Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

So there’s less than a day left with voting for the name of our mascot! But until then let the Name Rater tide you over with his personal opinions on your submissions!

Rightio, ladies and gents. It’s time for me, the wonderful… uh. Hang on, who am I again?

…Oh! That’s right! I am the Name Rater. I’m here to give my opinion on these nicknames for the Pokemon Wynaut submitted to this magazine, called…called… whatever it is I’m sure it’s nice.

You say this Wynaut is a reporter sort, eh? Well, let’s see if any of these suit it!

Opinion: Emulator Legitimacy

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Nowadays Game Boys, Game Boy Colors and Game Boy Advances (SDs) seem out of reach. Impossible to get now. Then great minds decided to dump the files of their GBA cartridges and make ROMs. Then further sciences on the internet made a practical way to play these ROMs or “Read Only Memory” files. Now we have Gameboys on our computers with an endless supply of games at our disposal. We can play Mario, Zelda, Pokemon and everything in between. The emulators offer much more then just being able to play classic games from our childhood; they make things convenient. Some of the features of the emulators include being able to increase the frames per-second with a push of button, effectively speeding through cut-scenes and other long and boring things. They allow easy input for Gameshark and Action Replay codes, when normally these things would have to be purchased. Yes these emulators provide much more ease while playing through old games. So, how does this relate to Wynaut and Pokemon?

You can choose up to three options. The poll expires at the end of the month, and hopefully by then or even beforehand, the Name Rater will give his two cents on them!

As a side note, our forums have undergone a scratch. It is unknown who or what is currently responsible for the scratching; maybe it was a large Skitty or somesuch. At any rate the forums have essentially had a restart, so if you want to join in the excitement and shout suggestions on what threads, sections or events involving fights to the death we ought to have, don’t hesitate to jump in!

The Magazine Mascot Needs a Name!

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Current readers will notice a change to the site; the banner at the top has changed to show off the mascot! Courtesy of An-chan for the Wynaut and Bay Alexison for the snazzy banner.

The mascot may not be surprising, but it’s not just a Wynaut, it’s a journalist Wynaut, at your service! And it desperately needs a name. After all, nicknames are all the rage these days, but we’ve been recently banned from the Name Rater’s house after asking one too many times about his opinion on our frankly amazing nicknames which he didn’t share the opinion of.


Hehe, Bobbaffet. You’ll never get old.

Thing is though business is slow for the Name Rater these days, and to make it up to him we decided to allow him some employment opportunity! That’s right – the Name Rater wants YOU! Either comment here or on the forums with nicknames idea for the Pokemon we just analysed in Wynaut and Wobbuffet, and he’ll rate them for you! Be warned though that he’s a bit grumpy. Just a bit.

Meanwhile, we’re having a competition to the name the mascot. This is how it’ll go: you can post in the fancy forum thread or here via a comment to suggest a name – or two, if you so please – and then we post all those names as a poll and choose a name for the lil’ fellow like that. Makes sense, no? And to make it fun some guy in a hat will make fun of your nicknaming ability. So what are you waiting for!?

You have a week, two max to get those suggestions in!

Conspiracy: How We Brainwash Pokemon

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Every so often, this person [pictured below] starts shouting stuff from their cardboard box down the street at people. To get them to shut up we offered to publish some of their words here. She also says she is keen to discuss more crazy ideas on our forums, but if you’re interested we advise taking earmuffs all the same.



HOW WE BRAINWASH POKEMON

Guys, Plasma were on to something, I tell you. They knew something nobody else did, about how we forced Pokemon to work for them, how we enslaved them. And you know one of the sneakiest ways we do this?
