@  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

I know a lot of people are probably planning to play both the main 2 routes and possibly even the 3rd one if they can, but that being said, you're probably going to choose one route first... so now that the game is only like, 48 hours away (or a bit more if you're going physical), I must ask: which route do you intend to play first?

 

Honestly, I... haven't decided, but the Hoshido route is the only one I haven't beaten, so... I guess I'll go for that, then play the Nohr route, then play the 3rd route. I doubt I'll replay any of the routes so then I'll just pick some of the DLC to play if I still have the patience and money and call it quits. XP

I'm honestly not sure yet... I haven't put much thought into which route I'm going to play first, but I do plan on playing them all. Eventually. I'd rather upgrade my 3DS first.

i'm playing conquest first since i dabbled with the japanese version of hoshido(first 7 chapters or so iirc). i'm still excited for this despite all the problems i'm going to have with it, and plan to eventually play all 3 routes, but i probably won't be touching too much of the extra dlc. didn't with awakening so i shouldn't think fates will be any different. unless there's some big map packs or something like that.

After realizing that there wouldn't be Japanese voices and the localization fucks up a lot of stuff, I won't really consider getting the other two routes. Just Hoshido cuz AZN PRIDE here. Already pre-ordered it and everything. I'll just watch an LP of the other two or something.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

fair and fair to the both of you, haha

 

lol@getting Hoshido because of "AZN PRIDE" XD. Conquest is solid gameplay-wise but if you don't care for that then yeah, not a ton of reason to get the other two routes.

I'm going with Birthright first. Mostly because Amazon suggested that one to me first, but also because I want to try out the new eastern-inspired classes. Plus, based on my limited knowledge of the game, it seems like Hoshido is the "good guy" side, and I like to do that first and then the "bad guy" side. I'm going to go with Birthright -> Conquest -> Revelation.

ahaha, solid. Hoshido is definitely the lighter side, haha. And I almost feel like the game devs wanted the route of Birthright -> Conquest -> Revelation for whatever reason, though maybe that's just me, idk.

Hoshido.

 

Because I was like "I'll end up getting all three in the end, anyway. The real question is: WHICH BOXART DO I LIKE BEST?"

 

Also because I heard Nohr is hard.

 

Was anyone else thrown for a loop by the prologue? I was very confused for a very long moment, lol. I was like I THOUGHT I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE STARTING OFF ELSEWHERE?!

 

That being said, when is Invisible Kingdom/Revelation being released?

Makes sense. Birthright is the warmup, Conquest is the hard mode, and then Revelation is the path some of us kind of wanted to take the first time.

 

At least, from what I've gathered. I actually...don't know anything beyond what the trailers have shown me.

Conquest, because a friend is playing Birthright and we're super late Euros and there's no special edition on Amazon and the Nintendo one is £114 (an utter waste).

special edition execution is garbage

 

typical Nintendo bs amirite lol, why not just make people happy by letting them get what they want esp. when it involves spending more money

 

smh

 

moving on tho, Conquest is da best so that's a good decision

 

let me know what you think/feel free to discuss, not much srs discussion going on though then again idk, somehow it's kinda harder with the new games

Yeah, it's a bit of a joke. Still a little pissed with the dual nature of the games honestly - but it seems to be the way the video game economy is going - breaking whole games up into parts that they can nickel and dime you for.

 

Glad to hear it, I'll get round to playing both eventually though.

 

And yeah, will do :)

yup, one way or another. doesn't seem like anyone is really exempt, lol. it's not like games are necessarily bad, either, but now we don't just have expansion packs, we've got microtransactions, costume DLC, quest DLC, grinding DLC, extra story DLC, multiple versions (though that's basically always been a thing with Pokemon, but they basically acknowledge that there's no reason to get both, and that having multiple versions is more to promote trading, but has now turned into a tradition that from a technical standpoint, isn't necessary), etc.

 

 

Conquest is the only version of the game worth playing tbh.

 

normally I'd say something about how you're like, so rude with your comments or something but I just don't have it in me right now, heck I kind of agree with you... lol
