But if it's good... I lose my life. Because this is going to be great.

/2 If it has npc trainer battle, wild pokemon battles, capture, player vs player battles, it should be good. Basically, you need to be able to do everything you can do in the games, except that the overworld is the real world.

If it's bad, I lose nothing, just sad they missed it. But...

Pokemon Go! is made by Niantic, and the technology has been refined through Ingress. On that end, I'm not too afraid. Pokemon Developers are working closely with them apparently.

I have gotten WiiU mainly for Tropical Freeze and Bayonetta 2. I have no complaints even if it is just those 2 games since speed running Tropical Freeze will take me probably a hundred hours. The Mario games and other stuff are mainly bonus.

On a side note, TempoStorm puts Patron back in #1.

This really seems to be the endless cycle. I don't like netdecking because, one, I don't have quite all the cards for them, and two (and more importantly!), you can't make any headway with innovation if you *refuse* to even TRY.

I remember when Sonic was an exclusive character to the Sega Saturn. Now look at him (and that franchise). Maybe Nintendo will realize that they can make more money by being into software instead of hardware (and leave the console wars to Microsoft and Sony).

The extra joke is that patron's a pretty cheap deck to make, just 2 adventures and a few rares and you're done. Those monks are just taking extra $$$ while the decks are too busy getting turned inside out to notice. :p

Ugh, every one of those quotes from Frankendeck put a chill down my spine and a twitch of anger in my eye...

- Nintendo has made it painfully clear time and time again that they will never make games for other consoles. If you want to play their games, get their systems.
- Just buy a Wii U already... It's been pretty clear how much you want one.

(1/2) A few things to note:
- The Pokemon Company tends to do their own things outside of Nintendo, and this is no exception.
- Pokemon Go isn't the first Pokemon game on a non-Nintendo system
- Nintendo said long ago they plan to release a small handful of games exclusively for smart devices.

I love how a lot of people say about how it´s a Pay-to-win game (including some friends).Yes,yes i know you are better if you have money,but I made cool decks that I used both in Ranked and Normal that went pretty well,but as a Pay-to-win some games were InstaLoss,but I´m bored of this game. :,(

I can't see Nintendo going the way of SEGA, Jo. I can however see them just 100% shut down out of spite if they go out of the console business. Say what you will about the Wii U, but everyone would miss the 3DS.

I honestly don't understand why patron warrior gets so much flak in this comic. I mean it's funny nonetheless, but I always felt the mindless facehunter decks were much worse. Warrior at least takes enough skill to maintain control of the board until you can setup the combo.

Am I the only one who has never really had an issue against Patron?

Poke'Go is being made by the Ingress. I've said elsewhere that I want to see the Training and Battle mechanics. Without those it'll just be a reskinned Ingress riddled with microtransactions. Expect to pay real money for virtual Poke'balls.

Well, then again, you can't exactly buy a Wii U because they abandoned Brazilian operations...

Somehow I comment among the first! Also, try playing pokemon colosseum or gale of darkness on gamecube. They're pretty good.

While Pokemon is considered part of Nintendo, it really isn't. It's owned by three companies but mostly Gamefreak. Gamefreak are a second-party to Nintendo.

Anyway, that's sadly how Hearthstone's ranked play can bee seen.

Wait... shouldn't he have played the Berserker before triggering the Patron?

Someone has been living under a rock... Nintendo is making spinoffs for mobile now. Nothing major or mainline. They're not going 3rd party, just trying to 1up the competition on mobile.

A Pokemon game on a console that's NOT a Nintendo console? Is the hell actually freezing over?

This isn't really a step towards Nintendo games on non-Nintendo platforms. This is the Pokemon Company/Game Freak doing this, not Nintendo itself. Also, they've released official Pokedex apps for smartphones before IIRC.

Only Thrall and his mighty army of totems can free us from this cycle!

Not sure if I buy a mobile Pokemon game as evidence or even a hint of Nintendo producing for other platforms. Microsoft has released Halo games for mobile devices, but they don't look any closer to PC ports for upcoming or previous games. I wouldn't mind being proven wrong regarding either company.

Haha, that Pokemon Go trailer. Very well made, but surely THAT far apart from the actual game that a lot of expectations will be shattered ;-)

Well, actually, this isn't a first by a long shot when it comes to Pokemon being in a non-Nintendo platform, they already had a few Pokemon app, like the ultra-expensive Pokedex, and they were even Pokemon games on an old Sega console called the SEGA Pico.

@nerfnow Nintendo actually announced a while back that they were planning on getting into the mobile gaming market and that they were going to develop some titles for phones and tablets and stuff.
