@  acceptance : (12 July 2018 - 05:57 PM) As far as we know, anyway.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 July 2018 - 08:29 PM) ooo, Felover's alive, lol
@  xcrash1998 : (09 July 2018 - 11:33 AM) He will be remembered, our brother in arms.
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:35 PM) BUM- BUM- BUUUUUM
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:34 PM) And in the end; xcrash1998 never did find out what was up with Felover3. In fact, no one ever heard from either of them again.
@  xcrash1998 : (03 July 2018 - 12:41 PM) Hey man, whats up
@  Felover3 : (03 July 2018 - 01:56 AM) Been a while
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 11:12 PM) In retrospect it's pretty obvious, what with the Johnny Bosch and sword revving, but according to my doctor when I was 12 i have ADD.
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 10:39 PM) Holy shit it just clicked in my head that the guy in the DMC5 trailer is Nero. Neato!
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) Granted, that makes it sound like I have no interest in Fates (and I really don't, outside of a couple characters)...so I guess my hopes are above "fairly negligible" right now.
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) I think I've got higher hopes going in than for Fates. Fates, as soon as the trailer hit, made it pretty clear it was going to eschew an interesting "both sides have points" story for a fairly clear cut "good guys" story and "villain" narrative.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)

Gamestop canceling preorders

I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but...

 


If you pre-ordered the special edition of Fire Emblem Fates at GameStop in hopes of getting those bonus keychains, you should start checking for availability elsewhere. Due to a system glitch, the retailer mistakenly allowed more pre-orders after meeting their allocation way back on November 18th. Because of this, GameStop is cancelling all orders for Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition that were made after that date.

This hasn't affected me, since I haven't preordered, but I can't imagine the amount of disappointment and anger people must be feeling over this.

yup, posted this on muh Twitter uh... a few days ago? once I got confirmation

 

it's pretty lame, even if it's just an accident or whatever. def feel bad for those people who thought they'd get it.

 

personally I played it safe and ordered from Amazon ASAP because I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to get it from GS, and that plan worked out since I didn't, lol. now at least I get it. (I didn't get a physical copy of Awakening or the Japanese version of Fates either so I'd be a bit salty if I missed out again haha)

lol I didn't get a physical copy of Awakening, either, but I got something even better. A 3DS my favorite color! XD Pre-installed Awakening was just a bonus.

 

I need to preorder one of the games, though. Question is, do I want Birthright or the other one? HMMMM...

yeah I (also, assuming I interpreted your statements right) got the Awakening 3DS, so that's why I don't have a physical copy lol

 

and gl with that haha, kind of a tough choice if you don't have something you really like about one or the other that makes it easy

Yes, I got the Awakening 3DS. As silly as it is, I actually wanted a 3DS for a while before, but because I knew Awakening was coming to the US, (E3 leaks, yay) I was hoping with all my heart that they would bring over that beautiful cobalt blue 3DS as well. So I held out on getting one. The thing I was most upset about, though, was that Club Nintendo cheated me of $40 worth of coins. >_>

 

It really is a tough choice. GEE, DO I WANT TO SIDE WITH THE PEOPLE WHO BIRTHED ME, OR THE PEOPLE WHO KIDNAPPED AND RAISED ME? HMMMMM...

 

Despite the  kidnapping part, I kind of feel like this is one of those instances where there is no right choice, and you're going to regret your decision either way. From what I heard, though, Hoshido is the easier one, and Nohr is the harder? Does either one have an open world map like FE8/FEA?

woah, bad CN. glad they're replacing that system, even if it did net me a few games and stuff...

 

hahaha

 

yeahh no, the right choice is implied to be the 3rd route that Nintendo already revealed the premise of, lol. And yeah, Hoshido is easier and more like Awakening, and Nohr is harder and still a lot like Awakening but they made some semblance of an attempt to limit grinding/money/weapons/experience. As for the world map, there's something like it but I don't think any of them are quiet open like Awakening's or FE8's. Hoshido is probably the closest though? I didn't beat Hoshido though so I can't say too much about that route's gameplay, I only heard some and it was mostly stuff akin to "the map design is bland" haha

^ Eh, if I got through the first part of Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, I think I can get through that. << Hopefully the plot doesn't get as bland as the chapters in FE6 where you go to...the ice country or Sacae. FE6 was fun, but it felt like it was kinda shoved out before all the kinks were worked out lol. STILL BETTER THAN THIS OTHER CRAP I'VE BEEN PLAYING. *glares at PSMD*

sounds like you'll live, then. just try to focus on Fates' good parts and ignore the bad parts, even if it feels like someone is shoving the rotten intestines of a fish in front of your face. sorry just had to say something gross like that

^ The good thing about Fire Emblem is that if I don't want to see parts of the story, the Start button always exists. :D
