@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 07:05 PM) Keep the spirit of Sly Cooper alive through Ghost of whatever-the-shit.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:55 PM) Also the fact that people are excited for a Sucker Punch game in 2018.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:41 PM) The fact that I can actually preorder Kingdom Hearts 3 makes my soul dance.
@  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.
@  acceptance : (13 June 2018 - 12:44 AM) I'll be honest, I'm completely out of touch with Fire Emblem. I couldn't so much as name a single character past Awakening.
@  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)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on 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
