@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

I was checking Nintendo of Japan's website last night for new releases and I come to find out that apparently Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword was already released on the Wii U Virtual Console back in May. So I made a list of Fire Emblem games that were released on the Virtual Console service for the 3DS and Wii U:

Dark Dragon and the Sword of Light (3DS/Wii U)
Gaiden (3DS/Wii U)
Mystery of the Emblem (Wii U)
Geneaology of the Holy War (Wii U)
Thracia 776 (Wii U)
Blazing Sword (Wii U)
Sacred Stones (Wii U)

Shadow Dragon (Wii U)

Aside from Blazing Sword and Sacred Stones, they're the usual Japan-only FE games. But with the boost in the series' popularity since Awakening's release and the added surge from Smash Bros, do you think there's a small chance a few of these can be released internationally?

I'm not sure what to expect, but I wouldn't mind the releases whatsoever, haha. Maybe we'll see something post-FExSMT if interest builds.

the only one we're likely to see is mystery of the emblem, and i only say that because we got the first part of the story already. honestly i don't think Intelligent Systems believes FE is big enough to bother with virtual console releases(except maybe games already released outside Japan). that said i really want genealogy to be released to america in any way. i don't care if it's a Iphone/Android exclusive, i just want it.

Just to let you know that Gaiden and Sacred Stones have been released on the Wii U Virtual Console, so I'll edit that in the first post.

Yup, you're on top of things, haha. FE7 is out on the European Wii U eShop, meaning it's not entirely possible for us to get it in North America, too. I'd like to start talking about getting a translated version of FE6 here too, but... I should probably not get ahead of myself when there are so many other things kind of higher on the priority list XD

For you European fans out there, Shadow Dragon will be released on the E-Shop for the Wii U Virtual Console on July 2!

Hope it gets a VC release in the US soon! I already have the game for the DS but I'll probably get it if/when I get a Wii U

Heyo, hopefully it comes to North America sooner than the other FE games did, though I won't hold my breath or anything, lol.

 

Here's some footage:

 

 

Hey, at least we're getting it. Clearly everyone should go buy the game and spam Miiverse about how we want an FE12 translation until we get it, because that will work, right?

I just want the Japanese games out on the Virtual Console. They have released Japanese only games before, though. The closest chance we may get is probably going to be FE6 if Roy continues to grow in popularity.

you want the Japanese games but in English, right? lol. I'd be super happy about that but doubt it's going to happen without some kind of huge push/motivation. they had an opportunity when Roy came out (maybe alongside Earthbound Beginnings) but that's not really a thing now, haha. I can't really think of when they would have another good opportunity to launch a translated FE6 in a way that it would get attention, but who knows. funny enough, a game like that might even sell a few consoles, LOL.
