Aegislash is an absolutely outstanding Pokemon.
You tell me! Slow as heck but that enables it to resist a lot of damage before it changes to its offensive move and delivers some nasty damage, then you use its powered up Protect (King's Shield) to change back to Defense, negate all damage, and even then reduce the opponent's Attack harshly if it's a contact move.

I think I'm seeing a banned Pokémon in it.

To this day, I wonder why Deposit & Withdraw even exist next to the superior Move/Organize Box option.

DLC Schedule for North America.

The first were release in October 1st: Fuka & Desco are paid DLC. Legacy Costume Pack (the main trio's Disgaea 4 looks) is free.

The next ones, released on November 5th, are Adell, Rozalin, and Liliel (from Guided Fate Paradox).

The big reveal about Team Plasma was pretty dark, but it also felt pretty rushed because this technically is brought up to you out of the blue, just as the abnormally tall human walking around the region.

I think Mawile needed the boost.
Of course it needed it, but not nearly the rest of the Pokémon chosen for it.

I'll miss traditional evolutions if they got rid of them as long as your name isn't Eevee.

Eh, while I like the game, I'd say after how much effort B/W/B2/W2 put into the story, a lot of this game seems very weak in that regard. The rivals are all annoying (stop interrupting my adventure to drag me to some extra thing or give me some speech on friendship or dancing). Team Flare is kind of all over the place in their motives, and they're really just kind of... stupid, overall. There really didn't feel like there was enough of a build-up to the final confrontation with them, AZ and the Pokemon on the cover seem shoehorned in. I know there's foreshadowing to AZ, but his story didn't really make me feel anything. And the gym leaders. Besides Korrina, and a pre-gym scene with electric kid and Wulfric each, they seem to just be there for five minutes before you trounce them. They're so unmemorable that I keep mixing up the fairy and psychic leaders in my head. Gyms themselves were cool though.

I was also a bit "wait, who?" on the champion in this game, but X/Y has one of my favorite Elite 4s in all the games.

I still really like the game, but after the last few installments this one just feels like the main selling point was graphics and everything else took a hit for it.
Well, let me summarize a few points:

Story: Is either the same or below average than the Kanto era, which is probably the worst compared to all games. The only character development you'll ever get is the fun sidequest in the Post-Game.

Characters: are pretty forgettable and never make you like them too much. Case in point, you'll never fight Fatty, Four Eyes, and Tanned Bianca beyond two times. If you took away Korrina's role as a Successor, she'd definitely fall flat in character development to the likes of One Liner Olympia... Actually, Korrina only lives for Mega Evolution yet she knows nearly nothing about what the hell happened to those mutated stones. Some successor you are, roller skater girl!

Villain Team: pretty much is like Team Rocket, but at least their boss showed a lot of hope.

Gameplay: is probably the only thing you'll need to focus on this game and forget the rest that feels like a bonus... But the Mega Evolution mechanic may as well stop rearing its head in future games because nearly all Pokémon who got this DIDN'T really need a boost. In fact, they get weaker because other Held Items are much more important. It's way more confusing how the region-exclusive Pokémon didn't get a single Mega. Oh, and Mega Charizard X? It'll still die quickly because Stealth Rock will nearly cream it before it Digivolves.

Post-Game content: ...what post-game content? Catch three Legendaries, defeat as many rich snobs in the Battle Chateau as you can, fight in restaurants, buy every single piece of clothing for you, participate in the Battle Maison, fill out that dex, and that's it...

Graphics: are very pretty and the fifth Gen can finally touch that ground in battles (not the Pokedex 3D Pro. By the way, will we ever get an update for that?)

Yeah, I feel like the game is better suited to super competitive people. I'm just only filling my dex so nothing interrupts me for PW: Dual Destinies in two days.

In terms of characterization, this game fails at it unlike how wonderful BW was in story terms.

Also, Challenge Mode & Easy Mode are in this game, except they're disguised as "Off" and "On" in the Exp. Share.

Geez, I avoid this board like the plague after I beat the game, and when I come back I see people mostly talking about fedoras and trench coats.

We're possibly the only two people keeping this game alive in this forum.

Video game caring potential, people.

I checked and it's not her birthday yet. You're possibly using New York Time Zone which means, for me, tomorrow is her birthday.

OMG I need this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Uh... You need Aonuma himself?
207  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix announced on: October 14, 2013, 12:13:20 PM
I'm surprised the 3DS cutscenes didn't make it (did that much story happen in Re:Coded?????), but the game is only a year old, I'm guessing they're trying to get people playing that instead or something. 

Most likely, just like 358/2 Days, they would have to recreate the entire game from the ground-up and that would take a whole lot more time than just simply giving an HD coat to pre-existing 3D models for consoles. They could import the stages from their other games and paste them on the DS games, though, except Re:Coded is really isn't that important to play because its entire reason to even exist is to make Mickey remember "those three dudes he hung around with" in BBS.

Also, Danger Bugs.
208  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So does anyone think the Vita will get better? on: October 13, 2013, 10:51:24 AM
Uh, the Vita is already getting better.  Did you miss the about...10 RPGs and VNs that are getting released in the west within the next 6 months?
Good for the Vita to become the second RPG Heaven after the 3DS, but...just RPGs?
209  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y on: October 12, 2013, 12:15:52 AM
And thus the games are now available on the eShop. Midnight release my butt! New York Time is the official time, but I live in the west, thus I'm getting the game three hours earlier.

Downloading X now!

Lorule? Hyrule?

...Low-rule? High-rule?

Odd. I never would've thought about doing that sort of pun.
