@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

As a 90's kid, I totally laughed at this reference. Was not expecting it, even with the entire gym being full of it.

We're actually in an Evangelion universe and that's LCL?

 

...Actually, let's not think about that crossover.  It would be horrifying.

I could get behind Pokémon Evangelion version, but only if they brought along the darker themes. Pokémon is too light hearted for that crossover

Orange soda is cool but I don't love it

 

I also don't get the reference

 

but this hack seems ok, it has a little of my interest but if it's mostly the same then it doesn't have that much of my interest XP

 

also Evangelion is dark? guess I need to watch more than episode 2 lol

Either you're not old enough or you didn't watch live action shows as a kid.

 

 

@ the hack: The overworld is kind of the same but with some major differences, and while the NPCs are usually in the same places, they often either have completely new text or completely mock up the original. The biggest sin I see with it is that--and maybe this is just a patching problem? I don't know--while the game's graphics, types and music are altered, the Pokemon's movesets are NOT. So they changed Machop/Machoke to Applin/Applot but didn't change their movesets so now they're spamming fighting moves (...or...whatever type those moves were changed into...) like mad. I actually ragequit a battle for that reason. (Plus, said Applot was like, level 45...)

 

The various references to random things are golden though. There's a "I Wanna Be The Guy" reference and a Zelda CDI reference in there. Also, there was a Pirate named Dart

Evangelion, while not absolutely the bleakest series in existence, is one of the most famous for looking critically at Super Robot ideas (taking pilots and throwing them into world saving situations).  It doesn't guide itself down the same path of inevitable darkness like some COUGHtexhnolyzeCOUGH but does get to some pretty depressing topics eventually.  I mean, the the "desired" ending of the series (before the company basically lost all funding for its last 2 episodes) was everybody turning into the aforementioned LCL/Tang.  Basically, humanity dies.  End of story.  The series, due to the aforementioned lack of funding, just decided to explore its character's mental issues further for the last two episodes and we actually don't see it happen.

 

This idea got recycled for End of Evangelion when they decided to actually create the ending "right".  It's just as depressing and creepy when played on screen.

...that's a very compelling argument, I think my brain farted on that post. Now, Pokémon Sweets, that's a funny name, does it have a parallel version named Pokémon Snacks?

@kirant I didn't understand the Evangelion talk. this seems like a situation where I should proooobably watch the rest of the show so I have a better idea of what you're talking about (or at least am ready enough to read up online/fill myself in, lol)

Long story short:

 - Emotionally broken teenagers must save world.

 - World saving is actually impossible.

 - Reality ensues and stuff happens.

 - Everybody gets hugged and turned into tang (actually the fan meme for the series' ending.  The better description is "everybody dies")

 

Edit - Here's the version, as told by the VA of the protagonist (starts at 1:50):

That sounds incredibly depressing. Remind me to avoid it...

yeah that does sound depressing

 

again, I'll get back to you whenever I get to actually watch this series

 

(aside from being busy, I tend to... not really have much of an appreciation for old anime, so >_>')
