    Default VG Weekly Poll #20: Initial reaction to "Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition"?

    Welcome to the twentieth instalment in the Video Games Forum's new weekly series of polls! (Don't ask my why I mislabelled last week's as the 20th >>).

    Centered around the Pokemon series of video games, these polls will be based on the various different aspects of the popular video game franchise. Every Monday, a Video Games staff member will post a new poll that'll remained stickied up on top of the forum. Suggestions for polls and questions can be sent to Joshawott, and they could possibly used for new polls (credit will be given, of course).

    With that out of the way, here is the poll, which is quite topical if I do say so myself: What was your initial reaction to the announcement of "Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition"? Were you already enthusiastic, were you willing to dismiss it as a bad idea straight away, or are you waiting to hear more about the game?

    As much as I would have loved it to have been the third version (gimme those move tutors already!) I'm actually hopeful about this game. As I said in another thread, I've only ever played one game similar to this (or what I think is similar, judging by the screens shown) and I really liked that game, so I'm quite optimistic about this game's potential.

    So yeah, definately looking forward to this atm. Although I do think it's too early to really say whether I will like it or not and I usually only play the main series games. But so far, I'm interested.

    (I would still like grey, though.)

    I'm cautiously optimistic... does that count as 1 or 3?

    Eh, I voted 1. Though I'm usually similar to blitzle in that I mainly just play main-series games. (Partially because of that goddamn Salamence in Ranger...)
    Yes, I am a Brony. Problem, manly men?

    Since I've never even heard of the game it's crossing over with, I'm waiting for more information.

    The art looks nice, but I've been misled by games with pretty art before. As Crystal_Talian said, I haven't heard of Nobunaga so I'll wait and see.

    When I heard and saw this thing... one thing's for sure. My body was not ready. The whole thing came out of the left field and I think it's a cool awesome combination of stuff, even if I have almost never heard of the other series. Give me it any time soon, preferably officially translated!
    Hey, it's Noivern here. I like Noivern a lot. I like Katy Perry. I want a Hydreigon plushie. Also, I'm a total PC geek.

    Instantly positive. I'd never heard of Nobunaga's Ambition before, but I do love Tactical Turn-based RPGs, and the Ranger and Mystery Dungeon games have given me hours of fun. This could be my favourite spin-off game yet.

    Who is this git?

    I won't bash it because I haven't played it yet, but I am very worried about them straying away from the original concept of Pokemon.

    So I vote Neutral.

    First reaction? Google "Nobunaga's Ambition."

    Second reaction? Oh hell yes. I wouldn't have expected Pokémon to do a crossover like this, but... yes. I really, really want to buy it. Yes.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.

    I was so excited that, like two other posters before me in this thread, I just had to change my avatar.

    Nah, I was more like "huh."
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    My mind went blank when I first saw this because I really wanted a Pokemon crossover game. I feel so excited now.
