@  Fire Blazer : (06 December 2017 - 07:16 PM) if the VA strike helped bring in a bit more diversity, then I suppose that's a good thing, lol
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:07 PM) What I'm trying to get at is that the variety might have been caused by necessity by developers. As much as I was always a fan, I don't think some certain VAs that I thought had great range (ex - Cherami Leigh, DC Douglas) would have gotten their bigger roles without such a strike.
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:05 PM) I think it's mostly because of a VA strike. A bunch have agreed to not work with major game creators (until an agreement was reached early November this year). This included some extremely prominent VAs (ex - Jennifer Hale).
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:36 PM) I feel like the variety is increasing a little bit though, if only because with voice acting becoming more common and people recognizing voices more, there's a little bit of benefit to getting some different voices, perhaps
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:34 PM) lol yeah there are some really prominent VOs that will get a lot of roles, and often times big ones
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:59 PM) Oh, ok fine. You can ignore the post
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:58 PM) Nope was an error on my end
@  kirant : (26 November 2017 - 10:32 PM) Troy Baker takes an insane number of roles. Him, Matt Mercer, and Laura Bailey all seem to be plastered all over games.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2017 - 07:27 PM) Fire Blazer Yeah you are right. Just depends on how far it goes but then there is the question on what is to far or still ok.
@  Idiot : (26 November 2017 - 05:26 AM) There was a game I recently played where Troy Baker did the voice for like 4 different character. That dude is in everything.
@  Mig64 : (25 November 2017 - 05:57 AM) So I was watching the character intros for Fire Emblem Warriors, and I have to say Gharnef should've been voiced by Troy Baker.

@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:47 PM) and I think it'll stay this way for a bit. do you not like it? any alternatives that don't compromise the benefits of DLC? (e.g. Smash 4 DLC characters; would you rather delay the game for more characters, just so that they aren't released as DLC instead?)
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) and you can see how they do their mobile games, so... yeah, Nintendo was a bit late to do it, but they eventually did join the other big companies with the new way of selling games and such
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) uh, idk. I'm not against DLC as a whole, I just want it to be executed well. which to me mainly means, the original game should be a full experience, and any DLC should be extras and adequately priced; if you're selling a single costume for $1, or a single new gameplay map for $3, that kinda thing, that's way overpriced IMO.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:12 PM) I mean in terms of how they sell their games and then there are DLC's and every thing. Nintendo is clearly going into that kind of direction. (Actually is doing that already). Not that I am against them trying to keep profit high to stay in the business but there needs to be a better way.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) How do you think will nintendo change in the future
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 08:55 PM) lol, perhaps
@  kirant : (13 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) I assume nostalgia hits as soon as we get old enough to "fall out" of things.
@  Rujio : (13 November 2017 - 03:57 PM) aren't we supposed to be too young for nostalgia or something?
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) yet it feels bad since somewhere in my heart I miss all that

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
