Only required to do one movie and invite one person to the Join Avenue.

Apparently the TC is easily distracted.

Sorry if GameFreak doesn't take your disability into account when they design their games.

all the time Gamefreak spends on making minigames and all the space those minigames occupy on the cartridge could have been spent on improving the actual main game instead. that's what I'm talking about
minigames distract from the main game, because resources are cut from the main game to create them.

...Or the main game is complete without them, and GF decided to give you something to do after you finish the game.
How much do you think the game would've improved without the movie studio and Join avenue? What resources were possibly wasted on them aside from some strings of code?

I hope there are many "minigames", since that only adds to the content. If you don't like them, don't play them.

lol cart space. BW2 barely uses the extra 256mb space it had over BW1.

Also main game? As if that matters. There were no distractions in RBY and GameFreak still ended up botching the main game's quality.

BW2 introduced the PWT, Skyscraper and Treehollow despite the dev team being "distracted" with Pokestar.

Clearly they know how to manage their time and aren't easily lulzdistracted.

3DS carts go up 8GB. Unless every line of dialogue was voiced this won't come even close to filling that.
Pokemon generation six! All aboard the hype train!

stuff like the movie studio in B/W2

PokeStar was awesome.

While the movie studio was stupid I want cool more minigames and distractions and involve using your pokemon! Things like the pokeathlon and what not.

I like using my pokes for something other than battling
#17Leo_ColtPosted 1/9/2013 8:09:40 AM
I'm a sucker for these things. Hell, they should take out all the pointless battling in the game.
#18ClassyOldHatPosted 1/9/2013 8:21:07 AM
I actually liked Pokestar. It was nice to have some battles turn out to be more like puzzles, and I hope there is a similar feature in future games, even if the rewards aren't as good as them were in B/W2. Though, maybe next time, remove having "lines" or make them a little more clear. And don't have so many strange endings that are nothing but "Survive 20 turns with an overleveled pokemon, then immediately watch yourself stall for twenty turns again in the theater."

Video, Audio and Image data are the three biggest space hogs, period. The entire machine code for this pair of games will be smaller than the sum of the audio files, that I can assure you. Cartridge space being used to improve gameplay? The **** are you on about?

I like them being in there. However it is annoying be forced to do them the first time.

I never got into the movie thing. However Join Ave. was good because it gave a way to get fossils and Master Balls.
