@  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

Fates has come and gone and now everyone has more or less solidified their opinions on it. So... Regardless of which path you bought, I'm interested to know the different reasons people bought Fates. I was going to post this on r/FireEmblem to see what they thought, but I realized it's hard to post it in a place that large without a ton of people seeing the question as condescending. As for me, I just bought it because 1. I wanted another Fire Emblem game to play (that wouldn't cost me over 100 dollars like Radiant Dawn) and 2. The story idea intrigued me, even if I would be forced into one path at purchase.  

So why did you buy Fates? Was it only for the sake of having the next Fire Emblem game? Or were there more reasons?


Got Pokemon X/Y or OR/AS? Battle me! Or trade with me... Trading is cool too.

Have Smash Bros for Wii U? Battle me there too!

This, pretty much. That, and I was hoping that everyone was overreacting when they said the game sucked. They were not. lol

 

I bought all three paths and now I feel like I must convince somebody else to never touch Revelation to make up for the fact that I bought that piece of crap.

Yep just because it was the next FE game. I got Conquest though because I liked the look of the Nohrian siblings way better than the Hoshido siblings.

yeah i basically only bought it because it was fire emblem. after blazer's rant about how he felt about the Japanese release i figured it probably wasn't going to be worth it to expect anything out of it, but "w/e it's fire emblem so i'll enjoy it" was my basic mindset. i kinda wish i hadn't, but every part of me knows that it wasn't avoidable.

As the others said - it was the next one. Got Conquest, was rewarded with disappointment. I traded it in, but I kinda feel like I should pick it up again when it's cheaper and give it another shot - or Birthright. Eh.
