  1. This was exceptionally hard. Finally got the custom sprite Gardevoir to animate and I got to tell you... this was truly a challenge.

     

    Well...here she is.

    It came out great if I do say so myself. ^^ What do you think?

    blink.gif ... That... is... awesome!!!! xd.png

    Basically, its this guy ^

     

    He just keeps moving towards you and if you don't defeat him before he gets right close to you, he takes out all of your party members one by one with one hit KO's. I remember when I played it, one of my characters (Kain) had this jump attack that takes him into the air for a while and out of reach. The first time I battled the wall boss, all of my party members died except Kain, who was still in the air. Somehow, because of some mirical, his last hit killed it. It was a very cheer-worthy moment.

    I had a nightmare about this boss after reading this post, AND I HAVEN'T EVEN PLAYED THIS GAME. blink.gif


  3. Okay, maybe I should have stepped in sooner. I'm glad you've all managed to agree to disagree, just please keep in mind there's a fine line between "discussing" and "arguing." Remember, there's no set definition of "disturbing," and people are going to disagree over what is or isn't disturbing. However, there's no reason to go into a serious debate over it. This tread is for research, but it's also for fun, like the "What's the worst game" thread. No need to get mad about it.

     

    For those who care, here's the Giygas battle (Warning, don't watch at night):

     

    Again, there's no set definition of "disturbing," but here's a list of examples of disturbing bosses (Warning, contains scenes from rated M games):


  4. Looked in AP, saw nothing, locked myself with a Balloon egg, looked in AP again, saw a Split, Nebula, Black, and two Glories. Cried.

     

    Abandoned an AP Water egg to do some rare hunting. Didn't find anything, so I picked back up what I thought was a CB Water egg. It was a Waterwalker. I still have 4 hours until I can abandon it. dry.gif


  5. Username:Mitesla

    Side I chose:Red

    My special feature:I've got a giant man-eating pet Jigglypuff tongue.gif

    Other: The Jigglypuff could have a red bandana or a red leash tied around its foot or something.

  6. SoulSilver: Oh look, shiny Girafferig! Hmm, my Haunter's ten levels too high to fight it, but my Togetic's fifteen levels too low... Maybe if I use her weakest attack, Dark Pulse... Wait a second, PSYCHIC TYPES ARE WEAK AGAINST DARK ATTACKS! *Critical hit* *Giraffarig dies* Why, Haunter, why?! *Whimper*


  7. Thank you to everyone who posted here! I truly appereciate your help with my research on disturbing bosses. In case anyone's wondering, here's what I came up with:

     

    The four main factors that make bosses disturbing:

    Implicit- Bosses disturbing because of unnerving meaning or symbolism. (Giygas)

    Explicit- Bosses that are obviously ugly, gross, or horrific or whom you must fight in a graphic or unnerving way. (Clotho)

    Unfitting- Bosses that aren't themselves very disturbing but seem so when compared to the rest of the game, resulting in the "But this is a children's game!" response. (Zero/02)

    Story- Bosses that are disturbing mostly due to their origins, intentions, actions, etc. (Broodmother)

    Most disturbing bosses will have some mixture of these four traits. Obviously personal fears will also factor in and different people will respond to one trait more than another.

     

    I'm keeping the thread open, so feel free to keep posting and discussing. Just post which non-horror boss you think is most disturbing and why. Feel free to discuss any bosses mentioned, but please follow forum rules and be respectful of other posters. No "LOLZ you fail cuz you're afraid of ___!" There's people who think Gygas is lame, and people who think he's the incarnation of evil. It's all really a matter of opinion. Now then, if anyone needs me, I'll be over here, trying to get Giygas to stop haunting my dreams...


  8. Mitesla's order:

    (I know it looks just like a fat, smiling pikachu, if you want anything changed, please ask)

    I was thinking along the lines of a Gengar with Pikachu ears, cheeks, and tail (like a Gengar disguised as a Pikachu). This is certainly interesting though. xd.png


  9. I have this unfortunate habit of naming hatchies as soon as they hatch instead of waiting till they gender. Usually I can come up with good neutral names but...

     

    Snowhite Serenity, Opal Starglow, Lavander Myst, Riviara, Farie Fay = Male

     

    Phantomwing, Crypt Shadow, Draco Daemon = Female

     

    Luckily I waited until after my Pink gendered but it's hard to make Pink sound macho... his name is Knight of the Pink Diamond. *head desk*

     

    Any idea when the rename action will be availiable?


  10. Agreed, it kinda destroys the tradition. And why did they call it "Epic yarn"? It doesn't even fit the game, perhaps they were aiming for something that covered up how childish it was. Overall I'm not entirely disappointed, the controls are nothing to complain about and I'm quite impressed with the graphics however I feel like I can't play it around people without someone saying "Um WTH is this like rated "I for immature" or somethin!?". Perhaps they should make a game that turns things around for the better and have people fall for the traditional BA Kirby all over again.

    Well, yeah. They did overload it with cuteness, and that's probably not a good thing given Kirby's reputation. I think they were trying to do something similar to Canvas Curse (notice both bosses are sorcerrers?), only instead of Kirby being sucked into a painting he was sucked into a... sock. And yes, I do miss copy abilities but like in Canvas Curse they're trying to do something different. Like I said, it's not a "traditional" Kirby game, but as a standalone game it's not bad.
