@  Fire Blazer : (16 October 2018 - 03:50 AM) yoooo sup
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:34 AM) TOV Definitive Edition has me pretty hyped up for the franchise right now.
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:30 AM) Its been a while since I've been this excited to play a tales game lolol
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:28 AM) I'm finally playing Tales of the Abyss on the PS2 and it reminds me of the first time I played symphonia. I'm loving this game!
@  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.

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
