@  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.

Fire Emblem Marathon (Planning Thread)

Posted 19 July 2016 - 07:49 PM

So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in participating in a streamed Fire Emblem marathon for FE1-12? Done through emulators, savestates are allowed, basically just want to go through every game and beat it somewhat quickly. But you don't have to be amazing at the game or a speedrunner or anything, basically just do what you can. You're free to even go through the story scenes too if you're so inclined, basically anything goes tbh.

 

I think we could give each player 5 days to beat their game max, but the faster the better: preferably in < 3 days. Preferably play on easier modes to limit restarts and such. We'll do them in order, so someone beats FE1 first, then FE2, then FE3, etc.

 

You have to be able to stream to twitch or something, we could have a dedicated channel for this, and just let people stream to that. Then we'll advertise a bit and people can just hop in whatever. I think the end-goal should be to beat all the 12 FE games by the end of say September. If we start like mid-August this gives us a month and a half. Just making stuff up but yeah, it won't be a true marathon because everyone has lives and all that.

 

So, anyone interested? if so, which games would you be interested in doing? We could possibly have people "take over" by sharing the savestates for certain games, that way another play can start playing where someone else left off, e.g. have one person to do Lyn's mode and another Eliwood's mode, or have one person do up to the route split in FE8, have someone else do the path up until they meet back up, and a 3rd person do up until the end of the game.

 

Let me know your thoughts, if you'd like to sign up for something (and if so how much you'd be willing to play, if you're comfortable streaming or need help, etc.), overall I think it'd be a cool idea! (We should try to keep it to FES people/cool people though, this is just for fun and all~)

 

FE1: Voffie

FE2: Cero

FE3: Cero (if no one else picks up)

FE4: Zac (looking for 2nd half help)
FE5:

FE6: DH_Ninja

FE7: Blazer (Lyn's Mode), Voffie (Eliwood Mode)

FE8: Blue Leafeon (Recorded)

FE9: Seraph

FE10: N7 Commander John

FE11: N7 Commander John (if no one else wants it)
FE12: Blazer (prefers help)

I'd be down to help. I guess. No idea what games I would go over. Not FE4 or FE5. Beating them once is enough.

This seems like a good idea. I don't have any way of streaming and I doubt my internet could take it anyway, or I'd DEFINITELY do FE8.

yay. this helps. a lot

I thought about it and a screenshot LP would be ok. See DH's screenshot LP of The Last Promise or google one for an example. however, it is a lot of work (moreso than just playing the game since you have to take screenshots and add comments, as opposed to just doing the playing and commentary at once) and you'd have to do it very quickly, but it's possible, and fine with me. :) you could start in advance and then once we get to FE8, post several times a day over the course of 2-3 days with the completed product. idk. wouldn't have to be very thorough.

 

up to you, just an idea, since more participants = cooler

Picture LP's are a lot of work and take up a lot of disc space lol.

 

If I can upload video sessions instead of just streaming it, I'm in. Being part of a project like this will give me more motivation to finish what I started. I'm only going to go Ephraim's route, however, because I have it more or less memorized and cannot play Eirika's due to having only ever beat it like, thrice. (The main issue is the part after Eirika and Ephraim reunite; enemy and player unit placements are mixed up so my strategies are thrown off completely.) So somebody else will have to do Eirika's route. I can put all the videos in a playlist so that they automatically move to the next one, making it kind of like a stream?

I think that'd be ok, but you'd have to have it done soonish and then like, make them private, and then when it's time unleash them all over the course of 2 days or so. actually, a better idea would be to use YouTube's schedule feature and just schedule them for one hour after another, once we figure out when the FE8 run will roughly take place.

 

reason why is when I advertise it I want to be like

 

"Next up, Blue Leafeon is doing a run of FE8 on YouTube! He'll have new videos up all day every hour until he beats the game, so check it out at (insert link)!"

 

Hopefully that makes sense

 

Also, commentary is optional, I forget how much LPing experience you have or the like but if you're not confident in your commentary or your recording equipment or whatever feel free to pass. (Hopefully I'm not offending you here.)

 

We should have commentary for the streams though IMO~

The problem is more or less my equipment and the lack of alone-time to record myself without interruptions.

 

But yes, that sounds good. I'll get to recording as soon as I beat Revelation. (I think I'm at the final chapter now.)

Count me in, happy to help with whatever games (1 and 2 I have the least knowledge of though)

 

I'd gladly do Fe9 or 10. Just need to redownload Dolphin and stuff because my copies of the games are in another country at the moment.

yuuusz, great. I'll sign ya'll up/update the first post.

 

I'm kind of willing to do 9 or 10 (whichever Seraph doesn't do) in which case that would just leave FE3-5 and 11. However I'll gladly give up 9 or 10 if someone else would rather do one of them.

I don't know when this is going to be starting, but Blazer did mention to me that he wanted to have a central twitch channel that we could all stream to make it easier for the audience to watch. Twitch has a hosting feature that will let everyone use their own personal channel still, while letting everyone stream onto the central channel that he wishes to have.

 

This is the hosting feature that I am talking about.
