Re: [Twisted Game Concept] VG Supers

 

I think we were primarily working off properties that were video games first. Pokemon was a video game that got an anime/manga about it' date=' whereas Digimon was an anime/manga first then got a licensed video game.[/quote']

 

Well, actually, if we wanted to get nitpicky, Digimon actually began as a virtual pet toy that pre-dated Pokemon by a couple of years.

 

Digimon started out as a digital pet called "Digital Monster," similar in style and concept to the Tamagotchi. It was planned by Wiz and released by Bandai on June 26, 1997. The toy began as the simple concept of a Tamagotchi for boys (as Bandai was also the creator of the Tamagotchi). The v-pet is similar to its predecessors, with the exceptions of being much harder and being able to connect to fight other Digimon v-pets. Every owner would start with a Baby Digimon, train it, evolve it, take care of it, and then have battles with other Digimon owners to see who was stronger. The Digimon pet had several evolution capabilities and abilities too, so many owners had many different Digimon. In December, the second generation of Digital Monster was released, followed by a third edition in 1998. Now the new Tamagotchi Digimon is Pendulum that has a total of 9 in the series. Bandai also has released a Non Related Digimon Tamagotchi.

 

Of course, then came the other stuff. But then, I wouldn't worry too much about that as long as the characters are good.

 

But yes' date=' if we're going with either one, Renamon is another hottie. I've tried statting her before, but it's a bear to do on 350 without getting overly creative (statting the nearly useless Viximon and giving it Multiforms past 350 points) or, well, the character sucking, though that's relative to the power level ... if you consider Champion level to be 'standard superhero', then you can use Rookie level for thug-beating and Ultimate level for the climactic battles.[/quote']

 

Any VG character prior to 1990 would be hard to stat out at the standard point level, admittedly.

Yes, I know. :mad:

 

My daughter saw your thread, over my shoulder, and now wants to know when I'll start running something for her. She's a Poke-fanatic.

 

 

Guardians of Order did a game based on Pokemon/Monster Rancher/Digimon named "Cute and Fuzzy (Cockfighting) Seizure Monsters" Now owned by White Wolf:

The version that I have is the one that doesn't have "Cockfighting" in the title.

 

Though it does seem silly that nobody minds Pokemon until you bring up the fact that it's cutesy cockfighting, and then folks complain that you're bastardizing people's childhoods.
