@Acura_Max: You know, I think that's the first Magikarp card I've seen in the online game. Hurrah! I wonder what the Gyarados card is like...

I can confirm that Legendary Treasures packs have 10 cards! I managed to get enough tokens and bought a pack, and got an EX right off the bat! I think I'm going to like this set.

I was lucky enough to get a Legendary Treasures Pack as my booster pack of the week today.

Awesome, I thought Legendary Treasures might be omitted from the daily bonus since it's kind of a super-booster pack, good to know that's not the case!

I'm not given much incentive to buy the other packs since Legendary Treasures gives you a better chance of EX cards since has more ex cards for about 5 more tokens (2 Regular packs = 190, 1 Legendary Treasure Pack = 195).

Yeah, I'm with you on that, at least for the time being. Unless I'm going after specific cards from other sets I think I'll be saving my tokens for Legendary Treasures boosters for the foreseeable future.

If all my assumptions are true, maybe the pokemon company is trying hand out more EX cards balance things out with more experienced players (?). Either that or somebody made a mistake. In that case, we better get as many EX cards as we can.

It's definitely not a mistake, these things are carefully thought out. This expansion is bringing a bunch of old (out of rotation) cards back and it's the last expansion in the Black & White run, that's why it's got so many cool cards in it. The hardcore players and collectors will no doubt already have multiple copies of the cards that are being reprinted in this set, so it probably has a lot less to offer them. It might work out harder to get the new EX cards from this expansion because of the reprints. You have to consider all the angles :)

The Serperior that I got has a pokemon ability where if it has a grass energy, it will have no retreat cost.

Nice, that sort of thing is always handy.

@Acura_Max: Wow, they really went all out on that one. That would be a really cool card to own in real life.

@Acura_Max: Dude have you played online after applying the new update? Now that Catcher's been nerfed the whole game feels different and, frankly, fresh. Players are more willing to build up Pokémon on their bench (I'm predicting Mewtwo EX might make a big comeback) and take more risks. This might be the biggest change since EX cards were introduced. Everyone's tweaking their strategies.

I need to figure out what I should change in my deck. I might end up removing all four of my Catchers! Not long ago that would have sounded nuts!

@takashichea: @bigz007: Right, I've changed "Ongoing Anime" to "Ongoing & Returning Anime" and I've combined the regular fall season anime with the shorts. Crisis averted!

@takashichea said:

Magi - the Labyrinth of Magic, Hunter x Hunter, Beelzebub

These three in particular sound like good ideas. Hunter x Hunter is still an ongoing manga? Does that mean the 2011 anime series has hundreds and hundreds of chapters to get through? That would be pretty cool, no filler for years!

@bigz007 said:

we don't have One Piece or Naruto Shippuden as ongoing.

That's only because we don't have discussion threads for them. If you'd like to start threads for them, follow the same format as the others (here's a good example) and call them:

  • Naruto Discussion (Anime)
  • One Piece Discussion (Anime)

It's important to keep the anime and manga discussions separate to avoid spoilers. And before you ask, yes I left "Shippuden" out on purpose. I leave the subtitles out so the discussion still makes sense, even if a sequel season/series begins with a new subtitle.

If you don't want to, me or Taka will make them. Been meaning to for a while.

@xlab3000: People would probably call it a Yu-Gi-Oh! rip-off. Interesting idea though, I'd never though of that before.

@takashichea: I organised it to match Anichart. Maybe 5 minutes is too long to be considered a short? Regardless, I'd rather keep it the same, it makes it so much easier to organise.

We should probably have more manga discussions. I wonder if people would use Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach threads or if the weekly posts on the front page are enough...

@Acura_Max: Huh, interesting. I wasn't expecting packs of Legendary Treasures to be more than other packs, but I suppose it makes sense. The emphasis is on EX cards so there are more in this expansion than most. Maybe my EX draught will be over soon! I'll just have to save up twice as many tokens... I guess that's one way to make me play more. Usually I just play one or two online matches a day.

Ah so they finally applied the Catcher nerf to the game, looks like they changed the starting rules too. You now flip the coin before drawing any cards and I think the first person can't attack. All this stuff combined should change how people play quite a bit, should be interesting.

@AnimeDefender: It made you cry? Are you sure you aren't talking about the scene where he sacrifices himself? Wait, damn it! That's another one! Now it's even harder to choose!

It depends on the anime, but for DBZ I think English clips would be better, yeah.

I'm building a list of legendary anime quotes, anyone want to help out? If you can provide a clip for each quote, even better!

I'm trying to decide which quote to go with for Vegeta. Vegeta's Pride? (his speech to Goku before they fight during the Buu arc?) Vegeta's Respect? (when he admits Goku's better than him near the end of DBZ) or maybe something else?

Off-Topic » What ever happened to covering User Reviews?

@Dream said:

I'm aware the Videos section is a lost cause since Vice doesn't have full-time staff to post anything for it.

But the reviews section should at least be salvageable. I'll try seeing if I can chip in reviews for any titles I'm able to complete if they have a wiki entry here on the site so there is at least some activity brewing in it.

As for this issue, yes the video section has been dead for some time, but Tom posts video content on the front page and trailers are shared on the forums, so we haven't lost the actual content.

@Dream: @takashichea: @Destinyheroknight: I think the most logical thing to do is feature user reviews in the weekly community spotlight. Honestly I'm surprised they aren't already.
