@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

See poll.

 

Personally, yes, since I pre-ordered the Limited Edition. What about y'all? Are you getting the standard version, LE, or nothing at all? And if you're not getting it, why not?

All the yes for Limited Edition.
It's a remake of my favourite game of the series, and I really don't give a damn what anyone else says about it.

someone else likes Gaiden??? *gasps*

 

based on what you said it's not like you care but IMO it's p. decent for a remake so hopefully you like it, lol. don't want to say too much with you seemingly being a big fan of Gaiden and all so I'll leave you to it, lemme know what you think once you play it (or once you beat it) XP

Am I getting this game, of course I;m getting this game.

 

 

They're staying faithful to Gaiden, while still making changes to the game that will make it more than "Gaiden, but better quality" which I would still buy because Gaiden is amazing. 1-5 bows, magic costing HP, WITCHES TELEPORTING TO FUCK YOU OVER IT'S ALL WONDERFUL.

welp. Yay! I probably will like it (that's an understatement)

...I'm also one of those weirdos who chose Deen in the original. Hopefully there's more incentive to do so this time than just swordfighter bias, haha.

just 8 more daaaays.

I think witches are thankfully not that strong in this game (at least, not the teleporting ones), so the random teleportation (I still can't figure out how they decide where to warp to) isn't TERRIBLE, thankfully. (at least imo, won't promise you won't hate it, lol)

is it really that weird to choose Deen?

 

I chose Sonia both times I think (i.e. in my recent FE2/Japanese SoV playthroughs), mages are just p. good and also I really didn't want to fight magic-users, slowly tanking the swordfighters seemed like the easier thing to do compared to dealing with the witches or whatever it was, lol

Mages are good, yes. But infinite reclassing due to Dread Fighter > Villager is much more awesome, haha.

oh, that's true... I've never done that though, since I don't want to work my units back up again... I've never really liked reclassing, tbh, and the last few FE games just kinda solidified that. I like set classes/promotion paths.

 

there's a little charm in Dread Fighter -> Villager -> something else because of the novelty compared to other classes that have no such option, but somehow FE11-14 (which IIRC all had reclassing) just kinda ruined reclassing for me :(

I plan to get this game eventually but I don't see that happening for a few months. I have other things I want to finish/play first but, well, I've said the same thing in the past and I still ended up buying more games, so my words cannot be trusted. I think I have self-control now but we'll see.

did you beat the Japanese version though? we never did talk about it after a certain point, lol

 

what do you mean by "cheese"? do you mean like, the "cheesy" strat of farming in the Lost Woods in Gaiden and how that isn't really a thing anymore in Echoes? or using angel rings to get +2 in stats and make characters OP? you were pretty vague so I'm taking kinda wild guesses here and could be totally wrong lol

I am buying the crap out of this game as soon as I have the ability to. My level of hype cannot be measured by any physical scale.

I got up to chapter 5 but decided to wait for the english version before continuing. 

 

And by cheese I meant stuff like Dear cheesing monster encounter, or Peg Sisters being ridiculous. Pretty much anything you consider cheese has probably been nerfed in some way.

I might get it eventually. Fates kinda left a boring taste in my mouth in regards to fire emblem games. So I'll probably wait until I see continued hype after it's out or I watch a LP of it. It doesn't help that I'm cheap and really only spend money on my apartment, food, and utilities. I might ask for it for my birthday though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is a remake, so it probably won't be as bad as fates. Maybe. Hopefully.

 

I voted but will not specify the means of which I am getting the game cuz that's classified. ;)

I might consider asking my brother or mother of getting it for me for my birthday. (My birthday is too far into the year... but who fucking cares. :mellow: ) or again... once my happy ass gets a jobs and have the money to do so.  B)

Yeah, I do.

 

1. I need to stop playing Fates

2. I need to stop playing Pokemon/Pokemon ROMS

3. Besides Awakening/Fates, I haven't played any of the older games (I never got far in Sacred Stones or Shadow Dragon. RIP.) 

 

 

So this should be interesting. I've seen screenshots of the game on the Fire Emblem Wiki and for what it's worth, it looks pretty damn good.
