@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  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.

As the topic suggests. If so, what really bothers you the most? What elements do you like about it, if any?

 

For instance, is it the character designs? The fan service? the straight-up anime cutscenes? The over-the-top animations? :o Discuss/comment on others opinions too~

 

EDIT: Also, I made voting public for the lulz, but if you don't like your opinion being shared, then let me know and perhaps I'll change it. XP

I'm fine with super animu games, my only quarrel with SMTxFE is that it's honestly just looking like another Persona game with a Tiki cameo thrown in from what I've seen so far.


If you train your already good sense of proportion and get a better sense of shading and coloring... ...you really have great odds of being the next great customer around this forums and even FEND, congrats. :3

The only "anime" thing that really pisses me off about it is high school being shoved into everything. (even if this problem is by no means limited to Japanese media)

haha, perhaps you should view our trailer analysis. (Or you can view GameXPlain's lengthier one.) It's actually a lot deeper than just a Persona game with one Tiki cameo, though I'll admit it's definitely looking closer to Persona and SMT Devil Survivor than anything FE related. But since it's ATLUS developing the game (and I think the director is the guy who worked on the SMT DS series), and SMT is seemingly the core of the game (SMT is first in SMTxFE, if that means anything) this shouldn't be toooooo surprising, hopefully

 

The only "anime" thing that really pisses me off about it is high school being shoved into everything. (even if this problem is by no means limited to Japanese media)

 

lol yeah that's understandable, I think it's just the most relatable* for gamers or something, people are either going through it or have gone through it, it's been done a lot before so there's a lot to reference, etc., if it's not that they'd have to do a setting like college or an actual workplace (gasp) if they wanted to have characters interact frequently in real life, and those two might be harder and not as relatable, so eh... can't really disagree that the HS theme is getting old though lol, some do it really well, but meh

 

*not a word, I know, whatever

There's some college anime around, like Golden Time, Moyashimon, and...um...and um...um...uh....ugh nothing else comes to mind.

yeah the only one I could think of was Golden Time myself, and I didn't like that one for some reasons

 

indeed though

 

is the word relateable

 

did I really just spell it wrong all this time

 

man that is such a derp, especially for someone like me who is usually pretty freaking on top of things with his spelling (not bragging here, I just don't like misspelling things, and have always been a bit above average at spelling >_>)

 

welp, at least now I know

 

ugh can't believe it... *is ashamed in self*

While the game is really "anime", I'm fine with it since the game is trying to be more separate from FE and SMT than what people originally believe and it's pretty effective. I hope it won't turn into pretty much a Persona clone since it shows that it has more to it then it looks. I'm actually looking forward to the game, the analysis we did helped that out quite a bit.

I'm fine with the design so far personally. I'd really like to see intelligent systems get their hands in it a bit more, but I also trust Atlus to know what they're doing with an rpg. Even if it isn't a crossover so much as a hat tip to both series I think it'll be a solid game with a lot to offer.

yeah I mean I'm fine with it I just kiiinda wish the bikini-like outfits weren't really a thing since they don't feel like they're necessary/add to it at all, otherwise I'm excited

yeah I don't think that's going to happen haha, seems like in general they aren't really doing anything with development and just had some insight into the planning stages of the game (if that). I think the crossover thing comes down to definition but I see what you mean and agree in that I also think it'll have quite a bit to offer and make a solid console JRPG in general--not like we've been getting a lot of quality console JRPGs anyhow, especially of decent budget/length. the ones we do get tend to take a while to make too or have some other overbearing flaw(s), it seems >_>; so if the game is solid as a whole, despite whatever minor flaws/drawbacks it's bound to have, I think it'll have an audience lol

It's not really too anime for just its own thing, but as an SMTxFE game supposedly-

 

actually my biggest problem is just the zipper panties. Really WTF.

you're treading on such thin ice Cero, I'm so close to de-modding your 15 year old scrub self lol

 

like, this is not spam land, don't go making posts that contain nothing but a single "hashtag" in the first place. your derailing is off the charts

 

EDIT:

 

It's not really too anime for just its own thing, but as an SMTxFE game supposedly-

 

actually my biggest problem is just the zipper panties. Really WTF.

 

tbh when I voted "It's not terrible, but it's a little bit too much for my tastes" it was pretty much stuff like this that was vaguely in the back of my head or what have you

 

A couple of the design things are just a tiiiiny bit too much for me lol, I'd be fine with it otherwise, I mean I'm pretty sure I watch more anime than most people here

 

and I do get why people would think it's something different, but the creators of both SMT and FE are Japanese, and FE is becoming more "anime" (and always had some level of anime-styled art), and the SMT spin-off games have quite a bit of "anime" design/style in them (quotes on "anime" because I'm not really using it in its literal/proper definition, but hopefully everyone gets what I mean), so yeah... it doesn't surprise me too much

 

I think it'd be cool if at some point there were a completely different take on the crossover that was more like, hardcore traditional FE crossed with a darker SMT game with older less anime-esque character in something like a turn-based RPG, that would just be kind of on the opposite spectrum of an "SMTxFE" crossover, you know? I mean there's so many ways to go about it in general that having expectations was bound to make someone disappointed, lol. they can't make every potential variation of a mix between two games, there's just too many! so they settled for this! XP that's one way to look at it, anyway~

My current issue is I saw literally zero FE characters in the gameplay trailer. Granted I haven't played all the FE game so there could have been some and I just didn't know they were Fire Emblem characters.

Tiki was pretty recognizable, but no one else was 100% to me. Zipper panties might have been Lyn, and we got some blue haired dude (gee, that narrows it down...) as well as some red haired dude (better than blue hair, maybe?) and... yeah, that's kind of how it went.
