    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

    Santa...in the alphabet the S is the 19th letter. And if you break down the word santa like that with the rest of the letter

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/11/18/pokemon-alpha-sapphire-and-omega-ruby-review

Now i'm saying you can't rate the game a 7.8, but Holy Crap was there a lot of mistakes in her review. She didn't even seem like she was griping the game that much and then boom, a 7.8. It felt like minor nitpicks on her part about the game, and she said the gameplay was good.

Now correct me if im wrong, nitpicks don't make a game a 7.8, major bugs/gameplay issues do.

Her first mistake was reviewing the game on her personal opinion and how special the game was to her and how much they f**ked it up for her

You can see it on her Twitter page if im not correct.

She based the review on her own personal opinion instead of seeing how the game actually was.

I quote:

"This review is just filled with personal emotions you've had while playing the game. Next time, try to be objective. Ask yourself some questions you would like to have answered, like "how does the game compare to previous entries" or "is it fun to play for anyone". A review should inform and give a perspective how the game is. Not your own, special opinion. If you're heavy on opinion and emotions, explain them in detail and mark them as that, YOUR opinion. Makes it easier to understand why you think about this the way you do." From a commenter.

I can see legit complaints about HM Crap because HMS, but after playing it for a while, it's an improvement over the orings.

Also TOO MUCH WATER?! Jesus Christ, it takes place on a ISLAND! No wonder IGN is ashamed of this reviewer.

So much for that meltdown on her twitter lol

This comment just made my morning.


"I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

I actually bet they got someone from Deviant-art.

Actually when I think about it... if she was from Deviant-art, that means she would be going to starbucks!

Never go to the Pokemon section..

I am really starting to think this reviewer is an aquaphobe. The signs are there.

Also, it would funny as s**t to see her play Wind Waker.

1.3/10 easy.

"It’s not a new complaint, but Hoenn is still imbalanced type-wise, heavily favoring water. It’s especially noticeable in Alpha Sapphire, in which Team Aqua (the villains of the piece) use a lot of water types. " How do you complain about TEAM AQUA, having water types? What am I saying, she makes a good point. Team Aqua means water, so i expect Team Water to use Fire Types right?
My brain cells went down from reading that review..

I am really starting to think this reviewer is an aquaphobe. The signs are there.

Just imagine an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge..

The original Red and Blue were a challenge? Since when?

I don't really care that much since I don't necessarily want a challenge out of this game. I'm using mediocre Pokemon that I'd never have a chance to use in competitive play and if I want a challenge, I'll get a challenge when I play online. It's kind of nice that I don't have to spend much time grinding thanks to Amie and the Experience Share, which always bores me. Again, I do enough of that post-game.

That said, one of the things I've wanted in Pokemon for a while is the ability to adjust difficulty settings. They kind of had this in Gen V with an item that made the AI smarter and increased the levels of their Pokemon. The problem with the way it was implemented there was that it only available post-game and increasing all trainers' levels by 5 would have been harsh at the beginning of the game to begin with. I'd just like to have an AI system comparable the one in places like the Battle Frontier and Battle Subway.

If that review did anything, it made for some very, very funny memes!

Plus, a proper review should look at the entire game, not just target components that the person didn't/did like (as per first post).

Lol but seriously, they took out the Casino, wtf?



They also took out character customization, but I don't care too much. I'm picking up both games in an hour, I highly doubt they're a 7.8. That's most likely IGNorant.

I feel like to make the game harder, I would do nuzlocke or Rocketlocke.

After you beat the game, it gives a whole new level of challenge, but you are right.

I would put it on hard everytime.

I can only think of two times I got rekt by gym leaders in pokemon games. That electric gym in White, and Giovanni in Gen 1 (But I was young)
