This Insane Pokemon Shooter Is The Game We Deserve

Millenials. We, with our frazzled brains and our attention spans like a squashed grape, this is the Pokemon we asked for. This is the Pokemon we deserve. A Pokemon shooter where we fire Pokeballs at massive Pokemon beasts that somehow shrink with every shot. A Pokemon where we launch ourselves on bungee cords into the air and drive around in a jeep for some reason. This is Pokemon Millenial Edition.

I’m not sure what this is. I think it’s satire. It’s also a little bit hilarious. It could be a comment on video games and what we expect of them, it could be an attempt to satirise the way older generations discuss ‘millenials’. I suspect it’s all of these things and more: a giant mega piss-take.

But for all its rough edges, am I wrong to suspect that Pokemon Millenial Edition sort of looks… fun!

It sort of looks like Titanfall crossed with Pokemon crossed with Monster Hunter crossed with… I don’t know — Just Cause 2?

Hook me up. This looks intense!
