I wish I took more screenshots because the chat was probably the best part of my experience playing this but I was so overwhelmed by everything it threw at me at the start.

I feel like the DP remakes made sense for 2 reasons:
1. It's kinda tricky to transfer pokemon from Gen 4 to 8 given that you need 2 DSes (iirc)
2. Making a "Virtual Console" release would have been awkward because of the DS's dual screen gimmick.

I'm hoping that after this they just re-release the games on an emulator with HOME support like the VC releases of the Gameboy games on the 3DS instead of making remakes.

Honestly I'm kinda of excited the DP remakes are being outsourced. I'm really curious to see what ILCA does with Pokemon but I'm worried it's just going to be a 1:1 remake with no new content added. Worst case scenario it probably means more GF devs are working on Legends Arceus and hopefully any future Pokemon games.

I'm hoping they start outsourcing all of the remakes from now on even if they suck because of it as the remakes are starting to get more and more redundant and will be kinda pointless once every region gets HOME support. I would prefer it if they would just stopped making them but I have a feeling they won't so this might be a nice compromise.

Neon White looks hella sick but I'm probably going to get it on steam instead.

I really want to be hyped for Sploon 3 but the gameplay they showed in the trailer doesn't look all that different from 2.

I remember there being a lot of RPG maker 2000(3) games that I really liked though. Yume Nikki and it's many fan games seem like they would be pretty comfy on the Switch if they work.

It's a shame that EasyRPG doesn't work with RPG Maker XP games playing Pokemon Essentials games on the Switch would have been super cool.

I think this is the first Valentine's day where I didn't feel super cynical about it and I was actually into it. Unfortunately the guy I like lives in another country and didn't have the day off so there's wasn't much I could do but at least I got to spend a bit of time with him.

@kivihminen There seems to be a fair amount of score-writing programs for Linux but I wouldn't know if they're on par with the ones on Windows/Mac. Worst case scenario, you can use WINE to run Windows programs but I would only use that as a last resort.

@kivihminen It depends on what you're using your computer for.

I feel like most Ubuntu based distros have gui tools that are good enough for the "average user" to get by without opening the terminal or editing huge config files but certain things can be really rough around the edges on Linux or might not have user-friendly enough alternatives.

If all you do on your PC is use a web browser and consume media you'll probably be fine but I still think you should try it out in a VM or try a live USB before installing it.

I feel like I should probably get into controller modding since I have a bunch of 360 and GameCube controllers laying around that nobody uses anymore.
