Not a fan of the art style, Pokemon just looks better celshaded and Sun/Moon already left behind the chibi style which while I adored I was sad to see go, I don't think it's good to go back. The catching mechanic looks like crap, I'm not a fan of Pokemon Go but hey, new gen in 2019 and with the experience of already having one Pokemon game on their belt and meanwhile us GENWUNNERS get to go back to Kanto with shiny new graphics until then. I'm happy, best of both worlds.

I don't have a Switch, so I couldn't play anyway, but that Pokemon game just isn't pulling me in. Don't care for the look either. I like that it's kind of a Gen I feel, though as it does seem to be going back to basics and if I were to get that, I'd SO get Eevee. lol

So, does this mean the 3DS' life span is coming to an end soon?

I think it looks good, I just hope it's not like sun and moon, where the game is SOOOOOOOOOO full of text making the game so boring, and all that could have been avoided with a skip button

There are games slated through 2019 at least, from Nintendo themselves (Sushi Striker out in a few days, WarioWare Gold is next month, and a remake of Bowser's Inside Story in 2019).

That said it does look like they're ramping down things because many of the games you'd expect to be on 3DS (like Pokemon) are showing up on Switch.

Pokemon Quest looks like minecraft level of graphic crap so I’m not gonna bother.

I’m hype for Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee. Guess I have to download Pokemon Go again on my iPhone.

It looks good, but I’m not interested in going back to the Kanto region yet again and I don’t have a Nintendo Switch anyway.

I started to lose interest in Pokemon after Black/White 2. Those two games were the best in the series, imo. Gameplay got repetitive, tedious and dumbed down after that. Last game I played was Alpha Sapphire.

Pokemon Go fans and Genwunners ruined the pokemon franchise. I guess it's [/Ruined Forever] now.

Since Gen 8 was confirmed for 2019 there is a hope it'll knock it out of the park, but with those Go stuff being so successful it's not going to go away anytime soon I bet. The 3DS pokemon games were already disappointing compared to the DS era, and now this is looking even more casual.

These games took away wild pokemon battles, now when you see pokemon in the wild you just throw a pokeball instead of battling them to weaken them first...what the...

I'm yet to play my Pokťmon Sun copy, but didn't Sun/Moon get pretty godo reviews? I know there's no gyms in that game, but there's still some challenge when it comes to catching wild Pokťmon or is it like Pokťmon Go as you mention?

This is a spin-off being labeled as a core game to get Go players hooked into the new games. I don't like Go and only played it for like 10 minutes even though I'm a huge Pokemon fan.

I'm still excited for this game since the real Gen 8 games will come out in 2019 and a 3 year wait is fine, Sun/Moon are still new. GF now has the experience while messing around with this spin-off so yeah, a win-win.

I don't like the art style too much and the lack of battles/go mechanics but hey, I love Gen 1 and being able to visit it again is awesome. A full game would've made many people angry since well there isn't much stuff to do in Gen 1 and they woudl've had to modify it a lot. This will be "babbies first Pokemon game" type of experience with the simplified mechanics. So yeah I'll take what I can get and if it's the only way I can revisit kanto with more modern graphics than the GBA games then i'm all for it.

In other news the rom of the beta version of Pokemon 2:Gold leaked so us GENWUNNERS get even more nostalgic filled crap for now.

^I tested Megaman a bit and it plays well so far, though I’m focusing on Street Fighter (30th Anniv) & Donkey Kong Tropical freeze at the moment.

It’s amazing to see how Street Fighter progressed from SF1-3. The older ones are slow and the new ones’ (SF3 series) animation are so smooth and cartoon like. I love em all it’s still charming.

I’m shocked that SF3: New Generation & SF3:2nd Impact had no Chun Li That’s like my fav character, how did gamers endured not having her back then?? Like that is not right at all. I’m glad she’s back in SF3:3rd Strike.

That's one of the reasons why Street Fighter III wasn't exactly a big commercial hit. Lack of popular characters. It was basically Ryu, Ken and then Chun-Li in the final version.

3rd Strike introduced some good characters to the series, though. Yun, Dudley, Ibuki and Yang are all good characters. I also have a soft spot for Necro and last time I was playing 3S competitively I was trying to learn him.

3rd Strike is by far the best version of SF3 and a favourite by many SF players due to parring. Chun-Li is arguably the best fighter in the game for competitive play. As a big Chun-Li game I love it that there's a gem where she is the best fighter overall. She was pretty good in Super Turbo 2 as well.

Overall I like 3rd Strike. It's a very good game and very smooth, but I'm more of a Super Turbo and Ultra SF4 guy myself. Ultra in particular has a killer roster.
