New Pokemon X/Y info.

The first details of CoroCoro appears to have come out. With special thanks to my friend Gin for translation. First, the Pokémon on the far right is called Gogoat (ゴーゴート literally Gohgohto) and is the Riding Pokémon. It's Grass-type, 1.7m and 91.0kg. You can actually ride this Pokémon in the field. It can learn Horn Leech
The lizard is called Elikiteru (エリキテル) and is a Electric/Normal-type. It is the Generation Pokémon and is 0.5m and 6.0kg. It has a new move called Parabola Charge which heals the user while damaging opponents. It uses solar rays to generate electricity
The bird is called Yayakoma (ヤヤコマ) and is the Japanese Robin Pokémon. It is Normal/Flying, 0.3m and 1.7kg. It announces itself with a beautiful voice. It can use the move Flame Charge
The panda is called Yancham ( ヤンチャム) and is the Naughty Pokémon. It is Fighting-type, 0.6m and 8.0kg. It has a new move called Parting Remark which lowers the opponents stats and causes the user to switch out
There appears to be more including the game's boxarts, and the Pokédex, as well as the region map but it's not completely visible. We'll bring more as it comes so be sure to keep checking. It also promises more information on Gogoat on a later page.
Edit: The game is set in the Karos Region which appears to be based on France. You can customise your trainer slightly with hair colour and skin shade. Main city is Miare City which is where it is seen to ride Gogoat
Edit @ 15:22: We have the cover and it shows that these four Pokémon may be the only new ones in it. It also shows the boxart
Edit @ 15:48: Closeup image of the customisation

And if this fall-out means no Origin on Wii U, all the better.

If anything, I'm all for them giving EA the finger if it means they didn't get Origin on the console.

What's with the hate on Origin, anyway? I haven't personally used it, but from what I've heard, it really isn't as bad as the haters make it out to be. I mean, it's not Steam, but Steam has been around for nearly ten years now, so it's hardly fair to make that comparison. It just seems like sometimes, it's just so "cool" to hate on anything related to EA that I think it gets blown out of proportion. Isn't the OPTION of playing Origin games on your WiiU better than NOT having the option? Or am I missing something here, where people like making fewer decisions about the games they want to play?

-collecting information from users' computers
-frivolous bans that lock users out of every game they've paid for
-piss-poor customer service
-deleting games you own if the service hasn't been accessed in two years

I don't have much of an issue with Origin on my PC, but I hardly ever have it open anyways. What I am happy about is that the whole Nintendo network is not Origin based, which supposedly is what EA wanted.

But quite honestly, I don't like EA either.
Besides all the other stupid stuff they've been pulling lately (see Gasmask lists among a lot of other things), while it is not out yet, another perfect example for what happens if you publish under EA is Fuse (new Insomniac game). The original trailer, back when the game was called overstrike, was classic Insomniac, it was cartoon-ish and humorous. Everything we've seen so far since it was renamed to Fuse was just... well, bland; the same serious, dark, gritty stuff like everything else that is coming out today.
Which really sucks, because Ratchet and Clank is my favourite game series; Overstrike looked like it would've been kinda similar humor-wise.

While I agree that all the things Gas posted are shitty, I'm not so sure this will actually hurt EA much of any way, since they are the ones pulling support from Nintendo, and not the other way around. If it was Nintendo telling EA to fuck off, then yeah I could see this being a positive thing since it would be Nintendo making a statement that they think EA's a piece of shit (a sentiment with which I wouldn't disagree). As it is now, it's just EA saying that the WiiU's hardware can't handle their games, which just seems to be straight-up a negative thing, since EA's going to keep selling games through Origin/PS4/Xbox720, where (I would assume) their core audience is anyway.

I didn't hear that EA wanted the WiiU's network to be based on Origin, though. If that's true, then I hope it doesn't happen, and it may indeed be a great thing that EA's games don't show up on the WiiU.

Like I said, something like this might hurt Nintendo, but I could care less if EA's going to throw a hissy fit because it didn't get its way and's trying to get back by not bringing their games to the Wii U.

Yes! I remember seeing the trailer for Overstrike at E3, and it was funny and memorable. I hadn't seen the trailer for Overstrike until after reading your post, but God does it look bland. Like a lame and boring cross between Battlefield and Mass Effect minus character interaction.

And aside from that, let's not forget stuff like the Sim City server fiasco, churning out a "CoD killer" every six months, and their tendency to throw the industry under the bus for the sake of marketing.

Did you hear the new Pokemon game has goat-riding and bench-sitting action?

Borderlands 2 is $15 this weekend on steam. Should I bite and see what all the hubba-bubbub is about?

I think it's a smart move. Sonic titles generally sell fairly well, don't they?
