Article The Most Incredible Fan Art from Twitch Plays Pokemon

By Chloe Cole / March 2, 2014

In the early hours of March 1st, 2014, Twitch Plays Pokemon came to an end. The thousands upon thousands of players had - over the course of nearly 400 hours - completed a single game of Pokemon. In the process, memes and religions and lore were birthed - and from that, fan art. So much fan art. So much incredible, brilliant fan art, all based around one of the weirdest and most compelling pieces of internet phenomena in recent memory (click here for a complete guide to the Generation 1 Twitch Plays Pokemon)

And we would like to remember the brilliant fan art created by sharing some of the best examples with you now. Enjoy!

  4. Bruce

    Yeah, ya like it?

  5. Alfred

    Uh. Well....it's definitely, uh, interesting.

Article The 10 Most Absurdly Powerful Pokemon In Existence

By Andrew Bridgman / September 25, 2013

  10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

The most incredible thing about Pokemon (beyond how many Pokemon articles the internet will tolerate) is that, somehow, humanity has enslaved them. These are super-powered animals that should have easily conquered this planet of puny homo sapiens long ago. Yet for whatever reason, they listen to our commands without question and battle each other for our own amusement. But a few of them have no excuse - they're described as so insanely powerful, it's incredible that they haven't risen up and smashed us into oblivion. These are the 10 Pokemon that are too ridiculously-strong for their (and our) own good.

 

10. Magcargo

10 of the Most Absurdly Powerful Creatures in the Pokemon World

Magcargo's body temperature is approximately 18,000 degrees F. Water is vaporized on contact. If this Pokémon is caught in the rain, the raindrops instantly turn into steam, cloaking the area in a thick fog. (Sapphire)


Okay - the surface of the sun is approximately 10,000 degrees F. Which means (*adjusts tie*) MAGCARGO IS NEARLY TWICE AS HOT AS THE SUN. You know that Smashmouth song, "Might As Well Be Walkin' On The Sun?" That's more realistic than being anywhere near Magcargo, since this lava slug thing is literally ALMOST TWICE AS HOT AS THE FREAKIN SUN. SOL, THE CENTER OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM, IS PRETTY DAMN CHILLY COMPARED TO THIS SINGLE INDIVIDUAL POKEMON.

Although, just to test it out, we should probably send the members of Smashmouth to confirm.

Article 5 Mistakes Every Videogame With A Morality System Makes

5 Mistakes Every Videogame With A Morality System Makes

The concept of moral choice systems in video games sounds really good on paper. Instead of doing whatever the narrative tells you to do, you can make your very own decisions, allowing you to have an impact on the world, and to see the consequences of your actions. It's unfortunate that more often than not they are flawed, unfair, and brainmeltingly stupid.

Here's a list of common mistakes even the greatest games tend to make.

 

1. It's either Good or Evil, there's nothing else

Quick, think of a person you know. Now describe that person with only one word. What word did you use? Greedy, lazy, selfish, kind, friendly? Maybe one of those, maybe not. But I'm sure there are two words you didn't use. Good and Evil. People are not that simple, and for some reason developers fail to acknowledge that. They keep making these systems like every single person is either black or white, but next to all people are in the grey area. We all have positive and negative qualities. On good days we smile at the world. On bad days we tend to be shitheads. But this is not how things go in Videoland.
