I find Life is Strange enjoyable overall, but I'll be damned if the characters aren't flatly written by corporate executives that asked tumblr what's "hip" these days. Mega pretentious too, and our protagonist constantly manages to find the worst ways to use her powers.
Reaching for that jar of milk on top of the refrigerator? Oh no, you dropped it! Well, if you rewind time, you can make sure to remember that and grab it differently, and/or catch it. ... Or you could just drop it again, adding an unnecessary puzzle of finding that box to stand on. Sigh.
Visuals are pretty and conversations feel realistic though (not withstanding texting).

That shit is coming out? Damn thank you man I really didnt know it. I loved the fucking game and got all over Witcher 3, so that I wouldn't have gotten this.
Honest thank you man.
I would suck your dick for this, but I have the habit of biting, sooo if you are up to this.....
#58 - thescyle (05/19/2015) [-]
well... no, I dont play them. Tbh I know most of the games and their release dates, if I am interested in them, thats why it surprised me so much that I forgot about Life is Strange.
But you get a glory buttfuck if you can tell me when the next Episode of TFS DBZA or YGATAS comes out!

There's local mayors, at least, like Drayden in Black and White; he's a gym leader so maybe we can assume that the pokemon world is a meritocracy, with the pokemon league being the test? The Champion and the Elite Four are the regional leaders, having shown the best tactics and leadership, the gym leaders are local leaders, appointed or approved by the Champion, local law enforcement is provided by a clone army of Jennys, healthcare by Joys at the Pokemon centers. The gym leaders don't lose their positions when beaten so that there's some government stability.
However! And this is my headcanon:
If you don't look at any official maps, the games appear to take place on a bunch of disconnected islands and small continents that could easily be larger islands. The primary modes of travel between regions are by ship. There's crazy monsters in the water, some of which can be tamed. Nobody ever shows up that doesn't know what pokemon are, but they've been to a pretty small portion of the world considering how advanced the transport is.
Pokemon takes place on an isolated series of islands in the Grand Line of One Piece. And Devil Fruits are intended to give people the powers of pokemon; they learn to use attack moves, but none of them ever learn Surf so they can't swim. There's no way to navigate into the Pokemon zone with a Log Pose and there's no way to navigate out to the greater Line with a compass or Nosepass. There's pokemon themed pirates in the pokemon world.
And the power the World Nobles used to subdue the rest of the world into one government during the void century was an army of Pokemon. The only people ever to find out this secret were Gol D. Roger and his crew; he became the first and only Pirate Champion.

well hang on; that could be an interesting plot for a game. I always wanted a pokemon game that took place before red and blue. Back when Oak was a young man and we could find out a bunch of stuff, like what war Lt. Surge was in. What if in the beginning there was a government but it disbanded letting the people run themselves. which is what sparked criminals like team rocket to start

I'd even just compare ourselves to other animals. There are infinitely many other animals that are superior to us in strength, speed, agility, general killing power, and it seems absurd to say that we're exceptional in all of these ways, and must be exceptional when compared to alien species, when we're not even particularly exceptional on our own planet. Yes we're smart, yes we use tools, but that's not what people freak out about, they freak out about us having two sets of teeth.
#177 - questionableferret (04/05/2015) [-]
Ah, but here's the thing that point of view you have is ignoring. The sheer anomalous nature of humanity even on this planet. In several hundred million years of life only one species has fulfilled the hyper-specific dietary and lifestyle requirements to create a truly intelligent being. The only reason we are here is because firstly, life needed to happen, then it needed to get so large that smaller creatures were forced to be intelligent to survive, then those larger creatures needed to disappear so the more intelligent ones could start to take over, then a small number of those smaller ones needed to begin living in an environment that demanded physical dexterity to allow for effective tool-manipulation (primates, octopuses, etc), but THEN after all of that the species needed to be living in an environment that demanded of them to be intelligent in order to survive.
That last part is the kicker and the reason Humans are what we are today. All of the other animals in history that lived in a situation that was unfavourable to them either evolved to suit the environment or went extinct, but not humans. We needed to be smart when we hunted, we needed to communicate complex ideas with one-another, we needed to plan ahead and use tools, and then agriculture happened and everything from there is just an ever-increasing density of complexity in our lifestyles made possible by our thoroughly unique evolutionary background.
All those animals you mention that are stronger or faster than us are hyper-specialised to their environments and thus aren't required to cognitively or physically evolve. What is truly exceptional about humans is our brains.
We are thoroughly exceptional, capable of doing things that no other creature on the planet can even come close to doing. So what if Gorillas are strong, so are Rhynos, and yet we are still better than them because of how smart and versatile we are.
Now, if there was an alien race out there that took a different path to intelligence than we as humans did they would likely not be able to benefit from all of those wonderful little niggles that we picked up along the way. Things like hyper-reactive scar-tissue, something most other species on earth don't have. Things like strong bones that regenerate over the course of months and not years, like is the case with most other animals on the planet. We can safely consume a wider variety of things, food or otherwise, than most other animals, even the simpler ones.
Point being, we look simple, but that is our biggest advantage, because we are just so versatile and we keep going longer and harder than most other specialised animals. Human + Tools = most dangerous animal alive. Human - tools = the most versatile animal alive.
And then there's something else to consider. Earth, and it's absurd gravity. Earth's gravity is about three times stronger than a planet it's size should reasonably have. This means our bones are denser. Our muscles are stronger. Our teeth are tougher.
Everything that led to humans existing has made us very strong on top of being very smart. Unless something similar to the incredibly rare series of events that had us evolve to the point we're at occurs again on an entirely different planet any intelligent life we walk into out amongst the stars is very likely to not be anywhere near as strong or as versatile as we are, just like all other life on Earth.
We're not mind-blowingly awesome, but we are three times stronger and tougher than we've any right to be on top of our versatility. We rule, bro.

To be fair animals being stronger and/or more agile than humans isn't exactly surprising. For animals it can be divided like this: If you're the hunted you need to be near the top or you get eaten. If you're the hunter you need to be near the top or you starve. In short typically the better genes survive. In humans being stronger or smarter doesn't mean you are more likely to survive, especially in first world countries. So the gene pool in general mellows out.
