Story Telling / Cracked: A Nuzlocke Story
August 06, 2017, 03:24:26 AM
Hey, everyone! It's been a long time since I posted in this board, but man are there some memories here.

Anyway, I know I've been beating around the bush with bringing back the old Great NSM Pokemon Adventure, but I think it's time to let that go. I definitely got my big start in writing for fun with it, but the style and story I came up with back in early high school doesn't really appeal to me anymore. (Also the cast was a little too big to even try to make meaningful characters.)

So, I've come up with a spiritual successor. Recently, I joined the official Nuzlocke Forums and decided to partake in their Ultimate CommunityLocke Event (UCL for short.) I just wrapped up all the gameplay, and have the entire story planned out. I played through all seven regions to make this happen, so it'll be a lonnnnnnng story.

Anyway, I figure I'd share it here for you all as a sort of spiritual successor to the good ol' days. I plan to release chapters daily here until I'm caught up with the run on the Nuzlocke site, then I'm going to put up each new chapter one week after I plan to post it to the Nuzlocke site. That way, even if I'm a bit late, it won't feel too noticable here.

I hope you all will stick with me, and enjoy!

yo whatup

So, after getting the old writing bug back in me, I decided to start writing more on this.

Then I said, "f*** that, that old one was cringy af"


I'm gonna rebuild this story from the ground up. None of the cringy gijinka bs, toning down the sheer amount of characters in the main cast, and giving the opportunity for newer members to get in. I'm gonna go through and see which characters I could get rid of since they haven't been around in a while and go from there.

Feedback appreciated! Suggestions to keep from the old story, what to change, etc would be awesome.
Off-Topic / A Fond Farewell
January 01, 2016, 09:08:27 PM
This is going to be kinda long, so bear with me.

Let's take a trip back to 2010. That Easter, I was given an amazing gift from my grandparents. They had helped me purchase an upright digital piano. I was ecstatic. I spent all day in my room playing that thing. One day, I decided to go online and see if I could find any sheet music from some video games, since I was getting bored of playing the same songs over and over.

That's when I ran into NSM.

This site had everything I ever wanted as far as sheet music went. I would check the site every so often to see if there were new sheets. It would always take a while, but eventually new stuff would pop up. Around July of 2011, I discovered the forums for the first time.

That's when I met all of you.

I registered for an account on July 10th, 2011 (same day as Nebbles!) I started off by requesting a piece from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. Bespinben, of course, immediately got to work on it.

That's when I became a part of something great.

For the next 4 and a half years, I was on NSM almost every day. It was always a place where I felt safe, a place I felt happy. I was going through a rough time in my life. I struggled with depression, I nearly committed suicide, my mom was ill with cancer, among a few things. I truly believe that NSM saved me through that time, along with a little help outside in the real world of course!

That's when I realized I'd have to move on.

About a year ago, I realized that my time on NSM was limited. I wasn't connecting with any of the newer members as well as the older ones who had come and gone, and I just felt like I was going through the motions. I decided that I would set my date of departure for July 10th, 2016 to make it an even five years. But it doesn't always work out that way.

I'm not really saying good-bye.

It's not like I'm leaving the entire internet. I'll still see a good share of you on Skype and the like. If you want to look me up, my Skype name should be in my profile. If I never really say good-bye, I never left. I'm just not here right now. Who knows? I may even come back someday, depending on where and how the chips fall.

Now, before I go, I'd like to apologize for my actions regarding recent incidents. I hadn't been on the forums in like a week, had no idea this was going on, and then didn't even know where the argument was taking place. Deku, I cannot apologize enough for what I did, but I'd like you to know that I had no ill intentions when I did it. I was just unsure of what to do.
Olimar, I'd like to apologize for taking the argument in the Chat Logs too far. I got going, and you didn't show any signs of letting up either, so it just blew up. I know we don't always see eye to eye, but one day I'd like to hope we can be on better terms like we used to be.

Anyway, my time is at hand. I'll see you all around.

Sincerely yours,
Marty Balmer (K-NiGhT)

NEXT YEAR'S "NSM Superlatives" HOST: manio, Latios212, Dudeman

As you can see, I've taken all of the superlatives from last year and put them on the list. But that alone is no fun! That's why I'm calling on all of you. I need you all to suggest new categories for this year! Another feature this year is that you can choose to remove a category you deem unfit to be included for whatever reason, as long as the host agrees. This could help remove some of the...toxicity from this most fun time of year.

I will be accepting PM submissions for new categories and removal of categories until 12/3/2015 at 11:59:59 PM. Get on it, folks!

Once again, welcome to this year's NSM Superlatives! It's going to be a great one, I'm sure of it!

EDIT: Voting is now open. Please submit your votes through PM by December 25, 2015 at 11:59:59 PM.
Nintendo / General Super Smash Bros. Discussion
July 10, 2015, 07:56:08 PM
I realize that we have the thread for the most recent Smash games, but I'd like to talk about the other entries in the series. particularly maylay With EVO coming up and stuff, I'm just wondering if there's anyone else out there that follows the competitive scene. Who are you all rooting for next week?

also here's a nice hype piece to start off discussion.
Nintendo / General Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
June 18, 2015, 08:05:17 AM
Quote from: SlowPokemon on June 18, 2015, 07:55:58 AMHonestly for as much love as that series has on this website, I don't think it's out of the question to have a general Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series thread.

So, this can be where we discuss the series as a whole, seeing as a lot of us love these games. Also, if you're going to join me on my quest to play all of the games again, you can post your progress here!

"Friendly friends! Always do your best!"
Nintendo / Splatoon
May 29, 2015, 10:24:07 AM
Kinda surprised we haven't had a topic about this yet.

So, the game came out today, and I managed to get it along with the 3 amiibos for a pretty nice discount :D Love the game so far!
Nintendo / Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
March 21, 2015, 10:02:37 AM
Hey :P this thread is pretty much for Monster Hunter discussion, since we don't seem to have one yet. Don't know how many people here besides me, Nebbles, and Maelstrom play but maybe some more of you will be able to get the game and join us.

Anyway, yeah ask questions and stuff here and maybe Nebbles will be able to answer them lol. I still have no idea what I'm doing.
So the Secret Bases in ORAS are pretty freakin sweet. You can share them with other people and have them show up in your game worlds with QR codes (I think), so I figured why not share them here! You can save the code to the SD card in your 3DS and then post them here.

Music / #SongOfTheDay
October 30, 2014, 11:48:16 PM
Post what song you think fits the day you had on that particular day!

Obviously, since I started this thread on Halloween, this should be the first #SongOfTheDay

Nintendo / Hyrule Warriors
October 08, 2014, 12:14:48 PM
Is this game any good? I've been thinking of getting it, but I'd like a couple second opinions before i rush down to walmart.
Gaming / The "Top 10" Thread!
June 14, 2014, 01:37:10 PM
I got this idea this morning in my post-night shift delerium, and it actually turned out pretty well, so I'm going to try it out. This thread is going to be updated on a weekly basis with various Top 10 lists, with the amount of items changing as needed. Every Monday, I will announce what the list for the week will be, and I will set a Saturday deadline. Now this is where you all come in. If you would like to see your favorite [insert item here] in the list, just send me a PM detailing what the [insert item here] is and why you like it. The best and most detailed submissions will be put on the list on Saturday. The new list will be featured on the first post of this topic, while the older lists will be reserved in an archive of sorts right underneath this post.

Now, to give you all an example, I will be posting a list of my Top 10 favorite Mario Kart tracks later today.

I hope you all like this idea, and I hope it takes off!

Feedback / What is considered spam?
January 04, 2014, 03:21:08 PM
Quote from: Olimar12345 on January 04, 2014, 03:07:35 PMRequests aren't spam. No more further discussion is to take place here. Create a topic in the feedback board if you guys want to continue talking about this, but the next post in this thread better not be anything but someone accepting the request.
Okay, so if requests aren't spam, then what is considered spam? If someone could please provide a consistent definition of what spam actually is according to the site, then maybe we can get this whole requesting thing sorted out. We need to reach some sort of compromise to prevent further incidents in the forums, imo.
Gaming / NSM's Gaming Buyer's Guide
December 25, 2013, 10:31:34 PM
Hey, all. So with the holiday season coming to a close, some of us (including myself) may be finding our wallets a little bit heavier due to lazy gift ideas from abstract family members (aka cards with money in them.) What's one of the first things you'll probably think to do with it?

"Save it for something nice!"
Perhaps. What else?

"Give it to a charity!"
Get the fuck out.

Why, spend it on them fancy-schmancy new vidya games! But with such a wide variety of systems and games to choose from, how do you decide what to spend your holiday money on?

That's where NSM comes in to save the day. This thread will eventually contain loads of information on the current consoles and their games, as well as a community created list of games held in high regard by many of our fine members. I hope everyone will use this to their advantage whenever needed to find out what games they want to buy.

Story Telling / Kid Icarus: Rise of the Fighters
September 30, 2013, 08:18:06 PM
Prologue: A Goddess in Need

A streak of lightning and a crash of thunder ripped through the sky yet again, waking a young girl from her light slumber. However, even though she was only the size of an eight year old, this was no child. This was Viridi, the goddess of nature. She commanded the Forces of Nature, and up until recently, her goal was the extermination of all humans on Earth.

That is, until she met that dimwitted angel, Pit, and the Goddess of Light, Palutena. The two of them waged war against her while simultaneously battling the God of the Underworld, Hades. During their war, which had raged on for over three years, Viridi had had a change of heart, and decided to aid Pit and Palutena in defeating Hades and restoring peace to the world.

The goddess got up from her bed and walked to the window to view the storm outside. For some reason, this storm gave her a sense of foreboding. She ran her hand through her long, blonde hair and shivered a little bit. She debated on whether or not to call Pit's "evil" clone, Dark Pit to come to her aid, but she decided that it wouldn't make much of a difference. He had probably left somewhere, anyway. Ever since the battle with Hades had ended, Dark Pit had been training his wings to the point of exhaustion, just so he was able to fly on his own. That was just him, though. He was always the lone wolf.

Viridi shook her head. What am I doing? she asked herself. I am a Goddess. I am not allowed to get lost in thought like this. Something terrible could happen if I let my guard down for too long.

You're right, an eerily familiar voice whispered into her head.

Viridi jumped and spun around, but saw no one. "Who's there?" she shouted. "Show yourself!"

It's a shame there's nothing left of me to show, the voice whimpered with sarcasm. One of the minor setbacks of being dead. At least tell me you haven't forgotten this dashing voice!

"Hades!" Viridi gasped.

Ding ding ding! the evil god cackled. We have a winner!

"What do you want?" Viridi demanded.

Oh, dear Viridi, Hades groaned somewhat sensually. It's not what I want, it's what you want! Last time I checked, that was the destruction of all humans.

"I don't have a problem with the humans anymore," Viridi huffed. "I've left them to their devices."

You don't seem to understand, Hades said. You really don't have a choice in the matter. I need the souls of those humans to get my body back, and you're going to help me get them! Suddenly, a black storm cloud separated itself from the black sky up ahead and drifted into Viridi's room. It let loose a wicked bolt of lighting that hit the goddess head-on. Viridi screamed as she fell to the ground paralyzed. The cloud picked her up and carried her outside into the storm.
