Did that even really need to be asked? Any thread with the word gardevoir in it is a bait thread.

Topic: Off-topic / Why Gardevoir is a bad pokemon.

Judging pokemon by their video game stats is certainly one way to do it. If everyone did that, only like 10 different pokemon are everyones favorites.

I’d like to think most people pick their favorites by art design.

Topic: Kongregate / Newgrounds Vs. Kongregate?

I think NG is better, but I was here first so it’s a moot point for me.

I seem to do that often when it comes to games/sites that are similar, I stick to the one I found first even if the other one is better. I don’t like to play 2 games that are similar at the same time, or be active on two similar sites at the same time. There is literally nothing that is keeping me on this site except for the fact that I have been here a while so I am kinda settled in. Kongregate is nothing special.

That is a huge ripoff, only pay if desperate.

Topic: Off-topic / Are the Ace Attorney games on DS good?

If you love that genre(heavily dialogue driven and contrived “gameplay” segments that could very well just be changed into pure visual novel), then you will like them.

Topic: Off-topic / People quoting scientists are full of shit

Yeah I’ve heard that statement before, and it very well might be true, but who cares?

All information like that is good for is if you ever find yourself on a trivia show like Jeopardy.

Topic: Off-topic / Pokemon is an overrated cashgrab

Of course it’s overrated, nothing as big as pokemon could be normally rated.

I loved pokemon when I was in middle school and high school, but kinda lost interest in it after that. I think for me they just started adding way too many pokemon. Not that I can blame them..good luck having an almost 20 year long franchise based on collecting without adding new content. I’m surprised we aren’t in the thousands yet.

Topic: Kongregate / And you're wondering why people use AdBlock

Originally posted by yumyum36:

Guys, don’t use adblock, it cuts off revenue to this site. It’s generally a bad practice. Or would you all prefer that people kongregate’s servers just stopped running altogether |:

Anyways, isn’t there something with adblock where you can turn it off for specific sites in the least(i.e. Kongregate)

I really dislike not giving them money versus giving possibly 10 seconds of time to help them.

Well the thing is, I have little incentive to disable adblock. If sites don’t want me to block their ads, make it worth the trouble for me to view your ads.

You know how it is very difficult to trust someone again once they lie to you even a single time? The last time I did not use ad block, my computer crashed because of the ad. I henceforth will keep my adblock on until kong proves to me that will not happen again. The point of ads is to show you something that you might use, and a good ad does this in a very non-intrusive way. Most mobile apps that I use have what I would call “good” ads, so I don’t use a blocker for mobile.

Topic: Kongregate / When are we gonna replace trialpay?

Originally posted by adv0catus:

TrialPay is a win-win for Kongregate. Kongregate doesn’t need to handle the support for when TrialPay offers don’t work. Plus, when the offers do work, Kongregate has users with kreds for their games, which is probably likely to increase the likelihood that the user will purchase kreds in the future.

The thing people don’t seem to understand is that from TrialPay’s perspective, Kongregate is the client, not Kongregate’s users. From the client’s perspective, there is no reason whatsoever to change service providers.

It may be a win-win for the admins, but it ain’t for the users.

I know that you love to look at everything from the admins view point though.

Topic: Off-topic / Do you think its ever okay to hit a WOMEN?

Originally posted by HappyAlcoholic:

Whether the answer is yes or no, both answers are inherently sexist.

The real question should be “Is it okay to hit anyone at all?”
If they aren’t hitting you in the first place, is it okay to hit them?

Well, society has kinda drilled it into us that women are extremely fragile and we should never use any kind of force in dealing with them. It’s kinda hard NOT to be sexist by your definition. It’s just not that easy to treat men and women the same in physical situations. Women are an average of 5 inches shorter and 30 pounds lighter. They are not equal in that regard.

Well they have forums and some sort of guild-like feature. I am/was in one, but never actually contributed anything to it.

Topic: Off-topic / Kids are annoying as ****, what do people see in them?

A large portion of the way a child behaves is based on how their parents raise them. I tend to think that children who are always yelling and causing trouble a lot just were not raised very well. The parent probably let’s them get away with too much. There is a distinct difference in youthful energy and just flat out being obnoxious.

I use to babysit a lot when I was younger. The kids ranged from ages 2-8 or so, and some were well behaved, and some were impossible to deal with unless you ignored their parents wishes and took your own action(those were one day jobs for the most part, lol).

Originally posted by Holy2334:

They could be like Ninja Kiwi and remove it :) Besides all free offer systems are pretty much the same… although I prefer the ones with videos. That would be nice.

A couple years ago every offer I took worked reliably. 100% success rate except surveys.

So no, not every free offer system is the same. The old one was better. The last time I took an offer, I got a virus. The current system is not only unreliable, it’s dangerous to your computer. Nobody should be using it imo. You have to put in way too much effort for not nearly enough kreds for it to be worth it. ONLY take an offer if it’s something you would have done anyway.

Topic: Off-topic / How many hours of sleep are people supposed to do?

It varies. It is possible for some people to get 3 hours of sleep a night and be completely healthy, and for some even 12 hours is not enough.

For me, 6 hours is sufficient.

Topic: Off-topic / Do you think its ever okay to hit a WOMEN?

I am equally as likely to hit a male as I am to hit a female in an equivalent situation.

Sometimes someone just needs to be punched in the face, and their gender is irrelevant.

Topic: Off-topic / Android Games

The source of the game has no bearing on time investment. All that matters is if the structure of the game allows for hours of consecutive play, or if it’s a "you must stop now’ type of game(like the king games).

I play some mobile games for hours in a row at times, and sometimes for 5 to 10 minutes. Platform does not matter.

Have fun paying big buck for something that’ll only limit your mind.

have fun getting a good career while saying “so i got a degree from the internet”

It’s called self employment. All the most successful people in the world did that.

Don’t even need to have graduated elementary school for that.

You say it like it’s even a big deal. Girls want it just as much as guys do. Often all you gotta do is ask them and they will say sure.
