrase "forum-political clout" and using it. But yeah, a league could be fun. If anyone wants to get one running, let me know! I'd be happy to run support.

Well, since Twitch Plays Pokemon is playing Pokemon Sword on Nov. 23, and I want to watch them futz around with the PC function always being available, BUT I still want to nuzlocke Shield blind... I will be attempting to complete a blind Shield nuzlocke within a freakin' WEEK.

May God have mercy.

decided I'm gonna do a "set team" nuzlocke of very probably Shield. As in, not catching anything but the five (+ starter) mons decided on at the beginning. Lets me pick what I'll play with while still having some kind of catching challenge.

I'd considered doing a set team for a Shield run, and planned to use Obstagoon, Polteageist, Alcremie, Galarian Rapidash, Eldegoss, and either Sobble or Scorbunny, but then the idea of the blind nuzlocke came up and while I went back and forth on it for a while, I eventually realized that I'd literally never get the chance to nuzlocke Shield blind again, so that summoned my inner daredevil and I decided, what the heck. I'll do it. And I'll do it in a week, if humanly possible, because I don't want to miss Twitch Plays Pokemon acting like idiots with this game.

I'm buying both Sword and Shield (first time I'm doing that for any pokemon game, the Nuzlocke fever has gotten me bad it seems). I'm sure I'll blind it as this will be my only chance (and I love blind runs), though I'm still not sure if A) I'll do a posted run or not, I'm sadly way too busy with rl and have Kantonian Fables going on as well which I don't have enough time to work on as is and really want to focus my efforts on B) Which game I'll start with. I'm leaning towards Shield (I managed so far to avoid spoilers quite nicely so it is purely based on the Box Legend and the little I did hear). Not even sure which starter I'll pick. I'll decide the moment I'll have to I guess.

I totally could do a blind run of these games. I would honestly kind of like to, especially since blind runs are such a rare experience. But then...I'm not planning to buy either of them. So...I'm blind on games I'm not planning to play. Feels kinda bad, to be honest.

Though she often appears sweet and polite, the smell of wrong opinions may cause this pokemon to latch bite.
Y'all are some badass motherfuckers for wanting to nuzlocke blind. I personally have never nuzlocked blind and I don't quite see the allure? If I'm playing a pokemon game for the first time, I wanna take that time to build a new team, enjoy myself, relax, and explore a new region and new pokemon. You can't really relax and jsut enjoy the game if I'm stressing the entire time over the potential of dying at the feet of the next random trainer? Maybe it's just cause I'm stupid bad at nuzlockes, I'm sure they're a lot less stressful for the folks who consistently come out with sub-5 deaths.
