And apparently Yellow technically won out, though Infinite Warfare seems to be in second place. Right then. Here we go.

-Yellow

    Yellow is considered one of the best Pokémon games ever made, and that's not just because it's a 1st Gen game. At the time, the Pokémon anime was considered to be the shit, rather than being shit, and everyone wanted to be just like Ash (It was the 90's, so don't be too harsh). Nintendo, sensing a massive cash cow opportunity, decided to make an improve Red/Blue version, edit it a tad bit to make it more like the anime, and replace the classic starter decision with just handing you a Pikachu.

    It was a smash hit, and I bought it for the virtual console because I thought it was great, plus it was a Kanto game. I literally have at least one of every region under my belt (excluding Orre and whatever Pokémon Snap is set in), or at least with the games.

    Thing is, I'm also a Nuzlocker who didn't publish anything. So...here's the rules:

1. First encounter is only available catch (starts once balls are in play), unless the ball is next to their species name, in which case ignore until you find one that isn't with that condition.
2. Nickname all caught Pokémon
3. Faint=Death


-Infinite Warfare

    Infinite Warfare is considered one of the most controversial Call of Duty games of ALL TIME. Why? Well after Ghosts (which can go suck a baguette of dicks), faith in the franchise plummeted. Advanced Warfare was okay (and Kevin Spacey is perhaps the best part), and BLOPSIII was...meta, to put it lightly.

    Thankfully, the campaign is actually pretty good, and there's a lot of detail put into it...unless you want a Grey vs Grey morality play, in which case, you're plain out of luck. But if you read the above post, you know that I'm a closeted masochist.

So I'm playing it on Specialist. Which removes the regenerating health, has Fallout esque injuries, and the helmets can be broken.

Yeah...

So we got attacked last night by Red Scorpion air fighters (which according to Red were entirely compromised of MIG 17's circa the Cold War), and most of the fighters are reported to have been either damaged, destroyed, or crashed. While I admit that Red's flying skills with what seems to be an F-22 fighter against Cold War era planes is indeed a spectacle to watch, we have more concerning issues.

But first, a timeline:

1745 hours: A sudden Red Alert is declared when unknown fighters don't respond to warnings from the New Eden aircraft control station.

1750 hours: Red gets on his F-22 Fighter.

1801 hours: I, along with essential support personnel, and a 12 year old girl named Yuri, head into the panic room to wait out the coming air battle.

1802 hours: Dogfight between the Red Scorpion Fighters and Red start.

1815 hours: The front gate personnel report a King James trying to enter the premises.

It was around this time that the...complications rose up.

1816 hours: Back Gate camera shows the gate appearing to have been destroyed, and the guard (Pvt. Joseph Allen) KIA.

1818 hours: 3 unknown individuals are detected in the rear of the complex, encountering 60 security personnel desperately trying to hold the line with 90's Kiryu-Kai gear. 12 eventually die in this conflict, while 47 end up wounded either due to enemy fire, the confusion regarding the events of 1825 hours, or the faulty weapons that the security personnel are using compared to the M4's the unknowns were using.

1825 hours: Alert report reaches command, who activates turrets. Unknowns KIA

1900 hours: Red reports victory.

I took an inventory of the Unknown's gear, and it seems that they don't have any personnel effects on them to identify their faction. Due to the increased training, plus their apparent discipline, we can gather one of three possibilities: either the Red Scorpions planned this so the Ariel Assault to distract us from the ground assault, these individuals knew ahead of time what was happening, but are not involved with Red Scorpion, or it was a fluke.

None of these possibilities are in any way calming.

On a final note, from what I gathered in the local culture, most Ariel military uses Cold War era jets, as they are easier to either trade or manufacture than modern day military equipment. The F-22, while a nice advantage, is going to draw a lot of attention to us, so we might have to lie low for some time until we're ready to extract Prince Caspian (It's strange how no one acted...maybe they're too afraid of Royal Bodyguards).

Sincerely, Logistics Chief Steven Long (FMR LCpl of the 1st Marine Recon force, FMR Security officer of the Kiryu-Kai)

Hello, Zeus here. So...I recently got a Job interview done! ^^

But that's not the announcement. This is.

I've noticed that I've had less times to focus on personal projects, and there have been multiple off the top of my head that I've been itching to do for some time. Thankfully, I've managed to reduce them to both Primary and Secondary projects.

Primary-These are focused on systems that I have that are currently using only one game for various reasons.

Fire Emblem Heroes: Yes, I downloaded it, and personally, I'm only waiting until Sigurd returns from the dead just to cap off every other hero into the dust. But until then, I'm content with just doing a narrative LP in which a former SI back when the Awakening SI deconstruction fics were reaching their peak get summoned into the casual world that is...FEH. From there, I will delve into Fire Emblem Awakening and the entire Fates Chronology, and depending on my computer skills, maybe an emulated game or two (no Tellus though).

Republic Commando: A Diamond in the rough for the Prequel Trilogy of Star Wars, it focuses on an elite squad of clone commandos known as Delta Squad as they fight through the Clone Wars. It's going to be something from the perspective of an outsider to the game, and once this is done, I'll go through the more tactical games in my collection.

Yellow: One of the original Pokémon games, we know it as the one where Pikachu is a starter. It will be the start of A Nuzlocke series, as well as side stories focused on the Rangers, Mystery Dungeon, and that one game involving Obo Nobunaga.

Secondary-These are focused on somewhat unique games on a system.

Enemy Within: One of the XCOM Remakes, it focuses on the battles of a covert organization against an unrelenting alien invasion whilst also battling against the human quislings known as EXALT. It focuses on turn based strategy battles and resource management.

Infinite Warfare: One of the more...controversial CoD games in recent years, it has a solid campaign (multiplayer, what's that?), and is going to be a timeline focused thing. Other Cod games will follow this.

I want to hear what you guys have to say about this.

People I expect an answer from: :iconskygal333: , :iconpazlin: , :icondillydraws: , :iconyoshiofredemption:


You are some of the best people I've known here for a long time, and I trust your decision. Voting will end on February 27th.

ChromeNeko ship fanart
For :iconskygal333: 's SORA nuzlocke.

I should explain: I'm a fan of...unusual pairings. Most of the time, this means that my OTP is not the inevitable everyone else has in mind, and this is no exception. Shiny is a shiny Metang (at time of writing) who is akin to a robot, while Neko is a mischievous Skitty (a the time of writing) who occasionally spurts Japanese while acting as the mischivious one (while making humans nosebleed with her cute charm ability).

And I thought that they would make a great couple, probably more so than Brendan Andy Sora (at least until thier UST is resolved by whatever means nessecary), so I made fanart of them doing a selfie.

Steven Long Referance
Name: Steven Long (Retiree LCpl)

Callsign: Meat Toboggan (unofficial), Kai

Role: Logistics (Making sure that the new troopers are combat ready, assigning intelligence to high command, being a drill Sgt., etc.)

Background: A former member of the Kiryu-Kai security bracket, his unit suffered 95% casualties during operation Ashes and Temples. Steven's one of the lucky ones, as he's still able to function without the need of either assistive devices or a service dog. Having earned an honorable discharge for his efforts, he still finds that he wants to make sure that the next generation of warriors isn't caught unprepared.

Other notes: It isn't know exactly why Meat Toboggan was chosen as an unofficial designation, but most point to the expression "new meat" as the source of it. Others point to SAO Abridged episodes 5-6, and say that it's a really sick reference to a dark joke. Whatever the reason is, don't call him that to his face.

For the Fire Emblem Club. It took a while, a lot of delays, and a cold, but I finally finished it.

I just hope it's adequate enough.

Ok, just joined.

Is it okay if I draw the character I'm going to be RP'ing as, along with whatever classes you want to bring to the table? And do you know if anyone else wants to join here?
